AUSTIN, TEXAS.
THUSKDAY ----- APR. 26, 1883
The war on gambling houses in
New York city continues.
From all over the state come glow
ing accounts of fine growing corn ana
cotton.
Ireland's troubles are great and
perplexing. There is more than one
Ireland.
Gen. IIazen is after reducing the
number of signal stations, and some
of the reduction will be applied in
Texas.
Tue government's franchise bill in
Canada, introduced recently, gives a
vote to widows and spinsters with a
property valuation of $400.
The proposed prohibitory amend
ment to the Connecticut constitution
failed in the state house of represen
tatives for want of 12 votes.
Tue local Irish societies of Phila
delphia have completed arrange
ments for the land league convention,
to be held on the 25th and 26th.
Tue great new bridge between the
cities of New York and Brooklyn is
said to be the strongest as well as the
most graceful suspension bridge in
the world.
The president felt a malarial touch,
and straightway he started for the
white house, where the thing deals
vigorously with the human form that
is even most divine.
New York's legislature is asked to
extend the principle and methods of
the Pendleton civil service law to
state and local officers. But it is not
said it will be adopted.
Those big lies that have lately cir
culated sov freely in the newspapers
all followed in the wake of Hon
Thomas P. Ochiltree. It shows that
the man's influence is felt.
The New York Times and Post
the Albany Journal and the Buffalo
Express, four of the most influential
Republicans of the state, favor a
radical reduction of the tariff.
The Dallas Herald has obtained all
the non-union printers it needs and
its proprietors will hereafter run their
establishment to suit themselves, not
a set of tramping disorganizes.
Mb. 1'arnell wanted the land
league convention at Philadelphia
postponed uutil fall, that he might at
tend. Now we do know that the Irish
agitator is one of the most modest of
men.
Senator Joseph E. Brown and
wife, of Georgia, are at Hot Springs,
Arkansas. They will remain there
until about the 5th of May .when they
will come to Waco, to attend the
Southern Baptist convention.
Hon. Thos. A. Hendricks has been
telling what he thinks of the next
presidential campaign. He is satis
fled the tarifC will be an issue, but he
does not attach that importance to it
which many do. Probably that is one
reason why importance is not at
tached to Mr. Hendricks as a presi
dential candidate.
Tue Fairiield Recorder is alter
Lieutenant Governor Martin with a
sharp stick for fighting the railways.
It was to his credit that he did not
join in an unreasonable attempt to
cripple the growth of the state's rail
way system. There is yet needed
twenty thousand miles of railway in
Texas
In , consequence of the dynamite
scarce in London, the ' Guards have
been placed, for the first time in two
centuries, in protection of the courts
of justice. There are two sentries at
the entrance to the great hall; a sen
try guards the judges' entrance in
Carey street and Bell yard, while a
third is placed at the door of the
guard-room at Somerset Ilouse.
Archbishop Purcell's tongue is
paralyzed. It is stated that in his old
age and trouble the archbishop's
friends have deserted him, and only a
few of those whom he befriended
when he was at the zenith of his abil
ity and influence visit him now.
Some of his former parishioners come
to-see him, but, strange and pitiful as
it may be, only now and then some
kindly .hearts, touched by the poor
man's condition, make a pilgrimage
to St. Martin's and pay their respect
ful homage to their old friend and
counselor.
The ehairman of the civil service
commission, in reply to certain state
ments credited to him that a whole
sale discharge of government em
ployes on the incoming of a new ad
ministration was not forbidden by
the new civil service law, asserts that
what he said was that the law had
nothing to do with removals; that
power to dismiss from office was not
abridged by the bill, but that all ap
pointments to office must be made
from among those found competent,
without regard to party.
