United States Ship Saratogat Piattsburgh
Bay, September 13,1814
Sir—1I have the honor tg give you the
particulars of the action which took place
on ‘uc Vth ast. on tuis lake.
For several days. the eiomy were on
their way to Plattsburgh by and water
and it being well understoo that a - attack
would be made at the sam: me their
land and naval forces, I dc ned a-
wait at anchor the approach = hela
At 7 A. M.the look out bh: ant c-
ed the approach of the enemy ~ At ., he
anchored in a line ahead, at about suv yards
distance {rom my line; his ship opposcd to
the Saratoza, his barge to the Eagle, captain
Robert Henely, his galiles, thirteen in num
ber, to the scooner,sioop and a division of
our «lies 5; one of his sloops assisting
their ship and brig, the other assisting their
gallies. Our comaining galites with the
Saratoga and Lagi.
In this situation the whole force on beth
sides Secame engaged, the Saratoga suffer-
ed much from the heavy fire of Confiance,—
1 cou.d perceive at the same time, howev-
er, that our fire was very desttuctive to her.
The Ticonderova, het. com. Cassi, guol-.
Jantly sustained aor full share of the action.
At haif past 10 o’clock the Eagie, not being
able to bring her guns to beat, cut her ca-
ble and anchored in a more eligible posi
tion, between my ship and the Ticondero-
ga, where she very much ansoyed ther enoe-
my, but unforiunately leaving me Cxposcd
toa galling fire from the cnemy’s brig, me
Our guns on the starboard side being car=
lv all dismounted, or not manageable, a
stern anchor was let go, the bower cavle
cui and the ship winded wita a fresh broad
side on the enemy's ship, which soon after
surrendered. Our broadside was then
spring to bear on the brig, which surrend-
rendered in about 15 minutes after.
The sloop that was opposed to the Eagle
had struck some time before, and drifted
down the line ; the sloop which was | with
their gailies having stuck also. Three of
Lacie galiles are said to be sunk, the others
pulled off. Qur gailies were about obey.
ing with alacrity the signal fo follow then,
when all the vessels werereported to be in
a sinking state ; it then became necessary
to annul the signal to the gallies, and order
their men (o the pumps.
I could only look at the enemy’s gallies
going off in a shattered cowclition, for therv@
was not a mast in either squadron that coujd®
stand to mal c sail on; the lower riging be-
tig nearly all shot away ; hung down as
though it had been just placed over. the

Deserted from.the Rendezvous at Delles.

between the hours of land 2 P. M. an en-
listed Soldier in the 4th Begimdnt of Rifle-
mets who calls himsell
Twenty one years old, about 5 feet 9 1 inch~
es high, light complexion, fair hair, blut
eyes, and by profession it is believed, a
House Carpenter. Ie states that he ser-
ved his apprenticeship at Shippensburg, n
this state, and that his father resides about
three miles from Carlisle.
ed tobe an’ artiul fellow, and strong suspi-
cions are entertained of his honesty.
The cloathing he took with Lim were a
Rifle Cap complete, Rifle Frock and a pair
of white cotton Pantaloons furnished by the
United States. From the Information I have
been able to obtain, it is certain that he bh: §
a citizen’s Long Coat with him, with piat=
ed buttons. T'he colourofthe Coat it is be-
lieved, is a dark brown.
He Had also in his possession, a few hours
before he was missed, two doubie-cascd siie
ver watches ; the one oid fashioned, and st«
tached to the other a square silver key, with
the initials J. M. engrave: ou it, and it is
supposed Bedford notes to the amount of 30
of* 40 dollars
Persons are cautioned against aiding ov
harboring said deserter, as the taw will Ue
strictly enforced against them.
Itis to be hoped that ail good citizens will
make use of some exertions to ensure his
apprehension, tor in times like the present, °
the crime of desertion ought to be ranked |
amongst those of the blackest cast; and, in-
dependent of this, certainly no friend of his
country can countenance such presumptu~
ous fraud.
I wiily with pleasure, give the above res
ward for his apprehension, and aii reasona-
ble chardes shall be paid, it delivered to me
here, or to any other officer belonging to
the Army of the United States.
The law against harberiug deserters runs
“Sec. 17. And be it further enucted,
That every person, not subject 10 the vuies
and articles of war, whoshail procure or er «
tice a soldier, inthe service cf the United
States, to desert; or who shail purchase
from any soldier, hus arms,uniform clothing,
or any part thereof ; and every captain cv
commanding officer of any ship ov vessel
who shall enter on board such ship or ves-
sel as one of his crew; knowing him to have
deserted, or otherwise carry away any such
soldier, orshall refuse to deliver«dim up to
the c=igrs of his commanding officer, shall,
upon legal conviction, be fined at the digs
cretion of any court having €oguizance of
tlie same, in any sum not exceeding three
hundred dollars and be imprisencd any term
not exceeding one year.” fi
