Whi'e encamped on ihe 24th of April,
at a spring near the Spanish Trail, we
were surprised by the smlon appeatanee
among ns'of two Mcxieai s; a man and
a boy llie name of the man was An
dreas Futntas, and that of the boy (a
handsome lad eleven years, old) Pablo
Hernandez. With a cavalcade ofabout
thirty horses, they had cone out fiom
Poebbnle los Angelos, near She Pacific;
had lost half uf their an nials, stolen
I13' the Indians, and sought my camp for
aid. ("arson and Godey, to of mv-j

1 he .'A'oxw an ; am, w ell mounted the
ihtee set olfon the irftil.. Iu the even
ing Fuemas returned, his horse hav ing
faded; but Carson and Godey continued
ihe pursuit.
In th'i afternoon of the next day. a
warwhoop was heard, such as Indian
make when returnisg from a victor. ous
enterprize: and soon Carson and Godey
appeared drivirfg before them a band
of horses, recognized hy Futntas to be
a rnrt of those they had lost. Two
bloody scalp, dangling from the end of
Godey's gun, announced that they I d
overtaken thu Indians n wtll a the
horses. Tliey had continued the pur
suit alone after Fueiitas left them, and
towards ivchtfall en eied the m uniains
into v hich the trail icd. After s inset
the moon gave ligh'. aud they followed
the trail bv moonl ght, until la' e in the

and was d.hVult to lid low.- Here they
