lettek4aed Independence, August 4th,and direct ftom
a coMpany of 39 men, with 14 wagons. at Pawnee
Rock, July 20, and which states that after another
day's travel to the Pawnee Folk, they would lay by for
new days for a company that were behind them, which
would swell their number to SO men and 35 wagons.
The C nenches were on the Sernerone in large num
ber", and tbey were expecting to have a fight with them.
Mr. Graves, who brought this information, on the 2.lst
of July was robbed of 10 mules, by a party of °gages,
30 or 40 innumber, but he prevailed on them to give
the males again.
"Mr. Graves also states that he entertains no doubt
but that the company escorted as far as the line, by
Capt. Cook, have fallen into the hands of the Texans.
A letter brought by him from Mr. Jones. at Pawnee
Rock, a/so states the same opinion, and says that 160
Teehing, well armed had been seen by those with Mr
Lupten's wagon, which joined them on the 20th July.
The Governor had hastened towards Santa Fe, and the
company left by Cook were gobs.' on under the impres
sion that the Texians were all cespersed."

They commit their depredations disguised usually in
female apparel. They have a seem organization and
are only known to each other. In Wales, it appears
that en 'the roads turnpike gates have been erected a
very few miles apart, at which enormous tolls are
changed. To this the farmers object, and under cover
paha night, disguised, they meet and destroy the gates,
in th e hope by this means to compel the exacters of tolls
to ranove the obnoxious gates entirely. This is the
