ficers impair the reputation of the body of a which
they are members; and it is but just to expect
that every gentleman of honorable sentimr.nts will
sacrifice the gratification of his personal enmit)
to the consideration that the reputation of his as-
soci:.t.s will necessarily be involved in the oblo-

The prevalence of desertion las been an evil
of serious magnitude, and it does not appear to
be justified by a view ot the past condition of the
military establishment. All research in this field
for its causes has been unsatisfactory. The char-
acter of the military profession is honorable;
the soldier is as well provided with comforts as
.the citizen iii common life, and hit occupation is
neither more offensive nor more laborious.There
are restless, discontented spirits in every sphere
ol life, which no indulgence nor kindni--s can bind
to stability ; but these examples do not exist in
sufficient number to justify the range deseittion
has taken in the army. The evil must be refer-
red, in a degree, to an undue se ir'ity, or to the
absence of system in the conduct of officers to-
wards their men. The officer is the depositary
of the rights of the soldier. and the obligations of
his office, as well as the laws of honor and human-
ity, claim a faithful execution of the trust. When
the soldier ceases to regard the officer as his
protector, the-authority with which the laws in-
vest the latter loses its efficacy in his estimation,
The surest renaedy for the evil of desertion is
contained in a rigid and steady discipline. To be
salutary it must possess mb'.r ,hese qualitiei; but
no violation of law can be deemed essential to its
enforcement. Its effect upon the soldier becomes
impaired the moment he feels that the system
which governs him is fluctuating in its course, or
that it violates the principles upon which it is,
founded. The certainty r-f laws comn.lLttes their
principal effica' y, arnci, lhoever scveie restric-
tions may be, dliet are obeyed so long as they are
dispensed by the hand of justice, and not of op-
It should be the study of officers to cultivate
intimate relations with .so- ity, and to attach the
community'to the interests of the army, by ming-
ling, with circumspection and prudence in those
social channels wherein the sympathies of indivi-
duals naturally flow. The objects of military
service are of national concern, and it is but ra-
tional that there should be an intimacy between
the nation and the agents to which its external
defence is entrusted. The affections of the na-
tion constitute the only certain and permanent ba-
sis upon which the .military establishment can
build its reputation. Under a government whose
whole efficacy is derivative, it is apparent that
every subordinate institution must participate in
the general dependance upon the common foun-
tain of power. To the country, then, in its most
enlarged sense, the army must look for the re-
wards of its successes, and for support in the
hour of adversity ; and it is only by deeds of arms
in war, and devotion to duty in peace, that its ob-
ject can be attained.
The nation must be convinced that the army
is progressing in all useful improvements, and
must be made to feel that it is connected with its
safety and' honor. It is in vain that officers com-
plain' of the difficulty of this achievement. It is
called for by the highest duties enjoined by pa-
triotism, and it must be effected, as they value
their own 'reputation and the consciousness of
having performed their duty.

TO THE EDITORS.'
CIVILIZATION OF TIHE NORTIT A\MERICAN
IN D 1.N S.
When I said, in my communication of yes.
terday, that there %tere no barriers, iiatural or
otherwise, to the complete c iliizarin of the
North American Indian," I meant none that at-
tached to the Indian character. But there are
barriers' which lie in the way to this Work, and
which require to be removed before the reform-
ation can proceed with the celerity licI oiu ;liit
to mark its advances. And why should a work
of such vast importance be'left to force its way
amidst evils, not one of which ought to be per-
mitted to oppress or retard it, and when, too,
they are all within the power of the government,
If the work of'Indian civilization can, as it has,
overcome the opposition against which it las had
to contend, so as It lift itsclh into the public view,
and recommend itself' to the confidence and sym
pathy of our citizens to the extent' it has already
reached, what might not be expected to result
from the same system, unincumbered by the
weights which now hang upon it.
Thiisis the time to give to tis noble tinder
taking all the fair play which it merits, (and with.
out which even its failure c0uiltd not be censured,)
and all the strength, as well that which arises
from a complete defence of it% outwork as that
which ought to constitute its necessary supplies.
Yes, this is the time, for the Indians themselves"
are alive to the importance of the work; so much
so that one tribe (the Choctaw's) has given out of
their annuity, for fifteen years to come, the sum
of six thousand dollars annually, besides cattle,
&c. &c. to be appropriated to the use of the
mission which is in operation in their country.
Let this feeling, which is so practically set forth
by these people, be responded to by the govern-
ment, and there is n< thing which would so clear-
ly evince to the Indians the iiunanit. and good
will of the government, as that it should rid
them of their very worst enemies; and these are
by universal consent admitted to be the selfish
and avaricious of our country who harass and
wrong them at all the points out of which it is
possible to extract gain. These are the persons
on whom the Indians look with something like
instinctive dread, and they aremoie feared by
the missionaries than every other terror which
the fancy is capable of associating with the toresis.
Pecuniary advancement is placed by such per-
sons in advance of every other consideration;
and as to the reposq and honor of their country,
'or the quiet and welfare ',f the Indians, these
are considerations oh hut -ec-ondiry imp.rrt,:nce.

