WAR OF 1812-1814. 



GENERAL ORDERS. 



The President of the United States having, in conformity to an 
act of Congress, required a draft of 14,000 men, as tlie quota of Penn- 
sylvania, towards the detachment of 100,000 militia, tlie Governor 
is desirous, with promptitude, to perform all the duties which the 
Constitution and laws, principle and patriotism, assign him He 
feels his high responsibility. He knows the ardent heart — warm 
zeal of the Pennsylvania militia ; and liis sensibilities are alive to the 
honor of his Country. 

The revolution of America, that great and mighty struggle, which 
issued in giving to the United States, that place among the poAvers 
of tlie earth, to which the laws of nature and of nature's God enti 
tied them, had scarcely been consummated, when the King over 
whom we had been triumphant, began an invasion of our rights and 
property, which has almost uninterruptedly been continued, and 
yearly aggravated in kind and in degree. Kemonstrance has followed 
remonstrance, but they "have been only answered by repeated in- 
jury " and new outrage. Their promises, their written engagements, 
their plighted faith have all been wantonly violated. These wrongs 
have been so long endured that our motives have been mistaken, 
and our national character misrepresented. Our forbearance has 
been called cowardice. Our love of peace a slavish fear to encounter 
the dangers of war. We know that these representations have no 
foundation in truth; but it is time that our enemies, that our 
friends, that the world should know we are not degenerated sons of 
gallant sires. 

For nearly thirty years, we have been at peace with all the nations 
of the earth. The gales of prosperity and the full tide of hapinness 
have borne us along; while the storm of war has been desolating 
the greater part of the civilized world, and inundated it with the 
bitter waters of affliction. All the means, which wisdom and pa- 
triotism could devise, have been in vain resorted to, in the hope of 
preserving peace. The cup of patience, of humiliation and long suf- 
ifering has been filled to overflowing; and the indignant arm of an 
injured people must be raised to dash it to tlie earth, and grasp the 
avenging sword. 



532 WAR OF 1812-14. 

Ill the cultivation of the earth, and in manufacturing and trans- 
porting its products, tlie people of tiie United States have been hon- 
estly, usefully, and harmlessly employed, and for many years have 
we been feeding the nation whose navy "has plundered our seas, 
ravaged our coasts, and destroyed the lives of our people," our 
ability and disposition to serve tliem has wlietted their commercial 
jealousy and monopolizing animosity. It is our property that has 
been plundered — it is our rights that have been invaded— it is the 
persons of our friends, relatives, and countrymen, that have been 
" taken captive on the high seas," and constrained " to bear arms 
against their country : to become the executioners of their friends 
and brethren, or fall, themselves, by their hands." It Is our flag 
that has been bathed in our waters— made red with the blood of our 
fellow-citizens. Every gale from the ocean wafts to our ears the 
sighs— the groans of our impressed seamen, demanding retribution. 
It is our homes and firesides that have been invaded by the "merci- 
less Indian savages," who have been instigated to pollute our sacred 
soil with hostile feet, and tomahawk our citizens reposing in peace 
in the bosom of our country. The seeds of discord have been sown 
amongst our people by an accredited 8py of the British government, 
at a time, too, when the relations of peace and amity were subsist- 
ing between our own and that government, founded on reiterated 
assurances from them of national esteem and friendship. If ever 
a nation had justifiable cause of war, that nation is the United 
States. If ever a people had motives to fight, we are that people. 
Our government, the watchful guardians of our welfare, have 
sounded the alarm— they have called upon us to gird on our swords 
and be ready to go forth and meet our enemies. Let us hasten to 
obey the government of our choice, and rally around the consti- 
tuted authorities of the Union. Let an honorable zeal glow in our 
bosoms as we eagerly i)ress forward to render our services. It would 
give the Governor inexpressible satisfaction if Pennsylvania would 
volunteer her quota. May each State animate the others, and every 
citizen act as if the public weal, the national honor, and independ- 
ence, rested on his single arm. The example of the Heroes and 
Statesmen of our revolution, and the rich inheritance their courage 
and wisdom achieved, cannot fail to urge all who love their coun- 
try, to flock around her standard. Upborne by the right hands of 
freemen, planted in the sacred soil their valor won, and consecrated 
by a righteous cause, this nation may well go forth " with a firm 
reliance on the protection of Divine Providence," and a conscious 
belief that the arm of the Lord of Hosts, the strength of the mighty 
one of Israel, will be on our side. 

The last api)eal being now to be made by an injured and indignant 
nation, it remains for the militia and volunteers of Pennsylvania, 
by a prompt cooperation with her sister tates, to render efficient

the measures which are or may hereafter be adopted by the United 
States Government. 

The Adjutant General is charged with the necessary organization 
of tlie quota of the State comformably to the following plan : 

1st. There shall forthwith be drafted, in the manner prescribed 
hy law, 14,000 militia officers and privates, to be formed into two 
divisions, four brigades, and twenty-two regiments. The offer 
of service to the Governor of any tlank company or companies 
attached to any regiment, of a number equal to the number of mil- 
itia required to be drafted from such regiment, may be accepted in 
substitution of such draft from the regiment. 

The corps of Artillery, Cavalry, Riflemen, and Infantry shall be 
in the following general proportions, as nearly as practicable : 

Artillery, 700 Riflemen, 1,400 

Cavalry, 700 Infantry, 11,200 

2nd. The whole quota required shall be apportioned among the 
several divisions of the State, agreeably to a detail to be furnished 
by the Adjutant General. 

Tlie quotas of tlie several divisions of the State shall be formed 
into two divisions for tlie present service. 

The quotas of the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and 
seventh divisions of the State, shall form the first division for service, 
under the command of Major General Isaac "Worrell, a Brigadier 
General from tlie first division and a Brigadier General from the 
third division of the State. 

The quotas of the eightli, ninth, tenth, eleventh, twelfth, thir- 
teenth, fourteenth, fifteentii, and sixteenth divisions of the State 
shall form the second division for service, under the command of 
Major General Adamson Tannehill, witli a Brigadier General from 
the second division and a Brigadier General from the fourth divi- 
sion of the State. 

3rd. The men shall be mustered and inspected as soon as the drafts 
are made, and without delay returns shall be made to the Adjutant 
General, who shall thereupon transmit copies to the Secretary at 
War. 

When the organization of the detachment shall be effected the 
respective corps will be exercised under the officers set over them — 
Drafted militia, by their proper officers ; volunteers, as prescribed 
by law. The corps (either of drafted militia or of volunteers) will 
not remain embodied, nor be considered as in actual service, until 
by subsequent orders, tliey are directed to take the field.

hundred in three weeks' time ; we are ready to march at a moment's 
warning, witli the exception of arms, those we have at present be- 
long to the Fiftieth regiment, and we are attached to the Twenty- 
fourth regiment, and are compelled to give them up to the Fiftieth 
regiment. I applied to the Twenty-fourth regiment and I cannot 
get any from that quarter ; indeed the arms we have at present are 
not fit for service. I, therefore, hope your Excellency will consider 
our situation, and furnish us with arms.

George Mayer, &c., to Gov. Snyder. 

Lancaster, 25th May, 1812. 

IJis Excellency, the Commander-in-Chief : 

Sir : During the long space of time wlierein other nations, un- 
der tlie scourge of ambitious and profligate i)rinces, have been the 
victims of destructive wars, our favored country, by a judicious 
l)olicy, has been sustained in the almost undisturbed enjoyment of 
happy peace. But in this singular age of revolutions, the convulsed 
state of the world at length threatens to involve our peaceful re- 
gions in the general vortex ; and the hostile encroachments on our 
sovereignty by nations aiTogantly presuming power, and unmind- 
ful of right, as well as past events yet too recent to have been for- 
gotten, has rendered it necessary that the republic be placed into an 
attitude to support its dignity and maintain its independence. 

To contribute to this end the Lancaster Plialanx, commanded by 
(Captain James Humes, under the impulse that led their ancestors 
of glorious memory into an arduous and then almost hopeless con- 
test have this day unanimously resolved on a voluntary tender of 
their service to their country. 

AVe, the undersigned, having been appointed a committee for the 
purpose, hereby, in the name and on behalf of the said corps, with 
pleasure tender their services to the Governor, as part of the quota 
to be detached from this Commonwealth, and as such are prepared 
to march, completely armed and equipped, at the required notice. 

Felicitating the Commander-inChief on the patriotic ardor that 
pervades our country at this eventful crisis, we remain, 
Your Excellency's most obedient,

Capt. Henry Jarrett to Gov. Snyder. 

LoTV^ER Nazareth Township, June 2, 1812. 
To His Excellency, Simon Snyder, Governor of Pennsylvania : 

Sir : I have the honor to inform you that the troop of Cavalry under 
my command have unanimously agreed to tender to you their ser- 
vices, as a part of the quota of the Seventy-first regiment required 
by General Orders lately issued. When our country is insulted by 
foreign nations, when our citizens are murdered in our own waters 
by the British, when our fellow-citizens are taken captive on the 
high seas, and compelled to bear arms against their country, to be- 
come the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall them- 
selves by their hands, and when internal enemies threaten a disolu- 
tion of our happy Union, it is time for those who care their country 
and who are ready to die in its defense to be up and doing. Under 
this conviction, sir, the troop I have the honor to command, alive 
to the interest and honor of their country, and convinced of the 
wrongs, the injustice, and the accumulated insults heaped upon us 
by the British government, have determined to offer to their coun- 
try their services and their lives, if required, in defense of its violated 
rights. I have in charge from them to state to you, sir, that we 
will be ready, at a moment's warning, to go on any service our 
country may call us, to defend and preserve those rights and liber- 
ties which were secured to us by the heroes of '76. We have at 
present forty-eight men in the troop, and, if I am not very much 
mistaken— indeed, each man will glory in an opportunity of defend- 
ing their country against the wrongs and injuries heaped upon us 
by foreign nations, particularly the piratical nation of Great Britain, 
whose officers have basely and treacherously murdered our citizens 
in our own waters, and whose agents use the scalping-knife and 
tomahawk against our innocent and helpless citizens on our fron- 
tiers. 

I have the honor to be, sir, with much respect, your obedient 
servant. 

By order of my troop, 

HENRY JARRETT, 
Captain.

in-Chief of the Militia of Pennsylvania: 

Sir : On behalf of the " Pittsburgh Republican Volunteers," at- 
tached to the One Hundred and Forty-first regiment of Pennsyl- 
vania Militia, I beg leave to tender you their services as part of the 
14,000 men required to be furnished by this State, agreeably to the 
orders of tlie President of the United States. 

At this eventful crisis of our national affairs, they conceive it 
to be their duty as citizens of the only free government in the 
world, and as supporters of the present administration, to step forth 
with their mite in defense of those sacred rights, for which their 
forefathers fought, bled, and died ; that should occasion require, 
they may have an apportunity of proving in the field, that they are 
not the degenerate sons of gallant sires. 

The muster-roll enclosed, contains the names of sucli as could, 
at a very short notice, be procured to sign, and in the course of a 
few days, I have no doubt, it might be signed by the whole corps, 
amounting to fifty-three, officers included. 

I have the honor to be, very respectfully. 
Your fellow citizen, &c.,

Lieut. Col. John S^nith to Gov. Snyder. 
Sir : It is with great pleasure I have to announce to you the vol- 
untary tender of service of the First regiment of Pennsylvania cav- 
alry, whose wish it is to be considered as part of the quota of Penn- 
sylvania, under the requisition authorized by the President of the 
United States. What makes the offer peculiarly patriotic, is the 
conllicting political opinions entertained by those corps who com- j|[' 
pose tiie regiment cordially uniting in supporting the honor and 
rights of our common country. 

The resolution , wliich I have the honor to enclose to the Governor, 
exhibits the solicitude of the regiment not to be disunited or subject 
to a draft, but, if it is his pleasure not to accept of the offer of the 
entire regiment, that, in that case, the requisite number wanted be 
supplied by troops under the command of their respective officers. 
I am, sir, with sentiments of high consideration and respect. 
Your obedient servant, 

JNO. SMITH, 
Lieutenant Colonel Commandant. 

At a meeting of the First regiment of cavalry, convened at the 
house of Mr. Rubican, June 2, 1812, the following resolution was 
unanimously adopted : 

liesolved, That this regiment offer its services to the Commander- 
in-Chief of the militia of Pennsylvania, to be called into the field 
either in a body or by troops in substitution of a draft from the 
regiment ; and that the commandant be requested to transmit to 
the Governor a copy of this resolution. 

PniLADELPUiA, June 3, 1812. 



N. B. Boileau to Col. John Smith. 

Harrisburg, July 9th, 1812, 
Sir : I have to inform you that the tender of service made to the 
Governor by the First regiment of the Pennsylvania cavalry, under 
date of the 10th of June, has been duly received and appreciated. 
Tlie reason why yours of the 24th of June was not sooner acknowl- 
edged, was on account of the Governor's and my absence from the 
seat of government. 
The first tender of service made to the Governor was from the 



WAR OF 1812-14. 545 

volunteer company at this place, and immediately after the issuing 
the Governor's general orders, in that case the Governor thought it 
proper to return them a special answer. 

You can easily perceive the inconvenience of giving a particular 
answer to every volunteer company that might tender their service. 
It would occupy more of the Governor's time and attention than could 
be spared from his various and arduous official duties. The subject 
also would have been so completely exhausted as to render it almost 
impossible to have avoided a repetition of the same sentiments and 
ideas. The Governor, therefore, instructed tlie Adjutant General 
to write a circular to the different brigade inspectors requesting 
the tender services should be made a general return to him of tlie 
volunteers who had tendered their services, he would then notice 
their patriotism in a suitable manner. 

Very respectfully,

Philadelphia, June 6, 1812. 
Sir : Being impressed with the opinion that you did not receive 
my first letter, bearing date the 19th of May last, from which I re- 
ceived no answer. I directed it to Harrisburg, to your honor. It 
contains the offered services of the Independent Blues, of which 
I have the honor to command. I hope, sir, you will receive it, and 
answer it as soon as most convenient. We have formed the Phila- 
delphia Militia Legion, and I hope in a few days we shall have the 
honor to offer their services, and have our own field officers. 
' With respect, I remain, sir. 

Your humble servant,

not knowing whether the Governor was in Harrisburg or not, I

Lewis Bush to Gov. Snyder. 

Philadelphia, June 9, 1812. 
Simon Sxyder, Esquire, Sir : 

Agreeably to a resolution of the legionary board of officers, I was 
requested to obtain information from you concerning the command 
of the legion, in case they tender their service to you. The officers 
are of an opinion that they will be commanded by some other col- 
onel. They well know that they come under the notice of the gen- 
eral staff, but are not willing to be commanded by any other regi- 
mental officers but their own. 1 am of an opinion that the legion 
can tender Lheir service by law as a separate body from the other 
regiments. I also inclose a copy from our minutes. An answer 
from you to the above will be thankfully received by, 

Your obedient humble servant, 

LEWIS RUSH. 

Resolved, That Col. Rush be desired to obtain information from 
the Governor, whether, upon a tender of the services to him of the 



WAR OF 1812-14. 547 

legion, they will be commanded by their own officers, or placed under 
a separate command. Upon that inquiry being made, Col. Rush is 
requested to call a special meeting of the legion.

The Leliigh Rifle company, composed of more than fifty brave

To his Excellency, Simon Snyder, Governor of Pennsylvania : 
At a crisis like the present while wars and rumors of wars are 
abroad in the earth, and the two great belligerents continue to add. 
insult to injury, it becomes the sons of Columbia to arouse from 
their apathy and stand forth in the defence of their country's rights. 
Rights which have been dearly bought by the blood and treasure 
of our forefathers. (Although we deprecate war with all its train 
of concomitant evils) yet we, as a troop or band of brothers, are 
ready to stand forth in the defence of our country's just rights, 
and do frankly tender our services as a volunteer corps, to be at your 
command for the legalized time required by the militia law. 
With sentiments of due esteem, 

I rest, affectionately yours, &c., 

JAMES RALSTON", 
Captain, Cavalry.

Lieut. Col. John Smith to Gov. Snyder. 

Philadelphia, June 24, 1812. 
Simon Snyder, Esq. : 

Sir : I had the honor of addressing you by letter the 10th instant 
a copy of which, together with the resolution to which it refers, you 
have herewith. Not receiving an answer, has induced me to suppose 
that it has been miscarried. The subject to which it refers being of 
importance to those concerned as well to the public, must plead my 
apology for thus troubling you. 

With great respect, I am, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

JOHN SMITH, 
Lieut. Col. First Megiment, Penw'a Cavalry. 



[Copy] 

Sir : It is with great pleasure I have to announce to you the vol- 
untary tender of service of the First regiment of Pennsylvania 
cavalry, whose wish is to be considered as part of the quota of Penn- 
sylvania under the requisition authorized by the President of the 
United States. What makes the offer peculiarly patriotic is, the 
conflicting political opinion entertained by those corps who compose 
the regiment, cordially uniting in supporting the honor and right 
of our common country. 

The resolution which I have the honor to inclose to the Governor, 
exhibits the solicitude of the regiment not to be disunited or subject 
to a draft. But if it be his pleasure not to accept of the offer of the 
entire regiment, that, in that case, the requisite number wanted, be 
supplied by troops under the command of their respective officers. 
With sentiments of higli consideration and respect, 
Your obedient servant, 

JOHN SMITH, 
Lieut. Col. Commandant. 
Philadelphia, June 10, 1812. 

Besolved unanimously, That this regiment offer its services to the 
Commander-in-Chief of the militia of Pennsylvania, to be called 
into the field, either in a body or by troops, in substitution of a draft 
from the regiment, and that the commandant be requested to trans- 
mit to the Governor a copy of this resolution.

GOVERNOR Snyder: Your Excellency's general orders of tlie 
oth September instant, I had the honor to receive on the 8th instant, 
whicli being tlie day the brigade inspector leaves home to commence 
the march of volunteers from my brigade. Considering myself, 
under these circumstances, required to act, and by doing my duty, 
in some cases, would have to perform the duty of brigade inspector. 
This day,*in Fifty-fifth regiment, I had a conference with the offi- 



WAR OF 1812-14. 553 

cers of a volunteer Rifle company. Elected and a return made for 
commissions, they desire to be accepted in substitution of the draft 
for s"* regiment : Provided, 1st, that their commissions be received 
by tliem before the march does commence ; 2d, their camp equipage 
furnished to them before they march or, at furthest, Bedford; Mi 
that their services may be accepted in the bounds of tlie Union, and 
not beyond the line, unless by their own consent. Then they de- 
sire me to communicate and through me wish your Excellency's 
answer in that day usual for your Excellency to communicate. In 
the mean time, I have appointed the senior officer, &c., will imme- 
diately proceed to the next regiment, &c. I doubt not but the 
quotas will commence their march from their respective regiments

pleasure and arrangements, to be furnished with tents and other 
field equipage for this detachment, consisting of about one hundred' 
and twenty officers, included by the time before mentioned, 22d 
inst., one half at McConnelsburgh, the rest at Bloody Run. Should 
your Excellency honor me with an answer through your secretary

with an answer by him would come safe to me, whilst I beg leave

Hakrisburg, May 14, 1812. 

To Samuel Agnew, Captain of the Harrisburg Volwiteers : 

Sir : The prompt offer by the Harrisburg Volunteers to serve as 
part of the quota of Pennsylvania militia (in substitution of the 
draft of the regiment to which they are attached) required to be 
held in readiness for active service, under the order of tlie President 
of the United States, as contained in General Orders promulgated 
this morning through the Adjutant General, proves that whenever 
any foreign power attempts to invade the inestimable rights acquired 
by the patriotism and valor of the heroes of the Revolution, these 
men are prepared to defend the sacred trust and glorious inheritance 
that descends upon them, and that "we are not degenerate sons of

offering the first fruit of patriotism. It is, I trust, a happy omen of 
an abundant harvest throughout the State.

JOHN GOODMAN TO GOV. SNYDER. 



Philadelphia, June 17, 1812. 

To his Excellency, Simon Snydek, Esq., Governor of the Common- 
wealth of Pennsylvania : 

Sin: Permit me to discharge a duty which I think I owe the 
State, by making a brief statement of the condition in which the 
Pennsylvania State Arsenal is found at the present time. 

On a view of the lot, on which the arsenal (so-called) is erected, 
on Saturday last, I found the western part of the same covered with 
putrid, stagnant water, of the depth of some inches, the cause of 
which may be attributed to the raising of the adjoining streets. 
The lot may, at this time, with propriety, be termed a nuisance, 
Avhicli, unless speedily removed, must endanger the health of the 
neighborhood. The public property contained in the arsenal has, 
also, suffered severely from the water, which hath risen above its 
floor. Within the space of one year or eighteen months, the State 
has sustained considerable damages in the perishable articles con- 
tained in the building, in addition to the damage suffered by the 
carriages from the continual dampness of the place. By the heavy 
fall of rain yesterday, I have no doubt the water must have risen 
considerable. 

Colonel Ferguson, who is the bearer of this letter, will give you 
further information on this subject. 

I am, Sir, respectfully. 

Your obedient servant, &c., 

JOHN GOODMAN.

To Board of Health : 

I am attending to the complaint of those residing in Juniper street 
near Centre square ; but take liberty of representing the arsenal lot 
of ground as comprising a part of the grievance complained of, three 
fourths of which is completely inundated. Col. Ferguson will, no 
doubt, take it into consideration. 

I am, &c., 

JOHN SLATER. 

I expect that the water is considerable above the floor of the can- 
non-house. 



Js. B. BOILEAU TO ADJUTANT GEN. REED. 



Harrisburg, July 14, 1812. 

Sir : I am instructed by the Governor, to direct you to issue 
orders immediately to the respective brigade inspectors, to inspect 
the public arms within the bounds of their brigades, and to have 
a sufhcient number of them put into complete repair, ready for de- 
livery to the men drafted, whenever they may be called into actual 
service. For this purpose the said brigade inspectors shall direct 
the captains, or commanding officers of companies in the bounds of 
which the army may be found, to have such of them as may require 
it, cleaned and put in comi^lete repair. The expense incurred in the 
aforesaid cleaning and repairs to be paid out of the regimental 
funds ; but if the funds be inadequate then the accounts for doing 
the same, with proper vouchers, to be exhibited to the accounting 
officers of the Commonwealtli, by the proper brigade inspectors. 
The captains or commanding officers of the companies to be further 
directed, to make previous specific agreements with the person or 
persons whom they may employ to perform the above service ; and 
the said brigade inspectors to be further instructed to make return 
to you, of any deficiency of arms in their brigades to supply the present 
draft ; a copy of which you will transmit to the Governor witti the 
least possible delay. 

Very respectfully. &c.,

To AViM.iAM Clakk, Esq. : 

Actual hostilities having been commenced by the forces of the 
Kinfj of Great Britain, on the waters of Lake Erie, within the juris- 
diction of tlie United States, and an invasion of the territories of 
this State threatened, I order and direct you, the said William 
Clark, forthwith to have in readiness for field duty two classes of 
your brigade of militia not already drafted under the requisition of 
the President of the United States, in the manner and order pres- 
cribed by law. And that you order, from time to time, such portion 
of those classes, (or of flanl, or other companies as may volunteer 
their services in substitution) as may be deemed sufficient by Brig. 
Gen. .Tohn Kelso, to guard and protect the inhabitants, to repair 
without delay to the most suitable place of rendezvous, to be at the 
furtlier disposition of the said Brig. Gen. Kelso ; which detachment 
or detachments, at the station or stations to which they may be or- 
dered sliall be under the immediate command of such officer or officers 
as'is directed by the twenty-fifth section of the Act of Assembly of 
April 9, 1807. And you are further authorized and directed to have 
purchased for the use of the troops on service, any quantity of pow- 
der not exceeding one thousand pounds' weight, together with a suf- 
ficient quantity of lead for ball. The amount wliereof witli other 
expenses incident to the service, to be paid at this place on produc- 
ing accounts accompanied by proper vouchers.

Harrisburg, July 16, 1812. 
Sir : Yours of the 8th instant has been received, but the letter 
to which you allude containing an affidavit has not come to hand. 
I am instructed by the Governor to state to you, that if the fact be 
true that Moses Kilpatrick be an alien, he is under a legal disability 
to hold a commission in the militia. You will, tlierefore, withhold 
his commission until you have further instructions from tlie Gov- 
ernor, and, in the meantime, forward a copy of the affidavit you have 
mentioned, and any other information you may obtain, the Gov- 
ernor will then direct what proceedings are to be had.

N. B. BOILEAU TO JOHN GOODMAN. 



Harrisburg, July 16, 1812. 

Sir : In answer to yours of the * to the Governor, I have 

to state that the Governor feels every disposition to place the military 
establishment of the State, both as it regards discipline and arms, 
in as respectable a situatiori as is within the limits of his legal power. 
On perusing the eleventh section of the supplement to the militia 
law, passed 26th March, 1808, there appears to be power given to 
him, at least incidentally, to direct, if necessary, the repairs of the 
arsenal carriages, &c. Previously, however, to his giving such di- 
rections, it appears proper for him to ascertain what repairs are 
necessary, and a probable estimate of the expense of such repairs, 
and whether tbe fund appropriated for that purpose is adequate to 
the object. In the section above alluded to, it is directed that the 
expenses of such repairs shall be paid by the county treasurer out 
of the exempt flues. The Governor wishes information on the 
above points before he gives any order on the subject. 

"Very respectfully, &c., 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 

P. S. Your letter, no doubt, was written with the knowledge of 
the commanding officers of the regiment of artillery. You, of course, 
will shew them the above. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO P. FARKELLY.

Sir : Yours of the 8th instant was received by this day's mail. I 
have laid it, together with your resolutions relative to quieting dis- 
trusts which may exist among the Indians on the Allegheny, before 
the Governor. He approves the measures you have taken with re- 
gard to arms and ammunition. I have to state to you that your 
wishes have been, in some degree at least, anticipated. In conse- 
quence of a representation made to the Governor by General Kelso, 
he has ordered a portion of the militia of the First brigade, Six- 
teenth division, into actual service, to be stationed at such points as 



* The letter was mislaid and the date not recollected. 



558 WAR OF 1812-14. 

General Kelso shall deem most expedient. We are also now en- 
gaged in packing up in boxes 500 muskets, together with 200 pounds 
of lead, 5,(t00 Hints and six kegs of powder. That being all the am- 
munition that could be procured at this place. The Governor has 
also directed Mr. Clark, the Brigade Inspector, to procure a further 
supply of those articles wherever they can most conveniently be had. 
The muskets, &c., above mentioned, I expect will leave this place, 
for Erie, to-morrow. Cartridge boxes also would have been sent 
had there been any belonging to the State, or could they have been 
procured. You must endeavor to accommodate yourselves as well 
as you can, by substituting pouches instead of boxes until provision 
is made to supply you otherwise. It is much to be regretted that 
the Legislature did not put it into the power of the Governor to 
place the State in a more defensible situation. 

Very respectfully, ttc,

Sir: Mr. Henry, of Nazareth, manufactured a number of mus- 
kets for the use of the Commonwealth, a part of which is still in 
his possession. The Governor directs you to open a box or two of 
them, and examine in what state they are ; also, how many boxes 
there are, and the number in each box, and whether there are any 
that are not in boxes, and if there are, their number and situation. 
And tliat you will, as early as possible, make report of the result of 
your examination to the Governor or to me. The present situation 
of our country is such as to render a prompt attention to the above 
subject necessary.

P. A. Browne, Esq., Philadelphia: 

Sir : Yours of the 13th instant was received this morning. I 
have to regret that I cannot comply with your request, without a 
departure from the established usage of the office, which is never to 
suffer a certificate to go out of the office without attaching it our- 
selves, by means of the seal itself, to the paper or document it is 
designed to authenticate. The keeping of the Great Seal is confided 
to me, and I am responsible for the application of it, and cannot 
transfer that responsibility to another person. I wish to be clearly 
understood as not having the smallest apprehension that you would 
use the certificate improperly ; but you will easily perceive the in- 
conveniences that might result, were I to deviate in a single in- 
stance from the established usage. I will only add that it appears 
to me necessary, to give authority to the document, it ought to bear 
the mark of the seal itself, or that the certificate itself should mani- 
festly appear to have been attached to the document by means of 
the Great Seal. 

Yery respectfully, «&c.,

bered. The muskets have a corresponding number marked near 
the screw plate. The whole number, 504. In the different boxes is 
distributed 200 pounds of lead. Those boxes are marked. In one 
box there are 1000 flints, which box is also marked. There are also 
two small boxes, containing three kegs of powder each, amounting 
in the whole to 150 pounds. The best muskets were selected. 
They are rusty and want cleaning and oiling, which would have 
been done here, but the Governor was apprehensive it would have 
occasioned too much delay. It will occupy but a short time for 



560 WAR OF 1812-14. 

eacli mini to clean his own musket. In the distribution of them, 
you will be governed by the law and your own sound discretion^, 
aided by tiie general and other field officers of the division or brig' 
ade. Knowing the time of the wagons leaving this place you 
will be able to calculate nearly the time of their arrival at Mead- 
ville. It would, therefore, be desirable that you should be there to 
receive them, and to give a receii)t to the wagoners for the safe de- 
livery of the muskets and other articles above mentioned. 

Very respectfully. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 

P. S. It is suggested for your consideration, whether Waterford 
being on the turnpike and the head of the navigation of French 
creek, would not be a proper place of deposit for the arms. 

N. B. A letter of similar import to the above, was sent by the 
wagon. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO GE^. WILLIAM REED. 



Habrisburg, August 18, 1812. 
Gen. William Reed : 

Sir : By this morning's mail I received a letter from the Gov- 
ernor. The following extracts from his letter will explain his views 
relative to the enquiries submitted to him : " I am of opinion that 
the Adjutant General, in his return to the Secretary at War, need 
not make a specific or detailed account of deficiencies of arms and 
other military equipments of the drafted militia and volunteers, he 
may say— That some deficiences appear to exist, but that they would, 
as promptly as possible, be supplied." Again, with regard to the 
Brigadier Generals, he writes : " If I am to designate the Brigadier 
Generals that are to serve under the Major Generals Worrall and 
Tannehill, the rule that obtains generally must prevail in this case. 
I, tiierefore, designate the oldest brigadiei-s In each of the two divi- 
sions mentioned in general orders of May last." It appeared on 
examining our military book, when you were here, that William 
Duncan was the oldest Brigadier in the First division, and William 
Harris, of the Third division; Samuel Smith, of the Second divi- 
sion, and Jacob Hilghman, of the Fourth division. Those, there- 
fore, I suppose, are to be the Generals. You will report them ac- 
cordingly, and perhaps it would be proper for you to give them 



WAR OF 1812-14. 561 

notice. It would be desirable that you should, as early as possible, 
make your return to the Secretary at War. 
Very respectfully, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO COL. EBENEZER FERGUSON 



Harrisburg, Augicst 21, 1812. 
Col. Ebenezer Ferguson : 

Sir: By a letter received from you some time since; it appears 
that the artillery in the city is in a bad situation, particularly as 
it regards their exposure to the weather. I wish to be informed 
what would be the probable expense of erecting a temporary build- 
ing to secure them from the injury of the weather, and if a site for 
such building could not be procured without much difficulty. I 
wish, also, to be informed whether or not there are some apartments 
in the State house unoccupied, in which, for the present, the neces- 
sary apparatus for the artillery could be deposited. I have one fur- 
ther enquiry to make, that is, whether each company of artillery has 
not one piece fit for actual service, in case of necessity ; if not, the 
probable expense of putting such a number in a situation for actual 
use. I expect the Governor here to-morrow, and, therefore, request 
your answer as early as convenient, that I may submit the same to 
his consideration. 

Very respectfully, Sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



GENERAL ORDERS. 



Harrisburg, August 25, 1812. 
The President of the United States having, through the Secretary 
at War, and General Dearborn, under date, respectively, of the 13tli 
inst., required a detachment of 2,000 militia to be marched, with 
the least possible delay, from the north-western parts of Pennsylva- 
nia to Buffalo, in the State of New York, duty and feeling direct 
a prompt compliance with a requisition, giving scope for action to 
the patriotism evinced by that portion of our citizen soldiers who 
36— Vol. XII. 



r^y2 WAR OF 1812-14, 

liave volunteered their services, under general orders of 12th May 
last in substitution of the draft lequired of the State. To obey this 
call! in defence of rights sacred to freemen, to avenge the injuries 
of t'lie nation, and defend the cause of suffering humanity, the vol- 
unteers of Pennsylvania will not hesitate a moment to meet the 
avowed enemy of those rights, not only within the bounds of the 
United States, but will, without those limits, with ardor seek, and 
with the determination characteristic of freemen, punish the un- 
l>rovoked invaders of our rights and property. The Governor with 
pleasure embraces the present occasion to perpetuate the honorable 
fame ac(iuired by those gallant sons of Pennsylvania who volun- 
teered their services, by naming the commandants of those patri- 
otic corps and companies, and the division and brigade to which 
they severally belong :

For obvious reasons the adjutant general has orders to designate 
for service, such of the volunteers as can, with the least possible 
delay be marched to the scene of action ; and is charged with the 
organization of the detachment of 2,000 men, conformably to the 
following plan : The detachment to constitute a brigade, to con. 
sist of four regiments, and each regiment to consist of two bat- 
talions, to be arranged byjthe Adjutant General at the place of ren- 
dezvous. 

The general rendezvous will be at Meadville, to which place the 
volunteers, composing the detachment, will march with the requi- 
site expedition, so that they be there on the 25th day of September 
next. By the twenty-sixth section of the general militia law, 
among other services by them to be performed, it is made the duty

of tlie liiigade inspectors to march each with his proper detachment 
to tlie place of rendezvous. 

Tliese officers are severally required and directed to provide sub- 
sistence, and otlier necessary accommodation for the troops on tlieir 
marcl), and exhibit detailed accounts for settlement and payment, 
to the accountant officers of the Commonwealth. 

Apprised of the generally prevailing desire that those appointed 
to command may be tlie choice of the commanded, the Governor, 
agreeably to the tenth section of a supplement to the militia law, 
passed 26th March, 1808, and the twenty-seventh section of the gen- 
eral militia law, authorizes and directs the officers and privates of 
the detachment, on the day succeeding the 25th day of September 
next, or those who shall have arrived to elect agreeably to the rules 
prescribed by the militia law, one brigadier general ; each regiment 
to elect a colonel commandant; each battalion, one major. The 
brigadier general to appoint his own brigade major. The field offi- 
cers of each regiment shall appoint their respective regimental staffs. 
To expedite the expedition in discharge of his duty, the Adjutant 
General will attend and deliver to the officers elect their commis- 

sioiis.

Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO DANIEL SHARP. 



Harrisburg, August 24, 1812. 
Daniel Sharp, Esq. : 

SiH : By your letter of the 4th, to Gen. Reed, now before me, it 
appears you entertain some doubts whether or not the tender of ser- 
vice made by the Philadelphia legion would be accepted by the Gov- 
ernor. 

The first tender of service made under date of June 9, 1812, was 
connected with a condition that the legion should be under the com- 
mand of their own ofiicers. It was not in the power of the Gov- 
ernor to say that this should always be the case when in actual ser- 
vice, as exigencies miglit arise in which the Commander-in-Chief of 
the army or detachment to which the legion might be attached, 
might deem it necessary to make a different arrangement. But the 
second tender, made under date of June 27, 1812, being without any 
such condition annexed, it was thought that a special answer of 
acceptance from the Governor was superseded by the general orders. 



WAR OF 1812-14. 565 

in which it was expressed explicitly that such tender would be ac- 
cepted. 

Gen. Reed is now at the seat of government, and will remain here 
a few days, during which time an opportunity will be afforded to 
you for forwarding your returns to liim with more dispatch than to 
Millerstown, bis usual place of residence. 
Very respectfully, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO WILLIAM LINNARD. 



Harrisburg, August 25, 1812. 
William Linnard, Esq., Department Quarter- Master General: 

Sir : Your letter of — inst. has been received by the Governor, 
and I have to inform you that the Governor has issued general 
orders for 2,409 volunteer militia, to rendezvous at Meadville, on the 
25th day of September next. You will, therefore, please to give in- 
structions to the proper officer at Pittsburgh, to furnish the neces. 
sary articles for the use of the troops assembled at that place at the 
time appointed, to insure the number of 2,000. The Governor has 
ordered 2,409 to march. It would, therefore, be expedient to direct 
supplies for the larger number. 

Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 
P. S. If it is not your province to direct camp kettles to be sup- 
plied, please to intimate to C. Irwin, Esq., superintendent military 
stores, to direct them to be furnished.

K. B. BOILEAU TO CALENDER IRVINE. 



Harrisburg, August 25, 1812. 
To Calender Irvine, Superintendeyit Military Stores : 

Sir : Your letter of the 17th instant has been received by the 
Governor, who lias issued general orders for 2409 volunteer militia, 
to rendezvous at Meadville, on the 25tb day |of September next . 
You will, therefore, please to intrust the proper officers to forward 



566 



WAR OF 1812-14. 



to that place a sufficient number of tents, kettles, and other camp 
equipage necessary for the detachment above mentioned, so as to 
be ready at the time ai)pointpd for assembling the troops at Mead- 
ville. There will be in the detachment 1 brigadier, 4 colonels, 8 
majors, 46 captains. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 

P. S. General Reed will be at Meadville to receipt for the articles 
delivered. To ensure the number of 2,000 the Governor has ordered 
out the humber of 2,409. It might be prudent to supply for the 
larger number. 



X. B. BOILEAU TO LIEUT. JOHNSON, ASSISTANT 
QUARTER-MASTER. 



Harrisburg, Secretary's Office, August 25, 1812. 

Lieut. Johnson, Assistant Quarter-Master^ Pittsburgh. 

Sir : I herewith enclose to you a copy of a letter from Calender 
Irvine (superintendent of military stores) to the Governor, and 
have to inform you that the Governor has issued general orders for 
2,409 volunteer militia to assemble at Meadville, on the 25th day 
of September next. I have deemed it expedient to give you the 
earliest information of the above circumstances, that you may make 
the necessary arrangements, with the least possible delay, to exfecute 
the orders you may receive from Mr. Irvine, whom I have written 
to on the subject. I hope, however, on perusing the enclosed, 
you will feel justified in proceeding to forward tents to Meadville, 
without waiting for any further instructions, to prevent serious 
inconveniencies that might result, in case the instructions from 
Mr. Irvine might, by some unforeseen delay, not reach you in time. 
Very respectfully. 

Your obedient servant,

Harrisburg, Secretary's Office, August 26, 1812. 
Sir : By the last mail I wrote a letter to you, inclosing a letter from 
Calender Irvine, Esq., superintendent of military stores, in which 
he states that he is directed to furnish tents and other camp equip- 
age for a detachment of 2,000 militia, ordered into service from this 
State. Tlie Governor issued general orders for that purpose yester- 
day, directing the troops to assemble at Meadville on the 25th of 
September next. I deemed it expedient to write to you again on the 
subject, (lest the former letter might have miscarried,) by an express 
who carries out the general orders, to give you an early intimation 
of the circumstance, that you might have an opportunity of making 
arrangements to carry promptly into effect any directions you might 
receive from the superintendent of military stores, to whom I have 
written on the subject. 

Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



GOY. SNYDER TO THE BRIGADE INSPECTORS. 



Sir : You will immediately, on the receipt of the General Orders, 
communicate them to the captains or commanding officers of the 
volunteer companies within the bounds of your brigade, viz : [This 
blank was filled with the names of the commanding officers of the 
companies in the respective brigades,] and give every aid in your 
power to have the companies marched as expeditiously as possible 
to the place of rendezvous (Meadville) mentioned in General Orders. 
The troops will be supplied with rations, tents, and other camp 
equipage, by the United States. Should there be any deficiency of 
arms in any of the volunteer companies, you will supply them out 
of any that may be in the bounds of your brigade. If there cannot 
be a sufficient number found in that way, they will be furnished at 
the place of rendezvous. Every man will take care to supply him- 
self with a blanket and knapsack. It is confidently expected that 
the patriotism of the volunteers is too sincere and ardent to permit 
them to make any objections to crossing the boundary line of the 
United States; otherwise they will render no service to their 
country. 

By order of the Governor.

