CAPT. WAI.KKR, THE TKXAN RANGKR. [From tbe Hartford Daily Times, Not 16 1 Sumu.-l Hamilton Walker was b">iu about the Tear 1316, in frinoe George county, Maryland. Ilia brother* and other relatiTea now reside in WaahlngUu city. During tbe Seminole Indian war be enlisted In the United States serTlce as a private, and was one of Col Harney's picked men to penetrate tbe everglades of Florida, where foot prints of the whiti man were never before seen in that hazardous expedition, which effectually put an end to tbe Florida war, by conquering tbe Indlanw around tbnir own oouncil fires, young Walker greatly distinguished himself. He waa a faTbrlte of the daring llarney. whose ((nick perception neTer failed to select the mott energetic and bold. At the close of the Seminole war, Walker went to Texas and Joined Col. Hays' company of rangers. In I tbe summer of 18-14, he was one of the fifteen of Hays' men, armed with revoking pistols, who attacked eighty Camanch* Indians, and d?feated thxrn. leaving thirty hruu ^iiad Indiana unAtt tka M*l<l * ><! **?? ? ? bur of (load and dying carried off, it mi believed that more than half of the Camanche force was Main by these flftuen rangers. In this fierce battle, Walker wan piorced through the body by the spear of an Indian, the spsar pinning htm to the ground? He was left in that condition by hU companions, who tupposed he was dead. After the battle, he was found with the spear still sticking through him, though Ue bad suoeeeded in getting it out of tlie ground. Ills companions relieved him from it, ani found it had not touched a vital part. Ha reoorered. Walker was Also one of Col. Fisher's three hundred man who marched sgainst two thotuand Mexicans stationed at \lier, and waa captured by the Mexicans previous to that battln, as he made an excursion among them. After the defeat of the Mier expedition, ha waa marched, with other prisoner*, to the oastle of Perote. prisoners reoetived the inhuman treatment which no other people on <?arth, save Mexiaann and cannibals inflict upon iU^so within their power. At Aalado,.tbe Texans resolvt d to make their ss?ap<s Walker was foremost. It was arrunm J that he should sets* and disarm onn of thu guard, and that Cameron, a .Scotchman, should serre tne ^ther in tho same way. At the signal, the guards wore disarmed in a moment, and the Texans, !IU in number, rushed Into the onter court, where 150 Mexican infantry were guarding a quantity of arms and | ammunition. The Texans soon had command of this print, and armad themselves Whilst doing so three houi'rud Mexicans, cavalry and Infantry, formed outside of tho gat-*. ThsTeians rushed upon these, and def att d them, killing ten of their number, and losing Ave. The company then escape.!, but Anally became lost in the mouutalos. aud suffered greatly from hunger. As Walkar expressed It to a friend alter his return, their eyes became so sunken from hunger and fatigue, that they appeared like auger holes in the head. In this condition, they were re-captured by the Mexioans, and taken back to Salado. Here the blood-thirsty Santa Anna demanded the Ufa of every tenth man, and the onmpany was marched out to draw the black beans?one Mac* bean for svery tenth Dian being placed in the bowl, and all who drew them w?r? shot \ ouog Torrey, of this oily, got one and *as killed ou the spot Tfc<n? who drew 'lie white beans were subjected to intense suftaring*.

