II 1Kb Tide.
The tide of tli9 Gulf was unusually
high yesterday, the water surging as
high as the foot of Tremont street ill the
The draymen hired to water Tremont
street, and who, for the most part, are in
the sun, have adopted the plan of erect-
ing Binall sized umbrellas over their seats.
A number of watermelors were
shipped from this port to Key West yes-
terdny. These articles of diet are daily
coming into the market In large quanti-
United Male* Court.
Nothing was done in this court yester-
day, and the same will probably be the
case to day. Next week promises to be
one of interest, as the United States case
will be taken up.
The social event of Thursday evening
was a soiree dansante at the residence of
J. Mayrant Smith, Esq., in honor of Miss
Nellie Terry, lately returned from school
at Staunton, Virginia.

Are daily at work on the streets, but
for the most part on Market. The by-
laws of this street working party pro-
vide that no man shall lift a shovel of
dirt oftener than once in live minutes.
Occurred in the market last evening
between a one-legged negro and his fel-
low. The former pounced liia friend
over the cranium with a crutch, causing
the lluid to How for a time quite rapidly.
And How the Cbarm Was Broken.
The night was far spent. The wind
sighed mournfully through the scant
shrubbery. Scraps of jagged clouds shot
past the sad looking moon. The baying
of hungry dogs sounded ominously on
the evening air. The scene lay in a small
cabin ensconced in a gToup of sickly
oleanders, and blackened with the smoke
Voudouism ! That was the trouble. An
" old Virginy " negress lay prostrate on
the floor gazing at the roof of her hum-
ble abode. Her screams had gathered
about her a group of friends who vainly
aftked the cause of her Bufferings. When
words failed to solve the mystery, search
was instituted, for it was freely whisper-
ed among the assembly that somebody
had " hoodooed " the old negress. Un-
der a stone of the hearth was fonnd a
little red flannel bag, which contained
feathers, fish bones and a few wiltered
herbs. Some one had been there to prac-
tice his deviltry, and so far had suc-
ceeded. The victim still lay speechless,
but when shown the mysterious bag she
raised a shout of " snakes, snakes."
The story, as related by an eye-witness,
has it that the old negro would not rest
until relieved of the spell. She said
that her house was inflated with rep-
tiles, and would not be comforted until
they were secured. A quiet old man dis-
appeared for a few moments, and re-
turned in half an hour bearing two garter
snakes that had been slain that day by
his children. The house vas darkened,
and after searching the floors and beat-
ing about with a stick, the old man held
up two snakes before the eyes of the en-
chanted one. She rose up—tlie spell
was over. By her order a fire was made
and the charm and snakes burned to-
gether to a crisp. It was the only effec-
tual way, she said, to baffle the Iloodoo-
ist. This incident occurred at West End.
The maximum temperature yesterday
was 93 ° ; minimum 7'J ° . The wind re-
mained in tlie southeast all flay, and at-
tained a rate of twelve miles an hour at

Where the Weary Rest.
The unfinished hotel on Treqiont has
grown to be a favorite retreat, where the
homeless and weary nightly rest. Those
also who find home less attractive, assert
that the upper story is the coolest place
in the city to sleep.
Numerous canines saw the last of this
mundane sphere last night, as will ^ be
observed from the dead carcasses lying
in the street. Each peeler carried the
deadly lunch in his pocket, and tlie dogs
that partook thereof suddenly ceased to
The Latent Sensation
At East End was recorded on Thurs-
day last, when a donkey owned in that
vicinity is Baid to have crept into the
culinary department and drank up the
kerosene which Mistress Bridget left on
the stove preparatory to kindling the
" Denial, benllemcn."
Two members of the legal fraternity
grew fiery hot on a point of law in Jus-
tice Johnson's court Thursday afternoon
last, and but for the gentle admonition
from the court for them to desist and not
show contempt, a serious affray might
have been the result.

