John son, with a party of 70 men, while recon noitering the westward of San Patricio, was surrounded m the night by a large body of Mexican troops. In the morning the de mand of a surrender w as made by the Mexi can commander, unconditionally, which was refused ; but an otfer of surrender w as made ns prisoners of war, which was acceded to by the Mexicans: but no sooner had the Texians marched out of their quarters and stacked their arms, than a general fire was opened upon them by the whole Mexican force. The Texians attempted to escape, lint onlv thre of them succeeded oue of whom was Col. Johnson. Between the Uoth February and 2J March, the Mexicans were employed m forming en tienchments around tlie Alamo, and bom Larding the place. On the d March, Col. Trav is wrote that 200 shells had been thrown j into the Alamo, without injuring a man an advance guard, to protect the landing of the balance. These companies having cross ed, were attacked by a considerable num ber of Indians. A sharp contest inline- diatelv ensued. Col.

Robertson, (a boy of 1!) or 20, and who looked like any thing but a criminal,) was next arraigned, for the muider of a free negro. Robertson and the deceased, whose name was Clarke, was assisting 111 raising a log house, each carry ing up a corner. De ceased had been acting insolently nil day. A few minutes before the blow was struck, which caused his death, he had nearly thrown dow n a log, w hich had just been rais ed and consigned to their mutual care, ihpy being on opposite sides of the house. Rob ertson ordered him to get down or behave himself better. The ueoruccmuiciircd curs all told, of 07 members, of whom the names of 37 are signed to the following, and more names would have been signed, but lor the absence cf some of the members. The undersigned, members of the House of Representatives and of the Senate of the State of Louisiana, friendly to the election of Hugh L. White to the Presidency of the I'uitcd States, being a majority of that body, and entertaining a deep conviction of the iuiortancc of sustaining his claims by all fair and honorable means, deem it their du ty, before they separate, to unite iu the ex. pression of their seulimeuts on this vitally interesting subject. Relieving that an im pression lias existed in this State and else where that a majority of the Legislature of the State are favorable to the election ol Martin Van Beren, and thut such an im pression is calculated to have au important fifed, and may be used unjustly to the op posing candidates, they would have followed the course adopted by the Legislatures of other States, by presenting resolutions nom inating their candidate, but for the doubts which were fell by many of them as to the propriety of any legislative action ou the subject. In order, therefore, to correct any fab impression which may have existed, they deem it their duty, as it is their right, to unite in the declaration of their decided preference for Hugh L.
