alarm whatever as to the personal safety
of Col. Cross."
This high handed outrage will go far to.
bring af'airs to a crisis on the banks of the
Rio Grande. if the Mexican authorities do
not take prompt measures to restore Col.
Cross to liberty, and punish the perpetra-.
tors of the act. We have not yet seen any
