[from the Houston (Texas) Telegraph Sept. 36 J The extension of the jurisdiction ot the United States into the valley of the Kio Grande, ha. opened a Held of enterprise to the Anglo-Americans of incalculable magnitude. It is impossible to estimate the resources that will ere long be developed in this beautiful and fertile region. It is a singular fact that the soil of this exten_.u._ l. ? ...l ?; ? .1 ?? -i'v 'n?'v j ?m vvni)n/??u va uiiuQiai uvimiiiueiiiB J'l tSCHClJ limilar to thoie that compoie the delta of the Nile, and thete U scarcely a doubt that under a proper system of culture, it will become equally productive. The Kio Grande reiemblei the Nile in many remarkable feature*. It haa it* source in towering primitive mountain* composed of red granite, precisely similar to that from which the imperishable monuments of the I'haraohs have been hewn. Below these, are extensive formations of secondary limestone and sandstone ; vast fields of moving sand, through which the river forces its devious way in its annual floods, by constantly changing channels, and broad plains like the desert of upper Egypt,covered with sileceou* pebbles, such as flints, agates, chalcedony, intermingled with large petrified trees, like those found near Cairo. Indeed tins extensive valley presents throughout its whole extent, almost the same geological characters as that of the Nile, and its soil being composed of the detritus of similar rocky formations, must be similar in its chemical constituent*. It is true that the valley ol the Rio Grande is not subject, like that oi the Nile, to annual inundations : but it it more favored in its climate, t the ruins (all so frequently and in such quantities, that the crops seldom fail trom drought If a system of agriculture similar to that which is in us* in Upper Egypt were introduced in this valley, it would doubtless become fully as productive ts ttie most fertile lands ol that country. This is evinced by the wonderful productiveness of the aoil in the vicinitv of the beautiful and flourishing town of El I'aso, where, by a judicium >?tern of irrigation, the meat abundant crop* are raited with comparatively little labor. We are confident that in a very short period of time the Egyptian cotton will be cultivated here to aa great or even a greater extent than in the valley of the Nile. The few experiments that have been made in the culture of cotton in the vicinity of Matamoraa, have been remarkably atieceeeful. The cotton plant growe in thia region with wonderful luxuriance, and yielda an abundant crop almoat without culture. The augar cane alao here growa to an enormous sue^and far exceeds in itiproduct* the cane of Louisiana ! or any portion of eastern Taxes. The climate la so mild j in the vicinity of Matamores, and as high up aa Lamargo, that the cane is seldom touched by the frost until it has ; attained a aixe nearly equal to that it attains within the ' tropics. The frosts, too, are generally so light that they j mature the cane at an eailier period than it would mature within the tropica ; while at the same time the product of augar is rathsr increased than diminished. It has been remerked by naturaliata, that tropical plenta ere more productive without the limits of the tropica, end I near the northern limit* ot their growth, than they are | near the equator. If this doctrine ia correct, the culture of the augar cane will be lound more productive in the ' lower portion of the valley of the Rio lira rule then it ia evan in Cutta. Many valuabla tropical fruita may also . be cultivated in thia section with great advantage. The ; orange, fig, pomgranate, and similar fruita, grow with wonuerfui luxuriance in tha vicinity of Matamoraa and tjamargo The portion of country extending from Point I Isabel 10 Laredo, will, probably, at no distent day, be ! covered with extensive plantations of su^ar cane, Egy ptian cotton, and grove* of orange*, lemona, figs, olives j and other tropical fruita, and rival in beanty and lovalt- ' d*s* the fabled gardepa of the llesperide*.

