The dismissal of Casey for offenses which
for months pa6t has been common talk the
country over, does not wash. Every one
asserts that there is another reason, and the
guesses as to what Grant's real purpose is
are as numerous as the wiseacres, black and
white, who throng the stairway of Mr Mul
lett's granite abomination. "Boss" Packard
thinks the situation, like the Dutchman's

the hope of the good time coming,'' when
he would dispense fat offices from the Gov

But all these speculations and suggestions

LETTER FROM TEXAS*
Texas Htate Fair—Morgan's Railroad and
Steamship 'Line—The Sugar-Bowl for
Greeley—Galveston in 1837 and in
1873—The Houston Fair.
[Special Correspondence of the Republican.]
Galveston, May 13,1872.
According to previous arrangements, I
left New Orleans Sunday morning
to visit the Texas State fair, now being
held in Houston. The morning was clear,
beautiful and refreshing, and as I turned to
bid the Crescent City a tond adieu the sad
ness of parting was partially overcome by
the quiet beauties that surrounded this
great centre of trade on a Sabbath morning.
Punctually at half-past seven Morgan's
ferryboat conveyed the large number of
passengers collected at the ferry landingi
opposite Jackson square, to the Morgan
Texas railroad depot in Algiers. And at
eight o'clock passengers were comfortably
seated in commodious cars, and under way
for Brashear City, where the elegant steam
ship City of Norfolk, Captain Hopkins, was
waiting to receive and convey them to Gal
We arrived at Brashear City, on Ber
wick's Bay, at twelve o'clock, and at half
past twelve the steamship cut loose from
her moorings, and was steaming through
this most placid arm of the sea direct for
the gulf and Galveston, where we arrived
at seven o'clock this Monday morning.
Everything on th6 Morgan line, under the
excellent management of Charles A. Whit
ney, Esq., moves like eloekwork. The rail
road is in connection with a fleet of fine
steamships, well officered and provided
with all the comforts of life, and renders
travel to Texas, by way ot New Orleans,
an unalloyed pleasure.
I met on the cars Mr. J. Y. Gilmore, editor
pf the Louisiana Sugar-Ha u l, one of the
very best of our country papers. He was
kind enough to furnish me with a copy o^
his last edition. The Sugar-Bowl is in
dependent in politics, but the last number
comeB out boldly for Greeley for President.
Mr. Gilmore says by some it is thought the
Democratic convention will ratify the
nomination of Sir. Greeley for the purpose
of defeating Grant. But Mr. Gilmore does
not think that probable, inasmuch as
Northern Democrats are always over
estimating their strength. He believes that
every Democratic vote oast for a regular
Democratic nominee in the South will
count for Grant, and, therefore, advises
every Conservative Southern man to vote
You may rest assured I was surprised to
find Galveston as much of a city as it is.
■When I saw it in 1837 there was but one
house upon the island: now it contains
many handsome houses, and claims, I am
told, to have.a poplation of 30,000. It cer
tainly possesses quite a business air at this
time, and if not washed away by storms or
influences over which the "Island City" can
have no control, it may at some future day
he a city of some magnitude.
I will take the hall-past one o'clock train
for Houston this afternoon, and will write
my next from there, and, perhaps, tell you
something about the fair. N. W.T.
Liberal Republican Organization.
At an adjourned meeting of Liberal Re
publicans, held m the Senate Chamber last
evening, the minutes of the previous meet
ing were adopted, embodying the following
resolutions and proceedings:
WHEREAS, The National Liberal Repub
lican Convention, lately held in the city of
Cincinnati, State of Ohio, have closed their
labors by the nomination of suitable Presi
dential candidates and the adoption of a
platform of principles, as well as an ad
dress to the people ot the United States,
who are appealed to, irrespective of past
politics, for the support of said movement;
Whereas, It is essential that steps should
be taken for the successful inauguration of
an organization of the friends of the Cin
cinnati movement in the State of Louisiana,
so as to cause the coalition of all friends of
general reform and constitutional govern
ment, as in opposition to the centralization
and military tendencies of the times, and
otherwise to bring hack the administration
of the government to the better days of the
republic; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Louisiana State Caucus
to the Cincinnati convention, now assem
bled, That the president appoint a provis
ional State central committee of fifteen,
who are empowered to organize the friends

electoral ticket and State officers; and fur
ther, the said committee he and it is hereby
instructed to immediately issue an address
to the people of the State, irrespective of
politics, stating the ylatform of our princi
ples, and asking co-operation of all ele
ments for a successful trinmph of the Cin
cinnati movement at the ensuing Presiden
The resolution was adopted with the fol.

