My by Whose tmihtary talents it was prepared; to Col.
Jolinson ane his mounted volunteers, whose impetuous

and to the spin of the voluntecremilitia, equally brave
and patriotic, who bore an integesting part in the scene;
more espe lally to the chief Magistrat of Kentucky at the
head of them, whose hervism, sigualized in the war which
established the independence of his country, sought at an
advanced age, a share in hardships and battles, for main-
taining its rights and its safe'y.
The effect of these successes has been to rescue the inha-
bitants of Michigan from their oppressions, aggravated by
gross infractions of the capitulation, which subjected them
to a foreign power: to alienate the savaves of numerous
tribes from the enemy, by whom they were disappointed
and abandoned ; and to relieve an extensive region of
country from amerc.less warfare, which desolated its
frontiers, and imposed on its citizens the most harrassing
In consequence of our naval supcriority on Lake Onta-
rig, and the opportunity afforded by it for concentrating

the euemy on the St. Lawrence. Such, however, was the

that the prospect at one time so favourable, was not rea
The cruelty of the enemy, in enlisting the savages into
a war with a nation desirous of mutual emulation in witi-
gating its calamitics, has not been confined to any one
quarter.— Wherever they could be turned against us, no
exertious toetlect it have been spared. On our South
' Western border, the Creck tribes, who, ycildiog to our
View original presevering cndeayors, were gradually acquiring more ci-
vilized habits, became the unfortunate victims of scducti-
on. A we in that quarter has been the consequence, in-
furtated by a bleody fanaticism recently propagated a-
mone them.
It was necessary to crush such awar before it could
spread among the contiguous tribes, and Ecfore it could
favor enterprizes of theenemy into that vicinity. With
this view a force was called into the service of the United
States, from the States of Georgia and Tennessee, which,
with the nearest regular (roops, and other corps from. the
Mississippi territory, might not omy chastise the savaces
luto present peace, but make a lasting impression ou their
fea rs.
The progress of theexprdition, so farasit is yet known,
corresponds with the martial zeal wilh which itis espous-
ed; and the best hopes of a satisfactory issue, are antho-
rised by the complete success with which a well planned
enterorize was executed against a body of hostile savages,
by adetacinment of the volunteer militia of Tennessec
under the gaileat command of Gen, Coite, and by a still
