To the Editors of the State Gazette: i ''" ''
The dull season for trailu litis aet in here.r YcHliore is a remarkable c1iflr-
enco botwocn the dull season of tins. and sono" few former years. Norwitl'i-
titnnding tliu iinilerutiriiato which inn tiy haviiet upon our rivers die TrllTity
and Brazos have this year nnd tho year before Aupplled a almtiliel for the pas-
ngo of nil the produce that was placed upon thle banks. It would have been
tho .same had thoroduco been ictilouli- Tlio Trinity is at present in lino
boating order amllsteamcr.i aro acendinu with an up froifjht but without any
prospect of return -cargo. Surely our rivers nre not to b"e despised by those
who live near them. ' . ' ' i
'The Galveston nouston and Henderson Railroad company has completed
the survey to Houston nnd nre now advertising for proposals for the construc-
tion of tho road to that place. At the same- time an opportunity is being
given to those' wliojlesire to do so to lake stock in the enterprise.
So far we hayo'.nrjjoahdidates for the I.esislatnrc. It is generally understood
!( that.M. M.jPottor Esq. will be a candidate for re-election to the Senate; .Mr.
''Hartley nnd'Mfi Andrews both decline to run ttgnm. '
It. is not certniiwhicli of the candidates for Congress will lead here ; tho voto
' will probably be pretty well divided JV1y own impression is that Mr. Scurry
" -. -will receive the largiist vote. Mr. Pease will receivcnearly a unanimous vote

Q We. learn from a gentleman of Polk county who was in
'.fthis city a few days since that the prospect for abundant crops in that
' eounty is by no means flattering; the spring was backward and wet
and the crops are not so forward as they are west of the Brazos.
"From' the same source we learn that Mr. Thomas H. Espy is a can-
didate to represent Polk and Trinity counties in the neu House of

will arrest thereader's attention. The New Orleans papers speak in
jhigh praise orethejattitictiveness of.'this watering-place. .; '

Q3r Gov. Paine and the other members of the railroad delegation
from the North left this city on Monday evening for Fort Graham
accompanied by Maj.- Arnold and fully equipped with pack-mules
provisions &c for their trip west. At Fort Graham they expect to
meet Gen. Husk and also to obtain an escort of United States Dra-
. gooiwto accompany .them through to El Paso.
While at Houston a number of the most prominent citizens of that
pla.ee addressed these gentlemen a letter in which they say:
"The accomplishment of your entorp'isp will bo fraught with .the richest
blessings-to Texas; and as we believe ensure tho strength and (lurd)ility of

