Ry a private source, we have very late
and important intelligence from Texas. We
llud that tlii! arrival of M. do Saligny, Charge
d'Allaires from the Court of I-'rance to Texas,-was
productive of immense gratification.
I lis visit was made tho occasion o( a grand
display in the shape of a largo profession, hy
which ho was met in the wild and beautiful
valley of the Colorado, some few miles from
Austin, and escorted to his lodgings by the
Mayor and Civil Authorities, (Jen.' Hender
son, late Minister to Franco and England,
tho J Ion. Secretary of War, most of the
Heads of Departments and Rureaus, and a
considerable concourse of citizens and stran
gers, ( 'J'ho torn; and feeling of the government of
Texas upon the occasion of Prance sending
an accredited uiiuiatcr to that country, mav
ho judged from the remarks in the official'
journal, published at tho scat of government,
and which may bo quoted as the language of
President Lamar himself. That paper says:
"We congratulate our fellow-citizens on
the consummation of nn event so much
desired by every patriot as that of the rati
licattoji of a "Treaty of peace, amity and
commerce'' between France and Texas;
and devoutly hope, as it is the first, that it.
may be a strong and perpelual link in the
chain of mutual friendship ami fidelity
which shall, in future, bind together the
two nations. During his visit among us
last year, M. Saligny secured the esteem,
confidence and high regard of all with
whom he was associated. His abilities,
acquirements and principles an; no less
appreciated than the liberality of his sen
timents, the correctness of his judgment,
and the urbanity of his deportment: it is,
therefore, with much pleasure, that we
welcome him to our city, and we feel as
sured that all Texas will hail, with trreat
satisfaction, his return to the Republic in
his present diplomatic capacity, as the
representative of one of the most liberal,
chivalrous, enlightened and truly power
ful governments in Europe."
Apart from the highly complimentary no
tice of 31. do Saligny, who fully merits all
the encomiums that have been lavished upon
him, the secret of this great rcjoieii.g hy the
Texians, is to bo lound in the fact that they
hope to he sustained as strongly by Franco
in the long run, as Mexico has been by Eng
land, and with perhaps much more disinter
ested motives and views.
Franco has long looked with a jealous eye
upon the movements of Croat Britain in re
lation to Mexico, and has equally long do
sired a chance to check her march of empire
in this particular portion of tho globe. Eng
land has chipped otf two or three little bits
from Mexico, and is now about to make final
arrangements for taking possession of tho
whole territory of California. Mexico hav
ing already more territory than her corrupt
and imbecile government can control, will
not hesitate to consummate this bargain with
the British. To check this, Franco rcco-r-nizos
1 exas, and sends out a minister to spur
them up, and Texa,s then lays claim to the
whole of Lower California,.
'J'ho territory of Texas and Coahuila, be
ginning at the mouth of tho Rio del .Norte,
and the Sabine rivers, and running due west
therefrom, lies between t and M degrees
of north latitude. Lower California lies be
tween '22 and :12 decrees of north latitude,
having a magnificent line of sea-board on tho
Pacific and the gulf, extending over more
than '2, 000 miles, with some of tho finest
harbors in tho world. It comprises a terri
tory of (;o,ni)0 square miles, will t 10, ('00
inhabitants. It already produces pearls,
Mines, wheat, corn, gold, silver, iron, Kc,
and great part of the soil is ery line. Up
per California, w Inch would probably go with
it, has a territory of 000,000 square miles, a
sea-board of 1,000 miles' in extent, lies be
tween :V2 and 12 degrees north latitude, and
is even a richer country than the other. Tho
whole territory of Texas and Coahuila con
tains less than '.'00,000 square miles, and its
sea-hoard is insignificant, and its harbors
I 'uder these circumstances, h possession
of California is an ohj t of immense import
ance to them, and France would go great
lengths to assist u n in obtaining this ob
ject, if it were only to act as a check upon
j Fngliind. The movements in Mexico and
I Texas therefore, f.r the next two years will
j he looked upon w ith great interest in relation
to these matters alone, as affecting the Ibr-
cigu relations ol l iance and England. And
when we take into account the connexion
bet ween the possession of ( ,'alifoi nia by Eng
land, and the disputed claim between her and
the (Jailed States in relation to the Oregon
Territory, the whole mailer In comes of im
mense interest to the people of this country.
