January 18, 1846 Article 1

Corpus Christi. — We have read with great interest a letter from Corpus Christi, written under circumstances somewhat distressing, orders having just been received that the army, which was expecting orders to advance, must await the settlement of the boundary question.  Nevertheless, the tenor of the letter leads us to believe that the officers are not altogether desperate for want of means of entertainment.  We make some extracts, although in so doing we mare the spirit of our friend’s communication.  The portion we publish will be found in another column.
