Every day produces some thing new, something to con tribute to man's comfort and happiness. A new aud impor tant discovery has recently been made by Dr. J. W. Davenport of Dallas, and by him patented, for preserving meats, vegetables and fruits. The papers of Dallas, where the patentee resides, are loud in th"ir praises of this new process for preserving tho articles nam ed. The beauty of the inven tion is th.it it requires lio extra cost to utilize it. The procoss ib simple, and the cost may be set down at nothiug, as one dimewill cover the cost of clar ifying a barrel of water for the preservation of fruits and vegetables. Mr. A. C. Johns, sptcial agent, is now stopping at the Central Hotel in this city, where he will remain three or four days. Family rights are offered cheap, and we predict that Mr, Johns will disposo of a great many ot these, unless he dispos es of the right ot the county at once.

Editors Banner: We, the young ladies of Bay lor Female College, wish to de fend ourselves agaiut the state uieuts made in the Ban tlb of the 6th inst., by Dio Rivers, with reference to occurrences x Indopenceou the 1st of April. In the fiitp'ace,as to the young ladLs "charging down npou the poor timid creatures" of Bay lor University, ''with vengence glaring from their eyes, swollen with rage" terras of course en tirely inapplicable to young la dies there is evidently some mistake on the part ot Dio Rivers.
