uhmission or complacency. 
The government of the l nj* lid not fait 

' remonstrate against the orders in rouncll of 
reat Britain. Although they knew that 
rders would be revoked if the dcci\ es of I 
'hich had occasioned them, were repealed, they 
fcsolved at the same moment to resist the conduct 
f both belligerents, instead of requiring France in 
le first instance, to rescind her decre.es. Applying 1 
Host unjustly the same measure of resentment 
lie aggressor and to the party aggrieved, they a- 
opted measures of commercial resistance against 
oth a system of resistance, which, however varied 
i the successive acts of embargo, non-intercourse, 
r non-importation, w;:s evide.nly unequal in its 
peration, and principally levelled against ii 
>erior commerce and maritime power of (ix'a' 
Britain. 

The same partiality towards France was observv 
lie in their negociations, as in their measures ot 
lleged resistance. 

Ajjpiication was made to both be lligcix nts for thr. 
revocation of their res])ecti\e edicts, bu! the term^ 
n which they were made' \vere widely different. 

Of France was required a revocation only of the 
Hc-rlin and Mibn decrees, although many other e 
licts, gnwsh violating the neutral commerce of tie 
United State:;, had been promulgated by tJlat pow- 
r. No ;t.s demanded, that the Berlin and 

Milan c! -en --s, even if rescinded, sho-uld not undei- 
other form be re-establislied ; and a dii-- 

.1 u -;is offered, that ti])on such revocation 1he 
ernment would take part in the war a 1 
rains, (.. 15. if she did not immediately rescind her 
.;rders. \Vhcreas no correspondir.>; l\l was 

'o cr/eat Britain, of whom ii was required, 
not only that the orders in should be re- 

.'but thai no others c.fa simih.r nature should

United States by no means correspond with suck 
reasonable expectations. The order in council of 
t V 2od June being officially communicated to Ame- 
rica, the government of the United States saw no- 
thing in the rqwal of the orders in council, which 
should of itsetf restore peace, unless Great Britain 
were prepared in the first instance, substantially to 
relinquish the right of impressing her own seanren. 
when found on board American merchant ships. Tlie 
proposal of an armistice, and of a simultaneous re- 



peal of the restrictive measures on bf.th nidi 
sequently made by the commanding officer of his 

majesty's naval forces on the American coast, were 
received in the same hostile spirit by tin- govern- 
ment of thr United States. The suspension of the 
practice of impressment was insisted upon in ihe 
correspondence which passed on that << r ion, as :i

Before congress copies of a proclamation o 
r of the island of Bermuda 

vhich cd under circumstances leaving no 

doubt .e-.iticity. It incites a British ordei 

in council of-i:.' 26th of October last, providing foi 
.-f t>.e British West Indies and other co- 
-, by a trade under special licenses, 
.ipaniedby a circular instruction to the 
colonial governors, which confines licensed importa- 
tions from ports of the eastern states exclusively. 
The government of Great Britain has already in- 
> her commerce, during war, a system 
which, at once violating the rights of other nations, 
*nd resting upon a mass of forgery and perjury, un 
to other times, was making an unfortunate 
progress in undermining those principles of morali 
ty und religion which are the best foundations of 
national happiness. The policy now proclaimed to 
the world introduces into her modes of warfare a 
system equally distinguished by the deformity of 
Jt 3 futures and the depravity of its character ; hav- 
its object to dissolve the ties of allegiance, 
and the sentiments of loyalty in the adversary na- 
tion, HIH'I to seduce and separate its component 
parts the one fr?in the other. The general tenden- 
cy of these demoralising and disorganising contri- 
vances will be reprobated by the civilized and 
.tn world, and the insulting attempt on the 
\ir'u", the honor, the patriotism, and the fidelity 
of our brethren of the eastern stales, will not fail 
forth the.r indignation and rv:u nlment ; and 
Hi more and more all the stnte< to that happy 
iiiid constitution, against which such insidi- 

: ure directed.

than dollars for every such offence. 

Sec. 3. Prescribes the mode of recovery and dis- 
ribution of penalties. 

Sec. 4. Limits the duration of the bill to the 1st

The bill was twice read, and referred to a com- 
mittee of the whole.

gatived 75 to 41.

ideration of the bill to prohibit the use of foreign 
icenses was resumed it was finally ordered to u 
bird reading.

ng 

The house then resolved itself into a commi' 
lie whole on the bill prohibit ing the exportation of 
ertrun articles in foreign bottoms. Some, amend-

the conduct of tin- savages*, who were tlieu 

number*. 

In this critical situation, being 1 desirous to pre- 
f u number of our brave fellows 
il held out, I sent u flag to them and 
with the commanding 1 officer of the enemy, that 
.<>uld be surrendered prisoners of war, on con- 
dition of being protected from the savage*, allowed 
.11 their private property, and having- their 
5ide arms returned to them. It is impossible for me 
.vit!i certainty the loss we have sustain- 
ed in this action from the impracticability of know- 
ing the number who have made t!:cir escape. 

Thirty-five officers and about 487 non-commission- 
ed officers and privates are prisoners of war. A list 
of the names of the officers is herewith enclosed to 



you 



Our loss in killed is considerable. 



However ur,fortun;:'.c m.iy seem the affair of ycs- 
. I am Haltered by a'belief, that no material 
error il ile upon myself, and that still less 

censure is deserved by the troops I h^J the honor of 
command 

With the exception of that portion of our force 
Ti'hidi was thrown into disorder, no troops have ever 
behaved with more determined intrepidity.

if hit 



brig Frolic, bv the ship '. 



belonging to the United States of America, on the 
18th instant. 

Having ui;dev convoy the homeward bound trr.dc 
from the Bay of Honduras, and being in latitr, 
deg. X. aiul long. (Hdcg.'W. on the night of the 
irih, We were overtaken by a most violent gale of 
wind, in which the Frolic Ciiriedaway her main- 
yard, lost her top-sails, and sprung the main-top- 
' in the morning of the 18th, as we were re- 
pairing ; din the storm, and re- 
assembling I d ships, a suspicious ship 
came in sight and :;., c rhase. to the coin oy. 

The merchant ships continued their voyage before 
the wind .under all .sail; tlie Frolic dropped astern, 
order to decoy the stran- 



ger under her guns, and give time for the convoy to 
escape. About ten o'clock, both vessels being' with*- 

in hail, we hauled to the-, wind, and the battle be- 
gan. The SU] ry rea- 
son to expect a speedy termination in our favor, bu't, 
the gall-head 

ing no sail o ::iast, the brig be<v, 

manageable, and the e-.iruiy sueceeded in taking ; 
position to rake her, while i-he was unable to bring 
a gun to bear. 

...sed to a most destruc- 
tive fin -:-prit bet\\ ixt t.

At length the enemy hoarded, and made himself

of the correspondence ween Henry

Consulate of the U. S. of America. 

St. Stihador, 22d December, 1812- 
SIR In acknowleding tlie receipt of the letter 
which I had tl;e honor yesterday evening 1 to re 



accurate opinion on the subject, and in doing so, I from your excellency, lean but express niy surprise 
feel confident that you will see no cause of censure that th'-re ahould ejc'ist the least cause of alarm or 

inquietude, except on the part of the British mer- 
chant* in this city, in consequence of the supposi- 
tion or fact of an American squadron in ilx-bt 
or from the appearance in and oft' This port of the U.' 
States ship of war Hornet, aJid more particularly 
that the approach of this ship to the mouth of the 
harbor yesterday afternoon, with her colors flying- 
(being- already known as a national ship of the United 
States) should be called by your excellency a ; 
act, or construed into a breach of the neutrality of 
this port, especially when the object of this ship 
must be well understood, from the circumstance of 
a British sloop of war of equal or superior force ly- 
ing 1 sheltered within the harbor. Had any aggression. 
have been committed by the Hornet or any oilier ves- 
sel of the United States, on the Portuguese com- 
merce, or any insult to the sovereignty or real vio- 
lation of the declared neutrality of this country have 
been offered, it certainly would be a matter of ex- 



in the conduct of my squadron thus complained of. 
I am conscious that I felt, and hope I shall ever tceJ 
the goeatest disposition to respect the rights of neu- 
trals ; yet at the same time, I trust we shall exact 
our rights as a belligerent when Acting in that cha- 
racter ; for as a neutral nation we had no righto 
left us. 

I have the honor, sir, to be with the greatest re- 
spect, ytmr obedient servant, 

\VM. BAINBRIDGB. 
Secretary of the .May, Washington, 

MR. HI1L TO COXJIODORE BAIN BRIDGE. 

ContulcLtt of the U. States of Jhnerica, 

St. Safoador, 23d Dec. 1813. 

DEAR Shra I have the honor to enclose herewith a 

translation of a letter just received from his excel- 

tiie governor of this city and province, with 

my answer thereto, by which you will perceive the 



pretended fears of his excellency regarding yo ur I treme regret, and have afforded just cause of i 



aqu-idron, and the interpretation he puts upon the 
act of the Hornet in appearing off this port yester- 
day evening. It may be well to avoid as much as 
possible anv motive for exciting the fears of these 
people, or for mortifying their pride, so intimatelv 
connected with the English interests and honor, 
whilst at the same time I have no idea that on this 
Or any other account we should omit any thing that 
is fair or honorable in endeavoring to annoy and 
distress the enemy's commerce on this coast or else.- 
vrfiere, nor submit to the denial of any right, which, 
as a belligerent, we are entitled to on neutral ground 
. Remaining, dear sir, your vorv respectful and obe- 
dient servant, HENRY HILL, Consul. 
Com. Wm. Bainbridge, commander of the 
skips of toar of the United States, on the 
coazl of Jirazils, 

(TRANSLATION.) 

It is with the greatest surprise I have ascertained 
the tJnited States ship Hornet, lately received in this 
port in a manner the most amicable and analogous 
to the principles of neutrality, adopted between the 
government of Brazils and the United States, makes 
part of a naval force which is employed in cruizing 
Xipon this coast and at the mouth of this harbor, from 
which has arisen the utmost inquietude to the pub- 
lic and general commerce of the subjects of hi? 
royal highness, the Prince Regent, our lord, and 
the evil intention of tlie.se forces being confirmed by 
the strange event which has just happened in the 
afternoon of to-day, that ship having sailed in anc 
out of this port without any obvious motive, which 
Being without the le; st doubt a proceeding reall) 
hostile, and so much the more aggravating, inas 
ynuch as it is contrary to what you voluntarily tele 
me was the destination of that ship. 

You are notified that I shall lose no time in ac 
<ju.aint'm his royal highness of this- strange proceed 



jng, ma manner the most circumstantial, soliciting 
from his infallible justice the necessary orders tc 
take from it that just satisfaction and "vengeance 
which nations have settled between themselves 



ignation and alarm, since hitherto the most perfect 
>eace, harmony and good understanding hus existed 
>etwoeji the two countries, and I am happy to have 
t in my power to assure your excellency, that whilst 
he United States will expect the free enjoyment of 
heir belligerent rights in the neutral territory of the 
lominions of Portugal, on their part her neutrality 
s duly appreciated, and that the ship Hornet (and 
presume all other vessels of the United States) has 
the most positive orders "not in the least to violate 
the most strict neutrality, or b) any act to interrupt 
he friendly understanding and amicable disposition 
and relation, which htippily subsists between his 
royal highness, the Prince llcgcnt of Portugal, and 
the government of the United States." 

I have the honor to remain, with due respect and 
consideration, your excellency's most obedient ser- 
'ant, 

(Signed) HENRY HILL, Consul 

To his excellency, the. Court Don Jrcos, 
caftt.gen. andgov. of the province and

MM. HILL TO THE GOVERNOR. 

