There was a distribution of public property in Austin last week on first principles; all the plunder belonging to the Confederate and State governments was divided out. Among the rest were 50,000 pairs of cotton cards, any quantity of quinine, satinet, domestics, etc. The value of cotton cards in that region now is from one to three bits a pair. And other articles in proportion.—Houston Telegraph.
