ave way and fled, whereupon the advance was pushed about a mile beyond the ridge, and, with the rest of the army, went into camp for the night. In accordance with Special Field Orders, No. 94, from Headquarters Military Division Mississippi, the command moved forward on the following day, and encamped at La Fayette. On the eighteenth, the army of the Tennessee continued its march along the La Fayette and Summerville road to the vicinity of Summerville, crossing the Chattooga River near Tryon's Factory. The bridge across the stream had been partially destroyed, but was quickly repaired by the pioneer corps. On the following day, the command moved to Alpine, and on the twentieth pushed on by two routes to Galesville, the Fifteenth corps moving to the right on the Shinbone Valley road, via Davis's Cross-Roads, and the Seventeenth corps on the direct road passing through Ringgold. Pursuant to Special Field Orders, No. 99, Headquarters Military Division Mississippi, the army m

ncidents of the Old South, which do not bear materially upon either of the two questions under consideration. In the year 1765, on the passage of the Stamp Act, Colonel John Ashe, Speaker of the House of Commons of North Carolina, informed Governor Tryon that the law would be resisted to every extent. On the arrival of the British sloop of war Diligence in the Cape Fear river, he and Colonel Waddell, at the head of a body of the citizens of New Hanover and Brunswick, marched down together, frttempt to land the stamped paper. Then they seized the boat of the sloop, and carried it with flags flying to Wilmington, and the whole town was illuminated that night. On the next day they marched to the Governor's house and demanded that Governor Tryon should desist from all attempts to execute the Stamp Act, and forced him to deliver up Houston, the Stampmaster for North Carolina. Having seized upon him, they carried him to the market-house, and there made him take an oath never to attemp

His son, Henry Eustace McCulloh, like his father, a zealous royalist, was collector of the port of Roanoke, as well as a member of the Council of North Carolina. [Tryon to Board of Trade, 28 April, 1767. Board of Trade, N. C., vol. 15.] On the second of December, 1768, H. E. McCulloh was appointed agent to the province of North Carolina by the Assembly [see America and West Indies, vol. 198], but the resolve, to which Governor Tryon had no objection, dropped in the Council. [Tryon to Hillsborough, 25 Feb. 1769.] He therefore acted for a time as agent of the Assembly. [Henry Eustace MccCulloh to Hillsborough, 5 June, 1768.] In the session of 1769 he was appointed agent for the province of North Carolina by an act of the Legislature. [1769, Nov. 27, Carolina Acts, 351.] This appointment was renewed 2 Dec. 1771. Henry McCulloh, the father, died, at a great age, in 1779. [Letter from D. L. Swain, late Governor of No

While the act was in abeyance, Hutchinson had, in letters to England, pleaded for the ancient privilege of the colonies with regard to internal taxes; b

Gadsden to Garth, Dec. 1765. It was the same throughout the country.

At Windham, in Connecticut, the freemen, in a multitudinous assembly, agreed with one another, to keep up, establish, and maintain the spirit of union and liberty; and for that end they recommended monthly county conventions, and also a general meeting of the colony. At New London, the inhabitants of the county of Dec. that name, holding a ma

The sort of irregulars he had in his mind, he explained in a letter to Carleton, who was just then expected to arrive at Quebec from England. I ask your opinion, wrote he, what measures would be most efficacious to raise a body of Canadians and Indians, and for them to form a junction with the king's forces in this province. The threat to employ the wild Indians in war against the colonists, had been thrown out at the time of Tryon's march against the Regulators of North Carolina, and may be traced still further back, at least to the discussions in the time of Shirley on remedies for the weakness of British power. This is the moment when it was adopted in practice. The com- Chap. X.} 1774. Sept. mission to Carleton, as governor of the province of Quebec under the act of parliament, conveyed full authority to levy, arm, and employ not the Canadians only, but all persons whatsoever, including the Indian tribes from t

In the name of the ministry, it lavished promises of favor and indulgence; extended the boundaries of the province at the north to the Connecticut river; and contrary to the sense of right of Lord Dartmouth, supported the claims of New York speculators to Vermont lands against the New Hampshire grants, under which populous villages had grown up. Both Tryon and Golden professed, moreover, a sincere desire to take part with the colony in obtaining a redress of all grievances, and an improvement of its constitution; and Dartmouth himself was made to express the hope of a happy accommodation upon some general constitutional plan. Such a union with the parent state, the New York committee declared to be the object of their earnest solicitude; even Jay held nothing in greater abhorrence than the malignant charge of aspiring after independence. If
lf-sacrifice, he might unbar the gates of light for mankind. On Sunday, the twenty fifth, all New York was in motion. Tryon, the royal governor, who had arrived the day before, was to land from the harbor; and Washington, accompanied by Lee and ll ages and both sexes, bent their eyes on him from the housetops, the windows, and the streets. Night had fallen before Tryon landed. Met by a company which he himself had commissioned, and by a few of the magistrates in military costume, he was y owned that the province would fall behind none in opposition to the king and parliament. Amazed and dejected at heart, Tryon masked his designs under an air of unconcern, and overflowed with bland professions. Washington, who instantly penetratehuyler, lulled by words of mildness which concealed the most wary and malignant activity, soon reported confidently, that Tryon would create no trouble. On the twenty-sixth, the provincial congress of New York, in their address to Washington, fro

On receiving his appointment as brigadier general he reluctantly bade adieu to his quiet scheme of life; perhaps, he said, for ever, but the will of an oppressed people, compelled to choose between liberty and slavery, must be obeyed. On the sixth of August, from Albany, he advised Chap. LII.} 1775. Aug. that Tryon, whose secret designs he had penetrated, should be conducted out of the way of mischief to Hartford. He reasoned justly on the expediency of taking possession of Canada, as the means of guarding against Indian hostilities, and displaying to the world the strength of the confederated colonies; it was enlarging the sphere of operations, but a failure would not impair the means of keeping the command of Lake Champlain. Summoned by Schuyler to Ticonderoga, he was attended as far as Saratoga by
