aired. One shot from Captain Duryea's command struck and dismounted a large brass field-piece of the enemy posted near the woods on the left. It was a gun of Valverde's battery. From the effects of this shot Captain Valverde and four horses are reported to have been instantly killed, and four men wounded. The two thirty-pong to battery and gun answering gun. It is known that the enemy had three or four batteries behind their breastworks on the west side of the Teche, among them Valverde's and Semmes's, as well as the guns of the Diana (now silenced) and the large gun on the redoubt near the road. Our battery had already thrown grape and caniser inclosed in iron rings, the balls about one and a half inches through. Near the woods, in a ditch, I saw one of the famous twelve-pound brass field-pieces of Valverde's battery. One of our shells struck and dismounted it. Another piece was said to be in the woods dismounted also. I did not see it. The works were shot away an

I hope not to be obliged to lose a moment in improving the decisive advantage gained in this section. We have destroyed the enemy's army and navy, and made their organization impossible by destroying or removing the material. We hold the key of the position. Among the evidences of our victory are two thousand prisoners, two transports and twenty guns, (including one piece of the Valverde battery,) taken; and three gunboats and eight transports destroyed.

At the dawn of day, finding the enemy quiet and asleep, I opened fire upon them from the Valverde battery; the first shot exploded in the centre of his encampment, causing the greatest confusion, the distance being only about nine hundred yards. We fired abou daylight the gunboat advanced towards us as if to contest with our battery the position we occupied on the water's edge, but a few shots, well directed from the Valverde battery, drove the boat a mile below, where she opened on us with her heavy guns; about the same time several batteries from the opposite shore opened on us; the

pling the living, wounded and dead under the feet of his horses. The whole affair was a most brilliant success, and has added another victory to our long list. It has cheered the hearts of our soldiers, and cast a gloom over the enemy. I have five hundred prisoners, many of whom are officers (say thirty or forty), two colonels, and many captains and lieutenants. We have again given the enemy a wholesome lesson, and I have so far been exceedingly fortunate as commander, beginning with Val Verde. The last four battles fought in Louisiana have been under my command, three of which are splendid victories, and the other one of the most desperate fights on record, for the numbers engaged, and one where there was more fruitless courage displayed than any other, perhaps, during the war. We did not achieve this last victory without loss. About thirty of Speight's brigade were. killed dead, and sixty or seventy wounded. My own brigade suffered in the death of Lieutenant Spivey and thre

Canby (q. v.) was appointed to the command of the military department of New Mexico. Civil war was then kindling in that region Around him the loyal people of the Territory gathered; and his regular troops, New Mexican levies, and volunteers gave him sufficient force to meet any Confederates which might be sent against him He fought them at Valverde, and was discomfited; but there were soon such accessions to his ranks that he drove the Confederates over the mountains into Texas.

Valverde, battle of. General Canby, commander of the Department of New Mexico, was at Fort Craig, on the Rio Grande, early in 1862. At that time Col. H. H. Sibley, a Louisianian, had invaded New Mexico with 2,300 Texas Rangers, many of them veterans who had fought the Indians. Sibley issued a proclamation demanding from the inhabitants aid for and allegiance to his troops. Feeling confident of success, he moved towards Fort Craig to attack Canby. His light field-pieces could not injure ibley might attempt to gain. There a skirmish ensued, and the Nationals retired to the fort. On the following day (Feb. 21) a considerable force of cavalry, artillery, and infantry, under Lieutenant-Colonel Roberts, crossed the river, and at Valverde, 7 miles north of the fort, a severe battle occurred. Canby was about to make a general advance, when about 1,000 Texans, horse and foot, armed with carbines, revolvers, and bowieknives, suddenly burst from a thick wood and attacked two of the
