superior command. Mr. Ludlow has published
a very ngant and manly appeal the public ;
in which, besides doing enure justice toltne re

that it was possible amply' to have rewarded, that

causes which led to the passage of the law are
,not. only disclosed in its preamble, but are of geh
e'ral notoriety. A, powerful armament, of the
enemy had entered the-waters, of the common
wealth under, circumstances well calculated c-o
justify the most serious alarm : an event of this
kind not having been anticipated, no effectual
measures had.been adopted for our defence, and
our eastern frontier was greatly exposed. Such
was our condition and such our danger when
the law received the assent of the Legislature.
Shortly after its 'adjournment, the General Go
vernment, havitig in conformity with its power
and duty, taken upon' itself, the defence of the
State, sanctioned the course pursued by the Exe

further detachment as might be necessary, and
