In the prosecution of these investigations, we have been brought in coutact with many of the leading spirits of all parties ; and of the Texans who are at present in this city, on various missions, we have had interviews with a majority. It is a matter of regret to us that we have no very satisfactory report to make, as the result of these endeavors.
