|ar The tw¿> documenta copied below will
partially explain themselves. Tlie reasons for
publishing them however need be told. When
our esteemed fellow citizen Mr. N. W. Bush,
was last in Sempronius, he was told that "they"
meaning h¡B friends, had a good joke on him:
that a negro boy had been put in jail in Ban
Antonio* in whose possession was-found a paper
purporting to be a free pass, on whloh was his,
Mr. B.'s name. Mr. B. immediately demanded
that the paper should be shown to him, and
that he should be allowed to make such use of
it. as be deemed proper—stating that such a
thing was rather too serious to make a Joke of,
even among friends. Col. Landes immediately
surrendered the paper accompanied with the
certificate which is published below it. It will
be observed that the "Free paper" purports to
have been made 24 years ago last March. It
starts out with a barefaced falsehood—Hopkins-
Tille is not in Trigg, but in Christian county,
and it is altogether about as lamea document as
we have ever seen. It does not require an expert
to tell that the whole thing "signatures and any"
wasjwrittcn by the same person: and that person
about as ignorant as the parties who permitted the
boy Tom to make his way as far West as San
Antonio with it.
The names Bush, Bush and Hush signed to it
would indicate that the good people of Trigg
county were, 84 years ago, vary fond of names
for the Inferior justices terminating in u h.
Joking asido, no one who knows Nathan W.
Bush would for a moment dream that he would
append his name to any document but a proper
one; but lest some evil-minded person should
have told this "joke"¡¡ to his detriftient in a
community where he is not so well known as in
Austin and the adjoining counties, he has
thought proper to thus "nip the thing in
the bud."
The two documents are in our possession, and
we have published the "Free pass" verbatim, et
literatim, et tpellatim.

Know te, whom it may concern, that a rumor
has gone abroad that the uanio of N. W. Bush,
R. A. Husk and others, was found to appear in
a certain document purporting to be a free pass
for a mulatto boy, Tom, tho property of Col. D.
Landos, and tho said Bush and Husk, having
called on said Landes for said pass—find the re-
port unfounded. Tho names, which appear in
fact, on tho said paper, as will be seen from the
document itself, is John F. Rush, Abr. D. Bush
and James A. Hush.
I the said D. Landes, owner of said boy, Tom,
with several of my neighbors, do horeby certify
that tho above three names on said pass, are
correctly given; this May the 27th, A. D. 1856.

The thoughts that deepen while I gaze on thoe,
What halowed fancies of the long past scenes
That were enactcd neath thy spreading tree.

When strong men spurned the tyrants galling

And watered with their blood our nativo

As from oppression, their free spirits broke.

The secret murderer and tho open foe—

Ratification meeting at Hem-
stead, Austin County.
Pursuant to publlo notice, a meeting of the
Democracy of Austin county was held at Hemp-
stead, on tho 14th of Mnv, to ratify the proceed-
ings of the Democratic State and Congressional
convention bold at the city of Houston, May 1st,
1859.
Dc. J. M. Thompson, was called to the chair
and H. II. Boone, appointed Secretary.
On motion, a committee consisting of D. S.
Hill, H. G. W. Cloud, J. M. Batemon, Dr. J.
R. Carr, T. M. McDade, D. Y. Portis and Dr.
R. It. Peebles, were appointed to draft a resolu-
tion expressive of the sentiments of tho meet-
ing- •
The committee through their chairman D. S.
Hill, reported the following preamble and
resolutions which were unanimously dopted.
Whereas, the Democratic conventions of the
State of Texas and the western Congressional
District lately assembled at tho city of Houston
—adopted as a platform of principals, the Plat-
form of the Democratic convention of the United
States at Cincinnati, in 1860, and the platform
adopted by the Democratic Convention of the
State of Texas at Waco, in 1857, together with
an additional resolution declaring the peaceable
acquisition of the Island of Cuba, an object of
paramount importance to the commerce of the
United States, and additional resolutions in favor
of an extmdition of fugitive slaves from Mexico;
and In favor of the continuation of the Southern
mail route from New Oi leans by El Paso and
San Francisco;
Whereas, the said conventions selected as
candidates for State offices, tho present able and
worthy incumbents of the Gubernatorial, the
lieutenant Governor and Commlswonor of the
General Land office, and the District Convention
nominated our able, talented and pmtriotic fel-
low citizen Gen. T. N. Waul, of Gonzales county,
as the condidate for Congress. Therefore re-
solved,
1st. That tho Democrcy of Austin county,
most heartily endorse tho platform resolutions
of the Democratic State Convention of the State
of Texas, as most eminently conservative and pa-
triotic, and as being a true and just exponent of
the orthodox Democracy of the State of Texas.
2nd. Resolvod, That wo regard the nomina-
tion of H. R. Runnels, for Governor, F. R. Lub-
bock, f$>r Lieutenant Govomor and Francis M.
White, fo%commissIoner of the General Land
Office, as a tribute of regard and esteem justly
due to faithful and meritorious public officers, for
the zeal and ability which they have each dis-
played in tho discharge of the important trusts
confided to them by tho People.
3rd. Resolved, That we regard the nomina-
tion of Gen. T. N. Waul, for Congress, as a most
fortunato and opportune selection, as one whose
eloquence an'tl patriotism will enable him to bear
the standard of Democracy in triumph, upon
ovcry battle field of the District, and to sustain
and promote tho best Interests of Texas, in our
National Councils.
4th. Resolved, That the Democracy of Aus-
tin county will give a most cordial and trium-
phant support to each of the nominees, for State
and District officers.
Upon motion of Dr. B. R. Peebels, it was
Resolved, 6th. That the Hon. C. W. Buckley,
of Fort Bend county, is tho choice of this meet-
ing as tho democratic candidate for Floater, from
the counties of Fort Bend and Austin, and that if
he will consent to run this meeting will give him
a hearty and cordial support. All of which mo-
tions were unanimously adopted by the meet-
ing.
6th. Resolvod, That tho proceedings of this
meeting bo forwarded to the Houston Telegraph
with the respectful request to the Editor of that
paper that he will | uhlish the same, and that