their value. Hence they were in the way of each
other. It was found out to be much easier t6o
oppress the Indians than to give up any part of

the coalition. It consists in the power which
the one Company has to exact o[ the Indians to
take one-third of the rqi.i tity of goods for the'

BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS.
P1O 'THE IIOSTON DAILY ADVEnTISER.,
The author of jVarrative of the Campaigns of the Bri-
tish army at Washington and JVew Orleans, gives a parti-
cular account of the movements of the fleet from the
Chesapeake to Jamaica, and thence to the neighborhood
of New Orleans, of the landing of the troops, and of the
several actions before the city. After describing the
unsuccesasful attack upon our lines from their batteries
en the first of January, he proceeds to give the follow-
ing account of the assault which was made on the 8th.
4 It was determined.to divide the army, to
Fend some across the river, who should seize the
enemy's guns and turn .them on themselves;
while the remainder should at the same time
make a general assault along the whole entrench-
ment. But before this plan could be put into exe-
cution, it would be necessary to cut a canal
across the entire neck of land, from the Bayou de
Catiline to the river, of sufficient ,'width and
depth to admit of boats being brought up from
the lake. Upon this arduous undertaking were
the troops immediately employed. Being divid-
ed into four companies they labored by turns,
day and night; one party relieving another after
a stated number of hours, in such order as that
the work should never be entirely deserted. The
fatigue undergone during the prosecution of this
attempt., no words can sufficiently describe; yet
it was pursued without repining, and at length,by
untemitted exertions, they succeeded in effect-
ing their purpose by the 6th of January."
[He proceeds to state, tha-t in the mean time maj. gen.
Lambert unexpectedly arrived with two full regiments,
miusiering 800 effc-tive men each-and that with the ad-
diiiobn of a body of sailors and marines from I lie fleet,

