Th* Vicb-Prksipenxjy.—In placing Gen. Me*
mucan Hunt before the people of this citfand coun-
ty as a candidate for tta vice-presidency of this re.
public in preference to Col. Monard,wtdo«o under
the full conviction that Gen. Hunt's claims upon the
people of this republic,aré founded in justice. We
think Col. Menard a gentleman and onewho would,
no doubt, be a good , officer if elected, yet we do no1
think that he has tliose prominent recommendations
which cafi be juptly ascribed tsfllen. Hunt
To shew to what we allude, we have given below
a short sketch of the different relations in which Gen.
Hunt has stood to the people of Texas, during 4he
timo that he has beenjn the country, a period of five
y ears. In all of whi^h has acted upon the most ho-
norable and exalted principles.
In March, 1836, Gen. Hunt was appointed Brig
General, through Gen. Dunlap, by the provisional!
In the June following he was appointed Major
< icneral by the same p<*wer.
In the December of the same year he was sppomt
that they will find^tonjty oil
hands to meet them. There ate too
i d Envoy Extraordinary and Minister I'lempoten- "edited by CTeorge ML
tiary near the Government of the United States, at
Washington, where he remained until May, 1898.
He was afterwards appointed Secretary of the Na*
vy, in the December of the same year, which office
he resigned in May, 1839.
In December of 1839 he was sent as Commission-
er to define and establish the boundary line with the
United States and proceeded to the discharge of his
duties in January, 1840, in connexion with which he
remained until about June of the same year.
There are many important incidents connected
with, these various delicate and important stations
which, at a future time we shall to some extent allude.
There is, however, enough in this brief outline to
shew that Gen. Hunt has always' been looked upon
with confidence by the government, and one thing ig
most certain, that he has always been the warm and
ilevoted friend of Texas.
When Gen. Hunt visited the United States, by his
eloquence and energy he gained many friends for our
country in her darkest hour. In principle he is
purely a democrat; in manners pleasant yet unassu<
ming and readily accomodates himself to the tastes
and feelings of those with whom he comes in contact
In comparing, the two nominations which have
been made in this city, we cannot but think that the
advantage oí claim, if any, lies with Gen. Hunt, who
will run a& the people's candidate without reference

There is a project on foot in Houston, of erecting
church upon the broad and liberal principles of
equality, to which all denominations of christians
will have an equal light to resort as a place of wor-
The Houston folks are famous for starting the
building of churches but are unfortunate in complet-
ing them. There now stands a handsome unfinished
building, erected foi a church, at the head of Main
street, which is a reproach to the citizens of that en-
lightened community. We trust that they may be
more fortunate with the contemplated building.

be valued more highly:—Civiluu^.
It is always best to think less of one's self than
that we know to be our actual worth. We do not,
wish, in these hard times, to place a false value upon
out services like some of our neighbors, who care
not whether they make much or tittle^ as their ex-
