Several typographical and other
errors occurred in our lust issue in. con-
sequence of the lateness of the hour
at which we issued and absolute want
of time to correct. Please excuse us.
We had tiie pleasure of meeting

in. town on Triday. He js the same
lively, witty and gay Paunt. that we

We are informed by ' Rev. Mr.
Coons that a party of Indians, suppos-
ed to - be ten or twelve, visited his
neighborhood sixteen miles above
Belton, on th$ Lampasas, and stole
horses from different parties. A. bell
' horse was killed with arrows. The
peoplo of his neighborhood watch
their horses every night, as every, man
in--Stcr extreme western part of Our
' county should do if possible.

nificent stock of everything is begining
to arrive. From now until, you get
tried of buying (or broke) they will
' continue' to come. Don't be too ex-
travagant, but'just invest what spare

' An Invitation; _
We take it it upon ourselves to in-
vite every one to call on Mr. Methvin,
who has jjust returned from Alabama,
and learn the news from 'the Old States
and "lay in" something in tho dry
goods and grocery line betore you
leave. With the assistance of Mike
Light they can give yooi fun enough
for a small investment without wrap-
ping up the.bundles. Methvin & Light,
are exactly right. First poetry we ever
writ, by blood.
On yesterday evening we attended
tiie Monthly. Examination of the Belton
Academy. There were present the
Trustees and quite an. audience. The
srilall class in arithmetic more particu-
ularly attracted our attention. They
were quite perfect in their examina-
tion. There was also a class in Eng-
lish Grammer that acquitted them-
selves very. well. We milsi say that
the performances in the Dictionary
class can be vastly improved. Some
Compositions were read by the young
Itulies which did credit to" them as a
general thing. At night there was an
exhibition of compositions, dialogues,
speeches, Ac. Wc were unavoidably
prevented attending at night, but
w6 arc told it passed "off iu u very
pleasant manner indeed.

We have received the first No.
of the ''Coryell Frontiersman, publish-
ed by Brocket & Wells. It is quite a
neat paper in its mechanical depart-
ment, and contains a large amount of!
original and a well selected stock of
other matter. Our neighbor lias com-
menced, as he says, under some disad-
vantages, which we hope he will soon
overcome and establish a paper in our
neighbor County that will last forever
and do good service to its patrons.