forceT ..'i s, ,'i..g' ir, at 23, and others at 30,000.-
lie suppo-Ls 25,000 to be about the probable number.]
The canal, as I have stated, being finished on
the 6th, it was resolved to lose no time in mak-
ing use of it. Boats were accordingly ordered
for the transportation of 1400,men; and Colonel
Thornton with the 85th regiment, the marines
and a party of sailors, were ordered to cross the
river. But a number of untoward 'accidents oc-
curred, to spoil a plan of operations as accurate-
ly laid down as any in the course of the war. The
soil through which the canal was dug being soft,
parts of the bank gave w ,y, and chaaking up tihe
channel, prevented the heaviest of the boats from
getting forward. These again blocked up the
passage, so that none of those which were behiinv
could proceed, and thus, instead of a flotilla tLr
the accommodation of 1400 men, only a nu,;ber
of oo, ts sufficient to contain 350 were enabled to
reach their destination. Even these did not ar-
rive at the time appointed. According to the
preconcerted plan, Colonel Thor tion's detach.
tnent was to cross the river i..ir.,ediately after
dark. They were to push forward so as to car-
ry all the batteries, and point the guns before day
light; -when on the throwing up of a rocket, they
were to commence fi:in, upon the enemi 's hn,,
which at the same moment was to be attacked by
the main body of our army.
I.) this n:anner was' one part of the force to
act, while the rest were thus appointed. Divid-
ing his tro,'ps into three columns, Sir Edward
directed that general Keane, at the head of the.
95th, the light companies of' the 21st, 4th, arAd
44th, together with the two black corps, should
make a demonstration, or sham attack upon the
right; that general Gibbs, with the 4th, 21st, 44th
and 93d, should force te enemy's left, while gen.
Lan.bert with the 7th, and 43d, remained in re,
herve, ready to act as circuos'.ances might re-
quire. But, in storming an entrenched position,
orni..ti,,: mnoie than bare courage is required.
Scaling ladders aniw fascines had, therefore, been
prepared, with which to fill up the ditch and
mount the wall; and stice to carry these vas a
service of danger, requiring a corps well worthy
of dependatace, the 441h was f,.r that purpose se-
lected, as a regimeL.t of sufficient numnerical
strength, and already accustomed to American
warlare. Thus were all things arranged on the
night of the 7th; for dhe 8th)was fixed upon as
the day decisive of the fate of New Orleans.
While the rest of the army, therefore, lay down
to sleep till they should be roused up to fight,
Colonel Thornton with the 85th, and a corps of
marines and seamen, amounting in all to 1400
men, moved down to the brink of the river. As
yet, however, no boats had arrived; hour after,
hour elapsed before they came; and v hen they
did come, the n-isfortunts which I have stated
above were discovered, for out I. all that had
been ordered up, only a few made their appear-
ance Still it was absolutely necessary that thi.s
part of the plan should be carried into execution.
Dismissing, therefore, the rest of his followed s,
the Colonel put himself at the head ol his own re
giment, about fifth) seamen, and as many marines,
and with this small force, consisting of no .orec
than 340 men, pushed off. But, unfortunately,
thie loss of time nothing could repair. Instead of
reaching the opposite bank, at least by midnight,
dawn was beginning to appear before theboats
quitted the canal, It was in vain that they roweo
on in perfect silence, with oars n filerd, gaining
the point of debarkation without being perceived.
It v as in vain th t they made guod their landing
and formed upon the beach, without opposition
or alarm; day had already broke, and the signal
rocket was see: in the air, while they were yet
four miles from tre batteries, which ought hours
ago to have been taken.
In the mean tinte, the main body armed and
moved forward some way in frontof the piquets.
There they stood waiting for d.y-hlght, and lis-
ter.ing with the greatest anxiety for the.. ft ing
which ought now to be heard on the opposite
bank. But this attention was exerted in vait,
and day dawned upon them long before they dt-
sired its appearance. Nor was Sir Edward
Packenham disappointed in this part 6f his plan
alone. Instead of perceiving every thing in rea-
diness for the assault, he saw his troops in battle
array, indeed, but not a ladder or fascine upon the
field. The 44th, which was appointed to.caury
them, had either nitsunderstood or neglectel thair
orders; and now headed the column of attack,
wihlout any means being provided for crossing
the enemy's ditch, or scaling his ram art.
The indignation of poor Packenham, on this
occasion.uay be i:!'aginedi,but cannot be describ-
ed. Galloping towards colonel Mullens, who
led the 44th, hie comnianded him'instantly to re-
turn with his regiment for the ladders, but the
opportunity of plantilig them was lost, and though
they were brought up, it was only to be scattered
over the field by the frightened bearers, for our
troop, were by this tint visible to the ene!,;y. A
dreadful fire was accordingly opened upon them,
and they were mowed down by hundreds, whilst when we were commanded to halt. The real---- ---- --

