ons were enriched by legitimate commerce. Brigham showed administrative talent; and, with full command of the resources of his people, he was able to combine cooperative effectiveness with the individual energy and spontaneous industry of the population in such a way as to work marvels of achievement. Utah was transferred, by the treaty of 1848, from Mexico to the United States. The question was thus revived, whether it were better to pursue their pilgrimage still farther, encountering Apache cruelty and Mexican bigotry, or to trust to their isolation, and build up the kingdom on United States territory. The Mormons chose the latter course. Early in 1849 they organized the State of Deseret; but Congress ignored it, and, in September, 1850, created instead the Territory of Utah. President Fillmore appointed Brigham Young Governor; and he took the oath of office February 3, 1851. Stenhouse says, Rocky Mountain Saints, p. 275. President Fillmore appointed Brigham on the recomm

ly destroyed. Two Confederate officers and fifteen men were taken prisoners. This loss was the most serious that the enemy had met with in the whole of their campaign, as all their ammunition, baggage, and provisions — of which they were already short — were destroyed, and it was accomplished without the loss of a single Union man. The fight in the caton continued until late in the afternoon, when Colonel Slough moved back to Koslowski's Ranch. This engagement is known in Union reports as Apache caton, and at the South as the battle of Glorietta. The Union loss was I officer and 28 men killed, 2 officers and 40 men wounded, and 15 prisoners; the Confederate, 36 killed, 60 wounded, and 17 prisoners. Colonel Scurry returned to Santa Fe in a completely demoralized condition, while Colonel Slough, having accomplished all that was desired, returned to Fort Union. On April 1st Colonel Canby, who still remained at Fort Craig, left that post with a force consisting of 860 regulars and 3

Captain: I have the honor to report for the information of the Colonel commanding, that pursuant to Special Orders, No.--, Inspector-General's Department, New Mexico, Tucson, Arizona Territory, April twenty-six, 1864, I took up my line of march from Fort Cummings, New Mexico, on the thirtieth ultimo. My command consisted of Company I, Fifth Infantry, California volunteers, forty-seven enlisted men, a detrst cavalry, California volunteers, and Juan Arrozas, the Mexican guide at the Rio Mimbres. Arriving at the entrance to Doubtful Canon at Steen's Peak at six o'clock A. M., fourth instant, I was fired into by a party of not less than one hundred Apache warriors, ambushed for that purpose. One of my men was dangerously wounded, and three others slightly wounded, and my horse killed the first fire. I had a rear guard of two non-commissioned officers and nine men; the balance of the men, except

whim. He comes and goes as fancy prompts-one week in Missouri, next week in Tennessee, a third week on the Gulf. Turkey is trying to settle some of her Arab tribes, but she has met so far with no success. Russia's attempt to colonize her steppe led her into serfage, and three hundred years of iron discipline were needed ere her rulers thought the Russ people broken of their ancient wandering habits. Are the Africans yet prepared for settlement? You cannot fix a free Sioux, or a free Apache on the soil. A Red man cannot live in competition with a White neighbour. Has the Negro strength enough to stand alone? Under servitude the Black men grew in numbers; under freedom the Red men fell in numbers. Will the Black men under freedom fail as the Red men fail? Have the good and pious men who gave the Negro freedom, only issued, in their ignorance of nature's rules, an edict for his slow but sure extermination from the soil? Be sure of one thing, says Colonel Binfield, a Sout
eizing the stores at Albuquerque and Cubero. Major Pyron was sent to Santa Fe; Colonel Scurry, with the Fourth and a battalion of Colonel Steele's regiment under Maj. Powhatan Jordan, was pushed forward in the direction of Gallisteo, while Colonel Green, with his regiment, was held to check any movement from Fort Craig. The enemy at Fort Union now threatened Santa Fe, and Major Pyron, reinforced by four companies of the Fifth, under Major Shropshire, advanced to meet him. On March 26th, at Apache cañon, a severe skirmish ensued, in which acts of daring were performed. The company of Brigandes (independent volunteers), under Capt. John Phillips, is said to have done good service. One of their number, Thomas Cator, was killed and two wounded. Colonel Scurry reached the scene of action at daylight next morning, and the next day (28th) fought the battle of Glorieta, driving the enemy from the field with great loss. Colonel Scurry reported that he had in this combat portions of the c

ess, 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 had come from Colorado by forced marches. After dispersing the Federal scouts, the Texans arrived in front of the enemy's position, which was defended by a battery of artillery. They renewed, without hesitation, the bold attack which had proved so successful at Valverde. The Federal artillery, still well served, inflicted upon them some terrible losses. As to the infantry,

Last Friday evening, about three o'clock, a Mexican train which was encamped just above Heart's Mill (in El Paso) was attacked by a party of Indians. The Mexicans in charge fled on their approach, leaving everything.--The Indians took the oxen (some one hundred head) and left in the direction of Dog Cannon. At last accounts forty Mexicans were in pursuit. On Saturday morning a horse belonging to a Mexican in this city, and which was in a stable in "California," was found shot with Apache arrows.