Sir : I wrote to you by the last mail, enclosing a copy of a letter 
from Gen. Dearborn to Mr. Linnard, dei)uty quarter-master general, 
in wliich he is directed to make arrangements for supplying a de- 
tachment of 2,000 militia, of this State, with rations, &c., until they

thouglit it advisable to write you by the express who carries the 
General Orders of the Governor, issued yesterday, which directs the 
said detachment to rendezvous at Meadville on the 25th of Septem-

rangements for supplying the troops with rations at Meadville, and 
from thence to Buffalo. I have written to Mr. Linnard on the sub-

To William Reed, Esq., Adjutant General of Pennsylvania : 

Sir : You are ordered to attend at Meadville, the rendezvous for 
2,000 vohmteers of this State, ordered into service on the north- 
western frontier of this Commonwealth, under a requisition of the 
proper authority. You will, accordingly, with the least possible 
delay, repair to the said rendezvous, and take command of the de- 
tachment. The citizen soldiers whereof, officers and privates, as 
they shall, from day to day, arrive, are commanded strictly to obey 
and execute all that you shall lawfully order and direct, until a 
Brigadier General and other officers for said detachment shall have 
been el(!cted and commissioned, agreeably to the general orders of 
yesterday. The said Brigadier General having taken the command, 
is ordered and commanded, with the least possible delay, to march 
the brigade under his command to Niagara, and on his arrival, im- 
mediately report himself to the Commanding General of the troops 
at that place.

GOV. SNYDER TO GEN. HENRY DEARBORN. 



Harrisburg, 2Qth Aitgust, 1812. 

To Gen. Henry Dearborn, Commanding the Armtj of the United 
States, Oreenbush, near Albany, in the State of New York: 

Sir : Your request, under authority of the President, of the 13th 
instant, which I received by express from this place, at Selins' Grove, 
on the 21st, that I would order out 2,000 of the north-western mil- 
itia of Pennsylvania, is complied with, as you will perceive by a 
copy of the General Orders, under date of yesterday, which I have 
the honor to inclose. I take the liberty to inclose also a copy of a 
letter to me, on the same subject, from the Secretary at War, be- 
cause of the variance between the two requisitions. You make the 
request under the act of February 28, 1795, under which the militia 
cannot be longer retained in service than three months. The act of 
10th April, 1812, authorizes the retention of militia in service six 
months. The Secretary at War directs that the detachment shall 
consist of the proportions recognized in the order of A pril 15. Your 
letter says : " There will be no use for cavalry nor any artillery, un- 
less supplied with field pieces and apparatus complete." On this 
subject I have, by letter of this day, said to the Secretary at War, 
that under the belief, the object of both was to have detached for 
the service the most efficient force, the General Orders are for vol- 
unteer infantry and riflemen. They are of the military of Pennsyl- 
vania the best equipped and the best disciplined, and, in my opinion, 
the most efflcienffor the service. The number of riflemen is 1,380, 
of infantry 962, giving a surplus equal to any probable deficiency. 
I have the honor to be, sir. 

Your most obedient sei'vant, 

SIMON SNYDER. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO EBENEZER FERGUSON, OF PHILA-

Harrisburg, August 29, 18l2. 

Sir : Y^ours of the 26th I received this morning, which I sub- 
mitted to the Governor, and am instructed to request you to have, 
with as little delay as possible, nine pieces of artillery put in com- 
plete repair, provided that you can get it done, so as that the whole 
expense does not exceed fifty dollars for each piece. Y^'our estimate 
of expense, exclusive of boring, is thirty dollars. On examining 



r-o WAR OF 1812-14. 

the accounts of Mr. Goodman, for boring one of the pieces, as stated 
in the Auditor General's office, is found to be twenty dollars. With 
rt'pard to an arsenal for keeping the cannon, it would appear to me 
that it must remain with the Legislature to direct, if there are no 
apartments in the State House which could be occupied for that 
purpose. I should suppose if the guns were dismounted, and the 
caniages taken apart, one chamber in the court-house would hold 

them. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant,

GOV. SXYDER TO WILLIAM EUSTIS, SECRETARY OF 

WAR. 



Harrisburg, August 26, 1812. 

To Hon. William Eustis, Secretary at War, at the city of Wash- 
ington : 
Sir : Yours, under date of the 13th inst., reached me at Selins 
Grove, the place of ray residence, on the 21st, by express from Har- 
risburg. On Sunday evening, the 23d, I arrived at this place, and yes- 
terday general orders were issued, directing 2000 volunteers militia 
to marcii and rendezvous at Meadville, in the north-western part of 
this State, a copy of which order I have the honor herewith to en- 
close. I also enclose a copy of a letter to me from Gen. Dearborn 
of the same date and on the same subject. I do this because of the 
variation between your letter and the General's. The former re- 
quiring a detachment of military, under the act April 10, 1812, in 
the proportion recognized in the order of April 15th, mider which 
act the military may be retained in service six months. The latter 
makes the recpiisition under the act of Congress of March 28, 1795. 
Under this last act the militia cannot be longer retained in service 
than three months. The General further says, there would be no 
use for cavalry nor artillery unless supplied with field pieces and 
apparatus complete. Under the belief the object of both was to 
have detached for tlie service the most efficient force, the general 
orders are for volunteer infantry and riflemen. They are of the mi- 
litia of Pennsylvania, the best equipped, the best disciplined, and, 
in my opinion, the most efficient for the service. The number of 
riflemen is 1.380, of infantry 962, giving a surplus equal to any 
probable deficiency. The only artillery in a situation to be efficient 
is at Philadelphia, a point to.remote fi'om the>cene of action. If, 



WAR OF 1812-14. 573 

however, the President should deem it necessary to order out a por- 
tion of artillery, upon intimation to me, it will be promptly attended 
to. 

With sentiments of high consideration, 

I am, sir, your most obedient servant, 

SIMOX SXTDER. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO ROBERT SMITH. 



Harrisburg, September 1, 1812. 

Robert Smith, Inspector First Brigade, N'hitli Division, Pennsyl- 
vania Militia : 

Sir : Your letter of the 31st ult., to the Governor, has been re- 
ceived. It was confidently presumed that all those volunteer com- 
panies which had tendered their services to the Governor, were 
completely uniformed, armed, and equipped for service, as it was 
there duty to be; from your letter, however, it appears not to be 
the case. The only alternative now remains that you collect a 
sufficient number of muskets, within the bounds of your brigade, 
^and furnish the men, ordered to march, with them, instead of rifies. 
There are no rifles belonging to the Commonwealth at the disposi- 
tion of the Governor. With regard to blankets, each man must 
supply himself, as well as a knapsack. This certainly can be done 
with little difficulty or expense. Tents and other camp equipage, 
will be furnished at Meadville by the general orders. You perceive 
it will be your duty to provide rations for the men until tliey reach 
Meadville. This you can accomplish by either going forward in ad- 
vance of the detachment from your brigade, or sending forward an 
officer from the detachment, to make contracts for provisions to sup- 
ply the men from day to day, until they reach the place of general 
rendezvous, giving a receipt to the person who furnishes the supply, 
which will be settled at the department of accounts. Tlie Governor 
has no power to draw money for that purpose in advance. If there 
are any rifles belonging to the Commonwealth, in either tlie First or 
Second brigades, in the hands of men not ordered into service, you 
are hereby authorized to take such rifles, and put them into the 
hands of those who are ordered to march. If Mr. Fruit, the inspec- 
tor of the the Second brigade, is not in a situation to conduct the 
detachment called for from his brigade, to the place of rendezvous, 
(as, from some intimation to the Governor, such a circumstance is 
not altogether improbable,) you are required to perform the duty 
asssigned to him. It is recommended that you procure rifles if pos- 



574 WAR OF 1812-14. 

sible, upon loan from individuals. It is confidently believed that 
patriotism will prompt to a ready compliance with such request in 
the i>resent exigency. 

Tlie Legislature will unquestionably make provision, that in case 
such ritles are lost or injured, the owner will be fully indemnified. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N.B. BOILEAU. 



REPRESENTATION OF THE FRONTIER SETTLERS OF 
THE NORTHERN COUNTIES, SEPTEMBER, 1812. 



His Excellency the Governor of the State of Pennsylvania : 

Your petitioners, inhabitants of the county of Tioga and its vi- 
cinity, viewing with anxious solicitude the alarming situation in 
which the sound of war has placed them, beg leave to suggest to 
your Excellency the propriety of taking some effective measures to 
guard against and repel the inroads and depredations of our com- 
mon enemy on the unprotected inhabitants of the counties of Tioga, 
Potter, and McKean. We have no longer any confidence in such a 
part of our red brethren as have lately left their homes to join our 
enemy, (as we suppose,) and fear many acts of cruelty and barbarity 
may be perpetrated by those above described, and others who may 
lead them on. The country west of this, to Lake Erie, is thinly in- 
habited, which will be favorable to any desperate fellows to hold in- 
tercourse witii those among us, and execute their black designs, and 
escape with impunity. We, therefore, pray your Excellency to take 
our unprotected situation into consideration, and cause such a part 
of the militia as have lately been drafted from Colonel Satterlees' 
and Colonel Killburn's regiments, to be stationed in the most con- 
venient situation in Potter or McKean, for the protection of our 
defenceless frontiers. We hope your Excellency will not consider 
us as presuming or officious by renewing our solicitations that our 
destitute situation may be immediately taken into consideration. 
And we, your petitioners, in duty bound, will ever pray.

N. B. BOILEAU TO CAPT. H. SHIPPEN. 



Harrisburg, September 1, 1812. 
Sir : Y'our letter of yesterday I received by the mail of this morn- 
ing. It was with much regret the Governor discovered, after his 
general orders were issued, that your name was omitted. Be assured 
it was entirely unintentional. I presume it happened in this way : 
The tenders of service that I received in his absence I sent on to 
Selin's Grove. He was there when the requisition made by the 
President came to this office. I immediately forwarded, by express, 
the letters of Eustis and Dearborn to him. He immediately left 
Selin's Grove for this place, and, probably, in consequence of hurry, 
he left your letter there, as he cannot find it here among his papers. 
At the same time I sent an express to the Governor, I also sent 
one to General Reed. The express found him at Gettysburg attend- 
ing court. Unfortunately, he also came to the seat of Government 
without having the tender of service from you, made through Mr. 
Light, the brigade inspector, or he had not received it. Of this I am 
not informed. When the Governor drew up the General Orders, he 
left a blank for the names of the commanding officers of the com- 
panies which had tendered their services, and directed the Adjutant 



576 WAR OF 1812-14. 

General to fill the blank, at the same time furnished him with all 
the tenders of service that had been made to him personally that he 
could here lay his hands on ; and thus it happened, as I before men- 
tioned, that lie did not discover the omission until it was too late- 
1 expect he will have occasion to issue General Orders again in a 
few days to the brigade inspectors, in which he will notice all omis- 
sions that have undesignedly occurred in the former orders. I hope 
the foregoing explanation will be satisfactory, and request that you 
will connnunicate it to the officers and men composing the Lancas- 
ter Yagers. 

Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
■Secretary. 
P. S. Since writing the above, I And, on examining the returns 
of milithi officers, that tlie tender of service was made by Mr. 
Light to the Governor in the same return which reported the names 
of the officers elect of your company, the return being filed in this 
office. The Governor never saw it until this day. I had concluded 
that you had written to the Governor, and that I had forwarded 
your letter to him. It, however, appears otherwise. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO CHARLES LAMBAERT. 



Harrisburg, September 3, 1812. 

Sir : Your letter of the 24th ult. to Mr. Trimble, relative to mus- 
kets for the Easton Light Infantry company, is now before me. In 
answer to which I have to state that it appears from the represent- 
ation of Mr. Seeger that the muskets at Nazareth are not in com- 
plete repair; but I expect the only repair tiie most of them want, is 
merely to rub off the rust, and oil them. This can be done by each 
individual, in whose hands the musket is placed, with very little 
trouble and expense. This has been done by several volunteer com- 
panies who have received muskets from the State in the same way. 
If, therefore, you think proper to make a selection of those that 
want the least repair, under the direction of Mr. Seger, and will 
forward your bond, an order will be immediately issued for the de- 
livery of the muskets you have selected. 

Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU.

N. B. BOILEAU TO RICHARD PARKER. 



Habrisburg, September 2, 1812. 
Richard Parker, Esq. : 

Sir : Mr. McClellaa ha^ just informed the Governor that, agree- 
ably to your contract, j'ou will supply tlie volunteers from this State, 
ordered to rendezvous at Meadvilleon the 25th instant, with rations 
on their march to that place. I have, therefore, deemed it expedient 
to furnish you the inclosed list of officers and men ordered on that 
service, residing east of the Allegheny, and within the bounds of 
your contract. You are also furnished with the names of tlie sev- 
eral brigade inspectors from whose brigades the detachments are to 
be formed. Could you intimate to them that you would furnish the 
necessary rations, it would exempt them from the trouble of making 
other arrangements for that, purpose. 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



GOV. SIMOK SNYDER TO MR. DUNCAN. 



Harrisburg, September 2, 1812. 
Mr. Duncan, Deputy Superintendent of Military Stores : 

Sir : Mr. McClellan, the Inspector of the Second brigade, Seventh 
division, whose dutyit is to march with a detachment of volunteers 
from his brigade to Meadville, has said that you have offered to fur- 
nish, from Carlisle, the tents and other camp equipage for the de- 
tachment. From the enclosed copy of a letter from Cadwallader 
Irvine, you will perceive that arrangements have been made to fur- 
nish tents and other camp equipage from the deposit at Pittsburg. 
At the same time it is apparent that it would be more for the con- 
venience and accommodation of the troops on this side the Alle- 
gheny, to be furnished with these articles from Carlisle. If, there- 
fore, you think it consistent with your duty to supply them, I request 
that you would do it, and at the same time give early intimation of 
your doing so to the Superintendent of Military Stores at Pittsburg. 

I am, &c., 

SIMON SNYDER.

K. B. BOILEAU TO WILLIAM MOOEE. 



IIarrisburg, September 3, 1812. 
Sri? : Yours of the 29th ult. 1 received yesterday. Two copies of 
the geiienil orders were forwarded to you, one by express and another 
by mail. We have not a spare copy, or I would forward it. As you 
have already given notice to the commanding officers of the com- 
panies tliat are to march, the time and place of rendezvous, which 
is at Meadville, the 25th inst., it will be sufficient, I presume, to 
give you an extract from the ordei's, which points out your further 
duty : " Tiiese officers, brigade inspectors, are to march, each with 
his proper detachment, to the place of rendezvous ; are required and 
directed, severally, to provide subsistence and other necessary ac- 
commodations for the troops on their march, and exhibit detailed 
account for settlement and payment to the accoi;nting officer of the 
Commonwealth." Should there be any deficiency of arms in any of 
the volunteer companies, you will supply them with any that may 
be in the bounds in your brigade ; every man must supi)ly himself 
with a blanket, and knapsack. Tents and other camp equipage will 
be furnislied at Meadville. General Dearborn, in his letter to the 
Governor, states that no horsemen are wanted, the Governor, there- 
fore, has ordered none to march. You will, therefore, inform the 
trooi) accordingly. We cannot find on our files any return of Wil- 
liam Jackson being returned as an officer elect. If the company 
you state to be commanded by William Jackson is one of the march- 
ing companies, commissions will be handed out by General Reed at 
Meadville; he took blanks with him. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO JAMES LAMBERTON. 



Harrisburg, September 4, 1812. 
James Lamberton, Esq., Inspector First Brigade, Seventh Divis- 
ion, Pennsylvania Militia : 
Sir: The obvious necessity for field artillery on the western 
frontier of this State, impels me to direct you immediately to have 
put in traveling condition the brass field piece, the property of the 
State, remaining at Shippensburg, and send it to Erie by some 
trusty iierson. Your account for repairs and for transportation will 
be paid on production of proper vouchers at this place.

JOHN GOODMAN. 



Harrisburg, Sevtemher 4, 1812. 
The exposed state of the western country, and my knowledge of 
the want of ordinance there, impels me to direct you immediately 
to have fitted up for transportation four of the field-pieces, at present 
in the arsenal at Philadelphia, the property of the State, and that 
you contract for tlieir transportation to Erie, in the county of Erie, 
or to this place. It is of importance that such be selected as are 
fit for service. Your account for repairs will be paid at this on the 
production of proper vouchers.

GENERAL ORDERS. 



Harrisburg, September 5, 1812. 
To N. B, BoiLEAU, Aid-de-Camp: 

The recent disastrous events on the north-western frontiers of 
the United States, presenting immiuent danger, impels the Execu- 
tive of Pennsylvania under the requisition of the constituted author- 
ities of the United States, to order out for the service of the Union, 
a detachment of 2000 men to be composed of the drafted militia, 
and of flank companies and horse of the Twelfth, Thirteenth, Four- 
teenth, Fifteenth, and Sixteenth divisions, each division to furnish 
a number, which added to the volunteers already in service under 
general orders of the 25th ult., will be equal to its quota, as desig- 
nated by the Adjutant General orders of the 12th May last. 

No return of drafts having been received by the Executive from 
the Second brigade of the Thirteenth division, the brigade inspec- 
tor thereof is directed to give immediate notice to three flank com- 
panies of horse attached to his brigade to march, and he is directed 
to march them to the place of rendezvous hereinafter mentioned. 

The Brigade Inspector of the First brigade of the Thirteenth di- 
vision is commanded to march the drafts from his brigade to the 
place of rendezvous. 

The Brigade Inspectors of the other divisions being now on their 
march with their respective detachments under general orders of 
the 25th ult., the brigadier generals of the other divisions will ap, 
point the senior oflicer of each regimental draft to give notice to the 



580 



WAR OF 1812-14. 



drafts, officers, and privates within the bounds of their respective 
regiments, to meet at some convenient place within the brigade, and 
after liaving mustered the respective detachments, the said brigade 
inspectors, as aforesaid, and the said senior officers shall march their 
respective detacliments to Pittsburgli, with the requisite dispatch, 
so tiiat they arrive at the said place of rendezvous on the 2d day of 
October next. On tl)e next day thereafter, or as soon as a majority 
of the detachment sliall have arrived, the officers and privates shal^ 
elect one Brigadier General to command the detachment, which is to 
constitute a brigade, and is to consist of and be formed into four 
regiments, and each regiment to consist of two battalions. Each 
regiment to elect one colonel commandant, and each battalion one 
major. 

Volunteers will be accepted in substitution of any draft or drafts. 
Subsistence and accommodations for the troops on their march to 
the place of rendezvous, it is presumed, will be furnished by the 
United States contractors. If no provision shall have been made 
by those contractors, the men will either supply themselves, or the 
several commandants on the march to the rendezvous will do it, and 
render their accounts, as directed by general orders of the 25th ult. 

The Brigadiers General, for ascertaining their respective drafts, 
are referred to a note accompanying this, containing so much as is 
necessary of the Adjutant General's detail, founded on returns to 
hiuj from the respective brigade inspectors. 

Tlie Adjutant General will attend at the place of rendezvous and 
take the command of the detachment, until the officers are chosen. 
To them respectively, tliat officer will deliver commissions; and will 
pay any expenses incident to the service that may not be provided 
for by the United States. At the place of rendezvous the detach- 
ment will be furnislied with tents and other field equipage. Should 
there be any deficiency of arms, the said Brigade Inspectors and 
Brigadiers General will supply the respective detachments with any 
to be found within tlie bounds of their respective brigades. If there 
cannot be found a sufficient number, they will be furnished at the 
place of rendezvous. Every man will supply himself with a blanket 
and knapsack. 

Tlie Brigadier General having assumed the command, will, with 
the least possible delay, march his detachment to, and join, an army 
now assembling in the State of Ohio for defense of the western fron- 
tiers, unless otherwise ordered by the Commander-in-Chief of the 
United States army. 

The Govenu^r embraces the present opportunity of recording the 
names of commanding officers of companies who have patriotically 
tendered tlieir services, not included in General Orders of the 25th 
ultimo.

EXTRACT FROM THE AD.JUTANT GENERAL'S RETURN. 



N. B. BoiLEATJ, Aid-de-Camp : 

From the First brigade, Eleventh division, three hundred and 
forty-six drafts, including officers out of that number, one hundred 
and one volunteers have already marched. It will be understood, 
and it is so directed, that if the proper brigade inspector can attend 
to the execution of the duties above enjoined on the Brigadier Gen- 
eral, and the senior officers of regimental detachments, these gen- 
eral orders are, in that case, considered as being directed to tlie Bri- 
gade Inspector of your brigade. As soon as you have fixed the place 
of assembling the detachment in the bounds of the brigade from 
whence they are to march to Pittsburgli. and their number you will 
please to communicate the same to one of the contractors. Ebene- 
zer Denny, at Pittsburgh, is for the west, Richard Parker, at Car- 
lisle, for the east side of the Allegheny mountain.

N. B. BOILEAU TO WILLIAM LINNARD. 



Hareisburg, September 5, 1812. 
WiLLiAJi LiNNARD, Deputy Quarter -Master General: 

Sir : In consequence of a requisition made by the Executive of 
the L'nited States, by a letter from the Secretary of AVar, of Sei)tem- 
ber 1, 1812, the Governor has issued general orders for another de- 
tachment of two thousand men, to march and rendezvous at Pitts- 
burgh, on the 2d day of October next. It becomes necessary again 
to apply for camp equipage from the United States. ^ I have, there- 
fore, to request that you will consult with Gen. Duncan, who, I un- 
derstand, is appointed Superintendent of Military Stores, and make 
arrangements to have the necessary articles at the place of rendez- 
vous, by the time appointed for assembling the troops. 
Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

X. B. BOILEAU. 

P. S.— The classes ordered to march in the above detachment 
amount to 2,273. The Governor has ordered about 800 muskets to 
Pittsburgh, to supply the detachment; but it is feared that there 
will be still a deficiency, as well as for cartridge boxes. Could not 
arrangements be made to meet such deficiency r* A contract has 
been made for 2,000 cartridge boxes, which will be ready in about 
two weeks. These might be appropriated to re-place any loan from 
the United States. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO RICHARD PARKER. 



Harrisburg, September 5, 1812. 
Richard Parker, Esq., Contractor for the Eastern District, Car- 
lisle : 
Sir :' Under requisition of the President of the United States, the 
Governor of this Commonwealth has issued general orders for 
marching a detachment of 2,000 militia, in addition to those or- 
dered into service by general orders of August 25th. The detach- 
ment is composed of drafts from the militia of Westmoreland, Fay- 
ette, Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Mercer, Crawford, Venango, War- 
ren, Erie, Armstrong, Indiana, Washington, Greene, Somerset, 
Bedford, and Cambria. You are requested to make arrangements 
for furnishing rations for the troops on their march from the east- 



WAR OF 1812-14. 583 

ern side of the Allegheny Mountain to the place of rendezvous, 
which will be at Pittsburgh, on the 2d day of October next. 
Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 

P. S. — The classes ordered to march in the above detachment 
amount to 2,273. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO EBENEZER DENNY 



Habrisburg, September 5, 1812. 
Ebenezer Denny, Esq., Contractor, Pittsburgh: 

Sir : The President of the United States having required an ad- 
ditional detachment of 2,000 men from the State of Pennsylvania 
to those already ordered into service, the Governorhas issued gen- 
orders this day, in compliance with the said requisition. 

The detachment will be composed of the militia from the coun- 
ties of Washington, Greene, Somerset, Bedford, Westmoreland, 
Fayette, Allegheny, Armstrong, Indiana, and Cambria. You are 
requested to make arrangements for supplying the troops with ra- 
tions, on their march from the counties west of the Alleglieny to 
the place of rendezvous, which will be at Pittsburgh, on the 2d day 
of October next. You will be informed by the proper officers of 
the time and place from whence the detachment will commence 
their march to the place of rendezvous. 
Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant,

N B. BOIULEAU TO WILLIAM REED, ADJUTANT 

GENERAL. 



Harrisburg, September 5, 1812. 
William Reed, Esq., Adjutant General: 

Sm : From the general orders herewith enclosed, you will per- 
ceive that the Governor has been under the necessity of imposing 
additional duties upon you. Commissions have been forwarded for 
you, to the care of Mr. Pentland, at Pittsburgh. As soon as you 
have organized the detachment at Meadville, you will repair, with 
all possible dispatch, to Pittsburgh. From the letter of the Secre- 
tary of War, dated September 1st, of which the following is an ex- 
tract: " I have to request your Excellency to hasten the march of 
the 2,000 troops required through General Dearborn ; you will please 
to comuninicate with him, and adopt such measures as he may re- 
commend," it would appear that the detachment at Meadville is 
to be under the direction of General Dearborn. The detachment 
at Meadville will, therefore, proceed on to the point designated in 
the general orders of the 25th August last, unless ordered differ- 
ently by General Dearborn, to whom the Governor has written on 
the subject. (Permit me to mention to you the propriety of making 
a similar suggestion to the officers at Pittsburgh, relative to the gen- 
eral election, to that which it was thought expedient to the officers 
at Meadville.) 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



GOV. SNYDER TO HON. WILLIAM EUSTIS. 



Harrisburg, September 5, 1812. 
Hon. William Eustis, Esq., Secretary at War, Washington city : 
Sir : In obedience to the President's requisition, communicated 
by your letter to me of the 1st inst., I have ordered into the service 
of the United States a detachment of Pennsylvania militia, consist- 
ing of two thousand men, as you will perceive by a copy of general 
orders enclosed. To make up possible deficiencies about two hun- 
dred and seventy over the number required are ordered to march, 
which I trust will have the President's approbation. From recent 
information communicated to me by gentlemen styling themselves 



r 

WAR OF 1812-14. 585 

a committee of safety at Pittsburgh, it would appear that except 
muskets, flints, and lead, there is a total deficiency in the United 
States arsenal of powder and other military stores. 
Very respectfully. 

Your obedient servant, 

SIMON SNYDER. 



GOV. SNYDER TO BRIGADE INSPECTORS. 



Harrisbtjrg, 5th September, 1812. 

Instructions for Henry Antes and George Cochran expresses dis- 
patched 5th September, 1812, with orders to several Brigade Inspec- 
tors and Brigadiers General of the divisions from which troops are 
to be detached for service of the United States, under general orders 
of this day. 

In every instance where the Brigade Inspector of any brigade here- 
tofore ordered to march to Meadville, has not marched, such Brigade 
Inspector is to put the marching detachment imder the command 
of the senior officer thereof, and shall execute the duties of his office, 
under general orders of this day ; and so soon as the detachment 
of his brigade is ready to depart, shall march it to Pittsburgh, and 
the Brigadier General is in that case relieved from the duty imposed 
on him. 

SIMON SNYDER. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO WILLIAM CLARK. 



Harrisburg, September 9, 1812. 

To William Clark, Esquire, Inspector First brigade, Sixteenth 

divisioyi : 
Sir : I am instructed by the Governor to request you to have all 
the public arms in your possession transported to this place as early 
as practicable. The expense incurred will be settled at this place 
to transport the arms from Lancaster to this place, which is thirty- 
six miles, for twenty-four dollars the trip. It is expected that teams 
in your neighborhood can be obtained as cheap as here ; if not so, 
you will endeavor to accomplish the business at as little expense as 
possible. A volunteer company at Easton were offered arms from 
the deposit at Nazareth upon certain conditions. If the company 



586

calls for the arms before they are removed you will please to deliver 

them. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO SAMUEL COCHRAN, BRIGADE IN- 
SPECTOR, PITTSBURGH. 



Harrisburg September 10, 1812. 

Sir : The Governor has directed seven hundred and twenty stands 
of arms to be forwarded to Pittsburgh, for the purpose of supplying 
such of the militia called into service by general orders of the 5th 
instant, as may not be already furnished. The arms are contained 
in twenty-five boxes; twenty of which contain thirty stands, and 
five twentj'-four stands each. The locks and screws are folded iu 
paper, and numbered corresponding with the numbers marked on 
the gun stocks near the screw plate. You will please to give the 
wagoners a receipt for the boxes when delivered, and have them 
safely deposited until the troops arrive. You will then furnish such 
of the men with muskets as have none, taking a receipt for them 
from the commanding officer of the company to which they are de- 
livered. 

Very respectfully, &c., 

N.B. BOILEAU. 

N. B. Four boxes containing twenty-four stands each were left, 
for want of room, in the wagons. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO GEN. HENRY DEARBORN. 



Harrisburg, Septeniber 11, 1812. 
Sir : Yours of the 2d instant has been duly received by the Gov- 
ernor. I have the honor to inform you that yours of the 13th ult., 
was also received by him at Selins Grove the 21st ; he immediately 
repaired to the seat of government at this place, and on the 25th is- 
sued general orders for twenty-four hundred volunteers to rendez- 
vous at Meadville on the 25th of the present month, and from thence 
to march with all possible dispatch to Buffalo. On the 26th ult. a 



WAR OF 1812-14. 587 

letter inclosing general orders was directed to you at Greenbush, 
and put in tlie mail at this place. On the 5th instant the Governor 
issued general orders, agreeably to the request of the Secretary at 
War, for two thousand two hundred more of the militia of this 
State to rendezvous at Pittsburgh on the 2d of October, and from 
thence to join, without delay, the troops assembling in the State of 
Ohio. A letter, also, inclosing the last mentioned orders was put 
in the mail at this place, directed to you at Greenbush. That the 
Governor's letter of the 26th ult. has not reached you, is matter of 
surprise and regret. The detachment assembling at Meadville will 
proceed on to Buffalo, unless otherwise directed by you. You will, 
therefore forward to the commanding oflficer of that detachment, 
such orders as you may deem expedient. It will be commanded by 
a Brigadier General, but, as he was to be elected by the volunteers 
composing the detachment, I cannot yet give you his name. 

The Adjutant General, William Reed, Esq., will attend, and is 
gone to Meadville to take the command until the detachment is or- 
ganized. Any instructions inclosed to him will be punctually at- 
tended to. You will, therefore, please to communicate with him 
as early as possible. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant,

Hakrisburg, Septemher 11, 1812. 

Sir : A volunteer company of riflemen of Bedford county has 
offered their services to the Governor, upon condition that they are 
furnished with tents and other camp equipage at Bedford. I have, 
therefore, by direction of the Governor, to request you to supply the 
company with those articles, if you can consistently with your duty. 
The company consists of one hundred and twenty, including oflicers. 
The general rendezvous is to be at Pittsburgh on the 2d of October 
next. Mr. David Metzler, one of the officers of the company, will 
hand you this and receive your answer. 

Yery respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 

P. S. If you think proper to comply with the above request, you 
will please to inform Gen. Duncan, of Philadelphia, Superintendent 
of Military Stores, of the circumstance.

IlARRiSBURG, llt/t September, 1812. 

Sir: There are remaining here five boxes, wlierein are packed 
one liundred and twenty muskets yet to be forwarded to the western 
country. These and the cannon wheels, &c., at Shippensburg, would 
make a liglit load for a four-horse team to Pittsburgh or to Erie. 
Please to inform me at wliat price you can hire a team at Carlisle 
to go to any of the two places, first to come to this place for the 
muskets. I wait your answer. The waggons sent from here have 
for the trip to Pittsburgh one hundred and seventy-five dollars. 
Sincerely, your friend and servant,

N. B. BOILEAU TO SAMUEL COCHRAN. 



Harrisburg, September 11, 1812. 

To Sa:muel Cochran, Esquire, Inspector First brigade, Fifteenth 
division, Pennsylvania Militia: 
Sir : Yesterday morning three wagon load of muskets left this 
place for Pittsburgh, directed to your care. They were contained in 
twenty-five boxes, twenty of which had in them thirty stand, the 
other five, twenty-four stand each. The locks are put up in paper, 
and numbered, corresponding with numbers marked on the gun 
stocks, near the screw-plate. You will please to give the wagoners 
a receipt for them when delivered. Deposit them safely until the 
troops assemble, which will be on the 2d of October. You will then 
distribute them to such companies as are not supplied, taking a re. 
ceipt from the commanding oflicer of such company. The arms 
were inspected here by a gunsmith, who selected them, and states 
that they want nothing but cleaning from rust and oiling, to make 
them fit for service. Time would not permit of having it done here ; 
but each man will be able, in a very short time, to clean and oil his 
own musket. The number sent is seven hundred and twenty. About 
one hundred and eighty more will be forwarded, if possible, so as to 
be at Pittsburgli by the 2d of October. Such of them as want repair- 
ing are now in the hands of a gunsmith for that purpose. It is also 
intended to forward, at the same time, about two thousand car- 
tridge-boxes, to be delivered and receipted for as directed with re- 
gard to the muskets. 

Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant,

Harrisburg, September 11, 1812. 
Gen. John Noble : 

Sir : I have much gratification, on the receipt of your favor of the 
7th Inst., just handed to me by Mr. David Metzler, and take much 
pleasure by saying the promptitude with which you have executed 
general orders of the 5th inst., does you much honor. I accept with 
great satisfaction the tender of service of the volunteer rifle com- 
pany which, in the hour of peril and danger, have patriotically 
stepped forward to serve their country in substitution of the re- 
mainder of the draft required of the Fifty-fifth regiment, part of 
the detachment ordered to rendezvous at Pittsburgh , on the 2d of 
October next. In compliance with the company's conditions No. 1, 
commissions are forwarded ; on the second, can only say the State 
owns not a single tent. These camp kettles and other camp equip- 
ments will be furnished at Pittsbui-gh, by the United States Deputy 
Superintendent of Military Stores, or may be furnished at Carlisle, 
as has been done in case of volunteers marched from Franklin 
county, if Mr. Metzler will make the application founded 021 my 
requisition to the deputy there. The third condition, must be re- 
ferredto those patriotic feelings inherent in the bosom of every true 

American. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant,

N. B. BOILEAU TO GENERAL WILLIAM DUANE. 



Philadelphia, Septemher 14, 1812. 

To Gen. William Duane, Superintendent of Militaru Stores: 

Sir : About the 5th inst. I wrote to Mr. Linnard informing him 
that the Governor, in compliance with the request of the Secretary 
at War, had issued general orders for 2,000 militia, to rendezvous at 
Pittsburgh on the 2d of October, and requested that Mr. Linnard 
would make arrangements to furnish them with tents and other 
camp equipage. I also wished him to consult with you on the sub- 
ject of supplying the men with cartridge boxes out of the stores at 
Pittsburgh, if they should need them, upon loan, or otherwise. The 
Governor has contracted for two thousand at Harrisburg, and they 
are in considerable forwardness, and will be;forwarded to Pittsburgh , 
if possible, by the 2d of October. But I fear they will not reach

WAR OF 1812-14. 



that place quite so early. I would also wish to be informed whether 
or not tents and other camp equipage could not be supplied from 
Carlisle for such of tlie militia as may, from time to time, be called 
from the east side of the mountain. Mr. Duncan, of Carlisle, feels 
disposed to accommodate in that way, if he could be authorized to 
do so. I am sorry to add that Lieut. Johnson, of Pittsburgh, does 
not discover such an accommodating disposition. As I received no 
answer to my letter sent to Mr. Linnard, I fear that it has not 
reached him, please to mention the subject to him. In consequence 
of sickness in my family, I was sent for, and am now on my way 
home. I shall probably be absent from the seat of government for 
some short time. I wish that you and Mr. Linnard would write 
to the Governor at Ilarrisburg on the subjects above mentioned. 
Should you authorize a loan of muskets and cartridge-boxes, they 
would be returned or re-placed in a very short time. Seven hundred 
and twenty stands have been sent on to Pittsburgh. One hundred 
and eighty more will be forwarded in a few days. One thousand 
have been ordered from Nazareth to Harrisburg, a part, on the 
whole of which will be forwarded to that place, should it be neces- 
sary. 

I am, very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU.

Harrisburg, loth SexMrnher^ 1812. 
William Eustis, Esq., Secretary of War : 

Sir : The original communication, of which the accompanying is 
a copy, signed by gentlemen of the first respectability at Erie, was 
transmitted to me by Brigadier General John Kelso of that place. 
A copy of (jeneral Kelso's letter I take the liberty also to forward. 
Placing on their statement the fullest reliance, I hasten to transmit 
it to you, to be laid before the President of the United States. To 
their request, I beg leave to add my wish that some eificient meas- 
ures for tlie protection of that frontier may speedily be taken. I 
ask this because the very imperfect militia system of this State pre- 
sents so many obstacles to the adoption by the executive of efficient 
measures, that, unless the General Government comes in aid of our 
feeble efforts, that country, if an irruption by the enemy be made, 
will fall a sacrifice to savage ferocity. Permit me to solicit the 
earliest possible information of the President's determination on 
this interesting subject, and permit also to assure you of my perfect 
consideration, &c.

WILLIAM DUNCAN TO GOV. SNYDER. 



United States Arsenal, Septemher 15, 1812. 

His Excellency Simon Snyder, Governor of the Commonwealth of 

Pennsylvania : 

Sir : I this moment received a letter from the Secretary of the 
Commonwealth, relative to the late requisition, marie through Mr. 
Linnard on this department, for tents and other articles of camp 
equipage, and do myself the honor of returning an answer with that 
promptitude which the occasion and my high respect for your ex- 
cellency demand. Permit me to premise that if the requisition had 
been made on me, which was inadvertantly made on the deputy 
quarter-master, I should have returned an immediate answer ; but 
presuming that Mr. Linnard had done so, I did not deem it neces- 
sary. I received a letter from him on the subject, dated the 9th in- 
stant, in which he expressed doubts whether the requisition could 
be complied with without the approbation of the Secretary of War, 
and suggested the propriety of his writing to him on the subject. To 
which I immediately wrote an answer, assuring him that I should, 
in anticipation of the answer of the Secretary of War, order camp 
kettles and such camp equipage as were forwarded from this place 
on the former requisition, to be packed without delay, and prepared 
for transportation, so that the operations of the militia might not 
be retarded by pursuing this course. The muskets are also in read- 
iness, waiting the secretary's answer, which is daily expected. 

There are not a sufiicient number of cartridge-boxes in store to 
complete existing orders, which are of a very urgent nature. I, 
therefore, sincerely hope that those contracted for in Harrisburg 
maybe furnished in time to meet our citizen soldiers in Pittsburgh, 
on the 2d of October next. 

The anxious solicitude I feel to promote the patriotic views of 
your Excellency and the militia of Pennsylvania, together with the 
service of the United States in general, will, I trust, always secure 
to the officers with whom I have the honor to act, a prompt cooper- 
ation in every measure calculated to advance the honor and interest 
of our beloved country. 

With sentiments of the highest esteem and regard, 
I have the honor to be 

Your Excellency's obedient, very humble servant, 

WILLIAM DUNCAN, 
Superintendent Military Stores,

IIakrisburg, IGth September, 1812. 
Postscript to my letter of yesterday. 
William Eustis, Esq., Secretary at War : 

Siif : To make up possible deficiencies, I ordered to rendezvous at 
Me;ulville,;i,ol(> volunteers, at Pittsburgh 2,214, drafted militia. 

The promptitude with which the orders were obeyed induces the 
belief that the whole, or nearly the wliole number ordered will ren- 
dezvous at both places. Permit me, througli you, to suggest to the 
President the propriety of employing the surplus number of both 
detachments in the defence of Erie. If the President should so 
determine, I would further suggest that from the volunteer and 
drafted men of the Sixteenth division of Pennsylvania militia, 
composed of the counties of Erie, Crawford, Warren, Mercer, Ve- 
nango, Beaver, and Butler, might be detached the said surplus for 
the defence of that important post. For reasons, I beg leave to refer 
to the representation made by Judge Moore and others, a copy 
whereof was forwarded to you under date of yesterday. William 
Reed, Adjutant General, who commands both detachments until 
organized for their march, will promptly obey any directions given 
by the President. Permit me again to ask an early answer, and to 
assure you of my perfect consideration and esteem.

JAMES TRIMBLE TO SAMUEL THOMAS. 



Harrisburg, September 16, 1812. 
To Samuel Thomas, Esq., Captain of a Company of Artillery, 
attached to the Thirty-fifth regiment, Second brigade, and Ninth 
division of Militia : 

Sir : In answer to your letter to the Governor of the 11th instant, 
I am directed by him to inform you that your company may be sup- 
plied with a competent number of muskets, the property of the 
State, upon the same terms that others have been furnished with 
them, to wit : By executing a bond conditioned for their re-delivery 
in as good order and repair as when received by the company, when- 
ever a demand of them shall be made by the proper authority. I 
inclose a blank bond, which you, with the Lieutenant and Ensign, 
may execute if you think proper, and upon the same being trans-

mitted to this office, and receiving the approbation of the Governor, 
he will issue an order for the delivery of such number as may be 
necessary for your company out of the public store, and directions 
will be then given where to apply for them. I will thank you to in- 
form me what number of men your company consists of. 
I am, sir, with much respect,

GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO Dr. GEORGE DAWSON 



Harrisburg, 16th September, 1812. 
To Dr. George Dawson, Pittsburgh: 

Sir : Under my orders of the 4th instant, James Laraberton, Es- 
quire, Brigade Inspector, residing at Carlisle, has forwarded to your 
care a brass field piece, the property of the State, as I stand informed 
by that officer. The gun is intended for the use of the military 
force now on duty at Erie, for the defence of that frontier. You 
will, therefore, deliver the gun to the order of Major William Clark, 
who will pay any reasonable expenses that may have been incurred 
by its delivery to you. 

