The Banner is indedbted to Mr. W. K. Homan for legisla tive documents. The Washing ton county delegation had been chiefly conspicuous for its neg lect. Although elected on the greenback ticket, Mr. Homan has made one of the most ac tive members. At Stockton, Gil , on the 22d inst,, a boiler explosion took place.

In addition to an article in the Galvestan Civilivn repro produced elsewhere, it goes for Col. Finlay, who represents the Island city in the legislature, in a .manner calculated to make that gentlemen feel a little bad, It says the colonel is very astute and ready, for any change of base that will pay. ' 1 1 Congress has created a new federal judiciary district in Tex as. The bill is before the pres ident for his signature. The consequence is there is an ac tive canvass for the new judge ship. Norton, the Dallas post master, is a candidate, but Brown has the most supporters in congress. The senate is at work on an amendment to the constitution concerning the judiciary. It provides for nine supreme judges to be elected. It also provides for the governor to appoint district judges. It does away with county judges and provides for an election on the amendment the first of July. The Corsicana Index is of the opinion that crime is on the decrease in Texas. It says that there are not so many crimes to the 1000 inhabitants now as there was in 1S69. Our morals are improving slowly but sure ly. If there were a few more murderers hanged the improve ment would perhaps be more marked. The Columbus Citizen in dulges in a column leader on the legislature, in which it goes for that august body without gloves. It would seem that the legislature has done many tilings which it ought not to have done, and wholly omitted doing things which are of press ing need to the state. The retrenchment and reform cry at Austin is near about run ning the whole legislature aground. We think a reduc tion of county officers salaries in order. From what we can learn a majority of county offi cers are willing to submit to a reasonable reduction in fees so as tobe sure of a given amount The San Antonio Exptess knocks Gov. Roberts' hat over his eyes and gives him the very old Harry in the matter of re fusing transportation to crimi nals caught in other states as in the case of Melasky and Reed. "The governor," remarks the Express, "virtually says to mur derers, get across the state line and you are safe." The Waco Examiner perpe trates the following. The first word is longer than any in a Galveston Nczos' leader : Brachydiatematherium is the euphonious name of a new fos sil found in the Eocene beds of Transylvania. As the Eocene period probably underlies Tex as, many of them exist here, which is natural selection, as Texas is the only State large enough to accommodate such a name. Moral questions, like Sun- "day laws, nearly always regu late themselves that is to say, in all well regulated communi ties it does not require the re straining influence of the law to make people behave themselves. The question of going to church is one which regulates itself. No man or woman who has any re spect for the community in which they live will be guilty of any misbehavior on Sunday. At. this day and time a decent re spect for the opinion of his neighbors necessarily compels all to behave themselves. Greenbacklsm .Aaixi. It seems from the measures now being taken the greenback party is to be resurrected. The party is being reorganized and is soon to have a sort of a na tional convention. The object of this convention is no doubt to devise ways and means for the coming presidential cam paigh next year. That the greenback leaders have any idea that they can elect a candidate we do not believe. The true object sought to be accomplish ed is the same as at the fall elec tions last year to split the democratic party and thus in sure the success of the republi can candidate for the presiden cy. If the republican party is dead it certainly has a very lively corpse. The republican party is a very powerful and wealty one and if it can secure the administration it will be in position to wield a powerful in fluence over a democratic con gress. With this knowledge constantly in view the leaders of the republicans are the pow er behind the throne, and the manipulators of the greenback movement. -The San Antonio Express is, and has been,' one of thewarm est'advbcates of the bell-punch law. It seems to have taken but a one-sided view of the question. The Banner has watched this bill closely, and so far as its information goes, the verdict has been that the bell punch is a failure. Mr. Finlay is a gentleman whose honesty of purpose we have no reason to doubt, but at the same time Mr. Finlay is as liable to be mis taken. The Expiess is a fair minded paper and the Banner has had but little occasion to disagree with it In this partic ular instance it is far off. The Banner favors low taxes if it is possible to have them. Luxu ries should be highly taxed par ticularly tobacco and whiskey; if the bell punch will accomplish the object, we are in favor of it, otherwise, not m m m The military convention at Austin on the 22 inst. was well attended by delegates from all the companies in thestate. The Brenham Greys were represen ted by Capt Kirby, Lieuts. Sloan and Burns and private Ed. Lockett The convention was harmonious. Six regi ments were formed of one di vision and two brigades. The election of officers resulted m Major General F. W. Ruther ford; Brigaders R. Rutherford and Charles D. Grace. It is said that Capt Kirby of the Greys will be elected colonel the battalion composed of the Greys, the Bryan Rifles and the Johnston Guards, of Hemp stead. Rumors are again current to the effect that Wade Hampton is in a very critical condition. The dispatches stated a day or two ago that he was to be taken to New York to have a second amputation performed. Only a short time ago the patient said he was rapidly recovering, and that the governor attributed this to the influence of the prayers of his Christian friends. The praying sympathizers should re double their exertions, in view of the apparent relapse. The body of a young man named Blake was found in the woods a few hundred yards from the residence of his moth er. He had been killed by a blow inflicted with a club or bludgeon. It seems that John Marshall and his wife the moth er of Blake were recently di vorcedi The community prop erty was divided, and Marshall to annoy the woman, built and occupied a house directly across the road from her's. Bad feel ing had existed for some time and strong suspicion rests on Marshall. Siei man Register. Tun Zulus in South Africa arc still giving the British a world of trouble. Col.

