Dispatches from Texas
say the arsenal at San Antonio
, and some forts in Northern Texas
have been seized by State troops, and some cannons at Brazos
There is no mention of Twiggs
A rumor that he had been shot by a soldier is evidently unfounded.
Councils took farewell of the President
to-day, and visited Lincoln
, who addressed them, saying he had no disposition or intention to infringe the rights of any section.
Much of the present trouble originates from our misunderstanding each other.
He trusted when we are better acquainted, we will become stronger friends.
