The nextpacket from France is expected to bring general Bustamente, from whom much is expected. He will probably be elected to the presidency . Mr. Tourme, the present secretary of war, and de facto, the head of the gov eminent, is beginning to lose his popularity, and will, I doubt not, ere long, be consigned to humble life. His measures are'too despotic even for the present administra- tion, much more so for the great mass of the population, who are opposed to the present military system of government. A gentleman late from Mississippi has politely handed us several numbers of the Mississippi Christian Herald, which we have not hitherto had the pleasure ' -to peruse, and we are gratified to see that this paper, at the same time it is the -watch tower of the christian religion, is a staunch defender of liberty and an a...

To the House of Representatives of the United Stales: During the last session, information was given to Congress by the Executive, that measures had been taken to ascertain "the political, military and civil condition of Texas." I now gubmit for your consideration, extracts from the report of the agents who had been appointed to collect it, relative to the con- dition of thatfcountry. .No steps have been taken by the executive towards the acknowledgement of the Independence of Texas; and the whole subject would have been left without further remark on the in- formation now given to Congress, were it not that the two hou- 'ses at their last session, acting separately, passed resolutions "that the Independence of Texas ought to be acknowledged by the United States, whenever satisfactory information should b...

It neither recom- mended the recognition of 'the independence of Texas or her admission into the Union. These subjects were referred and left to the departments if the Federal Government, to which they appropriately belong. On these points he did not feel himself called upon to express an opinion. But he would ask those who weredisposed to pursue a narrow and selfish policy towards Texas; he would aslcthe planters of the South, who may apprehend the extreme peril of another gigantic competitor in ih ...

ts to this measure is their preservation due, and I will never repent it, whatever be the comment made.

2 TELEGRAPH. COLUMBIA, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1837. Wo understand that general T. J. Rusk has resigned the appointment of Secretary of State, to which he was appointed, after the decease of general S. F. Austin. The ill health, and neglect of the private circumstances of general Rusk his long ahsence from home bis distant residence from the seat of government, connected with the recent death of his brother-in-law, major L. Smith, ren- dered such a course necessary. But we are assured, that should the necessities of the country again require his services, he will be found at the post of danger and usefulness. t Late JlppoinmenU by the President. General J.

m From the Natchez Tri-weekly Courier, TEXAS. CAUSES OP THE RELEASE OP SANTA ANNA. The following communication comes to hand at a very fa- vorable juncture, when the presses from every quarter are rife with speculations respecting the reasons that actuated the Texian chief magistrate in releasing the captive president of Mexico. For the information and satisfaction of those at a distance who feel interested in the welfare of this interesting country, perhaps it would be no more than proper for us to state that the centleman who favored us with this communication is a highly respected gentleman of the Natchez bar, and who, being inti- mately acquainted with the head of the government and the leading men of Texas, has all the adequate opportunities of speaking authentically on the subject. This expose of the course of policy adopted by the Texians is highly satisfactory, and although we have been inclined to doubt the expediency of the measure, we are now convinced that the interests ...

For this reason, should the number of troops be aug- mented, and the same errors still exist, the inconveniencies of another campaign which may be undertaken, will be multiplied for these same causes; the public treasury will be still farther pledged, and perhaps without a better result. No transactions could, nor can now, take place between me and the commander of the enemy's forces, inasmuch as it was done by the president, even when I was doubtful of his exis- tence; because I supposed, and with probability, that he and all ...

This concluded the second campaign, and thence, it is said, a new epoch in her history was dated."' Such is an unvarnished picture of the present condition of Texas, drawn, not from fancy, but from history, and from the official report of the confidential agent, Mr. Morfit. Who, after perusing it, can entertain a single doubt as to the ability of the Texians to maintain their independence?...

For the actual enjoyment of the inherent liberty of free-born men, it has become necessary that we fight for tho preservation of even its shadow.

By the last express from San Antonio, we understand that Bravo had left jthe command of the Mexican army, and returned to Mexico. That general Amada, at Matamoros. with a force of 4000 or 5000, had it in contemplation to dispatch a force of six or eight hundred mounted men, for the purpose of taking possession of San Antonio and Goliad, knowing that the latter place was unoc- cupied, and the former only garrisoned by a small force; after doing which) commissioners were to be despatched to the government of Texas, for the pur- pose of treating definitively for peace and independence. How far this may be true, time alone can determine. It may be an artifice of the enemy, for pur- poses which it is not easy to comprehend. We would, however, advise the citizens to put their guns in shooting order, and in every way equip themselves for service, in the event...
