Trade on the Rio Grande.

--The Lavaca (Texas) Gulf Key says:

‘ A brig arrived from New York at the Braz's on about the 1st inst, with an assorted cargo of merchandize, partly for Matamoras and partly for Brownsville. She left New York on the 28th of August, "Old Abe" issued his proclamation forbidding traffic with "Mitamoras, in Texas." This vessel put in Nassau, New Providence, and obtained British papers.

’ From Mr. Chas. Price, who has just returned from Matamoras we glean the above information. He also states that two more vessels are expected from New York, with valuable merchandize, who will, to doubt, obtain English papers, and will endeavor to obtain cotton for a return cargo. These vessels are to all intents and purposes, lawful prizes, and should never be allowed to return. The matter should be looked into, and any person in Brownsville who receives goods from an enemy should be considered as a traitor and treated accordingly.
