OIBc*, On Vonrtli-Slrctt. LAMPASAS, TEXAS. * W-- P' BF.AT.T. Editor fliursday Warning, May 3,11. Majok Jones, of the Frontier Battalion, is having a lively time in Kimble and Menard counties. He has some twenty-five or thirty prisoners under arrest, and is after a lot of others. We see from a Baltimore paper that the murder of the mail rider by W. S. Douglass, ouce a resident of this place, has caused great ex- citement in West Virginia, and is still likely to result in the lynching of the murderer. The United States District Attorney is in the prosecution, and the trial will be one of great «interest. We believe the political feeling all over the Union is more quiei and less disturbed by bitterness and acrimony, than for many years past. The forebodings which were so dreaded by those opposed .to the present Administration are passing away, and a sentiment of confi- dence and hope is taking root in the public mind. If good results and fáir dealing are exhibited, we, as patriots and ...

So well assured are the people, as made known through their Representatives in Congress and the President, that AO emergency exists for an early meeting oí Congress. Ií is a mat- ter of gratitude and joy all over the country.

* HI* PUBLISHED WEEKLY. tec Effect of IHe War In litis Country New York Sun. Thongh our commercial rela- tions with the two belligerents are Comparatively insignificant, the clash of arms in the East cannot but have au immediate and con- siderable bearing upon American commerce. Of lute years Russia, and Turkey and her appanages, have furnished England and the Continent—principally England— with an average yearly supply of grain, amounting in the aggregate to about 45,000,000 bushels. This supply will not only be cut oil', but the two belligerents, with probably together not less than a million and a half of men in the field to feed, will be constantly in the market as buyers of grain and provisions. Any grain deficiency in Europe, «rising from war or other causes, must be substantially supplied by the United States. Owing to a perfected system of cheap rail and Water transportation from the grain growing districts of the West to the Atlantic sea-board, American grain has of late ye...
