Later from Texas--another Capture by the enemy.
--From the Galveston News
, of the 2d inst., we extract the following:
On Monday last a schooner was chased in sight of Galveston
by the Sam Houston
and two of the enemy's launches, and the schooner was finally overhauled and captured about 8 A. M., and now lies as a prize in company with the Santee
, the Sam Houston
; and another of the enemy's schooners, name not known, that also first made her appearance yesterday.
We learn from a sloop that came into Galveston
on Sunday morning from New Orleans, that she sailed in company with the above schooner bound westward, and both loaded with tobacco.
They, were separated in a storm on Friday last, and the sloop was considerably damaged, and was sailing under her jury mast when she came in, escaping the blockaders.
