Latouche, in tiic name of the committee of agricul
ture, made a report on the law which commands the
drying up ef pouds j he developped the motives o:
nature —the neceffitiej o< animal* and of men, the pros
perity of agriculture itUlt, which IheWcd the necelf;:y
of at least moderating a law, which, in its generality,
is much more deltruclive than ufei'ul. He ad led w>
these general conSderations, tbofe of particular l<x-al
ities ; he made it appear that the fituaticn of Pcland,
for example, wfeich :s covered with poiida, proves the
necclfity of their preservation, became, If ijiey were
fupprelftd, countries would fail, not only of water for
animals, bat for men; the ardour of the tin would
dry up all the grass, aijd the vapours which would
rife from the earth, during two-thirds of the year,
would be more mortal than those which elcipt from
the waters j>f ponds. In fine, laid the repqrter, be
fore the revolution, particular interests caufej a »un»-
ber of ponds to be dried up, the fcitea of which be
came meadows or arable ground. The fupvj, effion of
the monriftic pr.lcrs has since encreafed. the drying tip
of ponds ; but it is not for a general law that we coiti
; mand'thc #gric|jl:ufal interest : it is not a general
' measure which' can make dried ponds fruitful. The
! nature of groustl ar.d local liruat.ons, may alone de
termine those waters arc nuisances. One ihould
not confound marikes with ponds ; the firft can never
produce, and can only be liu.fauces, and mufljurnifc
all the means of dellru<slion ; and remark, that the
law which shall osder the reduction of lirge ponds to
small ones, will make so many uuiianccj more dan
gerous tkan large ihcets of water. Beetles, this law,
in ordering the drying up of ponds, has excepted,
from necelfity, those ponds which fcrVe to maintain
canals: but there are an infinite number of ponds
which, without hiving a direiSl influence in support
ing canals, have oftentimes a very cor-fiderable part of
their communication with ponds reserved. —After ma
ny other refieftioiu, supported by fails, the reporter
presented the projeif, ol a decree, in rune articles,
which retrained the dispositions of the law of tise
14th Frimaire, to those ponds alone acknowledged to
be deflruflive of the health of man.
Seveftre, in the name ef the committee of general
