A LETTER FROM THE HON. COLONEL BOUQUET, TO
Who. ALLEN, ESQ CHIEF JUSTIOE OF PENN
"Foit Duquesne 25th November, 1758.
“Dear Sir—l take, with great pleasure, this
first opportunity of informing you of the.reduc
ti on of this important place; pereuatled, that
the success of his Majesty's arms on this side'
will give you a groat satisfaction, and reward
you for all the pains you have taken for the dif
ficult supply of this army
We marched from Loyal Hannon with twenty
five hundred picked men, without tents or bag
gage, and a light train Af .artilery, in the expecr
tation of meeting the enemies,.and determining,
by a battle, who should possess this country.—
The distance is abOut fifty miles, which we
marched in five days,.a great diligence oonsider
ing the season—the uncertainty of the roads
entirely unknown, and the difficulty of making
them practicable far the'at:tillery.
"The 23d we took ;post at twelve miles from
4nce, and halted the 54,h. for intelligence. In
the evening our Indians reported that they had
discOVered a very thick smoke from the fort, ex
tending in the bottom along the Ohio. A few
hours after, they sent word that the enemies had
abandoned their.fort, after having burnt every-
"We marched this morning, and found the
report true They have blown up and destroyed
all their fortifications, houses, ovens and maga
zines ; all their Indian goods were burnt in the
stores, which seems to have been very consider
"They seem to have been about four hundred
men ; part have gone down the Ohio ; one hun
dred by land, supposed to Presque-Isle, and two
hundred with the Governor, M. de Lignery, to
Venango, where, he told the Indians, he intended
to stay this winter, with an intention to dislodge
us in the spring. We would soon make him
shift his quarters, had we only provisions, but we
are scarcely able to maintain oureelves a few
days here to'treat with the neighboringing Indi
ans who are summoned to meet us. The destruc
tion of the fort, the want of victuals, and the
impossibility of being supplied in time, at this
distance and season of the year, obliges us to
go back and'leave a small detachment of two hun
dred men only, by way of keeping possession of
"This successful expedition can be of great
service to the provinces, provided they will im
prey% and support it. It is now the time to take
vigorous measures to secure this conquest ; and
unless Virginia and Pennsyluania can agree up-'
on an immediate assistance, all our pains and ad
vantages will be lost.
"Au immediate supply of provisions, clothing
aLd necessaries, should at any rate be eent up
for the support of the troops; and measures
taken for the formation of magazines on the
frontiers, (Raystowu and Cumberland,) for the
supply of an army to act early in the spring.
"The succors and directions from England
would be too late, and if the colonise do not ex
, ert themselves to the utmost of their power, I
am afraid they will have occasion to repent it.
"It diau goods ought to be provided without
, delay, with a Commissary, or proper person to
dispose of them, either for trade or presents, as
' our new friends cannot remain long.unprovided,
and would soon return to the French, were we to
lit them be in cant. Some artificers are also
greatly wanted, such as carpenters, smiths, ma
sons, gun-smiths, and chiefly ehip-builders, &0.,
"A number of cows and bulls, mares and stal
lions, garden seed, corn, &el. Every moment is
precious, and the laud so rich, and the pastures
so abundant that everything would thrive, and
the garrison would boon be able to support itself.
"Fish nets and hooks would likewise be of
groat use for people reduced to salt meat; and
some rioe, barley, &e., to prevent the scurvy
among the men.
"I enter into all these details with you, be•
cause I think the safety of this post depends up
on it, and in the plenty you are used to live,
they would not so readily occur to you, as to us
who are deficient of every necessary ofaife.—
Could you diffuse into the Assembly the public
spirit that directs ail your actions, I would be
very easy about the consequences; but I know
the disposition of the people in general, always
iudolent and ready to fall asleep- on the smallest
gleam of ease and quiet; you must rouse them,
and make them sensible that this business is - but
half done. We have acted our part, let you act
yours. It is now in your power to enjoy in
peace and quietness your lands and possessions,
if you will only lay unt some money, which may
save you ten times more, and the lives of thous
ands of your poor inhabitants.
"After God, the success of this expedition is
entirely due to >the General, who by bringing
ni , eut the treaty with the Indians at Easton, has
struck the blow which has knocked the French
on the head: in temporizing wisely to expect the
effects of that treaty ; in securing all his posts,
awl giving nothing to chance ; and not yielding
to the urging instances fur taking Braddook's
road, wince would have been our destruction.—
In all those measures, I say, he has shown the
g, eatest prudence, firmness and ability. No
body is better informed of the numberless diffio
uittes he bad to surmount, than I am, who had
.:11 opportunity to see every step that was taken
from the beginning, and every obstruction that
was thrown in the way. 1 wish the nation may
.ue as sensible of his service as he really de
serves, and give him the only reward that can
flatter him, toe pleasure of seeing them pleased
"I expect the satisfaction to see you this win
ter, and to talk more at large upon the subject.
