Gen. Otis was chosen to command the troops sent to the Philippine Islands because of his reputation as a thorough and reliable soldier. That his conduct of the campaign which resulted in the discomfiture of Aguinaldo should have excited the adihiration of foreign military observers is only what was to be expected from so skilled a warrior. With the help of the trained and experienced officers under his command, such as Major Gens. Thomas M. Anderson and Arthur MacArthur, Brigadier Gens. M. P; Miller, Harrison Gray Otis, Samuel Ovenshine, Irving Hale, Charles King and others, Gen. Otis has succeeded in fashioning into an army the inexperi enced volunteers who form the cjiief part of his force, and made the most effective use of their admirable fighting qualities. His experience furnishes another illus tration of the truth, which should never be lost sight of, that it is the military ex perience transmitted from one war to another that has been our chief reliance in time of danger. Our military experience of 1801-0- 5 was an inheritance from the war with Mexico and the Indian wars, and so back to the revolution, when the soldiers trained in the border wars of the early settlements and in the French and Indian wars were among our most skilled military leaders. Gen. Otis is a native of Maryland, having been born in Frederick, Md., March 25, 1838. His family removed to Rochester, N. Y., when he was quite young, and he was brought up on a farm just out of Rochester, on what is known as Lyell road. He was graduated at the University of Rochester in 1858, and must have stood high in the class, for those who knew him then recall the fact that he took part in exhibitions when scholarship was required to secure a place. He was in his senior year President of one of the literary societies into which the students are divided, the Pith-oniaHe was admitted, to the bar one year after his graduation from the university, and was subsequently graduated at the Harvard Law School in 1801.

The plays above mentioned SKETCH OF HIS LIFE AND CAMPAIGNS A public meeting of the inhabitants of St. Patrick's Division was held in the Foresters' Hall, Merchants' quay, Dublin, for the purpose of discussing the financial relations between Great Britain and Ireland. Copies of the speech delivered by Mr. Field, M. P., in the House of Commons last July on the overtaxation of Ireland were presented to those who attended the meeting. Mr. William Field, M. P., presided. The Chairman said, in accordance with n resolution of the Financial Reform League, that every member of Parliament should call a meeting in his own division to discuss that question he had summoned that meeting. According to the verdict of the Royal Commission they were overtaxed to the extent ,'2,750,000 annually. If that money were spent in Ireland it would help considerably to increase the prosperity of the country. He took his hearers back to the time of the Irish Parliament and the employment that was then given in making public works. After the act of union, however, they had to pay higher taxes without reaping any benefit from expenditure of Imperial funds in Ireland. From this is would be seen how materials ly this question affected the working classes. He proceeded to show how the financial clauses of the act of union were evaded when the amalgamation of the exchequers took place in 1817. He wished to impress upon them that according as the population decreased in ireianutne taxation increaseu. in ion, with a populbtion of 8,000,000, their taxation was 3,000,000, and in 1898, with a population of 4,544,000, their tax ot"r.i wraa SaiARftnn Totlno tlii Vir. torianrar the3ftaxation was in '07 Uiree times theamount per head it was in 1837, when Queen Victoria ascended the throne.

It is safe to say parties attending will receive full value in the amusements offered. The following cast. of characters. forjbojjpfayj e soldiers in the Philippine Islands, and worthy to be their leader is that veteran of the rebellion and Indian wars, Major-GeEl well Stephen Otis, Brigadier-GenerUnited States Army and Major General of Volunteers. Gen. Otis is a soldier educated in that most thorough of all schools the school of war. He was year of his age and in the twenty-fourt- h just entering upon the profession of law when hi September, 1802, he abandoned the law to pursue the career of arms, which he has ever since followed. It was the good fortune of the young Otis to receive his early training under one of the best soldiers in our army at that time. This was Patrick H. O'Rorke, an Irishman by birth, whose parents were settled in Rochester, N. V. When the One Hundred and Fortieth Regiment of New York Volunteer Infantry was mustered into the service at Rochester in September, 1862, O'Rorke, who was a graduate of the Military Academy, was given command of it, and Otis, who had raised one of the companies (Company E), was appointed Captain of that company. The regiment was composed of excel lent material, and O'Rorke, whose fifteen mouths of war service had transformed him into a veteran, soon made it d and most effective one of the regiments in the Army of the Potomac. With this regiment Otis served during the whole of his career in the volunteer army during the civil war.

