The army in Texas.

--We learn from the San Antonic Ledger, of the 1st inst., that Col. H. E. McCulloch's regiment had gone to garrison posts on the Red river; that Lieut. Col. Baylor's battalion was to leave that day to garrison other posts on the border; that Major Waller, with two companies of artillery, McCailister's company of infantry, and Capt. Buquor's company, were marching on similar service.

Col. Young, of the Texas State troop had reported officially to the Governor respection the abandonment by the U. S. troops of Arbuckle and Washita, and of their retreat into Kansas, Fort Cobb, it was supposed, had also been abandoned.

Governor Clark, the thoughtful and resolute Executive of the State, was in San Antonic, and the citizens of the place were giving him a very warm welcome.

Lieutenant Whipple, of the third U. S. Infantry, was in bad odor. He had given his parole, before being 1st loose, to the gallant Col. Van Dorn, and violated it instantly. A letter written by him is published in the Ledger. It shows that he has disgraced the service; but no doubt he proves by this act that he is worthy of any honors which A. L. may be disposed to confer on him.
