It ia lus opinion and that of others with whom wo have spoken on this subject, that £.1 Western Texas is destined to become a timbered country, in the same way thn the former prairies of Kentucky, culled Barrens, have now become heavily timbered. They -were then Uioxigut to Yv valueless, now they are the most viilu able lands in tho State. But the growth of timber in Texa is more rapid than in any other coun try wo hnve ever seen. All torcst tree of a quick growth, acquire a thickuss I ot five or six inches in diameter, am often more, in five or six years, if an care is taten to protect them. Thi city, -where the soil is by no means fa vorable to the growth of trees, has ncv quite large shade trees on all ov streets, -where the least attention hsis been bestowed on them, though a fe years ago there was not a tree to b seen.

As proposed, there would be three members from that body and only one from the citizens and one from the Wharf Company. If the people are to have any relation to the matter, since the Council do not derive their status from the people, it is suggested that their voice be made more potent, say at least two from the people, the Mayor and one from the Council, and one from the Wharf Company. If the pcyide could Ijave an election, they should elect at least a majority of the board. We do not desire. to be captious, but thick it worthy of consideration. THE ATROCITY AT WASHINGTON. -- · Fur some time past we have been intimating that the negro-worshippers prevalent at the national capital would soon begin to manifest its natural results. Our dispatches this morning iudicate the inauguration, of a series of negro atrocities in that representative negro hole, which will certainly bear their part in making this a " white man's country." Either the negro and his peculiar friends will soon subside voluntarily, or will be invited to do so in a very unmistakable manner. Blood is considerably thicker than water. MESSIIS. AI.LEN, PorL it Co. ar making preparations to slaughter large number of boeves chiefly for tb. tallow. They are having sorno ver heavy machinery made in this city fo the purpose of obtaining the tallow bj steam. It is proposed to save th tonnges and choice parts of the bee such as tinder loin?, itc., to be soli daily at the market, and to fatten hog on the refuse after steaming out the tallow. The bides, horns, hoofs, an bones will of course be shipped This business is carried on at Corpu Christ! and several other places in th State, and we have been informed i proves profatable. But we trnst it will not be long be fore some means may be found to savi and export the Jeutire beef.

People from the North are flowing into tho Southern States across the river, and people from those States are flowing intc Texas. We may look for an increasing immigration of this kind, and oar people will greet it cordially. Bat we do not think they are doing as much as they should ou the immigration subject ia general. We are satisfied that the planters could combine their energies on a laod basis in such a way as to bring in. many valuable accessions to population in a very short time. PBOBABIX KEVOLDTION. -- It seems to be the general opinion that; should the present complications in France result id a revolution, which ia evidently anticipated, the downfall of the French Empire will tend to the general transformation of European Governments in Spain and Italy, shaking the thrones. of Europe generally.

We were drawn into the subject of forest tree: in speaking of tanning, in consequent of the general scarcity in Western Tex as of barks, or other substances containing the tannin principle. The scar city will not continue many years Even now Mr. Piialcn thinks we hav an abundance of good barks for tanni: in many parts of tho West, and near!; all of Eastern and Middle Texas and his own experience satislie him that the tanning of our ow leather is a most profitable busi ness, if properly conducted. In noth ing else is our want of enterpris more glaring than in. the fact of ou still continuing to send our huudrcc of thousands of hides to the Xorth t be made into leather, and then bringin them back at four or five times wha we got for them, -when, they could b made into leather at home for litt more than tho cost of traneportatio both ways. We invite information from all wh ever tried to supply this great want i our State. When we begin to make our leather the manufacturing of it into boots an shoes will follow as a matter of coursi In Salem, N. C., we saw the manufac ture of boots and shoes carried on sue cessi'ully with all the most improve machinery and labor-saving imple ments that have been invented. T) enterprising proprietor, Mr. HOMESTEAD SETTLEBS.--Tho preemption, and homestead laws require actual personal residence by each settler on the tract of land claimed by him. Requests have been received at Washington recently, from Nebraska, asking permission in behalf of many families that they may bo allowed to - go on' improving their claims without residing on them, ou account of apprehensions of Indian raids--the settlors wishing to live ia proximity to each other ia small villages for self-protection. The Commissioner decides that in case of temporary absence in consequence of actual danger from the Indians, settlers may, at the time of making proof and payment, show by testimony under oath that the cause of the temporary absence was from apprehensions of danger from actual incursious in that vicinity of hostile Indians, and that they did not at any time abandon t'aeir claims, but returned at the earliest day consistent with safety How 10 lui'uovE COTTON.--An observer writes in tho Brandon (Miss.) Republican that a second stand of cotton comes up a fuw days after the first, and that in a feiv days more a third stand would appear, but that generally before this time the cotton is thinned out, leaving tho first stand to mature for a crop. It is also stated that this first stand.comes from the blixck, Hnt- less seed, tho second stand from seed with more lint, and the third, which should bo saved and cultivated, from thick, heavy linted sejd. The p'.an for securing this last growth is thus given : Plant your seed any way you prefer; cover with a plow (small), let the ridge stand. "When the first is up good, run a broad or light harrow over it so as to kill the first growth, and if done the TENNESSEE. -- We are daily expecting to hear of the renewal of troubles in Tennessee.

