The exit of Davis from the pnblic stage has blighted with frosty death the hopes the Mammoth cherished of patronage from, that quarter,* and its endeavors to conciliate the victors have prov- ed unavailing, so you are the on- ly friend left it. One of the part- ners returned last week from Austin in a very downcast mood, and malignant gossips will have it that the delay in Judge Balling- ers' confirmation was caused sole- ly by his supposed alliance with an obnoxious paper. While you are in a gracious mood I trust you will extend your magnanim- ity to poor Loke, who seems to me an unjustly abused man. He tries to tell the truth, but the fates are too strong for him. A few days ago he telegraphed from Houston that the newly ap- pointed Council is very unpopu- lar. When the telegram arriv- ed the partners were...
