The merchants of this city have decided to despatch
a trainvef wagons for Chihuahua by the Way of Pre-
sidio Rio Grande onor- about the first of December
next and will invite merchants and traders centrally
to accompaay tbem. The train will be undertho di-
rection of t3en. Cazneau who will. tales up a very
lares stock of goods which he is now selecting in the
North for that market. As it is the intention to open
the road for permanent trade with Chihuahua and to
hare the first train as large as possible invitation is
held out to all who-may wish to join it.
To those who have been seeking a new route to
hihuabua an opportunity is here presented by which
they can satisfy themselves that from Corpus Christi
must thttiftabssful trader s:art. In view of this
lose whtPmay wish te go up in an observative ca-
icity can take with them a small stock of goods
ilh which to defray expenses and if desired
isportation will bo furnished here. In fact wagons
ill be in readiness for the accommodation of any
art who -may not be prepfed to furnish their own
W invite the attention of thosr who have been in
the habit ofjjoing to Chihualiua by the long route from
IndepenWnce to this expedition. Let them go or
srnd sonle one with this train in December and they
.will at etice see the folly of continuing the old route.
Chey v4l see that they cannot compete with traders
'who neeaj.but one shipment of goods by water and
whose roatj by land will be but little over oni-focrtii
as much asj the old route. These advantages are too
palpable to' bo neglected and those who may be4oth
to take ouy word for the distance of the Corpus
Christi route have an opportunity presented them
h by the departure in 'December of judging for them-
selves. Another enterprlzing gentleman and successful
merchant who has engaged in this trade to Chihua-
hua is -Mr. Mann of this place. To most of our
readers' he is well J;nown as a successful trader
with (the Mexicans. He was a swler'for the army
frT:long time and thN in addition to bis Mexican
trade has plared him &fa position from which he
can wield a constder.ible capital. With the com-
bined energy oihimjelf and Cazneau we cannot
doubt their .success in any undertaking.
Those in othei Slates of the Union who may de-
sire detailed information on the subject can obtain
it by consulting Gen. Cazneau now in the North;
er if they will address the editor of this paper he
will take pleasure in imparting it.

The IVuails. There must be a general derange-
ment of the en tire mail system throughout our State.
for the papers of every section are complaining.
The inconveniences resulting from the lack of a
route to the new counties on the Rio Grande are
not only ieh by the inhabitants and merchants there.
but here also. The merchant or trader on the Rio
Grande who wishes toconfei with those of Corpus
Christi has to send a special courier and vice
versa. The present rapid increase of population
in those counties demands a regular communica-
tion and as we remarked in oar first number Mr.
Johnson would do well to look to it.
TaAirtPORTATi09 to THt Rio Grakde.' The atten-
tion of the citizens and 'trtders on the Rio Grande
and of shippers in New Orleans and other places is
called to the Corpus Christi and Rio Grande Lines of
Transportation whith will be at once established from
this point. By thir means we will be brought in di-
rect and regular communication with the most impor-
tant trading points on the frontier of Mexico and the
advantages to tracers exceed any thing that has ever
been held out
By the river it is dangerous vexatious and costly
in the extreme ttended with the greatest uncertainty
as to time of dHivery. A New Orleans merchant in
shipping for stance to H. Clay Davis1 place via
the Rio GranrV pays a heavy freight to the Brazos
and the heaest insurance known on the coast and
if a "northr" be blowing may remain a week out-
side the brr. When the goods are landed on the
island the is storage to pay ; they are then taken to
the mouth0'" the Rio Grande at an expense of trans-
portatinn'almost equal to that from New Orleans and
there upess a steamer be in readine

w'hat i would if passed through here.

be dine expeditiously ton for so soon as the vessel

' The Cause or Ireland. Wc have remarked that
:here is not a town or villago in the United States
which has not contributed something to the cause of
suffering Ireland. Even in our new counties their
friends are up and doing. A meeting has been held
in Refugio; in San Patricio $100 has been subscri-
bed and in another part of our paper will be foim-1 a
call for a meeting on Wednesday night to bo held in

arrited ami passed through hero from different points.
