Andrew Jackson. By the president John Forsyth Secretary of state. Major Croghan s statement of the Battle of fort Stephenson. Much misrepresentation having gone Forth in relation to the circumstances attending the attack and defence of fort Stephenson we deem it proper to publish tit statement of major Croglin himself in be Ferencz to that a Flidr and Abo that of governor Cass now Secretary of War and that the censures which have been cast upon Gen. Harrison havea Riseri from the want of information we doubt not but that it will give pleasure to those who have been most Active in circulating those censures to be enabled to do Justice to Itiat Patriot and Veteran. At any rate the Public will perceive from the following statements that there exists not the least ground Loi the abuse we iii has been heaped upon general Harri Soti by heated and interested Gazette to the editor of the Scioto Gazette. Lower Sandusky aug. 27, 1813. Extract of a letter from major Croghan to his friends at Seneca town. "1 have wit i much regret seen in some of the Public prints such misrepresentations respecting my refusal to evacuate this Post As Are calculated not Only to injure me in the estimation of miu tary men but also to excite unfavourable impressions As to the propriety of general Harrison s conduct relative to this of air. The first Given Viz that if i discovered the approach of a Large Force by water presuming that they would bring heavy artillery time enough to effect a Retreat. I must do so but if i could not Retreat with safety to defend the fort to the last extremity a Day or two before the enemy appeared before fort Meigs the general had a it Bonnoit red the surrounding ground and being informed that the Hill on the opposite Side of Sandus completely commanded the fort 1 offered to undertake with the troops under my command to remove it to that Side. The general upon reflection thought it Best not to attempt it As he believed that if the enemy a gain appeared on this Side of the Lake it would be before the works were finished. It is useless to disguise the fact that this fort is commanded by the Points of High ground around it a single stroke of the Eye made this Clear to me tie first time 1 had occasion to examine the neighbourhood with the View of discovering the relative strength and weakness of the place. It would be insincere to say that i am not flattered by the Many handsome Chintis which have been said about the defence which was made by the troops under my command a but 1 desire no plaudits which Are bestowed upon me at the expense of Gen. Harrison. 1 have at All times enjoyed his Confidence so far As my rank entitled me to it and on proper occasions received his a tired attention. 1 live Felt the warmest attachment for him As a Man and my Confidence in him As an Aole commander remains unshaken. 1 feel every Assurance that he will at All times do me ample Justice and nothing could give me More pain than to see his enemies size upon the occasion to Deal out their unfriendly feelings and acrimonious dislike and so Long As he continues As in my opinion he has hitherto done to make the Wisest arrangements and most judicious disposition which the forces under his command will justify i shall not hesitate to unite with the army in bestowing upon Hini that Confidence which he so richly merits and which has on no occasion been withheld. Your Friend Geo. Croghan. Maj. 17th inf. Commanding lower Sandusky Pertev Feuce a there was no remarkable in the character of Timour thao his Axle Ordinary perseverance. No difficulties Ever led him to recede Frow what be Hail once undertaken and he often persisted in Hii efforts under circumstances which led ail around him to desp lir. On such occasions he used to relate to his friends an anecdote of his Early life. Quot i was forced to take shelter from my enemies in a ruined building where i sat alone Many hours. Desiring to divert my mind from my hopeless condition i fixed my eyes on an ant that was carrying a Grain of Corn larger than itself up a High Wall. Numbered the efforts it made to accomplish this object. The Grain fell sixty nine times to the ground but the insect per Evered and the Seventieth time it reached the top. This sight gave me Coli age at the moment and i never forgot the s Persia. Now therefore he it known that i Andrew Jackson president of the United states of America having seen and considered the said treaty do in pursuance of the advice and consent of the Senate As expressed in their Resolution of the twentieth Day of May one thousand eight curd red and thirty six accept ratify and confirm the same with the a exception of the fourth article As excepted in the Afore aai i Resolution of the Senate which fourth article is As follows quot Art. 6. Whereas Henry Ossum has lived Many years on the lands of the above named chief and his band has furnished them with provisions and blankets when they were poor and destitute has made valuable improvements on said land and whereas the said chief and his band acknowledge themselves to be justly indebted to the said Henry Ossum in the sum of three thousand dollars it is hereby stipulated that from the cession a Foresaid a reservation of two of the above four sections is made for Henry Ossum to be patented to him by the United states the said Reserve to include possums improvement on a which he now lives and Mes Quaw Buck s Village. If this article shall be ratified to the president and Senate of the United states then twelve Hundred and eighty dollars of the above consideration shall be Withfield from the acre said chief and his band in the payment for the cession aforesaid but if this article of the trea Bis x Murk her x Mark Wauke a j Vaw was to Queh it widow of Coos be Shaw Gen his x Mark Mes Quaw his x Mark pah Siss his x Mark she a be pee.

