Logansport Canal Telegraph (Newspaper) - March 5, 1836, Logansport, Indiana An Ai by s. Lasselle amp j. B. Dillon t i a merry ride. During the revolutionary War when a corps of the american army were encamped near the Borough of Exzabe thrown in new Jar Vej an officer who was rather More of a devotee of Venus than of Mars paid his Andros ii to a lady of distinction whom he was in the habit of visiting nightly in the cultivation of those kindly feelings which love so cordially inspires. On the discovery of the cause of the repeated absence of the officer and of the place where his interviews with his Dulcinea were had Tome waggish Friend a resolved to Plav off a trick at his expense which should deter him from a repetition of bit amorous visits. The officer it appears Rode a very Small hone of the Pony kind which he always left untied with the bridle reins Over his neck the door in order to mount and ride off without delay when the business of courting and kissing was Over and the horse remained until backed by the owner without attempting to change his position. On a certain very dark night when the officer had As usual gone to pay his Devoirs to the object of his affections and was enjoying the approving smiles a of the Lovely fair one his waggish companions went privately to the door of the House a where the officer was took the bridle and Saddle from the horse which they sent quietly away placed the former on the Tail and the Jatter on the Back of a very sober rum native old cow with the Crupper Over her horns who stood peaceably chewing her cud near the spot. Immediately thereafter they retired some distance from the House and separating gave the loud alarm that the enemy had landed and were marching in full Force into the Village. On hearing tie voice of alarm the people ran out greatly excited and consternation entering every dwelling found its unwelcome Way speedily into the household Temple where our Oicer was worshipping. Taking counsel from his fears and snatching a Hasty kiss he started from the lady s chamber and Rushing Down stairs shot out of doors with the velocity of a Musket Ball and owing to the darkness not seeing the interesting change in the conformation of his nag mounted hastily upon tic Saddle with his k Toiv Ards tie head of the cow and plunging his spurs deeply into her sides caused her to bawl out with excessive pain and she darted off in Gallant style and in her Best Gallop made Tom ads the Camp.

The courageous sentinels hearing the noise and imagining no doubt that Hannibal and his oxen were coming discharged their pieces and fled As if the Devil had chased them. The alarm guns were tired the Drums beat to arms and the offers left their quarters and cried a turn out quot quot turn out quot with All the strength of their lungs. The soldiers started from their sleep As if a ghost had crossed their dreams and the whole body running half naked together formed As Quick As possible in Gallant Dis Habille prepared to repel the terrible invader. When to the ludicrous sight soon presented its it of to their eyes of the Gallant officer mounted on an old cow with his face towards her Tail and thi appendage sticking straight out behind her Tongue hanging out her sides lacerated with the grievous gigging of the spurs and himself owing to his excessive fear almost deprived of reason and half petrified with horror a loud and gerneral Roar of laughter broke from the assent Lcy band at the rider and his Steed the whole corps gave him three Hearty cheers As he bolted into the Camp and was seized and carried to his quarters of Triumph there to dream of love s metamorphoses backward rides Stem away advances and alarms of invasions and thereby to furnish his Nind with the materials for writing a splendid treaties on the novel adventures of co ology.

General Harrison thinking hard of the Dander which threatened fort Wayne detached from his Force which was advanced As far As Piqua col. Allen s regiment with Throe other companies with orders to make forced marches Lor its Relief. From the secular position in which he stood to Gen. Winchester who was designated at this period to take the command of the Western army and regain the territory lost by the cowardice of Gen. Hull Gen. Harrison had intended for want of a definite understanding with the War department to resign his command at Piqua to the former general. But on hearing of the critical situation of fort Wayne made More so by the departure of an additional Force of indians and British from Maiden for the purpose of reducing it he resolved to Lay aside All private feeling All personal considerations in order to relieve the Post. Calling the remainder of his troops together he made them a thrilling and eloquent address pointed out the dangers they were to encounter and the glory they would acquire in the expedition. He told them plainly of the objects to be gained and the Dith cuties which would attend the Enterprise. He concluded by stating that no one was asked to go unless he was fully prepared for the consequences and that he did not wish a single Man to accompany him who was not fully prepared. Such was the effect of this Ippe in that hut one person declined accompanying him and he was escorted by his fellow soldiers to the Waters of the Miami and there discharged from All further military duty. This Man became one of the general s bitterest enemies and by such have the principal charges been fabricated from time to time against the people s candidate. Wlm Ile on the March the Genera succeeded in sending an Indian by the name of Logan into the Persona influence alone induced this Friendly Warrior to attempt this daring Enterprise. All the accounts state that the general conduct on this Marti was most admirable. He made himself personally acquainted with the officers Anc men saw that every department of the service was attended to and never suffered an hour to pass unimproved. Them it n were thoroughly drilled under his own Eye. Col. Johnson then a major was trained in the command of the mounted regiment. The order of March was such that it prevented any Surprise ind provision was made for Ever possible Case of difficulty. When within Twenty Miles of the fort the approach of a party of hostile indians and a skirmish Between them and his guides induced him to fortify his Camp for the night. It was done under his personal directions and the Wisdom of the measure was proved by the approach of several hostile parties during the night who found his position too Strong and too vigilantly watched to be assailed with any Hope of Success. The next morning Early the army moved on and by its admirable order being Tully prepared for any attack succeeded in passing safely the most dangerous places and reached the fort at Sunset almost unmolested. The Joy of the Garrison was unbounded. For twelve Days they had been closely besieged by the Savages who had burned the Village adjacent and Lead attempted As Well by stratagem As by Force to obtain Possession of the fort. From this place the Miami is navigable to the Lake and it had always been a place of importance even in the estimation of the Savages. By the masterly arrangements of general Harrison this important position was retained and the Garrison and the inhabitants of the neighbouring country who had taken shelter in the fort were saved from a bloody massacre. After sending out several expeditions against the indians which were entirely successful Gen. Harrison remained in command until the arrival of Gen. Winchester. Here the Patriot again predominated Over the Soldier instead of creating difficulties he did All he could to make the Transfer of the command easy and agreeable. The soldiers could not Bare the they idolized their commander and Felt assured of Success while following his Standard. The historian of those times says quot he had completely secured the Confidence of every Soldier in the army. He was affable and courteous in his manners and indefatigable in his attention to every Branch of business.

The three expired in May last but As the indians showed no disposition to move ii was judged expedient by the officers entrusted with their removal to give them six months longer to prepare for their journey. By the treaty the horses and cattle were to be sur rendered and paid for. Accordingly the Indian agent advertised the indians to bring them in to be sold on the Days of dec.

From these few Hasty references it i ill be seen that although new York and indeed the whole country to an immense extent still like calamities have visited other cities. It must not be supposed however where such vast numbers of houses have been Burnt As mentioned above that the loss was As great in proportion As that sustained in new York. On the contrary in Many cases it is probable the houses were Small of slight Structure and comparatively valueless. Yet some of these fires must have been As ruinous and Deso lating in their Elf cts As the one which has now filled the City and country with sadness.
