The following may be of interest
to some of your readers, giving an
account of one of the largest and
most decisive Indian fights on the
Pacific coast, writes Captain George
A. Johnson to the San Diego Union
It was between the United States
troops stationed at Fort Mohave
and Mohave Indians, which ended
in the complete subjugation of the
Indians and a lasting peace.
Port Mohave is on the Colorado
river, thirty-two miles above The
Needles; was established in the
winter of 1858-59, and garrisoned
by the Sixth United States in
fantry. The garrison consisted of
three companies under command
of Colonel Richard Garnett, famil
iarly known in tbe army as "Dick"
Garnett. The other officers were
Major Louis Armstead, Lieutenant
Marshall ("Sandy Marshall") and
Dr. Milho, past surgeon.
The treaty between the Mohaves
and Colonel Hoffman, commanding
the regiment, having just been
signed, the colonel left for Cali
fornia. The Mohaves, like all the
river Indians, never respecting a
treaty without first being thrashed,
commenced depredations to test
the disposition of the command.
Having been successful in molest
ing emigrants on several occasions,
they finally concluded to surprise
I had transported the troops and
supplies on the steamer of which I
was pilot and captain, and had a
Yuma Indian as a valet, very
handy and useful, whom I named
"Charlie Goohan." Doctor Milho
took a fancy to him and I let him
have him. Through the boy the
Doctor found out that the Mohaves
were meditating an attack on the
post. They had all their warriors
gathered at a point twelve miles
below the post, on the east bank
(same side as the fort), and most
of their women and children moved
to a place of safety, ieaving enough
women in this camp to throw off
suspicion, and for use in camp..
Col. Garnett was informed, and
after satisfying himself of the truth
of the report, he determined not to
wait but make the attack. Having
only about one hundred available
men, he ordered Mai. Armstead
with twenty-five to follow the river
bottom to the point, and Lieut.
Marshall with twenty-five to follow
the mesa, the march to be made in
the night. Both commands left
after dark. Mai. Armstead ar
rived before day and pitched his
camp and at daybreak sent a ser
geant and two men to reconnoiter.
The sergeant soon found the en-
camnment ot inuians and saw a
couple of redskins running toward
it. He fired a shot at one of them,
which alarmed the Indians, and
thev came out in a body. The ser
geant hardly hid time to reach his
camp before the Indians were
swarming there. Maj. Armstead
formed his men in fours, the front
to fire when the rear were ready.
They were armed with the im
proved Springfield musket, Mag
nard primer, enabling them to load
and fire quite rapidly. The In
dians were armed with knives and
short clubs resembling the pestle of
a mortar, and with bows and ar
rows, They used tho latter for the
purpose of getting to close quarters
and making their fight a hand-to-hand
one, which with their knives
and clubs was not to be despised.
The troops7 first twelve shots
from the front brought a halt from
the Indians. The next twelve
stopped many of them, but there
being about 300 Indians they
crowded on, notwithstanding the
steady firing and good aim. Just
at this time Lieut. Marshall came
on the double quick, and formed
on the left flank of Armstead, ask
ing him, "shall I give them a vol?
"What are you loaded with?"
"Buck and ball."
"Give them a volley."
This he did, and it had the effect
of stopping the rush, and the In
dians retired slowly. The squaws
dragged the dead bodies out, made
unearthy noises, pushed the bucks
back and cursed them as cowards
but to no avail. They left the
Highest of all in Leavening
grounds to tho troops. The time of
action occupied about two hours.
Ninety-three Indians were left on
The Yumas, being friends of the
Mohaves, made no report of this to
the troops at- Yuma. I heard of it
three days after the fight through
Cocopahs, and gave the news to
Major Thomas, then the command
ing officer at Yuma. He at once
ordered Lieutenant Warner with
sixty men and two mounted howit
zers aboard of my boat, not know
ing the result of the battle. At the
foot of the Mohavo valley, now
known as The Needles, we met a
guide who was in the fight, who
told us the result, and that the
braveB had come in and made an
other treaty, which they have kept
to. this dav.
