HARRISON'S INVASION OF CANADA.
Tho following is the " gcneial order" of the
27th of September, which wo promised in our
last. In its lucid ninutcness, the rendu will
discover how it was that Harrison preserved, or
rather created, the most perfect order in nn nrmy
composed emphatically of raw troops. It will,
moreover, nllhough written in tho wilderness.
compare advantageously, in no'mt of s: vie and I
diction, with the best cabinet miner ever rii-rn.-ii el :
by Martin Van Buren, or any oilier wit h&irM
adversary of the accomplished old General. Yut
hisis tho man who is denounced ns an iniueriL',
end who recently i heard a man, of some c.o i.
squence among the Van B jrcnites, denounce for
having b.ten absent, and leaving all this to be
dono by Governor Shelby !
" As it is the intention of the general to 'mil the
army on the enemy's coast, the following will
the order of debarkation, of march, and of battle.
The right wing of the army will be composed oi
the Kentucky volunteers under command of hi. ex
ceiiuuey governor Shelby, uctinj us major genera I
Ihe left wing, of the light, corps of lieuteuaut colo
nel Ball, and the brigades of generals M'Ari.'mr
and Cass. This arrangement is male w ith a view
lo the localities of the ground, on which the troop
will have to act, and the compaction of the enemy's
force, and is calculated in marching up the. lake or
trait, to place the regular troops in the open ground
on the hike, where it is probable they will he op
posed by British regulars, and the Kentucky volun
teers in the woods, which probably will be occupied
by the enemy's militia and Indians. When tne
igti-1 is given for putting to shore, tho corps ot
lieutenant colonel Ball will precede the left winy;,
and the regiment of volunteer rillemen under coin
nel Simrall the right wing. These corps will hind
with the utmost celerity consistent with the preser
vation of good order, and as soon as landed will
eize the most favorable position fur annoying the
enemy, and covering the debarkation of the troop
of the line. General Cass's brigade will follow
lieutenant colonel Ball's corps, and general Culines'
the regiment of colonel S:iiirull. The other regi
ments will follow and form in succession oltor
those which precede them, the right wing with its
left in front, displaying lo the right, and the k-i'i
wing with its right in front displaying to tho left
The brigades of generals King, Allen, and Cald
well will form successively to the right of genera!
Calmes. The brigades of generals Al'Artiiur anu
Chiles will form the reserve, under the immediato
command of general JPArthur. The General wil.
command in person the brigades of Cass and
Calmes, assisted by major-general Henry. 11U ex
cellency governor Shelby will have the immediate
command of the three brigades on the right, as
sisted by major general Desha. As soon as the
troops disembark, the boats are to be immediately
sent back to the fleet. It will bo observed, that the
order of landing here prescribed is somewhat thai
of direct cchellon, displayed into line upon the ad
vanced corps of the right and left wings. It is the
intention of the General, however, that all the
troops which are provided with boats should land
Irj asquick succession as possible; and the general
officers commanding towards the extremities nf tic
lino are authorised to deviate frum this arrange
ment, to counteract any movement of the enemy. Is
landing any parts of their commands previous t"
the forming of the corps which are herein directed
to precede them. The corps of lieutenant colune!
Ball, and the volunteer regiment of colonel Simrali,
will maintain the position they occupy on landing,
until the troops of the line are formed to supper
them ; they will then retire through the intervals ut
the line, or to the flanks, and form in the rear of
the line.' A detachment of artillery with a fix
pounder, four pounder, and howitzer, will hind with
the advanced light corps. The rest of the artillery
will be held in reserve ami landed at such point
as major Wood may direct. The point of landing
for the reserve under brigadier general M'Arlhur
cannot now be designated. It will be made in sup
port nnypart of the line which nmy require' aid, it
be funned on the flanks as l ircimisti.iices may re
quire. The arrangements for landing the tro.in
will be made entirely under the direction of on offi
cer of the navy, whom commodore Terry has teen
to obliging as to furnish for that purco-o. The de
barkation of the troops will be covered by the can
non of the vessels. The troops being landed nn.!
the enemy driven off, or not opposina the landing,
the army will change its front to the left, and form
in orderof battle in the following in-inner. The
two brigades of regular troops, and two nf the vol
unteers, to be formed in two lines at right angle,
to the shore of the lake. The brigades ef" .viier-il-M'Arlhur
nnd Cnlmes to form the front line, nr.:'
those of Cass and Chiles the second line, the rcgu
lar troops still on the loft, and that flank re-ting on
the lake shore. The distance between the two line
will te three hundred yards. The remaining thre
volunteer brigades will be drawn up in a single Km
of two ranks, at rifcht angles to the lines in front,
its head on the right of llie front line, forming n
erotchet en poteuce with that line, and extending
beyond the second line. Tho corps nf lieutenant
colonel Ball will form the advance of the left wing
at tho same distance of BOO Jynrds, and colonel
Simrall' regiment that of the right wing at the
ume distance. Some light pieces o. artillery wil'
b placed in the roud lending uri the hike, and a:
such other points as mnjor Wood may direct
When llie order is given for inarching, tliP first ace
second lines will advance by files from the heads of
eowpanies, or in other words tho-e two line will
form two columns marching hv their flanks by com
panies t entire distances. The three brigades on
the right flank will be faced on the left nnd marched
forwards, the head of this column still forming ni
fotence wi'h the front line. Ii is probable that il.r
two brigade f tho tront line w ill extend from tin
lakes some distance into the woods on the right
(lank, and it is desirable that it should be so ; Inn
vhould it be otherwise, and the crotchet or angle hi
lt any time in the open ground, governor Shelby
will immediately extend the front line to the right
by adding to it bs many companion of the lendini!
brigade of tho flank column as will bring the angle
end consequently the left column itself completely
within the woods. It is to be presumed that the
enemy will make their attack upon the army on its
march, that their regular troops will form ihrir right
Mnon the lake, their militia occupy the ground be
tween their regulars and the woods, nnd that the
Indians will make a Hunk nttncK irom inn woous.
Th formation herein nrescribed is intended ti re
list n arrangement of this kind. Should the Gen
eral's conjecture on this subject prove correct, as it
must be evident thrtt the rinht of the enemy cminot
be turned, ts on that wu.g the best of his troop
will he ulaced. it will be uroner to refue him our
left, and direct our principal eifort to uncover the
left flank of his regulars, by driving off the inilitia.
In the event here sujposed, it will therefore be
proper to brinjf up a part, or the whole, 01 genera.

