The report was that himself and his officers had been shot by the texans.

An English Sloop of War off Tampico on the eve of sailing had been requested by the British v Consul to postpone her departure for a few .

A gentleman of High respectability arrived last evening in this cit3% informs us that Joseph Baker formerly Edify of the Telegraph printed at san Felipe having been sent after the Battle of san Jacinto to the mexican army left the division under command of Felas Ola at the Colorado on the 8th instant. Felisola observed to or. Baker that As general Santa Anna was a prisoner he did not him As Genera of the forces then in the Field but would recognize him As president of the mexican nation and As such he would obey his order to withdraw the troops and would execute it As soon As possible. He said he had no doubt but Congress would acknowledge the Independence of Texas it was a country the mexican people did not want and Altti Ough it had been explored and known to them for one Hundred and fifty years and though a Good country Lor the Agri Cullura list it was not one adapted to the habits of the mexican people there being too Many flies and mus quinoes for the conveniences of raising Slock. Lie acknowledged that the present Campaign in Texas had terminated to the great disgrace of cruel massacre of col. Fannin s division was unjustifiable and would meet with tie just indignation of the civilized world. He further said that the invasion o Texas was alone projected and carried on by the ambition of Santa Anna that had it not been for this Texas would live been admitted a state of the mexican Republic at the time she made the application through her agent Gen. S. F. Austin in 1833, and at this time would have had a local government suited to her wants. He was Well aware he said that the texans were receiving Aid from the citizens of the United states and Itiat they had the sympathies of that nation. The session. The United states House of representatives last week held the longest uninterrupted session Ever before known in the legislation of this country. It commenced on Friday morning at 10 o clock and continued without a moment s intermission until eleven the next morning. Several topics of great interest occupied the intention of the House and some of Vliem were badly and angrily discussed. The Van Buren majority seemed determined to pass the Bills for the admission of Michigan ind Arkansas into the Union no Lens Volens and therefore would listen with complacency to no motions for adjournment. The usual disorder and violence prevailed through a greater part of the night. Or. Wise in advocating an adjournment about three o clock in the morning and in remarking upon the disreputable course pursued by the majority said that the House ought to adjourn because it was then a a sleepy timid and drunk this was prey much of a Home thrust and exhibits the members in a very disgraceful Light. They refused to adjourn however when or. Wise took the floor and spoke until 10 o clock. Questions of order were then discussed until 11, when the committee Rose and referred the Michigan and Arkansas Bills to the House where they still remained at our latest intelligence. In the course of the session the Ohio Boundary question was warmly discussed for the particulars of which we refer the Reader to the letters of our Able and indefatigable correspondent in another . Whig. Outskirts of were occasionally seen to quit the Vicinity of the clearings with their rifles blankets and dogs and entering the forests disappear for awhile in the direction of the mountains. This is Latrobe s account of the first settlement of the West. It has since the commencement of the present Century and within the memory of every Middle aged Man that the Small and silent Stream of emigration has become a mighty torrent sweeping Onward in its current myriads of Hullm to the enjoyment of the fairest of Earth s heritages. Before the Enterprise and stirring life like Energy of this multitude towns and cities arc rising the howling wilderness and wild waving Prairie Are merging in the cultivated Fields of the White settler. While witnessing the teeming population of the West at the present Day it is a difficult to realize that scarcely two thirds of a Century have elapsed since the first settler beheld from the ridges of the alleghenies this fair Domain in All its native wildness with the Indian and beast of the Chase for its Only inhabitants Greenfield Gazette. Gladiatorial shows. Some of our readers May not a flow what gladiators were. It is proper their to say that originally they were slews or criminals trained to fight for the amusement of the people when however the passion for these amusements became violent knights senators and even women engaged in them with the utmost eagerness. The emperor Nero exhibited atone time no fewer than four Hundred senators and six Hundred knights. Gladiators shows were advertised by hand Bills As Many things Are among us. And they Are no mock fight. Every one before he entered on the Arena took an oath that they would fight until death or surf or death in Tlle most exc Rulia Ling torments. It is incredible what numbers of these human beings perished for the amusement of roman ladies Ana gentlemen. The seats nearest to the Arena were reserved for the nobility and Gentry that they might most distinctly see the cuts and thrusts of the combatants and the convulsions of the dying Gladiator the Choice spirits of the Metropolis not Only enjoyed these spectacles but gambled on the combatants and so combined what cannot be done in our country at the theatre or any where else that we know except at the cockpit the pleasure of the combat and the pleasure of the gaming the ladies looked on with intense interest while the fight lasted and while the limbs of the fallen were quivering in death and then turned and laughed with their suiters or Paramour and partook of the refreshments which were furnished by them until another pair of gladiators should be brought out to kill one another for their amusement. The combats of men with Lions tigers and other wild be its were scarcely less to the romans than those we have just mentioned. Nothing perhaps afforded greater Delight than to see a Christian thrown to the Lions. Slavery in Texas. David a Burnett governor of Texas under its new Constitution has issued his proclamation enjoining upon All officers military and naval and All collectors and functionaries of that government to be vigilant my Active in detecting and defeating any attempt to violate the 8th article of the Constitution which provides that the quot importation o r admission of Picans or negroes into that it pm ing from the United Stateff Istat Ever prohibited and declared to be piracy the Constitution however Del hoi it first settlement of the West. A Century ago no while Man had crossed the alleghenies to see what Lay on the outlier Side. In 179i, a Lunatic wandering As Vas his wont during his paroxysms crossed the dividing Ridge beyond the great Valley of Virginia and on his return asserted that he had been upon streams whose Waters the West. No great Public notice seems to have been taken of this discovery yet it is upon record that a Mcconn Eilering party crossing he Mountain in the year 1751, and falling upon the now Green Brier River a tributary of Kanawha found two White men natives of new England living on its Banks though some Hundred Yards Distant from each other. Even in that Distant wilderness human passions and per inanity of opinion had wrought disharmony and there they lived apart from each other nothing passing Between them but the morning salutation As the one came out from the hollow tree which served him fora shelter and the other from his log hut. The virginians subsequently made a settlement there which was utterly Cut off by an incursion of the indians. It was in 1767 when the first adventurer from the Banks of the Yadkin in North Carolina a Man by the name of Finlay came Back to his family after a Lon absence with accounts of the mar Llo i Beauty and riches of the a inc mountains. He subset i thilber the same year with a party if which the celebrated Daniel Boon was one and hmm that time foward adventure it Ipp a among the restless inhabitants of the an incident at Natchez. I was led to reflect that the daring and fool Hardy spirit of Mink Fink had not become extinct among the Boatmen when our Steamer came to for a few hours at Natchez on her Way Down the Mississippi. This City which on the Heights displays a Beautiful appearance is nevertheless More noted on the River Here for the character of the lower own or Natchez under the Hill which the Boatmen make a kind of rendezvous and is the frequent theatre of a Royal Row. At the time of our Stop there Over fifty boats of different descriptions were lying off in the River opposite this place. Close to the wharf upon the Dick of a Broa Horn stood a fellow of powerful muscular appearance and every now and then he would swing around his arms and throw out a Challenge to any one quot who dared to come and take the rust off of him styling himself the quot roared quot and declaring that he had it had a fight in a month and was getting Lazy. The men standing around seemed neither disposed to take much notice of this fellow nor to accept his Challenge and from this i imagined that he was a regular Bruiser and no one cared to oppose him. For some time he continued throwing out his Challenge and inter Landing his speeches with the usual boast of a Western Bruiser that is that he was Hall horse half Alligator half Steamboat and half Calendar of crime. On the 8th May a female of Wooster Ohio Hung herself in her own House. On the 12th May in Holmes county Ohio Samuel Casebeer stabbed to the heart a univ chamberling of the same neighbourhood. The murdered Man had been married but a few hours before his death. Cause not assigned. Casebeer Nineteen years of age. On the 13th May Mary Logan of Tusca of Jim sixteen stole a Fine by tag horse and to tinted the animal bar backed with a Hickory with for a bridle and Rode it off until she succeeded in Selling she was apprehended at her Mother s Resi it Dence and lodged in jail. On the 17th May Michael Keifer Esq. Of Wayne county Ohio committed suicide by shooting himself. On the 24th May in Cincinnati Ohio two men were engaged in fighting in the second Story of a Coulee House when one deliberately threw the other from the window the person thrown out after falling eighteen feet struck on his head on the pavement and was taken up speechless.

