as done but little for the last J8 of 10"d(tvr'.The question in re.
ition to the removal of the President and heads of Departments
o Austin although involving an intense interest h'as been eon.
lucted with great cOurTesy and liberality on the part of the mem.

Our enterprising' fellow-citizen Thomas F. McKmney is tw-
ablishing a factory of lard and tallow a few miles below Hous.
on on Buffalo Bayou. This when effected will constitute an
-ra in our commercial operations of no ordinary interest.
Notwithstanding the fact that our fine country produces al-
nost every thing necessary to our convfenience'and comfort it is
ot to be disguised that stock must for years constitute au iou
lortant nny a principal item in our agricultural pursuits:- Tas'
inequal distribution of our county into t raster -and praori? the"1'
