TU!b'lue-Ebok just issued shows there are Ss,88o civil em ployees of the government. The Murphy temperance wave is rolling over West Tenn essee. " Rents arc lower in New York than they have been be fore' in the last twenty years. Memphis, Tcnn., has fifty- eight churches; tweniy-four of them belong to the colored people. The, Vtcksburg' Herald an nounces that the country ed itors in Mississippi have finished planting corn. Fm; hundred colored people from the vicinity of Nashville, Tcnn.? are making preparations to emigrate to Arkansas. - The tariff bill is under con sideration by the House. In the Senate the. House deficiency bill was favorably reported upon. The." Stenber county poor house, near Bath, N. Y., was ac cidsntly set on fire by a crazy patient Fifteen inmates per ished. Trout, were sold in the New .York markets on the ist inst, being the "opening of thcr trout fishing season, at one dollar a pound. The -"Sedalta, (Mo.)

Affairs, however,- continue to be very" much., mixed. - The Austin azcttc?docs not -seem to "bfrractua"t'cd by any spirit of jealousy and has a kind word to say for the G., C and S. F. railway. , Prof. Riley, late state en tomologist of Missouri, has been tendered tliepoJitipn of entomol ogist of tht AgnculturalDepart nient at Washington. Montgomery Blair is confi dent ,t"iat he -"will sucecdinput7 tiiig.PesdtnJ'Hays out ofoffice Mr-I&Sik"hotyever has but few sympathizers in his"' movement Suit has been brought against Maj Gen. P. H.Sher dan, by J. A. Whalen, the owner of a Louisiana plantation for S50o,ooolfor sugar and molasses taken by Sheridan in 1867. "It is now authoritatively announced that CoL Lang is simply carrying out the com mand, of the State Grange in making his tour and performing the great labor attending it. Nearly all the county papers in Texas are now loaded down to the. guards with delinquent tax sales. It is a fine thing for the newspapers, but very un pleasant for the delinquents. The Texas delegation, with one"'exception, will vote against the reduction of the regular army below 25,000 men. The name of the- congressman in favor of reduction is not given. Gov. Hubbard has writtcu a f letter in" reply to one received from the railway officials, in which he advises the arming of the train hands and messengers with shot guns and army car bines. Gait. N. P. Harris, of Bell county, is highly commended by, the Comanche Chief, Brown wood Banner and San Saba News as a candidate for com missioner of the General Land Office. " The Banner is under obli gations to Capt R. J. Hughes for an invitation to the 38th Anniversary of the Galveston Artillery Company, at Artillery Hall, on Monday evening April 22d. The Sf.Loui; Republican says it is remored that the Missouri Pacific railroad is about to get control of the M., K. and T. open new possibilities to St Louis merchants in the Texas trade. The M., K and T. road has reretofore been operated exclusively in the interest of Chicago. - There arc 6200 communists in Chicago. They are socialists of the same violent school w ho attempted the destruction of Paris in 1870, and they do not take any points to conceal the fact Tom Allen an Englishman; the StLouis bruiser, lias gone to England as an American and whipped the British champion, Davis. So America now claims the champion of the "square ring." If, remarks the Caldwell Ea gle, Judge Ireland "should" re ceive the nomination for Gov ernor, we can conscientiously support him. Hedgqd in wtth one "if" and "should," it seems very likely that the Eagle's conscience will' not be put to the test t The difference between Sec retary Sherman, and the New York bankers as thus stated. The bankers want to absolutely destroy the three hundred and one million greenbacks, replac ing them with gold coin. Sher man proposes to keep them in circulation. The Denison Herald in an editorial on the late daring ex press robberies Says : "In our opinion the good name of North ern Texas demands that this bold band shall be surpressed." They should be captured if it takes every able bodied man in that section of the State. In San Antonio one Eastland, who had been employed by Wharton, an auctioneer, sad dled up Wharton's horse and calling him but levelled a shot gun on him and forced him to sign a bill of sale. Eastland was arrested before he goUout of tow n. Ex-Gov. Pinchback. who is now in Washington, says Louis :ana now has the best governor of any within his recollection, and the people are better satis fied with the condition of affairr, though they complain of hard times. He complains that ne gro children, nearly -white, in the publio schools in New Or leans have been" required to leave them. Ee-Congressman Vance, of Gallipolis, Ohio,"' is the cham pion borrower.. He.. borrowed 15,000 from his friends and then borrowed the good looking wife of a music teacher and with the money and the other fellow's wife left for parts un known. Vance has created a great scandle in his neighbor hood. ' , The Fort Worth Democrat