positions with the brigade of volunteers in thoec
ond line. Should the General think it safe to order
tho whole of Cs's brigade to ossit tho charce
made by general Calmes, or that tho former should
change positions with tho volunteer in the second
line, or should tho General think it. rafu to order
tho whole of Cuss's brigade to the right, without
replacing it with another, general Cas will march
it to the right, formed in oblique erivUowt of com
panies. It will be tliu business of general M'Ar
lhur, in lh event of his being refused, to watch the
motions of t!o enemy, and with the asii-tanep of
he nr'.ii'.ery. prevent h'is front line at least from

the governor was going to issuo his orders fur

had crept up si near the sentries, as to hear them
challenge when relived. They intended to rush
upon the sentries nnd kill them before they could

townrds him in the grass, and fired. This was im
mediately followed by the Indian yell, nnd a desper
nto charge upon the iefr flank.
J'ho whole number hilled, with those who died soon

were ahoct. double that number. Governor Harri

earuesily entreated that he wiiiild not go there : but
the governor potting Mi'irs tu his hor-e. pushed on
to the point of attack, where the enemy were re
eeived with firmness nnd driven back.
The battle of Tippecanoe has been the
subject of much pecuin'iuii. both as to its object,
and the iniinner i.f its execution nr.d final issue
liov. Harrison was censured by some, for not mak
ing an attack upon the Indians, on 'be evening of
tliu tith .November, and for not fortifying his eamp
with a breast work. It was erroneously suid by
some, that indii'.ein'i a false security, he had Miiicr-i-.l
his c'iiiio to be surprised. He was niso blamed
by the friends of Col. i'.iveis., for directing him
with hi.iirii'jouns only, to dislodj" the Indians, ho
weie shelterd near the line, and doing much execu
tion in safety. .Many other compl'iints i.'f,!ess magni
tude were also made by men, who w er e wise iiffer
the transaction was ocr. There were indeed more
utile generals in 'he ttie United tStates, win) could
'.ell what ought to have been done after tho ba'tly
was fought, than the governor had soldiers in his
army to fight it. Col. Lloyd who eo:i-,::ninded the

hiui-elf and his regiment, concluded tin- governor
had no', siiillciently noticed him in hi- .-court : and
