The Fredericksburg Sentinel says
that Mr. Schleicher is a native Ger-

1845 at the age of 22. He settled
in San Antonio and won the confi-

ability as an engineer, and as a
member of the Legislature of Texas.
During the war he was a faithful
friend to the now "Lost Cause" and
still affiliates with Southern princi-

Great sorrow is expressed in
Democratic journals over the death
of Maj. Gourdain, S. B. Newman,
Maj. Robin, and other estimable
citizens, slain in the late rebellion
in New Orleans. We sorrow for
them also, but we sorrow most of
all that such worthy men should
have lost their lives iu the act of
treason and murder. But we sor-
row still more for the men who lost
their lives on the other side, in the
discharge of their sworn duty.
The San Marcos Free Press learns
that the Central railroad has en-
gaged to transport cotton lrom tiiat
region for half the rates previously
asked. It then adds: "So much
for the influence of Luling. But
Luling lost this time by being
too slow." But we ask, who and
what made Luling too slow? The
answer is, Coke aud Morgan, in
stopping the International railroad,
which crippled the Tierce railroad,
to the great injury of San Marcos,
Luling, San Antonio, and all the
West. Shall we vote for the can-
didate of the huge monopoly indi-
cated in this move of the Central ?

A graduate from the University of Co-

the University of Padova, Italy; for sever-
al years assistant Physician to to the cele-
brated Prof. Ricord, Paris.
Having been for years a student at the
large hospitals of Paris, London, Vienna
and Copenhagen,and a thorough,large and
varied practice during 15 years' has gain-
ed the most thorough knowledge of the
nature of all chronic diseases| and the
treatment thereof, and he has in his ex-
tensive practice^ had an unparalleled suc-
cess, and very often effected a cure where
every remedy had beeli tried and all hope
of restoration of Lealth had been despair-
Nabody who ever sutfered of the tedious

— has ever in vain callee on Dr. Bille. In
every case lias he by his new method of
treatment restored the functions of the
stomach, and with it thegliealth and vigor
of the patient, and many a| person does to-
day, with gratitude, recall the moment
he placed himself under Dr. Bille's cure.
For his treatment of LADIES'DISEAS-
ES, Dr. Bille is deservedly renowned, and
no lady suffering from AMENORRHtEA,
HYSTERIA, PROLAPSUS UTERI.or any
other disease peculiar to the female system
should fail to call ou Dr. Bille, as they
will quickly be releived of their rnftering
and ultimately restored to perfect health.
Disenses ofit Private Nature
Dr. Bille has made a speciality, and this
scourge of humanity, unsuccessfully treat-
ed by uiost practitioners, is easy and
quickly overcome by his new treatment.
Being a pupil of the most renowned Phy-
sician for syphilitic diseases in the world,
Prof. Ricord, ill Paris, Dr. Bille will al-
ways gnaraatee a cure in any case ot
syphilitic disease which may come under
his treatment; ami hundreds in this city
and vicinity can testify that in cases of

have failed, Dr. Bille has always been

Dr. Bille wishes to oall particular atten-
tion to his now discovery, by which he
can, by the help of microscope and chemis-
try, discover if there is -any syphilitic
poison in the blood, which is of the great-
est importance, as persons having had
venereal diseases often believe themselves
cured, and the poison still remains in tha
blood to break out sooner or later. Dr.
Bille has resided in New Orleans for years,
is endorsed by the best eitizens there, and
