pgr We had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Irwin,
from Matamoros and Brownsville, which placea he
left on Monday last* Be informs as that the Lib-
eral forces under Escobedo, Cortina A Co., had
been withdrawn from around the city. A rein-
forcement of about 2,000 French and Austrians
had arrived at Bagdad and there can now be no
doubt but that Gen. Mejia will hold Matamoros
and keep open communication with Bagdad. The
Imperialists have two gunboats on the river be-
sides the steamer Antonio, which mounts one gun.
It is the impression of Mr. Irwin that the Liberals
have withdrawn to recruit their foroee, though we
believe that they had a fear of Media's reinforce-
ment, which was, no doubt, their principal reason
for retiring. We also learn from Mr. Irwin, that
the steamer Bio Grande was captured a short time
since, by the Liberals. It seems that a party of
them crossed one night at Clarksville, cut loose
the Bio Grande from her mooriogs at Bagdad and
pulled her over the river to this side. The Cus-
tom House officials at Clarksville have taken pos-
session of her, though it is thought that she will
be turned over to the captors.

We have heard it mid that one of the rea-
sons that our citizens were so dilatory about reg-
istering, was that they did not know when they
would have an opportunity to vote. As they now
have an opportunity afforded to them to vote, we
irust that we shall see the toll of voters greatly
increased. Many of the counties with less popu-
lation than Galveston have a larger number of vo-
ters registered. The Governor lias ordered the
necessary measures for us to again refer matters
to elections by the people, as may be seen from
our telegraphic dispatch in to-day's Bulletin.
ptr It will be remembered that Governor Ham-
ilton appointed a committee to inquire into the
condition of our State Treasury. Ex-Oov. E. M.
Pease and Mr. ¿toante Palm have made a report of
their investigations. The report oomes near fill-
ing eleven columns of the Southern Intelligenaer.
The report shows, that the books of tbe last Mili-
tary Board vire not very accurately kept. We at
present have not the spaoe to publish the report
in foil, but to show how our financial matters have
been managed daring the last few years, we pub-

of Confederate bonds, which aU persons were ear-
nestly advised to invest in, in fact you made sucb
misplaced confidence a test of loyalty, but you,
yourselves were too disinterested to become a cre-
ditor of the «in king Confederacy.
For the first two years of the rebellion you were
very bold, confident and defiant in the advocacy ol
"our cause." You asserted your position and is-
sued your mandates in the imperious tones of a
dictator; but for the other half of the time, you
endeavored to support youi unteniable positions
by false argumente and ansertionH. You tolo the
people they were unanimous for secession,
that they were the freest most enlightened, ami
most patriotic nation in the world; that they had
within their own country all the resources for car-
rying on a protracted war, and with tlieir chival-
rous character, never could be conquered; and you
instanced the revolutions of ether countries, ana
belied history to deceive the people.
You showed at the very time the Southern armies
were being driven with great slaughter from 'one
stronghold to another, and giving up the country,
that we could successfully invade the North, and
oblige our so called enemies to sue for peace at
their very hearth stones.
Every retreat on our part was a strategy tie move-
ment; the more our armies became thinned and
demoralized by the war, the better condition were
they in, according to your account.
You declared to the deluded people that the in
' habitants of the free States were a blood-thifty,
evil-minded race of cowardly tyrants and free-
booters, and to support yonr assertion, j|ou invented
all sorts of false accounts about their inhuman
treatment of Southern women and children in the
You asserted that subjugation would be more
than lingering death, and that re-construction was
impossible; that the two antagonistic sections
could no more mingle and harmonize, than water
and oil ; that the Northerners, being base born,
were selfish and cowardly ; while we, a high toiwd^
