Comparatively speaking, Texas is a
vast expanse of wildernesses, modified
here and there with dots of population,
patches of cultivations, and those chan-
nels of trade and travel wliich form the
arterial system of civilization. Of our
Texas wildernesses, none ie more re-
markable than that which is just now
the subject of some animated corre-
spondence in the News. We refer to
fie southeastern region of the Sta'e
which, though abounding in diver-
sified resources and attractions,
was for many years singularly seques-
tered, unnoticed and obscure. Until
lately railroad enterprise failed to pene-
trate it, westward streams of popula-
tion flowed around it, and left its small
population to conditions in every way
unfavorable !o social and material pro-
gress. It is not strange that such a
population should be found to reflect
in their salient virtues, and in some
characteristics which are not com-
monly esteemed as virtues, the
silent but inexorable influences of their
environments. According to such
writers as Taine in France, and Pro-
fessor Draper in the United States,
men, taken individually or collective
ly, are very much the creatures of their
physical circumstances. Draper traces
the late civil war in this country to in-
evitable antagonisms of ideas and pro-
clivities [generated by differences of
climate. He allows that, while such
antagonisms are not to be wholly eradi
cated, they may be reconciled on a basis
of frank recognition and mutual toler-
ance. He predicts the ultimate crop
ping out, in our mid-western re-
gions ^between the Mississippi valley
and the Pacific slope, of the picturesque
orientalism of Arabia, the poetry and
dreamy romance of Persia, and the re
ligious aspirations of Palestine. He
expects these results, and others not
less important, to be worked out by the
geographical law of human character.
Admitting that the modification of man
in America by climate and other physi-
cal influences would, in the strict
natural course of things, bs as great as
contemplated in the theory of Pro-
fessor Draper, he doss not suffi-
ciently consider the extent to
which the appliances of modern civili-
zation may neutralize climatic and geo-
graphical inequalities. The most po-
tent of such neutralizing agencies is
the railroad. It is manifestly the most
potent in changing conditions that
tend to fix and to petrify, so to speak,
isolated populations in provincial pre-
judice, lethargy and stolidity. The
railroad is destined to transform the
face of every Texas wilderness into
manifold aspects of beauty, genial-
ity and beneficence. Here in
southeastern |Texas we have a
region as large as some of the States in
other paits of the Union, and far more
fertile than most of them, awaiting such
a transformation. It will come. The
development of the railway system will
yet diffuse over this region a thrifty
population and all varieties of culture.
The same remark is applicable to
southern Texas in general. In the pro-
gress of industry and of civilization the
mist productive lands have not been
the first to be taken up. The
ruder forms of agriculture as well
as of pastoral husbandry have gone
first by preference to the poorer lands.
As population, labor and capital in-
crease, the surpassing fertility of the
lands bordering the southern coast of
Texas will more and more command
attention, enlist enterprise and undergo
The legal fraternity of St. Louis are
agitated over a novel point that was
raised in Judge Thayer's court last
week. In a case in which one of the
railroads was concerned, the jury ren
dsred a verdict contrary to the instruc-
tions of the court and were compelled to
reverse it. The plaintiff's attorney now
sues out a mandamus in the Court of
Appeals to compel Judge Thayer to
accept and record the first verdict.
The case appears to present at least two
new points, one being the action of the
judge in compelling the jury to reverse
their verdict, and the other the motion
to compel him by mandamus to receive
and record the verdict as first rendered,
The custom usual in such cases has been
to accept and record the verdict of the
j ary, then set it aside and order a new
trial. Great diversity of opinion ap
pears to prevail, some of the oldest
members of the bar holding that a writ
of mandamus can only lie where no
other remedy exists, and that it must
be dismissed because the relator has
choice of a writ of error or appeal
Other eminent lawyers hold that when
an officer of the law refuses to do his
duty the remedy is by mandamus, and
that it was thv duty of the judge to
have received the first verdict.
St. Louis and Chicago merchants
assert that, by dishonest arrangements
with the customs authorities, New York
dealers get goods passed at from five
to ten per cent. less than can be done
at other points in the country. The

ury has been called to the facts, and
now that the financial question has
been disposed of, for the time at least,
that functionary can easily find time to

