HON. Favu. Kim/ Sir M.v
former letter in the Reporter has brought
rue o malty Utter* ol inquiry concerning
Texa- and the opportunities offerer! there
in, ami the inquiries are so similar in im
port. that I :>m induced to nsk the favor
of your columns tor the purpose of n gen
eral reply.
Nearly all inquire about "opening- to:
each one- particular vocation*, and thi
quetlion i- truthfully and fully answered
by sax ing thai there arc no "opening-" in
Texas -no "openings' for Lawyer*, none
for pn,-t, inone for Teachers, none f>r
Dentist*, none for farmers There i- sim
ply a grand Held into which all can eon e
and make their own openings, and for ac-
live, energetic, bone-t men and women it
iadifiicult to Conceive of better opportuni
lie* tor accumulating the necearic and
comfort* of life, by a few year* of pati.n 1
industry that are presented between the
Sabine and the Kio Grande. And there u
plenty of r. >tn. If the entire population
of the United Stat. •- wat trantlVred to
Tex- it would net then be a- denselv
populated a- France or -ev-ral of the tier
man S:*te> A learned ud ascpariatMad
citiaen of the State in whoe company 1
was recently riding oxei our praries, re
marked, "If the entire population of
Pennsylx .ma could be poured out into
Texn- how it would make thi* famed land
bl like the rv-e ' ' I replied. Perhaps
there > a large portion of that population
which might not be - vdoirable hare- the
mining population "Ah," said he,
' \Yc w . have plenty of work for them.
There arc minerals enough in T xa* to
employ them all, and we would be witling
to take them ju>t a- they come. The
reputation of Pennsylvania farmer- ha<

it no class of people who would be more
cordially welcomed, anil those who have
children to provide t".r could nvn make
tl.vtU all comfortable if they would come
and secure the-e rich land- while they are
cheap. The chance- that Illinois, lowa
and other North-Western States present

set.ied in Texas, wilh thi* difference, Tex

Of thi- State to culliv te and pursue the

S.J. Adam* n-rmerly Attorney Genera'
of Ttnne-stc, went to Comanche County,
hetw ten the Bras s and Colorado river*,
and located in the practice of lew, about
one year ago. I met him in l>a!!a* a few
days ago. lie says ho never know ola
new country to settle up -o rapidly and
with so good a class of people as that part
of this State is now doing. Over one
thousand people have settled in Comanche
county since he went there. As an illus
tration of the mafiuer in which the ri ;K:
•!<'<>{ of men can make openings here, a lit
tle if the experience of my afore.aid friend
Major Adams wi.l not be in-appropos
Through soi..e financial disappointment
(and ibis he told me himself* he found
himself iu Comanche, a stranger, without a
UOllar. He entered the bct hotel, met the
landlord and asked him, "Do you keep
this hotel, sir " "Well, I try to.' ' Vk ell
sir, I have come to your town to s ay ai.J
practice law. ar.d I haint got a cent "All
right, sir, 1 11 treat you as well as if you
had n million." A good room was as-
signed the pi*j i r, he ato hi* sup|>er and
rested until li. Next morning
he requested the lanulord to a*ci*t him in i
securing an office. The two gentlemen j
called 01. a Physician of tho place who i
owned the only dasirable office in iht
place. After an introduction lht> Major -
proceeded lo buiiie-r by n.king tho L) >c-:
tor what rent he asked for that roomT|
"Five dollars a month, sir." When do (
you expect your money sir ' "At the end j
of the month." "Well, I think it extreme
ly doubtful about your getting it from me
at that time cry v.>ll, sir, you go
on and take pi' -i "iou of it, ai d pay n<-,
when you can." Court commenced in the
place t.ou after and the Judge a Perm

