Now, what 1h thu plan surest nil hy the governor for amending the consti tution? Let us have a clear view at once. It 1b Hi Is: Flint. r'or tho present legislature to prcparo a full and carefully digested set of amendments, virtually almost forming a Dew constitution, and have them printed for general distribution, examination and discussion through out the state. Kecond. When this same legislature re-assembles next winter, It can molli fy, amend or enlurgo these proposed amendments to meet tho publio will as manifested In regard to them, and then formally, In a constitutional mode, sub. mit them to tbo people to he ratilied or rejected at the next election for a new legislature lu December. 1875. If adopted by the people, tho legislature, then to bo elected, will ratify them when it meets in January, 1870, and then wo will havo tiro henclits of its provisions. It is a long time to wait, nearly two years, but it Is the only mode left to reach an object so deeply affecting tho rights and welfare of the people. It must be borne in mind that amend ments have to bo proposed by one leg' islature, adopted by the people, and rat Ified hy anew or succeeding legislature, Each legislature lias two sessions, and this session being the first of this leg Islature, the suggestion of Governor Coke is a happy one, to have amend ments prepared and widely published now, so that tills same legislature, at its second session, can change them put a finishing touch on thorn- after some months of investigation and discussion hy the people. It will, however, be a slow, not to say provok intr, truarantv of a wise, conservative and well digested constitution. Having fought earnestly for what wo believed to be a hotter and more American way of accomplishing the great good desired by all our political friends, wo arc not disposed to bo cap. tious, but advise our friends in tiie leg islature to adopt this, the only mode left, and make tho best possible use of it. At the same time, tho fourteenth legislature must never crow over the thirteenth on the question of unselfish patriotism. The thirteenth bravely walked the plank to save the people, SiKTlI AMD NT. MATTHEW. It turns out that the statements pub lished some weeks ago, announcing the election of our young friend Beth Sliepard as senator from Washington and Burleson, ever the Hon. M Mat thew Gaines, the vivacious and witty man of stone coal color, were untrue, When tho figures were all counted, St. Matthew was found to bo just three dozen votes ahead of tho handsome blonde, our gallant young friend Keth, of whose name we read in tho twonty lifth verse, chapter iv. of Genesis, wherein it is also written (verso 20): "And to fcieth to him also there was horn a son; and ho called his name Kuos: then began men to call upon the liamo of the i-iord." Now, that Keth of the Bible vrn a shepherd, and so is our Setli of Washington county, and had he not been beaten by one bearing a new Testament name, it would, by imnl cation. !e ri argument tliat a majority of I he s.i'li'ugans of Wash ington and jluric.ioii were either pa gans, heathen or Infidels. As it is, we cannot make the charge; for if we did, St. Matt., of Washington, would confront us with the patent fact that he bears tho name of him whoso writ ings come first in the followers of the Redeemer. So, as the old and new testament names are now iu conflict, we must keep close to shore, lest storms and angry waves engulf us. We may, how ever, be permitted to say, without risk of excommunication, that Beth will contest the seat of St. Matt before the grand sandhedrim, and leave thein to say which is rightfully entitled to occu py that cushioned chair, and vote yea or nay on grave matters or state. How rapidly things are changing in these United States. Glance back for moment to the first two years of the war and look at things as they then were. Recall the positions of Kcott, Lincoln, Triggs, Seward, Stanton, Sumner, Thomas, Lee, the immortal Jackson, C'anby, Sedgewlck, Halleck, Thaddeus Stevens and a host of others, whose uames were ire-eminent in the great struggle where are they now? A sepulchral voice from the grave re sponds dead I A few years more ana all who figured as leaders on either side of that gigantic struggle, will be In their graves. A few years later and all of all ages, sexes and conditions, who took part in the mighty contest, will have passed from this life to that unknown hereafter, wherein the eye of faith only n Iook- "Man fa of few days and full of trouble.