There being no other business before the

H. H. Boqmk, Sec'y,
Late from tiih Skat of War.—Liverpool,
May 11.—Tho latest ad vicos rcccávod from
Turin and Vienna state that no general engage-
ment had yet taken place between tho Austri-
an and Sardinian troops in Piedmont.
The Austrians in Piedmont appear to beexibi-
ting much indecisión by marching and counter-
marching, occupying and abandoning various
positions, apparently without motive.
No material chauge has taken place in the
stato of afliairs in Italy since the sailing of the
Canada.
The heavy rains previously reported contin-
ued at tho latest accounts, and very much impe-
ded the opporations of the Austrian troops on
the river Po.
An official bullotin at Vienna statos that the
Austrian army was awaiting the return of bettor
weathor before again assuming offensive opera-
tions. No general battle was expected for a
week or ten days.
Departure of the Emperor.—Pari , May
11.—The Emperor Napoleon, accompanicd by
Princo Napoleon, left Paris for Toulon yesterday
tho 10th Instant, from which placo tho Emperor
proceeds to Genoa by sea, and Prince Napoleon
proceeds to the Adriatic with the 25,000 men
assigned to hiscommad.
Previous to leaving Paris the Emperor pro-
claimed tho Empress Eugenie Regent of France.
The Sardinians are making great preparations
to give tho emperror a magnificleut reception
on h s arrival at Genoa.
Operations in Italy.—Advices from Turin
stato that General Marmora had made tho river
Dora his strategetical line of operations against
tho Austrians.
The Austrians are strongly fortifying the posi-
tions they oocupy on tho nver Segia.
The French Marshal Canrobort has assumed
tho direction of the allied operations at Allessan-
drin.
Much sickness prevails among the Austrian
troops, owing to their extreme exposure and the
inclemency of tho weather.
It is reported that Austria will soon have
750,000 troops under arms.
Anconahad boon declared In a state of siege
by the Austrian Commandant of the garrison.
The Popo liad protested against such severe
measures and the Austrian Government promt
seg to re-consider tho matter.
The Tornado at Memphib.—Tho Memphis
Bulletin, of the 17 th, thus notices the tornado
at that place, of whloh we had a brief aocount by
telegraph :—Exe.
About 12 o'clock last night this vicinity was
visited by a severe tornado of wind, accompa
nied by rain and hail, which we apprehend hat
been quite destructive to property within its
course. The wind, which was absolutely ter-
rific in force and violence, came fiom the west,
and prevaled forabout minutes, unroofing houses
and playing sad havoc among the signs, awn
ings, ect. The entire east wall of the cotton
shod on the corner of Union and Second sec-
ond streets, was blown down, and a small frame
house in the vicinity entirely unroofed. A por-
tion of the tin-roofing of Mr. I. B. Kirtland's
banking house was wrenched from its fastenings
and deposited in the center of Madison street,
3osito our office. Doubtless many other
dings in the city have sufforcd in a similar
manner, but tho lateqess of the hour prevents
the gathering of reliable information on the sub-
ject.
The Bulletin, of tho 18th. fornlshes the fol-
lowing further particular* of the damage done:
In addition to the destruction by the storm
of Monday nlgt, already Vecorded, we learn
that a large frame building oil Beal street, be-
longing to Mr. B. Merril, was blown down,
striking and razing to the ground a buisness
house in the same locality, the property of Mr.
Want. Oiie end of Mr. Want's large two story
warehouse also fell, knocking in one end of an-
other one of his houses adjoining. A portion
of the froqt end of the livery «table of R. Whit-
ney, on Main street, was blown down, and a
part of the wall of the new block of buildings
on Monroe street, being erected by Stfflmns
Ac., was also prostrated.
