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