On last Saturday evening. Major Mar-
shall left fir Mississippi for hi." fimily who
have for several months ben absent on a
visit to their relatives and friend'. During
most of the time Mr." M. has been in bad
health and unable to roturu sooner Major
Marshall will be absent i or eight weeks.
The writer of this nrticle promised hiui
before leaving to render such iditvHal

That there may be no misunderstanding
as to whom the writer is. he will -tato that
he was for three yearj associated with Major
Marshall asoneof the 1'iopriotors and Edi
toil of the Qmlette 1'or that period of time
he was responsible for the political course of
the paper he hat received his portion of
the abase heaped upou the paper Marshall
& Oldham and the "Austin clhiie" for
the course the paper ha- pursued.
The abuse first came from the Know No-
thing party while it acknowledged an ex-
istence as a party. It was repeated by Sam
Houston and hi- -trikers find now it i
reiterated bv thi anti-judicial nomina-
tion" party compoeedof E N. Houstonites
and Democrats who have appealed to thtm.
to reverse at the polls the action of the De-
mocratic party in uiskip.- nominations tor
On last Saturday the Editor t f thin paper
turned upou his pur-iier- in . cm-tic arti-
cle. That urticl" provoked an exceedingly
personal article- iu the ntdligenoSTof Wed-
nesday. That portion ot the article which
reflects upon Major Mar-hall individuilly
he is douhtleil amply able and willing to
attend to and will no doubt do so upon his
return Tint portion which might by in-
ference be made to refle?t upon the writer
of rhil article has been adjusted.
As the writer ha- come in for nil full
'tare of the obloquy that ha? been heaped
upon Democrats at this plaoe for the oourae
pursued by himteif and others bo feels
called npOB in ielf-defeuce to vindicate
himself and h:.s political UfOOattOl from the
odium that has been amopted to bo heaped
At the same timo lit: teels called upon
to discuss freely and fully not only the po-
litical acts of himself and friend- but al-o
those of their MtUtttl aiweil as the mo-
t'ves which have or may prompt them.
This he will do fearlessly.
At the samf lime it will uut be improper
to say that he has no disposition to indulge
in personalities or aspersions of private cha.
racter. When a controversy becomes per-
sonal it ceases to bo a fit subject for the
columns of a newspipei. ;.nd lAotald lie ar-
The political ac's of men aud their trans-
actions with the public so far as the inter

feels himself perfectly justifiable in going
in the performanue of the duty he has
taken upon himself. Circumstances have

Marble quarry of white marble
has bceu discovered en the land of Dr. W.
C. Phillips about li 1-'.' miles from town.
It is found on the surface of the earth
over a space of five or six acres and is
doubtless more extensive. The Commis
sioner aud Superintendent of the Lunatic
Asylum have adopted this marble .- the
material for the construction of the Asy-
lum building. It will sustain a fine polish
and is well calculated for building purpo-
ses. A house constructed of it will be
beautiful and durable. There appears to
be no danger from disintegration as this
stone will bear unchanged any vicissitude
of temperature. The geological survey of
the State about to bo commenced under
favorable auspices will bring to licjht many
hidden resources of the country aud ren-
der lands extremely valuable which were
before entirely unappreciated. It is a pity
the quarry in question had nut been found
previous to the erection of the Capitol and
other public edifices in the city.

bottle of Sorgho syrup by Dr. Sneed who
resides near this place which we can safely
say ' fir better thau auy we have se-en or

gallons to the acre. If all of our plauters

regular salaries Stblch are ample and
which they hid received amounting to
about sixty-eight thousand dollars. This
was a pure gratuity of the people's money.
Sotm twenty-six Democrats took the same
position ami when tKe ft te was taken it
was fbnnd that tbe bill was defeated. In
or '.oi to save the Utah appropriation these
twenty-six voted with others to re. ODsider
hoping that the rebuke administered by the
defeat of th" bill would cause its objec-
tionable features to be itrioken out. On
another vote bovvevr many democrats
voted for the bill and with the aid of flic
Hlaek Republican vm . li was carried.
Many others however like Mr. lteagan.
"till refused to endorse it with their votes.
Mr. Reagan bad proposed to tl e Chair-
man v' the Committee of Ways and Means
and also to Mr Letober who had muoh to
do with the bill that if they would consent
to let him and his friends have a separate
vote vviih eyei ind nsys on these two clauses
of the bill thai tbejf would be satisfied and
it they could nor vote them out they
would submit to the majority and v its for
the bill with these provisions in it. This
was refused the parties saying that these
