"A WORD TO TEE WISE." We have received information from the West, that a dangerous insurrection of the negroes had been discovered and quelled.— Had this discovery not been made, just at the time it was, the result cannot be com- prehended. Instigated, and doubtless led on bj white men and Mexicans, with a plan well matured, and all the arms necessary for a general massacre, the infuriated ne- groes goaded on by immaginary wrongs, painted in hideous colors, by abolition incen- diaries, such a movement could not have re- sulted in less than the murder of hun- dreds and perhaps thousands of white per- sons—...

We, the Senior Publisher, having returned firofli a visit to Houston and Galveston, are pleased to be able to speak, flattering indeed, of the growth and prosperity of the two pitees. Freo from the curse of an epidemic our sister towns of the bay and bayou are rapidly growing in wealth and importance, each vieing with each for the golden apple of their prosperity—the interior trade. Im- mense quantities of new and splendid goods of every description are hourly arriving for disposition in those markets or for re-ship- ment to the interior, while an influx of country produce is amply rewarding the merchant's toil and anxiety, and will ulti- mately abundantly repay him for all his trouble and risk. Upon our third and fourth pages the rea- der will find various advertisements from both Galveston and Houston merchants.— These gentlemen we know to be safe and re liable in ail that pertains to their respective avucacious and prompt and faithful in...
