A Frontier Post.

            Major H. H. Sibley, U. S. A., writing from Fort Graham, Texas, February 16th, to a friend in Houston, gives an interesting account of an expedition he had just made up the country, accompanied by thirty men, on the direct route to the new post, "Phantom Hill," on the head of the Clear Fork.  They left Fort Graham on the 9th January, crossed all the tributaries of the Brazos, including the Bosque, and reached the new fort on the 31st January.  They were caught in all the severe weather during the middle of that month, when the thermometer was down to six degrees below zero; and that for five days of the worst weather the whole company were out of provisions, and were obliged to subsist on one bushel of corn, which they had fortunately reserved.  Being mislead by the mountains and the cold weather, they struck the Clear Fork thirty miles too low down, and had to travel thence a south-west course to "Phantom Hill."
           
This post is on the extreme verge of timber and arable soil.  The only timber is scant postoak, elm and hacberry [sic], the latter not more than seven feet buts for saw logs.  Lower down on the Clear Forks there are some beautiful valleys well timbered with post-oak, cotton wood and the pecan.  Valleys like these are also to be found on two or three creeks which Major Sibley and his party crossed before reaching the Clear Fork.  On the return trip, the command encountered the Comanche chief Savaco and his band, and camped with them.  The command returned direct from Phantom Hill to Belknap, and thence down by the "old trail."—The Major says Belknap will attract more attention in five years than any other place in Texas.—Coal of the finest quality is found there in the greatest abundance, as also gypsum and "pipe clay."

Jefferson.

            We learn from our correspondent at Jefferson, Cass county, that up to the date of his letter, the 1[illegible]th of this month, seven or eight of the first class boats had arrived with full freights from Orleans; among the rest he mentions the Caspian, Clous, Choctaw, Echo, &c.  Groceries can be purchased in Jefferson an as favourable terms as at Shreveport, and our citizens can save a trip of some sixty miles by the operation.  It is time that our citizens were made acquainted with some of the facilities offered by Jefferson, and that instead of patronizing a town in another State, we build up our own cities, especially when the inducements for trade are equally as advantageous.

Writing School.

            We call the attention of our readers to Mr. Simm's card for the establishment of a Writing School in this place.
           
Mr. Simms has long been successful in imparting the chirographic art, of which he is himself a complete master.  The numerous testimonials from the press in his possession, are evidence of the character he has acquired abroad in his profession.—All who wish to improve themselves in that essential and much neglected department of education, have now a favorable opportunity; and we cordially recommend Professor Simms to the patronage of the community.

The following letter from G. w. Clapp, the post master in this place, discloses the fact of a mail robbery on the route from this place to New Orleans, at or near Sabinetown.  The letter presents all the facts as far as known; and we are gratified to be able to announce that Mr. Cowsar has obtained a description of the $5.00 bill alluded to.  If the description of the bill sent from this office corresponds with the bill which was attempted to be passed in Sabinetown, the evidence will be sufficiently conclusive to sent the [illegible] to the residence constructed at Huntsville for the special accommodation of such gentry.
           
We publish the letter at length, so that our citizens may become apprised of any losses they may have sustained.
                                               
                                    Sabinetown, March 16, 1852.
E. E. Cowsar, Esq., P. M., Tyler—
           
Dear Sir:
                       
On Saturday last, an old and respectable citizen residing near here, called upon me to go out with him and examine some papers which his daughter had discovered in a pond near his house.
           
On examination it proved to be a parcel of letters which must have been extracted from the Mail, or from some Post Office.  The letters were in quite a mutilated condition.  So far as we were able to make out the post-mark, all were mailed at your office, Feb. 18th.  We find six envelopes in your hand-writing, three of which were addressed to the "Chief Clerk P. O. Department;" one to the "Editors Delta, N. O.;" one to the "Editor U. S. Journal, New York;" and one to the "Editors Southern Literary Messenger, Richmond, Virginia."
           
The following is a copy of the last mentioned letter:
                                               
                        Post Office, Tyler, Texas, 17th Feb. 1852.
Editor Southern Literary Messenger—
           
Sir:
                       
In accordance with my promise to you, that I would see [?] subscription remitted on receipt of first number, I herewith remit you five dollars for subscription of D. B. Cleveland, Esq., to your valuable Messenger, commencing with January No. 52 [?].  Please acknowledge to me the receipt of the money when it comes to hand, and send him a receipt therefor.  Anything I can do for you conveniently, I shall readily serve you.
           
Your ob't serv't
                                               
                                    (Signed) Eli E. Cowsar, P. M.
                                               
                                                                        Tyler, Texas."
           
I regret that your letter (of which the above is a copy,) did not contain a description of the Bill inclosed, as I have good reason to believe that the same Bill has been offered in this town for goods.  You will please write me immediately, giving an exact description of said Bill, if possible.  Among the letters above described were the following—addressed as follows:--"Mrs. Amelia Manning, Traveller's Best, Coosa county, Ala.; col. W. M. Beall, Lebanon, Marion co., Kentucky; Elders Graves & Shanklin, Nashville, Tenn.; Miss Elizabeth Higgins, Villa Ries, Carroll co., Geo.; Mr. Robt. J. Wilcox, Mansfield, De Soto Par., La.; 2 letters to Rinaldo Hotchkiss, Esq., care Garrison Brothers, N. Orleans; Mr. John McLemore, Middleton, Carroll co., Miss.' A. B. Condon, Esq., St. Louis, Mo.; Miss Lyzie Attaway, Auburn, Ala."
           
Our citizens have arrested a man by the name of Jno. G. Randolph, and at an examining trial, he was committed for further trial, and is now lodged in our county jail.  If you give us an exact description of the $5 Bill you inclosed to the "Southern Literary Messenger," we think we can convict him of the theft.  I have inclosed all of the mutilated letters to the P. O.  Department, and requested a special Agent sent to investigate the matter further.  You will please request of the department the same favor.
Yours, very respectfully, Geo. W. Clapp.
                                               
                                    Former Agent P. O. Dep't."

Mr. Editor:
           
We, the pupils of Mr. Shreve, would acknowledge our gratitude to him for his kindness to us while receiving instructions in the beautiful art of dancing.  Mr. S. has a rare faculty for communicating the art; and we have taken this opportunity of expressing our entire satisfaction in our improvement.  Mr. S. is a perfect gentleman, an the attention he gives to his pupils will warrant satisfaction in one course of lessons.  We trust, however, he will take another class; but should he not, Prof. S. has our warmest wishes for his future prosperity.                                            The Pupils.