Frederick Nicholls Crouch,
the composer of "Kathleen Mavour
neen," is now lying at Baltimore at
an advanced age. He is in needy cir
cumstances and u movement has
been started by musicians in Balti
more and other cities to make up a
fund for his benefit. Crouch was,
oddly enough, associated with John
Howard Tayne's celebrity as a song
writer, for he conducted the perform
ance in London, of "Clari, or the Maid
of Milan" in which "Home, Sweet
Home," occurs. He came to this
country with Max Maretzek in 1849.
The report for the past year of the
Society for the Preservation of the
Irish Language states that at the
commencement of the present century
probably not more than 400 persons
could read and write Irish, whereas
this society alone had disposed of
more than. 62,000 elementary Irish
books. . Their publications continue
in great demand. The number of
persons in Ireland who speak the old
language is nearly 950,000, as against
nearly 818,000 in 1871, although the
population has during that period
diminished, in round numbers, 252,000
souls. This, as pointed out, is nearly
equal to the number of Welsli people
speaking "Welsh. "Not only," it Is
observed, "has Leinster increased in
the number of Irish Bpeaking inhabi
tants, but Dublin has made a consid
erable advance in this respect, partly
fulfilling the old Irish prophecy."
STRENGTH IJt THE ISSUE.
While the speech of Carter Harri
son before the Iroquois club at
Chicago may have been the result of
too much champagne mixed with
genuine bourbon, it has at least waked
Democrats up to the life there is in
vital issue upon which hangs, more
than upon anything else, the life of
the two great contending political
parties in this country. The indiscreet
speaker, no doubt, soon repented of
his utterances and would now gladly
recall them, but this temporary dis
affection cuts no figure in results,
except that it awakes anew the sen
timent that pervaded the country last
fall, when state after state were
unexpectedly redeemed from Repubr
lican thralldom, when dismay so seized
the minds of Republicans that the
struggle of 1884 was already recog
nized as lost - to them. Democrats
who accept with alarm the declara
tions of Mr. Harrison may at once
suppress tueir anxiety. Last fall the
tenth congressional district of Texas
experienced just such anxiety; it was
said a Democratic element in this dis
trict would wield a powerful influence
against a tariff forrevenuo only and
the Bchism appeared to be complete.
Yet, when election day came it was
found that Democracy instead of los
ing upon this issue, had abso
lutely made inroads upon the enemy,
and the majority, instead of being
two thousand as was anticipated,
ran up to over three times that much.
The issue was made squarely on tariff
for revenue only, and in a district
composed largely of Democrats, said
to favor protection at least for wool,
the result was absolutely startling.
Democrats have nothing to fear from
the agitation of this question. A
few votes may be lost, for interested
motives, but it is a vital issue coming
home to all consumers regardless of
party affiliation, and he who runs may
read that the masses will follow in
the wake of cheaper living and cheap
er clothing, that the farmers and
mechanics will vote for cheaper uten
sils and tools, the housekeeper tor
cheaper household and kitchen
furniture, and all must understand
that the business men of the country
will hail with pleasure cheaper ne
cessities, that there may be- more
money in the hands of consumers to
be expended in luxuries. .No possible
degree of animation and interest that
can be imparted to the tariff discus
sion can injure Democracy. It will
cause bewilderment and disintegra
tion, certainly, but only m the ranks of
Republicanism, where it is desired.
It was discussion of this very ques
tion that gave victory to the Demo
crats in the late congressional elec
tions, won the next house and wrung
from their opponents valuable con
quests in five or six northern states,
without losing one inch of Demo
cratic ground in the west or south.
It is this very issue that the
country is becoming Democratic on.
The tariff is the only living issue
before the country. Take it away
and there is positively nothina: be
tween the parties to dispute about.
One by one the Democrats have
wrenched from their opponents all
their constitutional positions held ten
years ago. They have extorted from
the supreme court and Republican
administrations a surrender of all the
false policies and practices born din
ing the reconstruction period. Re
publicans still cling with palsied
hands to their protective war tariff,
while Democracy, supported by the
manifest voice of the country, de
mands that it, too, be surrendered.
