The heat of summer is seldom oppressive, as a sea breeze springs up almost with the regu- larity of sunrise, increases in strength until about two or three o'clock in the afternoon, and then gradually declines towards sjnsel; thoughts are quite cool.

- tL r- . A beautiful sight interrupts us in our wearisome task of overlooking the exchange list, wherein we daily plunge, to seek, like the pearl divers of the Eastern seas, for soirfe rare gem with which to regale the eyes of our readers. The s'ight we allude to is, the procession of the scholais of the Sis- ters of charity, who are now bending their steps to the neighboring church, this being a day of great solemnity with the Catholic, (Thursday 55:) The rain is falling, but the orphans are enveloped in dark comfor- table looking cloaks, and the humble sisters are in advance, figuring to our mind the moral position which they hold over their young and hap- less charge, leading them to the shrine of virtue and of God. The Children appear to be about thirty or forty in number, and yet :all these are supported and tended by these charitable women. May ihoir reward be great in that hour when creeds shall bo blended in one universal prayer for mercy, and opinions find one centre and o...

1 'J I' I ? Mineral Waters. Near the Sibolo about thirty-three milea from Bexar, is a mineral spring, its waters have for ages been held in high estimation by the aborigines for their medicinal qualities. Minerals. Great quantities of limestone arc found in all parts of this section; flint and several varieties ol sandstone abound on the ban Antonio and Sibolo. Here are also numerous beds of a natural cement,, resembling slacked lime: which when formed into mortar, becomes hard as stone, and is much used as a building material. 9 Soil and Productions. The soil consists generally of a dark san dy loam, exceedingly rich and productive. Some of this has been culti- vated more than fifty successive years, and yet seems to have lost none of its original fertility. The facilities of irrigation are such in the val- ies of these streams that their waters may easily be directed over a sur- face of one million of square acres, capable of producing the most abun- dant crops of corn, cotton, to...