Consulate of the U. S.of.'Jmcrira, 
St, Salvador, 3d January, 1813. 

SIR I have the satisfaction to participate to your 
excellency that com. BainbridgC having become ac- 
quainted through me of the interest manifested by 
your excellency for the liberation of lieut. gen. His- 
lop and his staff', has resolved to take upon himself 
the responsibility of paroling those officers here, as

commodore on board that frigate. 

In this act of liberality on the part of com. Bain-

and generous spirit by which lie is actuated, 
siring to correspond as far as in his power with the 
wishes of your excellency, and to mitigate the evil 
arising out of the event of war, from the misfortunes 
of individuals., whojo a fcpave c&mmairtter will never

copy. It is to be published in 50 numbers, at three

CAT: ; RE OF THE MACEDONIAN.

:i rally-Office, December 9, 1812. 

Gbfty of a letter from captiun John tiuniian Cariltn,

to Joint Jl datrd oil board the .irne- 

tican ship tlie United States, til ssa, the 2Sth Oeto-

Srit It is with the deepest regret I have to ac- 
quaint you, for the information of my lords commis- 
jsioners of the admiralty, that his majcsU's late ship 
raptured on the 25th inst. hy the 
ip United States, commodore Deca- 
tur, commander. The details as follow : 

irt-time after day-light, steering >. w. by w, 

Vith tlie wind from southward, in lat. 29 deg-. \. and 

long. 29 deg. 30 min. w. in the execution of their 

, a sail was seen on the lee-beam, 

v.hich 1 immediately stood for, and nvide her out to 

-, under American colors ; at 9 
I r.lo-^-d with her, and she commenced the 

action, whirli we returned, but from the. en iny 
keeping two points off the wind, I was not enabled 
to get as close to tr-ras I could have wished, 
iction the enemy burked :n. 
.vind, and 1 was then en.ibled to bring iier to 
dtle ; in this situation 1 soon found the -ne- 
jny's force too superior to expect success, unless 
some very fortunate chance occurred in our favor, 

I continued the battle two hours 
And ten minutes, when having the mizen-tnast shot 
away bv tin: LK-a:

On being taken on board the enemy's ship, I ceased, 
to wonder at the result of the battle. The United

irty long 24pounder.s(EnglisJiship guns) 
on her main-deck, and twenty-two 42 pound carro- 
nades, with two long 24 pounders, on her quarter- 
deck and fore-castle, howit/.er guns in her tops, and 
a travelling carronadc on her upper di;ck, \vith a 
complement of 4"8 ji irked men. 

The enemy has suffered much in her masts, rig- 

ging and hull, above and below water ; her loss in 

Killed and wounded I am not aware of, but I know a 

lieutenant and six men have been thrown overboard.

Mr.c- '^ate. This noble frigate, sup- 

posed to be the largest in the Hritish navy, 
some what larger than the -'Ica.tta, now on the Ame- 
rican station) was lately re fit lid and rep-'ired at Ply* 
mouth, and excited the admiration of professional 
men. Referring to the captui* e.'ih- (Jncrrierc, it has

upon the cold charity of their oppressor, to

firing his pistols at the enemy, he received a ball 
through the same shoulder. Notwithstanding the 
serious nature of his wound, he continued at his 
post until the ( nemy struck. A few days after the 
action, although laboring- under considerable debili- 
ty, and the most excruciating pain, he left his bed 
and repaired to quarters, when an engagement was 
expected with a ship which afterwards proved to be 
the Hornet. He bore his pain with great and unu-

"General Harrison will no doubt write to you 
his views, and the accounts of the lute kclion. Al- 
though unfortunate, it is honorable to our arms ; 
and the sequel stamps the British with the basssi 
Irrachcrit and the blackest ri//tiiny. The murder of 



. larter-master-general of the wounded and tlie violation of our flag, by a 



British officer, (an American born citizen) captain 
Rliiolt, will, I trust, be remembered until retribu- 
tion shall have atoned for it.

ivariy for service. It was pleasant to remark that 

all the wldi.i'rsof the revolution in the neighborhood,

OF THE D cm CATION. The Ded icat ion of the pre- 
sent number was not drawn np in c-mst.quence of its 
contents being particuarly devoted to naval affairs, 
though it 90 happens that a very liberal no! 

f them but hi '.so, "in our own 

way," desired to show our respect for the tars of (V.- 
lumbia. In duo time, other affairs will be noticed 5

St a meeting of the i 

Tontine Cofl . called on Saturday to take 

into consider.. t ion the defenceless state of on;- 
harbor, Cornelius Ray. es<j. in tlie chair. 
On mo/ion rtauh-rd,, That Kufus King, K!n 
Ste\en.s, Oliver "U'oleott, ^"illi:;m ^\ . \\'ool-- 

mi Henderson, be a coiv.mittcx.' to pre])are and 
cpi.ri to this meeting 4 , as to the subjects on which 
they were convened : which committee reported the 
oil owing 

Kenlved, That tlie citizens of tiie UAd States 
ire of right, and according to the constitution and 
aws of the land, entitled to thu enjoyment of life, 
liberty and property, and that it is the primary and 
most important duty of government to defend, pre- 
serve and protect the same, 

wired, That upon the strength and resources of 
the United States, that \\c can alone, under Provi- 
dence, rely for national safety, and the maintenance 
of national rights. 

wh'eif, That the repeated outrages committed 
by foreign ships of war at (lie mouths of our harbors 
merit the resentment and indignation of every friciid 
to his country. 

<</, Tlmt an administration which consents 
to pay money to avoid foreign insolence, to prevent 
the violation of national rights, while it sells and dis- 
mantles its naval force, instead of increasing and 
preserving it for the defv.u-e of our ports and coni- 
prostrates the national honor, endangers the 
public safety, and i.ivilesboth injustice and insult. 
Jii'fth.<nl, That (he sufi' Tii'g of foreign armed ves- 
sels to station themselves off our harbor, and there 
to stop, search, and capture our vessels, to impress, 
wound and murder our citi/.ens, is a gross and cri- 
minal neglect of th. 1 highest duties of government, 
and that, an administration v. hich patiently permits 
-, is noi entitled to the confidence of a brave 
and fret- people. 

That the bodv of merchants -\vlio fore- 
saw the impending dangvr and petitioned com;-n-:; 
and tlie state legislature to afford protection to this 
ritA and its lawful commerce, have merited the ap- 
probation of their feilov. -eit i/ens.

.n.an invitation tocapt.IIp.ll to give him 
this kiiul. 

in t!> liere there was a vast disparity of 

in- part of tlic enemy, we think we can trao- 
ID Hull's generous self-denial, on hid 
officers and crcu'. Wha'.e\ er mav bi i the i'ashion of 
considering soldiers and sailors as mere- machine--;, 
without capaeiu of being operated upon by a 
c.tcmcitt but that of the tear of i)unishnicnt, we 
arc convinced thai all men, high or low, are fond ,f 
glory, and that this fondness is one of the str 
incitements to brave act ions, even in the most com- 
mon minds. Men- discipline, however indi.>, 
hie it may be to constitute a soldier or sailor, in 
but a tame inspircr, when compared with the im- 
pulse given by the. hope ar.il expectation of renown. 
iioin tliis conviction, that all the distmgui; ti- 
ed commanders \\ e ever Jteard or read of, were 
careful to celebrate the valor of their officers am! 
soldiers, and to beslow on them the glory of every 
action. Men, let them be what they may, will as- 
suredly make greater sacrifices and exertions in an 
engagement where, if they conquer, they share Ihv. 
glow, than if it is all to be given to the command- 
er, let them love him ever so well. Small us ma}' 

.'. itSsh squadron, consisting all be the portion of this glory which falls to the share

being, however insignificant, is surrounded, he 
moves an object of wonder, and is a hero among the

nimity, but his knowledge. Qf mankind, who assigns 
a large portion of his fame to his followers. They 
will fight the better for it, and the world will make 
bhn ample amends for his generosity, inasmuch as 
this liberal self-denial is a much more rare and he-

act itself because, the person ivus a citizen of a 
state that had consented to call out the militia, f<ir

militia are required to be furnished, not only beyond 
these limits, not only within those of the other

most unprovoked description, and the armies which

ke his o\\ n anci s'.or, Peter the great, he aspires 
nl\ to bee- 'me the father of his country; a noble

Reflections arising from this well known di> 
ion of the Russian emperor, complete our joy by 
giving it the sanction of prndence and cool judg- 
rent ; f<T, the immediate advantages of the pi 
i.<ppy change, are not like >o be conn 1 . cruet er' by 
he events with which futurity is pregnant. Ales'- 
inder c. nnot become the persecutor of those whom 
e rcsc"ed from persecution; or withdraw his pio- 
ection from tliose who wish and deserve to have him 
or their protector. Moderation has always been an 
ngredient in the system of Russian policy. In the 
mmense Russian empire; where almost every thing* 
s yet in its incipient state, where the produce of the 
constitutes wealth and riches, and where time 
and encouragement are necessary to mature infant 
miustry and nurse national strength, peace is a Mes- 
iing, devoutly to be wished, incessantly pursued, 
md preferred to all other means of aggrandizement, 
r'rom the reign of Peter the great, down to the pre- 
sent time, such has uniformly been the course of 
he Russian sovereigns; and though important con- 
juests were made from time to time, yet they never 
proceeded from caprice from that wanton and un- 
M-ovoked aggression, which threatens the subjuga- 

on of the world, merely for the pleasure of triumph. 
They were dictated by necessity and not by the 
quenchless thirst for human blood. The greater iy 
lie influence of Russia, the greater will be the se- 
Mirity and happiness of nations. It is the limitation 
of her power in Europe which the great son of Cha- 
tham endeavored to establish, from apprehensions 
altogether groundless, that has raised France to her 
dreadful eminence ; and this illustrious statesman, 
who lived to be undeceived, never ceased to regret 
the error he thus committed. Russia being in her 
latural state, and in no need of artificial or extra- 
ordinarv means to sustain herself in a new and pain- 
ful, though imposing attitude, advances in her ca 
eer wiih regular pace, removing obstructions ini- 
media 1 ely in her way, but leaving all other roads to 
the free use of her fellow-travellers. 

Her power, therefore, nrver can be so fatal as has 
been that of K ranee, who, impelled by the revolution 
beyond her natural strength, required unnatural 
iM'-aiis to feed i', and thus became at length the 
monster of war, subsisting on the spoils of others, 
and devouring her own children, in order to prolong 
hc-r feverish existence. 1'Yance appeared like sonn: 
h gh and inacccssable cliff, whose snowy summit, 
suddenly heated, descends in overwhelming torrents, 
and leaves in the parent mountain, and all around, the 
deep and n,; lancholy traces of its devastating course. 
Russia, on the contrary, resembles an extensive 
plain, where waters, collected from natural springs, 
move gently on, and receiving in their pi-ogress ma- 
ns a tributary stream, swell into a m.Jestic river, 
ous when disturbed by tempests, but other- 
wise sate and peaceful, bearing on its bosom the la- 
bors and hopes of mankind, and distributing abun- 
dance and happiness through the regions it passes. 
Such then has bem the difference between the.se two 
)o\vi-s ; our joy is but a tribute to humanity, whose 
sufferings we have heretofore bewailed. It is an of- 
Vring to Heaven, which in aiding the efforts of 
Iluasia, has heard our prayer^ and rescued the

ymen driven through the streets like

procuration of our liberty all 
aost uH:re;y stripped by the Indians ; 
; lu-e of the occasion pcr- 
d us. 



mt be assured i" an humbug of the fellow*.? 
naking to screen himself from the odium < 

The cap'ain's character and the danger that 
ittended his carrying such i'urm'iure in u disastrous 

. gives it th. 

