send sample copies of the Free Press,

Tbo Free Pbebu, true to its nn

it for the campaign, oyer four months,
for only Fifty Cents. We. ask the

large lists of new subscribers at this

an Jacinto Day I
To-day bthfl anniversary of the
battle of San Jacipto, which made
Texas an independent Republic and
Afterwards a sovereign State of the
American Union. It is fitting to
jnote ft further fact or two in this con
nection. General Sam Houston led
in that battle and afterwards for many
years the civil government Under
'bis wise administration Texas grew
and prospered. But at last, because
,of bis devotion to the principles of
Jeffersonian and Jacksoninn Deaio

We clip the above from the Cresset
of last week, not for the purpose of
criticising but of endorsing it We
do not hesitato to say that it is full
of truth and well expressed. And
"Seize upon Truth, wherever found,
Among our friuudu, anioug our foe,"
is our motto. It is true the Cresset
is rather a lato convert to the Free
Sohool cause, but we who fought for
it when to do so was to excite pre
judice and make bitter enmities, will
not quarrel with its later advocates
on that score. In fact we find en
couragement from tho Cresset's ad
mission, coming from such a source,
that "the question of the permanen
cy of a publio school has ceased to
bo an experiment from wuicn wuat
is further stated by the writer inevit
We will add that while wo have
not looked particulars into tho sub
ject we are told by one bettor post
ed that if a high school is made a de
partment of our public school, the
State will pay the principal of the same.
Also that with full accomodations
and attention we shall be in a posi
tion to claim a part of the Peabody
fund, and thus the proposed im
provement would bo commendable on
tho scoro of actual economy, ns well
as in all other respects. All the child

Card From John A. Howell.
Ed. Fbkb Pbess: I regret that duty to
myself impels me to solicit the use of your
columns to make a Btntement of facts to the
publio, that I may refute a slnnderons and
mnlicioas attack made upon me by the
editor of the Cresset, in issue of his
paper of Maivh 9th, in which he alleges
in effect thnt I had stolen away from Sau
Marco, Waving unpaid board bills, numer
ous and suudry debt bebiud.
While I have no dexire to enter into a
discussion or have any trouble with this
self-styled champion of publio aud private
right. I take this opportunity to deny and
denounce the whole affair a malicious and
ungeutlemauly. made with the evident In
teution of reflecting seriously upon tbe
character of one who never harmed him
either by word or action, and without re
gard for the fncts or a cause to provoke it,
and one. too, whose every step in life is
open to investigation, and who can estab
lish a good reputation for honesty, sobriety
and integrity as the aaid editor dure. Where
he obtained bis information that I was in
debt for board I am at a losa to know, but
whether he culled it from the poisoned lips
of some street gossiper. or incutwtM and
hatched it in hi own office it ia a falm-bood

induce him to retract he has added insult
to injury, by refusing my communication as
