This is a subject to which the sub
stantial men of odp country aro
paying too little attention. It is
trno that renl osfalo agents, and
othor activo men ongnged in lunded
intoroBts, have proparod many
valuablo and intorosling tttatistics
rolativo to the rosourccB and ad
vantages of our State, and bavo
beon industrious in having them
circulated among tho inhabitants of
othor States and countries, and that
those publications have been of in
calculable bonofit to tho prosperity
of Texus by inducing the lido of
immigration hither, and in awolling
the volume of its population with a
rapidity unprecedented in tho his
tory of any State in tho Union.
But men, such ns we need in bring
ing to the surface the best intcrosts
of our country, roojiire something
more than mero financial argument
to convinco them of tho importance
of becoming identified with us.
There aro social and moral features
in every community which attract
men just us much as do tho admir
able advantages of tho soil, the
genial suns and soft winds which
make up tho material and physical
objocts which are indispensublo to
business success. We havo all theso
attractions among us in a flourish
ing and well developed Btato, but
strangers who corao horo can judgo
but littlo rospoting thorn bo
causo tboy are Btrangers,' And bo
causo their attention is not called
to theso sublime family quostions
nufflciontly often, by thoso with
whom tboy aro brought in contact.
The idea certainly prevails in tho
oldor Statos that society in Texas is
oxcoodingly crude. That churches
and school bousos nro scarco, and
that protection to life and property,
deponda as much upon tho musclo
and nervo of the individual as up
on tho due execution of the law.
Wearo in rocoipt of lotters almost
daily from inon in othor States mak
ing ;cncuirie8 with roforenco to
these peculiar characteristics, and
are inducod to )give place in our
columns to these remarks by the
hopo that tboy will suggest to those
who aro engaged in educating tho
ignorant tho importance of faith
fully representing all our advant
ages. Lot not tho cloud piercing
steeples eroctod by pioneer hands
to tho worship of the Mostlligh re
main silont in attesting the moral
worth of tboir builders and sup
porters, "but- rather lot their silvery
evidence tako' its place upon tho
tosoin of tbe'wiads und proclaim
as it flouts eastward, tho fact that
Toxans are a God serving people.
Introduco the school jhouses and
tho libraries, with their willing ton
gues to toll their own story of how
letters aro loved by young and old
and how eagor tho frqits of knowl
edge are sought and dovourcd by
our enlightened and advancod so
ciety. Our resources for wealth are
all known now, let the bns relief of
the picture bo addod, and the world
will give ua its tributos of the brav
est mon and fairest women to aid,
with handa and smilos, the accom
plishment of our fnture groatnoss.

. , OUR CITY. ,
Yesterday, strolling leisurely,
and wo might say ponsivoly, over
the beautiful suburbs that environ
us, drawing from nature the bet
tor life its beauties unceasingly
teach, wo could but think how lav
ish (md beon tho dispensation of
Providence in fashioning our city
in tholovoliest of woulds thatoould
allure tho eye or attract tho most
cultivated tasto. Nature hap done
her part, and dono it well ; it re
mains now for man, "the noblest
work of God," to beautify with tho
adornments that civilization and
cultivation suggost, the plots that
in thoir crude and unimproved con
dition offer . now a faithful earn
est of tho greater grandeur and
higher lovolinoss yet to como.
Who among us but believes in our
future?, Who doubts to-day that
Dallas will bo the Empire City of
tho North tho dopot where shall
bo concentrated tho untold wealth
from our neighboring counties a
very "Atlanta" in .permanency
and prosperity, no loss than in
growth ? Properly directed en
irot is all we want; wo nood
buildings pleasing to the taste and
attractive to tho oyo something
propoBsosBing in nppoaranco, that
will suggest to the visitor not only
rofinomont but permanency, and
that will cauBO him to inquire into
the "causes of things," and neces
sarily to make deductions, that
will insure tho investment of capi
tal and tho consequent develop
ment of resources.
In evon tho oldost established
placos somo changes are always ac
ceptable, and improvement ever
beara with it its own reward. We
live in an ago of progress, and we
must nood koop up with thotimos,in
this iuolatod instanco at least, devi

of tho ancient Horace, lot us look
