;tr DE BOW has been received for
September. It numbers among its arti-
cles leaders of great importance to com-
mercial readers. The speech of Calhoun
is worthy of deep attention, insomuch as
Southerners are now falling back upon the
immortal States Right doctrine promul-
gated by bim. The Sept. number oughi

pplciidid and varied assortment of Books,
Stationery and Medicines, from New York.
T'hoso of a liteiary turn should call aud see

ply of school books, &c.
J3T See notice of S. G. Allison, Car-
penter aud Joiuer, he is well known to our
eiftf.eus as an excellent and expert -workman,
prompt and energetic. Friend George
needs no commendation from our hands,
aud hope ho will succeed to the fullest ex
t nt in every branch of his business, but
om that is the Coffin department, the less
practice he has in the latter, the more
bread will be consumed. In addition to
George being a clever fellow, he is, awful
to relate, a bachelor, but he says the fault
a'int bis'n, but the gals. Somebody's to
blame, that's certain.
jteT HOUSE PAINTING. Mr. R. B.
Vandervoort advertises his card, with a
view of helpiug himself and the printer,
we hope he will elfect both. As a work-
man he has not his equal in Texas, which
ids patrons cau verify. Citizens about
having their houses painted, will do well
to secure his services, his terms ate mod
erate aud work excellent.
Business. The number of wagons in
the stieetd during the past week, recalls
the busy times, streets blocked up aud im-
passable. Judging from the heavy con-
signments to Lavaca of northern freight
we anticipate a brisk Fall trade.
HORSE TmEVES. During the last
six or eijiht weeks, several horses have been
stolen from the vicinity of Lavaca and
Chocolate Bayou. Among the sutfereis
are Messrs. Noble audBoothe; suspicions
have beou directed towards a gang of
Mexicaus, who have lately taken up their
i quarters in the neighborhood. We are not
aware that the theft can be brought home
C to them, they mauago the " running off"
so adroitly. The suspected plan is, the
actual thieves, at the fitting opportunity,
steal aud send the stock up the country in
the care of confederates, while they remain
on the grouud, avoiding by this plan as
they suppose suspicion. But the game is
pretty w ell understood, aud if there is a
coutiottauce of thefts, it is more than pro-
bable that Judge Lyuch will set the mat-
ter straight ero long.
JSST A bill has passed both Ilouses of
Cougress, giviug to each member au an-
nual salary of 3000 in place of the per
diem of eight dollars. The measure ori-
giuated in the Senate.
We will publish next week the new
Charter of the City of Lavaca, for the in-
formation of the citizeus at large.
$3T Yellow Fever at JSTcw York. We
notice by our exchanges that several etises
of black vomit have occurred in that city.
The fact has leaked out, though attempts
have beeu made to conceal its existence.
JSew Orleaus up to date, is perfectly
Y pereeive by an announcement of
Il.itris & Mortaii'i. that arrangements are
J n-ailv completed fr a ski table boat, to
nut between a. O.and Berwick's Bay. Wo
have no doubt, but that arrangements will
ere long extend to Lavaca, fur if we an
not much mistaken, the same class ship
can tun to our wharves, which can be ea-
sily ascertained by the depth of water
which the boat draws. The S. S. S. Com-
pany ar; making arrangements also, to
supply the place of the ill-fated yaatilus
with one or more ships.
SAN ANTONIO COMPANY.
We are glad to see that the Directors of
this company are taking active measures
for the construction of the Road, by ad-
vertising for contracts and bids for build-
ing, between San Autouio aud Victoiia.
Activity aud energy will inspire the plant-
ers and farmers with confidence, and in-
duce putties to come forward aud contract.
See also the notice to Stockholders in this
We learn by the Victoria Advocate and
Bastrop Advertiser, that a formidable plan
of insurrection among the slaves of Colo-
rado county had been detected aud brought
to light. The intention was, to murder
the masters and siezo upon the unman led
white women; fortunately it has been
nipped in the bud, aud the ringleaders
suspended to the amount of nine. It is
said that several hundreds were implicated
in the vile conspiracy, instigated no doubt
by Mexicans or abolitionists, who led the
unfortunates to suppose, that when murder
was committed, it would have been an
easy task to reach Mexico. This should
be a lesson to our citizeus to enact whole-
some and stringent police regulations to
govern our slave population. At the pre-
sent time, they are ready armed and moun
ted to start for Mexico, whenever they
may be seduced to do so, We abhor cru-
elty to the slave, but in the mean time we
advocate a necessary vigilance on the part
of our citizens to curb their present irre-
gularities. At all hours of the night they
roam about where they will, apparently
uncurbed by our slave regulations. "We
hope that the City council when organ
ized, will pass stringent laws for their
YE STRANGER MAN.
