I r THE STATESMAN. AUSTIN. TEXAS. Attention is ra!'rd to the notice signed by Maj. Joe II. Stewart secre- tary of the coming meeting of ex -Confederates who served in the Army of Northern Virginia. The French government in com- pliance with the advice of the com- manding general of Algeria has put a stop to the return of troops from Tunis. The entire effective force of France in Tunis i3 15000 men and these are officered by Frenchmen. ' It is reported from New Haven that the Winchester arms company of that city the Union Metalic Cartridge company of Bridgeport and a large cartridge company in Lowell have combined "and in future act together as a syndicate controlling tho cart- ridge manufacturing industry of the country." Within three years the exports of grain from New Zealand have doubled; and though the area under cultivation is not yet large enough to cut any considerable figure in the world's food supply it is worth while to notice the fact that a railroad now- being built will...

THE STATESMAN. AUSTIN. TEXAS. Unmarried marriageable girls big- gin to look happy. Leap year is com- ing. Congress will do a wise thing l.y raising the limit on letter weight to one ounce. The shadows of the temporary cap- itol rest oa an eternal mudhole a lpgacy from the late city administra- tion. Blaine offers 81.75' to every man woman and chil l in the United States to be made president. Who will eo him 25 cent3 better. The Republicans are watching closely and doing all they can to make the Democrats drop the tariff reform issue. They would then take it up and in 1884 retain thereby their lease on the federal government. Organs have had their day except those that are the organs of princi- ples. A paper that assumes the role of personal organ soon gathers its own winding sheet about and lays itself away in permanent rest. TnE Examiner speaks out nobly when it says: And now let U3 all be thankful that Culberson and Wellborn voted lor Carlisle. Let us hereafter only re- member tha...

y 4 V THE STATESMAN. AUSTIN. TEXAS "Wednesday last at the opening of the session of the Farmers' Congress of the United .States in Louisville Ky. President Hudson in his annual address among other things said: "Our farmers do not understand w hy so much time and money are used in nurturing the manufacturing inter- ests while that of agriculture is wholly neglected. We are here to excite the farmer to the interest of his own welfare. That an unjust tax is oppressing free labor and the best interests of agriculture none can deny. The farmer only demands jus- tice. We are to show the govern- ment where it errs. We must have a commissioner of agriculture in the cabinet at 'Washington. No will watch our foreign relations in respect to that interest which must ever be greatest. He will be enabled to se- cure to the farmers and laborers bet- ter results. There is not a farmer in all this country who understands farming as he should. How igno- rant then must be our cabinet and national coun...

The Galveston News by a process of reasoning sustains the governor's proposition to cut down taxation for general revenue purposes. A counterfeit of the standard silver dollar has appeared. It is good imitation but the letters and flsrures i.re darker than those of the genuine coin. Senator Edmunds' new civil rights bill it is suggested ought to be enti tled "a bill to enable all colored per sons to transfer to the federal courts any and all cases in which they a i:l:csted." 1 1 will be a great gain to the just u I ministration of the la vs and a sav i:ir in the expense to carry out the lr;uitl Tit's n-rwiiirieiidation that Uni t .-' S'.aUv di.-.trict attorneys and ...
