Not a word by his arrival do we have from the troops at Corpus Christi, to indicate any change in the health of the soldiers, or their habits of activity.  There is not even sufficient prospect of a fight for them to talk about.  Business continues animated, Mexican traders arriving and departing freely.  The Galveston News says that Maj. Hays and Capt. McCullough, with their companies will mounted, are now on an expedition to the Rio grand.