The arrival of the steamer with
Lieutenant Warner and sixty men
had its effect on the Indians
While at Fort Mohave I had the
opportunity to get the particulars
of the fight from one of the scouts
who was with Major Armstead's
command The particulars have
never been published, officers of the
army never making any report
other than to the commanding
The above mentioned officers of
the regular army all filled promi
nent places in either side of the
rebellion, two and a half years
after. Colonel Garnett was killed
in Virginia, a general in the con
federate army; Louis Armstead,
commanding a brigade in Pickett'p
division, was killed at Gettysburg;
Lieutenant Marshall led a regiment
from his native home, Elmira, N.
Y., early in the war. Major
Thomas of Yuma was the lamented
Gen. George H. Thomas; Lieuten
ant Warner is now a general and
in command of Fort Hamilton, N.

A daily paper that is pushing
aggresiveiy to the Arizona news
paper field is the Los Angeles
Times. In the years back the San
Francisco papers had almost a
monopoly in this field for full wire
service. Witnin two or three years
past the Times has improved grati-
fyingly, and now practically dis
places its older rivals, due to being
in Arizona a day ahead with the
same telegraph news. Besides, the
Times deserves well from this Ter
ritory. They have a special Ari
zona news service of their own,
with correspondents in each county
and a news Dureau in .Phoenix
wtiere this matter is compiled and
forwarded. A prominent feature
of this correspondence is the pro
gress and resources or the Tern-
torj', including a monthly write-up
of the features and improvements
from month to month of each town
of note in the Territory. This is
laid attractively before the whole
circulation field of the Times and
is already resulting in benefit to

0E 3XILX.IOIV ACRES
Or tiorernment Iand in tho
Great Hcvy Sliver Y alloy,
San Deigo County, on the line of San Diego
Yuma and Phoenix Railroad.
Few people are fully awaro that
there lays hidden by desert sand
hills on the east and north, and by
the coast range of mountains on th&
west, with the Mexican boundary
line on the south, a rich valley of
over one million acres of govern
ment land, the soil of which is
richer than that of the Nile, 'and
every acre of which can and will,
before many years, be irrigated by
the great irrigation ditch which the
Colorado River Irrigation Company
propose to bring water in from the
great Colorado riyer from a point
above Yuma called "Pot Holes'
The land is there. The water will
be there also. The valley is called
the great New River Valley, but it
should be called the California
Nile. The soil is a rich alluvial,
and has been examined by experts
who have pronounced it richer
than that of the famous Egyptian
valley that grows corn as if by
magic. Four years ago over 48,000
head of cattle grazed oyer this New
River "Valley. It must have been
covered with a heavy growth of
grass to have sustained them. In
the center of the valley and near
the boundary line are Fish anrj
Mesquit lakes, which are quite
large and filled with water which
flows into them from the Colorado
river. They are full of fish and
hunting is also a sport which can
be enjoyed in their vicinity. Large
forests of mesquit trees exist there,
some of which are from thirty to
forty feet in height. It is the com
ing land of milk and honey the
California land of the lotus the
place which will grow tropical
fruits to profusion, as well as coffee,
tobacco, rice, and such.
Today this great tract of govern
ment land is open to entry by all
who will, but before many years it
will be selling for hundreds of dol
lars per acre. It illustrates the
old saying that whatever can be
had but for the taking, people don't
rush after, but when it becomes
valuable people will rush to buy it
because then they "must have it."
This great valley of government
land lays on the route of the San
Diego and Phoenix railroad, which
will go through the center of it, and
when it and the great water ditch
are built to this great body of land,,
then will San Diego county have
within its borders another "Okla
To properly understand the size
of this great body of irrigable land,
will say that it is as large a tract
as all of the western part of San
Diego county, from the Cuyamaca
mountains to the ocean and from
the northern boundary line of the
county to the Mexican boundary
When 48,000 people inhabit the
tract it will do much to make San
Diego grow. Why not? San Diego
The above tract of land lies
across the Colorado- river and is
only a few miles from this city and
its settlement and cultivation
means much for us as we are sure
to get a great deal of trade from
the settlers. Editor.
