From Texas.

Houston, Texas, May 13th, via Summit, May 28.
--Col Griffin, with a force of 200 sharpshooters and a battery of artillery, surprised two gunboats, the Granite City, No. 8, iron-plated; and the Wave, No. 8, tin-clad, in Calcosia Pass, on May 6th.--We captured both. The Yankees had to send the boats a core to surrender. There were 160 prisoners captured, 16 fine cannon, and no end of stores. On the 9th, a Yankee sailboat was captured at Calcosia, by Major McReynolds.

Affairs in Northern Mexico all quiet. On the 23d of April the Yankees landed a force of 300 at Lavaca and set fire to the town. Several blocks of buildings were consumed.
