Senatoblll number twenty-two sus pending tho sale of public lands was taken up. Pending tho discussion the senate adjourned to tho houso to witness tho Inauguration of Governor Ireland. On tho senate's returning to.lta chamber, Lieutenant-Governor Storey delivered tho following address: Gentlemen of tho Senate: For ton long years It lms been my foitunc to lie a member of tho legislature of Texas, and retiring from public life and tho olllce of lieutenant-governor of tho stato, I cannot refrain from ex pressing to you my grateful acknowl edgements for the uniform kindness and considerations shown mo by the members, olllcdrs and employes of tho senate. During these years of toll and service, I have doubtless committed many blunders. Tocorrect them when discovered has been a pleasure as it was my bounden duty. It is gratifying to mo to know that during my two years of service as president of thoHcnatolho mantle of charity lmi been thrown over my errors whatever they were. Xo ruling of mine has ever been ap pealed from, nor -am T conscious that any olllcers or employes of tho Fcnato have ever complained or had causo to complain of tho manner In which I have discharged my ofllclal duties. If any feel that (hey have not received at my hands the fullest consideration duo them I trust that they will at onco banish them forever from their minds, for nothing has. been more foielgn to my desires, and in my retirement rest assured that there will roat with mo tho kindest feelings for all those with whom I have been associated, and In after years, when 1 shall look back upon tho past, no spot along my political path way will call to mind so many fond recollections as the senate of Texas. 1 1 Is hero T have met and mingled with tlio patriotic men of Texas who come to the senate for the good of tho state. They found tho btato In a de moralized and bankrupt condition, without credit and an empty ticasury, an enormous debt, and an oppressive taxation, and u standing army, in a tlmo of peace, with nothing to pay them; her bonded debta bearing 10 per cent., while her warrunts upon tho treasury were being hawked on the streets at llfty cents on tho dollar. Tho permanent school fund In l)i73 con sisted of but $2,020, 10") In money and but 2,703,(172 acres of land, and a school system whoso praise was sung only by an army of olllcials who consumed an nually one-fourth of thoavailablo fund to pay tholr own bidarles. As there suit of our patriotic efforts a mighty change lias been wrought. We pow have a prosperouw and happy people, an overflowing trensurv. an enormous irovernment. u comparatively small debt, a low rate of inleiest, low taxation and a restored credit. Her treasury warrants are at par while her bonds aro belling at a premium of from llfty to fifty-two cents. Moro than fifty thousand acres of land has been ndded to tho school fund while the cash and interest bearing bonds be longing to tlio school fund Is approxi mately nearly live undji half millions. In short tho state has fieon placed on tho high load to piosperlty and with liberty, progress, reform and pros perity Inscribed on her banner, she Is moving forward to that grand destiny that awaits her. I will be pardoned for expressing the prido I feel when 1 remember that J have been associated with the men who have done much to bring about this grand lcsult; and now, sen ators, permit me to, nnnounco that Lieutenant-Governor Martin has taken the oath In his room, wheio ho is confined to his bed by sickness, and to him I now surrender the trtiot here tofore confided to me. I again tender my sincere thanks for the btipport the senate has always given me. and for the resolution of confidence and es teem you have adopted to-day. The address was ordered to bo printed.

Boborts took a seat on the right of tlu president of the senate, and Gov-" ernor Ireland on the lelt of the speaker; Judgo "Walker, Dr. Ash bel Smith and other prominent citi zens occupying places on tho platform. The lurg hull was literally packed with visltois of both soxes, to whom Sneaker Gibbon introduced Hon. O, M. Roberts, governor of Texas fan- plausc). Governor Roberts spoke as follows: Senators, Representatives and Fellow citizens: On leaving tho olllce of gov ernor of your state. I desire to return my slncero and grateful thanks to tho members of the legislature for the who action given tlio government during my two administrations, also to tho executive ofllcois and employees generally, for tho good work performed, and to my fel low citizens genorally, throughout tho stato for their favorable appreciation and confidence.

(Immense applause.) Judge "Walker of this city adminis tered the oath of office to Governor elect Ireland, and ho being hit induced by Speaker Gibson,, addressed tho house.

Compti oiler Brown turned ovor to his successor $100,000 in remittances blnro January flrsl. Some of Governor Robert's friends are quite wratliy over Governor Ire land's Inaugural address this morning, and think he unnecessarily reflected on the old man and his administration. In some quarters tlio talk is strong, and among others almost to bitterness. Receipts ut the treasury to-day were over ?20,W)0. Texus Is now without a secretary of state. Mr. Raines' nomination has not been sent to the senate and as the stautes provide that the secretary of state's term ends with that of the gov ernor appointing him, Secretary Bowman bays ho bus no power to act any further. Mr. Balnea1 nomination will probably go in to-morrow. Governor Roberts and family will remove to-morrow to his farm two miles from Austin.
