The Dallas Herald’s Fort Worth

terday morning two armed white

were ploughing on the farm of Mr.

[Texas Oor. Cincinnati Enquirer.]
Tho ranchmen are a singular
bold, bravo, free, hardy set of fel-
lows; living in Ibe open air, away
from every vestage of civilization,
they naturally learn to be self-reli-
ant, and for a skirmish with the In-
dians or the peculiarities ot an en-
raged bull. Mounted on their fleet
and powerful ponies, with unerring
certainty thoy can throw the lariet
over the horns of a cow or the head
of a wild horse,, and, in less time
than it takes to tell it, lnavo them at
their mercy. Thoy ride like dare-
devils, over morass, through the
brake, or up the steepest ascent,
where others would bo sure to come
to grief. In every sense of tho word,
they are Texas Hangers, and aru
proud *f the appellation. Go to
their cabins, and they will treat you
with the greatest possible kindness,
just as long as you want to stay—
giving you the choices cut of the
roast at tho table, and the best deer-
skin to sleep on at night. They are
as honest as hold, and any man can
stay with them, with any amount of
money, in pot-feet safety.
The City of Cincinnati has made

Senator Morton is an eminent
statesman of the Republican party.
He lias been tho upostlo of repres-
sion and revenge. lie has cham-
pioned every infancy or usurpation
i-i the South that called itself a Gov-
ernment. Therefore, when ho pro-
nounces New Orleans a dead city he
speaks his own condemnation and
that of his party. Dying New Or-
leans represents the ignorance, the
cupidity, the folly and the crimes of
Mr. Morton’s party.—New York