Very respectfully. 

Your obedient servant, 

SIMON SNYDER. 



GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO GEN. JOHN KELSO. 



Harrisburg, September 16, 1812. 
To Gen. John Kelso : 

Sir : To make up possible deficiencies, I ordered under the requi- 
sition of Gen. Dearborn, to rendezvous at Meadville. 2,516 volun- 
teers, and at Pittsburgh, under reqisition of the President, 2214. 
The promptitude with which the orders are obeyed, leads me to an- 
ticipate the rendezvousing at both places, of the largest number. 

I have, under date of this day, suggested to the President, through 

the Secretary at War, the propriety of employing in the defence of 

Erie, this surplus force, and that the volunteers and dr-xfts from 

the Sixteenth division, because consisting of men living at, and 

38— Vol. XII. 



504 WAR OF 1812-14. 

contiguous to Erie, might be detached for that service. The result 
of this application I will communicate to you. 

I liave to lament that your letter, though dated the 5th inst., and 
the communication from Judge Moore, and others of the same date, 
was so long delayed as to protract its delivery to yesterday. Copies 
of both I have transmited to the President of the United .States. 

Please write me again, and if by you deemed necessary, and I 
fail in my application to the President, I will order a draft from 
without the bounds of the Sixteenth division, say from Westmore- 
land and adjoining counties. I am happy to have it in my power 
to say you wish to have artillery is anticipated. One brass field 
piece is now on the road to Pittsburgh, directed to the care of 
Dr. (ieorge Dawson. For its delivery to Maj. Clark I have given 
an order, who will have it transported to Erie. Grape shot and ball 
can be procured at Pittsburgh, as we are informed by Maj. Clark. 
Four more 4-pounders I had brought from Philadelphia to this place, 
and will be sent to Erie as soon as teams can be provided. 

On the morning of the 7th inst., the day on which the bond for 
$4,0(H), signed by yourself and Col. Philips, as surety for Maj. Clark 
came to hand. A commission of quarter-master general for Wilson 
Smith had been made out, and measures were preparing to have 
placed to his credit at the Branch Bank of Pittsburgh $10,000, sub- 
ject to his draft, for provisions and munition of war, «&c., already 
purchased by Maj. Clark, and such as might be purchased by him. 
The duties imposed by my order, and other multifarious duties in- 
cumbent on Maj. Clark, in consequence of several offices lie holds, 
are too burdensome for any one individual to perform. These con- 
siderations induce the appointment of a quarter-master. To him 
most properly, if to any officer in my appointment, it belongs to pro- 
vide the detachment now performing duty at Erie. 

The commission for Wilson Smith will soon be forwarded, and 
money placed to his credit. In the interim, the $4,000 placed to the 
credit of Maj. Clark, at the Branch Bank of Pittsburgh, will be 
equal to the payment of his purchases ; the balance, if any, will be 
discharged by Wilson Smith. 

Sincerely your friend, &c., 

SIMON SNYDER.

GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO WILSON SMITH. 



Harrisburg, September 18, 1812. 
WiLsox Smith, Esq., Quarter-master > General of the Militia of 

Pennsylvania : 

Sir : Circumstances arising? out of the measures taken to defend 
the frontiers of this State, make it desirous that your services might 
avail tlie public in the capacity of quarter-master general of the 
militia of Pennsylvania, which appointment, from my knowledge 
of your republican integrity, I confer on you. With the commis- 
sion herewith transmitted, the public interest requires that you act 
also ill the capacity of comuiissary for furnishing supplies of pro- 
visions, camp equipage, and munitions of war, for the militia now 
in service, and that may hereafter be ordered on service there or 
elsewhere, the northwestern frontiers of this State under the orders 
of the executive. For defraying the expenses incident to this ser- 
vice, there will be placed to your credit, on the books of the Branch 
Bank of Pittsburgh, six thousand dollars. For further directions 
in the execution of the trust reposed in you, I refer to a letter to 
you from the Auditor General. The money will be transmitted in 
checks drawn by the State Treasurer on the Bank of Pennsylvania, 
payable to your order, which shall be forwarded to the cashier of 
the Branch Bank at Pittsburgh, where they will be duly honored; 
but it will be necessary for you to endorse the checks or to author- 
ise the cashier to place the amount to your credit on the books of 
the Branch bank, and you can, thereupon, draw checks on him from 
time to time as the public service may require. Maj. Clark, when 
here, expressed feai'S that your appointment and transfer of duties, 
until now performed by him to you, would very much embarrass 
him, because of large purchases'of provisions made by him in an- 
ticipation of a continuance in the capacity of commissary, and ex- 
pressed a strong desire to have the contract from you for furnish- 
ing rations for the troops in future. On this representation being 
made, I did not hesitate to say, you would conti'act with him for 
the rations if he agreed to furnish them at the price paid by the 
United States to Ebenezer Denny, at Pittsburgh. Our military 
operations being at this time altogether confined to your section of 
the State, has induced your appointment to the office of quarter- 
master general. You will readily perceive that, if the scene of war 
snould be clianged, and a person competent, living near the seat of 
government will accept thereof, the public interest would require 
the appointment of such other person. 

Your liberality, I am persuaded, would, in such case, ascribe the 
act to the proper motive, and dictate the course you ought to pursue. 
Be assured of my sincere regard and esteem.

Commonwealth, fitted with every necessary apparatus for service, 
and intended for the defence of the north-western frontiers. You 
will, at such place as Brig. Gen. John Kelso should designate as the

the time being, and until otherwise ordered by proper authority, 
these guns and another of the same description, forwarded by my 
order, through James Lamberton, Brigade Inspector, residing at 
Carlisle, are confided to his order and direction, whenever they, or 
any of them, may be required for service in defence of the north- 
western frontiers. To each of the carters, who shall deliver his gun, 
and the apparatus appurtenant thereto belonging, in good condition, 
agreeably to a schedule accompanying these orders, you will give a 
receipt, i)urp()rting such delivery, or otherwise, as the state of the 
gun and apparatus in his charge shall warrant. You will take charge,

have had them in Pittsburgh on the 2d of October next, to be de- 
livered to such of the drafted militia as may not have supplied them- 
selves, but am much disappointed. Not more than four or five hun- 
dred will be fnrnished in the early part of this week. These should 
be forwarded as soon as a team can be procured ; if they arrive not 
in time, I hope you may procure the number required out of the 
United States military stores. On notice from you they sliall be 
promptly re-placed. I have directed to be inclosed an extract of a

completed. If any remain after a disposition has been made, as 
above directed, that such remainder shall be subject to the order of 
Wilson Smith, Quarter-master General. If any of the troops shall 
have marclied unsupplied, the Governor directs that a number suf- 
ficient, or the whole of them, if necessary, be immediately sent after 
them, with directions to the carrier to take a receipt for their de- 
livery, the expense of which to be paid by Mr. Smith. Whatever 
may be done in execution of this order you will be pleased immedi- 
ately to communicate to the Quarter-master General, and to the Ex- 
ecutive Department at this place. 

I am, sir, respectfully. 

Your obedient servant, 

JAMES TRIMBLE, 
Deputy Secretary.

GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO GEN. WILLIAM REED. 



Harrisburg, September 26, 1812. 
William Reed, Esq., Adjutant General: 

Sir : Yesterday at noon five hundred cartouch-boxes were com- 
pleted, and this day forwarded, by a two-horse wagon, for Pitts- 
burgh, directed to Samuel Cochran, Brigade Inspector; in his ab- 
sence, to yourself, and in the absence of both, to Ephraim Pentland, 
Esq. Having reason to fear they will not arrive before the detach- 
ments has marched, directions are given in Mr. Trimble's letter as 
to their disposition in case of that event. It is thought (bating ac- 
cidents) the wagon may arrive on the 5th of October, and if the de- 
tachment shall have marched before that day, and any of the men 
are destitute of that necessary article, I flatter myself dispatch will 
be used, that they may be supplied at some place considerably short 
of their destination. 

In much haste, 

I am yours respectfully, 

SIMON SNYDER. 



JAMES TRIMBLE TO IRA KILBURN. 



Harrisburg, September 28, 1812. 

To Ira Kilburx, Esq., and others, inhaUtants of the counties of 
Tioga and its vicinity, Wellsboro'' : 
Sir : In answer to the request of yourself and others, that the 
Governor would order on service, for the defence of Potter and 
McKean counties, the drafts heretofore made from Colonels Kill- 
burn's and Satterly's regiments, he has instructed me to inform you 
that those drafts are subject to the requisition of the United States 
Government, and, therefore, he cannot order them into the service 
of the State, nor can he perceive the danger those counties have to 
apprehend, tlie seat of war being considerably more than one hun- 
dred miles from them, on the frontier of the State of New York. 
The enemy, after defeating our troops there, which he trusts will 
not happen, must penetrate through that State before the just fears 
of the petitioners can be excited. 

I am, sir, respectfully. 

Your obedient servant, 

JAMES TRIMBLE.

JAMES TRIMBLE TO GEORGE ARMSTRONG. 



Harrisburg, September 29, 1812. 

To George Armstrong, Esq., Inspector of the First Brigade, 
Thirteenth Division Pennsylvania Militia : 

Sir : Your return of the 22d inst. came duly to hand, and for the 
officers therein mentioned I transmit commissions, except for John 
Burn, lieutenant of the Third company of the Sixty-third regiment, 
who has heen commissioned some time since for the same office. 

As to Cai)t. ^IcCullougli's company. I can only say that it was 
never returned into this office. You will therefore see the propriety 
of transmiting a return of his election to this department as early 
as possible. 

I wrote to you on the 10th of June last, relative to a company of 
riflemen, conmianded by John Morrow% attached to the Second 
battalion of the Nineteenth regiment, requesting you to certify that 
there are thirty men in complete uniform in his company, which 
has not yet been received. 

The above information is absolutely necessary before commissions 
can be issued for either of the aforesaid companies. Your speedy 
attention to the above will obtain the commissions without delay. 
I am, with great respect. 

Your obedient servant, 

JAMES TRIMBLE. 



JAMES TRIMBLE TO JAMES LAMBERTON. 



Harrisburg, October 2, 1812. 
James Lambertox, Esq.. Inspector of the First Brigade, Seventh 
Division, Pennsijlvania Militia, at Carlisle : 
Sir : The patriotic endeavors of a number of the young men of 
the borough of Carlisle to form themselves into a corps of artiller- 
ists, of which the Governor has received information through 
Messrs. Wilson and Bell, members of the association, are highly 
approved of by him, and he directs me to communicate his wish to 
the members of that association through you, that they may con- 
tinue those endeavors until the number is completely uniformed 
and equipped to tlie number of forty men and upwards, required 
by law, so as to entitle the officers duly elected and returned to re- 
ceive their commissions, and the company to the piece of ordinance, 
which, under the provisions of the militia law, may be furnished. 



WAR OF 1812-14. 603 

The Governor has no doubt of the readiness of this company, 
when organized, to obey the call of the government, and that, when- 
ever their services shall be lawfully required in the field, the neces- 
sary cannon and horses will be furnished by the government. 
I am respectfully. 

Your friend and obedient servant, 

JAMES TRIMBLE. 



JAMES TRIMBLE TO SAMUEL WALLICH. 



Office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth, 

Harrisburg, October 8, 1812. 
To Samuel Wallich, Esq., Major of the Second Battalion of the 
Fifty-second Begiment Eleventh Division, Pennsylvania Militia: 
Sir: Your letter of the 1st inst., communicating a tender of ser- 
vices of the rifle company attached to your battalion, has been re- 
ceived by the Governor, who directs me to inform you, and the offi- 
cers and men of that company, that, inasmuch as there is no requi- 
sition of the President's uncomplied with, the commissions of, the 
volunteers is the less urgent, and may be delayed until a regular 
return of the election of the officers, as required by law, from the 
Brigade Inspector can be had. In the mean time the Governor ap- 
plauds much the patriotism of tlie company, who at this crisis liave 
volunteered their services in defence of our country's rights, long 
violated by an implacable foe. 

I am, sir, respectfully, 

Your obedient servant, 

JAMES TRIMBLE. 



GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO GEN. WILLIAM REED. 



Harrisburg, October 12, 1812. 
To Gen. William Reed : 

Sir : Your letter, under date of the 26th ult., stating difficulties 
connected with the electing or designating of a Brigadier General 
to command the detachment that are to rendezvous at Pittsburgh, 
and the field officers, I did not receive until late in the evening of 
the 5th instant ; I thought it then too late to give you any explana- 
tion of my general order. 



G(»4 WAE OF 1812-14. 

But, 111)011 rertection, I think it not improbable that you maj^ be 
waitiiij,' for all answer before you proceed to carry the orders into 
effect. If the direction to elect a Brigadier General and field offi- 
cers, liy tlie officers and privates composing the detachment, be at 
variance with the letter and spirit of the law, the law must un- 
doiiljtedly govern you. If the detachments consist of drafts, which 
you will have ascertained by the report of the proper officers, the 
desigiialing jirinciple must evidently obtain. The militia law con- 
tains contradictory provisions wMiich cannot be reconciled, and ren- 
ders extremely difficult the execution of the duties it enjoins. Such 
a construction as seems best calculated to promote the public inter- 
est I trust you have already given, or will yet give, the law. The 
otticers are to take rank according to the date of their commissions, 
agreeably to a law which also directs that all commissions shall bear 
date on the same day, and when two or more of the same grade bear 
even date, tlieir rank shall be determined by lot. From tliis view it 
would ai»pear to be proper for the field officers of the drafted militia 
to be designated in conformity to the law, and the volunteer com- 
l)anies, if tliere be any, to elect their field officers agreeal)ly to the 
law. If the detachment be composed of both descriptions of mi- 
litia, there is no explicit direction in the law for the selection of a 
Brigadier General. In such case no other alternative presents itself 
to nw mind at present, but that the Brigadiers General of the State 
(their commissions bearing one date) do meet and draw lot for com- 
mand, or that the detachment elect one. The former might be at- 
tended with injurious delay. The principles of equity, as well as 
I^ublie advantage, would seem to dictate the latter. 
I am, sir, very respectfully, 

Your friend and obedient servant, 

SIMON SNYDER. 



GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO GEN. JOHN KELSO. 



Harrisbukg, October 21, 1812. 
Gen. John Kelso, at Erie : 

Sir : The short period of time within which Maj. Clark contem- 
plated i)erforming his journey from this place to Meadville, led me 
to lioi)e my letter of the 16th September would reach you in time, 
so that 1 might have had your answer about the first day of this 
present month, before which day I anticipated an answer, from the 
Secretary at War, to my application to the President for aid in de- 
fending our lake frontier. His answer I received the 25th Septem- 



WAR OF 1812-14. 605 

ber, and with much anxiety indeed, did I expect an answer from 
you, because on it, principally, did I intend to predicate future 
measures. 

What I said relative to the employment, by the United States, 
of the anticipated surplus force at Meadville in the defense of Erie, 
seems to have been construed by you as dictating a delay of your 
answer until it was ascertained whether a surplus would or would 
not result out of the rendezvous at that place. I had at length 
concluded that probably you accorded in opinion with the Secretary 
at War, " that the several forces destined for Detroit and Niagara 
would prevent any incursions of the enemy on Lake Erie." Your 
letter of the 1st October, (which I did not receive until the 16th, 
and which I could not answer by mail before to-morrow,) has un- 
deceived me. 

I have to regret that out of occurrences not within my control, 
there may have happened an interval between the expiration of ser- 
vice of tiiose of the militia on service under my orders of the loth 
day of July last, and the arrival of any draft to supply them, unless 
you have engaged volunteers to serve as you contemplated doing. 
Believing with you, that with the end of next month the necessity 
for any defense will cease, and persuaded that a regular draft from 
the militia cannot be had in service much short of the period when 
the necessity may cease to exist, I do, therefore, request, order, and 
direct you to employ volunteers, if practicable, for the defence of 
Erie, not exceeding a major's command ; that they be continued in 
service to the 30th November next, if by you deemed necessary. I 
feel confident that the Legislature will provide by law for the ex- 
pense that maybe incurred, if it should be deemed not to come 
within the provisions of the existing laws. 

SIMON SNYDER. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO MAJ. SAMUEL WALLICH. 



Harrisburg, October 28, 1812. 
To Maj. Samuel Wallicii : 

Sir : Mr. Thomas Wharry, lieutenant elect of a rifle company 
within the bounds of the Second battalion, Fifty-second regiment, 
Pennsylvania militia, informs me that in consequence of the said 
officers not having received their commissions, a fine has been im- 
posed on the officers and men of the said company. In addition to 
the suggestion contained in Mr. Trimble's letter, under date of Oc- 
tober 8, 1812, 1 have to state explicitly that the reason why commis- 



606 



WAR OF 1812-14. 



sioiis did not issue, was because the return was not made by the 
Brigadier Iiisi)ector, who is the proper officer to make return of mil- 
itia oilicers elect, and to certify that thirty or more men were in 
complete uniform. Hence, then, it was not in consequence of any 
default or neglect of the officers or men composing the company, 
that commissions were not issued. Under such circumstances tiie 
field oUicers will judge of the justice or propriety of imposing fines 
upon the ofiicers and men composing said company. 
Very respectfully, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO EBEXEZER DENNY. 



Harrisburg, November 4, 1812. 
To Ebenezer Denny, at Pittsburgh: 

Sir : The Governor being absent from the seat of govenrment, 
and will not return until sometime hence, I, in the meantime, con- 
ceive it my duty to state to you, that no one viewed with more re- 
gret than the Governor, the embarrassments which were likely to 
attend the marching of the militia to the place of rendezvous in 
consequence of the want of money. He had conceived that a liberal 
construction of the militia law, would justify an advance to the 
Brigade Inspectors, to enable them to meet the expenses thereof ; in 
wliich opinion, liowever, he was opposed by the Auditor General 
and State Treasurer. Thus circumstanced, he adopted the mode 
mentioned in his general orders of the 25th of August, to which 
mode all the Brigade Inspectors accommodated themselves, except 
Maj. Cochran. If he will transmit a statment of his accounts in 
detail, as other Brigade Inspectors have done, it will receive imme- 
diate attention. 

Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU.

N. B. BOILEAU TO J. INGERSOLL. 



Harrisburg, November 21, 1812. 
To J. Inoersoli., Esq. : 

Sir : In consequence of a communication received from you in 
July last, relative to certain persons charged with kidnapping and 
carrying away certain free negroes from the city of Philadelpliia, 
the Governor applied to the Governor of Maryland to have them 
arrested. By a letter from him of the 5th ult., the Governor is 
informed that one of them, Joseph Rock, is ari-ested, and ready to 
be delivered to such agent as the Governor may appoint for that 
purpose. I herewith inclose to you a commission appointing an 
agent. There is a blank in the commission, which the Governor 
requests you to fill with the name of any person you may think 
proper. You will please to inform me, when convenient, of the 
name you have inserted, in order to complete our record. I also in- 
close to you a copy of a letter from Judge Scott to the Governor of 
Maryland, also a copy of an affidavit made by one of the negroes. 
As the Abolition Society take an interest in the affairs of free ne- 
groes, it is probable that some of that society, being informed of the 
situation of those negroes, who, it appears, have been put in prison 
for their safe keeping, would take measures for relieving them from 
their present situation. It is unjust that they should be kept in 
confinement, having been charged with no crime. I have it also in 
charge from the Governor to inquire what progress you have made 
in consolidating the penal laws, in compliance with a request of the 
Legislature at their last session. 

Yery respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU.

Sir : Your letter of the 19th of the last month has been received 
by the Governor, who applauds much the patriotism of the ofiicers 
and men of your company, in tendering their services as volunteers,

at this iiiiiK>rtant crisis, in defence of their country's rights, so long 
violated by an implacable foe, and he has no doubt of their readi- 
ness to obey the call of the government, whenever their services 
sliall be lawfully required; at present, however, there is no requisi- 
tion unconiplied with on liis part. Before the commissions can be 
obtained it sliould appear that the company has been organized, and 
till' otlicers elected, in conformity with the fourth section of the 
militia law passed the 9th day of April, 1807, and tlie second section 
of tiie supplement act passed tlie 26th day of Marcli, 1808; as soon, 
therefore, as the Brigade Inspector shall have made a return of the 
election of tlie officers as duly held, and it is duly certified to the 
Governor that tiie company is organized and equipped agreeably to 
law, the commissions will be issued without any delay. 
I am, sir, respectfully.

N. B. BOILEAU TO .TARED INGERSOLL. 



Habrisburg, February 12, 1813. 

To Jared Ingersoll, Esq. : 

Sir : Several depositions taken in a certain cause or causes now 
before the Supreme Court, wherein the Commonwealth is plaintiff, 
and James Harris and the representatives of the late Dr. Smith, and 
perhaps others, are defendants, were put into hands of the Governor 
by Benjamiu R. Morgan, who is of counsel for the defendants, with 
a view to induce him to stop further proceedings against the de- 
fendants by entering an exoneration on their contracts with the 
former Governor Mifflin for making certain improvements. Mr. 
Morgan left tliis place without having called on the Governor, as he 
had said he would, to know his determination. On a perusal of these 
depositions, it occurred to the Governor that the contracts referred 
to and tiieir non-performance had, at one time, formed the subject 
of complaint to the Legislature. Upon examination of the journal 
of the House of Representatives of the session of 1801-2, it is found 
that comi)laint was made— see page 141, again, page 187, same page, 
Mr. Harris' letter, then a member of the Senate, in exculpation. It 
appears that on the 5th February, 1802, Mr. Harris acknowledged 
the delinquency of himself and the other contractors. It is remark- 
able tliat the deponants above alluded to, studiously avoid mention- 
ing dates. If, therefore, there is no proof that work was performed 
subsequently to Mr. Harris' acknowledgment of delinquency, the 



WAR OF 1812-14. 609 

depositions ouglit not to avail anytliing. Mr. Burnside, your deputy 
in Centre county, to wliom tlie depositions were delivered yesterday, 
at the instance of Mr. Morgan, to a question to this effect : Whether 
it had ever been attempted to prove that the finishing hand was put 
to those contracts, or that any work whatever had been done sub- 
sequently to Mr. Harris' acknowledged delinquency, answered there 
was no such proof offered nor alleged. The reports of the agents 
of information stand against the contractors uncontradicted. In- 
deed, when the great length of time has elapsed since the public ex- 
position of the contractors before the Legislature is taken into view, 
and an attempt is now made to prove a discharge from the contracts 
in a manner not warranted by the law that binds the State as well 
as the contractor. The defense, grounded on depositions that may 
justly be called exparte, (for the Commonwealth counsel was unin- 
structed, and consequently unprepared to cross-question the wit- 
nesses,) is too much to be relied on. 

Understanding from Mr. Burnside the trial is to come on, on 
Monday next, I have submitted to you the foregoing remarks by the 
direction of the Governor. 

I am, with respect, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Deputy Secretary.

To Gen. William H. Harrison, Commander of the North-ioestern 

army : 

Sir : This clay, as you will perceive by its date, was approved an 
act of the Legislature of tiiis State, contemplating a reward to 
those of the brigade of Pennsylvania militia composing a part of 
the north-western army, who shall continue in the field, under your 
command, for two months longer than the period for which they 
were detached for the service of the United States. 

That each individual will be emulous most to deserve the applause 
of their commander, I anticipate from the honorable testimonial 
of correct conduct which your letter to me of the 9th inst., fur- 
nishes, and I hesitate not to predict for them a perpetuation of hon- 
orable fa me to posterity. Your letter to me of the 9th inst., furnished 
the subject matter of a communication to the Legislature. The 
embarrassment to which the Pennsylvania officers are subject, has, 
unfortunately, grown out of our very imperfect militia system, and 
I fear the Legislature under existing circumstances, is not compe- 
tent to provide an appropriate remedy. I shall be happy to commu- 
nicate a different result. Be pleased, sir, as soon as convenient, to 
pronuilgiite amongst the interested, the contents and the object of 
the law. The earliest possible attention shall be paid to the other 
injunctions on the executive. 

Accept, sir, assurances * 

of my high respect,

March 6, 1813. 

In order to the execution of the general orders of the Command- 
er-in-Chief of yesterday, the Adjutant General directs the follow- 
ing organization and officering of the detachment destined for the 
service of the United States: 

The detachment will be commanded by Lewis Rush, Colonel Com- 
mandant, appointed and commissioned by the Governor. Under 
him is to serve, in command, the marching Lieutenant Colonel and 
marching Major from the First brigade of the First division, also 
the marching Major from the Second brigade of said division. The 
Lieutenant Colonel to have attached to him his Regimental Surgeon. 

Ten captains, ten lieutenants, ten ensigns, as designated by law. 
Ten second lieutenants and ten third lieutenants to be chosen agree- 
ably to the act supplementary to the militia law passed March 29, 
1813. The detachment to consist of ten companies of one hundred 
men in each, officers and privates. Nine of said companies shall 
be composed of the drafted infantry and one of artillery. Four 
hundred infantry and one hundred artillery to be furnished by the 
First brigade, and five hundred infantry from the Second brigade, 
of said First division. 

The Brigade Inspectors of the proper brigades will immediately 
communicate these orders to the officers concerned, to use all legal 
means to have the detachment at the place of rendezvous at the 
time appointed ; to collect all the public arms within their respective 
brigades, and therewith arm the detachment. If any should be un- 
supplied it is presumed tliey will be furnished out of the United 
States arsenal on loan. 

Colonel Lewis Rush is hereby appointed my assistant to organize 
the detachment, agreeably to law and the general orders ; and Col- 
onel John Binns, aid to the Commander-in-Chief, is solicited to aid 
and assist him therein.

A convention of military officei'S of the First divi^n of Pennsyl-

diate measures be taken for the defence of the city of Philadelphia 
and adjacent country in this State, against any hostile attempt that 
may V)e made by the British foe, (now remaining in a threatening 
posture in the waters of the Delaware,) to invade our territory, I 
have deemed it necessary to adopt precautionary measures for de- 
fence, and do, therefore, order the Militia Legion, commanded by 
Lieut. Col. John Smith, and the regiment of artillery, commanded 
by Lieut. Col. EV)enezer Ferguson, to hold themselves in readiness 
to march ata moment's warning, under the command of Brig. Gen. 
Robert Wharton, against any enemy that shall have invaded the 
State of Pennsylvania.

To Wilson Smith, Quarter-master General of the Militia of Penn-

Sir : The appearance of a British squadron having excited fears 
in the minds of the citizens of the city and county of Philadelphia 
for the safety of the said city and the public and private property in 
and near the same, and I having, under date of this day, issued or- 
ders to hold in readiness a portion of the militia of that section of 
the State, to defend, in case of actual invasion, the State ; it has, 
therefore, become necessary to make provision for the supply of such 
militia, as may be ordered into service under my said orders, with 
ammunition and other munitions of war. I do, therefore, authorize 
and require you, the said Wilson Smith, in your capacity as Quarter- 
master General, to employ an agent at Philadelphia, and direct him, 
in case an invasion of the State by the British shall happen, to pur- 
chase ammunition and other munitions of war, for the supply of such 
troops as may go into service under my said orders, to any amount 
not exceeding five thousand dollars.

Messrs. Binns and Acheson : 

The provisions of the law inclosed to you by the Secretary of the 
Commonwealth, it is hoped, will meet the wishes of the banks who 
have offered to loan to the State money, for the object specified in 
the law, under which you have acted as agents of the executive. Not 
having heard that the Farmers' and Mechanics' bank have agreed 
to take a part of the loan, the note attached to Mr. Binns' letter of 
the 26th instant, purporting to be a suggestion of the president of 
said bank, that certificates of stock' for that institution might also 
be issued by the State, needs explanation. The earliest information 
is required to know how much of the one million is taken in Phila- 
delphia.

Harrisburg, Ilarch 31, 1813. 

To N. B. Boileau, Aid -de- Cam o: 

A re(iuisition having been made by the executive authority of the 
General Government, that I would order on sei-vice, for the United 
States, for the protection of our naval armament at the town of 
Erie, in the county of Erie, within the limits of Pennsylvania, a 
detachment of militia. Therefore, in compliance with the said re- 
quisition, I order into the military service of the Union, to rendez- 
vous at the said town of Erie, on or before the 20th day of April 
next, a detachment to consist of one thousand men, to be drafted 
fi-om the Eleventh, Twelftli and Thirteenth divisions, and of Cap- 
tain Samuel Thomas' company of artillery, of the Ninth division, 
who have patriotically volunteered their service to the Governor, 
which detachment sliall be organized and officered agreeably to the 
ndes and regulations that obtain in the army of the United States, 
recognized by an act of the Legislature of this State, passed the 29th 
inst., and agreeably also to the several other laws of this State rela- 
tive to the militia, so far fortii as such laws will apply to and come 
in aid of the orders of the Secretary at War, and the special provi- 
sions of the said law of tlie 29th inst., of which detachment I have 
constituted Bees Hill, Esq., of Greene county. Colonel, by commis- 
sion, under the Great Seal of the State, who is to obey and execute

all orders that issue to him from his superior officer of tlie United 
States army. On the officers and privates under his command strict 
obedience is enjoined to all his orders and commands, so long as the 
detachment shall remain in the service of the United States. The 
Commander-in-Chief, with pleasure and with pride, quotes from a 
letter to him from General William H. Harrison, an encomium 
highly to the credit of tlie detachment "of Pennsylvania militia 
under his command, as worthy the imitation of our citizen soldiers: 
"lean assure you there is no corps on whom I rely with more con- 
fidence, not only for the fidelity of undaunted valor in the field, but 
for those virtues which are more rarely found amongst the militia- 
patience and fortitude under great hardships and deprivations, and 
cheerful obedience to all commands of their officers."

tained in the letter, the Governor issued orders yesterday for one 
thousand militia to rendezvous at Erie, on or before the 20th instant.

To Wilson Smith, Quarter-Master General: 

Sir : In obedience to the requisition of the Secretary at War, the 
Governor lias ordered out one tliousand militia, to rendezvous at 
Erie on or before the 20th inst. A copy of the orders are enclosed. 
The Deputy Quarter-Master General is ordered by the Secretary at 
War to furnish the necessary supplies from Pittsburgh, You will 
receive and receipt for the articles when they arrive. You will ren- 
der every aid in your power to Colonel Hill, in effecting the object 
of his appointment. If you apprehend there is not muskets and 
cartouch-ljoxes enough at or in the neighborliood of Erie to supply 
those of tlie troops that may arrive witliout them, you will endeavor 
to ascertain wiiether or not they can be had out of the United States 
stores at Pittsburgh. If not, you will give the earliest information 
to tlie Governor, so that the deficiency may be supplied from this 
place as soon as practicable. An artillery company is ordered from 
Luzerne, say about fifty men ; they ought to have fusees. Could 
they be had from Pittsburgh ? if not, they must have muskets, for 
which they ought to have leather slings and bayonet scabbards, 
which you will please to procure. 

The Governor has written to the Secretary at War on the above 
subject. 

Very respectfully, 

Your obedient servant, 

N.B. BOILEAU.

lars, for the purpose of supplying the men under your command 
witii necessaries on their march to the place of rendezvous, where 
you will be furnished with a piece of artillery, fusees, or muskets, • 
and necessary camp equipage. You will have forwarded to me a 
receipt for the check enclosed. 

I am also instructed by the Governor to direct you to march your

GOV. SIMOX S^^YDER TO JOHN ARMSTRONG. 



Harrisburg, April 1 , 1813. 
To John Armstong, Esq., Secretary at War : 

Sir : Enclosed I transmit to you a copy of my general orders of 
the 31st March, predicated on your requisitory letter to me of the 
20th of the same month, whicJi I received on the 27th, for a detach- 
ment of one thousand militia, to rendezvous at Erie, on the 20th 
inst., for the protection of the United States naval armament at 
that place. Under our military system, it was not possible to have 
executed literally and in detail your orders. Full Colonels are not 
recognized in our law, nor have we Second or Third Lieutenants. 
The short delay that has happened in the execution of both your 
orders was occasioned by the necessity there was for legislative in- 
terference, to make legal the organization and officering the detach- 
ment, conformably with the United States requisitions. Such an 
act being passed on the 29th inst., I hastened to execute your orders 
for the Erie detachment on the 31st. Though not so directed, I 
thought it of importance that some artillery should be of the detach- 
ment. I did accordingly order a company, consisting of about fifty 
men, commanded by Capt. Thomas, of well disciplined artillerists, 
to march as a component part of the detachment. Agreeaby to your 
request, the companies, as soon as formed, are ordered to march to 
Erie. At Waterford, fifteen miles from Erie, remain four brass 
field pieces, the property of the State, in prime condition ; these are 
as many as there may be occasion for. Quarter-master Genera* 
Wilson Smith, of Erie county, will furnish the company, if you so 
direct. As it is probable a portion of- the men may appear at Erie 
unarmed, I would suggest the propriety of orders from you to the 
Superintendent of Military Stores at Pittsburgh, to furnish, on 
loan, those that may be unsupplied amongst them. I wish there 
may be fifty fuses for arming therewith the company of artillery, 
whom I could not furnish, because we have not any of tliat species 
of arms the property of the State. Having, previous to your first 
orders, adopted measures preparatory to a defence of the city of 
Philadelphia and the shores of the Delaware, and having no fears 
for the safety of the city of Philadelphia, and the embarrassment 



620 



WAR OF 1812-14. 



above alluded to presenting itself, I delayed executing your orders 
relative to that place. The difficulty being now removed, 1 shall 
proceed to execute those orders also, unless otherwise directed by 
the Executive of tiie Union. That the species of force is not pre- 
scribed is, in some degree, embarrassing. 
Accept of my high respect and consideration.

To Col. John Phillips : 

Sir : The Governor has directed me to inform you of his intention 
to appoint you Paymaster or agent under the several acts relative 
to the detachment of our militia now in the service of the United 
States under Gen. Harrison. In your fitness and integrity he has 
full confidence ; and in confidence that you will accept thereof, he 
has directed me to forward to you a bond for your signature, and 
that of two other gentlemen, as your sureties, in whom he can 
have like confidence. This bond you will transmit signed, and at- 
tested by witnesses, to this department. Copies of the two laws 
under which you will have to act will be furnished you by the next 
mail. It will be necessary, also, that you forward to this place a 
letter of attorney, whereby in your capacity of agent or Paymaster 
you authorize some friend here, say Mr. John Cochran, to receive 
for you, and in your name, any sum of money that may be drawn 
for, in your favor by the warrarit of the Governor on the State 
Treasurer, for the purpose mentioned and contained in act entitled 
"An .act to grant compensation, for extra services, to the militia 
of the Commonwealth now in service under the command of Gen. 
William II. Harrison," and of another act entitled "An act mak- 
ing further provision for the militia and volunteers in this State in 
the service of the United States. 

Let the authority you vest in your agent be general as to the receipt 
for you out of the Treasury of any sum that you may deem requi- 
site, and the giving and signing of such acquittance as the State 
Treasurer may require. Arrangements are now making so that you 
can receive the requisite money at the Branch Bank at Pittsburgh. 
You will apprise Gen. Crooks of your appointment, and direct him 
to send the pay-rolls required to be furnished by him, to the agent 
or Paymaster, at Pittsburgh. For the duties incumbent on you,

Li, in the discharge of the duty incumbent on you by law before 
or at the time of tlie organization of the detachment at Erie, on the 
20th instant, ordered into service in conformity with a requisition

Sir: Your letter of the 2d inst., to the Secretary of the Com- 
monwealth, (who is now absent,) on the subject of military equip- 
ments for the militia, or by the Governor, to be held in readiness to 
march at a moment's warning against any enemy that may invade 
the State, came to hand this morning. The Governor has just pe- 
rused it, and has instructed me to say that general orders having 
issued for the rendezvousing at Philadelphia of one thousand drafted 
militia of the First division for the protection of the city and the 
shores of the Delaware, under requisition from the constituted au- 
thority of the United States, and this force being, as it ought to be, 
at the disposition of the General commanding for the United States, 
in the district, and the Governor deeming it adequate for all pres- 
ent, and any reasonably anticipated exigency, he will, so soon as 
the organization of the detachment shall be complete, countermand 
his orders of the 20th March last, unless circumstances should im- 
periously forbid it. And he directs that you will, in the interim, 
incur no expense under theQuarter-Master General deputation with- 
out special orders. About the arming and equipping of this detach- 
ment, the Governor supposes there will be no difficulty, as the United 
States have already establislied a precedent which it is presumed 
will not be departed from in the present instance unless the system 
should have been changed. The two detachments of Pennsylvania

JAMES TRIMBLE TO MESSRS. EDWARDS AND ANDER- 
SON. 



Secretary's Office, Harrisburg, April 7, 1813. 
To Messrs. Samuel Edwards and Thomas D. Anderson : 

Gentlemen : Your letter to the Governor, under date of .the 2d 
inst., did not come to hand before the 5th. It hence has happened 
that you could not have an answer in time to lay before those, who 
in conjunction with yourselves have patriotically associated for the 
l)urpose of defending against the British foe, the shores of the Del- 
aware. An uncommon press of business has prevented till this 
morning a reply by me (the Secretary being absent) to your queries, 
I hasten to do it now, hoping it may yet be in time to carry the 
means, and thus give effect to the zeal wliich animates the corps of 
which you are members. 

Querie isl. Will the Governor order the Brigade Inspector to fur- 
nish the Chester volunteer company sixty muskets, with bayonets 
and cartouch-boxes, upon their giving bond for the safe keeping, 
and returning of the same within a specified time ? 

Answer. The Governor will direct the late Brigade Inspector to 
furnish you and sucli otheV two gentlemen, as will agree to enter 
into bond for tiie safe re-delivery, and shall be approved by the Brig- 
adier General, in your personal capacities, at a period to be fixed in 
the condition of such bonds, sixty muskets and bayonets, and if 
they can be procured, as many cartouch-boxes for the purpose of 
arming therewith the company of volunteers of which you are mem- 
bers. 

Querie 2d. Will the Governor commission a volunteer company 
who tender tlieir services merely for the local defence, and not for 
a general purpose ? 
Answer. There being no law warranting the officering any corps 



WAR OF 1S12-U. 627 

for local defence, the Governor cannot grant commissions other 
than is prescribed by law. Companies of volunteers have dissolved 
themselves, and I know of no law, however irregular such practice 
may have been, that provides a penalty consequent to such act. 

A blank bond shall be forwarded to the Brig. Gen. William Brook, 
with instructions to deliver the arms as soon as the same is duly ex- 
ecuted and delivered to liim. 

I am, respectfully. 

Your obedient servant,

son of Chester, in Delaware county, the Governor has agreed to loan 
sixty muskets with bayonets, and, if they can be procured, as many 
cartouch-boxes for the purpose of arming therewith the Chester 
volunteer company of infantry, of which the said gentlemen are 
members, provided Mr. Edwards and Mr. Anderson, with sucli other 
two gentlemen (to be approved of by you) as will agree so to do, en- 
ter into bond for the safe keeping and re-delivery of the said arms, 
«&c., in good order in six montlis from the time of receiving them. 
The Governor accordingly directs you to deliver, out of the number 
you have in store, to Samuel Edwards and Thomas D. Anderson, or 
to either of them, or to their order, sixty muskets with bayonets, 
and as many cartridge-boxes, if you have them, upon the inclosed 
bond being previously executed in due form by the above named 
gentlemen and sureties, and delivered to you ; to be afterwards trans- 
mitted to tliis office and filed therein. A copy of the letter written 
to Messrs. Edwards and Anderson is inclosed. 

I am, respectfully, 

Your friend, 

JAMES TRIMBLE,

GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO WILSON SMITH. 



Harkisburg, April 12, 1813. 
To Wilson Smith, Quarter-Master General of the Militia of Penn- 
syJrania, at Erie; in his absence, to Rees Hill, Esq., Colonel 
commandant at that place. 

Sir : Apprehenrting that few of the militia ordered to rendezvous 
at Erie, in this month, will come supplied with cartridge-boxes, I 
hasten to forward, by Archibald Kerr, of Green county, one thou- 
sand. Tlie price of cartage agreed upon is $300, $100 thereof was 
paid liim here. If he delivers them in good condition at Erie, you 
will pay him the balance of $200. Your order for that sum on me, 
written under his receipt, will be paid at sight. 

Very respectfully, 

Your friend, 

SIMON SNYDER. 



GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO COL. JOHN BINNS. 



