THE EXD DUAnsXHJH. The reign of the bloddy shirt is about to terminate, and that sansniuons flag will soon be furled, never again in Am -rican history to be unfurled, let ns Lope, trust and believe. The carnival of official robbery and of licensed rHpaoiousness, .is endal, and the rcutdrselcss leeches that have desolated that fair land, and have, turned her most lertile fields into waste places, have been compell ed to take there sharp and hun gry beak from outlier vitals. For twelve years, official harpies, -with appetites more unappeasa ble that of the fabled vampire, gorging their gluttonous stoni; achs, and revelling in an un checked carnival of theft, have held rninons Bvay. After so many weary years ot depleting rapacity, it will require years of slow convalescence for the State to -acquire strength, and sound health. But it is only a ques tion ot time for her to assume strength and vigor. South Carolina is to be con gratulated on her happy deliv erance from the curse ot the stranger, and the spoiler. And we feel confident that the think ing people of all sections and of all parties, felicitate her on her happy deliverance from the An aconda toils of her oppressors. The silver lining of hef prosper ity will grow and brighten, un-until-in a fovr years, she will be, in material prosperity, the peer of any ot her sister States. Louis-ana, too, in good time will be fully redeemed from" the destroying grip of" her oppress ors. Packard may may die hard. He may make a convulsive effort to drag the state down in his last agouies, but inthis he will fail, and hurt no one bnt himself, and, perhaps, a few besotted followers. "Beautiful arc the feet upon the mountains of him that bringeth glad tidings, that bringeth glad tidings of "good." - FEARFUL. We clip the following resolu tion, of a politicals character, from the .New England Con ference of the Methodist Church, recently convened, at Boston. Head it, and- note the spirit of unforgiving fury that pervades It. If anything could disgrace the christain religioD, the reso lntion and protest of these men, animated by the spirit of satan, rather than of the meek and forgiving Nazarine, certainly would. They stand more- in need of christain prayer, than 'do the unregenerate, and we snggest that special prayer bo offered for them in all our clinrclit-s: Resolved, That we protest most earnestly against the action of the new administration iu makinir ternu with the chief ot the Jvu-Klux instigator ot the Hamburg massacre, M. C. Bnt let; and still more earnestly do we protest acaint the official re cognition by the administration ot'that arch-enemy of the re public, who long since ought to have been hung for treason, Wade Hampton ot Soujh Caro lina, and who, bj- thrests and intimidation under the ven- root of the White House, as well as on railroad platforms and in other public places, defies the power of the government and bullies the riesidcnt into compliance with hia traitorous and wicked usurpation. Pnnchl brothers, lunch, but "punch with caire." A tranger came to Parson Lacy's house the other day, rid ing one horse and leading an other. The Parson accused him 'of being a horse thief. The stranger denied the mild im peachment, and told him if he would go .with him to Me ridian, he could disprove the suspicion. Lacy, the elder went for his gun, and the stranger lor his horse, and seeing the gnn pre sented at "him he dodged round the corner of the house, where he met Lacy's son, who shot the stranger down, killing him dead enough to require an inquest. Mocal. 2sever ride one horse and lead another, espe c'ally in Hill county. BRENHAM, WASHINGTON OOOTTY, SAN JACIXTO DAT. This aniversary, atfdnnd which culminate so many glories of which Texas- has just cause to be proud, occurs next Saturday. It is a day that should ever be held in sacred remembrance by those whoso lots have 'been cist in a land wrested from misrule by a little band of men, every one of whom was a hero. It is inspiring to obscure the preparations that have been made in various parts of the State, to celebrate the day in a becoming manner. In onr own county, at Inde pendence, than which a more appropriate place could not have been selcctcdthe day will be marked by 'more than the customary exhibition of patriot ic display. One of the attractive fcatnres of the programme, is an oration to be delivered by C. S. Rob ertson, Esq. a young gentleman of superior culture and high mental attainments. With so patriotic a theme as San Jacin to, which is onr "Plymouth Eck" and "Bunker Hill" roll ed iuto one, to fire the htart o the youthful orator, he will be certiio to infuse jio small por tion of the patriotic fervor that will animate his own soul, iuto the minds of his auditors. We congratulate Mr. Bobert son on the destinction confered upon him by the citizens of In dependence, which distinction should bo appreciated all the higher, when it is remembered Lthat Baylor UNivERsm is his Alma mater. To win new hon ors under her shadon-. is an hon or of which to be justly proud. Look before too leap. A cotemporary, evidently of a religious turn of mind, in or der to show what he knows about the bible, goes into a lengthy argument to prove the probability of Jonah's having been swallowed by a whsle, and tells us that the whale ha a very large throat. He also gives a little of the history of whales, and tells ns that in time. of a storm, the maternal whale will open her capacious mouth, and take her tender offspring "out ot the wet," unto the chamber of her stomach, thus demonstrating how easy a mat ter it would have been for Jo nah to have been cared for in the same manner. Another writer of infidel ten dencies, who flourished three fourths of a eeptury ago, bnt whose works arc still extant, went into a labored argument on thesame subject, to prove the converse of our modern writer, and says the whale is a fi-h that has a very small throat. Kow we do not pretend to determine which of these is right.. But if either of them had read the book of Jonah, he might have saved himself some labor on the "whale question" so far as it relates to tho history of Jonah, for in the English version of the book supposed to contain his history, the word Jonah is not mentioned once. m . Wade Hampton is said to be a remarkably economical Gov ernor. He abhors anything'like extravagance in official positions and will not tolerate anything of thokind in the administration of the affairs of the stat'j ot South Carolina. The last w;ssjon of the legislature only cost 812,000 a contrast with the $200,000 spent for the republican legisla tures. He has collected taes to tLqgamonnt of $120,000 and has on hand $80,0f0, after pay ing all expenses except the sal aries of connty officers and the school fnnd. It is his purpose to keep down expenses and let the State get some marrow in her bones for her new era ot progress and prosperity. m CrNCiNfATi has tour hun dred cigar makers, who turn out annually, over one hundred mil lions cigars.

