Wilson, b pore patriot, a devoted Christian, and a man of brilliant mind, departed this life at his residence, near that town, on the 7th inrt. In his death, Texas has lost one of her best sons; one who has never hesitated at the call of his country: and who, in her dark dajs, shed his blood in its defence, and wore chains in Mexican dungeons for the love he bore it. To-day the whole State mourns for the dead, and sadness Is on the hearts of the people. In the years to come, when the history of this land of Texas is well written, the name of Wilson will brighten its fairest pages.
