Ilia appointment is indicative of a liberal poli cy in the government towards tho Stato, for wo bavo no doubt that, regardless of all past political difference, the people of Al nbaraa will look upon him as the friend of the State.

Al though this was Ibe statement in the pub lished terms, it nevertheless left a doubt as to its praeticabillity, lor it scemsclear that a soldier cannot be paroled by proxy. But the matter is now plain; the order is pub lished, sn I officers and soldiers are required to report hromptly and give their paroles. The order also requires that all "public propcriy of sny description whatever, as arms, bones, munitions, 4c, formerly be longing to the so-called Confederate States, or tbe State of Texas," bs turned over to the United Siatrs' officers at the places abo.nientioned.

JAMES BOURLAND, Col. and Com'r. for Collecting Men. &c, in Northern flub-DisI, Texas. i m m ' Tlio Galvostonf Houston) News of thellOih says: "A portion of tho 111th Ohio regiment. Col. Kelly, and tho iilih Iowa, Col. Clark, arrived by a special train from Galvoston vestorday muriiing. The babinco of the illth Ohio came by a steamer with supplies last nieht. The whole number of troops in tho two regiments is said to bo about loUO. Col. Clark takes command at this post. It is-statod that these two regiments will re main permanently hore. An unfortunate event took place soon after the arrival of the troops yesterday morning. Two negros, one acting as cook aud the other a servant of Major Beebe, of tho 31th Iowa, wore going up tho street, when somo difficulty took placo between ouc of the negros and a whito man, the nature of which is not fully ex plained, but it resulted in tho negro being shot through the neck, the wound causing his death in about ton minutes. It i sup posed that the negro usod somo violent lan guago provoking tho fatal Bhot. Somo re port that the negro took up a brickbat to throw it at tho white man, which provoked him to shoot. It is said that the white man suddoiily disappeared. Since writiug the above, wo havo scon tho evidence before the Coronor's inquest, which is to the effect that tho negro caino in contact with a whito man on tho side walk, when, a moment after, the negro jumped off into tho street and took up a brickbat, raising it iu his hand as if lo throw it, whereupon young Mr. Cotton shot a pistol, the negro falling at the same timo. The evidence of tho physician was, howover, positive that tho negro wa3 killed with a knife, which entorcd the front part of the neck near tho collar bone, and passed entirely through, coming out on the opposite sido, to the left of tho spinal bone. This knife wound caused his death, and there was no other wound on his body. How Ibis wound was inllicted, was not shown by Iho rvidence. Tho Mayor himself officiated as Coroner. Ycstovday was a busy day with the Fed eral troops, who were engaged in preparing their quarters in the court house square. Thev took possession of the new e.nnrt bouse, naacuuei-teu u mil) oarracks for the time beiug. Col. Kelly and Col. Clark both called on the Mayor, expressing a desire to act in conjunction with him in sustaining order, should their sorviccs be needed, and assuring him that they enmo as friends and fellow citizens of the same govornmcnt. They desired the Mayor to show them such public buildings as would answor their purpose for public offices, such as head quarters, I'rovost Marshal's office, &c. This was accordingly done. We understand that Major i.emis is I'rovost Marshal, and bus his office at the late headquarters of Gen. Magrudor, and will commence paroling prisonors to-morrow, We learn from a friend just from Florida that he saw Ccu. Breckcnridgc and Mr. J. P. Benjamin passed through Madison, FU., on thoir way to Havana, where lator ac counts say they have both arrived. Com. Vauderbilt, wo learn, through Mr. Price, is about establishing a line of first class steamers, lo ruu between Galveston and BerwioUs Bay, connecting with the railroad at the latter point for NcwOrleane; also a line of heavy Bteamers, from New Orleans, touching at Galvcetou, Matagorda, and Biases Santiago. Speaking of Gen. Granger, who has taken command of the District of Texas, the Mo bile News of the 1-ith ult. remarks: "Ono common foellng of regret was manifested that Ucn. Uranger is soon to leave us. His habit of clear and broad practical thinking, and his great adminis trative ability, would have helped us sig nally in readjusting onr political relations. He is a roan, however, who by force of his genius will create opportunities, and wheth er in Texas or Alabama, will be as influen tial in giving a right direction aud tone to political ideas as hs will be Invincible in oampaigns and battles.

