SMfeklg €dqxty§. HOrSTON. TEXAS. «■ H. CPlHUre. Editor and proprietor. The Iron Oppor tnnlty. We should be glad to hear of capital being em- barked in Iron works in fhia State. There la a belt of Iron ore covering not less than two or three thousand square miles of territory io this State,of great richness, and capable of supply- ing the Confederacy with iron. The iron is also of a quality unsurpassed by any in Europe or America. The supply is inexhaustible. It is within easy reach of navigation now, and the belt baa so less than three live railroads pointing towards it. The capital is in the country ; all, that is wanted is the disposition. Such works being established now, would se- cure a start befinre the end of the war which would make them permanent mines of wealth to the owners. There is, and always will be, plenty of demand for iron in Texas. It is a shame that the pots and kettles and iron rods that are used in Anderson, Cherokee, Smith,Upshur, Busk,etc., should all be impo...

The bridge across the Rap- pahannock being commanded by the enemy in such a manner as to render it madness to attempt to cross by that means, the whole of o^r retreat- ing force took to the river, which they forded. The number which fell inlo the h&nds of the enemy is about fifteen hundred. We learn that the 6-h North Carolina regiment fell into their hands, and that about four hundred of Hay's bri- gade also failed to escape. The fight is represented to have been of the most terrible character, and when we take Into consideration the great disparagement in the two forces engaged, it is remarkable that any of our gallant men escaped at all. For the s^ace of three j miles in an open field, we learn that the ground seemed literally swarmed with Yankees, who, to adopt the expression of one of the...
