It is gratifying to note the fl i t ring prospect of au extremely bountiful crop of the grui t Southern staple. The Faust Mukdkr. At last the murderer of Mrs. Ftust in New Braun-fcls comes to a death bed and confesses committing one of the most horrible crimes on record. The O iczales Index l ta the story as follows: "Five yars ago, while Mrs. Faust and Miss Yoelker were sleeping alone in a house at New Braunfela, an assassin stole in with aa axe and killed Miss Velker and dangerouxly wounded Mrs. Faust. The husband of the latter lady, who was absent at the t'me, was arrested on suHpicion of being the murderer, and while lying in jail awaiting the action of the law was taken out r-nd brutally shot by a mob. Last week a man named M. P. Deavors died in Handera county, and jiist before his Heath be confessed tie murder of Miss Voelker. Hi was at tbis time an itinerant music t tacher, and taught vocal music in Gonztles for a time, hav ing with him two little girls, a little boy and a nephew. He confesses che deed was committed with the intention of robbing the house." The men who brutally shot poor Faust will now admit that he waa a better man than they were, and they should begin the work of repentance as soon as possible. The State-man gave a full account of the murder a day or two after it waa committed. Graves and Trees. Instead of stone monuments t tat go to decay and are blackened and broken and illegible within a century, why not plant a live oak on each gravai It Uvea a thousand years; gray moss on its gnarled branchta moves softly to and fro as if in unison with mournful cadences of the sighing winds; birds would sing in undisturbed, forest graveyarda ceaseless lullabies over the resting placea of the loved and loat Instead of rudely stained - monuments, broken and blackened by storms and tempests, by vexing heat of summer and cracked by freezing blasts of win-t r, our graveyards would have infinite cbarma, sanitary and ornamental. We would rather be a Druid, worshiping the gray old oaks which themselves lift up brawny arms in supplication te invoke heaven's pitying tears, than bend before cold, lifvleaa, motionless marble that tella, aa it ia dissolved into black-nesi and dust, no story of immortality. There would be a splendid magnificence in sturdy oaks drawing sustenance from bones and skulls and bodies, thus obeying nature's mandate and entering upon a new life as mortal as successive generations of trees. Distinctions between poveity and riches sought to be maintained on the exterior of t imbs, while decay and worms and dissolution recognize no differences of birth or fott ine or death, would no longer exist. : Two old unsightly tombstones, at Mount Leb-enoa graveyard, having been remover, have been planted with foreat trees tuat will grow, and whea this generation i long forgotten, . these trees will bave grown in grandeur and will forever mark the flaoe of the dead.' .

The defendant Bled a mo-tioa for a aew t taL la the ease of Baker, charged with embcullemeBtol aa organ, most of the morning was cossnmed by defendant's attorney in selecting a jury.

