Some ten days since we published n letter
from our Brownsville correspondent giving
news of the Rio Grande city fight between Cpr-
tinas and the American forces. We are now re-
ceiving other accounts from diflerent sources
of ihe sime fight with idditionar particulars
The Goliad Messenger of the 7th insL says a
letter has been receivedt there from Capt.
Dowd dated Rto Grande City the 29th ult and
stating that on the 24th ult. Cortina iiith
400 men bad captured that city with two
pieces of artillery. We give ihe subslanee

cultivated lands Js ten dollars and uncultiraled from
three to seven dollars per acre.
The staple productions are cotton and corn with
an average yield of abaloof the former-and thirty
bushels ot tho lat'er per acre. Vegelablea ( all
kinds flourish and the average yield or aweet pota-
toes is two hundred buahels per acre. About Jghl
acres of cotton and the same of corn is usually .iilll-
vated to the hand. Tlowing usually comm.iicca

corn which la worked from two to four times and Uld

Cora-cribs are usually built of.Iogs thecorn lining

Crops seldom suffer from droughts and the effects
can be obviated by early planting and deep pblng.
The ground Is usually plowed from four to six It dies

Labor Is chiefly slave not more than one-fojtta
part of white labor being employed In agricuiture.
The hire of alaves averages about tlT5 per aowam

their valne Is enhanced accordingly and they are
twenty-fire per cent higher now than three or four
years ago. The net value of a slave's labor hi cul-
tivating cotton and corn la about $300. A reduction
in the valne of slaves wonld greatly increase the
amount of land cultivated.

"that Ills duo lo himself to posterity as Weil as to

his subject a plain man would have a right to ex-
pect that Gen. Houston In a speech which he says

only In the case of Individual officers of rack In the
line and staff serving under him. but also to the rank.

In connection with tbe retrograde movement from
GonzaleS Gen. Houston says : "An incident that I
will mention of the most unpleasant character oc-
curred on leaving Gonzales. On that night about
twelve miles from there It was announced to the
General that the 31exlcaas would suffer; that a bar-
rel of gin and a bairelot wine had been poisoned
with arsenic and that as they cam$ to consume It It
wonld dettrovthem. I presume no man ever had
such feelings of horror at a deed being perpetrated
of this kind from which all the waters of the Jordon
could not cleanse the reputation of a Gener-tl. But
fortunately the rear guard without dlrectlou set
fire to the place on leaving It and at Peach creek
fifteen miles from that place creday dawned ex-
plosions were heard whieh produced some excite-
ment in camp where it was supposed to be the
enemy's artillery ; but the General rejoiced In It as
he knew from the difference In the explosion that It
was not arllllery but the poisoned liquor. That is
one Instance that occurred among other distressing
The assertion of the author of the "Epitome of
tbe history of Texas" that "the poisoned liquor" is
most probably a figment devised for the purpose of
giving Iht retiring Seaator fan opportunity to express
the horror his amiable sensibilities would hare felt
had ltbeenia fact. And that ef Major Heard that
he never heard one word about poisoned liquor of
any kind at Gonzales does not refute Gen. Hous-
ton's statement. Hut although Maj. Hcafd's testi-
mony dots not disprove this charge yet It must
raise a doubt in the public as regards the guilt of
the accused; because. If this "distressing event" Is
true Maj Heard ought to have heard of It at the
time it la alleged to have occurred.
It Is always difficult to prore a negative andta-
peclally la this case when the question In controver-
sy If troe transpired iwenfy.ihree' years ago. la
tbeflrit place the reader will bear In mind that all
cotempora-ieous history Is silent Id regard lo this
matter. Its credibility rests entirely on the states
ment of one witness; yet that witness a most po-
tent one indeed the General in-chief In command
at tire time and of the very troops charged with
mixing up the deadly decoction 1 the proof I ad-
duce in vindication of their Innocence Is wholly
presumptive; butau Impartial public will see that
circumstantial evidence In relation to a matter of
this kind ought to ha more we!gh than tbe state-
ments of one hundred men present at the time and
who may assert "they never heard of ll before."

planter of the lower Brazos :
W learn by a paragraph copied Into the Xew
Xoik Tribune from tho Richmond Uramluer that
Hoary Gowlnf loi-ditant Inventor of the leant
plow was arrested In Uanovar county TlrglnIatom
time aro. for tamoerlnt with negroes.
Our citizens will recollect thai this tame Henry
Cowing paid our city tsveral visits last ran ana we
believe he vat here a rw times this year. When here
ho waa trying to dispose or ths patent-right ol hut
steam plow but spent most or hit time harrangulng
small squads around the streets upon religious sub-
jects and riding a large gray stallion through town
apparently to show his gaits but most likely to show
off the rider.
The paragraph alluded to U descriptive of anoth-
er Affair and merely mentions the arrest of Cowing
aa a-parallel which leaves nt withoutanyof lh par-
ticulars further than that Cowing was arrested for
tampering with slaves and that he Is not the real in-
ventor of the tleam plow which he repreaenu. Cow-
ing Is an Englishman.
The planter tb whom we are indebted for the
above informs us that thU man Cowing was
at many of the plantations in the counties
situated on the lower Brazos and Colorado at
different times within the last two years. lie

have becu aud will be developed in consequence
thereof it is hoped leill open tit eua of the
planttn. It is now but about nine months since
Cowing left Brazoria and adjoining counties.
To what extent he may have tampered with
the negroes of our planters is not yet known
though it is reasonable to presume that he
availed himself of any opportunities offered
htm for the purpose.

ths Legislature : their assent never r.iked : their

This fact we learn from one of the delegation all

Mexican origin and a very proper gentleman ror any

how much satisfaction can Scnor Navarro give to
an Executive or the State of the local concerns of

Why substitute at a great expense and In an emer-

not ask the question. And should not an -Executive
trf Ihe State have adeccnt respect for Ihe legislative
department of the government?
Thla however Is said under the supposition that
these gentlemen have been sent to inform Gov.

When they do Importing houses agenls of foreign

The question then simply recurs upon how shall

Mardfrsly only by Interior merchants seeking a mar-

The extent of country naturally aeeklng a tupply