Certainly this is no time to become
alarmed because a gentleman talked
freely and disconnectedly after en
joying himself for some time at the
convivial board. Suppose the
tariff does create differences
in the Democratic party :
will its agitation not create dis
affection in Republican ranks? The
Republican party is a high protective
organization, with a large an d rest
less malcontent faction against pro
tection. The Democrats are a tariff
reform party, with a very small and
thinly spread high protective element
in it. Admitting, therefore, that an
exacerbation of the tariff discussion
would create schisms on both sides,
surely such a rearrangement is not to
be deprecated by intelligent and
thoughtful Democrats, who clearly
perceive that their party must achieve
its restoration to national ascendancy
in 1884 on this issue, if it then achieve
it at all. The Democrats are menaced
with a peril, which nothing but
a sharp, intense tariff discussion
probably can .- exorcise-'-the elec
tion of Mr. Randall of Pennsylvania
to the speakership of the next house,
On the only living question of the
day, Mr. Randall is in conflict with
his party, in that rtepect is a Republi
can, and it were better for the Demo
cratic future that a Republican were
chosen speaker of tue next house than
he, since he is a high protectionist,
and a Republican could be nothing
more. Mr. Randall deprecates a main
tenance of the tariff discussion be
cause it will interfere with his
schemes of election; but for that very
reason nine out of ten Democrats
may well desire to have it made as
sharp and intense as possible. It is
an issue full of strength and promise
to them, and capable, if managed
aright, of being made an agent of de
struction to their opponents.
It is thought that the "yerba mate"
of Brazil and the Argentine States
might be cultivated successfully in
this county. The plant is an ever
green, resembling the orange or the
coffee tree, and the leaves when cured
are ready for Tnaking a tea,
widely used in South America. It is
a most powerful stimulant, and when
taken to excess intoxicating. Its use
on long journeys prevents hunger .and,
as the writer knowe, it is only neces
sary to drink.mate and draw in one's
waistband to travel great distances
without experiencing hunger or fa
tigue. We are satisfied it could be
grown in Texas with success. The
trade in this product in South Amer
ica is considerable, as the state
ment of its importation into the
Argentine Republic shows. In
1876, 1,607,368 kilogrammes, valued at
$547,407. crossed the frontier from
Paraguay, and in 1S81, the aggregate
importation - amounted to 5,175277
kilogrammes, worth $691,193. During
the same year Brazil sent to the Ar
gentine Republic 8,354,413 kilogram
mes, valued at $1,075,868. The im
ports of tea and coffee combined, for
1881, were only 2,175,501 kilogram
mes, valued at $811,214. From these
no-ures it will be seen that the con-
I sumption of mate far exceeds that of
I both its rivals. Probably an attempt
will be made to cultivate it in the
southern states and in south Califor
nia, and if it can be successfully accli
mated a valuable product will be
added to the list of our staple articles.
Mr. Hendricks, Indiana, thinks
Cox, of New York, would make an
admirable speaker.
Mayor Edson, of New York,
made an argument before the com
mittee on cities of the legislature, in
favor of his bill clothing the mayor
with the power to appoint chiefs of
departments and commissioners, and
depriving the board of aldermen of
the right to confirm the nominations
of the mayor. He said the present
system is demoralizing and dangc rous
to the public interests, because agree
ment between the mayor and present
confirming power must necessarily be
based upon compromise and conces
sion. The growing desire appears to
be to" put an end to the exercise of
power that demoralizes the public
service and degrades the character of
public servants.

So overcome with grief was a Fall
River man at his wife's funeral the
other day that it took two men to re
strain him from jumpinar into the
grave with her. On returning to the
house her will was read, and when he
found she had left him none of her
individual property he dried his tears
and wept no more. One month after
this event he led a freshly-made
widow to the altar, having first, how
ever, learned that her husband had
given her all his possessions before
he died. .
