TOWN OF RESTOJST.
THE attention of the Public is called to this town,
about to be laid off at the head of Bay Piuirie, on
the land of the undersigned-.
With a considerable population immediately ann:iiJr'
and located in the centre of the lichest body of land in
Texas perhaps :n the known world, it possesses the fiVt
requisite of a town a surrounding country of such na-
ture as to require a mart and ensure its support.
It i3 upoh the direct road from 'Matagorda to Bastrop,
(about forty milds from the former place,) and is the near-
est route to Houston, going by the Bernard and crossing
the Bn are at Little's. It is within four miles and a half
of the Colorado, the overflow of which will not permit a
nearer sitO) and within two and a half of Caney. Tho
ground is high and perfect'y dry the water as good as
the republi-: affords, and the st'.untion, in every respect,
the most eligible w'lhin many miles.
A petition will, at the next session of Congress, be
made by the entire nurttem half of Matagorda comity,
for a defining ot anew county; should it succeed, (and
they have more than the .number of "free male inhabi-
tants" required by tbe constitution for that purpose) this
town being central andcombininjr more advantages than
any other spot in that region, will, undoubtedly, be tha
county seat; and it is almost unnecessary to-add, that thb
three quarters ot the agricultural population of Matagor-
da county residing thereabout, willr under any circum-
stances, sooner trade in Preston than ride forty miles or
more for that purpose.
Arrangements are making fbr the manufacture ofbricfcs
in the neighborhood, and about twenty houses' will be coio-
menccd a sooa as- the- town is lard off".
Tb. merchants-and business- men of every description
the opportunity offered is a profitable one. and the proprie-
tors will afibtd every accommodation to tboss who wish
to build in the place.
