ISAAC H, JULIAN, Editor. SATURDAY JtJLY 13. Official Paper of Uayi and Blanc Counliei. IndiaH raids into Uvalde and Kim'' bio countiea are announced TntBK is again considerable likeli' hood of a collision with Meiico. TUB office of the Waco Examiner has been destroyed the eeoond time by fire. Supposed to be the work of an incendiary. v Tub noble old hero and statesman, General Jo. Lane, though in his 76th year, has offered his services to the Governor of Oregon, to serve against the hostile Indians now in arms in Eastern Oregon and Idaho. We were a little ahead of time last week in reference to the reoeption of Mr. Schleicher at San Antonio. But it has siooe ooroe off, and was one of the most hearty and inspiring that ever greeted the return home of i faithful publio servant JaiJes Converse. Esq.. was ap pointed May 1, Superintendent of the G. H. & S. A. Railway vioe A. W. Dickinson, resigned. A. W. May formerly Seoretary Texas State Bureau of Immigration under the late lion G. Loeffler, is ohief clerk of said Bail way. The Dallas Commercial says that fiobody ever has or ever can answer the charge that Governor Hubbard was guilty of falsehood when he said that the Burnett check was drawn against a sbipmtut of cotton, when it was proven conclusively that he did not have the cotton to ship and did not ship it. The Baltimore Standard, speaking of the Potter investigation in Louisi ana, says : Toe most shameful and alarming fact in connection with the whole mat ter is that when a Senator charged, on his own personal responsibility, that there was a iraua ot w,wv,wv in tjhertnan'a acoounts ; Mr. Hayes and nearly all the Republicans in Congress voted solidly againBt an investigation that involved a high crime against popular sovereignty by this same Sher man, and not one voice demanded that his accounts should be examined, al though they all knew that he has grown rioh in office, and it the bosom friend of that double faced sooundrel, Stan Icy Matthews. Ta Foarth at Flafoala. The people of Gontales, Fayette, Colorado, Bastrop, Caldwell and La vaca counties assembled spontaneous ly at Flatonia on the Fourth on the invitation of the good people of that thriving burg for the purpose of cele brating the day. At a low estimate even thousand persons were present. It was a model celebration. All busi ness wu suspended, and the "Stars and Stripes" floated from every root. Htill more significant was the fact that Judge Ireland, who three years ago wrote aad published an elaborate article against future celebrations of the 4th, wu ooe of the speakers. As there is a possibility that he may repre sent at in Congress, we rejoice to re ord this "ehaare of heart" on his part. tor with his former views, he would ! have had no inflneaee at Washington. The best SEVENTH Tbi TkrsckMorloa la Wnrcoa. The sncech of this distinguished gentleman at our town on Friday last wu a strong, eolnmon senso enorr, auu made a very favorable impression. In connection with the charge that he wu unfriendly or indifferent to the interests of the frontier, be referred to tho faot that when be first came to Northern Texas it, too, was a frontier region, so the speaker bad early learn ed to sympathise with the privations and sufferings of frontier people. We oannot undertake to give even a syn opsis of the speech, but content our self by copying the part of it relating to the expenses of the State govern ment, as we find it in the Galveston New$, and as substantially repeated at this place: "In 18C7 the population of this State wss 800,000. The taxable value of its property at that time was 1170,000,000, and the rate of taxation was fifteen cents on the 1100. Now the popula tion is nearly three times as great, while the increase in values is almost incalculable. During that year I was the Governor of this State, and as suob, olaim as a distinctive record, the fact that I not only administered the affairs of the government efficiently, but with in the revenues derived from the as sessments. Now the rate of taxation is fifty cents on the $100, and instead of paying the costs of government, we find year after year the debts growing larger and larger, as the credit of the grandest commonwealth on the conti nent growi loss and less. Bondr are sold to meet deficiencies, and bonds and interests are carried forward in the aggregate of the State's obligations, to be met by those who shall hereafter succeed us in the control and manage ment of publio affairs. But this is a question of history with which you are all familiar. The remedy is what you want. Like the single drops of crystal water that come percolating from the mountains and the crevices, of the granite rock that rib its sides, ming ling with the tiny brook that warbles its way to the creeks and rivers that make up the mighty ocean, the little