wJvimi J- rated 10 the prejudice of Texas, by inducing this republic to think we are in a much weaker and disaffected situa- tion than we truly are, (bad as U may be) so I am told by intelligent Mexican officers. War, unceasing tear, and that carried into their country, and in their own mode-of warfare, is the only thing which ever will give peace, re- spected peace to our country, and at the same time, (which is of more importance than offensive War) the total expul- sion of the Mexicans entirely from our border. In Gen'l. Rey's late report of the Somervell army, he says his spies in Bexar, and those of Ampudia's gave notice of ev- ery movement of the unfortunate Mier men. If this re- port will not induce the expulsion of the deceptive Mexi- can gang, then reason and sense may fold their arms. -We 55 are all well work daily," about one half.

The citizens of several' of the eastern couri- ties"ofTexas are also turning their attention to this cul- ture, and probably will in a few years Furnish all the su- gar required for home consumption. The" process of man- ufacturing sugar from cornstalks is exceedingly simple. The corn is cutjust as -it begins to tasser," -and. the stalks are ground in a common sugar mill, with wooden rollers, Iiket:ane. ' One ton of cornstalks will yield just half as much sugar as a ton of sugar cane, and one acre of corn will yield 1O00 pounds"of sugar. There is this advan- tage "in thexafture of corn, that two crops can often be Taiseda the same year, and thus 2000 pjuads of sugar made from an acre planted with corn. We believe it is seldomthat our planters can r...

THE TELEGJlAPHr EDITED EY FSANCIS MOOUE, Jr. Moiiston, Wednesday, Jtmel&i I84S-, Culture of Silk. Hitherto the culture of silk ha-, been regarded by a' majority of the Southern planters, ra- ther as an amusing, than a profitable pursuit. While col- ton could be sold at ten or fifteen cents a pound, and to baccoat eight or nine cents, these articles became th great staples of the South, and consequently engrosse- the attention of our agriculturists. But now, hal th- price of these articles have declined so far that they n. longer are considered profitable, our planters will neces sarily turn their attcution to other miicles of culture, th&- will "afford a fair return for their labor. Aong these, sill -will necessarily, command serious attention. If Franc is-enabled to produce annually an amount of silk wort! . more than $25,000,000, and the cultivators derive fi on thisjsourcea higher profit than from any other branch, o v agriculture, why may not the planters of Texas consid...

It is also to be observed that at the time of the capitulation, our citizen were by no means "vanquished, tut mighthave fought their way out with much probabili- ty of success, had not the most solemn promises of kind treatment, and security for persons and property been made them by the Mexican commanders, Gen. Ampudia and Canal es. In each of the instances now before recited, the acknow- ledged laws of civilized war, as well as principles of com- mon humanity, have been outrageously violated by Mexi- co. But the capture and treatment of the prisoners taken at Bexar in September last, are attended by circumstances ,of great aggravation. The Mexicans entered the town early in the morning, under the cover of a dense fog, and without any previous notification whatever. There were no troops at this point at the time, a3 was well known to Gen. Wbll, (he having constant mean...

It is feared that Mr. Fergu- son can survive his wounds only a few days. The peo- ple of that section have charged the murder to a person who has held high rank in the country : and who, we be lieve has hitherto sustained an unblemished reputation. j We forbear at present mentioning the name nf the sus- pected person, as we learn that due investigation will be made by the proper officers. The Steamboat Pioneer was lately sold at Gal veston by decree of the Court of Admiralty, and the pur- chasers attempted to take her to Matagorda; but while on the passage, she sprung a leak, and the commander, Capt, Burns, was compelled to run her ashore about 30 miles east of Passo Cavallo.

A'dams, and the latter firmed hiniself and met Dr. Hagan while on his way from his boarding house to his office, just after dinner. Adams struck the'Doctor with a cane, a scuffle ensued, and both parties fell. Dr. H. being uppermost, Adams then drew a pistol and shot the former in the back of the head, killing him instantly. Dr. Hagan, it is said, was unarmed, and as Mr. Adams, sought-him with arms, evidently with the intent to -kill him, it seems to be a clear case of murder, and his own life will probably pay the forfeit of his crime.
