All right: We trcre laboring nnder the impres sion that he was a kinsman ot the famous Daniel Tneker. Thk San Autonio Express ssys Setb, Sliepanl is iooining up as the coining Congressman from the Filth District. It is a Tittle early to speculate as to who wflF be the man, but we would not be at all suqiriscd to sec Shepard set the nomination. Jle is a citizen of Brcnlura and as worthy a gentleman as any iu the district. TIIE O., C S. F. HT.-CATTLE. The Galveston Journal of Commerce says that a binding contract lia! been made be tween the G. C. and S. F. rail way company and James H. Brooks for the construction ot the road to lircnhain. The contract also contains a proviso for the extension of tht road to Bolton, in the event ot certain conditions being complied with. This is gratifying news, and we most sincerely hoje that work will lc speedily begun. The stock, trade along the proposed line is rapidly assum ing importance, and will, so soon as the road is completed, afford no inconsiderable reve nue. The raising of stall-fed cattle is compratively a new indnstry in this section ot the State, and probably more fat cattle have- been shipped from Breuham this season than the aggregate shipments ol two or three years previously. A great many of the German farmers of Austin comity are already mak ing a specialty of raising cattle. Last tall the Messrs. Sargeant, of Illinois, were here and readi ily disposed of several car loads of short'horn cattle, and also someone Berkshire and Essex swine. The gentleman named made a business of.brceding fine stock. It will not be long "before the effect of having im proved cattle will make itselt manifest. Wo have as fine corn-growing land as any in the State, and pasturage the year ronnd. The winters are short and generally very mild, thus giving us every advantage in the world for the production ot cheap beef. It seems to bo al most inevitable that this imme diate section ot country will, before many years, become noted tor the fine quality ot ite beet cattle, .and the business will, year by year, grow in im portance. When proper rail road 'facilities are offered, the shipment of tat hogs will also form no inconsiderable part ot our exports. New Orleans af fords a market tor them at all seasons ot the year, and even now it is by no means an unusual thing to see a drove of porkers shipped by steamer from Galveston to Hew Or leans. In view of the importance ot the cattle business, the G., C. and S. F. railway has erected stock pens in the vicinity ot Areola station, where this road crosses the Brazona tap, and on Monday last commenced the running ot Eeari-weekly trains. legal Sales. -The Paris North Texmn, says the Hempstead Messenger, calls upon the press of the -State to co-operate with it in getting the next Lagislatnre to pass a law requiring sheriffs' and other sales, now advertised by being posted in three places in the county, to be published in the papers. The Mssenger says it would be pleased to see such a law, but that it does not want anything which has the appear ance ot eleemosynary sustain ance. As the law now stands, it appears to us, to be a hard ship on the parties whose goods and chatties are sold, as by the present system ot advertising, no one except those who make a specialty ot attending these sales, know anything about them and the consequence is, property is not unfreqnently sacrificed to the detriment ot the debtor. The eustom otadvertising sher iff and trust sales of real estate is sanctioned in nearly every State in the Union, aud from its universality, we arc inclined to the opinion, that it gives gen eral satisfaction. As a matter of course, it wonld bo a good thing for the newspapers, but on the other hand, would not the parties most directly interested in the sales received a quid pro quo. The St. Louis Bepuilican says. "General min should ruh upon us now: but, never theless, nobody seems to havo any particular fear ot this dreadful silver bill now that it is a silvir law." There are a great many people in Texas who are ready to be ruined with silver dollars of American coin- gc- .. Senator Coke has introduced a bill in the Senate providing for tho construction ot a milita ry railroad from San Antonio to Laredo. NETt DRESS. The Bas.vkk has ordered Irom the St. Louis Typo Foun dry an entire new dr&ss, and on or before the 1st of April will make its appearance in new type. It is the intention ot the proprietors to keep fully up with the times, and to furnish a paper which, in typographi cal appearance and contents, shall be a credit to the county. The Baknke is now one ot the largest papers published in the interior, as a glance at its weekly edition will show. It gives every week from five to seven columns ot new and fresh local matter; about five columns of the very late&t and freshest Stato news, carefully compiled from its large list ot exchanges, and abouMen columns ot orig inal editorials, and editorial notes and news items, together with several columns of care fully selected agricultural mat ter, making it a newspaper for tho people, The proprietors take pleasure in assnring their many patrons that no pains shall be spared to maintain the good opinion which they have ot the Bannek. The type on which the Bakxer is now