The purchase of a quarter-million acre tract of land in Mexico by Utah parties, indicates that Mormonism is getting ready to "move on," The Inter-State act has increased low freights, but has not reduced high freights.

AUSTIN-, Tex., April 18—The cpuri of appeals has just rendered a deci sion which has thrown the gambling fraternity into a flutter. The case was Wm. Porter vs. the State, from Collier country ;charge, theft. 1'ort er, while engaged in a game of cards borrowed money from a bystandei to use in the game, on promise to pay it back after the game was over He failed to do so, and the man loaning the money had him indictee for theft. He was found guilty in the lower court and appealed his case, which has been affirmed. Judge White, who rendered the opinion said among other things that if the taking, though originally lawful,was obtained by a false pretence or witl the intent of depriving the owner o the value thereof and appropriate the property to the use, etc., of the person taking, the offence is complete.

Feople are remarking, everywhere, and tlioy are not all enemies,that nearly all the men who are being tried for ballot stalling and kindred crimes in different parts of tlio country are Irish Catholics, orjbear Irish Catholic names. In this city every man so tnod has belonged to .that class. In Chicago ana .New Tork nearly all the boodlers , are Irish Catholics. It is shameful; but what are we going to do about itf We iuu§t put m a mild disclaimer right here. These,ballot stuffing and boodling Irish Catholics norer go to church. The. ballot burglars m St. Louis are our parishj hoodlums. They never go to church, and their Sundays are spent in saloons or driving their bloated Molls along the frequented thoroughfares. The ballot burglars are » more cowardly and dirtier race ol penitentiary birds; nothing more. Th6 priests do not speak of the crime of ballot stuffing: any more than they do burglary, lur the very good reason that the ballot staffers, like tho burglars, never come within ear shot of tho pulpit.— St. Louis Watchman^ Uatholic.
