Special Correspondence, "
'Austin, March 10, 1873
f TIiq voxed printing quostion be
ing disposed of at last, after much
folly and oxponsivo delay, und tho
Galveston and Houston frolic over
and repontad of, tho august Legis
lature of Texas havo now settled
down to steady work, and, on the
whole, aro now doing vary well, or,
as thoy say after a certain intorost-
ing event in marriod lifo has hap
ponod, "us well as could bo oxpoct
od." No very important changes in
existing laws, bearing heavy on
the popple, have yet recoivod the
sanction of both Houses and the
Governor, but. sovoral good bills
are under headway, and thore is a
prospect, in tho fullnoss of time,
that tho prosont condition of things
will be much improved. You are
aware that tho bill repealing the
odious mill tut law, 1 which, was
rather too hastily and thoughtless
ly passed by the impationt '100111
bors, was vetoed by tho Governor.
To day a now bilj, very much im.
proving and modifying the old law,
passed tho1 House, and the chair
man of tho Military Committoo,
Anderson,' of MoLollnnd, Btated
that it Would rocoivo the Exooutivo
sanction. Tho Lord be praisod. if
not Davis. His Excellency, it is
said, got so happy nnd loving on
his Galveston trip, that ho promis
ed all sorts of friendly things, and
Insisted that, after all, if the peo
ple had only knowu , him, they
would have found out that ho was
vory much of their way of think
ing, i and that he diii not opprovo' of
a great deal that tho last Legisla
ture had dono. Well, ye shall soon
sco. Tho now election law will
soon be beforo him, which the radi
cal papers are calling on , hinr to
voto, and wo shall find out whothei1
tho GovornoV will livo up to his
champagne speoohos. Let us hope'
for the best.
I Strango to. say tho Amond
mout to the Constitution
which recoivod qvoiL 22,000 majori
ty, votes from tho poople of Texas,
has not yet becom6 a part of the
supreme law. It wus very prompt
ly passed by the Senate, two inem
bors only voting against it, but in
the Houso it' has inot with unex
pected opppsition from somo gon
llomen of high standing, and it yet
remains for final action. Tho proT
liminary voles taken, howovor, in
dicate a certainty of its udontion
by more than the constitutional mu-
jonty, whoa it can be reacliod iu
its regular ordor. ' It is assumed by
the opposcrs ot this amendment,
which' authorizes land grants in
aid of railroads, that tho pooplo did
nt know what tliey'were doing,
whoii they voted a they did. T.eso
gontlomuii aro mistakeu. Wlierov.
or tho matter was discussed and
fully explainod, the -voto for the
Amendment was tho largest. The
people desiroa to got, rid of thu
prosont rilroaobjlgttini by suV;
stituting lands for bonds, aud they
acted wisely. .,,..,,.,. , , ., t
Much surpriao has boon manifest- .
od at tho strango report made by
Ireland and others of the special '
aommittoo, appojntod in roferenoo
tp tho indebtedness of tbo State to
the International and Texas, Pacil
ie railroads. The general opinion .
seems to . be that tho report is not
nly bad law," woakly laid down, -but
by the cour.so recommended by ;
the committee, would bring dishon-1
or and serious injury to tho State.'
Railroad charters," where complied ,
with, are contracts within tho Con
stitution of thoUnitodStates.which
cannot be violatod at pleasure. Dut
think for a momout'of tho conso- 1
fjuoncosof repealing tho laws,grant
Ing aid to thoso railroads. '', .The '"
parties have gone on with "their
work at groat expense,' confiding ,
In the good faitl of thoStato, and ,
a largo immigration has followed,
and much capital has beeu invostod
along tho lino of the roads and in lots
Ini the towns through which they
pass, and a general activity and
posterity has attendod , in eonse-
quoneo, ho far, and now Judge Iro
laud and his learned frionds stop
up and say, "stop this,' it is all
wrong." But unless I greatly err,
the poople will bay, "go on, it is
working very well." If we .can got
those groat lines of railroad by
giving alternate sections of land,
thus fill up the Stato with, pooplo
and bring capital among us with
which factories may be built and '
Texas made the proud empire of
the South, let it be done; And by
all moans lot not the stain of ropa- .
diation bo put upon us.' From all
t can loam, this inconsiderate atid
llladvisod ropett willmoet with
little favor by the Legislature. I
think its originators already doop-'
ly Vogrot that it was ever made.
, About the last thing talked of
hero is the grossly unjust attaok
upon Ex-Governor Throokraorton
in ttie Houston Ago. In an arti
olo hoadod "Those Subsidies," his
positiou on tho subject of railroads,
is most shamefully misrepresented, ,
aud his connection with the cor
rupt legislation of the ; las t Legisla
ture insinuated, if , not directly
charged. Gov. Throckmorton neods
no vindication' foi the 'readers of
tho Dallas Herald they all know
him, trust him, and love him. The
evidonco of this is tho unanimous
support ho received from all , Nor-
thorn Texas at the Corsicann Con
voution for Congressman for tho '
State at largo, and where he would
havo been nominated but for com-
binations and trickery, which I am
Sorry to say too often attend con-
ventioDB. It is a little curious that
this attack upon Gifv. Throcknior-'
ton should appear 'in a paper,
avowedly edited by a man who
owes his liberation from the Bron-, .
ham Jail to the Governor's efforts
in this behalf. Dut what bottor
could be expected from Don Mo
Gary, whose paper js issued from '
the'radical Union office at Hons-,
ton, and whose ohiof glory consists
in bad whisky and worse slang.