It was stated by a member of the
American Institute of Architects, at a
meeting recently, that the loss of build-
ings by fire in the United States and
Canada, amounted annually to $100.-
000,000, to say nothing of the loss of
life, and that 78 per cent, of the loss
was due to imperfection of construction.
The loss, at this rate, in twenty fi\e
years, would be sufficient to render

The Honest Alcalde and the Wick-
ed Lip a ii Indians.
A noble Lipan Indian, who resided
in Mexico, near the border, os account
of his health, and in order to raise up
his children among genteel people, was
returning from a moonlight excursion
into Texas, driving before him several
horses he had taken from the rancho of
a Texan whom he had murdered, when,
on crossing the sacred stream that di-
vides the celestial land from that of the
outside barbaric Gringoe3 he met one of
the noblest works of God, an honest
man, in the shape of a Mexican Alcalde.

frown, " is an infernal outrage and a

I am simply carrying out the policy of
President Diaz, who directs that all
causes for local irritation on the border
be removed. The causes for irritation
are these Texas horses, and I am re-
moving them as fast as I can." And
the varlet winked suggestively at the
noblest work, who threatened to report
the matter to the nearest Mexican
officer, whose duty it was to arrest raid-
ers from Texas.
'He is the very hombre," retorted the
Indian middle-man, "who for every
head I bring has agreed to pay a dollar."
"A dollar didst thou say, heroic de-

Xbe Anglo-Texas Land Company.
The meeting recently held in London,
f jr the purpose of forming the Texa?
Land Company, of which a report is
given in correspondence published else-
where, was evidently of an important
character. It was attended by a num-
ber of English capitalists, and the fact
that upward of $150,000 was subscribed
on the spot showi that they mean busi-
ness. The design of the company, it is
learned, is to secure large areas of the
best lands in Texas, on such terms as
will enable the incorporators to resell
to settlers; to lay out town3, and build
and let or resell small tenant houses
upon forty, sixty and eighty acre farms;
and to advise and assist emigrants
as to best and cheapest mode of reach-
ing Texas, and exporting their products
to the best markets after they get here.
The lands purchased by the company
are to be sold to parties having a suit-
able working force upon a credit of
from three to five years. Money
enough to improve the land, build
houses, buy teams, etc , and enable the
purchasers to make a crop, will be ad-
vanced to them upon the farms at eight
per cent, interest. The mortgages in
cident to these transactions will be re-
cogmized as good security to the com
pany from the first, and as destined to
become better from year to year as the
settlers improve their homesteads. The
capitalists whose co-operation is espe-
cially sought in the formation of the
land company are those having sons
and relatives to provide for. It
is claimed that colonizing un-
der the auspices of a power-
ful combination of home relatives
will be attended by moral and social
advantages which will tend to make the
life of emigrants the more enjoyable in
the home of their adoption. The
movement is an auspicious one for
Texas. Carried to a successful con-
summation, it will direct hither a class
of settlers eminently desirable—fami-
lies from among the better order of
English society, who have brains and
muscle and energy, though not afflu
ent in money. W'hile there is room
enough and plenty for all within the
broad domain of the Lone Star State,
the sturdy and industrious yeoman is the
citizen most needed here to work in the
interest of the State's develop ment.

Col. Isidore McCormicb, formerly Gov.
Kellogg's chief of staff, and now" agent
of the Interior Department in the log
cases for the States of Alabama, Missis-
sippi and Louisiana, had arrived there
from Alabama, when he received a shot
from a rifls ball entering his cheek and
passing out near the ear. Another shot
lodged in a map of the country which
he was carrying in an inside pocket.
He fled and reached Brivillo station, on
the Mobile and Ohio Road.
The veto of a special session of court
at Scranton for hearing of the log cases

The colonel of a regiment of Vir-
ginia volunteers, that wished to give

Old North State, in granting the re-
quest, said: " Permission granted. Be
virtuous and you will be happy—but
you won't have much fun." The North
Carolina governor does not seem to
have extended the pleasing hospitali-
ties to his Virginia friend that marked
his conduct when exchanging cour
tesies with the governor of South Caro-
lina, and yet the Moffett bell punch has
not been introduced in the Carolines.
The Maine bank cashier who pre
ferred to die rather than reveal to three

lock, was as conscientious as he was
heroic. In the safe has been found a
life insurance policy on the life of Mr.
Barron for $5000, with a letter stating
that if any errors should be found in
the accounts of the bank after his
death, that sum, or so much of it as
might be needful, should be used in
making good the deficiency. He was
unwilling to have his memory tarnished
by any accusation, however trivial or
ill-founded, after he had closed the ac-
count current of his dealings on earth.
Monument makers will find in the re-
cord of this Maine cashier a subject
worthy of the purest marble.

