Yet some Young of impulsive temperament and excited by the contest rushed unrestrained Day with their commands upon the foe and drove him with precipitation some distance from the main body and had occasion to Rue their temerity. The fight lasted about two hours and Many realized there for the first time the Dan Gers and horrors of a nocturnal engagement in such a night As that was. The firing Cea sed and the enemy withdrew and was again quiet but the elements. The attack was renewed an hour or so after and continued about three fourths of an with no better Success than again the foe withdrew. It was now past Midnight arid col. Pike after waiting some time for another demonstration from him ordered the necessary sentinels to be posted and the Resi due of his command to seek what repose they could obtain upon their arms until morning. Even the fitful slumbers of such a situation were grateful and refreshing to the wearied and exhausted Soldier. Col. Pike made no attempt to sleep that night. After the hum and casual talk of the Little Encampment had died away into silence col. Pike with one or two favorite subordinates Drew up to a half smothered fire the smoke of which eddying about in circles for a few minutes Rose gradually in spiral columns i from the hollow until stricken forcibly and borne off by the upper current which had been blow ing a Gale but was now lulling to a gentle Breeze.

The scene was Well suited to the contemplative and sublimated soul of Pike. It was a moment for Calm and solemn reflection and musing and he seemed to realize All its Peculiar and influences. He would speak for some time in a glowing and elevated Strain of moralizing then pause awhile and appear to be wrapped in profound thin pour fourth another continuous Strain of just sentiment and Sublime eloquence Seldom the occasional interruptions from the wind which at Brief intervals Rose and fell and sent its moaning voice through the bending tree tops was a circumstance rather in Cor Respondence and Harmony with the others and instead of diminishing seemed to lend additional interest and solemnity to the he dwelt on the relative duties of Man As a member of society in different situations at considerable length and All his remarks were pertinent and Well applied and Many of them forcible and thrilling.

The country was much themes and he spoke with Peculiar Force and feeling of the duty of dying for one s coun try in defence of a just and righteous cause and of the rewards that must be in re serve for All such beyond the grave.

He repeated some poetical effusions tasteful and appropriate to the of with patriotic sentiment and Rich in Sublime and original and thus were spent four or five of the last hours of that eventful night. When Day Light appeared no enemy was to be seen. A. Recon loitering party was sent but soon returned without bringing any intelligence of him. The line of March was formed in a Short time after and we moved in a circuitous route on our return with a View to As certain the position the enemy than held but the main army was not to be discovered by our scouts. A body of troops sent out to intercept us was met about mid Day and a Sharp conflict but did not continue Long the British being forced to yield the ground with the loss of several men in killed wounded and prisoners. We Learned afterwards that a destruction of life on the part of the enemy had occurred in the night Battle than was apprehended by us at and further that a serious difficulty had Arisen Between the officers of the newly arrived troops and those who had been on the station some time about seniority and the right to command. They had separated in consequence and refused to Coop Erate. The indians too had become dissatisfied. And these were some of the reasons i Why we did not.