" EMANCIPATION DAY " -- JUDG DAVIS.--A correspondent at Montgom ery speaks very favort.bly of the ac dress delivered, on tho 17tb, by Hon N. H. Davis Judge of the 13th Distric before a large audience of colored folk who 'were celebrating " emancipatio day." He ';says the Judge assure them that the whites enjoyed thw freedom, from the cares and responei bililies of slaveholding about as muc! as the blacks could delight in their ow liberty. He told them to cherish n of re-enslavement, as the white would not re-establish slavery even it were in their power to do so. H advised them in the most forcible term to favor the adoption ot the constitu tion, as securing them all the right necessary to their security and improvement ; and gave them a warning against carpet-baggers aud scalawags accompanied with a severe castigation of those classes, who, ho said, wer tho objects of his' most nnntterabl scorn and loathing. Much other goo( advice was given in the address, which our correspondent thinks, will have very salutary influence upon the freedmen. It will be recollected that, during th session of the Convention, Judge Davis addressed a letter to Judge Caldwell hairmaa of the Crime Committee, bearing testimony that peace andgooc order prevailed in tho nine counties o; his District. A FOOLISH " SPEECH. -- Senator Pomeroy made a speech at Chicago, ;he other day, in which he boasted oi lis piety and of his having kept a ;emperance pledge, and tiraded against secret societies. He proposed to ' slaughter the kings of Masonry and Md-Fellowship," because they -were 'opposed to American institutions. le said- these organizations ' " had no Christ" -- that they. had "taken away he Lord, and we know not whero tiey lave laid him." "He regards a man foing into a lodge as turning his back tn Christ." We certainly have no very high of the American Congress, but we could not have believed that, even n its present degeneracy, it contained a man capable of uttering such balder- ash as the above. same way with the second growth that comes up, so much the better; then tho last that comes up will bear aeed after its own kind, and upon the seed good long staple lint; and by so doing in a feV years cotton would be greatly improved. THE JUBILEE.--A correspondent of the Ne w York Tribune says the'''heavy" aingiug at tho Boston Jubilee was a failure. The choru?, closely packed, covered a suifuce of 300 square feet, so that the voices of the rear rank had that mush further to travel than thosa. of the Iront rank, making a difference which can be appreciated by the ear. Tho slow pieces were tolerably successful, but alt rapid pieces and movements were a confusion. Last year, he says, 1000 people sang at a festival in Boston and produced a much greater effect han the 10,000 who sang there on the luth. A gentleman o:t Augusta writes to Col. Weil, Commissioner of Immigration lor Georgia, that he has formed a company with a capital of thirty thousand dollars, to purchase lands of the best quality, and will give each immigrant twenty-five acres, and assist and them moans to make the first "crop. That proposition ought to bring them. Would it not be to tlie interest of many land owners in Texas to make even a ruore liberal olTor, provided only the immigrants arc of good character? We have millions of acres of the best lands in the world perfectly useless to the owners and the rest of the world, and yet we hear of no efforts being made to have them settled and made valuable. Wooden Hull roads. .Editors News. Since public Rttentfon has been largely directed to tU« construction of wooden railroads, every item of experience on the subject becomes highly interesting. And as several communities ia Texas are now engaged in organizing companies for.the construction of short lines of this kind, varyiag from 10 to 50 miles or more, and since one company has been specially chartered for a road of more that 50 miles, and a company fully organized for it's construction,it will be instructive to those and others contemplating like works, to read tbe essay I Bend you, by an able engineer, upon the'woraing of the system in New York and Canada. It is proper to remark that the system I have adopted, and now have before the Patent Office- for patent on several features, very materially simplifies and cheapens tbe construction of roado, as indicated in this paper. Yet we can not get either labor or materials at these estimates, in Texas. On most of the lines proposed, on which I bare made estimates, thq cost of the wooden road, by my method, wonld be about $3000, specie, per mile, including a minimum amount of rolling stock. The durability would vary with the kind and quality of timber used; but as post oak is the most abundant timber, it may be safely estimated at seven years for the life of the first set of- rails. Ten yeara is a merely likely period, fine Tails,, clear stuff, would last Gve to seven years. Either would last as long as if used in the iron road, and would- be required in )es« .quantities on the wooden than tlie iron track. Let those who are discussing the subject sear in mind that the wooden road would ransport all tbe freight and passenger! that would be offsred--and the iron rotd could do no iuore--and that the flame, rates could ba obtained on either; hance, f there be $500C per mile traffic -earned on a wooden road, costing $3000 per mile, and at 30 per cent, expense, it is 'frreatly eUer than the same amount .earned, at 50 per cent, expanse, . upon an iron road, hat cost $25,000 per mile. The profit ii isarlT as 10 to 1. . . . ' · ' . The wooden road would then pay an normous dividend, while the iron road would not a good interest on the D vestment. ' . . .-. .. . .

