Swil'er. jun , arrived yesterday morning from Brazos Santiago, touching at Galveston. She left the Brazos on Saturday, the It 1st ult., and Galveston on the 2d imt. ? By this arrival we have the Matamoros Flag of the 55th ult. The Flag says that Col. Gorman, with fourcompanius of Indiana voluuteers passed up the river on the 241U ult., on the Big Hatch*e ; Lieut. Col K. Dumont,with two oompanles of the 25tb. on the Col. Hunt ; and the remaining four were on the Col. MoKee. at the mouth of the river, ?U bound for the < amp of Instruction. 1 he regiment is nearly 1000 strong. and has buffer* d a loss of but four men since leaving Indiana. A letter war received on Monday, by our commandant, (the Third Dragoons) from (Jen. Hopping, stating that he had received information that Gen. Urrea wus on thin side of the mountains with some four thousand men. and requesting a squadron of dragoons?but we learn that their colonel chooses to remain here until he has received bis complement of horses, in the meantime drilling his men as thoroughly an could be done elsewhere. A company of mounted men from Ohio, who had ri ceutly arrived here, was, therefore, sent up by the first bout, and will report to Uen Iloppng immediately for duty We understand from several sources entited to credit that this worthy (Col. Carvsjil) wan on h'riday liiKt at a ranoho called La Vasarin. some twunty-Ave leagues distant. on the road to Linares, with a force numbering about 260 men. having been joined by (ialan, another guerilla chief They are said to have detained a large uumber of mules loadad with corn, soap, sugar, and other produce, destined for tbis placc, besides one hundred cargoeB of good* which had been sent from here to Monterey. They appear determined to spare neither friends nor foes, but confiscate all they can intercept as fair booty?looking upon those interested as giving " aid and comfort1'to the enemy. A party of sixty men are reported to have been, a few days since, wittiin two or three leagues of this place, picking up deserters from the Mexican army, and impressing others into their service from the various ranchos iu our neighborhood. A squadron of mounted men could soon open the way for the traders ; and we understand that our commandant parties, and we hope soon to bear that the roads am cleared and made safe for the transmission of merchandise of all descriptions. ('apt K. A Ogden has been relieved at his own request from the post of quartermaster at the mouth of the Ilio (irande. and Major Anderson assigned to duty at that place The occasion of Capt. Ogden's retirement demand* of us a word in praise or the zeal and untiring Industry he has displayed in the discharge of the duties which have devolved upon him since the commencement of the war. In taking charge of the affairs of the department at the mouth of the river, a world of obstacles had to be encountered and a vast responsibility assumed. How he has diacharged the trust reposed In him, the regularity and order with which every thing has been conducted gives sufficient evidence. An uninterrupted navigation of the liio < irande from the mouth of the river to Camargo has been kept up throughout the whole year, against obstacles which by nearly every one were considered insurmountable. In the transportation of troops and supplies there ha* been no delay: they have been forwarded with a despatch and safety deserving the highest commendation. At his immediate post the energy of the man shows more apparent. One year ago the post at the mouth of the Itio (irande was a barren sand-beach, and millions of dollars' worth of public property wim being laaded there without any protection from weather, and immense losses were sustained in consequence. In a brief space of time commodious and se-. cure storehouses were erected; and as we viewed the place a few days a'o, it hus the appearance of a thriving commercial town, with an industrious population busied at their various avocations. A log wharf, se ve ral hundred fret long, has been completed, a ship-yard for the repair of steamboats and vessels is in operation, and nothing seems to have been left undone which it was in Capt. Ogden's power to accomplish for the advancement of the government interest. The zeal he has displayed in the discharge of bis multifarious duties is the theme of universal praise; and as a memento of the esteem In which he is held by the commanders of steamboats, we understand it is contemplated by them to present him with a silver pitcher, suitably inscribed, In token of their regard. Major Anderson, tbe successor of Capt. Ogden, la a gentleman every way worthy to succeed him. Capt. Jack R. Everitt nas given the nainn of Kverittvllle to a location for a city which he has projected on tfce Texas side of the Itlo (irande, opposite Mler. Mtcainboat navigation to thid point is unobstructed, and its proximity to a thickly populated and will cultivated section of Mexico,will give it advantages posm ssud by no other location which has yet been selected for a tnwn on tbe west bank of tbe Ilio (irande Uvsides its advantages in a commercial point of view, the location Is picturesque and healthy, and the surrounding country exceedingly tertile. Directly opposite, on the Mexican side of the river, are tbe Sulphur Springs, selected by lien. Hopping for his encampuieut or " military school ." Kverittville is destined to grow rapidly il will most assuredly command an extensive trade, and merchants and business men would be studying their Interei t.< by directing their atteution to it immediately (><>ods shipped to the new oily will meet with a ready sale, and be exempt from the duty imposed by Secretary Walker's " bill of abominations '' Success to Kvcrittrlll? and its enterprising projector.

