Last evening at Struve's ball a meet ing of Kngllsh emigrants was held to further coin Ider the quest Ion of mlsrcp rcscntntlon madoby Dr. Kingsbury, at to the advantages of Texas. The meet lng was well Attended and tlio audience was of a higher character than that which assembled at Souimer's garden, although the elements of dlncord were, not wanting, and would have quickly showed disorder liail It not have been restrained by n firm hand. Henry llyder-Taylor called the meet ing to order and asked that n Chairman be nominated. The name ol Mr. Haley was suggested, and that gentleman was elected unanimously. After taking Ids sent, Mr. "llnley brlelly stated the nature of the meeting anil said lie would bo glad to hear from any of the audience who desired to address Ihe meeting. Mr. Iredale ap proached llio Chairman's table and spoke to the meeting at length. He made sev eral animadversions upon the report that appeared In the I.rfliiT, which he was pleased to call an unfair and partial report. He then severely criticised Dr. Kingsbury's pamphlets, reading cxtraots which he claimed were utter falsehoods. Henry llyder-Taylor then made, a nflpph. iliirfnir which hn was reneatedlv annlauded. Mr. Coon Cooper followed Mr. Taylor and opposed the Idea that Kings HK8- uui had misrepresented the country; ho wished to impress tne auuience ne was essentially a satlslled Kngllshmnn. Mr. IV. Mullens also spoke, Invincibly stating that he had heard the wonderful tale of Ihe question of misrepresenta tion. Mr. Costello then had the floor and pertinently said he was surprised to see all this discussion In this country. Messrs. Cumberland, Painter, Corner, Jr., and Jackson also made speeches, supporting the assertions of those who stated Kingsbury was guilty of misrep resentation of falsity. A resolution was then made and sec onded to the effect that the charges brought against Doctor Kingsbury of misrepresentation had been fully sustained, and a committee with power to add to their number was formed of the following gentlemen: Mr. Haley, Mr. K. flrench-Mullens, Mr. Henry Ity-der-Taylor, Mr. Y. Holland, Mr. K. Dlmallne. , Before putting this resolu tion to the vote, Mr. Haley made a most amusing and racy speech of his expe rience In Texas, the dry humor of the speaker keeping the audience In a continual state of laughter. The reso lution was then unanimously carried, and the meeting by votes of thanks being tendered to the Chairman, Mr. Kropr, the hall proprietor, and the rep resentatives of the press. SAN ANTONIO RIVER. The Weeds and the Sewers-The Sudden Bath. During the 'week the San Antonio river has been undergoing the process of belngoleansed from the great quantity of weeds that nave grown In luxuriance Two Lioht representatives took boat yesterday afternoon and pulled town the river to see tho progress that was being made In "this respect and to make any other notes that would be likely to prove of interest to the readers of tho Lioht. The aforesaid representatives did not find much to, take notice of, the river certainly Is somewhat more navi gable since tho removal of the weeds, nnd amateur oarsmen will not find so great a difficulty In pulling up stream The ohlef beauties of our river appear to consist In the many empty tomato and ohlle con carne cans that are In such wild profusion upon Its banks. Tho celestial, too, finds In the river a source of amusement, which at Intervals they take advantage of by trying to catch the specimens of the finny tribe that make the river their habitat with the original Chinese net or seine that has been used by the people of "far Cathay" for ages paBt. Another point noticed was tho great number of sluices sewers that pour their filth anil refuse Into the river; of these between Houston street bridge mid the mill there are no less than thirty-three. A faint estimate may thus bo formed of the Impure condition the water must neoessarlly be In. At the lee factory, whlch'noure con tinually Into the river by three sluices tunny gallons 01 not water, tue iiimtr rcnresentatlve caucht sleht of a snake on the bank. Immediately they pulled near the shore and one of the oarsmen attempted to strike It with nn oar. The rentlle wrlculed out of reach, und as perseverence Is a peculiar he stenncd on the banks to cet at it better. At that moment a spurt of scalding water rrom one or tue ice iac tory sluloes deluged him; with an actlV' uy rareiy suown ne piungeu into lue river and swam into mid stream, where his companion pulled after him and got him Into the