for bravery an(coolness in defending Fort Harri

Brevet-Major in consequence. In the course of the
war he further distinguished himself. When it
ended, being reduced to the rank of; Captain on ac.-
-count of the general redaction of the army. he re
signed and went back to his Carat. He was reinsta
ted a. Majnr in 1816. and commanded for two years

he was ordered to Florida. whereon Dec.2s, 1837.
he fought. the battle of Okechohee, one of the most
memorable in the annals of oar Indian hostilities,
which virtually put an end to the war; for this he
received the brevet rank of Brigadier General. He
remained in Florida till .1840, when he took cow
mend of the first department of the, Army in the
South-West, his headquarters being at Fort Gibson.

the beginning of August had taken up his position
at Corpns Christi. On March 8. 1846. in oomph
anee with the orders of President Polk• he began ti
"march on the Rio Grande. The events which fol
lowed this step are too crellknewn to require recapitn.

May S. 1846. that of Resaca de la Palma the next
day. March 8,1846. in compliance with the orders
of President Polk. he began to march on the Rio

General by brevet, and on June 29 was promoted to
lull rank. The attack on Monterey began Sept.
21, and was closed by the capitulation on the 24th.
His great and final Nettle of Buena Vie:areas fought

ed great soundness of judgment, readiness of mind
fertility of resources. mastry of the art of war, power
of inspiring his sabordinates*not only with affec
tion for his person. but with cr..nfidence in his skill
and fortunes, as well as constant humanity toward
the vanquished, and a frank dignity which won the
regard of the hostile people among whom he had to
command an invading army, somewhat incongru

The House of Representatives en Monday last,
adopted the resolutions of the Galrhin Investigate

an onjnst one, and explicitly declaring the payment
of the interest to haie been contrary to both law
and precedent and altogether beyond tne authority
of the Secretary of the Treasury. Though the
Secretary of War is not named in the resolutions,
they bear even more severely upon him than upon
Mr. Meredith. This is evinced by the futile at.
tempt made on Ssinolay by• Mr. Toombs to append
another resolution expressly exonerating Mr. Craw.
lord from blame, and by the *Minn of the House
in connection therewith. Mr. Toombe's motion
was by a large majority amended so as to condemn

of his usefulness.
During this struggle, a most bitter and exciting
one, the Bradford Reporter has represented the
