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.
Later from the North. A gentleman who has seen a New York Tribune of May 28th, has kindly furnished us with some items of news from its columns. Gold was quoted at 186½ The war news was of no great importance, and the public mind at the North awaited with anxiety the result of the strategic movements of Grant. A Washington correspondent says that Fredericksburg has not been evacuated, but that all the Government stores have been removed from there. It is added that Mosby's "guerillas" have occupied the last ten days in destroying all the bridges and blockhouses erected by the Yankees between Union Mills and the Rapidan. Joshua R. Giddings, the famous (or infamous) abolition agitator, is dead. We should be pleased to record the demise of any number of his co-workers in evil.

Enterprise in the Post-office Department. --The Piedmont railroad, as the general public is aware, has been completed for more than a week past, and the great bulk of travel and Government stores find ready and expeditious transportation over the line, by which from one to three days a time are saved from Richmond to the South. Not withstanding this, however, we have the triweekly spectacle of an old "one horse concern," in the way of a mall cart trudging along from Danville to Greensboro', carrying Mr. Reagan's mail bags. If the total want of enterprise and intelligent effort for the promotion of celerity and efficiency in transporting the mails were not too serious a matter for laughter, it would be difficult to restrain one's risibilities in witnessing the mail-cart trudging alongside the railroad engine, carrying the C S mails.-- Danville (La) appeal, May 28th.

What the Whigs and Government men thing of the Yankee Triumphs [From the London Post, (Cabinet Organ,) May 28] If the North really consider the battle in Virginia a victory, it can only be because they have been so accustomed to be disgracefully beaten in that quarter by Gen.
