"3M."' -ju . tl Wi.' '- iariiB"HKw - o-r- ! fX jri; sfral anil f txmwxl Travis Comity. Travis county situated on both sides of the Colorado river having Austin the capital of the State for its county seat contains a variety of soil surface and timber. The western part above Austin bordering the Colorado river for several miles on either side is rocky and mountainous with narrow rich valleys most of which are watered by bold never- failing springs affording excellent fa- cilities for irrigation. A number of these have been satisfactorily used for the purpose of refreshing at will the vegetable gardens and orchards which make this section the abarim of the county. Vegetation here is not dependent upon the natural sea- sons. It grows luxuriantly and yields profusely as well in dry as in wet weather. These gardens are a sure and independent living to their own- ers many of them a source of cash revenue not by any means to be dis- regarded. Nearly all of these locali- ties are difficult ...

Jf- vs-rs jl : i -K Advertising! We believe that a practical system of advertising is a necessary adjunct to a vigorous busi- ness. Most certainly it is a legiti- mate road to success. We have a ' hopeful Confidence that the paper will merit and receive an extended circu- lation in a short time. Every farmer mechanic manufacturer merchant and stock raiser in Texas ought to have it. The young ladies and the young gen- tleMen of the whole State ought to have it. It is a Texas institution and has been inaugurated expressly for the information as well as for the edification of the people. "We have a right to presume that intelligent business men who wish to make known the merits of whatever they may have in hand will employ our advertising columns at our price for their benefit as they do other respec- table mediums for a similar purpose. An advertisement ought to make known everything which the adver tiser wishes to be known and if this course is pursued although it may at any time be ...

The details of that battle arc familiar to some of our readers from personal experience. A single extract from Houston's life is here given as indicating the tone and temperament of the Commander-in-Chief on that occasion. His biog- rapher says: " The night which preceded the slaugh- ter of San Jacinto rolled anxiously away and brightly broke the morning of the last day of Texian servitude. Before the first gray lines shot up the East three strange taps of a drum were heard in the camp and seven hundred soldiers sprang to their feet as one man. The camp was busy with the soldier hum of preparation for battle but in the midst of it all Houston slept on calmly and pro- foundly. The soldiers had eaten the last meal they were to cat till...

Industrial Independence in Pence and War. So far as a nation's welfare is affec ted by foreign commerce all history proves that it is richer and more powerful in proportion as it exports more manufactured products imports more raw material and especially as it consumes more tropical commod- ities. The character of the trade and condition of England France and Germany contrasted with Portu- gal Spain and Ireland plainly prove the principle. There is instruction in the facts which establish it. The nation which consumes the greatest quantity of tropical commodities will always be that of which the ag- ricultural and manufacturing produc- tions is relatively the greatest and which consumes the greatest quanti- ty of its own products. But a nation must not be regarded merely and solely as a merchant is because it is a producer as well as a trader while the merchant is only an exchanger of products. For the same reason the immediate profit of trade is not the only thing to be considered ...

' No man connected with the history of Texas was engaged in a greater variety of useful and important pub- lic services during the days of the Re- public than Gen. Edward Burleson. A short biographical sketch of his life prepared by one of his intimate friends some years ago says: " Gen. Edward Burleson was born in Buncombe county North Carolina in 1798. His father James Burleson emi- grated to Kentucky thence to Alabama where he was married in his seventeenth year ; thence lie emigrated to Virginia and was elected Lieut. Colonel of militia in 1821. In 1824: he removed to Tennes- see. Soon afterwards he was elected Col- onel of militia in that State. and held the office until 1830. lie then visited Texas on an inspection tour returned to Tennes- see and in March 1831 removed with his family and soon thereafter settled in Bas- trop county where he resided until 1847."

lSJK. naSHBBBraC3ESKES m mul Icvdunrtl. Many persons desiring to advertise with ns urge as an objection to doing so the excuse that our paper is not printed often enough that if it were a Aveekly or daily the inducement would be greater. Granting this to be so it does not detract anything from the advantages which our monthly presents as an advertising medium. Being gotten up with at- tractive features and printed on a heavy article of paper it is preserved and read and re-read and is often re- mailed to different sections of the country. While the daily or weekly is mostly valued for its local or tele- graphic news and is often destroyed before the day's end the monthly is preserved for future reference on ac- count of the variety of useful infor- mation it contains on matters of every day concern. "We are inclined to the belief that this and other facts that could be urged in support of our monthly as an advertising me- dium will be sufficient to demon- strate its usefulness in th...