Krom repeated diacouraglng acoounta reoelved at the Caatle, concerning the safety of tha train under Major L ally's command, m well a* the condition of his troop 1, Col. Wynkoop determined on an expedition to Jala pa. According, on the evening of the 3td utt , with Captain Walker'e mounted riflemen, Captain Taylor'a artillery oorpa, withtvoalx-poundsra, Captains Bennett'a, Nagle*a and Blnder'a lat Pennsylvania, we took up tUe line of march, leaving a aufflntant number of men In tba Cattle to defend It in ease of attack We halted for the night at La* Vega*, leaving at daybreak the following morniuK, leaching Jalapa at 4, P. M , where we found Major Lallv quartered. Not a Mexioan was aeen during the j march disponed to give ua battle, while nearly all the i towns aud raneboa along the road were deserted. | The autborltiea and people of Jalapa wero greatly surpriaed at our entnnce, and manifaated much anxiety to : know the oanae. Tbia waa not long withheld, for the ; very flrat aot of Governor Wynkoop waa to arreat the I Alcalde, and hold him roaponaible for every outrage perpetrated by a Mexican. The enemy had beooue emboldened by their frequent attaoka upon onr traina, and were both nameroua and impudent in town. They crowded the eornera of aimest every atreet, many, having ih appearance of guerillas, frequently insulting our men, and cauaing a oonatant atate of cxcitemeut, which generally gave rtae to a "knook down'' by the boy*. AUatorea, eating houses, Jco . ware oloaed at an early hour in the day. during our brief sojourn of four days, and, whenever a purchase waa made, it wai invariably upon the " for.o iirMf.'1 ryateni, the Mexlcana becoming heartily siok ot a game of wblnh they were the orlgitutors. It waa " poeo tiempo'' this, and 'poootlempo" that -or. In other worda: "trust to-day and pay tomorrow." The train between Vera Crux and Jalapa, comprising only about seventy wagons at flrat, with some troops, infantry aed cavalry, waa attacked several timea, and narrowly eaoaped destruction at the National Brings, where the guerilla* had taken a position on each side of the road upon the height* Whau oar troops bad reached the bridge, a deadly volley waa poured Into them by the eneiny. killing and wounaing a number. The men and traiu were scattered tor aeveral miles, and aome time elapaed before all had come up Altogether, the affair was a moat unfortunate one from beginning to end. The gueiillaa wer? dually routed, but it would appear only to rally at another point At Cerro Ooldo, another attack waa made, and much tiring followed, but the loss waa not aa serious a* at the National Bridge The enemy had twopiaceaof artillery, one of which waa captured, and occupied their old and most important height! The total number of ktlledand wounded ia the several engagements. (i >i'K not exoe?d seventy, only ten b lug killed. The wounded were doing well at last acoounta, and are all in a fair way of recovery. I regret to stata that Major I.alty received a wound from a musket ball in the faoe?it Is not dangerous The train had dwindled dowu t* leu than ttfty wagons, the contents of which were of little iinpottan , from the faot thtt not one dollar had been sent forward Upon Inquiry, I learnedfrouaseveralinfluential foreign residents of Jalapa, that the bands of guerillas who had infested the road between Vera Cruz and Jalapa, sinoe the abandonment of tbe latter pUee by ttan. scott? a must imprudent act?liad their origin in that townwore orgauized and equipped under the superintendence u! an old priest, named J areata, aud that De hoto, Governor ot the State of Vera Crui, generally assisted in furnishing the means. 80 far as ">leJor Lally's train was eoncernsd?which was supposed u> have a large amount of money?the entire band of robbers hailed from Jalapa.

The expedition returned to Jalapa-at an early hour In the even ing, evidently delighted with the occurrences of the day Quatepeo is a very pretty little town, the Inhabitants of which will no doubt loug remember the vt?it of Oov. Wynkoop and party. Throughout the whole of Thursday and op to Krlday noon, an lutenre excitement prevailed among the t>oop?, and it was with i^rent difficulty an outbreak uould tie prevented by the commanding officers The very tact that Jalapa hod bi<?u made, as It were, a depot for the organization and fitting out of guerillas-that American citisens bad been shot down in eold blood in its public plasa ?and that it cow swarmed with a people whose countenances were not to be mistaken?was sufficient to arouse the American spirit, and create a strong desire for vengeance It waa known that arms and ammunition were oonccaled in the town, and the Oovernor, on Krlday, tha 27tn, in several interviews with eitiiecs, demanded tbe Immediate surrender of the same -security for the future pe*o?abl j deposition cf the Inhabi tauta towards our troops? aud a pledge that our trains should no longer be molested, as far as they, the Jalaplans. ware concerned.

The men who then objected to the nomination and eleotion of Henry Clay, were the 7Yi4u.i? and its eoUbor?r? in this State ; and for that aot, will never be forgiven by those wbo really desire to s?e Mr Clay in the Presidential cfcair Of onr course In 1844, and of our exertions in his behalf, we need not speak. They were without araii , and because the Tribune and its associates, who had led honest men from his support in 1840. could not undo tha work of their bands.
