the citizens of Independence. The donations of-land alrea-
dv received are as follows, viz: a site for a church and a
12 acre lot in San Felipe, given by express ordinance of
the city government ; 50acres tor a camp ground, on
which is a church" partially completed, at Piney Creek,
by Messrs. Bell and Granville; 25 acres at Center Hill
fora parsonage by-David Ayere,Esq., 2 acres for a church
at Travis, by Messrs Cleaveland and Kuykendalh 5 acres
for a camp ground and a church on Caney creek by James
Stephens, Esq , 2 acres in the town of Halloway for a
church) by J. Beaucamp, Esq., 25 acres at Cedar Creek
for a parsonage, by Win. Keesee, Esq. and 4 acres at In-
dependence for a church, by Messrs. Barren & WiJIson.:
The readiness and liberality with which these donations ,
have been made, are .a gratuying indication of the interest
felt by the citizens ot Texas, for the early establishment
of religious institutions among them, and receive the bean-
felt gratitude of the Methodist Episcopal chnrch. Provis-
ions are.thas received forsites-of Churches, camp grounds
and parsonarres against ihe time when perhaps the chief
religious expenses of the country would be for such ob-
jects. Other offers have been made at every other preach-
ing appointment on the. circuit, which will be acknowl-
edged wheni the negotiations are completed.

Though the citizens complain -of the licentiousness of
the soldiers, they acknowledge that their presence, at least
has scared away the Indians. They feel safe, is is true,
hut thatsafety they consider only nominal. Until the per-

Ofxaptain Lewis's company of volunteers whose camp
we visited, and the onty one wo hadthe pleasure of seeing,
we muft speak .in the highcsUteima. .The ofScers are
gentlemanly, vigHent, and efficient in their militarv de-
portment, and the soldiers exemplary, obedient and farth-
, ul in the discharge -of -their subordinate duties. They
.seem to lotfe a military "life for its novelty, and conform to
its deprivations as a duly -they owe to their country.
We wish, -however, we could say as much of the su-
perior offjere. In our opinion no consideration is weigh-
ty enough to justify those to whose trust is confided the
-cafe of the army to leaveitheir posts. General Burleson,
we believe to be on officer of experience and character.

are some Jew others who had better have some less respon-
sible employment, if hey-mustbe employed at the ex-

