Hampton proceeded to say that he
had no intention to embarrass the ad
ministration, and although he consider
ed the provisions of the bills just, he re?
cognized the difficult position in which
the executive found himself. Mr.
Hampton's people remembered that in
a critical period of their history, when
any injudicious action would have been
fatal, the President, by a conscientious
construction of his duty, removed the
United States troops from Louisiana
and South Carolina, thus enabling the
people to restore their local govern-,,
ments to those who represented the pop-,
ular wilr. For this wise, patriotic ac
tion, he was grateful, and while it
would be his duty to oppose the policy
of which the President was the repre
sentative, that opposition should not
be captious, nor such as to drive the
President into a coalition with tnose
who would madly trample on the rights
of the people in their struggle to retain
power. Mr. Hampton said his party
was denounced ror wismng to restrict
the Federal use of troops, but men high
in the Republican party, whose words
he quoted, had also pointed out and de
nounced the danger and abuses of such
use. It was not the immediate action
of the army that he feared, but the ulti

all sections of the country and from
England Some turn to the raising of
cattle, sheep, &c. while others go a lit
tle farther on and try their fortunes in
the mines of .New Mexico.
Cattle are never fed but live off of
grass entirely, roaming from one coun
ty to another. It is often the case that
one man's cattle may be in four coun
ties at ohce, Then herdersl foUow up
the trail and drive them home again.
These herders are known as cow boys,
and they are the roughest set of men I
have ever seen, attributable, I suppose,
to the rough manner in which they live,
A pair of high heel boots, leather
breeches, blue shirt and a wide brim
Mexican hat constitute the dress of the
cow boy. They visit to wn during court
or any other big day in this ' country.
They generally get very much intoxi.
cated and tnust exhibit their horseman,
ship oy riding in the saloon, up steps or
short stairways, and after they nave
become sufficiently tired of that partic
ular place they force the keeper to close
up by shooting the lights out. These
characters, though noisy and trouble
some, are not necessarily dangerous and
I do not think they would willingly in
j ure an innocent man. After they have
caroused around and made an endless
amount of noise, and their ammunition
exhausted, to avoid arrest they hurry
to their respective ranches, and the
town again falls into its old monoton
The population of this county is in
creasing yearly. Only a few years ago
the inhabitants were in constant agita
tion and excitement caused by numer
ous depredations, raids and murders.
At that t!me one knew not when his
head or his property was his own, but
the presence of State rangers to check
such lawlessness and the constant in
crease of settlers have caused a radical
change, until now one feels compara
tively safe. Brackettsville, once a home
and resort for desperadoes, thieves and
murderers, is now a quiet little town,
with a population not exceeding 2,000,
half of which are Mexicans. The town
is built on the Mexican style, with
plazas oy triangle spaces instead, oi
squares. The greatest number of houses
are the ' Adaby, with flat straw roof a

as .a substitute for chimneys, Fires for
cooking purposes and warmth are.built
