Vt itli tfiis week our connection with
tha Heiiald ccascn. It ia now seven
years since we issued the first number
of the IIlrald, in which we assured
the then few readers of tho paper that
wa would endeavor faithfully to advc
ata the interests of the town, county
and State, and make a paper that would
contain a full history of passing events.
How well we have fuIGiled that promise
wc leave our friends and the readers of
the paper during the seven years to say.
We have had something to say upon all
subjectii of interest, and have endeavored
to advocate the right, regardless cf per
sonal likes or dislikes. It is with feel
ings of saine;s that we leave the Her
ald, and part company, for the time,
with its many readers. The paper seems
almost liko cur o?rn flesh aud blood,
while ita readers are as the friends of
our youth ; cad it id only that we may
laeor ia a broader fit-Id that ire are at
all willing to part company with them.

improve the paper in many respects.

which we havo always received from the
pc-opls cf this ciy and county, fully be

It is hard for us to say the last fare

ty, the first fourteen year of it3 pro;
longed existence, sounding ia the ear3 of
those eedate, Calvanislic believers in the
Salem witches, liko the musical notes of
a cracked fiddle in a thunder storm.
Since our earliest recollection Ahaz has
been our constant companion, through
all our labyrinthian wanderings, whether
crossing the glaciers of the uorth, the
bounding billows of old ocean, or fol
lowing the Scminoles through the ever
glades cf Florida, night and day; there,
liko a faithful sentinel, stood Ahaz, ever
ready to protect ani shield us from
harm, or lead us into mischief. While
writing, we can almost see the deep set,
snuff colored eyes, which fnap and
sparkle like rcud balls in a frosty morn

lectual brow, which slopes to the rear on
an angle of -15 degrees tho.se tapering
fingers, which always froza to every val
uable object they came in contact with.
Ahaz is very patriots. During tue
"Great Re'ucllion" he urged ail his
neighbors and his wife's relation into the
army in search of glory and liberty.
Ahaz is an illustrious decen J.int of a
noble, defunct house ; he can follow his
lineage from the cra'lle to the grave, and
we expect his name will go down to pos
terity surrounded with a halo-cf glory,
like the setting sun in a rainy uay.

New York, February 2(5 .
A spaeial from Mata moras, February
23, says Gomez Portvgal, the revohnio
naiy governor cd' Agvis Calitnfas, occu
pied the city of that name on the 15ih
instant. Telegrams from before San 1-iou-is
I'otosi, say that Trevina's army is in
creasing rapidly. The state of Chiltua
hua is sending troops to the revolution
ists. A specif from Brownville, Texas
dated the 23d, reports that cattle steal-,
ing on tho Kio (irande. ha vigorously
recommenced, (ireat indianation pre
vails among stock raisers. The collector
of customs at Matamoras, who is al-o a
Spanish civil representative of the Jua
rezist government, announces his inten
tion of sinking an American river steam
er if it clears hence for Camargo, which
is now in possession of tlie revolutionists.
Au international tiiffi.ully is likely to
arise on this question. The command
er at Matamoras would oppose this, but
General Cartina, who is irresponsible.
and who hates Americans, would readily
a-?ent to the sugge-i:on of the collector
general. Barney, American collector
he e, refuses to give clearance papers
until he receives instructions from Wah
jngton. If the vessel eventually clears,
a difficulty is certain. Many merchants
here from the interior are anxious to
send their bonded goods into Mexico,
and are urging a clearance of the vessel
to Camargo as the only practical way.
Matamoras, Februaiy 25.
The reported death of General PonS
rio Diaz, from dysentery, on the 12th in
Etant is confirmed. The followers of Di
az have proclaimed for Lorde Tejado or
Guzman for president. 4, WO govern
ment troops are inside of San Louis Po
tosi. 5.300 men, and 24 pieces of artil
lery are outside. 11,000 revolutionists
are confronting the governuient forces.
Severe fighting has occurred without
decisive result. Both parties .are main
taining their ground.
