slave institution in Texas are " creatures who

an insult to the non-slaveholder in Texas and
in the South. It is false to say that the non-
slave holder who defends the institution is
: not a true Southern man in all his feelings

mainlv for the defense of the institution.

Mr. Buchanan he (Douglas) always coun

Bell county is also increasing. It is a thrif-
ty county and has large bodies of good land.
It has not so many horses or cattle as Wil-
liamson bnt the value ol its slave property is
fully one-third of the other property.
The town of Belton is the county site and
is situated on a small stream called Noland's
Here are two newspapers the Democrat and
the Independent. Capt. John Ilenry Frown
so well known as a good writer and useful le
gislator presides over the Democrat with
much credit. Mr. White is the courteous
and successful publisher.
The rich surrounding country will always
make Belton a town of some importance. Its
worthy mayor appears to take a deep interest
in its improvement.
McLellan lies still further north. It con-
tains the town of Waco which is much larger
than any town out of Austin on this route
and it is so situated that its future is quite
promising. The Houston railroad will evi-
dently come either direct to Waco or near it.
The back country is largp and productive.
The counties of Bosque Hill Coryell Hamil-
ton Comanche etc. trade with Waco. The
Brazos river sweeps by it. We were glad to
find many improvements since 1857 when we
were last in this city. Some of its mercantile
establishments are three stories in height. It
has some churches and the private dwellings
are many of them well built and substantial.
Here ore two newspaper the. Waco Demo-
crat conducted by Shook Esq.. and the
South West about appearing under the aus-
pices of W- H. Parsons. Esq. The abilities of
this gentleman bae been manifested in many
creditable productions published in the press.
Both papers sustain the nominees of the De-
mocratic party. "
In the bottom lands fine crops of cotton are
made in McLellan. Tlwp are about 2.C0O
slaves in the county and this property large-
ly exceeds one-third of the value of other pro-
perty being put down by the assessor at over
a million of dollars. The total value of all
the property in the ccupty is a little over
.82500000. The stock raised in MaLecnap
is not as large as in Williamson or Bell.
In all these counties wheat rye barley
and oats iivy be successfully raised. And for
sheep horses or cattle good places can ev-
erywhere be found. There is but little per-
ceptible difference in climate.
This fall a beautiful carpet of grass every-
where abounds and plenty of water. Com-
plaints of want of water for stock have been
made during the heavy droughts of summer
but much of it can and will be remedied. All
that is necessrry is for the stock raiser to
close up some rarine or take off the top earth
and pound well the clay in some depres-
sion of the surface on the prairies where water
may "e caught during the freshets and good
supplies of water might thus be kept during
the whole of every summer.
We have conversed fully with intelligent
and practical farmers who have succeeded in
this way and recommend it to others to try.
In our opiniop the stock raiser need only look
to the character of the Ranije He can have
plenty of water by using the proper labor.
As to the value of lands in these counties
they may be bought at from two bitts to fifty
and sixty dollars per acre. Perhaps it might
be safe to say that improved Brazos ands
could be bought at $20 to $30; improved
prairie lands at $3 to $16. Wild lands on
the prairie rate for good locations at about $2.
In all this region the settler is free from all
molestation by the Indians. Schools and
places of worship are always to be found at
eonvenient distances where the country is
settled. It is watered by the Brazos Leon
Lampasas the Salado and the San Gabriel
with many other minor streams. In Bell and
McLennan there is what is called the Lime-
stone Hills where large bodies of that rock is
obtained for all the purposes of building.
There are many instances of thrift we might
advert to in these counties but it is simply
necessary to say that no industrious man can
fail to become rich by proper application in
any branch of business. Industry is every-
where well rewarded. It is the best country
in the world for the mechanic the farmer and
merchant. All persevering men in these
pur.-uits have done well.
In traveling to Northern Texas we cross
the Brazos at this point. We shall glance at
the upper portions cf the State in anothe.
Tbe Democratic Club.
On the 1st inst. Col's. Neal and Frank
White addressed by special invitation the
Breckinridge and Lane Club in this city.
Col. Ncal made a sensible and instructive
speech clearly defining the issues between
the parties and showing it to be the duty o
every true friend of the Union to vote for
Breckinridge and Lane.
Col. Frank White delivered an excellent
and effective address. He made a strong
speech for the Constitution and the rights of
the South. He boldly and eloquently pro-
claimed the right and the duty of the South
to resist every assault upon slavery at all
hazards and to the last extremity. Slavery
was the great issue before tbe country ana
could not be evaded.
He exposed with much force and point the
selfish object of the fusion which was designed
to prop the waning fortunes of the Opposition
leaders and to defeat the Democratic party.
While it calls for the support of the friends of
Breckinridge it is based upon hostility to him
and tbe assumption that there is no chance
for him. Its ostensible object was to cast the
vote of Texas for the strongest man against
Lincoln. But how could that fact be ascer-
tained when all the electoral tickets would
be unpledged on the fusion principle. A fu-
sion could only be efficacious to defeat Lincoln
in a free State.