On Wednesday night, as the wee hours
were.-bii the wing, a stranger ma6 attemp
ted to enter the restaurant of Finkley &
Mooney, to partake of the edibles or slake
his thirst with vintage of La Champaigne,
or perhaps to replenish his exhausted cof
fers.. Major Finkley hearing the attempt
to enter, and not agreeing iu opinion with
the modus operandi of carrying out either
of the above designs ; like a valiant man,
jumped from his couch, shook himself, and
hurried down stairs on tip-toe to give ye
stranger man as hostile a reception as pos
sible, armed with a, shooting iron. Ye
stranger man having raised the sash, vyas
about to enter, when it let down on him,
like a skewered capon. Then indeed,
commenced a fight, desperate, and hand
to baud ; with pistol, knife, bottles and
fists, in fact all the appliances ol" modern
warfare were bvought into play. The
moon, pale aud in tears, on account of a
fuss she had with Mars : was hasteuinir to
the west, to drown her sorrows in the arms
of Regulus, little noted of the fierce fray
goiug on. They fought aud fit, like men
in earnest, but fortune favored ye stranger,
as the Major's shooter would not go 'off,
" Pallas came, in shape of rust,
And 'twixt the spring and hammer thrust
Her Gorgon shield, which made the lock
Staud stiff, as 'twere transformed to stock;"
The Major accordingly tried its butt eud
upon the head of his guest, about the re-
gion where the bumps of acquisitiveness
aud secretiveness lie ; battering them iu
so effectually, that the desire to appropri-
ate other's goods must have been conside-
rably diminished. Finally ye stranger
concluded to retreat, and made for the
" That ho who fights aud runs away,
Will live to fight another day,"
followed by Finkley, who resolved lo do
the hist act of hospitality to his departing
guest, in the convincing shape of a shower
of bricks, bottles, &c. which showered in
profusion, as he called his attention to the
fact, " that he needn't go home until mor-
ning," but being an early riser, ye stranger
man begged to be excused and left, taking
the fence as a short cut home. In the
conflict the Major received a cut on the
hand, severe, but not of a very serious na-
ture, as he is still able to hold his oats.
Returned. We had the pleasure of
greeting our friend Wm. J. Randall, Esq.
who has returned from New York, bring-
ing with him a large and valuable supply
THE PROSPECTS OF LAVACA.
Consequent upon the vacillating Mate
of affairs, and the contention which ha
e.isted between the lival towns on the
Bay, the i net case of either place has been
iu a measure retarded : but siuce the le-
organization of the .San Antonio Company
the prospects of Lavaca have i.sstimed a
higher -standard, and will in the couise of
next October become settled as a u fixed
fact." At no foimer peiiod was theie a
necessity for greater etiergy than at the
present, aud to do our citizeus justice, they
have nobly faced the tide forward, to meet
the emeigency ; for this self aud public
devotion they will be rewarded. Experi-
ence baa ptoved, that upon ourselves we
must depend, theie are no collate! als to
Come to our aid, we must light it out to
the ia&t extremity. We know no com-
promise and will have none. The objects
we have had in view for the last four
years are very nearly accomplished, and
it will take but a little more peij-eveiaucc
to Carry oil the laurels. We would im-
press upon the citizens the absolute ne-
cessity of unity, in fact, the vital necessity
of it. If we keep in view the doctrine of
cohesion, the lesiilts will be inevitable ;
let each and every man consult his own
private inteiest, and he will directly lind
that, that interest will be secured and pro-
tected by unitizing individual energy.
AVe now consider, that the fears which
for a time prevailed, (consequent upon
anxieties) are Hitting away as the mists of
the morning before the rising sun. So
far, have the labors of the citizen been re-
warded. We have many hard working,
indefatigable, aud self-sacrificing men in
our midst, whose labors tire prized, and
who will at the proper time receive their
rewatd ; it does not now become us to
mention them, but at the fitting time,
houor will be given to whom honor is due.
Iu conclusion we say, stand by the ship
aud she will gallantly stem the torrent in
her course, and come out with flying
colors. Let the motto be, Unity and
MUNICIPAL ELECTION. An elec-
tion will take place on the first Monday
in October, for the election of one Mayor,
eight Aldermen, one Recorder, one Treasu-
rer, one Assessor aud Collector, and a
Marshal. The election will be held at the
Restaurant of Finkley and Mooney. Judge
AST BLOCXCr-IIOUSB- It fs the uC
tentioiibf the citizens to raise by sub-
scription, a sufficient sum to build a lock
up or block-house ; for the accommodation
of all those who indulge to satiety in the
aguadiente. This is an excellent move,
and a commendable spirit. As soon as
the Corporation is organized, it will be sot
on foot; the great difficulty a constable
had to contend with, was the want of a
proper place to secure evil doers in.

