there now remamcd no other mode,
than to call into the Held a force-adequate
to the command of every ho
norable object. The force was a
bundant throughout the community,
to secure, it oirected crtth skill, spi
rit and enterprize,our defence every
.where ; and, by Hence, to make the
enemy feel it had become his inter
est to abstain from plunder and op'
pressioa. '
TV eTect the first great object, de
fence of the exposed parts, it struck
him as of prima- importance, that
the whole jurisdictional limits ef the
U States should be divided into mi
litary districts, that the command of
each should be entrusted to an intel
ligent officer, who should have under
his command certain portions bf ar
tillery :nd infantry of the. regular ar
my that in each district, there should
be a sufficient number of cannon
mounted on travelling carriages.which
could be rapidly dirtcted to such
parts as may be threatened and an
engineer to dev ise the plans and su
per intend the erection of such works
of defence as raav be necessary.
j force from the fiefd you should cross

ed army twenty thousand stronjftwith

troops indispensable of)iO,000. VVe
ought tiot to calculate oji peace. Ad
ministration have in yain siled for ltx
throtigh Mr. Russell, even at the ex
pence of the sarcastic sneers of the
British minister ? let us then prepare
in pood earnest forwar. If the spring
shall not bring with it peace, the cam
paign must open in ; a style "of vigor
and force calculated to inspire confi
dence of success among ourselves
and awe in the enemj-. The result
of such a state of things will be as fa
vorable to us, by depressing the spi
rits of the adversary, as by making
nurown troops undaunted nothing
must be left to chance that is within
the compass of our means wo must
deserve to be fortunate. To be sue
cessful our movements every where
mu$t be in concert ; at the same mo
ment we move on Canada, a corps of
10,000 men should from the Province
of Maine threaten Halifax ; as a di-