Recently <ien. Wool, has prohibited fruit from being brought into camp, and the beneficial effects of this proceeding have begun to bo felt, the sick list decreasing gradually every day. It seems rather a bard matter to deprive the men of fruit, which if eaten in moderation would prove beneficial, but as the men will not take care of themselves they must be taken care of. It does really seem aa if they required as much looking after as children. If.Informatlon was received here not long since, that a force was marching down uponJParras to occupy that plaoe for the purpose of preventing our foroes here from dmwing supplies from that quarter The inhabitants, dreading their own troops more thau ours, despatched this intelligence, and a company of Texan rangers was sent to ououpy the place and scour the country in its viainity. A squadron of dragoons. under command of Capt. Hucker. and two pieces of artillery, were also despatched to V.azapil, from whom intelligence was reoelved yesterday that alt was perfectly quiet, and they will be baok hero hy th? 20th The Phivuix Company of mounted cavalry, numbering about one hundred commanded by Capt. Meets. lat? lleutonaut-colonul of tho Arkansas cavalry, are stationed In the I'alomos Ptss, below Xallillo, to prevent a surprise from that, quarter ? Pickets are stationed on the road to Agua Nuova. and every vigilance is exercised to guard against any su ld*u movement in this direction. And now for rumors It is reported that I'rrea his gone ,to Mateliualn, and tbat Mlnon s cavalry aro on their way to Potosi, a small place about seventy-five miles from hereon the San Luis route. It is also stated on good Mexican authority, that the troops which have been occupying San Luis, joined by 2000 from Zacatocas. are on the march to the city of Mexico Some degree of credit is attached to these reports, and they are not at all improbable. Various other reports are in rirculatiou touching the movements of the enemy in this direction which are not generally credited or untitled to credit. Amou^ tho most important of these I may mention that Gen. Keys, or Kaes. Is said to be on the march for Saltillo with a force of 3000 strong, and mm troops #r? moving on to I'arra*. Kroin tlie re suit of Lhi> recnunoissance of Captain Kucker, which I have noticed above, this latter report is undoubtedly false. Si'nuav, July 18, 18-17. Since writing my letter of this morning, Captain Kucker ban returned from hiit expedition to Mszapil, and confirms the report received from him He found no troops there, but had every reimon to believe that Minon's cavalry (uuder whose command is not known) were at or in the neighborhood of Matnhuala. An express was despatched by the Mexicans at Mizapil, immediately upon the approach of Capt 11., to the enemy wherever he was. informing them of his approach, that they might be cut off. ( apt. K. saw nothiug of them ou his return, although I have no doubt it would have afforded hiin infinite satisfaction to do so. Information lias been received from Parrafl to-day to the effect that I)oa Manuel Ibarra had received an express two days since, announcing the approach of a body of upwards of :W0 Indians, who had burned and destroyed three ranchos ou their way, and killed three hundred Mexicans It is very likely that this report is oorrect. as it was known that a large body of Indians were in the neighborhood. The number cf killed is probably greatly ex <g - -rated. I suspect that the force at I'arrss. one eomptny of Texans, will be increased. Au extraordinary .Mexican express has arrived in town from San Luis I'otosi, en route for some point west of the mouptalns, but what its purport is, of course has not leaked out It is thought that a movement is on foot. The arrival of this egress Is only known to a very few, but that a courier nas arrived there is no doubt. A grunt portion of tun supplies of corn, flour and cattle are derived from Parras, and you will be surprised to hear that an Kuglinh house there, claiming protection of the II ig of their goveruuient, go Into the market and buy up everything that we can want, foretelling uh completely, ax they Immediately demand higher and unreasonable rates, in Home instances amounting to exorbitancy, such as our government never ought and probably will not pay. If they do not consent to take reasonable rates their produce ought to be seized, and their claims left to government to settle. The Mexican* who have produce to fell fear the punishment of their own government if they supply our forces with provision, and actually pay certain KnglHh merchants there a heavy premium to have Jtho sain made through tham, or else Hell them at reduced prices Corn brings now $3 a fanegu, and $16 is demanded for corn a cargn, about -'100 pounds ; (>14 is considered a fair price, but the speculators are seeking for f ill, and will not sell for less. The wheat and corn orops are ooining in well.and there I* every prospect of an abundant orop.