Mr. Sisson testified that f 25 was all the claim he had against Biker and be received that amount from Baker, after the organ was pawned. He also tctt did that Bjker had the right at the end of six or eight months t purchase the organ and that he wuu;d deduct the amount of rent naid from the total. The case waa nbmitted to the jnry, but no verdict was received up to tie time Ol c osing the paper. Tbe Great Kvent of Veateislay A ;ru4 Ir for th Capital. Chambers Brothers, tbe vigorous builders and pmnetors of the Colora do Merchant Mills, two miles belo this city, ceUbrated the inauguration Tnesdsv of active "business oi eration. Tbe structure they bave reared is five stories high and so bolted t tgetber with iron and to tie massive founda tion atonea that no tempest will ever shake ic There are four seta of stones of four feet diameter each, and the productive capacity ' 125 batrels of Hour per diy. The ruachineiy and a ones are especially adapted to tbe cse of Nicaragua wheat, it being much harder than the wheat of the Northwest and making better bread. E irh grain of wheat is fubjected to thirty- live sjp-.ra ions tiroagh nioetsuu processes. Oje purpose is to prevent the beating of the wheat by the too rapid conversion of the grain into fl iur. The whole mill machinery is propelled bj a turbine wheel sixty-six inches in di ameter. By this wheel a wrougtt iron shaft sevei ty-five feet long and four inches in duwe'er ia mtde to revolve and by this shaft the whole machinery of the mill is set in ui niou. It nay be proper to say that this turbine beel is pivoted within s.one walls of great thickness aud ti it it is in ale to revolve with incalculable rapidity by the rushiug waters of the pent up Co'-orado. In the bsenpnt the shafts from the wheel is connected by bands and gearing with t io ' machinery of tie mill. In the lirat story tbe grinding a id sacking me done; in tbe second a ory the bolting and separations; in the third story the. second bolting, cooling and purifying; here there are two seta of chilled iron rollers to crack the grain. Oo the fourth fl tor refiners aud agitators, chatters and coolers perform t leir proper cilices. The ma chinery of the mill, as shown by its open t ons yeiterday, moves wttb perfect accuracy and precision and there is not the stightest larrlsg in the aoliJly constructed build ing. The builders ana owners of this splendid structure are the Brothers Chambers, who confess that tie perfection of the mill snd its ma chinery is due to the wondetful skill and mechanical genius of J. .1. WAI.TEKH 'USE, TUB MACHINIST, . AND W. M. RAND, THE MaLLEO. B th these are thoroughly educated get t emen from the best polytechnic school of the North. The interest felt by the public in the success of the Messrs. Chambers was shown in the fact that throughout tbe day Tuesday the mill was thronged with men -and women curious to see tie wonderful mills of which they had heard ao much. A table waa spread fifty feet long. Oa it bread mideof every grade of Ji ur produced by the mill was prof fered the guests by the Messrs. Chambers, and other needful refreshments were generously dispensed. THE SPEECHES. . About 5 o'clock the thropg at the mill was greatest. -There were as many ladies as gentlemen about the attract ive place. Some one finally proposed that Judge Terrell occupy the place of chairman that proper expression might be given to tbe opinions and wiBbes of tie people. Then it was that the crowd demanded the appearance of the senior brother of the mill owners. He said substantially : lMdie and Ueiitlemen. - - In our com ing together on thia somewhat novel occasion, being comparatively stran-gri to you, it perhaps becomes a duty we owe to ourselves as well as you tj give a short account of our being here and beg leave to name some persons tiat we teel indebted to as the means to this end. ' First, would name Paul Bremond and Judge Crosby of Hous ton, I. R. Hoxi" and Mr. Strayhorn of Chicago; II. M. Hone of Palestine; Mai ); L. R. Bbryock of Austin, whose labors in our behalf has been unceas- Dg Vd to tDe result, it ia before you. We need not speak of tbe mill. the occasion of our pleasant coming together, it represents itself; we need not speak of what it is doing in mano fact u re of niur from Texas wheat; tbe product speaks for itself; snd if successful in manufacturing tbe Nicaragua wheat, ci which we haven't tbe least doubt, with the proper machinery, it promises nntold wealth for Texas which is destined to make her the banner wheat-growing State of this Union. Texts tl mr will then take the precedence of all other fl ur, as you Can ship it stfely to any clime under tbe sun and successfully compete with any flour made in the world. .. If so. the occasion we celebrate is the small beginning of the grandest era in the history of the vast empire and re sources of the State of Texas. People told us before we commenced that we would fail t ) make good flour from Texas wheat; that it was nonsense to undertake to make flour from Nioiragua wheat. Xou nave the- result .-of both berore yon, and leave yon to judge of tbe success. They also t Jld us that tbe Colorado river could not be sue ceasfully dammed. Our effort in this direction ia before you, and will ssy this is only temporary. We contend there is no computing the water power of this river, it properly handled that will create an era in tbe maou lactunnx interests of untold millions in the midst of the greatest cotton and wool growing countries of the world. I cannot close these few remarks without referring to tbe vaat importance and bearing of the future ot Texas; we re ler to toe railroad interest ; there is much depending upon this for the de velopment of this productive Isnd. A liberal policy in the future as in the past t all ett uprising parties wishing to emigrate will do more perhaps to luce parties here, than all other sources combined, aad have aa Inflow ence to treble tie business of the roads and will pay both roads here, if they ill meet us bslf way, which doubt less tbey will. Ws premise them the present Is only tbe beginning of enterprises heretofore unknown in this part of Texas. And to the citizens of Austin and vicinity we tender them heart felt thanks for their kindness, and tbe interest taken in our new enterprise, and will say that in the future, aa in the past, we hope to make our auy still more pleasant and it t treating, -aa now our interest is your interest, and hope together in action we may induce other much needed manufacturing establishments to be located ia oar midst, aad as we journey oa -ia life, that each and all will feel themselves constitute! a committee of one to dd everything possible to he'p develop this blessed land of Texas. This done, and our miaoi ia complete, and bid God speed in tie laudable pursuit of life, and here bid you adieu , t Mr. Chambers s Speech was fett I with great applause - - f otiter srevrnts ' were made by Mr. Siryork.

