The Government should delay no longir to
take possession of this fine State, and rulim c
its thousands of Union men, who would hail
with joy the appearance of tho Stnrs atxl

Texas ever since the war bi'iran, and I know
well that there is a large Union sentiment

Her extenlvo coast is almost entirely de

expense of tint blockading licet and prevent
the rebels from rcceivicc supnlics throuiili
