December 3, 1845


From Corpus Christi.  —   By recent arrivals we have dates from Corpus Christi up to the 24th ult., but our correspondents all state that there is not an item of news worth relating.  All was quiet in camp, and the men were generally healthy, in good spirits, and prepared for any emergency.


It would appear that Corpus Christi is increasing very fast in population, partly owing to the number of men who have been discharged from the army.  New homes are rapidly going up, and they are even about establishing a theatrical company.  Pretty well for a place that was bu a rancho six months since.
