Lates from Teras.-The steamer Sa

yesterday from Galveston. From ihe pa
penswhich she brought we make the rot

they give ground to anticipate a peace

Col. Warleld has arrived at Washing

road. be ascertained that they had formed
ajunction with the army, and as they
numbered five or six hundred, and he had
only sixty men, he deemed it prudent to
return to the settlements, % hich lie effec
ted wtb safety. The colonel expresbes
himself to be familiar with the country,
and that the command of Col. Saively
has also arrived in Fannin county a few
weeks since. He isabout to publisha re
port of the whole expedition.
The British sloop of war Scylla return
ed to Galveston from Vera Cruz, on the
28th uIt. She brought, as is reported,
depatches for the B ritish Mioister. at
Galveston.. It is learned by reports which
she brought, that the Texan prisoners are
to be marched to the Rio Grande in a bo
dy, and there liberated. We hope this
may prove to be true, but we have doubts
of its authenticity.
The Commissioners who went out for
the purpose of forming a treaty with the

The above singular coincidences, if th~ey
deserve to be regarded as nothing more,
would go strongly to confirm the universal
impression in the Cotton growing country,
that the present crop will not be ovecr I,
800,000 bales, and to aut horise the con
clusion that this expectation way even be
founded on. a taw of nat ure.
The unpropiteous seasonl for planting
the injury sustained by nue Cotton in its
early growth, and its consequent back
y'ardoess--the influenco these circum
stances have upon the prouuction of al
plants, not excepting this. renders it im
possible wyithotut taking in vie w the chances
oflan early frost, that a full crop of Gottor
can he made, and shr~w indeed, that it w ill
he very much less than the crop of Iast
year. If the crop he but 1,800,000O bales,
there mast he considerable improvemet
in prices. and the prospects of the planter
are cheering and should not be hastily
thrown away by a too precipitate rush
into the market. And when tho vast in
crease in the consumption which has lately
taken place (the necessary consequence of
low prices.) is constdered, is it unreasona
ble to expect that the prices of Cotton will
go to 10, to 12 cents. or even higher ?
'The great increase in this crop arose in a
mess from the large quantity of the preri
eserop held back.
B.ea' fMare.-The agent of Mr.
Bommer -a here a few days ago, and
had a heap constructed in Mr. liussell's
vegetable garden. The materials are
now rotted, and Mr. Russell invites plan
ters who may feel curiosity on thbe sub
jecr, to call aod examine for themselves.
We expressed the fearsome weeks ago,
that the process would create a stench so
og'uivo as to produce sickness. Air. It.
however, assures us that this is not the
case; that he snperintendeld this, and as.
aisted oflentimes, and that there was aot
a more strong or offeusive odor than is
experienced by being near an ordinary
smanure heap.-The offensive odor, he
says. is prevented by the materials used
with the water, lime, ashes, &c.

will prove to be of great benelit in t'.Je
South, we think. nevertheless, that it hat
snicient testimony in its favor to rendet
it worthy of investigation on the part of

to unite in purchasing the said right and
