etter than the cattle-runs; the Negro being less brutal, if more vicious, than the Kickapoo. I cannot say that in Texas a fellow thinks it wrong to kill his creditor, his wife's seducer, and his tipsy comrade. It will be long ere Austin and Indianola are as tame as Norwich and Yarmouth, but the Anglo-Saxon blood is there, with all its staying power. A few English ladies would assist the progress of refining much. A lady never feels her sceptre till she finds herself the empress of some frse. Gone without violence? Yes, by natural causes; gone as all bad things should go: by means of natural law. Europe has saved us from the curse of Negro rule. It is the immigration, chiefly flowing in from Liverpool to Galveston and Indianola, that has restored the balance of White power in Texas. Except the runaways from Red River, few Negroes have entered Texas; while, since the war, more than a hundred thousand Whites have come in from English ports. Untainted by secession, the

he adjoining country from our sight. The waves are long and smooth. A flock of snow-birds flutter in our wake, and swoop with easy undulation on their prey. A semi-tropical languor lies on every face. As day comes on the mist clears off, and through the vanishing haze we catch along the shores a fringe of cypress and cotton-wood, with roots in swamp and pool, and branches hung with vegetable filth — the noisome and funereal weed called Spanish moss. Our vessel, plying between Indianola, in Texas, and Brashear, in Louisiana, skirts two of the rich Gulf States, and connects the port of Galveston with the river at New Orleans. She carries few natives, either Mexican or American. Her passengers, like her crew, are mostly Scotch and English; for the ports and towns in Texas are nearly all built by British capital and settled by British families. It is the old, old story of our race. Who planted Virginia and Massachusetts? Who peopled Georgia, Pennsylvania, Maryland? The sev
oof, sure I” the rebels think; Who ever heard of Yankee trick That worked than this more cute and slick? The Butternuts waste shell and shot, Their cannonade gets loud and hot, They burn their powder, burst their guns, And shake the shores with deafening stuns. Louder than powder, on our side, Our soldiers laughed until they cried; Some held their ribs, some rolled on grass, To think Secesh was such an ass. Nor was this din of laugh and gun, The choicest part of Porter's fun. The Queen of the West, that captive ram, Escaped by flight a dreaded jam., Away she went, we know not where! But hers was not the biggest scare,-- For down the stream, their valued prey, The captured Indianola lay. They thought to fit this costly prize, To run and “blast the Yankees' eyes ;” But blew her up, as the scow drew near- Blew her to shivers, in their fear. And so let all their projects burst And blow to atoms Treason curst; But long live all our jolly tars, The Union too, with the Stripes and

On the receipt of this alarmind, as Governor Owens had six fine carbines, which he was also taking down to Indianola for the protection of his freighters on the Rio Grand, preparatory to any atating safely arrived in Lavaca early in the afternoon, were at once driven to Indianola, where they cleaned up, including a most welcome bathing and shaving, at the like a truant school-boy. It was my son's intention to take the steamer at Indianola for Galveston immediately upon arriving at the former place; but on account oot have held against a habeas corpus. Court had just set at the place, and Indianola was full of lawyers, hungry as vultures for just such a rich case; but by con

began to form, then brigades and divisions, shops and depots of supplies were established, ordnance was gathered, and river boats were transformed into an armed navy. The army so greatly due to his organizing ability and enthusiasm afterward won its triumphs and had its glories as well as the armies of Tennessee and Northern Virginia. The Federal post at Bayou des Allemands was captured, Weitzel's imposing advance down the Lafourche was checked by the determined fighting of 500 men, the Indianola was destroyed in naval combat, and at Berwick's Bay the Federals were forced to turn over to General Taylor 1,700 prisoners, 12 guns and vast military stores. But his operations for the relief of New Orleans were rendered futile by the fall of Vicksburg. In the spring of 1864 he was called upon to encounter the formidable invasion of the Red river country, composed of nineteen gunboats under Admiral Porter, 28,000 men under Banks, and 7,000 from Arkansas under Steele.
