d at Fort Fillmore, a post about four miles distant from Mesilla, proceeded against the rebels with about four hundred men,--artillery, cavalry, and infantry,--and after a desultory attack on the town, involving a loss, of three men killed and two officers and four men wounded, he cowardly returned to the adobe walls of Fort Fillmore. On the morning of the 27th Lynde evacuated the fort without reason, and commenced a retreat for Fort Stanton, having about five hundred men. When near San Augustine Springs, Baylor appeared in his rear with less than three hundred men; and without a shot on either side Lynde surrendered his entire force, which consisted of seven companies of the 7th Regular Infantry and three companies of Mounted Rifles. On November 25th, 1861, for this conduct Major Lynde was dropped from the army. This action was revoked November 27th, 1866, by general orders, restoring him to his commission and placing him on the retired list of the army.--G. H. P. In the mea

ncy of General Canby's management rendered it decisive in our favor. For the invading column the result was practically annihilation, unless the reports brought into our lines were gross exaggerations. It is to be hoped that this discussion may elicit from some of the survivors of Sibley's column a detailed account of that retreat. Soon after Canby assumed command of the department, and before he had time to get it fairly in hand, he was confronted with the appalling disaster of San Augustine Springs. This was quickly followed by the intelligence that two expeditions were forming to attack him,--one in Northern Texas under Van Dorn, to enter by the Canadian route against Fort Union; the other at San Antonio, under Sibley, intended to reinforce Baylor at El Paso. He was therefore compelled to keep a strong force at Fort Union, another at Fort Craig, and to hold a third at an intermediate point whence he could succor the division first attacked. This prevented him from acting ag

ead. Four of the bodies were found within the wall, one in front of it, and two some fifty yards in the rear. The United States troops have abandoned Western Arizona, destroying Fort Breckinridge and the stores at that point, a large amount of grain and provisions at Tucson Mills, together with the buildings. Fort Buchanan and all its contents, and other property, amounting in the aggregate to half a million of dollars. The United States officers taken at the surrender of San Augustine Springs were the following: Major Isaac Lindee, commanding; Captains Joseph H. Patten, M. R. Stevenson, Alfred Gibbs; First Lieutenants F. Ryan, David Hancock, Edward J. Brooks. Charles B. Stivors, A. H. Pluner, C. W. McHally; Second Lieutenants F. J. Crilly, Ed. L. Cressy; Assistant Surgeons J. C. McKee, C. H. Alden. They had all been paroled, and were to leave by way of Santa Fe. Col. John R. Baylor had issued a proclamation taking possession of Arizona in the name of the Co
of stone, and the garrison had been busily engaged for several months in fortifying it. The garrison was five companies of United States regulars. A battery of flying artillery was abandoned unharmed, consisting of four six pounders and two twelve-pounders. A large amount of ammunition was saved. There is said to be full supplies for six months for a six company post. The Times, speaking of the U. S. troops under command of Major Lynde, who surrendered to the Confederates at San Augustine Springs, says: These prisoners, including men and officers, number 700. They were all paroled — the men on oath, the officers on honor — not to fight against the Southern Confederacy until duly exchanged. Fourteen privates refused to take the oath, and are now at Fort Fillmore, doing good work for the Southern Confederacy, in the shape of hard work. The prisoners paroled were allowed to take their departure for New Mexico, which they did in two divisions, the cavalry companies in on
