Later from Texas. — By the arrival
yesterday of the steamship New York, Capt. Phillips, we have
Galveston dates up to the 10th inst.
From San Antonio we learn that that
place is rapidly being improved and rebuilt. After years of doubt
and uncertainty, the inhabitants now see their way clear, and are
improving their beautiful and healthy town to a degree.
According to the Civilian, it would
appear that near 6000 emigrants arrived at that place within the ten
months ending on the 1st January last.
From the same paper, we learn that a
report had reached Corpus Christi to the effect that Chihuahua and
some of the adjoining States had declared their independence of the
Mexican Government, and are determined to maintain a separate
confederacy. This may have something to do with the recent
movements of Arista in the North.
The following notice, issued by the
new Collector, may interest some of our readers:
The undersigned having been appointed
by the President of the United States, Collector of the Customs for
the district of Texas, and Inspector of the Revenue for the port of
