heir way back to Fort Craig, where they arrived before morning, with the loss of the two mules. On another occasion, when the enemy were on their retreat from the territory, Paddy Graydon, with one man, arrived late at night at the village of Socorro, when he was informed that there were seven Confederates in town, quartered in a house not far away. Paddy, with his army of one soldier, immediately approached the house that contained the enemy, and commenced giving orders in a stentorian voiederates would have commenced their retreat at that time for San Antonio, Texas. After remaining two days at Valverde, to bury the dead and give needed rest to his men, Sibley moved up the river to Albuquerque, leaving his sick and wounded at Socorro. Sibley found, upon his arrival at Albuquerque, that Captain Herbert M. Enos, assistant-quartermaster, U. S. A., who was in command there, had destroyed the larger part of the Government stores at that place and had retreated with his command t

hen it seemed secure. The surviving Nationals. took refuge in Fort Craig. Their loss was sixty-two killed and one hundred and forty-two wounded. The loss of the Texans was about the same. Sibley well comprehended the situation. The fort could not be taken, and the spirit shown by a large portion of Canby's troops satisfied him that, notwithstanding his loss of transportation by the capture of his mules and wagons, he need not fear a pursuit. So, passing on and leaving his wounded at Socorro, thirty miles above Fort Craig, Sibley pressed forward to Albuquerque, fifty miles farther, which was at once surrendered. His destination was Santa Fe, and he was marching with perfect confidence of success there, when his vanguard, under W. R. Scurry, was met near Fort Union, in the Canon Glorietta, or Apache Pass, fifteen miles from the capital of New Mexico, by about thirteen hundred National troops, under Colonel John P. Slough. These were mostly Colorado Volunteers, with a few regul

They did so, as they anticipated, without further opposition from the force they had so signally beaten. Leaving their wounded at Socorro, 30 miles on the way, they advanced to Albuquerque, 50 miles further, which fell without resistance, and where their scanty stock of provisions was considerably replenished. At Cubero, 60 miles westward, they obtained more provisions and some a cannon by hand up and down the sides of most rugged mountains, he was ten days in making his way to a point on the river below, where supplies had been ordered to meet him, leaving his sick and wounded in hospitals at Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Socorro, to fare as they might. He naively reports that sufficient funds in Confederate paper was provided them to meet every want, if it be negotiated; and honors the brothers Raphael and Manuel Armijo--wealthy native merchants — who, on his arrival a

id with their lives for the victory which was due to their example. Timidly shut up in the fort, the Federals were no longer in a condition to molest their adversaries. Sibley felt that there was no necessity for him to take any further notice of them; and ascending the Rio Grande, he boldly advanced with his little army, whose strength had been greatly increased by success, into the interior of New Mexico. He no longer met with any serious resistance. He left his wounded and sick at Socorro, reached Albuquerque, where he found abundant provisions, and proceeded thence to Santa Fe, bearing to the right by the Apache Pass defile, near which stands Fort Union, situated at a distance of about twentyfive kilometres from the capital. Anticipating no resistance, he allowed a detachment of about one thousand men to proceed in advance under Colonel Scurry. On the 24th of March the latter found the Apache Pass occupied by a few hundred regulars and about one thousand volunteers, who h

Sibley's proclamation did not have the desired effect. Instead of rallying men to his standard, it has strengthened the Union army by at least two regiments, and placed nearly all the citizens under arms. Great enthusiasm prevailed in the counties of Bernalillo, Benicia, Socorro, and in the upper counties. The militia have turned out in large numbers. Advices from Fort Craig are to the 7th inst., The Texans under Sibley were at Fort Thorne, fifty miles from Fort Craig, advancing on the latter place. Their supplies were scarce, their transportation poor, and their only alternative was to fight or starve to death. Our folks are anxious for a battle. They have every advantage, and are confident of success provided there be no treachery. grand pontifi
nd I think the fort will soon be entirely evacuated. The Federal may slip round to Fort Union and make another stand. I am glad to say that we have procured good quarters in this town, and our wounded comfortably fixed and doing well, (the most of them,) and will be left here under the care of competent physicians. Still later advices are contained in a telegraphic dispatch from Houston, Texas. HoustonMarch 31.--Dates from Mesilla to the 7th, report Sibley's advance to be at Socorro, thirty miles above Fort Craig, half way between Mesilla and Santa Fe. Letters received from our troops state that New Mexico is practically in our hands. Sibley is advancing on Santa Fe.
