Wednesday january 21, 181 1 Arkansas state Treasury is about 194,000 Short with the returns not All in. Costly Are the luxuries of a democratic state treasure ship. The fort Worth gazettes a on to Albuquerque yields no returns after All these months and the Gazette declares the a on to a off a and Calls from labor to refreshment. The leaders of the Republican Senate Are taking Greaff pains to induce the party to commit political Hari Karl. The present Texas speaker is a native of Alabama. He has spent All his years since infancy in Texas and has been for ten years a Texas editor. If this will not qualify him wha will is the press of Texas to understand that the election of an editor to the speaker ship indicates a willingness to do Justice Tot he fraternity Aud pass a decent libel Law Wood and Peticolas have done themselves credit by ret using the take advantage of a technicality which they might have successfully urged to claim their seats in the present legislature. There were sixty three women and children found on wounded knee Battle ground. These squaws shoot and fight As readily Ami As savagely As the bricks and Are not noncombatants and yet the demo cratic journals speak of 193 innocent women and children being ruthlessly slaughtered by the Union soldiers. It would be a Good Experiment to place some of these critics in front of a she Bioux Guu land find out what he thinks of the situation. Southwest immigration the political Freedom enjoyed in every Section of Southwest Texas no less than the unprecedented advantages offered to immigrants with Small capital for making Homes for themselves upon this Fertile soil have determined the current of settlement this Way. Every weekly newspaper published in Southwest Texas attests this fact. The columns of the journals Are filled with notices of the farms being broken up of the Orchards and nurseries gardens and draperies and every evidence of the fast that with the Hoe and the plow has come to Texas and has come to stay. While this is True it is also True that the great bulk of this new settlement is in the counties to the South of us. Notably in Bee Cuero nieces 8au Patricio and Arkansas. Karnes county shows symptoms of a overflow Aud were the Large ranges in that county opened to settlement no doubt that half a Hundred new farms would be opened in that county this year. One naturally inquires if there is any Good reason other than perhaps the cheapness of the lands offered Why ail this immigration these far mass of the future should pass this county by and pitch their tents nearly a Hundred Miles nearer the coast. There Are certainly unoccupied lands enough in Bexar county lands that would yield a Good return to the agriculturalists to make it Worth while for prospectors to remain Aud examine. Yet these men pass right through without a halt and Only bring up when they have reached their destination Miles below us. This indicates that before coming they had some specific Point in View and leads one to conclude that parties interested to farm ing lands in the counties mentioned above have been advertising their lands North Aud corresponding with practical concerning their settlement. A real knowledge of the facts involved would no doubt fully justify this conclusion and teach our land owners who have farming lands that they desire to put upon the Market that they must advertise their lands or see them passed by for the lands of neighbouring counties. Outside of this a City Bexar county has a very sparse population. It would be a very great advantage to the regular Trade of this City of an additional 20,009 were added to the county population outside the corporate limits. These Farmers would find a Good Market being in the immediate Vicinity of the barges to City in the state and the Small difference in the original Cost of lands would be More than compensated for u this available Market. While ban Antonio will be somewhat benefited by the increased farming operations of every Community in Southwest Texas she would receive greater Benefit from the opening of such farms lither immediate Vicinity. This eau be done. The lands Are Here and the Market is Here and the Sellers Are Here All that is necessary is to bring the various parties together. Battlement will follow necessarily.

Hoi week and Many others. The attempted fore aug of unwilling republicans to vote the Force Bill will have no Good effect either within the party or upon the country. If the Republican party can Only maintain its hold upon the country through such measures it will certainly lose its grip. The More or such legislation it consummate the More unpopular will it become. When James g. Blaine secures the opinion of some competent Legal tribunal upon the matters involved in that Behring sea controversy it is dollars to dimes that or. Blaine is not no suited. The american Secretary understands his Case. Blaines cause will lose nothing by being heard in the United states supreme court. If the Behring Case is Ever carried there by John Bull he will be no suited As sure As shooting Blaine will not go into that or any court without a Case. The democrats who expect to see him worsted in this controversy Are going to be badly disappointed. Little ban Marcos that rushed the mourners to quarantine against ban Antonio has two cases of her own Aud feels awfully disquieted because the quarantine cry is raised against her. The Glass House people make mistakes when they throw stones. The democratic pessimists who cannot even measure the proportions of Blaines toot unless by Tho spread of their coat tails Are mouthing Over the ridiculous figure two Ipoh Blaine cuts As foreign Secretary.

To d prom Corpus Christi Bay directly into the deep water of the Gulf of Mexico is being dredged night and Day the work being prosecuted 20 hours a Day. It will be Cut to a depth of thirty feet and admit the heaviest ships. It will be supplemented by Stone jetties if necessary. It has the Best tidal Basin on the entire Gulf coast West of Mobile. Corpus Christi Bay is the deepest Bay West of Mobile. Its deep Waters lie close to ropes pass. It will receive and discharge More water with each tide than any Bay on the coast. Mom Waler will Quot scr with each tide than through any pass West of the Mississippi. This is what produces and maintains deep water across any Sandbar. The More water passing through a pass the More a a scour and the deeper water across the bar if properly directed. No bar exists in Trout of ropes pass. Should one Ever form we shall build jetties across it just As is now being done at All other passes. A jetty at ropes pass will give deeper water than one at any other pass simply because More water will be received and discharged through it with every tide than is received or discharged through any other pass. Indeed whatever results can be obtained with jetties or any other engineering appliances at any other pass will be surpassed at ropes pass appliances because they will have a greater volume of water acting with them. A jetty which will maintain 30 feet at any other pass must there fore maintain More than 30 feet Here. Corpus Christi is bound to have the deepest water of the Hlf til ast in addition to deep water we have at Corpus Christi the richest farm and Garden lands extending Miles into the Interior. Our planters raise one Bale of Cotton to the acre and not uncommonly More. Tit of it it have the most Beautiful situation overlooking Corpus la i j Christi Bays.
