If Governor Coke will make the Mercury State Geologist, at $3000'a year, wd 'Wffl furnish more jaw-breaking technical terms from our geological dic- tionary than the editor of the Bulletin can cipher out during his natural life time. A correspondent of the San Antonio Herald, writing from Austin, observes: ; 4'The city has been: remarka- bly quiet for the past few days, when we consider that Frank Fabj has been in town, all the tune." . ' As Fabj has been announced as a possible Superintendent of the.Deaf and Dumb Asylum, it may be he has been practicing silence in order to fit himself for the position.

I did not drop a "strong insinuation that the candidates just nominated for Aldermen would be beaten," bat said I had voted for them then, and would support them for thecposition for which we nomi- nated them, and I do not "think the ticket will be badly whipped," bat, on the contrary, am confi- dent of its success.

The Ennis Argus says: "Let the Legislature remember that fifty-one thousand majority of Democrats are demanding the privilege of making a State Con- stitution for themselves and their posterity." The Panola Watchman has this to say of one of the Senators op- posed to a Constitutional Con- vention : "Senator Bradley, of the Four- teenth Legislature of Texas, among many reasons, objects to a Convention, and favors a commission, because he says the masses of the people, though sound in sentiment, are tired of elections. This expres- sion, to our mind, smacks strong- ly of centralization, and we re- gret exceedingly to hear such la...