" Old Necessity."
The epithet of " Old Necessity" in the
country is sometimes applied to lawyers,
but Galveston has a street car which
bears that title. It is not because of the
fact that it knows neither tlie organic
nor constitutional law, but the law of
gravitation it fails to observe, and at
times bounces so high from the track as
to startle the passengers.
Look Out lor Yonr Postage.
A glance in at the I'ostoflice yesterday
disclosed the fact that there are quanti-
ties of newspapers and other periodicals
mailed every day with postage paid ac-
cording to the old rates. Many people
do not seem to be aware of the fact that
it takes more money than formerly to
mail a paper. For instance, it requires
two cents postage for an issue of the
Sews. There is a small mountain of
papers in the I'ostoflice now detained for
Rajland Home Benefit.
Messre. J. S. Sellers and W. H. Willis,
the managing committee for the trustees
of Bayland Orphan Home, have ar-
ranged an attractive programme for a
grand military entertainment, to be given
at Schmidt's Garden on Thursday next,
commencing at 2 r. M., in aid of the home.
The military of the city will be out in
full force, and several bands of music
will be on the grounds.
An elegant dinner, ice cream, lemonade,
wine punch, soda water, coffee, etc., etc.,
will be furnished, and served by the
ladies of the city, at moderate prices.
The accommodation for dancing in the
open air saloon has been doubled. Effi-
cient committees of citizens will be in

nounced before the day of entertainment,

Eds. News—It seems the invariable
custom with some of the j>oorer classes
of our colored brethren on East Winnie
street, between Sixth and Seventh, to
gather swill from their several sources
and dump the Bame in their back yards,
having no regard for the comfort of those
living opposite. We are compelled to
close windows and doore, thus shutting
out all enjoyment of the southerly winds,
so essential to comfort, because of the
frequency of revolting odors.
Now, I believe this is generally con-
sidered outside the city limits, but is
there no remedy for this outrage upon
all decency ? It is not the object of the
writer to deprive theBe poor people of
this method of gathering food for their
swine, but accumulation which renders
living with comfort such a miserable
apology, should not be tolerated. s.
Complaints similar to the above have
been made from time to time of the want
of sanitary precaution in the region re-

make a note of the facts stated, and, as
the power has been given to him to abate
all such nuisances, the evil in that lo
cality will be treated in the same man
ner as others of a like nature elsewhere.
That Attorney's Pee.
Considerable comment is at present go-
ing on among attorneys, constables and
others regarding the matter of tlie attor-
ney's fee which is charged on the defend-
ant's bill of costs in justice's courts.
Several instances have occurred lately
where counsel for the defendants have
protested and refused to pay the same,
declaring that the law did not allow it,
They assert that the law applies only to
the District Court. Others maintain that
so long as such cases are legally permit-
ted to be tried in justice's courts, why is
not the fee due'!
Here is the article from the statute
headed " To District Attorneys : "
Article 3812—For every conviction in
cases of felony, $20.
For every conviction under the laws
against gaming, $15.
For every conviction for any otiier of.
fense against the laws of this State, $10;

Probably a Fatal Accident.
For tw<%.days past rumors have been
abroad to the effect that Mr. Sulplce, an
optician, who for a long time occupied a
ihop on PoBtoffice, near Tremont street,
had met with an accident while driving
down the island. The latest account is
that he was thrown from his vehjele, in
which he carried a plow, and killed. His
wife was notified yesterday, and pro-
ceeded immediately down the island.
It appears that Mr. Sulpice was prepar-
ing to farm on a place some twenty miles
down the island, and was, at the time of
the supposed fatal accident, conveying a
plow to his new home. The facts in the
case will be learned as Boon as Mrs. Sul-
pice returns, and in the meantime the
rumors are given as they are heard from
various persons on the streets.

The Pavements.—It is understood
the City Council will soon act on the bids
for the proposed new pavements, and
that the contractors, whoever they may

brief space of time. The intention is to

tial pavements before another winter.
Progressing.—Last night the track of
the Texas Western, or Narrow Gauge,
had been laid three and a half miles, and
tracking is progressing at the rate of
half a mile a day. Ten miles, it is ex-
pected, will be laid by the end of the
month. The track is a most beautiful
and even one, the trucks running smooth
ly over the " fishbars."
Fire.—A fire originated in the resi-
dence of Mrs. E. J. Grarger, corner of
Texas avenue and Fannin street, yester-
day afternoon. Protection Fire Compa-
ny's engine-house was next door; the en-
gine was quickly brought to bear and the
fire extinguished. Had not the engine

