in tribes, to hold their lands in common, and obey the orders of despotic chiefs. Yet, as a town was needed on the frontier, not for local traffic only, but for the security and supply of a long chain of Indian posts, including Fort Sill, Fort Griffin, and Fort Richardson, a town was ordered to be built, and has accordingly been built. The story of Denison City is as curious, in its way, as the story of Salinas City; for Denison in Texas, like Salinas in California, is built by English elic use. A school was marked, and the young city being named Denison, a day was fixed when corner lots were to be sold. Stevens assured the first bidders that a railway dep6t would be built. Denison was to be the magazine of Fort Richardson, Fort Griffin, and Fort Sill. A line of telegraphs was to connect these posts. Ice-houses, slaughtering-yards, and cotton-compressors were to follow.

Living in a wild country, with Comanches on the north and Kickapoos on the south, the Texans have not yet acquired that solid hold of the soil which lends a platform to domestic arts. A chain of military posts runs through the land, from Fort Richardson, Fort Griffin, and Fort Worth, in the upper counties, to Fort Concho, Fort Ewell, and Fort Clarke, in the lower counties.

There are no milking-maids and dairy-maids in Texas. If th

Magruder: Edmund P. Turner, Asst. Adjt.-Gen. Fort Griffin, Sabine Pass, September 9, 1863. Captain: On Monday morning, about 2 o'clock the sentinel informed me the enemy were signaling, and fearing an attack, I ordered all the guns at the fort manned, and remained in that position until daylight, to Col. Leon Smith for his activity and energy in saving and bringing the vessels to port. I have the honor, Captain, to remain, with great respect, your most obedient servant, R. W. Dowling, First Lieut., Commanding Co. F, Cook's Artillery, Fort Griffin, Sabine Pass. Col. Leon Smith in his report said that the enemy's fleet consisted of 20 vessels, and that they had about 1,500 men on board. The 200 Confederates at Sabine pass were composed of detachments from Griffin's and Spaight's bat
