........The Baltimore & Ohio Telegraph Company announces that it has completed its lines into Texas, and about sixty offices were opened for business yesterday. More offices will be added on its own lines in a few days, and also connections made with other lines in Texas, the Mexican and the Central and the South American-cables. This is the first time in the history of Texas that Texas has a competing telegraph company within its borders. The day rate from Baltimore to the prominent points in Texas will be 75 cents; the night rate one-half the day rate.
