Doc. 76.--the capture of the Star of the West, April 20. The expedition for the capture of the vessel composed of about 80 men, under command of Col. Van Dorn, hurriedly organized in Galveston, Tex., was made up of men from the Galveston Artillery and the Island City Rifles; the Guards are Irish, and the Rifles are a German company. The party arrived at Indianola on Wednesday, and kept all ready, apparently in no manner interested in the active preparations going on for the debarkation of the United States soldiers, which was effected by the aid of the steamship Fashion, acting as a lighter to remove the men to the Star of the West, which lay outside. About half-past 9 o'clock at night Col. Van Dorn and his band quietly got on board the Gen. Rusk, and made out to the Star of the West. When the Rusk got within hailing distance, the captain of the United States vessel sang out to know who was approaching. Van Dorn replied: The General Rusk, with troops on board. T

S. steamers Fashion and United States, and the propeller Mobile, without delay placed his forces on them, and about nine n, and, consequently, that the men on the Rusk had a pretty fair prospect of a fight. The Rusk remained at anchor until 10 o'clock, P. M., when she went up to Indianola, put out her mails, and went down to Saluria at sun — up yesterday morning, when, after taking on board Capt. W. R. Bradfute, bearer of dispatches from Major Vanted himself to Col. Van Dorn, and received in reply, that the surrender had just been agreed on. Major Larkin Smith, who, we believe, was second in command at Indianola, resigned immediately on hearing of the secession of Virginia; and we learn his example was followed by some six or eight other United States officers.--Galvesto
navy-yard taken by Virginia after a sharp conflict-forty Union men killed. How true the foregoing is we are yet to learn, doubtful if we ever know the truth if depending upon the newspapers received here. It is thus that the citizens of this section are taught to believe that the Government of the United States is at an end. I send this by a friend, who will put it in the first reliable post-office--probably St. Louis. Another item has just come to hand through the stage way-bill from Indianola, on the coast, one hundred and fifty miles distant. The Star of the West, awaiting the arrival of the United States troops to embark to New York, has been stolen by the Secessionists, and the troops under Major Sibley, while on board lighters off the bar, have been surrounded by two armed steamers from New Orleans containing six hundred men, with artillery, and made prisoners of war. The officers and men, it is said, have taken paroles. Here again the attempt was made to seduce them from