Harrisburg, \Zth April, 1813. 
Col. Joiix BiNNS, Philadelphia: 

Dear Sir : To save expense, and to allay an alarm unnecessarily 
excited, I shall adopt the Baltimore system for defence. You may 
expect orders to that effect in time to promulgate them on the 19th, 
immediately after the organization shall have been completed under 
Col. Rusli. Whether I shall order those that may remain under the 
coniniand of Gen. Wharton, after that organization shall have been 
effected, to be of the requisition as suggested by the President, un- 
der date of the 7th inst., through the Secretary at War, and th.us 
make up a detachment of two thousand men, I have yet under ad- 
visement. The suggestions of the President have, I presume, growu 
out of an opinion that I gave, tliat the city of Philadelphia was not 
in any danger from any hostile attack meditated by the British 
squadron then in the Delaware. 

On the subject of the loan, I rely on your and Mr. Acheson's judg- 
ment and sound discretion that, under the circumstances connected 



WAR OF 1812-14. 629 

with that delicate subject, no unnecessary expense will be incurred. 

Faithfully yours, &c., 

SIMON SNYDER. 



GENERAL ORDERS. 



Harrisburg, Uth April, 1813. 
To N. B. BoiLEAu : 

The President of the Umted States, under date of the 7th inst., 
having, through the Secretary at War, expressed the opinion that 
the city of Philadelphia is not menaced by any imminent danger, 
but that the shores of the Delaware, being liable to outrage, it might 
be well to have a corps ready to repel attacks should they be made'; 
that to fulfill both these purposes, it might be sufficient to organ- 
ize, arm, and equip a corps of militia, and hold it ready to be called 
into actual service, either wholly or partially, by the general officers 
commanding the district. 

According, in opinion with the President, and in order to prevent 
a divison from other pursuits of a large portion of our citizens, by 
ordering them into the field when there is no enemy to oppose, I do 
revoke so much of the general orders of the 5th inst., as directs the 
detachment ordered on service to rendezvous, on the 19th inst., at 
Philadelphia, and I do order and direct that tlie organization of the 
detachment and otHcering the companies, respectively, agreeably to 
the Adjutant General's detail, attached to said orders of the oth 
inst., be done and performed by Colonel Commandant Lewis Rush 
within each battalion bounds, of which the First division is com- 
posed, on the said 19tli day of April, and on any day or days before 
the 27th inst. 

The proper Brigade Inspectors are ordered to give notice to the 
drafts of the battalions, respectively, of the day and hour on wliicli 
the said Col. Rush will attend, for the organization and officering 
of a company or companies out of such battalion. In the perform- 
ance of which, it is presumed he will have the assistance of Col. 
John Binns. 

The duties incumbent on said Brigade Inspectors, and on the offi- 
cers and men to compose the detacliment, it is fondly anticipated 
will be performed with their accustomed zeal and alacrity. The 
detachment being organized and equipped as directed, will hold it- 
self in readiness for actual service in the field, and rendezvous for 
that purpose at such time and place as Brig. Gen. Bloomfleld, the 
commanding general of the district, shall order and direct. 



630 



WAR OF 1812-U. 



Col. Joliii Biiins, aid to the Governor, is directed to furnish a 
copy of this order to Gen. Bloonifield, and to present duplicates 
thereof to Col. Lewis Rush, and the Brigade Inspectors of First di- 
vision of Pennsylvania militia. 

SIMON SNYDER. 



GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO JOHN ARMSTRONG. 



Hakrtsburg, A2)ril 15, 1813. 
To John ArmstIiong, Esq., Secretary of War : 

SiK : Immediately after the receipt of your letter of the 7th inst., 
wh'wh I have the honor to acknowledge, I issued, under date of yes- 
terday, general orders (a copy of whereof is herewith transmitted) 
conformably to the President's opinion and wishes communicated 
in your said letter. I had the less hesitation to revoke partially my 
order of the 5tii inst., which are predicated on your letter of the 20th 
March last, because the revocation will have been promulgated in 
time to prevent the expense and loss of time that would have en- 
sued uselessly by a rendezvousing of the detachment on the 19th 
inst., as I had previously directed in general orders, of which a copy 
is also herewith transmitted. To make up the number suggested 
l)y the President as necesary to be held in readiness for service, I 
should, in general orders of the Uth inst., have embraced the Phila- 
delphia militia legion, who have heretofore patriotically tendered 
their services to the Governor. This corps consists of horse artil- 
lery and infantry, and is about one thousand strong, and consists 
of residents within the city and liberties. But your letter of the 
20th March expressly requiring drafted militia, and tlie laws of 
Pennsylvania providing that volunteer corps shall be called into 
service by companies or half companies, and not by drafts, added to 
the ditllculties likely to arise if it were attempted to organize and 
officer those volunteers agreeably to your requisitory letters of the 
2(ith of March last, were considerations of weight sutBcient to dictate 
a delay until I shall liave learned whether the President will recog- 
nize the legion as of the detachment of two thousand men organized 
and otlicered as it now is under the law or law^s of Pennsylvania. 
Respectfully and with great sincerity, 
Your obedient servant, 

SIMON SNYDER.

JAMES TRIMBLE TO GE:N. ALEXANDER OGLE. 



Harrisburg, April 16, 1813. 

To Alexander Ogle, Esq., Major General of the Twelfth Division 

of Militia : 

Sir : I acknowledged, for the Governor, the receipt of your orders, 
dated the 7tli day of April, 1813, issued in your capacity of Major 
General of the Twelfth division of Pennsylvania militia ; and am 
directed to say, that the Governor has yet to learn that it was com- 
petent for a Major General to issue orders revoking those of the 
Commander-in-Chief. He has hitherto thought that all military 
officers in subordinate situations were bound to execute, implicitly, 
the lawful orders of their superior. 

You need scarcely be told that four classes of any division may be 
ordered into service, before it becomes the duty of the Commander- 
in-Chief to order out the classes of another or other divisions. 
I am, respectfully. 

Your obedient servant, 

JAMES TRIMBLE, 
Deputy Secretary. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO JOSEPH WORRELL. 

Harrisburg, May 7, 1813. 
To Joseph Worrell, Esq. : 

Sir : The Governor has adopted a plan of a State Arsenal, and 
described the manner in which the work is to be executed, both of 
which are put into the hands of Mr. Binns, where you can have an 
opportunity of inspecting them. 

You will perceive that it is necessary that the price for which you 
would engage to execute the work, agreeably to the plan adopted, 
should be stated. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



632 WAK OF 1812-14. 

X. B. BOILEAU TO FREDERICK FOERING. 



Harrisburg, May 7, 1813. 
Fi;kd'k Foering, Deputy Quarter-Master General: 

SiH : Yours of May 4th 1 have received. Tlie Governor directs 
that you should get the public arms mentioned in your letter com- 
I)letely repaired, selecting tliose in the first ijistance that require the 
least. You will endeavor to ascertain the expense that will oqcur 
in having the remainder made fit for service, and give information 
to this office. It will be necessary for you to inspect the arms after 
tliey are repaired, and forward to the accountant department a cer- 
tificate, with the account for repairs, that tliey are well done and 
the cliarge of the workmen reasonable. AVith regard to supplying 
the One Hundred and Fifty-fiftli regiment with arms, there is no 
law autliorizing a furtlier distribution of arms. If, however, that 
regiment, or any part tliereof, should be called into actual service, 
furnisli them with such arms as you shall have repaired and fit for 
service. Under a former law% the expense of repairing arms distri- 
buted was to be defrayed out of tlie regimental funds; those funds 
were generally inadequate. But this deficiency is supplied by the 
proviso to the eleventh section of the supplementary act to the mi- 
litia law, passed 29th March last, a copy of which, I expect, each 
Brigade Inspector has received. 

Very respectfully, 

Your obedient servant, 

N.B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



X. B. BOILEAU TO GEN. ROBERT WHARTON. 

Harrisburg, May 7, 1813. 
To Gen. Robert Wharton : 

Sir: Yours of the 27th ult., to the Governor has been duly re- 
ceived. In answer to which I have to state that the present, as well 
as former, complaint against the conduct of Andrew Nelson, ap- 
pears to have originated with the same individual. 

Wliile Mr. Israel, and many other respectable citizens who reside 
in the neighborliood, have declared that tliey felt no apprehension 
on account of Nelson's behavior. Nor have the dealers in powder 
expressed any fears from his conduct, but, on the contrary, a long list 
of them have certified tlieir entire confidence in Nelson. These cir- 



WAR OF 1812-14. 633 

cumstances seem to corroborate a statement made to the Governor, 
that the individual above alluded to has a personal hostility to Nel- 
son, and a desire to supplant him. I have also a letter now before 
me, from Mr. Keimle, of the 31st ult., in which there is no charge 
whatever alleged against Nelson. Under such circumstances the 
Governor does not think it expedient or just to remove Nelson from 
office. 

If you shall have ascertained, through a respectable source, say 
Mr. Israel and others living near the Magazine, that danger is really 
to be apprehended from the conduct of the Inspector and Deputy 
Superintendent, and will certify to that effect, the Governor will 
talie prompt measures to prevent the apprehended danger. I must 
also state that Dr. Keimle exculpates his deputy from all blame. 
Neither does he apprehend tlie possibility of its being injured by an 
incendiary from without. If tliere be danger, by a representation 
thereof to General Bloomfield, he would, no doubt, direct a portion 
of the militia under his direction to guard it. 

The Major General, also, of the division has power, under the act 
of 29th March last, to call out a sufficient number of militia, for a 
limited time, to guard any place where danger is apprehended. 

Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU.

Preparatory measures having been adopted by the general govern- 
ment to which it of right belongs, for defending the city of Phila- 
delphia, and the shores of the Delaware against any hostile attempts 
that may be made by the enemy. And it being ascertained that a 
portion of the militia under the command of Col. Lewis Rush, or- 
dered to be held in readiness for service, under a requisition of the 
President of the United States, and subject to the orders of Gen. 
Bloomfield, there commanding for the United States, is also subject 
to the orders of Gen. Robert 'Wharton, under general orders of 20th 
March last, from which circumstances, serious difficulties might 
arise, if orders conflicting with each other should issue. And it be- 
ing, moreover, now in the power of the proper Major General of the 
division to order out for a peried of time such portion of the vol- 
unteers or militia within his division, as he may deem necessary in 
any case of emergency. I have therefore deemed it necessary that 
my said orders of 20th March last, be revoked, and I do accordingly

GOV. SIM0:N SNYDER TO JAMES MADISON. 



Harrisburg, May 10, 1813. 
To James Madison, Esq., President of the United States: 

Siu : I liasteii to forward to you a copy of a resolution of the se- 
lect and couunon eoiuicils of the city of Philadelphia, and a copy, 
also, of a letter to me by a committee for that purpose, appointed 
by tliese bodies, from whicli, as also from a resolve by tlie latter, 
fpublisiied in tlie Democratic press of Friday last,) contemplating 
tlie appropriation of $30,000 out of the city fund for defence, it 
would appear that an alarm of a very serious nature prevails at this 
time at tliat place, founded, as it is stated, on the defenceless state 
of tlie Delaware. 

Permit me, sir, to their request, to add mine also. That such im- 
mediate measures may be taken on the waters of the Delaware, and 
preparatory measures for defence by land, as will, by their efficiency, 
inspire the iiiliabitants of that important place with the confidence 
of being fully prepared to repel any foe that shall have the temerity 
to invade our property. 

To any orders you may deem necessary to give, requiring my aid 
in their execution, I promise the most prompt attention. 
Sincerely and very respectfully. 

Your obedient servant, 

SIMON SNYDER. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO JOHN SMITH. 



Harrisburg, 3fay 11, 1813. 
To John Smith, Esq., Marshal, Pennsylmnia district : 

Sir : The Governor has a copy of a letter from you to the Adju- 
tant General of the militia of Pennsylvania, in which you inform 
him of the duties that devolve on you, as Marshal of the district, 
in the collection of fines that may have been imposed by courts-mar- 
tial on delinquent Pennsylvania militia men. That you " have to 



WAR OF 1S12-14. 635 

request that he will direct, in all cases where the reports of courts- 
martial are made to a deputy, that a transcript or duplicate may be 
forwarded to you, in order to the better execution of the law." The 
Adjutant General being absent at Erie, organizing a detachment of 
Pennsylvania militia for the service of the United States, you can- 
not have so early an answer from that officer as the service may re- 
quire ; I have, therefore, been directed by the Governor to say that 
the proceedings had against delinquents were had, at every instance, 
under the law of Pennsylvania constituting the proper Brigade In- 
spector and two assistants a court, to hear and determine on the 
case of every delinquent. That the proceedings are not in accord- 
ance with the act of Congress of 28th February, 1795, to which you 
allude in your letter, is obvious. This conflict between the laws of 
Pennsylvania and the United States occurred to him early last fall, 
and was the subject of a correspondence between him and a mem- 
ber of Congress. Nothing efficient, it is much to be regretted, was 
done by Congress, nor could he obtain from the Executive Depart- 
ment, through the same member, any satisfactory explanation or 
construction of that part of the act of Congress which so evidently 
conflicts with the State laws. 

We^do not know, nor can the Adjutant General know, the depu- 
ties you allude to. The several Brigade Inspectors have reported 
their i)roeeedings to the Auditor General, from him, on application, 
you can procure a list of delinquents — fined and exonerated — if you 
believe it is competent for you to proceed for the recovery of such 
fines, imposed under a law of the State not recognized by the act of 
Congress of 1795. The Governor, feeling a strong desire that the 
penalties of some one law should fall on the refractory and delin- 
quent militia, and more especially as he has been repeatedly peti- 
tioned for remission of fiiies imposed as aforesaid, and some cases 
requiring the interposition of the proper authority, wislies that a 
determination may be had, has, although the subject is not perhaps 
officially before him, directed this communication. 

Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



63G WAR OF 1812-14. 

X. B. BOILEAU TO SAMUEL CARSWELL. 

Harrisburg, 3Iay 11, 1813. 
To Samuel Carswell : 

SiK : Yours of tlie 7th nit., has been duly received by tlie last 
evening mail. The Governor has written to the President of the 
United States, agreeably to request contained in a letter received by 
the same mail, addressed to him by a committee appointed for that 
purpose, by tlic select and common councils, representing to him 
the exposed situation of the city and its vicinity, in consequence of 
tlie enemy's squadron in the Chesapeake, urging the particular at- 
tention of tlie President to the subject. 

Tie having just received important and unpleasant information 
from Erie repecting the defence of that place and the United States 
property there. Information being also communicated that a por- 
tion of the militia have marclied from Chester county to opi)ose the 
enemy in Maryland, and a serious alarm prevailing in Delaware 
county, wliich he is preparing to dissipate by forwarding arms and 
munitions of war, to enable the patriotic militia there to defend the 
shores of the Delaware below, and thus form a barrier for the city. 
All the concerns important in tlieir nature, and daily multiplying, 
can be attended to by iiim at the seat of government only ; and until 
he is fully ascertained that his presence is absolutely necessary at 
any particular ])lace, it is his duty to remain at the seat of govern- 
ment, where, with the necessary promptitude, he can attend to the 
various calls made on him from different and very distant quarters 
of the Commonwealth. 

Very respectfully, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO MR. T. D. ANDERSON. 



Harrisburg, May 12, 1813. 
To Mr. T. D. Axderson, Delaware county : 

Sir : Yours of the 7th ult., the Governor has received, and is pre- 
paring to forward as early as practicable five or six hundred stand 
of arms and cartouch-boxes from this place. He will also give im- 
mediate instruction to Fredk. Foering, Deputy Quarter-Master 
General, to supply you, whenever called on, with ammunition, if 



WAR OF 1812-14. 637 

not to be procured from the United States. With regard to tents 
and other camp equipage, there is none belonging to tlie State 
probably fit for use. He, however, has it in contemplation to have 
them procured as soon as possible. At this season of the year, and 
in a country so thickly settled, the men on service might, perliaps, 
find shelter from any inclemency of the weather, in houses, barns, 
or temporary huts. There were about one hundred and sixty old 
tents, by order of Gov. Mifflin, delivered to the Board of Health, 
in the year 1793. Mr. Foering will be instructed to ascertain their 
situation, and such as are, if any, fit for use, to deliver them to your 
Biigade Inspector or Quarter-Master. I herewith enclose to you a 
copy of a supplement to the militia law, by which you will perceive 
(Sec. 2) that the Major General is authorized to call " into actual 
service, and to organize such portion of the volunteers or militia 
within his division, as in his opinion the public safety may require." 
He residing in the vicinity when danger is apprehended, will be 
more competent to decide wliat number of men would be necessary 
to order into the field than the Governor could be at so remote a 
place, and could act more promptly, so as to meet the emergency. 
To him, therefore, would it be most expedient to apply. You will 
please to communicate the contents of this letter to Major Casper 
Snyder, and also furnish the Major General with a copy. 
Very respectfully, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO FREDERICK FOERING. 



Harrisbueg, Ifay 12, 1813. 
Frederick Foering, Deputy Quarter-Master : 

Sir : The Governor directs that you procure a sufficient number 
of tents and camp kettles to accommodate a thousand men, includ- 
ing officers, as early as practicable. That you will, also, ascertain 
as soon as you can the number and situation of those tents which 
were delivered by Governor Miffiin's order to the Board of Health, 
when the yellow fever was in the city, say 1793. Such as are. fit for 
use, and such as are worth repairing, have ready as expeditiously as 
practicable, to be delivered when called on by Maj. Gen. Steel, Third 
division Pennsylvania militia. Brigade Inspectors, or Quarter-Mas- 
ters belonging thereto. You were, if I mistake not, instructed by 
the Quarter-Master General to procure such munitions of war as 
might be requisite in case of a call of militia into the service of the

WAR OF 1812-14. 



State, tlie expense not to exceed 5^5,000. If, under those instruc- 
tions 'you have not procured lunmunition, you will please to attend 
to it iiuinediately. Maj. Gen. Steel or some proper officer will in- 
form you wliat quantity will be necessary, which you will deliver 
wlicn called on for that purpose. 

The Governor also directs you to contract with Mr. Henry Fraley, 
of Germantown, for five hundred cartridge-boxes, bayonetbelts, 
and scabbards, conformably to the sample he sent to this oflice, 
wliicli he offered to make at the rate of $2 20 for box, belt, and scab- 
l)ard. Inform me if yon think a greater number will be necessary. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO MAJ. GEN. JAMES STEEL. 

Harrisburg, 3Iay 12, 1813. 
Major General James Steel : 

Sir : I have much pleasure in the perusal of the communication 
you made me, under date of the 9th inst., that a portion of the mi- 
litia of your division have volunteered on an expedition to Marj'- 
land, there to assist their fellow-citizens of the Union in repelling 
the wanton aggression of a cruel and vindictive foe. 

Acting as they do, under the impulse of a patriotic feeling, they 
merit, and most assuredly will have, the applause of their country. 
But it is to be regretted that, under our existing laws, the meed of 
virtue will alone be their reward, there being no law of this State 
nor of the United States under which pay can be claimed. 

The act you did was not, I presume, by you considered as coming 
within the provisions of the second section of a supplement to our 
militia law passed the last session of the Legislature. 
Accept assurances of sincere regard. 

SIMON SNYDER.

N. B. BOILEAU TO GENERAL N. WATSON. 



Harrisburg, May 13, 1813. 
Gen. Watson : 

Sir : Yours of the lOtli ult., I received by this morning's mail. I 
communicated to the Governor the contents of your letter. So far 
as it relates to the ordering out of the militia from your division, 
am instructed to say that you are to determine whether the present 
case comes within the meaning of the second section of the supple- 
mentary act passed at the last session. Under a Requisition of the 
President of the United States, the Governor ordered one thousand 
militia to be detached, organized, and reported to General Bloom- 
field. This has been done. With a full knowledge of the movements 
of the enemy, General Bloomfield has not thought it necessary to 
order into actual service more than about three hundred and forty- 
eight men of that detachment. Representations have also been 
made to the Executive of the United States of the situation of the 
shores of the Delaware, but no further orders have been received 
by the Governor relative to their defence. Under tliese circum- 
stances the Governor thinks it inexpedient, at present, to direct you 
in the premises, he having no authority to order militia to march 
out of the limits of the State. If the State of Maryland wishes aid, 
General Bloomfield is the proper person to whom to apply. He can 
order the men under his command to any point within the limits of 
the United States at least. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU.

Harrisburg, May 13, 1813. 
To Capt. JA3IES Humes : 

Sir : Yours to the Governor of yesterday was received by this 
day's mail. The Governor highly applauds the patriotism of the 
volunteer companies of Lancaster, in marching to assist tlieir fellow 
citizens of Maii'land, in repelling the wanton aggression of a cruel 
and vindictive enemy. Acting, as you have done, under the impulse 
of patriotic feeling you merit, and must assuredly have the applause 
of your country. But it is to be regretted that under existing laws 



C-lU 



WAR OF 1812-14. 



the meed of virtue can be your only reward, except it be received 
from the .State of Maryland or the United States. The Governor 
not beins competent upon his own anthority to order militia out of 
tlie limits of the State. It is presumed you did not conceive your- 
selves as acting under the provisions of the second section of the 
supiilement to the militia law passed 29th March last. 
Accept assurances of ray most jjrdent desire for yonr success, 



honor, and personal safety.

Harrisbtjrg, May 13, 1813. 

To James Dunlap, Esq., Inspector of First Brigade, Fourteenth 

Division: 

Sir: The letter signed by you and Mr. Huston of 21st nit., was 
received by the Governor a few days since, relative to the collection 
of flues imposed for non-performance of military duty. In answer 
to which I have to state that it appears from a letter, a copy of 
which is now before me, from Jolui Smith, the Marshal of the 
Pennsylvania district, that he conceives it a duty devolved on him 
to collect militia fines, which have or may be assessed by courts- 
martial when called into the service of the United States, and di- 
rects the Adjutant General in all cases to report to him the names 
of the delinquents. The law of the United States, and of the State 
differ as to the mode of assessing those fines. The Governor directs 
me to write to the Marshal on the subject, which I have done ; un- 
til an answer is received from him, the Governor thinks it inexoe- 
dient to give any specific instructions to you in the premises. You 
will please to communicate the purport of this letter to Mr. S. Hus- 
ton. 

Very respectfully,

To Gen. Adamson Tannehill : 

Sir : I should long since liave acknowledged the receipt of the 
letter you did me the honor to write, under date of the — , but re- 
served my answer until I sliould have from you, or from the i)roper 
otRcer under your comman<l, information more intimately connected 
with the service than your letter imports, and involving much the 
pecuniary interest of the State of Pennsylvania. Disappointed iu 
that expectation and conceiving it my duty so to do, I do now ask 
for information relative to the arms in possession of the troops under 
your command, the property of the State. How many of those arms 
remained at Buffalo, in the State of New York, whether they were 
deposited in any United States arsenal, and by an officer of that 
government receipted for ? So that in the event of a settlement of 
accounts between this State and the United States, and, in a gen- 
eral point of view, I should be glad to learn whether there have come 
to your knowledge any expenses incuried by this State that ought, 
of right, be borne by the Union. 

Very respectfully yours, etc., 

SIMON SNYDER. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO CASPER SNYDER. 



Harrisburg, May 15, 1813. 

To Casper Snyder, Esq., of Delaware: 

Sir : This day, by order of the Governor, three hundred and fifty 
stand of arms and three hundred cartouch-boxes have been for- 
warded to Chester, for the use of your brigade, or those generally 
belonging to the Third division of Pennsjdvania militia, when called 
into actual service. Should tlie muskets be delivered to the men 
going into service, you will be careful to take accountable receipts 
from the proper officer who commands them. Presuming that 5'ou 
would not be at Chester when the wagoner would arrive there, he 
has been directed to deliver them to Mr. Engle, the Prothonotary 
of your county, wiio is requested to take charge of them until you 
arrive there. If you and the general officers of the division think 
more arms are necessary, they can be had at this place, by sending 
a team for them. It is with great difficulty, and after three or four

days" search, we have been able to procure a single wagon. We pay 
$1 25 per cwt. Should you send for more muskets and boxes, a rea- 
sonable expense will be paid by the government at this place. It is 
to be understood that the muskets and eartouch-boxes are not the 
subject of distribution under any law of the State. The crisis ap- 
jtearing to demand it, the Governor has taken upon himself the re- 
sponsibility of furnishing you with those means of defence. To 
your sound discretion lie commits tliat public property. 
Very respectfully, 

your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO JOSEPH ENGLE. 



Hareisburg, 3£a]j 15, 1813. 
To Joseph Engle, Esq. : 

Sir : Tiiis day, by direction of the Governor, tliree hundred and 
fifty stand of arms and tliree hundred cartouch-boxes were sent, by 
a wagon, to be delivered at Chester county, of Delaware. As the 
Brigade Inspector lives some distance from Chester, it was thought 
advisable to send the muskets, &c., to your care. You will please 
to take charge of them until the Brigade Inspector arrives at Ches- 
ter. The wagoner will want a receipt from you for the safe deliv- 
ery of the articles, as a voucher for him to get compensation for his 
services. I have written to the Brigade Inspector, informing him 
that tlie muskets and cartouch-boxes are forwarded to your care. 
Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Sec7-etary. 
P. S. — After loading the three hundred and fifty muskets, it was 
found tlie wagon would not contain more than three hundred boxes. 
It was thought the deficit of boxes would not be so material as that 
of muskets.

N. B. BOILEAU TO JOHN BINNS. 

Harrisburg, May 19, 1813. 
To Mr. John Bixns : 

Dear Sir : I herewith enclose bond to be executed by Messrs. 
Worrell and Forsyth, with their sureties. There is a blank for their 
names, also some blanks for dates, which you will have filled. You 
will also, before the bond is executed, attach it to the plan descrip- 
tion in your possession, so that the subscribing witnesses cari attest 
that it was so attached at the time of signing. After the bond is 
executed, you will please to forward it, with the papers attached, to 
this office, giving the undertakers an opportunity of first taking a 
copy thereof. The following you will have endorsed on the paper 
containing a particular description of the arsenal, and have the un- 
dertakers' signatures thereto, viz: "We, the subscribers, do agree 
to erect a State arsenal on the lot on which the old one now stands, 
in conformity to the foregoing description and plan, for the sum of 
fourteen tliousand two hundred and four dollars, and to take the 
materials contained in the old arsenal, at the rate of three hundred 
dollars, in part of the aforesaid sum of fourteen thousand two hun- 
dred and four, and to complete the said arsenal, with all things 
thereunto pertaining, within six months from the date tliereof." 

Witness our hands this . . day of , A. D. 1S13. 

Witness present at signing. 

The law requires the Governor to take security for the failhfuU 
performance of the contract. None have been named by]Mi'ssrs. 
Worrell & Forsyth. It is presumed, however, that they will offer 
such only as the Governor would approve. 

Yery respectfully.

Harrisburg, May 18, 1813. 
To Gen. David Mead : 

Sir : That you have, under the act of Assembly authorizing you so 
to do, ordered on service two companies of the militia of your divi- 
sion, for the protection of the lake shore, the town of Erie, and the 
public property there, until the arrival of the troops under the com- 
mand of Col. Reese Hill, shall have rendered unnecessary the longer

service of those companies, has my full and entire appi-obation. 
Not so tlie men designated for the service, wlio, at a time of immi- l|| 
nent danger refused obedience to your orders. I cannot in idea 
])receive the circumstances tliat would warrant such palpable in- 
subordination. If connived at, it will prove destructive to the ser- 
vice, and as shamefully disreputable to the militia of Pennsylvania, 
as did the conduct of some volunteers at Buffalo, in the >tate of 
Xew York. I have no directions to give. The law directs the 
course to be pursued in this case. I trust its provisions applied to 
those outrageously refractory men will be an example such as shall 
deter from similar acts of open hostility to the lawful and regular 
orders of the Government. 

I am, with much respect, 

Your obedient servant, 

SIMON SNYDER. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO GEN. R. WHARTON. 



Harrisburg, Ifay 21, 1813. 
To Gen. R. Wharton, Philadelphia: 

Sill : I received yours of the 17t!i instant yesterday. Some ex- 
pressions in it prompted me to review what I have written to you 
under date of the 8th, in which I can discover no insinuations im- 
peaching yonr respeclahiliti/ T and I am conscious none were intended. 
But the ref'pectnbilHy of your informant, and the purity and disin- 
terestedness of his motives has been strongly impeached, not only 
by letters before me at tiie time I wrote, but by a considerable num- 
ber received since from men whose character and respectability 
would not suffer by a comparison with Col. Hargesheimer's, or per- 
haps any man's in the city, and by men, too, who live in the imme- 
diate neighborhood of the magazine, who, no doubt, feel as much 
solicitude for their own personal safety as he does. You stated in 
your former letter that you had " requested him to get their (those 
who he said were much alarmed) declarations in writing, wliich he 
promised to do, but has not yet performed." Hence may it not be 
inferred tliat his alarms are feigned, or the effects of a disordered 
imagination. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



WAR OF 1812-14. 645 

N. B. BOILEAU TO FREDERICK FOERING. 



Harrisburg, May 22, 1813. 
To Frederick Foering, Deputy Quarter-master General: 

Sir : Yours of the 19th I received yesterday, not being instructed 
to answer you in every particular, I have forwarded your letter to 
the Governor, now at Selinsgrove. Immediately on receiving his di- 
rections, I shall write you again. In the meantime I can answer you 
in part. When the articles you contracted for are furnished, and 
the repairs of arms, tents, <!fcc., are done, you will forward to me the 
several accounts certifying that you had received the articles speci- 
fied, tliat you had employed such persons to do such repairs, and the 
charges reasonable, on each of their accounts an order for me to re- 
ceive for them the amount from the State Treasurer. I will then 
inclose to you a check sufficient to cover the whole expense, to en- 
able you to discharge them. The tents which you were instructed 
to get repaired and to purchase, and the other munitions of war 
were designed to supply such of the militia as were called into the 
State service, and not those called in the service of the United 
States, unless in such cases where they could not get a supply from 
the United States stores. 

With regard to those who have furnished tliemselves with equip- 
ments, I have to remark, that it was manifestly the intention of the 
law, that tiie arms and accouterments purchased by individuals 
was not merely for parade, but to be used when called in actual ser- 
vice. If, however, lost in such service, without the fault of t'ae own- 
ers, it would be a just and equitable item of account against this 
State or the United States, and no doubt allowed. The law pro- 
vides expressly for the payment of horses belonging to cavalry, if 
lost in the service, and I do not perceive any reason to discriminate 
between the loss of a horse and a cartouch-box. The worth of the 
two articles certainly differ, but perhaps not more than the loosers, 
as it might regard their abilities to bear it. 
Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

K. B. BOILEAU.

Harrisbukg, Hay 28, 1813. 
To Col. William Duane : 

Sir : The boxes containing tlie hand-books for Infantry and Rifle- 
men have been received. I informed the gentleman who spoke to 
me on the subject of inserting the plates that were left out that the 
person wlioni he might employ to insert them could have access to 
the liooks at any time, for that purpose. He has not yet done it, 
nor do I know tiie person employed. 

The same act directing the purchase of two thousand copies for 
the use of the Infantry, also designates what officers shall be supplied 
with them. On examination, we find thei-e will be a deficit of about 
sixty. I have, therefore, to request that you would send the num- 
ber by the first conveyance. Your account for which, togetiier with 
that for those already furnished, will be paid whenever exhibited to 
the accountant department by any person you authorize to receive 
the same. 

I am, sir, your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU.

Harrisburg, May 29, 1813. 
To Col. William Duane : 

Sii; : I send you enclosed a check for $2,362 50, for which I have 
given the State Treasurer my receipt ; for that amount the entry is 
made in the Treasury books. On the receipt of the enclosed check, 
you will please to send me another receipt, corresponding in date 
and amount with the check. I will then return to you the former 
receipt ; in tlie meantime it must remain in the hands of the Treas- 
urer. The foregoing circumstances arise out of a mistake on my 
part or yours. The law authorizes the purchase of not more than 
one hundred hand-l)ooks for riflemen, the surplus I must return to 
you. Please to turn to my letter and see if the mistake was mine. 
If so, the books will be returned at my expense. On counting the 
•books carefully, it appears that we have received one hundred and 
ninety-nine copies of the hand-book for riflemen. Perhaps one copy 



WAR OF 1812-14. 647 

may have been put among those for infantry. We will examine and 
count them as we have leisure.

JAMES TRIMBLE TO ROBERT WILLIAMS. 



Harrisburg, July 14, 1S13. 

To Robert Williams, Esq., Adjutant General of the Militia of 
the State of North Carolina, at Raleigh: 
Sir : Your letter of the 30th ult., addressed to the Adjutant Gen- 
eral of the Militia of Pennsylvania, came to hand yesterday. That 
office has recently become vacant by the death of General Reed, who 
held it about three years. The vacancy not being filled, I undertake 
to answer your letter by sending you, herewith enclosed, an extract 
from our militia law of 1S07, now in operation, and a copy of a sup- 
plement thereto, passed in the last session of our General Assembly, 
fixing the salary and emoluments of the Adjutant General, and pre- 
scribing his duties. This information, I hope, will answer fully the 
object you have in view. 

I am, respectfully, sir. 

Your most obedient servant, 

JAMES TRIMBLE. 



GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO COL. JOHN PHILLIPS. 

Selins Grove, July 8, 1813. 
To Col. John Phillips : 

Sir : The letter you did me the honor to write, under date of the 
15th June last, I received on the 6th instant at this place, via Har- 
risburg. That no provision has been made for paying the Pennsyl- 
vania militia, now in service of the Union at Erie, is matter of much 
surprise to me, and I have to regret that the remissness of those 
whose duty it certainly was to make an arrangement so essential to 
the service, cannot be remedied by any constituted State authority. 
It is not competent under any existing law for the executive to ad- 
vance money out of the Commonwealth's treasury to pay troops in 
the United States service. The several laws of last session relative 



(;4s WAR OF 1812-14. 

to military subjects, have no prospective provision. Legislative 
bounty is extended to those of our militia then in service under Gen. 
Harrison, consisting of drafts and volunteer companies who had 
made a tender of their services to the President. 

On another point made in your letter, I must remark that it can- 
not have been the intention of the Legislature that the executive 
should notify of the State donation the individual commandants of 
the latter description of troops, because they are not officially known 
to tiie executive department of the State. Gen. Harrison was fur- 
nished with official copies of the laws passed for the relief and ben- 
etit of tiie Pennsylvania troops of both descriptions under his com- 
mand, for tlie purpose of promulgation — so was Gen. Crooks. On 
tiie latter it was specially enjoined to procure pay-rolls, as well of 
those men that served six months as of those that served for an ad- 
ditional period of time. Notwitlistanding this injunction and the 
solicitude of the government to have those documents which he 
must have inferred from the circumstances of duplicates being for- 
warded to him, yet, from Gen. Crooks, there was not received any 
acknowledgement of the receipt by him of these communications at 
the time I left Harrisburg. 

Please to communicate to Col. Rees Hill and Quarter-master Gen- 
eral Wilson Smith, (who have both written to me on the same sub- 
ject with yourself,) the contents of this letter, and assure them both 
of my sincere regard, confidence, and esteem, and for yourself ac. 
cept similar assurances. 

SIMON SNYDER. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO COL. C. J. HUTTER. 

ILVRRISIJURG, July 23, 1813. 
To Col. C. J. HuTTER, Easton : 

Sir: To your letter to the Governor, of the 10th inst., I am in- 
structed to give you the following answer : The arms manufactured 
by Mr. Henry have been, by direction of tlie Governor, removed to 
this place ; and a number sufficient to supply the infantry company 
you mention will be delivered here, to any agent that the officers of 
tiie company may authorize to receive them, upon condition that 
the said officers give bond for their re-delivery, whenever called for 
by the proper authority, in as good repair as when they received 
them. 

The agent may make his own selection out of the muskets that 
are liere, of which there are more than sufficient that are in good 
repair, except that they may need a little cleaning and oiling. With 



WAR OF 1812-14. 649 

respect to repairing those fifty stand you mention, if there are not 
regimental funds adequate to the expense of repairing them, tliey 
must remain as they are until further orders from the Governor. 
Should the officers think proper to apply for arms under the above 
conditions, it is proper to state that a musket is estimated at eleven 
dollars. The penalty in the bond double the arnount. Tiie bond, 
therefore, if sent, will be drawn agreeably to the above estimate. 
Very respectfully, 

Your obedient servant, 

X. B BOILEAU. 



K. B. BOILEAU TO JOHN SMITH. 



Harkisburg, July 24, 1813. 

To John Smith, Esq., Marshal, Pennsylvania district: 

Sir : By direction of the Governor, I wrote to you on the 11th of 
May last, respecting the collection of fines imposed on delinquents, 
for non-performance of their tour of militia duty. 

I presume your great press of business has prevented you from 
answering my letter. As I have frequently been applied to by Bri- 
gade Inspectors for instructions with regard to collecting those fines, 
and declined answering their enquiries until I heard from you, will 
you permit me to request your attention to the subject, and write as 
early as time and opportunity will permit. 
Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO FREDERICK FOERIXG. 



Harrisburg, July 26, 1813. 

To Frederick Foering, Esq., Deputy Quarter-master General: 

Sir : Having been absent from the seat of government, I did not 
get j'ours of the 2d inst., until Friday last. You wiU accept this as 
an apology for my not acknowledging the receipt of your letter 
earlier. I now enclose you a check in favor of Mr. Calderwood for 
$49 12, and one in favor of Lewis Ghriskey, or bearer, for $95 09. As 
you have advanced him the money, you can draw the money on his 



650 WAR OF 1812-14. 

clieok. For this last check T was obliged to give my own respons- 
ible receipt, as I had no order from Ghriskey to draw the money. 
Voii will, therefore, please to get his receipt, a form of which I will 
subjoin. 

Tiie account of Calderwood for storing arms, is suspended until 
he forwards a certificate from Clement Biddle, stating the times 
when the arms were delivered to him. He will also send me an order 
to receive tiie amount. In answer to your last inquiry, I state tiiat 
those persons wliom you may have employed to repair arms will 
please to forward their accounts, with an order for me to receive 
from the State Treasurer the amount of their bills. Those from 
wlioni you may purchase articles for the use of the State, or wiio 
have been employed to make or repair tents, will forward their ac- 
counts to me, and if they have sufficient confidence in me, may at 
the same time send me a receipt for the amount of tlieir bill, a copy 
of wliicli receipts, I will also subjoin, or they may furnish me with 
their bills in tiie first instance, and I will send tlie amount to you, 
you taking tlieir receipts at the time of payment. 
Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant,

N. B. BOILEAU TO WILSON SMITH. 



Harkisburg, August 2, 1813. 
To Wilson Smith, Quarter-master General: 

Sir : Yours of the 13th ult. I recently received. I regret that I 
cannot send you the money you wanted immediately, to enable you 
to defray certain expenses that liave been incurred. Gen. Mead in- 
formed tlie Governor that he liad made a call on tlie militia to march 
for tlie defence of Erie, until Col. Hill's detachment should arrive, 
and that they had refused to obey his orders. It would, however, 
appear, from your letter, tliat, subsequently, a number did marcli to 
Erie for its defence. It will be necessary for Gen. Mead to inform 
the Governor wiiat number of men did march by his order, and how 
long tliey served. It will also be necessary to forward muster and 
pay-rolls. These you can obtain from the officer who commanded 
the detachment, if you have them not already in your possession. 
When these documents are furnished, arrangements will be made, 
with the least possible delay, to discharge the expenses incurred.

Harrisburg, August 7, 1813.

Sir : Your letter to the Governor, containing a statement of your 
proceedings, relative to the public property at Erie, I forwarded to 
the Governor. In answer to your letter, I give you the following 
extract from his letter to me : " Mr. Farrelly I think has pursued a 
correct course. As he has given notice to the Attorney General of 
what is done, and asked his opinion, it will be useless to say more 
to him in answer than to commend his vigilance, &c. Please to do 
this for me." 

I received a communication from Gen. Mead to the Governor, a 
few days since, with regard to the call of the militia for the defence 
of Erie. I immediately forwarded the papers to the Governor, and 
expect daily to see him here, and to receive instructions from him 
relative to the subject, which will be promptly attended to. 
Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant,

sylvania at Pittsburgh, for $700, which sum you are instructed to ap- 
propriate in defraying of the expenses incurred by the marching of 
the militia to Erie for the defence of that place, under orders of 
Gen. Mead. The expenses that have and may occur, after their ar- 
rival at that place, will be paid by Wilson Smith, Quarter-master 
General, who will be furnished with the means for that purpose. I 
have sub-joined a copy of a receipt, which you will please forward 
to me immediately after you shall have received the check.

WILLIAM CLARK TO X. B. BOILEAU. 



