Should one individual, recently arrived in Texas from Georgia, or other Sonthem States, attempt to answer in detail all letters of inqui ry received, bo wonid soon need tho services of il'riciUt hecre'.ary; and as the writer does not wish to employ each assistance, and at the same nine is willing to give all information in his lower in relation to Toxas matters generally, he asks the privilege of becoming “Texas cor respondent" for one issne, of the most central, and perhsps largest circulated paper in Geor- ,na, for the purpose of communicating with his numerous Georgia friends, and all others inter red in Tex»s items. To *11 who contemplate emigrating West, a description of Texas, as to climate, soil, politi cal standing, society, schools and ebarohes, railroads in operation and projected, internal improvements of all kinds, population, and its proportion of black to white labor, stock-rais ing, etc., and t he route to be taken, is, in a pe culiar manner, interesting. Therefore, I take np the aliove subjects, in the order in whioh they are named, and briefly remark upon them —quoting from the “Texas Almanac and Emi grant's Guide,” (a valuable book of informa tion, although called “Almanac,” which can be obtained trom the publishers in Galve-ton, or A. King, of Linden, Texas, and drawing from knualedge obtained since my arrival. CLIMATE. Taking into consideration the vast area com prised within the boundaries of this mammoth Mato, the climate is the most pleasant, and as conducive to man’s welfare, in aiding him to prodnee almost every known vegetable, as the world cau exhibit. It has all the peculiarities of I he climato of Georgia, with many added of its own, that Georgia does not possess. While llui coast counties bawe the refreshing sea breeze to make tbeir temperature as refreshing m that of Chatham county, Ga , the northeast ern and western counties, from some cause, have cooler snmmers and less severe winters linn North Georgia. The traits of climate, if such they can l>e called, that differ from those of Georgia, are the “ northers ”—a species of storm occurring in winter, which sometimes reduces a pleasant temperature down to freez ing and below, in from twenty minutes to an hour; and the dry, pnre atmosphere of the western prairies, or plains—a feature alike be longing to all Dur western plains—and, to a ►mall degree, the wet and dry seasons, that are so well known to some of onr gallant Georgians who have resided in Brazil and Spanish Hon duras since the war. Haring extended the remarks under this bead already further than the importance of the subject demanded, I give a brief statement of temperature of Navarro county for five years, taken at annrise, the mean fur each month and for the year, and proceed with my next sub let of "soil. ” January, monthly mean temperature, 30 deg. Fair.: February, 49 deg.; March, 51 deg.; April, 51 deg.; May, 68 deg.; June, 74 deg.; July, 77 deg.; Angnst, 7G deg.; September, G5 deg.; October, (10 deg.; November, 51 deg.; December, 45 deg. Annual mean temporature, ' T deg. As this connty is on parallel 32 deg. north latitude, and near the geographical centor of the State on a lino running north and south, >'■* temperature msy be taken, with only a few degrees of variation, as applying to a very large portion of the State. SOIL. Ontsido of an elaborate geological description and a chemical analysis of soils in various parts of the State, perhaps a list of agricultural pro duct* grown and the yield per acre would be the most satisfactory account of tho soil. I therefore state that all the counties in Texas, ucept those devoted to stock-raising in the ex treme West, are capable of producing nearly all ■he agricultural products of the Union. The entities in tho different sub-divisions of the jjate, such as Northern, Northeastern, Eastern, Middle. Western, Southwestern, and North western Texas; differ as regards their adapta tion to different products, and in the amonnt of their yield, owing chiefly to difference of cli mate, but also partly to difference of soiL Corn is a universal product, and is raised even by the stock-men of the far West to supply their own wants. Potatoes and a great variety of vegeta- ■>les are raised all over the State, though some wunties produce much larger orops than others, barley, oats, and rye are grown suooessfully in probably two-thirds of tho counties, while wheat doe* not succeed well, except in the northern counties, embracing about one-tbird of the ag ricultural portion of the State. Sugar cane is not profitably grown, except in the alluvial or bottom lands, and hence, nearly nil our larger sugar plantations are found in the rich alluvial *°»»hes near the coast, between Oyster Creek and the Brazos on the east, and the Colorado on tne west Bat this crop is now being extended up tuo alluvial valleys of the Trinity and many oilier rivers, and promises to become a profita ble and staple product in a larger number of r* "ver counties to the distance of one or two hundred miles from the coast Sorghum seems i° be adapted to nearly all our varieties of soil and climate; but it is grown almost exclusively tor home consumption, and tho fine syrup made ■rom it is extensively nsed ms a substitute for ^Sar by farmers who are distant from market tobacco is a common prodnet of many, and per haps most of our counties; but there are com paratively few who raise it, for want of a con tinent market Before the war, it was one of exports (rom Sabine Pass; and when once F^at problem of labor can be solved, for »nt of which hundreds of thousands of acres I TM°j r * 1,rmer8 ’ rich fields are now uncnlti- iv, 1 .

