Oar Mexican Frontier.
The country has, for some time past, bean
agitated by various rumors with regard to the
inroads of Cobtinas upoa our Texan fron
tier, and the attitude assumed by Governor
Hoistou in relation thereto. Oa the 23d ol
February, the Senate, by a resolution, called
upon the President for information relative to
the state ef affairs la that quarter, aad on the
sth of March the President transmitted the
information required. It consists of a synop
sis made out by tbe Secretary of War, of all
ths official intelligence which he had received
respecting the matter in question to thesth of
March, la addition to the documents from
which such synopsis was made. From this
communication we learn that the case smnds
thus, at present.
on the sth day of February, 1659, General
Twiooe, commanding the Military Depart
ment of Texas, with tbe approval of General
S< hit, but without the sanction of tbe War
llepariment, directed the abandonment ot
three post* on ths Bio Grnade, each of
which had a garrison of a single company, to
wit: tort Blown, Fort Mcintosh, and King
gold Barracks. Having learned that tbe De
partment disapproved of this movement, Gen.
Twiotis on tbe 2>ih March, 1-59, addressed a
letter Iroin Sau Antonio to the Adjutant
i lener.il, in explanation of the causes which
induced bim to make it. He had an extensive
frontier io protect, and few troops to doit
with. He therefore determined to withdraw
the companies from the Bio Grande, and place
tbem ou the frontier. The enemy would never
crossover tbe river to our side, whereas, on
the frontier they were continually harassing
and pluuderiug our citizens. Tbe outcry that
had be«u raised by the abandonment of the
]H>sts on tbe river, was nothing unusual. Posts
always Implied government money and con
tracts, and it was hardly natural for the in
habitants to see these removed from the midst
ol them without making some complaint. He
concludes by saying that he had previously to
acting, submitted tbe state of tbe case to Gen.
Scott, wbo had approved of his design.
This order was not countermanded, nor was
there any reason to donbt its perfect proprie
ty, until tbe middle of October, when informa
tion reached the Department that Cortinas,
with a baud of desperadoes, bad entered
Brownsville on the 27th September, and mur
dered several citizens, besides plundering the
town. This information came from General
Twions, who had been applied to for troops,
which be promptly dispatched to the scene of
notion. Orders were immediately given to
ileneral Twiooh to reocenpy Fort Brown,
which be did as speedily as possible. As, not
withstanding, the disturbances continued to
increase, orders weie given, on the 3d of No
vember, to move a company of artillery from
Baton Bouge. This order was promptly obey,
pd, and on the 19th November the Department
received a dispatch from General Twiggs,
dated l-.'th, in which he said he had just re
ceived an express from Brownsville, announc
ing ihe entire destruction of that city, and the
murder of one hundred citizens by Cortina*,
aud bad, in consequence, ordered seven compa
nies of foot and two of horse to take the field
immediately, under tbe command of Major
II kist/kljiak. Upon receiving this alarming
intelligence, orders were immediately given
to Colonel Simmer to send three companies of
artillery and three of foot from Fort Leaven
worth, and the Commandant of Fortress Mon
roe was also ordered to send on six companies.
lii the meantime, a second report, dated No
vember 21 st, was received from Gen. Twiggs,
-luting that the rumors were false in a great
degree, aud that he had countermanded the
troops.
While these events were in progress, tbe
difficulties with which tbe case was surround
ed became more perplexing every day. It
seemed impossible amidst the budget of con
flicting statements that reached the depart
ment, to ascertain the true character of the
warfare which Cortinas was waging. At one
time he was represented to be a Mexican ban
dit, fighting for plunder, and at another a citi
zen of Texas, prosecuting a private feud,
" backed and opposed by citizens of bis own
State." (if oue thing, however, there could be
so doubt nt all, and that was that feelings of
the most deadly hostility existed between the
Mexicans and Americans on the border, and
that it was imperatively necessary to concen
trate as large a force as could be spared from
other important points upon the Mexican
frontier. The quarrel, whatever may have
been its origin, or whoever were the original
parties to it, at length assumed formidable
proportions. The band of Cortinas, swelled
by constant accessions, became at last five
hundred strong. With this formidable force,
ths chief, or bandit, or whatever else it may be
proper to call him, took post on the American
.-ide of tbe river, iv a strong position, and
keeping up a constant intercourse of friend
ship with the Mexicans on tbe other side, ha
rassed the citizens of Texas without intermis
sion. Topntanend to the alarm which his
presence and attitude necessarily occasioned
among the American settlers, Major Heint
zblm an was sent in pursuit of him, with
150 regular troops, and 180 Texas volunteers.