John Nelson, the inventor of the
knitting machine which is now ex

number of articles, many of which
have proved very usetul. J; or some
time past he has been at work per
fecting a new improvement on his
celebrated knitting machine, and had
overtaxed himself. He leaves a wife

The reason-given by the Mclvers
for their retirement from the Cunard
company is their opposition to the
building of any more enormous ships
of the Servia type. They are emphatic
in their opinion that the hew steamers
are not suited to the Atlantic trade.
They entailed, both in construction
and maintenance; too vast an expen
diture to allow of an adequate profit
on the working. The Servia. they
say, is a white elephant; but one white
elephant might be endured. V hen it
came to repeating the mistake several
fold they could no longer acquiesce.
Hon. Jefferson Davis recently told
Mr. Morgan, of the Boston Herald,
that he does not like to be interviewed
because he is "constantly being
abused, maligned and vilified by the
press." He further said in a recent
talk with a reporter: What is due
from me in the way of hospitality I
shall oe only too glad to extend to
you; out we must let politics alone.
I am not a public man, nor am I pul-
lic property. I am not a seeker for
office, nor is any office seeking me. 1

Dr. A. P. Peabody, of Harvard Uni
versity, preacher and teacher on mor

touching the promotion of intemper

dy for intemperance is to make drunk

about a state of public feeling in
which drunkenness and all approaches
to it shall be looked on with detesta

The Dallas Herald has been put to
some inconvenience this week by
a strike among the printers on that
paper. It is stated that the punters
refused to work under a foreman who
was not a "union" printer, and uncer
emoniously left the office. The pro
prietors positively refuse to again em
ploy the strikers, which is the right
course, and will be heartily endorsed
by every employer who desires to
manage his own business. These
trades unions are a nuisance, and do
far more harm than good, and cause
much unnecessary suffering more to
the strikers than any one else.

THE VETERAN ADDRESS.
Delivered by Maj. Joe II. Stewart at
Belton.
Texas Soldiers of 1S35-6 and the Widows of Old
Texas Soldiers, Ladies and Gentlemen:
I feel at this moment as if I were
at some holy shrine. What an honor,
standing here almost in my youth, to
be called upon to speak to you.
When quite a boy I visited the
Smithsonian institute at Washington
and, alone and without a companion,
prompted by curiosity, entered the
various rooms and apartments of that
institution. At length I found myself
ushered into a large room, perhaps
eighty feet square and fifty feet from
floor to dome, and I saw the whited
walls hung with the pictures of dis
tinguished Indian warriors, adorned,
with war paint and feathers and
human scalps dangling from wampum
belts. Each eye seemed firmly fixed
on me and I felt, in my boyish fear,
as if confronted by living red men.
At that moment I remembered all the
thrilling accounts I had heard and
read of these men of the forest the
occasion inspired the remembrance
and reflections.
Looking now into your faces, I aiu
alike impressed with this occasion.
These wrinkled brows, snowy heads
and trembling limbs; these sunken
eyes, gleaming yet with the sunbeams
of patriotism, impress me with the
magnitude ot this presence, and 1
realize that I am, at this hour, stand
ing in the presence of the grandest
living heroes of one of the greatest
political revolutions hitherto known
among the children of men.
buch a collection ot the living por
traits .of men of three score years
and ten, penciled by the v ery master
hand of the universe, it has rarely
been the privilege of men to behold
since the days of the prophets and
patriarchs of the olden time.
L shall not allude in detail to the
historical events in the early days of
Texas that grand temple erected by
you and the dead heroes of the young
republic, within whose walls all the
liberty-loving men now living and to
come hereatter may gather cour
age and inspiration, and upon
whose polished walls your pictures
win nang wnen nans are eaten with
rust, when cords and tassels are
broken an'd when - marble structures
are crumbled into atoms and dust.
Yes, that temple of imperial struc
ture whose foundation stones are laid
deep and sure on the rock of ages and
whose dome now grows and swells
towards heaven and eternity. I would
only wipe the dust from its plain,
oiti. nooie urns.
