IlAHrEB's Weekly begins to see the investigation in another light. It now gives a picture of Stanley Mathews' With his foot in a steer trap. Tub city of San Antonio is solid for Schleicher, and a majority of the counties of the District have declared in his favor. He received a splendid ovation at San Antonio ob his return home. Geo. Fremont is represented as be ing well pleased with his appointment as governor of Arizona. He wants to commence life anew, and thinks Ariz ona a good field. Mrs. Fremont is said to share her husband's feelings on this point. Caldwell oounty hold a convention and alter passing several resolutions among them one denouncing the de monetization of silver. Darden for comptroller and Savers for Lieutenant Governor were endorsed, but nothing was said about Throckmorton Hubbard or Lang. Mn. Sculeicher sucoeeded in get ting an increase of twenty thousand dollars over thn appropriation to be applied to completing the gap in the miliary telegraph line existing between Fort Davis, in the Presidio country, and El Paso, and to the construction of a new line in the region of the Nueces Tho whole amount is forty thousand dollars. Cincinnati Commercial: We do not nominate President Hayes for re election. We have to Bay, however, that a movement for his renomination may prove to be the most fit and oon elusive answer to the "third-term" fol ly, which is making its appearance among the soreheads and the remains of the rings, especially of the whisky rings. The G rant schemo is preposter OUb- Another of Hubbard's peculiar financial transactions has come to light. He obtained money from a banker in Shreveport in 1S75 in a way that made it necessary to enter suit against him and the money was finally recovered. But before it was lecorcr ed the banker came to Dallas for t'.ie purpose of exposing the Governor's part in the business, but was dissuaded from so doing by leading citizens here, on the ground that it would be a dis grace to the State- Pnlht torn. Wendell Phillips says : "Never rest while any bank has the right to issue a bill. Never rest until (Ain.ress Sup plies all our currency, made of paper, and based on the credit of the State. Never rest till the debt is funded for at leant a century, held by the people interchangeable at their will into bonds or greenback, and constituting one of the strongest ties that bind the Union together.

The best The Wintno ol lOnglnad. While thcro is a good deal of latent, wholesome prejudice against England in this couutry, growiug out of our Revolutionary struggle, thero is a very large class of people in our midst who almost worship Uritain uud British institutions. Uodeniably there is much of freedom and progress there, but it is wrought out for the very few at the expense of tho many. Probably in no country in Europe aro the great mass of the people in so abjoct and hopeless a state of ignorance and servi tude ; in none do they receivo so little sympathy. The Herod of the roon arebv. nobility and priesthood has ioioed hands with the Pilate ol tue commercial interests for the slaughter of the rights of the luboriug millions, And the worst feature of all lies in the fact that England literally "glories in ber shame." She stands foremost in the world as a political pbarisee a "whited sepulohre," full of worse than dead men's bones, viz: the perishing bodies and souls of living men, women and children, comprising the great mass of her own offspring. On precisely this foundation is the superstructure of her boasted greatness and grandeur reared, In ample proof of what we have said we invite attention to the follow ing passage from a late article by Rev Dr. Prime, who has lately visited J'jog land. We cony from the flew York Observer, remarking in passing th the writer is a very zealous and bigot ed nartisan of British institutions, Bead it, and say if there could possi bly be a greater burlesque on eiviliza-' tiou and Christianity than the conui tion of this boasted empire to-duy: The most painful reflection I have in England, comes from the vast gult between the very rich and the very poor. The extremes ot lite come into such contrast as to make one doubt tbe brotherhood ot man. We go over there with our republican notions of equality, and it is very bard lor us to reconcile this contrast wuu me aoo trine of common huuiamty, not to say Christianity. In Scotland tho most religious country in the world, the land is owned by the smallest number of people in proportion to the whole. And the poverty ot many woo tend tbe flocks, or till tbe lands, of the rich. is something that we know nothing of in our country. And we wonder, as we wander in the midst of such insti tutions, that tho world's progress makes so little change lrom generation to feneration in tbe condition ot the industrious poor. The laws ot entail. the rights of promogeniture and an Established Church are great social arrangements which perpetuate certain evils lrom which we are happily freed To these evils may be added the caste principle which prevails in England as well as in India. The distinction between tbe nobility and common clay is greater than we can believe it to be, until we see and feel its praotical pow er. Beciuse wealth is so largely con centrated and perpotuated in the no bility, and'poverty so exclusively pre vails among the lower orders, the bond of sympathy is not strong between them, and the misery of the low does not receivo, as it ought, the notioe and relief of the upper classes. Hence the extremes remain unchanged, and will indefinitely. The innate reveronco of rank is, to an American, incocceivable. But the reverence of the English mind for royalty is a positive entertainment to us untutored savages from the wilder ness. Ladies and gentlemen will at tend an exhibition, or anniversary, or nublio meeting of any kind and give their money freely to the object, if some one of the royal family is engaged to be present and give the light or bis or her countenance. The nearer to the Head of the family, the greater the honot of course, but to have the re motest tinge ot royal blood, and next to that to be of noble birth, is an at traction that brings thousands into the support of a cause from wbich tbey would turn away; it it were not under the natronaae of the hieher order. It is impossible to convey, by words, the depth and breadth of this homage to nobility and royalty. The Fan Antonio E.rprts urges the re-election ot sir. fcnnecner upon . . a . T &- 1 the simple ground that it belijves the ntercsts of the people of western Texas will be best promoted by his re-election, but says the high reputa tion and ability of Judge Ireland have never been questioned. It bases its opposition to the Judge on the alle gation that he was a stumbling block o the completion of the the Interna tional railroad to Fan Antonio, and to its intended terminus.

