The Castroville Quill has passed into the

to beware of gambling in any of its phases.
Wasson's life in every other respect is said to
have been above reproach, but when he gave
way to the allurements of this vice, he fell.
The Detroit Free.Fres, in the following item
touches upon the political tendencies of the
times, anent the Dorsey trial :
"Paymaster Wasson, who will apparently
have to go to prison for making free with
United States funds, mutt believe that affairs'
are curiously conducted in this world. He is
not only dismissed from the army, but he is
sentenced to 18 months of hard labor in the
penitentiary. His offense was using public
money to pay gambling debts money which
he intended to repay, and which he believed
he could repay by the next day. Or, as he
described it,it was "a forced temporary loan.
The mistake he made was, first, in not being
in the civil service, and second, in not 'doing
anything for "the grand old party." He
ought to have "carried" something Indi
ana, or something of that sort. It is doubtful
if he ever "carried" so much as his own ward
Had he consulted these preliminaries to his
raid on the United Slates Treasury, he might
have stolen tens of thousands, instead of a few
hundred, and never fashed his head about
returning them. He could have taken them
"for keeps," and never offered to ma.se them
good. He might have been exposed to a
trill ; but that happened to him as it was. In
stead, however, of being convicted and sen
tenced to 18 months of hard labor, he would
have been acquitted by a jury suffering from
the delirium tremen, and half of Washington
would have got drunk over his good luck."
"It begins to look as though property was
reaching a ficticious value in San Antonio. It
is stated that $60,000 was refused for a lot
50x100 feet in a desirable business location.
One thousand dollars a front foot is consid
ered a high price for properly in much more
pretentious cities than San Antonio."
Property in San Antonio has taken an up
ward tendency for the past three or four years,
and the limit has not been reached, as will be !
seen by the above, which is true. There are of w,lich ls said to Ue a Par,y bf l,le name of

they have not yet been able to get a foot hold

our own capitalists should invest some of their
surplus wealth in new business and dwelling

The Advantages of Concrete.
The non-porosity of concrete wall is now
urged with much plausibility by medical writers
as a point in their favor for house walls. Not
only does brick absorb moisture in wet weather,
but it if now known to absorb animal gases as
well, thus presenting a condition by all means
to be kept in mind in the buildincr of hospitals

Another attempt is being made to get up
a boom in Confedrrate bonds. For some time
past Baltimore stock brokers have been adver
tising for Confederate State bonds. The
movement in these bonds started some three
years ago, and since that time the purchases
have been very lar e, one firm alone handling
about $30,000,000 of them, lialtimore has
been the headquarters for their purchase, and
Europe the destioation of the bonds, orders
Coming from a large London firm. When the
excitement first began, the bonds, which were
considered worthless, brought $1 per $1,000
The price subsenuentlv advanced, and has
gone up as high as $15 per $1,000, though
now they are from $6 to $8 per $1,000 for 6,
7 and 8 per cent, bonds. The bonds are
somewhat scarce now, though some davs
$100,030 will change hands, and other days
not $100. The dealing' are altogether in
coupon bonds, with the 1865 or prior coupons
on. One Hallimnre dealer, who makes the
Confederate bonds a specialty, has offers from
t ic South of bonds in lots ranging from $100,
