AN EVENTFUL HISTOKY. Tho Story of tlio Alamo In San Antonio, In 1730, 13 families, representing the noblest blooi of Spain, cnilgrntod from tlio Canary Islands to San Antonio, They camo under tbo protection ol tho Viceroy of Mexico, nnd added largely to tho vigor and strength of tho Colony. Samo ol tko most refined people in this city to-day traco their lineago directly to tho last nomod emigrants. After tho new accession to tho Colony, tho namo of San Antonio gavo way to that ol Villa do San Fernando, in compliment to to tho King of Spain. This now title to tho settlement was retained half a century, and during thnt period Texas booamo a soporato province, with tho villa for its capital, being tributary to tho Stato of Coahttila. Iu thoso years quito a numbor of tho missions iu tho provionoo woro united with othors or given up on account of tho groat ex ponso involved in tholr maintenance That of San Antonio do Valoro, built on tho Rio Grando in 1703, was con solidated with tbo mission nt this point in 1718 and tho old namo resumed iu 1781 Tbo namo Bozar was then used, and is to-day applied to tho county in which San Antonio is located. After its removal to this point, tho Valero Mission had soveral locations, but it finally became tho "Church of tho Alamo," tho first stono of that otructure being laid May 8, 1745. Tho plaza up on which this odlGco was erected was surrounded with cottonwood (alamo) trees, and from that clrcumstanco tho namo was dorlvod. This church was secularized in 1781, and to day is used by a largo mercantile firm for tho storago of goods. Tho Unitod States does not, wo believe, contain anothorstructuro around whoso walls cluslor such daring and despcrato warlike associations vb cling about tho Alamo, whoso very stones seem to tell tbo heavens of tho fearful work ol blood and enrnago which they have witnessed. For nearly a contury tho stronghold of tho Church militant was tho theatro of many a sanguinary strife, and again and again what is now tho pcacelul valloy ol tho San Antonio River was drenched in tho blood of tue cessivo hosts fighting with savago and civilized fury for tho possjsslon of the Alamo. But it was tho attack of the Mexican Goneral Santa Ana which made' this fortress as immortal as the Pass of Thermopylae In tho Alamo wore 144 Texan patriots, whllo Santa Ana bad 4,000 troops, and tho flower of tbo Mexican army, uoionoi uenunm went out from among tho little band to seek rclntorcomcnts, and when un successful, with certain death staring him in tho faco, ho went back to his comrades "heroically as Regulus re turned to Carthago." Tho attack bo gan, and lor ton days tho Mexican com mander kept up his cannonado and ro peatedly advanced to tho walls, only to bo ropulscd each timo with torriblo slaughter. Three days lator, tit mid night, tho final assault was made, tho walls at length bolng scaled nnd the heroic defenders, fighting inch by inch, till the list ono fell dead. When tho Alcalde of San Antonio was summoned by Santa Ana to tho Alamo, bo found, on tho wall, Travis, with a ball in his head; Evans shot just as, with match in hand, ho was going to blow up tho maerazino: Bowio horriblv slaughtered In his slok bed, and David Crockett dead, with tho bodies of his foes heaped tip around htm. Teasels. Tho toasols which aroused in woolen mills for tho purpose of raising tho fib or out of tho yarn when tho oloth has loft tho loom aro a natural product, and not an' artificial ono as thoso ttnac quaintod with woolon manufacture might bo led to Eupposo, and though wiro cards havo ropoatcdly been tried for this purpose, thoso teasels are still holding tholr place as the only suitable material for effectually raising tho nap without any unduo dnmago to the fiber. A largo amount of teasels aro grown in Bolglum. They aro sown in spring. In August or September thoy are trans planted, and twelve months after this tho first crop is gathorod, Tho heads must bo gathered beforo all tho flowers havo bloomed, elso tbo points aro dried too much and lose thoir elasticity. The o'der and drier onos aro always pre ferred to tho fresh ones. This plant is found growing wild in Mid lie Europo, but is then useless for manufacturers beoauso in that stato the points aro not bent. In England the cn'tivated plane is grown chiefly in Yorkshiro. Russia also ralsos a good crop in Poland and tho Crimoa. Tho heads, after having boon cut of! tho plant, generally passes at onco into tho hands of tbo dealers. Tho lattur, in Franco, travol in July about tho dis tricts mentioned ubovo, and buy the crops iu tho field, tho price averaging from 25s to COs por owt. Tho dealer then sorts tho tomels, taking out thoso which aro crooked, too thick, or worm eaton; ho removes tho husks, outs tho stems to ono uniform length, ra.igcs them Into first and second qualities, dl vldcs theso again Into cightorton sorts, according to tholr length, and packs tliQiu into largo casks, and soils them nt so much per 1.0C0: a cask of tho smallest slzo holding as many as 150,- 000, whllo ono of tho largor sizes only contains 10,000, but all wolgh four cwt In Russia thoy aro sold by tho cask, in othor parts of Europo by woigbt. As tho torisol Is n cultivated produc Hon of tho thlstlo plant, it follows that its valuo for manufactutiug purposes is onhancod by caroful cultivation. Tlio hooks, which aro small bent leaflets of tho flower, aro gonornlly sot vertically in transposed rows.though in tho French in tho form of a spiral round tho con trnl cono, and closer nt tho bottom than tho top. This leaflet has a strong rib at Its back which is both stiff nnd elastic; tho sides form, so to speak, wings, which nro attached to tho sof tor central coro, and thus form an elastic spring which onnbles tho hook to spring back in work; each hook also leans against its predecessor, so that when tho forco which pulls it is too strong, it turns a Itttlo sideways, nnd thus lets tho resist auco slip off. This Is ono of tho prin cipal qualities of tho natural teasel, and has novor boon reproduced In artificial imitations. In tho well grown toasols tho hooks aro situated horizontally, nud vertically to tho spindle, whllo in tho Inferior ones thoy Inolino as much as 10 dogrcos. Tho French toasels nro pretty regular, tho hook is horizontal, stronger, and long r than others, and drlos better without losing i(s elasticity; tho Gor man kind is less regular or strong, but on that account 13 often proforrcd for fluo qualities of cloth, which requires nioro caroful treatment. Dampness is injurious to nil teasels, which soon mould and thus loso much of their olas tlcity. Chinese Hcds. Thero aro two kinds ol Chlnoso beds. and both are arranged for a oomplcto shutting in by mean3 of hanging cur tains and tapestry. Tho oxoonsivo kind is llko a sort of cage, having a Hat wootlon roof, just tho sizo of tho bod proper, supported nt a hleht of about oight foot from tho floor on four corner posts and two intormediatoonos. Thon thero is a sort of friozo or cntnb laturo work running around hor.'zon- taiiy, abovo and below, so that whn you nro in bod you aro safoly penned in a sort of cago and cannot possibly tnmoio out. Iho carving on theso beds is somotimos vory rich, and thov cost much; but tho ordinary end cheaper Ktnu is mado ot two frames of wood shaped something llko tho skeleton of an old-fashionod "settle," which aro stood up on tho floor, facing each othor. A mattress is placol ou tho projecting part of theso frames, and a couplo of slight sticks across tho top; then cur tains and hangings shut all in, and mako it look as protty ns tho tasto andmoncv of tho owner nro able. Insido, thero is a cotton quilt, laid on tho mattress frame. Tho occupant of tho bed lies on this, hiving a littlo roll of stuff for tho bod, and for a covering a very thick cotton quilt.
