e was posted in the battle field, the fight was sure to be waged with fearlessness, good judgment, and massive energy. Of all the officers whom Virginia sent into the war, next to Washington, Morgan was the greatest; equal to every occasion in the camp or before an enemy, unless it were that he knew not how to be idle or to retreat. In ten days after he received his commission, he attracted to himself from the valley a company of ninety six young backwoodsmen. His first lieutenant was John Humphreys; his second, William Heth; his sergeant, Charles Porterfield. No captain ever commanded braver soldiers, or was better supported by his officers; in twenty one days they marched from Winchester in Virginia to Cambridge. In Maryland Michael Cresap, then just thirty three years old, on receiving notice by the committee of Frederick, to raise a company, despatched a messenger beyond the Alleghanies, and at his bidding two and twenty of his old companions in arms, leaving behind them the

The next in rank as lieutenant colonels were Roger Enos, who proved to be a craven, and the brave Christopher Greene of Rhode Island. The ma- Chap. LIII.} 1775 Sept. jors were Return J. Meigs of Connecticut, and Timothy Bigelow, the early patriot of Worcester, Massachusetts. Morgan, with Humphreys and Heth, led the Virginia riflemen; Hendricks, a Pennsylvania company; Thayer commanded one from Rhode Island, and like Arnold, Meigs, Dearborn, Henry, Senter, Melvin, left a journal of the expedition. Aaron Burr, then but nineteen years old, and his friend Matthias Ogden, carrying muskets and knapsacks, joined as volunteers. Samuel Spring attended as chaplain.

The csent in 2. congress probably just fifty members. Rodney had arrived from Delaware, and joining Mackean secured that colony. Dickinson and Morris stayed away, which enabled Franklin, Wilson, and Morton, of Pennsylvania, to outvote Willing and Humphreys. The South Carolina members, for the sake of unanimity, came round; so though New York was still unable to vote, twelve colonies, without one dissenting colony, resolved: That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be free and indepe
The Alexandria Rifles. This gallant company suffered severely in the fight of Monday last near Williamsburg. The company is composed of most excellent fighting material, and distinguished itself at the battle of Bull Bun on the 18th of July last. A member of the company who was in the fight of Monday furnishes us with the following list of casualties sustained: Killed.--Capt. John Humphreys, privates Engene Fairfax, Francis Acbott. John P. Thompson. Mortally Wounded.--James H. McVeigh, Samuel Paul. Dangerously Wounded--John Swann; Hugh S. Hill, leg broken; James Stickrev leg broken; Charles McKnight, arm shot off; J. Conrad Johnson, wounded in the arm. John F. Addison, who belonged to the same company, who received a commission in the same regiment as 2d Lieut. three days before the fight, was also killed.
