Theke is a gentle maiden in the aity,
and we have no doubt she is beautiful, for
she has a sweet voice and a fine touch on
the guitar, who holds forth near one of our
churches, especially on those evenings
when service is being performed. It she
would play at some other time the church
attendants would have a better opportun-
ity of hearing her, without being inter-
rupted by th# music and service in the

Health—It is remarkable that no sick
or feeble looking people can be found
among the residents of San Anionio, with
the exception of very old people, those
who have been hurt in some way, or those
who hurt themselves by excessive habits
of indulgence. All feeble looking people,
or invalids found here, are t hose who have
eeught this invigorating and genial cli-
mate for their health, There are many
such here now, and they are constantly ar-
riving. When the railroad reaches here it
will bring thousands ot them. Let them
come, and get well.
Our Railroads.—The Galveston rail-
road will boou bo here, connecting us with
that city and with Houston ; the Interna
tional railroad will probably soon follow,
connecting us with Austin ; and both will
give us choice of routes to tlio rest of Tex-
as aud the rest of the Union. But we
want three strings to our bow, instead of
only two, and this induces us to ask of our
friend of the Indianola Bulletin, or any
other man who can tell, when we uiay ex
pect connection with Indianola by the
Morgan road ? Au immense trade will be
concentrated at Sau Antonio from the
West and Mexico as the railroads reach
here. Does the Morgan road want its share
of it? Let us hear.
Kakbeu's Garden is now open to the
public at all times of the day, and will be
illuminated every evening. Ladies and
gentlemen will tind all kinds of uccommo'
dations and good, coul beverages of every
Advertising. — Our advertisers are,
many of them, among the largest dealers,
in their respective lines, in the city aud
country, and they are all doing a good bu-
siness. Those who do not iulvert:se in the
Express are neglecting their own inter-
ests. It is read very generally in the city,
in the State, and out, of i;'; and, as we
shall soon eularge. it, and greatly strength-
en its editorial stall', and as the railroad
will soon be here, and as our circulation
will iucrease much more rapidly, our bu#i
ness men would do well to put their ad-
vertisements in now. We shall improve
the Express just as business improves, un-
til We make it a large, first-class daily
Notice the Public.
If you want a No. 1 Mower or a Mower
and Reaper combined, come and see us, we

less price than any other machines. Call
and see them at our place f>4 & M Com-

the State to cut grass with them.

The Rain continued to fall at intervals
last night and this morning, in soft and
gentle showers, whilo the moist clouds
protected the earth from the burning sun,
and the whole atmosphere was charged
with moisture ; as if nature's fevered brow
and body were mercifully allowed to en
joy cold applications, or were snugly
packed away iu a huge water cure estab-
lishment. The rain is of the very best
sort for the grass and the crops. It has
not fallen in torrents, to bake and wash
the fields, and rush off to the streams,
leaving little moisturo behind ; bnt it has
fallen almost like a huge bnt gentle dew,
allowing every drop its largest benefit.
We have not had enough yet, bnt we
have a prospect of plenty before it ceasjs.
We judge from appearances that the rain
is pretty general, and the crops of the
State will probably be abundant. Let
immigrants come by hundreds of thou-
