Gentlemen and Brother Soldiers,
THE address of )'< u:r refpe&able
corps calls for my full aflent to the pain
ful truths it contains.
At a moment the mod important to
the Union, when collected in our own
internal unanimity, we weie viewed
with envy by coufli&ing pswers, and
even rapine, overawed by firmnefs, be
gan to Men to our claims ; discoid and

men unconscious of the boon that Hea

plunge a dagger into the bosom of their
country ; but ours is the glorious ufk to
inter pufe a fhidd. Though painfulthe
taik, yet it is ours, my fcilow-foldiers,
united in one common purpose, to drive
home contusion to their hearts, who,
with polluted hands, profane the best
of constitutions : but let us hope that
Teturnnur rcafon will heal the breach,
and their complete submission ilacken
the arm of vengeance. ! I consider my
f;lf as fortunate to be at tliis time called
to the command, and feel the neareil
intereil in your military reputation :
but I was tonfeious that you knew, and
dare defend your rights; and therefore
looked for these exertions. Accept,
gentlemen, my warmest acknowledge

dated Pitt/burg, September 12.
" This instant there are recent ac
counts from Le Bceuf and Fort Fiank
lin—they grc almost certain, of a war
with the Six Nation of Indians. Eve
ry one rrprefents the conduct of the in
dividuals of them as uncommonly inso
lent and arrogant. It is said by the
man who came from Fort Franklin, that
there are twelve or fifteen Indians from
Sandufky, lying in the neighborhood of
that place, under the pretence of being
peaceable, but supposed to be waiting
the refulc of the treaty, to commence
hostilities, and to influence others to join
them. Should they go to war, prepa
rations ought to be made to support the
garrison at Le Beuf.
Extrad of a Idler from Captain Denny,
commanding at Fort Le BosuJ, dated
" On the 10th ult. one of the inha
bitants of Cuffawago was fired on by a
patty of Indians within 150 perches of
tiie house, and received three wounds,
but escaped. and is likely to recover. I
was informed of it the day following,
and received a piefiing requisition for
affidance. To prevent the settlement
breaking up, f. sent a party of twelve
men, including a non-commillioned of
ficer, with orders to afford all the assis
tance and protection they could."

" The present dilhirbanees in this
country have a good deal iubfided, but
are 'yet far from having 101 l their origi
nal spirit. Yellerday the people of the
different counties were to meet in dii
tri£ts and townships, to sign the fitbntif
fton to the laws—at this di drift it was
conducted and ended with great mode
ration : the people stlmolt all the
fribmiffion ; but in the other diftti&s
of this county, I am afraid* it hns not
terminated so favorably. In one diftriA,
the two parties, one for peace, the other
for war, separated* when the war party
appeared the most numerous, and the
peace party were intimidated from sign
ing. Almofl all the leaders in exciting
the prcfent difturbimces are now for'
Deace and fubmiiliou to the laws, but
they have no longer influence when they
become peaceable bitizens, which efta
bWhes a melancholy truth, that men
can raise an infurredtion when they can>-
not conduct it."

In the night 'of the eighth instant a
pole was err«fted in the public fqtiare
of this town with Liberty and no Ex
cise, 0 Whijkey, inferibed thereon. On
the morning following a few of the
friends to good government, met and
cut it down, which caused a great agi
tation. And runners were difpatchtd
in every diftrift to inflame the minds of
the country people, and persuade thetai
to affiil in putting up a second pole. j
On Thursday in the afternoon a
number* perhaps two hundred, of the
people from the .country} camc in, fotne
whh fire arms, and erected a much larger
pole, with Liberty and Equality thereon :
very few men of property appeared a
mong them. Our treasurer was a very
bnfy body in this bul'mel's, making use
of all his frnall abilities to encreafe the
flame, and threw out money to tile in

1 i'he people who appeared on Thurs
day seemed to shun the conversation of
any person who they thought was op
posed to their proceeding, and it was
thought advifeable to fay but little to
them, as we could not tell how far the
inflammation had spread through the
Gount'-y. A guard has pat ruled the
streets every night since, to take care of
the pole, or to prevent the peaceable
inhabitants from sleeping by the firing
of guns, arid other noise which has been
hard to bear, and persons in pursuit of
their bulinefs have been flopped at the
point of the bayonent and money ex
torted from them to procure Whiikey.
