Wright, we have received Gal 0sion dates up to Monday. .,. be-principai news of.interest is the ac count of the proceedinsof the army ofthe other side oF the Rio Grande, It appears that the troops under Gen. Somervell tok posssesso of LAredo, a small town on the Rto Grande, on the 10th Of December. As the Texans approached the place. the few Mexican troops aMa tioned there Bed without making the least resistance. Gen. S. immediately addres sed a note to the Alcalde for ncceSaries, stating that if his requistion was complied with, the private property of the citizens would be repected. Upon this the sup plies were promptly furnished. Noiwithstandilg the positive orders of the offices. some of the Texan soldiers af torwards commenced pillaging the citi zens. General Somervell then drew up a paper, the purport of which was that no one should moles: the property ef tbe Mexicans;, This pledge was signed by between five and six hundred-tbe bal ance. numboring some hundred and fifty or two hundred, refused to put their nanes to it and have returned home. - On the same day that Loredo was cap turvdl the invading army pursued its route r .idly Jown the Mexican sido of the Rio Gi:nde :iowurds Guerrere, where it was expected they would meet with some1 lit - tde resistance. The i. tention was thou to aiIrch rapiily upon Mier, Corargo aud Reino'a, and capture thorn. By this timsie it is thtouhlit the invaders will be suEiertly reinforced to make a successful descent u'POn Matamorns. Cook, How ard, llayi. anA other brave officem are with Sutncrvell, and wo shall anxiusly wait fur the next news 'rom frontier. What has been sa long needed. a begiain -,. has been matade, and now that the war o ma siona has really comnenced, thousands will. in all probajillity, flock to the Rio lirande. rndeof the Tex an apers states that Gon. Wulf has heen compelled to send oil a lar.e portion f his best trops to put duwn the Apaches in the neighborhood of Chiituahla. several vessels, among them the ship Epro, i-m 1avtc, had arrived at Gal. veston, bringitg many passengers and a laroe amiunt of goods. f*he brig Star Republic sailed frrte Galveston tor New York on the 30th uIt. with 700 bales of cottOn.

WVe hopi they will prove trte to the fullest elteut: dates to the 7th inst,.ag sta te that in tehI.gence had been received at Washing. ten of the expiiure of Guerrero, by our troups. fa appears thait the town was tu bos a&y surprise, the Mexicans having the imrpression dlat our armiy had returned to Tlexas frua Lored.-lt is stated that the J&ineberoson the route have been well treated by our soldiers, who have in retuirn been welt received. I am sorely disappointed in not hearing of any enc'getic effurts waking in the in terior to reinforce the invading array. I hope the next arrival will bring better ne we on thissubject. A ratunor has reachted here, which I can-. not trace to any authentic source, that the troops under Somervell are surrounded by 1700 Mexicans on WVest and I200 on the East the latter between thetm and TFez u,.
