THK NTROLLIV( TIIEATRICAI.M The lover? of the drama arc familiar with f ie play of the strolling theatrical company endeavoring to make an engiifroment with a hard ininayr. A long train of bedraggling Hpinstyrn and seedy men, with cracked voices, come ehaiubling upon the stage and imperi ously demand an engagement. The crusty managvr, anxiotm to drive a cheap bargan, fctreuis indisposed to make an engagement. Arm-in-arm the tattered host strut from the stage, the unkempt hair waving in the breeze and the shoes run down at the heel, stamping the floor. After a short parley, the mendi cants return and clamor for an engagement. The manager demands some evidence of their powers for acting and ability for drawing a full houxe, and then the fun commences in good earnest. The men show how loud they cm rant, and how gracefully they can die, ami the sdatterns demonstrate alternately the eaae with which they can make the tran sit from fighting to fainting. The southern men, who are endeavoring to make an en g:gement with Manager Hayes at Washing ton, remind us of the strolling theatrical com pany. Hampton, Gordon, Lamar, Hill, But ler, Eu.-itii and Gibson walk arm-in-arm into the White House and desire to make an en gag-eiiium. u. . . . ., i - move the troops from South Carolina and Louisiana. Manager Hayes demands pledges, something to show that the people of these States are worthy of the liberties enjoyed in other States. Then the southern speakers illustrate their powers in both farce and trvgedy. They lay their hands upon their hearts and assure the inter estea manager that it he should remove the troops the negroes will not be oppressed; that the " poor black man " will be protected in all his rights. Then another of the stroll ing company comes forward, with all the jfravity of the youth at a country debating society, and swears that even J. Midi-son Wells and Eliza I'inkston will not be ostracised from the se lect society they adorn. Another im parts to Manager Hayes the startling infor mation that it is strange he should insist on such pledges in view of the fact that since carpetbiigLsm has been extinguished in Geor gia, Virginia, North Carolina, Alabama, Texas and Arkansas, there has been no op- prrrtiiirui- Tha vary foot that Hayoo demands these pledges suggests a falsehood against Ih-j southern people. It is a waving of the bloody si.irt a repetition of the old plunder t!i r the southern people are dis- all the southern States under rule, the colored population :; i:appier, more contented and prosperous t :;m they are in Louisiana, ruled by Radicals, and hich rule Hayes is so reluctant to relin quish. This talk about pledges is a repetition of the stale slanders of the late canvass. The Democrats of Louisiana und South Carolina, in their platforms, have given ail the pledges which Hayes can possibly demand. The con duct of the southern States liberated from Radical rule shows that no pledges are neces sary to protect the negro in his rights, and southern men in playing the part of the stroll ing theatrical company before Hayes are enacting a contemptible farce. The Presi dent will find that the efibrt to make his ad ministration respectable without incurring the enmity of the Radicals will be a failure. AV'hile he is demanding pledges of Hampton and Xicholls, thereby intimating that the people who elected them are not to be trust ed, the people are demanding that, instead of requiring pledges of others, he should ttiind by his own pledge to remove the troops and give home-rule to the southern States. change has been occasioned ly a cowardly failure to redeem the promise that wen: vol untarily made to the country. Hut the npol- ovists for the fraudulent President say that he cannot inaugurate 'the political millenni um in ten minutes." and that he has selected another eight-by-seven com-nission. What will a commission do about these matters af ter it has investigated them? It can make no report of facta not known already, and for which the government has paid for printing half a dozen time. The reaction in the south against Hayes is universal. Our people were ready to forget the infamous fraud by which he came into power, and applauded what they regarded as an honest effort to give peace and prosperity to the country. But they are now convinced that nothing good can come from a President spawned upon the country by the foul workings of J. Madison Wells and Eliza Pinksion. ( OAVERSIUXN TO THE JEW ISH FAITH. The Iadartloai of Christiana t be Per mitted la the Katare The EtTeet or Mixed Marrlaeea. TUEATTORXEY.tEXr.RALWlIlP