A party of Mexicans, under the leadership of a half-Indian, named Munoz, invaded the State of Texas, and stole forty horses and fifty head of cattle from a ranche in Zapata County. Demand was made through the United States military authorities for the arrest and punishment of the robbers by the Mexican officers, and also for the restitution of the property. Governor Lopez, of Tamaulipas, had the criminals arrested, but they subsequently escaped. The property was never returned.--Brownsville Flag.

The United States Provisional Court for the State of Louisiana was opened at New Orleans, with the reading of the order from President Lincoln, establishing the tribunal and appointing [30] Judge Charles A. Peabody to preside over it.--The Union army, under General Sherman, made a concerted assault on the rebel works at Vicksburgh, Miss., and after a desperate contest, were repulsed at all points with great loss.--(Doc. 91.)
