[Flakes Galveston Bulletin, IWi.
Yesterday several officers and men
from the Federal side of the Rio
Grande crossed at Clarksville during
the day, and took up quarters iii
Bagdad, apparently for the night.
Shortly after midnight, the guard at
the ferry and along the river were
surprised, captured and disarnled by
the party above mentioned. Such
lighters as were at hand were imme?
diately taken possession of, and with
them nearly the entire military force
were crossed over in two separate
bodies, making in all some 400 men,
The garrison of Bagdad, contain?
ing about 175 men, were completely
surprised and captured.
The commander of the post and
the captain of the port were taken
prisoners while in their beds. It is
said that the latter was killed and the
former made his escape. Of the
truth of this there is doubt. ' Upon
taking possession K>i the town, the
work cf pillage and plunder was im?
mediately inaugurated. Every light?
er in thc place, some thirty in number,
was taken possession of, and as ra?
pidly as each warehouse could be
gutted its contents were loaded up
and immediately crossed to the Ame?
rican side. The gun-boat Antonio
was called upon to surrender. She
answered their demand with a broad?
side which scattered the filibusterers
in a hurry. Shortly after a second
demand of the same nature was
made, which was answered in the
same manner with a like result. She
is now on lier way np the river. Ono
Austrian sergeant on the Antonio
was killed at daylight. The French
men-of-war in the harbor opened fire,
compelling the fillibusters to take
refuge in the upyer part of tho town.
The deaths are reported to be about
thirty on each side.
It is stated that the fillibusters
were under the command of Colonel
Reed, and that one R. ('lay Crawford,
being at Brownsville, upon receiving
information of the capture of Bagdad,
started down for the scene of action,
Mexicans, the invader is on your
soil with hellish designs and plots
damnable; let him be welcomed "with
bloody hands to a hospitable grave."
As tho steamer Alabama was leaving
on the 7th, it was reported that 'Jen.
Mejia, with 1,200 troops, was march?
ing on Bagdad, and that the fillibus?
ters had evacuated the town.
Since the above was in type, we
have learned that despatches have
been received by General Wright to
the effect that, after the capture, the
Mexican General Escobado, and tho
filibuster Crawford, went to Bagdad,
and quarreled as to whom had com?
mand, each officer taking his own ad?
In the meantime, pillaging and

such an extent that the officer in com?

Senator Cha.miler's Resolution on
Our War Claims Againstls|uMi
lu tbe Senate, on Monday, Mr.
Chandler, of Michigan, offered a re?
solution to tho effect that, as the
diplomatic correspondence with the
Government of Great Britain in rela?
tion to the demands of our Govern?
ment for damages committed on Ame?
rican commerce through the agency
of British subjects, or, in plain words,
tho marauding career of tho Anglo
rebel pirates, has resulted in the re?
fusal of the British Government to
satisfy om demands, the President be
requested to withdraw our Minister
from the Court of St. James and
make a proclamation of national non
iuteroourso with Great Britain. We
dare say that tho introduction of this
resolution was intended to give some
definite expression, through the
mouth-piece of Congress, to the opi?
nion which is known to exist univer?
sally with the American people upon
this question. It ./ill no doubt be
received in England as another evi?
dence that we do not intend to be
We (Slink that we already observe
some signs of a disposition on the
part of the British Government not
to permit any causes of quarrel to
exist. The London Times takes some
trouble to show that France would be
seriously perplexed to preserve her
stability and her institutions in case
of a war with this country on the
Mexican question. If France is in
danger from such a collision, how
much more so is England? Her com?
merce is larger and more exposed
upon thc seas. We could do more
damage to England in a three months'
war than we ever could to France.
Her merchant marine is, in a mea?
sure, at our mercy, and if wc were
disposed to quarrel with her, her
boasted supremacy on tho ocean
would be of short duration. France
has less to lcrso in this respect; and,
all things considered, England has
more to fear from a war with the
United States than France. France,
for example, has no Canadian pro?
vinces. France has no Fenians; no
Ireland on her border in a condition
of perpetual discontent and periodi?
cal insurrection. The warning, there?
fore, which the London Times pre?
sents to France is quite as applicable
to England herself.
The manner in which the Times
speaks of this country, in connection
with thc President's message, would
intimate that a more friendly feeling
toward this country prevails under
the influence bf the new ministry,
and we are not probably much at
fault iu assuming that Lord Claren?
don has inspired that sentiment in a
great degree. His amiable feelings
toward the United States are well
known. He has always manifested
the kindliest sentiments toward this
country. Unlike his predecessor in
the Foreign Office-Earl Bussell
Clarendon ia a statesman endowed
with broad and generous ideas.
Therefore, we are disposed to attri?
bute his part in the controversy with
Mr. Adams to a conviction that he
had a cause to defend in which neither
his head, his heart nor judgment was
enlisted, and he was glad to abandon
it, leaving the subject to stand upon
the grounds upfm which his prede?
cessor had placed it.
There is an incident in connection
with the change of the tone of the
leading British newspaper toward this
country which is not without signifi?
cance, and, as a matter of historical
interest, is worth dwelling upon. It
has beeu stated in some of the English
newspapers, the Manchester Guar?
dian among them, that Mr. Dehme,
the leading editor of the London
Times, had resigned his position in
consequence of a certain new policy
adopted by the proprietors of that
journal; and, as Mr. Delano was
known to be bitterly hostile to the
United States, and an ardent friend
of the rebellions "Confederacy," it
may be assumed, perhaps, that tho
new policy of the Times, representing
that of the British Ministry, has a
friendly tendency toward this country.
We are the more disposed to regard
such a condition of things with satis?
faction, from the conviction that there
is no disposition on the part of our
Government to surrender one jot of
our just claims in the matter of the
privateers Alabama and Shenandoah;
and the indications that the British
Government is inclined to settle all
questions amicably, if we read the
signs aright, are, therefore, worthy to
be regarded as of some importance.