TO THE EDITORS.
Gentlemen: A few days ago I read in your
paper a very polite card addressed to me, from a
gentleman in Philadelphia, under the signature
of H, to which I request you to publish the fol-
lowing answer, and you % ill! ui,,
Your obedient servant,
JAMES LEADER CATHCART.
Sia : In the card which you did me the honor
to j:-lie.-, to me through the medium of the
PI-iladelp-ias Unioni, you ask, Do not the Flor
idas consist of sand and al i'.i il soil ?" and then
draw your conclusion, That the Floridas are
not calculated for the culture of the vine." Per-
mit me to return the compliment by another in-
terrogatory : In fifty-six or fifty-seven square
miles of territory, the extent of the Floridas, are
there no high lands, hummocks, or pine barrens,
or sandy banns of streams in a deep vegetable
loam, collected as alluvion or-otherwise ? If there
are not, then I must confess that l have made a
most injudicious selection ; for it is well known
that, in the southern parts of the United States,
where there is .n absence of silicious sand, in
most cases the grape vine is absent also, and
cannot be cultivated without much trouble and
expense ; and no doubt the company which you
mention (from 1ii nr.. ', )was unsuccessful in their
first attempt, from having settled on too rich and
damp a soil, Without sufficient shelter. But tra-
vellers inform us that there are many such sites
in Florida, .an.,iin-;., whom permit me to quote
Bartram, who states that the indigenous grape
vine grows there spontaneously and in great vi-
got, and some *c6i1h r authors recommend a soil
precisely such as you condemn'; and all authors
who have written upon the culture of the vine
agree upon a general principle, which they con--
:ii._r- hie.:, i..i.l.-i. e. that, to produce good
wine, the soil upon which the vine grows must be
No doubt dry pine hills, with a southern ex-
posure, will be found more c eigenial to the
growth of the vine, and will yield gi .ips far su-
perior to those produced on the rich and moist
bottoms cf large rivers, and that land now con-
demned to irremediable sterility, will hereafter
produce vines in. great perfection ; and, as a con-
siderable quantity of the soil in the 'loridas is .of
thie above description, it is not perceived why the
vines of Europe, A.i's, and Africa, may not be
propagated there to.as much advantage, or the
indigenous improved by i 1_ t ji'rtir as they can
in Georgia or South Carolina, more especially
as the soil and climate are, similar to the sites of
the best vineyards in Europe.
Bartram travelled through great part of the
Floridas.in 1774 and '75, and describes a site on
the river St. John's, where the live oak and other
trees grew to an immense size, as follows : It
is really astonishing to behold the grape vines in
this place. From their bulk and strength one
would imagine they were conbinec to pull ilor n
these mighty trees to the earth ; when, in fact,-
amongst other good purposes, they serve to up-
hold them. They are frequently nine, ten, and
twelve inches in diameter, and twine round the
trunks of the trees, climb to their very tops, and
then spread along their limbs, from tree to tree,
through the forest. : Thie fruil is but small, and
It is precisely the same with the grape frorn
which the best .wines are made; the Madeira
grape is unpalatable, and no doubt those grapes
may be niuch improved by proper cultivation.
The samam. author states, that, considerably to
the north of the Alabama river, c he crossed
extensive open plains, the soil gravelly, produ-
cing a few trees, and shrubs or uindergrowth,
which were entangled with grape vines (vitis
campestris) ofa peculiar species : the bunches
(racemes) of fruit were very large, as were the
,grapes that composed them, though yet green
and not fully grown ; but when ripe they are of
various colors, and their juice sweet and rich.
The Indians gather great quantities of them,
which they prepare for keeping by first sweating
the .. on hurdles over a gentle fire, and afterwards
drying them on their bunches in the sun and air,
and store them up for li ii'-.mt These grape
vines do not climb into high. trees, butcreep along
from one low shrub to another, extending their
branches to a great distance horizontally round
about; and it is very pleasing to behold the clus-
ters pendant frcm the vines, almost touching the
earth-indeed, some of them lie ont the ground. "
It is probable that the above site is now inclu-
ded in the state of A!abamna ; but, from the best
iniforination which I was able to obtain when
there, from tram'-ell'ers wh'o had passed through
the Floridas, there are -many extensive sites in
that newly acquired territory, which correspond
with the above in every particular as to climate,
soil, exposure, and natural productions. The
plain of Bordeaux is composed of an alluvion,
foriied of sand adruixed with thile mud of the sea ;
when thcer is not a clayey base which retains too
much moisture, the wine is delicious.
That part of ( i. q. ., so renowned for its
vineyards, is one of tlhe nost sterile parts of
France ; it presents an unbroken plain, where
you meet almost every where fragments of chalk
or red sand stone, with little earth and some fos-
sil shells; and Chaptal remarks, that the fine
Hermitage wines are produced in a granite soil,
as the most delicious wines of Sicily are produ-
ced on the declivities o-f Mount Etna, and in its
vicinity, where the soil is mixed with a large
quantity of the lava, sand, and ashes,thrown up by
In 'iripiali, in Barbary, the vine is cultivated in
a soil nearly all sand ; it is only mixed with such
vegetable mould as is procured by collecting tihe
refuse of their gardens and kitchens, and conse-
quently is in very small quantities ; yet no bet-
ter grapes are produced in any part of the world.
In the Island of Madeira the vine is cultivated
in th e greatest perfection on the sides of hills on
the south mride of thie Inland, which is a bed of
rt.ck.; their vineyards are composed of a ferru-
gious colored concrete, having the appearance
of volcanic om'igin, which is lound in large masses
on the surface, and when broken into small pie
ces, is soon decomposed by the ac'iun of the sun
and atuosphei e, and w hen mixed rith such ve-
getable matter as is prmioc-ittablm, becomes very
fertile and produces time grape ofwhich tie best
wines- are made-supcrlluis moisture, which
would otherwise destroy the vine,- percolating ea-
sily through it in the rainy or extraordinary wet
On ithe north side of the Island the quality oi
the vine is thie same, for cuttings transplanted
fon the o'th to 'ihe south: produce the same
grape in perfection, while those transplanted firn'i
the south to the north invariably degenerate. This
is attributable to too great moisture, and want of
sufficient shelter from the north wind ; lor, in
some spots which enjoy either a natural or arti-
ficial shelter, the wine is much better, and ap-
proaches nearer to what is called London Parti-
From these premises I therefore conclude, that
the ,.r.ape vine mayy b-. cultivated in the Floridas
to great alvaritage, the position, exposure, and
description of soil,-corresponding almost exactly
with the places where, according to the best
French authors, the finest vineyards ia. Europe

