Like the historian Bancroft be bBlieves that he Is destined to be a centenarian. Ik an Interview a faw days since Jay Ganld said "the growth of some eities in Texas is simply amazing. Take, for instance. Ban Antonio and Fort Worth. The former in 1880 had a population not exceeding 6,000; to-day there are fully 60,000 people in that vicinity. Another striking proof of the permanent prosperity of Texas is the public school funds of �100,000,000. Fiue school buildings are to be seen all over Uw State." Philadelphia. Inquirer: While we do not believe tbat tbis is going to be moob of a year for Democrats in Pennsylvania, it must be confessed tbat with Pattiaon the nominee the Republicans will bave to work harder than with Wallace. The latter would be beaten by his own party right hem in Philadelphia, for tbe old Cleveland leaders care more for the control of the machine and the national delegates in 1803 than for the Governorship. They will work for sucoess in tbe State if tbe nomination somes tbeir way, but they will never consent to tbe elevation of Wallace. What Cleveland Hade Oat af Bed Tap. Mnrat Halatead'i New York Letter. A wild young man who writes fot a Republican newspaper in this city, goes wrong in saying Graver Cleveland did not pay Tor Red Top. Tbat subject has received a good deal of attention in tbe columns of the Commercial Gazette, and it is fkir to say tbat Cleveland bought and paid for Red Top, and that it cost him, with the Improvements, abont 130,000. He sold for 1140,000, making all things taken into account, (100,000. Tbe property was surrounded by tbe holdings of leal estate syndicates, and tbe speculation was promoted by the lavish use of public ruonsy in improvements in the direction of Red Top, that were made nnder tbe direction of commissioners appointed by Cleveland by syndicates. That ia tbe whole story, and it should not be perverted, but stand as it Is. The Wallace FroETaratne. Flttaburf Tims*. William A. Wallace lor Governor and J. V. GoBy, the Pittsburg Gas King, for Lieutenant Governor, is thB slate now arranged by tbe Wallace people for the Democratic Slate Convention. Thla combination is thought to have all tbe dash, courage and money to rally to its support a united and harmonious party. Burnt, of Erie, ia slated for Secretary of Internal Affairs by tbe Wallace combination just to pacify and secure the support oi W. L. Soott. The Old Guard for Hastings. Col. B. Frank Eshlcman, of Lancaster, in an interview, asys: "I believe that ail the delegates elected are for Martin for Lieutenant Governor, at least I hope so, and I feel confident that all of them will be for General Hastings for Qovernor. Ton can pat this down for s fact (and I don't care who knows it), tbat no delegate from tbis county who bas any respect for tbe wishes of tbe people be represents or for himself, or any hope for a political future, will dara vote against Hastings."
