It Is asOerletf tied, from early pe-corded obserrations 'that lhe nlar uovauMUik � of, the needle iu 1749 was tsytbs east, and it is equal' ry certain, that its' motion is now tossterly.

The Statesmau saysonr senior did Bometbing to defeat the Medical Mil now before a House committee. We hope he did. If we are rightly informed that bill proposes to divert to private advantage the anticipated appropriation by the State to relieve Galveston from the charge of, the many sick poopoi* which the' railroads now bring to as from the couutry, crowding our city hospital. Let �s have the text of this Medical bill before the House acts upon it It is not a little curious there should be, so many private attempts to mead our city charter. T.

Mr. Brown, of Dallas, sttg|gest ed that the amount should be raited, to oue thousand dollars, This motion was not sustained, and the bill went to engrossment. Mr. Smith, of Colorado, reported the bill to punish parties for bribery, and in favor of repealing1 the law allowing parties to testify in their own cases, and, made a strong speech in its favor. A bill allowing landlords protection by pryor lien upon crops of tenants for rents, animals, toolB, etc., advanced for ranking crops, was reported buck favorably. During the reading Mr. Brown moved that the reading bo dispensed with, and the bill was adopted. The bill was then passed under suspension of the rules by an almost uuaniiuous vote. A bill to amend chapter 6 title 10 of the penal code, requiring officers to pay over iu a certain time moiieyscollected, was reported and passed under a suspension of the rules. Judiciary Committee No. 1 reported back the substitute for House bill No. 53, iu regard to appeals Jroiu interlocutory judg ments, and recommend the passage of the original bill.

A bill was reported iu favor of amending the law in regard to the assessment of taxes, requiring returns to be made where the property is situuted. � Taa whole namberef tfeatHWln ]*bw Orleirns last week "wWWO, against' 131 the we^,p^rionet welveiled of coustjmptipn,i of ^rtiandyKTi beasts, and clandestine gauie ojt eeyen-ap the oi pr^l - mm. congestive (over, 4 of typhus Cbtst, | 10 of pneumonia, and 16 Of sntnll I   � "    - only meaus of wagerina a few do* "      '    aifDantsut |ho luood." pox. �'.....------t���.ft1-r-......

What our Customers Say:

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
