DULY IEECUBY TUESDAY, JAN. 37. 1874 THE SrNlTUR-SHIP. To-day the Legislature will elect a U. S. Senator. There are five gentlemen named for the impor- tant trust, any one of whom would add lustre to the State. Hie'name which we bring for- ward is one that is identified with the history and progress of Texas. In announcing George W. Flouruoy as onr choice for the position of United States Senator, we name a man who has always been recognized as one of the most brilliant men in the State. He took a conspicu- ous part in the memorable con- tests for the supremacy of the Democracy, prior to the inaugu- ration of the civil war. In 1860, after General Honston had de- feated Governor Kunnels by a majority elose on ten thousand, and it became neeessary to re- cuperate the failing fortunes of the Democratic party, Colonel Flonrnoy was put forward as its nominee for the Attorney Gen- eralship. By his eloquence and vigor in the canvass, he succeed- ed in defeating Colonel McAdoo (our late Judg...

JimilMllJET T XAS Ai-FMKS. The Galveston Civilian of the 23d, takes the Xeirs earnestly to task for its advocacy ot Throck- morton for the U. S. Sen31or - ship. Its principal objections to the course of the Xeic* are of a local nature. The Civilian attempts a denial of the statement of Old John Robinson, respecting the treat- ment of his circus people by some rowdies at Jacksonville, in this State. From all accounts, the occurrence allnded to was au unmitigated outrage, and reflect- ed no credit upon the authorities and citizens of Jacksonville, but that is no good reason why the good name of our whole State should be impugned. Any apol- ogy for the rowdyism complained of by Mr. Robinson, however, simply encourages the vicious to persist in evil doing. Now, that the Radical party in this State is utterly annihilated, what will become of some of the interim Democratic papers? They will be hard pressed for ed- itorial ideas, and their papers will be as devoid of editorials as they fre...

The ladies and gentlemen of the Magnolia His- trionic Club, we are satisfied after looking at the cast, will give one night's enjoyment to onr citizens, and we expect to see a crowded house to welcome our young Club and confer a benefit on suffering humanity. THE SEW SENATOR* The election of - Judge Sam Bell Maxey to succeed J. W. Flanagan in the United States Senate# will strike people not posted in the internal machinery of political affairs with surprise. It is true Judge Maxey is not without ability of a high order, but when compared with either of the three distinguished gentle- men who ran for the office, Reagan, Throckmorton or Flonrnoy, he is but second rate. Judge Maxey has never figured extensively in politics, otherwise than as a stump orator in which line he achieved considerable reputation...

DAILY MMUUHY TEXAS ArFA IRS. The Dallas Herald of the 25th says: "Quinn, the Corsicana res- taurateur, who melted away with about thirty-five hundred dollars of the 'time' of the Texas Central railroad boys, as well as with a large amount of goods which he had bought on long time—he ex- tended the time himself—was caught near Piano on Thursday evening, by one of the lianahau brothers of this city, aud made to 'squeeze' out that money. He was then allowed to depart, and being something on size, Quinn looked not unlike a barn walking on two poles." Quinn is the same who Capt. Faulkner broke a chair over at the Hutchins House, iu this city, some time in December. "Keno" seems to be a favorite game in Sherman. The Courier says: "We heard a gentleman say,* who was before the Grand Jury iu gaming matters, that had they asked him a single question in regard to Keuo, he could have indicted over half the jury." That Grand Jury needs an en- abling act. The Courier wants the two cannon, which ...