Meadville, August 27, 1813. 
N. B. Boileau, Secretary: 

Sir : Yours of the 10th inst., inclosing a check on the Branch 
Bank of Pennsylvania, in Pittsburgh, for $700, came to my hand 
yesterday, a receipt for which is herewith inclosed. The number of 
troops which rendezvoused ;at Erie, in pursuance of the orders of 
Maj. Gen. Mead, as appears from proi)er muster-rolls, amounts to 
upwards of sixteen hundred, which will average six rations per man 
on their marcli to Erie, provided they are allowed for two days' ra- 
tions before marching, and for which they demand i)ayment of me. 
The law says pay two days before marching; but is silent as to ra- 
tions. Sixteen hundred men under rations for six days will amount 
to nine thousand six hundred rations, which, at seventeen cents per 
ration, (the lowest a ration could be procured for, beside the trouble 
of issuing,) amounts to $1,300, to this must be added bills for ferri- 
age, fuel for troops, &c., on their march to Erie. From this state- 
ment yon will see the additional sum necessary. The United States 
Contractor furnished many of the troops with back rations due them 
on their march, which, from the manner of their march, was im- 
practicable for me to furnisli. For these rations I have to pay sev- 
enteen cents per ration. All money furnished me for these expenses 
shall be duly accounted for as soon as I am enabled to lift the proper 
vouchers. 

I am, most respectfully, your obedient,

In pursuance of the above authority, I have issued to the First

Sir : In consequence of the seeming collision, at least between 
the laws of this Commonwealth and those of the United States, on 
the subject of collecting fines incurred for non-performance of tours 
of militia duty, considerable difficulties liave occurred whether the 
Marshal or the Brigade Inspectors ought to collect them, and, of 
course, whether this money shall go into the Treasury of this State 
or that of the United States. Shall I ask the favor' of you to ex- 
amine the subject and give me your opinion in order to enable me 
to give specific instructions to the several Brigade Inspectors who 
have applied to me for that purpose. I will be much obliged to your 
early attention to the subject.

Sir : The petition to the Governor signed by you and a number 
of tlie odicers of tlie One Hundred and Eighth regiment, has been 
received. 

In consequence of a collision between the laws of this State and 
those of the United States, relative to tlie collection of fines for non- 
perforlnance of tours of militia duty, considerable embarrassments 
have arisen. The Marshal of tiie United States, for the Tennsyl- 
vania district, conceived it to be his duty to collect those fines. He 
has, however, submitted the question to Mr. Dallas, the district 
Attorney Geiu^ral of the United States, for his opinion, and prom- 
ised to furnish a copy of it when obtained. I have also asked the 
Attorney General, Mr. Ingersoll. for liis opinion on the Si}.me subject. 
Wlien those opinions are received, I shall lay them before the Gov- 
ernor, and then, without delay, give such instructions to the proper 
Brigade Inspectors as the Governor may direct. Tlie Governor is 
equally aware, with yourselves, of the evils that would result if de- 
linquents were permitted to escape with impunity. You will please 
to communicate the contents of this letter to the gentlemen who 
signed the petition.

thereof.

exclusively to defray the expenses incurred in furnishing tlie mili- 
tia, on their march to Erie, with sustenance, under the call of Gen- 
eral Meade. Their expenses while there and returning home are to 
be paid through anotlier channel. Altliough tiiey are allowed pay 
for two days previously to tlieir marching, no rations are allowed. 
You will understand, also, that the call made by Colonel Wallace 
not being aucliorized by law, any expenses incurred under that call 
cannot be paid without a special act for that purpose. 
Vei-y respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant,

N. B. BOILEAU TO WILSON SMITH. 



Harrisburg, September 20, 1813. 
To Wilson Smith, Esq., (Quarter-Master General: 

Sir : Yours of the 31st ult., has been received. You will proceed 
to pay, as far as you have money in your hands, for the rations fur- 
nished by the contractor to the militia called out by General Meade, 
while they were at Erie, at the rate agreed on, say seventeen cents 
per ration. You will ascertain whether or not the rations furnished 
were complete. Those men who were called out by Colonel Wal- 
lace, and who were included in the call of General Meade, and who 
were supplied with rations after the call of General Meade, their 
rations, for that time, you are authorized to allow ; but as Colonel 
Wallace's call was not authorized by law, any expenses incurred 
under Colonel Wallace's call only cannot be paid without a special 
act of the Legislature for that purpose. 

It lias been intimated by Major Clark that the mei!i claim two 
days' rations prior to the day of marching, this cannot be allowed. 
This, however, is a matter between Mr. Clark, themselves, and the 
accounting officers, in which you have no direct concern. 



g56 WAR OF 1812-14. 

With ipfjard to the rations for the men on their return home, for 
whicli JklrrForster commuted, and gave them fourteen cents, I have 
to observe that you are autlit)rized to refund him the money which 
he paid, with interest, if lie demands it. It must be presumed it 
was patriotism that induced Mr. Forster to advance the money, and 
not any desire to speculation. It cannot be supposed that he in- 
tended to charge the Commonwealth seventeen cents for rations 
which actually cost him but fourteen cents. If he does insist on 
sucli charge, I doubt the allowance of the accounting officers. As 
soon as you have ascertained, as near as may be, the additional sum 
necessary for you to settle tlie accounts, and give me information, 
the necessary arrangements will be made for that purpose. 
Very respectfully. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



JAMES TRIMBLE TO WILLIAM DUNCAN. 



Secretary's Office, 
Harrisburg, October 5, 1818. 

To William Duncan, Esq., Adjutant (feneral, Pennsylvania Mi- 
litia : 

Dear Sir : Your letter of the 25th ult., covering a bond in five 
thousand dollars, with John Shinn, Jr., and Amos Addis, as sure- 
ties, for your faithful discharge of the duties of the office of Adju- 
tant General of the Militia of this State, has been received, but has 
not yet been submitted for the Governor's approbation, he being at 
present at Selinsgrove. Immediately on his return I will hand it 
to him, and have no doubt of his approving of it, as it appears to 
me to be suthciently formal. 

1 have to intimate to you the Governor's wish, that you would, 
as soon as you conveniently can, repair to General Reed's late resi- 
dence, at Millerstown, in Adams county, or at Greensburg, in 
Westmoreland county, and procure any papers that maybe found 
belonging to the Adjutant General's Department. John Reed, Esq., 
attorney-at-law, residing at the latter place, can give information 
respecting the papers of the said department, as tlie settlement of 
his late father's affairs devolves on him. Upon your arrival here 
tlie reports and papers recently from Brigade Inspectors into this 



WAR OF 1812-14. 657 

office, but appertaining to your office, will be delivered over to you, 
some of which may require immediate attention. 
I am, respectfully, 

Your friend and obedient servant, 

JAMES TRIMBLE, 
Deputy Secretary. 



JAMES TRIMBLE TO JACOB SAYLOR. 



Secretary's Office, Harrisburg, October 5, 1813. 

To Jacob Saylor, Brigadier General, First Brigade, Fourteenth 

Division : 

Sir: Y'our letter of the 23d ult., has been received, and in the 
absence of Mr. Boileau, I am directed to inform you that the Gov- 
ernor would, with much pleasure, order commissions to be issued to 
the officers of so patriotic a company of volunteers as the one men- 
tioned in your letter ; but tliat it does not appear to what battalion 
and regiment of the brigade the company is attached, nor whether 
the officers and men are in complete uniform, &c., either according 
to the provisions of the third section of the original Militia law 
passed 9th April, 1807, or the second section of the supplemental 
law passed 26th March, 1808, all which should be certified by the 
Brigade Inspector, who is also required by law to make a return of 
tlie election of officers. The number of men associated, being fifty- 
six, appears to be sufficient, and whenever it is certified that the 
other requisites of the law are complied with, the commissions will 
will be issued without delay. 

I am, sir, very respectfully. 

Your friend and obedient servant,

To John Reed, Esq., Greenshurg: 

Sii: : At the instance of Mr. AVilliam Duncan, the present Adju- 
tant General, I liave to request you to forward to this office, all the 
books and papers belonging to the office of Adjutant General, left 
in your possession at the decease of your father, (whose death I 
most sincerely regret, both as a personal friend, and valuable citi- 
zen.) If you think proper to furnish me with a memorandum of 
tlie books and papers forwarded, I will, on comparing it witli those 
received, and finding it correspond witli those received, forward to 
you a receipt for tlie same from Mr. Duncan. You will enclose them 
in a box if they are voluminous, and direct it to me at this place. 
JSend it by the stage, or such other conveyance as you may think 
proper, and I will defray the expense. Permit me to ask your early 
attention to the subject. 

Very respectfully, &c., 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



GENERAL ORDERS. 



Harrisburg, October 29, 181.3. 
WiLijAM Di'XCAN, Acljutant Generalofthe Militia of Pennsylvania: 
Whilst it affords the Commander-in-Chief high gratification to say 
to those of tlie militia of Pennsylvania who performed the service 
required in the field, against a malignant foe, deserve well of their 
country a respect for the military reputation of the militia com- 
mands, on tlie otlier hand a strict enforcement of the laws making 
penal a refusal to march, or punishing desertion. Under these im- 
pressions I do order that you immediately direct the several Brigade 
Inspectors from whose brigades as w^ell volunteers as drafted militia 
w^ere ordered for tlie service of the United States, agreeably to the 
several requisitions from those who administer that government 
under the several general orders by the Commander-in-Chief, dated 
respectively of May 12, 1812, August 25, 1812, September 5, 1812, and 
March 20, 1813, and of April 5, 1813, that they severally and respect- 
ively institute prosecutions against, as well those of the militia who 
were delinquent in not marching as against those who, after having 
marcelled, deserted the service. And that the respective presiding 



WAR OF 1812-14. 659 

oflficers of courts-martial certify and report witliout delay the fines 
assessed and on wliom, to the martial of the district of Pennsylvania. 
A reference by you to the laws of the United States prescribing the 
duty to be performed by those officers and by courts-martial, may 
very much facilitate inquiry, and result in an early termination of 
this imnortant service.

If. B. BOILEAU TO GEN. WILLIAM DUNCAN. 



Harrisburg, October 30, 1813. 
To Gen. William Duncan : 

Sir : I send you enclosed a general order from the Governor, 
which you will have executed as promptly as practicable. They 
have been delayed in consequence of a difficulty arising as to the 
mode of procedure, whether the penalties incurred by delinquents 
should be collected under the State or United States. The Attor- 
ney General is of opinion they must be collected under tliose of V.ie 
latter, in which the Governor concurs. I send you a list of the 
names of the Bi-igade Inspectors from whose brigade volunl -ers 
and drafts were ordered into service. It will perhaps be well for 
you to direct their attention to the fifth and sixth sections of the act 
of Congress passed 28tli February, 1795, as the rule of proceedings. 
In adverting to subsequent acts of Congress, on the subject of militia, 
you find that no alternation has been made in the provisions contained 
in the said sections. Tlie term of service, however, has been 
changed from three to six months, a circumstance, also, which the 
officers holding the court-martial should be apprised of. I have 
written to the son of the late General Reed, to forward to this 
office all the papers in liis possession belonging to the xldjutant 
General's office. I have not yet received them. The Governor has 
returned to the seat of government, and will remain here for some 
months. I will inform you when I receive the papers from Mr. 
Reed. 

Very respectfully. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 

P. S. — By examining the several general orders issued by tlie 
Governor, which I presume you have, you will perceive from what 



660 



AVAR OF 1812-14. 



brifrafles tlie draft or volunteers were ordered into service. It will 
perliups be advisable for you to remind the Brisj^ade liisi)ectors, that 
tliuse who were delinquent among those called into tlie service of the 
United States, are to be tried by court-martial, agreeably to the laws 
of the United States, and that those called into the service of this 
State oidy, are to be proceeded against under the State laws. I con- 
ceive that those volunteers who so shamefully deserted and threw 
down their arms at Black Rock ought in a particular manner to be 
brought before court-martial. 



X. B. BOILEAU TO WILLIAM FOSTER. 



Harrisburg, October 30, 1813. 

To Mr. William Foster : 

Sir : Yours of the 7th inst., has been received, in answer to which 
I have to state tiiat previously to my writing to the Quarter-master 
General the letter to which you allude, I consulted the accounting 
officers, whose province it is to settle all public accounts. From 
the result of that consultation arose the doubts I expressed of their 
willingness to allow certain items of charge mentioned in my let- 
ter. Y'^ur letter of the 7th I also submitted to them. On consid- 
eration, they appear to wave objections to that part of the account 
relative to comnuitation with the men for rations on their march 
home. I would here remark that the conduct of Maj. Clark on a 
similar occasion, was unknown to this or the accountant depart- 
ment, until communicated by you, and the accountant officers may 
still think proper to revive the settlement, with regard to furnish- 
ing rations to the militia called by Col. Wallace, prior to the order 
of Gen. Mead. They are unanimously of the opinion those accounts 
are inadmissible, although sanctioned by Gen. Mead, inasmuch as 
he had no legal authority to sanction an illegal assumption of power, 
by an inferior officer. I presume, therefore, those accounts must be 
submitted to the Legislature, which, on consideration of the cir- 
cumstance of the case, will probably direct their adjustment. You 
can lay the whole case before them without the necessity of your 
personal attendance. The mode, however, of your application must 
rest in your own discretion. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary.

Harrisburg, N'ovemher 2, 1813. 
To James Wilson, Esq., of Millerstown, Adams county: 

Sir : Joliii Reed, Esq., of Greensburgh, son of the late Adjutant 
General Reed, by a letter dated the 26th ult., informs Mr. Boileau, 
the Secretary of tlie Commonwealth, that the books and papers be- 
longing to the office of the Adjutant General, remain in your custody, 
and that you have been desired to deliver them over to the order of 
whoever might be appointed to tliat office. Gen. William Duncan, 
of Philadelphia, has been lately appointed and commissioned Ad- 
jutant General, and is expected to be here in a short time. Mr. 
Boileau liaving gone this morning to Lancaster, I am directed by 
the Governor to request tliat you will be pleased, with as little de- 
lay as possible, to forward them in a box or trunii directed to me at 
this place, and I will defray the expense. Send them by stage or 
such other safe conveyance as you may think i>roper. As soon as 
they arrive, the receipt of them shall be acknowledged. 
I am, respectfully, 

Your friend and obedient servant, 

JAMES TRIMBLE, 
Deputy iSecretary. 



JAMES TRIMBLE TO GEN. WILLIAM DUNCAN. 



Harrisburg, N'ovemher 8, 1813. 

To Gen. William Duncan, Philadelphia: 

Dear Sir : I acknowledge the receipt of your letter to Mr. Boi- 
leau, of the 4th instant, and now subjoin an abstract from our books, 
showing you tlie dates of the Governor's general orders for calling 
out the militia of this State, under the requisition of the President 
of the United States, and the brigades and divisions from which 
the militia was drawn, with the period of service. I am directed 
by the Governor to inform you that two requisitions were made to 
him, one by the Secretary at War, the other by General Dearborn, 
both dated the same day, to wit : the 13th day of August, 1812, and 
both requiring the detaching, for the service of the United States, 
of two thousand men, to rendezvous somewhere in the western part 
of the State, and to march to Buffalo, in the State of New York. 
The former making the requisition under the act of 1812, and the 
latter under the act of 1795. In neither of the requisitions was 



662 



WAR OF 1812-14. 



there a reference to the other, it was lienee conjectured that one 
detachment only was desired ; under this impression the Governor 
ordered the volunteers into service, who elected, at Meadville, Gen- 
eral Tanneiiill. The Governor wrote to both the Secretary at War 
and (General Dearborn for an explanation of the apparent enigma, 
particularly requesting to be informed as respected the term of ser- 
vice, the law of 1795 requiring a tour of three months, and that of 
1S12 a tour of six months. From General Dearborn no answer was 
obtained ; the Secretary at War did write, on the 1st of September, 
but not one word in explanation, he merely said that he found it 
necessary so far to vary tiie orders issued by him on the 13th of Au- 
gust, as that the brigade ordered by him into service, should join 
General Harrison's army, then assembling in the State of Oiiio. 
The fact that General Taunehill procured, for himself and his staff, 
a furlough, for a term extending to the day on which a six months' 
tour ended, it would seem as proof that the requisition in both cases 
was for a term of six months. 

JAMES TRIMBLE, 
Deputy Secretary. 



GOV. SIMON SXYDER TO COL. JOHN PHILLIPS. 



Harrisburg, November 12, 1813. 

To Col. John Phillips : 

Silt : Upon being certified that the detachment of the militia or- 
dered into service byMaj. Gen. Mead, for the protection of the 
United States flotilla, then in the harbor of Erie, was discharged, 
I should inuned lately Iiave appointed a paymaster for that detach- 
ment, but wanting data where from an estimate of the sum requi- 
site could be made, and having a wish, also, to know how much of 
the money already placed to your credit at the Branch Bank at 
Pittsburgh, for the payment of other ti'oops after payment, might 
remain in your hands. I delayed the appointment for the obvious 
reason of not founding a draft or public moneys on a contingency. 
Yoiu- letter of tiie 12th October, hiforming that ten or eleven thou- 
sand dollars would probably remain in your hands. If it had been 
accompanied by muster and pay-rolls of Gen. Mead's detachment, 
would liave removed all ditticulty. Tliese documents I anxiously 
looked for from day to day, presuming the obvious necessity of tliem 
would induce Gen. Mead to have them forwarded. I relied with 
the more certainty on their receipt, under a belief that the purport 
as well of your letter of the 12th October, as that the letter itself 



WAR OF 1S12-14. 663 

grew out of an intimation from the Executive. To prevent a longer 
delay and consequent dissatisfaction on the part of tlie troops who 
particularly yielded obedience to the orders of Gen. Mead, under 
circumstances of extreme hardship, 1 am induced to inclose a com- 
mission constituting you paymaster of tliat detachment. For this 
service you will proceed to expend the money that may remain in 
your hands, Iiaving first procured the necessary muster and pay-rolls. 
But it is to be distinctly understood that you discriminate between 
those troops who were ordered into service by Col. Wallace, and tliose 
subsequently ordered by Gen. Mead, confining your official duty to 
the latter only. Such further sum of money as shall be equal to a 
payment in full of the detachment shall be forwarded so soon as the 
requisite data to form an estimate shall have been forwarded. 

Very respectfully your friend, 

SIMOi^ SNYDER. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO WILLIAM McCLELLAND. 



Harrisbtjrg, Decemher 2, 1813. 
To William McClelland, Esq. : 

Sir : Your letter to Mr. Findlay, under date of 27tli November, 
is now before me. Tlie difficulties which occurred respecting the 
collection of militia fines early occurred to the Governor. He wrote 
to a member of Congress on the subject, at Washington, during the 
last winter session, who had a conversation on the business with 
tiie President ; the result of which, however, was by no means satis- 
factory. Some time in the month of April last, the Governor was 
furnished with a copy of a letter from the Marshal of the district, 
written to the Adjutant General, in which he states that he con- 
ceived it to be his duty to collect the fines imposed on delinquents, 
and directs that the result of Courts-Martial, held for the punisli- 
raent of delinquents, should be reported to him or his deputies. On 
the 11th of May, I wrote, by the Governor's direction, to the Mar- 
siial for the purpose of having an understanding on the subject. In 
answer to which the Marslial stated that he liad submitted the case 
to the District Attorney, Mr. Dallas, and that he would furnish a 
copy of his opinion when received. h\ the meantime, I, by direction 
of the Governor, wrote to Mr. Ingersoll, the Attorney General, on 
the same subject. A copy of the opinion of Mr. Dallas, and tiie 
opinion of Mr. Ingersoll, were not received until October, although 
I had a second time written to the Marshal, pressing him on tiie 
subject. The Governor, having examined those opinions, and ex- 



ti04 WAR OF 1812-14. 

ainiiied the laws of Congress, thought proper to issue general orders 
to tlie Adjutant General, a copy of which you have seen. It appears 
to the Governor tliat, inasmuch as the officer of the United States 
is to collect the lines, under tlie laws of the United .States, if any 
difliculty arises under those laws, the officer of the United States 
should explain them. I have written to the Marshal on the subject ^ 
submitted your queries to him, and requested him to write to you 
on tlie business. 1 suljjoin an extract from the opinion of Mr. Dal- 
las : "As there seems, however, to have been some misunderstand- 
ing of the law, and certain militia fines, certified to the State officers, 
have been collected under tlie State laws, 1 advise the Marshal to 
to consider those officers as acting in the capacity of liis deputies in 
past cases ; and to enter into such arrangement with, as shall enable 
him to receive and pay the money collected into the treasury, as the 
law directs." I also gave the Marshal a similar extract of Mr. Dal- 
las" opinion. 

Very respectfully, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



X. B. BOILEAU TO JOHN SMITH. 



Harrisburg, December 2, 1813. 

To .John Smith, Esq., Marshal Philadelphia District: 

Sir : The apparent collision between the United States and the 
State laws, their ambiguity or w^ant of precision, occasion great 
embarrassment in the collecting of the fines imposed on delinquent 
militia men. It would appear to me that inasmuch as these fines 
are to be collected by an officer of the United States, it has pro- 
vince to direct the mode of procedure in levying them. 1 subjoined 
some queries sent to me by Mr. William McClelland, Brigade In- 
spector in Franklin county, for your solution, with a request tliat 
you would give him information as early as possible. As other 
Brigade Inspectors, no doubt feel equal difficulties, would it not be 
well to point out to each of them the proper mode of procedure. 
A list of those from whose brigades, militia have been called into 
service, 1 also send you. It appears from Mr. McClelland's letter 
that a part of the fines have been collected in his brigade, and one 
iiian imprisoned. It is likely that in other brigades, similar events 
haA'e occuiTed. As a part of Mr. Dallas's opinion seems to apply 



AVAR OF 1812-14. 665 

to the above cases, I send yon a copy of tliat part, lest you might 
perhaps not have preserved a copy of it. As there seems, however, 
to have been some misunderstanding of the law, and certain militia 
fines, certified to the .State officers, have been collected under the 
State laws, I advise the Marshal to consider those officers as acting 
in the capacity of his deputies, in past cases, and to enter into such 
arrangement with, as shall enable him to receive and to pay the 
money collected into the treasury, as the law directs. I have only 
to add a request that you would pay an early attention to tlie sub- 
ject, to prevent further difficulties in addition to those which arose 
from the long delay of Mr. Dallas's opinion. 

Very respectfully, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO JOHN ARMSTRONG. 



Harrisburg, January 10, 1814. 
To Hon. John Armstrong, Secretary of War: 

Sir : T received, by express, from Major General Meade, com- 
manding a division of Pennsylvania militia in the western part of 
this State, a communication containing intelligence of a nature 
warranting that officer, under a special provision of an act of the 
]^egislature, to order into service a portion of the militia of his com- 
mand, for the protection of tlie lake frontier, and the vessels of war 
and other public property at Erie, against a tln-eatened invasion by 
tlie enemy. 1 hasten to lay before the Executive of the Union copies 
of the papers upon which that officer has predicated the act he lias 
done, together with an extract of his letter. As these dociunents 
fully express the feeling and impressions of the people in that ex- 
posed country, 1 deem it but necessary to express my wish that such 
measures may be adoi)ted by the United States government as, 
added to efforts then making under the State authority, will attain 
the all-important service which the exigency of the country de- 
mand. I beg leave to suggest the necessity of a requisition for an- 
other portion of this State's quota of militia, as the most efficient, 
because, under the special provision above alluded to, the troops can 
be held in service only thirty days. That period may be extended 
by the Executive another month, but it is extremely desirable that 
this extension of service should be avoided, as the troops now or- 
dered on service by General Mead have been subject to many pri- 
vations, hardships, and distresses, because of the almost unremit- 
ted service which very many of them have rendered during the last 



666 



WAR OF 1812-14. 



eisliteen months. Most of the counties west of the Susquehanna, 
witli the exception of Cumberland, Toik, and Adams, have fur- 
nished the allotment of the quota reciuired of this State. To appor- 
tion as equally as possible amon<jf the people the burden of the war, 
and to prevent murmurings, it will be necessary that these harass- 
ed troops be relieved as soon as possible by militia who have hith- 
erto been excused by reason of their pfreat distance from the seat of 
war. Tiie time required to march troops from the eastern counties 
precludes the hope of etRcient service by a two months' tour, hence 
the expediency of a requisition for a six months' tour. If our hopes 
on this subject be realized, it will be desirable to know, whether at 
Pittsbursli, Carlisle, or elsewhere, the United States have a deposit 
of arms, camp equipage, blankets, and munitions of war, with which 
such a detachment of militia could be furnislied. In anticipation 
of tlie suggested requisition, I may probably order the volunteers 
and drafted militia of some counties near this place to be held in 
readiness to march at a short warning. Permit me to ask an early 
answer to this communication, and to add assurances of considera- 
tion and esteem. 

SIMON SXTDER. 



GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO GEN. DAVID MEAD. 



Harrisburg, January 10, 1814. 
To Maj. Gen. David Mead : 

Sir : The act you have done in calling forth, for the defence of 
Erie, a ])ortion of your division, growing as it appears, out of the 
exigencies of the lake frontier, is, it is presumed, the result of a dis- 
cretion, the exercise of which is vested in j'ou by a special act of the 
Legislature. The privations, hardships, and distresses consequent 
ni)on an almost unremitted service in the field, by a large portion of 
the militia conqwsiiig the First brigade of your division, would 
seem to dictate a dismissal of them as early as the safety of the 
country wih permit. The arrival at Erie of the detachment ordered 
into service from the Second brigade of your division, ought [cir- 
cumstances permitting,) to be tiie limit for the service of the first 
brigade. Measures will be taken for the pay and subsistence of the 
troops, and so soon as an answer is obtained from the Secretary at 
War, of whom 1 have requested the interposition of the United 
States government for the relief of the lake frontier, troops will Ije or- 
dered to relieve those you may retain in service, either under a requi- 
sition of the United states, which I have suggested to the Secretary 
at War, or, if that government should decline complying with my 



WAR OF 1812-14. 667 

request, under State authority. If the danger should not have 
ceased on this point, I solicit information as frequently as private 
opportunities and the mail offer, or by express, if circumstances re- 
quire dispatch. On the subject of retaining in service beyond thirty 
days, the detachment or any portion of it which you ordered from 
the Second brigade, you will be advised as soon as I shall have 
learned the determination of the President upon my communica- 
tion. 

Very respectfully. 

Your obedient servant, 

SIMON SNYDER. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO GEN. D. MEAD. 



Harrisburg, January 18, 1814. 

To Gen. D. Mead : 

Sir : Yours of the 8th instant was received last evening. In order 
that we may understand each other, it may be proper to quote a 
part of yours of 25th November last, as perhaps you may not have 
a copy. " At the time our fleet was ready to sail, the commodore 
informed me he was very deficient in men, but wished to make a 
cruise to Long Point, and requested me to use my influence to get 
him some men to assist in working the guns, and to be used as 
shooters or marines. In order to do this, I promised tluit every 
man who would volunteer for a cruise sliould be paid for his services 
as a militia man on his return. The necessary number, about one 
hundred men volunteered, and I borrowed $500 to pay them on their 
return, which was accordingly done." Myunderstandingof this part 
of your letter, which was that also of Mr. Bryan, was tliat tlie $500 
was a bounty of five dollars to each for volunteering his services for 
the cruise. If not, I could perceive no inducement held out to the 
men, because had they staid on shore they would have been entitled 
to their common pay as militia men. And it appears by your last 
letter that those men were discharged at the same time tliat the 
other men were who were on service by your orders. Nor did I im- 
agine that the $500 paid then included the whole of the time they 
were in the service of State. If this be the fact, the paymaster, 
Mr. Phillips, will not hesitate a moment in refunding the money to 
you on your exhibiting to him tlieir receipt for their pay. The law^ 
required a paymaster to be appointed, which was done. He is the 
proper to whom application is to be made to refund the pay you have 
advanced. If he does not, please to inform me, and the matter will 
be presented to the consideration of the Legislature without delay.

Or tli(^ Governor will direct Mr. Phillips to do it ; I conceive he has 
the jiower. Before I close this letter, permit rne to notice some parts 
of a letter from you to tlie Governor, under date of the 2d instant, 
in wliieli you state that I have written a letter not very resi)ectfully 
to you. Tliat you are hampered and calumniated by a private irre- 
sponsible influence. " If it be disrespectful or calumnious to state 
to Mr. Wallace, which I did in my letter to him, that his call of the 
militia, although sanctioned by you, was, in the opinion of the ac- 
countant ollicers, unauthorized by any existing law, then indeed, am 
I guilty of the charge. And the only apology I have to make is my 
total ignorance of the meaning of the terms ' disrespectful and caZ- 
«nin(/ ' with regard to prtraie irresj>o;)s/6i7iXy." Be assured I have 
no desire to shrink from responsibility either in my private or public 
capacity. And if you have been '■'hampered," it is in consequence 
of your having exercised a power which the accountant officers do 
not think was authorized by law, and, therefore, would not pay ex- 
penses that resulted from it. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU,

To .Joiix Young, Esq., Inspector of the First Brigade, Eleventh 
Division, Pennsylvania Militia: 
Sir : As the general order issued by the Governor, under date of 
29th October last, appears not to be distinctly understood, by at least 
some of the Brigade Inspectors, to embrace those who were ordered 
to the defence of Erie, under the command of Colonel Rees Hill, I 
am instructed to state explicitly to you, that those who refuse to 
march, under the general orders of the Governor, dated 31st March, 
1813, issued in pursuance of a requisition of the general govern- 
ment, dated the 20th of March, 1813, as well as those who deserted 
after marciiing, were, and are, intended to be embraced under the 
Governor's general orders, dated the 29th October, 1813, wiiich di- 
rect delin(iuents to be proceeded against, agreeably to the laws of 
the United States.

X. B. BOILEAU TO JOHN WILSON. 



Harrisburg, January 31, 1814. 
To John Wilson, Brigadier General : 

Sir : Your letter to the Governor, of the 26th inst., representing 
to him the necessity of a guard over British prisoners, and some 
public property in Fort Fayette, has been made the subject of a 
communication to the Secretary at War. On the United States 
government tlie object of your letter properly devolves. The act 
you have done may be warranted by circumstances, and, I doubt 
not, will be recognized by that government, but it is equally unau- 
tliorized emanating from the Governor, as from yourself or General 
Tannehill. It is' to be regretted that a communication was not, in 
the first instance, made to the Secretary at War, rather than to Gen- 
eral Tannehill. 

Yery respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO JOHN ARMSTRONG. 



Harrisburg, Januarn 31, 1814. 
To John Armstrong, Esq., Secretary of War : 

Sir : On Saturday last I received, by mail, the original letter of 
which the enclosed is a copy. From it you will perceive that Brig- 
adier General John Wilson, of the First brigade. Fifteenth division 
of Pennsylvania militia, has on duty at Fort Fayette a small party 
of men from his brigade, to protect against injury the public prop- 
erty in the fort, as also to guard some British prisoners there. The 
act the General has done is not authorized by any law of the Leg- 
islature, but dictated, as it was, by the exposed condition of the 
property and prisoners. I trust his orders may be recognized, and 
arrangements made for a permanent guard. I am anxious to hear 
the determination of the President on my communication to you of 
the 10th instant. 

With consideration of respect. 

Your humble servant, 

SIMON SNYDER.

IIarrisburg, 31sf January, 1814, 7 o'cfocfc, P. M. 

To William Duxcan, Esq., Adjutant General Pennsylvania mil- 
itia : 

Sir : Agreeably to a requisition by the President, under date of 
the loth inst., which did .not arrive until this evening, it becomes 
my duty to order into the service of the Union one thousand 
militia, to rendezvous and station at Erie, and there to be stationed 
for the defence of that place, if not otherwise ordered. 1 have it in 
contemplation to order these troops from the interior of the State. 
You will have perceived that, by a supplement to the militia law, 
passed during the last session of the Legislature, it is made the duty 
of the Adjutant General to organize detachments of militia, desig- 
nated for the United States service. Through him must also be 
executed any orders issued by the Commander-in-Chief. Hence your 
presence at this place becomes indispensable to discharge that duty. 
It will be necessary, before your departure for this place, (wliich you 
will hasten with all possible expedition.) that you learn from the 
Commissary General of Purchases at Philadelphia whether arms 
and other necessary equipments can be furnished at Carlisle or Pitts- 
burgh. This arrangement is indispensable to guard against any de- 
ficit amongst the men. Tents and camp kettles (particularly the 
latter) will be essentially necessary, and a supply ought to be ob- 
tained at v.'arlisle, or, if not there, to be forwarded from Philadel- 
phia by the Commissary General of Purchases. 

Very respectfully, 

SIMON SNYDER.

GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO GEN. DAVID MEAD. 



Harrisburg, February 1, 1814. 
To Gen. David Mead : 

Sir : From my communication to the Secretary at War of the 
10th of January last, has resulted a requisition from the President 
to me under date of the 15th ult., which, from some fatality, did 
notreacli this place until yesterdayevening, for one hundred militia 
to rendezvous at Erie, and to remain in service six months. This 
detachment will be marched with all possible dispatch from Cum- 
berland and otlier adjoining counties ; but as it cannot be ascertained 
that those troops will arrive at Erie before or at the time the term 
of service of the draft you ordered from the Second brigade of your 
division shall have expired, and as it may be necessary that a force 
adequate to tlie defence of the place be kept up. You will, therefore , 
retain in service, until the above mentioned detachment shall liave 
arrived, the draft from the Second brigade; or, perhaps, a portion 
of it, with the troops there of the United States, will be adequate. 
On this subject it will be proper to advise with Maj. Marlin, com- 
manding those troops at Erie, who is instructed by the Secretary at 



672 WAE OF 1812-14. 

War, in case of emergency, to call out such number of militia as 
may be necessary or expedient. For your satisfaction, I subjoin 
an extract from the Secretary's letter to me. Orders have been 
pivcu toMaj. Marlin,of the Twenty-second regiment, United States 
Infantry, to march with such regular troops as were at Pittsburgh, 
and to take post at Erie. He was instructed, in case of emergency, 
to call out sucii number of the neighboring militia as might be nec- 
essary or expedient. 

Very respectfully, 

SIMOX SNYDER.

To William Clark, Esq., Brigade Inspector: 

Sir : I enclose to you a check on the Bank of Pennsylvania for 
$12,000, (wliicii will be paid at Pittsburgh,) for the purpose of de- 
fraying tlie expense which may have accrued in marching the militia 
to Erie, under tlie orders of Gen. Mead, and for paying the men for 
their services. 

You will take the earliest opportunity of executing and forward- 
ing to this office a bond, with sureties, similar to tlie one already 
sent to you by Mr. Atkinson. The receipt of which, together with 
the check I sent you at the same time for $7,000, you have not yet 
acknowledged. Please to do it with as little delay as possible, as 
my receipt for the check lias been given to the State Treasurer. 
Very respectfully, sir.

GOV. SIMOX SNYDER TO GEN. DAVID MEAD. 



Harrisburg, February 4, 1814. 
To Maj. Gen. David Mead : 

Sir : It is a matter of regret that no mode for guarding against a 
sudden invasion of our lake frontier has yet been adopted less ex- 
pensive to tlie State than the one pursued. Permit me to suggest a 
system to which, w^hilst danger is at so great a distance as is the 



WAR or 1812-U. 673 

enemy's force in the straits from Erie, would, in my apprehen- 
sion of others, be equally efficacious, and save to the State an ex- 
pense, to which, if calls en ^naxse are continued, our ordinary re- 
sources will be altogether unequal. 

Let us say one hundred and fifty or two hundred men be stationed 
at thirty or more miles in advance towards the straits, at a place cal- 
culated for creating tlie greatest possible quantity of obstruction to 
an invading army. Let a few active and enterprising individuals, 
mounted on good horses, be stationed in advance of the main body, 
at places where probably tlie enemy might attempt an eruption, 
with directions on the ai)pearance of an enemy, or any movements 
by him indicating an attack, to convey intelligence thereof to the 
commanding officer. Let it be his duty in such case immediatily 
to cause every obstruction that tiie face of the country affords, to 
be created by the tearing up of bridges, and the felling of timber 
trees across the roads, &c. This would retard an invading force, 
so that sufficient time would be had to bring out the neighboring 
militia, in numbers sufficient to repel any disposable force the enemy 
may have on tlie straits. Other avenues for the approach of an 
enemy (if there are any) might be guarded in a similar manner. 
Standing orders to the militia of your division, might be issued to 
hold themselves in readiness to march at a moment's warning. 

This suggestion grows out of a wish, which I trust you feel 
equally strong with myself, to prevent a dissipation of public treas- 
ure in the pursuit of measures which appear to me of doubtful 
utility. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

SIMOJ^ SNYDER.

General Orders. 

Harrisburg, 7ih February, 1814. 

James Lamberton, Esq.. Inspector of First Brigade, Seventh Divi- 
sion, Pennsylvania Ililitia: 

Sir : You will immediately, upon the receipt of this communica- 
tion, order the militia of your brigade, designated for the service of 
tlie United States under general orders of the 12th day of May, 
1812, to rendezvous on the most early day possible, at the place you 
sliall deem most convenient, within the bounds of your brigade, and 
thence to marcii to Erie, the place designated by the Secretary at 
War for general rendezvous, to compose part of a regiment of militia 
to be tliere organized agreeably to law. 

It is fondly anticipated that those of the militia who have hereto- 
fore patriotically volunteered their service in substitution of drafts 
will, with unbated zeal, submit to such officering and organization of 
their several corps a^ will conform to the rules and regulations of 
United States army, recognized by an act of the General Assembly 
passed the 29tii March, 1813. For your guide, as respects brigade 
organization, you are referred to an act of the present Legislature, 
passed this day, a copy whereof is herewith transmitted. 

It is essential tiiat the several Brigade Inspectors, viz : of the 
First and Second brigades of the Seventh division, and of the Second 
brigade of the Fifth division, before they shall have marched their 
several whole detachments, make such arrangements amongst them- 
selves as that one thousand men, rank and file, with competent 
number of oHicers, will be delivered to the Adjutant General, or his 
deputy, at Erie, on tlie 5th day of March next, for organization. 

It is strictly enjoined that the arms within your brigade be col- 
lected and put into the hands of the marching troops. Any una- 
voidable deficiency will be supplied at the place of rendezvous. 

By order of the Governor.

and yourself, of the First brigade. Seventh divison, in proportion 
to the number of men you shall respectively march to the place of 
general rendezvous, taking from each of the Brigade Inspectors re- 
sponsible receipts for the sums they respectively receive from you, 
which receipts you will transmit to the Auditor General. You will 
forward from Carlisle, by express, with all convenient dispatch, the 
general orders of the 7th inst., to William McClelland. Inspector

with an unanimity and cordiality which are the surest evidence of 
the high sense entertained by their constituents of the eminent ser- 
vices you have rendered your country. Tlie language of the pre- 
amble so fully expresses the general feeling and opinion that nothing 
is left for me to add, other than that I entirely concur in those feel- 
ings and opinions, and feel proud that, in the discharge of my offi- 
cial duties, the Legislature have imposed one so gratifying as that 
of presenting you the sword, which will be herewith delivered by 
Colonel John Binns, my aid. Should future opportunities present

N. B. BOILEAU TO HENRY HURST. 



Harrisburg, February 14, 1814. 
To Hexry Hurst, Esq: 

Sir : Yours of the 2d inst., I have received. T trust that we have 
at length come to an understanding with regard to the $500 ad- 
vanced by Gen. Mead to the militia who volunteered on board 
Perry's fleet, and in my letter to the General of the 18tli ult., I 
stated to him that if the sum he had advanced to these men was 
surely the amount of pay due to them for the whole tour of duty 
they performed under his call, Mr. Phillips, the Paymaster, could 
make no difliculty in refunding the money, on his producing the re- 
ceii)ts from these men of their having received their pay. 

As to the construction of the supplement to the militia law passed 
29th March last, we are still at issue. My construction, however, 
is of little moment as I have no power to instruct or control the 
accountant officers in the settlement of the expenses incurred under 
that law. But it is all important that Gen. Mead, and those who 
concur with liim in opinion, should conceive the accountant officers 
that their construction of the law is erroneous. It is true the Gov- 
ernor in his communication to the Legislature, did not mention 
particularly the militia called into service by Gen. Mead. This cir- 
cumstance I am confident did not originate from any unfavorable 
representations made to him of the conduct of these men, nor from 
his not properly appreciating their merits in promptly obeying the 
orders of the General at a season so inconvenient for them to leave 
their homes. And he noticed them particularly, he must have pro- 
ceeded to notice those who marched into the State of Delaware un- 
der Col. Rush, those who volunteered from the county of Chester, 
and marched into the State of Maryland, those volunteer companies 
from the borough of Lancaster, who at their own expense marched 
to Elkton, who never asked or received a single cent for their ser- 
vices, those also from Philadelphia, who volunteered their services 
at the fort without receiving any compensation. In fine, wlien w^as

plaiued of was wholly unintentional on the part of the Executive.

GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO GEN. DAVID MEAD. 



Harrisburg, February 14, 1814. 
To Maj. Gen. David Mead : 

Sir : In answer to your communication of the 4th instant, I have 
but to repeat as respects the defence of Erie, and the fleet there ly- 
ing, tlie suggestions I made in my letter to you of the 4th instant. 
Such a force would be every way adequate to guard against a sud- 
den surprise; and, under a proper organization, would arrest the 
enemy until a competent force of the neighboring militia could be 
brougiit out. Should the enemy have a disposable force on the 
straits competent to the apprehended enterprise, and should he liave 
the temerity to march through a hostile country upwards of ninety 
miles, with a knowledge of being obliged to retrace his steps in a 
retreat, and with a knowledge, also, to moral certainty of being de- 
stroyed in the attempt. To justify such a sacrifice on the part of 
the enemy, I cannot perceive a motive in even a certain destruction 
of our fleet at Erie, because, if accomplished, still would we, with 
the vessels of war lying above Erie, have the command of the lake, 
and with them could we crush ariy effort in the enemv's power to 
make towards gaining the ascendency on that water. 

Though the preservation of our fleet is all important, yet permit 
me, sir, to say that in the communication to you by Lieut. Elliott, 
commandant of the fleet upon which, and upon the letter of a Major 
Barns, you predicted the orders as well for the marching en masse 
of the First brigade, as the subsequent requisition, (nothing having 
subsequently to your first orders transpired tending to increase dan- 
ger, as is admitted in one of your late letters,) that ofticer expressed 
not any fears for the safety of the fleet under his command. And I 
must be permitted to remark, also, that at that the vessels were un- 
incumbered by ice. and continued so down to the 27th of January. 
You are already apprised that general orders have issued for the 
rendezvousing at Erie of one thousand men on the 5th March next. 
Until that force has arrived, I trust the measures I have suggested 



67g WAR OF 1812-14. 

may be adopted, which, in my opinion, will be commensurated witli 
any danger that may grow out of any disposable force the enemy 
can have at so distant a point as is the straits from Erie. 
Very respectfully, 

Your obedient servant, 

SIMON SNYDEK. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO FREDERICK FOERING. 



Harrisburg, 14t/t February, 1814. 
To Frederick Foering, Esq., Dejnity Quarter-Master General: 
Sir : In consequence of a requisition made by the President of 
the United States, the Governor has ordered a detachment of one 
thousand rank and file of the militia from the counties of Cumber- 
land, Adams, and Franklin, to rendezvous at Erie, on the 5th of 
March next. As the men are unwilling to march at this inclement 
season of tlie year, without being furnished with tents, and they 
cannot be supplied from this place, nor a sufficient number be had 
at Carlisle, the Governor directs that you make application, with 
the least possible delay, to the proper officer of the United States, at 
Piiiladelphia, for thirteen large and fifty small tents out of the 
United States arsenal, and, if procured, to forward them, with all 
convenient dispatch, to ('arlisle, there to be delivered to James 
Lamberton, Esq., Brigade Inspector at that place. 

Very respectfully, &c.,

To Frederick Foering, Esq., Deputy Quarter-Master General: 
Sii; : If you cannot procure the tents from the United States 
arsenal, then take them out of those you procured, by direction of 
the Governor, for the use of this State. If the expense of trans- 
portation will not be allowed by the United States officer, it will be 
paid liere on the wagoners producing a receipt from Maj. Lamber- 
ton for tlieir delivery, or any other satisfactory evidence that they 
have been delivered to any officer of the detachment at Carlisle. 

Very respectfully, &c.,

N. B. BOILEAU TO JAMES LAMBEETOX. 



Harrisburg, February 15, 1814, 
To James Lamberton", Brigade Inspector : 

Sir: The Governor regrets tliat the plan for marching the troops 
in small detachments and quartering tliem in houses, as agreed upon 
between himself and Mr. Lamberton, has been abandoned. It was 
calculated to expedite the march, and would have prevented delay 
in starting, that is necessarily created by the demand for tents, be- 
cause these must be brought from Pliiladelphia. They are written 
for, and if not furnished by the United States, will be sent on to 
Carlisle out of the State arsenal. It is all-important (because it 
will save considerable expense to the State at Erie) that those of 
the troops, who can have a sui)ply of tents, should march as soon as 
possible, to take post at Erie, in room of General Mead's requisition. 
If more money should be necessary, arrangements will be made, 
either at tliis place, before you march, or at Pittsburgh, if you shall 
have marched, so that you may be supplied with what may be 
deemed needful. 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO GEN. DAVID MEAD. 



Harrisburg, February 17, 1814. 
To Gen. David Mead : 

Sir : Yours of the 3d inst., I received last evening. It is, indeed, 
matter of regret, and to none more than to the Governor, that so 
much delay has occurred in the payment of the men who served 
under your orders. To prevent this delay, Mr. Trimble, by direc- 
tion of the Governor, wrote to Mr. Pnillips, on the 4th of October 
last, requesting him to furnisli, without delay, an estimate of the 
sum necessary to pay the men, having no documents here on which 
to make a calculation. Colonel Phillips stated he was not able to 
give the estimate, and even in his letter of 28th January last, he 
says he is unable to do it, because the captains have not furnished 
him with their rolls. From a review of the whole transaction, I can 
perceive no neglect on the part of the Executive ; he wished the 
money to be sent promptly, whenever the amount necessary could 
be known. In the meantime directed Mr. Pliillips to proceed with 
what he had in his hands, as far as it would go, and any deficit 
would be forwarded to him as soon as ascertained. By the eighth 



680 



WAR OF 1812-14. 



section of tlio supplementary act of tlie 29tli of March last, it is 
made tlie duty of the commanding otlicer of each regiment, and, 
also, for the commanding officer of each company, to furnish the 
jKiy master with comi)lete lists or roll of all the commissioned, non- 
commissioned officers, and privates under their respective com- 
mands. This duty, as a[)pears from Colonel Pliillips' letters of the 
28th ult., iiad not even then been performed. May not the delay of 
payment then be fairly attributed to the neglect of those officers in 
not jierforming tlie preUminary and necessary duty of furnisliing 
tiie i)aymaster with tlie list or rolls. 

A sum, however, such as the Governor supposed will be sufficient, 
(for even at this late hour it can only be guessed at,) to pay off the 
men, will be forwarded to Colonel Phillips, with tlie least possible 
delay. With regard to the other expenses, 1 beg leave to refer you 
to tlie accountant department. I have already intimated their 
oiiinion. or construction, of the law, and, unless you can convince 
thein tiiat their construction is incorrect, the difficulties can only 
be removed by the Legislature, which already is acquainted with 
the difficulty, as your letters on the subject, and others connected 
witli it, have been communicated. Your last letter, also, will be 
put into the hands of the committee who have the subject under 
consideration. Permit me to assure you that, neither in my letter 
to Mr. Foster, or to any other person, have I ever designed, in the 
least degree, to treat you with disrespect. 
Very respectfully, sir,

Sir : By a resolution of the Legislature, the Governor is directed 
to present to each of tliose citizens of Pennsylvania who volunteered 
on board the American squadron on Lake Erie, at the time the 
British fleet were captured, a silver medal, with such emblematical 
devices as he may think proper. In order to comuly with the re- 
solution, it is necessary he should be furnished with the names of 
those volunteers. I have, therefore, to request that you will take 
the earliest opportunity of forwarding a correct list of their names. 
If you are not in the possession of their names, you will please to

To James Lamberton, Esq., Brigade Inspector : 

Sir: The Governor has directed me to furnish you with a copy 
of the opinions of Mr. Dallas, district attorney of the United States, 
and of Mr. Ingersoll, tiie Attorney General. Agreeably to which 
proceedings have been instituted by some of the brigade inspectors 
against those who were delinquents, and deserted from otiier de- 
tachments which were ordered into the service of the United States. 

A difficulty wliich occurred respecting the expenses of courts- 
martial has been obviated by the comptroller of the United States 
Treasury, who directs the costs to be paid by the marshal out of the 
iines received. The detachments are to be organized at Erie, so as 
to form one regiment, to consist of ten companies of one hundred 
men each, rank and file, to be officered as follows : One colonel, one 
lieutenant colonel, two majors ; to each company, one captain, first, 
second, and third lieutenants, one ensign, four sergeants, and four 
corporals, and customary staff. The regiment to be divided into 
two battalions, each to be commanded by one major. Col. .James 
Fenton, Colonel Commandant, lieutenant colonels and majors tliose 
designated by law. You will please to furnish Mr. McClelland and 
Mr. Welsh witli a copy of tliis letter, also with copies of Mr. Dallas 
and Mr. IngersolFs opinion, as I had not time to prepare copies for 
this day's mail. You will also please to ask Mr. McClelland to fur- 
nish you and Mr. Welsh with copies of the special instructions he 
has received from the marshal on the subject of his procedure in 
collecting the fines. 

Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant,

682 WAR OF 1812-14. 

N. B. BOILEAU TO WILLIAM CLARK. 



Harrisburg, February 23, 1814. 
To William Clark, Es<i. : 

Sir : Yours of the 14th inst. was received by the last mail, (yester- 
day.) So far as rej?ards the payment of the privates who served 
under the orders of Gen. Mead there can be no doubt. It is desira- 
ble that they should be paid promptly. Tliis you will do as soon as 
tlie proper officers furnish you with the lists or rolls agreeably to 
law. With regard to tlie officer's pay there is certainly great diffi- 
culties. These have not been i)roduced by any of the departments 
here. You are perfectly aware that neither the Governor, myself, 
nor accountant officers are authorized to give any other instructions 
than those contained in the laws. These laws are before you and 
they must be your guide, as they will be the rule of settlement by 
the accountant officers, before whom I have laid your letter, and 
who do not authorize me to give more specific instructions. You 
will please to furnish Quarter-master General Wilson Smitli with 
certified copies of the muster-rolls, agreeably to the militia laws, to 
enable him to settle the ration accounts, who, it is to be regretted, 
will have similar difficulties with yourself as it regards the officers.' 
Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary, 



N. B. BOILEAU TO JAMES LAMBERTOX. 



Harrisburg, February 24, 1814. 
To James Lambertox, Esq., Brkjadc Inspector of the First Bri- 
gade, Seventh Division: 
Sir: I answer to yours of the 23d inst., I have the Governor's 
directions to reply, that in drafting men vou confine yourself to the 
quota required from your brigade. Messrs. Welsh and McClelland 
will be instructed that in case their first draft will not furnish the 
requisite quota, to proceed to a second, to make np the deficiency. 
Should Welsh in his first draft be deficient, and send on the men he 
has obtained, you will take them in charge, and march them on to 
tne place ot general rendezvous, and furnish them with subsistence.

I wrote this day, by order of the Governor, to Messrs. Welsh and 
McClelland, instructing them as above suggested. 
Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO GEORGE WELSH. 



Hakrisburg, Fe6rMary24, 1814. 

To George Welsh, Esq., Brigade Inspector of Second Brigade, 

Fifth Division : 

Sir : As it may possibly happen that your first draft may not fur- 
nish a quota sufficient when added to those from, other brigades, 
to make one thousand rank and file, in that case the Governor di- 
rects tiiat you send on the men that you have obtained, under the 
direction of such oflTicer as you may deem suitable, and proceed to 
a second draft to make up the deficiency, and march them as early 
as possible to the place of general rendezvous. It is suggested 
whether it might not be expedient to march the present draft to Car- 
lisle, and put tliem under the direction of Mr. Lamberton, to march 
them on with the quota from his brigade, while you proceed to make 
up the deficiency by a second draft, as above directed. 

By order of the Governor.

N. B. BOILEAU TO WILLIAM McCLELLAND. 



Harrisburg, February 24, 1814. 

To William McClelland, Esq., Inspector of Second Brigade, 

Seventh Division : 

Sir : In answer to your letter of the 21st ult., to the Governor, I 
am directed to state that in case your first draft does not furnish a 
quota sufficient when added to those from Mr. Lambei'ton's and 
Welsh's brigades to make one thousand men, rank and file, then you 
put under the direction of Maj. Lamberton the number you may 
have ready to march, and proceed to make another draft to make 



684 WAR OF 1812-14. 

up tlie deficiency of your quota, and march them on to tlie general 
phice of rendezvous as expeditiously as practicable. You will make 
an arrauffenient with Mr. Lamberton as to the point wliere your de- 
tachment will join his. A sufficient number of tents, together with 
those at Carlisle, to accommodate the whole detachment are now 
on the road from Philadelphia, and will be at Carlisle on Saturday 
next. 
IJy order of the Governor.

N. B. BOILEAU TO WILSO^i^ SMITH. 



Harrisbxjrg, February 24, 1814. 
To Wilson Smith, Esq., Quarter-master General: 

Sir : Yours of the 15th Inst., I have just received, containing a re- 
quest for the transmission of a further sum of $20,000, to pay exi)enses 
incurred at Erie, under the orders of Gen. Mead. It would ai)pear, 
from jour letter, tliat the check I forwarded to you, in a letter under 
date of the 4th inst., has not been received. An account allowed by 
Gen. Mead, amounting to $1S,404 27, for rations furnished, was pre- 
sented yesterday, (copies of which Mr. Bryan states he has forwarded 
to you,) and S16,000 has been paid on account. Of tlie intention of 
presenting those accounts, I presume you were not informed, or you 
would not liave asked for so large a sum. In paying expenses you 
will discriminate between those which come under the notice of 
your department and those not contemplated by any law, and, con- 
sequently, may be of doubtful nature. Such as house rent, building 
block-houses, rations to supernumerary officers, and certain grades 
or descriptions of officers not designated or recognized by law. With 
regard to such items, it might be proper for you first to consult the 
accountant officers, to prevent embarrassments in settling your ac- 
counts with them. The subject has been brought before the Legis- 
lature, but not yet acted on. If, after the receipt of the $10,000, 
there should still be a deficit, write to inform me what will be suf- 
ficient to meet legitimate charges, in order that it may be trans- 
mitted. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



WAR OF 181 2-U. 685 

N. B. BOILEAU TO COL. ROBERT BULL. 



Harrisburg, February 25, 1814. 
To Lieut. Col. Robert Bull : 

Sir : In answer to yours of yesterday to the Governor, relative 
" to the regimental staff, I have to refer you to the seventh and eigiith 
sections of tlie act for the regulation of the militia, passed 9th April, 
1807. By which it appears the field officers of the regiment are to 
appoint their staffs. Colonel Fenton, yourself, and the other field 
officers of the regiment ordered into service will, therefore, arrange 
the staff in a manner conformable to the law as above mentioned, 
and which may be most agreeable to yourselves. A Paymaster has 
been already appointed by the Governor, under the act supplement- 
ary to the militia law passed at the last sesson of the Legislature. 
Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO GEN. D. MEAD. 



Harrisburg, March 3, 1814. 
Gen. D. Mead, Ifeadville: 

Sir : Yours of the 21st of February has just been handed me, to- 
gether with the copy of a requisition from Major Marlin, on you, 
for two thousand militia, to constitute a force for the defence of 
Erie and the United States fleet there remaining. In compliance 
with your request that 1 would be explicit in my communications 
to you, I take the freedom to say that whatever cause may have 
heretofore existed for the maintenance of troops at Erie, more than 
the United States force at that place, there cannot be the slightest 
grounds for its continuance. I infer this from the trifling dispos. 
cible foi-ce, if any, the enemy have on the straits, from your own 
communications, and from tlie opinion given me a few days since, 
at this place, by an officer of prominence lately under your com- 
mand, and from a general view of the subject, and I hope it may 
be distinctly understood that the acts you may do, under the orders 
of Major Marlin, cannot be the result of a discretion vested in you 
by any law of the Legislature. Tliat the execution of any orders 
you may issue, predicated on the Major's requisition, and the ex- 
pense growing thereout, are not warranted by any law of the State, 
and the expense cannot be paid out of its funds. Such were my 



686 WAR OF 1812-14. 

impressions when I referred you, in my letter of the 1st February, 
to Major Murlin's orders from the Secretary at War; but tliat no- 
thing may remain for construction, I have thus explicitly put down 
my views on tlie subject of a continual defence at tlie expense of 
the State. You will hence infer that any troops so ordered into ser- 
vice will consider themselves as volunteers, in the service of the 
United States, and to that government they must look for i)ay and 
subsistence. I should, ere this, have been more explicit in my com- 
munications to you did not the language of the law under which 
you act seem to vest in you a discretionary power to continue a de- 
tachment of militia in service for thirty days. Whetlier the law 
warrants, by a succession of calls, the maintenance of a permanent 
force under your orders, is rendered very doubtful, both by the letter 
and spirit of the law, and were the subject not now under consid- 
eration of the Legislature, I should feel inclihed to give my voice 
against your construction, and to add my disapprobation of the 
longer continuance at Erie of any militia force at the expense of 

the State. 

Respectfully, your obedient servant, 

SIMON SNYDER.

N. B. BOILEAU TO GEN. WILLIAM BROOKE. 



Harrisburg, March 5, 1814. 
To. Gen. William Brooke: 

Sir : In answer to yours of the 1st inst., to the Governor, I have 
to state that one thousand stand of arms and equipments, under 
the act of Congress for arming the whole body of the militia, will 
be deposited in the State arsenal, at Philadelphia, under the care 
of Frederick Foering, Esq., Deputy Quarter-master General of this 
State, by Callender Irwin, Commissary General of the United States, 
ready to be delivered when necessary. Mr. Foering has also pur- 
chased a sufficient quantity of ammunition. To him, therefore, 
application must be made when any exigency may arise that requires 
those articles. The cartridge boxes sent to Chester, although not 
of the best quality, will at least serve for a short campaign. Any 
man who receives a box can easily put a few more tacks to secure 
the belts. Should they be entirely unfit for use, a supply can be had 
from Mr. Foering. The necessary instructions will be given to Mr. 
Foering on the above points. 

Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



AVAR OF 1812-14. 687 

N. B. BOILEAU TO FREDERICK FOERING. 



Harrisburg, March 5, 1814. 
To Frederick Foering, Esq., Deputy Quarter-master General: 

Sir : The Governor received a letter from Callender Irwin, Com- 
missary General, stating that he had orders to deliver to the order 
of the Governor, one thousand stand of arms and equipments, a 
part of the State's quota from the United States. 

The Governer directs that you call on the commissary for these 
arms and equipments, and when received to receipt for tlie same, 
and have them deposited in the State arsenal. 

There is also about two hundred stand of State arras in possession 
of Joseph Henry, (son of William Henry, of Northampton, wlio 
manufactured them,) No. 288 Tliird street, which you will also 
have removed to State arsenal. Those arms are probably in boxes, 
as well as the former, and if the racks in the arsenal are not made, 
the boxes can be deposited in the arsenal ; if not boxed they can be 
set up in the arsenal until the racks are ready. 

The Governor further directs that in case of a threatened invasion 
of the shores of the Delaware, and you should be called upon by 
Brig. Gen. Brooke, of the Third division, or Maj. Gen. Steele, of the 
said division, for arms, equipments, and ammunition, that you fur- 
nish them with what may be deemed necessary. 

Vei'y respectlully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO CAFT. SAMUEL COOPER. 



Harrisburg, March 7, 1814. 
To ('apt. SA>ruEL Cooper : 

Sir : In answer to your letter to the Governor of the 23d ult., 
relative to pay due your companies, I am instructed to say that 
there is no power vested in the Governor to order payments to the 
militia, other than such disbursements as are authorized by law. 
Your claim for pay not coming within the notice of any existing 
law of the State, cannot, therefore, be allowed by the accountant 
officers. The militia of other States who, like you, have been in 
the service of the United States, urge similar claims. The subject, 
it is said, is now before Congress, and it will probably soon be 



68£ WAR OF 1812-14. 

determined by tliat body whetlier such claims oiiglit or ought not to 
be paid by the United States. Gen. Tannehill being now in Con- 
gress has a fair opportunity of urging the justice of your chiim 
against the United States, which ought of right to pay tlie militia 
from two days before marcliingfrom their respective brigade, for 
this very substantial reason : The government of the United States 
claims the fines imposed on those of the militia who are delinquent 
in not marching to the place of rendezvous in consequence of a re- 
quisition by the President of the United States. You will please 
to show this letter to Capt. Turbett. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO N. B. BOILEAU. 



Gexeral Orders. 

Harrisburg, March 8, 1814. 
To N. B. BoiLEAU, Aid-cle-Camp : 

The detachment of one thousand men, Pennsylvania militia, of 
which you are constituted and appointed Colonel commandant, hav- 
ing arrived, or the major part of it, at Erie, the place of general 
rendezvous, you will as soon as practicable organize (and any that 
may subsequently to a commencement of organization arrive) into 
one regiment, to consist of two battalions, and each battalion to 
consist of five companies. Tiie ofiicer in command is to be a lieu- 
tenant colonel. Each battalion is to be commanded by a major. 
Each company to be officered as follows : one captain, one first lieu- 
tenant, one second lieutenant, and one ensign, four sergeants and 
four corporals, and each company to consist of one hundred men 
rank and file. The officers to rank and be selected and appointed 
according to law. The regiment to have the customary staff, and 
be constituted and appointed according to law. In the performance 
of wliich duty it is commanded, that the othcers of your regiment 
be to you aiding and assisting, and strict and complete obedience is 
hereby enjoined on all the officers and men of your regiment to all 
your lawful commands. 

As soon as you shall have organized the regiment as commanded, 
you will report yourself, and the number of the men under your 
command, to the nearest general officer commanding for the United 



WAR OF 1812-U. 6S9 

States ; and you are ordered and directed to yield complete obedi- 
ence to any orders issned by your superior officer commanding at 
Erie, or elsewhere, for tlie United States. 

From the alacrity with whicli very many of j'our detachment vol- 
unteered there services at an inclmiient season, the Commander-in- 
Chief anticipates honorable results from citizen soldiers, whose valor 
is not circumscribed by geographical limits of territory. 

SIMON SNYDER, 
Governor of the State of Pennsylvania. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO JOHN JOHNSTON. 



Harkisburg, March 8, 1814. 
To John Johnston, Esq., Postmaster at Pittsburgh: 

Sir : I have taken the liberty to enclose to your care a letter for 
James Lamberton, Esq., Brigade Inspector, who is now conducting 
a detachment of militia, from the Fifth and Seventh divisions, at 
Erie, requesting that you will have the goodness to have it delivered 
to him as soon as you shall have learned his arrival at Pittsburgh. 
By the same mail, you will also receive a package directed to Col. 
James Fenton, commandant of the said detachment, which I have 
also requested you to have delivered to him as soon as he shall ar- 
rive. If he should not arrive witli the detachment, you will then 
please to have it put into tiie liands of Mr. Lamberton. 
Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO COL. JAMES FENTON. 



Secretary's Office, March 8, 1814. 
To Col. James Fenton, Pittsburgh: 

Sir : Agreeably to the authority in him vested by the fourth sec- 
tion of a supplement to the militia law, passed 29th March, 1813, 
(a copy of which and a copy, also, of another supplement passed by 
the present Legistature, is herewith forwarded,) the Governor 
has, by general orders of this day, authorized you to organize the 
44— Vol. XII. 



690 WAR OF 1812-14. 

Fifth detacliment of Pennsylvania militia unrter your command. 
Blank commissions, forty-two in number, are also forwarded to you, 
signed and duly attested. These you will cause to be tilled with the 
names of such otticers as shall have been selected before marching 
from their several and respective brigades, or as may be elected at 
Erie, agreeably to the first mentioned supplement. You will observe 
that in all cases of selecticm it will be necessary to change the word 
'■'■elected " in the commissions, and substitute therefor '• designated " 
or " selected.'''' The number of blank commissions will be sufficient 
for two majors, ten second and ten tliird lieutenants, and ten ensigns. 
First lieutenants already commissioned, it is presumed the full num- 
ber have marched, and probably a sufficient number of ensigns, but 
to guard against deficiency, ten blanks are also sent for the last named 
officers. Not having any return from the several Brigade Inspectors 
of the officers marcljed, entitled to command under the militia law, 
it is probable that those intended for majors, and, perhaps others, 
may be useless. All such you will return to this office. 
By order of the Governor.

Aid-de-Camp. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO GEORGE ARMSTRONG. 



Harrisburg, March 10, 1814. 

To George Armsthong, Esq., Brigade Inspector, Greensburg, 

Westmoreland county : 

Sir : Yours of the 5th ult., has been received. When I wrote you 
on the 27th November last, it was my impression that the fines were 
to be collected under the militia law of tliis State. Some time after 
I saw a letter from the Marsiial to the Adjutant General, directing 
that report should be made to him of the amount of fines imposed ; 
that it was his duty to have them collected. I then wrote to the 
^Marshal, that if the fines were to be collected by him, or under his 
order, and paid over to the United States, that it appeared to me 
that it was incumbent on him to instruct the Brigade Inspectors 
as to the mode of procedure. In the meantime I wrote to Mr. In- 
gersoll, Attorney General, for his opinion on the subject. After a 
considerable lapse of time, I received his opinion, accompanied by 
that of Mr. Dallas, District Attorney of the United States, whom 
the Marshal had also consulted, they concurred in opinion that the 
fines should be collected under the laws of the United States, and 
for their use. The law of the United States directs that delinquents 



WAR OF 1812-14. 691 

should be tried by courts-martial, to be composed of militia officers, 
but gives no direction of the manner of forming that court, nor 
who is to summon it. It appears to me, however, that it was the 
duty of the Governor, as Commander-in-Chief, to direct the Adju- 
tant General to have the courts-martial formed. The President of 
the United States required the Governor to furnish, for the service 
of the United States, a certain number of men ; it was his duty to 
obey this requisition, and enforce obedience to the orders by him 
given, in consequence of orders given to him by his superior officer, 
the President. I consider the court-martial as organized under the 
aiithority of the United States, through the medium of tlie Gov- 
ernor. It is certain that the law is not as explicit as could be wished. 
It is equally certain that delinquents ought to be punished, and it is 
no evidence of patriotism for any individual or set of individuals 
to encourage the evasion of laws intended for the defence of the 
rights of our country. 

If official copies of the orders received by the Governor from the 
President of the United States, requiring those detachments of mi- 
litia, is deemed necessary, they can be furnished to the courts-mar- 
tial. It is presumed, however, that court will put sutlicient faith 
and confidence in the Governor as not to doubt the fact, as stated 
in his general orders, that the requisitions were made by the Presi- 
dent. With regard to the expenses of the courts-martial, I wrote 
you on the 11th ult., and gave you a copy of the Controller General's 
letter, in which he states that these expenses will be allowed out of 
the fines collected by the Marshal. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
iSecretary. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO JOHX SMITH. 



Harrisburg, March 11, 1814. 
To John Smith, Esq.. Marshal, Pennsylvania District: 

Sir : The court-martial which sat for the trial of delinquent 
militia men in Washington county, did not think themselves au- 
thorized to proceed against such as refused to appear in their proper 
persons; nor did the court consider they had the power to issue 
compulsory process to bring them before the court, and if they had 
such power who was to serve the process. In consequence of tliese 
doubts and difficulties the refractory escaped punishmen 



692 WAR OF 1812-14. 

On this subject the Governof declines givinij an oijinion to Mr. 
Dunlap, tlie Brigade Inspector, as the proceedings were under the 
United States laws, and directed hira to call on you and Mr. Dallas 
for instructions. Mr. Dallas states that he had so done, but has 
received no instructions from either of you. Tlie Governor con- 
siders the matter of much importance, and directs me to request of 
you, and through you, of Mr. Dallas a decisive opinion on these 
points, to be furnished to tiiis department, or to the several Brigade 
Inspectors immediately concerned, of whose names you have a list, 
that they may have such dii-ections as to enable them to bring this 
tedious l)usiness to a satisfactory and just conclusion. If the re- 
fractory escape, a total insubordination amongst the militia will 
ensue. 

Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



JAMES TRIMBLE TO DAVID FULLERTON. 



Office of the Secretary of the Commonavealth, 

Harrisburg, April 16, 1814. 
To David Fullerton, E.sq., Greencustle, Franklin county : 

Siu : Mr. Boileau being absent, I answer, by direction of the 
Governor, your letter dated April the 4th inst., in which, as a mem- 
ber of a court-martial, held for the trial of delinquent militia men 
who refusfd to march, agreeably to general orders of the 7th day of 
February last, predicted on a requisition of the President, you ask 
information as to whom return of proceedings must be made. That 
a return, duly certified by the court, must be made to the marshal 
of the district, appears from the face of the law you cite. Tiiat this 
ought to be done as speedy as possible, and before the proceedings 
transpire, is evident. The officer of supervisor of the revenue of 
the district does no longer exist. Samuel H. Smith, Esq., of the 
city of Washington, is commissioner of the revenue ; to him it may 
be proi)er to send a duplicate ; but I know not of any law that re- 
quires it to be done. 

I am, respectfully. 

Your friend and humble servant, 

JAMES TRIMBLE, 
Deputy Secretary.

JAMES TRfMBLE TO WILLIAM CLARK. 



Harrisburg, April 18, 1814. 
To William Clark, Esq.. Paymasttr: 

Sir: In accordance with your letter under date of 23d March, 
1814, requesting tlie transmission to you of anotlier check on the 
Branch Bank at Pittsburgh for $7,000, to enable you to pay tiie troops 
lately ordered into service by Maj. Gen. Mead, I do now (Mr. 
Boileau being absent) transmit to you such a check, tiie receipt of 
which you will acknowledge. It was not known here, before the 
receipt of your letter, that the first detachment from the Second 
brigade had been retained in service over thirty days. Xur is it 
recollected that the Governor, in any of his communications, directly 
or indirectly authorizes sucli a detention in service. It will, there- 
fore, behoove you to conform strictly to the supplement of tlie 29th 
March, 1813, and to the act of the last session, intended to cover all 
lawful expenditures. Your letter has been submitted to the Audi- 
tor General, and I give you verbatim his opinion, in which the State 
• Treasurer concurs, as follows : 

"Auditor General's Office, March 18, 1814. 
His JSxceUency the Governor : 

Sir: Agreeably to your request, I have read Mr. Paymaster 
Clark's letter of the 23d of last month, addressed to Mr. Boileau. 

In respect to the continuance of the first detacliment of the Sec- 
ond brigade, in service the second month, it will be necessary for 
Maj. Clark to furnish, with his accounts of the pay, the requisite 
evidence for such service ; that is to say, if the second month's ser- 
vice was in consequence of orders from Maj. Gen. Mead, it must ap- 
pear that the call and consequent service of said detachment were 
in conformity to the act for the regulation of the militia of the Com 
monwealth of Pennsylvania. For, although the act of last session 
contains a very broad provision as to the pay, &c., of the officers 
and men called out by Maj. Gen. Mead, the accountant officers are 
of opinion that the calls must appear to have been made, conform- 
ably to the act of the 29th March, 1813. 

I have the honor to be, very respectfully. 

Your Excellency's most obedient servant, 

George Bryan." 

I am very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

JAMES TRIMBLE, 

Deputy Secretary.

N. B. BOILEAU TO COL. JAMES FENTOX. 



Harrisburg, May 16, 1814. 
To Col. James Fenton : 

Sir: In answer to yours of the 4th inst., I am directed to say 
that there is not in the late, nor in the present, militia law any pro- 
vision favoring tlie opinion that volunteers in regimental arrange- 
ments are entitled to any particularly eligible station on parade or 
otherwise. In the present case, the volunteers having offered their 
services in substitution of drafts, they appear to stand on the same 
ground with drafted militia. It is, indeed, matter of regret that 
under existing laws, no mark of distinction can be conferred no 
the volunteers of your regiment, as they truly merit some hon- 
orable notice for their patriotism and zeal in the cause of their coun- 
try. I refer you to the thirteenth section of an act passed 26th 
March, 1808, of this State, containing the only provision on the sub- 
ject, but in it there is nothing as you will perceive, recognizing the 
preference, which your volunteers claim. The United States laws 
ai'e also silent on the subject, except that officers of the United 
States shall take rank of the officers of tlie militia of equal grade 
whatever may be the dates of their commissions. By the articles 
of War, see act of Congress April 10, 1806, articles sixty-five and 
sixty-six, it becomes your duty to order courts-martial for the trial 
of delinquents and deserters, and such ought to have been the 
course of procedure in the first instance. Perhaps the proceedings 
had by the Brigade Inspector against delinquents may yet be au- 
thenticated by you. On this subject it would be advisable for you 
to consult the Secretary at War. Deserters ought most certainly 
to be tried by a court-martial, constituted by you of officers of the 
respective brigades to which deserters may belong, brought under 
guard to Erie for trial. This mode, liowever, would be more un- 
certain, tedious, and expensive than to have them tried at home, 
witiiiu their proper brigade bounds. On this point it would also be 
advisable for you to consult tlie Secretary at War. With regard to 
the pay of the soldiers, you will have to look to the Uuited States. 
The extra pay under the State law, will be paid at the expiration of 
their term of service, and arrangements will be made for that pur- 
pose. 

Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



AVAR OF 1812-14. 695 

N. B. BOILEAU TO COL. JOHX BINNS. 

Harrisburg, May 16, 1814. . 
To Col. John Binns : 

Sir : By direction of the Governor, I herewith enclose a copy of 
resolutions, passed by the Legislature at tlieir last session, directing 
medals to be presented to Capts. Perry, Elliott, and Yarnal, and the 
Pennsylvanians who volunteered on board the fleet on Lake Erie, 
with suitable emblematic devices thereon, with a request tliat you 
consult one or more of the most eminent artists in the city, and com- 
municate the result to him. Perhaps, one die might do for the offi- 
cers, and one for the privates, liaving the proper names of the per- 
sons engraved on the medals after they are struck. This, however, 
is submitted to your better judgment. 
Very respectfully, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO COL. JAMES rE:N'TON. 



Secretary's Office, 
Harrisburg, May 24, 1814. 

To Col. James Fenton : 

Sir : Yours to the Governor, of the 6th inst., has been received. 
By a reference to the general orders of February 7, 1814, you will 
perceive that the detachment under your command was called into 
service under a requisition of the President of the United States, 
and, consequently, in the service of the United States, and not of 
this State. To the United States, therefore, you are to look for 
monthly pay. The extra pay allowed by the Legislature was, in part, 
paid at the time of marching; the residue cannot be paid until the 
term of service has expired, or until the detachment shall be dis- 
charged under the authority of the United States. It will be well 
for you to write to the Secretary at War, requesting his attention 
to the subject of making arrangements to pay the men as it becomes 
due. 

Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 



696 WAR OF 1812-14. 

N. B. BOILEAU TO MR. FULLERTON. 



Secretary's Office, June 8, 1814. 
To Mr. FuLLERTOX, Judge Advocate : 

Sir: Yours of May ult. has been received, requesting some in- 
formation on the subject of courts-martial. The Governor does not 
think it proper to give any official instructions, as tlie detacliment 
of militia were called into tlie service of the United States, and are 
to be tried for delinquency under their hands. He thinks it most 
proper that the proper organ of that government should give the 
necessary instructions for carrying the laws into effect. On the 
subject of lines, his private opinion is that they ought to be regu- 
lated by the monthly pay now existing. This opinion is corrobo- 
rated by the act of Congress, passed April 8, 1814, (for which see 
Binn's paper of May last.) the second section of which declares, in 
all cases, " imposing a tine, limited by the amount of pay, the same 
shall be taken to have relation to the monthly pay existing at the 
time tiie offence was committed," and in the proceedings of courts- 
martial that have been submitted to the Governor, the rule adopted, 
I believe, has been variant. It appears, however, most rational 
that as the law of 179o took the monthly pay as the rule by which 
to regulate fines, the same rule should prevail in all cases, until a 
different rule should be pointed out by law. Witii regard to the 
otficer to whom the proceedings of courts-martial shall be sub- 
mitted for approbation, the sixty-fifth section of the articles of 
Avar directs that the otlicer who orders the court is the person to 
approve. In the former cases, the Governor directed them to be 
held. Some of the proceedings of those courts have been and some 
have not been laid before him for approbation. In the present in- 
stance, he gave no direct orders for tiie purpose. If Col. Fenton, 
the commanding otlicer, gave tlie orders for holding them, and the 
Governor is rather of opinion he is the proper officer to order them, 
or at least to sanction the order, then the proceedings ought to be 
submitted to him. The question, however, is attended Avith diffi- 
culty, and it would, perhaps, be advisable to consult the Secretary 
at War on the subject, and request specific instructions from him 
as to the mode of your procedure. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 

N. B. The above was enclosed to the care of William McClelland, 
Brigade Insi)ector.

GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO COL. JOHN BINNS. 



Harrisburg, June 24, 1814. 
To Col. John Binns : 

It having, by a resolution of the Legislature, devolved upon the 
Executive to procure medals commemorative of the victory obtained 
over a proud and vaunting enemy in a naval conflict on Lake Erie, 
by Capt. Perry, his officers, and amongst many other valiant men, 
by certain of the militia of Pennsylvania, who volunteered their ser- 
vices and fought on board the American squadron, on the ever mem- 
orable 10th of September, 1813, to be emblematically finished and in- 
scribed witli suitable devices for presentation to the said officers and 
volunteer militia aforesaid, and inasmuch as no personal commu- 
nication by reason of tlie distant residence of competent artists 
can be iiad, it becomes necessary to confide the said trust to a confi- 
dential person. I do, therefore, by these presents, appoint and 
authorize you, tiie said John Binns, aid-de-camp, to contract for, 
and have sunk the dies and executed the said medals, agreeably to 
the intent of the Legislature, and within the scope and purview of 
the before mentioned resolution, first having submitted the design or 
designs to me for my approbation and further order thereon. And 
I do also authorize you, by such ways and means as shall to you ap- 
])ear best adapted, to procure a designation by name of each indi- 
vidual of those of the Pennsylvania militia wiio patriotically vol- 
unteered their services as aforesaid, and if practicable, of their 

respective nlaces of residence.

To John Armstrong, Esq., Secretary at War: 

Sir : In the absence of the Governor, I deem it my duty to in- 
form you that your communication, containing a requisition for a 
detachment of fourteen thousand Pennsylvania militia, came to the 
office this morning, and immediately forwarded by express to the 
Governor, at Selinsgrove. Be assured the requisition will meet 
with all the promptness that circumstances possibly will permit. 
With high consideration and respect,

Harrisburg, July 18, 1814. 
To Capt. Henry Shipped : 

Sir : I liave had a conversation with the Governor on the snbject 
of procuriuff rifles. He lias determined to direct the Adjutant Gen- 
eral to procure the requisite number. You are, therefore, author- 
ized to state to such as are disposed to enter your company, that 
they will be supplied with rifles on loan ; you and your ofticers en- 
tering into bond to deliver them, when called upon by the Execu- 
tive for that purpose. I presume, that in case they were lost in ac- 
tual service, then, in that case, you would not be called to account 
tor them in any other way than to establish the fact of their being 
so lost. 

Very respectf idly, sir, 

Your obedient servant,

N. B. BOILEAU TO JOHN CONNELLY. 

Harrisburg, July 21, 1814. 
To John Connelly, Esq. : 

Sir : Yours of the 14th inst. was duly received. I have exam- 
ined the Minutes of Council and also the Journals of Congress, but 
can find nothing conclusive as regards the right of soil. In the 
Journals of Congress I perceive that in the year 1777 Congress ap" 
pointed a committee to wait on the Board of War of this State, to 
consult and view the works of Billingsport, and report wiiether or 
not they should be repaired or abandoned. In the Minutes of 
Council, of July 8, 1779, it appears that api)lication was made to 
the Board of War, by the garrison at Billingsport, for ordnance 
stores, to which application the Board replied: "That it is the 
opinion of this Board, tliat as the garrison of Billingsport are jdaced 
there at the request of Congress, and to preserve the communica- 
tion of the Delaware, and that post itself is the property of the 
United, (the word States omitted, I presume, by mistake,) the sup- 
plies may be justly deemed continental, and should the State, in 
tlie first instance, furnish them, it would be a proper charge to the 
United States." The above is all the information I am able to fur- 



t 

WAR OF 1812-14. 699 

nish on the subject. If any purchase has been made by Congress, 
the records of the State of New Jersey will most probably show it. 
Very respectfully, sir,

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO JOHN AHMSTRONG. 



