UttvvftraV WviU’a .Acu\diva,
Os the Campaign of the North IHsle.ru t
Ann]/, in the year 1812. Addressed to\
the people of the United Slates,
That you may clearly understand the si
tuation in winch 1 was placed, with res
pect to provision, lor the army, it will lx*
necessary, that you should lie acquainted
with the country, and its resources. At
this time the population id’ the Michigan
territory, of which Detroit was the capital,
was between four and live thousand souls,
TV-ir settlements were on the Miami of
lake Erie, the river Raisin, Ecoss, Rouge,
and the Detroit river, lake St. Clair, the
river Huron, which empties into lake St.
Clair, the river St. Clair, and the island of
Michillimackanack—at thatjime much the
greatest part, indeed almost the whole, who
cultivated tlie laud, were Canadians.—
They were miserable farmers, paid little
attention to agriculture, and depended
principally on hunting, fishing, and trading
with the Indians for support.— The pro
duce of tiie territory, in the substantial ar
ticles of living, was by no means sufficient
for the subsiste ice of the inhabitants.—
They were supplied, with pork, beef, (lour,
and corn from the State ol Ohio, and the
parts of New York and Pennsylvania,
winch bonier on lake Erie—notwithstand
ing these facts are well known, I will refer
to some testimony, to satUfv those, who are
unacquainted with the territory.
Cap). Thomson Maxwull, in his evidence
on my trial, testified, “ that he had lived
thirteen years in Ohio, aod had been engag
ed every year, in driving cattle and nogs,
from thence to Detroit market; from a
thousand to fifteen hundred hugs annually,
from one hundred and fifty, to two hundred
pounds each—and from* an hundred and
idly, to two hundred head of cattle.— They
„ were- generally driven through the woods,
without any road. ’ —Col. KLiogsburv, of the
Ist United States’ regiment, testified,
" that he commanded at Detroit about two
years, and left it in 1811, and that during
the time he commanded there, there were
large droves of hogs, and fat beef cattle,
driven from Ohio, to tint market.”
A great variety of other evidence might
be adduce I to prove his fact, but 1 deem it
It is only necessary to know the charac
ter of the inhabitant® ami the situation of
the country, tube satisfied of the fact—uni
versal experience proves, that nothing hu(
necessity will induce men to toil and hard
labour. They are much better pleased
with the chase, fishing, &c. Without mak
ing any further observations on this sub
ject, I believe yuu will be convinced, after
considering how long the army hail been
among these people, and how much had
been taken Iroin them that there were, no
grounds, to calculate on any further sup
plies from their scanty stores.
I shall now endeavour to denonstrate,
from the best evidence which the nature of
the case will admit, the slate of piovisions
at Detroit, at the time of the capitulation.
Augustus Porter, Esq. of the State of
New-York, was the contractor for furnish
ing this army .—David Beard, E-q. was his
agent, and was present at Detroit.
Helore my trial, ami pending my trial, I
repeatedly requested that David Heard who
then resided in the State of New-Vurk,
might be summoned as a witness to prove the
quantity ol provisions at Detroit before, and
at the time of the capitulation. The Judge
advocate assured me, he should be summon
ed. Near the close of the trial, us he did
not appear, I wrote him a letter informing
him how important Ins testimony was, and
requested his attendance. He arrived in
Albany the day the evidence was closed,
and his certificate of the quantity of provis
ions, was admitted in evidence. It will
appear by the minutes of the trial that his
testimony, was the last before I made my
defence. This being the best evidence
which the nature of the case will admit of,
1 presume ought to controul all other evi
dence. Mr. Heard, was not only the agent,
who did all the Business at Detroit, nut 1
understood from him, had some share in the
profits of the contract. He could have no
motive, to have diminished the quantity, be
cause the United States must haie paid lm
all that was on hand at the time of the ca
Hy the contractor’s agent’s certificate, it
will appear that on the ninth of July, 1812,
diere was at Detroit 120,000 rations of Hour,’
.and 70,666 rations of meat; and that on the -
28th of July; there was 70,000 rations of
>ur, and 21,000 of meat. Mr. Heard has
unified that this statement was handed to
ne, containing the provisions in the contrac
'or’s store, and signed by him as will appear
»v the proceedings ot the Court Martial, on
. «y tl ds return, it will appear, what quan
tity wa.. consumed, from the ninth, to the
28th of July, what quantify remained on
ham 1 , the 28(h of July, and by observing tfie
same rule of consumption, it will appear,
what quantity, would have been in store,
on the I6tli of August, the day of the ca
