The inhabitants of the go6d town of a who through the trying fortunes of the revolutionary struggle were More devout prayers for the Success of the Royal arms than for the Liberty of their i much so that even to Tiow the personal appearance of Many who Coli ducted the Republican army were one Day taken by Surprise.

His Host was one of those retired veterans who had expended their Patri Mony and Best years in their country s service and had returned to his native place bringing his honorable scars arid a Quantity of worthless Continental Piper for his recompense. Nest morning accompanied by his Host the stranger intending to pursue his journey returned to the town i Tell a better and More showed establish ment then the one he had left.

I do not conceive How you can preserve the title of a citizen of a nation at peace Harmony and Friendship with Mexico whip kit the same time you Endeavor to do her All the harm in your Power and to Cut off from her a part of her territory which you have employed with such singular activity. This species of impudence with which you represent yourself As a citizen of the United states excites vivid recollections that your country men first Coni Kencec the War introduced disorder into Texas and still maintain stand ions violation of the treaties which Good Faith unite the two nations. But leaving this examination to tie criticism of the civilized world which is ignorant Nei ther of the origin nor the tendencies of the usurpation of Texas i will quickly show you that you Are mistaken and thai too greatly in supposing Mexico deficient either in t in strength or the will to maintain her incontestable rights 1 feeling As i do All the Merit and importance of Texas All the basis of my country s and the i Pardon Ible results of their renunciation i can never contribute to the recognition of her fatal j will say More never will i permit Sny one to dare Ido that which the nation will not Sanction and he whoever he May be shall be considered and punished As a traitor to the rights and and the glory i your proposals of five millions of dollars for the renunciation it Texas is a miscalculation and an act of audacity permit me sir t add to you that your offer of two i undred thousand dollars for the secret the government of Mexico is an insult and infamy unworthy of a gentleman.

Texas might yet great advantages by covering herself anew with the mexican j Gen. Hamilton s reply. Hamilton s rejoinder lacks nothing in spirit or Force. He hindi himself from the charge of at tempting to bribe so spotless a person age As the and sets Forth the official corruption acid tyranny which first forced Texas into rebellion., he reminds Santa Anna of his violation of pledges to Stephen Austain and Speaks in biting terms of the inglorious Gress it the mexican army in he says you say sir that when you com Arian died your memorable Campaign in 1836, it was illustrated by a series of victories until the occurrence of what you Are pleased to Call the unfortunate Accident of san Jacinto. Your victories if history is a greater novelist than the most of your bulletins consisted in your Beleau Ryng with a Well appointed co rps of three thousand men a Post defended by some Oner Hundred kept your whole Force for at Bay the cd Ture of which found every Man gloriously slaughtered at his Post and in the still More remarkable gallantry of murdering in cold blood five Hundred Brave men under the unfortunate fan bin who had Laid Down their arms to a Force times their number under the Faith of a capitulation which even a horde of calmus tartars would have respected. At san Jacint you were Defeated by the f Accident of your having More than two men to one in the band who were led by the Benefactor to whom you owe your life and by the still More marvellous Accident of Hia having killed in your ranks More than his whole Force and captured an amount of prisoners who outnumbered the victors. These your excellency Mast admit Are such remarkable accidents in the history of War that neither marshal Saxe and his re Erier or the great Conde in his strategy has made the smallest provision for their occur rence. 1 i after Assur fing Santa Anna that his safest and most prudent course will be to make peace with Texas As soon As general Hamilton concludes As follows.
