mm . i v s wu Houston, June 8. 1870- Some of the Republicans, who stand forward to oppose the mad schemes of the Radicals will figure some of these days in more prominent and hon- orable positions, than they now occu- py. Let Radicals remember this aDd see if it does not come to pass. Upon a careful examination of the bill to establish the judicial districts, it seems to us to be as a whole a fair bill. There may be some districts to which objection can be made, but it would be a herculean task to give satisfaction to all* Doubtless, when injustice may be made apparent, the bill will be amended, before its pas- sage, and thus general satisfaction be meted out. With the small districts provided for, we cannot see the necessity of separate Criminal Courts, to entail additional expense upon the State or Counties, and we feel sure that if the people of#he Counties were con- sulted, a large majority would oppose their establishment.

When we first read the announce- ment that a bill had been reported favorably upon in the Legislature for making an appropriation for cleaning ont the Colorado River, we thought it mnst be a mistake.

Some twenty-five or thirty miles above the month there is a ratt com- pletely across the river, which it would take upon a moderate estimate -a half a million of dollars to remove. Below the raft the river spreads ont into,{shallows, and at no place can three feet of water befonndin low tides to enter Matagorda Bay. After entering the bay, Dog Island reef rims from the main land to the pen- insula, and in low tides a vessel drawing three feet of water could hardly pass.