tional and legal ties without reciptocal trust

and recrimination give me rather separation

existing issue and is not willing to await for

of John Bell?
In our paper of to-day will be found a letter
written by Uerschei. V. Johnson the nom-
inee for Vice President on the Douglas ticket
in which he advocates the very doctrine of
secession which Mr. Douglas denounced in his
It is evident that Mr. Johnson's principles
are in the wrong pew though he iiimself may
delight to sit in it side by side with Douglas.

the Union but the right of Revolution and
that he will help to keep in the refractory
H. V. Johnson says the "right of peaceable
secession must be maintained: it is the only
hope of the South."

might the attempt of the Government to

Explosion. We have the particulars of
the explosion pf the Bayou City Capt. For-
rest from a passenger on board. It occurred
at about 12 or 1 o'clock at night when most
of the passengers were in bed and thus the
death of many were prevented. As it is the
number of killed is dreadful to contemplate.
We understand that the killed missing and
wounded number twenty-one. The names
of the killed are

Thomas Westrop Stewart ;

in which T. Westrop was killed.
The lady of Mr. Darden of this city was

Disunion It has been industriously cir-
culated by little office seeking adherents of
Douglas that the advocates of Breckinridge
and Lane are Disunionists. The following
are thesentiments of the Atlanta Confederacy

Hon JosiaH Crosby. We call attention
to the proceedings of a festival at El Paso
given to this gentleman in compliment of his
past services. Judge Crosby is endeared
very justly to his fellow citizens by the in-
dependent position which he has taken in up-
holding the doctrine of State Rights. It is
this banner alone which can save the Union.
On many past occasions we have spoken of
his labors for the Democracy. It gives us
great pleasure to find that they are apprecia
ted hy his neighbors and friends at home and
to add that we regard him as a bold and fear-
less defender of the rights of the South and
well calculated to add to the strength of the
Breckinridge party in Texas.
" It will be grantod that the opposition to
Lincoln possesses the strength to certainly
carry off California Illinois Indiana. New

enable them to do this they must have guar-
antees from the South that they will assist
them to complete the good work and defeat

Pretty fair this that we should have to
enter into bond and security with the North
that tbe South seriovdt desires to beat Lincoln!
Wonder if they will take Elisha for security ?
What do you all say ? Hope he has copies of
all the speeches he uttered last year in favor
of the " dignity of white labor and the pros-
pect of the whites in Western Texas being
crowded out by "niggers."

whom I considered the friend of the South
reacting the part of Van Buren in 1848 as-
sisting tbe Whigs and Know-Nothings to de-
feat the Democrats in Virginia holding that
the South may rightfully be excluded from
the public lands and that she shall be com-

Such sentiments merit the severest rebuke
from every being who loves the South.