Captain Wuolfolk af>er having b'-en wounded in 
two places, by some means had go! retui,'- in 
the French houses on the Ilaisin he w IS 
next day and dragged from his assxlum i 
taken to the house ..fa Mr. Lasselle, \\ 1 
he would give him lor one thousand dollars to ;.:iy 
one who \\ould purchase him. Mr. Lasselle said it 
was not in his power, hut he had no doubt his brother 
would do it \v ho lived at hand he dirt ded his ou u- 
ers to the house of his brother, but as tin y were on 
their way an Indian from a waste house shot him 
through the head. 

Ensign Wells was taken from my side unhurt. 
I considered him alive until on my arrival at this 
place, captahl NaggS told me he was killed by u 
Puttawatamie Indian, not long alter he was taken. 

Manv fresh scalps have been brovsght us since the 
battle,' and dead bodies se. n throuph the country, 
which proves that others have been killed, whose 
names I have not been able to find out ; independent 
of those reported to colonel Proctor. 

This, sir, is all the information I have been able 
to collect concerning those who were massacred. 
The fifteen or eighteen mentioned in the remarks to 
the return made to colonel IVoetor, wl,o>e 



furnish 

Em ; ^ vou a roll of 



prisoners who 



idwieli OM the iSth -list, as well as 

eleven on to this place with Dr. Howen and

under the care of Dr. Samuel M'Keckan, surgeon's 

iment, Jd brigade, Ohio volunteers. 

iwich with the exception of 
will all recover, ar.d much is to be hoped 
in. 
One man died on the l?t instant, Martin Xeiher-

ucky volunteer riflemen, 

i me to make 

turn of ;.!! the prisoners who were killed by 
: aiis sm>sef|iien' m the battle, agreeable t( 



do not appear, were not known by those who saw 
them killed. 

M.jor Graves of the 5th regiment of the Ken- 
tucky Volunteer*, I have been ahlu to get no in, 
formation of, further than that he was brought to 
the river Rouge on the 25th or 25th January, in a 
sleigii ; I fear from our not having heard an}- thing 1 
of him s. ce, that he is no more and that valuable 
officer is forever lost to his country. 

Enclosed (C) gives you the names of those who 
from good information, are still in the bush. At a 
rough guess founded on the few facts I have been 
able to glean, I may say, with some certainly, 
that t'.ere arc still thirty or forty alive with the 
Indians, 

The prospect of a speedy return of those poor 
fellows I think but gloomy, as colonel Proctor has 
issued an order, enjoining Individuals to purchase 
; and the Indians have (M en paid a i;r-at- 
for those already delivered, than the 



more 
pric 



the best nit' ^ould collect. The enclosed 

marked (R) was produced by this ordrr ; 
might have added the gallant capt. Nathaniel (.ray

Allen's servants are acting as valets to Ir.di. r. chiefs. 
:. in Hart's servant is alive, but where he is, 
is uncertain. 

The dead of our army arc still denied the rites 
of sepulture ; at the time I left Sandwich I was told 
that the hogs were eating them ; a gentleman told 
me he had seen them running about with sculls, 
arms, legs and other parts of the- human system in 
their mouths. The French people on the river Jiaisi.i 
buried captains Hart, \Voodfolk and some others, 
but it was more than their lives were worth to have 
been caught paying this last tribute of humanity to 
the dead. 

I -'\vral times agit:>tcd the subject of bun Ing

they always answered, that the Indians would not 
suffer it.

' kdians. The 






ties, is weak and pitiful. It is said the 1 nah.iwk in their tiands. During the revolution, 

wlien the liritish, in alliance with some of them, 
our frontiers, and committed murders un- 
til then unheard of, we advised others of this rest* 
less people to peace, and resisted their importunity 
to retaliate on the enemy the wrongs he committed. 
They were sometimes employed in small nun.t.-ers, 
s spies and guides; but in no other capacity that 
I ever learned. At this moment, the United States 
could let loose upon the liritish in Canada, up- 
wards of 1,000 Indr-.n warriors. Many of them are 
impatient for the field of battle, thirsting for blood, 
Hut the same policy prevail*; they are restrained by 
force, or persuaded, or pensioned to remain quiet. 

What a glorious contr.isl! Let it be maintained; 

and, when the blood of innocence murdered shall 
.iscend to heaven; when tiie scalp of the mother and 
h'-r babe shall rise up in judgment, and plead for 
justir v l(-t these crimes be heaped, like coals of 
fire, on liritis,},. heads only. 

But while we wonld discountenance such retalia- 
tion, there is much due to self-defence. It appears 
as though the extermination of the faithless race 
was indispensable to our safety, the Jlritish retain- 
ing possession of Upper Canada. We have evi- 
dences of their ferocious hostility that it would be 
criminal to forget. The fact is clearly shewn, that 
no rule of justice or spirit of conciliation and friend- 
ship, c.in detach them from their murderous habits.

poisoning be reprehended if suffered to form a pari

al poisoning be more criminal than a general

equally reprehended. 

Iii a note below will be found an account of the 
of the blood-hounds introduced by the 



Spaniard* into St. Domingo, first to destroy the In- or secure us against their treacheries ; and it will 



.-id afterwards the nif>ivive negroes. All who 
have written upon the settlement ot Jlmtrica, have 
>red to give immortality to the cruel lie of the 
Spaniards in this particular ; and many British his- 
torians are singularly eloquent on this great theme 
for censure. But who had the astonishing audacity 
to justify the Spaniard* on the plea that these blood 
hounds could not be res*, rained from thrusting their 
beads into the bowels and tearing out the living 
. of their victim ? No one has had the im- 
pudence to do this ; but the bl.me is universally 
laid where it justly applies, and the Spaniards, toho 
v.*;-d the dvg.t, are considered as responsible fur the *mor- 

they committed.

event, sooner or later ; and his "gracious majesty's" 
officers in Canada have been unremittingly employ- 
ed to attach the biped blood-hounds to themselves, 
while they excited their hatred to the Americans, 
by every means in their power. 

From tiie organization of the government of the 
United States, the constant care of every administra- 
tion has been to better the condition of the Indian 
tnbcs, and preserve profound peace with them. 
Such is the spirit of our republican institutions.

icreiifter become a serious question, how far they 
can be spared. In the nature of things, it is impos- 
sible they will be able to defend themselves against 
the enraged people of the west ; nor can Great liri- 
tain give to the bordering tribes, any security by 
treaty : her clemency will not interfere for those in- 
habiting on our territory; she may abandon or sup- 
port the others, as policy dictates, as her usage is 
on such occasions. That the time is at hand, when 
they will be swept from the face of the earth with 
the besom of destruction, is evident. The murders 
at the River liaisin have excited a spirit that cannot 
be quelled. To avenge her darling sons, Kentucky 
is again pouring forth her thousands of volunteers; 
they are to be headed by the venerable Shelby, in 
himself a host. The victory of "his majesty and his 
allies" at Frenchtown, was dearly purchased. They 
lost nearly as many men in manly combat as they 
killed of our people on the field, or slaughtered af- 
ter the battle. They have had a grand specimen 
of what Kentucky can do, but tave yet to feel the 
power of the generous freemen of that patriotic 
state. The hero of "King's mountain" will himself 
lead his western sons to battle and though latc,we 
deem it certain, that a just revenge will be exacted 
of the allied assassins, to serve us a beacon for future 
times to point at, and say, ** BKHOLD TUE HEWAUO

THE CHRONICLE. 

The British and Russians havf made pn.-nt exertions to di^taclj 
Austria from her alliance with France. A Russian envoy, prince 
Kin-akin, arriv. d at Vi-nnn on the 2r,th Dec. !! offered '.200,000 
nn 11 to dcd nd the Austrian territory, and 100,000 more to regain 
the former poss, -ssiim-, of th:t |)owV in Italy, All this mip;ht be 
snfi ly j'roposrd ; it would have been a happy event for Russia to 
IIHM- An\trin for a frontier. The proposition was rejected ; it was 
resolv<-d to increase thi army of r< serve to 120,000 men, and re- 
main faithful to tin- treaties with France. 

It is stated in a manner that pains our belief, that nn alarming 
mutinous sprit exists among the IJritish soldiery under lord Wel-

of almost every article in the country trade, have

has increased. Notwithstanding' the diminution of

IHITTTSH ACCOUNT. 

Head- Quarters, Kingston, Feb. 23, 1813. 

GENEHAL ORDI.US His excellency the commander 
of the forces, has the satisfaction of announcing to 
the army in British North America, the complete 
success of an attack made by lieut. col. M'Donnel of 
the" 1 Glengary light infantry, and the detachment 
stationed at Prescott, yesterday morning, on the 
enemy's position at Ogdensburg, which terminated 
in the capture of that place, and of t-1. ven pieces of 
cannon, and all the ordnance and marine stores, pro- 
visions and camp equ-.page, and the destruction of 
two armed schooners, and two gun boats. Such of 
the enemy garrison as did not fly to the woods, were 
made prisoners. 

The conduct of every individual engaged, and 
which includes the whole of the troops, regular and. 
militia, stationed at 1'rescott, appears to have been 
highly honorable to them. 

The following officers are particularly noticed by 
lieut. col. M'Dunm-11, as having distinguish* d them- 
selves captain Jenkins of the Glengary light int'an- 
trv, who the commander of the forces laments to 
find is severely wounded as also lieutenant Empy 
of the militia, who has lost a leg and lieutenant 
Powr-11 of the king's regiment, slightly wounded 
staff' adjutant Ridge of the king's regiment, who led

(Mr. Philip* J had left the vessel but a few minutes 
before the accident took place, at which time the 
magazine was locked, and the key left in a drawer 
in the cabin. The gunner, the only person on board 
who h;,d any business in the cabin, was on deck. It 
lias been said that fire was communicated by the 
snapping of one of the muskets, but that could not 
be the Case, unless the door of the magazine hud been 
opened.

CHARLESTON, April 2. 



Dreadful explosion Between the hours of ten and 

yesterday forenoon, a most awful explosion 

t*>k place in this harbor, on board the revenue schr. 

G'u//<^m,commanded by c<tpt. John II. Z$nu>n,Vhich 

had arrived the day before from a short cruise on 

>t, and anchored off the town. Captain Sil- 

liinan was on shore at the time ; he had given orders, 

on leaving the vessel, that the muskets and pistols, 

which were suspended in the cabin, should be exa- 

and cleaned. There were about 35 persons 

in all on board; of this numlmr about 10 on the 

r deck and in the cabin ; part of them em- 
in cleaning the arms. Thus situated, the 
;1 explosion took place; and in owe instant 

tole quarter deck of vessel, wiJi all those up- 
on it, were- hurled into the air. Some of the bodies 
Mere thrown nearly as high as the mast head of the 
.-.re drivt-n through the cabin and 

I upon the main deck. The whole stern of the 
Vessel was lorn down to a level with the water; the 
main-sail, which had ix-en hoisted to dry, was torn 
to rags, and the fragments of broken spars were 
skittered in all directions. As soon as the accident 
had happened, boats put off from th" wharves, and 
from the vessels lying near her, to the relief of the 
crew. Au attempt was immediately made to slip 
the cables and run her into one of the docks to pre- 
vent her from sinking, but before this could be ful- 
ly accomplished, the. fire in the cabin had commu- 
nicated to the main-sail and main rigging, at the same 
ti.nc the vessel was found to be filling very fast 
in this extremity, the wounded men were hastened 
in co the boats alongside, and by the time the persons 
on board could leave her, she went down stern fore- 
most, a few yards from the head of Blake's wharf.

