These two miara SS are larRoly taken up with
Colonel (subsequently General) Webb's career
as a soldier and officer In the War of Inde?
pendence, lt was his Ill-fortune to be a victim
rather than a maker of history; but to the
present Roneration, able to review all the phases
of the Revolution with calmness, the story of
his asaartasaaa fills a Rap left in the memoirs
of luckier men, for whom the Iron dice of war
turned rapid promotions, and chances of fierce
and brilliant activity, lt should be remembered
that Colonel Webb raise tl the regiment which he
commanded almost entirely at his own expense.
Some of his letters show that efforts were made
to prejudice General Washington against him
because the command was short of the usual
members, and Baron Steuben, as inspectnr-gen
eral. took occasion to say that this was the
only criticism ho could make upon a body Of
men who were well dressed, well cared for, and
whose grims were in a condition to bo imitated hy?
the whole Army. Webb found his experience in
a practical field, ^lo was in the war from the
very outset, and Rained an honorable wound
at the battle of White Plains. Arter his ex?
change he was soon promoted to tho place pre?
viously occupied by Daron Steuben, that of
commander of tho light infantry, with tho rank
of brigadier-general by brevet. It is with his
labors In this capacity that the second volume
of his correspondence closes. He was then a
man under twenty-five years of ago, a smooth?
faced youth as his portrait shows. It ls evi?
dent that he did not have sufficient opportunity
to show what his real abilities wore as a leader.
He might have had in him tho making of a
strategist. Ho eerCiinly did show ono trait
which Wayne would have praised aa an clement
In high soldierly genius; ho know how to clotho
his men fairly well when things wiro at their
worst fr.r tho Continental Army. Necessity
forced him to adopt a uniform not altogether
unlike that of tho British, but this proved In
at least r>ne case an extreme advantage to the
American cause.
The Incident was really an episode of tho
struggle for tho possession of tho North River
between Governor George Clinton and General
Putnam, on tho Amorie.i.t side, and Sir Henry
Clinton on tho British sile. At a moment when
Governor Clinton despaired of ever Retting tbe
New-York militia together, and when the enemy
was slowly but hopefully feeling his way north?
ward in tho effort to assist Burgoyne, lt hap?
pened that two prisoner:- wera captured hy
"Clinton's guards." ono of whom was rc:
?worth a victory in tho field. Ha Bras Dani':
Taylor, and, to uso Clinton's words. 'Was
charged with a message to General Howe, tho
contents enclosed in tho letter to General Gatos,
which I have left open for your perusal, then
to be scaled and forwarded by express." Those
words of Clinton wore in a lotter to the New
York Council of Safety, d.ited October 10. 1777.
The next day the Governor wrote another lotter
to the Council, in which ho recurred, almost as
If by accident, to th? spy Daniel Taylor, and
now wo learn that the lotter seized was from
Slr Henry Clinton to Burgoyne, and "was en?
closed in a small silver ball of an oval form,
about the size of a fusee bullet, ar.d shut with
a screw In tho middle. When he was taken
and brought before in? ho swallows' lt. I mis?
trusted this to be the case from information I
received, and administered him a very strong
emetic. . . . But though dose watched, ho
had the art to conceal lt a second time. I made
him believe that I had taken one Captain Camp?
bell, another messenger, who ho knew was out
on the same business; that I learned from him
all I wanted to know, and demanded tho ball
on pain of being hung up Instantly and cut
open to search for lt. This brought lt forth."
Of course, the confusion af names between the
patriot Governor of tho State and tho loader of
the British North River expedition helped to
mislead the unfortunate sr>v. p,ut If ho had
fallen upon an American force In the ordinary
garb of tho C.ntinontal soldier, ho would have
avoided tho mistake whi^h prov,I fatal to him
and Irreparably damaging to British Interests.
It ls not exactly clear how Governor Clinton ex?
pected his remark about his guards to bo under?
stood, but lt seems probable that Taylor was
captured by men of Webb's lORiment. He was
evidently uninformed as to tho position of the
American forces. Approaching on horseback, ho
was challenged by sentries, and blundered at
once by inquiring tho way to General Clinton's
quarters. What followed is practically narrated
by Governor Clinton.
