And also to take judicial cognizance (donner acte) that M.

S. troops from Ringgold barracks have been concentrated at Fort Brown, (Brownsville,) Texas, and with those already there make 400 men, all under the command of Capt.

McLeod returned this evening. The commander at Fort Brown will not listen to any argument, but says we are a "pack of traitors," and they will come down and retake our fort — but they can't do that. We had a picket guard posted last night, and we all slept on our arms in anticipation of an attack. We have complete control of the bar and passes. I suppose we will throw up more entrenchments. We have placed some guns in position for the Daniel Webster; also, for the Brownsville men if they come to attack us, which I do not think they will. Our picket guards are four m
