PROPERTY FOR SALE-CKy of Chambersia This point so

of the Trinity River, has long been looked to with much interest,

now arrrited when it has only to' be put in market to eecure its rap-
id and prosperous growth. Although this City was projected some-
time since,! the proprietor, Gen. T. J. Chambers, was unwilling to

has to bo viewed by the most sceptical to convince them that
Chambersia must soon become a desirable summer retreat forfam-

The port of Anahuac, (now the city of Chambersia,) has been
highly spoken of as a place destined to become a great commercial
city by most oftbe writers upon the history and geography of Tex-
as ; prior to the revolution it was selected'by the celebrated Mex-
can engineer, Teran, as the most important commeicial point on
tha Gulf" of Mexico, and a custom house and fortification on an ex-
tensive plan were in progress of being built'when the war broke

kui navigation on tne Day ana at tne raoutli ot tne m03t navigable
with settlements already made for several hundred miles on its
banks and tributaries, and navigable for eight or nine hundred miles

the bars could be passed from the River into the bay, the kind of
boats best adapted to the navigation of the river are unfit for that of
tne Day, ana can never saiety passu wiih cargoes of cotton: all
must be inevitably led to the conviction that it must be the place ol
generl deposit for a vast amount of exports, as well as imports, for
the supply of that extensive region.
To obviate all difficulties produced by the bars at the mouth of
the river, and facilitate the cummunicauons between the vessels of
the bay, and the boats of the river, a wharf-bridge has been projec-
ted, and will shortly be built from the citv to the iWn wntpr imho

adapted to the growth of cotton, sugar, &c, and is so situated on the

must pass through it. This rown has been in contemplation for the
last two years, but owing to the depressed state of the country after