BLOCKADE OF THE DELAWARE. 

On the 6th inst. according to the prospect held 
out in the last REGISTER, the British commenced a 
furious cannonade on Lewistown, which lasted for 22 
hours. It has been estimated that they fired 800 shot 
18 and 32 pounders, at the place, besides shells, car- 
cases, and the famous Cougreve rockets. Many 
houses were damaged ; but no loss of men on OUF 
side is reported. The shells fell short and the rock- 
ets passed over the town. The fire was returned 
wall good interest, and it is thought with great ef- 
fect, from an 18 pounder and two smaller pieces, ex- 
cellently served. At the beginning of the action, our 
stock of shot was short ; but the enemy furnished 
a plentiful supply, which fitted the calibre of our 
e.mnon exactly they were diligently collected and 
promptly returned. 

On tlu: afternoon of the 7th, there appeared a gen- 
eral arrangement to land, and a number of small 
vessels full of men approached the shore being 1 
gallantly met on the beach, tUey were called back 
i)v a signal from the squadron. On the 8th, the ships 
were anehored at the chops of the capes, with a sup-

from 8 to $10. Some articles of ordinary market-

for instance, this time the last year, were purchased 
at from 15 to 20 cents? they now sell for from 37 to 
50. These things are noted as memorandums. Wood 
will not maintain its present price.

THE CHRONICLE. 

The British loan required for the present year is 
40 millions equal to 177,600,000 dollars! 

George W. Erving, esquire, it is said executes the 
functions of charge d'aft'airs at Paris, since the death 
of Air. Barlow. 

Tlie Paris papers contain doleful accounts of 
Russia and its armies. 

The French continue to collect troops from every 
point, and march them towards the north. 

A senatus consultum had been passed to provide 
for a regency, in case of necessity, and to provide

assigned Thursday the 15th inst. for their consi- 
deration. 

A letter from Malta, 3d December, mentions, 

That the Plague rages in Constantinople most 
dreadfully the number of deaths per day, being 
4000. Mr. Morier, the British minister at that 
court, has written, that in two months, upwards of 
120,000 had been swept away by it. 
Extract of a letter to the Editor of the Weekly Re- 
gister, dated PinckneyviUe, March 20, 1813. 

" Yesterday I received letters from JN atchitochez, 
which inform me that an action took place on the 
19th ult. between the patriot or republican army, 
and the royalists, at Labuhia the latter lost ninety 
silled. So complete has been their defeat, that the 
Spaniards under Herera and Salcedo have broken 
up their camp and retired the former to the pro- 
vince which he commands, and the latter to San 
Antonio, where, it is said the inhabitants are pre- 
pared to oppose him, and join the republican stand- 
ird. Indeed, those best acquainted with tliat coun- 
ry, think the fate of Texas has been determined by 
he recent successes of the republicans. Since the 
ast battle, the royalists desert by whole companies, 
Colonel M'Cee died not long since, of a pulmonary 
complaint. 



To THE AttK.VTS OK Tllf; AY'Kl-.KLY llKGISTEH. A 

lifiiculty that was anticipated, has been partially 
ealized. At the close of the last volume nearly 
JUO p.ipers were suspended, for non-payment of the 
i years subscription. This needful procedure 
las been attended with a few unpleasant incidents; 
n part by not having received a return of names 
vith money trunsmitied, and in some casts, by not 
eceiving CUT/ return at all. The editor will be very 
hankful that his friends will give him such infbr,} 
mation as may prevent a recurrence of the difficul- 
y; as has been heretofore requested. 

The subscribers will please to recollect thatthe^ 
econd year's payment was due on the first duy of 
ast month.

icral. Has orders to a very larwfc amount to be sliip-

cinded. Has no dotibt that orders of this kind 
vhich are now in Manchester would, if executed, 
greatly i-elieve the distress of that place. Read :n 
mportant letter from his agent, an EngliKhrnan, in 
America, strtmg that manufactories are increasing; 

ay materially, in consequence of the non-im- 
mrtation system, ("vide .IftfieinlijrJ The state of 
)f the workmen in Manchester and the neighbor- 
iood is very deplorable, they are deficient in work,

rican trade was open, would not fear the competition 
of the American manufacturers in the market, as ho 
conceives they are only forced into that measure. Se 
veral adventures which he has made to South Ame- 
rica have left a considerable loss. Cannot state 
he proportion which the American market bears to 
the general manufactory of Manchester and its 
leighborhood, but from his general knowledge of 
ts vast influence "pon the manufacture in general, 
is convinced that the exports annually amount to an 
enormous sum. Has no doubt that if the American 
market was freely open, there would be full employ-

It never can be our wish to depreciate the brav?ry 
of our tars, or the talents of the officers who have 
; led them to victory. But we are persuad -d 
tint the enemv they have now io combat, is much 
: than even British seamen, accus- 

tomed to triumph, were ever taught to expect. Na- 
ture has undoubtedly stamped the character of se.i- 
: lh<- Americans by assigning to them agreat- 
3:1 than other people possess. The 
numerous rivers also, which How from the interior, 
form a navigation of itself, and must naturally dis- 
pose them to cultivate nur'.time pursuits. How mor- 
tifying, how humbling, therefore, must it have been 
MI to find all their ruvval projects counteract- 
ed by nation* at. a distance, whose claims to the un- 
~'ed commerce of the seas were much more 
ble than their own. Can it be a matter 
of snrpri-r that the inhabitants of a country placed 
in the> circumstances, should evince a su- 

perior courage when n opportunity offered of as- 
serting their lt-{rit.ini:1e rights by those who had .so

So ftr from restoring, the inhuman and crying out- 
rage was, by a public and avowed proclam.it ! 
clared ;md asserted to be a rule of action, which it 
was determined to persevere in. 

The rights of peace, which have been, in all ages, 
held sacred and paramount to tl 
even in the most barbarous times, have been, in the 
existing war, declaredly destroyed, and actually 
borne down bv the operation of this rapacious and 
jealous spirit of monopoly. It has not been permitted 
to neutrals to carry on their accustomed trade in time 
of peace. It has not been permitted them to carry on 
trade. It has not been permitted them to carry on a 
Ir.-.de in their own commodities. It has been dec! in d 
and enforced, that neutrals shall not carry on a trade 
with nations with whom they have P.O quarrel 
be<- i declared that the ships of all neutral nations 
must first touch at some port of a belligerent, and 
there pay a duty before they can proceed to any 
other port. Vessels pror.eedingon innocent voyages, 
with the products of the neutral nations only, have 
been interrupted on the high seas, captured, carried 
into port, and by a form assuming to be legal, con- 
demned and sold. An American ship, so seized and 
(vml'-mned, the offence charged, being no more than 
an intention to proceed to the ports of another na- 
tion, with his hatches unbroken, sent to the very 
nation to trade, with which it had been made crimi- 
nal to have intercourse, and, in the ports of that na- 
tion sold on account of the captors. 

During the oppression tints sustained by neutrals, 
in which the Americans had the principal .shave, and 

growing for twenty years successfully, every \ ear 
in.-, re oppressive than another, emissaries h;. . been 
employed to s'. imp insurrection in the bosom of neu- 
ti-.-i -<nd pacific, nations, and to produce civil war in 
order to favor this spirit of universal monopoly. la 
the parliament of the power, which is the fountain 
of all this tyranm, it has been avowed, in public de- 
, bv a minister of state, "tint the question in 



: ed the claimsof the \ tq relation to this monopoly is a question of commer- 

c.i.il calculation ; and '.hat although t lie nation might

lishing sueh a regul it. on m-rr commerce ;md on the 

t tint it vould suffer much more by abstain-

Extract of a fetter frcm Fort St^ddtirt, to rA 
of the Weekly Register, d 

"On or about the 10th inst. t^neral Wilkin- 
take, either peaceably or forcibly, possession 
town and citadel of Mobile, and the America 
ard will at last wave victorious over the venerable 
ramparts of Fort Conde. The great strength of this 
fortress (erected during the reign of Louis XIV.) 
m y be deduced from the circumstance of its having 
been defended several weeks by 80 men, against the 
united attick of 2000 under Don (ii.lvex, in 1780, 
and finally capitulated honorably. One hundred and 
fifty rations are said to be the* daily issues to the 
Spanish garrison, but I scarce think that the num- 
ber of troops can justify it. Be assured, the disas- 
ters of the North will nerer be repeated in our South 
Western army; for its commander prefers death to 
defeat, and all his officers are equally emulous of 
distinction ." 

NAVAL. 

Two British frigates are still hovering off Jioston. 
They were seen on the 16th. \Ve hope the good 
folks of that town may soon be gratified with a near- 
er view of them, escorted by some of our vessels. 

"We hear of frequent arrivals at Bermuda with 
provisions from the United States. The traitors 
may yet be caught. It is a desperate game. 

It is stated that two 74's, three frigates, and three 
sloops of war have sailed from Halifax to cruise in 
Jjoston bay. 

An officer of the JJcaata frigate, who lately board' 
ed a British-protected-American vessel, said, they 
expected 20 sail of the line and 40 frigates for the 
particular purpose of bombarding -Baltimore and 
Norfolk. We are pleased to say that nature has 
done much for the protection of those places, and to 
exprc.vs uur belief that the valor of the people will 
do the rest. 

A probable report prevails that the little Essex 
has captured a large British frigate, a razee. We 
only fear that Porter has not had the good luck to 
fall in with one. 

The frigate Macedonian, capt. Jones, completely 
rt'"d, has dropped down from New York for a cruise. 
, to the late ofhcers and crew of the H'(iaf> ! 

(treat apprehensions were entertained at London 
for the fate of the Mnnnc Ciioyenne, so long blocka- 
led by the Hornet. She is staved to h;.ve on board 
specie" and bullion to the value of 60G,000 sterling'. 
If she had not. been relieved by a ship of the lim 
/Mu'reacc would have had her. Her long detention 
hud caused insurance to be made upon her at 50 per 
cent. Such is the effect of our little navy in ./:// 

The British ship Valiant, of 74 guns, anchored off 
the Hook on the Friday evening. On Saturday 
norning the flotilla of gun boats, stationed at the 
Hook, under the command of commodore Lewis, got 
mder way and made towards her, when she set all 
sail and stood to the eastward before the wind.

It is with uncommon sensibility that the Editor

citizens and his own affairs, to notice the annexed 
ungenerous and ungentlemanly and wilfully f..l 3 c

not enough that tlie fm-eign enemy has stopped all 
intercourse with this place by wat?r, and cut off an 
immensely valuable trade, stinting even the commo- 
dities of ordinary marketing ? Shall an internal foe 
of the city, co-operating- wuh him, alarm those ac- 
cust'jrned to deal with us from the interior, and de 
:>troy tlie whole trade and curtail the supplies for the 
subsistence of the people of th;s populous citv ? I say

The whole, entire ami united object of the citizens

nature and compact; to accomplish which the ut- 
m->st harmony ^xists. with a tenderness of feeling, 
between gentlemen of different political sentiment, 
that reflects great credit on the general character

was so clear that the tribunals sentenced ni favov of

the right of validating- those de- 
. confii m a single one in favor of Sweden. 
the privateers calculating- on impuni-

not sufficient to condemn as pood prizes, the

In tlie course of the summer of 1811, there exist-

T rruich troops, a considerable military force was

a French privateer and nits of lyincistnrn, 

and respecting which it w:-.s proved that tlie Fi-ench 
were the first to insult and attack the soldiers of Po- 
merania, was considered in Paris as an infraction of 
the peace, and it was asked, as a reparation, that the 
soldiers of your majesty should suffer the pain of 
death. 

