JThe relations betueen this country and the Republic
of Texas aro about to form a subject of ecrioii3 delibera
tion in Congress, thougli, as ou have seen, the President
avoided any notice ot them in h:s annua! Message, it ii
Hot to be inferred from the President's silence on the sub-
ject, that either he or his administration, or the people at
jt" - largo .arc indifferent to it. On the contrary, no one ot j

There arc, besides the quest? ' of immediate annexa
tion, manv other points of view in which our relations
"with Texas intercut itu Conner.tcn as Texas is, and al-
Jret ways must ba in the southern and wes'crn section of the

of the Detroit Theatre, who tired of pkijing Richard on

army. v ....
Duncombe is said to Le at home, about his buainess.
Gen. Scott is at his quarters at tlr; Amcncan-our Actor
and engaged in keeping the militia from open, mutiny,
and investigating the forged order to Col. Ransom, by
which the States Cannon were procured by the Patriots.
Lot me give you the facts of this transaction. The or-
doi was forged by a broken down land speculator, brother
1 to a prominent member of the Patriot committee. Col.
Riiuom was privy to it. John T. B-ish was not,and his
affidavit that he thought the writing to be Scott's was pro-
cured to screen Ransom.. When Van Rensselaer was told
what had been done, he went to the forger. "You damn-
ed rascal," he exclaimed, "you h i o ruined the cause you
atlemDted to servo. If I fail thpnigh this transaction, I
will blow your brains out, if I follow you to the ends of
tin. catm to do it"
I believe Van Rensselaer to bo an honest, ambitious,
bold, enterprising and talented nnn, fond of any daring
niraticaL enterprise, but altogether above the meanness of
a felon. His intended bride resides at Syracuse, and isi
one of the most beautiful and accomplished young ladies
in the state.
The Patriot army, late of Navy Island, are scattered
all along the villages on the southern border of Lake Erie.
Albany, Jan. 2Cth.
The war ib ended. Governor Mason has acted with a
inaniv zsal in defence of tho neutrality between England
and the United States. He went in the Erie which
l-an-oiir suu'fceinjEPBlwas '"'J rccaptured-with one hundred volunteers against
TY&inofson Hoi UlancTsland. He found there as
sembled two hundred half starved and half frozen wretch

taken and landed on the Amarican shore immediately op-
posite, whore they dispersed, gia8 to get out ef the scrape
into w hich they had unwittingly got themselves. AH tho
arms stolen from tho U. S. Arsr nal were seized by the
Governor r.nd carried back.

"Captain Shreve's snagboat passed here a few days
since, for the purpose of renw ing the remainder of the
Great Red River Raft, which it is supposed will be ac-
complished in some few weeks, "We will then have an
uninterrupted navigation above this town, on the Red Riv

River, 200, on Blue River, 150, on the False Washita,
300, making 2300 miles of navigable waters above this
place, tlr ugh, probabh , the finest conntry on the globe.
The emigration to the country in the vicinity of this town
is enormous, so much so, that provisions of all descrip
tions command excessive prices, and v. ere it not for sup
plies, brought by the boats running in the trade between
this and Natchez, much inconvenience u ould be experi-
enced by the movers. Corn sells at t o and half dollars
the bushel, and many flat-beat loads have been contracted
for, from above, at that price-

our western settlers, renders it necessary that he should espouse
the cause of one of tbo parties. He states that ho prefers join-

his tribe, and p.irtlj because he feels confident that the Texians
will be successful in the present contest. There is another rea-
son which he did not mention : the Mexican settlers are richer
taan ours, he therefore can steal from them to the best advan-
tage. The Prcsidfnt being absent on a visit to Nacogdoches,

the orator and the philanthropist, the poet like the Thra-
cian Orpheus, hymns soft cadence in thrilling melody;
"As thrd' the hedge-row shade, the violet steals;
And the soft air iti modest leaf reveals;
Her softer charms but by thoir influence known,
Surprise all hearts and mould them to her own."
Let their exertions and their influence bo but directed in
favor of the besj interests of ojraiation, and tho per-
petuation of oar rights, and wc shall long be indepen-
dent. Most respectfullv yours,