There is no intention on our part to inflict on you a lecture about "moral duty," or' any thing in that line. In all prob ability tint has already been done, until the subject is as distasteful to you as "a twice told tale, vexing the dull cars of a drowsy man."' What we started to say was that it is Impossible for any man to attend church, and hear one of our educated ministers discourse we have none other in Brenham without deriving benefit from the exercise, wheth er he believes or disbelieves in orthodox creeds. It is impossi ble for an educated, well trained-mind to talk half an hour without saying something cer tain to awaken new thoughts among' men ot the best cultiva yated intellects for his hears. To the young, and those who have not enjoyed the brightest advantages of thorough culture and an extensive course of read ing, the opportunity of improv ing themselves by attending the discourses ot educated men, the benefits are incalculable, Taking this view of the sub ject perhaps the lowest that could be taken and there are strong inducments for every oue to attend church, which we trust will be universally done by the young gentlemen of Brenham, this calm and heauti sabbath morning. TnE Seasons. With the ex ception of a ftw northers though they were not cold enough to seriously damage anj thing, the spring has been even more beautiful than any of its predecessors in this clime, where spring is always lovely. There has hardly been a day sinee it opened, in which plan tation work could not be car. ricd on with pleasure and prof it. The consequence of this is that the farming interest barriug the presence ot the grasshoppers and they will soon leave, never looked more encoura-ing- With the close of the week, a majority of the farmers had plowed out their corn, and nearly all ot them had finished planting cotton. In fact we know farmers, residing within two inile9 ot the city, who had fin ished ploughing out their corn by the middle ot the week which closed yesterday. All this is encouraging, and ought to close the months of grum blers. Paper Mill. A Mr. En glish - an experienced an prac tical mechanic; is endevoring to raise money enough by sub scription at Austin to erect a paper mill in or near that city. The cost of erecting and plac ing the mill in operation is es timatcd at from fifteen to twen ty thousand dollars. It seems to us that a paper mill ought to make money in Texa, and would do it, if '. he publisher of the State would extend the mill their entire patronage. Business is not quite so live ly as onr mefchants would have it to be, Bnt, the dull season is f.ist closing in upon ns and we can only bear and grin. yoCksbote.

In their behalf, we beseech thee, please don't grin. Good advice to the Young. Avoid all boasting, abue and siang phrases; evil speaking and oaths in conversation; depreciate no man's qualities; accept hospi talities of the humblest kind iu a hearty and appreciative manner; avoid giving offence, and if you do offend, have the manliness to apologize; infuse a- much ele gance' as possible into join thoughts as well as your actions, and as yon avoid vulgarities, you will incrca-ethe enjoyment of life and grow in tho rc-pcet ol others. TEXAS. ERIDA Y, We reproduce the following from the Longview iVeio Era, cordially iudorsing its sugges tions. The press "of Texas has done more than any other call ing or profession to ridvancc lier material interest. No greater mistake was ever made by a people, than that of neglecting to foster their news papers by all legitimate means in their power. There are a number of l.iws which the public good require, and which the Legislature has steadily refused to pass, because it was throwing a small amount of patronage into the hands of the printers, who have helped more largely than any other class of professional men, to make the prosperity all enjoj "The legislation of Tea-s, in regard to public printing, is a disgrace to the State. .No oth er State has pursued as nig gardly a policy towards their State journals as has the great Lone Star State. Every spe cies ot 'printing could be done within her own bounds, and as cheap as it is done elsewhere, but, owing to the fact that our legislators have failed to see the importance of protecting their home printing enterprises, one house iu St. Louis has drawn from the State not less than one million dollars within the past 3 jor i years. The Legislature of Alabama, seeing the impor tance ot tostering her own home printing establishments, has passed a law prohibiting State and county officers from sending their orders out of the State for printing. Our legislators seems to have rcguarded the printing interest ot the State as one dangerous to the public good, and, instead of encouraging it, deem it their ho ly duty to throw around it eve ry possible restriction. We hope the day is not very distant when men of more liberal and sensible views will be called to legislate for us" Alexia Ledger. - The Supreme CourtJ now in session at Austin has six hun dred cases on the docket.

Yes, and the docket will contin ue to inereaso as long as thecount continues as it is nt present a migratory sort of an institution. Let the court be held at one place, and tho time spent in travel being devoted to business, the dockets will gradually dim inish. Oral arguments arc rare ly made, and never indispensa ble. Briefs arc the boys that do tho talking. Let both the Su preme and Appellate Courts hold their sessions at the capital of the State, and then thero will be some hope of getting to the end ot the dockets before the winding of the last trumpet. ill people never conic to handle pistols with care. In its issue of the 13th inst ,tho States man telh of two brothers at Leesville. playing with what they supposed was an empty pittol, when it fired, killing one.' The same papur tells of a man near Denton who poin ted and snapped what ho sup posed an empty pistol at an ac quaintance who became offend ed at the pleasantry. In order to convince his friend, he cap ed the pistol, held it to his tem ple. Instead of snapping, it fired, and there- was a dead man. - Cotton. This article, took a downward leap last week in the Liverpool market. Political af fairs -in Europe wear an ugly look, and the prospect that pri ces will rally at an early-day, is anything but hopeful. But for all this, we venture the predic tion that the planters will not lessen their production although the certainty of low prices sgfees them in the face. It is not too late yet to diminish the crop, and devote some of the acreage intended for cotton, to other farm products. m aces.