The Baron de Alquier presented, in the month of 
July, an official note, the contents of which, and its 



Swedish commerce ; and representations to the same j unnrciunspect style, produced an ansuer that pot

licity of your subjects and the prosperity of the 
M; and for Ur.s purpose your majc-ty gave 
free access in your ports to the vessels of all na- 
tions. 

France was not content with these attempts to 

Sweden in an open war against England and 

. The Aus'. r':an minister at the court of your 

v received from the ambassador of Austria at 

v.vartzenberg 1 , a courier with 

the news of there being concluded in Paris, anew 
alii :nce on '.he 14th of March lust, between that 
The prince of Schwartzenheig, 
Bended to the minister of his court in Stock- 
holm, that he shouh-1 exri-t all his influence, when he 
should communicate this intelligence to the minis- 
viMi- in j'-s-y, to obtain that Sweden should 
in HI.- u\.r ag. iiist Russia. V.-ur majes- 
,josal in the same manner as 
that you wished to pre- 
i'l.t' of your k'ngdom; that y 



mt to sink to the condition of the powers which, 
>n account of their being- subject to France, have 
:eased to have vessels, commerce Mid revenue. An 
.lliancc with France, requiring, as .soon as formed, 
he loss of independence, compels afterwards gra- 
lually to all the sacrifices winch annihilate the- p os- 
verity of a state. To be her ally it is m ce^sary not 
,o have any relations with England; to substitute 
or the revenue of the cusu/ms, and for the profits 
>f commerce-, unl. tinted contributions; to suppor. a 
maintained these eight years for political CH 
oric.es. Had Sweden subjected herself to the w.ll 
>f France, the Swedes would now be fighting in 

Spain, as the Germans, It dians and Poles are. 

I'hey would even have been earned to Turkey, had 
the emperor Napoleon conqueiea the emperor Alex- 
mder. 

If, in order to fix the destiny of Sweden, proctir- 
ng for her present security and future guar 
,-our nv.jesty should cause your armies to mme,

provinces, which are of no adv: ntage to the

dependence of that peninsula is th" constant ob- 

if th'-u- majesties the ject of the cares of- your m;jesty, and no sacrifice 
' can appear great to the Swedes" lor the purpose of 
obtaining so great and impert.'iu a result. Your 
'refused to sign the unworthy treaty that 
was proposed to you ; and disdaining low and crook-

Your m: j"s'\ formed a just opinion of 'he Swedes, 
and tin y, in Vet urn, confide, wuh perfect confidence

Extract <>f a letter from Walter Jordan, a non-com- 

missioned officer of the regulars at fort It ai>ne, to 

his -wife in Allegheny county, dated fort ft at/ne t 

October 19, 1812. 

" 1 take my pen to inform you that I am well, af- 
ter u long and perilous journey through the Indian 
country. Captain Wu: , and an hundred 

friendly Indians, left fort Wayne on the first of Au- 
gust to escort captain Ucald from fort Chicauga, as 
lie was in danger of being captured by the British, 
Orders had been given to abandon that fort, and re- 
treat to fort Wayne, a distance of 150 miles. We 
reached fort Chicauga on t''e lOt'n of August, and 
on the 15th we prepared for <m immediate march, 
burning all that we could not fetch with us. On 
the 15th, at 8 (/clock we commenced our march 
with our sm;.ll force, which consisted of captain 
,:, .md our lUU Confute Indians, captain 
I'OL) nun, ten women, and twenty children; 
in all 23J. \Vc had marched h-ilt a mile, when we 
were attacked by 600 I\ick;<poo and Wrnbago In- 
dians. In tn= moment of trial our Confute savages 
joined the sav.-g-- enemy, Our contest lusted ten 
minutes, \\heiievery man, wom.in and child Was 
killed except 15. Thanks be to dod 1 was one of 
those who escaped. Fust, they shot the feather of 
!n> <..p, next the epaulet from my shoulder, and 
tii. -n tlie handle from in\ swi.rd. I then surrender- 
ed to four f,..vage rascals. The Confute chief, tak. 
by ibe hand, and speaking I'nglisl, said, 'Jor- 
dan, I know vou, you gave me tob;.cco at fort 
\V..\ ne. We wont kill you, but come and see what 
we "will do uith your captain;" so leading me to 
\Wils lay, they CUl <l!' his head and put it on 



a l.-ng pole, \\iiile ano' -ut his Iicart and

t;.ky the- e/.rliest opportunity of giving notice, that 
he should, upon an early day, submit to their lord- 
ships, a motion relative to the naval administration 
of the country. Their lordships ought no longer to 
ref. am from instituting the proper enquiries. He, 
at least, would bring the subject before them; and 
in doing so, lie was actuated solely by a sense of du- 
ty, and a deep conviction of its necessity. 

Fi-am th'~ L'jnd'tti Star of March 20th. It is our 
painful duty to record another humiliating sacri- 
fice to the Americans, in the capture of the JAVA, 
one of the finest British frigates ever launched!-*- 
The Dauntless lias arrived at Plymouth from Ciib- 
ralt;ir, with the melancholy intelligence. 

While we lament this additional misfortune, it is 
some satisfaction to know, thai the brave men, who 
composed the crew of the Java, did their duty 
Her colors were not struck until her bowsprit and 
masts were literally blown out of her. She was a 
line French built ship, 7 or 8 years old, and was 
captured j.fter a gallant action, from the French, in 
the East Indies, about two years and an half ago. 

Our readers will perceive that the subject has 
bvc n promptly taken up in Parliament. Lord Darn- 
ley last night gave notice of a motion, which will 
probably have the effect, if not of explaining where 
the blame lies, at least of quickening' those opera- 
tions by which the American navy is to be kept in 
Hi' ck in future. 

From the London Pilot of March 20th. We lament 
most deeply to have to state, that another British 
frigate, the Java, has been taken by the American 
frigate Constitution. The Java was on her passage 
to the K.:.st Indies, having on board lieutenant-gene 



ral 



, who was going out as commander in chief 



to Bombay, together with his suite, ;jid a nun 
recruits and passengers, including some additional 
lieuti nants of the navy, insomuch that there appears 
not on this occasion that deficiency in point ol num- 
bers, which, in the prior instance's, passed for the 
principal cause of the success of the Americans. 
Tin- action was obstinately maintained; and the im- 



andtha' the Constitution, mounting thirU .24 pound-i imnse proportion of loss on our part, while it eon-

to cope wi'h iier. There i however a gros , 
tion intended to be practised by the paragraph from 



s'.le..^ us with the assurance of the unimpaired State 

of the rhar.ic'i ristic bravery of our seamen, af- 
fords an additional (yes an additional) reason to 
I. tin. nt the unli:i|<])\ result .that we have announced, 
.md an additional ground to reflect and to enquire 



seriously

her upper deck, is not an over match for 



ew enemy, so different from what thay have been, 
touching all others, that we have had hitherto to 
contend with. \Ve have not room to enter into this

to perform it. " If such is to be the character of this 
contest, and admirals Cockbiini and brigadiers Te- 
cuniseh shall continue thus to violate all the known 
usages of honorable war it is time, indeed, for the 
people to open their eyes to their true condition, 
and shut their ears to the Syren songs of Ji^itisk

spirit of the government. The villain-deed has rous-

in o a common bond for vengeance on the mcendia- 
r,! s. It has destroyed party; and, by a community 
of interests, effected what patriotism demanded in 
vain. 

Jfuvre-de~Grace was a thriving place, on the west 
side of the Susquehamm, about two miles from the 
head of Uie bay. It contained from 40 to 50 houses, 
and was the residence of several respectable fami- 

storehouses, a tavern, t'.vo or three dwelling houses, Les. The buildings were generally of wood. The 
with ; ind out-houses; deriving its whole! post-road from Baltimore to Philadelphia passes 

importance from being the 'stopping-place' of the' through it. A number of particulars connected 
land and w;oe,r i;ne of stages between Philade.lphia\vf\\\\ the destruction of the place, are inserted be- 



and li: There was a party of miliua from 

Elkton at J-'i'enchto-ivii, a little while before the at- 

it appears they had retired in

By later accounts it appears, there was a small 
a small party (40 or 50) of mditia at Ha-vre-de-Grn.ee 



but the force was too small to when the attack commenced; but they all ran-away 



have resisted the enemy, had" it remained. The 
dwelling houses were not Damaged and it is justice 
to the enemy to say, they treated the women and 
children with considerable attention and respect. 
Wanton outrage. On the morning of the od mst. 



while the great body of the people of 
were yet m their beds, nineteen barges from the ene. 
my's squadron suddenly appeared before the place, 
and, without a moment's delay, commenced a tre- 
rn; ndoiis discharge of shot, shells and rockets. - 
When the town had been bombarded about 15 min- 
utes, a party of marines were landed, whose first 
business it was to set h're to the buildings not yet in 
flames, which was done with all the deliberation 
that belongs to veteran incendiaries. Only a single 
house was left uninjured; and by far the grea'cr 
part are heaps of nuns Even the stages v. 
stroyed, and the passengcr^'baggage shared the com- 
mon fate. Many fled from their burn ing houses almost 
in a state of nudity, carrying in their arms their chil- 
dren, clothes, &c. The house thai was preserved be- 
longed to Mr. Pringle it was removed from the bo- 



save 8 or 10, without offering resistance. One of 
those that remained, a brave Irishman, long a resi- 
dent of the town, was taken prisoner, being seized 
in the act of loading his musket. Three of the ene- 
my were killed arid two wounded. One American 
was killed by a rocket. How the people escaped 
with their lives is truly wonderful. The enemy al- 
so destroyed several b.iy-craft, as well as the ferry- 
boats. From Jta-sri-ik-Gruce a party proceeded to 
Gtesswell's ferry, at tin- head of the tide water, six 
miles above, and desolated every thing within their 
reach. The church at Havre-de- Grace, at a consi- 
derable distance from the nver, was not fired; but, 
to shew their respect for 'religion? they assailed the 
house,and finding- nothing to steal "magnanimously" 
attacked the windows with brick-bats and stones, 
and demolished them.

this morning, they were all boughl to go to Lisbon ; 
1 cor.. e from Archangel, and they 
must all go to Lisbon, I presume, for their prices

it." The corn arriving from the Baltic in this 
mntry is shipped to the Veninsula, in consequence 
of the high pr.ces payable there since the American 
if the pi ice had remained as it was, it 
would not have gone from this country. The remit- 
tances from the Peninsula for flour sent from Ame- 
rica, are principally bills on the treasury at 30 days, 
so that it the price has advanced 50 per cent, it is 
so much additional expence to the government of 
tliis country for all they buy. The provisioi. 
America to ihc Peninsula, amount to seven millions 
or more. The commissary j^eneral buys the chief; 
but part is bought by other individuals, who go to. 
the commissary and he gives his b.lls for it. These

which prevented the landing of the troops at a clear 
iield, the scite of the ancient French fort Toronto, 
It prevented, also, many of the armed vessels from 
taking positions, which would have most effectually 
covered our landing, but every thing that could be 
done was effected. 

