ST O K E !It, o f O h io, Delivered in the House o f Representatives, April 6 , 1836, while jn Committee o f the Whole on the Slate nf the Union, on the Appropriation Bill for the Naval Service. (Concluded.) Mr. Chairman, the gentleman from Kentuc­ ky has alluded to Fort Stephenson,and sir, the brilliant, I might say unparalleled defence of that fortress by Major Croghan is a bright page in our annals—it is now too late to dim its lus­ tre. Whatever may have occurred between General Harrison and a subaltern officer, in the strict discharge o f military duty, has been passed upon and fully appreciated by the Ame­ rican People, for more than twenty years.— There were those who reflected on Gen. Har­ rison for his conduct, in the very delicate po­ sition in which he was placed by the refusal o f Congress to obey his orders—orders, sir, that were the result of a council of war com­ posed ofofficers who afterwards distinguished themselves on the lfontier; but the true h isto­ ry o f tlty transaction explained the course that was pursued, and fully justified it. Permit me to refer to a letter which I would commend the gentleman to study before he again indulges jn the strain he lias already pursued: L ower S eneca T own , August 29, 1813. The undersigned, being the general, field, and staff’ officers, with that portion of the Northwestern ariuy, under the i m m e d i a t e c o m ­ mand of General Harrison, havo observed with I regret and surprise, that charges, improper in the form as in the substance, have been made against the conduct of General Harrison dur­ ing the recent investment of the Lower San­ dusky. At another time, and under ordinary circumstances, we should deem it improper and unmiiitary thus publicly to give any opinion respecting the movements of the army. But public confidence in tlie commanding general is essential to the success o f the campaign, and causelessly to withhold is more than individu­ al injustice; it becomes a serious injury to the service. A part of the force of which the A- merican army consist, will derive its greatest strength and efficacy from a confidence in the commanding general, and from those moral cuuses which accompany and give energy to public opinion. A very erroneous idea res­ pecting the number of troops then at the dis­ posal of the general, has doubtless been the primary cause of those unfounded impressions.

On the 9th o f Decern- her, 1 8 1 3 , a public entertainment was tender­ ed to General Harrison by the People of Phi­ ladelphia, and I must be permitted the gratifi­ cation to read the short but truly republican address with which he profaced the sentiment that such an occasion is expected to call iorthjt “ Gentleman,” said General Harrison, “ per­ mit me to offer a volunteer toast,and very brief­ ly to state the motive which prompts me to take one of the regular toasts of the day, as a mean of communicating rny opinion. Believ­ ing, ns 1 do, that a sentiment is gaining ground unfriendly to republcanism, and injurious to the nation, and knowing by my own expe­ rience, that the sentiment is not w e ll founded, I will gvie you— “ The Militia of the United States — They possess the Roman spirit,'and when our G o ­ vernment shall think proper to give them that organization and discipline o f which they are susceptable, they will perform deeds that will emulate those of the legions led by Marcellus and Scipio.” And where maj’ we look for a more honora­ ble testimony to the value and efficiency of a well regulated and diciplined militia? It cer­ tainly becomes those who would impute to Ge­ neral Harrison a disregard for the feelings of the American People, who after all, the only American soldiers, to pause and reflect, ere they cast their anathemas upon one who could utter a sentiment so exalted. Mr. Chairman, the Ancient Dominion did not forget, in that hour o f general congratula­ tion, one of her gallant sons: sir, she could never, no never, even in the darkest hour of party violence, forget the father of that eon. No, sir, while her own annals, while the great charter o f our political liberty remain, the name o f Benjamin Harrison will be associated with that of Jefferson, o f Randolph, and of Ren- ry’c Sir, permit me to quote from the Richmond Enquirer, when the news of Proctor’s defeat reached that city: “ General Harrison’s detailed letter tells us o f every thing we wish to know about the of­ fices except himself. Pie does justice to every one but Plarrison, and the world must therefore do justice to the man who was too modest to be just to himself.” Again, what Virginian has not read the pro­ clamation of the mayor of Richmond recom­ mending a general illumination, on the even­ ing of November 2 4 , 1 8 1 3 , when, guided by the common impulse, he told his fellow -' townsmen to “ give vent to their feelings—to think of Perry, who paved the way, and-of Harrison, whoso intrepid valor had thus nobly achieved tbe victory !” f I find this proclama­ tion is dated at ten o’clock on the evening- o f t h e S a b b a t h : a n d well might the spirit of the old Common wealth have been roused when, like the mother o fthe G r a c c h i , she could point to Harrison, and claim him as one ofher chil­ dren. Well might the sjunpathy which was then excited in every bosom have been regard­ ed as the common property ofher People, when like the torch that was passed from hand lo hand in the days of Grecian glory, the holy fire of gratitude pervaded every heart, as it found there its kindred element. Shall 1 refer to others, and state their pa­ triotic People, to swell the song of universal triumph which echoed from every hill, and spread through every valley of this great R e ­ public, when the heart o f a whole nation throb­ bed with tumultous joy? Enough has already been told to rescue, I trust, the memory ofth e past from this auto defe of party; to place be­ fore this House and this nation vvhat was, and wliat is to exhibit the startling truth, that no service can be so meritorious, no fame so well deserved, no worth so exalted, but that partly .necessity may doom its destruction, and party discipline carry out the sentence. It is, Mr. Chairman, a subject o f gratulaliotl, that,in this war against character, our own archives have not yet been destroyed; that the bright page of our country’s history, the records even of this House, have not y et been fired by the torch of some modern Omar.— There is a memorial o f public opinion, that may be seen in this day of darkness, standing out, not, sir, in letters of gold, but in the simple yet sincere language of a nation’s gratitude. Let me refer tiie committee, and the honors-\ blc* gentleman also, to the resolution o f this House, which passed, without, a dissenting voice, in April, 1818, presenting the thanks of Congress to Harrison and Shelby, and au­ thorising the President to bestow upon each of them a gold medal, ibr their gallantry at the Thames. Thus Mr. Chairman, have I followed the gentleman from the Wabash to the Thames. I have concealed nothing, and I believe spoken naught but what the occasion required. The mass of materials from which 1 have gleaned the incidents I have presented is y e t full o f in­ terest, for, sir, it cannot be exhausted; and i f my remarks shall induce any one who hears me to go back lo the “ fire and smoke” of past time, 1 shall feel myself amply rewarded for the efforts I have made, as I can then assure mj’self his views will become clear, and his - judgment thoroughly disabused. Sir, the State 1 have the honor in part to represent, holds in high estimation the Ame- tican Navy; within her borders that splendid victory was achieved, which proved to an as­ tonished world that oven a British licet might he conquered. Ou the bosom of that inland soa, whose waves hud never been disturbed but by the strife o fth e elements, the roar o f A- meriean cannon first awoke its slumbering wa­ ters; and beneath the soil o f Ohio, on a beauti­ ful isle ofthe lake, in all the solitude o f Nature repose their ashes who fell fightingunder that flag which bore upon its glorious folds the more glorious motto, “ d o n tgiveup the ship.” Yes, we hope to preserve one monument, at least, that shall through all future time pro­ claim the heroism of the past, and serve to perpetuate the honor of the American arms. Mr. Chairman, the bold of spirit who directed that unrivalled battle, and who wherever peril was to be met, threw himself into the breach has gone to his final account; but he has hefty a memorial behind him, alike honorable to his exalted generosity, and gratifying to the peo­ ple ofth e W est. 1 allude, sir, to the follow­ ing extract o f a letter written shortly after the victory: “ U. S. S chooner A riel , Sept. 15, 1813. “ S ir:—The very great assistance in the ac­ tion of the 10 th instant, derived from those men you were pleased to send on board the s q u a d r o n , renders it a duty to return you my sincere thanks for so timely a reinforcement, (in fact, I may say, sir, without these men the Victory could nol hare been achcwcd, ) and e- quallv assure you that they behaved as be­ came good soldiers and seamen.

H arrison .” Sir, the people of Ohio have been told upon this floor, tbat injustice was done to tlie in i- , litia o f lhat Slate by the commanding genera], ’ that their motives were impugned, and thefrj efficiency denied. To sustain the assertion\ a letter of General Harrison's to.the secretary. . of War has been referred to, dated in March, 1813, in which he speaks of his dismay and-; disinclination to the service which appeared., to prevail; and saj’s that “ the new draughts;. ^ from Ohio could not be depended upon.-” l n the same letter be alludes to the militia served during the previous w inter^ the est terms: goes on lo remark iftdt JlC.A® b '■*!. *Niles’ Register, 14i>. t\Niles’ Register, t y f.Niles’ ReaUti v, 117.
