Mr. Fernandez to Mr. Morgan.

Mr. Minister: I have the honor to communicate to your excellency that Col. Adolfo T. Valle, under date of the 18th instant, reports from Chihuahua, by telegraph, to the department of war, that the band of savage Indians, under command of Victoria, has been completely defeated, 70 of their number being killed and as many more made prisoners, the said Victoria being among the former. He also reports that the Sub-lieutenant Zuniga had defeated another band of Indians, taking from them seven horses, and that Lieutenant Altamirano had captured Saturnino Martinez and five other Indians, famous robbers, who had been devastating the States of Chihuahua and Durango.

This occasion affords me the opportunity to renew to your excellency the assurances of my very distinguished consideration.
