Court of lnqnii l !/>
' x ' (Concluded.)
N. B. It will be seen that these remark's
arc addressed to the Court pf Inquiry, for
which they were intended when written; but
the court declined to receive them or to hear
a verbal defence, as also, the court refused
to let them : accompany the proceedings,
consequently I ask' the favor of Major Ar
mor to receive them and to cause them to
accompany the proceedings, which ho was
good enough to do. . \V. F.
Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Court :
It certainly is- the prlvilegc and doty of
every citizen, and more particularly every
officer, to preserve untarnished that which
is the boast of an American, viz: his honor
and standing in society, and in the corps in
which he serves: had not this been fully and
sensibly impressed on my mind, you certain
ly would; not have had the labor of this in
quiry. ...But’the testimony discloses the im
portant facts, that from'the year 1812 up
until the winter of 18S8 and 1839, while in
various'situations both in the army of the
United States & tire Volunteer cprps, every
duty assigned me has been performed with
fidelity and with that promptness necessary
to the faithful execution of a soldier’s trust;
and how for the ftrstlimc in my life', I have
been told that it was for the want of confi
dence I have been passed by in military de
tail;' and' that charge made not through the
legitimate .channel in which all charges
should be performed, but from the idle rii
mor of political opponents. Witness after
witness has. UCmi called before you, aqd not
>onc single act liaa bceh proven against nic
to impair -my standing as an officer. The
whole charges against me seem to have o
riginated in the nervous and excited ima
gination of the Major General, instigatedby
.persona, politically opposed to the. actions of
a certain cOtnmittee of safety,-so charitably
termed by the Major General “a traitorous
body.” ;lt appears from the tcstimony. that
1 have been charged with every thing repre
sented to you. at the first session of this
court, viz: that I had beep charged With be
ing guilty of joinings mob some time in De
cember last ;atHamsburg, and . that I was
■ Otherwise engaged inriotoUs conduct intend
monwealth , of Pennsylvania, and that in
consequence .thereof, three companies of the
Battalidnl.haVc the honor to cotnmand, were
Saraded and marched Odt of the limits of the
lattalion without myAgency, I being then
in tlie command Of that Battalion and per
sonally present. Now not one word has
been proven to support their charges, and I
defy the world to prove,them.true’.
Some of the witnesses speak Of the exist
ence of a mob at Harrisburg in the early part
of December last. Whether there was a
mob of not is a matter of opinion depending
on thepolitical principles of the witness; but
if there was a mob, the; testimony clears me
of anyagency in it, nor was I engaged in
any riotous or other disorderly conduct.—
The Major General admits this'himself;,but
oh,! he says,.! was O'member of the commit
tee of safety; so I ’ was, and here was the
whole of. my offensive conduct. Hence tlieJ
charge that I belonged to a. mob, and this is j
the only fact that the-Major General andthe
other witnesses, laboring under excited po
litical feelings and party bias, have-been a
ble to prove; and that too I never denied,
no—-on the contrary, I that I-.was
a member of that committee. All other tes
timony, except that Which is highly compli
mentary, consists of idle rumors & dreams.
But the-Major General says that Committee
was' “a traitorous body}” where is the evi- The most ot theif sayings and
doings are 'before you jn evidence, and the
whole, as well ns the iniquitous acts of the
last State administration, 7 ' ate before the
world and will be a matter for the historian.
I dread not their decision nor that of poster
ity,, with regard to tlie character that will be
awarded to that committee. The’design of
the committee of safely, I assert, was patri
otic, not/traitorousi It was to preOent trea
sorii This I well know; and so.does alf the
thembers thereof, and so docs a majority of
the good people of this commonwealth; and
surely ;toeif Opinion, is entitled to as much
credit, if hot more; than the -Major General
liiipselfi...; . ■
The Major-General asserts that there was
an; attempt by“a ;iw Ttion of it parly” to ob
tain: what they called theif rights by revolu
tion and violence.- This, is emphatically
trpe ; _The| late commander, in chief .and a
portion of h isi political - friends and: advisers
did attempt to establish what they’ Called
their rights by revolution, and violence;, 1
attfcihpt .to trample oh the con
stitution and laws,’ The committee of safe
ty wasorganizedto sustain the constitution
andthclawsj. Their designs and intentions
were to give th'feir fellow citizens throughout
the State, notice of ..the treasonable’conduct
of: ffa portion v of 'd party ” ;: How fair the
committee’ was.’instrumental in preventing
“a.portion<of dipdrtyft front trampling on
the constitationandlaits’isfof toe world to
judge, 1 .:- Suffice it to saythat “dportionof u
party ” withdtoTcdffimabdbrdn chief. Major
Brigadiet; Generals; & aflvousahd
Volunteers; had; to sditehdorto the dmnip-";
otent power of opinibn.L j.The port
which toe committee acted; was entirely pa
cific and patriotic. 1-,-as a member of that
,body, did dothing id disqualify toe;froin toe
exercise of command. Tlibre is I
dence that I world have disobeyed bfoers; |
but, had 1 been in the execution, of hiy com- |
mand, had a certain stateof; things arisen, I
had the commander ilk chief; through his I
Major, General, to gramy and sjlh'Serve the i
design oV".a portion a/aparty” attempted i
to trample bn the constitution aridlawS, and i
shed the blood of his fellow citizens, and i
that the execution of his orders were neces- -
saty to accomplish that object, a- sulcpln 1
question would "have presented itself to me
and- other officers ana soldiers, how far. we
were hburid to obey such orders.., Histoi-y,
in the language of a distinguished statesman,
points but the part which the patriot sojdicr
ought to act under sUch circumstances. But
again, if my connection with the committee
of safety disqualified mo from the .exercise
of my command in the opinion, of the coin
riVdriacr'jp-'chief arid thcMajor Generalfivtly"
was I not pul under hrrest rind a Cofirt mar
tial ordered to try me? When rumor with
her slanderous tongue, and tlie excited im
agination of my superior in command; sus
pected my patriotisrii and.doubted my obe- ,
orders, then,- according to-every
principle of military law and discipline, they
ought to have given me a hearing in order
that the trutli might appear. But this did
not suit “a portion of a party ” Who Wanted
to obtain what they called..their rights by
revolution 7 and violence. They knew full
well that on on investigation, that body
termed "traitoroua ,, by the Major General
would liave.b'ccn proyed to the world a pa
triotic .instrument to resist'tyranny and the
designs of traitorous occupants u nworthy the
chief places in-the State. I certainly am at
-a -losS ,to know any warrant, nor has any
been shown, for detailing troops by a com
mander in chief through a Major General,
passing by the officer jn command, of the
Regiment or Battalion to Which Companies
belong, when that officer was present and iq
command of the Regiment or Battalion. I
concede the right of Captains as such over
their companies, but.l deny the justice or
. tlie rights of a superior officer detailing troops
- in the manner General'Alexander has-dorie
in-the case I complain of, and I,feel assured
you will concur with me in saying, thalgGe
• neral Alexander knew at the time his'con
duct was not that .usual between gentlemen
> anil officers acquainted witlKtheir duty and
their rights as Soldiers & gentlemen;. Hence
- his disposition, as appears by his own testi
> rriony, toplace the disrespect shown to me
■ on the ground of misconduct' in liny being
connected'wmvtne~cotmTrittctr or safety.—
1 The undeviating rule between officers corn
s' manding and their subalterns, i& correctly
i laid down by Major Armor, to whose testi
■ riiony I refer yon..
i The whole testimohy most clearly shows,
• that so Ion» as the witnesses confined tliem
> selves to_ facts within their own knowledge
t not one single thing is proven against- me'.—
No, oh the contrary, highly Complimentary.
■ Even General A., who appears to be my ac
t cuser, and who appears to be so desirous for
i a pretext for his conduct, is J ,cotripellcd to
; say in his testimony (sec theorist of it) that
- he never knew any thing himself calculated
: to injure my standing as an officer and a
soldier, or that would Warrant his treatment
■to me.' He attempts'to justify his conduct
■ because GoVv R;- and himself agreed that 1
was not a fit person; to comriiaml trbops .ta
-1 ken to Harrisburg for the purpose they were
“ intended. Perhaps it was so: because, had
Gov. R. or any body else ordered 'me to dp
1 an act in violation of the laws anil the con
stitution, they might have found that'l was
not tlie man to do so, and they perhaps might
have been-the first putin custody;lt ap-1
pears that General A. got his order front,the
Governor for the companies.ihus designated;
yet that was no justification for his passing
me and in his orderingthcCaptains.-becausc
I was present in Carlisle When the orders
were given and. General. A: Knew it because
he saw me Soon aften Still he had the hard
ihood although pale and troubling, to speak
to me, :but would not even tell mewhat was
going on; although, we had been, associates
for years as military mepi AVas this

