Why it is that the great and migluy

Trrm New York JTerall talks about
civil war being a great evil but that it
is better than lota of liberty. This is
.the seme view that has been taken ot
the matter at the Sooth. But the
Southern States are now in repose;
the negroes are going to the bosoms of
their Northern political admirers and
Mtine is the tceneof strife and the
North the battlefield if there be one.
It leads us to rt fleet happily on Mac-
bcth's celebrated challenge to his op-
Tub Memphis Appeal says the Dem-
cratic party is ready to endorse all the
Republicanism that the TVi&Kas can
discover in Thoa. F. Bayard. Since

ate of the United States opposed all
the extreme measures of the Radicals
and has labored to obliterate sectional
hatred. The pop!e of the South viv-
idly remembi r bow long and how often
he has lilted bis voice in their behalf
and how faithfully be has striven to

Maligners are always forced into
false positions to maintain their accu
sations. It has been said that Demo-
cratic administration has arrested the
course of emigration towards Texsf
when it is simply a legitimate result
of the times. For nearly a decade the
commercial and business world bat
been struggling in the throes of a
financial crisis that within that time
has robbed millions of people of all
wealth. This crisis at lsst having its
end was only a result of the inevita-
ble laws that govern these strange rev
olutions and which are periodically
enforced with probably no greater de
gree of reason than govern legislatures
in creating evil laws. But this un-
rqualed depression in the business of
the world has been felt in every part
of the habitable globe. More misery
has been known in European nations
during the Wt half dozen years than
at any time since deadly plagues of the
EiSt devastated its populations and
struck terror and dismay into every
aitcry of human industry. During these
years the maritime nations of the world
have been particularly inactive and
commercial naviep with ntked masts
and stripped liaM&rdsand empty holds
have rested quietly within ?ocks. Not
until five years ago did Texas begin
eeriouely to feel the common depres-
sion. Even with bouutiful crops and
with good pnees for every class of pro-
duce however the began to assume the
fashion cf the time and since that day
until this the chief topic of conversa-
tion eniotg Tixaos has been "hard
times." Every yesr there were more
bales of cotton and excellent crops of
c rn and w! cat and out? and more cat-
tle and horses and sheep and go.tsand
hogs than ever before; but the inevita-
ble law prevailed and even the f-pecter
of starvation was contiuually rising
oftener before the rich than the poor
and the people of the Line Star State
were at least in an imaginary which is
a bad as a really wretched condition.
Up to 1874 foreign immigration poured
into the State and for a year or so
longer a ttoady living itream from the
oldci Slates of ' the .Union continued
to fliw in'.o its l o-.iers; but soon all
i flux ceatt.d and for over two yea s
immigration ha b-;;n insignificant. Mv
liguers ani chokers seme of whomprr-
bably.hife been the very men who were
atarviug in the mid t of plenty lack-
ing of course not only rwson but
generous iuipnlsea havo persistently
attributed this falling oil of immigra-
tion to the ahott-coming8 of our State
government. When we think of the
condition of"-.ffiirs throughout the
world it seems strange indeed that
anybody would'so dittort sensibility
as to allow himself to believe any such
theory. Emigration erased from the
old world and from the Staler of the
new because nobody was abio to real-
ize money upon the sale of lands or
upon peronal propeity. People
however anxious to change their
abodes could not do so because of bus-
iness stagnation ships were tied up
and in this tima Texas has realized no
benefits from immigration. It is a
well-known fact that Cist'-c Garden
the great immigrat Vi rendezvous in
New York city ft emigrants from
the old world was abandoned for sea-
sons as an immigrit's home and
where thousands lancred daily in past
years where all was Vimmotion and a

whi'e the cost of feeding stock is ten

as those of any country on the face of

health than these of Texas. No won-
der the populations of old and crewded
countries along with returning pros-
perity begin to look to Texas and
when these Europeans learn that the
negroes are leaving these fertile lands
entirely to white mn they will be
more anxious than ever to cast their
destinies with ns. There are now in
Texas 1600000 whites and less than
400000 negroes. In 1800 there will
be 5000000 of whites and less then
200000 negroes. The assessed values
tor 1SS0 wilt be 1050000000; those
of 1S90 will be fl0000000C0. Our
crop ot cotton now is 800000 bales
and ten years hence it will be 2000000.
There axe now nearly 2000 miles of
completed railway ia Texas and three
years hecce it will be twice this amount.
With a population tqaal in density to
that of New York Texvi is capable of

pared to that of. Massachusetts it
would bs 51.035000: and to
that of tl.C Islaud of B-rba!oee it
would reach nearly 300000000. Al-
ready Texas is raising meat for the
Northern States of the Union and
English people are also preparing to
draw heavily from uj. The mineral
and agricultural and grtz'ug resources
of Texas are bonndle9e and the water

THE STATE PRESS.
In view of the fact that th C nsti-
tution atd Democracy have been out
raged in the passage of the legal ten
der act the San Antonio Ilerahl in-
quires: We shall be glad at any time that
Senator Coke may deem it expedient
to learn w hat the S.-uator proposes to
do with the legal tender notes finally ;
whether he finds uuihorijy in the Con-
s' itut ion for legal tender currency?
Whether he holds to the doctrine of
strict construction as applied to Fed
eral money? Another thing would bt
in the opinion of the llerall very de-
s rable tor Snator Coke to do viz.
to show before the Biyard movement
goes too far how Mr. bayard is un
sound oc the tariff question for this
ia one of the most important points to
the S uth.
The same paper dares to comment
noon the habit of outs attacking ins in
the following style.
Republicans of Austin who favor
some one ambitious of obtaining the
office ot United States marshal are car-
rying a pit tion round and soliciting
eigna urea (r the removal of S. II.
Russell. S far at the lltmld is in-
formed there ia nothing new happen-
ing to induce the disaaiutlud Republi-
cans to expect Eiicctss. The move-
ment ia probably merely a fuither
sym torn of chronic itching for flice.

