March 3, 1846


The “Army of Occupation” still remained encamped at Corpus Christi as late as the 19th inst.  There were rumors afloat that some of the reconnoitering parties sent out towards the Rio Grande had met and had a brush with the Mexicans, but these reports were not credited.  The publication of the Corpus Christi Gazette is to be continued after the removal of the army.
