against the Government of the United States. About the twenty-fifth day of August last an expedition was organized at Toronto, Canada, under the immediate direction of Captain Hines, formerly of Morgan's command, composed of one hundred and fifty to two hundred escaped prisoners and rebel soldiers, accompanied by Colonel G. St. Leger Grenfell, at one time Morgan's Chief of Staff and afterward Inspector-General on the staff of General Bragg; Colonel Vincent Marmaduke, of Missouri; Colonel Ben. Anderson, of Kentucky; Captains Castleman and Cantrell, formerly of Morgan's command, and other rebel officers. This force was armed with pistols at Toronto, divided, and its members, in citizen's dress, came to Chicago, by different routes, in the same trains which brought the thronging thousands who assembled on the twenty-ninth of August to attend the Chicago Convention, and which made it difficult to detect their presence. It was to have been assisted by large numbers of Sons of Liber

, from old Hanover, which has done so much to make herself renowned in our brief history. The eldest son of Captain Anderson, Richard Clough Anderson, Jr., was sent Minister to one of the South American Republics, by Mr. Monroe, about 1823, and died there. He was quite a young man, and very promising. This seems to have been a warlike family.-- Richard Clough Anderson had a younger brother, who commanded a company of Hanover troops throughout Greene's campaigns. He was in the battles of Guilford, Camden and Eutaw, and at the Siege of Ninety-Six. He went also to Georgia, with Wayne, in his expedition against the Indians, immediately after the close of the Carolina campaign. There was no braver officer in the whole army. He did not follow his brother to Kentucky, but married, lived and died in his native county of Hanover. He left one son — the venerable Col. Benjamin Anderson, of Goochland, who is still alive, and who is, therefore, the first cousin of the Fort Sumter man.
when within a short distance from the mouth of the cannon, and the match being about applied to the cannon, my father darted his spontoon at the soldier about to apply the match, which took effect in his body, causing him to fall. They continued the charge, passed through the line of the enemy, and made good their retreat by crossing the river. They passed up the river some miles, crossed again, found a number of the enemies horses grazing. --Each man took a horse, and the third day, at night, reached the camp, and found they had been reported all killed and prisoners. You can readily appreciate the feelings of a son for the cherished memory of a father, who died of consumption, caused by exposure and hardships during seven years and ten months, in the arduous duties of a soldier's life, and consequently will excuse the hasty detail I have given you relating to him. Major Robt. Anderson has two brothers in Cincinnati, named Larye and Charles. Your old friend, Benj. Anderson.