good c';tz-n ia often badgered into

body but ia not so ensily induced

be simply a stouter partisan but noth-
The Galve ston News indulged in free-
dom with Hon. John Hancock's name
and the result is. he is getting just now
a good deal of gratitoua notice with-
out the least solicitation. The Bren-
ham Banner says:
Many of the newspapers both in and
out of this congressional district are
disposed to throw cold water on the
Galveston News' proposition to run
Hon. John Hancock as an independent
candidate for congress at the coming
election next fall. Sticn a course would
only result in the defeat of the Inde-
pendent and the Democratic nominees
nnd the success of the Republican can-
didate whoever he might be whether
Davis Jones or any other man. It
may be very pleasant for some oppo-
nents of the Democratic party to rail
about the party lash and party nomina-
tions but when it comes to an election
it is always found that the Republican
ring-masters hold the whip aud every

Senator Bayard answers a letter from
a gentleman of Baltimore by whom he
was asked to give reasons why in his
resolution regarding legal tenders he
excepted duties or imports. In reply
Mr. Bayard says:
The officials and pa ty m'ruted with
the administration of the United States
government in 18C2 borrowed money
"on call" from the people ard issu
ing the treasury demand notes made
tnem a torcea loan and created them a
currency because they made them by
law "a legal tender for all debts pub
lic and private except interest on the
public debt and duties on imports as
you will see by reading the superscrip-
tion on any of these notes.
In 1862 when the present bonded
debt was commenced an act of Con
gress was passed which provided that
"all duties on imported goods" should
be pata in coin" nnd "net aside as a
special fund :" First for the payment
of interest on the public debt ; second
as an annual sinking fund to pay the
principal of such debt.
Under this distinct pledge the Unite. 1
States borrowed the money which ia
now represented by our present bonded
Although in my judgment it was
unwise and derogatory to the dignity
and character of a great government
like our own thus to pledge in Fpt cial
revenues for the payment of its obliga
tions yet the lact remains it was
done and being done by the elected
agt-nts of the government we caa not
now disown or qualify it.
The American people eaw fit to place
these agents in power and if they
acted improvidently or unwisely it i-
too late now to disavow their author-
ity. It is our misfortuse but the
maxim is "respondent superior" the
principal is liable for the acts of his
agent within the scope of his auihori-
However unwise we may consider t
that in 1802 the party in charge of the
Government declared by law the da-
ties ou imports ahou'd be pv-b!eio
coin" smoLiisetspari." that "coin" a
a "Bpecial fundtajwy the interest
and create an annual sinking fund to
pay the principal of the national debt
and expressly denied power to their
ibsnes of treasury notes to pay such in-
terest or such duties on Import yet
the fact remains they did so. The
result is that we as citizens ot the
Government which is "not for a day
bnt for alt time" as we hope mutt
keep these pledges inviolate in letter
and in spirit.
The best investment we can make of
our present gains and prosperity is to
establish high and unimpeachable
public credit; and let it be known and
proclaimed that when republic n Amer-
ica gives ber word all her sons will
see that it is kept no matter what in-
convenience it causes.

tend ihe movements uf both national
and ttate orgin.;zitionsl it is clear
that the national democratic conven-
tion rtmt be held in advance ol
state nominating conventions. What
is tbo best plan to be pursued by
the party in Texas in moyiug towards
the ends t be attained is subject for
seiiou contemplation. Delegates for
the national couvention muit be pre-
pared to ake part in the
consultations and selections ot the
party but it is a mooted q lestion how
thi"!-e delegi-t a should be selected.
The Statesman is positively opposed
on principle to the exerut:v commit-
tee of Texa acting alone in the prem-
.9cp but expediency and the impossi
biity perhaps or orHn'zing two
popular conventions iu n short space
of time may render the action rsf 'he
commit t.-c alone matter of necessity.
There are mauy objections however
to the committee having entire control
of the selection of de'egites to th
uU'.onal convention. The committee
men were elected nearly two years
ago when the many members of the
democratic p:irty entei tuned fanciful
and not statesmanlike views as to what
the party should do. Thtrre was a
wavering as to policy wheu the last
convention was held; there were hard
money Democrats and some x5eeding-
ly soft mvney D .-ia' Cratf; there were
some pronouoceti Dc-m -.:-;ts but the
majority were eviuemly weak-kneed
and went around with their shank
knocking agninat ench other at the bare
sight of a Oreenbacker. Bat expe-
rience is always a good doctor and
while weak points have been tdrcngth-
etitd we hardly know the txict
weight lit -it individual members of the
committee my bo nlilo to carry.

mny exert an influence in Texas to de-
feat suppoit of Mr. Biyard would be a
matter of disgrace to the State party and
that one or more may arrange that Gen.
Hancock or Mr. Hendricks or the ven-
erable Seymour shall not haye the sup-
port of the Texas D mocracy would be
a sad rill;ct;on upon its character. It
ii not in positivo opposition to this fea-
ture of the case that the Statesman dis-
cusses this question in this manner
for as admitted it may be necessary
for the committee alone to select dele-
g.tea. It would be preferable to have
selections made in convention but
should the committeemen be called
upon to act it is desired that they shall
understand fully the 11 flueoces oper
