▲ horse Attached to a dray loaded with bar
rels. and driven by an old colored man, took a
notion to try his heel?, last evening on Market
street, and after a most satisfactory effort
was brought to a stand-still at the corner of
Church and Thirty-first streets. The old
darky stayed with him until he stopped, but,
unfortunately for him, the halt was effected
by a collision with a fence-corner, which cap-
sized the dray and landed him underneath
the wreck. Help came from all quarters of
the compass, and when the old man was re-
leased he had only one pain to complain of—a
sort of a rheumatic touch in the hip.
The State a^d County Assessor of taxes has
received hi^ blanks and instructions from the
Comptroller at Austin to make out assess-
ment for all lands and lots in the Menard
J?ran% and which are designated on the city
map, on which taxes have not been paid dur-
ing any of the intervening years since 1870.
Tax receipts covering this period are invalu
»ble, for should the rolls show a single lot
which has escaped its tribute of taxes during
-any of the years mentioned, nothing can pre-
sent a second payment of such taxes except
the presentation of the tax receipt for that
year. There are lands amounting in value to
millions of dollars on the delinquent rolls,
and persons interested in the payment of
taxes can save both money and trouble by
seeing that the records are clear against
•A- Canine Filicides.
A dog of the bul» species, belonging to Mas-
ter Henry Thomas, corner Avenue M and
E gh eenth street, committed suicide in a
very stra/ ge and extraord.nary manner. For
several days he has been acting like most hu-
man beings are supposed to act who contem-
plate hurling themselves into eternity. The
dog wandered about the house and yard in a
seemingly unconsolabie and melancholy man-
uer, and all efforts of his young master to get
him to act as was his wont, proved futile.
Finally, between 6 and 7 o'clock Tuesday even-
ing. he entered a two-story stable in the yard,
managed to get to the upper floor, there pave
a few farewell howls, and sprang out of a
convenient widow toward an adjoining feoce,
where he managed to get his neck caught be-
tween two pickets, and where he departed
this life without a struggle.
Return of the Adella*
The yacht Adella, owned by C. Walbart and
Jos Walthew, arrived yesterday from New
Orleans after having run two races at Bay
St. Louis against the famous yacht Maggie,
from New York, owned by the Brewsters, of
New Orleans. This boat has beaten all the
boats of her class in the South, and was con
sidered one of the fastest in New York. The
Adelia won the first race on Friday last, the
*•11 st inst., by 13 minutes and 51 seconds, but
wa- beaten on Saturday through the misman-
agement of her crew. The owners of the
Maggie were not anxious to run a third race,
tliey being fully satisfied that the Adelia is
more than her match. This success proves
that the Adelia is one of the fastest boats of
her class in the South, and her record is one
of which the aquatic sportsmen of Galveston
may feel justly proud.
This court met at the usual hour yesterday.

Press and Manufacturing Company.
Now comes defendant in said cause, and
for answer say6 that if plaintiffs purchased
cotton from the owners while stored with de-
fendant, which they do not admit-, they pur-
chased said cotton with full notice of defend-
ant's tariff of charges, and particularly that
charge complained of, and defendant denies
that said charges were exacted without any
service, care or labor rendered in respect of
said cotton, and say that defendant was put
to great expense of time, labor and money in
preparing eaid cotton for delivery in deliver-
ing the same to plaintiffs, which plaintiffs
well knew had to be expended on said cotton
by defendant when plaintiffs purchased the
same from the owners thereof; and defend-
ant sayatkat said charges were and are rea-
sonable and just and customary in the city of
Galveston. Defendant denies that it Was le-
gally bound to make the delivery mentioned
in pTaintiffs' petition under their instrugUenS
wKfeout making any charge therefor, and say
that if plaintiffs ever purchased any cotton
while the same was stored with defendant,
they made said purchase with fall notice, ana
well understanding tb^jj was in posses-
sion of defenfj^j^ and t^at the
charges complai^^ of would have to be paid

