The San Antonio ' Herald ' suys "there
have been more depredations on the
frontierof Texas, more families outraged,
more murders committed, and more
hows driven away, by the Indians, dur
ing the year now closing, than lu any
other year since tho cupola of the Hint
inNsioii church on the San Antonio
greeted the rising sun." Tho (lavages
boldly venture within twenty miles of
large towns, ami camp quietly in tho
neighborhood, while lehuroly pursuing
their robberies. Why this statu of things
should be tdlowcd is perhaps partially ex
plained by the fact that they soil to thu
military traders, who, In turn, sell to the
government, thu very horses stolen from
thu Texaiu. If the Indian Incursions
khoul 1 ho broken up by a vlgorotu cam
paign, this profitable tralllc would he
lost and that, the Texan believe, id the
explanation of thu apathy of tho troops,
Tho ' Herald says:
lut what bothers and chagrins our
people most In the o outrages is, know
lug tho fact (hat theso fat, black, thiev
ing cut-throats tin tare monthly robbing
us of our stock, mt rderlng our citizens,
outraging our mo hers and daughters,
aro Mutually fed. a d clothed, and nour
ished upon thu got irnmcnt reservation;
and that their stoc . Is thus driven away
and sold by theso tdlaus often to gov
eminent agents an 1 employes, and that
u largo and prolltublo tradu has thus
sprung up. These Indians get back upon
their reservations In titno to draw their
monthly rations, and they tell theso
hor&es for six-shooters and government
arms and rimunlttou, and then they start
out on another excursion. These horses,
that they sell for n trltle, aro then sold
by whlto villlans for from fifty to ono
hundred and fifty dollars a head.
Tho Now York 'Times,' a mild Radio,

ground against the repeal of the law
creating tho income tax. Tho 'Times'
nays Grant is pledged to tho contluuo
ancooflt.and then proceeds to glvo itu
reasoiiH why it should bo. One of tho
'Times arguments is that wo aro all to
Hush of funds' and .that n Uttlo hurd
times, morally and financially would
do us all good. This Is rich, coming
upon the desolation of the war. Hard
times my bo needed In Now York to

TIIK TEXAS ELECTION.
A telegram from Govoruor Pease, dat
ed Austin, Texas, says: Davis, for Gov
ernor, Is -100 ahead, exclusive of tho coun
ties of Milan and Navarro, which, If al
lowed to voto, would elect Hamilton. It
appears Navarro did hot voto.on tho Hays
ofthe election, a? registration had not
been completed, and that In Milan tho
election was interrupted by disturbance,
and therefore not completed. General
Reynolds, it Is understood, has ordered
elections In thoso counties, but has refer
red tho question of counting the votes to
tho President. Tho latter, however, has
as yet received no communication from
General Reynolds on that subject.
Houston, Tkxah, Dec. ii3, 16G9.
Davis Is elected by 800 majority, ami
will bo Provisional Governor in a few
days. Milan and Navarro aro not to

It;has leaked out that the First Na

tected in sharp practices upon tho gov
ernment. The case was worked up moro
than a yerir ago by a detective, who dis
covered that this bank had been in tho
habit of paying as dividends in gold and
dodging payment of the tax botwecn the
value of gold and currency. During tho
past summer the case, which had hung
for some time, was again taken up, and
decided by forcing tho bank to pay back
tax, lines, penalties, &c, amounting to
more than $30,000. which they did with
out demur, only desiring that it slould
bo kept quiet. Tlio aggravating cireum'
stances of this case aro found in the im
mense amount of patronage thn bank
has received from tho government
whoso deposits there have amounted to
as hiL'helL'ht millions of dollars at a time;

A friend, Just roturnod from a visit to'
Oxford, Mississippi, brings us intelligence
of a most shocking murder, perpotratcd
at that place oh tho day of tho election
by tho Radical Deputy Sboriliand tho
Commissioner of Registration for that
county. Tho victim was Wm. Robert
Jones, a youth of about lOyoars ofuge,
son of a wealthy plantor, Mr. Daniel
Jones, of Oxford. Young Jones, who
was distinguished for his amiable dis
position and quiet demeanor, was speak

Deputy Shorlli; of tho., oouui

oneued a conversation with the negro.
Youug Jones told tho colored boy to pay
no attention to tho Commissioner, whoso
uamo was Wyatt, that "ho was u Radi

named Jones, told Wyatt, to shoot him.
Wyatt Instantly drew his pistol and fir
