Who Is Safe! : HV The editor of the Mebcubt has been taken to task by certain members of the Texas Central Railroad for connecting the com- pany with the late election frauds. They disclaim all cognizance thereof and responsibility there- for. , From one end of the State to the other the Mebcubt has been charged with being the organ of railroads; while some have charged as with being controlled and owned by the Texas Central Railroad Company. Those per- sonally acquainted with as know how little troth there is in these statements. We are and have ever been the firm, faithful and ardent ad- vocate of every legitimate rail- road enterprise of the State; and, situated as we are, in the great railroad-center of the State, be- ing a witness to what the roads have -done and are doing for Texas, yre have never h*led «t...

TTotpia InlnKBe HNMk The following important bills are now before the Forty-third Congress. We will, under the above heading, give fro*i day a synopsis of all important measures: ME. DAWKS' REDEMPTION BILL. Mr. Dawes introduced a bill to previfle for the fredlAfctMi*** the United States loan ot 1858., The phraseology of the law under which this loan was authorized- is such that the holder, at their option, can demand payment Grand Democratic Jubilee! An A Immense Torchlight Pro- /f c^kon l>1 f W '"J alter Janaary 1,1874. As there has been no appropriation in^de. either in the act authorizing the loan or subsequently, for 'the payment of principal, and as there is no law fordeterming the pleasure of the United States as to the payment of these bonds, it is deemed desirable that some provision be made for thfeit n/ demption. It isMiiderstood that many of the holders of these bonds are willing to exchange them for bonds of the new issue. the kasson bill. The Kasson bill, which it is...

mm daily mercuey SUNDAY, - DEC. 14, 1813. SAUL'S COHTESSION. The editor of the Age quotes our action regarding the election frauds, and says: And yet the Mkkctjkt supported "Win. B. Baker up to and into the'election, nor did it denounce him or the Central, nor did it do anything else to discover, or detect or publish these frauds so thoroughly known for twenty days prior to the election. Saul's conversion was tcraduel.and deliber- ate compared to this hue and'cry. This is ft grave mistake. If the editor of the ije'will refer to our issue of Sunday preceding the election he will there find over a column of editorial an- nouncing fraudulent registrati and calling upon the leaders of the Democracy to use their in- fluence to prevent those fraudu- lently registered from voting. The following are a few ex- tracts from our Snnday editorial: , Shortly after the campaign opened our candidate for the State Senate—-W. R. Baker—commenced to register his rail- road employes, bringing them from ...