Vk - tthe safeguard ot his country and nndsithe principle om-
it -cers of .that army off, some hundreds of miles perhaps, on
parties ot pleasure, and neglects to speak ot it atterwards
tto the pmperf authority, he becomes "himself, the one who
concealsthe crime. The thoughts are rendered more ag-
gravating by the recollection, that those very' men ".hare
been placed- in situations over worthy citizens who have
served the country; have "become acquainted with the art
of Indian warfare, and have dearly purchased an undee-
ded right to promotion. The man, we are sarry to saw,
who can wear well thedashy uniform of a blue coat, epau
lettes, and brass buttons without .the .necessary military ,
qualifications, too easily "becomes an officer in our army.
.Such, officers are more emulous of show and display on
the passway and in the drawing room and ball room, than
4hey are ambitious of distinction by services rendered to
rthe country in the field--
From, the "Neio Orleans ZTrue American.
-Many, and various, and.at times nota little amusing,
.are the editorial speculations about whafthe Mexicans in-
tend to do after the fall of Tampico and what great deeds
-are to be enacted hy the Anglo-Saxon race, with their
Gallican president, in Texas. While awaiting intelli-"j
jgence from -other quarters, wifi which our commercial
and political connections are more-important, we may
whilelaway anjiour or two-in.emmining the relative po-
sitions of Texu and.Mexica
ThepoKcy-of preudaiiLaniarlasiar.as developed since
he entered into office, -has-been strictly" a. defensive one:
ie did "not even talk of invading MexicOrduriarrthn fa vog-
able moment when victory had declared for.the-federahsts,
nd the internal provinces only wanted a deader to rally
them. The fact we presume to be, that general Lamar
disco veredthat a majority .ol the people of Texsis were
averse to a military life, and could not be induced to sacri-
fice their new homes and the prospects of themselves and
families, for the hardships and Jisks which must be en-
countered by the common soldier. The declaration of
Judge Burnet, the -vice-preaident, 'proves that there is a
-strong party in Texas aveise to standing,- armies, and the
aggrandizement of the republic beyond the Bio del Norte.
.Besides the prudent notions oCthe Texian rulers, there, is
-amply sufficient in the character of the settlers of , that
1 .country, to lead to theinference ifhatthey are not exactly
a race of conquerers. Two-thirds, we believe, of the
present inhabitants of Texashave emigrated -iromJNorth
and South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. Most of
them were poor or in very middling circumstances,.at
home, and many of them are little advanced in edu
cation, and ignorant of -the military art. The habits of
these people must undergo great changes, before theyTie-
come the warlike, ambitious race, such as one would ex-
pect to find in the -conquerors of a country so extensive as
ithat of Mexico. -
With finances at a low ebb, and creditwimpaired, the
government of Texas would "find.it a difficult matter to
raise, arm, and send into the field an army -large, enough
to invade Mexico with any prospect -ofauccess. , It is pos-
sible, however, that what the government may. be unable
do do, individuals may attempt an a similar .scale. There
are believed to be in the different states of the'TJnioo, thou-
sands of those bipeds called ixmfers, whom it would not
be very difficult to rally for an invasion or any country
where the precious metals are .supposed to bo abundant.
.But to do this will reguire considerable outlays of money,
and the person who attempts it, must besides enjoy a cer-
iain reputation for conduct and -bravery. Perhaps either
-of the generals Houston could'succeed in such -an enter-
prize, provided they could induce moneyed nien-to ad-
vance the principal sinew of war, -money.
On the other-hand, if we turn to Mexico, and examine
into the avowed dispositions of her rulers, and what may
2e well termed their interests, we shaHiind.that every
.thing unites to make another campaign against Texas ex--tremely
probablelT not inevitable. It is true there are
people who hold the "Mexicans'm such little -estimation
.they are unwillinglo admit the possibility of another in-
vasion of Texas. Time we apprehend is destined to teach
these people better, and afford adesson-to some .other poli--ticians
of the same.calibre. Mexico can now send an ar.
my of several thousand men into the field, and we have
lately hcared of active exert ons to fill up the ranks tothe
number authorized by -law, say 36,000 men. With one
sixth "of this force, a-skillful general could carry fire and
sword into the heart of Texas, aided as he would be in the
work of devastation by numerous bands ofeavages.
'But it will besaid perhaps, that .Mexico has not one
general of sufficient talentor .such an undertaking and
.should tho invasion be made, 1000 Texian rifles will be
enough to exterminate the invaders. Ifous verrcms. It
- -will.be the part Jf prudence, "however, in the Texians not
-always to rely on the inferiority of the Mexicans in cour-
.ageand strength.- Travellers are not altogether agreed
as to the non-existence of -these traits in the character of
the Mexicans, however despicable may oe the criminals
.recruited for some of the regiments The Mexican offi-
cers have had some opportunities fox taking practical les-
sons in war. They havehad Poles & other foreigners
among the ro; and to suppose all ignorant and gpodibr no-
thing, would be'to calculate on that which seems impro-
bable. We hope the second invasion of Texas may prove
as fatal to the Mexicans as the first; but this will not be
brought about unless energy and .prudence are exerted to
the utmost by those vhose duty it-is lo watch over the
safety of Texas."