A curious fact pointed oatt by tho editor of
these volumes ls that Clinton's letter. Just
quoted, is In tho handwritinR of Colonel Webb,
who must therefore have takes an important
part In tho examination of Taylor, thoiiRh he
was at the head of his roRimont, and could
hardly have boon actinR as Governor's aid or
secretary. Tho fact that ho had boon an aid
to General Putnam and then to General Wash?
ington would, of course, favor his actinR as
scribe In an emei-Ronry. Probably the fact that
he wrote the letter in question accounts for
the Information respecting the spy and tho sil?
ver bullet DelnR so much more explicit on tho
second day. But it appears that tho art uni
statement. attributing the capture to Webb's
men. ls mixed up with the name of Lieutenant
Howe, and there was no such officer in the reg?
iment. Mr. Ford thinks that tho name ls a mis?
take. Another hypothesis ls that the uniforms
might have boon lent to tho sentries for tho
night In the hope of some such capture as that
actually made. In any casi-. Webb was abso?
lutely certain to b? In the game from tho first.
He would only have adopted in 1777 a plan
which suggested Itself In 1778 to \\*aRhington, in
proposing the capture of Slr Henry Clinton.
"Let tho officers and soldiers employed in the
enterprise be dressed," wrote the Commander-in
Chief, "in red. and much in the taste of the
British soldiery " Then ho added, as if he had Just
thoURht af something: "Webb's regiment will
afford those dresses." Surely "the old fox," as
he was called hy the British commander Just
b"fore the battle of Trenton, must have had this
very exploit of Webb i:i mind. Tho success of
the stratagem was due to the fact pointed out
by Mr. Ford that the uniform of Webb's regi?
ment, "captured in a British vessel, and only
slightly modified In color from Its original con?
dition, was calculated to mislead a Tory or an
Englishman." It is obvious why this detail in
the capture of the spy. Taylor, should not be al?
luded to, oltherln the public prints orin letters
that might reach hands they were not meant
for; a secre* ls valuable only so long as lt ls
areli kept
It was not long after this Incident that Webb's
misfortunes began. The capture of Burgoyne
and the demonstrated uselessness of Sir Henry
Clinton's expedition up the North River, after
his first success In destroying the American
fortlffcatlons, left such of the American troops
as had not been called into New-Jersey by
Washington time to contrive new enterprises.
One of there was a descent upon the eastern end
of Long leland of troops under the command of
General Parsons, In two divisions, the second
being headed by Colonel Meigs, who was to be
aopported by Colonel Webb. The object of the
expedition was to destroy the timber prepared
on Long Island for building barracks in New
York, and also the fleet of vessels there ready
to transport the lumber to the city. lt was
part of the plan to drive out a regiment sta?
tioned about eight miles east of Jamaica, and
to carry off or destroy whatever public stores
could be found. Meigs was to land at Hamp?
stead Harbor to attack the regiment near
Jamaica. Webb was to leave his vessel near
Huntington, first to sustain Meigs, and then to
join hlf In aiding the main division, which
landed far eastward. But, as luck would have
lt, the sloop Schuyler, in which sailed Colon.-1
Webb with a portion of his command, was
sighted by tho British sloop of war Falcon. OB
her way from Now-York lo Newport. In th'
effort to escape the Schuyler was forced ashore
in a bad surf, and the only boat was stove as
soon as it was lowered, ('..lone! Webb and those
with him were of course captured.
From that moment Colonel Webb became for
several years an Important factor in one of tho
itmst vexatious subordinate controversies of tho
Revolution?tho dispute over tho exohanRo of
prisoners. In tho first pla*-e, tho British wore
stubbornly opposed to any act that miRlit 88*08
to compromise tho King or look Uko a recoa>
Bitten of tho Continental Congress as anything
more than the organ of people in rebellion
against the lawful Rovernmont. Then, when
they found that Americans could also take
prisoners, and particularly after the capture of
Burgoyne's whole army, they bopan tho serious
study of plans for makin".' exchanges by uni Irids
In which the King's name could bo Ignored. On
the other hand, tho Congress upset the best
laid plans of Washington by modifying Hs own
resolutions on tho subject again and again.
