Sbreadthof its extensive frontier, and the measures a

As it may be interesting to many who have friends

Two companies of the 4th Artillery. under Lieut.
Whiting, are at Brownsville; two companies of the
7th Infantry. under Major Paul, at Ringgold bar

Infantry under Capt. Wallace. at Laredo, and two
companies of the same regiment. under Cl. T.
Morris, at EAgie Pass. This constitutes the entire
thrce on the Rio (rande. but we may add that two
conpaniesof the Ist Infantry. under Capt. Prince,
are at the postat tihe head of Las Moras creek, on
the road ,roni `an Antonio. thus occupying a mon

A Terrible Duella California.
By the Santa Clara Register we are infirmed of
the following particulars t'a duel which came off in
Santa Chi. tunt!, near CMo, gsh, ad which,
in fernity and deejperation, we find no parallel for in
the State. It oceured. saysthe Register, between a
Mexican and a native Californian, about a game of
"M onte" and Colts navy revolvers were the weap.
ones taed in co4mba. Nine shots were fired, and bfor
of the ills took eatct in each of the combatants.
Both parties expired immediately, and they were
each ushepdl into the presence oftheir Maker to an
iswer for the murder of the other.
After the second or third fire the Californian crawl
ed on his hands and knees nearer his antagonist, and
l~e, in otler to make sure of his victim. The shot
took effecin the abdomen of the Mexican.