Wo, however, trust our .farmers will see the iinportaaco of trying to put their surplus corn crop tc a-profitable use, orcn though the cost of transportation may prevent them from taking it to runrkot. We think more attention should 'be given to making bacon, for it was demonstrated during the war that there ig no better coun try for saving bacon than* Texas. Evory soldier stationed in Texas, and many of thosd in Louisiana arid Arkansas, will bear witness to tho superiority of Texas bacon. In no other State of the Uniun can hogs bo raised so cheaply and in such vast numbers, if our farmers would once turn their attention in that direction. In fact, it may be said that they raise tbomselvcs here pretty much as our cattle do, without any expcnse on our part for feed, but simply requiring a little attention. But it has been demonstrated that our hogs are greatly improved in weiglat and the quality of tho meal, by feeding them on corn a few weeks before killing them, about Christmas time. It has bcon proven by well attested and..carefully 'made'experiments, that every bushel of com thus fed out ia worth to tho farmer from 50 to 75 cents in the increased quality and quantity of his bacon and lard, aud tbcso will bear transportation to tlie best markets even at our present high rates of transportation^ This is a subject of greater importance to our people than is generally supposed. Let us therefore moko and save all tho corn we can, aud no longer allow ic to be destroyed by the weevil, if possible to be prevented. "We firmly believe there is more money in it than in cotton, if made u proper uso of, and certainly thcro is far less labor and "more independence in it- Let us learn something from our more prosperous neighbors of the North ami WW--Fiw eat iib huate doccri. "Wo conclude by remarking that the method for destroying the.weevil which has appeared to us tho best and most easily applied, is that used successfully for many "years by the late lamented Judge" Gabriel Felder, which- con-, sistcd in sprinkling water o.vcr ovcry load of corn as it" was thrown" iuto the crib, so that when tho crib was filled it wonld canso the whole crib to heat and throw off a hot vapor for a day or so, thereby effectually killing every weevil and destroying tbe egg. Bypur- suing this method, tho Judge informed us, ho had not lost a bushel of corn by tho weevil for many years. Ho always found .his corn perfectly bright and sound after tho heating proa cesg was over. BY TELEGRAPH. OUR C LOStNO SPKCIA9. NEW YORK MARKETS. HKW YORK, June 24, 1809. 3 P. M.--Gold closed at 13GJ.

June 24.--The Conservative-Republican Convention adjourned last ni, · ' '· " ' ' Union . . tind passed resolutions looting to the early reconstruction of tua Suite in stricvticcord- unce with the lawa of Conyresi; exiting forth the failure of all former and existing organizations to restore tbe State and meet the requirements of the republican spirit of our institutions, by insisting on measures ol proscription, far exceeding the requirements of the federal constitution and tue reconstruction acts, thus rendering them unworthy of the respect-and confidence of tbe voters of Mississippi. The resolutions also favored the proposed 15th amendment, and deprecate any attempt to impose greater disabilities than imposed by Congress ; expressing unwavering support of Grant's administration ; favor universal suffrage and universal amnesty ; and contain a pledge to urge Congress, on the restoration of the State, to remove the political disabilities of rebels.
