HEAD-QUAnR.Tlns, ? Before St. Marks,
Division South, 6th April, 1818.
SIm-To castisc a savage foe, who, combined
; with a lawless band of negro brigands, have for
.some time past been carrying onacrdel and un-
provoked war against the citizens of the United
StateF, ha. compelled the President todirect me
to march my army into Florida. I have pene-
trated to the Mickasuky towns and reduced them
to ashes.
In these towns I found many indications of a
,hostile spirit. On a red pole in the centre of
lthe Council 11 .- C. -.I b..: -:. ", town, more
thlian fifty 'resh *1 .. i,!H .- m the infant
to tie aged matron, were found suspended.
la add,,tion to this, upwards of three hundred
old scalps were found in i ..t' I,,,, of thedil-
frett chiefs settled on the Mickasuky pond.-
These barbari as, who escaped death, have fled.
I lum ;,iiuro)A mi biitii icnted by the Gover-
nor of Pensacola to two of my captains, Gordon
'.und Call, I was idinced to believe they had fled
to St. Marks for protection. The Governor sta-
ed that the Indians and negroes had demanded
of you large -upplies of munitions of war, with a
"h:r::t, in tie event of a refusal, of taking pos-
,, -on of your fortress. He further expressed an
.-pprehennion that, from your defenceless state,
.liey wero already in possession of St. Marks.-
T ie wife of Chumnubby, a noted chief, now a
rnsoner in my camp), informed me, that the hos-
ite ln.fiai'. and naegroes obtained their supply of
nam nauitiol if'oa, St. Marks.
To prevent the recurrence of so gross'a viola-
:",, ofilfeut rahly, and .o exclude our savage ei-
fries irom so strong a hl Id at St. Marks, I deem
't expedient togarri. on ihuat fortress with Amer-
can troops, until .- ofthe present war.-
This measure is a ..t i on the immutable
pAncipile of self-defence, and cannot but besatis-
..jctor tMider existing circumstances, to his
"-\Lllolhi ..i tle .'.....1"Spain. Under ex-
isting treaties between our two governments, the
K iugcf pain .is bound to preserve ini peace with
..ie citizens of the United States, not only his own
vheets, but all Indiani tribes rcsidinp: withinhis
Be:rilory. When called upon to fulfil that part
ithe treaty in relation to a savage tribe who
have long depredated with impunity on the A-
mierican frontier, incompetency is ailedged, with
an acknowled;nent, that the same tribe have
acted in open hostility to the laws, and invaded
the rights ofhis Catholic. Majesty. As a mutual
encxy therefore, itis expected that every facili-
v wi!l be afforded by the agents of the King of
Spain to chastise these lawless atid inhuman Fav-
ages. In this light is the possessionof St. Marks
Oy the American forces to be viewed.

ver get a meal of :;t and during the last live 1
months they have had only one third bread,
no cocoa, and no pease : the deficiency is b
wholly made up of rice. Dysentery, conse-
quently, prevails much; and all the vessels f
hae lost. many menm ; the Mosquito has lost i
about 23 in three months, and the Conqueror 1 s
has scarcely seamen enough on board to work '
the ship. But notwithstanding this weak -
state the squadron has furnished 300 men to
assist in building a new house for Bonaparte,
of the most capacious dimensions. The sea-
men, after the days work is over, are marched d,
to another part of the island, to be encamped i
for the night. Every ship furnishes guard-
boats, which row round the island, and as they
approach the various points, are always chal-
lenged by the sentinels. A short time since, F
one of the sloops of war, in working to wind-
ward of the island, discovered two men in a
cave on the shore; she accordingly sent a
boat, and brought off two Yainstock (native)
Negroes, who had been fishing; and who, it
appeared, used to get to the beach from the
top of the Cliff by a secret but dangerous path.
A new battery was consequently immediately
erected, and it was by this unknown outlet, it
is said, that the Great Man was to be carried
off. We are constantly amused with stories
of schooners hovering off the island ; the ci ui-
sers certainly sometimes see such, but never
board them. A transport froni the Cape late-,
ly passed one close, lying to, to windward,
about 80 miles from the Island, which took no
notice of her; she might, however, have been
slaving, or looking out for Spanish or Portu-
guese Indiamen : she was a large long schoo-
ner of 18 guns, and apparently full of nien.--
The troops here are more healthy than the
seamen are ; many casualties, however, oc-
cur among the former-several sentinels have
been lost by falling over the cliffs."-IHamp-

Has usher'd in another year;

Still, to the good old custom true,
come to pay my annual due;
And as to you, my friends, belong
Th' usual tribute of a song,
I haste, with more of zeal than rhyme,
My poor odd notes again to chyme.
Alas! 'midst sleet and ice and snow,
How can the liquid numbers flow ?
Instead of soft distilling strains,
Flowing like streams in sumniaer rains,
I fear, that forth from brains of lead,
They'll fly like snow-balls'gainst your head.
But jests apart-shall a poor wight,
With heavy heart and pocket light,
Attempt to mount Parnassus height ?
Still, on your lenity relying,
Sure there can be no alarm in trying;
So, good or bad, your News-man's lay
Shall greet you, on this New-Year's day,
As back the parting glance we turn
With honest pride our bosoms burn.
Our country-dear to every heart,
Where manly feeling bears a part-
Is bless'd with peace, with plenty crown'd,
And golden prospects smile around.
The hnsbandman, with joy elate,
Surveys his pleasing, happy state;
Sees waving harvests bless his toil,
And sows again his teeming soil:
Lord of the hill, the vale, the wood;
Thanks the kind Author of all good,
That no rude lordling, from his hand,
Strains the fair product of his l.nd.
Fair commerce too unlades her stores
Upon our busy, bustling shores:
No southern wind, no eastern gale,
But brings to port some home-bound sail;
Giadd'ning the merchant's throbbingbreast,
And uiiling 'an-ious care to rest.
Tihe hardy seaman ploughs the deep,
Wheire allowss roar and tempests sweep ;
Spreads wide his canvass to the wind,
And l haves the joys of hom-e behind;
Sees olher climb s, breathes other air;
Whilst suiiing hope, vwith aspect fair,
Cheers him, am d the tempest's roar,
That soon again his native shore
lhiall bless his longing eyes once more :
WVhilst wealth, with tantalizing dream,
The sordid miser's nightly theme,
Plays round his pillow 'midst his sleep,
And smooths the hor'-ors of the deep.
Would that each keel which ploughs the
Were in pursuit of honest gain; [main
W/ouldi that our country's stripes and stars,
WTcrv. not employed in pirate wars;
Nr tlha;t poor Afric' injur'd race
--Cold cast upon our name d;-, r .. ',
But 'ruth forbids that we should hide
Those loathisome deeds which wound our
,ride.
Oli Africa! what heart of steel
Do'. i! thy nu'r'rous ivj'ries feel!
At: idl we, basking in the rays

Io 0 can we raise our voice to helav'n,
In ,;ankfulness for freedom giv'n ;
How, in a hollow-hearted strain,
Ask for fair liberty's long reign ;
And yet pursue the accursed plan,
Binding in chains our fellow man ?
