There was a copious supply of it, as though the sufferer, whoever it was, had been bleeding profusely. It was impossible to learn anything further about the matter.

The coming of the Comal, which has been taken off the Galveston line tem porarily to make an extra trip to Brunswick, will solve the difficulty, and the merobants will have no fur ther oause of complaint. The delay was due to providential causes, but the line has been prompt to make up for lost time. The Comal will ba in command of Captain Evans, formerly of the State of Texas.
