A correspondent of the Fairfield Ledger says a coal mine has been discovered on the place of Mr. Lindley, near Tehuacana, Freestone county, within a stone's throw of the route surveyed by the Texas Central railroad. He says that a specimen found on the surface induced a digging experiment, and that the depth or stratum was found to increase, in a distance of 12 feet, from 2 to 30 feet, which "must argue a very large and, in fact, inexhaustible basin." Mr. A. L. Shaw, a Mineralogist, is to work the mine, and is very sanguine of success.

The Fairfield Ledger of the 4th chronicles fine rains and grand crop prospects in Freestone, Limestone, Navarro, and other counties in that region.
E. A. McCracken says in the Ledger, after reading observations in Austin, that Gov. Davis, although very decidedly devoted to the extreme wing of his party, is honest and impartial - "a man of intelligence and morally unimpeachable." His motto is that there are now but two parties in the State - "the honest and dishonest".

Letter from Freestone Co.
Cotton Gin, July 22, 1870
At one freedmen's Sunday School
celebration there were about seven hundred in attendance.
The examination commenced on the 21st and closed on the night of the 22 inst.
Everything went off in good order.
The second day they commenced with spelling and reading by classes.
Then by speeches and addresses by Mr. A. H. Roberts, white; then by Mr.
Jackson, colored. He talked splendidly to
the scholars. He told them how this
Sunday school had progressed in only seven months; that some of them who
scarcely knew anything, could now get up before the school and read in the third
and fourth readers, or make a good address or speech to them; that they must
push forward and obey their teachers and trustees, and trust in God and build
upon the Bible, and they would be sure to win the prize when they all came to
die. They were in then placed in
charge of the marshal, formed in position, and marched to the dinner table.
All the white men present were invited to take a seat at the table.
After dinner they marched back to the stand. Next in order were speeches from the scholars. After many noble speeches had been made one Judge Lynn, white, asked permission to speak, which was granted. He gave them good advice concerning education and politeness. He said that if they were persevering and diligent they would be able to do better by this time next year; that they had a good start now, and the way to become great in this world was to improve their time in something useful, and not be going to any secret organization.
He was striking at what I call the Chartered Loyal Council, which the scholars did not thank him for. They think that is their business as free men. Next was a speech by Mr. Lockhart, colored, which was very good, and even better than those of the two white men, because he was in earnest about their welfare, while they were just feeling around for the next election, which the colored men were aware of. Then followed speeches from the scholars. Then by dialogues, music and singing, which was done with much pride and joy, both interesting to themselves and all present. The scholars then gave great thanks to God, and praise to their teachers for what they had done and for the great blessings that God had bestowed upon them. This bringing their examination to a close, I was requested to deliver an address to the school before the exercises were closed, being a friend of the school and a Republican. I then addressed them as to their duties as scholars and as a people. You are a free people and the law makes citizens of you all, the same as it does to myself and others; gives you all the rights and privileges of the law; guarantees to you the same protection, and it is as binding upon you as it is upon me, to obey the laws of our country; we must all be law-abiding men and then we shall receive the same protection. God has also given us laws to obey, and the way to learn these things we must first be educated, so that we can read the laws and then we will know how to obey them, and when it comes to elections, we then may know how to vote and who to vote for, and not be cheated out of your votes; and then if some of you were to be elected to some great office you would then know how to contend for your rights as citizens of the United States. You have started in the right way to get that education that we all so much need, and I am truly proud to see the great interest that is taken in the cause of education at this place. I can say this much for your school, that you have done better than I have seen done before anywhere else, considering your chances and the length of time you have been engaged, black or white. The school has only been in progress only about seven months and many of you can read a newspaper and the Bible, can get up and make a good and very sensible speech. Both the large and small scholars have done extremely well.
Parents when you send your children here to Sunday School, on the Lord's day, they are learning something good, and not out playing marvels [marbles] or fishing which God forbids on the Sabbath. If you bring them up in the right way "when they get old they will not depart from it." I think that your teachers are taking a great interest in advancing their scholars, and I think that if you will all push forward, that by this time next year that you will both astonish yourselves and the rebels in this county more than you did this time; they have said that the colored people could not be educated, show them that you can educate yourselves.

Meeting of Republicans at Cotton Gin.
Cotton Gin, Aug. 12, 1870
We are getting along fine in this county. Our Republican club is rapidly increasing in numbers, and we will be able to defeat the Ku-Klux at the next election worse than we did at the last. The colored schools have had a celebration, under the superintendence of Mr. Geo. Jackson. There were a good many white people present, who were astonished at the proficiency of the scholars.
The Republicans had a meeting here last night and adopted the following resolutions, viz:
That we most heartily endorse Gov. Davis in his veto of the Southern Pacific bill.
That our thanks are due to Senator P. W. Hall and Representatives S. Cotton and D. W. Burley and that we look upon them as true to the Republican party and to the State at large.
That a copy of these resolutions be forwarded to Gov. Davis and to the Houston Union.

