William Blair, a Scotch cleric, the head of the Established Church in the colony. Of this body of material, one bit is of more than ephemeral value. For when the persugural Oration. Almost at the same time (1776) Timothy Dwight, then a tutor, gave a course of lectures on style and composition similar in plan to the lectures of Blair, then not yet published. During his presidency Dwight resumed the teaching of belles lettres, probably with the same scope as that of Blair's rhetoric—the study oBlair's rhetoric—the study of diction and style in the narrower sense. Rhetoric at Yale, however, was until a late period generally rather a step-child in the family of the arts. At Harvard, rhetoric has been taught continuously and systematically.

d the State so well. Bratton, the Meanses, the Aikens, the Davises, Rion, McMaster, Woodward and Black were heroes enough for Fairfield. But the heroism of our troops was not confined to their leaders. The descendants of those, who had fought under the Brattons and McLures in the Revolution, were as brave as their leaders and as conscientious in the discharge of their duty. In that old Waxhaw churchyard I have seen this quaint inscription upon a stone: Here lies the body of William Blair, who departed this life in the sixty-fourth year of his age on the 2d July, A. D, 1821, at 9 P. M. He was born in the county of Antrim, Ireland, on the 24th March, 1759. When about thirteen years old he came with his father to this country, where he resided till his death. He was a Revolutionary patriot, and in the humble station of private soldier and wagon master, he contributed more to the establishment of American independence than many whose names are proudly emblazoned on the

Interesting from Texas. New Orleans, May 9. --We learn by the Orizaba, arrived from Texas to-day, that Gen. Van Dorn had left Victoria on the 6th inst. with the McCullogh Regiment and other forces, to intercept Col. Reeves' command of United States troops, six hundred strong, above San Antonio. Major Lloyd Beall, Capt. R. W. Johnson, Second Cavalry; Capt. Wm. Blair, Lieuts. Ramsour, Fourth, and Howard, Third U. S. Artillery, had resigned. Capt. Lee's Company, Eighth Infantry, had surrendered at San Antonio. Col. Waite, successor of Gen. Twiggs, is a prisoner of war, on parole. The crops will surpass any harvest ever reaped. Texas has made provision for large quantities of brass cannon and other arms for the defence of the State.