OP 3IIMMIMMIPPL. Mississippi elects a full corps of State offi cers in November. A number of distin guished gentlemen are already spoken of for the various offices to be filled, and among them we are glad to learn that Hon. J. G. Hall, jr., of Panola county, is prominently mentioned in connection with the Democratic nomination for attorney-general of the State. Although less than thirty years of age, Mr. Hall has alreadv won a hiirh position as a lawyer and a politician in our sister State. In 1871 he was the candidate of his party for dibtrict attorney of his district, but despite a brilliant can vass was defeated lr te over whelming negro vole which then was solidly united. Two years lat?r, in conjunction with his intimate friend and compeer, Captain Taylor, he did much to redeem his county from the grasp of Radicalism; that county being the first of the heavy negro counties of the State to throw off the yoke of the plun derers. In 1875, he was elected to the State legislature, after a canvass unsurpassed in the State for brilliancy and the intensity of the strucrifle. In the legislature Mr. Hall took high rank, serving with much distinc tion on the judiciary and other important committees. He is a thorough lawyer, an earnest, impressive and chaste speaker, and a gentleman of pure and spotless integrity. There are doubtless other aspirants equally meritorious, but should the choice of the Democracy fall on Mr. Hall the party will have an able champion, and his election will insure to the State a most competent officer. loyal. Deni itic HKMOVAL OF THE TKOOPH. When James Buchanan was elected Presi dent of the United States, in 18o6, D. M. Leatherman, of this city, announced himself ;in applicant for the Belgium mission. The papers teemed with his peculiar fitness for the position. Loquacious old women, de murely rocking in the chimney corner, would peep above the optical lenses that reposed like two full moons across the bridges of their harp and venerable noses, and gravely dis cuss iwigium and its minuter plenipotenti ary envoy extraordmary. tiarrulous men, in mixing their accustomed grog, would de,scant about nothing but Belgium and the new embassador. For three months this was the absorbing topic of conversation. That brilliant, but erratic genius, William T. llas- to the theme so unprofitable, and meet ing his friend Leatherman on the street, he gravely looked him in the face and sternly said: "I have just received a letter from Belgium, and they say, if you are coming, why in the devil don't you come along?" The eople of the south have heard enough auoui naves s promises oi wnai ne is going to do, and they un; everywhere asking him "If you intend to remove the troops, why in the deuce don t you do it.-1 A brief experi ment has demonstrated that it is utterly im possible to make an untrammeled patriot out of the corrupt product of J. Madison Wells's returning Vioard. Before he was declared el -ted to the Presidency, Hayes promised. through Matthews and Foster, to remove the troops, and fci give the southern SUtes home rule, for which the Democrats have contend ed for ten years. In his inaugural address he emph.usizetl these pledges, and instead of redeeming them, he prefers to listen to the inquiry: "If you intend to remove the troops, why violate the cotitution and the sanctity of an oath by delay?" Suspense is ruinous to the businet-s of the two prostrate States, South Carolina and Louisiana. Hesitation only complicates the troubles. It has em-Ix-ld'-ned Packard, an 1 he is preparing to fight. The inaugural address struck terror to Packard, for he regarded it as pronouncing h;s doom, and would have quietly yielded up his usurpe.1 power on the sixth of March. Bat procrastination has inspired him with hope, and he now boldly and defiantly pro claims that he "intends to defend, to the last extremity, hi title to the office to which he Lis been declared elected." The sit uation is ii,ore unpromising than ii was Uiree weeks ago, and Wenater Beck on Hayes's Mungllns; Policy. Cincinnati Enquirer (interview): Tour correspondent then asked Mr. Beck what he thought 'of the present attitude of the ad- m'nisrrsiHnn townrrl rU- - ne proposed commission. Mr. rsecu said tnat the President had made a great mislake, if he iu earnest, in nis original declaration, in not promptly withdrawing the troops from Louisiana and South Carolina. He could have done so immediately after the confirmation of i his cabinet without senou3 opposition. 