der man and unarmed both the ruffians made
at him again ; the one with the cotton-hook
struck nt bis face, but Mr. L. watded bfl the
blow with his arm, getting a cut in the buck
of his hand; the one with the club at the same
moment gave him scvernl violent blows on his
forehead and the top of his henH foiling him
to the pavement. Both the villians then turn
ed and fled, nnd all that Mr. Lewis can recol
lect of them is that they were Irishmen of the
laboring class.
As soon as Mr. L. recovered sufficiently to
rise, he staggered up to Greatme'n streets bis
clothes oil torn in the back and hs whole front
covered with blood. He hailed an dinhibus,
but the driver refused to take him in ; lie then
begged a boy to take him in his cart nnd the
vbov refused." He staggered on n short distance,
' and was rnpidly falling when some gentleman
""enine to hio aid nnd supported him to a drug
store, where his bleeding was staunched ; and

Intelligence from the old garden spdt 6f
Texas Gulf Prairie, is or a gratilying charac
ter to all who know its locality, primary settle
ment, the intelligence, energy, enterprise, and
hospitality of its pioneer planters. Ihcse char
acteristics still predominate in the lower sec
tion of old Brazoria. The section of the coun
try has been, for several years, devoted prin
cipally to the cultivation of sugar-cane, lo
Peach lands are admirably adapted. '
- The sugar harvest is now cheerily rolling
rnpidlv on to a highly promising consumma
tion. "The quantity and quality of a saccha
rine product of Iho present season, .leave rig
tores of former years below the mercurial rise
in the saccharomer and the aggregate esti
mates of the amount of previous crops. Such
a result, however, is not astonishing when the
superior adaptation of the sdil and climate of