The various casualties finally left Otis, who seemed to bear a charmed life, in command of the regular brigade; but his turn came at last, for he was severely wounded in the battle of Chapel House, near Petersburg, Va., October 1, 1804. His wound was so severe that he was not subsequently returned to Juty, and he was honorably discharged from, the volunteer service January 24, 1805, bearing with him the brevets of Colonel and Brigadier General for "gallant and meritorious service" at Spottsylvania and Chapel J House, Va. jof the Twenty-secon- d On the organization Regiment of Infantry of the regular army from a battalion of the Thirteenth, Otis was appointed Lieutenant Colonel of the new regiment, his commission dating July 28, 8G0. On March 2, 1807, he received the brevet of Colonel in the regular army for! gallant services at Spottsylvania. On die death of Col. George Sykes, of the Twentieth Infantry, at Fort Brown, Tex., Otis was appointed Colonel, and assumed. Command of the Twentieth at Fort Browfl March 31, 1880. From 1807 to 1881 he birved against the A Indians. At the time of the Custer massacre, in October, 1870, Otis,, whoiwas the Lieutenon ant Colonel of the Twenty-seconduty at the lake postspn our northern frontier, was ordered tothe front in command of six companies of the regiment. While passing down the Yellowstont his command was attackea by the Indians near the mouth of the Powder river. The troops were lauded find the enemy driven into the hills, Uieir camp being burned. On August 7j 1870, Col. Otis joined Gen. Terry and inarched with him up the Rosebud to reinforce the columns of Gen. Crook, finally taking post at Glendive, Mon. A wagon train sent from that post, under an escort of four companies of infantry October 10, 1870, was attacked by a heavy force of Indians and compelled to return to'.jfolendive. Here Col.

This was essentially a workiuginen's question, because if they had the management of their own affairs, and if restitution were made of some portion of the "200,000,000 that had been taken from them in overtaxation, a great deal of prosperity would In his opinion come to the country. some working practical scheme ought to be put forward, and he believed a scheme of land purchase should be brought to the House of Commons, and also a scheme of railway purchase and a grant to erect workmen's dwellings. An earnest constructive policy should be adopted to obtain justice. They were the most heavily taxed country in Europe, and. yet they were laboring under a per petual coercion act. If public opinion were educated on this question, their claim for restitution would be irresisti ble. Mr. Hutchinson, T. C. proposed: "That in the opinion of thu meeting of St. Patrick's Division, immediate measures should be adopted to insure restitution and readjustment in the matter of the overtaxation of Ireland." He expressed the opinion that this agitation would convert many Unionists to home rule. This question had to be fought out by persistent agitation. There was no use in the Irish members attacking the government unless they were backed up by the people of Ireland. Alderman Davin seconded the motion. He characterized Mr. Field's speech as one of the most practical he had listened to for a long time. Unless the men of Ireland were prepared to take a definite stand upon this matter their talk was all balderdash". There was no use in bringing Lords and Earls to speak on this question they wanted some practical proof of these gentlemen's earnestness. A definite programme, setting out their demand should be put forward, and these gentlemen mould, if in earnest, support it. The fact that the breweries and distilleries were the only industry in Dublin was a blot and disgrace to English rule in this country. They were entitled to have the act of union carried out. If a definite policy was adopted at the forthcoming meeting the country would indorse it. Bascon Edward Howard .. Leonard Trevor .Frank Angermeier Majijr Tonips Geo. A. McCrann Martin D.