O FFICE HOURS, FROM 8 a. si. to C p. ai. feb3-tf The average yield per acre for all crops gTOwn in the State cannot be, as yet, accurately obtained; but for the leading crops, such as cotton, com, wheat, oats, rye, potatoes, etc., the yield per acre is about one-third more than can be obtained from Georgia soil, aided as it is by fertilizers (we never think of applying man- factured fertilizers here), or, say, for the whole State: from twenty to forty bnshels of corn and from a half to a bale and a half of cotton) per acre. A few more brief remarks, coming under this head, and I close. The ramie plant is cultivated to a limited extent, by way of experiment. Broom com and the castor bean are receiving increased attention. The gronnd-poa or “goo- - . her” is easily raised everywhere in the State, rehef is always anxiously soug , Hemp has been tried sufficient to prove that our ” soil and climate are well adapted to it. Rice, though not a common product, is raised in tho eastern counties. Fish in great abundance are found in all the rivers and along the sea coast Our freshwater fish are principally the bass, trout perch, cat and buffalo; and the saltwater the redfish, trout, whitefish, oroaker, sheephead, flounder, cat and drumfish. The finest oysters abound on the whole coast, with crabs, sea tur tles, etc. The valuable timbered region of Texas is chiefly confined to some twelve or fif teen counties of Eastern Texas, pine and cyf press being the chief timbers and the most val uable ; bnt all of onr settled counties have more or less timber, and generally enough for fuel and fencing, bnt for bnildiDg purposes the tim ber of tho western counties is not generally suitable. Steam saw-mills are found in all the counties where the timber can bo nsed for building. POLITICS. Tho State, like Georgia, South Carolina and other Sonthem States is yet under misrule, and to such an extent that in many of the coun ties negroes, with scarcely more knowledge of jurisprudence Ilian a cow, wero chosen, sworn and sat as jurors along with white men, at the last term of the District Courts, (the same as our Superior Courts in Georgia.) The present incumbent of the State “White Honse,” E. J. Davis, is a full-blooded Radical, and peer to “Rufus B.” of Georgia—though. 6o far, tho State Treasurer, Goo. W. Honey, and himself buve not come so prominently before the people in regard to tho State’s money. I Negroes are seen in some of onr cities as po- lioe—this is a shame on the cities; as I pre sume the State does not appoint police for the cities. SOCIETY. The society of Texas, being made up of na tive Texans, with emigrants from all parts of the globe, nearly, is of course mixed, and of all descriptions from the illiterate and nneontb, to the highly educated and refined; but with all there is a quiet, law- abiding demeanor that makes both life and property as secure in the settled counties, as in the older States. SCHOOLS AND CHURCHES. In i.he larger cities of the State nearly all de nominations are represented, and have suitable places of worship; while through the more thinly settled country, nearly every neighbor hood has a church, (generally Baptist or Metho dist,) and a common school, and at nearly every county seat there are two or more churches and generally a good school. RAILROADS IN OPERATION AND PROJECTED. I now come to the greatest need of Texas—a a system of railroads, like that in the State of Illi nois, ramifying her every county, to supersede the miserable common roads, and take to mar ket her abundant crops. Texas greatly needs railroads in all directions, and her people, aided to some extent by Northern capitalists, are ac tively engaged in building many. The South ern Trans-Continental—International Railroad —Sonthem Pacific