The, Navy of the Republic of Texas.
The want of funds has compelled the Treasury to give a bill
for $4000 to complete the $12,208, which will be paid in thirty
days after date, consequently Mr. Seeger has only received $8666.66
including the account of supplies, and an order for account of
the Schooner San Bernard.
Commodore Moore now sailed for Galveston with the squadron;
and arriving there May 1, 1842, and finding President Houston
and the secretary of war and the navy, Col. ilockley, there, he per-
sonally handed the latter his final report of the cruise of the squad-
ron; the most important parts of which are as follows :'
I parted company with the San Bernard on the morning of
the 6th April, and in consequence of continued winds .
did not arrive at Sisal until the morning of the 18th, when I met
the San Antonio, she having on board Mr. Thos. Lubbock. .
The same afternoon the brig of War Wharton arrived, and the
next day I sent Lt. Comd'g. Winm. Seeger to Merida. . . . On
the forenoon of the 23rd, the San Bernard arrived, when I re-
ceived your communication of the 14th ult . . . And got
underway-the brig Wharton, and schrs. San Antonio and San
Bernard in company: the next afternoon we all anchored off
Campeache. On the 25th, the Yucatan vessels of war, two brigs
and two schrs.-went to sea, and as they passed us they lowered
their flags three times which we of course returned. In the after-
noon I received on board eight thousand dollars. . . . we all
got under way at 1 o'clock A. M., (26th.) In the afternoon parted
company with the Wharton off the Arcas Islands and pushed on
for this place, where I arrived to-day, and anchored at 4 o'clock-
the San Antonio in sight astern, but the San Bernard not, she
will be up tomorrow.
