D)iPAIXT3tlENT OF v WAi,
December 26thl 1817.
Sir: Your letters of Noxember the 26th, and of the
2d and 3d inst.wt-. .'.. i i.. .h :hn,i orn!ig's mail. The
fate of the detachment under Lieut. Scott, is much to be
regretted ; but, under all the circumstances, no blame
can attach to yourself, or the officers immediately con-
cerned. VWhen the order of' the 1l2th November was
given, directing you to repair to Amelia Island, it was
hoped that the Seminoles would h.,,. I.., b.... 'i 1,.
their reason, without an actual use i I I.-...., 1.- i .. '. '
hostility would not assume so serious an aspect. It is
now a subject of much regret, that the service in that
quarter has been deprived of your well known skill and
vigilance.
iBefore this "il. 1 f, .. 1. you, it is hoped that the views of
the.President, in relation to time settlement on Amelia Is-
land, will have been effec:ed. Should that be the case,
it is his wish that ytou should immediately repair to Fort
Scott, and resume the command, till General Jacksoa's ar-
rival, to whom orders have this day been sent to com-
mnand there ; or, if you shotdd timink the force under
your command sufficient, and other circumstances will

An extract of a letter to Brevet Major General Edmundn
P. Gaines, daled 1Departumenat o' War, Januar'y 16tli,
1 818i."
The honor of the United States requires that the war
with the Seminoles should be terminated speedily, and
with exemplary punishment for hostilities so unprovoked.
Orders were issued soon after my arrival here, in. .,
the war to be carried on within the limits of Florid;,,
shouldit be necessary to its speedy and eilectual termin-
ation. The orders, I presume, have been received.
As soon as it w.as kiown that you had repaired to Ame-
lia Island, in obedience to orders, and it being' uncertain
how long you might be detained there, the.state i ..I,... ,
at Fort Scott made it necessary to order General Jackson
to take command there, From his known prolnptitude,
.i, presumable that his arrival may be soon expected;
and, in the mean time, full confidence is placed in your
well established military talents. I hope the junction of
the militia will trihl. ,.... to carry on offensive opera-
tions, and to res r,,nu li-. enemy from depredations on
the frontier.

following words:
Resolved, That the committee on military affairs be dis.
charged from the flirther consideration of so much of the
President's message as relates to the trial of Arbuthnot and
Ambrister, and. tie conduct of the war with the Seminuole
lndians ; and that the same be referred to the committee
of foreign relations, with instmuctions to inquire whether,
in said trials, the constitution and laws of the Uniites
States, or the law of nations; have been violated.
Mr. POINDEXTER moved to postpone the fur-
ther consideration of the resolution until Mon-
day; i,_le'jim ,, as a reason for the motion, that
the documents were not in possession of the
members, not being yet printed for the use of the
house : the publication of them in a newspaper
was not a proper ground for-the house to act on.

HOUSE OF REPUISENTATIVES.








mindiffercnt resjictitg it. But since thiueu' mcd-'
ment by way of iri.atruction to the committee, anu
emphasis had benit given to the m-otion, tand a
bearing by inimpl'i'tion, which made it necessary
to act on it cautiously, and with a full untder-
standing of the subject. HIe was not prepared
to pronounce an opinion, even by way of specific
instruction to aconmmnittce,until the documents on
which that opinion must be founded were official-
ly in his possessisson. If however, the subject
was not postponed, he should move additional in-
structions, rendered necessary by the amendment.
Mr. CoaB said, as an inducement to the house
not to postpone the consideration of.the resol'te,
that, on '.i .lni, further into the subject, he
had discovered that the amendment agreed to ont
his suggestion did not go far' enough, and that
further amendment had become necessary.
With this view he had pre'Tared some other a-
mendments, which he would move if the subject
was now taken up. Mr. C. added, that he saw
1no reason foi waiting for documents : the pro-
posed inquiry related to subjects referred to in
the Presidenit's meseage--and it was the usual
and common course to refer the various subjects
of the message to committees, before the docu-
ments accompanying it wereprinted.
Mr. Fs.oYfi moved to postpone the- resolution
indefinitely, under the impression that the enqui-
ry ieferred t'o riu it'was already before the proper.
colnhtittccs. If the constitution or law of nations
;iad been violated by any of the officers of the go-
verntnf:Utt, as had been suggested, he thought that
-e.vald be a proper subject to be referred to a
commitUee "..1 i raised to investigate it.
Mr. HIoescis said, that the committee of for-
eign rehittionis had thought thle natter, properly
Within tihe paic of tiheir dilty ; blUt, having seen
that it was .. i; referred to another cominit-
tee, he had thought it proper to endeavor to ob-
tain the sense of the House whether the subject
ought to be examined by the committee of foi'-
eign relations or not. The truth is, said Mlr.
Holmes, we have had a war without the limits of
the United Staces, which has been carried oi
somewhat within the territories of a nation at
peacc with us. The conduct of the comrnandin-.
general was a subji.t into which it might be pro-
per for the House to examine : so far as r.. -
ed his military conduct, th at part of the subject be-
longed to the:. l;'. .! .-committee. So as to the Se-
minole wart: whatever reg-arded that war, with
reference to it; military conduct, and to the rela-
tions of the officer and the army to the country,
belonged to the military committee. But, so fitar
as related to the cases of Arbuthnot and Ambris..
ter, these men were foreigners; they were said
to have claimed to be British subjects, and it was
thought by some that they 9wed a temporary al-
lcgiance to Spain : in this c ,' the invest!-
gation appeared to belong to the foreign relation
committee, as having a direct connection with
their duties. The committee only wished that the
House should-decide whether they were or were
not to examine the subject. If the 'House nega-
tived the resolve, the committee of foreign rela-
tions would consider it as the wish of the House-
that they should not examine the subject.
Mr. Su riass spoke in favor of postponement:
the motion, and amendment, he thought were,
founded on documents which had indeed appear-
ed in the newspapers, but were not in possessions
of the house; ,which thany gentlemen might not
even have seen and could not be prepared to act
upon. Before he gave a vote for a resolve con-
'atining i.'. ; .. ..t ;r. : against an officer
of very high character, he wished to ...m -i.,: the
.grounds of the proceeding.
,Mr. D-.scass w'as in favor of postponement, as
the subject was of a complicated character, and
ought to be distributed perhaps among several
connmittees. Whatever related to alleged vio-

