.The Capture of Alexandria.
In relation to the conduct of the corpora-
tion of Alexandria. and its capture by the en.
emy in his recent enterprise, the committee
have been furnished with various documents
and information, and to which the committee
refer: but in justice to the town and to the
public, brief retrospect may not be deemed
improper, as connecting certain events with
thesurrende'r of the town on the 29th of Au-
gust. Oct. 1812, a volunteer company was
raised in Alexandria, amounting to about 70,
including officers, clothed by voluntary aid
and donation trom the citizens of Alexandria-
intended for the lines, but stationed at Fort
Washington remained in garrison till De-
charged. March, 1813, Capt. Marstellar's
Company of Artillery stationed at Ft. Wash-
ingtoma& ijtards of three months. 21st of
March, Is" corpo-ation by committee call-
ed son there Secretary of War for arms, &c.
for the defence of Alexandria, 8th of Ma y,
corporation, by committee, waited upon the
President to apprise him of the defenceless
state of the town; President acknowledged
that attention was due to the representations
of re-pectable men, and the proper attention
should be given, and at the ame time appris-
ed the committee of the impossibility, in the
nature of things, to give complete protection
to every assailablepoint of the country. 11th
of May, committee of vigilance appointed to
co-opeiate with the committee of George-
town and the City of Washington: a depu-
tation from the three committees waited upon
Gen. Armstrong, and represented the neces-
sity of additional fortifications at Ft. Wash-
ingto: a: Col. Wadsworth was ordered to at-
tend the committee, examine and report up-
on their suggestions. The examination was
made, and Col. Wadsworth reported that
tike battery at Fort. Washington was in such
a state, and it so effectually commanded the
channel of the Potomac, that it was not to be
apprehended that the enemy would attempt
to pass it while its present defenses remain
entire. Its elevated situation should prevent
died of a cannonading from ships ; that in
case of designs against the District of Colum-
bia, an assault by land was most probable; to
guard against this.some inconsiderable work
on the land was recommended; an addition-
al fort in the same neighborhood was consid-
ered unnecessary. On the 5th and 13th of
August, 1814, the corporation loaned to the
U. States 353000 dollars, upon condition that
it should ie expended south of Alexunpdria.-
After the defeat of Gen. Winder at Bladens-
burg, the corporation by committee waited up-
on the British commander at this cityto know
what treatment was to be expected provided
Alexandria.should fall into his hands. Adm'l
Cockburn assured the deputation that private
properfty-wuld be respected; that probably
some fresh provisions and flour might be
wfanteti, but they should 1e pid for. With-
out firing a gun, on the 27th, Fort Washing-
ton was blown up and abandoned by the
commanding officer, Capt. Dysori, who has
been dismissed from the service of the Unithd
States by a sentence of a court martial, in
consequence of it.
On the 28th, after the enemy's sqtuadron
passed the Fort,the corporation by deputation
proceeded to the ship commanded by captain
Gordoh, and requested to know his intentions
in regard to Alexandria: which he proposed
to communicate when heshould come opposite
the town,but promised thatthe persons, houses
and furniture of the citizens should be unmo-
lested if he met with no opposition. Next day,
the 29th, the British squadron was drawn up
in line of battle so as to command the whole
town. Therewere2frigates,the Seahorse, 38
guns, and Euryalus, 36 guns, 2 rocket ships
of 18 guns each, 2 bomb ships of 8 guns each,
and a schr. of 2guns arranged along the town.
The committee will not attempt to condense
the correspondence and terms of surrender,
but refer toit as a part of the report. Onehour
was allowed the corporation to decide. It was
stated to the British officer that the common
council had no power to.compel the return of
merchandise carried to the country, nor to
