The publication of a religious newspaper in Texas has been long desired. As early as 1838 the Texas Presbytery of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church recom- mended the Rev. Amos Roark and the Rev. Albert Frazicr as suitable persons to con- duct the cntcrprizc. They did not prose- cute the object as was contemplated; and in the spring of 1844 wc received the ap- pointment as agent of the Colorado Pres- bytery to travel through the church in the United States and solicit aid in men and means to further the interests of the church in this destitute portion of the country. Being apprised of the wishes of the church we corresponded with the Rev. Robt. Fra- zicr and arrangements were made wherebj- he was to come to our State; but for rea- sons satisfactory to himself he abanded the CBtcrprizc. The Synod of Texas feeling deeply ...

It is believed that the measure recom- mended at your last sessiun met with the approbation of decided majorities of both houses of Congress.

The reasons which in- duced roe to recommend the measure at that time still exist; an J I again submit the subject for your consideration and sug- gest the importance of early action upon it. Should the appropriation be made and be sot needed it will remain in the treasury ; should it be deemed proper to apply it in whole or in part it will be accouutcd for as other public expenditures.

The publishing committee is made up of two members from each de- nomination. If in any work com'ng un- der their supervision a single sentiment is objected to by any one of this committee it is erased or the book is rejected so that no sentiment goes to the public without be ing strictly Biblical.

It has fallen to my lot to act in the ca- pacity of a genera! agent and missionary of the American Sunday School Union for the State of Texas and as I conceive that the office is one of great importance and responsibility requiring much of di- vine aid in discharging its duties and an abundant supply of that "wisdom that is from above;" so I look upon the particular field assigned me as being one not sur- passed in interest nor importance espe- cially when its prospective inlluence upon Mexico is considered by any other in the Union.

rjagpggriTBiMi iiiwib II: Key. A J. fflfcGown Editor. VICTORIA TEXAS: SATURDAY JANUARY 16. 1047. CHRISTIAN INFLUENCE IN TEXAS. It is much easier to impress the minds of youth with proper and virtuous senti- ments than to change opinions when once formed. The permanent character of our young and noble State is now just begin- ning to be formed; and now is the time for Christians to act and to act promptly. If our towns cities and neighborhoods are impressed with the belief that it is unne- cessary and useless to respect the Sabbath and cultivate moral sentiments it will be difficult to erase such improper errors. In seeking new homes men of stamina of moral and religious sentiments ever look for communities of the same character and if possible will locate among such in pref- erence to those of opposite habits. It then becomes important in a pecuniary as well as moral point of view that our people of all classes should learn to "Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy:' to lay aside...

Benton. of Missouri had been nominated by the President of the United States to the office of Lieutenant General of the American ar- my the highest military office of our coun- try and known only in time of war. Truly is this an important movement. The Washington correspondent of the Baltimore American (Dec. 11.) writes as follows : . There arc more volunteers to be called into the public service besides those al- ready added to the nine regiments of vol- tmteers. Such at least the Government gives as a probability and a strong one. It was said yesterday that the New Jersc regiment would in all probability speedi- ly be added to the volunteer service. It is probable indeed from certain indications given out that the Government really de sign to make a vigorous war in course of time. I hear indeed as a ...

il f L Rev. Ar. MoDoivh Editor. VICTORIA TEXAS: SATURDAY JANUARY 23. 1847. OUR TOWN. Victoria although founded in 1828 may be called a new town. Previous to the revolution as the capital and only town of Da Leon's colony it became a flourishing little Mexican village containing not over half a dozen American families. It was laid off on a grand scale on a grant from the government of four leagues or 17712 acres of land being six miles square ly- ing on both sides of the Guadalupe river. Of this grant 640 acres in the centre were laid out as the town site the remainder into farm lots of from 8 to 40 acres. The -town is laid out nearly with the cardinal points of the compass fronting handsome- ly upon the eastern bank of the river the streets 20 varas or 55 feet wide the blocks or squares 100 varas or 258 feet square and each block divided into 4 lots each 50 varas or 129 feet square. Near the centre according to Mexican custom are three public squares one for a market another for .mu...

I J r TilE LAST OF THE ILLINOIS. BY CHARLES UCVMAX. Starved Rock is the unpoetical name of -n singular spot on the Illinois river about eight miles south of Ottowa. It is a rocky . bluff rising from the margin of the stream to the height of more than a hundred feet and is only saparated from the main land by a narrow chasm. Its length might proba- bly measure two hundred and fifty feet. Its sides arc perpendicular and there is on- ly one point where it can be ascended and that is by a narrow stair-like path. It is covered with many a conc-likc evergreen and in summer encircled by luxuriant grape and ivy vines and clusters of richly colore flowers. It is undoubtedly the most conspicuous and beautiful pictorial feature of the sluggish and lonclv Illinois and is associated with the final extinction of the Illinois tribe of Indians. The legend which I listened to from the lips of a ven- erable Indian trader is as follows; Many years ago the whole region lying between Lake Michigan and t...