On the ith of December last he fell In with
him, having under his command upwards of
five hundred men, in a position so strong that
he apparently believed it impregnable. Not
withstanding the inferiority of his own num
bers, Major Hkintzblman instantly attacked
him, and American valor proving, as it always
has proved, too mncb for Mexican endurance,
he succeeded in routing and dispersing his ban
ditti afier a sharp but short conflict,in which
BO ol them were killed. Cortinas, leaving
his guns, camp equipage and munitions of war
behind bim, fled precipitately to tbe Mexican
shore, where he rallied the remnant of his
forces, aud where be still remains, firing at
»cry American who shows himself across the
river, and otherwise annoying them as far as
lie can, in defiance of the Mexican authority.—
At this critical point in tbe progress of the
trams, old Sax Houston steps upon the stage,
md his attitude is such as to command the at
tention of the audience in an instant.
His first step was to send commissioners to
tbe frontier, to examiue into the state of af
fairs there: his next to send their report to the
Secretary of War, with a request, which
sounds very much like a demand, for tbe aid
of theOenera! Government. Tbe Texas Treas
ury, he says, is empty, her Indian troubles are
greater than they ever were, and forays are
constantly made from Mexico upon her South
ern border. His situation, as Governor, it
may be presumed, therefore, is no bed of roses.
Me is desirous, to avoid any course which may
raise a question as to its propriety. Never
theless, in a short time, he may possibly be
•anapelled by the urgency of circumstances
u> protect the citizens of the State in the heat
manner be can. He will still defer to the ac
tion ol tbe General Government; but new
nud startling events are occurring every day
aud he knows uot how soon he may feel it his
duty to repel foice by force. la that case he
shall take effectual measures to prevent a re
eurreuce of tbe aggressions he complains of-1
•Texas," be says, "can, and, if appealed to
will, muster iuto the field io,onu meala thirty
days, wbo are anxious, embarrassed as are her
finances, to make reclamation upon Mexico
for all her wrongs!" There to no mistaking
such language from such a source. It must
not be forgotten that this to leap year; the
year when young ladies and Presidential can
didates are supposed to be prone to forget that
the blessings they respectively desire above all
others iv the bottoms of their hearts, are
neither to besought nor rejected. In their sev.
eral positions. A march upon Urn Bio Grande,
a brilliaut victory, ibe capture of Zacatacas,
perhaps of Mexico itself, would make the for*
tuue of tbe soldier who should successfully
conduct tbe enterprise.
The whole question is now before the Senate.
It certainly is incumbent upon ovary inde
jieudeut State to restrain it* citizens from In
roads opou other Independent States. If tbe
State to which the marauders belong have not
thspjwer thus to restrain them, then the State
i|poo whom they depisdaie must unqnesiiou
-0,1 y t«k«- ibe matter in her own hands. V/e

superior to all that GaoTir* ar Pt?rr«w
nonre can teach. The principle, so far as ths
policy of this country is concerned, may be
considered as having been settled by the fail
ure'of the attempt to impeach Gen. Jaouson
for bis conduct In the Seminole war. That
ofllcer, it is well known, violated ths neutrali
ty of Spain, by punning the defeated Beml
noles into her territory. The defence was
that the Seminole*, after committing ravages
upon our borders, escaped Into tbe Spanish
territory, where they lay protected by the neu
trality of Spain, until tbey could recruit and
rally for another excursion. Jackson re
solved to take the matter into his own hands.
