The Military.-The Charleston Patriot says:
-We now see it denied that Captain Thornton,
was educated at West Point. He is one ofthe
braye fellows, whom Gen. Jackson, took from
the walks ofcivil life, and made a Lieutenant
of Dragoons in Florida. So. also, we are told,
in contradiction of previous statements, that
en. Taylor, received none of the benefits of a
West Point education. Gen. Worth entered
the Army without having been in any Military
School, and is admitted to be one of the best
tacticians in it.
Among the appointments made by the Pre
sident in the Regiment of Mounted Riflemen,
we notice that of Thomas G. Rhett, of this
State. as Second Lieutenant.
The Washington correspondent of the Char
letton Patriot, says:-"T'he Supplemental
Bill to the Army which ha- passed in the Sen
ate, instead of volunteers being allowed to rc
ceive money or clothing, they are compelled to
receive three iollars and fifty cents a month in
lieu of clothing. A very liberal allowance is
also made when called into service, they are
'entitled to receive 50 cents in lieu of subsis
tence a day, and 25 cents for twenty miles,
from leaving their home to the general rendez
vous, aad back to their homes.".
The Charleston Courier, in speaking of the
Proclamation of 11is Excellency, the Gover
nor of this State, in reference to the Volunteers
to be raised in South Carolina, has the follow.
--We understand that it is the intention of
the Governor to give every section of the State
an equal chance. and that the selection of the
officers will be left to the men enrolled.

Grenada, Miss., destroying every thing with
in its terrific sweep.

o gie the full particulare of that dreadful vis

The wvidth of the hurricane was about 500

100 yards wide.
The number of houses destroyed by it in the
village, of Grenads, was 112, seventeen of
which, were faimily residences, and one of
which was a Baptist Churzh which cost 9000
A committee delegated for 'that purpose, in
the village in which it.wrought such terrible
Sdestruction, reported the loss of property oc
casioned by it, to amount to 70,000 dollars..
The loss of life icr shat place and its vicin ity
was also ascertained to amuont to 21 killed,
besides 64 that'*ge wounded.

into the forest which covers the Muatamouras
road. When near-lhe s~ot where I now

a ravinme crossing the rond had heedi occu.

mediately ordered a battery of field artil
lery to..sweep the position, Oanking and
sustaining it by the 3d, 4tih, and 5th regi
ments, deployed jas skirmishers to the right
and left. A heavy fire of artillery -and of
musketry was kept up for. sditie time,
until finally the enemys baiteries were
carried in succession by. a squadron of
dragoons, and .the regiments of infantry
that were ou the ground. He was soon
driven from his position, and -pursued by
a sqtudaoon of dragoons, battalion of arti

WAR WITH THE INDIANS.
We had a conversation with General
Morse, ofNatchitoches, last evening. He
left that town on the 20th inst. with the
volunteers who. dir.iied yesterday on the
steamboat Cora, Previously to the start
ing of the boit, a Mr. Gardner, from the
town of Sabine in Texas, arrived there.
He stated that before he left Sabine, an
express arrived from the northern frontier
with a call.,fron the authorities on the
county of Sabine, to raise forthwith a
company of mounted men, and send them
on to defend the frontier of the Indian coun
try against the Cherokees .%ho were up in.
arms, or from whom. at loat, hostilities
were anticipated. The express rider in
formed Mr. Gardner that he left a similar
order for another company of mounted
men.--with the authorities of the town of
St. Augustine as he passed there. There
was great excitement along the In
dian frontier. Mr. Morse says that he him
self conv'ersed with Mr. Gardner, and has
implicit confidence in his veracity.

Thera is now gotod reason to believe
that the Cumanches will he well repre

here the latter part of last week, and to

itiener of the Delaware tribe, catme in
Iwith a large brody of the Cumnanches,
hteatded by old Mopecho'copee. a celebra
ted civil chief, besides Yellow WVolf, Bear
Tpail, Satnta Anna, and other war chiefs of
distinction. Tlhis latter chief is a fine,
portly looking fellow, weighing over two
hundred pounds. atnd with a coutntenance
expressive of both good humor and good
nature.- They say, however, that' he is
one of. their fiercest and most relentless
warriors. They all came in, Mopeeho-.
copee taking tlhe lead, in regular -order,
ldlowed by a raft of women and children
all mounted, anti I would not have missed
the spectacle otn any account. The women
sat on their horses fearlessly, and astride
after the manner of their lords and nras
ters, while thme childlren were hanging oti
anywhere and every where; and as well
might one undertake to shake a squirrel
from a limb as one of those small speci
meus ofthe genus Camanche from their
horses. -The women at ence struck the
camig arranged all the buffalo skin wig
wamns, brought water from a delicibus
spring hard by. built fires, and in -half an
hour's tirne all were feasting themselves
upon buffalo meat, the lean part boiled
while the fat they swallowed raw as we
would bread. I had never before seen these
wild people while quietly encamped, and
wace hir household and domestic
manners with much interest.
Many of the more noted-chiefs paid an
early visit to the quarters of Gov~. Butler,
who has been very unwell for several
weeks, but is now alowly- teeovering.
While there they had a smoke iand a short
talk, appeared friendly enough, and after
the visit was over stalked of to their quar
ters. I noticed that the plainest dressed
man among all the Camanches was old
Mlopechocepee himself, for be had nothing
on but a course tow shirt ; the younger
chiefs, were rigged out in all sorts of fancy
and painted in colors the most fanciful.
There was a wonderful lack ofmnhstantiaj,
dress, however, and I could aoi help
ttiuking of the summer costume. of the
Georgian, who arrayed himself simplg ,in
a shirt collar and pair-of spur., and also .

also be alloted to the smaller tribes, all of

probably with good reason. The Con

exertion to make an effective treaty with
the wild prarie tribes, have encountered
difficulties innumerable, and delays which
have taxed their patience to a degree ; yet