The following description of a part of Florida in the vi-
cinity of Fort Gadsden il ie Ifound: iineresting. It
is contained in a letter from a friend, to the Editor,
t" Fort Gadsden, pril 27, 1821.
My personal obsc rvaion of this country has
been hitherto c. nfined to the vicinity of this
place, which is, at present, a perfect wil-
derness. There are no white int.abitants, except
a few Indian traders,. nearer than the Georgia
line, seventy miles distant, itn.d all our comnuni-
cations with the world lead through deep and
extensive swamps, except tht: by the Gulf.--
The messengerho ii s. .',(i t, cui-ey v l t.r, s,
&c. between'this place andi Fort Scot,' is obli ',d
to swim across creeks and lagoons onil his way.
The route to Pe:.sacola. oni the W -t, is v ry cir-
cuitous and mute thr ni r,'. ihnitiidr. d n ii.s I n..n .
We'have had no in'ercoirse w' .th it 'I pl sca -since
I came here, a,.d but little nith the Fert of St.
Marks, which lies 70 or 80 miles to the E.&t, and
is divided from us by an almost entire ,r'ct o.
swamp, intersected by laitge rivers. The gefie-'
ral face of the country, for s!xty miles from the
coast, is made op -.f .:i' i covered with heavy
timber, and gent'iral.y overflowed, and low pine
lands'which sometimes rise into bluffs 6 or 10 feet
above the level of the water. Fort Gadsden- is
orr one of these latter, and Pensacola i aln either,
very extensive and .high, which, lying open to
the sea, accounts for the healthiness of that place.
Immediately oil the siloi 0 of the Gulf, all a-
long, as faras I have observed it, the storms have
piled up the sand in idgt-e, parallel wiih the
shore, andin some places to the height of twenty
or thirty fLt.L' Thec rid. s g'":n::rally extend a
half a, mile or more Iron the Girlf, lying parallel
to each other and equidistant, in the same form
as a succession of heavy, seas. The river Apa-
lachicola is about 150 niiei long. Its banks are
overflow.ed,neajly all the way in s.-,me places tor
several miles back. This overflowed part is co-
vered with a very thick growth of almost every
kind of tree common at the north, as well as a
great variety pecu'iar to the South, particularly
cypress, from which the swamps cerive the name-
of cypress swamps. All these trees grow re-
markably large and bear in great abundance a
singular kind of mons, which is thought to sub-
sist entirely upon the miasmata in the aii'. It
has no ro.tis, rnbr any radical connection with the
tree, but rldy hang over the limbs in the same
manner as if it had been placee! there by the
hand. It has a grey colour, and in the winter,
when theJleaves have fallen, it gives the sunken
forest a most dismal appearance. A trayeller
from the North wr.iild Silp-'se that .the trees
were all dead, and that the whole country wus
gradually sinking into one satwry grave. But
the spring changed the pil aspect Ceie'-ly. "The
hoary moss is now concealed by a most luxu-
riant foliage, which, front the great variety of
trees, presents almost every shade of green, and
furnishes a delicious feast to the eye. The whole
bank of the river is lined with a rich barrier form-
ed of canes and bushes interwoven and matted
with all sorts of vines, bearing a great variety of
flowers, and the scene is -now beginning to be
still more enriched by the blooming of the mag-
nolia, which is indeed the king (or at least presi-
dent) of all flowers. This tree (of which you have
seen descriptions enough) occupies a very con-
siderable share of the forest, and is always con-
spicuous for the great size and deep green colour
of its leaves, but when in bloom its beauty is be-
yond comparison with any thing of the tree kind.
It is then covered with milk white blossoms, the
smallest of which exceeds in circumference the
crown of my hat, (a comparison intre true than
poetical.) These emit.a sweet odour which fills
the whole atmospihere.- But all this clysian scene
is but a gilded sepulchre. Within is contained
all manner of deadly vapours, and the abodes of
poisonous insects and huge snakes."