compel the citizens to aid in raising the sunken.
vessels: these two points were yielded by the
enemy. The enemy was requested to explain
what was included in the term merchandise
which was to be taken, and in answer it was
stated that i; would embrace such as was in-
tended for exportation, such as tobacco, cot-
tonrt, flour, bale goods, &c, The plunder of
the enemy was indiscriminate and not confin-
ed to any particular class of. individuals, and
included alike non-residents and inhabitants.
The plunder ofthe tenemy was confined prin-
cipally to flour, cotton and tobacco.
Estimate of the loss: 3 ships,3 brigs, several
bay and river craft,some vessels burnt. 16,000
barrels flour taken, 1,000 hogsheads of tobac-
co, 160 bales of cotton, 5,000 dollars worth of
wines, sugar, &e. In relation to a letter writ-
ten by Ad. Codrington to captain Gordon, the
committee will refer to the entireletter of Gen.
John Mason, who gives a satisfactory history
of this transaction: and to complete this part
of the subject, reference is had to the state-
ment of Gen. Hungerford, giving the move-
ments of his troops, and explains the inter-
views he had with the deputation from Alex-
andria, on his march to the city of Washing-
In the enquiry into- the causes of the suc-
vess of the enemy in his recent enterprises
against this metropolis, and the neighboring
town ,f Alexandria, &c. the committee con-
sulted a mode of investigation least embar-
rassing to themselves and to others. They
determined that as it was indispensable to
resort to some of the parties for information,
notderivablefiom other sources, it would be
equally their duty to hear as far as practica-
ble, those who were deeply concerned as to
character and reputation, from the agency
they had in this unfortunate transaction, with
a determination that in the event of any con-
tradictions in material circumstances, to re-
sort to impartial sources for explanation or
correction. In the mean time the commit-
tee called upon those who may be consider-'
ed as impartial observers for statements,
that a just comparison might be made of dif-
ferent allegations and representations. If,
therefore, the committee have failed to call
upon persons in possession of additional facts
and views not submitted, it has not been
through a want of inclination to receive all
that could be important, but from a want of
a knowledge of such persons ait'd such facts.
It was a question with the committee at its
earliest meeting, whether personal examina-
tions before the committee should be adop-
ted, or whether resort should be had, in the
first instance, to call for written communica-
tions or td6views and interrogatories submit
el by the committee, and best calculated to
extract every important fact. Several con-
siderations induced the adoption of the latter
It gave the committee command of part of
their time to attend to other public duties,
equally imperious and obligatory. It incur-
red no expense to government or individuals,
who were not interrupted in either their pri-
vate concerns or public duties. The commit-
tee know the anxiety of the house to have
this enquiry closed as soon as possible, and
which, by a different course, would have ta-
ken up the whole of the session, and encum-
bered with more useless and irrelevant mat-
ter and views than will be found in the com-
munications. The committee feel therefore
confident, that the house will be satisfied with
the manner in which the subject has been
developed! and to correct any possible error,
and to receive any important fact or addition-
almatter, although it is not very probable that
much can remain, the committee will ask
leave to report with a reservation of a right
to make any ether communication that may
be found necessary to an impartial examina-
tion of this subject.
In addition to the report of the committee,
in order to give a more satisfactory view
and detail upon the main subjects of inqui-
ry, and a variety of incidental matter
which has arisen from the investigation,
the following communications are referred
to as an appendix:
1. In relation to the measures adopted by