$ST We allow that the genius of the
Bulletin has at last found its level. Seven
cities laid claim to the birth of Homer,
but we doubt that there will be as many
contestants for the birth of the illustrious
author of the doggerel which appeared in
the Bulletin of last week, owing to the
fact, that every hamlet and village has at
least, one poetaster, as every court has its
buffoon. Unfortunately we are not gifted
with the divine afflatus, or we should re-
ply in limes rythmical if not bland, and as
we have frequently rejected doggerel and
cross-grained verse, at the risk of gaining
a literary foe, we could not inflict upon
our readers a production to vie with the
incomparable efforts of the Bulletin's muse.
The Bard, whoever he may be, deserves a
medal made of dog-leather to perpetuate
his fame and incite his pen, to sing of
" Chow-Chow," in pot-house measure.
Chow-Chow is a dish made of sand crabs
and fiddlers, both of which abound at
Lower Indianola, and form a recherche
morccau, with the citizeus of that woe be-
gotten aud swampy region heuce the
apostrophe to " Chow-Cow." The Bul-
letin preseuts the curious anomaly of a
dog braying dogs bark, yelp, aud growl,
and consequently bray not. The only
quadruped that brays, is an animal which
it would appear the writer impersonated
ou the occasion an Ass.
" So well the subject suits his noble mind,
He brays, the laureat of the long-cat 'J kind.'

TWELVE MONTHS AFTER.
A SEQUEL 10 111U ABOVE.
The Slrangir: Lands on the Lavaca wharf
per sloop Fairy, looking considerably used up,
and much like the ' seedy gentleman.'' Meets
with Old Blow Hard, says, Major Bloio Hard,
how are you? ilajor, 1 made a great blunder
twelve months ago, when in this town, the
blunder was sir. not settling in Lavaca. Filled
with false luinois about the tiade and com-
merce of Powder Horn, I resolved lo locate
there. I did so accordingly and have got my
fill, enough to last the balance of a life time.
Blow Hard. Stranger, what you were told
was said in candor. I knew you were a stran-
ger, and if you went to Powder Horn, they
would take you in, 1 am sorry that my antici-
pations were so literally fulfilled, however, it
is not too late. "Well stranger, what did you
drive at 1
Stranger. When 1 landed at Powder Horn,
I was met at the wharf by half a dozen land
sharks, who offered great bargains in lots, 1
managed to leach the hotel however, but could
not escape. I finally purchased two lots in
block , and found a short time after, that
both were under water, however it was too
late to recede, and worse than all, the lilies
were not worth chaff, the whole town site being
in litigation. Col. Pufiemup called upon rac
next day, and blandly told me ioul'L'flll them
ud i'or S50 a lot. but I saw I wr5vtuck com
pletely, and resolved to let them $undcr wa
ter. I opened a commission house, but found
that nine tenths of the freight irom New York
and New Orleans was consigned to Lavaca
During the time 1 kept office 1 received 4 coils
of rope, 20 kits of mackeiel, and 10 brls saur
kraut, the commissions on which amounted to
$5,23 cents, seeing tie despeiate state ol
allairs I resolved to leave. The citizeus got
wind of my intention and a committee of fif-
teen, waited upon me, begging me to remain.
I told them as follows: Gentlemen, I am sold,
for twelve months you milked me, till 1 am
l ear run dry. 1 am determined to leave and
that for Lavaca if I took Major Blow Hard's
advice, twelve months' ago, 1 would now be
an independent man with that, they all sloped.
1st Citizen. Well Colonel, we are glad to
see you among us, even though the quods have
fleeced you at Powder Horn.
Stranger. Fleeced me, yes Sir, they come
pretty nigh skinning me, Sir, I never lived in
such a confounded hole, sand ciabs and fid-
dleis, Sir, kept crawling over everything, then
Sir' the noisome smell ol the swamps, enough
to kill a horse sir, and the sand Sir, enough to
run an alligator blind. Such a hole I Hea-
vens preserve me I Irom such a take in again.
Blow Hard. "Well, Colonel, what do they
do, at Powder Horn, to pass away time 1
Stranger. Why Sir. they get up mock auc-
tions of lots, plan new town sites, play Irceze-
out. and build castles in the air. Yes Sir,
castles as high as Parnassus. They are a
community of humbugs, they have placed a
fictitious value on lots, there is a regular
league Sir, to take in the uninitiated. They
have their runners through the county Sir,
suborned hy the pretended owners of lots, to
induce people to settle there. It is Sir, an out-
rage upon humanity.
Bloio Hard. Colonel, we will not oficr you
a lot lor sale, remain with us awhile, make no
investment, see the progress we make, judge
our trade, see how the railroad is progressing,
and then Colonel make a strike.
