Friends and relatives, I give you my ex

traveled thiough. Texas is the finest Slate
I ever saw; spent 20 months out there, and
saw two crops made there. It yields more
grain to tlie acre than auy State I was ever
111. It yields from lo to id bushels of wheat
to the acre; from ."ill to 75 bushels of oals:
from V to iHj bushels of corn; friini li quarters
ol a bale to a bale and a half of cotlon per
acre; aud from ou to 7- bushels of barley:
also a tun and a half of millet per acre, anil
oue hundred bushels f iotaloes. There is
no State iu the Union that cau beat it for a
good garden; their vegetables excel any 1
ever saw, aud the best, thing about it, is
w ith less labor than in Tennessee. You can
raise any amouut ol stock without any corn

also, raise all kinds of fowls. It does not
take half the labor there to make a crop, or
any busiuess you undertake, as it, does in
Tennessee. Cau buy the land uuimproved

its power. The lish ol the sea are dependent

Thus far we have spoken of juirv water,
such as we obtain by the chemical union ol
lt-s elements, or by Hie condensation of its
vapor. As we find il iu nature flowing in

Whence comes the water of our rivers,

finally we trace it to a spring, bursting
from some hillside, or Ho,ving from tlie
crevice of some overhaugina; rock. Let us
follow, iu imagination al least, tiie narrow
opening whence comes the flowing spring,
and we shall find it like the river, gathering
