Houston, February 15. 1870. DEATH OF SOBERS KINNEY. It is *with sorrow that we record the death of our brother, Somere Kin- ney, of the Houston Times. He bas been for sometime confined to Lis hou*e with consumption, and many timeB his family and friends have been encouraged with the prospect of his early return to his duties. Only ls6t week we were informed that he was improving so rapidly as to give.assu- rance of his being able to attend to business in a few days, but in his case, as often happens in consumption, the rally for health was delusive, and on Monday, at 9 o'clock a. m., he died. Mr. Kinney was boin in Peaneyl* vania, but has been a resident of Texas for twenty yeare. He was a gentleman of great energy, and even his disease could not subdue it. His capacity as a writer was able and forcible, and he threw his whole power into every article he prepared for the public. The grave covers all differences of opinion, and we mourn with the friends and family of Mr Kinney. His f...

With the entire approbation of Bishops Smith and Cummins, the vestry granted the use of the church building to the pas- tor of the Presbyterian Cbarch.
