Raw-hide Texas Shores. --Captain Clark Owens, of Texan, Jackson county, Texas, has a company of eighty men, now stationed a Houston, Texas, defending the coast and city of Galveston. Many of these gallant soldiers are welshed with the raw hide shoes, which in symmetry and utility are not behind the best shoes used in our Southern Confederacy. The beef hide is placed in water and and remains there until the hair will come off, the hide is then soaked in fresh water and rubbed until the lye is extracted; it is then soaked from 48 to 60 hours in strong salt and water; this prevents the hide from ever becoming hard and horny; it is then dried in the open air. not in the sun, and then beat with a maul or mallet until it becomes as pliable as leather; it is then made into shoes, as shoemakers make other shoes. The upper part and soles are all made of this prepared raw hide, and made by sewing or pegging on the sole. The shoes are then well greased with oil, hog's lard or tallow,