The. riflemen under major Forsyth first landed, 
under a heavy lire from the Indians'and other troops.

le'-'i-d his whole force in the woods near the point 
where the wind compelled our troops to land. His 
force consisted of seven hundred regulars and mili- 
tiu, and one hundred Indians. Major Forsyth was 
supported as promptly as possible ; but the contest 



was sharp and severe for nearly half an hour, and 
to the enemy were repulsed by a number far inferior 
theirs. As soon as gen. Pike landed with 7 or 800 men 
and the remainder of the troops were pushing for the 
shore, the enemy retreated to their works. Our 
troops were now formed on the ground originally

the party that done the mischief on the mouth of the 
Ohio. He killed eight of the party, and he had two 
wounded. Other information is speedily expected." 

We are gratified in being authorised to state that 
the president of the United States has conferred the 
brevet rank of colonel on lieut. col. James Miller of 
the 6th infantry, who commanded the gallant and 
successful detachment of the 4th infantry of volnn- 
te<-rs at the battle of Brownstown on the 9th of An- 
gust last ; and the brevet rank of major on captain 
Josiah Suelling, of the 4th infantry, who bravely 
held the van in that battle with no less credit to 
himself and success to our arms, than resulted from 
his good conduct in the battle of Tippecanoe. ' 
Those commissions give rank from the battle of

work erected; \viih two six and one 9 pounder in it;

The British vessels, one frigate and a tender ex-, 
cepted, went down the bay on Saturday evening 
last. Some part of them were lying a li'tle beloxv 
ii'pnUa, and scattered as far as the Potomac. The 
frigate and tender have since retired some distance 
down the bay. Their ravages continue stealing 
sheep and burning houses, with all sorts of acts 
of violence, are also daily committed on the eastern 
s'wre of the bay, and on its islands.

The w&ter-'fFinnebagoes (as the British in the 
Chesapeake are frequently called, by wav of dis- 
mction) have burned the village of Georgetown in 
v '</.>;/. .ml Fredericktmcn in Cecil county, situate op. 
posite each oilier on the Sassafras river. The for- 
mer contained between 20 and 30 houses; the latter 
fi-oni 15 to 20, nearly all which are heaps of ruins; 
They also burnt several small craft further up the 
river. 

We learn that the assault was led on by rear-admi- 
ral Cockburn in person, with 18 or 20 barges and 
about 700 men. 1 1 commenced by terrible discharg- 
es of rockets and great guns, charged with round, 
canister and grape shut, which flew in all directions. 
The towns were then stormed in succession, and 
every house plundered; even the negroes' cabbins 

being robbed of their supplies. What was not 

thought worthy of removal was w ntonh destroyed; 
the beds were ripp-cl open and the fe.ithers scatter- 
ed to the four winds of heaven; the looking-glasses, 
clocks, bureaus, bedsteads, &c. broken and'bat'er- 
ed to pieces. Which being done, the torch was 
applied, and the \vh >ie presented a sheet of flame. 
Afier these brilliant achievments, the enemy spn ad 
himself on the shoves, and burnt several houses.

unoi-f. The city councils, two or 

three w .Appropriated J2J,UOO, to be ex 

.j of a "committee ot 

supplies" for the defence of the port. On 

i in*t. this committee, In public notice, ad- 
:ie people to assemble in their several wards, 
and in the two precincts, for ihe purpose of appoint 
ing four citizens from each, to consult with them 
o.i matters of importance. These meetings were 
numerously attended on Saturday morning, and 
delegates appointed, with general instructions to 
vote liberally; it being understood the object of the 
convention was to faring about a loan. In the even- 
ing of the same day the convention met, all the dele- 

ent but one 

"A representation was made to the meeting by 

the "committee of supplies," setting forth the na- 

ture of the powers vested in them, the amount of 



After which seven gentlemen were added to "the 
committee of supplies," and the council a' 
journed. Thus, in ab'jitt 30 Aorrr.r, * 500,000 verc up- 
n -(jf>riated and obtained for- ihe deft net of liatiimort? 

\Ve learn that, among the objects contemplated 
: >y theeonunittee of supplies, is the organization of 
HI additional force of 2,000 men tor the special de- 
fence of the city, with liberal pay. This will, n>- 
deed, have a happy effect not only as a mere de- 
meusure, but in giving employ to many wor- 
v.hose usual means of support are cut 
irtailed by the blockade of the port. 

It is , :dd thatthr eonvent ion above al- 

luded to was composed of a body of gentlemen that, 
forwe.ilth and renpectability, will yield to no other 

assembly wliatever. There Was no diversity of prin- 
ciple among them, though th<-\ were of'diiler.-nt 
political sentiments and their proceedings h ,\e 
met with universal approbation. 

The following letters explain the object of the 
flag of truce that Was sent from Jiuttimore on Sun- 
>1 y last to the enemy-squadron .n the bay. We re- 
joice in the spirit it exhibits, rendered ntce-ssary by 
the high tone the enemy has assumed. Xo person 
will regret more than" we the application of this 
theory to practice, but it must be rigidly enforced 
if the enemy execute hw threats. Like causes pro- 



fluids placed at their disposal, and the necessity ot duce like efiects. It was thus that Washington, au- 
an increase thereof, together with a summary of the thorised by the old Congress, corrected the same ar- 



sen- ices heretofore performed by, and of those 
which it is probable would be required f them. 

"Whereupon it was resolved unanimously, that 
the mayor be requested to convene the city council, 
and to recommend to th-jin am ordinance, authoris- 
ing the borrowing whatever sums of money may be

precincts of B.dtimore,not exceeding Five Hundred

t may happen, that of the money i the said O'Neale, has been menaced with inv.

It is report /d that the squadron has been rein- 
forced by four fng-ates. 

A meeting of the citizens of Philadelphia has been 
held for the purpose of raising- u. voluntary fund for 
the additional defence of the bay and river JJela- 
ware the city council is also about to appropriate 
aome money for the object, $30,000 is spoken of. 
The money to be expended under counsel of thej

this county, and five or six miles from the point of 
the Cape, on the bay side, on Thursday morning- last,

Christopher Gore, esq.is appointed a Senator of

Mr. Lloyd. 

North Carolina election. The result of the late 
election for members of Congress is not clearly as- 
curtained. It appears thai nine republicans and four 
federalists are elected. In the last Congress JVor/A 
Carolina had 10 "republicans" and 2 "federalists**-** 
on the war question, Jane 4, 1812, five voted for war 
and thre-i against it, .md f.u.- members were absent 
when the vote was take i. 

J\c-.e-York election. It is admitted that governor 
Tompkins is re-elected by a majority of from 2 to 
3000 votes. In the senate an increased "repwblir 
can" majority is obtained, and the next council of 
appointment, we ure told, "must be republican,'* 
there being no "federal" senator from the middle 
or western district. Of the comnlexion of the as- 
sembly we are not yet informed the 'republicans 
have gained several members, and who will have a 
majority is doubtful. 

Virginia election. We have not yet all the returns 
members of congress from this state. It is tin- 



three hours; before 'the militia could be collected jderstoocl, however, that 18 "republicans" and 5 <4 fe- 



i-ient force to oppose them, they were, off', 
which will always be the case, unless we get assis- 
tance from some other quarter the inhabitants are 
scattered so far apart and our frontier of great ex-

Several companies of militia and volunteers have 
arrived at Baltimore, from the interior, for the de- 
fence of the c.tv, since our last; and the citizens, 
except those who have been drafted, a''- r.-liev. d 
from garrison duty. Brigadier-general .V/?7/<r, who 
commands the draf'ed militia nnd volunteers, will 
have a stationary force of 2000 men ; which, \\ith 
he physical strength of the city is supposed suffi- 
cient for any emergency. Defensive nifasures are 
still pursued with Alacrity, and on a scale commen- 
surate with the object.

TIIE CHRONICLE. 

A letter received in Baltimore, dated Fort *\ % ia$a- 
-a, -I/.'., -6, say;,, tiiat the squadron, with the troops, 
was to sad the next morning supposed for J-'ort 
Gear 

The late election for senators in ^fctusac'tuneUs has 
resulted in the cho.ce of 29 "federalist*" and 11 "re 
publicans." 

The thirteenth con?rei9. The house of represen- 

I will consist of [about] 1L> "republicans," 64 

" and J "i.oi.-di- .cripl:.." The se:ds of 2 

n returneil will U- contested. The se- 

ua!v has 56 members, <>f whom 22 ..re "republicans." 

Vv'e use the words republican and fedi-rali.it, for 

mere distinction sake ; meaning, generally, by the 

former, the supporters of the war against Great I>ri- 

tain. As all the elections have taken place since the 

\v:<r, the character or' ti e present ccngres^ will have 

a much more decided cast than the last. 

From a statement that 'may be accepted as nearly 
correct, it appears thai gov. T(,tnpk-ins ) of N'e\\'-York, 
has been re-elected by a ni \prity of 3,750 vnh 
The house of assembly has a reduced "federal" ma- 
jority; the senate iS almo-.t Mnanimously"reptiblican." 

Tlie "fld^ral" ticket for censors has j^rev.iiled in 
Fermoni t \jj A iuujojL\ty oflUOJ. 'i'ht cen>oi*a have no 



almost su>j)e::(!ed the necessity of a bridgi- over the 
Hudson, by ihes;:fety, convenience and regularity of 
their passage. Thr-e go to Albany, one i. Aml>oy t 
one to Ta])pan, one to Ilolioken, one, occasionally, to 
Elizabeth town (X. ,1.) and one 1 is building as a pac- 
ket to New.H.,ven (Con.) besides those for ferries. 

From the Cananduigna liejiository. A burning 
spring was discovered in Bristol, a few days since, 
on the land of Mr. Daniel Hurt, that excites the at- 
tention of the public. It was discovered by a tree 
being on fire, a limb fell into the spring, and set it 
on fire. It burns blue, similar to burning of spirits; 
the fissure in th rock is small, from which proceeds 
the inflammable air. The heat is so great as to boil 
a tea-kettle ;n 12 or 15 minutes; it has been tried 
ind eggs boiled in it The curious are requested to 
examine it. 

Wilkinson. We understand, (says the 
New-Orleans fjaxette of April 3) that the boat in 
which gen. Wilkinson took his passage for Petite 
Coiiquille, upset in the lake ; but that the general, 
his suite and the crew, were saved by a fishing ! o,t t 
hich picked them up after they had been 3 or 4 
hours on the keel of the boat. 

We learn generally from France, that the emperor 
h;is marched for ftussia with a powerful army. It 
:s stated that .Austria, alone, is to furnish him with 
150,000 men. 

L Muion papers to the 7th April have been receiv- 
ed at Boston. They say that an ?.v.v,'r/;m envoy has 
arrived in England to mediate, a general peace ; and 
ihat 2>J',/0 iroops and l''/,v;0 rockets were to be sent to 
*imei'ica. The Britiuli are said to bo preparing an 
expedition to Jlunover. A very excellent thing for 
their enemi --. 

Two Spanish s'lips of the line have arrived :.t Ha- 
vauna from VeraCruz, on their way to Cadiz, saul 
to have four and h:ilf millions of doll, rs on bo-.nl. 

A frigate had al ,o :;rri cd th re with specie. 

From these circumstances it would appe r as if the 
pa: riots in Ihe iK-.ig.iborhood of the capital (Mexico) 
had \,i en driven back, for they had for several months 
stopped the intercourse between VeraCruz and that 
city.

our condition and such our danger, v hen the law 
celved the. assent of the legislature. Shortly after 
its adjournment, the general government, having in 
conformity with its power and duty, taken 
itself, the defence of the state, sanctioned the course 
pursued by the executive in calling out the militia, 
authorised* such further detachments as might be

On motion of Mr. Good-u'i/ii, it was resolved that

witlj which .Mr. Clay prefaced the following

"The resolution was adopted without opposition or 
m. 

then ro-,e, :nd the several 
t.ons adopted in committeeof the whole 
to by the house. 

