DAILY EVENING STAR. ! A Negro Veteran. Few persons, we think, have traveled in fgTjis who have not heard of Thorns,* Savoy, alias Black Tom, alms the Special Citizen of Bexar county. He was by trade a barber, but by inclination a sol dier, and his history is intimately con nected with the warlike spirit of that part of Texas. He was much fonder, too, of the company of white men than of that of persons of his own color. Tom wa> a n?.tive of Maryland, then a citizen of Washington, D. C., then a res ident of Mississippi, whence he emigrated to Texas, at the b"ginning of the Revolu tion there, with a company of Mississippi volunteers, his razor in his pocket and a gun on his shoulder. They joined Gen. Houston a short time after the battle of San Jacinto, but Black Tom's subsequent conduct as a soldier elicited the praise of his hard-fighting comrades and superior officers. The year 1839 was distinguished in Texas annals by the expedition under Jordan to Saltillo. to assist the the tr...

DAILY EVENING STAR. Preachers should never be seen at gro cery stores, conversing about money, horses, and the rise and fall of prices, for all these things will recur to many of the pulpit. Young men should always take advice from the old, but they must learn experi ence of themselves, and think freely and independently, to become men. Children will grow up fools if they are taught foolishness. The man who lal>ors to suppress one evil aud secretly practices another, his sincerity in the first makes him inconsis tent and ridiculous. If you wish to be called small and in significant by your enemies, overthrow them and trample them under your feet ?they can see no merit then. If a man is of no consequence, the world will neither praise or condemn him, but if he is powerful, his name will be mentioned by all, and the most sense less gossips will l>e his bitterest foes. 1 he young should lx- educated nation ally.
