The following synopsis of the Gov ernors message clipped from the) Dallas Herald, we present to onr readers, as we cannot afford to publish the message in full on account of its great length. The Governor's outgoing message, after congratulatory expressions as to the general health and prosperity of tbe State, substantially says rus cen tral idea has been established a Per petual good system of finance. 11ns means the annual collection of revenue through equal taxation on property and persons and its Honest, economical col lection and disbursement The Texas Constitution requires all property to be taxed ad valorem, but income and occupation taxes are permitted, except on the agricultural and mechanical pursuits. An occupation tax is a means of reaching transient property, the subject being the property, not the persons. The drummer's tax as founded, in a just principle, places foreign firms on the same basis as our own. xliese taxes nave Drougni a rrreat increase of revenue to the State. If taxation is to be reduced, let it be in the ad valorem taxes, which bear hardest on te permanent property. There is now in tho Treasury a sur nlus revenue of $8IJ,7G 43. Treas ury warrants are now. paid according to date of registration, and ore at par to-day. All these things are due to tho increasing prosperity and the laws passed by tho last and previous legis lature. Our public free school system annually improves, xnere nas Been a larce increase in the sale of lands, as many as 860,360 acres in the first nine months being disposed of. In Huntsville, at the Normal School 74 pupils were supported last year, and the contribution was $200. It is so successful that I request the the es tablishment of two otbers; one in Northern Texas and one in South western Texas.' The frontier protec tion has been splendidly maintained with $100,000 the last year. Much benefit will flow from the Congression al law Drohibitinsr Indians from com ing into Texaa The credit for this is due to Adiutant-General Jones. This relieves our forces for criminal pur poses. I recommend the levying of small taxes on all nersons who fail to join the militia forces, for the arm of the Government must oe sustained. By examination of department reports it is found that our whole State's ser vices has been efficiently and most economically maintained. I recom mend that aDuropriationg be made to enlarge and improve the Lunatic, Deaf and Dumb Asylums; also for the two penitentiaries, so as to make the latter places of reform and not torture. Our ? . .-a -ii ii lsrore surplus will permit, em mtee needed reonirementa. For the Blind, Deal and Dumb, and Lunatic Asylums and penitentiaries we will need an outlay of $45,000. This will utilize 1.500 convicts within prison walls. The State must not stop half way, but finish the thing up, The Victoria Advocate says Texas is one of the most prosperous States in the Union, and yet she is the banner Democratic State of the South. Her population has mcreased within the last decade so that ner fjongresBioiiai .nnnrfiimmant will allow a sTAUl of 60 i ,,4,. and this nnder Democratic .... ahnwe nar.

In law, Sir Alexander - Cookburn, of England I Chief JustiOB Church, of New xork, and A. T.

France lost Jules Favre, the Duke de Gramont, and Adolph de Cremieuxi Italy, Baron Rioasoli; England, Lord Stratford de Bedcliffe, and Russia laments her Em press.

Formerly it embraced the bunt- mar croundsof the Apaches and Uom ancb.es. Tho wild horse, the buffalo, antelope, bear, deer, and turkey feast ed and fattened upon morion grasses, and were found in vast numbers. When the Fort Yuma stage line was started, and forts were located and occupied, adventurous stockmen es tablished ranches., Then the superior ity of this vast area waa manifest as a gross producing and cattle grazing district The grasses were vastly bet ter and the water more abundant and lasting than in most of the other parts of tbe State. Wnen in 18 (8 it became known that the Pacific Railway Com pany were arranging. to push their rood to a speedy completion, enter prising trranffers becran their encroach ments upon tbe stock ranches. They found the land most sightly to the eye. The wheat corn, cotton, oats, barley, rva. millet and veiretables yielded far better crops than they had anticipat ed, and in 1879, when the drought had caused the great grain and cotton fields of south and central Texas to wither and dwindle away, 'they, with poor tillatre, raised fair crops; the rain fell in season, the grass grew, and the country tbat had been deemed worth less as arable land soon became known as the best in the State. This knowl edge has extended, - the section rapidly filling up, and this year's crop for exceeds that ol IS. 'J.

