13th of September, previdus to the storming

Infantry, at the head of his regiment, was

round in a run horn the opposite side of the
hill, expecting to have to .clrarge nireld bat

The head of the two regiments met at a
point where both were compelled to belt for
a moment. • Major linnterrode up to Major
Sunnier, extending his hand, saluting him
with, " How do you do, Major 'Sumner l"
who replied, "Really sir, 1 do riot recollect
you." "Do not recollect me 1" "No sir,"
replied Major Sumner. When Major Hun
as it were, straitening himself tip in his
saddle, nunarked, "I was one of your Ser

ner recognizeil his former Sergeant, turd ex
tending his hand remarked, "Well, really,
sir. I am exceedingly happy to meet you; ,
arid more particularly at the present time,
going into battle with the same. rank as my
aelf,and both of us in coin ma,nd of regiments

position at Corpus Christi to a point opposite
to Mate&bras, on the east bank of the Rini
Biavo, within the territory claimed by both'
Republic's, but then under tire . jurisdiction of
:Mexico, and inhabited by its citizens; that
lie order of the - Vresident torthe removal of

unconstitutional, it being without the concur

whit it, although, it was in session • but that
Congress, having by aubsequent aqts recog

without its previous authority or consent, the
