f THE MORNING STAR. eaatoa Meaday Jaa. 184. JE?We we aulhorized and requested to state that Maj. Moreland declines the nomination of Mayor and wish- es net to be considered a candidate as his absence from the city and his professional engagements when here would prevent him from devoting his time to the duties of the office. JE3A card nominating Judge Thomwok for the of- " fiee of Mayor was omitted in our last because it was not marked for any number of insertions and we could not 'know how many times his friends wished it published. All advertisements announcements &c should be mark- ed or they will of course appear but once. JCj-We are also authorized to state that Georoe Fish- " er wishes his name whhdrrwn from the list of candidates for Recorder. In a former article we called the attention of our read- ers to the fact that the issuing of the promissory notes at their present depreciated value is in reality contracting a loan on most disadvantageous terms. It amounts to the A...

THE'MORNING STAR. Mo'nstoHVTHCsday Jan. 7 1840. JTf- Owing to the length of oar article on the Health of the City several are unavoidably omitted. THE HEALTH OF HOUSTON. Mr. Burgin the city Sexton has published a list of the names of all persons who died in this city during the last season. This is proper and trill scire to correct the reports so industriously circulated prejudicial to the repu- tation of Houston for health. The table of Mr. Burgin enables us to compare the mortality of Houston with that of other places which "have been visited with epidemic Yellow Fever. This we shall briefly do at this time. It should be borne in mind that the last season was one of extraordinary fatality throughout ill the country bordering the northern shores of the Gulf of Mexico. A malignant pestilence swept over the southern and south- western United States and a part of Texas the past year like the Black Plague of the fourteenth century and th Cholera of the nineteenth and other fatal scourg...

THE MORNING STAR. Monaten Wednesday Jan. 8 1840. The advantages direct and indirect to be derived from obtaining a loan are numerous and immense. We have on former occasions touched on the great pecuniary bene- fit to accrue from a loan. There arc others of scarcely less importance which we shall briefly mention. The moral advantages can scarcely be appreciated. The loan once obtained we are accredited throughout the world as a responsible nation and in this view the loan will prove of hardly less importance than our political recognition. The thousands and tens of thousands of persons in the United States and Europe who are tempted by the amazing fertility of our soil and our delightful cli" mate to emigrate to Texas but are waiting for some evi- dence of the permanence of our institutions will come in dense crowds to our shores bringing wealth and moral and physical strength so soon as they shall learn that the wary capitalists are willing to embark their large means in our countr...

Never look sad nothing's so bad As getting familiar with sorrow; Treat him to-day in a cavalier way. And he'll seek other quarters to-morrow. Long you'd not weep would you but peep At the bright side of every trial ; Fortune you'll find is often most kind When chilling your hopes with denial. Let the sad day carry away Its own little burthen of sorrow; Or you may lose half of the bliss That comes in the lap of to-morrow. When hope is wrecked pause and reflect If error occasioned your sadness; If it be so hereafter you'll know Hon- to steer to the harbor of gladness. Sh...

Lottie as we may fear the hostility of our enemy yet a peace with her would be immediately productive of the moat im- portant' remits. The trade of the country on the Rio Grande will be carried on through Texas so aeon as per- manent peace shall be established. The facilities for car- rying on this trade through Texas will augment its amount to an incalculable extent: and it .will probably prove the most lucrative in the world for a long period of years. To these who shall first engage in the internal Mexican trade using proper precautions against accidents by the way and irresponsible agents it will prove a mine of pure silver. Peace being established with Mexico emigration will be speedily attracted to the rich and beautiful country on the Guadeloupe San Antonio and other streams of our western frontier. In c...

? - THE MORNING STAR. Moaston Wednesday Jan. 39 1840. j TEXAS AND ENGLAND. England has declined refused to recognise the inde- pendence of Texas. Our commissioner appointed to ne- gotiate Ja treaty of recgnition with that government has returned. What coarse onght we to pursue in this mat- ter? In order to come to a right decision on this subject it is necessary briefly to recapitulate the leading circum- stances of the case; and from the publicity of diplomatic negotiations in modern times our statements will be found we believe in the main correct In April 1836 the battle of San Jacinto was fought which utterly destroyed the Mexican rule and extinguish ed all vestiges of power and precluded any attempt of hers j to exercise authority in Texas. This was nearly four years ago. Since that time Texas has enjoyed without interruption an organized government has exercised with- in her borders all the attributes and functions of sovereign. ty in the fullest manner and has been and is de ...

Weakness. The most decided case of weakness we hare seen lately is recorded in the following extract from the Police report of the Picayune. John M" Donald was discovered by the watchman late at night unable te give any account of himself. When he appeared before the Recorder he said that ha was a poor unfortunate creature had no friends and no money. The Recorder reprimanded him for his weakness and ad- rised him to do better in future. John promised to take the advice. John must hare been 'weak indeed and the Recorder did well fo reprimand him for it. If we had been on the bench we would hare said to him in the style of a well knewn Ex-recorder "this practice of having neither friends nor money is obtaining to too great an extent in this community and ought to be stopped." Too must suf- fer some I send yon down for thirty days. Go along now and don't let me catch you having no friends nor money again. Its a very bad practice very. Experience petrifies the Heart.
