TEXAS, formerly an independent republic, was annexed to the United States in DecemIt now constitutes a single state, though its superficial extent is about seveu times as great as that of Pennsylvania. Its constitution is in the main similar to those of the other slaveholding states. For a general and brief notice of the country, climate, &c., see TexAs, in the GazetteeR. A more particular description of the surface and soil will be found under the heads of the respective counties in this Appendix.

It may be proper here to add, that the seacoast of Texas, though indented by numerous bays and inlets, does not afford a single harbour for vessels of a large size. Galveston inlet, the deepest, has 12 feet water, the entrance of Mulagorda Bay 11 feet, and San Luis 10 feet. It may be further observed, that the principal rivers of this country, though of great length, are not navigable to any extent except for small vessels, though much might and doubtless will be effected ere long, towards improving their navigation. The Trinity is navigable farther than any of the others; it may be ascended by boats nearly 300 in. The Brazos is navigable 150 m., the Nueces about 100 m., and the San Jacinto 50 m. The Colorado is obstructed by a rast 10 m. from its mouth: when this is removed, it will in all probability be rendered navigable for small steamboats to Austin, above 200 m. The Sabine r. on the E border, is navigable 150 m. The Rio del Norte, on the w, though a very rapid stream, may (except at low water) be ascended by small steamboats nearly 200 m. The Red R. is also navigable for a considerable extent along the northern border. Texas is divided into 36 counties.* Capital, Austin.
