Hall, Esq., one of the partners in the popular firm of Sawyer, Risber it Hall, the great stage proprietors of Texas. Mr. Hall is now on his way to Washington City to meet Mr. Sawyer, who has preceded him, the great mail contracts in whioh they are heavily engaged. We are glad to see Mr. Hall in robust health, and apparently well Few of our readers, not even in Texas, aware of the full magnitude of the stage tri in that great and rapidly growing State, or of passengers, and thnf witl regularity seldom if ever country.

Since horses bitched to stages we do not believe that owners or contractors ever had as many f the i Pennsylvt Coast, a through to Red River ; you can take seat on Matagorda Bay, and they will s i oSBVew Mexico, a wish to go that far, and it is a matter of eieht hundred or a thousand miles. These are some of the through lines we all the way through a country larger Pennsylvania, t together ; To give i f the busi great I ry day, and as the demand calls for it, they putting on more lines ; and the time will le when their running stock will be found traversing nearer ten thousand miles of public highw s horns will enliven road in e have said that their stages and teams f the best. Their coaches are all Troy , save that during wet weather they are el!ed to run Concord mud stages, while horses are all of the finest they can pur chase, and invariably well fed, well groomed and well cared for.
