      In an article published in the "Texas State Gazette" dated April 2, 1853, a steamboat disaster was described involving two passenger steamships named "Neptune" and "Farmer."  These two ships were engaged in a speed race in Galveston Bay when the boilers on the "Farmer" exploded killing and injuring many people.  An R. Crozier was listed as a passenger on the boat and was slightly injured. E.M. Stackpole was also a passenger in this same boat.  He was remonstrating with the ship's captain to slow down when the boilers blew.  Stackpole was blown into the air and came to consciousness in the water.
      "Galveston Weekly News", in an issue published in 1855 about E.M. Stackpole:
      "We invite the attention of our readers to the card of E.M. Stackpole who now offers his services as Commission Merchant and will do general forwarding and receiving business.  He is favorably known to citizens of Galveston.  During the past two years he has prosecuted a heavy mercantile business extending through several of the upper counties of the Trinity, where he has received the most complimentary notices......"

      Serious Conflagration Occurred in Dallas in July, 1860
      ---------
      Account of the Calamity Taken From an Extra Edition of the Dallas Herald.
      Last Wednesday, July 8, was the forty-third anniversary of the first big fire that ever visited Dallas. The blaze came near destroying the entire city, and was the first serious disaster that befell the early settlers. The following account of the conflagration is taken from a copy of the Dallas Herald extra, printed July 11, 1860, at McKinney, the office of the Herald having been destroyed in the fire:
      On Sunday last, 8th inst., the town of Dallas was nearly all reduced to ashes, and almost wiped out of existence.  Such a calamity has never before befallen this community--so overwhelming a disaster afflicted an enterprising and industrious people; nor, so complete a destruction of valuable property ever occurred in a small town.  The fire originated in some boxes in front of W. W. Peak & Bro.'s drug store, and in less than five minutes, the entire building was enveloped in flames.  The wind was high, blowing from the southwest, and the thermometer at the time (half-past one o'clock) was standing at 105 F., in the shade.  The fire was then communicated to the old drug store, and the building and warehouse of A. Shirek, and the Herald office on the north side of Peak's store, and on the other, to the large brick store of Smith & Murphy, the three-story brick building of Mrs. Cockrell, known as the Dallas hotel.  Thus, at one and the same time, the whole west side of the square was a blazing mass of ruins. The Crutchfield House, Wester's barber shop, the frame of the new building of A. Simon, the old tavern stand, the office of B. W. Stone, young Carr's saddlery shop, the large store house of Herman Hirhs, Darnell's livery stable, A. Simons' store house and warehouse (Caruth's old stand), D. B. Thomas' drug store, W. Brustles' old shop and residence, E. M. Stackpole's store and warehouse, Lynch & Son's saddle shop, Messrs. Caruth & Simon's storehouse and J. C. McCoy's law office, followed. .....