boat again, looking like a very good specimen of a drowned cat. lie who had the sudden bath declares that the waters of the Ice factory s-Caldwell, and went home rapidly for a change of clothing. PROTECTION. Demoenuio Campaign Committee ' Using the Wrong Speech. Washington, August 22. Seoretary Post, of the Democratic Congressional committee, discovered to-day that the committee was Inadvertently helping along the Republican campaign by tho distribution of Republican documents. sending out as one of Its principal cam-1 palgn documents, a speech delivered uy Senator Voorhees on the Imprisonment of McSweeny, an Irish suspect, by the British officials during the Oarlleld ad ministration, and copies of the speeches are obtained by the committee by requi sition on the Senate folding room. They are delivered to the committee In large quantities, several thousand at a time, already folded and In wrappers, and are addressed by the committee and em ployees and placed In the malls. It ap pears to have been the custom of the committee to rely altogether on the In tegrity and care of the Senate folding room officials, and then to mall the doc uments receiveu from tnem, wnuoui ex amination. To-day, however, an em ployee of the committee discovered by accidentally opening one of the docu ments thatho was about to mall, Instead of Voorhees' speech the committee was distributing, where It would do the moat goou, a ltepunncan rampaiKu uuu nm.nt nlttloil Illntnrv and llenell cenco of l'rotectlon," made up of nrli.i on ihnnrntretlnnlst tariff nues- tfon delivered In the House or Repre sentatives last winter. An examination followed and disclosed the fact that all possession of the committee were copies of this document. Hecrctarv l'ost went at once to the Superintendent of the roimng room anu tooKnim to task auoui the matter, and was Informed that the substitution of tho document for the honnbllean documents I ttm Dpmncratln com. 1 se mlttee, and they themselves have no means ol establishing the fact.

It was sucreested that the best selec tion for police officers In the ensuing election, as the election of Marshal Shar- deln as Sheriff is a foregone conclusion, would be as follows: Captain Karber, Chief of Police; Captain Hughes, Dep uty and First Assistant; Officer Charles Auoey, oeconu Assistant. A huee block of Ice contalnlnc within Its centre a handsome basket o flowers, was to have been seen standlnt on tbe sidewalk In front of Lookwood & hampmann'a bank. The curiosity nat urally attracted a great many people. It is tho production of the Lone Star The Express says: "County Clerk Thad W. Smith cava tbe county ticket as published in the manufactured purely as un electioneer ing aouge againsi tuo -Mexicans and tneir sympatuizers." The alleged ticket was given for what It was worth, as stated, and If wrong Mr. Smith should positively deny It a number of office seekers combine with a certain element of the community to the exclusion of other classes In order to advance their own ends, It is well that tbe fact should be known, whether that element be Mexican or German, or American. It can be stated that the alleged ticket was made up from the leaders and manipulators of the late Demoorntlo county convention, which was composed of a majority ofMexloans, aim wuuse uairinan was "Kinaiy" tur nlshed with a list of names or those whom ho was to appoint as delegates, and as one of the active members of the alleged ring, openly stated, a few days ago, that "they had the power and they proposed to use It," It Is a little difficult to see how the publication of a "manu factured" ticket could be an "election eering dodge against the Mexicans and their sympathizers," except on tbe ground that It was all true. Entombed Alive. This morning about 8 o'clock, while (bo laborers and rock masons were at work on the Kalteyer buildings, on North Florea afreet, near Main street, a very serious accident obenrred which .came near being the death of one of the men', a rock mason named Olasser, who Uvea on Mill street.

Mr. Olaiser was Just under the wall, placing nrocklnposl- , lion, when the gravel and dirt fell ' crushing him against the rock and com- pletely burying him. It was some two or three minutes before the workmen could be Induced to approach the dan- ! gerous place near enough to help their ) unfortunate fellow workman out of his I premature grave. They scratched the dirt from about his head to give htm air, and In ten minutes he was helped over to the drug store where his bruises wero eared for.
