House, George-Town, February 13, 1813.
schooner Ph¤nix, Narbourn, five days from Barbados, arrived yesterday.
The Papers by the Ph¤nix are to the 6th
instant. They communicate no European intelligence; but their domestic news
will be found below, under its appropriate head.
American intelligence received, by the way of Barbados, is of a truly
gratifying nature. Smith, the third Invader of Canada, and the forlorn hope of
the War Party, is said to have followed the example of his predecessors. This
welcome communication has approached us in the shape of a Letter from
Canandaigua - and of which the following is a copy:
note: news of the American campaign against Canada not transcribed.]
the head of American Intelligence will be found, a somewhat curious account of
the proceedings of the Army, since the Declaration of War, and which has been
extracted from one of their Papers. It is called, The Adventures of a Year.
February 6. - The ships Tiger and
Maxwell, from hence for Liverpool, have been particularly successful in
prosecuting their voyage, having captured, in the course of thirteen days after
leaving this anchorage, three American vessels, two of which have safely
arrived here, and the other was in company with them. Their last prize, which
anchored in this Bay on Thursday, is the schooner Rising States, from Salem
bound for St. Jago in the Island of Cuba, with 780 boxes of fish, besides some
lumber, a parcel of shooks and wood hoops, and was taken on the 24th ult. in
Lat. 27 30. Long. 62. then fourteen days from the port of her departure. By
this vessel we learn, that Commodore Rodgers, in the President, 44, with the
Congress frigate and Argus brig, had returned to Boston on the 2d of that
month, but without having captured any other vessels during their cruise than
the Swallow Packet, and the South Sea-man that formed one of a convoy under the
Galatea, which we have before stated. This squadron had commenced refitting;
and the United States and Macedonian (late British), were fitting at New-York,
from whence it was supposed they would put to sea about the middle of last
month. The Constitution, Chesapeake, Essex, and Hornet, had sailed, but not in
company, the successes of theirs over two of our frigates having inspired them
with confidence to hazard the combat singly.
THE ADVENTURES OF A YEAR.
Gen. Harrison marched 200 miles with an
army to see an infatuated Prophet - encamped as the Prophet directed. Prophet
saw him next morning - Harrison lost 400 choice men in the interview - Prophet
absconded - Harrison burnt the Prophet's corn!
issued a lock-down Proclamation to the affrighted Canadians - took Sandwich - planted
the American Eagle - poor Canadians flocked to it - several rencounters [sic], but no
victory. Hull, in want of ammunition and provisions, left Sandwich - Canadians
in distress - gave up Detroit and the American army, arms, and stores, with the
Michigan Territory. Government did every thing they could, but Hull was a
traitor or a coward - durst not fight. Cass was brave - he furthored [sic] an
insurrection; genuine follower of Bonaparte: - Superiors must yield to force!
Van Rensellaer attacked Queenstown - pushed the enemy - fought well - won the
battle - enemy's reinforcements arrived - Militia read the Constitution -
refused to cross - the victors fled - boatmen run away - all was lost - all
surrendered, but were soon paroled.
Tupper's army of mounted men in the west returned, most of them alive, but
quite unsuccessful - all dismissed.
embarrassed for a few trifling articles, such as provisions, powder, bullets,
and well-made rifles.
Hopkins sent on an expedition with mounted riflemen - crossed the Wabash -
steered for the Kickapoo and Peoria villages - got lost in the woods - guides
took him a wrong route - lodged in a Prairie - Indians set it on fire - like to
have been all consumed - visited with the diarrh¤a - left many things untold
which ought to be known - safely at home.
Dearborn spent the summer at Boston and Greenbush, sometimes at balls! - Late
in the fall ordered all the regulars to Plattsburg - called for 2000 Militia
from Vermont, some from New-York - all encamped - much blustering - Bloomfield
in command - some shot, some drowned, some flogged, and some had both ears cut
off - Dearborn arrived in great haste, covered with laurel leaves! - called for
pikes - ordered all the troops to march 30 miles to Champlain woods, quick time
- left their tents all standing - terrible snow storm - three tentless nights -
cooled their courage - saw the line, frightful things beyond it - ordered for
winter quarters - Burlington, Greenbush, and Pittsfield, finished the campaign.
- Thus endeth the first lesson.
gasconading Gen. Smyth, and his rantical, bombastical, nonsensical, and abusive
Proclamations, are yet in the full tide of successful experiment. - What
wonderful effects they may produce, is yet uncertain, but we are enduced to
believe that Canada will not be taken this winter.
Millions more to be borrowed, says Mr. Gallatin, besides robbing the merchants
of all the profits of their late importations. 'Never more prosperous!'
commencement of the First Grand Session of the Court of Justice for the present
year, which was to have taken place on Monday next, is postponed until the
First of March.
Royal Battalion of Demerary Militia paraded yesterday. Lieutenant-Colonel Otto,
Adjutant-General Brandt, and Major Tulloh, were on the ground.
Excellency Robert Gordon resumed the government of Berbice, on the 1st instant.
T. C. Emery, Esq. is to continue the exercise of the secretarial functions.
Backer, Esqr. Professor of Translation and Book-keeping, has received the Court
of Policy's permission to practise, in Demerary and its Dependencies. - See the
this Life - On the 29th ultimo, on Tiger-Island, Essequebo - Mr. D. Broadhead,
Junr. Also, on Sunday last at Plantation Unity - Mr. Robert Williamson.
remains of the unfortunate Capt. Langley, of the brig Thomas, were interred
yesterday, at Plantation Klyn Poederoyen. Of the circumstances, attending this
well-known and respected commander's loss of life, the following are the only
particulars we have yet received: - On Tuesday last, in the company of Mr.
Dobbrauski, of America-Street, and two lads of the brig, he went up the river,
and was not heard of until Thursday-night; when his body was discovered near the
plantation where it is now deposited. The fate of his companions is not certain
- little hope, however, can be entertained of their safety.
melancholy catastrophe just mentioned, is supposed to have been caused by one
of those violent and sudden squalls, so frequent here; and the rapid and
powerful nature of our river's current. Circumstances, to which numbers have
fallen victim; and yet, strange as it may appear, they are seldom uppermost in
the recollection of the navigator. On the contrary, for the sake of dispatch,
safety is too often unheeded - skiffs, of the most diminutive size, being often
seen labouring under sails of a surprising magnitude. And such we understand,
was the case in the present instance.
writing the above, we understand, that all the other bodies have been found
near Hobabo Creek.
Intelligence. - On the 15th instant there will be a grand and visible Eclipse
of the Moon. It is calculated to begin at eighteen minutes past three in the
morning; and its middle will be at forty-four past four; and the end of the
Eclipse, at ten past six. The Sun will rise at six minutes past six; and the
Moon will set four minutes after the Eclipse ends. - They may both be seen
above the horizon at four minutes past six.
