steamboat invention and Mr. Rum
sey bad no less a witness in bis
behalf than George Washington,
who, in an endorsement forming a
part of the records of the case,
"I have seen the model of Mr.
Ramsey’s boat, constructed to
work against stream, examined
the powers upon which it acts,
been eye-witness to an actual ex-
periment in running water o
some rapidity, and give it as my
opinion (although I had little
faith before) that he has dis-
covered the art of working boats
by mechanism and small manual
assistance against rapid currents;
that this discovery is of vast im-
portance, may be of greatest use-
fulness m our inland navigation ;
and if it succeeds, of which 1 have
no doubt, that the value of it is
greatly enhanced by the simplicity
of the works, which, when seen
and explained, may be executed
by the most common mechanic.

On the date of the battle of San
Jacinto, April 21, 1836, the corn-
lined population of Texas, Indians
included, was approximately 40,-
000. Of this number not more
25,000 were whites.
By 1850 the population had in-
creased nearly six-fold, or to 212,-
592. In 1860 it was 604,251, an
increase for the decade of 184 per
cent; in 1870 818,579, an increase
of 35 per pent; in 1890, 1,591,749,
or 94 per cent; in 1890 2,235,523,
or 40 per cent; in 1900 3,048,710,
or 36 per cent; in 1910 3,896,542,
or 28 ner cent.
A recent report of the United
States Census shows that in Texas
the negro race did not increase