How tbe Back of tbe Cuban Insur-
rection was Broken.
New Yobk, March 7 —The World
publishes a batch of letters between
New York Cuban leaders and their
commercial agent in London, which
letters it says were in some way com
municated to Spanish authorities and
disclosed, to the effect that in August
last a final desperate effort was to
have been made by the insurgents:
Cuban agents had collected $350,000,
and, as asserted, purctaied the steam
yacht Estelle, a steam tug at Pittsland,
and two fast steamers at Glasgow.
These two last steamers were seized by
the British government, on complaint
of the Spanish minister, February 15.
Their seizure has been kept private.
Col. McCarty, well known in connec-
tion with his arrest some time ago here

England and the Conference.
In the Lords the Duke of Argyle
called attention to the treaties of 1856
and 1871 and maintained that Turkey
was the only power which has broken
them. They were, therefore, practi-
cally at an end.
Lord Derby admitted that the state
of thing3 contemplated in those treaties
had ceased to exist. The treaties were,
therefore, only binding until Europe
ratifies a new system. He
would not enter minutely in'o
the question of England's attitude
at the conference, but as a general prin-
ciple England wished the question to
be settled in a.European, not in exclu-
sive Russian sense, and she wished the
settlement to be durable and equitable
toward the various races and creeds.

News was received here this morn-

Burleson county, that while he and
Henry Hodges were at supper at the
latter's house in Burleson county, just
across the river, some cowardly villian
fired through the window at Hodges,
the shot blistesing his breast and carry-
ing away part of his clothing and
beard, but doing no other damage.
Fifteen buckshot and one slug were
picked out of the wall. Hodges is the

Opening oi the Parliament—King
Humbert from tbe Throne.
Ro>re, March 7.—King Humbert
opened the Italian parliament. In his
speech from the throne he said: We
shall consolidate and render fruitful the
great work of Italian unity, to which
its glorious founder devoted his life.
The speech enumerates various bills
for electoral, financial and administra-
tive reforms, which will be submitted,
and continues: New treaties of com-
merce will provide fresh resources for
the treasury and avantages for trade.
The experience of rccent wars ren-
ders it necessary to place the army

peace for Europe. Our impartiality
will give greater value to our counsels,
and recent history will afford a con-

is our faith which, splendidly confirmed
by living facts, is preparing for us a

Tbe Address from t?;e Throne.
London, March 7.—The Manchester
Guardian's correspondent at Rome
says: The address from tbe throne, on
the opening of Parliament, Thursday,
after referring to the depression of
trade throughout Europe, will promise
electoral reforms and reduction of taxes
on corn and salt. The address will
al30 describe the diplomatic action taken
by Italy in order to insure durable
peace in the East. With regard to the
papacy, the address will be entirely re-
spectful, but will affirm more distinctly
than ever the unification of Italy, with
Rome as its capital. It will likewise
reply to the circular of the cardinals of
February 19 th, and to the attitude of
the Vatican circular of cardinals, which
referred to the renewal protest against
Discordant Parliamentary Groups.
London, March 7.—A Rome corre-
spondent of the Times telegraphs that
the ministers have failed to come to an
agreement with the various discordant
parliamentary groups. The govern-
ment is likely to be defeated on the
election of a president for the cham-
ber of deputies. The result will proba
bly be a dissolution of the chamber and
a new general election.
The King's Reference to the Pope*.
Rome, March 7.—In his speech from
the throne the king refers to tbe Holy
See as follows: "Pope Pius IX, after
;overning the church for 32 years, has
ascended to the tomb, regretted and
venerated. The rites of electing his
successor have been performed in per-
fect freedom without disturbing the
tranquillity,'of the State, peace of con-
sciences or the independence of the
ministers of religion. Maintaining an
institution and reconciling respect for
religion with a determined defense of
State, laws and principles of civiliza-

