The upper deck is so low that the boat will not be im- peded in its progress by overhanging trees. Capt. Ilarrel informs us th..t he has made three trips up the Trinity, and has been am- ply remunerated for his labor. The river is now unusually high, and he expects to "be able to ascend six or seven hundred miles without difficulty.

. There was much sickness at the goldmines at the last accounts. The sickly season em- braces the months of July. August and Sep- tember. Thedisease prevailing at the mines, says the Alta Californian, is a virulent form of diarrhoea and is considered bjr many persons as a precursor of the Cholera, if not this dis- - ease in a mild form. We are happy to learn that Mr. Martin and his sons who left the company of Col. Mays in the mountains east of El Paso last spring, and were supposed to have perished in the desert, have arrived in safety in the "gold dig- "ins." They reached the Rio Grande far above E!

fce a people conld be free! Or if we reverse the picture, and present to our minds a nation enjoyiug the ad- vantages of wide-spread intelligence. Could we im- agine that they conld be enslaved? The conculsion thatthoy could be is altogether preposterous. Ignor- ance is the very material from which the fetters of the ssnl are forged; knowledge and intelligence, the golden bands that unite together free and civilized communi- ties in an indissoluble union. So well known and so nr&etie&llv acted upon is thii principli in despotic coun- tries, that the door of knowledge is kept closed, and ignorance is cultivated with & full knowledge of the power it has in destroying individual independence, and making its victims the dlind and degraded instrument of the will -of others. This principle should bo well studied by Republicans; and the practice of despots referred to above, be exactly reversed.

THE TELEGRAPH. EDITED BY FRANCIS MOORE, Jr. Houston, Thursday, Oct. 25, 1849. j) The steamship Palmetto arrived at Gal- veston on the 23d inst., and brought dates from New Orleans to the 2lat inst. The price of cotton has declined about one cent per pound within the last three weeks. The-maiket in New Yoik however, is firm. Prices had been raised in New Orleans loo fur above those at the North and in Europe to be sustained, and the advices by the last European steamer being still more unfavora- ble than the advices by the previous mail, the mai ket closed heavily, and at the last ac- counts were very limited. The quotations for Middling in the New Orleans market on the 20:h were 9 to 9$, and 9 to 10 for Good Middling. Gen. Houston delivered an address to a large assembly of the citizens of Houston on Tuesday evening. His remarks related mere- ly to the political topics of the day. He de clared his determination io maintain our boundaries of Texas as defined in the statute of limits....

We shrewdly sus- pect they contain as much truth as poetry. Exchange. The parson satin his house one day, While wintry storms did rage Sigh rapt .he drank in lofty thought From Hooker s classic page But as he sat, and holy breath Into his heart did steal, His dear wife open'd the door and said, "My dear, we have no meal."' With a deep groan and saddened brow He laid aside his book : And in despair upon the hearth With troubled air did look '"My people think that I must break To them the bread of heaven, But they'll not give me bread enough One week day out of seven."' But hunger is a serious thing, And it is sad to hear Sweet children's mournful cry for bread Come ringing in your ear; So straight he mounted his old horse, With meek and humble will, And with his bag, well patched aud coarse. He journeyed to the mill. The miller...