OwinR to tho cruel treatment of Americans Im?
prisoned In New-York and in the prison-ships,
there also arose a feeling among both military
and civilian loaders similar to ihat which ls said
to have actuated Secretary Stanton In tho Civil
War. "What ir. th*- uso." lt was asked, "to
hand over to tho enemy able-bodied, well-fed
mon, and to receive In return mon ready to die
of starvation?" Tho Rame of war does not
leave much room for compassion. Meanwhile,
since exchange was Impossible, tho practice of
release on parole became common In tho case
of officers on both sides, much to tho exaspera?
tion of loyal soldiers Uko Webb, who wore eager
to return to their roRimonts. Mr. Ford has
taken advantage of Webb's tribulations to in?
clude an elaborate study of tho whole contempo?
rary discussion over tho exohanRo of prisoners,
and lt certainly ls an extremely interesting
feature of Revolutionary history. Colonel
Webb's Imprisonment was rendered romantic by
his marriage to Elizabeth Bancker, while his
return to freedom and his regiment was sad?
dened by her early deal h. As the war drew to
a close he felt, with his brother officers, the
sting to what they conceived to bo public In?
gratitude. "I hope devoutly," ho wrote on one
occasion, "that tho war ls nearly over, and tho
next time I enter tho lists of an army of Re?
publican States I wish I may be a corporal. I
believe we shall soon get clear of the war with
tho BrltiFh myrmldoi a?but If wo (America) de?
serve liberty, I am damnably mistaken. We poor
d>gs shall retire with broken constitutions and
empty purses, and tho cursed sin of Ingratitude
has taken such deep hold of our virtuous
countrymen that I expect a chosen few only will
know us."
Aside from tho literary attractions of those
vu!innes, they have others. Of the letter-press
edition only .".".O copies have boon printed, and
If No. 1S7 ls a criterion, they aro handsome ex?
amples of th" binders' art as well as that of
tho printer. They aro illustrated with BBBteroua
portraits, and also with reproductions In fac?
simile nf autiigraphs from the hands of many
distinguished men and women of the Resolution*
ary period. In a brief preface. Hr. W. Siward
Webb not only alludes to th" principal points In
Colonel Webb's career, but tells the story of tho
work now printed. It was his wish to give the
records that remained of Colonel Webb's life a
permanent form, and so he placed them in the
hands of Mr. Ford. "The scope of the work
widened," he adds, "as lt proceeded, and the
one volume intended has been extended to
thrr-e." The third volume ls to contain, besides
correspondence, a biography of Colonel Webb
and an acknowledgment of the aid afforded by
many In furnishing valuable material for the
work.

Darlington, Ocean Grove, spring Lake, Betasar
and llanasquaa, will bs preeeatod to the Legislature
praying for the separatio.i.
For years efforts have been made by the *ea.
shore towns to secure this boon, but in every In?
stance these attempt-, have been foiled by th*
machinations of OtBeeboMera ani politicians, f>>i
puniy seillsh motives, and the helpless taxpayers
of the shore towns ?Billeted In assessments far in
?nceaa of an ecjntsabta proportion of the tsxss, for
1 the purpose of supporting the Inland towns who
have nothing In common with shore Interests.
At every yearly me<>tlng of ta* Hoard af Aaaeaaora
the valuation of property along the coast is nisei,
while that of the Inland townships ls lowered.
This works a great hardship anil Injustice upon
the owners of property on the BSahoard and they
have at last, when tho opportunity arrlv.-i, de?
termined to shake off the Incubus.
The several Hoards of Trail" in th* different cities
and towns mentioned have tak"ti th* Initiative lu
this movement, and will hold BtaSB-nMettngfl durbin
this and next month to formulate plans af BCttofl
and to arrange for the procurement of signature,*
to the petition it ls proposed to present to the
Legislature. The first of these meetings was bel |
in Hong Branch on last Wednesday night anil the
greatest enthusiasm prevailed (n favor of tlc- .11
Vlslon. A IdghrtatlTg Committee and a eOSBBllttee
to confer with Hoards of Trad* In other towns
w.-re appointed. This week a similar me.-ting i?
called for at Asbury Burk, ami from that on muss
meetings will be held throughout that portion of
the county which proposes lo cut loose from the
old order of things. The most popular name nu far
suggested for the new county ls "Neptune," al?
though "Naveslnk" and "Highland" Uni favor with
some people.
