The Victoria Advocate is very justly scoring the citizens of that town for permitting their cemetery to go to decay, and the cattle to roam unmolested on the resting place of the dead, breaking down the fences and tombstones, and otherwise desecrating the place.  We hope he has no allusion to this city—it might hurt the feelings of the – dead—the living wouldn’t care much about it.
