' d7We take the following, from letter to a gentleman of this pW.e, trom the agent of Bull & Files of Mo. bile, resident, in New York, dated, Oct 14, 1842. "Cotton has declined from Jd. to Id per lb. in Liverpool at the last advices; but from the circumstance of the low . rate of interest in England, (it being cmly 2 percent, per annum.) and the increased demand for Cotton,ii sections of Europe, heretofore, non nianufactu ring sections, and the increased de mand at the North, it is believed that ifihe nrice does not adv ance, it will go off brisker at the present quotation The same letter informs us that goods of every description can be ob tained on as liberal terms iu N.

Our neighbor "away over in the" Alabama, of the Pickensville Register, nits us up prodigously, he thinks from a few small articles in our paper nf the 15th inst., on the inequality of the present tariff in its operations, be tween the. rich and poor, and upon our adoption of the 'The Democratic Creed," from the Vicksburg Sentinel as ifor the tariff, we have nothing to say on that subject at present; but lei old father time" devolope all the ,faets. Our frind seems to think on the Subject of the banking system, and in fact comes out boldly and says, that ;wc are compelled to sustain the State hank system, particularly that of hi State, Now we say emphatically that we detest the whole Banking ayjtera, both State and United States and as for the Alabama banks, the banks that our neighbor says we are tomptlltd to suttain, we have not the Jast doubt, tf all tl rascality ef the ir(iMiiijtiUy vtntMfM'd " ' ihcpitiir j-ri -nihil d, 'uld Mr f.l i.y ifiuijr Im ! diyi t,tiM St k MkJ H".

We are not apprised of th manner in the profits of thi.i,aifl for imglil we know fciniilar transHciions are disponed of. But it is clear that the interest of the broker (and brokers regulate, the price of the hanks,) is deeply interested in depreciating Alabama money. I he brokers having unlimited control of the market at Nashville will, where it is their interest to do so, keep Ala bama money as low as possible. And while they can keep in league with the officers of the Decatur bank, under the present peculiar system nf doing business in that institution, will be able to keep our money at a rate of discount ruinous to its holders. In the language of the Tennessee Democjat, such nefarious conduc1 should receive the most unqualified condemnation and severest censure of an indignant and injured community. Thc public press should spare v.o pains t expose and hold out to pub lic indignation such destructive and shameful schemes. " TKXAS. .

Fe Rx pedition, had a brunh with Wall and hia iioopa within twenty miles of San Amo nio, east of the rler Sew illa. The Mx ieans surrounded Caldwell and hit partv which numbered about 100. .The brive fellow knew too much about Mexican treachery to surrender to them. He and his party fought bis wny through them; they killed 100 Mexicans, wounded one hundred more, and loit not a man them selves. A company of 50 men from Lnrrranee in attempting to reinforce Capt. Caldwell company, were cut oflfby the Mexicans, and 40 of them were killed, and 7 priso ners and 3 escaped. It was currently reported that Austin had been burned by the Mexicans, though it is very doubtful if such he the fact. We are pained to learn that the noble hearted young Van Ness, who, with our associate Mr. Kendall, had suffered all the punishments and privations of a Mexican captivity, was made prisoner by the Mex ican at San Antonio, where he had been adjusting the affairs of a deceased broth er, and was, with another man whose name we did not hear, taken out by order of Gen. Wall and shot down! Is there not retributive .Jnsiice for such acts of unmitigated cruelty as this' Pie. Hcalth or Mobile. The fever appears to be increasing.
