Ulaliup Garrett Tell. Who Mmnld
and Wlio Should Not Go to the
Lone Slur State.
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
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

ple. 'I would not advise poor people, j
who bive ouly money enough for trans

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

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
. 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.

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
