It also shows that the uncollected interest on said fund which the law requires shall be collected annual Iy now amounts to $5,G30.44. This is a part of the available school fund, intended for the support of the publio schools. In addition to that there is shown in the re. gnlar Sohool Report a deficit of $483.38, making a total of SG.068.82 thus far held in abeyance from the support of our publio schools, until collected or replaced irom some other souroe.

Some time age the Alamo Monument association through Gen, H. P.

Bee, Vice President Alamo Monutuout Association: Deab Sib The kind invitation of tho Alamo Monument association to deliver an address before the Chatauqaa association at San Maroos, upou the fall of the Alamo, on July 8 next, has been received. Some years ago I made a resolution not to accept invitations to deliver addresses and, have bad no difficulty until now in keeping the resolution. But an oocasion like this the opportunity to address TexanH upon such a theme while there yet live survivors of the great revolution former comrades in arras of the patriots who died for Texas liberty, is one too grand to forego. I aocept the flattering invitation with great pride and pleasure, notwithstanding fear the that I may not boablo to meet the expectations of my friends, muoh less to rise to the height of my desite. Respectfully and truly yours. Beth Shepabd. A Pleasant Note. The following is in all respects so well and pleasantly expressed that we cannot forbear sharing it with our readers: We heartily reciprocate the good wishes of our cortespondent, Mr. Julian : I intended or rather wished to write you last week samething in regard to the public school prizes previouily mentioned in the Fbeb Pbess. AU the winners to whom you referred were pupils under the immediate care of the Priucical. Other teachers also gave prizos, and I have the pleasure to state that onr little daughter won a orize uuder Miss Wilcox in her hiuhetit crude, and our boy, very recenMv seven, was rewarded by his teacher for "the best written story on The Deer'." It would afford me great pleasure to show you the little fellow's manuscript, but it was sent to "Grandmamma," and has not been returned Nor will it be in time to send you soon, as they are now looking for ns to follow. We leave for a two months' visit to Miss. snd Cm. this week. Success to Chautauqua, which I greatly regret missing, especially this critical sea son, Mav the Fbeb Press have a run of pros perity, and reach me promptly every week while I remain at my father's in ueorgia.

Yes, Byron, after long and patient waiting, has "made bis calling and election sure." The Fbeb Press extends congratulations and good wishes to tho happy pair.

Mr. Coleuian, of New Orleans, has been spending several days here, visiting Irs ilaughter, Mrs. M. C. Young. Our readers will remember that he took iu our town a year or so ago, en route home from Los Vngelca. His favorable impression of San Marcos at that time continues, aud he anticipates a bright future for her. Wo hope be finds bis stay here ploasant. Among the samples of handsome work in Nauco's marble yard, which we receully referred to we noticed a very handsoum and appropriate one for Miss Mamie Hop. kius, auotlier which we wero pleased to si e for tho venerable Capt.

July 8 will be Alamo day at the Chuu tauqua, and Hon. Both Shrpard will do. liver tbe oration, and the Monumental as sociation will have the karporama of the Alamo, prepared for the Bprlug Palaoe. ou the grounds. "The Hymn of The Alamo, by Potter, will be suug by a large number of the the most talented singers In the state. We give the hymn below. It seems to have been modeled after the Mareeillaise- 'Ittael man the wall onr clarion's blast Now sounds iU final reveille This dawuiua morn must be the last Our fated band shall ever see. To life, but not to hope, farewell. Your trumpet a olaug and cauuon'a peal, And stortuiuii shout, aud clash of atoel Is ours, but uot our country's kuell. Welcome tho Spartan's death 'lis no dospairina strife We fail we die but our exphing breath Ia freedom's breath or lire. nere on this new Thermopylae Our mouument shall tower on hiuh, And "Alamo" hereafter be Ou bloodier fluids the battlo cry." Thus Travis from the rampart criedi And when hia warriors saw tne foe Like whelming billows move below. At once each dauntleea'heart replied: "Welcome the Spartan's death 'Tie no despairing strife We fall we die but onr expiring breath Is freedom's breath of life!" They come like antumn lea fee they fall, let hordes on hordes they onward rush, W ith gory tramp tboy mount tbe wall Till unmoors the dofendurs crush. The last was foiled the fight to gain; Well may the rntnaus tiualte to toll How Travis and his huudrod foil Amid a thousand foeuieu alaiu. They died the Spartan's death, But not iu hopeless strifo: Like brothers died-aud thoir expiring.bteath Was freedom's breath of life. The San Marcos Chautauqua.