fanticide 1, highway robbery 1.
Inspection of Hides.—A case was
before Justice McGowan yesterday in-
volving the constitutionality of the hide
and cattle law, in bo far as it authorizes
the inspection of hides. The case was
that of the State vs. Mr. August Blau,
arrested Thursday for an alleged refusal
to haye his hides inspected. The ablest
lawyers of the city were employed on
both sides, and the denouement of the
matter was regarded with much interest
among cattle men. It seems to have been
a new phase of the hide inspection busi-
ness, declared unconstitutional last year
by one of the ablest jurists of this State.
Reformed Episcopal CnuRCii.—Yes-
terday allusion was made to the building
of the edifice of the Reformed Episco-
pal Church in the Fifth Ward. Rev. H.
H. Brookes, the founder of the church
in Houston, came here some four months
ago and began his mission by preaching
a sermon in Shearn Chapel. He subse-
quently began preaching in the Fifth
Ward, where he had large congregations,
and babtised seven persons. A church
wa3 organized, and now numbers some
seventeen members. Shortly after set
tling in Fifth Ward, Mr. Brookes had his
house robbed and ransacked, and every
article of clothing taken except an old
pair of pants. Nothing daunted, how-
ever, he got through various dif-
ficulties. He now preaches to a regular
congregation at 11 o'clock a. m. and 8 r.
m. Sundays ; has a Band of Hope in the
Ward numbering forty children, and a
promising Sunday school of twenty-five
pupils. More than one-half the amount
subscribed to the building of the new
church edifice has been paid in. In
building up the new church in the Fifth
Ward Mr. Brookes, who acts under the
jurisdiction of Rev. Dr. Cheney, Bishop of
the West, says he is working in his own
field and one previously unoccupied.

The Sam Houston Jlonnment.
The object of the Houston Land Associi
ation, as set forth in its advertisement, is
to give a military ball and concert at the
Opera House on the 21st of September,
the entire profits of which are to be con-
tributed toward the erection of a monu-
ment to the great man who did so much
toward shaping the destinies of Texas.
The project has been under discussion
for some time past, and finally some of
the most prominent men in Houston de-
cided upon the above plan, with the
additional features of a distribution of
valuable gifts, including over $40,000 in
cash, and nearly $150,000 in lands and
Captain Nat. P. Turner has been in-
trusted with the management of the
affair, and those who know him best are
unreserved in their expression of confi-
dence in his integrity. He has a long
list of friends who, in consideration of
his connection with the enterprise, will
work earnestly in behalf of the laudable
object for which it was conceived. The
following list of officers of the Houston
Monumental Association gives further
evidence that the drawing will be a just
and fair one: Colonel Ashbel Smith,

Will be confided the responsibility of ap-
pointing a committee to supervise the
drawing and distribution of prizes, full
particulars of which and of other details
will be found in the advertisement be-
fore mentioned. In proportion to the
cost of tickets the number and value of
the prizes is unusually large, and an op-
portunity is now offered to all admirers
of the old hero to add their quota toward
raising a fitting monument to his mem-
ory, and, at the same time, of partici-
pating in the munificent benefits offered
by the Land Association.
No doubt many would prefer to see
the tribute to Gen. Sam Houston come in
a more direct form; but the time having
passed for depending solely on volun-
tary contributions, and the Legislature
having failed to act in the matter, those
who had resolved to accomplish the de
sired result by the above means finally
decided to adopt the plan described, and
it is to be hoped that it will prove a bril-
The National Grange and the Texas
TnE ENTERPRISE INDORSED by IION. WM.
W. LANG, MASTER TEXAS STATE
Marlin, Texas, June 0,1875
Eds. News—As the State of Texas is
very largely interested in the completion
of the Texas Pacific Railroad, and as the
action of the National Grange has been
assailed by many, would it not be well
to reproduce this letter in your paper,
that the influence of that body may not
be weakened in the estimation of the
public 1 In our State this railrotid is a
great desideratum. Yours truly,
Wm. W. Lang.
[From the Guenoc Kural Register.]
The following letter is from Worthy
Master Hamilton. It has been called out
by the paragraph which appeared in the
Rural two or three weeks since in rela-
tion to a call for information in regard to
the action of the National Grange with
regard to the Texas Pacific Railroad. The
letter will speak for itself:
Guenoc, April 19,1875.
Editors Rural Press—The action of
the National Grange at Charleston, in
recommending government aid to the
Texas Pacific Railroad, has given rise to
much comment and unjust criticism.
Patrons appear to have taken, it for
granted that the influence of the Na-
tional Grange was used to induce Con-
gress to donate large amounts of money
and lands to aid in the construction of
what is said to be " a monopoly seeking
to control the whole carrying trade of
the South, and by certain combinations
to extort millions of dollars unjustly
from the producers of our country."
Such, let me say, Messrs. Editors, was
not the case.
The friends of the Texas Pacific, when
they came before the National Grange,
never asked for anything which might
prove injurious—they merely asked the
indorsement of ihe agriculturists of our
country to a bill then before Congress,
which was intended and well calculated
to develop the resources of millions of
fertile acres of our territory, open up
beautiful homes for thousands of our
fellow-citizens, check the monopoly
already existing in the carrying trade
across this continent, between Asia and
the cities and seaboard on our Atlantic
coast, add to the national population, the
national industry and the national
wealth, increase the taxable resources
of the country, add to its reve-
nues and lessen the public debt.
They urged it was a public duty to util-
ize the enormous national capital that
now lies idle in that vast Southern re-
gion between Texas and the Pacific
coast. They pointed to that vast national
domain, capable of producing untold
quantities of corn, wheat, wine, cotton,
wool and stock; and which, from its
want of accessibility and distance from
market, could not bo profitably brought
under cultivation. This wealth, with the
rich mines of gold, silver, lead, coppar
and coal in Southern Colorado, New
Mexico, Arizona, Southern Utah, Nevada
and Southern California, was shown to
be unavailable to the nation by reason of
distance from mercantile centers and
coat of transportation.
JuBtice to the Southern States de-
manded that they should have the same
rights and facilities to develop their ma-
terial wealth and increase their produc-
tions as had been extended to the Middle
and Northern States. Their products,
cotton, tobacco, rice and sugar, are of
great value to the nation, and the North-
ern and Middle States have a direct in-
terest in everything which haa a tend-
ency to stimulate the growth of agricul-
tural products in the South.
Our military commanders, Generals
Grant, Sherman, Sheridan, Haneock,
Meigga and Ingalls, have all testified that
the extension of the railroad from our
southwestern frontier to the Pacific coast
is a military necessity, and that it would
substantially end our Indian troubles by
the facilities it would give the military
to control these wild and savage people.
The bill indorsed by the National
Gsange, and which it recommended to
the speedy action of Congress, does not
ask for one acre of the public domain be-
yond what may be needed for roftd-way
and stations, nor one dollar as a gift from
the public treasury, nor any bonds the
principal or interest of which tlie gov-
ernment was expected to pay—none of
these were asked for—but simply that
the government would guarantee an in-
terest of Bix per cent, upon the bonds of
the road, to the extent of $30,000 per
mile, agreed that every guard and re-
striction necessary to prevent extortion
or unjuBt discrimination or fraud of any

