BRy the arrival of the steame: Neptune,
captain Rollins, from Galveston, we have
received papers up to the 2nd November.
On the 17th October, information was
ven at Head Quarters, by Mr. John W.
mith, that Gen. Woll was positively on
the Nueces, and that on the 8th he had re.
ceived a reinforcemnent of about 500. and
that all the militia of Eastern Mexico w1
ordered to his essistance, and would reach
the Nueces in less than ten days from date.
The Mexicans living in and about San An
tonia, are quite ipdependent, and directly
boast of their defence against the troops,
to wit: That Gen. Woll will came for the
remaioder of them, &c.; that contrary to
their customary hospitality heretofore ex
tended to the troops at that point, have
clandestinely drove their beef and stocks
some 25 or 30 miles south, to secure them
on their march to the Rio Grande, and
speak more free of the matter than for
merly. Mr. Smith is rully satisfied of the
fact that the enemy at the Neces will
amount to 500 or 6000 in 10 days; and
Gen. Woll has regular communication
with the Mexicans of San Antonia; that
in bis opinion they cannot any longer be
recognised even as neutrals, much less
friends. in this expedition.
About 1400 Tesian troops were assem
bled at Gonzales no the 17th October.
A letter written by a gentleman at La
Grange, under date of 25th October, says:
that there was 300 men assembled at that
Slace who would commence crossing the
' orado on the next day. The river was
,we high, and would retard the passage
.of e troops several days. Gen. Burle
ann passed through that place on the 24th
nit. on his way home, and stated that 400
troops would turn out frot fla-strop and
Travis counties, and it was believed there
would be 3.000 mea at San Antonio by the
6th of November.
A gentleman who left it,-xar on the 19th
October. says: that the spies who went in
pursuit at deneral Wool, followed the trail
ofhis army about thirty miles beydhd the
Nueces, and found carts, wagons. and ar
tietes of furniture strewn along the road.
that had been apparently left to expedite
his Bight. The spie. say that the trail
indicated that be tied with great precipita
tine. and stopped to build camp fires only
once or twice on the route to the Presidio.
Prisoners.-A gentleman from Gon
males, states that it was reported at that
place the prisoners lately captured by Gen.
Wpil, are at Santa 'Rosa. a snall village
about tifty miles west of- the Presidio. ot
amt road to Mlonterry. It is reported that
Gen. Wool mentioned, just berore he left
Bxear, that they would probably be re
leased in two months, or as soon as news
cosid be received from Mexico. The