By Hie data here given it will appear that,
if a ration of meat had been issued, the meat
would have been exhausted on the 6th of
August, ten days before Hie capitulation.
And it during those ten days, after the meat
was exhausted, an additional quantity of
Hour had been issued, to make up the ra
tion, as was the case, the whole of the flour
would have been exhausted on the 1 Oth of
August, the day of the capitulation. It ap
pears by the return of the contracter, that
jlVoin the9lh to the 28th of July, that 5,334
' I rations of flour, more than of meat were is
sued, and that practice was continued, in
about the same proportion, until (he 16th!
.of August. There is another reason why!
so much more flour was issued than meat.
. —ln a former part of diese memoirs, 1 sta
led, that the old Indian Chiefs and Sachems
continued friendly to the United States,!
, and advised the warriors not to join the
British standard, or to take any part in the
, contest. These friendly duel's and Sa
f cherns, with the women and children, daily
came to Detroit from the villages, in a star
. ving condition. It had long been the cus
tom, and I was ordered by the govern- '
( meat, as superintendant of Indian attain, I
, on their visit to this p ist, to furnish them 1
, with provisions. At this time, I directed,
. on account of the deficiency of meat, that!
, flour alone should be issued, whic'u they
I preferred. Every effort was made to pre
, vent these visits, and nu more provisions
! were issued to them, than was necessary to
preserve li f e.
[ Perhaps it may be asked by those unac
. quainted with my situation, and the prac
tice of armies, wliy so many more rations
I were daily issued, than the number of ef
fective men, which composed the army ? 1
will give the (rue answer to an enquiry of .
. this kind. <
It vvill appear by the foregoing memoirs,
that the officers and soldieis trom Michilla- '
, mackanack had arrived at Detroit, prison I
ei s on parole, and they had no other means
ol subsistence, but to receive rations. !
It likewise appears, that a large number j
of old Indian Chiefs and Sachems, daily
visited our camp, and were fed from the 1
public stores by order of the Government, I
I as 1 before stated. 1
It was now the middle of August, and a
large number of sick were to be provided '
, tor, and there being no medical stores it was
neceasary to issue meat and flour, for their '
| subsistence. 1
r A number of women, are attached to all '
1 armies, and it is a general custom to furnish
them with provisions. All the officers are 1
entitled to extra rations, from twelve to two. '
I All the quarter-musters’department, sucii '
t as waggoners, pack-horse men, boatmen, &c. '
are entitled to rations. I think this statement!
will satisfy any enquiries on this subject. I
Although every possible effort was made
, by the administration to prove, that the state i
of the provisions, was no reason for the cap- I
halation ; yet, on a careful examination of
ail the evidecce on my trial, I can find no-|i
thing which ought to have any weight in I ■
any degree to controul, or vary the state- 1
ment, here made. It has been said by Cols.
M’Arthur and Cass, and other witnesses, '
that they never heard any complaints of *
the want of provision Brevet-Major Wnist- i
ler is the only witness, who has given any s
testimony on this subject worthy of notice.
His testimony is in the words -following : 1
” 1 went, some days before the army re- I
crossed, with a Mr. Heard, the deputy con- »
tractor, to a store which held the provisions I
of the army, and saw, and helped to count I
between 2 and 3t)o ban els of Ilnur, 48 bar <
rels ot pork, and 16 or 17 barrels of salt
beef.” From this testimony of the Brevet
Major, it is impossible to determine, the
quantity, if any, whicli was in the store on
the 16th ol August. And tor this conclu- s
sive reason, that lie does not ascertain the
day, that he was in the store, and it is im- t
possible to ascertain it, from any thing he t
said. He said,“some d. ys before the ar- x
my re-crossed the river.” It might have |
been three or four days before, or it might
have been fifteen or twenty. It is untor- 1 !
lunate for me, that he did not recollect the'
day, because had it been only three or four'!]
days before the army re crossed the liver,'u
the quantity, by his testimony, would not]
have been so great, as it appears to be by],,
the returns of the deputy contractor. This
can easily be ascertained and reduced to' c
mathematical demonstration, from the data],
I feel confident, that I am not blinded q;
by prejudice in believing, that every per
son, who will read this statement, and the!*
evidence, by which it is proved to be true,! j,
will be satisfied, that the state of the Piovi- ,
sions in the store, and the impossibility ofi .
obtaining a supply, from any other q i u tcr,;
presented very powerful reasons, u.r the* .