Secretary's Office, JuJij 25, 1814. 
To John Armstrong, Esq., Secretary at War: 

Sir : The Governor has directed me to inclose to you copies of 
general orders issued by him in compliance with a late requisition 
for amilitia force from Pennsylvania by the President, communicated 
by yours, under date of the 4th instant. He has not, as you will 
perceive, designated places of rendezvous. He thinks it will be in 
time to do so in subsequent orders, which must issue before the troops 
can march. The threatened point of attack by the enemy it is prob- 
able will then be better ascertained, and a more prudent selection 
of place can be made. The repeal of our militia law of 1807, and 
its several supplements on the 1st of August next, the disannulling 
of all the militia commissions on tliat day, by a new law of the last 
session granted under the old law, except commissions of such offi- 
cers wlio may be in actual service, the ordering by the new law the 
holding of elections for officers by the militia after the said 1st day 
of August, the notice of election returns to be made and the pro- 
tracting to the fourth Monday of October next, the classification of 
the militia causes an almost total disorganization of our militia sys- 
tem between the 1st of August and the fourth Monday of October, 
and presents difficulties in yielding perfect compliance with the re- 
quisition of the President insurmountable. It is hoped, however, 
that the patriotism of the people will obviate the difficulty by a vol- 
untary tender of service, which the Governor has invited, growing 
out of the unaccountable oversight of tlie Legislature. 

It is strongly doubted whetlier any orders can be enforced under 
the present state of things. The requisition refers to the act of 
Congress, passed 28th February, 1795, under which militia can be 
held in service three months only, and to the law of 1814, which 
authorizes the President to keep them six months in service. The 
law of Pennsylvania, passed at the last session of its Legislature, 
requires the Governor to mention in general orders the period for 
which any militia ordered into service is to remain on duty. It is 



I 

700 WAR OF 1812-14. 

cU'sirable, tlu'rcfore, to know whether the requisition is intended for 
tliree or six month's service. The offices of Deputy Qutiiter-master 
General and Assistant Adjutant General are not recognized by any 
of our State laws. I have taken the liberty of enclosino- to you a 
copy of the militia law of this State, passed at the last session of the 
Legislature, from a perusal of which you will perceive the dirti- 
culties under which the executive at present labors in attempting 
to comply with the requisition. 

With high consideration and respect, 

I am 'sir, your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO JOHN ARMSTROXG. 



Secretary's Office, JtiJy 26, 1814. 
To John Armstrong, Esq., Secretary at War: 

Sir : I am instructed by the Governor to state to you that he has 
been informed that a number of militia men, to the amount of 
nearly thirty, belonging to a detachment of this State, now in the 
service of the United States, under the command of Col. Fenton, 
deserted and returned home. A number of them have been ar- 
rested and committed to prison. The Governor has been asked for 
instructions with regard to the proceedings to be had against them. 
He is of opinion, that, inasmuch as they were in the service of the 
United States, the United States only is competent to give direc- 
tions on the subject, and for the purpose the present communication 
is made. In a conversation with Maj. Wallace, of the United States 
Army, who is at tliis place, he stated that he should feel himself 
justified in taking charge of them, and returning them to the de- 
tachment from wliich they deserted, provided that it would not con- 
sume more time than what was allowed him send men away to who 
were under liis command at this place of rendezvous. But the dis- 
tance to Buffalo was so great, that it would require more time tfian 
he was authorized to employ in such service, and therefore could 
not do it without instructions from the War department. The ne- 
cessity of punishing officers of the above description is obvious, to 
prevent the evil consequences which must result from their being 
couunitted with impunity. I respectfully ask your attention to the 
subject. 

With high consideration and respect. 

Your obedient servant, 

K. B. BOILEAU.

GOV. SIMOX SNYDER TO JOHN ARMSTRONG. 



Harkisburg, Julij 28, 1814. 
To John Armstrong, Esq., Secretary at War: 

Sir : I deem it but necessary to lay before you a copy of a letter 
from Liberty Brown, President of the select council of the city of 
Philadelphia, representing the defenseless state of that port, and of 
the shores of the Delaware generally, to call your immediate atten- 
tion to that very important section of Pennsylvania, in the now very 
critical state of our country. I have taken the liberty of adding 
copies of documents transmitted to me at the same time, which have 
relation to the subject, and with which you may possibly not have 
been furnished. 

The council, it would seem, as long as twelvemonths since, prof- 
fered their aid to the United States in perfecting works of defence. 
Permit me to say that it is extremely desirable that the fears which 
appear so strongly to pervade the minds of the inhabitants of our 
metropolis ought, as speedily as possible, to be allayed, and to add 
assurances of consideration and respect. 

SIMON SNYDER. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO LIBERTY BROWN. 



Secretary's Office, July 28, 1814. 
Liberty Brown, Esq., President of the Sdcct Ccnmcil : 

Sir : Tiie Governor has duly received your communication dated 
July 19th, accompanied with the documents having relation to the 
defence, against an invasion by the enemy, of Philadelphia and the 
Delaware genenilly. lie has made it a subject of communication 
to the Secretary at War, and trusts that measures, prompt and effi- 
cient in their nature, will now be taken to quiet the fears of our me- 
tropolis. The Governor's personal attendance to public business 
has been almost unremitted for the last eight months, and his pre- 
sence, now more than ever, required at the seat of government. 
Neither can he perceive the necessity that he should, at this partic- 
ular time, be at any other place other than at this place. 
Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant,

r02 WAR OF 1812-14. 

N, B. BOILEAU TO WILLIAM S. SMITH. 



Secretary's Office, July 28, 1814. 
To William S. Smith, Esq., Judge Advocate: 

8in : The Governor cannot approve the proceedings of the court- 
martial of which you were Judge Advocate, for the following rea- 
sons : It does not appear, on the face of the proceedings, to what de- 
tachment the militia belonged who were fined ; whether they, or any 
of them, were to have served in consequence of the first, second, or 
third general orders; whether they were ordered on service before 
or subsequent to the 1st of December, 25i^. There were no march- 
ing orders on tlie 31st March, 1812. If antecedently to 1st December, 
1812, the fine may be $60; if subsequently, the fine may be as high 
as $9G. You will, hence, perceive the necessity of sucli designation 
as will fix, as well, the time the order or orders issued which were 
disobeyed, as the precise sum each individual is fined, for as it now 
stands it is uucertain whether those fined twelve months' pay shall 
pay 800+ or $96-|-. It, therefore, becomes necessary, before the 
Governor can act, that the proceedings have another heading and 
conclusion, signed by the President and yourself, containing the es- 
sential requisites above laid down. The court, certainly, ought to 
have tried all the delinquents and deserters, under whatever orders 
they marched, or were to have marched. It has been understood, 
(perhaps erroneously,) that one description of delinquents only was 
tried, and tlie rest, perhaps the most culpable, are permitted to es- 
cape. 

Yery respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU.

Sir : A certain Moses Scott and Andrew Wilson, have applied to 
the Governor for remission of fines imposed on them by a court of 
appeal in consequence of their refusal to obey the order of Gen. 
Mead calling out the militia en masse. They found their plea for 
a remission upon the ground, that they had but recently returned 
from a tour of six months' duty under the command of Gen. Crook, 



WAR OF 1812-14. 703 

in the northwestern army. I have been instructed by the Governor 
to inquire of you, wliether or not the facts are as stated by tlie ap- 
plicants, and if true, that you suspend all proceedings against them 
for the recovery of the fines, until he lias determined on the expe- 
diency and justice of granting their request. 
Very respectfully, 

Your obedient servant,

N^. B. BOILEAU TO GEN. JOHN WIL- ON. 



Secketary's Office, August 3, 1814. 
To Gen. John Wilson : 

Sm : Yours to the Governor, of the 25th ult., has been received. 
As there is no provision in the late militia law relative to division 
staff, the Governor does not think himself authorized to give any 
specific instructions on the subject. I understand it is tlie practice 
in the army of the United States for the General to select his aids 
from the commissioned officers of the line, and announcing their 
appointment in general orders, and directing that they be respected 
accordingly. In the militia law of the United States, passed 8tli 
May, 1792, section two, the Major Generals are entitled to two aids, 
to rank as Majors. Perhaps it would be competent for you, under 
that law, to appoint two aids, and to announce their appointment, 
and direct them to be respected accordingly by a general order. I, 
however, only suggest this, without being authorized to instruct 
you to adopt it. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU,

prehensions for the safety of the Port at Erie, has been received. 



704 WAR OF 1812-14. 

Presuming tliat j'ou have made a similar communication to the Sec- 
retary at War, the Governor instructs me to state to you that if the 
government of the United States thinks it necessary to make a re- 
quisition for a militia force for tiie protection of that post, he will, 
with as much promptness as practicable, comply with such requisi- 
tion. Should the danger apjjear so imminent as to preclude the 
probability of the militia being brought to that point in time by 
the ordinary mode of proceeding, the Governor has no doubt but 
the patriotism of the militia in the vicinity, if appealed to, would 
f urhish prompt and efficient means of defence.

Gentlemen : In f urtheranceof the laudable object contemplated 
by an association of individuals, for the purpose of forming a com- 
pany of artillery for the common defence, the Governor has author- 
ized me to state, in answer to your communication of yesterday, 
that as soon as a company shall have been constituted agreeably to 
law, he will assume the responsibility of ordering to be delivered to 
the company one or two pieces of brass ordnance out of the arsenal 
at Philadelphia, and a competent number of muskets, if required. 
Every other facility authorized by law or by usage will be given to 
the company, after it shall have been organized. In case of a call 
into actual service, the United States officer commanding in the 
district is authorized by a circular from the Department of War, 
under date of 22d ult., to furnish such arms, aecouterments, and 
stores as shall be conducive to the public service. No legal exist- 
ence can, in the opinion of the Governor, be given to the association 
under any other law than the militia law of the last session. 
Very respectfully, gentlemen.

N. B. BOILEAU TO GEN. WILLIAM H. WINDER. 



yECRETARY'S OFFICE, August 11, 1814. 

To Gen. William H. Winder : 

Sir : I am directed to acknowledge the receipt of yours of the 6th 
and Sth inst., to the Governor, on the subject of the quota of Penn- 
sj'lvania militia required to be lield in readiness for the service of 
the United States. In consequence of the present deranged state 
of our militia system, great difficulties occur to. the Executive. 
The only efforts that could be made towards a compliance with the 
requisition was, to order a designation, for service, of the requisite 
troops, under the militia law of 1807, before its repeal, Avhich took 
place on the 1st inst., and all commissions under that law then be- 
came void, except of such officers as might be on service on that day. 
The orders of the Governor under that law have issued, and are now 
executing. So soon as returns are made to him by the Adjutant 
General, you will be informed of the number and description of 
troops detached for service. By an unaccountable oversight of the 
Legislature at their last session, no legally organized militia can be 
completely made in Pennsylvania, until after the fourth Monday of 
October next. Before that time no classification of the militia is to 
take place, so that it is doubtful whether men can be coerced into 
service under any existing laws. Proceedings are now commenced 
for new officering and organization of the militia, under the new 
system. Anxious as the Governor is to furnish an efficient force, 
yet he cannot refrain from expressing a wish that no occasion may 
occur, requiring any militia from this State before an organization 
has been effectual under the existing laws, as he has strong fears, 
vmder present circumstances, that the principal reliance must be 
had on volunteers alone, and that many delinquencies will happen 
in what is deemed the ordinary militia, as it is apprehended it may 
occur with impunity. 

With regard to the place of rendezvous, the Governor has thought 
of flxhig it in the neighborhood of Peach Bottom Ferry, on the Sus- 
quehanna, near Maryland line, unless you should think proper to 
suggest some other point as more advantageous. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU.

Secretary's Office, August 12, 1814. 

To Capt. Henry SniPPEN,iaTicas«er; 

Sir : I received a letter from you some days since relative to the 
purchase of rifles. The Adjutant General was instructed to procure 
two hundred and fifty, of which one hundred was to be gotten at 
Lancaster, and one hundred at Philadelphia, and I was to endeavor 
to procure the remaining fifty at this place, wliich I am not able to 
do. I presume that the Adjutant Genieral has directed Maj. Light 
to attend to the business at Lancaster. Of this fact, however, you 
can readily inform yourself. I request you to procure fifty, the n um- 
ber I failed in getting here. It would be very desirable that all the 
rifies sliould be of the same calibre witli those of the United States. 
You will consider this letter as authorizing you to procure the num- 
ber of fifty rifles of the description I have mentioned, if practicable. 

Very respectfully, sir, &c., 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



:N'. B. BOILEAU TO GEN. WILLIAM GILLILAND. 



Secretary's Office, AuQust 12, 1814. 
To Gen. William Gilliland : 

Sir : At the instance of tiie Governor, I give you the following 
extracts from a letter recently received from the Secretary at War, 
in answer to one I wrote to him respecting deserters from Colonel 
Fenton's detachmants : "■ Such deserters as have been apprehended 
should be safely returned to the corps from which they deserted, to 
be tried conformably to the usages of service, there being no other 
difference between those and deserters from the regular army than 
the right of being tried by militia officers." 

The time of service of the detachment of militia now on the lines, 
and from which desertions occurred, is so short that deserters could 
not be now returned there for trial before the term would expire, 
and there being no militia officers now in commission of proper 
grade to form a court-martial, except those in actual service, it is 
the intention of the Governor to order a court for their trial, to be 
formed of their officers now in actual service, as soon as they return. 
Tlieir commissions, under the new law, are to continue valid until 



WAR OF 1812-14. 707 

thirty days after their tour of duty has expired . And a court formed 
of such material will, perhaps, be the most competent, and will be 
able to procure the best evidence with the least difficulty or delay. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant,

Sir : I wrote to you on the 28th ult., informing you that the Gov- 
ernor had made a communication to the Secretary at War respect- 
ing the defenceless state of the shores of tlie Delaware, predicated 
on the information derived from your letter of the 19th ult., and 
the documents accompanying it. I now enclose to you a copy of his 
answer to the Governor's communication, from which it appears 
tliat he has also written to the corporation on the same subject, a 
copy of which he furnished the Governor. It is confidently expect- 
ed that such arrangements will be speedily adopted as to quiet any 
fears excited in the minds of the people. 

Very respectfully, sir.

K. B. BOILEAU TO SAMUEL HART. 



Secretary's Office, August 19, 1814. 
To Samuel Hart, Esq. : 

Sir : In answer to yours of the 12th inst., I have to state that in 
case of your forming a rifle company and tendering your services, you 
will be supplied with rifles at the public expense, if they can be pro- 
cured. I endeavored to procure some at this place, but failed. The 
Adjutant General has directed one hundred to be manufactured at 
Lancaster, but they will not be completed before sometime in Octo- 
ber. He has also directed a like number to be made at Philadelphia. 



708 WAR OF 1812-U. 

Wlien tliey will be done I am not informed. You may consider this 
letter as authorizing you to procure fifty or sixty in tiie city or else- 
where, in case your company is formed. If you consult Mr. Binns 
he probably can inform you who is to inspect those manufactured 
in tlie city, and should you procure yours then the same person can 
inspect them, if at another place, you can suggest a proper inspec- 
tor, and he will be appointed for that purpose. When inspected and 
delivered, or ready for delivery, the manufacturer sending an order 
to me to receive the money accompanied by a certificate of the in- 
spector, the amount will be forwarded either to you or to him. It 
would be desirable to have all the State rifles alike, at least to cali- 
bre. Those already bespoken are to be three feet two inches in length 
of barrel, and to take one half ounce ball. I presume such are 
those of the United States. They ought to be plain, without unnec- 
essary ornament. Such, I understand, can be had at Lancaster for 
fifteen dollars each. Mr. Binns could probably inform you of the 
price in the city. Horns and pouches for ball you can manufacture 
yourselves, or procure them at small expense. It will be necessary 
for the commissioned officers of the company to give bond to the 
Governor for tlie value of the rifles, conditioned to re-deliver them 
when lawfully required, in good order. But if lost or injured in 
actual service, such circumstance will be duly considered. 
Yery respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO JOHN M. HYNEMAN. 



Secrktary's Office, August 23, 1814. 
To John M. Hyneman, Esq., Adjutant General: 

Sir : I received a letter yesterday from Gen. Winder, directed to 
the Governor, requiring a detachment of one regiment of militia, to 
consist of one thousand, to be marched to the city of Washington 
with tlie least possible delay. The Governor is absent; but I im- 
mediately sent the letter to him, and expect he will be here to-mor- 
row evening. It perhaps would be desirable to him that you should 
be here also, to facilitate as much as possible the marching of the 
detachment, to assist in the necessary arrangements. 
Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary.

N. B. BOILEAU TO JOHN M. HYNEMAN. 



Harrisburg, August 23, 1814. 

To John M. IIyne^at^^ , Adjutant General: 

Sir : Since writing to you this morning, I have received a letter 
from Gen. Winder, stating that the city of Washington is seriously 
menaced by the enemy, and urcting the Governor to send on all the 
force he can with the least possible delay. It will, therefore, be in- 
dispensably necessary that you should immediately repair to the 

seat of Government. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 

Secretary. 



SIMON SNYDER TO CAPT. GAWIN HENRY. 



Harrisburg, August 23, 1814. 
To Capt. Gawin Henry : 

Sir : You are hereby authorized to purchase, for the use of your 
rifle company, forty rifles, such as will bear inspection by a compe- 
tent judge, provided tlie whole expense shall not exceed six hundred 
dollars, which will be paid immediately on the delivery of the rifles 
at the office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth.

N. B. BOILEAU TO CHRISTIAN SPA YD. 



Harrisburg, August 25, 1814. 
To Christian Spayd, Esq., Brigade Inspector, &c. : 

Sir : A requisition having been made, under the authority of the 
President of the United States, upon the Governor, to order into 
immediate service five thousand militia from this State, for the de- 
fence of the city of Washington, menaced by the enemy, it is con- 
templated to form the detachment from the counties of Dauphin,

is required, in order to make tlie necessary arrangements. 
Very respectlully, sir, 

Your obedient servant,

written to Archil)ald S. Jordan, John Light, and Nathaniel W. 
Sample, Brigade Inspectors.] 



N. B. BOILEAU TO GEN. WILLIAM H. WINDER. 



IlARRiSBURG, August 26, 1814. 
Gen. William H. Winder : 

Sir : Tiie Governor, in compliance with the requisition contained 
in your letter, received the 23d instant, ordered into the service of 
the LTnited States five thousand men to rendezvous at York, in this 
State, on the 5tii day of September next. It becomes necessary to 
obtain information whetiier on that day the necessary tents and 
other camp equipage can l)e furnished at that place, the State not 
being able to furnish more than sufficient to accommodate one thou- 
sand men. There will also be a considerable deficiency of arms and 
accoutrements which the State cannot supply. 
Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N.B. BOILEAU, 
Note. — The following is Gen. Winder's letter on which the fore- 
going letter is predicated : 

William H. Winder to Gov. Simon Snyder. 

Washington City, August 18, 1814. 
His Excellency Simon Snyder, Oovernor of Pennsylvania : 

Sir : In consequence of the arrival of a large re-inforcement to the 
enemy at the mouth of the Potomac, I am authorized and directed 
by the President to require from you, immediately, the whole num- 
ber of the militia of Pennsylvania designed for this district out of 
the requisition of the 4th July last, to wit : Five thousand men. 

The letter of Secretary Boileau, see August 11, has just reached 
me. It is to be deplored that the situation of the militia of your 
State is such as Boileau represents. The spirit, however, of the 
people will, I hope, in this awful crisis, supply all defects of the laws, 
by voluntarily rallying them around the standard of their country. 



WAR OF 1812-14. 711 

The danger to the capital of our country is extreme, and I am au- 
thorized by the President, without regard to the designated quotas 
of the late requisition, to call such militia aid as may be necessary. 
In the present state of things, therefore, and the imminent danger 
which threatens my district, I must beg you to call out and send to 
me, from the counties nearest my district, either as volunteers, or 
in any otlier manner, all the force you can detach. This requisition, 
from the situation of your militia, and the pressing urgency of the 
occasion, is not clothed in the form whicli more leisure and a better 
arrangement of the militia would permit and require ; but, since we 
inust rely, it seems, principally upon tlie voluntary form, I have 
been unlimited, because, I fear, with all t!ie efforts which can be made, 
the number obtained will be short of the demand. 
I am, sir, with very great respect, 

Your obedient servant, 

WILLIAM H. WINDER, 
Brigadier General Commanding Tenth 3iiUtary District. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO .TOHN ARMSTRONG. 



Harrisburg, August 27, 1814. 
To John Armstrong, Esq., Secretary at War : 

Sir : I am directed by the Governor to enclose to you a copy of 
general orders issued yesterday. The letter of General Winder 
containing the requisition, under date of 18th inst., was not re- 
ceived until the evening of the 23d. The deranged state of our mi- 
litia system prevented more prompt compliance with the demand. 
To obviate, as far as practicable, the inconvenience of delay, the 
Governor has directed the flank and volunteer companies to push, on 
as rapidly as possible, without any regard to the time fixed on for 
the general rendezvous of the ordinary drafts. The commanding 
officers of the companies or detachments are instructed to report 
themselves, with the number of men, to General Winder, or the 
officer who may have the command of the troops in the service of 
the United States in the Tenth military district. 

The tents, camp equipage, as well as arms and accoutrements, be- 
longing to the State, being insufficient to accommodate the troops 
called into service, the Governor relies on the deficiency being sup- 
plied by the United States as promptly as practicable, to render the 
men comfortable and efficient. 

With high consideration and respect. 
Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



ri2 WAR or 1812-14. 

GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO N. B. BOILEAU. 



To N. B. BoiLEOU, Aid-de-Vamii : 

The landing upon our shores by the enemy hordes of marauders for 
the purpose avowedly to create by plunder, burning, and general de- 
vastation, all possible individual and public distress, gives scope for 
action to the militia of Pennsylvania by repelling that foe, and with 
just indignation seek to avenge the unprovoked wrongs heaped on our 
unoffending country. The militia, generally witliin the counties of 
Dauphin, Lebanon, Berks, Schuylkill, York, Adams, and Lancas. 
ter, and that part of Chester county which constitutes the Second 
brigade of the Third division, and those corps particularly, who, 
wlien danger first threatened, patriotically tendered their services 
in the field, are earnestly invited to rise, (as on many occasions Penn- 
sylvania has heretofore done,) superior to local feeling and evasives 
that might possibly be drawn from an imperfect military system, 
and to repair with that alacrity which duty commands, and, it is 
fondly hoped, inclination will prompt, to the several places of brigade 
or regimental rendezvous that shall respectively be designated by 
the proper officer, and thence to march to the place of general ren- 
devous. 

Pennsylvanians, whose hearts must be gladdened at the recital of 
the deeds of heroism achieved by their fellow-citizen soldiers now 
in arms on the lake frontier and within the enemy's country, now 
the occasion has occurred, will, with ardour, seek and punish that 
same implacable foe, now marauding on the Atlantic shores of two 
of our sister States. Under these impressions, and confident that 
obedience will be given to the pressing call of our country, the Com- 
mander-in-Chief issues the orders, following : 

General Orders. 

Harrisburg, August 26, 1814. 

To .John M. Hyneman, Adjutant General: 

Y''ou are commanded, in conformity to a retiuisition from the 
constituted authorities of the Union, to have prepared for march- 
ing, and to have marched to York town, in the county of York, the 
place of rendezvous, five thousand men, Pennsylvania militia, from 
the Second brigade, Third division, and from the Fourth, Fifth, and 
Sixth division, which detachment is to consist of volunteers wlio 
have, or who may tender their services, of fiank companies, in- 
fantry, and riflemen, who are to march in companies, and of drafted 
militia designated for service under general orders of the 22d July, 
last past, which shall be organized into one division and two brig- 
ades, (if not otherwise directed,) on the 5th day of September next. 



WAR or 1812-14. 713 

agreeably to law, and conformably to the regulations prescribed for 
the United States Army. 

For the command of which division I designate Maj. Gen. Watson 
and Brig. Gens. Jolm Forster and John Addams. The Major Gen- 
eral and the officers and men under him are to obey the commands 
and execute the orders of Gen. William Winder, commandant for 
the United States within the Tenth militia district. 

Tlie troops may be marched from York, either in division after 
organization, or in smaller bodies before organization, if it further 
the service and Gen. Winder shall so direct, and to such place as by 
him shall be designated. 

The term of service to be six months unless sooner discharged by 
the authority of the United States. 

SIMON SNYDER, 
Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 



JOHN M. HYXEMAN TO GEORGE WELSH. 



Adjutant General's Office, 
Hakrisburg, August 26, 1814. 

To George Welsh, 'Esq., Inspector Second Brigade, Fifth Division : 
Sir : Agreeably to a general order of this day, you will have pre- 
pared for marching and have marched to York town, in the county 
of York, the place of rendezvous, the quota of militia of your bri- 
gade, which you were ordered to have detached and organized, by 
a general order of the 22d July last, on the 5th day of September 
next. 

The infantry and riflemen in your brigade are considered as a part 
of the quota, and will march in companies. The officers and men 
must be ( as far as practicable) armed and furnished with blankets 
and knapsacks. 

JOHN M. HYNEMEN, 
Adjutant General, P. M.

To Georoe Welsh, Esq., Inspector Second Brigade, Fifth Division : 
SiK : You will direct such volunteers and flank companies as soon 
as practicable to march on to\\jards Baltimore, or to sucli other 
point as your information may enable you to judge most proper at 
this crisis, without any regard to the time fixed for the general 
rendezvous, and direct the commanding officer of each company or 
detachment to report himself to Gen. Winder, or any other officer 
counnanding under the United States. 

By order of the Governor.

N. B. BOILEAU TO A. S. JORDAN. 



Harrisburg, August 27, 1814. 
To A. S. -Jordan, Esq., Brigade Inspector: 

Sir: The Adjutant General stated he would write to you with 
regard to making arrangements to provide provisions for the men 
as they shall arrive at the place of rendezvous. If he has not, you 
are hereby authorized to employ some suitable persons for that 
purpose. I have written to Mr. McCoy, at Carlisle, contractor for 
the Pennsylvania district, on the same subject. You can commu- 
nicate also with him. The Adjutant Genei'al will be at York in 
a few days, provided "with the means to defray any expenses that 
may have occurred. All the camp equipage belonging to the State 
is at Philadelphia. It has been ordered to York. It will not be there 
until near the close of next week, and is not more than sufficient 
to supply one thousand. The Secretary at War has authorized the 
delivery of such articles by the commander of the district. Gen. 
Winder commands the district of Maryland, the Tentli. The Secre- 
tary at War is proliably at Fredericktown, and perhaps Gen. Win- 
der is in that neigh borliood, to either of whom application might 
be made for supplies. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU. 
Secretary.

Harrisburg, August 27, 1814. 
To Captain William Hamilton : 

Sir : The tender of service by .you and the other gentlemen com- 
posing the corps is cheerfully accepted by the Governor, who directs 
me to express to you and, through you, to the company, the high 
sense he feels of yoin- patriotism exhibited at this alarming crisis. 
You are hereby authorized to purchase the requisite number of rifles 
to supply the company, the expense of which will be immediately 
paid at the treasury, on the production of the necessary vouchers 
for their having been delivered to you. The earlier you march the 
more gratifying it would be to the Governor. The commissions will 
be made out with the least possible delay and forwarded to you. A 
letter was written to Major Light yesterday requesting his imme- 
diate attention at this place, for the purpose, among other things, of 
furnishing liim with the means of defraying any expenses that may 
be incurred in the performance of his duties. By him I hope to 
have the opportunity of sending the commissions. 
Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary.

General Orders. 

Harrisburg, 21111 August, 1814. 

To N. B. BoiLEATJ, Aid-de-Camp : 

The recent destruction of the capital of the United States, the 
threatened and probable conflagration of the metropolis of sister 
States, and the general threatening aspect of affairs, wai'ranting 
the opinion that an attack is meditated by the enemy on the shores 
of the Delaware, the Governor, to guard against surprise, and to 
have ready an efficient force of freemen to repel the enemy in case 
of such an event, orders and directs that the militia generally, within 
the counties of Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware, Ches- 
ter, Lancaster, Dauphin, Lebanon, Berks, Schuylkill, Lehigh, North- 
ampton, and Pike, (in addition to those drafted and designated for 
the service of the United States, under orders of the 22d of -July, 



716 WAR OF 1812-14. 

who iiro already subject to the orders of Gen. Bloomfield,)be held in 
readiness to march, at a moment's warning, to such place as may be 
named in subsequent orders tliat will issue, if the exigencies of our 
countrj' sliall re([uire. 

The several IJrigade Inspectors, within their respective bounds, 
are commanded to execute promi)tly this order. The Generals and 
other officers are urged to assist in the providing of equipments for 
tiie men. Those for whom arms cannot be found, within the re- 
spective brigade bounds, will, it is presumed, be furnished by the 
United States, at the place of rendezvous. 

It is confidently expected that the ardor and love of country which 
l>ervade the hearts of Pennsylvanians, at the present alarming crisis, 
will induce many to form themselves into volunteer corps, and im- 
mediately to march for Philadelphia. It is thus a proper spirit, to 
resist an intolerant foe, will be evinced and many difficulties obvi- 
ated. The Governor promises himself the satisfaction of meeting 
there an host nerved with resolution to live free or die in defence of 
their liberties and their country. He will act with them in any 
capacity for which his talents shall fit him.

Governor of the Commonicealtli of Pennsylvania.

Secretary's Offce, August 27, 1814. 
To Robert McCoy, Esq., Contractor : 

Sir : In compliance with a requisition made under the autliority 
of the United States, the Governor has ordered into actual service 
five thousand men, to rendezvous at York on tlie 5th of next month. 
It becomes necessary to apprize you of this circumstance, that you 
may make the necessary arrangements to supply them with rations. 
It would be proper for you to communicate with Archibald S. Jor- 
dan, Inspector of the First brigade. Fifth division, as the flank and 
volunteer comi)anies are directed to move on as rapidly as possible 
witliout any regard to the time fixed for the general rendezvous. 
The whole detachment will not probably be there at the same time.

State arms and one hundred and eighty-nine cartouch-boxes, for the 
use of tlie militia who may volunteer their services to marcli to the 
defence of Baltimore, by John Sandei-son. I enclose to you fifteen 
dollars to pay the said Sanderson, on delivery of the arms and boxes, 
it being the balance for his amount, for which you will please take 
bis receipt, and enclose it to me.

GOV^ SIMON SNYDER TO GEN. JACOB EYSTER. 



Harkisburg, August 27, 1814. 
Gen. Jacob Eyster : 

Sir : To aid, as far as our scanty means will permit, the patriotic 
citizens of Gettysburg and its vicinity, who have resolved to march 
into a neighboring State, and there to assist its citizens to defend 
against the enemy, the important city of Baltimore, threatened 
with destruction, I have taken immediate measures that there be 
transmitted to your care (300) three hundred muskets, (out of about 
six hundred at this place.) Horsemen's swords and pistols the State 
possesses not any, nor have we any camp equipage but what remains 
in Philadelphia, which is ordered to York town, to supply, as far as 
it will go, five thousand militia from this State, ordered to rendez- 
vous there on the 5th September, and are to be placed under the 
command of General W. Winder, the commandant for the LTnited 
States in the Tenth military district. That ofiicer is ordered by the 
Secretary at War to furnish militia the articles you desire. To him, 
or to the Secretary at War, both of whom I presume are near you, 
I would advise an application whilst the volunteers are organizing. 
The honorable feeling which now pervades the breast of Americans 
it is hoped will induce a submission to unavoidable inconveniences, 
and those privations inseparable from war, and induce, also, a reli- 
ance, with confidence, for remuneration on the justice of their 
country. You will please to receipt to the carter for the muskets 
and cartridge-boxes, and transmit a duplicate thereof to the Secre- 



718 WAR OF 1812-14.

the contents of this letter to the gentlemen whose resolves you en- 
closed to me. For them, and for yourself, accept assurances of high 
respect.

GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO CHARLES RIDDLE. 



Harrisburg, Aitgmt 28, 1814. 
To Charles Riddle, Esq. : 

Sik: Impressed with tlie importance of the subject of your com- 
munication, under date of the 26th instant, and of information 
previously received through other channels, I have issued general 
orders (of which 1 do myself the honor to inclose a copy) for the as- 
sembling at Philadelphia a military force, which, I trust, will prove 
sufficient to protect the city of Philadelphia, and for the repelling 
of any enemy that may be tlirown on our sliore. The other matter 
contained in your communication in the nature of queries, can be 
answered when an investigation and closing of the accounts ])y the 
Adjutant General has been had. Nor can I perceive it to be of im- 
portance to know whether a portion of any specific appropriation is 
to be applied for the defence of any particular section of the State. 
The present militia law, however, imperfect in many of its parts it 
is discovered to be, in its twenty-ninth section has made provision 
commensurate with any necessary expenditure connected with the 
militia system. So soon as the necessary arrangements are here 
made, to permit my absence, I shall have the honor to visit Pliila- 
delphia. 

I beg you accept for the committee of defence, and for yourself, 
personally, assurances of consideration and esteem.

who is appointed paymaster to the detachment to rendezvous at 
that place, or in tlie hands of Archibald S. Jordan. It may not be 
Improper to mention to you that, in consequence of the alarm at 
the city of Philadelphia for the safety of that place, and the press- 
ing solicitations of the citizens, the Governor and myself propose 
leaving this place to-morrow for the city, to assist in making ar- 
rangements for the better security of that section of the IState.

COMMITTEE OF DEFENCE OF PHILADE].PHIA TO GOV. 

SNYDER. 



Philadelphia, August 30, 1S14. 
2b his Excellency the Governor of Pennsylvania : 

Sir : The Committee of Defence were this day informed, that, by 
an order from the Adjutant General of this Commonwealth, dated 
the 27th inst., the Brigade Inspectors of the two brigades of the 
First division of Pennsylvania militia, have been required to for- 
ward to York, all the camp equipage, &c. in their possession, and 
the Deputy Quarter-master General has been required to forward 
to the same place, all the arms and ammunition belonging to the 
Commonwealth in this quarter. 

The Committee presume that this order was given before there 
was a knowledge of the necessity there might be for an assemblage 
of militia in this part of the State, and tliey have therefore in- 
structed us to represent to your Excellency that all the arms, am- 
munition, and camp equipage thus ordered, are requisite here, and 
that there removal might be attended with the most serious injury, 
and to express their hope that your Excellency will see the propriety 
of immediately countermanding the order. 

The person who bears this letter will wait for your Excellency's 

answer. 

We are, with great respect, 

Your Excellencey's most obedient, 

GEORGE LATIMER,

P. S.— Under an impression that your Excellency will be here on 
Thursday, we have concluded to send this by mail.

To Messrs. Thompson Browne, James L. Craft, and Duncan 

S, Walker, Carlisle: 

I have received your letter dated yesterday ; but, as the Governor 
and Secretary of the Commonwealth have gone from this place, in 
consequence of a very pressing invitation from the councils of Phil- 
adelphia, to consult on the best means for defending that city against 
the enemy, I am not able now to answer your letter addressed to him. 
It shall be immediately forwarded, by this day's mail, to the Gover- 
nor, at Philadelphia, and as soon as I am authorized, I will lose no 
time in communicating his answer to you. 
I am, very respectfully.

Sir: Tlie Governor has directed me to submit, through you, to 
the Committee of Defence, the following enquiries, which, he flat- 
ters himself, the committee will, as early as possible, answer. 

He prefers written communications for many reasons, amongst 
wliicli are this obvious one, that misapprehensions frequently arise 
from verbal communications. 

First. What is the present state of defence, other than that au- 
thorized by Government, as to men, arms, ammunition, equipments, 
and camp equipage ? 

Secoitd. How many men, and what species of force are (under 
the present state of information as to the enemy) deemed necessary 
for defence ? 

Third. Have any plans of defence been agreed upon independ- 
ently of, or in conjunction with the United States Government, 
and how far (if any have been "agreed upon) have they been exe- 
cuted, and what is expected from the Commonwealtii ? 



WAR OF 1812-14. 721 

Fourth. What provision is made by the committee, or by the 
United States, for the volunteers from the country, as to quarters, 
rations, and forage.

SHARP. 



Philadelphia, September 2, 1814. 

To Jacob G. Tryon and Daniel Sharp, Brigade Inspectors^ Sec- 
ond and First Brigades, First Division : 

Sir : The Governor has directed me to enquire of you what pro- 
gress has been made in the purcliase and pi'ocuring by you, in your 
capacity as Deputy Quarter-master General, of the several articles 
of military stores and equipments, directed to be purchased and 
procured under general orders of the 18th July last. You will sus- 
pend, until otherwise instructed, the transportation from this city 
to York, under orders of the Adjutant General of the 27th August 
last, any ammunition, camp equipage, arms, or other military stores. 
To prevent unauthorized interferences, it is necessary to state that 
there is no officer known to our laws other than Brigade Inspectors, 
or the deputy or deputies of the Adjutant General, in any of the

REMOXSTRANUE OF PHILADELPHIA VOLUNTEERS. 



Camp Bloomfield, September 2. 1814. 

Brig. Gen. Bloomfield, Commander-in-Chief of the Fourth Mili- 

tarij District : 

r>iR : The undersigned officers of the volunteer corps now en- 
camped at Kennett Square, beg leave to address you on a subject 
closely connected with the welfare of the companies under their 
command. 

If the services exjtected from them are worth exacting, they con- 
ceive that they should be enabled correctly to perform them, and 
finding obstacles to their improvement and utility, they would be 
wanting in their duty to the cause in which they serve were they to 
omit to represent them. 

Tliey left tiie city under an impression, founded no less upon their 
own belief in the incompetency of the commanding officer of the 
draft of Pennsylvania militia, than upon assurances, derived as they 
understood from yourself, that he would have no opportunity to 
expose their iionor or their lives. 

They were informed that they should either be permitted to select 
their own leaders, or that officers of the LTnited States Army, on 
whose experience, talents, and tried integrity they migiit clieerfully 
and confidently repose, would direct their operations. Having been 
disappointed in these expectations, they trust that it will be no de- 
parture from military duty or violation of respect for tiieservice 
in which they are now enrolled, to suggest their earnest and united 
desires that tlie person Avhonow officiates as the commanding officer 
at tliis camp, may be superseded in his command. Of liis utter in- 
competency, arising perhaps principally from a total want of ex- 
perience, they are compelled to express their firmest conviction. 
Whether the battalion be designed promptly to meet a well ap- 
pointed and experienced enemy, or to undergo a course of dicipline 
prei)aratory for future services, they conceive tlieniselves equally in- 
terested in a change. To your own sense of what is due to tiiem 
and their corps tliey submit these suggestions, and merely will add 
that if consistent with the arrangements of your district, they will 
gladly i)lace themselves under the command of Maj. Charles \V. Hun- 
ter, a gentleman who has been long known to some of them, and 
whose deportment, since their immediate connection with him be- 
gan, has inspired them all with the utmost confidence. 

We have the honor to be, with the utmost respect, 
Sir, your most obedient servants,

CONDY RAGUET TO THOS. CADWALLADER. 



Camp Bloomfield, 
Kennett Square, Septemhfr 3, 1814. 

Tiios. CADWALLADER, Esq. : 

Dear Sir ; I take the liberty of making a communication to you, 
wliicli, though not to be considered as official, may, perliaps, be ser- 
viceable to you as a member of the sub-committee of defence. 

Colonel Berry made his appearance here on the 1st inst.,and took 
command of this encampment on the 2d. He was accompanied by 
Major Bozarth, as commander of the battalion of militia. Imme- 
diately on the Colonel's arrival the officers of tlie battalion of vol- 
unteers held a conference, whicli resulted in a resolution to protest 
against his continuance in command, and, in consequence thereof, 
a remonstrance to General Bloomfleld upon the subject was pre- 
pared and signed by all the officers present in the camp, without a 
single exception. In order to save the feelings of Mr. Berry, a copy 
of the address and signatures was communicated to him, accom- 
panied by a note, in which it was stated tliat if he would resign, the 
remonstrance would be suppressed. He has made no communica- 
tion in answer thereto, and the document has been, officially, handed 
to Major Hunter, the Brigade Major of General Bloomfleld. 

Yesterday Major Vogdes appeared, and it was announced on pa- 
rade this morning, in orders, that he would take command of the 
battalion of volunteers precisely at twelve o'clock. Captain Bid- 
die and myself felt it incumbent upon us to state to him the senti- 
ments which were entertained by the officers upon this occurrence, 
and explicitly declared to him, that "there was not an officer or sol- 
dier in the battalion of volunteers that would march into action 
under Colonel Berry, or either of his field officers, and that the 
proper course for them to pursue was to withdraw from their re- 
spective, commands." 

