Notwithstanding what wc have said to correspondents in a previous number, respecting the spirit in which communications must be written to ensure admittance into our columns; we find it necessary to remipd them again of the same subject. A number of communications have been received, which are too per- sonal to be interesting to our readers in general; and which, consequently, cannot be admitted. Our volunteers still keep possession of Goliad, and are determined not to relinquish it into the hands of the enemy. We consider h necessary that this post should be main- tained; as in the hands of the enemy, it might materially assist them in their operations. The force still remain jng there, is about eighty men. We learn that about one hundred and tcmvty men from Alabama and Tennessee, well armed and ...

TELEGRAPH. EXTRACT OF A REPORT Made on the 2d inst., to the Provisional Go- vernment, by S. jP. Austin, Esq., relative to the preparations that are making' by the Centralist againsts Texas, and the calling of a -new Convention. At the time of the former elections, the people did not, and could not fully under- stand their true situation; for it was not known then, tea certainty, what changes would take place in Mexico, what kind of government would be established, or what course would be pursued towards Texas. It was only known, then, that the central party was in power, that all its measures tended to the destruction of the federal sys- tem, and that preparations were making to invade Texas. But at the present time, the people know that the government is changed that cen- tralism is established by the decree of the 3d. October last, and that they are threaten- ed with annihilation. In short, the whole picture is now clearly before their view, and they see the dangers that are hangi...

We have just received the Message of the President of the United States, but have not room to give it to our readers this week. From a hasty perusal of this docu- ment, the impressions received are strongly in its favor. It appears that the relations of the United States with foreign powers, are almost without exception of the most friendly character. The difference with France appears to be in a train for an amicable adjustment. On this sub- ject the President says, "3ince the last session of Con- gress, our claims upon France, as liquidated by the treaty of 1831, have been acknowledged by both branches of h...

Her volunteer army will answer that call; and with a detfef mi- nation to aid and assist them in re-establishing their Constitution and their liberty, they march to victory or the grave. They invite into their ranks all friends to free- dom, of whatever name or nation. They invite them to unite in establishing on a firm and solid foundation, on Mexican soil, the banners of Morales an'd Hidalgo, in- scribed with their own national mqttos.
