Governor Throckmorton of Texas. correspondent x. A. Times March 03. An Effort will soon be made to induce major1 general Sheridan to remove governor Throckmorton of Texas. The Union men now Heve from that state claim Fiat it will be a sold a for them to attempt to organize a govern Niento under the Bill while he is in Power As his , and All the patronage of his position will be used by him in behalf of the rebels and the disfranchised classes.

Union Quot Man will be secured a no matter what the desire of the administration May be. As the 1 to require All officers to take the ironclad test oath. Throckmorton cannot it and there a a re lint few men of prominence it the state who can. Quot among them Are a Lido Paschal judge Sherwood and judge Thomas All a a Radical unionists. True Fame. The Chicago Post speaking of the Coni me Cement of that herculean work the Lake Tunnel pays a just tribute to the Man who projected and executed it Lut the people were not satisfied with delay. They could stand on the Shore in Liec Envis of the City and look upon the coca sparkling pure water of yonder mighty Lake the coveted treasure so near Aud they cried out with one voice who is Tho Man who can. Give us this water for our use the cry was heard the Man was there who with the modesty that is Ever the companion of Genius said that he thought a Tunnel might to built far under the bed of the Lake two Miles in length and there whore the water was thirty live feet in depth pure and Cool in All seasons the Supply could he obtained. This declaration which brought gladness to so Many was received with doubt and distrust by other. It was Quot Quot no vol untre Myrtho exp use Leaf Clyto be Esti Quot mated Aud failure imminent but the Man of science was not to to moved from his position. He showed them the plan pointed out All the advantages admitted Tho risk but advised the trial. The plan was prepared the Cost estimated and be sons were appointed to present Oiler to to build a Tunnel two Miles Loag it under Lake Jiezhi an.

A new in Leld fur american Enterprise. The san Francisco bulletin comm ii Sas follows on the above subject 1 the Telegraph lately gave currency to lit statement that the american trading has obtained a Grant of the entire not it a. Part of the Island of Borneo together with three adjacent islands with jurisdiction Over the inhabitants. There is probably some truth in this statement. The company in. Question was originated by Boston merchants who have always had a keen Eye for the a it Indian and China Trade and who wore Tho first to present to Congress the project tor steam mail communication Beck a Eti Satt Francisco Japan and China. The very Bill Thiu Bec Iune a Law authorizing Tho of this important service was drawn up we believe by Boston merchants and by them placed in Tho hands of the Pacific delegation. It is very natural this Enterprise Shenul be followed up by Mother looking to the a a Orui iii Tio f territory lying in the pathway of the China line. Borneo which is an crib cd of the malay archipelago Lieo under the . Tor South of the Phillipino Lelanda and next to Australia is the largest Island in the world. It.
