t elegant on the Mississippi river; her engines were compound, high and low pressure. In the month of January following it became necessary to burn her to prevent her falling into the hands of the enemy. The Federal gunboat Diana was armed with one thirty-two pounder Parrott rifle on her open bow and one or two twelve-pounder bronze Dahlgren rifled boat howitzers. Several months after the fight of November 3d, while making a reconnoissance a few miles lower down, she was engaged by the Valverde battery, Captain Sayres, C. S. A. (attached to Sibley's Texas brigade), and a detachment of cavalry. After a great slaughter among her crew she was captured with nearly two hundred infantry aboard. The boilers of the Diana were protected by two thicknesses of wrought bar iron, four inches by one and a-quarter inches, laid flat on a wood backing, built at an angle of thirty to forty degrees. The solid shot from Captain Sayres's six-pounder bronze smooth-bore guns penetrated this wrought i

Jackson, A. A. G. Army New Mexico: Major: Early on the morning of yesterday, while the army was encamped on the east side of the Rio Grande, opposite Fort Craig, I received orders to march with my command (Fourth regiment T. M. V.) and take possession at as early an hour as practicable of soed, I asked and obtained permission from Colonel Green to cross the river with these companies to pursue the flying foe. When the head of the column reached the opposite shore we were ordered to return. Night closed in on the hard-won field of Val Verde. This brilliant victory, which, next to heaven, we owe to the heroic endurance and unfaltering courage of our volunteer soldiery, was not won without loss. Of the regiment which I have the honor to command there were eight killed and fifty-

ns of the fort, they were obliged to proceed about twelve kilometres higher up to find, in the vicinity of the hamlet of Valverde, a point where the inaccessible acclivities which surrounded it might give place to an easier ascent. Consequently, thaface them with troops inured to war. In spite of the previous day's experience, he resolved to dispute the possession of Valverde, and not to allow them to establish themselves upon his line of communication without a fight. Sibley thus far succeederom the protection of his fortifications. While the vanguard of the Confederates was at last approaching the river at Valverde, and hastening towards its waters to slacken their thirst, the Federals, who had ascended the river by the right bank, adefended 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, it made a som
A battle in Texas.the Confederates victorious. Houston, Texas, March 23th. --Intelligence has just been received of a desperate battle at Val Verde, four miles above Fort Craig, which occurred on the 21st. It lasted all day. The Confederates numbered 3,800. The Federal force consisted of 1,000 regulars and 4,000 New Mexican volunteers, inclining 100 Pike's Peakers. The enemy at first attempted to turn our left flank, but were repulsed by Major Lockridge. They then attacked our whole line. Being driven back, the enemy concentrated on our left, forcing us to fall back. The Federals then crossed to the battery over the river.-- This move proved fatal to them. We charged their battery and captured it, dispersing them with great slaughter. The Confederate loss in 36 killed and 106 wounded. The enemy's loss in killed and wounded is over 500. Major Lockridge and Captain Van Hanvel of our army, were killed. Colonel W. L. Robards is slightly wounded. At the beg
Southern News. We have received the Mesilla Times extract March 1st, containing the Confederate account of the glorious and decisive victory received by Gen. Sibley's little army at Valverde,; New Mexico, February 23, We are unable to lay it before our readers this morning. The New Orleans Picayune says that a letter has been received from San Antonio, announcing the surrender of Fort Craig. The capitulation was unconditional. Col. Canby, the Federal commander, proposed that himself and command be permitted to depart on condition that they pledge themselves not to serve again during the war, but Gen. Sibley insisted upon an unconditional surrender.--With the fall of Fort Craig the last vestige of Federal rule vanishes from New Mexico. We are now master of that vast and wealthy region, have taken all the enemy's strong-holds, captured some 4,000 of his men, besides an immense amount of provisions for man and horse, and large stores of ammunition and arms. The quantities o

Sibley's little army at, Valverde, New Mexico, February 21. The main facts of the previous reports are confirmed by the Times, and, indeed, little that is now is added. The extra says: The long-expected engagement in New Mexico came off at Valverde, on the east bank of the Rio Grands, four miles above, Fort Craig, on Friday, February Valverde, on the east bank of the Rio Grands, four miles above, Fort Craig, on Friday, February 21 The battle commenced at 9 o'clock in the morning, and lasted until sunset. The action was commenced by a portion of Col. Haylor's regiment, 250 strong, under command of Major Pyron, who were ordered to flunk the enemy. Upon reaching the river valley, they discovered the enemy on the left Major Pyron's command charged, to a good position, where they were covered by timber and a wide slough. They held this position for nearly an hour under a heavy fire of small arms, shell, grape, and round
one at Galisteo. Fort Union, the strangest fort in New Mexico, has been heavily not only with regulars, but with powerful detachment of Pike's Peak volunteers: It is to be observed that Pike's Peak is about 200 miles north of Santa Fe, and the population is made up of adventurous men from the Northwestern States. They are naturally abolitionists, and, being without the ties of family, have volunteered answer to Canbys call for help against the Texans. There was a regiment of them in Val Verde, and they were driven from the field. After the battle of Val, Verde, Sinley pushed on and occupied Northern New Mexico, including Santa Fe. He took Santa Fe on the 15th of March, and since that has established his headquarters there. On taking possession he raised the Confederate flag, made on captured U. S. flag on the Federal had a salute fired from a captured Federal battery, and Dixie played on the of a captured U. S. band. On the night of the 23d Sibley, then buguerque,

Our sharpshooters and the Valverde battery opened a fire more fatal than anything this fated gunboat had ever witnessed before. The gunners on the boat weed engineers. But while this was the state of things below, who can describe the terror that reigned in the cabin? The Valverde battery and the sharpshooters threw a storm of iron and leaden hall through this that was terrific beyond description. , and these the next day, with floors besmeared with blood, added to the horrors of the scene. Some of the balls of the Valverde battery went entirely through the casemating, which consisted of slabs of iron one and a half inch thick, and seven inchd the timber near the starboard bearings of the main shaft. As the boat floated down the stream, one section of the Valverde battery was alternately pouring its murderous shots into the crippled gunboat, while the other section took position bel