instructions of plaintiffs in re-

Bj18 ^ner described in p'aintiffs' petition before
-aeir said instructions would be complied
with, they well knowing defendant's business
and its right to retain said cotton for the
charge against the same.
Defendant denies that plaintiffs were com-
pelled to purchase cotton which had been
stored by the original owners thereof with
defendant, and say that if they ever pur-
chased any such cotton they purchased the
same for gain and speculation, after having
first calculated the charges complained of,
and that said purchases were made by them
voluntarily without being compelled by de-
fendant or any other person or corporation to
embark in said business. Defendant, further
aoswering, says that if plaintiffs paid to de
fendant the sums of money mentioned, said
sums were pafd to defendant for value re-
ceived as aforesaid and without any com-
plaint that said charges were unjust, and de-
nies that said payments were made under
protests, but, on the contrary, that payments
were made willingly and Voluntarily by plain-
tiffs without objecting thereto, well knowing
that they undertook and promised to pay the
same when they made the purchase from the
original ownets of said cotton, believing and
knowing that said charges were reasonable

denies all and singular the allegations in

The Texas correspondent of the Chicago
Times, writing from San Antonio last week,
pays the following handsome compliment to
a young lady who was raised in Galveston,
where she has many friends and admirers:
44 The sultry morning sun aroused us alJ, and,
immediately after a hearty camp breakfast,
we proceeded along the bed of the Cibola,
which revealed some vistas of great love-
liness, to the rancho of Col. Sellers, where we
saw a lily of the valley growing in the midst
of frontier surroundings, in the person of
Miss Sellers—one of the handsomest and most
accomplished of the fair daughters of Texas.
She did the honors of her home with true
southern hospitality, her father and mother
being absent. Our chief est treat was a sup-
ply of ripe figs, which have a most delicious
flavor. They grow in this climate luscious as
in Palestine, and a scripture patriarch might
not disdain to sit beneath a Texas fig tree
and recall the dews of heaven that fed the
wandering tribes of Israel on Etham's bar-
Have It Repaired.
A part of the railing along the south side of
the Broadway esplanade between Twenty-
second and Tremont streets was blown down
by last week's storm, and the pieces still lie
scattered along the street. Home of the
shrubbery was also damaged. Will the proper
official make a note of it and see that the re-
pairs are made ? _

Some time ago the cotton speculators in
several of the thoroughbred cities of the
South who fancy that they can never be hap-
py nntil they have monopolized the Texas
trade, and who are not possessed of that chiv-
alric sort of enterprise that would bring them
to this State and develop them into success-
ful factors and brokers in the cotton business
got together and concluded to send their
drummers all over Texas, with authority to
buy up directly from the farmers every lock
of cotton produced by the great common
wealth which is represented in the galaxy of
States by a lonesome looking star. These
wide awake merchants skirmished around and
found any number of "live men " who could
talk Spanish, ride a bucking horse, and take
a scalp as scientifically as a Comanche, whom

THE LATE It. V. COOK.
Meeting of tbe Columbna Bar—
Resolution! of ueapect.
At a meeting of members of the bar
of Columbus, Texas, W. J. Darden,
Esq , (being the oldest attorney of this
bar,) was called to the chair, aDd Fri-
ench Simpson elected secretary. Where-
.upon the following resolutions were
Besotted, That the sudden and unexpected
death of our Brother tR. V. Cook, which oc-
curred at his heme, in Columbus, on the 30th
day of August last, forcibly reminds us that
we too must pass away, and calls forth our
sympathies for the family of one whom our
private and professional associations for
years have left only the kindest remem-
brances. We can but express our unfeigned
regret for our sudden loss and bow to the
Dispenser of the destinies of all.
Jtesolred, That by the death of our Brother,
the State has lost a just and valuable citizen,
the bar an honorable, able and courteous
advocate, and we a loved and trusted com-
panion and friend.
Resolved, In all the events of life our Brother
acted his part well as a citizen, lawyer, Chris
tian and gentleman. We commend his ex
ample to the memory of our profession, and
when death overtakes us we hope that our
preparations may be as complete as his, and
that it may be said of us as it is of him. he
died a good lawyer and honorable man, a kind
and devoted husband, a loving and affection
Besolved, That we tender our warmest sym
pathies to the family of our deceased Brother,
and we condole with them in their greatafflic-
Resolced, That the Secretary furnish to the
District Court, now In session, a copy of these
resolutions, with a refj'test that they be spread
on the records, and that a like copy be fur-
nished to the family of our deceased brother,
and that they be published in the Colorado

