Let us Compare: t , . , 4 Illinois contains forty-si i persons t t-Terj quare mile of her territory. An equal pop. million would distribute over the b;uad and fertile area of this State umre than welve and a half millious of people, equal w ithin a fraction to one-third of the present pulatiou of all the bind s and lerritortes. Illinois h& one mile of railroad for every nine aud a hull square miles of her area; au qua! number Would give to lexas twentv- ive tli"U.-and milei, (md to oim-tj.ird of he railway mileage ot tnet-nitit cotrn y. 1 he assessed value ot Hie real and per sonal property of Illinois is one hundred and ninety aud one-eighth dollars per capi ta; an equivalent valuation to tue popular tion of Texas, as augmented by these comparisons, would give to her people $2,391,- 000,000. Although essentially an agricul tural State, one-fifth of the industrial population of Illinois is employed in manufacturing and mecuauical pursuits. . . ... lexas needs to be invaded with an intel ligent and enterprising population, but her vast frontier will not be inhabited, nor the Indian, standing like a wall of fire in the pathway of an incoming people, be sub dued to the influences of civilization until tlie locomotive shall awaken the silence of bis plains and hills with the thunder of his tread. . .. .... ... Thousands of miles of railway are re quired to open tip the vast interior and render it accessible to remunerative mar kets; and then such a diversity ot indus-1 tries as will develop, net merely the agri- cultural.but the mineral and manufacturing resources ol tue state. Stripped of the binderauces which have hitherto fettered her giant limbs, .and under the inspiration of her new life, it will not be long until ber bills and plains will be filled w ith many millions of industrious people. 1 he iron horse will be everywhere, iiis countless trains gatbering-ia the golden harvests and bearing them away to the markets of the world. i The ring of the., anvil, the. song of .tlie shuttle and the bum of industry Willi lie neartl throughout the length and hreadih of her broad domaiu. " 1 ' ! Thus starting out upon her matchless career ot material and sotial development, and in the presence of possi bilities so stupendous, tne star of her empire shines with a more radiant lnstre than ever before, and standing amidst the heavens of. a glorious destiny, she throws her golden lines in graceful beauty upon the twilight of a departing century. Thus endowed with the elements of unjiur-alleled advancement, the golden treasures winch nestle in the bosom ol ber mountains shall be developed, tho flowing;vint- oge shall issue from her vine-clad bills, and tne richer treasures of her exhatistless Gal leys will be brought, into requisition, and tue people shall be satifched. les,' all the people shall rejoice while they gather the fruits and contemplate their victories of peace; and thus shall ( Her flowers untrampled spring, . ; Her harvests wave, oerws liBer--t i And yat, till time ahall fold hia wiug, Uemaia earth a lovtdiaat paradise. ( After Mr. Bonner, the party was ad dressed, upon bis invitation, by ex-Pvor; nor Hamilton, in short but appropriate- remarks. He expressed himself much gmti: fied at the opening of this enterprise, and hoped the community and country would heartily respond in its support.' ! ppeeches were also made, upon call, by ex-Governor Pease, Mr. BrucggcrhofT, Gen eral Shelley and Mr. Hoffman, of St. Louis. They were all of a congratulatory character, and General Shelley's was a direct ap peal to the people to encourage home enter prises. I lie liencral talks well on all Sub jects, and his arguments upon this occasion were well directed. Mr. Hoffman, the last named speaker, is interested in the Eagle Steam Mills, of St. Louis, and he acknowledged that Mr. Bonner was turning out brand of flour equal to the best St. Louis brands. ' "'"' !! i . We will state, on our -own part, after seeing a thorough comparison between Mr. Bonner's "XXXX Rising Star" and a sample of the "Eagle Steam," that our decided opinion as to purity and color was in favor of the first, and we are satisfied after all the testimonials at hand that it is equal to any brand of flour made in the United States. We will often recur to this occasion at the mill as a most pleasant one, and all present concur with us. , : .,: Okb hundred thousand cigars of all grades, at New York and New Orleans prices, for sale at E.

The track, we learn from Colonel Anderson, who was the surveyor, will be on a level with the sidewalks, and the streets rounded up to it from the gutters on either side. So the ties laid upon the streets, as they now are, will bring the track to about the proper level. The directors of the road decided yesterday to turn the road from Pecan street, at the new Wolf building, and continue it on one block beyond the railroad track, and there make the terminus for the present.. ? This was done for two reasons. In the first place it will better enable the company to continue their road on Cedar street down to the freight depot, crossing Waller creek on the bridge that already spans the stream. And in the next place it i3 believed that by passing directly along where' the cars stop, the receipts of the road would, be' greatly enhanced. We think tho change a wise one, and we rejoice that Austin is. so oon to have a street railroad.