U. STATES CONGRESS.
13TH CONGREsS 3D SESSION.
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
MONDAY, DEC. 12.
Mr. Taylor of N. Y. presented the
petition of sundry merchants and other
citizens of New- York, praying for the
establishment of general bankrupt law;
which was read.
Mr. T. said he had desired the read-
ing this memorial, for the purpose of
calling the attention of the house more
.particularly to a subject of (the utmost
importance. Among the signatures to
tliat petition were the names of persons'
who had contributed millions to the rev-
enue, and of others who had, within a
short time, bestowed thousands of dol-
lars on charitable institutions-men
than whom there were none more
respectable in the nation. They look
to Congress alone for relief from the
difficulties into which they have been
plunged by the recent embarrassments
of commerce; by whom alone they can
be relieved, if the recent decision in the
Circuit Court of Pennsylvania be con-
firmed, &e. He therefore moved that
the Memorial be referred to the commit-
tee on the Judiciary.-Agreed to.
'Mr. Eppes of Virg. from the commit-
tee of Ways and Means, reported a bill

laying a duty ou distilled spirits, made a
report thereon. Several of the amend-

The question was then stated on a-
greeing to' that amendment of the Sen-
ate, which proposes to strike out the
section allowing distillers to sell any
quantity not less than.a gallon of the li-
quor they distil.
[Ep- The section thus proposed to be
struck out of the bill was originally in-
serted, in the house, at the suggestion of
Mr. Gholson of Va. who, with others,
contended that the laiw, as it now stood,
had a most inconvenient and even op-
pressive operation on the people in the
particular part of the country in whidh
he resided, many of whom did not distil
to the quantity which they are by law al-
lowed to dispose of-and who were now
precluded from selling enough of the li-
quor they distil to enable them to pay the
tax on it.]
The proposition to strike out this sec-
tion was opposed by Mr. Gholson and
Mr. Eppes, Mr. M'Kee ofKy. Mr. Ma-
con of N. C. Mr. Rhea, of Ten. Mr.
Pickens of N. C. and Mr. Ingham of Pa.

All the amendments (this one except-
ed) were agreed to, and the bill return-
ed to the senate.
Mr. Pearson of N. C. from the select
committee to whom was referred the
letter of Patrick Magruder respecting
the destruction of the library and pa-
pers belonging to the office of the Clerk
of the House of Representatives, made a
report thereon, exhibiting a detailed
view of the ciraumstauces attending the
loss of the library, which the committee
conceive might have been preserved in
. whole or in part, and the vouchers for
the contingent expenditures of the house
of representatives; and concluding with
a resolution that he be credited with a
a certain sum ascertained to have been
expended by himn between the 14th Jan..
1814, and the day on which the capitol
was destroyed by the enemy. The re-
port was read by Mr. P. in his place and
ordered to be printed.

St. Stephens, Nov. 12, 1814.
Dear sir-After an absence for more
than two months, I returned to this
place a few hours since, direct from
Pensacola. This important work, that'
has for a long time excited to much in-
terest amongst the people of this coun-
try, has at length been acted upon. Gen-
eral Jackson has visited Pensacola. On
Monday the 6th instant, the army hav-
ing advanced within a few miles of the
town, a flagwas sent in summoning a
surrender, which was met with the most
welcome rear of six or eight round of
cannon, and compelled to retreat. As
it was growing late in the evening, op-
erations were postponed until morning,
-after reveille, to arms" was beat,
and in a few moments we triumphantly
entered the town under a brisk fire of
grape and cannister from the town, and
bombs and ball from the fort, and some
British vessels that lay at anchor in the
bay. The governor was soon made
prisoner, and the town and fort sur-
rendered; notwithstanding which, the
officer commanding the fort, continued
to fire upan our forces until night, when
he marched out. The British discover-
ing we hald gained possession of the
town Nand fort, moved down to the Bar-
ranca, a strong Spanish battery that
commands the entrance of the bay-dis-
mounted the guns, and blew up the
works, which placed it entirely out of
our power to maintain possession of the
place. On the 10th we commenced our
return march for fort Montgomery, a
redoubt near the confluence of the Big-
by and Alabama.
Thus, sir, has ended the important
work for which the people of this coun-
try have so impatiently longed; and I
regret very earnestly indeed, that it
has eventuated so differently from our
expectations and fondest wishes; for
whilst it remains as at present, the pro-
perty and lives of the people of this (so
very promising) section of the United
States are insecure. We expect before
the return of spring to be powerfully
invaded, but hope to be able to keep the
enemy out of our houses, although they
may make a tremendous knocking at our

In April we had possession of the im-
portant fortress of Niagara; the enemy
had more than an equivalent to that,
having in his possession that fine dis-
trict on Lakes Huron and Erie; his
head quarters at Fort Maiden. We
possessed only a nook, lie a territory,
equal to a large principality in extent;
and so the contending parties remain
on the upper frontiers. The acOuisi-

