Savannah,October 25, 1802.
The Court Martial,'of which Major Shad
was Prrfident, ordered for the trial of Lieu
tenant Stackhoufe, on the charges exhibited
against him by Lt. Cos!. Mitchell, having
, Tound him gudey of the firft, third, 2nd fourth
charges— to wit :
“ 1 ft. For uncfficerlike conduifl on the eve
ning of the 29th of September last, whiift on
duty, in breaking open, and raking pofttfilon
by military force, of tire houlc ot Mr. Isom
CLy, on Tybee Tfland.
yd. For disobedience of orders and nnoffi
cerlike conduft, in leaving his poll from the
morning of the 30th of 6’eptembcr until his
detachment was re iIC vcd.
4th. For disobedience of orders and unoffi,
ciahke conduct, on the eleventh infract, i n
not delivering up his fvvord when arretled.’*
And thereon having* fentenccd him to re
ceive a reprimand from the Major-General
rnd s o pay a sum of one hundred’ and eighty
dollars, being equal to months pay when
in adual fervice —the Major-General con
firms the sentence and difibives the court.
V/liilft however, the Major-General is in
duced to confirm the sentence, he is impelled
to remark that it has been more indulgent
than Lieutenant Stackhoufe had a rihr to
expect. The Lieutenant was sent to the sta
tion at Cockfpur, to piotetft the citizens and
their property—nor to violate their rights and
break open their houses. He was in a final
service—the country in a flute of alarm, not
only in Georgia, but along the whole fouchern
route ot the TJrdcrd 3veCics . lirvufjxjp and fjj„
furrefbion were expefled, against either cf
which the ft ate had a right to proted herfelf
until the arm of the Union could be extended
so her support. In such a situation as this,
for an officer to leave his post— the post of
I iONOR as regarded himftlf, and of TRUST
as it rcipeded his country — was unpardona
ble. It afftded his com million, if the rigour
of the law had been pursued—is not his life.
Again, as it refpeds the fourth charge.—
The refufai of his sword to the order of the
‘Colonel, is a gross violation of aii military
rule—the commiftlon is the authority under
which the officer has a right to wear the fwor* s
as such —and the fvvord is the security or bail
to the date, that the officer will faithfully
perform the trust reposed in him—if the prin
cipal fails the lecurity becomes liable, and the
sword mud be taken from the cfficeF charged
with violating his contrails.
But the idea of cn officer’s sword beinc
private property after he receives Ids com
iniffion is a mistaken one—the commiftlon is
an exchange tor its value—lt belongs foltdv
to his country as rcipeCts its life whiift he
holds his commiftlon, and may legally and
iliall be- demanded hereafter on all oegafions
of arrdt, in the firft divifton, and the
refuting (hall be punished if a Court Martial
wilt order it—or be confined if the
officer requires it.
is hoped thatgthe leniency of the sentence in
the case cf Lieut. Stackhoufe will never be
relied on by any officer on any future oecafion.
Lieutenant Stackhoufe (lands highly culpable
in the Major-Generai’s view, and is hereby
leverely reprimanded, with a hope that it
wd! be a warning to him in his future milita
The Lieutenant will pay intp the hands
of the proper officer of the Chatham Regi
ment, the fine of one hundred and eighty dol
lars—-being the sentence of the court, within
one month from the date of this order, and
iland arrefled until the fame is discharged—
no resignation will be accepted—and if the
fame be not paid in one month, the com
manding officer of the Chatham Regiment
will ifTue his warrant to levy the fame.
This order will be published in one of the
Gazettes ot this city, for the’ information of the
officers of the First: Divifton.
