From the Washington Union, Jan. 11.
National Convention of the Veterans of
The eighth of January , 1855, will long be
remembered in Washington, no less from
the patriotic associations which naturally
cluster around one of the brightest days in
the history of the public than from the sim
ple, stirring fact, that, after the lapse of
forty years, a glorious remnant of that glo
rious band who had faithfully and fearlessly
upheld the flag of their country in many a
hard fought field assembled in the capital
of the nation, net to ask for honors or re
wards, but to lay before the country a plain
recital of their services and sacrifices, and
to give utterance to their honest expecta
tions that the action of the representatives
of the people may be rightfully influenced
when they are called upon to discharge one
of the most sacred debts of the nation.—
Although the call for holding this conven
tion was only published about six weeks
ago, and although the summons went forth
to those who are bent with years, if not in
firmities, it fell upon eager, anxious ears,
and in spite of the inclement season of the
year, and of physical disabilities, and of the
toils of travel, and in many cases of the piti
able, pinching wants of poverty that corn-
plains not, hundreds if not thousands, of
the veterans of 18.12. met in convention, in
this city, on Monday morning. It was a
bright, balmy, beautiful, day, and it seemed
as if winter had relaxed its icy hold under
the genial, heart-moving influences inspir
ed by the presence of those stout old defend
ers of their country's rights and honor.—
We will not attempt to follow the veterans
from the time of their arrival in our city,
until the close of the proceedings in the con
vention last evening. They were welcom
ed .to the federal city with a wormth of
hospitality characteristic of the people of
Washington; while the volunteer corps of
the District vied with each other in their at
tempts to do military honors to the old sol
diers. The proceedings at the convention
in the morning (which was held in Dr. Sun
derland's church, on 41, street) attracted an
immense concourse of people. But the
great feature of the day was the imposing
ceremonies at the Presidential mansion.—
The procession broke into column about
half past twelve o'clock, and took up their
line of march for the White House. The
side-walks were lined with people ; the win,
dows of the houses on Pennsylvania evenue
and throughout the entire line of march,
were crowded with their inmates ; while the i
steps and portico of the Treasury building
fairly glittered in one vast, variegated mass
of silks and satins.
The east room of the Presidential mansion
•presented an imposing spectacle, not from its
guilded, glittering trappings, but from the
group of men who occupied the northern ex
tremity of this noble apartment.
In the centre of the group stood the Pres
ident of this mighty republic, quiet, self-re,
lying, and with an air of simple, native dig
nity about the man which is felt and ac
knowledged by all who approach him. He
was surrounded by Men whose names are
closely interwoven with the history of out
country. Tall, and towering above all stood
General Scott, his form still erect, not
withstanding nearly half a century's hard
services for his country ; and there, too,
were Generals Dane and Shields, and stout
old Commodores, who braved the storm and
battle when a few stars Only glittered in the
confederacy of States, when our ships were
few in number, and when Britain claimed to
be mistress of the seas; and last, but not
least, there were members .of the cabinet—
the cool and far-seeing Marcy; the energet
ic, accomplished and chivalric Davis; Dob
bin, resolute, active and indefatigable; and
Cushing, with all his rare intellectual gifts
and wealth of mind , Judge Campbell, Mr.
Guthrie, and Governor McClelland were un
able to be present, owing to -the press of offi
cial business. Among the naval officers we
noticed Commodores Stewat t, Smith and
The head of the column reached the White
House about two o'clock, and, under the ad
mirable guidance of the chief marshal and
his aids, the old soldiers were escorted into
the east room without the slightest noise or
confusion. ' marching in sections of two, and,
coil-like. filling up the east room compactly,
yet with great regularity. As the old sol
diers filled by the President with totteting
steps, yet gleaming eyes, it required no effort
of the immaeination to bring back the despe
rate battles of Chippewa, Niagara, Lundy's
Lane and New Orleans, with all their atten
dant strife and bloodshed—the groans of the
wounded, the anguish of the dying ! A few
of the survivors of those hard • fought battles
were there and one, at least, of those gener
als who had led them to glory and renown
was also present—not only living in the glo,
rious history of the past, but with new and
()Teener laurels added to his brow. In the ranks
we noticed the stalwart form and active step
of General Cass. As he passed the Presiden
tial group, lie seized hold of Secretary Mar
cy, observing, with a laugh, " Here's your
place governor. If you use the pen now, you
handled the sword in 1812." We need I
scarcely add, that Mr. M. required no fur-i
they prompting from the distinguished and
patriotic Senator from Michigan. He was
soon incorporated in the ranks of the old sol
diers, where he remained during i.ne whole
As soon as the room was filled to, its ut
most capaCity, consistent with comfort, and
the measured tramp of feet was no longer
heard, the grand marshal of the day introdu
ced the president of the National Conven
tion of the veterans of 1812 to the Chief
Hon. Joel B. Sutherland, of Pennsylvania
addressed the president in an affecting speech,
to which the President replied in his usual
happy style. In conclusion the president
" 4rly heart, gentleman beats with a
prouder throb on the eighth of *January than
on any other day of the year, always except
ing the fourth of July : but I feel just now
that its pulsations'are freer and stronger be
cause you are here. You are not only vete,
ran soldiers, but American citizens, and need
no welcome to the house of which you are
the proprietors, and I, for the time being am
but the tenant. You will permit me, how
ever, to remark that the house and its occupant
are alike honored by your presence. May
God, who has so signally blessed our country,
ever preserve andlble§s its defenders !"
