    GENERAL WALKER’S NEW PROJECT. – The Houston (Texas) Telegraph of the 3d says: “We have before us a letter from WM. WALKER, to a friend in this neighborhood in which he announces that a vessel will leave Mobile on the 10th of November for Nicaragua. This vessel is capable of taking 500 passengers. She is comfortably fitted up, and persons desiring to emigrate to the land of promise and adventure will find things ‘all right’ now. It will be advisable for emigrants to be at Mobile two or three days before the sailing of the vessel. There is no doubt that ample means have been secured to carry out the objects of the expedition. Those sympathizing with the ‘gray-eyed man of destiny’ should promptly respond to the call. They will be welcome, and more than welcome, and this effort to plant American institutions, and establish American influences on the shores of Central American must succeed.”