and Governor Warmoth.
On motion, the meeting adjourned sine

P. E. Bechtel, Secretary.
Tlie Industrial Exposition—Eighth Day,
The attendance yesterday and last eve
ning was much improved, even from the
best days previously, and everybody
seemed to revel in enjoyment of the beau
tiful goods, the elegant display of paint
ings, and the exquisite music of Jaeger's
band. Fine Art Hall has, as we predicted
it would, become one of the most popular
resorts in town, and fashionable people go
there. Admission only twenty-five cents.
Musselmen do not regard banging a pun
ishment, death being to them a fatality,
bat mutilation equivalent to damnation,
Nearly every passer-by, should he keep
his ears open, will hear in his daily travels
through the street expressions and sayings
which show how deep or shallow is the
public mind at this time, and upon what
theme that mind is exercised.
"I made three bets in a hoop that Grant
would withdraw." The speaker was a
short, thick-set man, who might be either a
country merchant or a tax collector of one
of the suburban districts. His face showed
exposure to the sun and air, his dress told
of no fastidious tastes.
"In a hoop," repeated one of the party.
He then went on to say what was meant:
"S'pose the Democrats nominate. Old Mor
ton and the rest of that crowd will force
the withdrawal of Grant, for it won't
amount to a row of pins, and will not
please Greeley. S'pose they don't nomi
nate; Grant must be dropped for a man
stronger than Greeley." He was willing to
bet this way. As for the reporter, he
couldn't get at the bottom of the reasoning.
One by one the hearers lett the thick-set
man, and, nobody asking him to take a
drink, he slowly and sadly went away.
Probably the talk about the withdrawal of
Grant was heard on that day last week dis
cussed everywhere but in the papers, and
this ends one of the soundings.
"When I stab anybody with a codfish ball
he'll never git over it." This remark, so
deep in sarcasm, came from one of the
crowd of gamins who pile in on the heels of
a brace ot policemen with a prisoner in tow,
who crowd around the station door which
is usually shut to with a dull clang just as
the prisoner goes in, and who devote the
rest of their time to peeping in at the win
dow or through the prison bars with bs
much eagerness as if the poor prisoner never
was coming out again. He was satisfied
with that remark, and several ether and
younger of his persuasion 'whose sands of
life had scarcely began to run, and whose
chief capital consisted of time whereof they
had more than they knew what to do with
and hence did nothing, looked wonderingly
up at his audacity. The door was opened,
the "rats" scampered, and the bleeding
prisoner "cut all to pieces" one of the peep
ing gentry uttered in a horrified voice, was
left to his reflections of what a sad thing it
is for a man to he the "bottom dog in the
fight." This is also claimed as one of the
soundings, one of the representative scenes
which happen so often people get tired of
having them told at all.
"It was very strange he couldn't find me
to indorse that $10,000 check.'' This from a
jolly old gent, with an apple toddy face,
who quietly told of how he was obliged to
hand in his check for a settlement, and—
"Ha! ha! forgot to indorse it." The teller
wouldn't pay. The holder hunted the
drawer up high and low, and the more he
looked for him the greater grew his rage.
(His own story.) Having gained time, and
made the account good, in walked the jolly
old gent to his office, and (this being on the
next day)—"Indorse it," said he, "certainly.
What a strange oversight I didn't do it
when I handed it over!" He remarked sotto
voce that he was the busiest man on the day
in question ever was seen. This is another
of the soundings.
A babel of cries echo through the dusty
street. Sashes of upper stories are thrown
up, and heads over heads poked out. Front
doors are thrown open, and alley ways dis
gorge throngs of women and children, all
crying out, "Shame! shame!" A crowd of
boys and half grown men rush frantically
down the street, beating as they go along
the fences and dead walls with the stick
each lias in his hand. Far up the street, in
the midst of hootings and whoopings, the
crowd grows denser. Over all rises a pite
ous bleating. "What's the matter?" every
strange voice cries. "The goat catchers are
running off my goats."
" Nefer you mind, my dear." This came
from a shoemaker, who had rushed out of
his shop in apron and hammer, shaking the
latter violently. "Just wait till lection
time—den we fix dese fellers." This hap
pens about three times a week in every
neighborhood where goat's milk is "pro
iuieed," and is very ordinary unless, as one
of the bystanders remarked, " dey takes