Till: linlvir liy of the south, the young but great Institution of the pro. tcNianl Kplscopal church, on Kcwance mouiitaln, TcniicMscc, began Ha sev enth year yesterday, March W, under the most favorable auspice. This great Institution was llrst sug gested hy the loved and lamented Ill-Imp lllcneral) Lciinldiis Polk, of Louisiana. It rapidly sprang Into being under tlie patronage of several soul hern slates, hut during the war all its build lugs were burned. Hlueo the war It has made herculean strides, and prom ises to become one of tho chief cduc tlonal centers of the American com! limit. As the conception of tho great and wind Hlslnm I'ol!;. who aave his life to the southern cause, it will tor ever command tho best wishes of the southern people. W'K wero pleased to meet in our city yesterday, .Mr. A. O. Monroe, of the (ireenvillu (Hunt county) Herald, who visits our city in tho interest of his pii' per. Mr. M. informs us that Green vllle and Hunt county generally is im proving rapidly, and thecountry tilling up with an excellent class of lmm! grants. Hunt county, since tho com plution of tho Texas and Pacific rait road, trades almost exclusively with Dallas, by way of Terrell, which is her shipping point. Terrell is the nearest to her of any railway, and thither all her trade concentrates, A daily mail route has been established from (ireeii' vllle to Terrell, distance twenty-seven miles, and service will commence on tho 1st of July next. We commend Mr. Monroe and his excellent paper to our mercantile conv niuniiy, us affording a good medium of comniunicatlntr witli tho people of Hunt county. A few weeks ago a gentleman of Dallas, by way of experiment, planted in his yard a lotof walnuts, pecans and chestnuts, using the chestnuts that were sold at tho fruit stands on tlie street. Ho already has n number of each -rowing above irroiiml. As to walnuts and pecans, they grow as read ily as grains of corn ; but as no chest nuts have ever grown indiginously west of the Mississippi in tho United States, it was an experiment to plant them. Ho far it is a perfect success Time only can determine whether they will become healthy, nut-bearing trees, On that point we have no doubt. It is a singular fact, that alter cross ing tho Mississippi from Alabama Tennessee and Kentucky, no chestnuts are found as native trees till wo get to tho mountains some fifteen miles south west of the city of Mexico, in latitude nineteen. JriKiE William C'hamhkks, of the Liberty district court, has been trium phantly acquitted, hy our democratic senate, of the fourteen charges pre ferred against him on impeachment, An acquittal by such a body, he being a radical appointee of Governor Davis, must bo accepted by just men as twin dication in other wards, as conclu sive evidence of his innocence. W do not hesitate to express sincere grat iflcaliou at tho result. We had sup posed ho was guilty of judicial wrong, and, if so, desired his impeachment, but knew nothingof the facts. ehavi known him for some twenty years as a Texian, and though a political oppo nent, vc are glad he has not soiled his ermine.' We notice on our streets various ve hicles called "floats' those long con cerns, high In front and low in rear constructed for the purpose of carrying great bulks of freight for short distances In largo business towns they are indis pensable to the moving of cargoes. To our agreeable surprise, wo learned the other day, that those elegant structures seen on our street, were natives of Dallas, having been born in the busy workshop of Mr. James Carey, whose enterprise is well known, hut now en hanccd by these specimens of his es tablishment's capacity. Would there were a variety of such in our town. Thanks to Colonel A. V. DeBarry, secretary of state, and also George T. Dashiell, Esq., private secretary to tho governor, for pamphlet copies of au net to provide money to pay the float ing debt of the state;" "an act to au thorize the governor to sell certain bonds of the state and to adjust and settle the indebtedness of the state with Williams & Guion." and the "joint resolution to require the state treasurer not to pay certain warrarns, except out of the funds especially pro vided for the payment of such war rants." Mb. Jamek A. Moonv, for thirty nine years a worthy citizen of Victo ria. Texas, and the wife of the Hon. A. ir Pliillios. of the same place, both died n few days since In that town. Having known Mr. Moody since our youth and Mrs. rhillips since she was little Agnes Fleming lolh as menus the relatives of earh have our sym- thics. KltOM an extra of tho Slircvoport Times, we learn that the steamer Southwestern, from New Orleans, bound fir Khreveport, was totally de stroyed by fire at Colfax court house, about daylight last Sunday mornuig. No lives lost, Urt ail the cargo and baggage of most of the passengers was lost. Boat vuliK-d at $33,000, and in Rtircd for SI0JXI0. The fire was no doubt the work of an incendiary. i Under an act recently passed by th Wisconsin legislature, three commis sioners have been appointed by the governor, who are authorized to fix the schedule of maximum rates for railroads in that state, charge In ex- pe being punished by heavy .penalty. Too mifn rain is delaying the planting of corn. Fruit trees are In full bloom; forest trees are budding forth, and all the signs Indicate an early spring always providing, as the old folks say, we have no late frosts.

