We received yesterday from Corpus Chris-ti, through the kindness of Capt. Parker, of the schooner Star, a sample of salt taken from a salt lake about seven miles from that place. It is a part of a quantity sect to the editors of the Nueces Valley paper, published at Corpus Christi. Those gentlemen were kind enough to favor us with this specimen. It is clear colored, clean, well crystallized, and of good taste. The editors of the Nueces Valley say they are informed that the supply of it at the lake in question is inexhaustible. Small boats can run up to the beds, and one hundred bushels is the average product in the land per diem.—New Orleans Picayune, June 28.
