been fairly paid a full and just compensation for their improvements, crops, and all such property as they left through necessity or choice. This single measure, says Dr. Starr, relieved the frontier of the entire east, carried forward the settlements at least one hundred miles, and gave to our citizens permanent occupancy of a region not surpassed in fertility and all the elements for successful agriculture by any portion of the State. The counties of Rusk, Cherokee, Anderson, Smith, Henderson, Van Zandt, Wood, Upshur, Hunt, Kaufman, Dallas, and others, were subsequently formed from territory which could not be safely peopled by whites till these treacherous Indians were expelled. The counties named above contained in 1870 a population of 116,370, with property assessed at $15,857,191. The faults charged against the white race in its dealings with inferior races must, in this case, be laid at the door of the United States, if anywhere, and not of Texas. The savages were subjec

t Point Lookout followed and he did not regain his liberty until April, 1865. Returning to his home in Mississippi he resumed his studies and in 1871 was graduated at the university of Mississippi. After teaching school for one year he entered the Presbyterian theological seminary at Columbia, where he was graduated in 1875. He then studied at the university of Edinburgh, Scotland, and returning to America about a year later found his first field of labor as pastor of three churches, in Henderson and Transylvania counties, N. C. In December, 1877, he was called to the Memorial church at New Orleans, and in July, 1888, he was elected to his present position as chaplain and professor of mental and moral philosophy at the South Carolina college. Captain John Floyd, a prosperous planter, an exmerchant, and in his early manhood a gallant Confederate soldier who fought for the South in Virginia, Maryland, Mississippi and Florida, was born in Darlington county, S. C., January 20, 1836
ily use, salt works were established in eastern Texas, in Cherokee and Smith counties, and at Grand Sabine in Van Zandt county, where before the close of the war there were about forty furnaces operating and turning out to supply the country hundreds of bushels of salt every day. In the west salt was furnished from the salt lakes. Iron works were established for making plows and cooking vessels near Jefferson, Rusk and Austin, and perhaps at other places. At jug factories in Rusk and Henderson counties were made rude earthenware dishes, plates, cups and saucers, and bowls for family use, that were spread over the country. At other shops wagons were made and repaired, and in small domestic factories chairs, tables and other furniture were made. Shoe-shops and tailor-shops were kept busy all over the country. Substitutes for sugar and coffee were partially adopted, but without much success. By such devices the people of Texas became self-supporting, and being blessed with a fertile
A White man murdered by his slave. The Jackson (West Tennessee) Whig states that Mr. J. Harrison Trice, who resided near Mafflin, Henderson county, was murdered on Saturday last by his own negro man. Mr. Trice was about to chastise the boy, when he was overcome by him, and thrown to the ground, and his throat cut from ear to ear. A jury of twelve slaveholders was impaneled on Monday, and after a patient hearing of the evidence, and upon his own admission of the crime, condemned the negro to be hung at 2 o'clock P. M., upon the ground where the murder was committed. The sentence of the jury was promptly executed.
rgus (Oct. 26th) has the following in regard to affairs in Kentucky: By the news just in from Owensboro', Davies county, Ky., I learn that Colonel J. S. Jackson is occupying that place with about 300 Yankees and Dutch, some forty of them wounded. He has made numerous arrests, and permitting unprovoked outrages and robberies of Southern-rights families, in which pursuit he has an able adjutant in Brigadier. General T. L. Crittenden, who is similarly employed in the town and county of Henderson, he having some 3,000 Lincolnites in that section, mainly brought from Indiana and Illinois. Both these leaders have signally failed in obtaining recruits in Kentucky. Since my last another accident, the result of the careless handling of fire-arms, has occurred, the victim being a member of Col. Helm's cavalry, whose name I did not learn. The wound is dangerous, a ball passing entirely through his foot. A portion of the Federal force is now in the immediate vicinity of Bacon c
From Kentucky. Nashville, Nov. 7. --A few days ago Col. Forrest, with 600 of his Rangers, started from Piketon, Ky., on an expedition to Osco river. He first visited Ashbysburg, on Green river, where it was reported there was a large force of Yankees, but they found none. They then went to Henderson on the 28th, but the enemy were found flying on their approach. They returned to Princeton on the 29th. A detachment of Yankee troops visited Cassville in Union county, on the 30th, and stole about one hundred hogs and beeves. It has since been ascertained that the hogs and beeves belonged to a Union man. Surgeon Van Wick, of Forrest's regiment, was shot and killed by a Lincolnite by the name of Belt, in Henderson county, Ky., on the 30th. Belt was arrested, but escaped.--Dr. Van Wick was from Huntsville.
be a large estimate. It is a mistake to suppose he is receiving large accessions from the people of Kentucky. His raid is not on a scale of sufficient magnitude to inspire confidence. It lacks military character.--There is no evidence in it that he intends to remain long in the State. He cares nothing about his lines of communication, and moves across the Blue Grass region with the independence and freedom of a Bedouin Arab across the desert. He obtained but twenty-five recruits in Henderson county, and not many in Versailles. I hear that he has received considerable accessions from Owen county, one of the most pestilent holes in the State, but, there is no general rising. The idea of a horse thieving and plundering gang of scoundrels marching through their Empire State with impunity, is something they cannot tolerate with patience, Even the quest precedently openly disapprove of this raid, and have offered their services in defence of their cities and comes against such lawl