11 is temporizing policy since has emboldened and strengthened the radical wing of his party, demoralized the conservative element, and shaken i he confidence of the country in his sincerity and courage. It is, however, stop ped whatever ot dnlt he expected trom any clement ot the 1 democratic party. Ihe com mission cannot possibly develop any facta on which-to have executive' action not already known, and it has become a settled principle, thoucrh a stranire one. that men put on com missions find the facte to be what the interest of their party requires, the side having the majority always having the report in their favor. The real object, Mr. Beck said, in his opinion, was to retain if possible control of the United States senate, which the admin istration was sure to lose in the next congress. unless it obtained, in some way, the Louisiana senators. An administration with both houses Tagainst it, as President Johnson had, is a helpless thing. Hence the effort now to prevent that result, which had no good for the people of Louisiana. Raehel and de Hn&8et. New Vork World: Apropun of Paul de Musset's biography of his brother Alfred, they are telling a very pretty story of the poet and .Mile, nachel, who, thirty years ago, was the great actress of Paris, and perhaps of the world. One dav she invited Alfred de Mn set to dine with her, and the rest of the guests were all notably wealthy men. Rachel wore a very beautiful and valuable ring which was noticed and vastly admired. Gentlemen, said she, suddenly, "seeing that you admire the ring so mnch, I shall now offer it for sale by auction. What will you give for it ? In a moment the bids run up as high as three thousand francs. But De Musset was silent. "And you, my poet," said the actress, "what will you give?" "I will give my heart," was the r.p'y. "Ihe ring is yours, was the reply; nor could she afterward, when the jest seemed to have gone far enough, be persuaded to take it back again. She said: 'By Jove, but it is no lest, iou have given me your heart, and I would not return li ior a nunarea inousana crowns, i ou can not take it back." London I'all Mall flazrttr: An announce ment has been published to the effect that the Jewish ecclesiastical authorities, the Beth Din, will in future permit the induction of christians and others into the Jewish faith. It is among the things not generally known that from the admission of the Jews in Eng land during the commonwealth to the pres ent time not one Gentile of either sex has been received into the Anglo-Jewish commu nity by English rabbis or Jewish ministers resident in this country. Englishmen have, of course, embraced Judaic doctrines from time to time; but conversion does not neces sarily mean submission to Jewish rites. Every year, however, a considerable number of christian women have gone over to Hol land. Belgium or France, and have there re nounced Christianity in favor of the more an cient faith, the rabbis in these countries being under no obligation to refuse to induct prose lytes. The converts are generally young women, and in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred they adopt Judaism for matrimonial reasons. Not many Jews care to marry out of their pale at all, and when they do they naturally wish their wives to be formally re ceived into the Jewish church. The reasons why the spiritual chiefs of the Jewish community have de clined up till now to receive proselytes can be traced to the time of the commonwealth, when it was imagined by the ignorant and the bigoted that the Jews sought admission to this country in order to gain adherents to their religion. To banish this delusion the rabbis of the time engaged themselves, under heavy penalties, to refuse admission to the vnagouux of any ohriet?"-".) And Uiio mlo, enacted by Israelites for Israelites, has re mained in force from the time of Menaiseh Ben Israel to that of Rev. Dr. Adler. That the Jews in our own day do not wish to begin the business of conversion we may be well assured. The truth is that some of the most influential members of the Hebrew commu nity have, during the last three or four years, taken unto themselves christian wives; some noble Jewesses have made themseelves happy with gentile husbands ; and it happens that Jews rarely maintain the rites and obliga tions of their faith after they have married out of it. The readiness of Dr. Adler and his coadjutors, therefore, to save intending proselytes the expense and trouble of a jour ney to Holland or Belgium may be traced to mixed marriages. The first ceremony of in duction will be looked forward to with some interest, especially if it