The place alone prevented•the outburst of
enthusiasm which the feeling and eloquent
remarks of the President were so peculiarly
Calculated to call forth. As it was he was
frequently interrupted' with applause and at
the close of his remarks three cheers, and
" three more" were given in his honor.—
Three cheers were also
_given for General
Cass, more for General Scott, and as
many for "free trade and sailors rights."—
At the signal from the grand marshal the
various delegations formed, as well as the
crowd would permit, into sections and re
sumed their line of march-,-passing through
the door at the extreme north end of the
room. At this door the President stationed
himself, in order that he might take each of
the veterans by the baud, bid him a welcome
to Washington, and wish him a " God speed"
on his journey home. Many of the old sole
diers availed themselves of the occasion to
stop for a minute or two to have a chat with
the president about the " old times." All
left delighted with their reception, and par
ticularly delighted with the plain, unpreten
ding, cordial manners of the Chief Magis
While the delegates were passing out of
the building, a delegate belonging to one of
the tribes of friendly Indians of New York,
mounted a chair and made the following
" The Six Nations of New York wish to
be heard in relation to this matter. Gener
al Samuel George has just gone to pay his
respects to his Great Father, President
Pierce ; and he desires me to say to you that
he is happy in hearing the interpretation of
what has been said here to-day. The
friends of the Six Nations who are here are
glad to hear that their Great Father desires
that their services be cherished with remem
brance. General Ceorge wishes me to say
to you that the sentiments expressed by his
Great Father meet his wishes and those of
his friends. He says that, although the pale
faces have superseeded his people, still he
prays to the Great Spirit that he may prosper
this country. These Six Nations of New
York, though they have been reduced in
their circumstances, yet have the spirit of
1812—that has never been conquered; and
they wish that the government and people
of the United States may prosper forever.—
Their chiefs desire me to say that although
they cannot stand here and take each one of
you by the hand, yet their hearts are with
you. They will stand by you as they stood
by your fathers. Your fathers lived in peace
with our fathers, therefore we will live in
peace with you."
Not the least thrilling incident in the day
was the presence of the veterans and their
fine military escort in Jackson Square, As
the old soldiers and the young soldiers mar
oiled in military order around the statue of
the hero of New Orleans, the effect upon the
beholders was almost magical. Late in the
afternoon, the convention re-assembled in the
church before named, for the purpose of adop
ting such measures as would be most likely
to further the ends they have in view, The
eonlention had not adjourned at nine o'clock
We omitted to state that the convention
in the morning was addressed by general
Vast Rensselaer, of New York, and Hon. J
M. Porter, of Pennsylvania. The organi
zation of the convention was perfected by
the election of Hon Joel B. Sutherland, of
Pennsylvania, es President, and the custo
mary number of Vice Presidenst.
A series of resolutions were adopted, and
on the 10th the veterans visited Mount Ver
non, stopping at Fort Washington on their
way -back. The day was very beautiful,
and the veterans full of gaiety, accompanied
as they were by a large number of ladies
and gentleman. Daguerreotypes were tak
en of various groups, includino t' a number
of children, at the mansion of Mrs. Wash
ington, and at the tomb. We noticed among
others, Mrs. Washington leaning upon the
shoulder of an old soldier from Kentuekey-,
the son of an officer who fought under Gen
eral Washington. While at the mansion,
eloquent speeches were delivered by Mr.
Wdson, orator of the Six Nations, and by
Judge Sutherland, President of the Conyenr
tion. They were highly appropriate. Sev
eral excellent speeches were made on the
buat, one of the most interesting • being by
Dr. Sundown, a Seneca Indian, interpreted
by one of his tribe, and full of historical re
miniscences. He was frequently interrupted
bv applause. After he had concluded Gen.