The following is an extract from a letter to the editor of
the Galvestonian, relative to Galveston Bay :
;Our county is so little known, even in the U. States,
that many erroneous .rumors are obtaining circulation in
almost all their north-eastern ports respecting Galveston
bar and harbor and I should, therefore, feel much oblig-
ed, if, through the medium of your paper, you wouldmake
known the f allowing true and correct statement of the bar
In the first place It may be approached with less dan-
ger than any port in the United States, as the whole line
ot coast west of theSabiue, mfive fathoas oj water, is the
best of holding-ground anda vessel may ride with per
fect safety, throughout the year so that masters of vessels
oound to tjal veston, having good ground tackling, need not
be apprehensive o a lee-shore that seeming to be their
principalbbject of alarm.
As both the latitude and longtude of the Easteud of Gal-
veston Island, laid down on charts and books of direction,
are incorrect and in consequence, many vessels have run
to the westward of theport, by the error "in longitude, and
the prevailing westerly current-th? following is the cor
rect latitude 29 aeg. 16 mm. 37 sec. "Worth 94 deg. 49
min. 41 sea West longitude.
My -statement of the latitude and longitude is gathered
from the best of sources, as I am indebted to many officers
of well known reputation in the Wavy, as well-asconiman-ders
of trading vessels, for their kind assistance, both by
Observations and chronometers. Masters ol vessels may,
therefore, lay aside all doubts and fears.
Galveston has, heretofore, on account of its being low
land, been found difficult to make but now that we have
upwards of 3000 houses, many of -them are so lofty, that,
from the. mast-head of a vessel, they may be disiinctlvseen
at a distance of 20 miles, it is easily made. Vessels," how
ever, ol heavy draught, should not approach the bar near-
er than six fathoms and then, by ma king. a signal for a
pilot, they will be promptly attended. to. Vessels making
this port at night, would do well to cometo.an anchor till
daylight For the convenience of obtaining a pilot, ves-
sels dra wing -eight ieet or less, -may approach as near as
four fathoms uf water.
I do not hesitate to say, that a vessel once anchorwl in
Galveston harbor, ie as -safe as in any harbor in the U.
-Masters of vessels are particularly requested on sight-
ing the city, if to the eastward, and it bearing a little to the
southward of west south-west, immediately to haul off lo
six fathoms, the town bearinp-south-west-bv-west. They
will then ie in a -fair way for the bar. If to the westward,
run -to the eastward until the town bears as rfbove.
In conclusion, Jet me remark, that .we have now a first-
rate pilot beat constantly on the -look-out for vessels near-
ing land. GEORGE .SIMPSON,
Pilot of the Port of Galveston.

gion of education and intelligence. JVIormonism has made
some converts; (he authorship has been distinctly traced j
out It appears that the portion of-the work to which
the literary merits of the' production are confined,
was written originally by the Rev.-Mr..43paulding, a New
England clergyman who had removed with his family to
North Salem.an Ashtabulacounty,.Ohio. In thattown-
shipare many remains of ancient mounds, fortifications,
&c sufficient to show that it was once the.se.it of empire
of a powerful people, long-since extinct It was the oc-
cupation of Mr.-Spauldinjr for many years, to write a fan
ciful history of-this-nation; and his plan was to adopt an
ancient style, and write as though he were himself one ot
the long lost race. The style of the Old-Testament was
adopted: and work, purely a creation of the imagination,
was occasionally read to parties of his acquaintance.
At Pittsburg, (Pa.) whither Mr. Spauldingand family
subsequently removed, the Manuscript was read by his
friends, and was forsome time-in a printing office in which
Rigdon, who figured largely among the earliest Mor-
mons, -was employed. It is thought he copied it at that
time, which was between lfc12and 1&16, at which latter
date Mr. Spaulding died. The manuscript fell into the
hands ofhis widow, and has been carefully preserved.
On the attempt to get up a Mormon meeting in Ohio, the J
old acquaintances there ol the author, recognize-i nis

was present at the first reading of the pretended Bible,

returned to New England, for a comparison of the work;

