THE STATESMAN. AUSTIN. TEXAS. TIIUSRDAY - DEC. 14, 1882 ILLITERACY IX THE UXITED STATES. The subject of illiteracy in the United States is just now coming in for a share of miblic attention, the census reports regarding it having been placed before the public There are some verv curious features con nected with the reports, principal among which is the fact that in Dite of the abolition of slav ery and the general spread of common free schools in all the states, illiteracy has increased. The illiterates above the age of ten years, In 1880. were 4,923,451 unable to read. and 6,239,958 unable to write. The number of persons above that age unable to write in 1870 was 5,658,144. The relation of illiteracy, therefore, to population shows some decrease, while absolute illiteracy has increased. An attempt has been made to charge the increase in illiteracy to foreign inimi gration, but this will not do as an ex planation. There is said to lie con- eiderable illiteracy among the Ger mans, bu...

Tom Ochiltree will be a Demo crat before his term expires. It is the only way his re-election can be assured. It is told that Vanderbilt and Gould, , while in New York city, which is their home, always keep near them armed guards. While there have been thousands of murders in New York city during the last forty-four years, there have been but thirty-seven hangings. An exchange very properly says that those that complain most about a newspaper are those who make a habit of borrowing it from some real subscriber, who does not complain. Fon eighty years this French spoli ation matter hits been on the tapis. Webster and Clay in their congres sional lives were on committees that reported in favor of the claims, and y-t they are not paid.

THE STATESMAN. ACSTIX. TEXAS. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. A. AVilkie, who for sometime pxst has Ihvq confined in the county for lunacy, was yesterday set at lilier ty.he having sulHeiently recovered to warrant his release. On Sunday evening and Monday morning some oilicers of this city went to the International and Great North ern southbound trains to intercept Ik-rt Elam, who was reported to be on his way to Laredo. Elam is the Rent who murdered Henry Daniels in JJaniels; and a private telegram re ceived in this city stated that he was supposed to have sloped for Mexico, via Laredo, hence the watchfulness of our ever vigilant oilicers. There was no use whatever in hunt ing for news Monday.

This alUuunt Creole, while young and wild and sowing his wild oats, took for his mistress the favorite grandchild of Marie Lavon, the famous Voudoo tjueen, who died in Louisiana about two years ago.
