AVe hope now that tho weather is getting warmer and pleasanter tho children will all como to our Sunday school. Tho publio dobato last Friday night was a success. We were favored with a largo au dience, aud four enthusiastic speeches and soveral well selocted songs by tho choir en tertained them till a late hour. Eight young men from the audience agreed to join our temperanco organization, the United Friends of Temperance. We wore sorry that Mr. J. L. Andrews, ono of the speakers, could not bo present, as his presence was demanded at San Marcos as a juror in tho county court. The decision was left with tho audionce. Both schools at this place aro still holding forth and seem to be prospering finely. Science Hall. The Latest Craze. Tho demoralizing physical and moral eff ccts of the skating rink craze are becoming more nnd more ap parent. In this city the telegraph and tele phono girls are forhidden to go to the rinks, becauso tho excessive exercise in tho even ing nufits them for their work the next day. In llncyrus, Ohio, the bcllo of the town, worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, eloped with a teacher of tho art of skating, "Prof." Osborne. (She was engaged to a wealthy young man.) Hor aged father was shocked almost to death by the event. For $15,00(1, it is said, tho Professor skated off. and promised never to claim or see the britlo again. Eight physicians, meeting as a nied. it-til committee, spoke of organic diseases brought on or aggravated in young persons hy the practice. Some say "it empties tho Kaloons." If it does, it brings tho ordinary frequenters of the saloons into the aociety of, or close contort with, those Classen that never went near tho saloons. This ia one of its worst features.

Tho noxt Htrong est influence in Lin favor was tho fact Unit Senator Etlmun.lu Agrees with Mr. Buyar.l about his talents and fit- noHs fur tho noet to which ho has boon appointed. It is Btatod at tho Whito Houho that tho nwh of visitors to tho Pros itlcnt biueo tho 4th of March, though Inrce. locs not comnaro with tho o ' - crowds that besiegod Frctutlcnt Gar field daily after bis inauguration. Thoro is ono callor now to a hundred then, it is said. Tho mails received aro about tho Batno sizo as thoso ro ceivod by President Garfiohl, but com paratively fow of tho letters over roach tho President. A big bundlo of lettors is placed upon tho Presi dent's desk several times during tho day. Ho skims them over rapidly, selecting those ho wants to consider himself and turns tho bulk of them over to his socrotary for examination, reference anil reply. St. John's Church promises to bo no less popular with tho now adminis tration than with tho ono just past Tho pew of the ex-President will, at the expiration of tho present quarter, on April 1, bo occupied by Sonatov Evarts. For some time it was thought that Vico-Presidont and Mrs. lien dricks, who, sinco comiug to Wash ington, havo attended tlio church as tho guests of Mr. and Mrs. S. V. Niles, would seenro this pow. Thoy have, however, almost decidod upou identifying themselves with tlio Church of the Ascension. "Brick" Pomcroy is hero with a new newspaper venturo, styled tho Unitod States Democrat. I hear that Pomeroy has his wife and two chil dren with him, and that they have taken a part of tho snifco of rooms so long occupied by General and Mrs. Logan. "Brick" is not half so black lis his own paper paints him, but in his homo life is finite an example of temperance and good habits. Tlio elder of his two children is ft little girl of three, with largo pondering blue eyes and fair hair, and his pride in this lovely child is very marked. One of the employes of tho White House was askod how lie liked the new President. "Well, ho has been a great help to us. When the crowds get so thick irvtho East Boom that wo can't do anything with them the President comes down and shakes hands for an hour or so and thins them out. Ho said if he could help us in this way ho would, and that ho didn't mind shaking out 500 now and then," was the answer of tho appreci ative doorkeeper. The secret of Mr. Cleveland's suc cess so far is that he does not worry or fret about anything. He is evi dently not pulling wires or layiug pipes for future political results. Among tho employes retained at tho White House is tho cook. Before President Arthur retired hegavosuch a good recommendation to his French cook, Chef Fortin, that Pres ident Clovoland at onco retained him. Chef Fortin had a pretty busy time under President Arthur. Ho was li able to bo called upon for a supper always an extensive one at any time of night, while. there was no regular ity about tho daily meals. Breakfast was served to whomsoever was ready for it. at onv timo of tlio moruiu , .. i, -I. fM,, i..r, 1 regularity, as President Clcvehin-1 ; . , , i-i in expects everybody in his household ; , - i i ,,.,: tn lrf rea.lv for breakfast at exactly, . , . . , . tight O clock. j Marshal Jackman, who has x en ' in office alwnt two w-nks hf , rcC(.;TC,l ovfT tjrjht lilllhlrel . - ... applications lor ueputyHUips.

En iMnwa it t wo will remark, that tho last two sentences, as contrasted with our editorial last week, afford a good illustration of tho different ways in which different pcoplo viow tho samo thing. That tho Clay statno is not an Apollo in boauty iB trao, yot a very good dofenso of tho artist is, that it is true to nature, for Clay him self was certainly not handsomo, though tho winning grace of his manner scarcely allowed thoso who met him to think about it. Then tho statuo is not over a dozen feet from tho ground, so does not show to as good advantngo as it would on a high er pedestal. That of Gen.