As an evidence of the Inequality of the tax-rate
as made by the County Hoard of Assessors for
this year, it mny be mentioned that Otana Town?
ship, in which thc city of Hong Branch is legated.
alone pays |46,CTi ~Z, lacking but Rikki ,,f betas*
one-quarter of tho entire county tax, which this
year ls placed at laffUSJ; while Neptune Township,
In which ls situated Asbury Hark, fl town of only
twenty odd years' existence, pays marl) one-tenth
of the whole, and so on. The :;ix township* men?
tioned abos* ore all on the seaboard, and they ate
anxlous to l?e divorced from the remaining ten
townships of the sixteen which now constitute the
county of Monmouth, and they pay ir*i,7ii>, or
nearly three-quarters of the entire county tax,
while In area the other ten townships absorb nearly
three-quarters or the territory embraced 111 .Mon?
mouth County. The same unequal a.ni Inconsistent
condition obtains in the Hoard of Chosen Free?
holders, where the shore townships are continually
outvoted aa every project looking to the advance?
ment of their material Interests. For Instance, the
people of these townships have been clamoring for
food roads, of which under a recent enactmint of the
legislature the State assumes one-third of the cost
of construction, leaving thc balance to be paid by
the property owners along the line of the proposed
new roads and the Board of Freeholders of the
county. But here comes In the fatal hairier. Bach
township freeholder has one vote, and thus the t?n
minor Inland townships are an2hled to block local
legislation for lmprovementa. but continue to heap
up a tax-rate that relieves them, while unjustly
burdening the six shore townships. For illustra?
tion: Ocean Township pays $3,318 more lhan the
eight Inland townships of Atlantic, Millstone. Mat
awan. Howell. Marlboro, Manalapan, Ilolmdel and
Rarltan, yet only has one vote, and gets a beg?

total appropriation of 179,500 for bridge repairs,
while she pays nearly 60 per cent of the whole tax.

STATE AID ROM PAROCHIAL SCHOOLS^
PROTESTANT MINISTERS OF" MARYLAND OPPfjajJ
IT-A TALK WITH A CATHOLIC PRELATE.
Baltimore, Nov. 27 (Speclal).-The Protestant mia
Inters of this city are Up in arms agalnat th*
Catholic proposition for State aid for denomina?
tional schools. At tho meeting of the State Min?
isterial I'nlon, to be held next month, a memorial
will be prepared to bo sent to the I.ejfiaiature pro
testing against the bill for the divinion of th*
school fund, which the Catholic Church authorltle*
to-day admitted would be Introduced at the coming
session. Cardinal Gibbons to-day again declined to
see reporter* or make any statement about the
circular. Monsignor McColgon, Vlcar-Oeneral ot
the diocese, who, lt can be safely said, speaks for
the Cardinal, Bald to-lay:
"The circular on the school question is Issued
under the sanction and by thc authority of the
Church. As the circular Htate*. we are not opposed
to the public schools, as far as they impart (rood
secular education; but they do not teach religion.
1 hold that any religion is better than no religion.
A religion which teaches only the Ten Command.
menta is be-tter than none. The country ls becom?
ing flooded with Anarchists and Communiats from
Europe, and we hold that the teaching of religion
In the aefaoola will educate the people to a higher
standard of morality, ami lessen the evil tendencies
produced by these Anarchists and Communist*
We have no desire tu unite the Church and 8tate "
With reference to Itishop Uoane's criticisms, Mon
signor htcColgOfl BaldS""! will not undertake to
answer the arguments made against us by every
bigot. I believe in rendering to God the things that
;ir.- Ci's aad tn Caesar the things that ara
Ca saar'a lilshop I)oane gives everything to Caesar
.ind nothing to God. We do not wish to stir un
any strife? or controversy. We are for God first
uni (.th?r things afterward, and we think we are
making a reasonable request for a part of our peo
plw/fl taxes, so that the poor children of the par?
ishes may be taught religion as well as educated In
secular matters.'
