It is rare that a sensible article is written -upon t'lis subject iii Texas.

ti that would have done credit to more practiced legisla- tors ; and one of the standing rules being that no mem- . ber should be required to speak with any relevancy to the subject under consideration 'there was a diffusion of humor and a latitude of figure and simile beyond any previous example. Bills were introduced and passed corrective of the general ills of society and the troubles difficulties and inconveniences of Austin and the pecu- niary embarrassment of the members in particular. Valuable reports on Finance and other important subjects were made and ingenious projects for gulling the world were adopted. The general tendency of leg- islation was to benefit the people a great deal and the Congress much more a course for which there is plenty of precedent. The Congress was liberally supplied with plenty of the source of hilarious vitality and never we venture to -say has a more intelligent witty or business-like body convened in the world.

It was not thns not thus we met of yore When my plumed soul went half way to the sky To greet her : and the joyous song she bore Was scarce more tuneful than the glad reply : The wings are fetter'd by the weight of years And grief has spoil'd the music with her tears.

A : THE PLAGUE . . FROM MISS PARDOES CITY OP THE SULTAN. It seems as though men apprehend contagion in the very name of plague for they have adopted terms that render its repetition needless. Should you enquire for a family which has become compromised you are told that "they are gone to the mountains" and you under- stand at once that they are infected ; and when num- bers are'daily dying about you in reply to your desire to learn the amount of the evil you are answered that there are so many or so many "accidents." Every respectable house and every public establish- ment has in its court or its outer hall a small wooden erection precisely like a sentry box raised on rollers into which you are obliged to enterduring a period of plague before you are admitted into the-interior of the building ; and where you stand upon a latticed floor- ing while aromatic herbs are burnt beneath whose dense and heavy vapor soon envelopes you in thick smoke which is said to prevent contagion. Every c...

In each day there will issue from his mouth half a pint of a fluid too nauseously disgusting to describe. In 25 years .this will amount to five huudred and fifty gallons or more than four hogsheads of this detestable mass. In the same time allowing him only-two ounces a day he will roll as a sweet morsel under his tongue half a ton -of the hateful weed which will sicken a dog or kill a horse forming a heap of the size of a haystack. Then his rejected quids would form a still larger pile. Now if such a young man could see ten half hogsheads "full of such abominable filth destined to pass through his mouth a waggon load of tobacco and ten -wheelbarrows heaped up with quids designed for an intimate association with his lips how would the prospect af- fect him? And if the delicate young lady who is to be the partner of his life could see the same how en- viable would be her emotions. Gen. J...

He said the law for their removal had not been promulgated they could not read and to take them up and sell them would be piracy in' its worst and ugliest share.

The members of this House well recollect the case brought forward some days since by the gentleman from Houston county a case calculated .to excite the sympathies and arouse the humanity of every member; but the House then declared by its vote that it would be impolitic to permit free negroes to remain in our country.
