W;him.ton City, March 25, Kifl.
Pmr Sir: Your letter of iho 2Utu 1ms been re
ceived, and I most cheerfully comply with your re-que-!,
in giving xui.1i an account of the transactions
at Sanihi.sky, as my memory, at this period, and
my time enable mo to do.
About iho l-'Oth of July, 113, Oen. Harrison,
t li-t) nt the Lower Sandusky, hearing thai the Bri
tish army had crossed Lake Erie, to Fort Meigs,
"being about five - tiioosand strong, immediately
. changed his head quarters lo Seneca, seven pr
"eiaht miles Hp the Sandusky river, where he nss
semhled his forces, Jhen on 'lie march from the in
terior, leaving Maj, Croghan, with alut 150 men
to Jcfuiid Fort Slephcnsun; with an understanding
'fit (lie time that the fort, then -in-a-weak and
wretched condition, wis to be nltaudoned, should
the enemy advance with artillery; but if riot, to be
defended lo the Iar-t nvtremily.
Harrison, with his force, then small, had scarce.
r1y left wrtiefhretTrri'g
iorl (which was only a slockading of -email round
logs, and a few log store hmises) in a proper state
of tlef'ince, in which he evinced the most admirable
judgement and the mnat untiring perseverance.
During" the last tenor twelve days that inter
vened between the lime that Gen. Ilarrisoe left us
I ilm iiiiiiMiiraium of lliw nnemy; ditell was dug,
four feet deep and six feet wide, entirely round the
"fort," outside the slockading, tho ground for 200
and iimiiy oilier prepa rations made for the enemy.
About this time (Jen. Uartison.jcceived infor
mation that tiie ennmy had raised the eeig al Fort
Meios, and had started in the direction of Sandus
ky and Camp Seneca. - On receiving this intelli
gencr, he determined' to retrr-at from his position;
and immediately writ an express to Fort Stephen
goo, which arrived ubout aunrise, ordering Maj.
Croghan to burn the fori with alt the munition
and stores, and retreat vilkout iilay tb head quar-
4er, giving also ome precautionary instructions
about the route, A.-C.." ' '- -, --

Gen. Harrison- detatched Li. Col. Hall, with bis

done,) and. sent another officer' ta take command.
By Bi liimviii .vonsequeaoe ol hi not arriving
aLTceauly miis expectations and orders, tne lien
abandoned all idea of retreat, although his muni,
lions and stores were piled up ready to be set on
fire as soon as Crnghan should reach Seneca; and
it is uot to bo duuWd that if Croghan had arrived
according to orders 03" Gen. Harrison would have
retreated instantly, leaving the whole frontier, our
fleet at Erie, and tho stores at Cloveland the des

turned to. Sandusky, aud was re-instated iu his
command, An occasion which gave indiscribablo
joy to the officers and -soldier in the fort, and
winch only could bo equalled in intensity of teeling
by the chagrin evinced at his arrest. Especially
was the event pleasing to thoso officer who had
sustained him in disobeying the order, resolved as
they were, when he was arrested, to share bis lute,
be it good or evil. . .
Soon after his return, the enemy, so lung cxpec
ted, made his appearance, and demanded a snrren
der. Croghau answered, by directing Ensign
Shipp to assure Gen. Proctor that it would be
blown to first. "-.

, Dear S): Your letter of the 3d insi. i ro
. ceived, and I hasten tq reply, l?y way of answer.
ing your question, I will cite you to some law and
some facts. ; , ;
1. It is a raw of legislation, that every bill ap
propriating money must be considered in commit-
Joe of the whole house.
, 'i. In ceiDinittco of thcwhole tho previous ones'
liori cannot he called, nor m there any way to slop
siieech-making, exeer by continiiing n aewinn,
dy and night, till the peech maker become tired
out and give in. ,
3. There is a majority of each House Demo
crat -but of that majorityi rt i wsnally tho case,
that enough are ill, or otherwise engaged, to make
. those present los thaji a inupiriiy. The New Jer.
sey delegation have Injcn' kept in Jersey, attending
la Hiking evidence lo support JtlwHr cUmiJ ld! their:
scats, or rather in w! telling thiir opponents,-est
they should prove something that has no existence. .
This grows out Snf the wickedness or folly of the
Governor of New Jersey in certifying to the tier,
tion of men, who were not elected, V ' :
. 4. It required a majority of nil the members
elected to make n quorum to " go ahead with bu
siness. Cun-ienucnlly, if few Democrats rc du
tnined out ot the House by illness, ur other busi
ncss, nothing can be done without some of tho oth
er party J ; t' !
5. Frequently, when the Iloiisii wqa in. this fix,
the W higs would go without the bar, so as to leavu
less than I quorum, and so stop business. t oth
er tithes, the Prenident-making speech makers
hava availed themselves of the privileges of the
committee of I he whole to muke speeches without
an end, at their own pleasure. ,
, 0. It has been deemed necessary fn pnss Uie ap
propriatloo bills be lor o going much Into other bu
siness, so that those who have labored fur thu
country, and wir saikn,- aohliers, and-pubjic-er-vants,
aliould (jet -their money. It was necessary
kipass lhe licnsury iNoto bill, to enable the Do-
pnrtuieiit to raio money ta meet appropriations,
the compromise InrilT, and the distribution of tho
surplus revenue having made1 the Treasury very
scant of funds.
7. When we undertake to ait day and night, so
as to woury out the Hpeecli-uiiikers, they Imvo the
advantage of us ; bccaue wo are bound all lo stay,
to wuicli tlieui and knpp a quorum in the House ;