After these resolutions were agreed to 
Mr. Grosveuor moved to rrcon.side.r- the resolution 
moved in committee by the Speaker, for the purpose 
of amending it. Quoting the message (if the pre- 
sident, he said that the barbarity of the enemy 
was herein contrasted with the humanity which had 
characterized the w..r on our part, lie wished to 
see the evidence on this head also, and therefore 
was desirous of amending the resolution, if re-con- 
sidered, by adding-, af er the words "by the cncmjf 
thev. ords "and l>ii t /us nation." 

Mr. Dexha snggesU-d the propriety of recommit-

solve (Mr. Speaker Clay) might have an opportu-

Mi-. Grosvenor suid he had not the slightest objec- 
tion to tins course, lie also intimated a disposi- 
tion to wither iw the motion he had made; but, 

Mr. )\'right took the floor. He was opposed to 
the proposed re-consideration, principally because 
he thought the amendment suggested would cast a 
reflection* by insinuation, on the conduct of our 
oih'cers. He Was not disposed at this moment to 
give his sanction to a procedure which would be a 
libel on our land and naval officers, who had distiiv 



Mr. n.ncson, the house resolved it-j guished themselves during 1he war, as much by 
tee of the whole, Mr. Afucon in their humnailv as by their valor. The s::iii<- p< n 

which recorded the great exploits of our navy, would 
ivmrd the humanity along wjlh the brav-ry of its 
officers. [The Speaker here apprised Mr. \V. that 
he had misunderstood the gentleman from X. York, 
if he had .supposed him to h ive cast any imputa- 
tion on the conduct of our officers.] Mr. W. then 
said In: wished to know, that he might act under- 
standingly, whether it was intended to insinuate or 
.suggest that there had been any impropriety of 
conduct on our part; or whether, in referring the 
subject to a committee, it was intended to state any 
facts, or shew any cause in support of that refer- 
ence. He hoped theresoUe would not be reconsi-

thirteen year's annuity of one and a half per r

them requiring a si^ per cer.t. Mock at the rate of 
88 per cent. On these terms, leaving to the sub- 
scrihers the option, the loan *':,s effected. In con- 
formity with the public notification the snme terms 
were extended to those persons who had subscribed 
pit the first opening of the subscription, and they 
have the same option ; which, if tlie stock at the 
rate of 88 percent, be taken, is equivalent precise- 
ly to a premium of 13 dollars and 63 cents and 7-11 
of a cent for each hundred dollars loaned to govern- 
ment. The enclosed papers under the letter (H.) 
are copies of the several public notices given on the 
subject, and a statement of the monies respectively 
obtained by open subscriptions and by written pro- 
posals, and shewing also the sums obtained and 
payable in each place where subscriptions were 
opened. 

Of that sum of sixteen millions of dollars thus ob- 
tained on loan,there was paid into the treasury, prior 
to the 1st of April, 1^13, the sum of $ 1,086,737 50 
which makes apart of the monies receiied previ- 
ously to that day as stated in tlie statement (A). 

The resources for the residue of tlie }e.ur 1813, 
consist of the following items, viz. 

1. The remainder of tlie loan a- 

bovc mentioned $ 14,913,262 50 

2. The sums payable on account 
of customs, and of the sales of pub- 
lic lands, estimated at 9^320,000

the vessels anchored \vitliin naisket .slu/i or' the

n tl,c' batteries, they were completely siie^u 
abandoned. 

t)ur troops tlu-n advanced in three brigades, the 
advance k-d by col. Scott, and landed near the fort, 
which had been silenced by lieut. Brown. The ene- 
my, who had been concealed in a ravine, now ad- 
vanced in great force to the edge of the bank to 
charge our troops. The schooners opened so well- 
directed and tremendous a fire of grape and caiuiis- 
ter, ihat the enemy soon ivuvated from the bank. 
Our troops formed as soon as they landed, and imme- 
diately ascended the bank and charged and routed 
the enemy in every diix-ction, the schooners kcc ping 
up a.constant Well-diiected fire upon him, in his re- 
treat towards the town. Owing to the wind's hav- 
ing sprung up very fresh from the eastward, whir.li 
caused a heavy sea directly on shore, I \\as not ena- 
bled to get the boats off' to land the troops from the 
Madison and Oneida, before the first and second 
brigades had advanced. C;tpt. Smith with the nia. 
rines landed with col. M 'Comb's regiment, and I 



i.mt, with about 350 of had prepared 4UO seamen, which I intended to land 



with myself, if the enemy had made a stand; but 
our troops pursued him s ( o rapidly into the town and 
Fort (ieorge, that I found there was no necessity for 
more force ; moreover, the wind h.id increased so 
nuch and hove such a sea on shore, that the situa- 
i'n of the r!eet had become dangerous and critical.

of one of the officers prisoners, to look on a 
certain point on this side, to ascertain whether one 
of iheir officers were not wounded there; and short-

us with a narrative of his sufferings, which we >ub-

conduct towards him, it is necessary to bear in mind 
that the motive of general Harrison for sending him 
with a fag oi' truce, was supposed to be to obtain 
permission to bnry the dead, killed at the river 
Raisin ; a request which humanity could not refuse, 
but which prudence forbid Proctor to grunt. Hence 
, w;i* treated in such a manner, as to prevent 



a repetition of the request.

On the 31st of January last, 1 was ordered by ge- 
neral Harrison to proceed to the river Uaisin, with 
a flag of truce, and from thence to Maiden, if not 
stopped by the Indians. We arrived at the foot of 
the rapids of the Mi;, mi at dark, and not finding A 
company of rangers as expected, we encamped in a 
cave, the horse and car iole before the door, and a 
flag standing by them. About midnight the Indiana 
fired in upon us, killed Mr. Lemont, wounded my- 
self in the foot, ard made us prisoner?. After dis. 
patching Mr. Lsmont with the tomahawk, scalping 
and stripping him, they seized my horse, harness, 
great coat, blankets and other cloathing, and one 
hi,.i.uvd dollars in geld, which the general h:

THE CHRONICLE. 

A if-t'er from St. Iitirihclomcii:- t dated May 1, says, 
"Official information has just l>een received from 
Sweden, of the cession by Great Britain to our go- 
vernment, of the islands of Guadaioupe and St. Mar- 
tins the Swedish flag will lie much respected." 

Fourteen ir.erinoes, lately sheared near Hudson, 
New-York, produced Il0l!/s. of the best wool. Six 
oi Uiem gave 60lb3. loz. one ram having- 131bs. Monday last. 



7th J\Taii, 1813. I have but one mo- 
ment before the express leaves this for Natchez to 
write you. Santa Antonio is taken by the revolu- 
tionary army under the command of general Ber- 
nardo ; and gov. Salcedo (ihe governor of the pro- 
vince,) Hierera and twelve other officers and men 
have been executed. 

Salcedo's force was twelve hundred men ; Ber- 
nardo's army consisted of :,bont the same number, 
but five hundred only were in the engagement. 
Thus tlie campaign of S^nta Antonio has ended in 
the entire revolution of the province of Texas. 
Those who may be supposed to be best acquainted 
with the situation of the other provinces composing 
the intendancy of the captain-general, and of the 
disposition of the people, think that little resist- 
ance will be opposed to the republicans in the inter- 
nal provinces. 

An English paper says that the Duke of Clarence 
has opened a treaty of marriage with the youngest 
sister of the emperor Alexander. "Mother Jordarf* 
is about to be cast off at last, though she has many 
children by the duke. 

It seems' the celebrated count DKCRIT.LIOX, an as- 
sociate of JOHN HKNHT, has been arrested and com- 
mitted to prison in London, under the alien act. 

We now have a complete copy of the French KI- 
and, as it is one of the most valuable statistical 
papers we have latterly seen, it shall be inserted en- 
tire, as soon :*> may be. 



POSTSCRIPT. 

A postscript to a Jlurlington paper of June S, says 
that the U. S. naval force on Chumplain, has proceed- 
ed up the lake for the lines, to attack the enemy. 

Hevend large bodies of troops are marching' for 
Racket? s Harbor. It is positively stated that gen. 
Sheafte is arrested, to be sent to England. 

Com. llecutiir has sent officers and men on shore 
at JVVw-/,o7/rfow, to improve the batteries. Eighty 
pieces of cannon were mounted at Fort Croton or;

Attachments and Antipathies. 

"Enemies of EXOLAXD and MONACO UY." 
The words of our motto were p;-e;"civd in serious 
charge against the +s;iierican peoplf, twelve or^f- 
u y<-:,rs at^o, in a Jloston news-paper. Late Ir.ci- 
dcn's have brought them to recollection; HIV! as 
they happened exactly to suit a su!\j-vi a!io; t t nliich 
we would say something', I chose them for an 
of my remarks. 

The old leven of royalty, -still existing 1 , creates 
nany ferments in the United States ; though the 
)ld stock of king George's men has chiefly di'.-d o<F, 
ind few of us had the lionor to be, born the " good 
subjects ofhis, majesty." The ever-to-be-lam 
eturn of the tories, after the war, revived the al- 
most discarded prejudices of the people in f.^vor of 
hat abominable system of government, ;;nd i 
i rallying point from which our institutions have 
i(-rn assailed ever since. "With the gratitude of the 
serpent that killed the child of the husbandman who 
a.ved it from the frost, :uul warmed it into life, by 
is fire, the grand object of the fugitives return^ 
d was to oppose and pcrple.x the rrfmdL'c, <lia<, 
'is they then said, and as same of them yet say, "the

the ./tri'lixh , the great influx of Hritish merchants, 
agents, runners, ufi uid all the circumstan- 

ces ol'tradi- \\ith the habits of social life, founded 
a foreign injfrnce tli it n'ill be f'.-li 'for og f 's, it

more powerful huwr interest ;oid frefing. There is 
'io .{.<( o.iutlri.r lor our prejudices. The Hritish his-

clous of the i>!eas of our fathers as to their habits 
and certainly an Ii-lnh ploughman could argue as 
profoundly in favor of hawling by tJic tui', as the best 
i)l'K>d' d tory could speak in support of a monarchy ;

acknowledged fool.

art to raise certain companies of r: : - k'itii* 

offered some resolutions, having for their object the 
better regulation of matters concerning contested 
elections; and the remainder of the day was spent 
in discussing the claims of Messrs. Hungerford and 
Taliaferro, to a seat in the house. 

, June 15. Nothing of importance done. 
Several resolutions were referred to several com- 
mittees, and many private petitions disposed of. 
The contested election between Messrs. Hungerford 
rind Taliaferro being under consideration, the iiou.'e 
refused to agree wilh the report of the committee 
of elections 82 to 73, so that Mr. II. is confirmed in 
his seat. 

Wednesday, June IB, On motion of Mr. Fink (of 

Yt.) the report of the commit ie^ of elections m the 
case of Messrs. Hungerford and Taliaferro, was re- 
committed reversing the point settled yesterday. 

Mr. Fink (of X. Y.) otic red the following resolu- 
tions which were referred . 1. That the naval com- 
mittee be instructed to enquire into the expediency 
of procuring such number of row bouts orgallies, at 
-.hey may deem exptxlient to aid in the defence of our 
maritime frontier. 

2. That the same committee be instructed to en- 
quire into the expediency of equipping fort!

not now in actual service, 

3. That the committee on military affairs be in-

provisions are required In law for the better de-

save yourselves the trouble of asking for a surren-

gen. Harrison and major Chambers, of the British 
army, who was sent by gen Proctor to demand the 
surrender, was as nearly as can be recollected, as 
follows : 

Chambers Gen. Proctor has directed me 
to demand the surrender of this post. He wishes 
to spare the effusion of blood. 

