Special Correspondence mebcurt : Eor several days piist the war over the Funding Bill has pro- gressed in the House with unre- mitting vigor, and has at length culminated in the introduction of a substitute, embodying many of the provisions of the original bill, which bids fair to pass. Kellogg, with his usual astute- ness, in an attempt to lobby the first act through, consulted only those whom he deemed the lead- ers of the House, and this creat- ing a jealousy in the breasts of less influential members, they strenuously opposed him, taking the ground that the act was to create a revenue and that the Constitution of the State directs that all such bills mnsfc originate in the House. The funding bill, it will be remembered, originated in the Senate, and the argument proved u answerable. Kellogg, in revenge, refuses to approve the appropriation bill...

JAN. 84. 1874 OUR New Ma yob.—Some men are born great and some have greatness thrust upon them. This truism was illustrated in the person of James T. D. Wil- son, Esq., who has been created Mayor of Houston by the ukase of the Fourteenth Legislature, uttered through Governor Coke. Mr. Wilson came to this State in 1835. He had an arm broken in the Mexican war. During the Confederacy Governor Lubbock employed Mr. Wilson to briug ammunition from Monterey into the Confederacy. This is his last and most prominent public act. His reputation is that of a straightforward, honest man; He is rich, and will probably not be a candidate for election. Three new cases of small pox are reported near the Churchf of the Annunciation.—Houston Age.

On gen- eral principles, we want nothing that savors of usurpation; too much of that was practiced during the past regime.—Runts- rille Item. Our present Constitution is the most bungling job of the sort that any Legislative workman ever turned out. It was botched in the beginning and abandoned at the end. When Davis and his party left the Convention, GenerarCanby and his Adjutant General gathered up their papers, sent them to a printer, and he really made the Constitu- tion, arranging and collating pretty much as seemed to him wise. And the result was a document that ought to be sup- planted by a well considered, harmonious and statesman-like Constitution.—Galveston Civilian.