Father MacFadden is a native of Gweedore, the only priest in Ireland who openly defied Balfour's famous coercion act, and as a result was twice imprisoned. His lecture deals with the thrilling scenes through which Ireland passed in the home rule struggle, Father MacFadden is a pronounced separationist. He believes in the independence of Ireland and in adopting the same methods employed by Washington to secure the blessings which we enjoy. He should have a large audience. A HANDSOME PRIZE. While on a trip through the East last week Ven Rev. Father Logan, of the Dominican church, was the recipient of a handsome pony and cart from some of his numerous admiring mends. Not having any particular use for it himself, he has decided to put it up to be raffled off at the Dominican church bazaar, which begins Easter Monday, April 3, in Some of the Dominican school-housthe young ladies of the parish are already beginning to look at the pony and cart with covetous eyes, one in particular, Miss Katie B.

Mr. Michael Collins, 2015 Lytle street, is out for the Democratic nomination for Councilman from the Eleventh ward.

Rock iii Jeffersonvllle on St. Patrick's evening, Cieutcriatit Colonel" of the regiment (he was the result of desperate fighting, in which his superiors lost their lives on the battlefield; first O'Rorke and then George Ryan, both graduates of the Military Academy, and splendid soldiers, whom to serve with was in itself a liberal education in the military art. No regiment on the field at Gettysburg rendered more important and conspicuous service than that to which Otis was attached. Warren had been O'Rorke's perceptor at the Military Academy, and when his quick military perception showed him that the unoccupied Little Round Top was the key to Meade's position'on the left, it was to O'Rorke that Warren turned to assist him in securing it. It was the 140th ttiat occupied those heights just a moment in advance of the Confederates, and held it then until reinforcements came and Little Round Top was made secure. "O'Rorke's soldiers," says theComte de Paris, in his history of Gettysburg, by a really providential coincidence, reach at full run this summit, which Warren points out to them as the ciladal to be preserved at any cost. At their feet lies the vast battlefield, whence are heard vague noises and savage cries, the rattling of the musketry, the cannon's roar, and where all the incidents of the combat are seen through a cloud of smoke; but they have no leisure to contemplate this spectacle, for they find themselves face to face with Lee's soldiers, who are climbing the hill on the opposte side. A few minutes' delay among the Federals would have sufficed to put the Confederates in possession of the summit. Never' perhaps was seen the winner of a race secure such a prize at so little cost. And yet to those immediately con cerned the loss was heavy. The One Hundred and Fortieth left more than 133 of their comrades, including many offi cers, among the dead and wounded on those heights, and among the dead was the valiant O'Rorke, who fell a victim to his promptness indecision and his vigor in action at a critical moment. Col. O'Rorke had a presentment that he would fall at Gettysburg, and Otis, to whom he made it known, could not reason him out of it. As the regiment was ascending the steep hill a bullebfrom a sharp-shootlocated in "Devil's Den" struck him, and he fell dead ill the arms of Otis. At the battle of the Wilderness the 140th New York saw some of the hottest fighting, losing 225 men. Otis, who had meantime risen to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, commanded the picket line of the Fifth Corps, which brought on the engagement. The regiment was soon under a fire before which it melted like snow. Eleven of its commissioned of ficers were killed or wouuded, not one of staff remained the and of the Captains only three were left. Three days later Ryan was killed at Spottsylvania, and Otis succeeded to the command of the regiment as Lieutenant Colonel. From the Rapidan to the Jamas the regiment, led by Otis, was constantly un was never a Major) I mean all some powder. Wish you would write as soon as you can. Col. Otis wrote to the effect that he had no intention of turning back, and if the Indians wanted another fight he was there to accommodate them. The In- diaus gathered as for a fight, but thought better of it, and sent in a party under a flag of truce, who, after some talk, de cided that they had enough of Otis and preferred to surrender, which they did. When, in 1881, it was decided to es tablish a school of infantry and cavalry at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., Col. Otis was chosen to organize it, and he remained in command of the school and the post of Fort Leavenworth until 1885. The General is justly proud of the work he did in establishing upon a secure foun dation this school for army post-gradua- the rations you have cot and Bun. officers. When relieved from the command of the Leavenworth school Col. Qtis returned to the command of his regiment, the Twentieth Infantry, at Fort Assini- boine, Montana. He also had command of the post, one of the largest in the army, including several compauies of cavalry. On October 1, 1890, he was detailed for duty as superintendent of the recruiting service, and November '28, 1803, was promoted to the rank of Brigadier General, passing over the heads of officers of longer service. On December 1 following Gen. Otis was ordered to duty in command of the Department of the Columbia, with headquarters at Vancouver, Wash. In taking leave of his regiment he called attention to the fact that during the fourteen years of his command he had never found occasion to charge one of its officers with dereliction of duty, a fact which testifies to the character of the Colonel as well as to that of the men he commanded. When, in 1890, the Secretary of War required the assistance of an army .officer for the' important work of revising the army regulations, the statute law of the arm, Gen. Otis was ordered to Washington, and he Bpent some mouths at the War Department engaged upon that work. In April, 1897, he was transferred to the command of the Department of Colorado.