Arrangements have been n.ade, by the differ.
ent departments of our government, i, hich seem-
ed to indicate an ,c.pe.itati., thai possession of
the Floridas would be yielde.l to the United
States by the Spanish autiliri'ies, a' soon as our
officers were ready to receive it. We know, for
instance, that Governor .JalIkni. and other Uni-
ted S:ates' officers, are on the spit. Recent in-
formation, however, induces us to doubt whether
the Spanish authorities are so ready to give up
the reins of government there, however loosely
they lie in their hands. They have a right to re-
tain the possession for six months firon the rati-
fication; but in good faith they ought not to do it.
Such a delay could be of no advantage to the
Spanish nation, whilst it might be seriously
prejudicial to the United Stites, by affording
an opportunity to afew desplicble creatures to

The Artigan brig L'Esperance, of 18 guns
and 120 men, went into Cape Haytien 28th of
April in distress, short of provisions and water.
On the following day the pilot landed, and was
received with the greatest cordiality. Salutes
were immediately interchaiged, and the brig
commenced refitting. On the 3d of May the
bhri i a, taken possession of by the Haytien go-
verni;ent, officers and crew thrown into prison,
and Haytien colors substituted instead of Arti-
gan., Same day, a ui.ill Er-gli,: schooner, laden
with dry goods, purp.Ji tling to be from Caicos
Islands, arrived, w ithi l pa-i ngt.r on board, Capt.
.AVorthrop. The schooner was seized, captain
and crew thrown into prison, and the passenger
put under arrest. Following day, the brig was
manned, and, in company with two Haytien man:
of war schooners, sailed in pursuit of a large
Spanish ship, said to be at Tertugas Island.
Next day, they returned with a large Spanish
ship of about 450 tons, mounting 18 guns, with
a crew of 40 men, prize to the above named
brig. On examination, the sailors deposed they
entered at St.Barts, and had been cruising some
time off the Havana, where they captured no-
thing; finally proceeded off Vera Cruz, where
they captured the above ship and.two brigs; took
all the valuable part of the cargoes of the brigs,
and put it on board the ship, and gave the brigs
up to the prisoners ; that they never had robbed
or abused any flag. The ship and cargo was va-
lued at from 150 to 200,000 dollars. May 9ti.
the crew were liberated, the officers still in prison.