?i Hjf fT Editorial Correspondcnco. Bagdad Williamson County October 30th 18G8. J This small village is situated in a point of timber at the foot of the hilly region above Austin and distant twenty-live miles. It is sui rounded on the North East and South by a beautiful rolling country watered by the tributaries of Brushy Creek. The land is of the black prairie order and very rich. The most pleasing land- scape views are presented to the eye. Nature hero seems to have almost outstripped herself in the beauty of her scenery. The village of Bagdad has three stores which command the retail trade of the immediate neigh- borhood and notwithstanding its unimportance as a place of business its situation on the main road lead- ing from Austin to Burnett and prox- imate localities and the. beauty of the surrounding scenery give attrac- tiviness to the place which rivets the attention of the traveler. The wheat crop in this region has been almost a total failure the present season. No cotton ...

tv K. The Stock Interest. The casual observer of the stock inter- est of Texas will readily conclude that it is not what it was twenty or even ten years ago. When this part of the coun- try was sparsely populated and conse- quently cattle and horses had a wider fresher range no provision beyond an oc- casional looking after was necessary on the part of the stock raiser. Hence the natural increase was greater ; the animals themselves always fat and jolly and the owner the best pleased being in the world as he contemplated the munificent provis- ions which nature had made for stock rais- ing upon the Texas prairies. The saying had passed into a proverb among old Tex- ians that a man could grow rich in Texas on aiiAss. And it was true. The natural net increase of cattle was estimated at forty per cent.' That of horses was not considered so great because among other reasons there was too much risk to be taken in raising them on account of the Indian thefts so common in the country. With...

Gay crowds assemble on the walk Or hold high revel in the hall j Why should they thus an old man mock "With midnight masquerade and ball. Can I not trip the toe as light As any modern beau Brummel ? In line of court I've played the knight To suit the most fantastic belle. Again I'll seek the gay saloon And bow once more at beauty's shrine And should my lady crave a boon I'll pledge it in a cup of wine. I won't be old ! those Christmas bells How glad in youth they seemed to me But now their mournful music swells A note too sad for minstrelsy.

The colonization enterprise which eventually brought the revolution and gave an empire in extent and va- riety to the United States was con- ceived by Moses Austin the father of Stephen as early as 1819. In furth- erance of the scheme he left Missouri his then residence the succeeding year and arrived at Bexar (San An- tonio) in December making applica- tion to the authorities there for per- mission to execute the conceived pro- ject. His memorial was granted in January 1821 by the supreme govern- ment of the Eastern Internal Provin- ces of New Spain at Monterey. It gave permission for the introduction of three hundred families into Texas. In 1821 Moses Austin died leaving the request that Stephen should pros- ecute the enterprise which he had in- itiated. In July 1821 he according- ly set about the...

J.TS5EMJOTB3iKrrS StJGAit Caxk and Pink Woods Land. The New Orleans Price Current lias an article under this heading which has attracted our attention ; and the success of raising the Louisiana cane on the uplands of Louisiana and Mississippi as there shown is a fact that deserves consideration in this part of Texas. If every family could successfully raise enough sugar at home to supply all their wants it would be that much money clearly gained. An acre of tropical cane will supply all the wants of a large family and the experiment even in this altitude is worth making. There can bo no question as to success on the river and creek bottom lands. t The experiment on the jmi'ics is worth attention. The Price Current says that the cane grown on the up lands sometimes shows a growth of twenty-two joints and though not so large as that produced in the rich al- luvial lands is said to be richer in saccharine matter.