Railroad—Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad—Houston and Texas Cen tral Railroad—Gulf, Western Texas and Pacific Railroad—Texas and New Orleans Railroad, are the roads built, now under construction or projected, in this State, and running, or to run in it from other States. Of these Roads, the “Southern Pacific” is now finished from Shreveport, on Red River, to Longview, Upshur county, Texas, a distance of sixty-six miles, and is still being, extended westward; the “Missouri, Kansas, ard Texas Railway,” to be a system of railroads extending into and entirely through the State, has the Neosho Valley Road” line completed from Junc tion City, Kansas, to Ohetopa (State line,) a distance of one hundred and eighty-two miles; tho “Houston and Texas Central Railway” Company was chartered in 1847, and eighty miles of road bnilt to Milliean before 1861. Since the war the extension of the road from Milliean has been slowly but steadily progress ing, and is now completed from Houston to Groesbeck, on the main line, a distance of one hundred and seventy miles; while on the Aus tin and Western branch it has boon extended to Ledbetter, a distance of fifty miles, thus making a total of ono hundred and seventeen miles completed during a period of three years; the “Gulf, Western Texas and Pacifio Railway” will be the “San Antonio and Mexican Gulf,” and the “Indianola Railroad” consolidated; and it is expected that thirty miles of road, beyond Viotoria, will be constructed next year; the “Texas and New Orleans Railway” charter was passed September, 18GG. Before the war, the road was finished and in operation one hundred and eight miles—from Houston to Orsnge, on the Sabine. The road “went down” and was mnch injured during the war. It passed into the hands of a receiver, nnder whose adminis tration it has been rebuilt, and is now in opera tion from Honston to West Liberty, thirty-five miles. In addition to the railroads in operation there are regular stage lines to all points of any importance in the State. INTERNAL IMPROVEMENTS. Having extended remarks on “ railroads” to such length, I merely state that the people of Texas seem to be animated by the “ spirit of the age,” and are building factories of various kinds and making many improvements, that for want of space cannot be mentioned. POPULATION. The tide of emigration constantly pouring West, makes census taking but an uncertain manner of estimating the number of inhabit ants in this State; but from the best data at hand, the lowest estimate of the number of people making Texas a home, is 852,500 and about one-third of this number, or 284,166 2-3, are negroes; and as there are one hundred and fifty-seven counties in the States, this gives an average of 5,429 as the population of each county. LABOR QUESTION. The labor on the farms of this State is prin cipally white; the farmers and their sons, and frequently daughters, being compelled, even if they were not inclined, to take the place of the freedman—the latter generally cultivating in miserable style leased farms and “patches” for their own benefit. The greatest need of Texas as a State is railroads—the greatest wants of the people, labor and then pure or Democratic pol itics. STOCK RAISING. A chapter could be devoted to this subject, but space will not allow. I merely name the best stock or grazing counties and a few of the “cattle kingsThrockmorton, Stevens, Jack, Young, Callahan, Coleman, Brown, Tarrant, Ellratb, Comanche, Palo Pinto, Hill and John son. Richard King owns 65,000 head of cattle, 20,000 horses, 7,000 sheep and 8,000 goats. O’Connor, near Goliad, owns 40,000 head. Mr. Robideanx. between the Rio Grande and Nueces, owns 30,000 head of cattle, besides immense numbers of horses, sheep, goats, etc. As to the route to be taken, etc., I will not require any further space.
