was introduced into the world under the Indorsement
| of lour thouHaud leading in -inb.-M of tho medical pro-
fession. some twenty ye rs ago, its Proprietor was
; we'1 aware that it could uot wholly escape the penal
• ty attached to 11 new and useful preparations. He
j therefore, endeavored to invext It with the strongeLt
! possible safeguard against counter'eits. and to render
! all attempts to pirate It diffioult und dangerou". It
| was submitted to riutinguiabed chemists for analysis,
aud pronounced by them the purest spirits ever man-
ufactured. Its purity an I properties having been thus
! ascertained, samples of th* artlclo were forwarde I to
ten thousand physicians, Including all the leading
i practitioners in th;- United States, ior purpose of ex-
periment. A circular, requesting atrixlof the pre-
paration and report of the result, accompinied each
specimen. Four thousand of the most eminent mod-
leal men nthe Union promptly responded. Iheir
opinions of the article were unanimously "avorable.
Such a preparation, they said, had long been wanted
by the proiesMon, as no reliance could be placed on
the ordinary liquors of commerce, all of which were
more or less adulterated, and iherefore unfit farmed •
icinsl purposts. The peculiar txcellence and strength
of the oil ot' Juniper, which formed one of the princi-
pal ingredients of the Schnapps, together with an un-
alloyed character of the alcoholic element, give it, in
the estimation of the faculty, a marked superiority
over every other diffusive at.mulant as a diuretic,
tonic and restorative*

Dear Sir—I feel bound to ssy that I regard your
Bchnapps as belug in every respeot pre-eminently

safely prescribed by phydolans.

Dear fcir—I have made a chemical examination of
a Simple of your Sohlodam Schnapps, with the in
tent of determining If any foreign or injurious sub-
Hlauoo had been added to trie simple u tali lied epiiita.
The examination has resulted in the conclusion
that the sampio contained no p >Uouousor harinfu
admixture. I have been unable to discover any trace
oi the deleterious substunces which are employed in
the adulteiation oi liquors. 1 w->u'd not hesitate to
use myeelf, or to r commend to others, for medioal
purposes, the Schiedam Sohnapps as an exoellent

In an extract from the Repot t of
the Commissioner of Agriculture,
published in our Sunday's paper,
there was a statement that the value
of livo stock in Texas had decreased
considerably within twelve mouths.
The decrease is in tho value, not the
quantity of our stock. There bas
been an increase of nearly 20 per
cent, in quantity, but the prices have
declined. This is owing to the ab-
surd laws against driving Texas
stock in some of the Nortwliestem
States, and the fact that no success-
ful mode has yet been found for curing
our beef or transporting it safely to
market. This difficulty will be ob-
viated in time, and then we shall not

Texas cattle for their hides and
Unquestionably it will be more ox«
pensive for the people of Texas to
support a civil government than it
would to live under military gover-
nors sent here by the President and
paid out of the Federal Treasury.
Still we thiDk our people would pre
fer tho lestorntion of civil govern-
meLt rather than remain permaaentl;
under the authority of Lieutenants
sent out by the General in-Chief ot
the Army of the United States. But
we hope our Legislature will cxesci.-e
a rigid economy in the expenditure of
public money, and especially let
them avoid involving the State in
unnecessary expenditures. At pr«js«
ent our financial condition is hbalthy,
and woe bo to the party that swampa
us in heavy liabilities.

some of our exchanges manifest a dis
position to pitch into out Central Rail

new locomotives and one hundred and
fifty cars are now being prepared for
the road. Hands are at work extend-
ing the track from Bronbam towards
Austiu, and from Culvert towards Ri:d

they applied to the Commanding Gen-
General and obtaned two hundred pen •

they sent an agent to thoPaciflo coast,
who, at heavy expense, is returning
with between two handled and fifty
and three hundred Chiaese laborers.
The report published of the suc-
cessful and active and operations of
the Texas CeDtral Railroad, has had
a fine effect abroad upon tho reputas
of our State. Long live the Central!

A London journal remarks: "The
(Ecumenical Council would do ns a
service if they would propouud and
answer the question: 'Why is it that
Christianity aud civilization has fail-
ed to give us the manners of gentle-,
men?' On reading an account of the
inauguration otthe Suez Ctnal by the
Times' correspondent it is i mpnssible
not to be struck with the superiority
of the Arab over the Englishman in
this respect. We read that the
Arabs make way for a stranger with
if odinoeo and courtosy, never stare or
uff>;ct tho ill-bred ease, or indulge in
the chaffering of far bettr dressed mobs
in lands nearer home. On the other
hand, we read of the ridiculous and
unreasonable giumbling of the guests
of the Viceroy, and of a gentleman
demanding au audience of His Iiighn
ness for the purpose of complaining
that he had been put up to sleep in ft
double bedded room."

We clip the following from the
Gonzales Index :
Corn is plentiful in the country at
75 cents per bushel, though mer
chants in town sell at $1. aud we so
quote it. Pork is plentiful at 6 cents
per pound—some selling lower.
The tumor came to town ou Moos
day that the body of VV. D. Buss had
been found on the road near Five
Mile Creek, in this county, peiforated
with bullet holes. Suspicion rested
bo strongly upon two brotneis-in-law
ef Bass, mimed Avent, that they wero
at once accused of the murder. Jim
Avant has been arressted and parties
are in search of tho other. The
rumor farther says that Jim was
bound over for his appeuranco at
| court. We have boaid no particnlars.
The Galveston News reminds lm
migiants entering our State that the
expense of biinging old trumpery to
Texas is a good deal more than it Is
worth alter it, reaches here. We like
the following suggestion very much :
We have said the complaints urged
against parties at shipping points were
comparatively few, wo think tlfero
should be such arrangements made as
would prevent any at all, aud in view
of tho immense value these immi-
grants are to the State and the ne-
cessity we are u'ider of encouraging,
by all means lo onr power, a contin-
uauce of the stream now pouring iuto
tho State ftoiu every direotiou, the
City Cbuncil t-bo Id take the matter
in hand aud detail a competetent man
from the police lorce, or employ a man
especially to watch the interest of im-
migrants arriving heic, and see that
they are pioperly can d for when de-
detained. and that their baggage and
effucis are forwarded without o her