The Cabinet Crisis.
London, March 7.—The Pall jWall
Gazette's Rome correspondent says that
Signor Crispi's resignation probably
presages the cabinet's fall. King Hum-
bert will probably commission Signors
Caireli and Zanerdelli to form a minis-
try. A coalition government is impos-
sible, ns the Left refuses to compromise.
Rome, March 7.—At a cabinet coun-
cil yesterday, Signor Crispi resigned
the Ministry of the Interior. Signor
Depretis, President of the Council and
Minister of Foreign Affairs, will pro-
visionary administer the ^department.
Signor Crispi succeeded Baron Nicotera
in the Interior Department after the
last crisis, in the hope of reconciling
tbe Liberal party in the cabinet.
Appreciation of Government Securl
New Yobk, March 7.—The Tribune
says: The demand for government
bonds has been unusually great in tbe
past few days. The sales of a single
bank for the week aggregated three
and one-half millions, "mostly for in-
vestment. Fully a fourth of this has
been for the four per cents, of the de-
nominations of fifty dollars and one
hundred dollars. The daily gales of
bonds by one bank now average
million. It is stated that two city capi-
talists, who have been loaning money
on stocks at four per cent., have with-
drawn their capital, and yesterday in-
vested $500,000 in governments.

consul wilson's testimony.
Consul Wilson's testimony before the
Foreign Affairs Committee concerning
the Mexican border troubles has been
printed. It does not contain the charges
against Gen. Ord, Capts. McNelly and
Kells, and Gen. Potter, as understood,
and to which allusion has been made in
a former issue of the News.
The facts are these: He male the
charges against the gentlemen as al-
leged in the committee room of the
House Committee on Foreign Affairs,
but requested that they should not be
taken down at the time, and asked to
be allowed to consult his official tele-
grams at the State Department, so that, , . (
he could speak of the matter advisefHyr- -" °p<T,K-miss' this
The consul discovered that he had
raised a storm, and began to feel a little
shaky in his official brogans. It is said
he was urged by advisers to keep his
fingers out of that pie, and for once in
his life concluded to follow good coun-
sel. He is understood to claim consid-
erable merit for having crawfished.
bloody shirt revival.
The recent debate upon the Mexican
War Pension act has afforded an oppor-
tunity to partially revive the bitter me-
mories of the late civil strife—an op-
portunity which, I regret to say, has
not only been seized with avidity by
such unscrupulous partisans as Hale, of
Maine, and Garfield, of Ohio, but has
been reponded to with unnecessary fer-
vor by such would-be champions of the
South as Chalmers, of Mississippi.
Looking at the matter as a predeter-
mined line of party tactics, one can
scarcely expect otherwise from the Re-
publican leaders in their present
straitened circumstances, seeing that
all of their former victories have been
achieved under the folds of the bloody
shirt; bat certainly we had a right to
expect that Southern Democrats would
learn something by the experience of
the past and would no longer continue
to supply the enemy wilh ammunition
in the °hape of hot and hasty words in
dtfense of Southern honor and South-
ern chivalry. Sucu vindication will
doubtless read well in the newspapers
and gratify the constituents of'the
speaker while improving his chances of
a re election to $5000 a year, but they
surely do not tend to the pacification
of the country or the development of
its material resources, orthedownfall cf
sectional domination through the Re-
But, it may be asked, shall we sit
idly down and hear ourselves and our
people reviled and abused without of-
fering a word of defense? To this
there is a ready reply. The utterances
of a few party leaders do not truth-
fully represent the sentiments of a par-
tv. It is to build up a spirit of opposi-
tion among their followers that the
leaders seek to commit their op-
ponents to inconsiderate, passion-
ate and reckless utterauces. It
is here that the Hales, the
Fryes, the Garfields, the Congers,
are of supreme importance to the party
of their affiliation. They hover about
the opponent's flanks and skirmish in
front of its lines, armed -witli sharp-