An English sulhority says a hundred British farmers are forced into bank ruptcy every week, by tbe importation of American meats and grains. The pea is the most nutritive of the legnminont crops, and its wholesome ness aa an article of food is attested by ita great use in Scotland the country of great men, and able-bodied -.labor ers. .

The average yield nt wheat per acre is 5 1-3 bushels in Rassia, 12 in tbe United States, 12 1-2 in Austria, 10 1 2 ia Franca, and 29 I 2 in Great Britain. Ia the United States the average yield might easily be doubled, but tbe cheap ess of the lend, the use of machinery, and the coat of fertilizers, makes it cheaper to cultivate la'ger areas ratht r tnan to work for large averages. - 'Attention' to tittle things about the farm, as in any other business, is what increases tbe pro tit a. ilei ty of egg'. a lew caickena, a few calves, a colt or two help out wonderfully.

Th m!- nority report cf tue II use Judiciary Comm'ttee t -day report on the presidential veto of the legislative bill in opposition to the msj -rity rt'p rt recently submitted by P.-octor Knott, and previously telcgmpbed. Tue mi nority di-cuim any intention of saying that .tbey approve of the in- terferancs with the o ate'a elections, but tbey hold that Federal supervision is uecet-s-iry at congressional elec tioos, and charge the msj rity with ignoring that point- and basing their report upon the false assumption that the President advocates the use of Federal authority to supervise the State elections. I iterference was necessary during the war, and MrLdlaa is quoted under date of October, 1361, when be called for troops to preserve peace at the polU in Maryland, to show that the ue of the army has not been a partisan measure, but a safeguard in certain circumstances. It was such orders as the o-e referred to which secured the enactment of the law of 1803, which the minority do not believe had been violated, and they call tttmtion to the fact thtt no such iustance is cited in the msj irily report. Cjnsiderable space is devoted to the discussion ef the monstrous frsmds perpetrated in New York in 1813. and a vigorous plea is made for tie retention of supervisors. The re- porr, which is signed by Messrs. Tap-ham, Robinson, McKinney, , Willets aud Williams, concludes by concurring iu the views contained in the Prest dent's veto of tbe legislative and judicial appropriation bill, and is largely devoted throughout to the criticism of the majority report, which is characterized at marked by assumptions, to support which no proof or corroborative evidence has been brought. New Orleans, Jane 20. The con vention adopted article ti, introduced by tbe committee on taxation, proyid- ng that tbe State tax on property for all purposes whatsoever shall not ex ceed five mills. There was a lively and somewhat stormy debate on this point. Tbe opposition claimed it was evident that with a tax of only five mills on the dollar the revenues would not be sufficient to carry on the gov ernment and pay the inteiest on the debt ; its adoption would be repudiation of the debt. It was claimed on tbe other side that a five mills tax would produce a sufficient revenue to support the S.ate government and pay two per cent, interest on the present debt, or four per cent, it the debt should be scaled at fifty per cent. Tbe vote on the adoption of five ocills was S3 yeas to 23 nays. Prominent mem bers of the convention urged delay on this measure until the committee on the State debt shoulJ again report! It as claimed that tbe vote fixing tbe State tax would in effect settle the debt question. The members of the minority of the committee on .he State debt were among those voting against limiting tbe tax to five mills. Tbe city tax nttAwas alao fixed not to exceed ten mil? on tbe dollar. The mi nority protested, urging delay until the committee 6n city affairs should report. Notices of motions to reconsider were given, but the indications are that the action of to day will be sustained. London, IJuoe 29.