Tho groat Custom Houko is also near tho levco built of Quine.y Granito, occu pying an entire block, having a fron tage of 3!J4 feet, and is said to bo second in size to no other building in tho country, the Capitol at Wash ington boing.its only rival in point of dimensions, though it is to bo hoped it does not excol tho Custom House in ugliness, for it is certainly without a rival in tho lack of any architectural beauty or attractiveness, though its great marblo business room upstairs, is said to bo tho grandest commercial room in tlio United States. Tho half, or more of the ground floor is occupi ed by tho Post olTico, all other parts by Federal Courts, and various port officers. Tho sito of this building was that of Port Koyal. built in 1702 by Baron do Caroudolet, its guns commanding every approach to the city, as then built Tliroo quarters of a century prior to '92, Bionvillo had a lino mansion adjoining the Custom Houso site, built in what was then a forest, where ho entertained wanderers and tourists in royal stylo; for somo years afterwards tho Urdu lino Nuns used it as a convent Below Canal street is tho older and what is usually called tho "French quarter" of tho city, where there are numerous oddly built houses, much like tiioso common in Franco, Italy and Spain, many of which are orna mented and covored with tiles. This section is crowded with littlo store?, shops and wino rooms aud other "re freshments" adapted to all tastes and the streets are very narrow and not at nil attractive, especially at night when tho gas is turned off, as has been the case for somo timo ow ing to a disagreement between the city and the gas company.

N"cv tho Square is tho French Market, so much written about, devoted to the ale of moats, poultry, fisli, ' vegeta bles, fruits, dry goods, groceries, and everything generally, having three buildings adjoining each othor, erect ed in 1813, and chiefly interesting on account of tho conglomeration of hu manity ono witnesses in it, (or thorn), composed as they ore of every hue, color and shape, and chattering in every tongue, French, Italian, Span ish, English, Gumbo, etc. Tho Mint, built in 183C, is a short -distanco be low tho Market, engaged entirely in coining only tho colobrated "dollar of our dads." in i awxe--aw i i ma Tbo Work of tlio Miiotecuth Legislature. Galveston Nowa. Tho Texas legislature has adjourn ed, after a session of two and a half months, and tho pooplo can now spoculato on tho prospocts of an ex tra session noxt winter, or of no further legislation this side of the reg ular session of the Twentieth legisla ture. It is tho fashion to abuse all legislatures. Abuso of tho legisla ture couuU for littlo, becauso it is al ways expected. In tho present in- Btanco, however, the pooplo of Texas havo some grounds for complaint against tho legislature not so much for what was done, as for failure to undo much that had been previously dono. It is not clear that any rea sonable body of men could not havo dono tho actual work of the Nino toenth legislature in two wooka. True it might bo said that there was not much actual work for tho legislature to do boyond passing tho tax and ap propriation bills. Slill tho fact re mains that each day tho law-makers remained in session cost tho people of tho State a largo amount of monoy, and it would havo beon iu the line of reform to havo adjourned at tho ear liest day possible. It can bo said for tho Ninotoenth legislature that it passod no law having a tondoncy to ineroaso tho burden of tho pooplo to an unduo cxtont No law was passed in the iutorest of any one claBB of cit izens that is likely to prove detrimen tal to any other class. lNo law was nassed in tho intorest of monopolies, and only ft fow acts having a tondon cy to restrict the personal liberty of individuals. On the other hand, en actments of former legislatures that time and experience have proven ' nn wiso were pormitted to remain in force, although thoir absurdity nnd injustice w6Yo fully demonstrated. If the amendment to tho railroad law proposed by Senator Jones had been adopted tho neglect or evasion of the law makers in othor instancos might lie largely condoned. As it is, the businoss centers of Texas are left at a' sorious disadvantage whon compar ed with outside points. In fact, if the work of tho Nineteenth legislature is carefully siftod its wcakuoss will bo found rather in its omissions than in its perpetrations. Boyond the tax and appropriation bills no laws to moot imperative publio requirements were enacted. Tho land law is of tho same general character as that enacted by tho Eighteenth legisla ture, tho difference being that the last effort is more perfect in dotails, though almost as feeble as the former so far as provisions for execution is concerned. So, taking it all in all, it may bo said of tho Ninotoenth logisr laturo that if it failed to do anything exceedingly unwiso or bad, it also failed to do anything greatly wise or good. Its mission, if it had any, was to bo for the most part an organized failure. Harry Smith convicted in Parker county of theft and sentenced to hard labor iu the penitentiary for two yoars was brought down to Dallas and dolivcrcd yesterday to the keopor or boss of a convict train just north of the north of the city of Dallas. He was not brought by the sheriff but by one Hailey a tuansporter of prisoners under a contract .This is the usual way in which the law is disregarded by oflicials in Texas. Admitting that a prisoner is fairly tried and justly convicted, tho sentenco of tho court is disregarded and the convict is held in duranco vilo by power and niado to work without pay in competition with tho ptxir laboring men of tho country. Tho penitentiary is often never seen by a convict, but he is held to work on some rich man's) plantation or by somo contractor and perform his days labor under the muzzle of double barreled shot guns in tho hands often of drunken brutea of a guard, who put a hole in his body as mero pastiim:!
