Note of Texan Triivcl. Port Lavaca, May 28, 1879, Ed. Free Pkess: To-day wo are almost the sole inhabitants of n otice flourishing seaport and railroud town, whose population onoe numbered by the thousands, have long since desert ed her. Her steamors that onoe visit ed her daily, now land at another port. Her wheels ot commerce that once rolled out all over the whole of West em Texas, from the Colorado almost to the Bio Grande, have long sinoe ceased to turn. Her palatial dwellings where were found blended health wealth and intelligence, are now the haunted homes of the bat and his in separable companion, tho owl. Yet amid all. of this--gloom. and solitude she is lovely, for the hand of nature has made ' her beautiful beyond de scription, which is out of tbe power of man to destroy. Far better had it been for Port Lavaca had she been swallowed up by tho waters of Mata gorda bay or burned to the ground by the torch of an incendiary, than to nave been left standing as she is, re minding each traveler as bo passes by of her former prosperity aud her now almost desperate state of affairs. Abk of bcr few remaining citizens, why all this ruin and desolation, and they will point you to one man (Morgan) as the sole author. "Tell it not iu Ga'li, publish not this withering Bliairie among the nations of the earth," leust they declare that railroads are a curse to thin country. But amidst tbeir own ruins, bereft of fortunes and es tates, in common misfortunes, they still cling to Port Lavaca. But I must change the subject, as our motto is never to stick to one sub jeot or stay in one place any longer than is agreeable to our feelings. We stopped some time bince at a place where every one was going fish ing, and of course we were invited to go with them. The old gentleman of the house said that he had always been very euoceisful, his plan ot fish ing being different from any other, and having proposed to give us lessons in fisbing, we finally consented to go along. After the lines had all been adjusted, the old man said that he had always been in the habit of calling oo a Superior power to ar-t-ist him in catch ing his fish, aud if we didn't adopt the same plan we would never become suc cessful fiVbermen. But, said I to the old fellow, suppose wheo you are down upon your knees in humble supplica tion to that Superior power, a large fish runs away with jour book and line? Well, he says, iny drar loy, have yon never Icarntd that in fixhing as ia every thing elhc, you must "witch a well as prtj?" But this modus operandi aa r ot altcpet'rcr cnneiMent with our former refutation for piety, sv we left Liu to cUih l-'i f.-h i:i abttever manner he c:'!.t ihooe I expect thia t about as much of ihia luff . you can etst.4 at one time, , .valine Imt it fnnl that can't pe!l a word let one rty.i P. J. tV tnlck Msarrlatfe.. Jauuary und May were linked to gether in it waiting room of tho Provi dence & tStonington Bailioad nt ltiuli nioud one day last week. They arriv ed by the eastward-bound train nod walked brinklv across the platform A clergyman was was waiting for them, and a carriage had been engaged ' to take tboin to his residence where tho ceremony was to be performed. The bridegroom hastily inquired when tho next webtward-bound train was due, nd on boing told, that only five min utes would elapse before that evout, he ejaculated: "I am in a hurryl We must return by the next train! Its going to rain! Wo must be married! They entered tho ' humble nailing room. The hands of the clock moved. The station agent suggested that the time was "only two minutes now Just then the westward-bound train rounded tho curve, approaching the station. The bridegroom s agitation was evinced by beada of perspiration on an ample forehead with a few tufts of gray hair all that roinuiuod from tho snows of Eeventy winters. Little May, with the innocence of girlhood in her eves, was in s flutter. The clergyman alone wa eool and self- possessed. "Join hands!" he cried, as the looomotivo shrieked. "You take this man to be your husband?" he de manded sternly, as the engineer gave tho bell rope a vigorous jork. ." Yei whispered ncryous Way, as the train rattled by, with the brakes grinding aud the engine (spluttering. . "You take this woman to be your wife?" asked the clergyman, with bis hand ou the bridegroom's arm. "Yes," quoth January, fumbling his railway pass and taking the spectacles from hiB nose, just as a heavy trunk was dumped on the platform and the locomotive again found its voice. "Then I pronounce you man and wife," exclaimed the good man, and tho conductor's "All aboard" came in like an amen. The bride was bundled into into the car, there was a transfer of silver half dol lurs from bridegroom to clergymau, the hackmnn murmured "Gol darn it I've lost a job," and January was near ly carried off his legs on the platform. In a moment the train-boy cried, "Loz enges here." Tbeir wedding journey bad begun. An Aiuertcaa WirlV. Kxpiutau tints. Olive Logau'a London Letter. I heard ot a rather amusing reply given the other evening at a ball, by a i' American girl in Loudon society, who had strayed away from the ball room. Her mother subsequently dis covered her iu a remote nook with a gentleman, who had his arm around her waist, whilo she rested the tips ot her pretty little fingers on his manly shoulder. "Daughter what's all this ?" exolaimed the iiate mamma. Saucy cheeks looked up calmly and replied: "Mamma, allow me to introduce Capt. X. to you.

Four fifths of the subiecU for legisla- . tion r-pecified in that document, and for which an extra neosioo ia callod fc great expense, wure fully debated and either passed or rejected by the rcpre- seuta lives of the people at the late session.

We hope they' will not per mit themselves to be moved one Jot or tittle from the position they have as sumed in regard to the schools and the public debt. Laws have already besn euacted and approved by his Excel leucy, providing for the maintenance of the Rchools, and the money will le paid into the treasury for that purpose and will there remain, a sacrod fund nut to be diverted to any othor pur pose whatcvor. : Then, if his Excel lency is willing to assume tho respon sibility of collecting this money from tho peoplo und have it lie idle for two years or until the Seventeenth legisla ture moots and appropriates it, so be it, let him do bo.

Orange Tribune.'- We join hands with you on that proposition, Bro. Harris. Toxas' burden of debt may woigh heavily sometimes, but the weiuht that presses hard upon her now is tho weight of crime and vice, the natural results of ignorance. Eduoation is our only hope.

Into hi letter to the celebration ,at Newport, Mr. Garrison incorporated the following remarkable quotation from Chauniug: "I call that mind free which jealously guards its intellectual rights and powers ; which calls do mun master ; which does not content itself with a passive or hereditary faith; which .opens itself lo light whonccsoever it may come ; which re ceives new truth as an angel from heaven ; which, whilst cou.tultiiig oth ere, inquires still mora of the oracle within itself, and tides ioeructkin from abroad, uot to supercede but to quick en aud exalt its own energies. , I cull that mind free which acts no bound to its love , which is not impiisonel in itself or in a sect; which recognizes in all human being the image of God, and the rights of his children ; which delights in virtues and sympathize with the suffering wherever they are seen ; which conquers pride, anger and sloth, aad offers imelf willing viuint to tbe caurie of mankind ; whioh doe not cower to bumau opinion, but feYlS itself accountable to a higher tribunal than man's; which, through cooftJvu- ... . . , - . x,,am mm terDi totrara cer an younz mil aVed: 'I anyone wattiu nnon yoa?
