Since our publication of yesterday, in
which the accounts from our correspon

I exians at Saltillo, about to be sacrificed
at the shrine of cowardice, we have con
versed with a passenger from Texas by
the New York, Mr Ed. Dwyer, of San

some new and heart cheering facts. Mr

Mexicans had planned to murder) had
just stopped before for refreshment. Mr
Dwyer learned and has no doubt of the
correctness of the information, that when
the Texians became convinccd of the in
tentions and treachery of the Mexicans,
they retired by themselves to a walled en
closure in the vicinity, determined to face
the worst. At this time the citizens of
this place considering the contest at an
end, opened their houses and shops, and
gave the soldiers whatever they wished
to eat and drink. The consequence was.
that the bulk of them got beastly drunk
aud in this situation they were ordered
by their commander to attack the outlaws
(as the Texians were termed.) The bat

seat. In August, after all the candidates
had declared themselves, he voluntarily
told a leading West Point man that unless
the east part of the county united on three
men independent of party feeling they
would be entirely defeated there then be
ing seven candidates for the house in that
part of the connty, and but three in the
south west part,and proposed that if it was
thought there were three stronger men
than him he would decline—any thing to
keep the representation in the east part of
the county. On the county seat subject
he was in favor of Madison declining to
run as a point, and uniting on West Point
as the strongest point against Franklin.
Well this was all very pretty talk, and on
account of its beauty I suppose it must be

THE LAW OF NEWSPAPERS.—We learn
from the Boston Courier that Judge Wil
liams, in a late case before the Common
Pleas, laid down the law in relation to a
question interesting to editors of news
papers. as follows:
1. Where a subscriber to a newspaper
orders it to be discontinued, and it con
tinues to be left at his residence the pre
sumption is, in the absence of any evi
dence to the contrary, that it is left by
the subscriber's orders, and upon a prom
ise to pay for it.
2. If a newspaper is left from day to
day for a person at his place of business
with his knowledge and consent, though
not his expressed consent and if he
has reason to believe that it is so left
under the expectation that he is to pay
for it in that case he will be bound to
pay for it, unless he gives notice to dis
continue it.
It is stated that upon the arrival of
Gen. Harrison at Lexington, Ky., Mr
Clay took occasion to declare publicly,
that he expected no office under the new
administration, nor would he receive any
if tendered to him. This is the course
we have always supposed he would
pursue.—3Jis. Rep.