Tho economy was all on the other side, as timu will show. It is no fault of ours, hut In direct opposition to tho conservative views wo havo advocated. It Is estimated that In the last twenty years In the United States has exported In coin $90U,O0ti,(XK) of gold to Europe from tho port of New York. A very Inconsiderable quantity In comparasou has been returned. The most of It has gone to Africa; Asia and the Kast In dies, when; green papers with pic- lurcson them don't circulate as money. A yoi'.nu man named Suttoi:, who recently spent some time In Dallas, and his companion, named Gobc Slaughter, were murdered at Iiuliano la, a few days since, by u part of what is known as the Taylor crowd. Mr, Sutton was a nephew of our fellow-clt- i.en Captain Sluilts. People cry hard times, yet we see its many houses, brick, stone and wood, going up as at any former period, which looks like the complaint was without foundation. The new block on Market, between Main and Elm streets, is Justly admired. Thanks to tho Hon. John W. Lane, assistant secretary of the senate, for a pamphlet copy of records in tho mat ter of the charges against M. Priest, judge of tho fourth judicial district ease new pending ocfore the legislature, by presentment. We are pleased to meet in Dallas our old-time friend, Ex-h!euteuant Gov ernor Fletcher S. Stockdale, of Iudia nola, a gentleman whose counsels as a senator and otherwise, have ever been for tho good of Texas. A LKNdTHY discussion took place on the International railroad question, which was joined in by Senators Brad ley, Friend, Wood, Culberson and Dil lard, but no conclusion was arrived at. Giiayson county proposes to have tho finest court house in the state, so the Sherman papers say, and the coun ty court has authority to collect a tax SilljOOO per annum to pay for it. The legislature, on Tuesday last, by a decided vote in both branches, sus tained the charges against Judge M. Priest, proceeded against by address, tlniM relieving tho judge- of further ser vice on the bench. The governor has issued a proclama tion ordering an election, to take place on the 10th of April, to fill the vacancy in the lower house, occasioned by the resignation of Hon. W. L. Moody.

We clip the following Items from the McKInney Enquirer, of yesterday: Last Wednesday JUr. Uallalian, a govern went agent, came into town and created quite a furor by notifying our postmaster and his suritles that he was authorized to arrest him. It seems Chat the postmaster had been running short for twelve months past, and dis regarded entirely tho request of the postmaster general to settle up, but thought he could make better use of the money himself. The result was that when the books and accounts were cast up, the postmaster was found short about 18,000, which will be made good by his sureties, all of whom, with one or two exuepuous. upe uuie-ouuicu men, ready and willing .to pay all claims coming agclust them. It is with sorrow that wo announce to our readers that we are one of tha sureties, and belong to tiie excepted class those who are not able to pay and If there Is any one wanting to help lis out tv paying a year's subscription In ad vanoe, we staud ready to receive it. In Collin county we have twelve prosperous villages auu unvns, not counting McKinney, to-wll: 1'lano, Tensilon, urea Jim, Jincn s aims, Weston, Mantan, Wysong's Mill's Me lissa, Blue Ridge, I'armersvillc, Mill wood anil Decatur. At each or these places in fact, all over our fertile boundaries creditable improvements are being made.