prize has swept over your heart like a
sirocco of agony, and left it dry aDd

Jennie June says that money is not
so often the reason why young women
marry elderly men as people imagine
She says that the young man of to day
is not the desirable husband that the
young man of fifty years ago was; he
is not so thoughtful, sober, painstaking,
and conscientious; he lives at a club,
has no love of home life nor desire to
build up character and reputation as
man and citizen; his ideas of life are
bounded by the theatre and the doings
of his little set; and in too many cases
his ambition is to own a racer and be on
intimate terms with the ballet. Natu

their daughters to such youths as
these, even if they have the opportuni-
ty, and are better pleased to bestow
them on older men—men who know

Lucy Hooper says that what Patti
feels most keenly is the altered attitude
of her fellow artistes toward her. Her
genius and her social station had com
bined to make her a sort of queen
amongst them, and when she came into
the green room or upon the stage at re
hearsal everybody would respectfully
make way for her, and salute her as she
passed. Now they stand their ground
glancing at her askance, with signifi
cant smiles and whispers. She is no
longer their goddess, their sovereign
lady; she is one of them only, and an
unloved comrade at that. For, strange
to say, notwithstanding her immense,
her unprecedented success, an artistic
standing that need fear no rival, she
was pitilessly jealous of all possible
rivals, and quarrelsome and exacting
with the male singers who supported

There is no doubt about this being a good

The late rains have greatly revived vegeta
tion of all kinds, and caused the grass upon
the prairies to put forth rapidly — A large

lumber and merchandise for the west, are

It will be remembered that on the 25th of last
June, James Mastin, sheriff of this county,
was shot and instantly killed by one Bone
Wilson, alias Napoleon Wilson, while attempt-
ing to arrest said Wilson, about three and a
half miles from Stephenville, upon a charge
of horse-stealing. Wilson then made his
escape. About the first of this month a party
of t*n men, belonging to Major Jones's bat-
t ilion, and Capt. Sparks's company, under
command of Sergeant Sparks, found the
murderer about twenty miles from Fort Chad-
bourne, and ordered Wilson to halt and hold
up nis hands. He immediately halted, reined
his horse around, seized his gun and attempt-
ed to draw it from its scabbard. He was
again ordered to hold up his hands, but
still attempting to draw his gun, his
horse was shot down and he himself
wounded in the body. His horse fell, he fall
ing at the; same time on the opposite side of
his horse from the Rangers, at once leveled
his gun over his horse at the troops, but as
his horse was only wounded he staggered and
rose, and Wilson thereby missed his aim. He
then ran about ten steps, took position behind
a horse, and took aim at the troops, but was
instantly shot through the right breast by the
Rangers, when he ran about five steps and
fell dead with his gun cocked in his hand.

Marlin Ball: The depot wharves are crowd
ed with goods and merchandise. Cotton is
coming in and trade is brightening. Cotton
is being bought in Marlin directly for the cot-
ton mills in the North and in Europe.. Every-
body is picking cotton. There will be more
cotton raised iu this county than at first anti-
cipated after the worms struck the crop. The
entire cotton crop of the county is hardly ever
fully gathered any way, and higher prices and
a better gathered crop will make up the defi-
ciency destroyed by worms The fetorm

tendency to make a fellow hunt for blankets.
... About fifteen business men have been ar-

through the agency of Col. H. B. Andrews
and Major L. E. Edwards. The purchasers
represent the best classes of men in New

as consumers, but as producers, and bring
with them sufficient capital to purchase every-
thing they need. The tract of land purchased
by the colonists is beautifully situated on the

Dr. Neal, of this place, happened the misfor

ference, the tops beiDg a bed of gypsum, per-
fectly white, and in many places made smooth

of them and use water from a gypsum or

on us to be similar to croton oil. We found
two caves neat* the head of this creek, and ex-