AT IACK ON .BALTI IORE..
MRiOM THE BOSTON DAILY ADVERTISEI ,
The author of the Na.-ative of the 2C. :paigns of the
B ti'Si army, at Waishin-t..n and.New Orleans, after an
a- : lit of the retreat fromn ,V i. j,T'.n, proceeds to
gi a' account of tile atI'ck upon Baltimore. The fleet
remina,.edin the Patuxent until September 6. It then
---o aiunder w igh. and Sailed a short distance down the
ba1y-tll .a.'e to anchor. A signal was made for all the
sh ips to-seijid in a return oft toe uiu.nbir of seamen
whom, in addition to the marines, they could land with
small arms. T;.e silps' crews were all mastered, and it
was found that a thousand men would be spared, wh.cli,
no:.withstandingthie los- at ishJ-niuaji 4i. would enable
the commander to bring into lu, Ltil.. 4,000 fighting
men On the next day they entered the Potomac, and
on the two following days they proceeded up that river.
On the 9th, after steering fora few hours in the direc-
tion of Alexandria, they put anout suddenly, ran don
the bay under a fresh breeze, and steered for the Pa.
On the 11th they came in sight of the projecting head-
land where it was designed to disembark the troops, dis.
taln fourteen or fifteen miles from Baltimore. Three
da. s' provisions Were cooked as before, and given to the
men, and twenty rounds ofammnitiun were added to the
sixty usually given to each soldier. It was dark when
they reached the anchorage, and every man slept in his
clothes to be prepared to start at a moment's warning.
Speaking of the excitement of preparation, the author
says, no man, of the smallest reflection, can look for-
ward to the chance of death without experiencingsensa-
tions very different from those which he experiences
under any other circumstances W--when' the battle has
fairly begun, I may say with truth that. the feelings of
those engaged are delightful, because they are, in fact,
so many gamblers playing for the highest stake that
could be offered. But the stir and noise of equipping,
and then the calmness and stillness of expectation-these
are the things which force a man to think. On the other
hand, the warlike appearance of every thing about you,
the careless faces and rude jokes of the private soldiers,
and something within yourself which I can compare to no-
tiing more than the mirth which cri,.,inals are said some-
times to experience and to express previous to their ex-
ecution ; al. these combine to give you a degree of false
hilarity, I had almost said painful, from its very excess. It
is an agitation of the nerves, such as we may suppose
madmen feel ; which you are inclined to wish removed,
though you are unwilling to admit that it is disagree-
At three o'clock in the morning the troops began to
land, without opposition, and leisurely formed in an open
field. At 7, they were all disembarked and in order for
marching. Tihe artillery consisted of six field pieces and
two howitzers, all draI n by horses. The column advanle.
ed for about an hour,when they came to ground that had
been occupied by American troops, and was deserted.
From the aspect of the ground, they concluded they
should soon meet with opposition, and the troops were
hal, -d, that the rear might come up, and the men be fresh
fur action. I 1
*r Having rested for the space of an hour, %%c
again moved forward, but had not piaoc.ede,'
ab, ve a mil: when a sharp fire of musquetry was
herd in front, aid shortly afterwards a mounted
officer came galloping to the rear, who desired
us to quicken our pace, for the advanced guard
was engaged. At this intelligence the ranks
were closed, and the troops advanced at a quick
rate and in profound silence. The firing still
continued, though from its running and irregular
sound, it promised little else than a skirmish;
but whether it was kept up by detached parties
alone, or by the outposts of a regular army, we
could not tell; because, from the quantity of
wood with: which the country abounds, and the
total absence of all hills or eminences, it was im-
possible to discern what was going on at the dis-
tance of half a mile from where we stood.
*- We were now drawing near the scene of ac-
tion,. when another officer came at full speed to-
wards us, with horror and dismay in his counten-
ance, and (llitoi aloud for a surgeon. Every
man felt within himself that ail was not right,
tlo'uigh none was,willing to believe the whispers
of1 s own terror. But what at first we would not
guess at, because we dreaded it so much, was
scon realized-.for the aid-de-camp had scarcely
passed when the general's horse, without his ri
Ide, and with the sad-le and housings stained
wilh blood, came plunging onwards. Nor was
n",'h time given for fearful surmise as to the
extent of our misfortune.
In a few moments we reached the ground
where the skirmishing had taken place, and be-
held poor Ross laid by the side of the road, under
a canopy of blankets, and apparently in the ago-
nies of death. As soon as the firing began, heI
had ridden to the front, that he might ascertain
from whence it originated, and, mingling with the
skirmishers, was shot in the side by a rifleman.
The wound was mortal: he fell into the arms of
his aid-de-suamp, and lived only long enough to
name his wife, and to commend his family to the
protection of his country. He was borne towards
the fleet, but expired before his bearers could
reech the boats.
It is impossible to conceive the effect which
this melancholy, spectacle produced throughout
the army. By the courteousness and condescen-
sion of his manners, General Ross had secured
the absolute love of all who served under him,
from the highest to the lowest; and his success
on a former occasion,.as well as his judicious ar-
rangements on the present, had inspired every one
with the most perfect confidence in his abilities.
His very error, if error it may be called in so
young a leader--I mean that diffidence in himself
which had occasioned some loss of time on the
march to Washington---appeared now to have left
him. His movements were at once rapid and
cautious ; nay, his very countenance indicated a