hatiosIs of the constitution, or of the laws of war,,
it appeared to himn, belonged properly to the ju-
diciar'y comnllttee.
Mr. CoisB restated his intention, if permitted,
to propose to divide the subject among different
committees.
Mr. RHuEA said that the question presented it-
self now in a shape involving considerations of
far more importance than at first view it seemed
to do. As he wished to know the extent of the
views and objects of the gentleman from Georgia
on the subject, he hoped the gentleman who mo--
red the postponement would widtdraw the mo-
-ion, to give Mr. Cobb an opportunity of offering
his amctndnments.
M1r. POINDE'TER' declined withdrawing his
motion, and repeated his reasons for having made
it. As it now stood, the very enquiry contained
in the resolve implied censure on the commander
of the southern division of the army, and requir-
ed a full investigation before it was decided on.
Mr. IHoLfis, finding the Debate obliquely en-
teringinto the merits of the Seminole War, &c.
proposed to withdraw the original proposition lhe
offered yesterday.
This, however, he could not effect, because
the proposition had been amended, and therefore
could not be withdrawn.
Mr. 'VALKER said thatthe resolution, as amend-
ed, involved a delicate question. If it did not
implicate the correctness of .the Commanding
General in the Seminole Wr, it certainly did in-
sinuate that his conduct had been improper. As
to what had taken place on the Spanish territory,
Mr. .thought this House litd no right to en-
quire into it, unless "representations were made
through the proper authority oh the subject by
Spain. It would be time enough for Congress to
act on that question, when it was properly pre-
sented to them. What, he asked, would be the
feelings of General Jackson and his brave offi-
cers and fellow soldiers, on hearing of the ques-
tion being agitated here ? He never had believ-
ed but their conduct had been correct, and ac-
cording both to law and constitution; and that
they had been the salvation of the frontier of the
country which the honorable gentleman from
Georgia particularly represented. He believed
that, like all good men, the more their conduct
was investigated, the more it would be approved
--that the more they were tried, the brighter
they would shine.
Mr. l.ALDWItX said, he thought it advisable, as
the proposition had been the subject of so much
difference of opinion, and was likely to promote
unseasonable debate, that -the motion for indefi-
nite postponement should prevail. .
Mr. Joansox of Ky. said, if the motion for


postponement did not prevail, he proposed to
move such a reference to the several committees
as woulhbe satisfactory to all. He particularly
wished, siice so much had already been said ont
the. subject, that the motion should not be post-
poned, but an opportunity might be given to the
proper committeess to investigate it.

The following sheets, having been written in consider.
able haste, are submitted merely as hints to those who
have more leisure and better opportunities of examining
ani explaiitog thle important subject. They are the
suggestions of an anxious mind, alarmed at the present
portentous state of the monied medium of the United
states, and are coiunitted to the press, in the humble
hope that they mn'ay, in a small degree, contribute to call
the serious attention, of those intrusted with the conduct
of the national concerns, to a most essential part of the
national economy The writer has been led to the pre-
sent view merely by a desire to promote the permanent
interest and welfare of his country, and this motive will
be regarded, it is hoped, as a sutlicient atonement for
any errors which may be found in thale hasty sketches.
