Communicated. Editor Watchman: Please call attention of the public offi- cers, and especially the Sheriffs of all Texas, to the wide spread complaints of drovers here and there, gathering into their droves and driving away in their herds, cattle of the risidents along the route of their travel. Complaints reach us from various parts of William- son county, including the neighborhood of Georgetown. If report speaks truly, some of these drovers have welcomed with a loving embrace, to their herds, the very milk-cows of some of our citizens, while their young calves were bleating in the pen. The evil is largely on the increase, and it devolves upon every owner of cattle to be on the alert. It especially devolves upon the proper officers of the counties through which these herds pass, to invoke the law of 1866. Scrutinize the herds, and see that every drover has the proper bills of sale, for all the stock he is driv- ing duly recorded and certified to by the Clerk of the proper county—ot...

Hamilton was born in son county, Ala., (before it was a county,) on the 25tli February, 1809, came to Texas in 1837, settled in Aus- tin in 1839, and was clerk in the War Department six years, then a merchant and operator in real estate.

He was elected to the Constitutional Convention 1868 from Bastrop county, although he was a citizen of Travis, and was sent by the Convention as one of the Commissioners to Congress. On the 22d February, 1870, he was «/ ' 1 elected United States Senator. He is a man of retiring habits, studious and thoughtful, and free from the small vices and disipated ways of many pol- iticians. \ J. W.

Sad Death.—The relatives of the deceased have requested us to publish the following from a Waco paper— the Register, we believe, unless we mistake the face of the type: "On the 1st of Aprtl, at Tuscaloosa, Ala- bama, in a difficultv between a son of Federal General Smith and Ran- dolph, editor the of the Tuscaloo- sa Monitor, in which pistol shots were exchanged, Mr. W. H. Byrd, father of Maj. A. J. Byrd and George Byrd, was shot and killed. Mr. Byrd happen- ed to be passing near the scene of the difficulty, but was in no way partici- pating, when he was struck down by a stray shot from the pistol of Smith.

Occupational! Ailments. Fresh pure air is a vitalizing elixir. Whoever is debarred by circustanees from unrestricted ac- cess to this invisible, but powerful stimulant, needs a midicinal invigorant of some kind. The great object should be to cl.oose the best. Popu- larity is a pretty good guarantee of merit in this scrutinizing and intelligent age, and tried by this criterion Ilostetter's Stomach Bitters stands first among the invigorating and regulating medicines of the present day. To the wants of persons en- gaged in indoor employments, especially in crowd- ed factories where even with the best possible ven- tilation the atmosphere is always in some degree polluted, this salubrious vegetable tonic is pecu- liarly adapted. The nature of the ingredients is no mystery. It consists of an absolutely pure diffusivestimulant,tinctured—or rather surcharged —with the fl uid extracts of sanatous roots and barks and herbs. The pharmacopoeia has its tinc- tures, but what are they? The juice ...

From the Sjitthern Cultivator. How to Make Cheap Pork. Messrs Editors : The remark is often made by farmers that it would be cheaper to buy their pork than to raise it. • This is too often true in the cotton region, where they depend on fattening their hogs with corn. I have long since learned that in the South, where we do not grow clover and the grasses to much extent, that it will not do to depend 011 the corn crib to raise hogs. I will give you the outlines of a plan I have adopted, which I have tested three years in succession, and feel confident that my pork does not cost me more than one-half as much as raised in the usual way. Instead of relying on corn, I feed on cotton seed, and fatten on sugar cane (sor- ghum) and peas. Boil the cotton seed until well cooked, then to each peck add one quart of corn meal and a little salt, mix well. Feed 011 this twice a day, as much as they will eat up clean in trough—be careful not to surfeit them with it. An idea pre- vails that cotton ...

I ^ The Governor's Message. Executive Office, ) Austin, April 29th, 1870.} Gentlemen of the Senate and House op Representatives of Texas : So long timft has elapsed since the session, with- in this State,%f a body competent to legislate, that your duties must be many, and their performance i tedious and laborious. In addition to ordinary I matters of legislation, you will find it incumbentI sufficient numbers or force to be able to resist the local civil authorities, but as long as such a con- dition is possible, due caution advises me to be prepared lor it. It may also happen that the lo- cal authorities would be bound in svmpathy with the disturbers of the peace. The question of ma- king some provision for the temporary establish- ment of martial law under certain contingencies, and within limited districts, is therefore submit- ted to vour judgment. The mere knowledge of the fact that such power is given the Executive, and that he will not hesitate to exercise it when the case wa...

Your earnest attention to this subject is asl>ecl. ' lathis connection, and as necessary to a lull understanding of the capacity of the State, a complete geological survey is advisable. There has already been some work done in this way, with a very favor- able result. Enough was ascertained to make clear that the mineral wealth of Texas is not far behind the agricultural. But the practical benefit of what was done has been mostly lost by the confused state of the specimens in the geological cabinet of the State, and it is difficult now to ascertain where most of these came from. Provision should be made for a large collection of minerals to be found by this survey, so as to enable the proper department to distribute to the na- tional and other geological cabinets du- plicates of them, which are frequently called for. I suggest that this survey and the State collection of specimens be made under the control and direction of the Commissioner of the General Land Office, where it can...

The iebt of the State is small.— Under the act of November 12, 1866 above alluded to 5 per cent. State bonds, to amount of $82,168 82 were issued to the School Fund. If this act is to be respected the State is so much indebted to the School Fund.— The only other indebtedness is that of ten per cent, warrants issued be- fore the war, and not excluded under the 34th Sec., Act XII, General Provi- sions. It will require some investi- gation to ascertain what amount of these warrants are valid claims against the State, but this cannot be considerable. Texas may therefore, substantially, be said to be out of debt. It will be noticed that in the C...