holders, should be placed by Congress in
The security offered against loss on
this guarantee is vast and comprehen-
sive. First, the road surrenders every
acre of the valuable lands hitherto ob-
tained. Second, it giveB the whole of
its earnings for transportation for the
government. Third, it gives ten per
cent, of the entire 'gross receipts of the
road. Fourth, in default of payment the
road itself becomes forfeit. Was better
security ever exacted by capitalist 1
The propriety and security of this
great work was so apparent to the mem-
bers of the National Grange that the
vote in regard to it was almost a unit.
The masters from Iowa, Illinois, Missouri
and other States, where Patrons have
been contending so earnestly against rail-
road monopolies, were so well satisfied of
the benefits and advantages to be derived
from opening another great thoroughfare
across our country from Atlantic to Pa-
cific shore, and that all necessary guards
and restrictions toprerent imposition and
fraud would be thrown around it, gave
it their hearty support, and not one them
had an idea their action was in the least
degree a departure from the principles
which should control the action of
Grangers, or a violation of the objects
and purposes of the Patrons of Hus-
bandry as fully set forth and given ta
the world in our platform of principles.

" Celebrated American
SYMPTOMS OF WORMS.
THE countenance is pale and
leaden-colored, with occasional
flushes, or a circumscribed spot on
one or both cheeks ; the eyes become
dull; the pupils dilate; an azure
semicircle runs along the lower eye-
lid ; the nose is irritated, swells, and
sometimes bleeds ; a swelling of the
upper lip ; occasional headache, with
humming or throbbing of the ears ;
an unusual secretion of saliva ; slimy
or furred tongue ; breath very foul,
particularly in the morning ; appetite
variable, sometimes voracious, with a
gnawing sensation of the stomach, at
others, entirely gone ; fleeting pains
in the stomach; occasional nausea
and vomiting; violent pains through-
out the abdomen; bowels irregular,
at times costive; stools slimy, not
unfrequently tinged with blood; belly
swollen and hard ; urine turbid ; re-
spiration occasionally difficult, and
accompanied by hiccough; cough
sometimes dry and convulsive; un-
easy and disturbed sleep, with grind-
ing of the teeth ; temper variable,