The present bill neither revokes this popular right nor 'relieves the morshal of tbe duty imposed . by law, nor tbe President of Ills duty to see that th s law is faithfully executed. He declines to ditciiis again the wisdom and necessity of election laws, or what ho regards ai a dangerous and uuconstitu tional principle of this bill, that the power vested in Cingrets to ongicatft appropriation bills involves the right to compel tho ExecuMve to mprove any legislation which Congress may see fit to attach to such bills under penalty of refusing tie means needed to carry on the essential functions of the government. II is views on these points were, he ssys, presented in pr virtu messages, and he regards them as conc'u-sive; as to his duty in resp -ct to the' present bill. This measure leaves the powers and duties of supervisors of elections untouched, but deprives tbe national government oi the power to protect them in the discharge of their duties at the polls. States may employ both t ie civil and military power at elections, but by this bill even civil authority to protect congressional elections is denied to the United States. There are two lawful ways to overturn legislative enactment; one is their repeal and the other is the decision of a competent tribuntl again it . their validity. Tbe effect of this bill ia to depnve the executive department of the governmsnt of means to execute laws which are "not repealed, which have not been declared in valed, and it is therefore the duly of the executive, of every other department of the government to obey aud enforce.- Htf closes by saying that be is willing to concur in suitable amendments for -the improvement of the election laws but cannot consent to their repeal or approve legislation which seeks to prevent their enforcement.

I waive a discussion of tbe bad policy of mixing tbe sexes in such schools. My opposition is based on a more vital defect. No provision has yet been male or proposed to estaoli'h a normal school at which white lemales may be btarded and educated at tbe expense of the St ite. Until this is done never will I vote one dollar to a school which in its privileges discriminates so directly sgalost my own race. Sir, I am a friend of popular education, but always witiin t ie limits which will not involve an increase of the State debt. I rccogn:zi 1 ur duty to aid the unfortunate colored race, but never to the prtiadice or exclusion of our own. We are told that the law creating the nornil schools for white children does not eicluie females: U.t, air, tt studiously avoids any express permission for their admission and fixes tdx'ecn years m the minimum age of the si intents to be admitted. This practically excludes f- malestudents. What I complain of is, that an express prov.sion of the law exists on the statute Ik k to board and educate colored girls at the expense of the State, while no such express privilege is accorded whito pirls. Whai ! Has it come to this that in our 7.

