The Dallas real estate irarket atill firmly holds Its own a steady demand at a healthy lucroaso lu values. The transfers yesterday amounted to $11, 9!)fi, and as sprlnsr comes the sales will be Increased. To the obsorvor of tho dally published reports troni the dead record iu the county clerk's of fice it will bo seen that there Is an In crease lu trauslers of Oak Cliff prop erty which Indicate a substantial growth of the city iu that direction. This is not tho season of the year favorablo for much building, but nevertheless there is consldorablo buildiug aud improvement going on iu Oak Cliff, (south, Kast and North Dallas, and a score of vory expeusive aud imposing structures In courso of construction in and near tho buslne; centre. Sprlug is tho season ot build ing booms, and next spring will wit' ncs the greatest demand for home real cstato and building kuowu in the growth of Dallas. This great liquor trusts that weroiu- tercstcd iu the defeat of prohibition are just about as inuoh interested in tho abolition of tho tax on liquors, am then they will be joined lu this tight by tho tobacco manufacturers who al so are ' powerful ' corporations, aud a tremondous effort will be made to ro- duco the tax on tbeso articles ol mer chandise. There is yet another influ ence which will be thrown in thoir fa vor ; and that is, the protectionists they hopo by the abolition of this in ternal revenue tax to removo part of tho necessity for tariff reduction. With twenty millions of internal reve nue tax abolished tbe protectionists would claim that tho tariff as it is neo essary for the support of tho govern mont.

So tho capilol of Texas Is at last happy, A baso ball club as an advertisement To-.Momtow is national Tlmnk'giv lug Day. Let all bo thankful for tbe blessings of good health, hnppiuoss, prosperity, aud lifc itself; ami iu the preparation for the day of homo en joymcnt and thanksgiving, don't for get those who have not been so fortu nate. Tho man should liavo most cause to fcol truly thankful who can sit down to his good diunor conscious of having done something to contrib uto to the enjoyment and thankfulness ot others that tiny. In the matter of the Mexican Mis siou Texas gets left again. It is relia bly reported that C. E. Mooro, consul general to Mexico is to bo promoted to the position ot Minister. Moore is from Missouri, aud the only difficulty in his way is his divided stato dolcga tioi, half of whom think Moore not well enough known for so high a posi tion. Counery, late of the New York World, who was secretory of legation and is now acting Minister is also fa vorably named in this connection. The proposition to abolish the in ternal revenue tax is a twiu slater to the protective tariff robbery. The advocates of the two measures want to take off tho tax on liquors and to bacco, and put it on blankets, cloth ing, ironware, crockery, and other necessaries. Of course, tho cousumer pays the tax. The advocate of the first proposition who pretends to be iu fa vor ot tariff reform, will bear watch ing, for all of them will hardly prove iucero representatives of the ma ses. A San Antonio jury has assumed power which was never intended a jury sbonld exercise. The, Sunday law has been do glared a law uuconst tutlonal and by lury iu a magistrate! court at that. Scholiz had openly and frequently violated the law, and on trial did not deny it, but the jury in a few minutes returned a verdict of "not guilty" on the plea of nucousti tuuality of the law. This result w'l invite a general disregard of the law in that city. This is certainly a novel decisionfrora such an authority. And it is safe to say, will not be sustained by the conrta Tlio Connor GangBogus Insu rance Conipanies--Au In spection Expected. Austin, Tex., Nov. 22.

