' And now the village of Ruling has tat'on a big stride ahead in the news naner business, the Signal having put in a Campbell press and enlarged to 8 columns to the page. We trust the enterprise may turn out to be one de manded by the business of the place, and prove "healthy" in its results to the aspiring management The Columbus Citizen, the only paper in the populous and wealthy town of Columbus and oouuty of Col orado, while noticing the Cresset expresses the opinion that "two papers are rather an over-crop for San Mar cos." Tho Citizon has outlived many competitors, in a town and county which would eeom to invito oompeti tion. A scandal is now going the rounds of the press to the effect that Mrs. Garflold bud er papers filed for a divoroe from her husband, just prior to the oouyentiou which nominated him for the Presidency ; and that the charms of the White House induced her to withdraw the suit AH of whioh is probably false, but if true, what is gained by going to the grave vard for such a scandal t We notice the Austin Statesman is less devoted to agnosticism " un der the new management than it formerly was. Also that while not fyoring prohibition, it has the good UpU and. good sense to recognize the movement as a ino?t respectable and formidable one. Also that it favors the Blair Educational bill, for good reasons given. Ve note these changes in the Statesman with pleasure.

The author ia professor of English in South western University, George town Texas, ao there was a fitness in his selection of his subjoct, and as the sdilress proves, a fitnosi also in hm selection for the position be Lolds. Ho did tho proper thing to huve the addrcsa wijoly circulated in print, for iU merit can only be fairly esti mated ou careful persual. It is a plua for devoting moro time and at tention to the study of our own language and literature, and giving it the preference over that smattering of tho ancient languages which now engrosses so much of the course in our schools and colleges. The ad dress is full of good points which we would like to copy if we had the spiice. Wo doubt if any other address before our Institute would road bo well, or thus prove itself as finished and scholarly as this of Prof. Calla way. The letter from Southern Califor nia on our first page gives a charming pioturo of that favored clime. But a Hingle sentence or tho letter speaus volumes as to the "shady siJo," viz: "Something to do is the great cry, and hundreds can get nothing." Such a land must be anything but a paradise for the poor man. Califor nia early fell under the sway or land monopolists, and to day " the trail of the Berpont is over it all" Texas here tofore has beon favorably distinguish ed a ft land of genuine democratic equality j that is her highest boaft: and though political knaves in bigb plaoes are seeking to pervert it after the California model, we have faith to believe that the agricultural and la boring classes, resident and immi grant, as intelligent voters will bo ahle to "hold the fort against tho laud grabbers, cattle barons, railroad synaioates ana ail similar iocs ui free institutions, Rev. Dr. Ditzlor, well known in San MarcoB and Texas geuerally, writoa to tho Christian Advocate as follows: I have watched the prohibition movement in Texas. Well done for your course ; fight the good fight of faith. Thoy ask how much money will prohibition keep out of the troasury per annum. They wish to Bcnre the people on the money ques tion. Let our friendsi ask how muoh irwmnv will it save to the troasury by infinitely lessoning criino, byarresting tho deadly aim or tue revolver, ioruvw sheathing tho dagger, turning the funds of tho laborer into support and profit instead of tho saloon to the ruin of himself and his family. How much will it save to the counties and State when the terms of court, with all expenses of trials, ohanges of venue, deferring of trials of cut throats and highwaymen, when the terms of court are shortened two-thirds by prohibi tion f By the infamous decision of the higher court, drunkenness is in sanity when it murders. Hence any one can feign drunkenness, be seen drinkinS rain-water, if needs be, from a' botUPi swagger and scream in the street, shoot down bis victim it is insanity j he wa.9 drunk, no danger. It is the agony a State feels over the murderous revolver in tho fiendish hands of bar-room bullies, tho ready perjury that stands ready to swear lies black as perdition, murder wit nesses, and, red handed, defy justice, that is arousing the people, and well it may, Well done for Texas in the hope qf triumph, and well done for Texas Advocate.