If I am told tint the law does u it in cxprtsi teruu x-c u le a white tirl from a normal school when fciio may be educated f r a tenc'ner, I h.'hui miswer that even if tlm hur of sixtien did not preclude a uiixin;' of llpt seres h. tint ssuie school, we tdiould reiu inHcr that theie are many other laws winch do not exclu 1c fouiah s from public, licne-fits which the stronger sex ii'j iyt and still they are excluded. Tm re is no law to exclude a' female from a clerkship in ono of i ur State public, depart-raenta and yet their exclusion fro.n work there, which they cm do quite as well as men, is pi rfect and complete. Colored girls are to tf admitted to your notmal t-chools to be fei aud taught by the State by express provision. Mike a like ( xpr ss provision for wh.t.s girls before you vote further aid to that enterprise. M-mv n poor white widow, who c husband nil in defenre of this country, would orly be too glad to rend her daughter where tic State would educate and prepare her for the work of teaching, in which sh could earn her support. It. would be a grand and noble act if the State would, do this thing for tie white girls of this country. How many an orphan would escapo a life of shame, if she could receive, at a normal school for white girls, tie benefits which this appropriation is intended to confer on colored gtrh? ' But I have still another objection: The bill chancier the normal school law provides that the State ho-ird of education shall have control of this colored normal. ecI.o .1. That board consists of the Governor, Comptroller and Secretary of State. The law ss passed originally placed the achool under the supervision of the board of directors; of the Agritultural College. Now, the Governor, Comptroller and Secretary of Sttt bave their official duties to perform, which n quire their labor every day in the year, if they do their duty. So we would h-ve pei-hapi forty or fifty colored youths, over sixteen yeara old, and alike rmra'ocr of females over sixteen, tu lodged, fed and naught st the same sch jol, mere than one hundred and fifty miles from the capital, with no State tupciviBiou oyer tbeir conduct except such as the Gov ernorand other State ( Oilers here could give. I fear, sir, that tbe experiment of thus mixing the sexes st that age is not likely to prove beneficial to the improvemei t of the race you are try ing to help. I will vote again -it this bill, even though I yote solitary and alone. n " ' fodSer Craps. The PralrU Farmer, considering the dry season and tbe probable short ness of crops in the Northwest, adv m.i farmers to plant fodder crops, telling farmers that they have plenty of time even in ine rtortnwest to maice gooa ones. In Texas there is ample time to do so and agriculturist, should at once prepare for ucb a purpose, bjwed corn, German millet, and so;-gbo cane sowed very thick may te ued and no time should be lott in sowing, titice the sooner it is done the warmer wealhet will it have to be cur (I in. Sow not less than one bushel of millet for bay Farmers' usually sow too little seed, The const qnence is the bay is coarse snd the stock refuse to cat it e'ean.

Ia sawing mllei, do net cover the seed deeply. - Harrow the soil extirsly smooth aad level before sowing, aod cover seed by passing a smoother or plank drag ovar tbe seed. 1 ins win cover tbe seed sufficiently, and at tie same time crtuh clods. Press the earth firmly to the seed, and lesve the soil entirely smooth for tbe mower.

It costs more to husk from the 1. vk thanfrom the stalk, but with a : r-hay crop, it ia one of the most ar tilsbl j means t the Western farmer. Fa: tier eait, where hay always brings a - good price, shocking is an almost uatv-rsl practice. If tbe corn ia heavy, it rur be cut high, and thus save a W: j amount cf lugging. ' A good hand cut and shock aa acre a day; acd h. sere of ood com fodder will cc:r!y winter a steer. Aa acre is fully tq'iat to a ton of the best meadow hay.

' 1 . :' a Tbe rulse Itladalo Mpeak At the last meeting of the R ijal S ciely, Dr. Richardson demonstrated tho ai tt.n of a new invention of his tw ., which he calls the spygmophone,. au 1 by which he transudates the movi rncn s of the arterial pulso la to loud teUphot.- , ic sounds. In this apparatus the nt die of a Pond's spygmograph is mat n to traverse a metal carbon. plate whit U isconuected with the zinc pole'of I.t- ' clunclu; cell. To tbe metal stent of the Bpygmoi;raph ia then tttached non rmiiial of the telephone, the oth -r riuinal of tie telepcone' bein co.t- ntctcd wit h the opposite pole of . tho battery. Wheu tho whole is ready, t'u spygmograph is brought 'i- - in to use a4 if a tracing wore about to bj t.iken, and when tho pulsation of tho nfio.Uo from the pulse strokes is see or- el, the needle, which previously wa held back, is thrown over, o-b-Cj mnke iti po'u.t just touch tho metal or , carbon plate, and to travsrso the platn f to aud fro with each pulsation. In s'- moving, three sounds, one long and two short, are given from tho tele- . phone, which sounds correspond with the first, second and third events of Bpygmographtc reading. Ia fact, tho pulse talks tele phonically, and so loudly that when two cells are used thu sounds can be heard by an sudienco id-several hundred people. By extending the telephone wires the sound ctn also be conveyed long distances, . that a physician in bis consulting rooin might listen to the heart or iasasaaaaoaWar patient lying in bed (qiuanlfcyfu'il!' f ly as to distance) a mile or two bwhj. Dr. Richardson described to the IM-' lows of the Royal Soeiety that, fit sounds yielded by the natural pulse resemble tie two words "bother it." Not a bad commencement for a tt'kn pulse.