The Fairfield Ledger says that a colored man named Burt killed another colored man named Jim a few days since in that county.
Fishburn, of the Fairfield Ledger, is low-spirited in view of the printing bill. He writes to his paper very dolefully from Houston, on the subject. Democrats must remember that they have had their day, and a very long one, and they gave no quarter. The tables are turned - that's all.

The Fairfield Ledger, true to the tactics of its kidney, pours out half a column of ridicule and billingsgate upon a citizen of Freestone County, simply because the editor has learned of his belonging to the Republican organization of that county. The gentleman thus assailed by a mendacious and unprincipled paper, is an old citizen of Freestone County, by the name of J. W. Thomas. The Ledger man nor any body else had ever heard of him other than as a good citizen, until he had the manhood to throw off the shackles by which he had been too long bound by just such tyrants as he of the Ledger. Suddenly Mr. Thomas is transformed from a good citizen into a knave and a jack ass, according to the Ledger. Sensible people of Texas, this is the way Democracy seeks to prevent the spread of truth. This is the way it would postpone the era of peace and good will.

quietly in the courthouse yard at the time of melee there! Judge B. was employed by the friends of the prisoners and that is supposed to be the reason for the murderous assault. Judge Baker is known to be one of the most amiable and gentlemanly men in Texas. The transaction in Freestone county where Liety Stokes entrusted an armed criminal to the care of Smalley, and he was killed by the criminal, Hardin, was an ugly piece of business. Stokes pretends that some friend of Hardin must have given him the pistol with which he killed Smalley, while they were travelling on the road. If so, it shows that he guarded his prisoner very carelessly. Gen Davidson now comes before the Legislature with a petition to allow him more men and a fund of nearly half a million dollars to carry on his system of blackmailing. Verily the times are out of joint. - [Navasota Tablet.]

The Fairfield (Freestone county) Ledger learns from different sources that the cotton crop of the State will scarcely be more than half what it was last year. We think that three-fourths of last year's crop will be nearer the truth, provided present prospects are realized. The same paper is probably near the truth in stating that the crop of the other Southern States will be a third less than last year's. The same paper says the crop of corn will be verify abundant, and also that the oak mast promises to be sufficient to fatten the hogs in the woods.

I am a subscriber for your weekly paper and have been for two or three
years. Last year we did not have any
postmaster at this place and we had to get our mail at Fairfield,
so we could look over it, that is for not getting your paper until it was two or
three weeks old, but that cause is now removed.
We have a regular Post office here now, and I am the Assistant
Post-master at this place and attend to the office myself.
We have a mail here three times a week from Groesbeck, Tuesdays,
Thursdays and Saturdays. Your weekly
paper is published on Mondays, and we ought to get it in Thursday’s mail, but in
the place of that, we never got it, until the next week, on Tuesdays or

The delay is somewhere about the head of the railroad or the office where
it connects with the railroad.

International Railroad Stations, Etc. from Our Traveling Agent, D. R
...Here we met the down train from Palestine at 1:10 p.m. Keechi is the next station, distant 66 miles from Hearne, near the town of Butler, in Freestone county; no post-office and no hotel at this place. It derives its name from the Keechi creek, in the neighborhood, named after the Keechi tribe of Indians that infested this country not many years ago. There are about half a dozen houses in the place. Close by we passed Alligator Swamp, a place rendered notorious from the quantity of crocodiles found here. Keechi creek bottom lands are noted for their richness of soil and ash timber. Here there is an inferior station house, a half dozen houses and some good land. Here we passed the large and picturesque prairie commonly known as Uncle Tom's Prairie, being the only one on the entire route. Oakwood is the name of the next station, distant 76 miles from Hearne, and 7 miles from Butler, and takes its name from the quality of wood grown there. This is a delightful place to live on account of the fine breeze that blows continually over Uncle Tom's Prairie. The town consists of half dozen houses and an inferior stationhouse, Mr. Calvert station agent. The land is good in this neighborhood. The location for a town is good.

Letter from Mexia.
Mexia, January 16, 1873
Eds. News: Supposing it will be of interest to the commercial men of the state, to know the amount of cotton in each county, I will state for Limestone and Freestone counties - that there is only a few scattering bales remaining for shipment. The principal part of the cotton from these counties changed hands in our little city of Mexia, at a good average figure, say 13 1/2 to 15 cents. And as it was picked out early without much rain, it was of a better class than ever before. It was common to see from seventy-five to one hundred bales a day on our streets for sale in the months of October and November, and a good portion in December, but now there are not much more than five or eight bales.
The falling off of receipts is becoming very perceptible to our merchants, as it has reduced trade very much. Nevertheless our town is growing daily, more business houses going up, and more business men coming in. As a town this place bids fair to be prosperous. B.