There wero also, a committee of gen tlemen selected to second tho labors of Messrs. Bower and Finley, and three clerks to engross the numbers and prizes as they wero called out. Pre cisely at eight o'cluck Captain Adams, of the banking firm of Messrs. Adams & Leonard, of this city, stepped upon tho stage and delivered tho following very appropriate and neat address: Ladies and Gentlemen: in be half of thu managers of the "Library Association," I wish to return to you, to the citizens ot tills city anu county and of adjoining counties, our most grateful acknowledgements for the very nucrai encouragement you nuvo given us in tins, our iirsi enterprise. Manilestly its object is audi as to com mend itself to every thinking mind. It is remotely removed from all sollisli motives, and, while It is not intended to aid and. cannot in a pecuniary way further tho Interest of any individual connected with it. it bus for its aim, the fostering of the moral and mental weal of the People of the whole state. Fundamentally it is to build up lu this citv, a public library, that will be self sustuining and tilled with valuable books and reading matter, open and free to everv one who desires to read or study. We-wish to adorn it with such n irrudat iou of literature as will induce all classes to beco.no Its constant visi tor; we wish to havo a building at tractive, comfortable and convenient and an intellectual shrine of tho entire nation. Tho inllucnco ot tins enterprise is twofold it promotes knowledge and it promotes morals. It can be made the public resort for ull classes, the rich and the poor, anu an asyiuni mr moso, old or voumr. who are surrounded or beligucrcd with the hollow splendors and deceptivo allurements or vice which curse this eitv. its intlueiioe will be felt abroad rnd reach those from other states who are seeking homes in Texas. Some persons havo conscientious scruples with respect to investment lu this scheme, because, as they say, it iaathinirofchance. To such we say that if tliev buv a ticket solely for the purpose of drawing a prize, then it with them a game of hazard orchnuce but if thev have the good of this enter priso at heart, they can take a ticket to promoie me goon oujects 01 it, mm let the "chance" take care of itself. Furthermore, this is no more a game of chance than those 01 lire or lilo in surance. The library association of this city was llrst begun about two years ago. It now has a membership ot one hun dred and fiftv. about one thousand vol nines and over one hundred and fifty newspapers and periodicals, eon t nun ted from all portions of tho union Tho most, if not all the books havo been contributed by various parties, Under the present system, the mem bers contribute so much quarterly for its support. It is true that this is but a small trifle, but men get tired of leak holes and try to stop them, so members aro tiremg 01 tins, nenco we are an de sirous to change it making it, as I havo before said, a free library anil self- sustaining. It were almost au insult for me to say, that every man, woman and child, not only in this city and county, but iu thu adjoining counties. aro directly anil deeply interested in our success. To those farmers iu the country who have families, sons and daughters, 1 would especially say that this is tho best and cheapest modo of furnishing thein with all the reading matter they want. We havo been far more successful with this, our first drawing, than we expected, and are therefore fully en couraged that we will make a porfect success in the lutiiro. our people at home and abroad are taking an active interest in it, and as Jong as tins is the case, nothing will prevent it from becoming a grand suocud, To those who invest for gain, tliia en terprise will oiler oa great inducements asanv in thecountry. of a similar char acter: a very large proportion of money received from sale of tickets go ing to ticket-holders, and its drawings and management can never ne ques tioned. We thank you lor your pome attention. After the warmest demonstrations of anuroval upon Captain Adams speech had subsided, tho Cosmopo lite's, a combination of musical ania- tuers, composing some of the most talented and brilliantly cultured young g!itjemen of our city, gave two mag nificent instrumental executions, con sisting of Pryor'H ''Sparkling Eyes Waltz," and List's "Cataraot Galop," which was received with the most cor dial plaudits by the charmed house. At the conclusion of this musical treat, the drawing took place, with tho fol lowing result: No. Prise. .....I 6 U0 6 VU .. li UU UM 0 6 00 6 UU Itt 6 Oil No 218 S71 4tt...

Here wo found a tract of ground one hun dred -by two hundred feet with a grad ual southerly fall, surrounded by n 'm and substantial panel fence, ciiriosiiig the olllco building, the factory build ing, the quarters for the workmen and tho stable. After a reception by the proprietors, which would have electri fied brother Xowton, of the Signet, we were shown tho enigma of soap mak ing, and informed that every live days, six hundred gallons of lye, with due proportion of other ingredients, turned out llvethou.Huud pouudsot soap, which the admirable nerve and unflinching energy ot llio proprietors had deter mined should, before many months, wash every man, woman and child in tho state.

Messrs. Cotter & Lachappello have expended two thousand seven hundred dollars iu tho erection of this facto ry, and havo entered into the work with earnestness and spirit.

I'rcparliiK for the lr:ilii(t. The committee appointed for the pur pose begau yesterday the work ot counting the tags which aro to go into the great wheel at the drawing for the benefit of tho public library of Ken tucky, March ill. These tags aro oval pieces of leather, all cut precisely alike by the sumo die. They arc an inch and a half in the greater, and three fourths of an Inch in the lesser diame ter. They are made of leather so as to stand the friction to which they are subjected iu the revolutions of the wheel which mixes them. Numbers are printed upon them with huge type, so that they ,'ie easily seen. One of those tags is put into the wheel for every ticket sold. There will conse quently be OiyiOO of (hem used at (he 31st of March, and they will be num bered from 1 to (J0,0l 10. Tho committee are governed by the most rigid rulea in tho count they make and tho care they take of the tags. They have a room for their work to which there are sepcrato locks, and to which one can not enter without tiie others. They must all go in togeth er, and work together and come out together. And, when their counting is done, they stow away tho tags under sepcrato locks, and superadd thereto the guard of seals, which aro only opened at the time of placing the tags in tho wheel. With such scrupulous care a mistake is impossible, and all who buy tickets may rest assured that their numbers will bo represented by tugs in the wheel at tho drawing. It is hardly necessary to add that this committee consists of gentlemen who aro in 110 way connected with the public library in any of its depart ments. They are disinterested citi.ens- whose duty is to see that every ticket, holder has a fair and equal chance for the prizes. That this will be done the eniiiiont cljaraufor and spotless integ rity of tho committeemen are sufficient guarenteo. Urent Kttern.