Somo of the passengers gained the nearest bank, and others reach ed the opposite side in safety. To render the disaster moro appalling. the Texas took fno after tho stoamer had careened. It was supposed that the coal oil lamps we io upset by the shock, and that thuir intlainable contents were spilled upon tho beds. This tire was fortunately quick ly extinguished, otherwise a very largo nutn bcr would have been added to tho mournful list of the lost. The paroled prisoners were principally members of Missouri regiments. Thcro were some Arkansas soldiers onboard, and a small number of I.ouisiatiians. There were no Federal soldiers among tho num ber. The officers of tho Kentucky, were, it is believed, all saved. A". 0. Times. Fkoh tiir Hio Guandb. Tho arrival at Galveston brings Iho Matamoras Monitor of tho 10th: It says the last body of tho Austrian Legion, consisting of COOO men on their way from Europe, havo received orders to dis embark at Matnmo.os. The villages of the North, which for a few months havo been deprived of their intercourse with Matn moros, will now soon be re-opened with the notice of reviving the cotton trado with Texas, and also the trade with Matamoros and Saltillo, tho latter places having suf fered severely under the rulo of Juarez. Geus. Lopez and Olvara, who left Mata moras obout ten days ago with a column of infantry and cavalry to assume offensive operations against the Liberals, havo suc ceeded in cleaning out this department, driving tbe enemy beyond tho San Juan river nnd capturing many prisoners, arms and horses. A party of desperadoes be longing to the force of Juarez, a few days ago atlackod tho elago of Cuornadricn, rob bing tho passengers of everything they pos sessed, nnd taking threo of them prisoners. Soon afterwards a detachment of soidiors hearing of the affair, immediately started in pursuit of the robbers, overtook them, liberated the captives, capture 1 several of Ihe band, nnd shot thorn instantly. Lower California is completoiy under tho rulo of tho Juarez faction, everything there being in a disordered state. We are fully convinced that the pecplo of this section will rejoice in tho day when the Empire shall extend its powor over said region, and establish law, order, &c which aro now being utterly neglected and dis regarded by tlie Liberals. Oaxaca. The general belief here is that this Department will submit to the Enipiro without resistance. Guebilias, Xinihio Maei it ! commanders of his force, noted for their audacity in tho woods of San Luis, have surrendered to the Imperialists. The Boletin de Oajaoa has received in formation that Gen. Lopez, commander of the Juarez forces in the state of Guorrcro, had disarmed and ordered the imprison ment of the old band of Chalo Bias, who heretofore have been exercising their habit of plundering the inhabitants of that le gion by order of Pareveles. The Bulletin adds that this example ought to be imitated by all other Generals who are fightinc for the same cause in vindicat ing its honor. This system, howevor, if adoptod, and promptly carried out, would soon reduce the forces of Juarez toinsignif- icant numbers. The official journal of Qucrctaro announces the occupation of Chi huahua by Ihe Imperialists. A Talk with STEPnuxs. A friond, who saw and conversed with Alexander H. Ste phens on board the steamer at Port Royal, writes as follows in a private lettor : 'He looks much older than when I saw him in the House iu '57. He converses froely, and does not appear at all like a prisoner of war. He says he never saw so marked a change in four years, in any two men, as in Abraham Linolon and Jefferson Davis. He expressed great regret at the President's assassination, admitted that the Confederacy was played out, and teemed anxious to have peace declared, and the matter settled as speedily as possible. His idoa is to have the different rebel States re peal the ordinance of secession and accept ths Constitutional amendment. He ox pressed the opinion that seceding States will net pat,s it. lit acknowledged that his Milledgcville speech was almost pro phetic, and that be went with the popular current to prevent any clash between him self and Toombs. He appears to have do concern for himself : say he is oaly anx ious to secure as honorable terms aa possi ble for his State and people, the majority of whom he Bays never were aocesstonistf. He is bent over very much; hie hair ia near ly white, his voice is lower and not to thrill as formerly, and bis hand trembles when he o;es it j but he talks at smoothly at ever and hit eyes flash at in days gone by." A'. Y. Timti. From all that we can learn, the feart ex pressed by many offieert and soldiers, that tbe parole will disqualify them for busi ness, aro groundless. Such a disability would be a great hardship under present circumstances, at person al efforti aro nec essary to procure subsistence, at they are nearly all destitute.

