* The rivers of Texas

On the back page under "Sketches Of Texas...No. II" is a detailed report: "Rivers of Texas--Facilities of Interior Commerce--Prospective Improvements of Rivers and Harbors." The report describes the accessibility of the principal rivers of Texas: the Trinity, Brazos, Colorado, & Rio Grande. Takes about 2/3 of the column (see for portions).
Also on the back page is a detailed and "interesting communication" about the "Native Copper Mines of Lake Superior".
Page 3 has three reports concerning Indians: "Indians In Texas" "Fight With The Indians" "Indian Disturbances In Florida".
Other news and content throughout this issue, but just a few ads.
Four pages, in very good condition.