His Majesty's packet the Frances
Freeling, (arrived at Falmouth fr'om
Lisbon,) has a third time successfully
sustained the attack of a very superior
enemy. A letter we have received
from one of the passengers states,
that all the passengers on board
had embraced the earliest opportunity
of expressing their sense of Cipt. Til-
ly's gallant conduct; whose cool previ-
ouis arrangements,- and professional
knowledge and bravery in the action,
aided by the spirited conduct of his of-
ficers and crew, ultimately enabled him
to preserve the vessel, passengers, and
his Majesty's mail, and to well sustain
the honor of the British flag. Her op-
ponent was an American privateer brig,
carrying 18 guns and 2 long 2a's amid-

lasted o0 minutes. Neither the passen-
gers nor crew, much to their -astonish-
ment, sustained any injury in the une-

TH DESPaTCHES, (c.
In the view we took -some days since on
the subject of the negotiations at Ghent, we
endeavored to show some reasons for our be-
lief that nothing favorable was to be expect-
ed from the result of those deliberations -
We can very easily account for a different
opinion, and trace it to that natural dispo-
sition of the human mind to slide into a be-
lief on.the arguments furnished by'our hopes.
Suspicion sleeps a the gate of wisdom, and
we view only .the light side of the picture'
without pr efiting at all by the observations.
of experience. With eveiy. ieason'to hope
for peace, on'r ficith min'.he sincerity of Brit-
ish professions is so weak, that, we find. but
few reasons for inducing an opinion that
we are speedily torealizewits-blessings. ;.
The idea has for a long time been enter-
tainedin Engla6d, that the-..people o.f this
country are far more divided, in .:entiment-
than they really-are ; that a-seperation, with:
her power and influence could.easily be efect-'
ed ,between the Northern and Southern
states ; and after taitpering Iwith someof
our unprincipled citizens tlirough the' agon.:'
cy of l txsa, they were not disappointed in.
a War which would afford them an, opportu-
nity of openly making the experiments It
was in this spitrt that their pretentions
were set forth at the opening o'f the congress
at Ghent; they appear to us, to h-a t been
intended to try the temper of thd people, and
if they found' us so sick of th ar," as to'

which afflict the human race; still it is a la-
unentable fact, that the attempts of the fa-
culty to remove Pulmonary affections, have
too often proved abortive. This considera-
tion with the predisposition of the subscri-
ber to Pulmonary Consumptions, has induc-
ad him, during tihe experience of tweftty
years in. the field of medicine to turn his at-
tention more particularly to consumptive,
Asthmatic and Catarrhlal complaints ; and he
has now tile satisfaction to ani3unce to the
public that he has selected arid compounded
'.om i lihe vegetable kingdom, a mild, yet effi-
cacious medicine, denominated Rogeis' Veg-
etable Pulmhnic Detergent, which he cona.-
dentally asserts, will remove the most ob-
stinate c:ugh, the precursor to a consump-
tion, and even the pulmonary consumption
itself it taken in the incipient stages of the
disease ; and according to the directions ac-
compnipyinug the medicine. This declara-
timion lie is warranted in making, from the as,
severations of thousands of respectable per-
aiis in the United States, now in the en-
joi ient of health, who, but for this medi-
cine, as a mean in thIe hands ofthe Great P're-
server of men, (fori he works by means)
would probably be pining on beds of sick-
nYmss or reposing in the grave.

erquested to give notice of any :such to the
author, through Mr. Joseph Cushing, No. 6,
North Howard street, Baltimore.
The author has been politely favored
with thejollowing letter respecting this work :
Rev. Sir-It seems matter of considera-
ble regret, that notwithstanding thle great
Newton, more than a century since, has, in
his mathematical principles of Natural Phil-
osophy, developed those discoveries, which
have met with such universal admiration
and concurrence of judgment among tilhe
learned, yet this invaluable work remains at
this day almost a locked treasure among us
This, perhaps, may, in a great measure, be
imputed to the scarcity of tracts giving
the necessary preparatory, knowledge.-
Your plan of annexing to the most useful,
important and generally read parts of Eu-
clid's Elements, a well digested and com-
pressed system of Conick Sections, seems
well calculated to diffuse that preparatory
knowledge, and to connect the Euclidean
with the higher Geometry. From the pro-
spectus and specimens of your work we have
seen, and from our confidence in your ac-
knowledged mathematical information and
talents, we have no doubt but your publica-
tion will answer this valuable purpose,be a
a useful acquisition both to preceptors and
students in Mathematics, and receive from
the public a liberal patronage.
