Bishop Ourrclti of tho Northern Texas Protcstaat Episoopul diocese, gave a lecture upon Texas coloniza tions in the ohurch of St. John, the Evangelist, Third and Heed streets last evening. The assembly room eon' taineil a lull gathering of the working men and women of Southward, gD teel in manner and dress, and appar ently of the very class which eastern communities can least afford lo Iobo- The bishop adopted a plain, cou verba tiotul speech, and made himself very clearly understood, using now and then a map of the Uuitcd States and an other of the Texas & Pacific railroad. He spoke chiefly of northern Textts, because, in his opinion, it was the best part of the Lone Star State for emi gruuls, and because he was more inti mately acquainted with that region. Between the Trans-Continental and Texas & Pacific railroad is a parallelo. gram of rich land, suitable for pioneer farmers. A belt of timber-land ruus south from Texarkann, the entire point of the two roads ; west of it is the ag ricultural belt, aud still further west is the grazing land. The agricultural belt, two hundred miles wide, aud run ning the length of the State from north to south, appeared to him the finest land in tbe world. It has a black waxy soil, impregnated with lime, free from sand, fifteen feet deep and pro ductive of the staples of both north and south. But it is hard to cultivate, and therefore, some emigrauls despair, Thirty-five miles or so away from the railroad, land ia cheap, and if an emi grant has money enough to buy a piece, station himself upon it and work hard he will soon come out maater. But the man who goes thither should have his one tbounud dollars when his foot is finally planted upon the suitable spot. If he has tbe one thousand dollars, is industrious and sober, he will be inde pendent iu five years. But there are too moy poor people there now. Tex a docaarjot want absolutely poor peo ple. 'I would not advise poor people, j who bive ouly money enough for trans portation,' said he 'to go to IS'otthern Tens fertile and promising at the couotrr '- Xbere are no charitable abodes for the sick and unfortunate . the emigrant should, not go to that Slate aoIeM he can maintain himlf urjtil a foothold it established. Nor bonld any man who drinkt go to Tex as. WL'u-kv will not do there. Bal lets are Tplentif al, bnt for the tobtr, Texts is ta safe a place as Philadel phia. 'If you cannot live without 'whisky, you had better not set foot on Texas soil,' said tho Bishop. The kind of meu to go to Texas are the sober, horny-handed ones, with a little capital. Tradesmen with a thousand dollars can locate at Sherman, Fort Worth and especially Weatherford. further west, and start up successfully, hut no shop clerks, with, fiuo apparel and imraaoulate choker, are needed. It ia amaaing what interowt the peoplo now take iu religion. They are keen, acute, and remarkably good judges of a sermon, so that olergymen with empty heads and cold hearts will soon find that they aro in tho wrong place. The Bishop eoooludod by ad vising oil w'.to desire to eministo to seo to it that they get trustworthy in formation of land and of land titles No man should, go to Texas until he hag counted the cost. FA ila ('; hia 2Yis. Till': lOL,L.AK. Tho Country Demandi lt) Rea lorntlaau Graphic, There is no longer any use in hoping to get a fair and honest statement of the purpose and effect of Bland s Silver bill from any morning paper printed in New York. They are so unanimously bent on maintaining the gold monopoly that they seem incapable, uot only of stating, but even of seeing the truth They denounce the bill as a repudia tion scheme and a violation of plight ed faith, although it passed the house of representatives by the almoBt un precedented vote Of 163 to 34 nearly five to one. Now let us see just what the Bland silver bill does do. It directs that the coining of silver dollars of the old weight of 4121 grains Troy shall be resumed at the government mints, and makes these dollars "a legal tender at their nominal value for all deb's and dues, publie and private, except where otherwiso provided by oontraot." This does not by any means say that the United States bonds may be paid id silver dollars. For tbe bonds are a matter of written contract, which it will be the function of courts, and not of congress, to construe. There are ways enough in which the question can be got before the supreme court. Tbe Bland bill does not in any way touch the question of bond redemption, if there is a contract that they shall be paid in gold. If the court finds that there was uo such contract; if it finds that the luw explicitly declares that they bhall be paid in "coin," and that coiu at the time the contract was made included silver dollars of tho weight indicated in the Bland bill ; and if the court finds that in the Congrcssiou- al