The indians there no doubt in our minds were advised of the movement of the troops and therefore thought that could make a successful visit to our unprotected Frontier before Texas could organize a Force to oppose them. They came in rear of the Federal troops and committed several outrages murders and thefts but we believe that this they have retired not Linding everything exactly according to their wishes. The citizens and state troops in different portions of our Frontier have pursued them and in every instance where they have been overtaken they have been Defeated and compelled to make theire Stajic leaving behind the horses mares and mules which they had stolen but nevertheless they have murdered a Large number of our frontiersmen. In the mean time in Gratifying to to learn that our excellent commander col.

The following according to the Patterson guardian were among the last Acta of the new Jersey legislature  mement began to get noisy paper balls and Orange Peel were lung about with the usual License accorded to the expiring session in the House. Another symptom of dissolution was seen in the open spoliation of the asks of the members which were bereft of in stands and indeed of every Loose thing. Even the scrap baskets were abstracted some members taking besides to Beer own All the oth ens that they could Lav their bands on leaving the modest minus everything.

Thus the Experiment of building up a new government in the South has succeeded Well its friends had any right to expect. That there have been irregularities and errors even the most Sangine friends of the measure scarcely deny. We can Only regard the movement partaking of the essentials of a revolution but certain a history furnishes no account of another revolution in which individual rights and Public interests have a uttered so Little. The new government lil vet fairly established and much remains to yet much has already been Elf cited the preservation of order the continuance of Law and the Protection of private rights matters of much in Sirvance Del. Nee from foes without. Not one thousandth part of the troubles have liven experienced which Atli idd the colonies in their Progress thus from British Dominion.
