A letter from Corpus Christi, dated on the
17th inst., is published in the Houston Telegraph. We give
the following extracts:
From four to six vessels arrive daily at
Corpus Christi, and their cargoes meet with a ready sale. The Mexican
traders feel secure, and come here in large numbers, always leaving the
specie for what they carry off.
Four of the finest horses belonging to the
company of Capt. Bell were stolen on the night of the 6th
inst. The company went in pursuit of the thieves on the following
morning, but little hope was entertained that they would be recaptured.
