Johnson at he nver no More notice is taken of governor Shelby or myself in the proceedings of the company than if we had not been present in the action or being present had surrendered our authority into the hands of col.

The enterprising and Learned author has brought to Light Many important fact connected with the journey Ami ministry the qualifications Lor command equal to the distinguished officers whom 1 have mentioned but i will assert without fear of contradiction that All the military arrangements for the two North we Stern campaigns that which fulled in 1812, As Well As the one which succeeded in lie following year and All the orders of Anarch and of Battle where i was personally present were the result of my own mid unassisted by the counsel or advice of any person whatever with a single exception. And that was in relation to the route by which the British army should be pursued a a question which was submitted to a Board of general officers. You cannot but know gentlemen that the Laws and military institutions of our coun Ted terms that a the army was Complete j by surprised. That dismay and despair seized upon the commander and his men a a that All was Given up As lost when a Kentucky Field officer called upon his own command of mounted rangers to Fol Low him rushed upon the enemy and with the loss of his own life gained a Complete Victory and saved the the author of this infamous fraud could not have believed that it would be credited Here it was intended to operate at a distance. Because it was known by every person who served in the action that let altho the attack was sudden and unexpected the army was As Well prepared to receive it As it could Well have Beeti 2nd, that there was no such troops As Kentucky rangers employed in the expedition. The corps commanded by lie officer named being properly equipped dragoons two thuds of which were of Indiana 3rd, that the charge made by the officer in question was the Only one of the whole action and that of course it contributed nothing to its Success but was Only the commencement of the close and desperate conflict of nearly two hours to continuance. But this attack of an Anonymous writer false and infamous As it is was not so wounding to Tny feelings As the proceedings in new York to which i have referred. I must believe that there were in the assemblage it Tam Manv Hull Many very respectable Citi try do not admit of any such association Zens and i am humiliated by the reflect of command us that which has been As Quot Tion. That i aug the Only successful com sued to have existed in the North West j Ern army that a general in chief four army is perfectly unshackled in his operations by any authority but that of the j president of the United states Thiu if i of St. Paul particularly As regards his his second 111 command Althom he May j sojourn at Antioch with rare Aba Dur possess the same Grade of commission is i ing their j it int Mission.

Arundell have decided the Point common soldiers that h is even contrary to military etiquette for officers of any Grade to intrude their opinions unasked upon their commander and Llinat even it is said of lord Bacon that when he Rode in the country he Rode with his head uncovered that he might As when asked and Given it is entirely com he said a feel the 6pirit of the not Patent to him to act in accordance with verse upon 11 it or in direct opposition a he May think Munder either by sea or land who could he thus treated. Would it be permitted in Boston to have the anniversary of the taking of the Guerriere celebrated a in Honor of Lieut now Commodore Morris who achieved the Victory a would the new yorkers themselves permit the memory of their own Brown to be insulted by announcing a Celebration of the Victory of Niagara As being a achieved by col. Miller a and yet col. Johnson stood in the same relation to me As col. Miller to genl. Brown. The services rendered by the two colonels were strikingly parallel. Both were ordered to execute a most hazardous duty. J know of no offi cer of the late army for whom i have a is there any thing unreasonable gentlemen in my wishing to be placed upon the footing of other american Gene rms my term of service in Active warfare far extends beyond that of any of them. My heart tells me that Tny Fidelity to my country has Leea As great. And although i will not dare to place myself by the a me of them in Point of military talents 1 May be permitted to refer to the published testimony of governor Shelby for hit opinion that a be had never known duties so difficult and arduous confided to tha execution of any one Maui As those assigned by the government to me. I May too considering the manner in which i have been assailed quote the conclusion of i remark that a there were hundreds in Kentucky As Welt As himself who believed it could not have been confided to better exertions which have been made to depreciate me for the purpose of elevating the Fame of col Johnson is in the eyes of every military Man exceedingly ridiculous. The claims of the subordinate officer of an army for the Gallant performance of Bis duty can never come in a we Fly rat a estion Tinq of those who have the least knowledge of military affairs with those of his general. Their spheres of action Are altogether different. Would you understand them gentlemen look at the message of president Madison to Congress in december 1813. He there informed them that what the one a prepared a the other evidence is necessary to show thut the entire plan of the Battle of the thames was a a prepared by me a Lone i refer again to the venerated Shelby. In the letter above quoted he says a your arrangements for and order of Battle were such As to give Confidence a All that we could not be beaten by double our miserable indeed must be the situation of a commanding general if the pretensions advanced by col. Johnson a Friend Are admitted. Being invested with absolute Power Over the movements of the my he is alone responsible for should they result in misfortune his reputation if not his life is at Hazard. But should they be successful the Merit of the Success is considered As alone due to those who execute his orders. Who would command an army under such circumstances who would incur the dreadful responsibility which any commander of sensibility must feel on the eve of a Battle irom the reflection that the live of so Many human beings and those his fellow citizens depend upon the Wisdom and skill with which his measures have been taken to one who has been fortunate enough successfully to pass an ordeal of that kind who has no Lack of duty to error of judgment with which to accuse himself m the various and complicated arrangements and combinations which the occasion called for How cruelly wounding must be the reflection that his claims Are postponed to that of a subordinate officer who acted under no responsibility but that of doing his own duty and with whatever gallantry it May have been done Success fully executing an order Given to him by his it appears that to Hector Craig Esq. And hrs associates at tammany Hall it is right and proper that it should be so. It is not however improbable that some of these gentlemen May have imbibed an opinion of me from a publication w hich was written some years ago in Washington and sent to the editor of the commercial advertiser by whom it was published As he assured Roe Road Vert Nelly. In this piece it is asserted by the author upon the authority of a worthy kentuckian a whom he met with on a steam boat descending the Ohio that when the enemy were discovered in their position on a he 5th october 1813, by the Advance of the army an officer was sent to apprise me of that circumstance but that i was nowhere to be found and that col. Johnson was obliged to take upon i Roselthe Battle which resulted in the Victory. The Absurdity contained in this piece and the Malignity of its object were so apparent there be