THE PILGRIMS' THANKSGIVING. Bn It Was Observed b Dlrvwtlan Uovernor Hrmdforrl. The Pilgrim Fathers landed at Ply mouth, as we all know, on Monday, Dec. 21, 16.20. Under favorable auspices the first har vest wan (fathered. With hearts of Joy they aeon red the bountiful crop ot Indian corn which had ripened in the fierce heata ml August and the warm haze of Septem ber. Aa they looked on the heaped up tores the drat fruit of their toil in the sew land their hearts swelled with thankfulness that the lord had so merci fully eared for them, and that, though aorely smitten with pestilence, they were now blessed with health, peace and free dom from the dread of famine. Mindful of the Providence to whom those blessing were dne (those stern, bold men were very devotional), Governor Bradford proclaimed a solemn Thanksgiving- feast, and ordered that preparations sbonld. be made for celebrating it with slioh festivities as were In their pi Fonr nii'ii were dlv.iatehed into the v UMhont wllil fowl, and though the hod lwen seanly throughout the an the quartet of aportaiiieii returned a staggering under their burden of ti. r.rene and pigeons aulllelent to pit tliu ciiIIpo settlement for n whole There was rare labor done, by the Puritan dnniea, pluc king and (Ireaaii iratiio, iNitindlng corn and baking it ting out mid polishing the tin and table Hervlc-OH brought from Kiighti Holland, and scrubbing tile w trencliPi'M t hut served 1 he poorer pll In lieu of tin or pewter.

The sermon ot Klder Brewster was ap propriate to tho occasion. Never was he known to preach a better discourse or a shorter one, though it would lie thought long enough now, particularly if tho steam of rousting Mcluagris gallopavo tickled the nostrils of preacher and con gregation, as it did them. It was a TlintikHnlvIng dinner, nnd no mistake nloi.t. it. To be sure the tables were of the rudest, and there was not much display, nor were there tho many little delicacies that can often be found now on Thanksgiving tables. But the turkey was there in all his glory of browned skin, rich gravies and palatable stuflling, and no were a number of other birds, great and small, roasted and boiled and baked over the embers. There was corn bread and hominy nnd puddings, and several litt In nlcknncks such as skillful housewives could make up of the mate rials at hand. Nor were the tables alto gether wanting In display. Some families had brought a few household relics from their Knglish homes, and these were set out to do honor to I lie day of rejoicing. The dinner over, the pilgrims turned to the homes I hey hnd left. As the day closed and darkness camo creeping in from the nine woods around Plymouth, the settlers trod once more, in fancy, the green lanes of Kngland or the busy streets of Ijeydeu. They snnfj the psalms and songs that had been sung around their English tiresides, und mingled memories of the past with thankfulness for the pres ent and Ikmw for I lie future. Hark! An Intuitu about, rollowed by challenge from one of the guard. A charp rattle of a drum, and every mnn grasped his firelock and rushed out. in alarm. Nearly a hundred savages were pouring into the village with shouts and cries. But there waa no occasion for alarm. It eras Massasoit and his braves coming in to thank the white men for their assistance and to share their festivi ties. They brought with them five deer and a good supply of other game, as their contribution to the feast. So the thanksgiving feasting was con- tinned another day. By daybreak Hie fires were again set going and the work of roasting, broiling aud boiling was re sumed. This time venison was added to the turkey. While tho feast was preparing the In dians performed their dances, startling tiie white niea aud fiighU-umg tlio youu, folks and women with their wild yells and fierce gestures. When they rested ( apt Blandish ordered out hia soldiers in full armor and put them through their mili tary exercises, winding up with the dis charge of a volley from their muskets, and a salute from the great cannon on the hill top and the little cannon before the governor's door. The crash of the mus ketry and the roar of the ordnance terri fied the savages, and they begged the "great captain" that he would not thun der again, lest he should kill them all. On the third day the feasting was re sumed, the Indian hunters going out before daybreak and returning early with game for the day's feast. A couucil fire was built, and around it speeches were made and new pledges of friendship ex changed. Then, with great ceremony, Massasoit tmik leave of the governor, his friend, the ;i-eat captain, and the other chief men of the town. Standish, with the troop of musketeers, esortetl the In dians short distance from the settlement and gave them a parting salute. Thus, with prayer and feasting, with godly psalms and Indian dances, with joyous songs, roaring artillery and Eng lish shouts mingling cheerily with Indian whoops, was celebrated the first New England Thanksgiving.
