Ed. Free Press: Immigrnnts ar
riving in this section, who have passed
through Hays county and have viewed
the unapproachable San Marcos coun
try, all concur in pronouncing it among
the most enchanting lands their eyes
ever beheld. .
The reasons given for not making it
their permanent home, are the high
( rices asked for the laud and the scar
city of timber two unsurmountublc
objections to those of small means. I
have heard more than one express their
determination, when fortune smiled
and a sufficiency of this world's goods
had been secured, to return and secure
some of that goodly land.
The soil, timber and general lay of
the country here is different enough
from yuurs to be a thousand miles dis
The resinous, fragrant smell of your
cedar is never known here. There is
no buiT-oak or black walnut, excepting
where the latter has been planted,
elm, peean and hackberry are the prin
ciple kinds of timber on. the uplands.
The latter furnishes the bulk of the
fencing timber, and bears heavy crops
of acorn. Iu traveling, one is struck
with the sudden changes of the toil.
Often, in the distance of a few paces,
it changes from black waxy to deep
You are much in advance of this
country in respect to that important
cereal, wheat ; but since trying it here
for two years, and making good crops,
the people are preparing to plant more
largely of it. There is very little seed
here, and so, Mr. Editor, you need not
be surprised if we go to Egypt (the San
Marcos countiy) for it Those who
have a good, souod article could readi
'y convert it into the "root of all evil"
by bringing it down, or even by lcyiog
it be geoerally known thronah some
good medium like the Frik Press, or
tome other live piper.
Farmers here have lost heavily oa
cotton and are sick of it. Many of
them have followed that old "King"
so long that tbey are sot able aow to
pmrcbase seed wheat as eonseqaence,
fine fares, well fenced, caa be bad at t
very low rent, say three dollars per
sore, or for one fourth of the wheat
raised. Now, hero is a chanee for some
61 your enterprising young men, who
have the wheat and the animals to
plow It in. Ooe crop, such as was
raised this year, would pay the rent and
and buy the land upon which it was
raised. , ',. ,. . .
San Marcos has contributed further
toward our advancement in furnishing
us Berkshire pigs. There is a growiug
demand for that best of all breeds, and
the stringency of the times only, pre
vents us from taking all your surplus
at once. , If the desire becomes rouoh
greater oases of kleptomania may crop
out. Abu public benefactor, then, Mr,
Editor, you should Warn the fortunate
possessors to keep one eye on the sty.
