It reveals the germs and buddings of a magnificent growth, but also attests the absence of a settled and comprehensive plan, as-Tvell as of ftdministrativc genius to arrange prac- tical details and produce that co-ordi- nation of the various pares which is necessary to a symmetrical v.'hole. Un- less these deficiencies arc corrected, and unless measures of sanitary police are adoptod which will free us from the unsightly and pestileace-iuTiting attendants above referred to, Galves- ton -wiH strike the curious observer as a splendid dream which has been sud- deoly interrupted in its course by tho horrors of nightmare. It is madness to imagine that this, or any other city, can be at- once in a state of chronic foulness perma- nent salubrity. The laws of health are the laws of nature. They caa not be disregarded with immunity by any individual or by any city full of indi- viduals. A city DO move than an indi- vidual can be healthy when immersed m vitiated air and rife with squalor. Savage mer. are usually nomads, be- cause they know not any other way to avoid being stilled by their owe filthi- nesa than a frequent cbfinge of habita- tion. But the avocanions aud wants of civilized men constrain them to fixed abodes. Hence a necessity of self-preservation enjoins upon them constant cs.ro for local cleanli ness. Other things equal, the dcgrco of this cleanliness in an urban population is the measure of its civ i 1 ixation. If, from any cause, London or Paris could not throw oil or neutralize its impurities, it would be doomed to swift destruction. On the other hand, here is no necessary limit to tho rowth of any cify os long tts it can >rovide against being poisoned by wn refuse. Louden, with more than bree millions of inhabitants, is cleaner nd healthier now than it was Tvith a opulation of five hundred thousand, 'he local, hygiene bas been stimulated o improved efficiency by the growth vhich it mide possible. Doubtless Salvc-ston, when it shall have a bun- red thousand inhabitants, will, for a imilar reason, be cleaner and healthier ban it is now. But let us not be diverted by specu- atioits as to the future frori the sani- ary problem which now confronts us n a most practical and momentous tape. Por a series of years this city IRS been exempt from epidemics, j While this fact is one of the secrets of ts rapid growth, its rapid growth is he chief reason of its present cnsatis- actory situation. But there are no nsuperable difficulties. We have a competent and faithful health officer, and an able medical faculty. Timely measures adopted at their suggestion could hardly fail to put the city m good preparation far the coming ;easoa. But to make them eflicacioxis 'or all emergencies, the health officer should have the largest discretion and tbe amplest power, head of- our sanitary police. This grnmetl, TTC can confidently count upon another healthy summer, the mere commercial value oi which would bo worth many million dollars. To sum up, a successful iinil stable sanitary police would mean the estab- lished healthfulness of tho and its established fame as a ci'y safe, at all seasons, to visit, to live in and do business in. All these conditions would mean accelerated growth, diver- sified improvements, and every mauner of prosperity. And they arc entirely attainable by prudent forethought and energetic action. Tlie IMlfillc The want of funds to pay the cur- rent expenses, has compelled the Board of School Trustees to close the public schools. This action, though neces- sary is sincerely to bo deplored. The law oC the State now in force requires the public schools to be kept open four months in the year. They 5iavc been open one month over this time, and arc only closed because the Trustees can not see their way to defray ex- penses for a day longer, and will be for- tunate if tie accounts of the present month arc settled without troublesome delay. It will be observed from a notice in our local columns that the pupils in periy aa is essential to our ani she.uH therefore be eoctrolled i tbdsutercEt o! our city and the Stats, instead of subjecting th e whole State as at aiensat, to -niiresxrictecl charges. view to private dividends, Tf would be thought of a raiiroac io shocH ask for a charter and giving thi privilege of charging TvIUiout testric tion?

This is done for the purpose of keeping up the existing organization, if possible, by making the terms of tuition almost nominal. At this meeting all choose to con- tinue will have an opportunity of registering their namos, and we really trust that a sufficient number of pupils will be four.d to maintain in existence the present aid well- disciplined system.

Upon bis recovery he becamo correspondent of dif- ferent journals, and failing again in health made a trip to Denver, where he remained during the summer of 1ST-4. After his return to Galveston, at the eo- lichation of his friends, and feeling con- fident of his own strength in the Demo- cratic parly, he became a candidate for Mayor a second lime, and the recent re- sult of tho fair and squaro fight" be- tween Gov. Lubbcck and himae'.f has been almost universally recognized and ratified "by the of Galvcston as that by which they arc bound to abide. He now stands be- fore tho citizens of Galveston as the regular nominee of the Demo- cratic party for Mayor. Capt. Fulton has always been acknowledged by the Democracy as a valuable adherent, acd no belter evidence of this is wanted tban the fact tbat he was appointed upon, the State Democratic Executive Committee as a member from this tho Twelfth Sen- atorial District, aud has been a- delegate to every Slate convention sinco the war, serving on the Committee on PlaUorm and Resolutions at tho one held at Aus- tin in 1871.