Every nation has had its heroic pe
riod and its heroic race. "The heroes
of Bexar, of the Alamo, of Goliad, of
San Jacinto and the Texas Revolution
furnished the heroic race for Texas,
and the revolution 1835 and 1836 was
her heroic period.
The heroic age is that time distin
guished above all others by a concur
rence of grand agencies with grand
results by uncommon examples of
the rarer virtues and qualties of man,
tried by an exigency that occurs only
at the beginning of new epochs, when
the great bell of time sounds out an
other hour.
The heroic race is that one in the
course of history which is recognized
as the great agency to kindle and
feed the moral imagination, move the
heart and command the intelligent
wonder of the world for all time to
come.
Such an age was the Texas Revolu
tion, such a race was that which
fought the enemy upon her then
trackless prairies.
That was not the age of the looking
glass, of dainty appetites and of gen
tle manners. Sam Houston, like
Achilles, sometimes cooked his own
scanty meal. Men then, and women,
too, wore blue denims and buckskin;
they may have seemed to possess no
ray of fancy, no emotion of taste;
others may have had a quicker eye
for the beautiful in art, may have
contributed more wit, more song
may have worn more decorated armor
in battle yet, their lives and deaths
have been a whole Iliad in action
grander, sweeter, of more mournful
pathos, of more purifying influence
than anything yet sung by old or
modern bard.
In 1835, Mexican oppression and
domination became so insupportable
that revolt and arms were the only
recourse for free citizenship within
the borders of Texas, and the few col
onists staked life and fortune upon
the hazard of independence. All
brave and loyal hearts throbbed in
tenderest sympathy for the little band
struggling for life and freedom.
Tennessee sent her Ed Burleson,
her Davy Crockett and her James H.
Swisher; Georgia her Ward and
Rusk, her Lamar and Fannin;
Connecticut her E. M. Pease; Mis
sissippi her Stephen H. Darden; South
Carolina her Travis and her Bonham ;
Louisiana her Bowie and her Sam
McKneely; Kentucky her Ben Milam;
the Old Dominion her Stephen F.
Austin, her William L. Hunter who
pow sits before me bearing the leaden
and bayonet seals 'of Labardie, his
head ripe with years nd honors and
she sent her Frank Johnson, and
there he sits, presiding over your as
sociation like an old and honored
prince of the royal blood; the land of
the Teutons sent her Kleberg; and
hundreds of true hearts gathered
around them and braver and more
loyal men never defended a woman's
honor or espoused a country's cause.
They came from the south, from
the north and the east; from the
banks of the flowing Rhine and the
land of the green shamrock, to con
test' the palm with the imperious
and' eager foe. They came not for
help or sordid gold, for the infant re
public was
Too poor to possess the precious ores,
And too much of a stranger to borrow.
The world, in all the ages, has fur
nished no grander exemplars of chiv
alry, self-abnegation and God-like
manhood. Young men, just in the
untold delights of a honeymoon,
kissed their tender brides a sad fare
well and left to join the'patriot band
that were then here fighting for free
dom. A legend tells of an impetuous
young father and husband who had
heard the tales of woe and danger
that went out from the women and
children of this land; for a moment
he looked down into the cradle upon
his first-born, that had just learned
the first lisping accents of baby-hood;
on bended knee he kissed the boy,
arose and wiped the tears, at parting,
from, the"eyelids of his fond wife and
then, speechless with emotion, turned
his face towards Texas, and, with
quickened footsteps, sought the gory
field of battle he now sleeps upon
the banks of the Salado river, and at
each nightfall a mourning ash tree
sings his requiem ; and for nearly half
a century, a woman, now gray, of
sweet but sad face, clad in weeds of
mourning, has made annual pil
grimages to that hallowed spot.