Agreeable to announcement, the grand hop of the Chosen Friend Lodge No. 432, Knights and Ladies of Honor, of Hemp stead, came off on Thursday evening last. Wheeler's Hall crowded with Waller's fairest and bravest, and with an excel lent floor and a first class Ital ian string band, the ball may be considered a grand success. Some of the most attractive la dies of the ball room were Misses L. O., M. N., U. S., M. G., (in particular), and A. B.; Miss R. of Navasota, and Miss K. of Dallas, were in attendance. Madams C, H., A., H., and F., all of w horn were attired in a most becoming manner. The Johnson Guards were out in their superb uniform, headed by their handsome and graceful captain. They claim their uni form to be much handsomer than that of our Greys, (and we opine, imagine the men in them arc much better looking; but alas! thcre.'s where they make ttheir mistake.) Several large supper tables were heavi ly laden with the choicest of viands, such as meats' of various kinds, cakes and fruits of the greatest abundance and variety, all of which, those present did ample justice to. The committee of invitation, composed of three of Hemp stead's most respected citizens, Messrs. W. T. Andress, -,Sam Schwarz and .Dr. Watkins, ex tended usual courtesies to the Banner representative, for which they have many thanks. . The floor managers Capt A. J. Bedel, Messrs. Jas. A. Felker and H. M. Brown, were particu larly active in their efforts to make the occasion agreeable to all, introducing those unac quainted and performing "the various little duties devolving upon them with a degree of suavitet in, viodo quite credita ble. Ball at Bellvllle. The ball at Unity Hall, Bell ville on the evening of the 21st was indeed a pleasant affair. Al though the attendance was not as large as anticipated, yet there was a good turn out, and the evening was happily passed in dancing and conversation. At 12 o'clock- supper was announc ed and the pleasure seekers were invited to repair to the courthouse, where a sumptuous repast had been provided, un surpassed in quality, and in quantity amply sufficient to have fed three'times the number of persons present.' Supper over with, a handsome cake was vo ted to the prettiest girl in the room, the contest being decided in favor of Miss Huckaby. In this contest vctes cost 25 cents apeice and 'tis said a gallant young attorney, of the Bellville bar, actually invested $14.25 in securing the election of Miss H. The, company then returned to the hall and resumed dancing, continuing until a late hour. Ev erything passed off pleasantly and agreeably, and the best of good) humor prevailed. Our thanks are due J. J. Hag garty, Esq., Mr. Hill, S. R.Blake Esq. and Sheriff Lewis for cour tesies extended us during the evening. a 1 The Brenham Banner" oppos es the bell punch, which, it says, has proven a failure in other States, The punch is one of the most stupendous patent frauds ever invented, and its introduction into this State was brought about by a Galveston ring, who have secured the patent for the State of Texas. By the passage of the Finlay bill, now before legislature, this ring would pocket about $800,000, from the royalty on the machines. But this is not the worst feature. An army of spies or informers, would be brought into requisi tion, and universal perjury would be the result, because no man who would undertake such dirty work would hesitate at committing perjury, when halt the reward, or penalty, went into his own pocket. The bill should be immediately defeated as it is one of the most coirupt measures ever introduced at Austin. Galveston Civilian. The foregoing is fully in ac cordance with the views express ed by the Banner when Mr. Finlay introduced his bill. The bill has been defeated in the house and deirvesto be killed.

Henry Smith to the legislature in behalf of his granddaughter who painted it from a miniature portrait. Gov. Smith was the first governor of Texas. Gen. J. B. Robertson, a well known Texan, writes a letter to the Galveston News, in whieh he takes very strong grounds against the sale of the public do main and the university and school lands. Gen. R. is a Tex as veteran and a gentleman whose opinion is universally re spected. If there was no other reason for not selling the lands now, the simple fact that if they were all put upon the market, they would bring comparatively nothing, leaving the state and schools without lands or money and the debt but little reJuced, would of itself be sufficient. ,HB.