In personal appearance- Captain Fulton is rather prepossessing. Six feet high, with regular features, black hair, eyes and mustache, he moves about cau- tiously, seldom in a hurry, and yet al- ways on tituo when necessary. Late years have told upon him in several wnys, end a fair BUowing of baldness only gives additional gravity to his gener- al demeanor. Such is, in brief, the man whom the Democratic part have indorsed as their Candida to for Mayor of Galveston.

Before doing so let me teach you a few fiimple truths which aud ex- perience have taught me. It IH qulttioa important, in every nsp-jct, to cultivate your body as to cultivate your mind. JS'o amount of mental acqui- sitions will componpate for tbe lack of a strong-, elastic, healthful physical I shall have accomplished, tuy if you will take my word for it, that you ve H in your power in a great to make and keep your body and healthy. To thin end, plenty of sleep, open air and txercifcO, are tbi; only phjraicians you need to consult.' Moathu- naa flow directly frciu the atomuch., It must have rest like any organ. Make it a purt of your religion never to food more than three timea u day, and never to tftste auy article of food which you have found to be indlgotnihly, You insist be your own-judgy oC Ui'ia. What you ought to eat requires aa much careful consideration as what you ought to read. You. must depend on habit, ac- quired little by little, to make any course- of life you raay clioose to adopt; agreea- AG to you, Should you over give way to despondency, aa to acquiring any de- sirable habit, remember that uum by dint of perseverance, loarn to uee tobacco and utrong drink, and to be unhappy without them. you are likely {o net for yourself can be equal tojthifl. How you lead ia quite aa important as what you read. Moat people wasto all the time they spend ia reading, Mental dyspepsia is almost as common a uiaeasu as physical dyspepsia, and ia brought; on ay the same means, viz; by devouring more food and more rapidly than it cau be digested. The re rapid re is r. .o greater error than to read many books, except it be to read hurriedly and without panne. Wliat la not retained ia the memory is lost, and memory depends on the amount of at- tention bestowed, and tho time a, thought ia kept before the mind. The power to Si tbe attention and to keep a thought oofore the mind grows imperceptibly, but surely, by UBB. Comilder, then, no book properly read, unless you. have made the tone, tbe spirit, tbe thought of the author your own. Read no longer at one time than you feel a vivid interest in your book. And let me insist that you keep Webster's or Worcester's una- bridged dictionary always at band, and Jet no strange word pass without, critical inspection. We think in words, and therefore to think clearly, and to speak accurately, you must know the exact meaning of words. They ara, in fact, key to all knowledge. By no means neglect.to read aloud a short time every day, with careful atten- tion to tho one golden rule of elocution, viz: Head in the tone and manner in wbicli you would utter tbo game senti- ments in conversation. This practice will educate your ear aa well aa your tongue. The cultivation of your voice in ordinary speech is altogether more im- portant to you than a'l the vocal gymnas- tics of the opera house. "Pan Cupid bath not in aU his quivers choice An arrow for the heart like a sweet roice.'1 Commit to memory some fine-passage in prose or verse almost daily, not by any means forquotation, bat to give you facility and power of expression. You will have reaped only a part the bene- fits of mental culture it" you fail to .ac- quire the power of expressing your thoughts in just and appropriate lan- guage, and with a distinct, dear, well modulated voieo. la the selection of words avoid the temptation to bb line, flowery and high-flown. Good taste re- jecta the star-spangled banner style in speech and writing, as it doe8 in dress and manners. I set out to you a mere Bong, and have written almost a sermon. conclude by giving you a few brief hints about books. You cau nob go amiss if you will read only tbe works of the best authors. Learn .to love Shakespeare, Addison, Swift, Goldsmith, Johnson, Sheridan, Burns, Wordsworth, Moore, Walter Scott, Bulwer, Dickens, Macaulay, Thackeray, Tennyson, Washington Irv- ing, and you may then well lay claim to haying a finished education. I have mentioned only a few of the great nutaes of literature, ani have purposely omitted one of the greatest of them all, Byron? "because Lis "Don the highest effort of his genius, should not be read by you. at all. I especially recommend "Byron's letters as the best model I know for your epistolary style. Study these letters until you have learned the secret of their indescribable charm, and strive to make it your own. to a grace- ful, fluent, simple conversations! diction, eapistolary excellence ia the useful and desirable acquisition for a lady. Never permit yourselE to read a novel, unless it is from the hand of-one of tbe great Masters, afld then read it as you weuld read atext-boak. Before entering upon a course- of history, it would be but proper for you to read the anes of the noted historical characters. I have barely touched the subject, but at some future time T will give you a liet of my favorite books and in the order in which they should 'bo taken up.
