Texas was then in ils very infancy and has not yet reached ils adolescent stale: and is not in a condition to withstand the shocks of a violent collision between the ehilaud military depar menls.

J MMJHUMiW MM 1 1 II w I t There is some plausibility in litis objection: biit lite force of it is destroyed by lite fact that this treaty has been recognized and in some very valuable points exe- cuted bvlhc present chief of theMcxican fortes inTexas. In pursuance of (hat treaty Gen. Filisola has agreed to evacuate our territory and has already passed the JXtle cesand is probably by this time crossing the Rio Grai.de at the head of 5000 troops. Does Texas derive no advantage from this effect of the much abused treaty? Is the peaceable retirement of 5000 lately hostile troopsi front the counMy. unworthy of consideration suppose they had concentrated at some strong point and fortified their positon would it have cost us nothing to dislodge tliem? The very subsistance of such a force in our ans part the rigid severity and the disgusting filthiuess of a Mexican prison can form suine idea ol the anxiety of those brnve but unfortunate detendrs of Texas to be relieved from their loathsome...

Sir I observe in your paper of the 10th inst. a tran- slati n of a power of attorney purporting to have been executed by me in January 1K35 to iMr. Samuel M. Williams; and 1 also observe with sincere regret some very disingenuous idilurial remarks upon that docu- ment. I can readily excuse your own errors because 1 am persuaded that you have been betrayed by those whom your interest prompjs you to serve into the false and ungenerous imputations which you have cast upon me. 1 therefore notwithstanding the vindiciheness which !.. .... l .! .

' ' Vi .. unconstitutional. There is great excitement upon that' subject mrougnout tne whole r.ast. Yesterday I saw a letter from Red River written by a gentleman of high standing- at Clarksville in which he asserts that Judge Burnet will get three thousand majority in those counties. There is no question but the Judge will get considerable majorities in Jefferson Jas-perBurnetand Houston counties; and if the west is true to herself his election is morally certain and by a maionty ot three thousand votes. As to the Vice President we are going here almost unanimously for ben. Burleson and his election by- all is looked upon with certainty. This is as it should be; he i a man of irreproachable character and a sound thinking man who has done more public duty . than any man in 1 exas and has made less fuss in doing it. The following we extract from the letter of a gentle man well known in Franklin Robeilson county: Franklin July 18lli 1S41. My id Friend and Neighbor 1 have merelv time t...

hJitiM - &tcC JjJHttk respectable citizens of the land cannot publish the truth against one' who has been high in office though corrupt in morals and who again seeks the first office in the gift of the people without being denounced by such upstarts of the hour who for the time have control of the press? If so what are we to expect next but political corruption and moral de- gradation? Our country we invoke for thee a higher a fairer a more exalted destiny! Postscript. Next week we will pay our respects to the Gazette's attack of yesterday upon the military order authorizing the people of Victoria to defend them- selves against the kidnappers abductors and murder ers of our Western citizens. The editor of the Gazette is in good company with his Matagorda co-laborer in abusing his government for repelling such outrages. . Qiiere. Is Col. H. Millard the letter writer of the Gazette the same who run for Congress in Jefferson county and received two votes and one of them his own? if...

. -given too much plausibility. it is therefore of the ut and confidence. We have everything to fear upon this most importance that we now elect a man lo the head of the nation whose character will command respect head if bam Houston is elected. The report of his character abroad is even worse than at home. On the contrary judge Burnet is known abroad particularly in the United States as a man of high moral characler and of unyielding integrity; a man whoseelection would elevate our national character abroad as well as at home. Now fellow citizens is Gen. Houston a fit person to fill the office of President? is he a person whom you would have your sons form their principles after? Will he not degrade the office and mak : it not to be sought after by men of virtue and morality ? As good citizens should we not sacrifice our individual predilections for the public good! Might we not just as well elect a man who is occasionally 11071 compos mends as one whose faculties are often derange...