' Some tun'nfo thJrotelUiipniy hands the published proceedings of
what is ternqd"the great tfteetitig of thtv friaudpf the Texas Central
llaiirond at Grtlvestou.-Neariywevcr iuee I lirfvc been-engaged in
active life I have been' thor't). or lesSjCtniVerwiit wiilv.piibliG meetings
similarly gottiht up'.B'wu&.tlie m'uetiiijr at Gav6stoii.-; and I do hope
that the people williiave spirit enough to think for themselves in a
matter of so great -importance as tho building of a central railroad
I mean the people who reside in the upper portion of the State-. They
must and do know that the citizens of the coast feel a great desire Ihnt
a railroad should be built and that it should commence at soma .point
convenient to them and becuuse those who have composed tho meet-
ing aljuded to have said that Galveston is the place is no evidence
that wo should be still and decide with-them tlmt no other place will
do. They huve in that meeting paraded their best orators on the ros-
trum to make their speeches calculated no doubt to fill the. minds of
the hearers with a spirit of enthusiasm upon the improvement of tho
country which is all right in its place but the calm reflection of ev:
ery mind ought to bo enthusiastic on a subject of that kind when its
tendency is to be the greatest benefit to the greatest number of the
people. Now I would usk your numerous readers if they think this
spirit has in any dOgree exhibited itsclfiu the proceedings of the Gal-
veston meeting? They must and will come to the conclusion that a
spirit of selfishness has manifested itself all the time and the mer-
chants and all who do any kiud.ofVbusuiess in Galveston have and are
growing rich upon what they can 'make out of the people 0f this up-
per country (or at least a large -'portion of it) and they know we I
that if the spirit of internal improvement is aroused up here and cut
olffrom them that they will feel tho shock more sensibly than almost
any other shipping point iujrexas. Suppose a starting point is made
at Vicksburgon tho Mississippi and run centrally through the State
and across the Brazos at the Great Falls or some point convenient
above these and on to the city of Austin; then to a terminus west
wherever it would bo most convenient is it ii'ibt' reasonable to con-
cludc that it would embrace a lartrar portion of the Slate and conse
quently a larger 'number of the people in tho State ? Then let the
branches extend each way as prudence will suggest for thobeneut of
the interior portions of the country. I do not think it rigtit that.orie
place should be benefitted alone to the exclusion of others wlifju an
enterprise of so vast importance to the whole State is thus beginning
to be agitated. It is not necessa1y; to confine a rail rbadt the most
populous portions of the country?' if.the means can be hadAithout it
because when such improvements are. "made the country will very
soon become populous. We do not doubt that thjj amount of 5300-
000 has. been subscribed in Galveston already but. if it has been it
willbe- paid indirectly by the people who do their trading at that
point. The active business men of that place aro too well skilled not
to know how that amount of funds can be raised without material
injury to them. The proceedings of theaforesaid meeting allude to
the desire in some parts of the State manifested by the people to unite
in building a railroad to New Orleans rather than to points oil our
own coast and tho spirit of opposition is immediately manifest in the
summary of expenses appended to Ihe proceedings referring to that
particular and the ship of seven hundred tons burthen would amount
to u very considerable sum of expenses yhicli wo tfuilk might not be
charged at Galveston but no intimations are there stated' that such
expenses would not be charged. The seven hundred tons are intend-
ed tq be confined to the article of cotton. The honest industrious
farmer'has expense enough to incur already but hisanuu'al expenses
as they occur would greatly aid m the construction of a great central
road and he would be greatly benefitted if he did not have to risk the
dangers'of' the gulf at all. And it is. reasonable that if the interest
of the farmer is brought to view in these railroad discussions it will
always be safer not to touch tho gulf and insurance houses that may
be planted along the coast to catch a penny out of tho hard earnings
of the laboring class of our citizens. Wo have suggested no plau for
an enterprise like a central railroad and wc do not intend' doiifgt
I further than already intimated;but hope th' the matter wilUbtifuon-1
i . i1--
sidcrcd as maturely as the- proceedings of thy Galveston meeting-.
The views taken by Mr. Jennings are very correct. That it coifld
not bo possible to have a railroad running to every man's door but we
do think that the great central Pacific road should not' at any point
touch the coast of tho Gulf of Mexico but we of this upper part of
Texas could have no objections to the appropriation of the 300000
already subscribed to be expended in building a trunk with a terminus
at Galveston. If wc do not think for ourselves in the interior of 'our
country we have grounds to believe our interests will be overlooked
by those who have been long supported by our labor and W6 wish to
have a road that will be ageneral and not an iitdividual'btjuefit and
if it can be so constructed. fr.om an important point on the Mississippi
the" great interest of Galveston and New Orleans will be put in jeop-
ardy m'nd well they know it. and from circumstances wc aro induced
to'believe that the citizens of each place are beginning to fear-it.
Sji'jouldfttfie starting point be abovp New Orleans' or iii connection
witlrHho enterprise of the more Northern roads.-Hhe interest of both
th6seplace3 will be made to tremble as' well as fear. -I love to see
and hear that the internal improvement spirit is getiing-'up and it is
eliciting the 'zeal of- many portions of Texas as well as the talents of
the btate in-Uelinlt'ot works ol internal improvement puiqisHkfc to
see too much concentrated to the interest of an isolated poiiitw ifrshnll
say more oh this subject if you think this worthyof a p!aco''iti?your
paper. - . A Friend ttf-'Sexx Interests.
