&$ marshaled in every way but they cannot compass it
It must exist in the man m the subject and in the oc-
casion. - Affected passion intense expression the pomp
of declamation all may aspire after it they cannot
reach it. It comes if it comes at all like the outbreak-
ing of a fountain from the earth or the bursting forth
of volcanic fires with spontaneous original native
force. The graces taught in the schools the costly or-
naments and studied contrivances of speech shock and
dligust men when their own lives and the fate of their
wives their children and their country hang on the
decision of the hour. Then words have lost their pow-
er rhetoric is vain and all elaborate oratory contempti-
ble. Even genius itself then feels rebuked and subdued
as in the presence of higher qualities. Then patriotism
is eloquent; then self-devotion is eloquent. The clear
conception out-running the deductions of logic the
high purpose the firm resolve the dauntless spirit
speaking on the tongue beaming from the eye inform-
ing every feature and urging the whole man onward
rignt onward to his object this this is eloquence: or
rather it is something greater and higher than all elo-
quence it is action noble sublime god-like action.
BT THE PRE3IDEHT OP THE REPUBLIC OP TEXAS.
WHEREAS it has become a custom among the civilized and
Christian nations of the earth to render evidence of na-
tional calamities and national blessings by the public manifestation
of their respect for the religious observance of certain days for
fasting and prayer: and whereas this is a decorous and becoming
acknowledgement of that feeling which evinces to our fellow men
and to nations that we entertain a profound belief in the existence
of an Almighty God who controls the des'inies of the world
whose favor we invoke and whose wrath we deprecate : and where-
as the Texian people have- been objects of the peculiar care and
interposition of a Divine Providence; and after the chastisements
of His will He has manifested His abundant kindness by ena-
bling them to occupy a place among the independent governments
of the earth : Therefore
Be it known that I Sam Houston President of the Republic of
Texasdo by these presents recommend to the good people of Texas
to set apart and observe the Second Day of March 1842 thejymir
versary of our National Independence as a day for3evotional ex-
eYcts'es'fby'snspending alT temporal avocations and appropriating
(he day to religious and Christian worship.

" PROSPECTUS ' - ..
THE undersigned propose to publish at Clarkesville Red River
county (Texas) a weekly newspaper with the above title.
The paper will be edited by Charlks De Mors.
It is designed to represent the peculiar interest of the great sec-
tion of country bordering upon the Red'River and stretching do wb
towards the counties of Milam and Robertson Nacogdoches and
Shelby so far as it may be compatible With the general interests of
the Republic; and it will endeavor to represent the views wishes
and necessities of the people of that section in such manner as t
give them uue weight in the consideration of the country and the
action of their government. It will look to that people for its prin-
cipal support ; though its conductor proposes to fill it with such mat-
ter as to render it an agreeable visiter to nearh every farm-bous
in the Republic
One of the undersigned is a practical printer and has had long
experience in the business and in the publication of a newspaper.
The other with an inclination for editorial life will devote .such
ability as he has to thc conducting of this paper and sedulously en-
deavor to make it interesting and instructive; and will at all times
maintain so far as his judgment and capacity serve a high stand for
the press making it useful and profitable to those from whom if
any it will derive sustenance. Both of them have been for six
years in Texas have partaken in some of its hardships and beliert
they have a general knowledge and appreciation of its wants.
The Standard will present to its readers the earliest items of
news derived through the ordinary channels and by means oi nu-
merous correspondents of high character throughout the country'
accompanied with such remarks as the facts may give rise to.
It will Ireely comment upon all political movements coming with-.
in its consideration and its stand in such matters will be high and
fearless of results especially eschewing the narrow bigotry of the-
tool and the fierce invective of the pariizan and endeavoring at
all times to deserve confidence by the purity cf its piinciplcs and
the straight-forward unflinching yet moderate tone of its ex-
pressions. Having in view the true interests of the people ; receiving dicta-
tion from no man or set of men; yielding blind support to no aspi-
rant for public honors and lending itself to the petty interests of no
clique it will look with confidence to that people for support.
If sustained it will not act upon chimerical or overstrained no-
ions of propriety political or moral but will essay to define that
true medium of correctness which really does exist and point out
-any infraction of its dictates; and particularly it will avoid being"
influenced by any hasty prejudice or unsonnd and ill-considered
scheme which may agitate for the time the section of country in i
which it is located endeavoring coolly to scan the merits of all im-
portant propositions before giving them support.
The paper will present as soon as the necessary arrangements
can be made a selection of superior literary matter from the best
American and English periodicals with occasional extracts from
valuable literary and scientific works; placing before its readers. in
lieu of the old advertisements which occupy so largewspace in
most of the papers of the day interesting reading matter which
they could not otherwise obtain without serious expense and diffi-
culty. In addition to this will be published notices of all improvements
in agriculture and agricultural implements and generally such in-
formation as will be valuable to the farmer the artizan and the mer-
chant ; and to those who may combine with any of these the refined
taste and accomplishments of the scholar; and last though certain-
ly not least its columns will be varied and graced with selections
for the express benefit of the ladies.
To effect all this and continue it it will be necessary of course
that our subscription list be extensive and that the payments be
prompt and in advance.
The enterprise has been undertaken at the instance of the Red Ri-
ver Delegation in the present Congress who have promised strenu-
ous exertions in its behalf; and have informed us that the establish-
ment of such a press has been to the people of the Red River coun-
ties a matter of primary desire for several years past. If this be
. so they will of course readily advance the necessary means for its
support. "We should certainly think the great scope of country r
and .amount of population to be supplied would amply maintain
such a journal as we propose to publish certainly if the people
are awaKe to their own interest it will. Those citizens who desire
to see a papei of the kind exist must come forward without delay
to sustain it.
As soon as the press and materials can be procured the 'firs
number will be issued on a super-royal sheet. It will be furnished
to subscribers at Six Dollars per annum payable in all cases in
The price of the paper is only one dollar per annum more than
that of the weekly papers of.the'city of New Orleans which is by
no means commensurate with the difference in the expense of pub-
lication and extent of circulation. " v