Now as these gentlemen have not yet manifested any intention 



WAR OF 1812-14. 725 

of this kind, it is absolutely necessary that these officers be remov- 
ed, or tlie trooi)S at this encampment cannot be viewed as an effect- 
ive force. Tlie difficulty, I tliink, can be remedied in one way only, 
which is to get the Major General to organize the volunteers now 
in camp, and tliose expected to join us, into a regiment. This 
would, perhaps, b*^ practicable, and would, I think, be satisfactory 
to all. I am clearly of opinion that the Committee of Defence 
should interefere in this business, and endeavor to remove the ob- 
stacles which are so injurious to the public service. 

Captain Biddle is well, and is acquainted with my intention to 
write to you upon this subject. 

Yours respectfully, 

COXDY RAGUET. 

Dear Sir: I perfectly concur with Captain Raguet in tlie opinion 
he has expressed, as to the immediate necessity of organizing the 
volunteers at this camp into a regiment, as the only mode of ren- 
dering our services efficient. Should the present militia field-officers 
continue in command here, the most alarming confusion will cer- 
tainly take place. 

Most truly yours, 

CLEMEXT C. BIDDLE.

that he has ordered a suspension, until further orders, of the order 
by the Adj utant General, dated 27th same month, directing the trans- 
portation , to York town, of camp equipage, &c. It is deemed proper 
that the committee be informed that no officer coming under the 
denomination of Deputy Quarter-master General can exist under 
the present militia law.

Brig. Gen. Joseph Bloomfield : 

Sir : It is of importance at this eventful crisis to know^ how much 
of the ordnance, small arms, ammunition, military stores, and 
camp equipage now deposited in the United States arsenal near this 
city, can, in case of emergency, be furnished on your order for the 
Pennsylvania militia, in conformity to any order you may have re-, 
ceived from the Secretary at War. If, as is represented, there are 
in the arsenal a quantity of rilles, the best weapon in the hands of 
undisciplined men, it is desired to know whether any of them and 
how many can be had on loan, or on any other terms, for the use of 
such of our militia who are now or that may eventually be ordered 
into service. 

Very respectfully, 

Your obedient servant,

Sir : ^Vhen the Governor had the pleasure to see you at his quar- 
ters, you mentioned that you knew of a number of musivets in this 
city tiiat were for sale; and as he is determined to purciiase some 
good arms for the Commonwealth, he requests, through me, the 
favor of you to let him know the name of the person or persons who 
have such to dispose of. 

I am, very respectfully, 

Your obedient servant,

N. B. BOILEAU TO JOHN REITZEL. 



Philadelphia, September 3, 1814. 
To John Reitzel, Esq. : 

Sir : Your letter of the 31st ult. was not delivered to the Govern- 
or till yesterday, consequently you could not have an answer within 
the period requested. 

As the militia that are drafted, as part of the detachment which 
are ordered to rendezvous at York town on Monday next, will have 
marched before this reaches you, it is not now necessary to answer 
that part of your letter which relates to those that have been drafted. 
I shall, therefore, only observe that, if the contemplated volunteer 
corps bring themselves within the provisions of the militia law, 
commissions will be granted to the officers that may be elected. 

The patriotic feeling of you and your associates is highly and 
justly appreciated by the Governor, and he trusts that your example, 
and that of others in Lancaster, will have the happy effect to excite 
in may more the like spirit which has influenced your conduct. 
1 am, sir, respectfully, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU.

N. B. BOILEAU TO SECRETARY AT WAR. 



Philadelphia, September 3, 1814. 
To Secretary at War : 

Sir : T am directed by the Governor to apprise you, that one 
thousand muskets, deposited in the United States arsenal, near this 
city, assij^ned to Pennsylvania as part of the quota from the United 
States, have by mistake, he presumes, been delivered by the order 
of Gen. Bloomfield to a detachment of militia from this city, and 
now in the service of the United States. Before the Governor was 
informed of the disposition of the arms by Gen. Bloomfield, he had 
directed them to be transported to York town to be placed in the 
hands of the militia who were ordered to rendezvous there on the 
5th instant, in consequence of a requisition made by Gen. Winder, 
and. who were not furnished before their arrival at that place. 

The consequences likely to result from this measure, may prove 
detrimental to the public service, unless the same number of arms 
be immediately delivered by the United States in their stead, at 
York, the place of rendezvous of the detachment. 
With high respect and consideration, 

I am, sir, your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU,

JAMES MONROE TO GOV. SIMON SNYDER. 



War Department, Septeiniber 4, 1814. 
His Excellency the Governor of Pennsylvanm : 

Sir : The uncertainty existing, respecting the movements of the 
enemy, at this time, calls the attention of the government, with 
much interest, to those cities which are most likely, by their wealth 
and importance, to invite an invasion. Among these Piiiladelphia 
holds a distinguished place. Everything will be done for their de- 
fence that may be practicable. 

The distance not being too great, the force called into service for 
the defence of each, acting in combination, must, so far as circum- 
stances will permit, contribute to the defence of the whole. I have 
the honor to enclose you a copy of a letter to General Bloomfield, 
wiiich will explain more fully the views of the President on this 
subject, and to assure you that I shall be happy to communicate 
with you fully on the measures which may be deemed necessary for 
the defence of our country, and to cooperate with you in tlie same. 
I have the honor to be. 

Your Excellency's most obedient servant, 

JAS. MONROE. 



JAMES MONROE TO GOV. SIMON SNYDER. 



War Department, September ^, 1814. 
His Excellency the Governor of Pennsylvania: 

Sir : By accounts from tlie mouth of the Patuxent, at nine 
o'clock last niglit, the enemy's fleet, with all their troops on board, 
was still suspended there, awaiting, as was supposed, the return of 
the squadron from the Potomac. Every effort which the means in 
possession of the Government have permitted has been made, and 
is still making, to cut off their retreat and destroy this squadron. 
Many gallant officers of the navy have luiited their exertions with 
those of the land forces in this undertaking, and much hope is en- 
tertained that it will not be unvailing. It is possible that the force 
at the mouth of the Patuxent may, in case this squadron should be 
put in imminent danger, attempt to relieve it. Such an attempt 
would only be made by an attack on our batteries, which might be 
approached either by land from the Patuxent to the Potomac, or 
by sailing up the Potomac. For either of these movements, the 
best preparations will be made here that circumstances will permit. 



730 WAR OF 1812-14. 

It is equally possible that tlie force at the mouth of the Patuxent 
lias already moved either against Baltimore, Philadelphia, Xorfolk, 
or Riciimond. That it will soon move against some one of those 
places cannot well be doubted. Desolation is its object, and the 
wider it is spread the more completely will that object be accom- 
plished. It is known that the enemy promises themselves, from the 
waste of our country and dist^'ess of our people, a base submission 
to their will. Little do they understand the true character of this 
virtuous and free nation. They deceived themselves by those vis- 
ionary calculations in our i-evolution, and the result of this contest 
will prove that the American people are not less faithful to their 
principles than the British Government is to its vindicative and 
barbarous policy. 

Should either of these cities be invaded, all possible support will 
be given to it by the Government. The force already organized in 
the defence of each will be relied on principally, especially in the 
first instance, for the purpose. 

But as the enemy, in making either the distinct object of their 
vengeance, relieving the others, for the moment, from the pressure, 
a. portion of the force assembled for the defence of the latter may 
be spared for that of a neigliboring sister town. Tiiis object will 
be attended by the Government in due time; and I state it, that 
having it view, you may be enabled to give it the best etfeet which 
circumstances will permit. 

The city of Phibidelphia, I am aware, offers by its wealth a strong 
inducement to the enemy to make an attempt on it. Its population, 
however, being great, its organized and well trained force consider- 
able, much confidence is entertained that it will make a defence 
worthy the high character which it sustains with tlie nation. 

To repel such danger, it will be necessary for you to have your 
force in the best possible preparation for action ; to watch the 
enemy's movements in every direction, and to communicate to me 
without delay every circumstance deserving of attention. 
I have the honor to be, with 

Great respect, your very obedient servant, 

JAMES MONROE.

Sir : Your letters of August 27th and 28th, have been received. 
Orders have been given for depositing at Carlisle, ten tliousand 
stand of arms and equipments, to meet the exigencies of the times 
in supplying such militia as maybe called into the actual service 
for the defence of the sea board. These will be made subject to the 
requisition of the Governor of Pennsylvania, with the provision that 
such as may be received must be receipted for conformably to the 
provisions of the act for arming the whole body of militia. 

Such arms and equipments as may be taken from the public stores 
at Philadelphia, must be receipted for in the same way. 
I am, sir, very respectfully.

JAMES TRIMBLE TO JOHN M. HYNEMAN. 



Harrisburg, Septemher 5, 1814. 
To John M. Hyneman, Adjutant General: 

Sir : I acknowledge the receipt of your letter by Mr. Bryan. 
About an hour before tlie Governor left tliis place on Tuesday last, 
I had some conversation with him about sending some V)lank com- 
missions to the place of rendezvous ; at first lie seemed inclined to 
order them on, but at lengtli, upon further consideration*, lie con- 
cluded that it would not be necessary, and directed me to fill up and 
issue those that he had signed from time to time as returns would 
be made to tlie office. This I have done, as far as returns have been 
made by the inspectors, without waiting for returns from you. 
Those returns must be made by you, hereafter, from the returns we 
have. Considering, however, the urgency of the business, the delay 
that may happen in writing for the returns, and afterwards sending 
on the commissions, and being satisfied that you will not issue the 
commissions without having regular returns and vouchers, I have 
ventured to forward to you, by express, fifty blank commissions for 
officers ■elected under tlie provision of the militia law for seven years, 
and thirt}-two of another description, intended for officers of vol- 



732 WAR OF 1812-14. 

unteer corps that have engaged for short jieriods, and wlio are not 
within tlie districts called upon or order(Hl into service, for which 
you will give the express a receipt, expressing the number of blanks 
and descri])tion of the commissions. Of all the commissions that 
you issue, you will please to forward to this office a correct list to be 
entered in your books. 

I am, respectfully.

you are tlie cliairman, contemplating an aitplication by him to the 
Secretary at War, for permission to the city of Philadelphia to en- 
list three regiments of infantry, to be employed in the service of 
the United States in this military district, is not, in his opinion, 
sufficiently explicit on the head of expense which may be incurred 
by such a measure, in the first instance, nor as to what is eventu- 
ally expected from the United States. 

Very respectfully, sir.

By this you will perceive a deposit of arms and equipments is made 
at Carlisle, for supplying tlie militia called into tne service of tlie 
United States, and made subject to the requisition of the Governor. 
His requisition is enclosed. The next day after the Governor issued 
his orders I wrote to the Secretary at War and to General Winder, 
informing them of tlie deficiency of arms, equipments, and camp 
equipage, for the detachment ordered to rendezvous at York, urging 
that provision should be made to meet that deficiency. I fear, how- 
ever, that, owing to the confusion that probably occurred in conse- 
quence of the disasters at Washington, it has not been made. I 
trust, however, that the patriotism of the men under your command 
is such that they will submit cheerfully to privations that were out 
of the power of the Governor, or the United States, to prevent. It 
would be gratifying to the Governor to hear from you. 
Very respectfully, sir,

JAMES MONROE TO GEN. BLOOMFIELD. 



War Department, 
Washington, ylpri/ 6, 1814. 
Brig. Gen. Bloomfield, FhVadelphia : 

Sir : I have liad the honor to receive your letter of the 2d of this 
montli, by Col. Duane, Adjutant General of the Fourth District. 

Considering the city of Philadelpliia by its wealth and imimrtance 
a principal object of the enemy in the desolating and barbarous sys! 
tem of warfare wliich it has adopted, my attention was diawii to it, 
with a view to its protection, as soon as I took charge, by request of 
tiie President of this Department, although at the time many of its 
duties, i)articularly the operations in the neighborhood of this city, 
pressed heavily on me. Tlie passage of the enemy's squadron down 
the Potomac, notwithstanding tiie opposition made to it, while it 
has relieved us from pressure here, increase our apprehension for 
other exposed cities. 

It is the decided opinion of the President, that preparation for 
the defense of the city of Philadeli)hia should be made without de- 
lay, and on an enlarged scale, looking, nevertheless to important 
and essential points, and carrying tlie measures adopted into effect 
with the utmost degree of economy. 



WAR OF 1S12-14. 735 

The approach of the enemy to the city by water ought to be ren- 
dered utterly impracticable, which it is presumed may be soon done. 
For tills purpose a strong work at the pea patch appears to me to be 
an object of great importance, another at Mud Island, cannot fail 
to be very useful. Batteries on the shore contiguous to those places 
may be necessary for their support ; and at other points slight works 
for the annoyance of the squadron as it moves up, should the at- 
tempt be made. 

Gen. Swift, aided by Gen. Williams, will be able to decide on the 
proper plans in each instance, and to execute what may be decided on. 
What works it may be proper to erect for the defense of the city by 
land, it is impossible for me to suggest at tiiis distance, with such 
information as I possess of the land force which the enemy may take 
against it, and of the force which we may have there to opi)ose it, 
my decided opinion is that wherever the enemy may land, we should 
have a force there to oppose them ; that we sliould attack tliem by 
light parties, if not at the moment equal to them in tlie field, and never 
give them a moment's rest. The enemy's force at this time ought 
not to be estimated at less than eight thousand men ; the soundest 
opinion seems to be, that they brought up against this city not less 
than five, and many persons who had good opportunities of obtain- 
ing correct information think tiiat it exceeded six. Hence then some 
re-inforcements have been received, and we ought to count on 
others. I think, therefore, that the preparation for the defense of 
the city of Philadelphia should be formed on that scale. It may 
not be necessary to call the whole force alluded to immediately into 
the field, but a respectable force from counties at some distance, 
which could not be brought into service in time to repel the inva- 
sion after it should be made, should the call be so long delayed, 
ought to be assembled, and a camp formed of it at some proper point 
without the city, bearing on the quarter from which the enemy may 
be expected to approach. The precise point at which tliis camp 
ought to be formed I cannot pretend to designate. I am inclined 
to think that it ought to be on some commanding healthy ground 
between the Schuylkill and the lieights of the Brandywine. Siiould 
such a camp be formed of a force drawn from counties not immedi- 
ately in the neighborhood of the city, and every arrangement neces- 
ary for it, and for the additional force which the contemplated inva- 
sion may require be emplo}' ed, it is presumed that the additional force 
to be drawn from the city and the neighboring counties may in tljat 
event soon be brought into activity. By this suggestion I do not 
mean that any force now collected not exceeding the number requi- 
site from whatever quarters drawn, should at this time be dismissed. 
We must keep togetlier a nucleus, at least of an army, witli every 
necessary equipment sufficiently strong to oppose the enemy on his 
landing, till you can get the whole together to overwhelm him. 



736 WAR OF 1812-14. 

The force assembled must be armed at once, and arms must be 
collected for any force which may be hereafter called into the field. 
The Commissary General will be instructed to, procure such arms 
and tents as are necessary. 

In the present state of affairs here, it is impossible to remit to you 
the money which may be absolutely necessary for these purposes. 
I have, however, already accepted a draft in favor of Mr. McKoy, 
which has satii^fied that demand ; and to put you at your ease for 
the future, I transmit to you a letter of credit on the Bank of Penn- 
sylvania, for the sum of $200,000, which I hope the directors will 
not hesitate to advance as you may require it, especially as the whole 
sum will be expended in the payment of the troops, and in erecting 
works for the defence of the city. 

In carrying these objects into effect, a free communication will be 
proper and eminently useful with tlie Government of Pennsylvania 
and tiie Committee of Safety in Pliiladelphia ; on their support full 
confidence is reposed ; on it, and on the virtue and patriotism of the 
citizens of Pennsylvania, the safety of the city may depend ; and by 
reposing full confidence in them, you will do them only justice, and 
by appealing to, and relying on, generous motives, you will secure 
to the execution of necessary measures, by their powerful coopera- 
tion, greater utility and effect. 

I have the honor to be, &c., 
(Signed) JAMES MONROE.

To Timothy Banger, Esq. , of the o^ce of the Commissary GeneraVs 

Department : 
Sir : The Govei'uor has received your letter of yesterday, cover- 
ing an order by the War Department, dated 3d inst., directing that 
you should issue, on the requisition of the Governor, from the stores 
of the Commissary General of Purchase, arms and equipments. It 
is of inii)ortance to know in time what may be the quantity of the 
several articles at your disposition, so that should there be deficien- 
cies, the energies of the State may be exerted in procuring the neces- 
sary su[)ply. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant,

«IMON SNYDER TO THE SECRETAUr AT WAR. 



Philadelphia, September 7, 1S14. 
To the Honorable Secretary at War : 

Sir: I have the honor to submit to you a copy of a resolution 
adopted by the Committee of Defence for tlie city of Pliiladelpliia. 
Its importance, I presume, will command an early attention, and, 
if consistent with the arrangements of the War Department, an 
immediate compliance with the request it contains. 

The application to enlist troops to be employed exclusively in this 
military district is made with the greater confidence of success, be- 
cause the citizens of New York (as it is said) have a similar species 
of force assigned for their protection. I enclose, also, copies of a 
short correspondence between the Secretary of the Commonwealth 
and a chairman of a sub-committee of the committee of defence, 
from which will be learned more particularly tlie views of the com- 
mittee as regards the expense of the contemplated measure. 
I am, sir, respectfully, 

Y'our obedient servant, 

SIMON SNYDER. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO COL. THOMAS HUMPHREY. 



Philadelphia, September 7, 1814. 
To Col. Thomas Humphrey : 

Sir : The Governor directs, that in case the field piece belonging 
to the company formerly commanded by you requires repairs that 
cannot be made in the country, that you will direct it to be brought 
to Philadelphia for that purpose. Direct it to the care of Daniel 
Sharp, Esq., Inspector of the First Brigade, First Division. If the 
company are organized and prepared to march, let them come on 
immediately, and their piece will be returned to them in good re- 
pair, if sent to this place for that purpose. You will urge their 
preparation, as well as all other volunteer companies within the 
bounds of your regiment. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant,

Philadelphia, September 8, 1814. 

To Brig. Gen. Bloomfield, Commanding Fourth Military Dis- 
trict : 

Sir : I have in contemplation to make a suggestion to the Secre- 
tary at War, to order the detachment of five thousand Pennsylvania 
militia that rendezvous at York on the 5th inst., for the defence of 
the city and the shores of tlie Delaware, if occurrences on the Ches- 
apeake do not urge their march there, agreeably to Gen, Winder's 
requisition. But before I do so, the higli consideration I have for 
the commandant of this military district, dictates this communi- 
cation. If, sir, it has your iipprobation, I will feel obliged for a 
statement of the force you now have, or contemplating in the field 
in a short time. 

Yery respectfully.

N. B. BoiLEAU, Esq. : 

Sir : In reply to your letter of the 7th instant, I liave the honor 
to communicate the following information : Tliere is now on hand 
the following arms. Their condition is as correctly described as it 
is in my power. From the total amount, however, 3,500 must be 
deducted, as they have been ordered for the States of New Jersey 
and Delaware and for Fort Mifflin. Tiiose for the fort are brass 
mounted British muskets. 
1,(540 Springfield muskets, fit for service. 
1,200 French do. do. 

1,465 English do. do. 

1,520 Contract do. do. 

3,000 English muskets will be fit for issue in one week. 
2,117 German muskets unfit for service, and will require much re- 
pair to make them in any respect serviceable. 
4,200 Contract muskets also wanting very considerable repairs. 



WAR OF 1812-14. - 739 

There are not a sufficient quantity of equipments in store to com- 
ply witli existing- orders. 

A number of rifles are in store wliicla miglit, perhaps, be rendered 
fit for service, at least a part of them", originally 1,700. Perhaps 
200 of them have been issued.

To Joiix Williams, Esq., Chairmnn: 

Sir : I accorri, in sentiment and opinion, witVi the sub-committee 
of defence, dated tlie 3d iiist., (a copy of which lias been submitted 
t(» me by General John Steele, a member of said committee,) on the 
subject of a communication to the committee, from the correspond- 
ing committee of the Northern Liberties, wherein they request that 
the Commiteee of Defence will take measures to enable the several 
district committees to give a pledge that the members of organized 
volunteer corps, whose service sliall have been accepted by the com- 
mittee, shall not be liable to militia duty, '' For the obvious reasons 
I hat (however much is to be applauded the general American spirit 
whicli prompts tiie volunteer tender of service under consideration, 
and however willing to foster it) it is not competent for the consti- 
tuted authorities of this, or of the United States, without the ex- 
press sanction of law, to employ, for local purposes, and in a par- 
ticular manner, any such volunteer associations.

SIMON SNYDER TO JAMES MONROE. 



Philadelphia, September 9, 1814. 
To James Monroe, Esq., acting Secretary at War: 

Sir : If tlie army now assembled at Baltimore be deemed adequate 
to a defence of that place, against any disposable force which the 
enemy may land on the shores of the Chesapeake, I would like the 
liberty to suggest, if consistent with other arrangements, the pro- 
priety of employing the detachment of Pennsylvania militia tliat 
rendezvoused at Y^)rk town on the 5th instant, for the defence of 
this city and the shores of the Delaware. This suggestion grows 
from strong doubts wlietlier asufticientforce can, on a sudden emer- 
gency, be collected on tlie shores of the Delaware to repel an invad- 
ing foe. For we must, at present, rely more on the patriotic feeling 
which pervades Pennsylvania, than on coercing obedience to our 
militia law, and before that feeling may have an effect, the enemy, 
by rapid movements, may have effected his depredatory incursions. 
If this suggestion cannot be acceded to, then I would beg leave to 
intimate that it might contribute to the security of this city, as 



WAR OF 1812-14. 741 

well as of Baltimore, if an intermediate point was selected for the 
encampment of the detachment, from which it might be marched 
in a few days either to the Delaware or Chesapeake.

Sir : Believing from my own observation, as well as from the in- 
formation of others, that the task at present of discharging the 
various duties attached to your office is too great for the exertions 
of any individual, I therefore authorize you to employ one pprson 
at the expense of the Commonwealth, to assist you in performing 
the same during the period for which you may supply and furnish 
the volunteer corps, who have, or are now assembling at Philadel- 
phia, under general orders of the 27th of August last, and for whose 
conduct you are to be responsible.

GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO JAMES MONROE. 



Philadelphia, September 10, 1814. 
James Monroe, Esq., Acting Secretary at War: 

Sir : In pursuance of an invitation in your general order of tlie 
27th August last, about six hundred volunteers have arrived and 
many others are on their march hither, for the defence of tliis city. 
They are organized into companies and officered agreeably to tlie 
militia law of this State, which admits of some of volunteer com- 
panies to consist of forty-five privates. It has been suggested by 
Gen. Bloomfield that they form a camp at Marcus Hook, about 
twenty miles from this city, and be organized conformably to regu- 
lations adopted by the army of the United States, and to be ])lHce 
under his command. They evince a disiiosition cheerfully to march 
to and serve at any point to which they may be directed. But as 
each company volunteered their services under the impression that 
they would be commanded by officers of their own chocsing, a right 



742 WAR OF 1812-14. 

guaranteed to tlieni by the law of tlie state, tliey would not readily 
fibniit to a consolidation of comi)auies, or any organization^ that 
would divest them of their legal privileges ; and an atteiTii»t to en- 
force the measure would, 1 appreliend, he attended with conse- 
quences highly injurious to the public service. I would, therefore, 
propose that after they shall have been organized into battalions 
and regiments, agreeably to the militia law of this State, they could 
be placed and continued so organized, under the command of Gen. 
Bloomfield for three months, the term for which they tendered their 
servic.es. I shall only add that no other mode occurs to me at 
present by which harmony can be maintained. 
I am, sir, respectfully, 

Your obedient servant,

longed to your company, has been elected Major under the new 
militia law, and as such was engaged in holding elections within tlie 
bounds of his battalion, agreeably to law. That this morning a file 
of men from your company has arrested him, and taken him to your

correct, as improper and unlawful, and hopes that this expression of 
his opinion will produce an immediate release.

N. B. BOILEAU TO CHARLES BIDDLE. 



Philadelphia, September 12, 1814. 
To CilAKLES BiDDLE, Esq., ChairDian of Committee of Defence: 

Sir. : Tiie Governer concurs as to the propriety and necessity of 
adopting all tlie measures suggested in a report of the General Com- 
mittee of Defence, dated tlie Sth, and presented the 9th instant, by 
their cliairnian, and is willing to adopt any legal or constitutional 
means in his power to carry those measures into full and complete 
operation, but he, in common with the Committee, feels not only 
the responsibility, but the difficulty, if not impracticability, of en- 
forcing them, so long as no autliority can be legally exercised to 
compel tlieir enforcement. He is sensible that at a crisis like the 
present it is expected lie will exercise not only all the authority ap- 
l)ertaining to him as the " first civil magistrate of Pennsylvania," 
but also all tliat of " its military commander-in-chief," nor is he at 
all desirous to shrink from the performance of any duty, or the ex- 
ercise of any autliority which he can constitutionally exercise in 
either of those capacities. lie has, therefore, assiduously examined 
the constitution and the laws, and he is not aware tliat it is in his 
power to compel tlie people to do the things wliich tlie committee 
have suggested. Under this view of the subject he asks permission 
to observe that if the General Committee of Defence will prefer for 
imblication a report of the several duties which, under all circum- 
stances, may be imposed upon the citizens, as means of impeding, 
distressing, or in any way annoying the enemy, that he will cordially 
and promptly cooperate in recommending their adoption, and in giv- 
ing them all the effect which can be derived from his official station. 
He embraces this occasion to state to the committee that the re- 
moval up the river, as far as the water will admit, of all the ships 
and crafts not contemplated to be employed in the general defence, 
as a measure imperiously called for. It would now be attended 
Avith little comparative expense, and it might be better appropriated. 
With high consideration and respect, 

I am, sir, your obedient servant,

General Orders. 

Philadelphia, IWi Septemher, 1S14. 

To N. B. BoiLEAu, John Binns, and William Duncan, AiqIs- 

de-Vuni}') : 

In conformity witli tlie tliirty-tirst section of an act entitled "An 
act for the regulations of tlie militia of this Commonwealth," the 
Governor directs that the uniform of the Pennsylvania militia shall 
be as follows : 

General Officers. — Their coats to be blue, faced and lined 
with buff. They may embroider the button-holes on the collar. 
Their epaulettes, sworcl mounting, buttons, spurs, buckles, and trim- 
mings to be gold or gilt. Buff vests, breeches or pantaloons. 

The General Staff and Field Officers. — To wear chapeaux 
of the following form : The fan not less than six and a half, nor 
more than nine inches high in the rear, nor less than fifteen, nor 
more than seventeen inches from point to point, bound round the 
edge with black binding half an inch wide. The wearing of feathers 
is dispensed with. The company officers may, with the consent of 
the field officers of the regiment to which they belong, wear any 
other uniform hat than the chapeau. 

The coat of the Infantry and Artillery shall be blue, edged with 
red. It shall be single-breasted, and have ten buttons, the length 
to reach to tlie bend of the knee. The standing collar to rise to the 
tip of the ear. The cuffs sliall be plain, of tlie same color of the coat, 
and not less than three nor more than tliree and a half inches wide ; 
the bottom of the breast and two hip buttons to range. Vest, 
breeches, and pantaloons white. Blue pantaloons may be worn in 
the winter. Vest single-breasted, without pocket-flaps. 

Epaulettes, sword mounting, buttons, spurs, buckles, and trim- 
mings of the Artillery, gold or gilt ; those of the Infantry, silver or 
plated. The sword to be of the saber form. 

Black stock, of leather or silk ; cockade blue and red, of leather 
or silk. It is recommended that the cockade be always worn on duty, 
or in service, or when in requisition. Volunteer corps may select 
their own uniform, but the cockade of the State cannot be dispensed 
with. It is earnestly recommended to the officers of the militia to 
use their best exertions in their several commands to induce the 
non-commissioned officers to wear worsted epaulettes. That the ex- 
pense may not be an obstacle, it is ordered that their uniform be a 
gray coatee, and pantaloons of the same color. In summer, hunting 
shirts and trowsers may be worn. A round black hat, the rim not 
to exceed three inches. Any particulars not above prescribed may 



746 WAR OF 1812-14. 

be supplied by reference to tlie regulations prescribed for the array 
of the United States. 

As a due proportion of military oride and uniformity of dress is 
important to form the character of a soldier, it is expected that 
every man who may be called upon to defend his home, his country, 
and his rights, will exert himself promptly, to carry these orders 
into complete effect. It is judged proper to embrace this occasion 
to recommend to officers and men to procure all the materials for 
clothing and equipments of American manufacture. 

yiMOX SNYDER, 
Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO THOMAS LEIPER. 



Philadelphia, Sei>temher 13, 1814. 
To Thomas Lieper, Esq. : 

Sir : In answer to an inquiry contained in a resolution of the 
general committee pi'esented last evening to the Governor, he di- 
rects me to state that Gen. Bloorafield having ordered into service 
the troops for the service of the United States from the Second brig- 
ade. First division, he will have in tlie field shortly four tliousand 
men. About seven hundred men, volunteers under general orders 
of the Governor of the 27th ult., have arrived, and are now en- 
camped at the city hospital, it is confidently believed the number 
will increase to two thousand men during the present week. Some 
volunteer companies from the city have made a tender of their ser- 
vices, the number is not ascertained, nor how many of those patri- 
otic corps are now in the field under Gen. Bloomfield. 

The Governor, by a letter of the 7th inst., has suggested to the 
War Department in defence of this city, the five thousand men, 
Pennsylvania militia, now at York, originally destined for the com- 
mand of Gen. Winder. 

Independently of the four thousand men now in the field, and 
ordered out by Gen. Bloomfield, there yet remains detached for the 
service of the United States, five thousand militia subject to the 
orders of Gen. Bloomfield. The Governor takes the liberty through 
me, to suggest to the committee, who have more immediately the 
subject of fortifications under their superintending care, that if the 
works planned and projected by Gen. Williams were actually com- 
menced, it would attract the attention of the citizens of the ad- 
jacent country to that important object, and prove a strong incite- 
ment to aid in their execution. If the intimation should be ^t- 



WAR OF 1812-14. 747 

tended to, and some persons placed ateacli of the contemplated for- 
tifications, under the direction of a competent person, tlie Governor 
would then deem it proper for him to recommend to all civil and 
military officers and others in the vicinity of the respective works, 
to render volunteer aid in their erection. 

With high respect and consideration, 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO JOHN M. HYNEMAN. 



Philadelphia, September 13, 1814, late at night. 

To John M. Hyne3IAN, Esq., Adjutant General Pennsylvania 

Militia, at York : 

Sir : Yours to Mr. Trimble of the 9th instant is now before me, 
havinfj been forwarded to this place by express. 

The old commissions of militia officers designated for service are 
not expired. See thirty-sixth section of the present militia law, 
third paragraph. They must command tlie drafts, unless they re- 
linquish voluntarily to the new officers. That drafts under the old 
law, which directs there shall be eight classes, and that eight com- 
panies shall form a regiment, shall be commanded by officers elected 
under the new law, which directs there sluill be ten classes and ten 
companies in each regiment, is an absurdity. It was because there 
could be no drafts made under the new law, until after a classifica- 
tion, which is to take place after the fourtli Monday in October 
next. That the general orders of the 22d July last were framed as 
they are, having express reference to the old law. Commissions, 
such as can lawfully issue, are forwarded by John Osier, the ex- 
press. If any further difficulties should occur, because commissions 
of the form required should happen not to be now forwarded, let 
the troops, notwithstanding, marcli, and forward their names, rank, 
&c., and such commissions as can lawfully issue should be sent to 
them. The officers of those companies who have volunteered their 
services, having associated, perhaps, with a view to obviate tiie 
difficulties created by the present law, may have commissions as 
volunteers ; but let them be for seven years. The next Legislature i 
I am sure, will be disposed to correct the vast and manifold evils of 
the present law. 

Your presence here is absolutely necessary. So various and mul- 
tiplied are the duties of the Brigade Inspectors of the First divi- 



748 WAR OF 1812-14. 

sioii, that it is impossible for them to discharge them all. In a letter 
to the Secretary at War, I have suggested, for special reasons, which 
I trust will have desired effect, that the troops at York be directed 
to march for the defence of the shores of the Delaware. This sug- 
gestion grew out of an opinion that the Baltimorians had a force 
more than sufficient to repel the foe, that here we were almost with- 
out any defence, &c. 

If ]5rigade Inspector Stanley's detachment should happen to prove 
a surplussage of men, over and above five thousand you will, in that 
case, order them to march his detachment by the nearest and best 
route to Marcus-Hook, on the Delaware, where, on the 19th instant, 
will rendezvous a detachment of militia from Chester, Delaware, 
Montgomery, and Bucks. 

Very respectfully, your friend, 

SIMON SNYDER.

Fourth military district, to march, with all possible dispatch, the 
flank companies of Light Infantry and Riflemen (who are to march 
by companies) and drafted militia, the quota detached from your 
brigade for the service of the Union, under general orders of the 
22d of July last, to Marcus Hook, on the Delaware, by tlie nearest 
and best route, there to rendezvous on the 19th instant, and to be 
formed into a brigade, for the command of which I designate Brig. 
Gen. Samuel Smith, of Bucks county. The term of service to be 
six montlis, unless sooner discharged. 

The detachment (as far as practicable) must be completely armed , 
and provide themselves with blankets and knapsacks, &c. But any 
who do not possess the means of supplying themselves with knap- 
sacks and canteens, will be furnished at the place of rendezvous. 
Tents and other equipments will be provided by the Government. 

All officers of your brigade are commanded to aid and assist you

the division. They urged me to accept of it, and I consented, upon 
coiidition that it would not interfere too much with the duties of 
Brigade Inspector. When 1 returned home, I found that my absence 
from the brigade, for any length of time, would be attended with 
great inconvenience, &c., to the militia, and I immediately sent 
back a person to York to inform them tliat I could not leave home 
without, in my opinion, forfeiting the appointment I now hold. As 
they promised to write to the Governor on the subject, I would 
thank you to inform his Excellency that I am at home, and ready 
to execute the duties of the brigade. 



7,5(} WAR OF 1812-14. 

Tlie elections for company officers in my brigade will be over this 
week. I would wish to know^ whether I should immediately have 
the militia mustered for holding themselves in readiness for a call. 
With much res|iec't, 

I remain vour obedient humble servant,

riiiLADELPHiA, September 14, 1814. 
To Gen. Bloomfield : 

Siu : 1 liave tlie lionor to aclinowledge the receipt of your note of 
this date, on the subject of tlie volunteers assembled at tlie City 
Hospital, and have to state, so soon as they, with other volunteer 
corps w ho are on their march to this city, in pursuance of my orders 
of the 27th of August last, are organized into battalions, regi- 
ments, and armed, and the field othcers commissioned, they will be 
directed to march to Marcus Book, or to such other place as you 
may direct, subject to your further orders for the term of three 
months, tlie time for which they volunteered their services. It is, 
however, to be understood that no change in the organization of the 
companies, battalions, or regiments can take place, and that they 
shall enjoy all the rights secured to them by tlie laws of the State, 
under the faith of which they have volunteered their services. 

rerniit me, sir, to suggest that in the present state of alarm it 
would tend much to inspire confidence if the militia from tiie 
Eighth and Ninth divisions, as numbered in the militia law of 1807, 
being the militia of the first named division within the counties 
of Northami)ton, Pike, Lehigh, and Northumberland — Union, Co- 
lumbia, Luzerne, Susquehanna, and Wayne, composing the militia 
within the other, under which law the drafts were made, agreeably 
to my orders of the 22d of July last, and which are designated for 
the service of the Union, were immediately ordered into service. 
Those of the Eighth could be brought to this place in a shoit time ; 
those of the Ninth division are more distant.

Philadelphia, September 14, 1814. 
Messrs. Samuel Breck, Boyd Reily, and Matthias Keen : 

Gentlemen : The Governor duly appreciates your patriotic in- 
tentions of forming a volunteer corps, and the tender of your ser- 
vice in the cause of our common country ; but a requisition having 
been made by Gen. Bloomfield for the quota of militia detached for 
his command, and some of tlie men belonging to your association, 
it would appear, have been drafted and detached for that service. 
Under those circumstances tlie Governor deems it improper to give 
any order or opinion that might interfere with the arrangements 
that may have been contemplated by the commander of this military 
district. 

Very respectfully, sir, 

Your obedient servant, 

N.B. BOILEAU, 
Secretary. 



N. B. BOILEAU TO LIEUT. FOX. 



Philadelphia, Septertiber 14, 1814.

Sir: As acting Deputy Quarter-master, you are authorized to 
issue rations to such detachments as may arrive at the encampment 
at and near the City Hospital until further orders, and procure the 
necessary quantity of camp kettles and mess-pans. 

Very respectfully, sir. 

Your obedient servant, 

N. B. BOILEAU,

X. B. BOILEAU TO JOHN SERGEANT. 



Philadelphia, Septemler 15, 1814. 
To JoHX Sergeant, Chairman of the sub-committee : 

Sir : To questions contained in certain resolutions adopted bj' the 
General Committee of Defence, copies of which were presented to 
tlie Governor yesterday, I am instructed to answer — 

First. That there are not arms and equipments at the disposition 
of the Governor, more than sufficient to supply the militia liable to, 
and called into actual service. As regards ammunition there ample 
materials, and instructions have been given to have a sufficient 
quantity hxed, both by the Governor and General Bloomfield. 

Second. The Secretary at War, by letter dated the 4th inst., in- 
formed the Governor, that he had ordered to be deposited at Car- 
lisle, ten thousand stand of arms and equii)ments subject to his or- 
der. Of this Gen. Watson, who commands the detachment at York, 
was apprised by letter dated the 6th inst. But a letter from the Ad- 
jutant General at that place, with post-mark of the 10th, the Gov- I 
ernor is informed that the deposit had not then been made at Car- 
lisle. 

On the 9th inst., a letter was addressed, by the direction of the 
Governor, to James Lamberton, Brigade Inspector at Carlisle, di- 
recting him, with all possible dispatch, to forward to this place five 
thousand stand of arms, wyth the requisite equipments. This let- 
ter was sent by mail to Harrisburg, and from thence forwarded by 
express. No information has j^et been received from Maj. Lamber- 
ton. lie being a vigilant officer there can be no doubt of his imme- 
diate attention to the order, if the deposit has been made. 

Third. No answer has been received from the War Department 
relative to the enlistment of a regular force for the defence of this 
district. 

Fourth. With regard to calling out the whole body of militia, the 
Governor holds it under advisement. Tlie principal difficulty which 
presents itself on this question is the impracticability of immedi- 
ately furnishing the necessary arms and equipments. 

The letter of Daniel Ilinkle relative to some muskets he has for 
sale, which the committee sent to the Governor last evening, shall 
be immediately attended to. 

N. B. BOILEAU.

JAMES MONROE TO GOV. SIMON SNYDER. 



War Department, September 19, 18U. 

His Excellency Simon Snyder, Grvernor of Pennsylvania : 

Sir : The enemy having left Baltimore, and passed down the bay, 
I have deemed it advisable to alter the destination of the Pennsyl- 
vania militia assembled at York. General Watson has been or- 
dered to march those troops to the neighborhood of Philadelphia, 
and dispose of them, agreeably to such arrangements as may have 
been made for the defence of that city, should it be attacked by the 
enemy. It is hoped, however, that our late brilliant success on 
Lake Cham plain and pressure on the enemy, on that frontier gen- 
erally, may contribute to relieve our eastern frontier. 

I have the honor to bs, very respectfully, sir, 
Your Excellency's obedient servant, 
' JAMES MONROE.

vision : 
Sir : Brigadier General Cadwalader having orders for his brigade, 
,the election of field officers, which election the Major General had 
I directed you to hold, agreeably to law, and which a multiplicity of 
engagements it is presumed prevented you from ordering and super- 
intending. Tlie reasons which the General assigns for his orders 
■ and other considerations will induce you to recognize the elections 
and returns, so that commissions may immediately issue. 

tt Very respectfully, 
Your obedient servant, 
N. B. BOILEAU,

P. S. You will not omit purchasing the muskets from Hinkle, 
which was intimated to you yesterday. You will also attend to the 
purchase of the tents at Montmolius.

To Gen. John Steel : 

Sir : In a conversation I had with the State Treasurer shortly 
after 1 had tlie pleasure to see you on the subject of the appointment 
si)oken of yesterday, that officer said that a commissary general not , 
being known to our laws, his accounts could not be settled by the I 
accountant department without a special act of the Legislature. J 
This, together with the consideration that the greater part of thei^ 
Pennsylvania volunteers now assembled in and near tlie city, will 
shortly enter the service of the United States, and from the expec- sj 
tation that the Adjutant General will shortly arrive here, induces 
me to hesitate about the propriety of tlie appointment for the pres- 
ent. If, however, the public service should imperiously require it, 
such an officer must either be appointed, or one that will act as an 
assistant to the Adjutant General.
