But there can bo no doubt of its being a

known. United States Stocks year after
year command a premium of from 12 to 20
per cent. we can see no reason why this
Confederate States Stock should not reach as
high a figure. The security is even better

the Xew Orleans banks.

A Mtt Mes!0ge wa3 then read from Gov.
Tiii morning bus been mostly consumed by
the Iiouse on a bill providing a change in tho
Tax Law. so as to permit tbe owner non res!
dent of any county to mnke a return of tbe
lands he may own in that county to the As-
sessor of tbe county of his residence at his
own valuation tiworn to in like manrcros be
returns the lands situiicd in the county of bis
residue. Much opposition is made to this
bill ; but complaints have been very generally
made by the people or tbe hardship and injus-tice-of
the present law requiring lands situ-
ated out of the countr of tbe owners 'residence
tobeasses-ed at the average valueofthelanda
of the county where it is and I presume the
present bill will pass.
I herewith send a full statement of the
amount of money now loaned to all tbe rail-
road companies of the State tbe aggregate be-
ing tlG(s500 and also a statement of tbe in-
terest nuw due and unpaid lor these loans
amounting in all to 101254. It will be seen
that the annual interest now accruing on the
loans is f 99590 or $5332 per month. By tbe
time of the meeting of tho next regular Se-s-lon
of the Legislature in-Xovember this in-
terest will amount lo just about $160000.

Mr. Walker introduced a bill to suspend te-

The Senate hs spent nearly all this fore-
ncou'd session in dicusing the bill for the en-
couragement of boin-j maaufitctun-B and final
ly after reducing the land bonus fiom eight to
mx sections for every $10000 invested tbe bill
wuspas-ed to a third reading by a vote of 15
easto 10 nays. These is scarcely a doubt
therefora that this bill will become a law of the
iitute and it will ba found to bo ooo of the
most important enactments of any session.

million of dollars en the bams "of Slate Donds

Tns Texas Ci.nthil IIailkoad. On the 2d
inst. at Houxton as we roe by a circular and
by an editorial in the Houston Telegraph tho
" Road-bed track franchises chartered rights
and privileges" and othor appurtenances of
the Uouston and Texas Central Railroad Com-
pany were sold under execution by the
Sheriff and Messrs. W. J. Uutcbins and
David H. Taiise who claim to be large stock-
holders and creditors became the purchisers.
1 he execution was on a judgment for $10000
obtained at tbe last term of the District Court-
tnd the sale was made " after doe advertise
merit." Yet it is stated "some surprise was
manifested" in Houston on tbe morning of
tie Sd when it was reported that tho sale had
been quietly made. The surprise we nnder-
s and was much greater bere among some of
the stockholders and the qniet way in which
Ihe affair took place did not quiet their feelings
si speedily as might bs imagined.
The statement is.that the Company were un-
able to meet their Itabilities.thcir floating debts
atid the interest on the permanent debt being
f o embarrassing cause.
Messrs. Uutcbins and Pago stc(eth.it they
purchased subject to mortgage and liens on
the road to the State and others amounting
In $1173000 besides the interest accrued and
due and also (or their own protection and
benefit They are they say the luwful owners
tf the Road and are desirous that all their
Ids associates who were londjidt holders of
paid up stock shall be entitled to equal advant-
ages in it with them "if any (advantsges)
there are." The enterprise musl be in an un
enviable position indeed cn such a doubt
is published concerning it by largo stockhold-
' . . ....
crs and creditors and now its lawful owners.
Messrs. Uutcbins and Page say in their cir-
cular lo tbeir former associate stockholders:
" We have advanced in our purchase more
than ten per cent on tbe amount of our stock
and propose that you and such Stockholders

S'ate Loan and other mortgago debts on the
road now pressing subject to which we pur-
chased; and also that class of debts to road
laborers which ought to be met promptly.
Tbe land and other asets of tbe old Company
cuht to be tf prudently managed sufficient
tn pay their general debts not secured on the
road. If It should be otherwise then we de-
s.re to pay the defisiencv whenever tbe earn-

In snbmilting to your honorable body those
suggestions which are deemed important and
expedient I shall begiu with that which most
essentially demands your deliberation the
legislation that will pi ore adequate to the pro-
spnt fiosneial condition of tbe Government
It is an evident fact that taxation alone will af-
ford a revenue inadequate tu the present and ac-
cruing necessities nf the State ; and the provis-
ion of a sufficient fund is at once the most dif-
ficult and essential labor which dirolros upon
you. Eren those most familiar with financial
affairs differ inatwmlly on ihm subject and the
Executive feels reluctant to submit any defin-
ite proposition of his own for that purpose.
Upon consultation with the officer io charge
of tbe financial department of tbe Sta e it was
proposed that State bonds to the amount of
ono million of dollars be sold bearing an an-
nual interest of eight per cent. payable in
semi-nnnuil instalments. Tomcetthtsintcrest
there should bean annual appropriation of a
portion of tbe revenuo arising from taxation
and a siaking fund derivable from the sums
source should be created to liquidate the prin-
J cipal. The sum obtained in this way assu-

consideration of that plan wEich wilt render
Upon an examination of the Ordinances of
tha Conventio i I find manyto which the a-ten-
"n ol 'he Legilaturu is specially requested
f"r actlu necessary on your psrt to giro
'us force and effect. There is first an Ordi-
nance respecting piione propeny socona an
Ordinance relating to Custom-House Officer
and custom revenues : third an Ordinance au-
tnonzing the purchase of arms forthejUaie ;
fourth an Ordinance concerning arms stores
'i recen'ly surrendere-1 to Texas by the U.S.
Oovernmcnt : fifth an Oidinance to provide in
part for the di fence of the frontier and of tho
State; and sixth au Ordinance; relating to tho
l1 of Texas. There are other Ordinances
equal in importance to thoxo enumerated to
the consideration of which I respectfully refer
J"ou- I have only called your attention to
these Ordinances since a reference to them will
he essential for the purpose of such legislation
as tliey may require.

Una State from tbe Government of the old

ernment of the Confederate States which with
all the other oca aired nronertT. I would urgent
ly recommend ihey should be furnished to the
lorces now abonc to enter tbe service. This
arrangement would be highly acceptable to
mauyo'f our troops and as the law for organ-
izing these reuiments requires each man to
furnish Ins own horse these animals would be
pstd for by the services of the men and thus
we miht m t only in part pay onr men bat

old United Slims Government be fairly np.
praised and fully and compleuiy scheduled

for her ri presentation in tbe Congress of the
latter Government. In accordance with an
apportionment recently mad by tbuCougress
in ression at Montgomery official information
of which however has uot yet been received
at this department Texas will be entitled to