al of.,a soldier? ' No, I think not.; .Had I
merited-fas h'e.tvbtild have you belifete) the
treatment I received, it was his duty to have
arrested m£; arid .then he-inighthave.liad the
way clear to reap laurels in the cause unop
posed, bV my mighty power-as. a, triilitary
man." The General in liis testimony denies
that he dictated to Gov: Ritner in making
thh aelettioh of three companies andthen in
the veiy next sentence gives liis reasons for
speaking of them’to the Governor. ■ - Aston
ishing! How-did the Governor-know any
thing about the;c.otnpanies in the Battalion?
I doubt vrheth'er he knew any. companies that
were attached to it, until about , that time—
ffiefi tfrlid informed him but General Alex
ander? ’ In fact,.„l believe General A. was
fhe. pririie mover of the Hiijitary being taken
to Harrisburg at rill.- Another antOhg the ma
ny inconsistencies I see-, in the General’s tes
timony, is the,attempt he madc to prove [>y a
half gheet of the Keystone that I was pres-,
erit at a'meeting of thfe Committee of. safety

a tAet of S6m£ Importance
In, the year 183 5 or 6; I purchased a small
parcel of cocoons; which were kept through
the summer and winter foilewing, to the next
season, about a.year; I supposed thechrysalis
of each had been stifled,.but to my astonish
ment, from tliattcry parcel, a miller, cainc
out from one of the cocoons the nest, year.
And now the present year, 1838,' aftof the
firft crop <lf wbrins in succession-hUd spun
their cocoons, a small number of eggsTiad
been kept in a tin pail, suspended'ifi a well’
so as to rest Upon the water; at the side of
the pitmp, the top of the pail secured by a
tin covpr and cloth saturated .with becs ; wax
and tallow; and thiis kept, s 8 as to bring for
ward (be worms in .pat-cels’, as the foliage
should increase, gnd the shelves or hurdles
be emptied to bring out another parcel .for
hatching: Some of these eggs were hatched
and sjiun fheif Cocdonsin September, so few
in nifmber, however/’that they were left in
the cocoonery until within a few days, when,
it was discovered that the millets were com
ing out even as lateaS the 16th bf November,
1838, having rehiaihed in • the cocoonery a
bout eight weeks beforcany symptomVof the
appearance of a miller, and the cocoons havs

eggs;. Some few days bast the weather has,

keeping eggs lias succeeded better, even than

not only to keep back 'the hatcjiipg-of.cggs,'