The Board of Prison Commissioners met Tuesday night and awarded the contract to the Albiu Company, of Louisville, for the labor of all unemployed convicts at the Frankfort and Eddyville peniten tiaries at forty cents per day for each man. The lease will include the labor of 50 to 150 convicts, and will put to work d every man in the two prisons for the first time in years. This is the same rate at which convicts leased by the Martin Company are leased under the big chair contract lease. The Albin Company will work the convicts in the manufacture of furniture. The monthly accounts were approved and routine business attended to. The permanent election of a "deputy warden was postponed until the next meeting. Chief Clerk J. L.

Manila, the capital and metropolis of the Philippines, is situated on the Island of Luzon, at the mouth and on the left bank of the River Pasig. The present fortifications ami the walls and embattle-ment- s of the old city were built by Chi nese labor in 1590. The walls are two and a half miles long and mounted with old and useless cannon. The old city is almost surrounded bv water. On the north is the River Pasig, on the west the sea, while moats flank the other two sides. These moats are connected with the river by sluices. Until 1852 the e connecting the old city with the new was raised at night and the city closed, presenting the curious fact of a feudal Spanish city in the heart of the tropics. In the citadel are the Government offices; also the port, telegraph and custom offices, various convents and colleges, an artillery depot, the cathedral and eleven other churches. This part of thej:it'Dresents a dilap idated.and.medit evalappearanceT fleuuTiuirrCHvstreets have a somber monastic aspect, and one, therefore, is not surprised to find that the gloomy superstitious of the fifteenth century hold Cimmerian sway there, undisturbed by the dawn of science. Manila Bay is thirty miles from north miles to south and about twenty-fiv- e wide. On each side the entrance are Ten miles steep volcanic mountains. from Manila, near the entrance of the bay, lies Cavite, which contains about 5,000 people. Here, also, is the arsenal, a patent slip and a garrison of 500 men. In the channel lies the Island of Corregi-do- r, 040 feet high, nnd just beyond the Island of Caballo, 420 feet high, both fortified. On each island stands a lighthouse. Manila, like Batavia and Calcutta, is a great trade center. Biuondo, on the northern shore of the Pasig, and opposite the old city, the business quarters. Here are the large tobacco factories, which employ about 10,000 men, women and children. One factory alone employes 2,000. The Manila wrappers and Manila cigars and cheroots are famed the world over. The employes in these factories earn upon an average fifteen cents per day. With this they are able to live well, for food is cheap and rent even cheaper. The main street of Biuondo is the Escolta, and here are situated the commercial warehouses, the bazaars and the European shops. The Escolta in the daytime presents an animated appearance.