Steam low boat*, and a passage to New-York in 24 hours lor a
A new era has commenced in our steam- I
boat history. This morning arrived opposite
to tins city the steamboat Henry Eckfonl,
with two large boats in tow from New-York. I
They were only partially loaded, and made ;
their passage in 23 hours, and passed thro’ .
the lock into the basin : it will probably re
quire, on the average, 24 hours, or one-fourth
more time, to make a passage with loaded
boats, than steam passage boats.
These boats are substantially built in the i
manner of Albany Sloops, each 80 tons bur- s
then, and in all respects like them,carrying 1
chant cables and windlasses, with the excep- i
tion of masts, and will draw about five feet i
water fully loaded. They contain two cabins i
tor passengers at a dollar a head. Sis boats i
are newly constructed on the same plan; i
the steamboat will take up two, which are I
left to load, the same day she takes down (
iwo loaded, and returns from New-York to i
Aliiany, so as to tie all the time in motion.

will require a small stretch of forecast to

subject to every man’s reflection. As it has
it often been predicted that a passage from
e New-York to Albany would, at some peri-
I'd, be reduced to one dollar—we should not
be surprized that a period will also arrive ]

An account was published in the Madrid' 3

Havre, April 1.
Referring to our last of the 25th ult. we,
now submit to your perusal our monthly
statement of the cotton trade in this place,
by which you will notice that the stock of
all sorts is reduced to 9931 bales. The
quantity in the interior must also be triflings
the dealers in consequence of the high prfv
ces, having bought sparingly and only for
immediate wants. The accounts from Eng
land continue favorable, and yesterday again,
about 1200 bales Louisiana were purchased
at 37 to 40s, and added by the English
speculators to their present stock, so that
they now are in possession of full two-thirds
of the cottons in the market, and remain
masters of the field. The easterly winds
prevent arrivals. The vessels expected,
will come in all at once, and may have a
momentary effect on the prices, but cannot
be of long duration, as the quantities expec
ted are smaller than usual.
We now quote uplands at 35. i a 37»

dealer in ashes, who had almost 1200 bbls.

Owing to the late hour at which the let*
ters by the Sakina, from Liverpool yester
day reached the Post Office, we were not
able to give any private information as to
maikets. Since then it has been ascertained
that cottons were in active demand at in
creased prices, (for particulars whereof we
refer to our commercial record) ami that
grain was dull from the report that the corn
laws were to be repealed, or essentially mo
dified. If, as our correspondent communi*.
cates the report, Mr. Curwen, the great
champion of the country gentlemen and
agricultural monoply, is to introduce any
motion for such a,purpose, it will certainly
prevail; for it is not to be doubted a mo
ment, that a ministry entertaining such
sound and rational views on all questions of
political economy as the present one in
Great Britain, has only been deterred from
moving itself in this business, by apprehen
sion of being deserted by the country gentle
men. The repeal of these unreasonable and
oppressive laws, is indeed alone wanting to
give security and effect to the vast steps al*
ready made in that country towards shaking
off the shackles of old and rivetted systems
of restrict ion. Nor are the friends of free
trade idle ; petitions have been sent in from
various commercial and ftianufacturing dis
tricts, soliciting a repeal of the corn laws.
And if Mr. Curwen and other agriculturists
nave been satisfied of the expediency of such
i measure, it can hardly fail.
We are not aware, however, of any im
mediate pecuniary benefit to be derived to
this country from a repeal of the corn laws—-
seeing (hat agricultural produce is about as
ow in Europe as here. Portland, France,
the Netherlands, not to advert to the gram
mes of Egypt, can all furnish the British
market as cheaply as we could, and their
greater proximity will give them theadvan*
age of early information and prompt supply.
