General David Meriwether wns a promi

gallant soldier ot the i evolution. He
was a firm friend to T lionins Jeflcrion,
and enjoyed tltc great man's cMcom and
confidence, as the watch now tcMific?.
At the death of the general the watch

Some months ago, Mr. W. G. Chccney,

Tlio Austin SMtman Is bitter In it
denunciation; of the manager of the
Texas Press A-sociatlon for the exagge
rated reports sent all over the land in ref
erence to the damage done to Houston
and Galvcstondnring the storm. It ;ays
that the dispatches were made to tell the
world that the losses in Houston
amounted to a million of dollars, while
Galveston's calamity was measured by
five millions; tliat "the great loss and
great sum of siUIcrlng falls upon the
larmfcrsofthe wide district swept over
by the storm, and while great numbers
were drowned along the eoa.t, and
houses there were swept out to sea, the
greatest loss ot property occurred on cot
ton and sugar estates. Corn, ungntlicrcd.
was thrown down in the furrows ; own
cotton bolls were stripped of their silken
wealth, and sugar cauo roU where it
fell. Who must sufler? The planter Is
impoverished ; the laborer starves. Vil
lages along the coast were desolated, and
their inhabitants drowned ; hut the woes
of countless helpless negroes In liumblo
cabins on n thousand plantations are for
gotten while the telegraph flaunts indc-
cent exasperations of tlio woes of twal
cities that have lost comparatively noth
lug, before the. eyes ot n pitying world.
The manager of the Press Association for
Texas, whoever ho may be, should pun
ish, with remorseless fierceness, the con
duct of him who sent abroad the sense
less exaggerations of calamities that be
fell Houston and Galveston."

1 he lntcr-Statc levee convention met
last Saturday, the 2d Inst., in Vick'burg,
and was organized by Tobias Gibson, ot
New Orleans, secretary of the Lonl slan
levee convention. He read the circular
convening the convention, and said tliat
out of applications made to sixteen
States, through their governors, but one
answered, and he the governor of Arkan
sas. .Mississippi, Louisiana and JUssouri
were flic only States represented.
The following aro tho nor-
manant ofUcers who wero elected :
Louis V. Bogy, of Missouri, President ;
J. X. Bodlngcr, G. W.Sappington, 15. G.

Kalii Hint we ot the West should have our
share of protection and appropriations,
and tliat the contributions of Congress,
in the shape of appropriations, for the
Mississippi nave uecn very
meager in comparison to tho
appropriations for much smaller
streams in the Kast. Michigan
alone, he said, has an average appropria
tion of $500,000, while the West has to
struggle along with from one to two
hundred thousand dollars for tlio rich
Mississippi and its tributaries. Ho
thought the pnopio of the valley had
ltccn badly treated because they had not
been true to themselves, and had been
negligent and divided, while the Kast was
a unit and in full accord. The committee
on resolutions read the following, winch