(y'.'n. Harrison The demand, under present cir- 
cumstances, is a most extraordinary one. As gen. 
Proctor did not send me a summons to surrender on 
his first arrival, 1 had supposed that he bgJieved me 
determined to do my duty. His present message 
indicates an opinion of me that lam at a Joss to ac- 
count for. 



Chomoert Hen. Proctor could never think 
of saying any thing to wound your feelings, sir. 
The character of gen. Harrison, as au oih'cer, is 
well known. Gen. Proctor's force is very respecta- 
ble, and there is with him a larger body of Indians 
tli at have ever be- fore been embodied. 

Grn. Harrison I believe I have a very correct idea 
of gen. Proctor's force, it is not such as to create 
the least apprehension for the result of the contest, 
whatever shape he may be pleased hen-after to give 
to it. Assure the general, however, that lie will ne- 
ver haw this post surrendered to him upon any terms 
Should it fall into his hands, it will be in a manner 
calculated to do him more honor, and to give him 
larger claims upon the gratitude of his government,

P. S. June 8. The enemy's fleet has passed this 
alace two ships and four schooners. 

Extract from a private letter, dated Fort George, 
8th June, to the secretarv of \vur. 

"The enemy, considering himself pursued, took 
post at the road of the lake, waiting the arrival of 
Proctor (who has left Malden)and taking the chance 
of other succors from below. 

11 Winder was detached on the 1st inst. to dislodge 
him. He carried with him his own brigade and one 
regiment from Ioyd's brigade. On Thursday Chand- 
ler (for whom the command was intended) follow- 
ed with the remainder of Hovel's brigade. The Bri- 
tish general Vincent anticipated the blow, and at- 
tacked our troops at 2 o'clock in tlie morning of the 
6th. Chandler and Winder, and the deputy quar- 
termaster-general Vandeventer,were made prisoners 
early in the action. The command devolved on col. 
Burn of the dragoons. The enemy v, ere beaten and 
routed, leaving two hundred and fifty behind but 
according to our northern tactics, \ve disdained to 
press a beaten enemy. We gave him time to col- 
lect and fight once more. Lewis and Boyd are un- 
der marching orders for the command of the ad- 
vance. Our loss does not exceed thirty." 

FruTHKH I'AHTiruLAUs, from the private corrcspon* 
deuce of the Kditors of the Baltimore "Whig" On 
the 1st inst. gen. Winder with his brigade went in 
pursuit of the enemy, who took a position about 48 
miles from Fort George. Several bodies from Chand- 
.1 Jlfiytfx brigades were sent to reinforce him, 
under general Chandler, who had the command. 

"From the forty-mile creek (say these letters) we 
learn that, the affair at Stony Creek was very serious. 
The confusion was great. Some spy or deserter hav- 
ing procured the countersign at our encampment, 
went to the British camp, and in 5 minutes after lie 
entered gr-ncral Vincent's tent, the English army 
was in motion. Our camp was entered without op- 
position, by means of thu aforementioned treache-

*Th mode of elect ion in J\'e-zu'Jcr;;ey, was changed five or six days before the last election, from a 

' 're. Federal majority a fe\v hundred only, at the last election. 
ublican majority ditto. 

.-Jersey present a strange contrast in the different effects of the two systems of 

election. And, the whol :, points out the j^rcat necessity there is for an alteration of that part of the con- 
stituti ' Stales that refers 'to the subject, so that the members may be all chosen in some 

1 .!itt best, in our humble opinion is, by districts ; to elect one member each, and no more. 

APPROPRIATE NOTICES. 

, Massachusetts, Illiode- Island and Connecticut, are federal in all the branches of their 
iii.-ir united majorities of votes are from 15 to 17,000. 

rth'C&rolina, South- Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky ^ Tennessee, Ohio, 
iiblicau in all the branches of their government ; and their united majorities of 
' 

i:\'Z7-? have republican governors. The republican majority in the former state 
:i:tll ; yet the first has a fed< rat house of assembly, and the 
' ure. 

election, had :i decided republican majority* yet every branch of the 


/.c-3; the senate is republican- and, in the whole 
from 6 to 8000. 

'end, therefore, the minority rules the majority. These are the 

only . Their united majority of republican voi.es may be fairly 

-TJ but in longres?, these states are supposed to be represented by 16 republican;- 

Tin: rcpiibhctiii majority in J'^n^.^h-ania is equal to all ihe federal majorities united, twice told -

in. A\ h..lt ' j;a.st 3 on Sunday morning, 
capt. T. with 15 boats, swept down within a miie 
and a half of his object, and opened a sharp fire on 
tiic frigate. The morning was calm and his shot ap- 
peared to take complete effect. The cannonade last- 
ed an hour and a quarter on Loth sides, and the ^- 
lishntcn v. ure silenced; when ihe other frigates 
caught a breeze, and came to her relief. All xl.ree 
then opened a trt-mendous fire on the boats, who yet 
maintained the comest for half an hour 15 guild 
against 150; after which they retired with \l. 
of only one man killed, to Craney Island. It is stat- 
ed as the opinion of all the officers, that the head- 
most frigate must have suffered very severely, and 
that she would inevitably have fallen into our hands 
n the weather hail continued calm. The affair has, 
at least, matei-iall) changed the belief of many as to 
the efficacy of this species of force for harbor de- 
fence. 

Admiral frnrrenwas at anchor off Hampton, on 
the 22nd. Cockburn has shifted his flag- to a frigate; 
three of which, with 6 small vessels and some barges 
appear full of troops perhaps for some burning ex- 
pedition. 

Later. Between 1 and 2 o'clock of the 21st. 5 
frigates, 3 sloops of war and many small vessels 
were under a press of sail, as if for Norfolk. Alarm 
guns were fired, and every thing put in readiness 
tor them. But they moored across James river, in, 
full view of tlut town, and so remained till a o'clock 
the next da}'.

"The enemy tki morning approached Crany Isl- 
and, ami commenced an attack, which lasted about 
ue hour they were beaten off. Some fortifications 
now preparing there are in an unfinished state ; the 
probable object of the British is to destroy these 
works, obiam water and fresh provisions. 1 have 
ju-t received orders to "turn out," the enemy having

the existing influences in the national administra- 
tion. 

The question, touching the admission into the 
union, of states, cr^'.ed in territories, hing with- 
out the ancient limits of the United States, has been 
considered by your committee, in relation to consti- 
tutional principles and political consequences H\, 
an act of the ctuigre.-.s or' the United States, pasx, d 
tl eSthd.iy of April, 1S1J, entitled "..n ct for the 
admission of tin- strtte of Louisiana into tiie union, 
and to extend the laws of the United States to the 
s aid state," the said state of Lou admit- 

ted into the mion on an equal footing with the other 
states. This act was, in the opinion of your com- 
mittee, a manifest usurpation by the concuss '{"tlie 
United States of a pouer not granted to that body 
In- the federal constitution. The state ot Louisiana 
was formed, in countries sititnted bctjnnd the limits of 
the old (JnUcff States, according as those limits wf-rr 
established by the treaty of Pans, commonly Called 
the treaty of peace, in' the \ear 17>S.>, and 
existed at the time of the formation and adoption of

strongly corroborates this idea ; indeed, in the opi-

monstrable as to amount, in their minus, to" cer-

Such was the situation of the United States, at 
the time of the adoption of the constitution, that 
the admission of new states, in countries beyond the 
old limits of the United States, does not appear to 
nave been contemplated as an event probable or even.

i he land side, I p:-,xve led with the infantry compa- 
nies to the road, in o.- 1- most effectually to coun- 
ter act the designs of the enemv in that quarter, but 
had not gained the desired point of destination be- 
fore the muskets of the foe assailed our troops from 
a skirt of woods, ne.T where the riflemen, under 
capt. K. Servant, had been placed, and who for soie 
considerable time, \\ ith much colness,Hnd no doubt, 
excellent etf'ect, kept them in check. From our line 

>f march in column through a field where we were 
attacked, I immediately formed a line and advanced 
by quick time towards the woods, where the inva- 
ders had formed. We had not proceeded far in this 
line before the enemy opened a heavy and constant 
fire of grape and other shot upon us. The view of 
the enemy's troops which 1 now took, rendered it 
necessary on our part to form again in column, and 
endeavor to gain the wood, now within one or two 
hundred yards. IH endeavoring to obtain such a po- 
sition, our troops were necessarily, for a short time, 
exposed to the fire of the enemy."" Major Crutch- 
field then mentions in very high terms, the conduct 
ot capt. Shields and his company ; and concludes by 
observing, that the enemy, pursuing the rest of OUE 
troops with rapidity and success, a retreat took 
place. This despatch was written at thu H df Way- 
House, from whence our army proceeded to York. 
Maj. Corbin was wounded in the arm and leg, at the 
head of his column. Captain Pryor, for whose safe- 
ty major Crutchfield expressed great apprehension, 
after ha dling the enemy most severely, at the batte- 
ries, spiked their own cannon,swam across the creek, 
and retreating, in the rear of the enemy, arrived in. 
our cajnp with the most of his brave men. 

Mfjud'tii, 28//i Jtide, 181*. 

An official despatch, received this morning by he 
Executive, from major Crutchfi"id, states the force 
')f th". en-my, who attacked Hampton <,n the 25:ll 
to have be-ii upwards of 2.500, of whom 400 were 
rijh'wni. Our loss did not exceed 20, while Uiat of 
ny, was at least 200. The Uritish force now 
.t Hampton, is between 4 and 5000. This account 
if the loss of the enemy, and of his force, which 
v\a-> at first communicated by three French desert- 
ers (O.K- of whom is an intelligent lieutenant) was 
e.->iifir:n( d by three IJritish deseriers who arrived at 
amp, just as major Crutchficld was about to close 
'tis I -tier. The enemy is pillaging in all directions, 
in I determined to mount all the horses he can col- 
lect, with riflemen, and pursue our little army. 

In addition to capt. I'pyor, of the artillery, capt,

The scliooner E:i#le, which sailed from this port on 
the I5tli, was takm by the enemy's barges at New- 
London, on Friduy. at huh' l:.st "two o'clock ; but 
o\vin^ to adverse winds the enemy were unable to 
tow the schooner alongside the squadron. The car- 
..Ueinpting' to begot out into lighters ; in 
doing which an explosion took place, which kilted 
upwards of 100 of the enemy. Not :t vi->tijr t . O f 

1, boats or mm was to'br seen. Tli 
.it anchor u the time, about 7 miles from 
N I Lotion; and one frigate hove in sight ahout 
sim-,ct. Tin- bouts were from the It:<miliis 74. 
It is stated that com. Hardy has sent ft H:tg to 
nlon to ascertain whether the blowing up of 
the K glc was clone with the S-IH-TI.UJ of government 
.'ing, if it was, he will di-> . thing 

that Hoats. Torpttloes, as well as i?iin~/i'it.<, "appear 
to be gaining a character. It was expected the selioo. 
Her would have ht-en t:;ken alongside of th, 
lit-s, to discharge hercar-o, as the custom was but 
the swell of the sea prevented it, and saved that 
ship. Some other experiments may teach his m..jes- 
els to keep a more respectful distance from 
our shores. 

Capt. Hardy informed the master of a fishinp- 
smack, that he had lost nine men bv t!,, 
and was determined to destroy al'l tin- craft that 
comes in his way, until the cause was explained.'