boasts that at the next Mayor's election of that city 2000 votes will be polled. The Dallas Morning Call retorts by saying: It is impossible by that time that the Pacific railroad bill will have passed and the work of constructing the road westward begun, in which case Fort Worth will be a deserted village with a voting population reduc ed to a hundred or thereabouts. The Central and Sunset routes have agreed to pass free, coming and returning, all visit ing bona fide firemen to the coming parade of the Houston Fire Department, on San Jacin to day. The Telegram says delegations will be present from Austin, "Brenham-, Bryan, Cal vert and Hempstead. The chief contends that at least one thousand firemen will partici pate in the parade. The Hempstead Courier says that Alta Vista, the colored branch of the Agricultural and Mechanical college, has so far proved a failure, because of the inability of the colored people to send their sons there; the ex pense being greater than they are able to bean The Courier suggests that no boys under fourteen years of age be admit ted, and that "the pupils be made self-sustaining by working on the plantation, by this means the' will be able to pay their board bv their labor. We arc not aware that the present incumbent Mr. Giddings will be a candidate. At any rate there is an impression abroad in this district that Seth Shepard is the proper man, and he will in all probability be the Democratic nominee. Reek dale Messenger. . Mr. Shepard made many friends during the late congres sional canvass and we believe he would be acceptable to the Democrats of this district. THE "WXEKX.T BANNER. We present our readers with the Weekly Banner in an im proved form. The reading mat ter is all set in new type and the proprietors flatter themselves that in typographical appear ance and mechanical execution the Banned isnot "owujUcd y any intcrio We have taken, charge Since that time trie """""""""""Css the. paper has been steadily upward, and to-day it stands second to none in the interior. It will be the sole aim and ob ject of the present management of the Banner to give the people of Washington and adjoining connties.a county paper ofwhich they may be justly proud; -with this object in view no effort or pains will be spared to present' the latest and freshest news in an attractive and readable shape. It is perhaps unneces sary to say that in politics, it will in the future as in the past, be unswervingly Democrat'c. It will keep its readers fully pos ted in the coming State can vass. Independence in 1822. ThePleasantoniarrt pub lishes an interesting narrative by Capt Peter Tumlinson, one of the pioneers of Texas. The following extract may prove in teresting to some of our readers: In February 1822 we crossed the Brazos. That day about sunset thirty Caddo warriors charged us, but a Mexican with them-perceiving that we were whites and prepared to resist, called out; "Don't be afrafd, we are friends." We employed this Mexican to conduct us to the San Antonio road." Thence we journeyed to where Indepen dence now stands. It was then a wilderness over which vast numbers, of cattle, horses and buffalo roam6d. These cattle were descendents of cattle im ported from Spain,- through Mexico long anterior to even this eaily date. This country had evidently been occupied by civilized people for more than a century prior to our advent; for we frequently saw remains of acqueducts, forts, hearths ctc.all of very old and of Spauish ori gin. The narrator cut and split the first rails, and built them into cattle pens, on the identical spot where Independence now stands. Other families soon came. Our food was meat alone; no salt, bread or coffee could be had. We dressed our selves in buckskin and wore moccasins. . Our women were also often compelled to wear buckskin. The Indians were quite numerous, the trite; being the Lipans, Coronquowas, Ton quowas nnd Creeks. Cotton Culture. The Austin Gazette insists that there is no money in rais ing cotton at present prices, seven cents for good ordinary. It says that a hand could not realize $6 per month, exclusive of picking, in working the crop. The Banner has never advo cated the exclusive cultivation of cotton, but on the other hand, has advocated a diversity of crops and the cultivation of wheat. As the matter stands now; money or no morey in cotton, one thing is evident to every one, and that is, so soon as the cotton crop is exhausted money becomes scarce, busi ness ceases and the dull season reigns supreme. The farmers are out of money, and the mer chants, if they sell goods at all, are compelled to sell on credit. When farming, not only in Texas, bnt in all cotton pro ducing States, is changed so that cotton will be raised as a surplus crop, the complaint of dull times will cease. The father of Charlie Ross has taken the lecture field. Candidates arc coming to the front in Waller county. jhKJRas. pcnscdEs VLt iisaalllV three jKtiary. j slssssssssssssssssssss' ot STATE NEWS.