marriage became Mrs. Davison, gives this information in

B. He was in life a practical philosopher, and many a
delightful proof ol it will I, one of these days give you, for
he .loved to-he open in all his thoughts and actions to all
his friends. Well then, hp had a son in London, in em-
ployment which brouyhtiiira a moderate income, even for
a smgle,man,.but he was young, andthere were hopes of
progressive improvement The youth i fell-in love with
the daughter of the woman with whom he lodged this
was a very hot fit and of this there is almost alwaysl
sure to De a coin nt, ou; n comes Irequently-too late, when
the remedy taken piwes worse than the disease. ,The
good father iad ever encouraged candor, and his children
were as open hearted and minded as he was himself, so
the affair was soon communicated. And what, think you,
the father did.' opposejns son s love? not he; he took
a wiser course, entered into schemes, made calculations for I
him; in the most friendly manner,. of expenses, in detail, '
the youth never thought of, by the day, by the week, by
the month, by the year. And all "this was done during a
walk they took together, wdenthe father said they might
as well go and look for a house for hinuand hi3 wife to
live in. '-Of course," said he, Vyou must choose oneac-
cording.to our calculations; and'you will not think of en-
tertaining, or even visiting your friends A, IJ.'C. D, &c.
ahdVI dare say you'li'pe very happy. -Love, my dear
boy, is every thing, though it be not handsomely lodged"
and j'ust then, in a nairow passage,.which could neither
be called street, lane nor avenue; the father suddenly stop-
ped, (not arrested by the perlumed air .of Cupid's roses,)
in front of a low-house, not remarkable for neatness, nor
even cleanliness,' but the operational tne lauer was going
on For then, atlhe door was .a laborious mother wash
ing her two dirty"children, paddling at her feet, and the
endofacradlejust.p'eepedinjitthe back ground. ''There
now, my dear boy," said he, ''the rent of just such a house
would exactly suit, your means." "Don't say another
word about the matter," said the shamed -youth, "I see it
won't do." and so they went homewards, and in the way
took another lodging, the cold fit being pretty strong up-
on him; and he told me since, that for a year or two,
whilst he lived ureally "single blessedness," he never
saw a pretty face that would otherwise have fascinated
him, but he saw in the 'back ground of the picture, the
very scene his father bad pointed out to him, and then, in-
. voluntarily set himself running through the catalogue of
items of daily, weekly, monthly, yearly expenses, and at
such times the following lines of the modern poet were
constantly ringing in his ears:
J'Love in a liut, with water and a crust,
Is Love, forgive us! cinders ashes, dust."

TTO THE PUBLIC.
HE first article inserted, is a correct copy of a communica-
tion which appeared in the " Star" of yesterday; and to those
who are willing to estimate character by its s-le merir,-we leave '
the case of Hiram Atkinson, his legal Adviser, and A F Wood-
ward. "NOTICE is hereby given to the whole world, in order to
' 'prevent frauds, that A F Woodward, who has officiously pub-
lished himself as my general agent and attorney, thai he, the
"said A F Woodward was never authorized by me to make such
"a publication:" that the only power ever executed by "me to him
"was merely to transact, in my absence, the private business
"which I wished settled in H .uston and that is hernby revok-
"ed, annulled and made void, &c. &c.
Now it will appear that the revocation of the Power of Attor-
ney given and confirmed to" A F Woodward, from Atkinson,
has i ever been annulled before the 10th inst. by his own publi-
cation, in the St lr of yesterday for no other expression accom-
panies it butthat"the said poweris hereby revoked;" not was re-
voked at a certain time. And proof ample and indisputable is
at Mr. Woodward's call, to sustain the tact uf Mr Atkinson's
last and recent conversation with him, in which the- Power of
Attorney was considered to be in full force, and .to continue so
Again, the notice of vesterday expresses that the Power of at-
torney was to "settle private Business in Houston," &c. 1 fancy
that a general Power of Auorney, as the one copied for the pub-
lic pel usal, below, will annihilate forever the statement of fraud,
if one so Justin his intercourse wilh the wprld as A F Wood-
ward is kuuwn to be, requires snch evidence; and that a spe-
cific power would hae been granted fur "private business," in-
asmuch as Mr. Atkinson read it over and over in presence of the
highly reputable wilnesres whose names appear to the instru-
ment in question. But no-wc give factsrand fact; only and
a' full, unrevoked transfer was made by Atkinson to Woodward,
of the property, for which, under every circumstance, Wood-
ward would have.been liable for on account. And this instru-
ment was in full force and effect unto the renunciation ofAtkin-
son, in the public paper of yesterday. F.aud, we appiehend, is
a lerm misunderstood by all on the other side and tfrrsjsnot a
solitary instance of error from exparle hearing of a case. T'hen,
as one of the counsel of Mr. Woodward, weleave the matteMu
the world, and rely wilh perfect security on its judgeme'nt,-
whether the article in the "Star" be the offspring of malevolence
or ignorance of facts, as the subjoined Power of Attorney will
evince HENRY THO UPSON,- Pro Pel.