Now it known that i Andrew Jackson president of the United states of a Merica Heving seen and considered the said treaty do in pursuance of the advice and consent of the Senate As expressed in their of the twentieth Day of May one thou Sand eight Hundred and thirty six accept Rati by and confirm tie same with the exception of the fourth article As excepted in the aforesaid Resolution of the Senate which fourth article is As follows Art. 0. Whereas the above named chief amp his band have sold to Peter Warner one half Section of the said land and have n Cei Ved in pament to Hereof two Hundred dollars and said Farner s note for two Hundred dollars and whereas tie said Warner has expended in improvements on the said land about Eig it Hundred dollars and has a Mill almost ready to go into operation therefore it is the particular request of the aforesaid chief and his band that to e deed which they have made and signed to Peter Tarner for said half Section of land his character As a military Man is too Well l Stai listed to need my approbation or support. But his Public services entitle him at least to common Justice this affix air does not furnish causes of reproach. If Public opinion has been hastily misled respecting his late conduct it will require but a moment s Cool dispassionate Leeling to convince them of its propriety. The measures recently adopted by him so far from deserving censure Are the clearest proof of his keen penetration and Able Genera ship. It is True that 1 did not proceed immediately to execute Hii order to evacuate this Post Bui this disobedience was not is some folks would wish to believe tie result of a fixed determination to maintain the Post contrary to his most positive orders As will appear from the following detail which is Given to explain my conduct about 10 o clock on the morning of the 30th Ultimo a letter from the adjutant Gens Ollice cited Seneca town july 29th, 1813 was handed me by or. Onner ordering me to abandon this Post and Burn it and Retreat. That night to head quarters. On the reception o the letter 1 called a Council of officers in Wirich it was determined not to abandon the place at least till the further a Leisure of the general should be known As it was to bought an attempt to Retreat in the open Day Iti the face of a Superior Force of the enemy would be More hazardous than to remain in the fort under All its disadvantages. 1 therefore wrote a letter to the general couched m such terms As j thought were calculated to deceive the enemy Sii Ould it fall into his hands which thought More than probable As Well As to inform the general should it be so fortunate Aslo reach Liun that 1 would wait to hear from Hini before 1 Sii Ould proceed to execute his orders. This letter contrary to my expectations was received by the general who not knowing Liat terms urged me to write in a tone so decisive concluded very rationally thai the manner of it was demonstrative of a positive determination to Gisob it y his orders under any circumstances. 1 was therefore suspended from the command of the fort and ordered to head quarters but on explaining to the general my reasons for not executing his order and my object in using the style 1 had done he was so perfectly satisfied with the explanation that 1 was immediately reinstated in the command. It will be recollected that the order above alluded to was written on the night previous to my receiving it had it been delivered to me As was intended that night 1 should have obeyed it without hesitation its not reaching me in time was the Only reason which induced me to consult my officers on the propriety of waiting the general s further order. It has been stated also that upon my representations of my ability to maintain this Post the general altered his determination to abandon it. This is incorrect. No such representation was made. And the last order 1 received from the general was precisely the same As the great Asiatic conqueror com Only Lin own by the name of Tamerlane.