but if the people will not trust them with all
their braggadocio and threat then the Union
must be dissolved to give petty Republics to
petty demagogues. They have taken the
only possible means to ensure the election of
a Black Republican President and yet they
do not hesitate to declare that they would
hang every mail-carrier post-master Judge
and Marshall who should hold office under
him! The mails and every branch of the
public service are to be arrested and the
country thrown into revolutii n upon the
mere election and without waiting for a revo-
lution of tho constitution! These are the
men who dare talk about treason and traitors !
They will vote for no candidate but the one
of the bolting secessionist all others in
their eyes are worse than Lincoln and yet
if theythus elppt Lincoln they will plunge
the country into civil war.
I express no preferences for the Presidency.
I advocate no candidate or the dogma of any
candidate I accept no platform but that ot
our fathers "The Constitution and the L nion.
It was the platform which 1 proclaimed and
on which succeeded in Texas; and the tail
which has been stuck to the kite "the en-
forcement of the laws" is only a sequence of
every honest man constitutional both. Nor
do I say that all of the new party who call
themselves "Constitutional Democrats" are
Disunionists pr that their candidates compre-
hend the full purposes of the leaders who have
gone so far in their purposes. I can only de-
monstrate mj meaning by an anecdote. An
honest Dutchman in Virginia was the leading
Whig of his neighborhood Uo wan sued for
his land and as the Judge before whom the
trial was to be had was a Democrat Stein-
berger thought that he had best pay him a
visit. The following dialogue ensued j
Stfiinberger Well Judge you is a Demo-
crat and 1 is a Whig. That ish all right.
Well Judge we sometimes beat you and
you sometimes beats us that ish all right.
Steinberger Well Judge ; they has started
on me the biggest lie in the world They say
that I said every Whig was an honest man
and every Democrat a rascal I never said it
Judge I am happy to hear it. It would
have been a harsh expression.
Steinberger This I said Judge: every
Wl ig is honest and every rascal is a Demo-
crat. Great laughter.
It will be hardly credible to many of the
citizens of Texas and the South that such
sentiments could be uttered by a Governor
of a Southern State. It confirms the allega-
tion often made that Gov Houston was once
really suspected of desiring to make the Re-
public of Texas a free State. This is a part
of jet unwritten history. Cannot the truth-
ful historians of the Texa Almanac give the
facts concerning it?

On one occasion I waited upon him to as-
certain if the report was true that he and Bu-
chanan had had an interview for the purpose
of settling their dispute. I said to him that
as the correspondent of a leading Republican

report if true tended to compromise my po-
sition and I thought therefore that I wa en-
titled to a fair answer to a fair question.
"I asked him to say to me frankly if there
was any truth in the report ;" a hand

dent told me if I did not obey him and vote-
to force the Lecompton Constitution on the
people against their will he would takeotf ti.-
head of every friend I had in office."' It W
unnecessary to quote the alleged reply of tin?
Surely there must have been some asttka
in the report of the speech beca.ise I never

upon as the most favorable omen for support-
ing a Black Republican. There the question
will be what can be done in Texas against

Governor will favor submission ? It gives
the lie to Fillmore who declared that the

POVGLAS HIS TREACHERY MORE
In a speech recently delivered In Bangor
Me. by the Hon. Anson Eurlingame the gen-
tleman made the following remarkakle state-
ment: "Colfax Frank Blair and myself have had
frequent private interviews with Mr. Doug-
las in his own house. On those occasions Mr.
Douglas freely made use of expressions of the
deepest indignation against Southern fiction."
I also had a private interview with Mr.
Douglas (continued Mr. Burlingame) on the
occasion of his first visit to Boston. Mr.
Douglas made use f this language : "Bur-
lingame I am elected Senator for six years ;
I have got Joe Lane's head in a basket and
shall soon have Slidell's Bright'. and Fitch's.

States and it march westward embracing
the whole line of the Pari tic. from the British
possessions to Mexico struck me a the most
magnificent scheme ever conceived by the
human mind. This character of conver-ation
so frequently employed by Mr. Douglas with
those with whom he talked made the deepest
impression upon their mind enlisted them
in his behalf and changed in almost every
instance their opinion of the man. While it
is not surprising that the men who were in
the daily habit of hearing Mr. Douglas give
expression to his sentiments should have
given the advice they did to the Illinois Re-
publicans it is surprising that they should
now deny it. More remarkable is the fact
that none of the interviews I ever had with
Judge Douglas on the subject of his political
position were confidential. On the contrary
I always talked with him a a member of the
press he being fully aware of my position."
Let it be remembered the above letters
were read from the Clerk's desk in the House
of Representatives and Mr. Douglas never
denied the statement.
