In the afternoon a message was sent from the enemy to Tol. Travis demanding an unconditional and absolute surrender of the Garrison threatening to put every my to the sword in Case of a refusal. The Only answer he received was a Cannon shot so the messenger left us with a Flea in his car and the mexicans commenced firing grenades at us but without doing any mischief. At night col.

The old pirate volunteered to go on this expedition and accordingly left the fort after night fall february very Early this morn my the enemy commenced a new Battery on the Banks of the River about three Hundred Anc us Yards from the fort and by afternoon they amused themselves by firing at us from that Quarter. Our Indian scout came in thi evening and with him a reinforcement o thirty men from go no Iles who Are just in the Nick of time to reap a Harvest of glory by there is some Prospect of sweating blood be fore we gather it in. An Accident happened to my fiend trim Berling this afternoon he was intent on his eternal game of Thim Bles in a som what exposed position while the enemy were bombarding us from the new redoubt.

Nothing was to be done hut to fight our Way through. We were All of the same mind. Go ahead cried i. And they All Sli outed go ahead. Colonel we dashed among them and a bloody conflict ensued. They were Yahoni 20 in number and they stood their ground. After myi in America we Are ashamed of cd Ono my. It ii this feeling a High would forbid among us such a practice is that referred to and not Only this but a great Many More and Beltjr Pic ticks. In England Economy stands out prominently it presides Over the arrangements of a family it i openly professed and fears no reproach. A Man is not ashamed to say of a certain indulgence he cannot afford it. A gentleman says to you quot i drive a Pony chaise this year i have put Down my horse Gigi because i cannot pay the tax a Man whose income and expenses and style of living far exc cd Elmosi any thing to be found among us still says of something quite beyond him which his wealth liver neighbor does we Are not Rich enough for one of the most distinguished men in England said to me when speaking of wines at his table a the wine i should prefer is Claret but 1 cannot afford it and so i drink my own i have heard to it Many families carry this principle so far that Uliey determine exactly How Many dinners they can give in a year and to How Many guests. This frankness Oti the subject of Economy among us is a thing unheard of. Not thai we Are More wealthy but nil contrive be Swise. The Competition of Domestic life Amonis us is too keen to admit of any such confessions of internal weakness. We practice c conomy by stealth. Nor is this the worst of if for one consequence of ibis habit of feeling is that we practice too Little. When a stranger looks upon the strife of business in our villages and cities he imagines that Hir sees a very covetous Leopie but a nearer observation would Shew line that much of the s eager absorbing and almost slavish occupation is necessary to sustain the heavy drains of unto necessary expenditure. This extravagance at Home chains Many a Man to the counter and counting room. And this extravagance is of his own choosing because he knows of no other Way of distinguishing himself but by the style of Ould he hut conceive that he might better elevate himself in society by having a Well read Library by improving his mind and conversation by cultivating some Graceful but comparatively cheap accomplishment he might live a Wiser Man and die Richer. Who would hesitate Tocho Osc Between such a family and one whose House was filled with gorgeous furniture where the wife and daughters Are dressed in the gayest of the fashion and the husband and the father banishes himself the live Long Day and half the night from the pleasant mansion to toil and Drudge in the Dusty warehouse lie sleeps in grand House he lives in a have been Burnt Down farms Laid waste and five minutes a Santa Anna appears determined to verify his detachment was seen issuing from the fort to and Civ cart this Blooming Paradise the mexicans scampered off owling wilderness. For just one fair of comrades dead upon threat into a Howlin _ crack at that Rascal even at a Hundred Yards not escape uns Cath distance i would bargain to break my Betsey re a the pirate and the Bee Hunter and never pull trigger again. My name s wounded and i received a not Crockett if i would t get enough the old Man to appease my stomach for the remainder of a to of or _. I the fori. Vve my Young Friend to his Quick work. We were yesterday an Eye witness to a specimen of despatch which had it not fallen under our own inspection we should have been sceptical in believing. It was the operation at the fair of the american Institute of reducing wheat in the Straw to baked bread in ten minutes. The process was As follows twelve bundles of Straw we placed in a machine in the Garden which come out thrashed in a minute and a half the winnowing was tii Clad in a minute the grinding and bolting occurred a minute and a half the dough was kneaded and the cake formed in two minutes. The whole contents of twelve bundles were placed in a Kitchen Range and ome our to roughly in four minutes making in the whole ten Minucci. The cakes were Istria tue around and they Only wanted the us of a cooler and a few pounds of Gibson Utle to have been swallowed in another minute without the Aid of a . Gazette.

A signal of distress had Hen made and it was fortunately discovered by the Revenue Cutter stationed at Castine then about four or five Miles to Windward my she promptly bore up to her Relief. Capt.

The Cutter unfortunately had no boat of us Floc sent Bizri to Render any assistance in taking off the sup errs and having Gunpowder on Board Lieut. Dyer in command did not deem it prudent to approach very near the wreck so that the work of Rescue was unavoidably very tedious. Capt. Reed How ver firmly and Reck icily persevered with his boat though it was with some diff Cully that he could obtain an efficient boat s Crew to approach the wreck fearing the elephant would go overboard and destroy the boat. The last boat left the wreck a Little before Sunset with one solitary frantic female the last on Board whose sister and child had both perished before her eyes. The loss of lives is Esti Inaten at from 26 to 32, there being some so ill children on Lionard which had not been inserted on capt. Reed s passenger list the precise num her cannot be assert inc. The prompt and praiseworthy decision of Captain Reed in securing the boat was the Only Means by which the life of an individual could Lave been saved. The Clephane Eamil and Loi ses jumped overboard and All the animals in the cages were Burn. None of the passengers or Crew s baggage was saved. Manv of the trunks amp a were thrown overboard in the Hope they might be picked up. The Cutter landed the survivors about 8 p.

There has been cast lately at the plate Glass manufactory at st. Go Hin France a plate of the extraordinary size of fifteen feet by twelve t was made for the chateau Des Thuril series. The discovery of the casting of plate Jalass is due to abm. The cart in 1688, who establish dec a factory As above which is now the largest in the world. The British plate Glass is said to e More liable to undulations owing probably to the mass not being continued in a sufficient state of fusion during the Progress of the operation of casting. Why is not the american spirit of Enterprise directed to this species o manufactory since it is so expensive and Dan serous to import Zarije specimens of this article and since we Hava at band All the materials o the Best Quality Grain in the United states.