be of a public char acter, as is the case in America; and it is probable that, ere many weens nave passeu, Dr. Adler will have the opportunity of wel coming a Guerista. Immorality in Art on the Stage. New York Herald: In the lower places ot public amusement vulgarity is expected, and until society becomes much better than it is it will be impossible to prevent it. But there "si no reason whv it should be tolerated in theaters and opera houses attended by intel ligent and polite classes. Yet, under the pretext ot amusintr the public, some artists corrupt it, and this is especially the case with opera bouffe, in which vice is as attractive as genius can make it. Art in such operas as La Titnbald d'Araent and Generieve de Bra bant" in poisoned by obscenity, like splendid robes tainted with the plague. This flavor of pestilence adds no charm to either the music or singing, and great composers, such as Alozart, Kossini, Donizetti and Weber have despised its hurtful help. Shakespeare, notwithstanding the coarseness in his plays, which belongs more to the time than to the man: Farauhar. with all his broadness: Sheridan, with all his love for intrigue, and abject slave of vice. There was a manliness even in their errors. But when the beauty ot music, the splendor of scenery, the fascinations ot literature, the power ot acting and the glory ot gemu3 are used to make sm appear angenc tne spectacle is as ooious as ii we should see the Graces and the Muses har nessed to a garbage cart. Tweed to be Released. New York Times: Tweed will probably be released next week somewhat earlier than we had anticipated, but in obvious harmony with the prevailing policy of compounding with thieves. We understand that the diffi culties in the way of pressing the criminal prosecutions against Tweed are alleged by eminent Inwverq to ho mciirieTaLdo. and oa tkio civU prosecutions can never extract from Tweed f o much as he is ready to give up, it is supposed to be at once shrewd and profit able to close with this offer of restitution. We trust that after all the ring thieves have been finally set at liberty, a complete stat. -ment will be made by the counsel for the pros ecution. After adding to these the probable or ascertained cost of the defense, the public will be in a position to appreciate how very profitable burglary on a large scale can be made for the noble profession of law. Tak ing into account the immoral effect of this compromise, it will also be made sufficiently obvious at how enormous a cost the people have recovered a very insignificant portion of their stolen money. On the whole, the Tam- lrnny thieves got oft rather more easy uian the whisky thieves, and the good natured public may lairly expect to be rewarded m the not distant future by a new crop of en terprising plunderers, ready to claim unlimit ed absolution by a very Limited amount of restitution. capes without supervisi - If a lady desires that he should see her U "tried on" in the "salle des lumieres," gus is lighted in full daylight and he look over the process ot fat ting, which is, however, performed by women THE CASE OP THE LIKES, Too 31 any KlTbrts Made Reeently to Pat a w Pace on Certain lees ana Crimes as Old as the World Vlleaess Hast be Slade Odioas. the veil New York Tribune: We are not in habit, as the readers of the Tribune know, of calling attention to social foul spots or ouairaures unless we can help to clean them. But there are times when it is wise to follow the nolicv of the Roman fathers, who showed their slaves in all the beastliness of drunkenness to their children. Sensible, rlean-minded men and women who live de cently and happily in their homes, and whose souls are not wrung by nungenngs ior amni ties, need not. and we are pretty sure, will not read the details of the last murder case in Chicaco. But the husband and wife who feel uneasy immoral longings in them for a vamie something outside ot their daily work, and who begin to find mysterious indications of that 8omethinur in somebody who not their husband or wife, would do well to swallow this nasty dose? and let it work their cure. The truth is we have had a great deal too many efforts of late years among educated people to put a new face on certain vices and crimes aa old as the world. Not only in novels, but in philosophi cal essays, stealing is elevated into klepto mania, the mysteries of moral insanity a pot ogize for murder, and unchastity and adul tery, under some other names, are made to mell more sweet. The pro press of a famous trial a year ago showed now this hafit cfj