pointed javelins, with which they stir
up the smouldering fires of enmity and
seek once more to revive the bitterness
of the past. If by such means they
shall succeed in arousing the fiery hos-
tility of an " ex-rebel brigadier" and
compel him to defend the "Lost
Cause" and its followers they are at
once rendered supremely happy, and
turning to their followers, they agitate
a certain gory garment, shouting in the
meantime: "See there! The war is not
ended yet! The rebels are still tinre
pentant! Treason must be made odious
if we have to go to war again! " And
all this because a few hot-heads of the
South can not consent to treat a few
blatherskites of the North with silent
contempt—the only weapon that pos-
sesses terror to them.
gen. sherman and congres3.
A short time ago Gen. Sherman re-
ferring to the proposed iaw requiring
officers of the army to wear their uni-
forms, whether on duty or not, in-
dulged in some pretty strong expres-
sions of displeasure, among other things
saying that officers might be expected
to wear their uniforms when in the so-
ciety of gentlemen, but they should
not be required to don them when en-
tering bar-rooms or associating with
congressmen. This was considered
rather rough at the time; but the aver-
age congressman, it would seem, has
rights which even "the general of the
army" is bound to respect. At least he
has a chance " to get even" when the
time for appropriations comes round,
or a new bill looking to the reorgani-
zation of the army is to be brought
forward. From more recent utterances
of Gen. Sherman, it would seem that
he has began to listen to reason, and
now speaks of congressmen in most re-
spectful terms. Whether the new Ban-
ning bill, by which it is proposed,
among other things, to reduce the pay
of the general of the army from $ 17,000
to $10,000 per year, has had anything
to do in modifying the views of this
particular official, can only be surmised
terview between himself and Mr.
Stephens in "July, 1865," the latter
gentleman exhibited no warmth of
feeling toward Jeff Davis, who was
then a prisoner, and sick at Fortress
Monroe. Mr. Stephens goes to the ex-
tent, in his denial of Gen. Taylor's as-
sertion, to characterize it as a " perfect
M mchausenism." The New York
World thinks that Mr. Stephens in assert-
ing that the interview referred to did
not occur in "July, 1865," should have
gone further and shown that it did not
occur at all. The World says that suck
an interview did occur, but in Octobtr
instead of July, and thinks that Mr.
Stephens should at once modify the
tone of his denial.
Hie Late Geo. W. Paschal.
The Corpus Christi Gazette, probably
deriving the facts from the son of the
deceased, gives some further notes on
the life of the late Judge Geo. W. Pas
He was a native of the State of Geor-
gia, and was reared in the county of
Oglethorpe. He was what the world
knows as a self-made man. One year
of his life only was passed within the
schoel-house, his education having
been obtained at home with his father
as a tutor, who was a man finely edu-
cated. At an early age, Judge Paschal
commenced the study of law under
Gov. Lumpkin, of Georgia, and was
admi.ted to the bar in 1833, being at
that, time twenty-one years of age.
Two years after he was elected to fill the
position in his district corresponding
to our present office of district attor-
ney. During the Indian troubles in
1831-5, at the time the Cherokees re
sisted the movement to force them be
yond the Mississippi, he became a vol--
unteer with the rank of lieutenant in
the Georgia volunteers under General
Wool. In 1836 he moved to Arkansas,
where he practiced his profession at
Van Buren, and in 1841 was elected
Supreme Judge of that State. He held
the office but one year and a half. Not
being content with the emoluments of
the office, he resigned before he had
attained the age of 30. In company
with his brother, I. A. Paschal, he vis-
ited this State in 1846, both of whom
settled here and established the law
firm of I. A. & G. W. Paschal, the for-
mer living in San Antonio. This part-
nership lasted until 1868, when the
death of his brother occurred. His
family moved to Galvestop in 1848. In
1851 Judge Paschal moved to Austin,
whence he changed his residence to
White labor is being freely empiojed

