'' Dullus county and the Induce inonls it offors to those Hooking a homo in Texas. Tho first and most important itom to a farmer, when aslced to niuko his homo in a country is, the soil, its nature, its capacity for pro ducing j both a to quality, and variety. ,. t v.. , : , I Tho grcator portion of Dallas county, is'.blaclc waxy land,' with soil from two. to tweuty foot deep, ",hat never will . wear out; this to many persons in other states, will sound very Btrungo, but it is true, bo far as anyone Las over been able to tasl ; tifieen Bueessive crops of whout havo boon ruisod in thru countv on " tho" Banio' pioiie of land, aud : t ho las,t was as good us tho first. Lands that have been in cultivation Jbr twenty-five yeurB are as praductivo now as thoy have over boon, and suoh thing ds manuring lands is un known in this county. This county wiJl produco ono bale of cotton to lbs acre, corn from forty to sixty bushels, wheutfrom twenty to forty bushels, oats from forty to sixty bushels, barley fifty bushels, miletthreo tons, Hungarian grass two tons,8orgum eighty-five galons. Fof ponchtfs this county cun't bo beat; apples, poars, plums, appri cots, and every, variety of grapes, as well us vegetables of overy des cription grow finoly, and good dates, rigs and bananas hare been grown Jhero, 1 also ; castor beans have never beon tried to any ex tent; but from tha specimens that we have soon, wo are satisfied that they could bo grown successfully. WOOD AND WATER. Dallas county is watered by the Trinity" rivor running noarly through tho' centre, and tbo West, East and Elm forks of Trinity, Whitorock, . Row lea and muddy creeks, Spring crook, Mountain creek, Bear crook, , Long creek, North and South Mesquito creeks, PiyiolIick6ry,Toiri-mild,Pive-mite, Gapovine and Dtmton creeks, bo side a number of other . small streams. Noth withstanding thla is a prairio county ; it ha moro wood and that better distributed than tho counties north or west of us. 1 . railuoads. , .;.r - Tbe Houston & Texas Central Railroad now completed to Red River, runs through the centre of this county from north to south, tho" 'Texas' Pacifie iruversei tjio couuty from east to west, and cross es tho Control at the city of Dallas. The Dallas and Wichita Railroud when built, will run from Dullus north-west, the Dallas Si Palistine Railroad southeast, and should tho St. Louis i Springfield & Rio del Norte road bo built, as in all prob lftiUtyJtitilliiVHl.travjrff(i,thi8 county from northeast to tbe south, west. It will thus be teen that railroad facilities, thin any other oounty in the Stuto, and, that her prospects in that line aro vory flut tering. There could be but one thing to provent immigrants from sbtlling Lore, and that : would be the price of lands. , A poor man comes a long with but a thousand or two dollars in his pooket, he finds himself in the center of tho - ... GREAT WHEAT BEQIOM of Texas, and seos growing to, per faction, not only wheat, but cotton, corn and ovorything else that will grow in , a Boini-tropical climate; he sees here the thriving ycang ' 1 ' ' CITt OF DALLAS,. T' ' of 7,006 inhabitants the commer cial center of Northorn Texas, and ho says to himself, "This is too good a country for a poor roan 'tis not for mo to sottlo down in this garden Bpot of tho world, I must "go west I go i'wost I . go wost I" Stop, Btranger, you aro rnistakon ; supposo you do 'go wost,' you have not como all the way to Toxas to settle . down on a rooky hill of course you want valley land, and what do you . suppose it , will cost you? Valley laud in Johnson coun ty, oue hundred miles west of this placo, has sold within the last month for $10 per aero. You can buy tho best land in JJullaa county and as much', of it as you want at lrom 5J5. to J7 50 per aero, Por further information on this subject, soo our advertising col umns To nil who contomptato moving to Texas we would suy, "give us a call before purchasing olsowhere."

Tbe Southern Land Agenoy was to haTeeommiislona ranging from ten to fifteen per cent., aud it wa to establish and maintain agencies U Europe .ae well aa America, the emigrants being mainly kept iu view. ' Tbia contract was subsf ouentlv ratified in New York, whither both Gen. Bohenek . and Gen. Fremont went for that purpose. It waa a mere Drcicct. whioh. It .W been eatimated would have yielded about $2,000,000 Irre spective of oy additional grant from Coa uieis, The bill subsequently failed In tbe Senate.
