About noon on the 25th of july 1814, Gen Brown was advised by an express from Lewistown that the British were following him and were in considerable Force in Queens town and on its Heights that four of been Emy s Fleet bad arrived with reinforcements at Niagara during the preceding night and that a number of boats were in View moving up the River. Shortly after intelligence brought that the enemy were Landing at Lewistown and that the baggage and stores at Schlosser and on their Way thither were in danger of immediate capture. In order to recall the British from ibis object Brown determined to put the army in motion towards Queenstown and accordingly Gen. Scott was directed to Advance with the first brigade Towson a artillery and All the dragoons and mounted men with orders to report if the enemy appeared and if necessary to Call for assistance. On Bis arrival near the Falls Scott Learned that the enemy was in Force directly in his front a narrow piece of Woods alone intercepting his View of them. He immediately advanced upon them after despatching a messenger to general Brown with ibis intelligence. The report of the Cannon and Small arms reached general Brown before the Messen Ger and orders were immediately issued for general r Pley to March to the support of i general Scott with the second brigade and All the artillery and Brown himself repaired with All 1 to the scene of action whence he sent orders for general Porter to Advance with his volunteers. On reaching the lieu of Battle Gen. Brown found that Scott had passed Wood and engaged the enemy on the Queenstown Road and on the ground o the left of it with the ninth eleventh and Twenty second Reg Merns and to Sou s Artil Lery the Twenty fifth having been thrown to the right to be governed by circumstances the contest was close and desperate and the american troops far inferior in numbers suffered severely meanwhile major Jessup who commanded the Twenty fifth advantage of a fault committed by the British commander by leaving a Road unguarded on his himself promptly into the rear of the enemy whore he was enabled to operate with the happiest effect. The Slaughter was dreadful the enemy s line fled Down the Road at the third or fourth lire. The capture of general Riall with a Large escort of officers of rank was part of the trophies of Jessup s intrepidity and Sucill but for the impression of an unfounded report under which he unfortunately remained for a few minutes lieutenant general , the commander of the British forces would inevitably have fallen into his event which All probability have completed the disaster of the British army. Drummond was completely in Jessup s Power but being confidently in formed that the first brigade was Cut in pieces and finding himself Wilh less than two Hund red men and without any Prospect of support in the midst of an overwhelming hostile Force he thought of nothing for the moment but to make Good his Retreat and save his com Mand. Of this temporary suspense of the Advance of the american column general Drummond availed himself to make Bis escape. Among the officers captured was one of general Drummond s aides Camp who bad been despatched from the front line to order up the Reserve with a View to fall on Scott with the concentrated Force of whole army and overwhelm him at a single Effort. Nor would it have been possible to have prevented this catastrophe had the re serve arrived in time the Force with which general Scott would then have been obliged to contend being nearly quadruple that of his own. By the fortunate capture however of the British aide Camp before the comple Tion of the service on which Jie had been or dered the enemy s Reserve was not brought into action until the arrival of general hip Ley s prevented the disaster which must otherwise have ensued. Though the second brigade passed Forward with the greatest Ardour the Battle bad raged for an hour before it could arrive on the Field by which time it was nearly dark. Been Emy fell Back on its approach. In order to disengage the exhausted troops of the first brigade the fresh troops were ordered to s Scott s line and display in front a move ment which was quickly executed by Ripley. Meanwhile the enemy being reconnoitre a was found to have taken a position and and that the inn or tavern is for the accommodation of honesty Arr that the is a Man of Good repute a and is Well to with House room and Cove. Accommodate strangers and eed Beach v Burnhan j he we Carpenter. Occupied a height at the Bead of Lundy s Lane with his artillery supported by a line of in which gave him great advantage a it being the key to the whole position. To secure Victory it was necessary to carry his artillery and seize the height. For this purpose the second brigade advanced upon the Road and the first regiment of infantry which had arrived that Day and was attached to neither of the brigades was formed in a line facing the enemy on tha height with a View of drawing Bis fire and attract ing his attention As the second brigade advanced on his left Sank to carry his artillery. As soon As the first begun Felt approached its position colonel Miller was ordered Tot Advance with the Twenty first regiment and Clurry the artillery on. The height with the Bayonet the first regiment gave Way under the fire of the enemy but Miller undaunted by this occurrence advanced steadily and gallantly to Bis object and carried the Heights and Cannon in a masterly style. Ripley followed on the right with to Twenty third regiment it had some desperate fighting which caused it to falter but was promptly rallied and no. The enemy being now driven from their commanding ground the whole the volunteers and artillery and the first regiment which had been Rall were formed in line with the captured Cannon nine pieces in the rear. They were joined by major Jessup with , the regi ment that had acted with such effect in the rear of the enemy s left. In this situation the american troops withstood three distinct operate attacks of the enemy who had ral lied his broken corps and received reinforce ments. In each of them he was repulsed with great Slaughter so near being his a approach that the buttons of the men were distinctly seen through the darkness by the Sash of the muskets and Many prisoners were taken at the Point of the Bayonet principally by Porter s volunteers. During the second at tack general Scott was ordered up who had been held in Reserve with three of Hia Battal ions from the moment of Ripley s arrival on the Field. During the third Effort of the ene my the direction of Scott s column would have enabled him in a few minutes to have formed a line in the rear of the enemy s right and thus have brought him Between two fires. But a flank fire from a concealed party of the enemy falling upon the Centre of Scott s command completely frustrated this intention. His Blu Erin was severed in two one part passing to the rear the other by the the right flank of platoons towards Ripley s main line. This was the last Effort of the British to regain their position and artillery the ame rican troops being left in quiet Possession of the Fjeld. It was now nearly Midnight and generals Brown and Scott both being severely wounded and All the troops much exhausted the command was Given to general rip Ley and he was instructed to return to