Here again is presented a new field, and this port and road will elicit the commerce of a new world.

The one, after, a peaceful life spent in labors destined to eradi- cate the most loathsome malady to which is subject, died tranquilly in his home, amid the affluence which was the token of a na- tion's gratitude, tendered byafiectionate rela- tives and mourning friends, regretted by all Christendom, with the proud conciousness. of leaving as his legacy to man, a boon which has circumscribed the empire of the King of terrors and closed the most crowded ave- ¡due to his dark domain. The other, after a life of storm and- tem- pest, of sueh vicisitudes as that of no other mortal presents, chained on a rock in the ocean, despoiled of his power, deserted by his wife, separated from his child, abandoned by his friends; and if reiflorse were not bu- sy at his heart iñ his last moments, he was more or less than man; and the spirit of the great Captain fled 'mid torturing visions of...

The Leviathan Steam Plough. • Mr. Henry Cowing, the ingenious inventor of this very rémarkable and important ma- chine, has, it would appear, recently submit- ted a petition to the Legislature praying its favorable consideration of his invention and its various capabilities. Having been favored with an inspection of the model and all its most minute details, one cannot help feeling very sensibly impressed, that if brought oratander influential auspices, this machine, as its comprehensive titlewould seem to promise, is destined to effect#aii 'en- tire revDitókra in matters of agricultural in- terest, and the mode of cultivating the soil which at present obtains. The scope of i:s utility, would seem to be almost unlimited, whether viewed in its general adaptation to agricultural purposes, the effective grading of railroads, or the navigation of shallow rivera.

The subject is the roost important one before it, yet the minds of most ol the members were made np previ- ous to the session. The matter was discussed in every county in the State during the can. vais. It was acknowledged a great national measure, in which Texas is peculiarly interest- ed. Thr people have given an expression of opinion in its favor too decided to he disregard- ed by their representatives. There are few members in either branch of the legislature, who have expressed sentiments opposed to t he road, while before the people. That it has opponents in both branches cannot be doubted.