Coombs addressed the old soldiers in behalf
of the red men, who, once owned this beau:
tile! country, but now had scarcely enough
for their grave yards. He said some of them
had fought by his side during the last war
with great self devotion and had shared his
captivity and sufferings. He would scorn to
Le the beneficiary of a government which
would take everything and give nothing in
return. The Indians were poor and the gov,
ernment rich, and he hoped his brether sol
diers would contribnte enough to send them
home and make the pot boil when they got
there. He said their great chief, Col. George,
%vas a brave soldier on the Niagara frontier,
during the war. He was willing to take
him by the hand as a brother, which he did.
There was then an old fashioned shaking
of hands all round, followed by three succes
sive war whoops by the Indians.
Wilson, the Indian orator, then spoke with
great emphasis and effect, and was followed
by Colonel Baldwin, who introduced an old
colored sailor- The latter spun a yarn of
much interest of trials and clanger endured
during the war.
On reaching the National Hotel, Washing
ton, the old soldiers formed in close order,
and were addressed by General Coombs in
brief farewell speech.
Funds were raised through the efforts of
ColonolyoL l no• and Colonel Baldwin, to pay
the expenses of the poor soldiers and Indians,
and all retired to their several abodes fatigued,
but delighted with the events of the day.
The Easton Argus, in an article on the
subject of the organization of the Legisla
ture, concludes as follows;
The people can now see how this system
of Know-Notbingism operates. Here are a
set of men elected to the Legislature, who
were chosen by secret midnight caucus, un
der oath to carry out the instructions of those
who selected them, and the great mass of the
people are not represented at all.
In what condition are our citizens placed
by the secret action of the Know-Nothings '1
Constituencies are nothing in the eyes of that
Order. The interest of the community is
equally obsolete. Petitions in favor of any
particular measure, were formerly acknowl,
edged of power, because it is a Constitution,
al right; but now, instead of sending them
to the Legislature, they -must . be sent to the
Know-Nothing Lodges, to be effective, as all
the business of legislation is arranged in those
bodies. And even, here, there is..a denial of
Cor.stitutional right, in consequence of• a re—
fusal to receive petitions- which do not come
from their own members. Virtually, our re-•
publican form of government is disbanded,
as our Legislature speaks and acts only at the
suggestion of a Secret Order, whose members
are bound by oaths. The people are without
a representation, the majority of the mem
bers of the Legislature being mere Delegates
from Know-Nothing Councils.
Rescue of a' Chippew a Captive' Girl.
It will be remembered that, last summer, a
hunting party of Chippewa Indians were at
tacked by a war party of Sioux, atlit a ll men
and women, save those who •,,
girl who was taken prisoner, were rrx ass ,..
cred. The girl, before she was captured, ex
erted every nerve to make good her escape.
She jumped into a canoe and put out into Ot
ter Tail Lake, but was immediately followed
by her pursuers. When they came near she
sprang from the canoe and endeavored to
elude pursuit by diving and running in a clus,
ter of weeds ; but her doom was sealed.—,
Thirsting for his prey, the chief, who was in
the canoe, threw at her a tomahawk, which
struck her in the side and mangled her in a
shocking manner; and before she had recov
ered from the effects of the wound, this vali
ant chief struck her over the head with a pad
dle and stunned her, thereby making her an
As soon as he had her in his clutches—she
being young and handsome—he resolved
not to kill her, but make her his wife.—,
Having already two Sioux wives, their jeal
ousy was aroused at seeing the third, their
old and ancient enemy, enter the wigwam ;
and when their husband's back was turned,
would treat the Chippawa maideti ir the
most inhuman manner, putting coals of fire
on her head, and lacerating her flesh with
knives, until sick at heart, she determined to
put an end to her existence. This fact be,
coming known to the Sioux, they held a
council and resolved to burn her at the stake
at the Yellow Medicine, for the perpetration
of which horrible deed all arrangements were
made. The Sioux interpreter, Mr. Joseph
Campbell, finding this out, determined on her
rescue. Accordingly, he started for Otter
Tail Lake, where he found her and took her
in his buggy to a point where he had sta
tioned our friend C. C. Vandenberg, who
brought her at two o'clock in the morning to
Fort Ridgly, where she was put into the
hands of the commanding officer, who hail
her wants attended to.
When sufficiently recovered from her
wounds, she was brought to Fort Snelling by
the dragoons, then on their way home from
the Sioux payment, and from thence she was
sent home to her band. Too much credit
cannot be given the gentlemen who thus per
illed their own lives to save this savage.—
