Fair and Festival. Sam. Houston All Right--A Patriotic
Speech from Him.
The charge that Gen. Houston made a
secession speech at Galveston is all false.
lie spoke in defiance of threats, and an eye
witness says :
About an bour before tbe time appointed
for his address, he appeared riding through
the principal streets of the city. When no
had alighted from bis carriage, he stood for
a few moments, fearlessly before tbe crowd,
to converse with some friends. I followed
him, with other gentlemen, into an adjoin
ing office. There were present about twen
ty most prominent secessionists, but friends
of tbe General. All united in entreating
him not to persist in speaking, when it
would inevitably be at the peril of bis life.
The brave mac, however, bad but one an
swer: "I have lived in vain, gentlemen, if
I cannot now speak wbat 1 think. If it bas
come to that, here, I may as well die now
as at any time."
A prominent secessionist, whose name is
.t il m t
conspicuous among me reoeis oi iexas,uen.
Nichols, during the conversation, put nu
merous questions to Houston, touching his
present position, and relative to certain re
marks he was reported to bave made. , He
asked Houston if he ever bad said that
Jeff. Davis was a perfidious traitor, and was
aiming at dictatorial powers. Turning to
him with a look of withering contempt, the
old General replied : "I did say so, and in
the presence of God, I think so; and I will
say what I think though the thunder blast
As wo started to go up to the place
whore Houston bad appointed to speak, I
heard a man in tho crowd ask this same
Gen. Nichols, "Well,-what did you get out
of the old man!" To which be replied,
"that all he got from him was that he was
going to say wbat he d d pleased."
Gen. Houston walked almost unattended
to the hall where he was going to speak, his
friends avoiding bira for fear of injury from
tbe excited crowd. On arriving there he
was told that it bad been closed against
bim by tbe owner, who leared its destruction
by the mob. Houston replied that be would
speak in tbe open air then, and walked fear
lessly tbrougb tbe crowd to an elevated bal
cony, and commenoed bis address without
tbe least trace of agitation or alarm risible
upon his countenance. After alluding to
the events which bad transpired since be
was last at Galveston, he boldly vindicated
bis own character from tbe calumnies which
had been heaped upon him by some of tbe
leading journals in Texas. He then char
acterized the secession of Texas aa iniauit-
ous and prejudicial in every way to her best
interests, lie said that though disunion
might be in the ascendant now, there was
a terrible reaction to come, wbicb would be
beard, and tbat he stood in a waiting atti
tude for that time to come.
What Mains Soldibrs Arc. The Ban

Butler's Reonnoisance near old Tyler's
Wo had a telegraph dispatch dated Fort
ress Mooroo 24th stating that Gen- Butler
had made a recoonoisance. Tho corres
pondent of the New York Tribune under
date 2 4 lb. says :
Yesterday was marked by a stirring in
cident. Gon. Butler, desiring to know the
preciso lay of tbe land about tbe Fortress,
concluded to pay a visit to the neighboring
village of Hampton. Col. Phelps' fine
regiment of Vorraonters were detailed for
the reconnoisaoce, and they took up tho
march across the dyke and bridge , lending
from the Fortress to the Hampton side of
the bay. Observing tbe movement, tbe
rebels rushed down to the bridge, and with
combustibles ready, prepared to set fire to
it. At this the advance of the Vermonters
took tbe double quick step, and before the
fire bad much headway were down on the
burning bridge and rebels. Tho latter Bed
precipitately, nnd tbe former was soon res
cued from destruction. A field-piece which
tho rebels had planted in the neighborhood,
was unceremoniously pitched into the Bay.
Gen Butlor pushed on and completed the
recoonoisance, to the infinite disgust of the
rebols, and, probably, of John Tyler in par
ticular, whose villa is not far distant. Tbe
ground for the permanent encampment -was
selected on the farm of Mr. Sogor, at the
end of the bridge, and to-day the first per
manent occupation of tbe sou of Virginia
was made by Capt. Carr's and Col. Phelps's
Regiments, who went into encampment
there to be followed by other troops as they
arrive. This will, no doubt, greatly highten
the disgust of the rebels. , ' .
How the Crisis Affects America Abroad.
Tho London Sunday Timos of tbe 12th
of May has the following :
A Parisian correspondent writes to say
tbe civil war news from tbe American con
tinent bas brought to Paris a large number
of Americana who were in Italy, Germany,
and other countries of the Old World.
These travelers are all proceeding home
ward as fast as possible. The resources of
most Americans abroad depend on com
merce; they therefore find themselves, at
the present moment, in a very unpleasant
position not knowing, in fact, what may
be tho results of the civil war as regards
financial interests. Nearly all Americans
who were living in Paris have already left
to look after their interests; or, it may be,
to take part in the conflict Of late yean
they bave been the best of customers to
hotel-keepers on the continent of Europe,
spending their money with a freedom which
once made the traveling Englishman so
popular abroad. Tbat reputation,however,
wo long since lost.
Parson Brownlow pitches into a Seces
sionist in his locality in the following live
ly style :
A CARD RATH I a PCRSONAL.
In my last issue, I found it necessary to
denounce Sperry, of the Register, at liar,
a contemptible puke, and tbe tool of scoun
drels. He baa since . chastiud mo with
four columns of newspaper abuse. This
authorizes tbe additional charge that he it
a coward, even if I were not in posioiaion of
tbe fact that one of our eitiseos flogged him
after night, in but recently.
