averaged over twenty days. We arc informed that there is little or no difference in the cost of freight whether landed at one or the other of these places ; and by reference to the advertisement of the Corpus Christi and Bexar Transportation Line in another column it will be perceived that the cartage upon goods from Corpus Christi to this place is much cheaper than what our merchants usually pay from Port Lavacc. These are considerations that are bound to have considerable weight with the citizens of San Antonio. The above is from the Western Texian printed in San Antonio and bears us out fully in what we have so frequently urged relative to the bad roads from Lavaca. We knew this winter could not pass over before the merchants of San Antonio would have to look to this place for their supplies from New Orleans. Poisons interested in houses in both San Antonio and Lavaca may to keep up both places put up with the inconveniences and delays on the Lavaca road but business men will be ...

V . For the'Corpus Christi Star FREEDOM OF THOl'OHT SPEECH AXD ACTroX. I would not yield one fieeborn thought For all Pcruvia's shining ore ; Nor yet for all the riches brought From further India's spicy shore ; The treasures of the immortal mind That chains or dungeons cannot bind. I would not yield the right to say What honor and what truth demand ; Tho' I was forced in face of day Like him of old to thrust my hand Into the flame; all glowing red To prove the truth of what I said. I would not yield the will to rove And follow fancy's glittering ray; Through crowded mart in silent grove Or o'er the ocean's billowy way For all the power a throne can yield The doubtful power that monarchs wield. At a meeting held on Wednesday evening January 23d. at" the house of Mr. 1'isk for the purpose of organizing a company to go to California Mr. Clark- was called to the Chair. On motion of Mr. Fisk it was resolved to appoint a committee of three to draft resolutions relative to the qualificati...

These gentlemen were highly delighted with their sojourn amongst us. During their stay here and at their departure they expressed their en- tire convictions that Corpus is the most advantageous point on tho Gulf coast for communicating with the entire line of the Rio Grande and we have no doubt the coming summer will see our Bay enlivened by the steamers of Uncle Sam. Col. Evertson. This gentleman left here on Thursday last for the Rio Grande. His object in visiting Corpus Christi was to make some arrange- ments for the transportion of supplies to his trading station at or near the Presidio.

The Chenango Boys in California. One of the finest companies belonging to Col. Steven- son's California Regiment was Capt. Dimmick's Chenango Company. A letter from the Captain to his friends at home published in the Chenango Telegraph gives a good report of their conduct and services in California which we copy in part: " That portion of the First Regiment of N. York Volunteers consisting of company K commanded by Captain Dimmick and compny C commanded by Captain Brackeit have this day been mustered from the service and received an honorable discharge. Though they have not had the opportunity of fighting any great battles yet they have met the enemy in small detachments where they contended against fourtimes their numbers in the southern part of California and shown themselves equal to any emergency and what they would have done had it been required or had they had the opportunity. This regiment has gone farther from home kept a much larger extent of country in perfect subjuga- tio...
