Late and interesting from Texas.

--Mr. Smoot, who resides in Denton county, Texas, arrived in the city yesterday and reports that Gen. W. C. Young was in full pursuit of Montgomery and the Federal troops, and had over taken the baggage, supply and ammunition trains in seventeen wagons, which were taken possession of, together with some beeves and horses. Gen. Young had written for more troops, and 4,000 additional men responded to the call. Montgomery had evacnated Fort Ouachita, and was on his way to Fort Arbuckle. It was the determination of Gen. Young to take Forts Cobb and Arbuckle. Fifteen hundred Indians had joined his ranks. Montgomery is the Kansas ruflian and outlaw, and if the Texans catch him and his men, they will waste no powder on them, but the whole set will undoubtedly be roped.--N. O. Crescent, of Monday.
