Later from Texas.

--By the latest arrival from Texas at New Orleans we have the following items:

Firing into a Federal Vessel.--The Houston Telegraph learns from Col. Richardson, who has just arrived from Corpus Christi, that a Federal bark came in range of the guns, off Pass Cavalla on the 8th inst., when some sixteen or seventeen shots were fired at her, some of which, it is thought, struck her, as she soon got out of range. She neither replied to the battery or showed her colors, and on the following evening, when Col. Richardson left, was still cruising off Pass Cavalla.

Fatal Accident.--Mr. Benj. Wrigley, a clerk in the Houston Telegraph office, while out riding on Sunday last, was thrown from his horse and killed on the spot.

Indian News.--The San Antonio News copies the following extract from a letter received in that city from Judge Hyde, dated San Elazaro, Nov. 26:

‘ The war news is very rumorous; a party of men went from this place some fifteen days since, in pursuit of Indians that had come in and stolen some sixty-five head of cattle and horses, and followed them to their ranchero, killing thirty-two and taking three prisoners--two boys and a girl. Our party had three killed.
