' Ami ii e arv not very roucn mistaken. Mr. Vance waa a warm friend to th Sink of the United States, and continu ed t u the day or hie death; will the editor of the Spectator venture to call tuna a Bank Whig? We have en nwny mor tifying examples of the versality f the human mind; but we never had cause to doubt the etable pnnciplea of Oartlett Yancey.

The bill to increase the capital of the Girard Rank in Philadelphia, after paae Ing both houaee of the Legislature of Pennsylvania, waa vetoed by the Gover nor, aod returned with hia objections; bat being again passed in both houaea by the required majority of two thirds, it haa become a law. The vote in favor of the bill on the second passing waa greater than the firstbring in the House 81 to 38. and in the Senate 25 to 0. From this it would appear that the eierrise f the veto power ta not very palatable in republican Pennsylvania.

On the 8tli a negro man was sent over the river, who had a wife amon the hostiles. with orders to account for his appearance among them in any way he might choose; to see and talk with them; to ascertain their location and wiahea. The 9th he did not return, and much doubt prevailed as to the position and dU position rf the enemv. On this dav the 9th Gen Gainea thouvht oraoer to deli r. l r ver the command over to General Clinch. We all regretted, md jet were pleased with, the change: regretted to Ioe the pre. senea of a tried. experienced and pallant uenerai, whose deportment eomrmndd respect, whose judgment insured eoi:h deuce, and whose mild and amiahle man nere won the affectionate regard of eve ry one; out ii a change was deemed a public duty, to whom could the command be assigned with so much satisfaction to his troops, aa to General Clinch, who came nobly to their aid, with all the de spatrh and all the assistance in his now er, and whoe manners were an index of of his generous and heart ennobling qua lilies? General Clinch, for reasons assigned in orders, directed a movement to this place, to commence on the 10th inst. at 10 o'clock. In the midet of a heavy rain the march commenced, and the troi.na I moved about seven miles and encamped. tm !. .1. .

They stated that thirty had been killed in the several banlex'on the With lacoochce within the 27th of Februarv and 5th of March. It must be observed that no terms have been offered the Indi ans; and although there ran be no doubt of having been broken in spirit, it is yet to be seen whether they will sutler the dicta tion of terms which it is understood are to be imposed on them. It is certainly known through the negro man that they do not w inli to go west, and they may refuse to comply with a requirement to oo so. Ei tract of a letter dated Camp Allison, near Frt Brooks. March 13 1836 On the eve of the 9th inst. our spies came in and reported an assemblage of Indians of about 1000, ten miles S. W, of this place.

Gaines tasiied an order on releas ing Ins command lo Gen Clinch, in which he speaks in the most glowing terms of the conduct of the Troops under him The folio iiu is an extract: The commanding General cannot con sietemly with his views of propriety, take leave of the troops by whom he has been so manfully sustained, without ten dirmg them hia grateful acknowledg inents fr the con latency and courage with which thev have performed every duty, and borne privations, the recital of which would not tail to command the ad miration of the virtuous and wise of eve ry section of the Republic. All did their duty cheerfully and gallantly, and when it became necssary to meet the qoeslion. whether lo eat the meat of their own hor ses, or to abandon an important position, all cheerfullv preferred this mostunpleaj sant subsistence to any movement that would endanger the frontier. The horse meat a as accordingly eaten by officers and men, until the enemy was beaten and sued for peace. 1 he General deeply regrets the fall of 1st Lieut. J. F. Izard, of the Dragoons. acting Brigade Major, and ia command oi the advance guard. He fell at the head of his corps, and though mortally woun ded, bad the heroic presence of mind to order " Keep your positions, men. and lie close." Lieut Duncan, 2d Artillery, was slightly wounded. Capt. Sanders. commanding the friendly Indians, was severely wounded. Captain Armstrong, of the United States transport schooner Motto, was slightly wounded. iThis of ficer and twenty-nine N. C. officers and soldiers of other companies of the Regi ment, evinced their gallantry by their good conduct as well as by their honora ble wounds. The General is convinced that he never commanded a finer corps its Chief would do honor to any service. TEXAS. I Extract of a tetter from a gentleman residing in teats to bis iricna to new urieans. " By the latest information, Santa Ana ! waa upon the frontiers, with from 6 to , 8000 men, and was determined upon the extermination, or expulsion of the whole population of Texas. In his first essay to effect this object, his vanguard, com manded by Cos, made an assault upon the Alamo (the citadel) of Bexar, and was repulsed accounts say with the lose of 500 men; but if we make due allow- : ances for exagerationa, the Mexican loss ' will probably turn out to be some fifty men.