Tribe George Eliot's appearance has of ten been described, but tha descrip tions do not always bAnwiuio. oh has been ceiled I suppose most rople called her extremely plain, noted wit and writer is reported to have said of her and Lewes that they were both ao ugly it was impossible to believe. any harm of them. r.This " w, a i 1 aharp-tongued person avers inat ae had said it not only of but to ' them. Let us hope his' membry in this mat ter baa played him falsa. t About Lewes' extraordinary tunesa there eoold be bo two opiniooa', Then a not a good feature in his face, yet his face aa awhola waa one which you would look twice at, and which had tanv rate, the merit of not be ing ; oommon-place. .: George , Eliot when you aaw ner in repose, aaa beyond dispute, a forbidding counte nance, jfeopie wno did not iiAe ner usea w Bay bub tooaea tuts wine i a remark I have also known made about a celebrated hving actor.' It was true ao far aa thisi that tha portion below tba . eyes waa dispro nortionateW low and narrow. , She had that square fullness of brow over the eve that 13 Lake had. ana wmon led Blake td affirm that the shape of his head made him a Republic! George Eliot's Radicalism went much further than mere republicanism. She never can nave been a beautiful wo man, either in face or figure. ' She waa tall, gaunt, angular, without any flowing ease of motion, though with a self-possession and firmness of muscle and fibre which saved her from the shambling - ftwkardness often ' the charactenstio of long and loose joint ed people. " There waa no; want of power in her movements nor in tha expression of her elongated visage, to the lower part of which went plenty of jaw and decision of contour. - She was altogether a" personaire whom at first sight the beholder must regard with respect, and whom upon farther acquaintance, it is perfectly possible to find attractive, not from her talk only, which in brilliancy and foroe was marvelously .full, but from her mere external appearance, and still more from her expression and the an imation of her face. Her eyes were, when she talked, luminous and beau. tiful, dark in color and of that unfath omable depth and swift changefulness which are seldom1 to be seen in the same orbs, except In persons whose strength of character and intellect are remai kabje.- They could be very soft, and she smiled with her eves as well as with that Urge mouth of hers; and the smile was full of loveliness when it did not turn to mocking or mark that contemptuous mood, which was not, I gather,! very infrequent with her. In conversation which did not wake this demon of scornfulness, born of conscious intellectual superiority, the face was full of Vivacity and light, whether illuminated by a smile or not I have seen it, when she was talking on a subject that moved her, irradi ated and suffused with deep feeling. A DAttery in a Tight Plaee. A battery of the First Artillery halt ed one night during the Seven Days' Fight in a little clearing. Tha men laid down, unhitching their horses, but leaving them in harness. Tha first sergeant, now an honored officer of the Third Artillery, told me he got up and walked to one side of the clearing. He was halted and turned back by the sentinel. Going toward the other side he was again challenged. Who comes thart . The. voice struck him. He replied, "Friend," and said, "What regiment isthatl" ' The answer came, "Seventh Ala bama," KM-i. "What regiment is that on the other side?" "Fifth Georgia," replied the sen tinel. "What battery is thatt" Here was a situation. The sergeant naturally didn't know the name of a battery in tbe rebel army. Hesitation would have been fatal By a lucky' inspiration ho replied: "One of Stuart s batteries," knowing that Jeb Stuart commanded their cavalry. "Oh," aaid the other, "then you's a hoss UtteryT". - "Yes," said C . "Good night" He immediatelyawoke the Captain, who rather angrily said, "What the deuce is the matter nowT"- "Excuse me, Captain," said tha aer geant, "but we've camped between a Georgia and an Alabama regiment" It is needless to say the Captain got up. uoTBea were niicnea m qrutjuj. and that battery withdrew tturn be I . .. .

Mr. Gould produced his check-book and filled out a check for the amount something mora than $2,000,000 which he handed to Mr. Allen. -, Mr. Allen took tbe cheek, carefully examined it, and said; "This is a large amount to have in one bank.

Every Prinoe of the royal family of Pnuna, whan in youth, is taught some useful trade. Such experience "is supposed to sober, the mind and bring it face to face with tha material world," says a cor rect writer. It does far more than this. It keeps tha royal youth from gadding about, and learning, aa other less favored flash and blood does, tha lMsons of tbe club, tha green-room or corner grocery. Face to face with tha world's material, with a plana or Band sew in hand, man is made better, and, if ha ib honest, work is improved and its results made cheaper, lien or women without trades or an oocnpa tion an as weak in this work! whan humanity not only 'makes mortals mourn but eompels them to work as tha infant in swaddling clothes and have not naif their claim to protection endears.