A like remark applies to our demand that tithes should be cleared and registered at the expense of the State, in the first instance, for no very rapid progress can be made with land purchase transactions until the process of clearing and registering tithes has been simplified and cheapened. The present government passed a local registration of title act for Ireland In 1891, but itseems In danger of becoming a dead ,letter, and this fact seems to be due to the refusal of the Treasury to equip the department with a sufficient staff to enable the act to be gradually brought to general - Smith-Barr- y 111 narrow-minde- d donderry and by Capt. Cochrane, D. L. (Donegal), who said the present Government was the worst they ever had. The landlords had loyally supported the Government and the Union, and now their thanks were to see those they called rebels in their place. The resolution was carried unanimously. The third resolution asked the favorable consideration of the Government for the following proposals: 1. Measures to lighten the burden of mortgages nnd other private charges, and to facilitate their ultimate redemption, viz: (a) Loans to redeem well secured mortgages, etc., repayable by a terminable annuity of 3 per cent.; (b) legislation to facilitate the establishment (in every part of the United Kingdom) of mortgage debenture institutions on the model of the Prussian landschaften, or of the Hanoverian or Swiss or Hungarian State mortgage banks; (c) legislation to facilitate the conversion of mortgages, etc., Into land debentures. SL The immediate reduction and ultimate extinction of ecclesiastical tithe rent charges. 3. The outstanding portions of all Boards of Works' loans should be ascertained and made repayable on same terms as loans made to tenants under the laud purchase acts. 4. Loans on same terms as under the land purchase acts to euable landlords to purchase crown rents, quit rents, church perpetuities and lay tithe rent charge. 5. The clearing and registering of titles at the expenee of the State, the cost to be recouped by fees on future transactions. 0. State advances to enable landlords to purchase tenants' interests by voluntary arrangements between landlords and tenants. Lord Castletown, of Upper Ossory, in proposing it, said he intended introducing shortly a bill the object of which was to give a solid and more safe aspect to land proprietory and tenancy in this country. It would deal with the establishment of loan banks such as the Prussian Landschaften or the Hungarian State Mortgage Bank, and there was no intention to encroach on ordinary banking institutions, as they were merely for the protection of land owners and land tenants. Mr. W. H. Boyd, D. I,. (Donegal), seconded the resolution, and it was sup-- , ported by Mr. Savage French (Cork), W. D. Webber and Rev. II. Humphreys. The resolution was put and carried unanimously. . The next resolution asked for an amendment of the law and procedure under the Irish land purchase acts to mitigate the loss nf income usually incurred by landlords who sell to their tenants under these acts, and it suggested the reforms recommended by the Fry Commission: That the Land Commission should restrict themselves to deciding how much they might be willing to advance in each case, and not place difficulties in the way of tenants agreeing to pay and secure a further sum; the authorization of alternative forms of land purchase so as to meet the different circumstances of the different cases,and different parts of the country. It was proposed by .the- Right Hon. Henry Bruen, D. I ( Carlo w) and seconded by Mr. G. de L. Willis, each of whom explained at much length the benefits which the suggestions, if adopted by the Government, would, confer on the landlords, and they would nlso affect ther 1 piece-worker- s, C - t ICEODTJOICY MOORE'S CREEK, Tories Rallied for the Klntf mid the Irish mid Patriots Itoutcd Them. Before the Battle of Lexington People of North Carolina Ousted the British. be loyal, and to other parts of the colony asking for aid against the rebels, and he wrote to Gen. Gage in Boston, soliciting arms and ammunition. This letter was intercepted and the intentions of the Governors becoming known, the people were roused up to the highest pitch of indignation. They marched to his house, carried off six cannon which he had planted there fof his defense, and Martin fled in terror to Port Johnson, near Wilmington. Prom here he issued a procla mation against the patriots, denouncing them as rebels and incendiaries and traitors to King George. On Auguest 20, 1775, the Provincial Congress met at Hillsborough, and they ordered the Governor's proclamation to be burned by the common hangman. They also set about raising two regiments