We, the undersigned commissioners, appoint
ed behaKof our respective governments, to in
quire into and report upon, the unfortunate oc
currence of the 6lh April inst. at Dartmoor
prison ; having carefully perused the proceed
ings of the several courts , of enquiry instituted
immediately ufter that event, by"the orders
ofSir.lohn T. Duckworth and Major General
Brown, respectively, us well us the depositions
taken al the corroner’s inquest upon the bodies
of th- prisoners, who lost, their lives upon thatt
melancholy occasion:; upon which inquest the
jury found a verdict pf justifiable homicide ;
proceeded immediately to fhe examination up
on oath in the presence^f-one or more of the
magistrates of the vicinity, of all the witnesses,
both American and English, who offered them
selves for that purpose ; or who could be disco
vered as likely to afford any material informa
tion on the subject, as well those who had beea
previously examined before the corroner, as
otherwise, Jo the numbe.rin the whole of about
eighty. We further proceeded to a minute ex
amination of the prisons, for the purpose of
clearing up some points which upon the evidenc*
alone were scarcely intelligible ; obtaining from
the prisoners, and from the officers of the depot
all the accessary assistance and explanation:
and premising, that we have been from ncces-
siiy compelled to draw-many of our conclusi
ons from statements and evidence highly con
tradictory, we do now make upon the whole
proceedings the following report!—
During the period which has elapsed Since
the arrival in this country of the account of the
ratification of the treaty cf Ghent, an increas
ed degree of restlessness and impatience of con
finement appears to have prevailed among'lhe
American prisoners at Dartmoor, which, though,
not exhibited in the shape of any violent ox-'
—,,-n.rtwn principally indicated by threat*
two days previous to the events the subject or
this inquiry, a large body of the prisoners rush
ed into the ".Market square, from whenc*, by th#
regulations of the prison, the are excluded, de
manding bread, instead- of bisenit, which had
on that day been issued by the officers of the de
pot ; their demands however having been thea
almost immediately complied with, they return
ed to their own yards, and the employment of
force on that occasion became unnecessary.
On the evening of the 6th, about 6 o'clock.'
it was clearly proved to us, that a breach op
whole had been made in one of the prison
walls, sufficient for a full sized man to pass;
and that others had been commenced in the
course of the day near the same spot, though
That a number of the prisoners were over the
railing erected to prevent them from commu
nicating with the ccnlinels on the walls, which,
was of course forbidden by the regulations of
the prison, and that in the space between the
railing and those walls they were tear ing up
pieces of turf, and wantonly pelting each other,
in a noisy aud disorderly manner.
That a much more considerable number of
the prisoners were collected together at that
time in one of their yards near the plaee where
tli£ breach was effected, and that although such
collection of prisoner* was not nnusual at other
times (.the Gambling Tables being common!/
kept in that part of the yard) yet. when con
nected with the circumstances .of the breach*
and the time of the day, which was after Iba
hour the signal for the prisoners to retire t*
heir respective prisons bad ceased to sound*
t became a natural and just ground of alarm t*
those who had charge of the deput. , ■
It was also in evidence, that in tha building
formerly the petty officers’ prison, bat now th«
guard barrack, which stands iu the yard- tw
which the hole in the wall would serve as ai
communication, a part of the'arms of the guard
who were off duty, were usually kept in th*
racks, and though there was no evidence that
this was in any respect the motive - which In
duced the prisoners to make the opening in th*
wall, or even that they were ever acquainted
with the fact, it naturally became at least •
further cause of suspicion and alarm, and aa
additional reason for precaution.
Upon these grounds Cant. Shortland appear*
te us to have been justified in giving the order,
which about this time he seem# to have given*
to sound the alarm bell, the-usual signal for
collecting the officers ®f the depot and potting
the military on the alert.
However reasonable and justifiable this wa*
as a measure of precaution, theeffecls produced
thereby in the prisons, but which cooldnot bar*
been intended, were most unfortunate, and
deeply to be regretted. A considerable num
ber of the prisoners in the yards where no dis
turbances existed before, and who wer* either
already within their respective prisons, or qui
etly returning as usual towards them, immedi
ately npon the sound of the bell rushed back
from curiosity (as it appears) towards tho gates,
where, by that time, the croud hod assembled,
and many who worts at the.time absent from
their yards, were alio, from the plaft of the pri
son, compelled in order to reach their own ho?'.- ’£
mes, to past by the same spot, and thus thaC
which was merely a measure of pr^antion, i» w
