THE REPRESENTATIVE. Richard Nelson, Editor* and Proprietor Republicanism A Necessity. In the prospectus of the Be- presentative we stated that the great necessity for a true Re- publican journal in the city of Galveston induced us to start the publication of this small sheet, in order that we might be instrumental in healing the breach made in the party in this State, and also, aid in advancing the interests of the party, believ- ing as we do that the salvation of the country depends upon the continuance of Republican rule. We know that there are those who claim to be Republican in their belief, and who act in every way calculated to retard the pro- gress of the Republican cause. We know that each cannot have his oWn way in everything, and therefore to be a good party man all must give up some of their peculiar opinions. Only he is a good party man who is willing to sacrifice his own individual interests for the good of the par- ty. Nor should so much be re- quired except when the s...

[For the Representative. To Ada. Deai'est companion of my arduous path ! Onward and upwards 'mid obstructions dire: How often, when the way began to tire, Thy fortitude, the perseverenco hath Soothed the rude passage and the tempests wrath; How can I faint while such a form as thine Still wooes me onward with a cheer divine? My gentle graceful Venus from her bath Of fond affections, Love and Hope and Joy, Dispersing all the doubts my siuil annoy. What thougVt'ae fierce rays of the blazing sun His burnished livery sent the Beauty's Queen ! N'er shot a keener arrow from between Her tender, drooping eyelids when she won The war God Mara, or when beside her spun The glowing wheels of her pearl studed car; While Titan wound his wreathed shell afar; And dimpling waves before her chariot run. Born of the sea foam. Daughter of the night! rthy Neptune, thou my Ainpthitryte. It. X.

THE REPRESENTATIVE' Richard Nelson, Editor and Proprietor. Labor Association. Last Wednesday evening this body assembled and appointed delegates to the Houston con- vention. We regret that so little interest is taken in this great movement. The purpose of the meeting being of interest to all, we justly had a right to expect a full meeting. However, those who did attend were of the most intelligent of the membership, and business was conducted in harmony. Among the speakers we observed Judge Dodge,, Gol. Douglass, District Clerk, Reed, Judge DeBruhl, County Agent, Cuney, Mr. Horn and others who instructed, entertained and amused the audience. After transacting the usual business of the Association, the following gentlemen were put in nomina- tion and elected to represent this county in the Labor Convention to assemble in Houston 011 the 8th, iust. * ' N.

An old Michigauder, who al- ways lifced in wretched poverty, died the other day, and a box lie left contained $20,000 in gold and silver. v, Nearly one hundred French prisoners oi war at Stettin have declared their intention not to re- turn to France, but to remain ill Germany.

THE REPRESENTATIVE Richard Nelson, Editor and Proprietor. The Labor Reform—They Enow Not What They Do. Tlie Daily News which appears to be the special champion of ev- ery cause, no matter what, has devoted a whole column of its precious journal to the question of labor reform, and says, in the whole course of its editorial life so solemn a responsibility has not been felt as under the pres- sure of the subject of labor re- form. We are not surprised at the opposition the News urges against the measure. It says "we -have watched, with much sorrow, the gradual, nay, rapid spread of Labor organization, the begining of'which we are now seeing." We can tell the astute editor of the News that its sorrows and tears are in vain. The Labor lie- form has a foot-hold in the center States and in the great West no one-horse-power can lesson. The News says and admits "the pro- posed object of this movemgn^is to elevate the laboring classes and improve their condition." Certainly is this the avowe...

Fancy me wholly alone down here, with mamma upstairs in the arms of Morpheus, per- fectly fagged out by her trip to New York and back." As Emily finished speaking she rose and began pacing the tioor, showing to advantage her grace- ful figure, with the mellow lamp- light falling vaguely, too, 011 her clear - complexioned, black- eyed 5 beauty. Emily Matthews was cry fair to look upon. Her cousinf Amy. Loth nop, was of the blonde typejpf beauty, and wore a softer expresssion on her delicate featured face than Eini- bX^en in ''that young lady^js lubst amiable liioods^ could boast of.

The Reformer says that "our friends seem to have centered upon Mr. L. W. Stevenson as their choice for standard-bearer in the coming, canvass." All we have to say about the matter is, that a colored man is the choice of the Third Congressional District, and every effort will be made to secure hiTs nomination. It says further: "His great en- ergy in establishing the existing Bureau school system." Let us ask the editor, have not the General Government paid Mr. Stevenson for the service rendered to the colored race in this State ? We are tired of hearing such doc- trine preached to us, and espe- cially when some one wants an office. We, the colored':people, think it is no more than right that we should have one of our race in the Halls of Congress; and to that end we will try to aid one to get there from this State; but ...

SPEECH OV fH£ XXON.

Had I been called upon to plow the held, to plant, to toil, to labor under the direction of some master, such would have been an old familiar calling. But to be called upon to speak to you of that bright boon, so brilliantly foreshadowed in the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, "that all men are created with the equa...