Camp bringing with him the wounded and the artillery. The pieces however were found in so dismantled a state and such had been the Slaughter of the horses that to remove them at that late hour was found to be impracticable. On the return of Tho troops to Camp Gen Brown sent for general Ripley and after giving him his reasons for the measure or dered him to put the troops into the Best pos sible condition to give them the refreshment to take with him Tho pickets and Camp guards and every other description of Force to put himself on th6 Field of Battle As the Day dawned and there meet and Beal the enemy if he again appeared. General Ripley has been much blamed for the non execution of this order by which Cannon again fell into the bands of the British. General Brown in his facial report says to this order he Ripley made no objection and i relied upon its execution. It was not on the part of general Ripley it is stated that his orders were in Case the enemy appeared in Force to be governed entirely by his orders therefore were executed. At Daybreak the army was arranged and the March commenced when circumstances of the most positive nature were Maje Appa rent such As must have been in View in the discretionary part of the order and in the full effect of which general Ripley commenced and effected the Retreat which after wards led him to fort Erie. The diced to less than one thousand six Hundred men were marched on the 26th by general Ripley toward the Field of Battle. Motion was commenced at Day break but difficulties incidental to the late losses prevented the the Advance before some time had been spent in re organization and arrangement. The line of March being assumed and the Chippewa crossed general Ripley sent Forward lieutenants Tappan of the Twenty third and Riddle of the fifteenth with their respective commands to reconnoitre the enemy s Posi Tion strength and movements. On Examina Tion he was found in Advance of his former position on an Eminence strongly reinforced As had been asserted by prisoners taken the preceding evening Bis flanks resting on a Wood on one Side and on the River on the other defied being turned or driven in his artillery was planted so ast of sweep the Road besides these advantages he extended a line nearly double in length to that which could be displayed by our troops. To attack with two thirds the Force of the preceding evening an enemy thus increased was an act of mad Ness that the first thought rejected. The army was kept in the Field and in motion Long enough to be assured of the strength and position of the enemy that information being confirmed there remained but one course to prevent that enemy from impeding a Retreat which bad he been vigilant he would previously have the army there fore immediately Retro add and the Retreat received Sanction of general Brown pre Vious to Bis crossing the Niagara. The american official account states their Oss in this Buttle it -17 1 372 wounded an4 return of British present an aggregate of 179, including Riall and a ther officers. The British their loss to be 84 killed 559 wounded 193 missing their loss a prisoners they elated Only at 45 major general brawn and brigadier Gene ral Scott were among the wounded of the americans and lieutenant general drum mond Aad major general Riall among those of the thus ended the Buttle of Niagara a com Bat which is entitled to a conspicuous place in the american annals from the courage of the parties the loss sustained and the Inci dents. Circumstances connected with it. Com mencing in the evening St continued till after Midnight the Uncertain Light of the Moon Ena bling each party at limes to discover the movements of its opponents while at inter Vals the whole Field was shrouded in dark Ness and the solemn Roar of the Cataract of Niagara which mingled its eternal with the groans of the wounded and the shouts Triumph added to the interest arid Sublimity of the scene. The obstinacy and displayed on both sides rendered the combat of unusual length considering the numbers engaged and produced a most sanguinary re sult. The superiority of Force was undoubtedly on the Side of the Jiri Tiah army at the commencement and was made still greater by the accession of fresh troops. The ame rican army on the Ope hand was its efforts insulated. The first brigade being nearly overpowered by the great superiority of the enemy before the arrival of the second the weight of the Battle then fell on the lat Ter. The Victory although claimed by the British belonged undoubtedly to the american army to which the occupation of the enemy s posts and the capture of Many of his chief officers and All Bis though the situation of the troop s prevented the removal of the latter justly entitled him.

Genuine philanthropy embracing Man in All Bis relations throughout the lation of existence is a much More Noble principle than even the most exalted patriotism. It overlooks minor distinctions and contemplates the human race in the relation of of the same common with similar for happiness and Sud acct to similar disappoint ments miseries and death. It prompts to comprehensive plans and vigorous self deny ing efforts to secure the highest happiness of All. If we Trace the history of Benevolence we find the most prominent characters that figure there distinguished above others not so much by superiority of intellect As by greatness of soul. For though , Wilberforce and Washington were not inferior in native Powers of mind yet it was peculiarly their enlightened enlarged Perse vering Benevolence their High regard for the rights and happiness of Man which made them truly great and which has embalmed their memories in the heart of every nation. And when it is considered that Aaron Burr or Aven bin twin Arnold had intellect which if expanded by the same Benevolence might have shone upon the nation and world with a splendor equal perhaps to that of the Wisest and the Best it is truly Mournful to think of their loss to themselves and to Man kind Many a which might have blazed on history s Page to Light this dark some hiring age is now forgotten and or damned to everlasting let the youth would not live and die uncles sing and but secure enduring Honor such a god let him not think to gain the object merely by native Energy or hard study or external advantages or intellectual superiority but renouncing selfishness let him cultivate in every movement genuine Benevolence and this of itself while it diffuses happiness and perhaps elevates Many cannot fail to quicken invigorate and expand every faculty of his soul. At the same time let such As have the training of Youthful mind Ever remember that without the moral image of god the mightiest human intellect will be nought but mightiest rebellion remorse and endless shame. Singular Baltimore Republican rotates the following singular dream Dorothea Foos aged 99 years died at her residence in Ensor Street on sat urday evening having lived to see five Gene rations.

About two years ago she accidentally fell out of bed and broke Ber hip and otherwise injured herself so that All Hopes of her recovery were Given she steadily insisted that she would get about again and not die until the path of april 1845, and singular though it May be yet such is the fact she did live until saturday the 5th of april and died on that Day.