of 500 men each for the defense of the liberties of the province. The.command of the first regiment was given to Co1 James Moore, of Hanover, the second to Col. Robert Home, of Brunswick. Ten companies of minute men, each company to number fifty men, were also directed to be raised. The people were now thoroughly aroused. The news of the great events ocurring in Massachusetts was wafted to the patriots of the South. The hopes and aspirations of the Northern colonists were shared by the patriots of Carolina, and to show that they were in earnest, the latter went to work and any smith who could forge a blade or sharpen a warlike instrument was called into service, until the whole colony looked like one vast military workshop. Gov. Martin had not been idle while all this was going on. He dispatched emissaries among the Scotch and Regulators endeavoring to win them to the cause of the King. He was in momentary expectation of the arrival of Sir Henry Clinton with troops from the North, and he had learned that Sir Peter Parker, with the British, fleet, having Lord Cornwallis and a considerable force on board, were destined for America. These tidings gave the loyal Governor great pleasure. He knew if he could raise a force of Loyalists and keep them in the heart of the colony until the arrival of the cxpec(ed reinforcements, the rebellion would be immediately crushed in North Carolina. He therefore used every effort in gaining over the Scotchmen to the royal standard. At Cross Creek lived Donald McDonald, a veteran soldier, who possessed great influence over his countrymen. He fought at the famous battle of Culloden in Scotland, where Charles Stuart, the "Young Predender' ' to the throne of Great Britain, was completely defeated and forced to flee to the Continent. McDonald was fortunate enough to escape from the hands of the bloodthirsty soldiers of the Duke of Cumberland, and went to America, settlineiu North Carolina. He became a traitor to the cause of liberty, and took service with the very power that had oppressed his native land. He received the commission of brigadier general from Gov. Martin, and, raising the standad of King George III. at Cross Creek (now Fayetteville), called upon his countrymen to assemble in their strength and prove their loyalty to the throne and their devotion to the King. They readily obeyed. In the course of a few days more than a thousand Scotchmen were mustered under the banner of McDonald, and many Tories and others flocking in, the number was soon swelled to eighteen hundred. Allen McDonald served as captain under McDonald. He was the husband of the celebrated Flora McDonald, friend of Charles Stuart, who aided that unfortunate Prince in eluding the English hirelings of the Duke of Cumberland, who were pursuing him all over Scotland. Allen McDonald and his wife used all their influence in bringing their countrymen to the standard of the Scotch general. Col. Moore, who was then at Hanover, received intelligence of the gathering of the loyalists and summoning a band of patriots to his assistance, in all about 1,100 men, marched toward Cross Creek to meet McDonald, and encamped within twelve miles of the" Scotchman's headquarters. Here he fortified his camp, and sent out small detachments of men and skillful scouts and spies, who cut off all communication between McDonald and Gov. Martin. McDonald upon being informed of Moore's approach set out to dislodge him. When within a few miles he halted, and sending 'forward a messenger with the Governor's proclamation, and at the same time urged upon Col. Moore to prevent bloodshed by joining the King's standard. In case of refusal he threatened the patriots with the chastisement due to rebels found in arms against their King, Moore answered firmly and defiantly that he was engaged in a holy cause, from which he could not be seduced, and threatened him with the same punishment which he had proposed to inflict on the patriots. Moore delayed his answer for some time, in order that a messenger whom he had dispatched to Col. Caswell, the commander of the minute men, might have time to deliver his dispatch. McDonald resolved to give him battle, but before he had time to carry out his intention, his scouts brought intelligence of the rapid gathering of the minute men around him. At the same time he was informed that Sir Henry Clinton and Lord William Campbell were hourly ex pected in the Cape Fear river. The Scotchman now became afraid that if he risked a battle it might prove disastrous, and changing his mind he broke up his camp and marched toward Wilmington to effect a junction with the Governor and his friends. McDonald started at midnight and pushed on at a rapid pace, over swollen streams, rough hills and deep