Geo. T. r Kchlelclicr' PoHlo the Silver Qiieull-. We have received a letter from Mr, Schleicher, and in justice to him copy the following nassane from it: am misrepresented by the press as opposing rcinooetization ot silver. J thf, firt man in Congress to advo cato it. but I advocated a dollar of .rniirrit unit fineness COUal tO a gOld dollar iu value and an adjustment of the ratio by an international oonveQ' tion. That latter is being done now I wanted to have deliberation first and action afterwards, not as now. action first and deliberation afterwards, oe causa if the international convention settles upon more or less than one 16 to 1 then we will have to change our coinage again and recoin ournewsil ver. I shall send a oirculnr stating my record. I encloso an extraot from mv sneech of Jan. 29. 1876, long be fnr thn ULnrl hill WBB thought of, The idea of the Bland bill only origi nated after silver had gone down to the lowest ebb. Then it commenced bavin attractions. I have stated that I advocated silver as an American product, like wheat or cotton, but that does not mean that we Bhould have short weight, DO cents worth of silver stamped as .a .dollar, any more thau that we should have a double-bottom ed cheating bushel measure to sell our wheat or false scales to sell DUlbs. of cotton for 5001 ba. I mention this to show you on what ground I will define my position, strict ly according to the record, that 1 was the pioneer of remonetization but that, as silver bad lost in value I wanted a readjustment of the ratio between gold aud silver by an international convention. In a word, I wanted honest measure and weight and no false stamps, certifying to a value which was notcontuined in the coin. Truly Yours, G. Schleicher. Tbrockmorlou Welcomed Home, McKinney, June 25. Gov. Throckmorton orrived home yertorday morning unexpectedly to his people, and it was indeed a pleasure to see how his many friends flocked to seo him. Among them many gray headed men and those who have known him tbe longest seemed the most anxious to extend to him the hand of welcome and say "well done thou good and faithful servant." The Governor was very much fatigued from travel and incessant labors at Washington, and alter a short rest was escorted to bis family residence in the southren part of the city by quite a number of friends. Compliment to it Texns Con- C rep-Kin ran. The Washington Post, speaking of men who did good service in congress, and who should be retained by their constituents , pays the following band some compliment to Hon. Gustave Schleioher, of Texas : If the managers of the Democratic party in the sixth OJDgressional district ot Texas, by call ing a convention for the middle ot J uly, wbich has usually been held as late as September, have for their object the deleat of Mr. Schleicher, the present representative, we sincerely hope they will not suoceed. We have not agreed with Mr. Schleicher iu all that he has done, and most certainly have disa greed with him in reference to his course on tbe Army bill; but apart from a few idiosyncrasies of that na ture, which seem to have been shared by the entire delegation, he has made one tho most useful, reputable and in fluential members the Democratio n.irtv has had. He has now attained an acknowledged rank, and will be much more useful in the next congress I than any new member could hope to be J no matter how pronounced nis laienis. Itia a rreat mistake to constantly ro tate good men out and untried men in a mistake wbich the old south nev er made, and which the Republican purty has had the good sense also to avoid, we would naraiy Know iir. Schleicher if we saw him: but we do know that he reflects credit upon the Democratio party, and can be of more service to his state than any two new members they can select Houston Telegram: A gentleman residing in the prairies west ot the citv savs that of late years he has ob served the appearance of species of birds new in this region, and never be fore known here. An instance in par ticular he mentioned, that a beautiful black bird with yellow bead and breast, who is a stranrer in these parts of nature s kiordom. Tbe bird of paradise, never koowa here by the old settlers, is also becoming Try plenti ful, having evidently migrated from other places on earth's surface. APPLETON'S CfUOPADIA, New Eevised Edition.