I see now troops gathering along
the bank of the Tennessee and the
tortuous Chatahooche, away up on
the St. Lawrence, in the glens of
Scotland and on the blue turf of Ken
tucky; I hear the long roll of the ket
tle drum and the shrill call of the
bugle, and the tocsin of Texas is
sounding "To the rescue !" Loving
mothers are saying to brave and duti
ful sons, "Good bye, God bless you;"
loving sisters are wiping watery eyes
and saying, with quivering lips,
"Farewell brother;" sweethearts" are
locked in warm embrace and each
Breathing out the tender tale.
Beneath the milk-white thorn that scents the
ev'ning gale:
And some hopeless, sad but bright
eyed maiden is saying,
My lips refuse to say farewell ,
For in that word, that fatal word,
Howe'er we proriuse, hope, believe,
There breathes despair.
A thousand prayerful lips and
swelling hearts are invoking God's
choicest blessings; for months, aye
years, tender hearts yearned for the
derjarted loved ones; sorrowful yet
hopeful eyes each day eagerly watch
at the gloaming along the old accus
tomed paths, anticipating a return or
the departed -and thus many a sad to
morrow came ana went. -
And did the husband return to his
fond wife, a son to a prayerful mother
who had confided his keeping to the
god of armies and battles, the sweet-
I heart to the bosom he had so often
! restea upon in the fruition of a re
jquitedlove?
I Sound the muster roll and let t.hn cl.
lent response answer; the dry bones
: at Goliad, the Alamo and at San Ja
cinto, and even on your own spark-
mig jsaiaao, ten their own brave but
pituui story.
- But you and those imperishable
dead bones planted here the tree of
liberty thus it became watered with
the blood . of human hearts.
Though for a time swayed by
au verse w mus.mai wee oent its roots
down below the drought of frost and
anarchy; its trunk went up erect, not
riven by the storm; soon the ever
green unfolded its branches and it now
affords a welcome shade for the op
pressed and liberty loving of all the
people of the earth.
And, where lies the true greatness
or grandeur, in the civilization itself
or the primal human agency that pro
duced it? It is to them that strike
the first blow and blaze the road to
progress ami civilization. The char
acter of Martin Luther will live in
history when Henry Ward Beecheris
quiet in oblivion; the name of Gut
tenberg will be cherished when the
painteraand typesetters of the present
civilization are clothed in the dark
garb of utter forgetfulness; the name
of Columbus will be a towering mon
ument when that of the commander
of the steamship Great Eastern is
crumbled into impalpable powder; the
name of Morse will electrify the com
ing ages, while those of the presidents
of the Western Union and other om
nipotent telegraph corporations are
blotted from the minds of men;
the names of Austin and
of Fanin, of Bowie and Frank John
son, of S. W. Blount and Sam Hous
ton, of Wm. L. Hunter and Deaf
Smith, of Davy Crockett and Ed.
Burleson, of Moses Austin Bryan and
Walter P. Lane, and the men now be
fore me who blazed the road to our
advancement and civilization, will be
spoken with veneration and blessings
a hundred generations after the great
men of this day in Texas are discarded
rrom the pages or history.
Then, whence came these choice
blessings to Texas '4 What human
agency poured this priceless "treasure
into the very laps of the two millions
of people that now dwell within these
borders? You and your comrades in
the early days of Texas were the in
struments, under the direction of a
wise Providence, to create this civili
zation and unfold our destiny. You
and the courageous wife that followed
your fortunes made these prairies.
these rivers, these hills and valleys
almost sacred by your woes, your pri
vations, your heroisms. Men then,
footsore and hungry, marched daily
with feet unshod and nightly slept
ifpon untented fields; women of high
birth and of gentle manners gathered
no thornless flowers of comfort and
ease, but they challenged the howling
blasts of the prairies, the tomahawk
of the savage and the very welcome
of the solitudes.
It, Sirs, is to you and those of your
Spartan band who have crossed over
the river, that 1 owe the privilege of
breathing to-day this balmy Texas
air, of resting in the soft rays of her
bright sun, of looking down upon
these valleys which might seem to
have been hollowed out for the very
home and dwelling place of liberty.
