The WiTEK Ckkss is tow about the
best vegetable for sahd to be found about
our city, 'l'be late rains have given unu-
sual luxuriance to the plant. It grows in
tbe Sau Pedro, and tbe.ditcbes, in great
abundance. It .is much larger and better
where it has been enclosed, so as to be
protected from the cattle, as tbey are very
foad of it. ^

already reached Fredericksburg. They
have been steadily coming down the couu-
trv, keeping fair to the westward, and
doing comparatively little barm. Some
believe that the wet weather will tend to
prevent tbe successful laying of their
eggs, while others say tbat tbey will come
down in swarms with the first Norther.

"iVo» Twy Well."
A feeling of vague bodily discomfort,
which does not^araount to positive illness,
and yet is incompatible with health, is
often aptly described by tBe phrase, "Not
very well." This feeling usually arises
from a deficiency of the nervous power
which is required to keep the vital ma-
chinery in vigorous and healthful opera-
tion. Nervous weakness has too frequent-
ly turned out to be the prelude of some
serious malady to admit ot any doll't in
the matter. Inactivity of the bodily func-
tions as surely begets their derangement
as cause piacedes etleot.
It is therefore absolutely essential for
the preservation of health, perhaps of life
itselt, that this warning should be prompt-
ly heeded. The case does not admit of
delay. Revitalize the system at ouce and
effectually with Hostetter's Bitters—that
peerless iuvigoraut which, by infusing
new health and strength into the system,
protect it against dise.ise more surely than
ever knight of old was protected by armor
of proof against the foe.

one to nearly two o'clock this afternodn, a
fall shower has been pouring down. It
has been raiuiug every day, with a few
exceptions, for about two weeks. This is
very remarkable in such a country as
Western Texas. It is very disagreeable,
especially to a people who usually count
oil dry weather during tbe fall, and make
their arrangements accordingly. But it
also has its advantages. It comes ea'rly
enough to raise a tremendous crop of
grass, the source of great worfth in this
section of the State. We shall now have

San Antonio and Luling.—Now that
.the cars are'running regularly to Lnling,
connecting with stages to San Antouio, we
should like to know precisely the stage
distance between San Antonio and Luling.
The Austin Statesman says it is "sixty-six
miles ria Seguin." We have continually
heard that it is about fifty-five miles.
Moreover, we should like to know which
is the cheaper route to Houstou and Gal-
veston, by Luling or by Sau Antonio. Al-
so, which is the quickest route? Also,
the' hours of arrival and departure of
the new route ? Also, which is the best
road t In short, which is the route most
desirable for passengers? Inquiries in
relation to these matters are contimu-lly
made, and there is no satisfactory answer.
Mr. Upson.—Mr. Upson seems to be the
favorite of Democratic gamins, and is gen-
erally greeted with more enthusiasm than
the man for whom the meeting is gotten
up. Iu 1861, Mr. Upson, then a carpet-
bagger, from New York, concluded to for-
get his native State and become a south-
ern patriot, and forthwith engaged iu the
work of "tiring the Southern heart'
Fourteen years have passed away, yet
every one of onr citizens who heard Mr.
Upson then will recognize the same man
who on last Saturday night proclaimed
the same principles as he did in 1861. The
same effort to fire the Southern heart, the
same invective against the government
Perhaps te has visions of judgships in
Arizona, and soft places at a safe distance
from tbe front, in case the Confederacy
should again raise its bloody head.
Mr. Upson's style of oratory is decidedly
bnncomb ; he pitches his voice high, wags
his head furiously, gesticulates madly,
•and of course creates considerable enthu-
siasm from the crowd ; but for utter lack
of argument, empty declamation, and com
plete mixing up of everything, commend
ws to this orator of the Democracy. On
last Saturday we paid strict attention to
his speech, determined to be convinced n
to his real merits, and every intelligent
man who heard it must pronounce him a
mere declamatory, Democratic orator of
the old style, bo hurtful to the country.
In 1831 it was just this class of Northern-
Southern fire-eaters, whose more than
natural Southern enthusiasm placed them
in the lead in fanning the storm of civil
strife, and whose prudence and discretion
after the storm began, has spared them to
this day te beat the air with their empty
