It is ch irged by some of the ultra Republican papers that the reaction of the last year or two reminds the Ireeduien of the old days of slavery. The colored man no longer sits in the lygis Lit me to make laws tor bio for mer niasrer, and fill his pockets with money paid for bribes. In short he has to work for a living, and with some of the colored people the idea of fieedom and work is incompatible.

The Dallas Horning Call is opposed to the establishment of the whipping -p it in this State, on the ground that "the object ot punishment for law-brcakeis is not so -much to degrade them as it is to reform them." It may begranted th it this is true, but it the present means of punishment, the county jail and the penitentiary, prove as they have, to make the offen der worse iustead ot Letter, is it not rLiht and proper that some other means be resorted to? Experience his proven be yond any doubt that a large majority of the graduates from the penitentiary come out worc than when they went in. "With a certain class ot trifling freed meu it is esteemed an houor to have served a term in "the peni tentiary. It gives the cx-con-vict caste. He is looked upon as being particularly smirt, and is, to a certain extent, "treated asal.cro. It makes no differ ence if he has been convicted of n common theft, or the raon exalted calling of horse and cattle stealing. It might, per haps, be well enough to bury all mawkish lentimentality upon this subject, and assume that when a party is guilty of coin ting an offense that he has al ready fallen to the lowest grade of depredation, and that if the whipping-pjst will cure him his reformation will hare been ac complixhed, and thus it will be a reformatory institution in stead of one promotive of dogre rcdation. The Galveston Jonrnal of Commerce calls attention to th: tact that the cinning of oysters and fish is as profitable a business as can be engaged in with a small capital. Oysters-and fish are both abundant in GalTes ton vet there is no one there engaged in .he business. The quantity of coined goods sold in Texas is absolutely enormous. They form a considerable item in the sale of every dealer in groceries. Vegetables such as peas com and snap beans could and should be canned in Texas where they are produced iu un limited quantities. From the Galveston Civilian of a recent date wc learn that a large drore of fine and tat hogs from the interior were shipped to New Orleans by a Morgan steanu r. A few days ago the Bassek took occasion to say that by the improved modes ot packing, hogs are slaughtered at nil seasons ot the year. New Orleans affords a larger market tor fat hogs than will probably be supplied by Southern Texas for several years to come. Tntr fact, howover, exporting hoes from the southern part ot the State, instead ot importing bacon, is certainly encouraging. TnK New York Herald ol Sunday the 10th iust, had sixty-five columns of advertise ments containing over three thousand advertisements.

The Hempstead Messenger has an editorial on the great one-legged railway, from which it appears that it is not n as- snred fact that the road will be brought to Hempstead, the citi zens ot that place being some wlmt backward about taking stock in it.

The city Council of Deu ison, with one dissenting voice, has passed an ordinance limit ing the fine lor running a gam bling house to $5. They say it will bring money into the city tieasury and that gambling cannot be stopped anyway. The State laws against it arc stringent but up thtro seem to be inoperative. The San Antonio Express says a large aud profitable busi ness might be done from that section of country by the ship ment of early peas, cucumbers, snap beans, corn, potatoes, squashes, etc., to the northern markets, but that the exhorbi tunt rates of freight demanded by the G., II. and II. raihoad company jirecludes the jiossi bility ot doing so aud realizing any profit. Early last spring a young man niTmcd Dixon was foully murdered in Bosque county by "old man Swafiord and his son-in-law, Marksbury. They were tried and convicted of murder in tho first dtgree; appealed, and tho verdict was affirmed. Subsequently both escaped from the Bosque county jail. The The Waco Telephone says Marksbury was recently recap tiired in Springfield, III., and that he will be brought back. The jirofpects tor a judicial hanging are brightniug. Some days ago the Ban ner published an item relating how a jealous husband shot at a man iu a roon at a hotel, and caused him to jump ont of the second story window.

Mr. Billingslea delivered an address, explaining the object of the greenback movement. In the course of his remarks he intimated that there was an in clination among unthinking people to condemn the move ment, and even him for joining the party. In this he is wrong; No one here doubts the honest, intentiona of the club.