idcou&iiia; mtoiu uu iacis in numan nature had grown common in a class where we would have least expected it. The mass of cheap fiction devoured by our boys and girls, if they are not carefully watched, and more than half the poetry with which young people Hood the gapers, convey the same ideas. Married men nd "spiritual strength" in women who are not their wives; literateure, preachers and poets, brimming and dripping over with "love of the beautiful creatdon'of God," vent their ecstacies in indiscriminate kissing of the fem inine particles of it; there is a wholesale ex change of "healthy magnetisms," "intellec tual sympathies, and spiritual experiences in a certain class, and that class, unfortu nately, is not an ignorant nor uncultured one. fresently a divorce suit or a bullet, as in the case of these wretched Pikes, shows the horrible reality in these nameless "raptures and visions, and the actors and the public give them at last their true names. Now it is time that the old names were fastened on them and kept there, When David looked upon Uriah's wife, when John riunyan painted christians temptations, or when the old school of divines used, to preach the thunders of the law to us forty Al -11 H 1 years ago, mere was no lnisiaxe in me quali ty of these matters. No talk then of "pure Platonic sympathy ot a man tor his neisrh bor's wife, or of "healthy magnetisms." He was told that "his veins were set on fire from hell," that the lust of the flesh had hold of him. A man, especially a preacher, was not likely to rejoice in "a mysterious affinity" as a "development of his inner life;" he fought or yielded to it as an animal passion. Now, human nature has not altered one whit in its conditions since then; we can change the names of its inexorable qualities, but we do not change their cause or their effects. We may try to disguise weaknesses or vices of the body by pretending that they are as pirations of the soul; but this Pike case, vile as it is, shows us how far we are right, and how long we can deceive ourselves or the world.

All agree "that the severe weather of March has not destroyed the eggs to any appreciable extent, and that with the advent of warmer weather the hatching process will go forward as in former yeara. It is hoped that the heavy rains of the early spring will serve to drown out a few billions of the new-fledged 'hoppers, but the farmers have very wisely determined to rely chiefly upon their own exertions to mitigate, and if possible avert the ravages of the locust pest. n many localities in Kansas, .Nebraska.

Chicago Times: The resurrection of the old Whig party is a hobby which is likely to lead Hayes into all sorts of impracticable fol lies. His Washington organ goes into double leaded hysterics over the idea, and proposes, as a starting point for its realization, that the Hayesite Republicans unite upon some Old Line Whig.now in congress wearing the Demo cratic collar, for speaker. It is supposed that enough of the adorers of that ill-odored re miniscence would abandon the Democracy to make this scheme a success. Ihe thing might be practicable but for one little diffi culty. As soon as Mr. Hayes begins to gather his old Whigs under his wing, the old Demo crats, who form the most venomous and virile section of the Republican party, would inevit ably break out of the coop and go to roost elsewhere. It is to be regretted that Mr. Hayes has not adhered to the promises of the firbt days of his administration. He has with arreat formality and impressiveness de clared his adherence to the one-term prin ciple. If he does not want a re-election, he should be willing to leave the intrigues of parties to those who are ambitious of place. and confine his efforts to the promotion of the general welfare, without regard to factions or sections. If he does desire a re-election, the surest way to tret it would be to administer the government as if he expected to draw his last mortal breath on the fourth of March, 1881. and cherished no ambition but to leave a fair name as President of the whole coun try, not of a mere faction, behind him. In the present temper of the people, wearied and disgusted with the perpetual prostitution of the public service to the promotion of per sonal itiiiOiLioii, it miulit IMS as uitncult lor Hayes to escape re-election at the end of an unselfish, unpartisan administration as it cer tainly will be for him to obtain it after devot ing four years to an attempt to depopulate the old Whig grave-yard andsetupitsnckety skeletons before the people as expositors of a new policy.

