But this is 1191 what we started to say.. We simpjj intended to anuoQnoe that our regular Austin comeapoudeirt is engaged in preparing a brief Mog rapby of the leading members for the Civilian. Many of them are men Who have served the state in past years, attd whose names and deeds deserve to beplnced on record. We publish the first of the series to-day-a brief notice of Hon. D. K. M. Taylor, the veteran Speaker of the House of llep-resentutives, and'a short account of Hon. John Henry Brown, a gentleman well remembered by many oldGalvestoniuus. Wees* poet in a few days to have a similar notice of the distinguished Speaker of the House, to be followed by others, until we have given all at least a paaeing word. The ftles of tbe newspapers of the country afford the best material for the coming historian, and it is the duty of the press to place on record such facts, regarding men and events, as may enable the coming generations to read aright the history of Texas. Tli o Tensas (La.) J 0 u rual i a forms ns 1 list a rare sight for this latitude was observed on the Mississippi river, from Thursday morning till Friday at ten o'clock. Almost the entire surface of the river was covered with cakes of floating ice, some of them pretty large. Vessels arriving at'Galveston report noatiug ice in the Gulf thirty or forty miles from the mouths of the Mississippi. At Philadelphia the city council has appropriated half a million in aid of the centennial celebration. A bill for u million more is pending iu the Pennsylvania Le-' gislaturc.  -- � - .. The old war correspondent of the press, "Sioux," now one of the editors of the Breiihum Banner, is now on a visit to Galveston in the interest of that lively journal. Eli T- Juunings, of Alabama, and Albert M. Harry, recently Collector of Customs at Browus-ville, Texas, have been appointed special Treasury agents. Judge Sabin and Mr. Isaac (>. Williams, who have been sick for some time, are improving. Bishop Wiley has selected a location at Austin for tbe erection of a college for the benefit of the colored people. in Iowa has Fly with a < a lowu named rold mine in it. Shoo Thomas F. McKjnney. -We had the pleasure of meeting the veteran Texan who bears this well known name, during a flying trif greatly saddened b(y tbe'Tuot~that~ disease and time hare left their marks on his ouce robust frame Mr. McKinney was one of the founders of Galveston, and the enterprise and perseverance of the firm of which he was a leading member, did more tbau that any other business establishment in building up and sustaining the infant city.  Many men still liv who ow< d their early success business to his generous aid,while many have passed away, upon whose wants and sufferings bis charity fell like balm. But it was not Galveston slone which first felt tbe influence of his energy and boldness as a public-spirited and influential citizen. To the Arm of McKiuuey & Williams, more than to any other establish ment, the  infant Republic of Texas was indebted for vessels, arms, ammunition, and provisions, in carryiugon the desperate etrug gle with Mexico, which terminated in the iudepeudeuce of Texas That firm crippled and well nigl bankrupted itself by turning over to the young government all its menus and credit.  Many years afterward some acttlemcut of their claims was made by the Govern ment, and the actual amount of their claims was made by the gov crniueut, and the actual amount oi their advances liquidated in lands, which were of but little value because they were forced to part with them at nominal prices. Mr. McKiuuey is now old, infirm and in straitened circumstances. The interest of the advances to the govorniuen between the time they were made and the settlement by the government would have amounted to some sixteen thousaud dollars, but was never allowed.  The last legislature attempted to paBs an act allowiug him the interest on this amount- say six huudred dollars a year during the continuance of his life, but the bill finally failed to become a law.   Without regard to the business and equitable character of his claim, he deserves the fostering care of the State in his old age for the valuable service he rendered to the government in its early straggle for existence. Many still live who remember both the benefits he  conferred  and tbe losses and disasters be sustained in consequence.   He is now in town, in need of succor, and a grateful people should see that his last days are not embittered by both want and ingratitude.   lie I cannot Biirvive long iu any event, 1 in etery direction tmd coaitoiitly annoy the Spanish troops. ,.

This krett'-uteanfe etort to reform the islanders does riot appear likely to be so well received.' The Tribune has private advices from the West Indies of a new movement of the insurgents in San Domingo, which it thinks, may prove serious, not only to President Baez but to the infant colony of Samana. The two revolutionary chieftains, Cabral'and Lupe-rou, have hitherto been hostile toward each otheri but have now arranged, a conference at Port-au-Prihofe, and it is their intention, probably, with the assistance of the Haythm government, to begin a vigorous and united campaign against Baez. The Samana Bay Company is warned that jf it soon hears bullets whistling along its boundary there 'must be no liberties* taken with the United States flag. Prisoners iu Northern Texas are rather fastidious iii regard to accommodations. The Cleburne Chronicle says that a man named Sanders, who had been tried and convicted of murder in Collin county, and whose case had been taken to the Supreme Court, on the 3rd of January broke jail at McKinney. went to Cleburne, gave *~-------'       .....����---<�"�� A^aM. r--- has been in jail since that time at Cleburne. He did not like the fare at the McKinney jail, and concluded to try some Other. Jail bir,ds are getting to be rather particular as to where they should roost. The Danbury ^News says 'Owen Burgess, of Danbury, is in the Bridgeport jail. A nice man, he is. Here Danbury has gone to work at great expense to build a handsome brick jail, with hot and cold water, and gas, and put a pinnacle and French roof on it, and done everything possible to furnish it with tbe comforts of a borne, and this Burgess, this man who pretends to be a Dan. brtrian, and liave the interest of bis town at heart, goes off to pa-trouize a rival Institution.