By the fall of our gallant leader, the com-
mand now devolved upon Col. Brook, of the 44th
regiment, an officer of decided personal courage,
but perhaps better calculated to lead a battalion
than to guide an army. Being informed ot his
unexpected and undesired elevation, he came to
the front, and we continued to move on, sorrow-
ful indeed, but not dejected. The skirmishing
had now ceased, for the American riflemen were
now driven in; and in a few minutes we found
ourselves opposite to a considerable force, drawn

that the corps now opposed to us amounted to six
or seven thousand men. They covered a neck
of land very much resembling that which we had
passed, having both flanks defended by little in-

wooded, and in front of their line was a range of
high polings5 similar to those which intersected
the field ot Bladensburg. About the centre, tho'
some way advanced, was a farm house with its
out-buildings and stack-yard, and near to the
right ran the main road. Their artillery, which
could not greatly exceed our own, either in weight
of metal or number of guns, was scattered along

." The bayonet is a weapon peculiarly British;
at least, it is a weapon, which, in the hands of a
British soldier, is irresistible. Though they
maintained themselves with great determination,
and stood to receivee our fire till scarcely twenty
,yards divided us, the Americans would not ha-
zard a charge. On our left, indeed, where the
21st advanced in column, it was not without
much difficulty and a severe loss, that any attempt
to charge could be made; for in that quarter
seemed to be the flower of the enemy's infantry,
as well as the main body of their artillery; to-
wards the right, however, the clay was quickly
won. The only thing to be regretted, it:deed,
was that the attack had not been for some time
longer deferred; because the Amermicans were
broken and fled, just as the 4th regiment began
to show itself upon the brink of the water which
covered their flank; and before a shallow part
could be discovered, and the troops were enabled
to pass, they had time to' escape."
i As soon as their left give way, the whole A-
merican army fell into confusion; notr do I recol-
lect on any occasion to have witnessed a more
complete route., Infantry, cavalry, and artillery
were huddled together,, without the smallest re-
gard to order or regularity. The sole subject of
anxiety seemed to be which should escape from
the field of battle; insomuch, that numbers were
actually trodden down, by their countrymen in the
hurry of their flight. Yet, in spite of the short
duration of the action, which lasted little more
than two hours ufrom its first commencement, th'.
enemy's loss was severe.

Cotton has fallen as well as tobacco. The pros-
pects of a European war exhilirated us-for a day
or two, but they have vanished, and wheat has
fallen again. How painful to rely upon the ca-
shalties and caprices of other nations., If we

loans 150,000,000 of dollars per annum, during
the war, and yet flourished in a surprising man-
ner. Again I entreat of my brother farmers to
form societies to study and to impart their selti.-