morasses, hotly pursued by Col. Moore. Thus two days and nights passed over pursuers and pursued, the brave Moore using every ef fort to overtake the renegade and his Tory army; the latter, having the start, straining every nerve to widen the dis tance between them, and reach their friends. On the evening of the third day McDonald crossed South river, one of the tributaries of the Cape Fear, and was congratulating himself on soon reaching his destination, when, as he approached Moore's Creek, he saw before him the minute men of Dobbs, Craven, Johnston and Wake counties, with battalions from Newbern and Wilmington, in all about 1,000 men, commanded by Cols. Caswell and LilHugton. They were out in search of the Royalists, and McDonald had stumbled upon their camp. The latter was now in n critical situation. The Rfrnnrr ininntp tnpii nf Hip Netise reiriou.' e o their officers wearing silver crescents upon their hats, inscribed with the stirring words, "Liberty or Death," were in front, and Col. Moore, with his regulars, was close upon his rear. To fly was impossible; to fight was the only alterna- 'IS tive. The two armies lay within sight of each other during the night. The Scotch removed the bridge across Moore's Creek, ' stationed their forces so as to command the passage and the roads, and threw up breastworks before morning. The patriots slept upon their arms, ready at the signal call to leap upon the foe. As the morning dawned, the Scotch bagpipes were heard calling McDonald and his eighteen hundred loyalists to arms. The patriots stood ready. The Scotch, led by Capt. McLeod, rushed for ward to the attack. There was a small entrenchment near the bridge, empty and seemingly deserted; toward this the Highlanders rushed, thinking the patriots J IRISH AMERICAN !

TO THE PATRONS OF THE First Battle of the American Revolution Fought in 1771. HISTORY NOT p Record the Candidate ou the First Line, Division on the Second. 'f We have made arrangements whereby scribers can procure a IB sub- GENERALLY KNOWN. For years previous to the breaking out of the Revolution the people of North Carolina were in constant revolution against the brutal tyranny of their British Governors. In 17C0 an organization or confederation known as the "Regulators," was formed for the purpose of resisting the oppressions of the infamous Gov. Tryon. A vigorous and successful war was carried on for several years, but on May 10, 1771, the patriots met with a disastrous defeat on the river Allamance, which compelled them to give up the struggle for the time being, and submit to the conqueror. Gov. 'f ryon's conduct after the battle of Allamance is characteristic of British methods of suppressing a "rebellion." ''With the implacable spirit of revenge," says the historian, Lossing, "he spent his wrath upon his prisoners, and some of his acts were worthy only of a barbarian. Having rested a few days near the battleground he went on as far as the Yadkin, and, after issuing a proclamation of pardon to all who should, lay down their arms and take the oath of allegiance before July 10, except a tew whom he named, he made a circuitous route through Stokes, Rockingham and Guilford counties back to Hillsborough, exhibiting his prisoners in chains in the villages through which he passed. He exacted an oath of allegiance from the people, levied contributions of provisions, chastised those who dared to offend him, and at Hillsborough he offered a large reward for the bodies of Husband (the leader of the Regulators) and other Regulators, 'dead or alive.' On his march for trying civil he held court-marticases, burned houses and destroyed the crops of inoffensive people. Xt Hillsfor the borough he held n court-martitrial of his prisoners. Twelve were condemned to suffer death; six were reprieved and the others were hung, among whom was Capt. Messer, whose life had been spared a few days before by the intercession of his little child. His thirst for revenge satiated, Tryon returned to his palace at Newburn, where he remained but a short time, having been called to the administration of affairs in the Province of New York'" Josiah Martin succeeded Tryon as GoHis administration was better vernor. than his predecessor's. He tried to conciliate the Regulators, and was successful in enlisting many of them on the side of the Government. But the vast majority of the patriots held aloof, hoping that an occasion would soon arise that would give them another opportunity of asserting their independence and overthrowing British rule. They were not disappointed. Before 1774 all the northern colonies were in open rebellion against the tyranny of George III. and his ministers, and a general outbreak against British misgovernraent seemed imminent. During the