A BIG LAND CLAIM.
In 183G Mrs. Harrington,
owning the league of land where
.Brenham stands, made a deed
of gitt to 200 acres of land to her
danghteryLydia Lee, and .Marga
ret Lee, her grand daughter.
One half of the tract was spec
ified to be held in trust by Ab
ner Lee for his daughter Mar
garet, and that he was to have
a life interest in it, and at his
death was to revert to her. In
1843, when Texas was a Ee
public, Ab. Lee petitioned the
Probate Court to order a parti
tion of the land. The Court
appointed Commissioners and
the partition was made; the east
one half of the tract .adjoining
the Walker league, being set
apart for the old lady, and the
west half towards the courthouse
for Margaret. As soon as the
land was divided, Mrs. "Lee,
joined by her husband, execut
ed n deed to B. R. Thomas for
100 acres, her share. Ab. Lee,
guardian for his minor daugh
ter, then petitioned the Probate
Court, "supported by the affida
vits of three good and lawful
citizens," as the proceedings
read, for an order of Bale of the
100 acres belonging to his. daugh
ter. The Court granted the
petition after complying to all
the forms of the law, and it was
sold at the courthouse door to
the highest bidder for cash in
hand. The clerk of the Court
then made the deed to the pur
chaser, and it has been in the
hands of his legal assignees ever
Ab. Loo died a few weeks ago
and now the attorneys for Mar
garet, now grown with t-cvcral
children, claims the 100 acre
tract on the ground that the title
did not lie in her until after her
father's death, and that the pro
ceedings ot the Probato Court
were illegal aud theroforo void.
This is the hitch. Did tho
Conrt have power to order the
sale for Margaret's share? - The
tract is 16G6 varas long, nearly
a railo, but only 337J wide. It
corners a little over a mile from
the courthouse, near the Inde
pendence road, N. W. from the
city. Tho east lino runs near
tho colored school house at
Camptown, and the South-west
corner is iu the middle of the
colored grave yard not far
from the oil works. The most
of the residents on tho tract are
industrious colored men, who
have built comfortable bonscn,
"but the majority hold warranty
deeds from responsible old citi
zens, who will have to defend
The wiiolo tract lies about
half a mile East and Northeast
of the courthouse. Mrs. Stamp's
old homestead is near the "West
line, and all of Wiley Hubert's
laud close to the East lino.
Theodore Stamps, Kavanaugh a
place, Butler's and Baker's
houses, about ten acres of the
West side of Hinschbcrg'; field,
and all the houses laying with
in the 337f varas mentioned aio
in the claim, heing about forty
dctendonts. It also takes about
20 acres belonging to J. D.
Giddings on tbe North side of
the Independence road. Hirsch
berg holds a warranty deed from
C. E. Brtedlove, and several
others from prominent mem
bers of tho barof this county,
and they will doubtless contest
the claim to the best of their
ability. We will aw it further
movements. F. W. Chandler
of Austin, is the c'aimanta at
torney. Gen. Banks thinks tho ac
tion of President Hayes in re
gard to tbe South Carolina and
Louisiana controversies not in-'
consistent with the interests of
the Republican party; that tho
course of events had placed the
party in relation to those States
in a wrong position, and it was
therefore necessary to withdraw
from the attitnde ill which the
Tee Austin Leader 'says the
fonr prisoners brought in from
Webb county last Thursday are

Every one of any reflection
would be apt to come to the
conclusion, after bestowing a
little thought on the suhjeet,
that the being, end and aim ot
life was. happiness, even if he
had not. been told so by the old
English writer. Happiness is
one thiug coveted by all the
wise and the simple, the learn
ed and the ignorant. It is one
of the leading objects of every
man's and of every woman's
ambition. When it is conceded
that this a common platform on
which all mankind stand, is it
not inexpieably strange that we
are so parsimonius about extend
ing a little aid to the happiues
of each other.?
A homily on what constitutes
happiness, is not what we start
ed to write About. But we
must say that many men aye
and women too kick out of
their paths almost daily that
which is capable of conferring
rational gratification. Amid
the active duties, of life, there
is scarcely a day passes in which
every one with the least pai-ri-fice,
either by a kind word'or a small
act, to the advancement or grat
ificationand consequent by the
happiness of others.
If a p.irty were to start on
the overland route, to C.iliforni.i

than throw impediment, iu the

he be considered a despicable
churl, who would fail to contri
bute as much as an encouraging-
"word to his weary and perhaps
overburdened fellow travelbr?
Well, we are all travelling, if
not to California, at any rate to
some goal, a pacific coast let lis
hope, and often need the aid
and comfort of an encouraging
word and a kind net. These
coat the giver nothing. And

THE COTTON TAX.
Wc alluded some time ago
to the fine opening there was
for doing an act of justice to
the South by the refunding of
this nnjnst and illegal tax. It
this money is refunded, and it
certainly should be, if justice is
meted out, the sum that wonld
come to Texas would he at least
seventeen million dollars. The
tax was colle -ted on the crops
of 1865, 'G6, '07 and '68. The
tax for two of these years was
15.00 a bale. For. the remaining
two years, the tax was ten dol
laisabale. For the four years
named, the crop of Texas would
each year average 350,000 baies,
and the average tax would be
twelve dol'ar3 and a half per
bale. This would make the
snng little sum of 517,500,000.
As it is not likely that this
sum can ever reach the pock
ets of those from whom it was
filched, and to whom it right
fully belongs, it placed ir the
State treasury, it would at a
bound, relieve the over-taxed
people from a burden under
which they are groaning, and
provide such a school fund as
would place the means ot edu
cation iu the bands of every
child, white or black, iu the
We hope that Southern Con

Love and Suicide. A Ger
man named T, Weiss, in the em
ploy of a farmer named Ger
loft, residing three miles east
of Cypress, proposed marriage
to his employer's daughter, to
whom he hud been paying atten
tion, for some time, and was re
jected. "Let every thing go to
the devil." was his reckless re
ply. Early in the morning
Miss Gerlolf wis awakened by
a fearful blow struck her by
Weiss' with a piece of iron, A
struggle ensued, and Weiss af
tnr leaving her for dead, went
to his room above stairs. Miss
G. recovered aud went to a
neighbor's for assistance. Sev
eral men went to the house,
where they found Weibs in his
bed, saturated with blood, where
he had attempted suicide by
first shooting himself in the fore
head with a revolver, and as
that did not finish the job, he
made two cuts at his throat.
He w-as not dead, but it was
impossible, for him to survive.
Miss Geriofi's wounds are not
fatal, and she will speedily re
cover. Her fither and mother
were absent at Houston.

alluded to this once before, but
there is no harm to mention it
again, especially as we see in
the papers that there will be
many exhibitors from abroad,
who will show fine stock, among
other things. We know that
many of our people will attend,
and we know some in our coun
ty and in Austin, who have
stock worth exhibiting, and
which would stand a chance. for
a blue ribbon. There will be
an immense concourse of peo
ple assembled from every direc
tion, and visitors may confident
