Houston, March 12. 1870. A very marked improvement has taken place in the editorial manage- ment of the San Antonio Express. We are glad to see the evidences of Mr. Wheelock's writings in that paper. Texas trade with Kansas City and St. Louis is increasing very rapidly. The truth is, if New Orleans does not hurry op her Texas Railroad she will lose a large portion of onr trade. The rise in government, securities and decline in gold has created a general dqpiand for a modification of the tariff and a reduction of taxes. High taxation is no longer necessary to the government credit. The feeliEgs of some of the recent converts to Radicalism, like pussy's tail, are always under somebody's feet to be tramped on. And there are some men so wicked as to scop on them on purpose to hear them squall. Don't be too sensitive, gentlemen.

FOREIGN NEWS. England. The Saturday Review says the re- pression of lawlessness in Ireland should precede any legislation. An able communication on the Irish question appears in the Times to*day, occupying nearly one page. The writgr analyzes and iastifies the Irish land bill as a noble and com- prehensive measure; points out thf defects ol the bill, and shows they may be easily remedied. The Pall Mall Gazette says it is un- able to admire the American policy of seeking to appropriate all the odds and ends of territory in the market, regardless of the character of the peo- ple or value of the land. Mr. Grladstone to-day received a deputation of Irish people on the sub- ject of the land bill row before Par* liament, and in response to the ad- dress, promised every necessary mod- ification in the details of the bill.