Forty-seven years ago this day, a
vanquished foe lies bleeding on the
banks of the San Jacinto. A few
hundreds of ragged and hungry men
are the victors over the thousands of
skilled foreign soldiers, already sur
feited with treasure and human
blood their proud general on bended
knee, hoping for that quarter and mer
cy so foreign to his own heart and so
little in keeping with his own mode
of warfare. On that evening the
very heavens smiled, and, for the first
time, the sun went down on this lib
erated, sovereignty. In its broad
sense, Texas was then free. From
that good hour, these people have
been governed by magistrates of their
own selection, under laws framed by
their own agents.
The so-styled "Napoleon of the
West" no longer dictates your policies
or commands your battalions; here
now smiles an independent, peaceful,
law-abiding, well-governed common-.
wealth.
Th msands shall spring from your
loins and trace back with pride and
lineal love their blood to yours. - Cen
turies hereafter, in great cities, from
tribes of a common Israel, shall come
together the good, the eminent, the
beautiful, to remember you and learn
the lessons of your unexampled hero
ism. Your influence will endure here
for ages and, until the morning stars
sing together, your names will be
spoken with gratitude and venera
tion. And shall the state refuse to out
stretch her arm, once weak but now
strong, made'so by your valor, to ten
der that bounty your noble achieve
ments so richly earned ? Shall
the millions remain locked
and bolted in the state treasury while
the widows of dead Texan spartans
are almost without food ana raiment ?
Just here I will state that it was my
pleasure to prepare and have intro
duced and earnestly labored before
the legislature just adjourned to pro
cure the passage of the law granting
you the meagre pension of $150 a
year; and, strange to you as it may
seem, many obstacles were placed in
the way. The men of gray hairs and
tottering footsteps, with exceptions,
opposed your demands against the
state while a very large majority
of the young men and let it be said
to tneir nuuur were your lrieuus
and stood between you and the older
members like "a pillar of cloud by
day and a pillar of fire by night." The
oldest member of the senate refused
to recognize your rights, while Mr.
Matlock, the youngest, was your
earnest advocate. The lower house
furnished like examples of gratitude
and patriotism on the one hand, and
niggardly economy and base ingrati
tude on the other the oldest members
voting against your just demands, and
the youngest standing by you with
unsheathed sword battling ior your
rights.
You, sirs, merit of Texas her high
est honors and richest rewards. She
may offer her bounties and pensions
in simple morsels, but she cannot cir
cumscribe the memory of your deeds
and achievements. There is now no
marble shaft uprisen in the Pass of
Thermopylae, but Leonidas and his
brave band will live when the law
makers of Athens and Rome are in
double oblivion. Nothing, save "the
wreck of matter and crush of worlds,"
can destroy the monuments reared to
your valor, for they are and will ever
be in the hearts of men".
I cannot forget that this is your
festival, which you have journeyed so
f ar lo keep. I have, therefore, spoken
briefly. Until this hour I never
looked into many of your faces, and,
perhaps, but few of you, until now,
ever looked into mine. It is likely
we may never meet each other again
In this life, face to face. Your golden
sands of life are nearly run out, mine
are but midway the glass. Many of
you are now leaning upon your old
and well-worn staff, and the next
reunion for some now before me
will not be in this beautiful city, but
in the great city beyond the stars
there to hold converse with Bowie
and Crockett and Houston and Rusk
and other, kindred spirits, and to cele
brate another and a grander independ
ence day.
Heaven bless the grand old Texas
soldier and the noble wife who shared
his privations, his fortunes; and may
no man ever be permitted to dwell
upon Texas soil, to rest his head upon
her generous bosom, or to sleep be
neath her green, velvet sod, whose
heart does not vibrate with swelling
emotions of gratitude to the veterans,
living and dead, of the Texas Revo
lution. Empty Headed Assertion.
