The Chicago Time says : "Texas pa
pm estimate that more than $2,000,000
wart of property has been stolen from
that SUte by Mexican robbers. The
Texas papers, however, do not attempt
to give the amount of property stolen
Iran Mexico by the Texan;. And the
Texans are by no means petty thieves.''
Before the war It was considered by
planters living along the Clblllo,8n An
tonio, Gtuukloupc, and other streams In
Western Texas, a legitimate business to
make their tall and spring raids into Mex
ico. During those seasons of the year the
grass would be fresh and water plentiful.
Tenor fifteen of theso fellows, well i
armeu, would cross uie wo uranuc at
different points, busy themselves In Mex
ico for a few days, aad cither come out
with some old scnor's gold or cattle, or
with lessened numbers, and return to
their ranches or plantations, nnd enter
upon the christian duties of attending
church and personating the charac
ters of good citizens. A history of some
of those raids would have shown many a
gray-haired old Mexican weeping over
fee ashes of his hacienda, or the corpse
of a son or the ruin of a cherished
daughter. Our great war swept away
many ot those christian thieves, and left
the field open to such men as Cortina and
his Mexican robbers.
Yesterday wc received a note, In a very
large .envelope, written in a cramped, lit
tle hand, on tinted paper, and pcrftimed
with no signature modestly asking
"Do you know the author of 'Beautiful
Snow?' " A note of that character- docs
not require a responsible signature but
we would like to catch the fellow, or the
fellow's sister-in-law, or anybody connec
ted with his ftunlly, who wrote It. Of
course wo know who wrote "Beau
tlfUl Snow." Henry Faxon, whose ef
fervescent writings were as rich and ex
onerating as the wine of Monte Bcni,
Was the individual who, by failure to at
tach his name to this creation or his,
caused the editorial world to be bored, to
an unlimited degree, by questions In ref
erence to snow. We kuow an actor, a
dramatic and literary character, now
rivaling Jefferson in "Rip Van Winkle"
oesides Deing engaged in the laudable
work of prosecuting Boucicault named
Bobert McWadc who told us confiden
tially that be saw the original draft of the
poem, in the handwriting ot Henry Fax
on, and that lie was for a
time engaged with that gentleman on
the Buffalo Critic, and was Mr. Faxon's
most intimate friend, and that Henry
Faxon always alluded to it as his poem.
Thlsgentleman's promising career ended,
we believe, when the war was progress
ing, and from that time forward we on
date editor' tribulations over tint
subject. We don't know who wrote "In

of Mortals be Proud," but would like to

rsvajrlng, warfare being waged on the
fair, but unfortunate isle, that the elec
tion of this patriot will make stronger
and more hopeful the cause of the Cu
bans against Valmaseda's Spanish hire
lings. For seven years Spoturno has
been a veteran In the ranks of the patri

system of warfare that laid in

Later in the day the following letter
from the above well-known citizen of
Cairo, arrived by mail, giving the partic

Johu II. Obcrljr, :
Dkar Sir: Knowing of your Intimate
acquaintance with the deceased. Dr. Con
don, and of bis extensive acquaintance in
Cairo and Southern Illinois, is why I
took the liberty of telegraphing you. On
last evening i t imrsday) the doctor was
called to the bedside of a young lady pa

the genial, whole-souled doctor. Hogs

Hoping 1 have not trespassed,

The sudden death of a gentleman us
highly esteemed as was Doctor Condon
will be regretted by the people ot Anna
and surrounding country, for ho was
widely known and respected by the best
citizens of Union county. In Cairo ho
had very many friends who will deplore
his death, while they will never forget
the generous and charitable impulses that
marked his irreproachable life.
We also publish a letter from Mr. W.
N. Butler, a former resident and lawyer
of Cairo, relative to Doctor Condon's
Anna, Ills., Sept. 3rd, 1870.
Ed. Cairo Bulletin : This morning
about six o'clock tho body of Dr. S. S.
Condon was found in a path leading from
one ot our back streets. He had been to
visit a patient at Mr. Mullen's, and left
the house to return home about 8:30 last
evening. As he was found not more than
fifty yards from the house he must have
died soon after leaving Mr. Mullen's, and
his body laid there nil night. His
face was badly distlirurcd by cats. Cor
oner Ives was notified, lit had tho body
removed to the residence of Mrs. Condon
and there held an Inquest. The Jury re
turned a verdict ot "Death by heart dis

A religious revival lias been going on

thinks that special prayers of exceptional
earnestness should be offered for Atlanta
editors, in the hope ot weaning them
from their fighting propensities. The
high art of courtesy has nothing in Its
vocabulary that would denominate these
two colonels as fighting editors. The
gaunt skeleton of tho duello is being
quietly laid away. A Texas lawyer re

to the calaboose amid the exciting yells

The shouts ol dellancc from the crowd

They surrounded the building and made
several attempts to break tho door, all
the while yelling savage vengeance on the
city and Its authorities. The Marshal,
with Ills deputized olllcers, then raided
the crowd, when a hand-to-hand bloody
conflict ensued, during which rocks nnd
clubs were freely used; bloody
heads aud bloody shirts were seen failing