This is one more of the soundings.
" I thought you didn't swear," remarked
a pale-faced and mild young man, who be
longed to that class of men who "part
their hair in the middle."
" Well, I know 'taint right," replied pro
fanity. The mild man bowed his head
meekly. " But yq£ see nothing relieves a
man so much. Sometimes it's like pulling
out an aching tooth." The mild man turned
up his eyes to the skylight of the car in a
manner which seemed to say "Cast not thy
pearls before swine."
"There's no vinegar and sweet oil in the
castor." This was said by one of the lunch
fiends, who, having swallowed his ration of
soup, hash, roast beef, turned his attention
to the salad. The reply of the host, who
stood grandly at the head of the table, was:
■•Don't keep vinegar and sweet oil here—
this is a coffeehouse." Then turning to one
of his steady customers, he said, "Unless
you check these fellows, they'll be asking
for a spring mattress and a Victoria bed."
Served him right.
It is our theory that more wisdom is ut
tered in daily conversation on the streets
in one hour, than is contained in all the
newspapers for a week. How to catoh
them "on the fly " is one of the lost arts.
The views of the people are always news^
but none "of us " ever get hold of them un
less they come through some one of the
prominent men and they lose by it. We
have more soundings on the book which
contain wisdom "chunks of it " and we now
get off into deep water.

The Senate Committee on Foreign Rela
tions held a meeting to-day, on the subject
of an additional article to the treaty of
Washington, but came to no conclusion.
The committee meets again to-morrow.
The opinion of the Senate has not yet de
veloped itself, although the measure, as an
administration proposition will, it is thought,
The President has sent a message to
Congress, advising federal regulations for
the protection of emigrants.
The House to-night passed a bill, fixing
the first Monday of November for choosing
electors for President and Vice President in
1872. in Louisiana ; also a bill for the relief
of the sureties of S. F. Marks, late post
master at New Orleans, providing for the
release of each surety on his paying an
aliquot part of the defalcation.
There seems to be a misapprehension in
some quarters respecting the precise char
acter of the question before the Senate with
reference to the treaty ot W'ashington.
Although inquiry has not resulted in obtain
ing full particulars on the subject, it can be
stated that the submission ot the new ar
ticle to the Senate is with a view of obtain
ing the opinion of that body upon it to guide
the President in his formal action in the ne
gotiation. In other words, it is not now
before the Senate for ratification.
This new article was originally submitted
to the United States by Great Britain in a
form somewhat different from that in which
it is now presented. She wanted the claims
for consequential damages altogether with
drawn, not being willing to admit the prin
ciple. On the other hand, while our gov
ernment did not press any moneyed consid
eration for such claims, it desired that the
question as to their admissibility should be
settled by the Geneva tribunal, and there
fore refused to withdraw them, believing
they were properly in the case.
Both parties thus maintaining their re
spective positions, the treaty Was, even last
week, in danger of failure, as it is known
Great Britain meditated withdrawing from
the arbitration, but by means of telegraphic
communication the two governments were
able to arrive at a satisfactory conclusion
on the differences in this way, namely:
Great Britain maintains that the claims for
consequential damages were not included
in the treaty, and therefore she doee not
admit the principle of asking such damages
received by a belligerent owing to the ab
sence of duo diligence in the performance
of neutral obligations.
The United States maintaining that the
claims for consequential damages were in
cluded in the treaty, hut accept the latter
declaration for a guide for our future con
duct, and, therefore, will not make any claim
before the Genva tribunal for consequential
damages—such is understood to he the sub
stance of the proposed new article—although
there has not been any general expression
as to the result. The opinion obtains that
the Senate will favorably advise the Pres
ident in the premises.