W "I' I Mir - - OI 6" TT WASIIIXUTOX LOTEK. fnm 0t alr CMtkaial. Wauhnotox. Oct 13, 1881 The President baa been very busy during the past week. As tho short eni(igday betoken the approach of the congrossiouid session, fresh de mands upon hia time aud patience ap jear, and his work perceptibly in creases. Tho number of callers ut his informal receptions grows lurgor every day, and few men could endure the'btrain that Mr. Cleveland aud his private secretary are obliged to daily undergo. But tho former has a ro bust constitution, and as for Col. Lamont, I know of no othor slightly built norvoos man who can accom plish so muoh work, with no apparent fatigue. The President has greatly lightened his work by systematizing all his du ties. He is cool, calm, solr-contaiuod, and naturally industrious, and with a haonv fuculty of concentrating his whole attention on each task in turn, he makes appointments and dismis sals, answers correspondence, trans acts business and receives visitors with eoual facility. He is usually up by 7 o'clock, and breakfasts at 8. Af ter his morning meal, he goos at ouce to the library, where ho spends most of his timo. It is a large elliptical room, on tho top floor of the mansion. Adjoining it are Ins private suite of apartments, and the rcom where the Cubinet meetings are held Col. La mont'a room opens into the latter apartment When the President enters the library, he finds his private secretary waitin? for him, and such letters and papers is require his special attention are ready on his big oaken desK on the bay window. Here he passes several hours iu disposing of the morn ing businoBS, when it i timo for the reception. Tho ante-rooms on the north sido of the Mansion "are full of visitors, who, when the doors are openod, swarm toward the library. They hand their cards to the door keepers (who have quaint collections of cards, some of which are queer and even abBurd). Tho oallevs pass into the library or into the room of the private secretary, for Col. Lainont has almost as many visitors as his chief. For a couplo of hours there is an unremitting rush for admission into the two rooms. Tho Prosident stands up through out. He moves from man to man, and from group to group, having a pleasant word and a courteous reply for all who address him. Even to positive bores be is kindly, and it is pleaHaut to watch him when he finds one of those vara avium who does not want an office. He haB humor and a keon sense of wit, and he laughs easi ly and musically. He has a power of repartee, which must be better known before he loaves the White House. It has served him in many trying and annoying conversations during the seven months that be has been in office. The interviews with many oallers ooncluded, he returns to his desk, where he works steadily, only inter rupted by an occasional oaller who has made an engagement for some hour in the afternoon, until after 5 o'clock. Then, if the weather is pleasant he usually goes out for a walk or drive, He prefers walking, and his favorite stroll is around by the Washington Monument a distance of nearly a mile. Even when driving, be frequently descend from the car riage and walks. He has two car riages, a pretty little victoria and a landau. He owns only two horses, a $1,000 team, and he has been talking about getting a third horse to fill a place in case one of the pair boingin disnosed. He is not especially fond of the equine race, in which respect be differs from bis predecessor, in whose time the stable was full of thorough hreds, and who uRed to four-in-hand. The President never rides in the saddle, probably because of 6ome consideration of averdupois. In former days, when he weichod less than pounds, heorebaok riding was a favorite amusement with him. A Western Senator, who was here during tho wot-k, says be has heard very little about the Republican Sena tors fighting tho President's nomina tions. He thinks that the President may possibly have a sharp contest over the "offensive partisan issue. but be believes that the Republican Senators could not afford to male any idle opposition to him, and play the part of tha dog in-tha mangrr. A A Southern Congressman who was preat-nt during our interview, says thst it ia Lis opinion that the Pr-i-doct will LT a very sharp figU with tb Senate, H waa anxwu K thia fijtt come- He ai 1 nothing oob! 1 happen which voaM bt betUr for th" iKtrorrtt-.c pty.

Our constitution prohibits the use of money for such purposes. This in dicates a policy. I am, Bir, very respectfully, your obedient servent JNO. IRELAND. It is lamentable indeed that it should be advertised abroad that Tex as does not want immigration. Com ing as it does, mere can oe no qw im nf ita nmvfir to docreat mischief. If tho Globo-Domocrat has a tithe of that honesty which it exacts of otuers, it. will not leave uncontradicted an idea that is so entirely foreign to true Texas sentiment Unfortunately the present constitution is arrayed against immigration 10 ine extext ium ii pro hibits all aid in that direction, but it was the result of a revolution worked by Radical stealing in tbe days or re construction. The policy which it in dicates was given to the state by honest mosBbacks, who, with a few nntnhin ftinimtions. have loner aero been relegated to private life. There is no one thing more universally curs ed from one end of Texas to the othor than bor Rutabagian constitution, ;t ,a hut. ft nncistion of verv short time when it will be dishonored and buried. Texas has a population of about 2, 000,000. It can accommodate 20, 000,000 and still have room to spare. On an. nnO.OOO acres of publio lands elbow room is now claimed by cattle alone. Some day m tue near iumro the policy of settlement will be adopt ed by the state, and this will increase the demand for immigration. Texas wants bone and sinew as well as wealth. The honest sturdy yeoman who comes here may expect aud claim as nearly weioome as tue millionaire. We clip the above from the Fort Worth Gazette. The San Autonio Express also copies the governor's letter, under the caption, "A Black Eve for Texas," and comments as fol lows : Tho letter of Governor Ireland to Horace Baker, published elsewhere, is one of the most unfortunate docu ments yet signed by a governor of Texas. We can stand tho ridicule the governor will bring upon himself through his foarsthatin Texas, which could hold the whole population of the United States and be no more densely populated than Massachusetts is now, the children will soon be jost ling each other for room, but we can not afford to have our material pros perity injured by su oh a rebuff to in tending immigrants. While the press and people have been persistentlv oalling aloud to induce immigrants to come here to assist in developing our undeveloped resources and to occupy our waste lands, the governor of the Btate "turns the back of his hand," aud coldly says to tho intending im migrant he oun come if he wants to ; he won't be driven away. The duty of the press now is to proolaim to the world, what is a fact that iu that let ter the governor does not reflect the sentiments of one in one hundred of the people of Texas. Solemn Wabsinqs.
