The commander in chief announces to the army information of
the most encouraging nature from the Interior-That the cause
of the constitution and the Federal system is there gaining new
strength, daily,-that Genl. Alvarez a warm Federalist has lately
gained two imporant victories over the troops of the Dictator-
Santa Anna, and has been joined by two other Generals of dis-
tinction, Montenegro and Grozman-That the troops at Saltillo
and San Luis which had been destined and were actually on the
march for Texas had been ordered back on account of troubles
He further announces that D. Juan Seguin the Mexican who
came to camp last night with his followers and left this morning
has given the most flattering account of the good disposition of
the citizens generally in Bexar and its neighborhood. Their friend-
ship to the cause we are defending and their willingness to serve
us. He has appointed Mr Seguin a Captn. in the army vesting
him with authority to raise a company of Mexican Volunteers to
cooperate with us. They will be of essential service in many
respects-The Commander in Chief deems it his duty to anounce
also a vague rumor he has received, that troops to the number of
300 were on the march from Matamoras and other parts destined
for the garrison at the Nueces and the recapture of La Bahia.
But this rumor is by no means to be credited as there is no sufficient
authority to support it.
The troops from the Nachogdoches Department are confidently
expected to join us within a few days. As soon as they arrive
the force here will be deemed competent for further and more
important operations. At all events the time cannot be long be-
fore the valour and patriotism of the Freemen of Texas will have
an opportunity to display themselves upon the heads of Military
despots and the enemies of Freedom. In the mean time the com-
mander in chief exhorts his countryment to be patient and firm in
the discharge of their duty enduring, as Freemen have always
been known to do evry privation for the sake of the sacred cause
they are defending.-
