DBAU SIR J—f th«plt yon lot your 1i$er bi rie 9th iHstant, with PAUCEE'S Histocy oi tjiko Ihamplain from 1809 to 1814. TBJT55iffl5rm With these remarks, and after the many great victories which have ocotirod iil otir owW country within the fast five years, I cannot beV ieve that the part I acted iu the \ror of 1815 md 1815, will attract at this time biiUer atton- ion or notice, although what I may bavo done, might at the time have been considered of im\ aortatics. Yet, as you nave requested it in bc- HI! of Mr. Palmer, r wui present a. few facts, rhioh will not be altogether out of place, and •hicii will explain bow if happened that I went out and met the advance of the British fofde\ sn the Beekmantown road on the morning ,of ;he 6th September 1814. . On the afternoon of the ' 5th September, in' consequence of oar troops (ailing bask without my other resistance than felliug trees. to 6b- Jruct the march of the 1 enetfy on ft& Chaay or 1 direct road to Pittsburgh, I called/m Brigadier iGaetjt Macotflb when I Maid, \Some inipres- iion I think ought to be made on the BritlabV .t least so far as to let them Know that we 3n- eudad (o givo them battle. It would\ \te & jreat dis^raeo to our arms to permit the British to reach Pittsburgh without some show of re-\ mtanoe.\ It was under these' circumstances 'hat I asked permission to (to oat sind meet the' ' snemy, which after repeated solicitations waff reluotantly granted by the general., file order-* el Captain Leonard of tbe tLight Artillery, to\ go with me, besides fifty additional Infantry.—- At 12 o'olnok of tbo eteqing of the 5;h au'cC 3th I left Flattaburgh with two hundred. and Jifty Infantry—Captain Leonard refused to obey the order—and arrived at Ira Hotfe't&rffaenoe at day-light, 1% miles, sis reported, fifom Plattt- biirgh. Soou after I ujet the enemy and ielr 1 back to Culver's Hill in'the manner stated in' mm fenback•fcSSSo^ ^^.^^ tho whole distanoe a regular street BriUK.

Here Major Appling joipfd ipe with' his liJHe- men 4 and after a few deBfructTve rounds on tbe' enemy, w* were ordered by Qeuefal MacomV to cross the Saranac—our left flank fronting the enemy being threatened. On arriving at the\ bridge I found C4ptain Sprout with bis com- pany at ordered arms. I directed him to pro- tect the troops crossing theBrklgfe. He very soon forgot the order and with his company was one of Ui« first to cft«(S the bridge, j 'crossetf, was one of the first to cross to b then directed him after the troops fmd cro to take op tbe planks of th« bridge, bat he forgot this order, and retired t» the forts b i d d he I d soon ._. o , ._ _ ..., . rtsv not beiiig Uuder my command, when I ordered Cupt. John Rochester to perform that important service, whieh lie did in the most galhuit style/ In performing tbis service lie loSt drier officer and several men. In tbe mean time I formed (Jf* troops on the bauk of the Saranao fronting\ Plattebnrgh, having been reinforced with * few infantry and two additional pieces ot flbld 1 Artillery, and with aid from the Block House commanding the crossing at this jrointj we; drove the British from the baiJk of tbe river\ wlien they retreated some distance in rear a,n<r north r»f the v»}ajfe where they remained until 1 . tbe Tlth ot September. • ^ . After driving tbe British from the village, t retired with my command aud reported to' Brigadier General Maoomb. I was ordered to Foicfc Monroe, which I found incapable of de- fense ia consequence oi its crowded condition' with troops, baggage, tents aud supplies. It was impossible to serve the guhs. I called the attention of the General to its condition, when he ordered the troops not,required for its defence, and tents, baggage Stc he: to be removed outside.
