I’d rather walk through shower with thee,
Than with another when the air
Is soft with summer, and as fair
The heavens above us as a sea
Of dim, unfathomed sapphire, where,
Slow drifting on a liquid sky,
The white-sailed ships of God float by
Sweeter in storm to be with thee,
Dark waters ’round us, and the roar
Of breakers on an unseen shore
Resounding louder on the lee,—
Than with another sailing o’er
A rippling lake, where angry gale
May never rend the silken sail.

20 miles. Its water is pure, clear, abounds

fencing and house framing purposes. Fine
lumber at small expense, is obtained from the
nearest Railroad. Quarries of both Lime-
stone and Freestone abound and are so even-
ly stratified and cross seamed that all are
suited for fencing, with a large percentage
fitted for house walls without the use of a
square or stroke of a hammer.
EALHTH AND WATER.
Of an elevation of 1,600 feet above the ocean
and from 500 to 1,000 feet greater than Saint
Louis, Memphis, or the black land belt East
of it. An absence of swamps or marsh and
great remoteness from them. With pure,
bracing air, is a warranty against malarial
diseases, and of immunity from almost every
ill, which with its springs of healing water,
invite and becoming better known will at-
tract invalids from other lands for a renewed
lease of life. Most streams supply excellent
fresh water. Well water is generally ob-
tained in abundant supply at from 12 to 35
ITS GRASSES—AS A STOCK COUNTRY.
Here, all varieties of the Mesquite grasses
abound and attain perfection—the oat, rye,
curley, mellow, wire and blue, possess a
marvelous degree of richness, which matur-
ing in the order of their various species, sup-
ply pasturage without intermission. This
region iu the hot weather months is more ex-
empt from stock-flies than any other States,
therefore the growth of young and fattening
of old stock is less retarded, all of whicq
with mild winters render it a superior region
for cattle, horses, sheep, goats and hogs,
which thrive and reach a marketable age, at
but a fraction of what they would cost raised
in the Northern States.
SOIL, PRODUCTS AND SOCIETY.
The soils of both valley and upland from
color are denominated Cray, Chocolate and
Mahogany and generally rest upon a fine
tenacious subsoil from red to vermillion in
color, all are rich, friable, easy tilled and
pleasant to dwell upon, travel over or culti-
vate, even during long wet spells, and resist

Rapid and large incoming of farmers,
stockraisers, huntesr artisans and capital
gave almost magic impetus to its growth and
thrift—an animated, healthy, substantial ad-
vancement of every branch oi industry and
business, which local and far-reaching ex-
traneou causes and influences will likely in-
crease with certain and enduring force. In
almost the limit of the past eight months (now
Jan. 1877,) it has attained many comfortable
and cosey dwellings. Stores of General Mer-
chandise, Family Groceries, one Drug Store,
one Bakery and Restaurant, two Hotels, two
Shoe Shops, one Saddle and Harness Shop

with a certainty that by the time they can get

cross this region viz: The Texas & Pacific,
Trans-Continental, Atlantic & Pacific, Waco
and North-Western, Houston & Denver and
Galveston & Sante Fe, and that meantime ail
products will find a ready market at high
prices. It is obviously best that Emigrants
