   Tri-Weekly News (Newspaper) - April 12, 1862, Houston, Texas                                Vol. XX.] HOUSTON, SATURDAY BICHA&pSOjff ft CO, Proprietors. Houston, Saturday, April 12, 1S62. lite oau Antonio .S'ewd says Comai comity has more thun two-thirds of her voting population iu the field, armed and etpuppud. The population of that county is, wu believe, almost exclusively German, and this evidence of the patriotiani there., reflects much credit on that class of om citizens. _ ft3~ The ladies of Mission Valley, Victoria county, address tie ladies of Texas, calling on them to co-operate with them in uid of the sacred cause of our country's liberties at this time. They think the iadiea oi Texas have, at least, one million of dollars now locked up in their caskets, and which is doing no service to them or the country and they propose that it shall all be givei* to our patriotic Governor to aid in the pre sent struggle, it isjiroposed that the lauiee shall organize a society in each county, ana J proceed at once to collect the treasure. $& The Gazette �ays a lady of Austin proposes to give five hundred dollars towards building a vessel the same as the Virginia, to remove the blockade at Galveston. This is a liberal beginning, and if othei ladies will follow the example, the enterprise irill speedily succeed. ffcUiiKAL. iMm ot' Ai.UiiiiiA.NCt;.- iue lol-:Total of Texan Troops* towmg IS tue oaUl of allegiance wiUCH tne;   We the eth r day condfns*4 from t! citizuud Of WaritovMe lieuu.J, are request- [enumeration of nil tho Ttxas-jroopin: wU to iakc by mo .L.uootu aiitraps.