nious jail birds, ac urtesy always extend

met him in Dallas la-1 week he hud pisniy
of fund*, as attorney for the county has
tho bonds of the county with hiui for
fJO.UJU 11 negotiate f-r the purpoo of
building an- .. Court IF n.e. There are
plenty of such chances, out is
comes to Texas, supposing that he iri go
ing among green houses, h - experience is
very likely to be similar to u person I
hc-ard of recently who expressed hi# d s
gustm thR !ai jrunge, "These Texan* are
the smartest set ol loos* I ever saw."
Lawyers, teachers, prenchurs, jar>..w's,
and everybody must come hero and make
their own openings. They will find a ge
nial and salubrious climate, a kind and
productive soil, and intelligent, gener
ous and hospitable a people to
them as can be found in any country.
in reply to inquiries about Schools, the
following are the fact-. The Statu ha* a
final.*.:*l Common School basis superior to
any other state in Union, but owing to
imp rfect an-1 bungling lcgitalio M J for
want of an efficient an 1 experienced head
the Public School system is not in good
working order. Th-- -cboois arc largely
dependent U|*s private patronage for
success. The advantages >.i nJ'jCation are
highly appreciated and teachers ar well
paid. They make from one to two hun
dred dollars per month. The way to got
a situation i. to be hers, watch whcri n va
cmncy occurs and tko your chance among
other applicant#. While wetting and
watching there is plenly of work to do on
farms so that no one need be idle If
there is an "op- ning" hero for any body It
is forruch a person us Prof. It. M. M dec
who will take hold of the public School
system of the Slate and make it a life
work. Honor and Fume await "the com
ing uian" for tbat groai service. Persons
who arc not prepared to eon.a fci-rs, hut
desire to invest can do so through reliublc
agenl#, who will purchase land certificates
and locate fheui us advantageously us if
the owner were personally present, taking
an undivided third of tbo land* thus secur
ed for services. Great care should Lp ex
areised liowever in the selection of agent-,
us Tcygy bus been nearly as much cursed
with land pjyajes us Pennsylvania. They
are rupidly being driven to the wall how
ever, und by obtaining flip Certificate of
the County clerk or Lund Commissioners
to the reliability of un agent eonfi.l.-nce
may be reposed witii fully ordinary safety.
The Slate arid its counties are Plessed with
honest and efficient officers.
But, I fear I it in trespassing upon your
and will leave the bulancc for
next time.

Washington, February 14. —The
following interesting description id n
burning w <dl > n Pennsylvania lute
I teen received by the Signal Oflice in j
this city from Mr. J. i'ummuijj*, of
Tartnium, one of the voleuler r ob
sh vets of the Signal Service.
On the night of the 2nd of Februa
ry. 187•, I, in company with several
others, paid a visit to the great fins
Well. situated abn'i! nine mil-- from
Tarentum anil Cl'lcen miles aouth ol
Butler, tit a pldcecalled J, anion'* Mill
on the farm of Mr. William Homy,
and owned by a company consisting of
Messre, William Hervey.J S. Yitmle
grifl.and J McAllaelcr. The well
was tnpppij nhont two w.-ek- ago, a- I
learned from one of llio pr.p. iutor in
their search after oil. The* have
gone down a distance of 1,145 feet,
and have just struck the first sand
rock. The well is located in a ho.low
about oOd feet gidp, between abrupt
hills. Our parly came in the vicinity
of the well about 9 o'clock at night,
having seen the vast light floating in
the sky on many a dark night on pre
vious occasions thirteen mile* distant,
but when we came in its immediate in
duciiw am] saw lltp trees pji either
hand lit up, and lltcir trunks and
htattchrs silvered to their tops by this
bun tig torch, the scene was beyond
desc ptinn. On arriving at the
grou.-d we were met by hundreds of
people from all parts of the country
tyho, like our-elpes, flock nightly to
sep this groat wonder. The first thing j
to strike ihc visitor dp arriving is the
great mass <>f flno white flamo of in
tense heat and brightness and the hol
low rumbling noise heard as the oui
rushing gas plunges into the atmos
r phere ami light- all atottml by its im
posing brilliancy. Tho flumes of (his

rim Kev. Newman Hall, in a let

American revivalists. A vast struc

pabl® of holding 10,000 persons, was
tilled. Ssukey sung, and Moody, who
did the s|ieaking, does not seem troin