An itinerent candy maker amused the citizens of Dainger field by making and selling can dy on the streets. The Flatonia Hook and Ladder company will- celebrate ban Jacinto day by a ball and picnic on the 22d inst " Houston pays her laborers 1.75 a day in scrip, equal to about 70 cents in money. Car penters demand "5 in scrip. Sunday fishing is not as pious as going to church, re marks the "Dallas Herald. We suppose it speaks by the card. Brown Bowen, condemed to be hung, and a prisoner nam ed Darnell, were sent from Ans tin to Gonzales county on Sat urday. A highly respected color ed minister has Beecherized at San Antonio and there is an im mense commotion in colored so ciety. The Tylor Democrat hoists the name of R. B. Hubbard for' Governos because it believes he is the right man in the right place. April fool. On the first of April, one Mitchell, a painter; fooled the Beilvillians by skip ping out and leaving the amount of Si 25 unpaid. The Belton Journal says the people are in earnest at last in their efforts to get a rail road. The Santa 'Fe road is the one they want. -- Mr. B. F. Mitchell has wheat growing on his place near Weimar which stands three and a half fiet high, and has heads seven inches long. The Dallas "greenbackers" succeeded in drawing out sixty one votes in the late city elec tion. It is reported that they are "busted" now. A cattle pen covering two acres of ground is being put up at Columbus. It will afford ample facilities for the ship ment of live stock. In Bell county local option is now numbered with the things that were. Saloons are in full blast and standing prescriptions are at a heavy discount. The Austin Statesman has seen a man from San Antonio who reports business as dull in Alamo city as at Austin. There fore the Statesman is happy. The Flatonia Argus, not withstanding its hundred eyes, is unable to determine the des tiny qf the negro race, and asks: "Are they doomed to extinc tion ?" The San Antonio Express prints a letter written by Brown Btiwen, charging John Wesley Haidin with having killed Thos. Holderman. Real Estate is in more ac tive demand in the vicinity of Denison, than at any time since the county was opened up by railroads. A Tloustou brickmaker is "about shipping 300,000 brick to Dallas for new buildings. The Houston brick including freight are cheaper than the Dallas brickyards are selling. The Denison Herald is dis posed to make fun of Denison's crack military company, that Gate City Guards. It publishes a call for a meeting under a cut of a first-class, burial case. A Galveston Ntws spec ial from Fort Worth says Hickox and Gross, express em ployes have been discharged for non-resistance of the Eagle Ford robbers. A cave has been discover ed some ten miles south of San Saba. Appearances indicate that it is the work of human hands, and was made for some specific purpose. The Colorado Citizen says the completion of the Santa Fe road io Belton would open up to Galveston one of the richest and most productive portions of our State. Correct. In the neighborhood of Fredericksburg "irregularities" in handling cattle have become so prevalent that a general scout of the Gillespie Mounted Rifles has been'determined upon. Prof. De Houne, the one legged rope walker and the Da goes with the educated birds, who were lately in Brenham, have formed a combination and are' giving "shows" in Dallas. --The Bastrop Advertiser's vocabulary of "cuss words" is insufficient to express its con tempt of the Texas express company. It admits that it cannot do the subject justice. Bellville Arg;ts : Improve ments are the order of the d;y in Bellville. A new brick-yard has been put in operation and several buildings are contem plated besides those going up. THE'Dallas Commercial is