summer of 1774 large numbers of the inhabitants of North Carolina held public meetings, in which they signified their approval of the course pursued by their Northern brethren, and indorsed the proposal of the people of Massachusetts for the calling of a Continental Congress. A general meeting of delegates from the several towns of North Carolina was proposed to be held at Newburn on August 25, 1774. Although the Governor "proclaimed" the meeting, it was held and was largely attended. John Harvey, late speaker of the Assembly of the colony, presided, and resolutions were adopted denouncing taxatiou without representation; reprobating the tea and other duties; expressing great sympathy for the people of Massachusetts, and condemning the Boston Port bill as a "cruel infringement of the rights and privileges of the people." The delegetesalso signed agreement, and exa pressed their hearty approval of the proposition for a general Congress. In April, 1775, Gov. Martin, by proclamation, fixed a day for the assembling of the Legislature. John Harvey, who presided over tbeNewbern Convention, summoried the people to meet as a "Provincial Congress" on the same day. Martin tried to prevent the meeting of the people's deputies, but failed. He also failed in his attempt to keep the two Assemblies distinct. He denounced the Con tinental Congress as "seditious and wicked,1" "highly offensive to his majesty," and called upon the people "to remember their allegiance and to faithfully maintain it." His appeals were in vain, for both Assemblies concurred in approving of the proceeding of the Continental Congress of 1774, and iri appointing dele gates to a new one to meet in Philadel phia in May, 1776. The Governor and the representatives of the people were now fairly at issue, The latter organized a Provincial Con gress, and, assuming the functions of Government, sent forth an address to the people, recommending the adoption of measures for resistance similar to those pursued in other colonies. Martin was now thoroughly alarmed, and set to work to organise a military force to crush the "rebels." He sent messengers to Crow Creek, where there was a large settlement of Scotch colonists, who were supposed to JOHN P.

I coined the breastworks, when uo from their concealment sprang the patriots, who poured a fearful volley into the Scotchmen's teeth, and leaped upon them with the bayonet. A desperate struggle now ensued, and hand to hand they grappled for more than ten minutes. McLeod was killed at the first volley. Campbell, the next in command, soon followed, but the Scotch, conscious of their superior numbers, still fought, believing defeat impossible from such a small force as was arrayed against them. They were soon undeceived, how ever. Lieut. Slocum, with a small baud of patriots, having found a fordable part of the stream, pushed rapidly across, and penetrating a swamp op its western bank, fell like a thunderbolt on the tear of the Scotch, spreading consternatfon and terror through their ranks. The loyal Scotch, throwing away their bagpipes and the royal standard, fled, broken, routed and pursued by the victorious rebels. To add more terror to their flight, the troops of the brave Moore were heard advancing, and soon the cheers of his men were heard, as they came in sight of the battlefield. The Scotch lost seventy men in killed and wounded and many prisoners. Among the latter was Donald McDonald, and also Allen, the husband of Flora. The patriots captured thirteen wagons, !W0 guns and shotbags, about 150 swords and dirks and 1,500 rifles. The patriots had only two wounded. "The effect of this defeat of the loyal ists," says the historian Lossing, "was of vast importance to the patriots' cause in North Carolina. It exhibited the courage and skill of the defenders of liberty, and completely broke the spirit of the loyalsts. It prevented a general or ganization of the Tories and their junction with the forces of Sir Henry Clinton which arrived in the Cape Fear in May, upon which the royal power in the South depended for vitality. The opposers of that power were encouraged, and the timid and wavering were compelled to make a decision. The kindness extended to the prisoners and their families won the esteem of all, and many loyalists were converted to the Republican faith by the noble conduct of the victors. The plans of the Governor and of Sir Henry Clinton and Lord William Campbell were, for the time, completely frustrated, and Martin soon afterward abdicated the Government and took lefuge on board the Bristol, the flagship of Sir Peter Royal government in North Parker. Carolina now ceased forever, and a brighter era in the history of the State was opened." FOR THE LEGISLATURE. St, Nicholas Hole A. O. IT.