Mexican Faata ami Flgnrea. (From the Washington Union, October fi 1 The following la a tranalation of part of an article in the Munilor Republicans, of the city of Mexico, proteasing to he a critical review of the actions of I'alo Alio and Keaaca tie Guerrero. Our military readers will be i amused at the ingenuity displayed bv the writer,iu manufacturing a large army for General Taylor out of such ; unsubstantial materials as suppositions and philosophical deductions; and every reader of Shakai>eare will bo j forcibly reminded of lalstaffs men in buckram. The i public may see, by this exaggeration, what confidence is j to be pliredinthu statements ot the Mexican press - ; how idle are all their calculations?how visionary the ' hopes which they express of defeating our army. The Mexican press has only to reverse the telescopo to lessen the troops of General Taylor and General Wool, thus to scatter their forces en paper, and at once Texas becomes open to the Mexican arms, and Santa Anua gathers his laurels on the banks of the Sabine! Will Mexico never come to her senses ? Will she not see the truth until it is too late I Will she be eternally misled by the boasts other politicians and the exaggeration of her press 1 [Translated from the Monitor Kepublicano ] With respect to the forces of Taylor, according to his report ot the regiments and troops engaged in ba'tle, It appears that they were regiments and corps whose strength cannot be less than we have assigned to them, because it was thus stated, at least in the newspapers of the United states, and because the regiments of that nation do not number less than 1,000 men; and this is what might he supposed in a country where there are no desertion*, where the pay is high, the service light, the treatment not rigorous, and the recruiting so easy as it is among the adventurers who arrive daily from Kurope eager to earn a dollar a day and not possessed of a farthing on landing. Supposing these facts, and many others which are omitted, because they may bo supposod by any one who knows what that nation is, and tho history of a similar invasion, we shall state how this army was formed:? Four regiments of the line, the 3d, 4th, Oth, and 8th, of 1,000 men each . 4,000 The 3d artillery,under the command of Lieutenant Child* 000 Artillery under Major Ringgold 100 llattery ol 18 pounders under Lieut. Churchill. . . t>0 Duncan'* light artillery 100 Captain Walker'* volunteer* 00 CAVALBV. Captain* Ker'i and May'* companie* of the 3d dragoon* 300 6.130 It may be seen that the many volunteer* who accompanied the army are cot here included and tho-e only belonging to Captain Walker's company are counted ? Thus, Taylor's army could not have numbered less than 4,000 men, after making many deductions immensely in hi* favor, for he would not have ventured to enter into action with the reduced number which is supposed, and this is proved by the patience which he showed in undertaking hi* march, and which, in truth, 1* greatly to_ hi* honor. We have seen what Taylor's force* were Now, on the other hand, General Anita's did not amount to 4,000 men, auxiliaries included. No one will doubt this, who recollects the regiment* that were present, and who reflects, moreover, upon the fact that ouriegiments were much reduced on their arrival at Matamoras. Let us see, then, what their number was :? INFAftTBV. The r.apadores (sappers) 300 3d light infantry 300 10 pieces with artillery-men 100 1st regiment of the line 000 4th do do 460 Oth do do 160 10th do do 600 Battalion of Tampico 100 I'ermanent company of do 60 cavalbv.

Taylor's army had all these advantages: 1st, they were well clothed; ad, well fed; 3d, well cared for; 4th, fresh from repose; aod fith. they ha l an excellent armament and munitions, their artillery poweiful in number of pieces, calibre, and quality, as the guns were I'aixhant.

The President of the State Convention will merit, if ho doei not receive the uucquivocul praiie of the people of thil State for the moit putient and gentlemanly behavior by which hii protracted labora in thia body nave been diitinguiabed ;he enjoys the confidence of hii colleaguaa and the commendation of the great masa of the citizens ; may he retire with honor until happily for the State, bo may be called upon to reiume his public dutiea in aome other and more leiponsihle position. A section was adopted last evening, at a late hour, which provides for the separate submission to the poopie of a projiosal to place colored electors upon a footing of equality with white men. In respect to a limitation of the pay of membera of the legislature, which hat excited so much comment throughout the State, the lollowing section haa been adopied " The members of the Legislature (hall recalve for their terries* a turn not exceeding three dollar* a day from the commencement of the session; but *uoh pay hall not exceed in the aggregate three hundred dollaia for per diem allowance, except in proceeding* for impeachment. When convened in extra aeaaion bv the Governor, they ahull receive three dollar* per day.? They tball alio receive the aum of one dollar for every ten mile* they (hall travel, in going; to and returning from their place of meeting, on the molt uiual route. The Speaker of the Assembly ihall, in virtue of hi* office, receive an additional compenaatlon equal to one third of bia per diem allowance aa a member." Thi* law to take effect in 184S. The *ei?lon of the Legialature i* therefore limited to one hundred day*, except in proceeding* in caae of impeachment, or when an extra aeciion 1* called. The following aection waa alio adopted: " No person being a member of Congress, or holding any judicial or military office under the United State*, shall hold a seat in the Legislature; and if any person hall, after his eloctiou as u member of the Legislature, be elected to Congress, or appointed to any office, civil or military, undor the government of the United State*, his acceptance thereof shall vacate bis seat." A debate of extraordinary length occurred upon the following section: " No bill shall be passed uulea* by the assent of a majority of all the members elected to each branch of the Legislature. and the question upon the final passage shall be taken immediately upon its last reading, and the yeas and nayi entered on tho journal." It was proponed to amend the lection so as to preclude the possibility ot tho dual passage of any bill except by two-thirds ol all the members elected ; but the proposition was defeated ; and it will be seen that 05 members (or a majority) are competent to pass any bill. I herewith enclose a copy of tho new constitution. There hare, however, been some very material modification* and amendments to the first two or three articles. Very rapid progress has been made during the past two or three days. As each article is adopted, it is immediately ordered to be'ongrossed. The < onvention has completed six articles of the new constitution, and will have ample time during the week to run over the whole ground, and adjourn with no ordinary relet. The weather was never lovelier. Broadway is enlivened by whole troops of American houris, appareled in color* corresponding to their personal characters and to the condition of tho weather. It is said that white ia emblematic of purity : and what is purtr than a woman of virtue, or what is lovelier than the carnation of her lips 1 Lgad, nothing ! It is certain that the radical anti-renter* are somewhat exasperated at Governor Wright for reasons which, whether good and sufficient or not, are very well understood. I am told that a committee of anti-renters, from Delaware county, will wait upon the Governor in a lew days, and petition tor the pardon of all those anti-rent prisoners sent from the counties of Delaware and Columbia. The probability ia that the " ides" will have due weight with the chief-magistrate.
