BRKNUAM, TEXAS, July 25,1870.
MB. EDITOR :-Tou will no doubt be
surprised when you receive this letter,
but the sinoere desire I have to see all
my friends prosperous and happy indu?
ces me to send you this communica?
My theme will be Texas, as a promise
land, for laborers of all classes, and es?
pecially the farmer. Any one who
knows anything of the vast resources
and advantages of Texas will not deny
that it ollera the means of affluence and
wealth, with less labor, and more cer?
tainly to the poor man, than any othei
State in the Union. I will assert thal
there are fresh and untouohed cot tot
lands in Texas that would make a<
muoh cotton as all the other cotton States
lier thousands ef cattle, winter ant
summer, keep fat without having foot
or shelter provided for them.
To the poor man who desires a com?
petency for his family, without such io
cessant toil, and the opportunity fo
mental improvement for himself am
family, I would say Texas is the couti
try to briug about such desirable re?
Let any one contemplate the condi
tion of thousands of emigrants, wh
land annually, poverty-stricken, upo
our shores, aud compare their conditio
with that of those who preceded them t
Texas, ten or fifteen years ago, wh
were equally destitute. What a oon
'trust is presented I Such a oompariso
amounts to a demonstration of the ad
vantages of this State, and cannot fa
to convince the most incredulous.
Germans who have beon here ten o
fifteen years (and landed without
dollar in their pookets) are now lan
owners to a considerable extent, with
fair prospect of becoming wealthy in
The farmer can work every moat
in the year, without interruption fro
heat or cold. Lands should bo broke
up thoroughly in January and Decet
bor, February being considered thc tin
to plant oom and many other seed
Qom is srju'timca cut down by tl
the frost, and sometimes has to be r
planted. Cotton ii generally plant
in Mar oh.
Texas is subjeot to fower extrem
of heat and cold than the Northc
States, and a great many of the Sout
ern States. We have a good bree
from the Gulf all through the summi
and I don't think you can Bud a mc
healthy aud delightful climate upon t
globo. The superior salubrity of o
climate aud the mild and uniform tei
perature does not superinduce disea
as it doos in more Northern latitud
It would be well to notice here'what t
called Texas "northers." These get
rally spring up alter warra and suit,
weather, and the chango is so suddt
the cold is more sensibly and disagrei
bly felt. They are novcr unhcaltl
being only unpleasant while they la
(which is seldom longer than two
three days. We have the sumo wit
in South Carolina, ouly they come
more suddenly and blow moic violen
Manures and fertilizers are not
quired and not even thought of. So
of tho lands have bren under cult;
tion at least thirty or thirtyfivo yea
and wc are assured by old farmers tl
they have not shown tho least sign
exhaustion, but produce as weil as
first. The scarcity of timber for fenci
and building purposes is ono reas
why our farmers confine themselves
bottom lands near water sources.
I will not deny that there are ext
sive regions of unproductive lands
Texas. And how could it ba expect
to bc otherwise in a country ombrac
so many degrees of latitude and lon
ludo. The seasons hero nra alni
twice as long as those of tho North
States, and crops genorally mat
siput six weeks earlier. This gi
great advantages in the markets.
Mr. Editor, if a man does nut hov
e oiufortublc home alter a lew years lu
in. Texas, it in his own fault.
SAMUEL H. FRASER
THU POW BB OP ALCOHOL
AFFECT TUB rai NU.
This is undeniably great-but is it
weal or for wo ?
Now, the well ascertained effect
alcohol, wheo taken in any consider
quantity, is to stimulate the irs tell
especially so far as the imaginative
ideal powers arc eoncornod ; to def
tho will, tho governing und control
power ; to pervert and depress the m
emotions, and to excite and iuten
tho animal passions- and desires.
Ja a" larger doso, th? intellect is
ApioQft\j p!ritrie?y tX* wi? and th?;
moral emotions ar? extinct, ?od th? an?
imal passions and desire??re in the as?
cendant. With ? larger dosa (till, the
distorted remnant of the intellect may
hardly ba recognised, while the animal
passion? reign paramount, in unnatural
excess. Tb? .?ril desire of Just or re?
venge often remains, while the paralysed
body refuses to minister io its gratifica?
tion. A pitiablo ?pactado indeedl Verily,
it ls no stretch of language to say that
drunkenness placea man on ? lovel with
the brute I The language falls short of
truth. He digs beneath the deep a
lower deep, and in this the brutified man
wilfully lies down and wallows. Look
over, lean over, that stile, where a pig
lies wallowing in the mire-and a voioe
faint and feeble, and far off, as if it
came from some dim and remote world
within your lost soul, will cry, that of
the two beasts, that bristly one, a-grunt
in sensual sleep, is aa a physical, moral
and intellectual being, superior to you
-dram drinker, drunkard, dotard and
Suoh are undeniably the effects of
aleohol in considerable and large doses.
Taken in smaller quantity, the effects are
less marked, but have still the tame ten?
dency. There is moral as well as men?
tal loss : injury as to what the man ts,
with serious peril to tohat he ought to be.
Moreover, let it be remembered that the
effect accumulates by frequent repeti?
tion, and that no dose of Aloohol, how?
ever small, can be taken without acting
on the brain, and consequently on the
mind, more or less.
The ultimate result of such actings
we have seen to be, in extreme cases,
delirium, fatuity, insanity; mental dis?
ease. In the more protracted and chronic
cases, intellectual perversion, auimal
ascendency, moral abasement; mentai
degradation and decay.
The habit of using any intoxicating
liquor, tends to inflame all that is de?
praved and earthly, and to extinguish
all that is spiritual and holy. It is a
poison to the soul, as really as to the
body. It is a truth, that alcohol is "a
mother of sins."
A man begins fairly, and oontinues
respectable for a time. At first his in?
dulgences are only convivial, and within
moderate bounds. Tboso bounds, how?
ever, are by and by transgressed-once
and again. And after no long time, it
too frequently happens that the love of,
and dependence on, the unnatural
stimulus have become too strong to
wait for the social opportunity and
social restraint. The drink is taken for
its own sake, and secretly. The power
of the drag is gone ; and tho downward
movement is precipitate. There is a
difference between convivial intemper?
ance, and that solitary sotti^hncss which
waits neither for company nor invitation.
But thc one we arc afraid commonly
ends in the other ; and this lust is the
basest degradation to which the faculties
and dignity of human nature can be
reduced. "Look not then on thc wine
when it is red, when it giveth his color
in the cup, when it ino vc th itself aright
At tho last, it biteth liken serpent and
stingeth like au adder."
- It is an error to suppose that tho
air near the floor contains moro carbonic
acid than air near the ceiling. Owing
to the law of the diffusion of the gases,
tho reverse is generally the case; if it
were otherwise, every cradle would be a
