troops — Indian Depredations in Texas.

New York, March 31.--The steamship Daniel Webster reports that she landed at Fort Jefferson, Tortugas, Companies L and M, first artillery, and at Fort Taylor, Key West, Companies F and K of the same regiment.

She reports that the Indians are committing great havoc among the people of Texas, kill- ing some, and running off their stock. Maj. Libbey had chastised some of the savages.

Cortenas was understood to be awaiting the departure of troops to commence operations on a larger scale than heretofore.
