e. Hardly had he done this when Price received a telegram from Bragg urging him to hasten to Nashville. [See map, p. 702.] This is what Price ought to have done. It is what Halleck, Grant, and Rosecrans feared that he would do. Rosecrans telegraphed Grant that he had better watch the Old Woodpecker (alluding to that bird's skill in deceiving its Brigadier-General Henry little, C. S. A., killed at Iuka. From a photograph. enemies), or he would get away from them. Halleck telegraphed (Sep-. tember 17th): Do everything in your power to prevent Price from crossing the Tennessee River. A junction of Price and Bragg in Tennessee would be most disastrous. They should be fought while separate Grant replied that he would do everything in his power to prevent such a catastrophe, and began at once to concentrate his forces against Price. Ord was pushed forward to Burnsville, where Grant established his own headquarters, and Rosecrans was ordered to concentrate his two divisions at J

Yet mercy was mingled with severity; and, if no reprieve was granted to Lawson, yet Graffenried, as the great chieftain of the Palatines, on pledging his people to neutrality, and promising to occupy no land without the consent of the tribe, was suffered, after a captivity of five weeks, to return through the woods on foot. He returned to desolated settlements. On the twenty-second of Sep- Sept. 22. tember, small bands of the Tuscaroras and Corees, Martin. Wiliamson Spotswood, Mss. acting in concert, approached the scattered cabins along the Roanoke and Pamlico Sound. As night came on, a whoop from a warrior called his fierce associates from the woods, to commence the indiscriminate carnage.

No sooner was the ministry definitively established, than Grenville, as the head of the treasury, proceeded to redeem the promise made to the House of Commons of an American revenue. The revenue from the customs in America could by no means produce a sufficient fund to meet the expenses of its military establishment. On the morning of the twenty-second day of Sep- chap. VIII.} 1763. Sept. tember, three lords of the treasury, George Grenville, Lord North, and one Hunter who completed the number requisite for the transaction of business, held a board in the room set apart for their use in Downingstreet, and, without any hesitancy or discussion, they adopted a minute directing Jenkinson, the First Secretary of the Treasury, to write to the Commissioners of the Stamp Duties to prepare the draft of a bill to be presented to parliament for extending the st
But on the twentieth 20. Cornwallis arrived at Petersburg; and, to free his camp of one whom he despised, he ordered Arnold back to New York. Clinton had little reason to be satisfied with an Sept. officer who had represented to the ministry that he might have taken the American posts in the Highlands in a few days by a regular attack. Nevertheless he detached him once more, and this time against his native state. Crossing from Long Island, the troops under his command, on the sixth of Sep- 6. tember, landed on each side of New London. The town, which offered little resistance, was plundered and burned. After a gallant defence of forty minutes by Colonel Ledyard, with about one hundred and fifty ill-armed militia-men, Fort Griswold was carried by storm, the Americans having lost not more than six men. When Ledyard had surrendered, the British Chap. XXV.} 1781. officer in command ran him through with his sword, and refused quarter to the garrison. Seventy-three of them wer

To conciliate that power, Jay was invited to Versailles, where, on the fourth of Sep- Sept. 4. tember, Rayneval sought to persuade him to resign for his country all pretensions to the eastern valley of the Mississippi, and with it the right to the navigation of that stream. Jay was inflexible. On the sixth, Rayneval sent him a paper containing a long 6. argument against the pretensions of America to touch the Mississippi, or the great lakes; and on the next morning, after an interview with the Spanish ambas- 7. sador, he set off for England, to establish a good understanding with Shelburne. On the ninth, the departure of Rayneval came to 9. the knowledge of Jay. On the tenth, a translation 10. of an intercepted despatc