As is pretty generally known, there
is a camel rancho in Bastrop county,
which has been in existence some twen-
ty years, and furnished many menage-
ries with these ungainly beasts for ex
hibition. The Hempstead Messenger
of Thursday reports another shipment
of a carload of ten camels from Elgin,
railroad station 'his side of AustiD,
under charge of Mr. E. Lanf;r.r, who
is taking them to Janesville, Wiscon-
sin, where they are to be added to the
attractions of a traveling menagerie.
Tbe Messenger briefly repeats the his-
tory of camel-breeding in Texas.
These camels are the progeny of the
herd brought into Texas about twenty
years ago, with the expectation that
they would be used for transportation
on the staked plains and other desert
regions, about the time of the Mormon
rebellion. They were landed at Galves
ton, but the chances of employing them
profitably for army purposes failed, and
they were sold. They proved somewhat
like the elephant won in the raffle to
the first purchasers, but finally fell into
the hutids of M. D. Mather, of Elgin,
who now owns the whole herd, about
forty in number. Evsry year sales are
made of the increase, which is usually
about ten, to the various showmen of
the country. The price they bring is
from $250 to $500 each at from two to
five years of age. Mr. Lanfear says:
They are no more trouble to raise than
horses or cattle. The colts for the first three
or four days are rather tender and require
close attention, but after that take their
chances with the herd. They feed on cactus
and brush, eschewing all grasses that cattle
and horses eat, if the favorite cactus can be
had. tno females, with proper care, give a
colt every year, and the price at which they
are sold, the ease with which they are raised,
their extreme docility, and the adaptability
of our climate to their nature, would seem to
indicate that camel raising is a profitable
business in Texas. Mr. Lanfear says there is
one camel in the herd that has traveled 150
miles between sun and sun, and that most any
well-broke camel is good for more than one
hundred miles in a day.
The solid men of Boston are exer-
cised over the proposition to tax mort-
gages, and some of the largest capital-
ists, to escape assessments already au-
thorized, as well as those that are
threatened, have removed their domi
ciles to suburban places. The railroad
connections are such that business men
can reside thirty to fifty miles away
from their city offices with as little
inconvenience as if they were but as
many squares away. The question is
one of much importance, and it will
take a good deal of argument to con-
vince renters as well as owners of real
estate that they should be taxed to sup
port the city government because they
represent a certain description of pro
perty while owners of bonds and mort-
gages go untaxed because they repre
sent a different kind of property. The
question interests other places as well
as Bosl on.
INTELLIGENCE BY .71 AIL.
In consequence of the riotous pro-
ceedings attending the performances of Count
Johannes in Boston, the board of aldermen of
that city refused to license his exhibitions.
The British consul at New Orleans
De Fonbl&nque, is examining officially into
the origin and circumstances of the fire on
the ship Tornado, destroyed at the whaif at
New Orleans last week.
"An explosion, the origin of which
is to us unknown," is what a coroner's jury
has just said caused the disaster and loss of
life in the New York candy factory, on Bar-
clay street, some three months ago.
There is to be an extra session of the
Louisiana Legislature. The newspapers of
the State complain of the time that has been
frittered away in trifling legislation, but one
bill of any importance—the Pacific Railroad-
having up to this time been passed.
Grace Greenwood discloses tbe re-
markable fact that Sen. Butler has shown
much kindness to the wife and daughter of
Mumford, the New Orleans man whom he had
executed for pulling down the United States
fl g. Where's Burgess?
Capitalists of Boston and New York,
in connection with a number of Southerners,
are interesting themselves in the project of
a railroad from Port Royal, South Carolina,
which is one of the finest harbors on the At_
lantic, throvgh South Carolina, Georgia
Noithern Alabama, to Chattanooga, Tenn.,
where it will connect with roads leading to
all the principal cities in the South and West.
The executive of North Carolina
stands true to the famous characteristic.
When the Walker Light Guard of Richmond.
Va.. arrived in Wilmington last week, on
their return from a visit to Charleston, Gen.
Taylor, of the North Carolina State troops,
read the fallowing telegram which he had re.
ceived from Gov. Vance: " You will arrest Col.
Bradley T. Johnson and his command on their
attempt to pass through your city, and detain
them until the liquor gives out.'' The Vir-
ginia soldiers were then entertained in a
handsome manner, and the liquor which had
been provided for them was rapidly con-
sumed. That's what the Governor of North
Mr. S. S. Cox, when a year ago he
was writing to Mr. Hayes to secure an
office for one of his friends, did not ad-
dress Mr. Hayes, we believe, &3 a
"fraud." We advise him to appeal
from Cox one time to Cox another
Hon. George S. Boctwkll, of Mas-
sachusetts, will probably be appointed
first comptroller of the United States
treasury, to fill the vacancy caused
by the death of Mr. Taylor.
The New York Star says it. is report-
ed that Senator Lamar, of Mississippi,
will, at no dis ant day, take up his resi-
dence in th it city, and assures the seua
tor of a cordial welcome.
