The All re re uj3 Are requested to Call attention to posters notion to soldiers soldiers families in indigent circumstance who Valre support from the state or the county Are Quested to Home to the chief just be of one of tie a Tauly commissioners and make their application without delay.

He openly mentioned Hsy readied us w Hill to there is not much of importance developed we Are atm Feii that he information heretofore conveyed to you is in the main. Correct. The enemy hive at f  we Horri a Aldrin not less than Nin thou men. Three regiments of who h two Are Blank compose the Force at Caluris. To Elve org lorents Are St Pond arhorn and old . Of these the time of service of two Massachusetts or gift Ftp is about to expire. Discontent prevails in their ranks it is thought they will not relist. Posmer Ino sail Vasels continue to arrive. A Large Steamer and a Large Schooner Are lying in deep water opposite Powderhorn Aud Are being lightened of their freight by a Small Steamer. They Are increasing their cavalry Force. Yesterday not less than three Hundred mounted men were drilling on the Beach in of the town Minoh artillery practice during the Day. The drams never ceased heir Din from morning till night. Two regiments marched from l Powderhorn to the old town the larger Cumber of troops Are at the latter place. In the Scarcity of fuel they have taken Down and burned Many vacant Homes in the two towns an i it is supposed in the absence of drinking water they have been compelled to transport that very necessary article from the Mississippi River. As the destination of this corps no opinion can be formed or expected in the absence of their transportation. Tip to the present tints we have no reason to believe that they have landed any wagons at powder Horn. If they do so the fact together with the Eer Walnty that they have on hand a considerable Oura Ber of Cannon will satisfy me that they intend to make for the by the Western route. More anon. Wist. Lavaca january 24th, 18 3-t. Or. Riutor it is evident now that the enemy Are concentrating a considerable Force at Indianola. By the prisoners taken by capt. Kelly a few Days ago we were informed that they had three brigades there and Twenty pieces of Cannon. They Are is command of Gen. Benton. For several Days past there has been quite a stir at the wharf by the arrival and departure of three or four steamers per Day. Several of these Are Large and have not been in our Bay before. Quick dispatch is Given to them. It was at first supposed that they were taking troops to the Peninsula but the observations of a Friend of mine from a favourable location in their Vicinity with Aid of a Good Glass leaves no doubt of their operations and intentions. They will invade by our Interior As Well As yours. With four regiments of eight Hundred each to a brigade the estimate of the prisoners their Force at Indianola amounted before the late arrivals to about nine thousand. These arrivals have no doubt much increased this Force. We have Many flying rumours but none that we May credit. The cite Ansof Victoria in compliment to the gallantry of capt. Kelly have presented him with a splendid Charger. His horse having been used up in tie Chase of the Yankees. A kit. Nac r to Amend the i 3.1 and 7th a Estloa of and a.

There were some rumours brewing at Eagle pass yesterday and in consequence capt. Giddings moved from this place in that direction with a company rained by him under authority to fro Teet his Cotton Wagoun. A Lucky dog Ain t lie ? presume it will turn out As Rumora generally do.

This is Gratifying and shown we think that our negroes understand the Yankee character too Well to put themselves in their Power. They have heard How their generals make breastworks of them by putting them always in the of the a. Herald. The Atlanta Appeal says that the spirit of True patriotism Burns brighter in West Tennessee than Ever before. There is no Union or recons Luction sentiment to be found among the people. Maximilian. The Augsburg Gazette has stated that the Arch Duke Maximilian would resign the office of High Admiral of Austria at the close of the year just past and would proceed to Mexico at As Early a Date As possible in the present year so us my expert our new neighbor in a Short time. The Louisville journal invokes free masonry to put an end to the War. The War Aii Only be stopped when the North comes to the conclusion to acknowledge our Independence and let us alone. The Savannah Republican mentions a novel Way that has recently been discovered to smuggle whisky. There is a woman who sports gotta Petcha ref its filled not with Lac Teal j a ices but old Bourbon of the Best Quality and greatest age. What a Jolly old wet nude be would make for the boys up at " the take the trial of a woman in England for biting off a Man s nose the Fornum of the jury decided that if a Man attempted to kiss a woman against her will she had a right to Ite eff his nose if she had a fancy for so doing. The Augusta constitutionalism says we have suffered nothing yet compared with what our fathers suffered in the first War for Independence. Then we had the Savage Indian at our backs the lories Over our own Hearthstone and a fair and open enemy in our . Augusta Savannah Charleston Camden and nicety six were Ali then British posts and Georgia and 8outh Carolina wore occupied almost entirely for three Long dreary years. Yet a heroic ancestry Rose from our valleys and descended from our Hills trusting in god and resolved to perish rather than survive As Pilavis and they drove our conquerors from the soil and so can we even should our land be overran i y vandals. If we Are not a Bastard race our Freedom is our own even if every male has to sleep on his Bright sword and every female Wear at Ber Side a gleaming Dagger. It is a great mistake to suppose that Thia War is to be settled by Long Range Cannon or heavy Shell. Even if our for Tinca inns fall and our towns Are taken it will come at last to close quarters with the Batto axe and Bowis knife and Flint under the Black Flag in every Glen and swamp. Tho watchword then shall a War to the knife and the knife to tie Chan i of Cost Cisa with Calico at ten dollars a Yard some of the fair sex appear to think that they can economize their Means by dressing in male attire.