He marched into the Spanish settlements, and
broke up tbe nest of the robbers. He was ac
quitted of all blame in the premises, and since
th lfti l na * be * n an '* laD "* aed doctrine, that
dgH(| State must take care of its own In
dians, and not permit them to molest any other
State;" and that if any State in which they
reside be unwilling or unable to take care of
them, then the neighbor suffering from them
may do it for her. If General Twioob should
pursue tbese Mexican banditti into Mexico,
and capture and hang every rascal of them,
be would be acquitted of all blame by the
popular voice. It old Sam should do tbe same
"on State account,''or on his own responsi
bility, we know not what might happen; but
the Presidential candidates can give a very
shrewd gness.
The Clay fitutue.
We have already apprised our readers that
the inauguration of the Clay statue will take
place on the 12th of April, the birth-day of the
illustrious statesman, and that Benjamin
Johnson Babboi'B, of Orange, will be the
orator of the occasion. It will be a great day,
and there will be a great oration. Within a
short distance of each other, in a region of Vir
ginia which bas been fruitful of great men,
live two of Virginia's most illustrious sons
one, Wm. C. Bivbs, now in a hale and honor
ed old age; and tbe other, Henj." Johnson
Raiukh r, still a yonng man—both living in
retirement, enjoying the independence and dig
nity of that private station which, in tbese
days, is emphatically a "post of honor;" eith
er of them capable of administering the Presi
dency of the United States; neither of tbem.
upon their fine farms, and in the possession of
their ewn self-respect and the confidence and
respect of all who know them, having occa
sion to covet any earthly rank or position.—
That such men as these are not called
upon to serve their country, is more their
country's misfortune than their own.—
It is something to have the privilege of some
times hearing from the Evbrbtth, the Clhh
ino.s, theBtVESKS and Barbour*, if it be only
orations upon subjects of national interest; to
listen, amid the clash and din of party and
section, to their words of counsel and cheer ■
to catch a glimpse now and then, amid the
midnight storm, of the rays of the light-house,
showing to distressed mariners the course to
a safe haven. Therefore, we shall welcome
with great pleasure to Richmond, upon the
occasion to which we refer, Brn.iamin John
son Barbour, one of the finest orators and
scholars now living in Virginia, a gentleman
who thoroughly appreciates the character of
Hknp.v Clay, and who can convey to others
his own glowing impressions and exalted ideas
of that great statesman in " thoughts that
breathe and words that burn."
The inauguration of the Clay statne will
probably draw together a crowd of strangers
from Virginia and probably from other States-
In bis adopted home in Kentucky it is looked
to with much interest, both on account of the
illustrious subject and of tbe artist, who is a
native Kentuckiau.
l.ibeU on the South.
The New York Mrtrrtss quotes the follow
ing first rate slander from the New York
Tribune :
" The fact that we have four millions of slaves
only kept, down, as a rule, by the lash; that the
overseer's whip is as common as the cotton <r in at,
the South ; that it has ueen public l ) deflated in the
South whether it wag not more economical to ex
haust a crop nl slaves every seven years by forced
iiver-tni!—of course under the lash—rather than
treat them simply as beasts of burden who should
not tie cruelly end murderously overtasked; that
blood hounds are publicly advertised to hunt slaves;
(those of course escaping from the lash;) ail this
never excites a word of commiseration or notice of
any kind except a rihald sneer from the Express.
But it speaks according to its character, and why
should any one ask for more r"
The Express says: "We leave Southern men,
who kuowhow false all this is, to answer these
atrocious libels." Only yesterday, the writer
of this had occasion personally to become ac
quainted with one of many acts of a similar
character, which go to show how scandalously
and maliciously false is the impression of the
South which the Tribune is scattering broad
cast over tbe North. A gentleman of this city
had occasion to purchase a woman belonging
to a family in the interior, who had been com
pelled by misfortune to part with their ser
vants. The woman had a daughter, twelve
years old, and tbe gentleman, though having
no earthly need whatever of the services of
another servant, bought her also, paying «1,225
for her, simply and exclusively to save her
mother from tbe pain of separation. Such
acts, as every one here knows, are of frequent
occurrence iv tbe South, and yet tbe abolition
press publish daily such demoniacal invec
tives as those quoted from the Tribune. What
one of them ever bas or ever would put his
hand in his pocket for such a purpose I It is
but the other day that a negro boy, applying
at an abolition office in New York for a small
sum to save bis mother from starvation, was
kicked, like a dog, from the door.
