* % O- o ■II [coMinnncATKD.1 The State Election. Mr. Editor: I observe that the press of Texas generally, your own included, seems to be exer- cised at present, upon the subject of the approach- ing State election, and that the names of various gentlemen have been mentioned in connection ■with the offices of Governor and Lieut. Governor. This it all right and proper. The merits of pro- bable candidates should be freely discussed, to insure the success of the most meritorious, and those best able to discharge the duties required of the incumbents. Without allusion to many names which present themselves to my mind for the first office, 1 beg to offer for the consideration of the people of Texas, for the second, that of F. R. Lubbock, Esq., of Harris county. Mr* L. is an old and well known citizen, of enlarged and liberal views, whose every impulse is for the glory and prosperity of Texas. His long resi- dence in the State, and the high appreciation in which he is held by those who kno...

There is a Tongue in every Leaf. There is a tongue in every leaf, A voice jn every rill ; A voice that Speaketh everywhere. In flood and fire, through earth ami air ! A tongue that's never still., •Tis the Great Spirit wide diffused Through everything we see, That with our spirits communeth Of things mysterious—Lit? anil Death, Time and Eternity! I see Him in the blazing sun, And in the thunder-eloud, * I hear Him in the mighty roar, That rusheth through the forest hoar, When winds are piping loud. I see Him. hear Him, everywhere, In all things—darkness, light, Silence, sound ; but most of all, When Slumber's dusky curtains fall, At the dead hour of night. lfeel Him in the silent dews, By greatful earth betrayed, I feel Him in the gentle showers, The soft south wind, the breath of £o\\ ers, The sunshine and the shade. And yet (ungrratful that I am), I've turned in sullen mood From all th^e things, whereof He said, Wht n the great whole was finished, That thev were " very good." My s...

How often we think, when reading the news, Ah editor could please if he'd choose— But such a paper as this, why, all must agree, That a thing of less interest they never did see. And, lest you persist in your steady denial We'll give you a lew of an'editor's trials. First, a pretty young lady, sprightly and fair, With a paper in hand, waltzes up t« a chair, And hastily glancing o'er all that she saw, She throws it aside with a muttered " pshaw!" No marriages here— T think it is queer. When there's ever so many, They don't publish any. . Sere's poetry, And battles, Sketches, And sieges, And tales, And law suits, Without ending, A pending; But no-picnics, or concerts, or parties for me, Such trash on paper I never did see. Then a nice young man, with a cane'and by certainly thinks .Jie is cutting a dash, Looks over the list of plays and soirees, As i...

«PEL Liter fit Nicaragua- " ^ We clip the following interesting Nicara- gua news from the New Orleans True Delta: Southwest Pass, Feb. 17.—The steam- ship Texas, from San Juan del Norte on the 10th inst., has arrived. The Texas arrived out on the 4th inst., and the Tennessee on the 8th. The Orizaba, from San Francisco, arrived at San Juan del Sur ou the 2d. and sailed again for Panama on the 3d, where she arrived on the 5th. The Tennessee took the passengers of the Texas aud proceeded to Aspinwall, when they went to Panama by railroad and took the Orizaba for San Francisco. The mail steamer had not arrived at Panama when the Tennessee left Aspinwall, though she was over due one week. It ■was reported that the passengers in waiting would be forwarded by the Orizaba. The Transit Route was not open when the Texas left, but from the manner in which the recruits were proceeding, there is tittle doubt but that it will soon be clear. Col. Lock ridge had been waiting for reinforcements and ...

\1 *é Our Next Representative. Mr. Editor: The Spring Term of our District Court is rapidly approaching, and the first Mon- day in August is not far off, when the electors of this (Grimes) county will be required to elect from among them, some suitable person to repre- sent their joint interest in the next Legislature. Would it not be well for those who feel a deep solicitude for the general prosperity of our State, •nd the best interest of Grimes county, to consult together (during Court week) and propose for the consideration of the people, the name of some gen-, tleman whose patriotism and good sense would' enable him to hold himself above party and party trick? Looking alone to the best interest of the State, and particularly that of his immediate con- stituents. I am not authentically advised as to the intentions or inclinations oí our present Repre- sentative—whether he desires or intends being a candidate or not—neither am 1 disposed to array myself, or engender in others, a ...

flow the Deacon Caught the Boya. * In a certain county in Alabama lived, and lives there still, an orderly, upright, prayer-loving, church-going deacon. The only fault he had, if fault you call it, was, that he would keep a little whisky about the house, and it was whispered, no doubt by slanderous and defamatory tongues, that the good deacon would now and then be seen mistaking, by some ocular delucon, a glass for a door; that is, be seen walking into the splendid mirror by way of egress- from the house. . Another fault of this prayer-loving dea- con, was, that he was never known to offer any of said whisky to his guests. It made no difference with him, if you were cold or hot, wet or dry, sick or well, you never got hold or taste of his whisky. Sudden cramps of the bowels, nausea of the stomach, were never known to draw a stopper from his decanter. So many efforts had been made to open the deacon's heart upon this mat- ter, that despair had almost fastened upon the minds of his nu...
