Wednesday, January 18th, 1860



This day Sam SHARP returned home from Hall's Bluff and reports the Trinity River in navigable condition. Having put handles in the axes I went to chopping in the clearing. Considering that I have but one hand we are getting along pretty well. No other incidents to day.



LOUISIANA DEMOCRAT [ALEXANDRIA, LA], January 18, 1860, p. 2, c. 1. An Abolitionist Driven from Jefferson, Texas.—The Jefferson Gazette of Jan. 5th, contains the proceedings of a meeting of citizens held that day to remove a fellow named Fory R. Arnold from that place and the State, on account of his avowed abolitionism. The committee of investigations reported him a fit case for expulsion. Another committee was appointed to investigate similar charges against others and the city of Marshall was called upon to nominate a permanent committee of vigilance.