Sutter, United States consul at Aca pnia), are as follows: Previous to the occupa tion of the town by the forces of Diaz, under the command ot Ueneral Jimenez, (ieneral Alvarez, who held the place in the interest ol Lerdo, levied contributions on the citizens to obtain funds to carry on the contest against lhaz, and among those who paid the amount assessed was Henry K as tan, an American cit izen, who owned considerable Dronertv. in cluding a plantation, in the vicinity. About this time Consul Sutter's house was entered one night by Mexicans, with a view of rob bery. Sutter shot at and wounded the robber. Sutter was examined and dis charged according to due process of law. When Jimenez entered the city, this same Mexican turned up as one of his adherents, together with a large proportion of the rab ble element, and there is an impression that his private enmity may have had some weight in the subsequent proceedings against Sutter, more particularly as many threats were ut tered against him by the rough element. Jimenez at once began to levy forced contii butions and seized a lot of cattle belonging to Kastan, and the latter lodged a protest with Sutter as the American representative, and then, fearing personal trouble, he left the city on the morning of the fifth instant. Sut ter sent a protest to Jimenez, receiving a re- E!y to the eff ect that he had better be careful ow he protested against or interfered with the action of the Mexican authorities, or he would get into trouble. A few hours after Sutter was surrounded on the street by sol diers and marched to prison. Subsequently, Jimenez apparently concluded that he had carried the thing too far, and informed Sut ter that on making his request in the proper form he might be liberated. Sutter replied tliat he would accept his liberty if offered!, but declined to request it. and still remained in jail on the departure of the steamer. In a letter to his brother here, he says he has sent a letter to the United States consul-general at the City of Mexico, representing the state of affairs, but intimates a doubt as to whether it will reach its destination, as all his corre spondence passes under the eyes of his jailers. Rent and I'nbent. Chicago Tribune: In New York, since Parson Buckley let himself out in regard to women preachers, the Methodist Monday clerical gathering has excluded reporters, and thereby provoked the following from the .New lork Herald: Ihe Methodists have reached a point when it becomes necessary to sit with closed doors. The reason is two fold : First they say so many foolish things, and in the excitement of debate use so many forcible and expressive adjectives that the shorthand reporter is compelled to expurgate. throwing out certain Shakespearian phrases wmcn tne public might not understand; and, second tuey say so many runny things that. unless something desperate were done, the people might regard them as the special cor respondents of a comic newspaper, who had met to compare notes and by the friction of rival humor to concoct side-splitting jokes, Their newspaper organ says that ths reason why thev sit with closed doors is that the minds of the clergy are unbent on Monday, and they don't know exactly what they may say unuer me excitement oi extempore speech. We never heard before that the unbent mind of a Methodist minister was so combustible as to be dangerous, but, of course, if it is, let tne aoors be closed and the explosion be con fined as much as possible." It will perhaps be remembered that the Methodist brethren in this city closed their doors for awhile after an unexpurgated report was published in one ot the papers, wherein a doctor of divinity illustrated the limitations upon Divine Provi dence by remarking that "Even the Almighty could not make a iour-year-oid colt in a min ute.

