The Colorado river has been very high this week, but is slowly falling....Senator W. H. LEDBETTER is home on a short leave of absence...Weather continues showery and the cotton worm is feared by the farmers...Mr. John W. WHITE, of La Grange, has just bought a thoroughbred Durham bull, Conductor by name, for his rancho on Pin Oak...Mr. A.A. MCCLATCHY, living at Rutersville, lost 20 hogs recently in one night, the principal part of them were fine Berkshire stock. Their death, he thinks, is attributable to the fact that he had not been giving them any corn, and they were feeding upon cuckleburrs that were just coming up out of the ground, as he put the remaining ones in a pen and fed them corn, and no more have died since.....On the 30th day of May last Dr. B. MOORE, of this county, hived a swarm of Italian bees. The stand contained sixteen frames, and on the twenty-third day thereafter he robbed them, and the yield was eight pounds to the frame. The net yield in this brief period was over one hundred pounds of honey.
