"great inducements to business men, who wish
to avail themselves of the benefits of adver

self that nothing rasli or hasty would be

B? We learn that a military com-

glad tonote this. It shows that the
people-of some portions of Washington
coirntyare not indifferent to the neces-

we are sorry to say, that the complin
menfc uMiot be applied to this place.
This reflects credit upon the Washings

Have we a Dictator ?
The treatment of Governor Houston,
towards the Houston Committee, upon
being presented, by the'eminent gentle-
men who composed it, with the memo-
rialof theirconstituents calling for a ses
sion of the Legislature, was character-
ized by his usual contemptuous man-
ner. The committee from. Burleson
county met with the samaif not greater
indignity. So far as we are advised,
this has been the case with every peti-
tion that las been presented.
"Notwithstanding the position of Gov-
ernor Houston in the present state of
political affairs, placing him in oppose
tion to the dominant popularsentiment,
be should "at least treat-with that re
spectbich is due them, the people
who bave made him what be is. He
does not deny thenigbt of petition, and
when the people adopt that method of
appealing to him, he "s recreant to every
principle pfcourtesy, as well as duty,
f he fails to give it a careful attentive
and deliberate perusal and a proper re-
ply. His conduct appears all the more
acelessin the case of Burleson county,
when it is Temembered, that a majority
iof Iter citizens, and of those who stand
most prominent on the petition list, gave
him their vote in the last g abernatorial
election. Tfiese-individuals thought
that when they gave their voice for
Houston that they were placing a man
in the Executive Chair who word be
the Governor of the people who would
accede to their unanimous will, express
ed in alegltimatechannel,much less were
they prepared to receive at his hands a
wanton and unprovoked insult. They
were not aware that they were appoint-
ing an agent, who would constitute
himself a dictator and array the dictum
of his majestic will, against the voice of
a united people who have always main-
tained the right of thinking for thems
But this modern Caesar wishes to
"bestride the State like a Colossus,"
whilst the free citizens of Texas " walk
under his huge legs and peep about to
find dishonorable g.-aves" for themsel
ves and their opinions. Immaculate

whom he has just insulted so flagrantly,
to tear away by force the heretics from

To the Editor of tlie "Texas Ranger"
The citizens of this county assembled
here to-day to hear the answer of the
Governor to the Memorial sent up from
this county, requesting him to call the
The meeting was organized by call-
ing B. J. Chance, Esq., to the chair, and
Jas. Thomas, Secretary.
The committee who had waited on
the Governor, stated that they received
no answer from him, and had no other
report to make. The meeting then
passed a resolution requesting the Gov-
ernor to resign, and permit some other
person to fill the Executive chair who
would comply with the manifest wishes
of the people of the State. This resol n
tion was passed, as were all the others
acted upon by the meeting, without a
The meeting then adopted the Dlan
recommended by the meeting at Hous-
ton, ordering an election for delegates
to a State Convention, election to be cu
the 8th of January, and Convention to
be held m Austin on the 4th Monday
in January. To this plan it is hoped
all the counties in the State will at once
agree, and proceed to act upon it.
If 'Gen. Houston vishes to ascertain
whether the farmers and stockra;sers
and the masses of tho people are enaf-
ed in these movements, or whether, as
charge 1 by him in his contemptible
Huntsville letter, they are gotten up
and conducted by rash and hot headed
politicians, ho had better attend some ' '
them, and he will then see and know
what manner of men are concerned in
this movement. Tyranny U a part o"
the old man's nature, and he now re-
joices in the opportunity to exhibit it,
but he will learn tojiis cost that he has
this time made a grand mistake, and
fthaj; the people are determined, in spito
of him, to protect themselves and their
property against the Black llepublicans.