New York Herald: A little after three o'clock yesterday afternoon a dishevelled, frenzied woman rushed out of the hallway of No. 146 Houston street, and ran to a drug store in the neighborhood. One hand cov ered her left cheek, but traces of a hideous scar underneath were seen, and as she moved along she seemed to be suffering great pain. The physician to whom she hastened saw at once that the unhappy creature's face had been saturated with vitriol, which had been roughly rubbed into the flesh, and the viru lent fluid had eaten its way almost to the bone. He rendered what assistance he could, and the woman sought the residence of some friends, from whom the story of her mishap reached the stationhouse. Heloise Pickard is her name, and seven years ago she was married to Alfred Pickard, by whom she bore a child. He had once been kind and attentive, but in time he became quarrelsome, suspicious, and at times abu sive. Nine months ago he abandoned her and went to France, taking their child with him, and since that she had heard nothing of him. Driven by necessity to work for her living, she sought employment, and was en gaged in a place in Fourth avenue, where her husband came the other day and inquired for her. He was given her address, went to her house, and has been living there since. He seemed, however, to have in no way bettered his temper during his absence, and at once began to accuse her of imaginary infidelities, and even to threaten her lite. Ihis alarmed her, and she was afraid to take her rest while he was near her. Yesterday, however, she fell asleep on two chairs, and was awakened by feeling her hands roughly grasped. She tned to start up, but found that her husband had fastened her to the chairs. She attempted to cry aloud, but he seized a large butcher-knife, and with the point at her breast, told her that any word above a breath would be the signal for him to strike. He then took fromhe stove a red-hot poker, and standing over her, he cried : "Your cursed handsome face has done too much harm already. I'll see that it does no more." Then, as if suddenly recollecting nimseit, he cast the poker aside, muttering, "No, they might arrest me for that. I will take as sure a way, but a safer one." At this he produced a vial of vitriol, and with a rag rubbed it upon the soft, yielding flesh. She shrieked in agony, bu the crushed a pillow over her mouth, and drowned her outcry. Ihen he left the room, saying "I m done now. You're disfigured for life, curse you." For a few moments she lay in dreadful pain, but, struggling up, she burst her bonds, and hurried into the street and to a phy sician. On the case being reported at the seven teenth precinct stationhouse, Captain M'Cul lough notified his officers of the occurrence, and they expect to have Pickard before long. aiad-Dogs in Connecticut. New Haven Journal, March 23d : New- hallville, Connecticut, was wrought up to quite a high pitch of excitement yesterday. and many of the inhabitants refrained from ventunnir out of their houses for fear of hy drophobia, a report being rife that a number ot mad-dogs were raging around. It ap pears mat a large dog belonging to Mr. IJart. of the firm of Dart & Reynolds, carriage manufacturers, went mad, or at least exhib ited decided symptoms of madness, as he rushed about foaming at the mouth, with eyes wildly glaring, and snapped at every thing he met. On his travels he bit several other dogs, and at last, the excitement spread ing among the inhabitants, a number of men turned out with guns and pistols and shot the mad-dog, and, if reports are true, dispatched canine vicums aiso. ine terror which had affected the people owing to the dogs had not subsided last evening, as it was feared that some one of the dogs which had been bitten mignt not have been killed.

From an Occasional Correspondent of the Aiieal.l . Sax Mauco, March 23. There has been so much said about southern Texas, in regard to the climate, fertility of the soil, etc., that I wish to say a few words through your val uable paper about this over-rated and falsely represented country. It is the most changea ble climate in the United States. It istolera bly healthy, we admit, but not near as much so as represented. We have chills and fever here as well as anywhere else, and also a few cases of pneumonia in the last few weeks. The soil is very rich, where it is rich, btt it is like all other countries it has poor land and lots of it. It has been represented as a level, unbroken country, and as rich as the Mississippi bottom, with scarcely a poor spot in it. This is false; it is a hilly country, or the greater portion of it, and as much poor land as ever I saw in any State, with scarcely enough timber for fire-wood for one year if it was all settled up. They are hauling rails from six to twenty miles ; their water they haul in the summer from three to forty miles, and glad to get it at that. Still, they tell the people it is the best country in the world, and the climate as mild as that of Italy. Now, my dear friends, you who are preparing to move to Texas, come and look tor your selves before you sell your little homes in the States. Don t believe what you read on pa per. These glowing tales are gotten up by railroad companies and land speculators. You ask one of these men where he lives, and he will tell you in St. Iyuis, or somewhere in the old States. Now, if this is such a good country, why don't they move to it? There have been more families broken up and more young men ruined by these railroad and land speculating companies than any other class of men in the world. Prosperity of Texas. Texas seems to be getting more immigra tion and showing more signs of prosperity than any other State in the west. Nine out of twelve railroads are completing extentions, and new and lively towns are springing up in every direction. Besides accessions from other directions, over one hundred thousand immigrants have crossed Red river from the north since last September, and still the tide pours in. Alt branches of business are re ported buoyant. Open the Indian Territory to civilization and the prairie States of the southwest would soon equal the great north west in population and value of products. Deal Ciently with the Stomach.
