A beautiful sight interrupts us in our wearisome task of overlooking
the exchange list, wherein we daily plunge, to seek, like the pearl divers
of the Eastern seas, for soirfe rare gem with which to regale the eyes of
The s'ight we allude to is, the procession of the scholais of the Sis-
ters of charity, who are now bending their steps to the neighboring
church, this being a day of great solemnity with the Catholic, (Thursday
55:) The rain is falling, but the orphans are enveloped in dark comfor-
table looking cloaks, and the humble sisters are in advance, figuring to
our mind the moral position which they hold over their young and hap-
less charge, leading them to the shrine of virtue and of God.
The Children appear to be about thirty or forty in number, and yet
:all these are supported and tended by these charitable women. May
ihoir reward be great in that hour when creeds shall bo blended in one
universal prayer for mercy, and opinions find one centre and one stream,
in the 'trembling fear of omnipotent justice. The hand of Goldsmith
once penned a sentiment which we now address to our readers : He
;said, in speaking of the diversity of creed's, "I will not quarrel with my
-hrother because he asks a favor of my father, in a different manner from
myself." "Wash. 3Ietropo.
Caexuee-of Suwe Ships. From December, 1834, to July, 1836,
(eighteen months,) a single British cruizer (the Brigantine Buzzard,
lieut. Campbell) captured ten slave vessels, containing 3,460 Africans".
T-ho whole were under Spanish colors with the exception of two. The
-amount of prize-money is so considerable as to afford the sum of 5007. to
tto the common seamon belonging to the brigantine.
THE subscriber having a large interest in the TOWN OF RICHMOND,
and the adjoining lands, as will be seen by the diogr.'.phical sketch an-
nexed to the plan of said town, and desirous of advnncmg the improvement of
this important point, proposes to dispose of in and out lots on the most favora-
To such as will improve by erecting building, town lots will be given
gratis. Such persons as may procure lots by purchase or otherwise, can have
the privilege of cutting timber on four hundred acres of woodland, for building
The eligibility of the place for a town will not be disputed when Its rela-
tive situation to other important points is known. Always accessible to steam
boats of light draught, navigation is thus secured to the mouth of the Brazos.
The distance, only 30 miles, from Houston which city, having a direct and
safe steamboat navigation to the port of Gaheston, nature has designed as the
New York of Texas will make Richmond the point through which the gf eat
road to the west will always pass, and where the business of a very rich an
fertile country will centre.
Theincrease of populution7on the Brazos ha3 already suggested the forma-
tion of a new county to be called "Fort Bend," for which object congress has
been petitioned, and the county seat will of necessity be established at Rich-
mond. The subscriber, whose-interest in the town and out lots of Richmond con-
sists of 1700 acres, is willing to divide it into 100 shares, which he will also sell
on reasonable terms.
Persons wishing to avail themselves of good bargains in shares or lots, with
the sure increase of property, would find it to their advautuge to examine,and
conviuce themselves of the truth of the foregoing s atemeuts.

THIS periodical will be adapted to the wants of a new country : its main
objects will be the promotion of religion-, virtue and morality, and the
x diffusion of learning. ,

their suffering. The interesting incidents of the revolution, and those daring
achievements which have characterized the present contest, will be care-
fully collected and preserved for the columns of our journal.
A brief history of those who have distinguished themselves on the field of
battle, or in the halls of legislation, will be incorporated with other subjects in
the successive numbers of our paper. The noble spirits of the Alamo, the mar-
tyrs of La Bahia, ann the heroes of San Jacinto, will not be forgotten. Their
names will b'e handed down, their bravery for the pattern, and their memory
for the veneration of posterity.
The annual messages of the president will be placed on our pages, with oth-
er public documents whose preservation in such a form may be important.
The paper will be issued in convenient form; and efforts will be made to
render it worthj' of careful preservation : that it may be a publication to which
general referrence shall be made hereafter, for correct information on import-
ant facts in our history.
Interesting items of intelligence will be communicated, and also the most
important general laws and judicial decisions of the supreme court.

fied that the said island will be thus partitioned off in tiers, with suitable and
convenient avenues for ingress and egres3, leading across from the Bay to the
Gulf shore, and sold accordingly. The terms of sale will be one fourth cash,
and the balance in equal mstajnients payable in three, six and nine months,
with lien until final payment. The government will guarantee the purchaer
by patent. It is known that variousindividuals under specious pretexts pre-
tend to ho.d claims to this Island; the government, however, are satisfied that
all such claims are fictitious, and only calculated for speculation, and that the
right of the property is proporly in the government. Apian of the surveys will
be exhibited in Banks' Arcade, city of New Orleans, assoon as the work can bo,
completed. The locality of this Island for commercial advantages is too well
known to the public to need description; besides its very great and well known
advantages for health as a summer residence. It is confidently hoped that an
enlightened public will avail themselves of the advantages here offered.

SITUATED in the county of Washington, sixty miles northwest of the city
of Houston, thirty five miles east of the town of Washington, and six miles
west of the Sau Jacinto River, in the centre of a high, beautiful and undulating
district of country, distinguished for health, good water, and soil.
It is expected that a new county will be organized, at the next session of
congress, embracing this section of country, in which event, the town of Mont-
gomery from its central position, must be selected as the seat of justice.
The San Jacinto aifords an excellent keel boat navigation to this point.
The most direct route from the city of Houston to Robertson's colony and Red
River settlements, and from Bevils settlement to Washington, pass through this
town. The great extent of good land lying contiguous, and its increasing and
enterprising agricultural population, cannot fail of making this one of the most
flourishing inland towns in this republic.
Sales of lots at auction will take place in the town of Montgomery, on tho
first Monday in September ensuing, and continue for three days."
Terms of sale, six, and twelve months credit. Notes with approved security
will be required. Good titles will be made upon the payment of the first notes.

San Jacinto river, and even tip to the levee ofthe projected city, widens to a con-
