The Jefferson Detnocratays no unemployed money should be kept in the treasury. That surplus million is likely to make" trouble yet. The San Antonio Express wants the ward politicians sat down upon.

The various committees of the house of representatives are hard at work paying no attention to thcpolitical debates that arc going on.

M' JLCKI V DIHiTL IULHUI UHiinUlI. 1 BV RASKIN & X.EVIK. s CKUKS0AY JtKllBV 6 1850. Just before Christiias the newspapers of St Louis were crowded with advertising. The object of advertising is to attract attention and sell goods. If it pays the merchant to advertise in the holiday season it ought to pay him all the year round. This is a specimen of what we can do in theway of logic A-- Richmond Va. is quite an important manufacturing city. During the past year 17000 persons have found constant employment in the factories of that city being an increase of 3000 over the number employed 'the previous year. It will be y seen that the 17000 persons employed in the factories is a sufficient to make a city larger than any now in Texas. The Fort Worth Democrat says the following is a pretty fair sample of the objections made to senator Maxey by those who believe the sun rises and sets in Throckmorton's cor- pus. The Seguin Times says he is "lean yellowhaired and ungainly in his persona...

9kl3r -Banner Tko Farm KtII. The Dixie Farmer calls at- tention to a most fruitful source of failure in the cultivation cf Southern plantations and farms. Uver-cropmg or planting more acres than" can be properly pre- pared and cultivated is a great evil in the South and evidences. of it are to be met with in every I community in lexas. llictrue cause of all thisuntidincss about farms is that farmers lay out more work than they can per- form in the field and hence in an effort to catch up their fen- ces and -houses and stock arc neglected and superficial culti- vation results in poor crops and less money and less content- racntand enjoyment ofthc home than where work is measured out exactly by the ability of the farmer to perform it Says the Farmer: ."The great fundamen- tal maxim of all true agriculture that production must be in pro- portion to tillage is cither not known or forgotten upon such farms and in its stead is adopted the maxim that production is in proportion to the quan...
