The grcnl event uf the Stale oC Texas of lli
present year hat been the late air held at Cor
pus Christ!. Ai it presents a very graphic pic
ture of the manners and custom, ciipobition
and amusements of the people of that great,
and growing young Gulf State, we take the fol
lowing account of the Fair from the correspon
dence of e New Orleans Delta, somewhat
condensed for our tolumns : St. Louis Daily
' - i
, . Corpus Christi, May 9, 1852.
The exhibition is held in the larjrc wore room
rf Judge Webb's brick store, and is principally
filled with Mexican manufactures, such ns sad
dles, bridles, spurs, blankets, quilts, embroid
ery work, &e. Mr. Win. Dinn, formerly the
seedsman of New Orleans, has bought himself
a farm here, and is exhibit ing his agricultural
productions, in the shape of the finest vegetables
I ctfcr" saw. Not as many Mexicans hare come
in as was expected on account of foolish ru
' mors having been spread abroad, that their stock
of joods would hV seized by (Jen. Carvnjal, who
arrived here licit week, and, it is said, intends to
address the people here. The town is very
luileh crowded. It is estimated that there ore
2.500 strangers here. Considering that this is
thp first fair held in Texas, I think it a remark
ably good showing, and could the people havs
been more strongly convinced that it was to be
a fair in reality, und not a filibuster movement
nore people from the South and North would
have attended it. Col. Kinney deserves the
highest credit for his laudable wUorls in getting
it un. The amount of silver-ware to be distrib
uted for premiums cost $2,700, and all the pre
parations for the fair have been gotten up at his
own personal expense.
The principal amusement hero is II. A. Jlal
thy's Circus, nt which Madnino Klla Nunn is
displaying her grace and skill in horsemanship.
The arena is nightly crowded, und I cannot do
belter than give you a description of the audi
ence in order to give you an idea of the most
singular combinations of people here. On the
reserved sits are to be seen elegantly dressed
American and Mexican ladies, ilirting their funs
with the same coquetry 'that they would at an op

The sports of the week commenced with a
buil-fisrht, Camarena, the celebrated htill-iWhter
of the city of Mexico, taking the field. There
was a large crowd to witness tno coniesr. i ne
first two fights the bulls were badly wounded,
but when they let in the little red biill "Colora
do," which I suppose was the same that "came
down from the mountain," Camarena found his
match, and came near twice being gored to
death. The little red bull was too much for liim,
and it was accordingly decided to make it a

off, which would have been a rare sight in the
' "while settlements," a contest for superior
horsemanship. The first feat of agility consis
ted in throwing a bull down, while running at
full speed. This was accomplished in this
wise : A bull was let out of the pen and started
down the road, when a competitor would dash
after him, and coming up, catch him by tho tail,
aud, by a sudden turn, us the animal would rise
on his foro legs, he would be thrown rolling ou
the vrnund. Shouts of laughter followed the ac-
complisinnent of this feat. Hut sometimes the
bull would make a sudden lolt from the road,
just as tho rider would be reaching Tor Ihe bull's
tail, and before he could recover himself, would
measure his own length on the ground, to the
; great merriment of the crowd.
Another feat of horsemanship was to pick up
n dollar from ofT the ground, under a lull run.
This feat created great sport, and loud cheers
greeted the victor.
The next feat of dexterity was that of riding
" a wild bull, and the little red bull "Colorado,"
was turned looso for the occasion. The feat is
effected by a sudden spring from tho ground,
and many a hard fall did the competitors receive
before any met with success. At last, bowev.
er, a Mexican triumphed, nnd such running,
roaring and pitching as followed, even made the

He considered the claims of Carvajal on the

its arms, and banqueted, while, at the same time
it had issued order to arrest the former, al

we should havo been here much sooner had we
not delayed so much time looking lifter Captain
Gardiner, a gentleman of fortune, who had
joined the ralagoiiiau Missionary Society, and
had gone to some small barren islands off tin
Horn, to enlighten the inhabitants, wild as they
were... Wc received intelligence from llio that
we were to look utter Capt. Gardiner nt the
Falkland Islands, where we proceeded, and hear
ing there that a.' vessel had left provisions and
clolhiug for him, expecting he would call for
them, we resumed our search for him to Staten,
a small, uninhabited island; thero wc found
nothing that could lead to his discovery, but a
large boat moored to a tree, and on the hill was
a llag-staff, with a piece of bed-tick for a flag.
Wc cut the name of our ship on several trees,
and got under way the next morning. , We an
chored ut Gilbert's Cove, about two or three
days' sail; there we sent boats ashore, and cut
in a tree was this inscription :
"Dig deep; vndcr this spot you will find a hotlle."
We dug, and found it, und in it a note as fol
lows: "W. Gardiner, yen izillfir.d, is at Famish
, Jlarbor, al a distance of about CO miles
i from this place.'" ,
We proceeded (hat nlaee the next morninr.
after speaking to two canoes of strange-looking
human beings, quite naked; they were painted,
and colored shells hung round them,
There were several other canoes of this de
scription of humanity in its worst form; they
caught fish and ate them raw, und subsisted on
wild herbs and roots of trees. How they could
bear the cold I cannot tell, for ten mouths out
of twelve it is intensely cold. Wc happened to
ect there in the summer. We gave them a few
articles of clothing, but they would not wear
them. Wc left them ami resumed our search
after Capt. Gardiner. We arrived at Spanish
Harbor the same evening, and sent boats on
shore as soon as we dropt anchor, and then 1 be
held a siyht which I trust I shall never witness
again. Strewed in different parts of the beach
were Capt. G. and two of his party. The first
we saw was Capt. G. in a state of decomposi
tion. Wt supposed it to be him, by their being
a watch hanging to his skeleton form, und some
distance from him there was another. We pro
ceeded some distance to a cave with a lantern;
when we entered there was a deadly smell ut
the end of the cave, where we found the re
mains of the-others, lhere was furniture and

have the clothes, &c, as they found a large chest
conlaiiunir books and ctotliing; and on the lid o
it was nailed his will, slating that the first ship
that found them should have them. We buried
them with the honors of war. Aud cut on the
wall was this inscription :
