ed he had orders not to land, and then requested that at least two of the committee might come on board his boat for a few minutes, as he was desirous of communicating with them, and could not land. Under these circumstances Jas. A. Miller and S. Benezet went on board, and the boat dropped off into the stream about fifteen or twenty yards. Upon getting on board the boat the officer in command again announced himself as Lieutenant Abbott, and again stated that he (Abbott) had been sent by Catisfied with the result of their mission. They were neither greeted or welcomed on their arrival, or greeted on their departure. --The whole interview on the part of the committee was cold and reserved, and barely civil. From the first to the last no flag or signal was displayed or even suggested by any man, woman or child in the place; nor was there any desire to hold any intercourse with them. No answer whatever was made to their flag of truce. Samuel Benezet. Jas. A. Milles.