[From the London News, July At the muetiug of the statistical section of the British Association, on Monday, the 'JHth of June, a paper was read by Professor Koyle, on the statistics of the cotton trade As this is a subject always of great importance, Hnd nnw jitt rnrtiiiir art* tit. nnhlin nftonfinn u*u hnvM oh. tained the substance of the statements. The paper was entitled ' On the imports of Indian, uh compared with 1 he prices of American cotton." and commenced by referring to the extensive and ex pensive experiments which hail been made by the Kast India Company for the improvement of the culture and oleaning of cotton in India lie stated that the experiments in the north-west of India had failed from the excessive dryness of the seasons during which they had been made; but he Mtill thought that cotton might be successfully cultivated in Bundlecund, and with the aid of irrigation, in the Oanges and Juinna Uoab, an In the similar climate of Kgypt, when the great canal now making In completed. One planter having been removed to < ioruckpor, and another to Kungpore. no deficiency of moisture wan experienced, but the plants fluttered, an in broach, from the great power of the nun at the end of the rainy season, and from the depredations of innumerable insects. In the peninsula of India, on the contrary, the success has been considerable. In Tinnivelly, Mr IIugheiilong cultivated Uourbon cotton; and Mr Finnic is .?ow established there. Dr White ascribes the superiority of cotton grown on the (Joimbatone farms to the suitable selection of the sowing season, and to the valley participating in the rains of both monsoons From .'>00 to 1.000 lb/*, of seed cotton have beeu obtained from the N?w Orleans seed, imported in IH40. This, he thinks, can belauded at Liverpool, costing about 3J?'d a pound, as the expense* of conveyance from (Joimbatone to 'oohiu are not more than a '*d per pound, and must be losn from Tinnivelly to Tutioorin. lie states that the llyots only want " purchasers and honest prices,' and that a rise of only a 'vl per pound in the local market would greatly extend the culture of cotton. It is an important fact that the above cotton, sent to Liverpool to the extent of :) i bales, ha* been valued at 6 '.jd a pound, and considered eijual to fair New Orleans," which waa gelling at the same price. In the Southern Mahratta country, ospccially near Dharwar. the culture has attained complete success under Mr. Mercer, the intelligent American planter. The natives, encouraged by the government experiments where they saw that uot ouly was more cotton produced per acre with New Orleans seed, but a better price obtained for every pound of cotton wool, even from the weavers In the interior ertiinilnil fhair Kiiltlvitlnn lui year to about So.OIK) acres, and have suceeeded Id cleaning thin cotton by the irapreved saw k>' : that some of I h * Conner yearn'crop, to the extent of liij bales, has been valued at Liverpool at *>d and lifi'l Here thn climate is considered by Mr Mercer to be like that of America, and the ted he found returning to it* original Mexican character lie also state* that I here In abundance of land fitted for cotton culture, which pay* from 8 to 11 annas per acre, and nothing Is required but a regular demand to have the country covered with ootton.