In Fairfield county Ohio the body of a lad aged eighteen a Jirs a hol a been missed some two or three weeks was found on the 2 eth May buried in a Corn Field. The owner of the Field had been arrested on the charge of the murder and committed for Examina tion. Springfield Pieer. Cleveland Ohio. The town of Cleveland in Ohio is one of those places which have sprung up in the course of a few years with a rapidity unequal in the history of other countries. We have been reminded of its extraordinary Rise by the receipt of a daily paper which under the title of the. Quot daily Gazette quot has been commenced with a fair Prospect of Success. Cleveland is situated at the termination of the canal leading from Portsmouth on the Ohio River to the lakes and its great Prosperity affords i Contes Tible evidence of the immense advantages which Are to from that species of internal Chron. Wire Bridge. The greatest curiosity perhaps there is in Frey Borough is the suspension Bridge Over a chasm Igo feet in length. The Bridge Over the mania in England under which ships can sail is a wonder a wonder perhaps of the world but it is not greater if so great a wonder As this is Over such a chasm and it is made of wire not a bit of material in it that is not made of wire the covering excepted. My heart leaped out of my Mouth As our Diligence rubbed Over it but although the wires will quiver a Little it is Safe As the Granite column on the Shore on one is never weary of looking at it. It seems As if the fairies had been to work there weaving tiny wires to ply in the air. The latest fashion. It has been adopted by the exclusives of new York that 4 o clock it in the morning be the fashionable hour for performing the marriage ceremony. We heard of a couple in High life who were lately United at this hour and by Day Light were on their Way to the Western country. An Early Start we should say for the Marriageable state and Michigan.

Quot and i m a Snag quot replied the Little one As he pitched into him and before he had time to reflect he was sprawling upon the deck. A general shout of applause burst from the spectators and Many now who before had stood aloof from the Braggadocio jumped on Board the boat and enjoyed the manner in which the Little fellow pummelled him. This scrape appeared to be the signal for several other fights and in the demolition of several edifices and the a housing of several scores of their inmates however during the night our boat left the town and i Learned nothing farther connected with this Dragoon campaigns.
