Editors a the recent publication in the Indianapolis journal of the correspondence Between the canal commissioners and Gen. Tipton has doubtless railed the attention of Many to the matter in dispute Between the parties and As Gen. Tipton is at present in better business than attending to the prefatory remarks and the colouring Given to the correspondence which does not appear to me warranted or called for i must ask the favor of a Small space in your paper briefly to no lice the subject. The Anim diversions which i now Send you suggested themselves to my mind on first Reading the publication alluded to and Trio ugly my hours of health have been so occupied As to delay them some time from the press Uliey May still be apropo in directing the people to further cognizance of the controversy in tiie first place. Gen. Tipton asks As a right that his fences should not be thrown Down and his Fields exposed to utter devastation. The answer a it Folie of the Board was a refusal to comply with , and giving the opinion of the it Council As to the Law regulating the course it a suede a conclusion which 1 think any reflecting Man will dissent from and one Wirich 1 Trust will induce such prompt action from our legislature at its next Sesmon As will preserve us from an Extension of its onerous consequences. Or. Johnson not Only Jusli fios himself in tearing Down fences and exposing to waste the toils of the Fields the Only to e of the Farmer a hut reasons that because a Man May happen to o in an estate or be a Mem Ler of the United states Senate lie has no right to defend his , Friend Johnson in becoming Clia Pion of the Board you must have Begotten the Friendly relations lii at at least ought to exist with another a i City or did you divest yourself of your cuff ii and say quot lie thee there Quaker till 1 chastise the villain quot a and further let me advise you before you again assume such a position to re elect on the imbecility of the one and the hallucination of the other of your roller Guys. In making the foregoing observations let i be understood that they Are not in defence of Gen. Tipton lie Ivilo be Best Able on his return Home to expose the publication of speculators if indeed it should at All require his pen to unmask them. And now messes. Editors for fear of a flagellation i will claim the right of signing myself anonymously Verity sans per.

Santa Anna is said to have been found in a tree after a Chase of some Miles. Houston is reported to have received a wound in the ankle. A letter received at Memphis from a respectable House in new Orleans contains information that Santa Anna and cos had been tried l y a court martial and Slio but As no mention is made of this in Gen. Guides letter it May probably be premature. The editor of the Cincinnati Aveai i administration paper pays the of towing tribute to the integrity and patriotism of Gen. Arrison quot Gen. Harrison we do not Only believe to bean honest nan but we know him to be so lis personal character we esteem and Admire in is open candid and honest in his intentions be is no hypocrite he pretends not to hold principles Wirich he does not approve in order to recommend himself to office he Speaks his mind freely and avowedly.

Important fit of a has revolved the spokes in her it she Els and now sides with a gentleman arrived from Atta Kapas in this state and he asserts that two persons had been at st. Martinsville immediately before his departure who stated As a positive fact within their own cognizance that an engagement had taken place Between part of the texan and mexican Arm. The Atter had been separated in two bodies divided by the brasses whose sudden Rise prevented their Junction. The larger body consisting of about 1400 men who being attacked by general Houston set fire to the town of Ilar Risburg and retreated but Houston succeeded in overtaking them about 7 Miles from the place compelled them to a pitched Battle in which 700 of the mexicans were killed and 500 taken prisoners among whom was cos whose parole will serve him on this occasion the enemy was completely routed and the loss of the texans was very inconsiderable. General Houston immediately marched in Pursuit of the other body and May have equally captured them but this is not yet ascertained. Writing the above we heard it stated As if on Good Auto Jority that general Houston held a Council of War on the Fate of the prisoners and Santa Anna and All the officers had been shot the privates were sent to mat Nioras. It was also stated that Gen. Gaines had written a private letter o tins account but we did not see can be no Doul t however that Houston has conquered and that the mexican army is prostrated.

We cannot but congratulate the citizens of Buffalo therefore upon the favourable effect which this circumstance is calculated to produce. Last year there had been several arrivals from new York by Way of the Welland canal before the Harbor of Buffalo was opened. This season the Erie canal route will have the advantage. Although several vessels have sailed for Oswego there has As yet we believe been no arrivals from that port. Some however Are daily expected. In. Tribute to or. Clay.