oosta that figure in the aggregate of the governmental expenses may be traced from their consequences to their causes, and if we would stop the outward flow we must dam up the vales and valleys that are now inundated with the full tide of extravagance in official places This is the remedy, and the motto of the future should be, let us live with in our means." Tbe Financial Situation. We find the following just and sensi ble views in an exchange. After show ing how our national debt originated in a military necessity, the writer pro oeeds : But what was boro of necessity need not be nurtured by tbe fostering care of the government when that necessity has passed away. 1 he war is over, as some of our financiers as well as poli ticians need to learn. The Govern ment is no longer in the grasp of a cruel emergency. But itstauds before the world with a credit unexcelled. It has the wealth of a mighty nation and the resources of an unequalled country behind it. It is no suppliant at any creditor's feet. It waits no longer at the money-lender's gate. It is time therefore for it to assert its in dependence and power. The hard bar gain made in an hour of distress should not be continued a day longer than is denominated in the bonds. Every contract made with grasping brokers when the Government was at their mercy should not be allowed to bind tho people a moment longer than the pledge ot tbe nation requires, it may be far from wise to reverse the entire financial policy of the past but it will be wise to undo whatever was forced upon us by necessity and weakness. A correspondent writing from Onion Crek, makes the following good point : "States, counties, cities, and even villages, possess distinctive individuali ties and qualities of character, that are as pronounced and obvious as the dis tinguishing features of individuals; and the press is perhaps, the chief ave nue of delineation. By tho newspa pers, which root in the hearts of a people, and derive their succor and support from' their willing patronage, may be determined much that apper tains to tbe mental, the moral, the so cial, and tho religions status of that people."

Mountain City Item. The funeral of Mrs. Allen, on the 3d, was attended by a large conoourse of people. It shows the esteem in which she was held by the community. The burial service was conducted by the castor. Rev. J. J. A. Roach, assist ed by Revs. D. A. Porter and J.J, Williamson. Mrs. Barton's health has greatly im proved. There is an unusual amount ot mok ness in the community. Dr. Barbee, Mrs. Roach, V. B. Roach, late a stu dent of Trinity University at Tehua cans, James Allen and lady, Mrs. Nivens and others have been on the sick list, bot are all convalescent, ex cept James Allen, who is suffering from rheumatism. Col. Bunton is "on the go" again. Mr. Gomert's school closed last week. He had no special examination, but gave his pupils a supper which I learn was a nice thing. I am told he is rather fond of good eating any way. The children say thev had a nood time. croquet and other amusements being in order. Alexis, Oua P. M.. has handed us a letter from A. J. Roberts, dated Mobile, Ala., June 20, written on behalf of a Mrs. Quimby, who came to that city from Sumter county, Ala., nine years ago with four children, and becoming siok was sent to the hospital, and her children to the ' Sheltering Arms," (some religious charitable institution we BUDDose.) On her recovery, she applied for her children, but was told that on a rumor that tho mother was dead, they had been taken away and she has never heard from them since, Owing to her grief and constant weep ing she became blind. Tbe youngest child was named Virginia Quimby, and she is reported to have died recently, Any one having any information of the lost children would greatly oblige a Buffering and worthy woman by ad dressing the same to Mr. Roberts, as above. A delightful party of young peo ple was held Thursday evening upon tbe lawn f routine the residence of Msj. W. O. Hutchison, in San Maroos; the fruits and delicacies of the season be ing dispensed in tbe open air. The young gentlemen present, beg that Maj. Hutchison and his excellent lady by whose kindly invitation the lawn was used for the purpose, as well as those young ladies who projected the assembly, will accept their hearty thanks for the pleasure afforded by this occasion ; trusting that the success of this is but the forerunner of many more such joyous re-unions. G IO antic land frauds, something like those in Texu, have been discov ered in California. No estimate can at present be made of the number of acres held under fraudulent transfers, but it is thought to smount to millions Tbe San Francisco Chronicle says that many men who stood high in pah lie estimation are known to hart been engaged in the swindle.