COMPENSATION FOB WAR LOSSES.
Some time ago we called attention to
a movement made in Congress touch?
ing the clairns for losses inflicted
during the war by the Federal troops
on peaceable citizens of the South.
Mr. Delano, a member of the Com?
mittee of Claims in the House of
Representatives, has brought up the
subject of those losses in a spirit
which is certainly extraordinary when
it is recollected that Congress holds,
in relation to them, tho character of
a high court of last appeal. Speak?
ing apparently on the part of his
committee, he says that "the attempt
to indemnify the numerous class of
claimants would requiro more money
than the revenue of the nation could
at any time satisfy. " He, therefore,
adds that it "seemed to tho com?
mittee that the House should deter?
mine whether such claims should be
assumed." In making this sugges?
tion, however, he does not allege,
positively, that tho number of claims
actually presented point to any such
apprehension; but, on the contrary,
confesses frankly that he is unable I
to state the amount of destruction
which may be made a basis of de- I
mands for compensation. In at?
tempting thus to place Congress in
thc position of refusing to pay just
claims upon it because, forsooth, for
all Congress knows to the contrary,
these claims may possibly overrun
the means of payment is, we submit,
the suggestions of a flagrant dis?
Tho losses for which compensation
may be properly demanded by people j
at the South, do not constitute, as
Mr. Delano appears to think, subjects
of Federal "charity!" The benevo?
lence to which he refers in the matter,
has nothing to do with the disposition
of thc claims under consideration;
they are neither more nor less than
demands of right and justice. .

FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL SUMMARY.
Tho movement in gold yesterday amounted
to over $400,000, at Tuesday's quotations
35@3G. The telegraphic advices of a still
further decline at New York had no effect
whatever on tho market.
Foreign exchange exhibited a slight re?
action, and rates, towards tho close of the
day, showed an improvement of per
cent., but the movement was of a restricted
character throughout, and tho market
closed quiet at 48(<$4,J for bank sterling,
4G4@474 for clear bills, and 45?46 for bills
with documentary o-videnco attached; 3.75
@3.7G.jf, for hank franca, and 3.80(7?3.85f.
for commercial do.
Domestic exohangc was quiet, but steady.
Tho aggregate sales showed a falling off as
coniparod with Tuesday's report, but there
waa nevertheless a full average day's busi?
ness transacted, at 1 per cent, at bank,
and 14@li per cent, discount, out of doors,
for sight "checks on the Northern cities,
and corresponding ratos for short sight
and time drafts.
Sugar and molasses have boen inactive
for a few days past, owing to thc limited
character of the supply. Sales yesterday
included only some small lots of both at

Capital Invested. $14,023,000
Male Employees. 8,892
Femalo Employees. 14,780
The total value of tho goods manu?
factured is set down at little over
$54,000,000, a sum so glaringly un?
derstated as to east doubt upon thc
whole report. It is, of course, pre?
posterous, with 14,000,000 of capital,
nearly 50,000,000 outlay for raw mate?
rial, and nearly 24,000,000 hands em?
ployed, that the raw material was in?
creased in value but 400,500,000.
This is but $193 for each hand em?
ployed, which is probably not more
than half the amount paid, leaving
nothing for the enormous dividends
that were declared.
Isn't here something for the Inter?
nal Revenue Commissioner to look
into? The manufacturers have
claimed that they are severely taxed
under the Internal Revenue law, and
that a high tariff on foreign goods
must be levied to put them on an
equal footing with the foreign manu?
facturers; bid it is veiy evident that
they succeed in avoiding a large por?
tion of the taxes which the Internal
Revenue law imposed.