The Shoemakers' Strike.
Ths Shoemakers' strike in New England is
beginning to assume larger proportions. In
Massachusetts, New Hampshire and other
States, the "Labor" is rising in multitudes
against tbe "Capital." On Wednesday nigbt
last, a preliminary sympathy meeting of the
■hoe trade was held in New York, and a great
mass meeting is to take place in the same city
to-night for the purpose of raising "thesinews
of war," for the New England strikers. The
New York Herald observes that it is not the
shoe trade alone that is affected, and will be
still mere affected by theanti-siavery agitation,
but other trades will participate in the com
mon disaster, and therefore will probably be
represented in the meeting to-night, and will
soon call separate meetings of their own. The
striks movement is not only spreading over
New England, but extending to other Northern
Slates. The shoe trade of Massachusetts is tbe
first to suffer, as is right and proper, and it
would suffer still more if tbe South should
strike a vigorous blow in behalf of its own in
terest* and independence. The shoe shops of
that fanatical Commonwealth have been, every
• ne, from first to last, perfect deus of aboli
tionism.

A Tribune Gentleman.
The N. Y. Tribune chrouicles, «ithmuch sat-,
isfaction, a visit it has enjoyed from a Virginia
negro, who, it says, " like most of the negroes
of that State, and some of the white men, was
a gentleman." We have no doubt that he was
a gentleman In comparison with the writer ot
that paragraph. Tbe fugitive negroes of Vir
ginia are natu-ally recognized as equals, by
tbe scribes of the Tribune office, and in good
manners and kind feelings are no donbt their
superiors. The fugitives from starvation in
Old England and New England, who, for a
certain allowance of bread and beer, have stip
ulated with Hoaaca Gaaaxav to laveat one
libel upoa the South for every revolution of
the press engine, may naturally be expected to
look upon a well-fed negro, who has never

»-32»~A I ARD-STEAMER CITY OF
tKB RICHMOND.—This fine steamer of the
Philadelphia line, it will be remembered, arrived
at our por< about three weeks since in tow of a
■team-tug, having broken her main shaft in Hamp
ton Roads. She was hauled out on the new marine
railway erected hy Messrs. Currie. and the broken
■baft taken out, and placed in charge of Messrs.
Flaherty, Welsh ft Co., of Rocketts, for repairs.—
These gentlemen have the most powerful blast in
this vicimt*, and hy means of v and their skillful
workmen, they forged a new end, welded it to the
massive shaft, and turned and fitted the hearings
with as much dispatch as any of the famous North
ern establishments, and quite as well. The pro
peller wheel of ths snip being found to he broken,
the ship was detained on the railway until a new
wheel could be sent on from Philadelphia. In the
meantime Messrs Flaherty, Welsh ft Co., under
standing that representations had been n-ade to
the company that the shaft was not likely to he
passed by the U. 8. Inspector of Steamboats, at
Norfolk, "because the blows had tot lieen struck by
a steam-hammer, immediately shipped the shaft
to Philadelphia,and Mr. Flaherty proceeded thither
to invite the closest scrutiny into their work. He
called together some of the most experienced ma
chinists, mechanics,consulting and practical engi
neers, and submitted the shaft to them for inspec
tion, explaining at the same tune the mode he had
adopted in welding it. It was unanimously pro

Messrs. Flaherty. Welsh ft Co. are about putting

thus prepared to do the heaviest description of re

This, together with the new Marine Railway,
capable of raising any vessel trading irom our port,
