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

It is inspiring to obscure the
preparations that have been

State, to celebrate the day in
a becoming manner.

One of the attractive fcatnres
of the programme, is an oration
to be delivered by C. S. Rob

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.

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.

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.

There is no intention on our
part to inflict on you a lecture

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.

With the close of the

The cost of erecting and plac

to us that a paper mill ought to
make money in Texa, and
would do it, if '. he publisher of

Avoid all boasting, abue and

avoid giving offence, and if you
do offend, have the manliness to

from the Longview iVeio Era,

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.