debates which accompanied the au thorization of the separate loans, it wus repeatedly declared over aud over that the bond could be redeemed "in gold or silver," and if the court finds tbat it was the distinct understanding by both borrower aud lender that they could be redeemed tn gold or silver why then in that case, the court will undoubtedly hold that a tender of gold or silver must be accepted in pay ment for the bouds. No act that Con gress can now pass can change the terms in which our bonded debt was con tracted, for such legislation would be exjxitt facto, and therefore null and void. The courU will have to decide whether the bonds must, according to contract, be paid in gold, ani the Bland bill has no more to do with it than the aeige of Kar. The Bland bill merely restores to curreocy tbe metal of which it wat clandestinely robbed. At its value hat been depreciated b disuse, to it will be increased bf restoration to the coinage, and will, to even the wildest gold laocier think, very soon attain to tbe market price of gold. If tbe Bias J bill ia not passed, tbe nation will bare only one r tbe coin tpeci-1 fied in tbe bond contract, and to will j be compelled to redeem all bond in j gold, which sow maintains an extravi-, gant price on account of the conspira cy to make it the sole standard of val ue. Tbe pasttge of the Bland bill will reduoe the market prioe of gold (meat, ured by labor,) will increase the mar ket price of silver, will save the Na tion at least $100,000,000, and will re sult in the bondholders being honest ly paid in the eoin whioh tbey agreed toaooept. ; . Cabbett'e UuHoaia t'arr. Over eighty yetrs ago, according to tho London Telegraph, a sergeant in Lord Edward Fitigerald.'a regiment of foot, while stationed in British North America, happened to past the bnt of a non-commissioned offioer of artillery and was ttruok by the tight of a young English lass, the trtilleryman't daugh ter, whose rosy and pretty face was bent low over the wash tub. The thought at onoe struck him that she was the girl he wanted for a wife, and he shap hie .oampaign accordingly with the most satisfactory results. But the bat tery to whioh her father belonged was ordered elsewhere, and her lover at parting gave her a bag of golden guin eas, telling her to spend whst she need cd and keep the rest for two years, when he would make her his wife, At, the end of two yearsjthoy met as agreed ' but instead of being leaner ,the bag of gold had received accumulations from the thrift and industry of the faithful young woman. They were married, of course, lived happily and hbd a great many children. This young sergeant was afterwards the fa. inous William Cobbett, editor of the Political Register and member of Par liament for Oldham. This in itself might be an old story, for William Cobbett has been dead for close on forty-five years, but one of his daughters died io London a few days since at the advanced age of eighty-two. She was born in Philadelphia in 1795, where her father was then selling books. Throughout her father's long snd in cessantly active publio career Miss Cobbett was the custodian of his pa pers and his chief assistant as aa amenueusis, and a large part of his most stirring compositions - went to . press in her handwriting, and berhand directed the lightnings that were sent forth against Ministers snd members of Parliament. By relationship and ( association she was an interesting character, and by her death another living link has been lost from the chain of history. I.ook Out, .Vouatr ItleH. When it is said of a man, 'lie drinks,' and it can be proven, then what store wants him lor a clerk ? What church wants him for a member? Who will trust him ? What dying man appoints him his executor ? He may have been forty years in building his reputation it goes down. Xetters of recommen dation, the backing up of business firms, a brilliant ancestry, cannot save him. The world shies off. Why? It is whispered all through the communi ty, 'He drinks; be drinks.' That blasts him. When a young man loses hit reputation for robiiety he might as well be at the bottom of theses. There) are young men here wbo have their good names as their only capital. Your father has started yon out in eity life. He could only give you an education.. He gave you no meant. He started yot, however, under Christian influ eiice You have come to the city You are now achieving $our own for tune, under God. by your own right arm. Now look 'out, young man, tbat there is no doubt of your sobriety. Do not create auy tuspicion by going io and out of liquor establithmcnti, or by any glare of your eye, or by any un natural flush of your cheek. You can not afford to do it, for your good name i your only cipital, and when tbat is blasted, with the reputation of taking stronv drink, all is gone. Chriilian at W..rk.