"I beg you will present my compliments to
Nine. Allen, and believe me, with great truth,
Lapt. Stark Starling.

A LETTER YRODI CAPTAIN HASLET TO THE REV.
" Fort Dugnettne, November 26,1768.
R. D Sir—l have now the pleasure to write
you from the ruins of the fort. On the 24th, at
Light, we were informed by one of our Indian
t.e , uts, that hb had discovered a cloud of smoke
ab .v,) the place, and soon after another came in
jib certain intelligence, that it was burnt and
thandoned by the enemy. We were then sheet
fifteen miles from it; a troop of horse was sent
br ward immediately to extinguish the burning,
and the' whole army followed:' We arrived at 6
o'clock last night, and found it in a greatmeas
are destroyed. There are two forts, about. two
hundred yards distant,the one built with immense
labor, small, bit a great deal of very strong work
collected into-very little room, and stands on the
point of a narrow neck of land at the confluence
of the two rivers. 'Tie square, and has two ray
gabions at each corner, Bto. The other fort
stands on .the bank of the Allegheny, in form of
a parallelogram, but nothing so strong as thk
other; several of the out works,are lately begul
and still unfinished. There are, I think, thirty
stacks of chimneys standing, the houses all burnt
down. They sprung one mine, which rained one
of their magazines, a prodigious quantity on
old carriage iron, barrels of guns, about a
cart load of scalping knives, - Btc They went
off in mien haste that they could not make
quite havoc of their works they intended.—
We are told, by the Indians, that they lay the
night before last at Beaver. Creek, forty miles
down the Ohio from here. Whether they . buried
their cannon in the river, or carried them down
in their batteaux, we have not yet learned. A
boy twelve years old, who has been their prisoner
two years, who escaped on the 21 inst., tells us
they carried a prodigious quantity of wood into
the fort, that they had burnectfive of the prisdners
they took at Major Grant's defeat, on the parade,
and delivered others to the Indians, who were
tomahawked on the spot.'. We have found num
bers of dead bodies within a. quarter of a mile of
the , fort,,unbaried, and so many montnnents of
French humanity. . A! great manylndians, Mostly
Delawares; are gathered on the Isldnd last night
and this morning, todreat with the General, And
we are making rafts to bring them over. Whether
the General think of repairing the ruins, or lest-
lug any of the troops here, I have not yet heard.
Mr. Beatty is appointed to preach a thanksglY
log superiority of his Mojeety's arms. We left
all our tents at Loyal Hannon, and every conve
niency except a blanket and knapsack. You'll
excuse the the errors of haste, and believe me to
be, - Rev'd Sir,
AN ANNODOTE O RAOHEL.--. About five years
ago there was a wealthy Englishman in Paris,
who became a great admirer of Mlle. Rachel.
Re!had the habit of visiting her every day just
before dinner time, to her, great annoyance.—
Every day he came Mlle. Rachel would sit near
her chimney, having near her a large pin-cush- .
ion, when the Englishman oame, and while he
was kissing her left hand, she would adroitly
take from his cravat, with her right hand the
valuable pin which held it in place. One day
"she took possession of a valuable emerald, an
other a large black pearl, another a serpent with
ruby eyes, another a helmet with diamonds, an
other a rare cameo, another day a valuable opal,
another a negroe's head in onyx, another in tur
quoise set in pearls, etc., etc., eto. Oee:day her
servant came running in saying, 'Madame!
Madame I here is the Englishman!" "Very
well, show him in." "But, Madame, he has on
a stock to-day." "Uhl then say I am not at
home." Mlle Rachel kept the jewelry.
A SINGULAR AND DANGEROUB 141AT013.-41/
New York paper we find the following statement'
of a match between the celebrated Captain
John Travis and Mr. Samuel A. Byda.tn, of New
" Travis bete Sydam $l,OOO that he will fink
boy who will stand at the distance of ten paces,
and place an orange, not to exceed two and a
half inches in,diameter, in each hand and upon
his head, which he (Travis) will shoot from their
respective localities. No object to intervene. If
Travis fails to find the bay who will stand, or
fails to hit the oranges in the three shots, or at
any shot touches the boy, he loses the bet. The
match to be shot in Louisville, June 16th, 1858."
Travis has accomplished this feat before iu
New Orleans, some three years ago. Winter be
fore this he shot a match in New York with Mr.
S. for $l,OOO and beat him easily. If he wins
this, it will forever place him on the pinaole of
fame as the first pistol shot in - the world.— &.
