*A' .WAN BURNED AT' .2'l STAKE IN TEXAS. Frere TeE 5EW TO8 TRI5UNE.] · BUeCANAN, Texas, April 25th, 1860.-Allow me a place in your columns for the following recital of a tale of horror; but one of many of which this section of our country is the theatre, but which for obvious reasons are kept out of public prints; and especially out of those honest and patriotic sheets which would hold them in their true colors to the detestation of en enlight ened people. A young man whose name and residence I shall suppress for fear of harrowing the feelings ofa found mother and sisters to whom ignorance is blibs, came into this country as a colporteur; he had a valuable stock of books, maps, &o., consisting mainly of Bibles and religious works, the standards of the Christian world, histories (Prescott's and others), school books and atlases, and unfortunately for him, a few copies of the " Impending Crisis," and some tracts favoring the cause of freedom. These were seen by some intense pr...

THE MILITARY POWERS OF EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 29 August 1860
THE birLITARY POWERs of EUROPE.-If we regard the three greatest European military powers in their most prominent feature, we find that France is an artillery, Austria a cavalry, and Prussia an infantry power. The artillery system is Napoleonic, despotic; the cavalry system, aristocratic and patrician; the infantry defensive and democratic. Bonapartism, how evger, like Janus,wears a double mask, which on one side displays the "principles of 1789; " hence the infantry, especially the light troops, have great attention paid to them in the French - army. And as democracy and revolution are permanently.advanced to fetch the chesnuts out of the fire for Napoleon, so the French light infantry sklirmish before the cannon, while tihe great despotic blows fellow over their heads. This combination drove the Austrians across the Minicio, for the Austrian infantry, even the. numerous riflemen, are slow and awkward.in their movements. Supposing that the next con tinental war will be between F anc...

PRtEVENTION O. A?" ,tKTUPTCY.-Mlr. David Smith, an extensive wholesale leather merchant of Glnswow, and a county magistrate, has sub mitted a proposal to the Attorny-General of England for the prevention of bankruptcy, by enacting proper regulations for the preservation of solvency. Mr. Smith has been studying tlhe system of banlkrubtcy i, other countries es pecially those of France, Belgium, and Ham burgh. This study hais suggested the expedient of enacting stringent rules, under severe penal ties, for compelling every maln who trades in credit to balance his books at least once a year; and providing that where a trader, at the end of any year, finds that he has lost all his own capital and is below par, it shall be imperative on him, under the penalty of imprisonment, to call a meet. ing of his creditors and lay before them a state inent of his affairs. M?tr. Smith supports iis proposition, not merely on the obvious ground, that every man who trades on credit is a trustee for his ...