of the,, opinion that it is all a mistake about the negro race dying out. It bases its belief upon the numbcr'of negroes, in Dallas just before the city .elec tion, t- Mr. Sleeper, of Wacof was bound over in the sum "of gjooo by the United States Carftmis-. sioner at Austin. . It" claimed that ' the prosecution is ma licious' and instigated by-'A. J. Evans. -j-The Georgetown railroad prospect has progressed so far that bids have already been re ceived for grading.'iron and ties. It"is proposed to "connect with thelnternational at Round Rock or Palm Valley. s t.The . farmers of-SSmith county have been for years much troubled with cattle thieves. The law having failed to reach the offenders, the citizens propose taking the matter in their own hands. The Hempsicad Messenger learns that dar-klantern political meetings are held every night or two. The opinion is gaining ground that a Republican nomination is eqnivalent to 'an clection;hence the anxiety of the true blacks. The bull and lion fight at San Antonio last week was a flat failure The Lion was se verely wounded while the bull escaped without a scratch. An other match between the same bull and lion is to come off in a few days. A singular meteorological phenomenon was experienced at Jacksonville: it was a hot wind storm. Persons who were ex posed to it felt as though their heads were on fire or flames were around their heads and hands.- J. M. Gompet, a Fort Worth book-keeper was arres ted for forging a draft on New York. The grand jury being in session he was arrested, in dicted, tried and convicted and sentenced to the penitentiary for two years all done in less than twenty-four hours. A special to the Galveston News says a fight occurid atLou isville, Denton county, between Sam Bass and Frank Jackson, supposed train robbers, and sev eral parties who were in search of them. Help was requested and several Dallas officers have gone to the scene of action. An animal of curious struc ture and form has been discov ered in the Bosque bottom, Mc Lennan county. It is described as being about the size and appearance of a jack rabbit, but it has no tail or cars. In place of ears it is ornamented with flexible horns. Victoria Advocate: Sheriff Thurmond sold a lot of forty-five head of corn-fed cattle. Fifteen head averaged 1427 pound. The races atliefugio came off as adverse J, the aitendencc was small. - "Major J. Y. Rankin, of Brou-ji. county, says the Com anchc.CAV; will be a candidate for Comptroller. The Mason News-Itnn has abandoned its patent over-coat and now. appears in a new suit. It is a twenty-five column home made, paper and one of the newsiest published on the fron tier. It is the official organ of seven large counties and should receive a liberal patronage. The Dallas detectives have come to the conclusion that the various bands of train robbers are-ensconsed in the woods in Denton county, and that the honest people of the neighbor hood arc afraid to "report them, while a large number of the robbers, friends aid and assist them. At 2,20 on Tuesday morn ing a fire broke out in a frame building between Twenty seventh and Twenty-eighth streets, Galveston. Water being scarce the flames spread, and before the Are- was got under control thirteen frame houses were burned. ' The loss is esti mated at 5530,000. The Mayor of Deiisou is now happy; he gets "50 per month and trimmings instead of 1 as heretofore. Musical. Those of our read ers interested in music will note in another column the adver tisement of Geo. Woods & Co9 Organs. The remarkable instruments have a very high reputation in the musical world, and Messrs. Woods & Cc. desire to corres pond with those interested in music with a desire to establish an agency in every town. Removal. MRS. J. R.