The moral rclal iont of a fraternal brotherhood it yet to be es tablished ; it m ust be the work of time, and the result of honorable and just treatment. We eannol force the operations f nature. The human heart may be coaxed, it cannot be driven. We shall make the most serious mistake in Ihe world by apoing the ven geance of European despotism. We are not of them in sentimont or principle. Tht world expeot something better of tho United States Iu the hour of its triumph that a stale imitation oftherocont fioudisu severity of Russia tnwurds Poland." The Springfield (MaBS.) Republican says: "There aro three men of whom we don't see how they can he hung under any cir cumstances. The three negotiators whom President Lincolu met at Fortress Monroe aud talked with for hours, fully and frank ly, he at any ra re never could have hung. 'King's faeo brings grace.' And wo iraag iuo no ono will bo found ambitious to inter fere with his legacy of mercy. They are among the chief officers. There is onley one auovo them. With Stophens, Hunter, and Campbell spared, the balance must be nice that sink with Davit. "Do we wish to finish the rebellion, to turn out its vory nshes? Then make no martyrs. The wounds inflicted in oold blood aro what keep animosities alivo. At this moment there are a milliou of women nt the South who would give all they have lo savo Jeff. Davis's life; who would conduct and shelter him as Flora McDonald did tbe fugitive Charles Edward. If hit life is ta ken, they aro ready to dip thoir handker chiefs in his blood, to beg locks of hoir, and to perpetuate for a hundrorl 'lie sen timont of vengoance. Unless we present them this grievance, in five years he will be rcmouibored only as the author of innu morablo woes. The Now York Times, endorsing President Johnson's reconstruction polioy, says: "Nearly all of tho Southern States bold their elcotion under tho old laws in early August. There is no good roason why they may not prcpar themselves, by that time, to exercise the franchise as of old, and toeleet Governors, members of Legislature and mem bers of Congress. To accomplish this, they have only to co-operato in a good faith with the initiatory movements now made by the National authorities. "This plan of treating as absolutely void the ordinances of secession, and everything done by the legislators and all public func tionaries acting under them' is tho only logical sequence of tho original principlo that no Stato has a right to secede. It is tho only plan which saves tho supremacy and dignity of the Constilution, and whioh is frco from all mischievous precedent. To admit that all Southern States have been out of the Union, is to admit their power to put themselves out. It is to say that an act may be done counter to the Constitution, and yet havo a logal effect. If this be pos sible on a large scale, it must be no less possible an a small scale. If States can act with legal effect against the Constitu tion, so can individuals." The Houston Telegraph states erroneous ly that tho call for three cheers at the rais ing of the United States flagon the Custom House at Galveston, whlon mot with no re sponse from the crowd, was made by a Fed eral officer. The call was made by Mr. C. Fox, a citizen of this place, and it appeared to us it was done in a conversational tone, not expecting a response. The Federal ofh curs preaent bad the flag raisod in a busi ness manner, and exhibited no feeling and invited no demon stratio I whatcvor. Gal vttton Jlulletin. A drunken soldier in the army of India, having been lately confined in thoblackhole for intoxioati3n, felt something orawiing over him. Knowing it to be a serpent, and fearing its deadly lute, he kept quite still, while the reptile crawled inside of his jacket and coiled himself up for a nap. vrnen me guard came to release him some hours after, a snake a cobra quickly glided away. The guard noticed with surprise that the prisoner's head had turned whito, and he died a few hours after telling hit story.
