In the year Í8G2, after the lute General

command of the then Military Department
of New Mexico, Col. Kit Careon wiih five
Companies of New Mexico Vols. Col.

Robert?. Capt. of Co. C. 3ih (J. S. Cavalry
bad set fire to and evacuated at the ap
proach of Geu. Sibley's Column, from
Texas. The Apache3 were then or. the war
path And it was reported that they had
killed several miners in -
CTHE JICAUIU.A COLD FIiOl.DS,
drove off herds of 6ueep grazing aroui.d
the Gallina Springs, and attacked trains in
the neighborhood. ,-Patty" Grayton, as
the Captain of H. Company was funiiliaily
called by all the Volunteer "'boys," receiv
ed orders to march with all the available
men of his Company tnd station himself
at the Gallina Spring", with detachments
at Patos and intermediate points, to give
protection to miners, herders and freighters
Dr, Whillock who, on the reorganisation
of the New Mexico Volunteer forces had
been mustered out as Surgeon of the N.
M. Vols., per Gen. Order No. 44 current
series of 1862 was then living in Sania Fe,
and wrote communications to several
pnpers saying thut Capt. Grayton, while
stationed at the Gallina Mountain, had
called up -everal Apache braves, invited
them to partake of his keg of whiskey, and
upon their becoming drunk and riotous
thereafter, ordered his men to shoot tbem
down in cold blood. It, so happened that
Dr. Whitlock came in Novesnber of 1802 to
Fort Stan tot) on a visit. It was said to gei
a recommendation of Col. Kit Cursor, for
his reappointment as regimental surgeon.
While at the sutler store at Fort SUuton
i SOLOMO BF.CTHXER,
Cnpt. Grayton, who had then returned to
the post, bapppned to meet the Doctor
and demanded a retraction of the published
slander. Whitlock caid he would not take
back a single word, but furnish proof that
all he hud said and written was true. This
led to n challenge and an immediate accep
tance and "Patty" Grnyton went to his
tentfoi hi revolver. Dr. Whitlock waited
for him at the officers quarters and as soon
as the Cuptain made his appearance, began
to fire. The Doctor's first shot missed.
1'alty ' tut too mock ot ine pistol in
Whitlocl't hand, shattering it to pieces
sr.d wounding his antagonist in the wrist
who, nevertheless, fired again, wounding
Grayton fatally in the breast. Seeing that
his pistol would not do service any more,
he returned to the sutler s'ore for a shot
cun. Patty was tuken to his tent, and his
Company, who liked their Captain more
than a fulher, gathered together to -
RETEXCE THEIR COMMANDER.
While the enraged crowd were tiying to
gain forcible entrance into the sutler store
on one side, Dr, Whitlock, shot gun in
hand ran out at the older end, passed
through the officers quarters, jumped into
the intrenchment ditch to pass the tents of
Capt. Bergman's Company unnoticed and
had advanced almost bait the distance np
to Gray ton's tent, when the boys discovered
Lim and a fatal shot felled him to ihe
ground. ÜD6 after another of "Patty's"
men came np to unload his revolrcr, rifle
or shotgun into the body of tbeir common
enemy. One hundred and thirty bullets bad
perforated bis body when tht 'long roll''
was sounded for ibe garrison to ''full in
under arms." Capt. Santiago L. Hubbell's
Co, G was the first armed parly on the
parade ground. Kit Carson had Capt,
Grayton's Co. II. drawn up in front; order,
ed Capt. Uubbell I Uo. to "load ' ana
'! ready'' and then disarmed II Company
from the lieutenant down to the luwest
private in the rear rank. ' I have you
murderous scoundrels to
ivixo BeroRi srNst.T,"
expressed Col. Kit Carson. But Lieut.
Meinhold, tben 1st Lieut of G Co. and
acting regimeutal adjutant now captain
in the 3d U. S. Cavalry protested r gainst
any violent act on the part of the regimental
commnndi r and, the rest cf the officers
around helping him, persuaded the colonel
to pot the ringleaders the first lieutenant
and two enlistad men of Co. II -in irons
and under guard nnlil they rould he turned
over to the civil authorities for iral.
M'ijnr A. Morrison took command of the
disarmed company and for several weeks
had them employed as a "fatigue party,"
repairiog tie quarters. Capt. Grayton died
cf Lit wounds aud wst buried the aett
day with military honors. Padre Taladrie,
then regimeutal ehaplain, pmched the fu-
neral sermon upon the text ''No maltrat,"
(thou shalt not kill). The widow of Copt.
Grayton is now, and has been for many
years, married to Geo. Herbert, of Pigeon's
Ranch, or Glorieta Forage Agency, near
Saata Fe. v
COI.. ALBERT rjEIFFER
WES commissioned as Captain of Co. U,
had the arms restored to his command and
reported his men again "for duty," The
three prisoners wore taken to Albuquerque
and turned over to the civil authorities, to
be tried before the District Court of the
second judicial district, over which Judge
Sidney A. Dubbell then presided. Otie
fine morning the prison door was found
open, and the birds had flown away, It is
supposed that the boys of the New Mexico
Vols, had aided them in their escape and
flight to Chihuahua, where they were met by
our informant in the summer of 18133. It
will thus le seen that the placer mines at
the Jicarilla were already baptised in Llood
many years ago, and as it is an old saying
of prospectors that no mine can flourUU
until some body in the vicicifyj,
" died with bis boots ox ,
those mines are bound to flourish and grow
to fume and notoriety. Ontt thing iiccr

A G rm tn Tanner living near Des Moihes
Iowa, had his barn insured for $500 which
was $300 more than it was worth. Not
long dgo it was burned and he demanded
the full amount ot the policy. The com
pany offered to settle for $200, and on re
ceiving the refusal, they built a new barn
for him. A week or so ago a life insurance
agent cUei uptn him lo lave lis
wife's life insured for $500, but the old
fellow replied: "No. my pnm vas insured
or five hundred dollars, und ven it purned
down dey pay me no five hundred dollurs,
but build me a new para. Now, I get
miue frau insured for one thousand dullnr.
und she dios. Den you give me no thousand
dollars, but you make me take another old
Dutch vowman. Don't vot you make me
do. I don't want mine frau insured."

Recent developments have convinced the
people of Tucson, at least, that the proposi
tion of the Star to remove the Indians cut
ef the Territory and of turning them over
to the military until that end cun be attain
ed, is a good one, (Mum's foolish insinua
tions, through his organ, the Citizen, that
