The following letter, though containing no- i the battalion should, after being so near the
enemy and the battle field, be thus foiled by the
great oversight (not to say carelessness) of the
proper officer in procuring the necessary num
ber of rations. It was rumored also, that
general Gaines’ movement had completely
irustrated the plans of the commander-in chief,
general Scott, which were said to have been
well and judiciously formed, the}' were as fol
lows: the left wing of the army under general
Eustis, the centre under colonel I.indsey, and
tiie right wing under general Clinch, all moving
simultaneously and so well timed ns to arrive at
their different stations, surround the enemy, and
commence the attack at one and the same time.
Had these plans been carried into execution,
there is little doubt but that an effectual blow
would have been struck and the war ended.—
There appears however, to be an unforlunnte
rivalry between the two celebrated generals
who have so distinguished themselves hereto
fore, and an old and bitter feud is said to exist
between them. The orders from head-quarters
thing of an important nature, will still bo read
with interest. It was brought by one of the

The rashness of the Ministry had at length
involved them in a general quarrel—^Parrel with
America, quarrel with foreign powers, and quar
rel at home. Wilkes, the printer who published
the debates in Parliament, and the Mayor and
Aldermen who were imprisoned for resisting the
authority of the house of Commons, were the
civil antagonists. In every conflict with them,
the Ministry were worsted. Burke took a
vigorous share in those perpetual debates, and
lie made continual progress in the public admira
tion. His speaking was in a style totally new to
the House and the nation. But two eminent
orators had appeared inParliament foracenturv.
Bollingbroke, rich, dexterous and fluent, the
prince of rhetoricians: Chatham, condensed,
pointed and brilliant, irregular in his conceptions,
and unequal in his efforts; but when lie put forth
his strength, striking with prodigious power, the
weight, directness, and fire ofa thunderbolt. But
like the thunderbolt, his eloquence was gener.
ated by the storm, and fit only for the storm.—
Burke’s larger scholarship and finer philosophy
produced an eloquence not less fluent than tile
one, or less vivid than the other; but still more
cheering, magnificent und fruitful of noble
thoughts and generous purposes. When lie
spoke, beseemed to be speaking, not for the
time, but For the benefit of centuries to come;
less lor the triumph of his party, than for the
well being of the human race. All his speeches
arc profound wisdom administering to daily
practice. The House, perpetually astonished
by the opulent variety of his knowledge by l.is
sudden illustrations, gathered from every art nnd
science, by thcliving splendours which he caught
from everv region of human research, and lias-

The following lines were written by the late Miss 3Iar-
Tiia Day, a daughter of President Day, of Yale College.
I would not wish that o’er my grave,
A rose or myrtle bough should lean,
Nor e’en the willow there should wave,
Nor aught but wild flowers should be seen.
I would not wish that those I love
Should wander there at close of day,
And think of her o’er whom they rove
As dwelling only with decay
Or gazing on the little mound,
Imagine all they caunol see,
And, starting at the slightest sound,
With chilling horror think of me.
No, but in each familiar spot,
Which both to me and them was dear,
There I would not be all forgot.
Yet ne’er remembered with a tear.
In the sweet home I loved so well,
Round them unseen I oft would fly,
Teaching the summer breeze to sweli
With notes of spirit melody.
And something in that half-heard strain
, Should breathe an unforgotten voice,
And bringing thoughts all free from pain,
Should still forbid them to rejoice.
Or when around the cheerful hearth
Parents and children meet at eve,
While beaU each heart with love and mirth,|
Oh! should 1 w'sh those hearts to grieve?
Yet I would hover in the air
And bind each heart with spells unknown,
Till they should feel my .spirit there,
Mingling in every look and tone.
Each glance of childhood’s sparkling eye,
Each thrilling sound of childish glee,
And every pensive look or sigh
All should some token bear of me.
Yet with my memory should not come
One thought of dear affections crossed,
Or any shade in that loved home,
To which I never could be lost.

The day was a very hot one—the roads were

After much fatigue, the battallion reached a
rising grassy plat near a cool stream of running
water, about five miles and three-quarters from
Picolata. where we pitched our camp. The
day following, the 26th, we marched fourteen
miles, the country continuing as level, the land
getting poorer, and less good water than met
with the day previous. The column this day
detained two hours by the waggons getting stall

and spades, and a good deal of exertion used,
they were extricated, and slowly proceeded
onward, and wending our way like a dull lazy

Wednesday, 2d March.—The weather last
night very severe, owing to the high winds,
heavy rains and a sudden change in the atmos
phere. Early this morning, another messenger
rode past from Fort Drane; lie reported that the
J fighting was continued up to yesterday, at 4
| o’clock, P. M. that the parties occupied each
side of the river; and that several regulars and
volunteers were killed. His business was, in
going to Picolata, for more guns and ammuni
tion. Last evening, just before sunset, ihe
shrill notes of a distant bugle announced the
arrival of cavalry; soon a long cavalcade hove
in sight, on which the loud and repeated hurrahs
hats and halloing followed from the joyful
crowd.. They were the Jefferson, Washington,
Houston and Hancock companies of mounted
men, numbering near three hundred. It was
also reported in the camp by the Major yester
day afternoon, that a squad of about twenty
Indians had been committing depredations fif
teen miles up the river above Picolata, and that
an express arrived there for assistance to put
them down. The two campanies named above
are now at Picolata waiting orders. Captain
Allen’s company of mounted men from Hous

captain, only entered into the service.

Monday 29th.—The battalion, at the hearing
of reveille, were busily engaged in cooking
their.breakfast and getting ready for an early
march. By 8 o’clock the column was formed
in marching order—the day a hot and sultry
one. ’ By sunset we had proceeded fifteen miles,
the roads, owing to the heavy rains just fallen,
almost impassable, for two-thirds of the distance

often stuck in the deep gulleys, and once or
twice upset in the water. The men, many of
them, complaining of sore feet, caused by the

general Gaines had fought a battle with the
Indians near the banks of the Withlacoochee,

A Writer in the dlobe relates an incident which
took place a year or two since at Lisbon, similar
in character to that represented in Mr. White’s
picture of the Unfurling of the American Flag
at Mexico. It is described as follows:—
Upon the capture of Lisbon by Don Pedro,
his brother Don Miguel abandoned theseigeof
Oporto aud encamped with his army before
the capital. The country residence of Mr.
Brent, the American Charge d’Affaires, was
situated upon the bunks of the river Tagus, and
near it engagements sometimes took place, be
tween siyial! detachments, of the two con-
tending armies. On one occasion, during the
absence of Mr. Brent, a company of troops of
Don Miguel, having appeared on a height near
that country seat, a battle ensued between it
and some armed boats of Don Pedro, in the
Tagus. While the battle was raging, the shot
passed so near the residence of Mr. Brent, as
to endanger the safety of the family; whereupon
Mrs. Brent, alarmed at their situation, rushed
forward, and with her own hands, unfurled “the
star spangled banner” and waved it from the
window. The sight of the “broad stripes and
bright stars” had a most wonderful effect on the
contending forces. The firing on both sides
instantaneously ceased and Mrs. Brent retired
fromthe window, perfectly satisfied of her secu
rity, while under protection of the American"