printed is offered for sale at a bargain. Brick Poaeror. The Banner acknowledges the receipt of a letter from Mr. M. M. Pomeroy, returning thanks for correcting the item stating thnt his paper had sus pended. He takes exvption to its criticism of his position on the "greenback qnestion, and then gives his views in a con densed form, and ask that we reply through the Banner. This, we most respectfully de cline to do, not desiring to enter into any controversy on the snbjert, Mr. Pomeroy has a perfect right to his opinion, which it is but just to say, he has made thoroughly public. He has many proselytes, and is now, we think, at the head ot the greenback movement. We entertain our own views of tiie financial problem. The ablest minds in the country are not agreed npon any one plan. We could not convince Mr. Pome roy that he is wrong. Mr. Pomeroy cannot convince us that we are not right. Mr. Pomeroy writes us a very polite and gentlemanly letter, and with him, as an individual, we have no fault to find. We re serve the right to criticise his opinions as publicly expressed in his paper AUtlonarics- St, Louis has 500,000 inhabi tants, and its churches can con tain only 30,000 people. In this respect St. Louis is not far different from all the other large cities in the United States. ret all ot these cities take up collections and sent missionaries to convert the heathens in In dia, China and Africa. The Austin Statesman, quoting Cnpt, Silas Bent, an admirable scholar and gentleman who spent some time in China, as saying the oldest Protestant missionary in that country confesses that all attempts to convert the Chinese have proved failures. But few of the converts remain firm. W. H. Russell, in his notes on travel in India, doubts whether twenty high caste Hindoos have been converted since the Brit ish entered India. The dedrc tions drawn from the facts pre sented is, that it would be bet ter to spend the money used in foreign missions at home. Thk Marshall Herald says that it has written to Throck morton, and his reply warrants the assertion that he is a candi date, and as fully in the field as it his name was authoritative ly announced in every paper in the State. This announcement may be taken as official. The Herald undertakes, in an edito rial a column in length, to show why Throckmorton should be Governor. The Banner has no favorite to urge for the position and is satisfied to nbido by the decision ot the State Democrat ic Convention. It does not, however, think that Throckmor ton will be the man. Five we?ks ago A. J. Bald win, of Berlin, Conn., was bit ten by a dog, from the effects of which he died on the 27th ult. The doctors pronounce it a caso of hydrophobia. THE C0MI5U STATE COXTKXTlOJi. Interrogatories lr the Chairman of the Democratic State Executlm Committee. Tothf Members nf the Democratic State Executive Committee. It appears, from the vote cast by yon, that there is not major ity in favor ot any place for hold ing the convention. Dallas, Austin, Galveston, Houston, Waco. Palestine and San Antonio havo been named. To avoid, it possible, the ex pense, inconvenience, and delay of calling the committee togeth er to determine the question. I have thought it best to ask your advice, as follows: 1. What place is yur first choice? JJ. What your second choice? 3. What your third choice? 4. Shall a plurality, or major ity, ot the votes cast be requis ite! 5. Should no place receive the necessary number ot votes as a first choice, shall I rounder the votes cast in answer t Inter rogatory 2d, and it, in response thereto, there should be a suffi cient number for any place, shall I call the conention tor that place? 6. Should the vote3 cast in re sponse to Interrogatories 1st and 2J respectively not be decisive, shall 1 then consider the votes cast in answer to Interrogatory 3d; and if, in reply thereto, there should appear the necessary number of votes for any place, shall I designate such place as where the convention is to be held? 7. It there should be failure to elect in the manner as above stated, shall I place in nomina tion before the committee the two places receiving the great est number ot votes as lirst choice, one ot which to be selec ted as the place tor holding the convention! Yonr immediate and especial attention is invited hereto, and should any member now be a non-resident of the district for which he was appointed, he is requested to so inform me, that some other person mav be at once appointed, in his stead and the committee kept at its maxi mum number. Joseth D. Satebs, Chairman Dem. State Execu tive Committee. Bastrop, February 26. 1878. Thk Brenham Banner is mis taken in this statement: When the State convention which nominated Coke the firsi time was assembled at Anstin, tho Democracy of that place wonld not furnish lights, until a delegate proposed a collection for that purpose, and moved that the Travis delegates be ex empt from so cntribnting. Wo hope onr contemporary will make the proper correction Stale Gazette. The Banner would not know ingly make a false charge. It would afford us unbounded pleasure to correct the above statement, but we have the most solemn asservatiou of one who knows, that the statement made in the paragraph quoted by the Oasette is true.
