A . correspondent of the Hartford
Times writes from Washington. .Aug.
27: The battle of Bladensburg and the
"burning of Washington," as some
writers have spoken of . it.' took nlaoe
on Aug. 14, 1814. Sunday was. there
fore, tne s niy -nun anniversary ol the
day.- There was no public celebration
of the event, though in several houses
of our city "the heroes of Bladens
burg" (for there are some of them still
living) met and fought the battle over
again; but this time ft was over a dinner-table,
the pleasantest kind of a
battle, by the way. On Saturday I had
a long ana extremely pleasant chat with
Mr. Nicholas Callan, one of the origi
nators and leading members - of the
Oldest InhabitantaAssoci&tion. aa well
as one of our most prominent and old
est citisens. He has had official busi
ness with every President since Jack
son, and remembers James Madison
very well. Mr. Callan has held the
office of Notary Public in this city for
these many years, and in that time has
been brought into contact with thou
sands of officials. Congressmen, For
eign Ministers, who have long since
been numbered among the dead. He
was not old enough to take a hand in
the battle of Bladensburg, but remem
bers the day very well, as also the entry
of the British into this city on the even
ing following the battle. 1 will attempt
to reproduce the story of that day as it
was told to me by Mr. Callan. Starting
out he said: "The authorities here had
received information from various
sources that the British were coming,
and ' that they intended to burn - the
publio buildings in this city. No
one knew by which road they
would come. There were no tele
phones, telegraph or fast mails in those
days, and news was sent by carriers or
by the pony expresses only. It was
learned a day or so before the British
came here that they had arrived some
where along the coast of the Chesa
peake Bay; that they would come up
the Patuxent to Washington. It was
expected that they would cross the
i r j .i .
uriugrj uver tuts tutausru ui buuu u turj
Potomac, known then and at the pres
ent day as Benning's bridge. 1 Prepara
tions were made so that the bridge
could be set on fire as the British were
crossing it, or destroyed so that they
could not get back. Commodore Bar
ney -had charge of a detail of sailors,
and Major Miller a company of marines.
They were stationed at the bridge and
remained there until they found out
that the British intended to enter the
city by the Bladensburg pike. " They
then went to Bladensburg and played a
most' important part in that battle,
which resulted in the defeat of our side.
Our forces at that battle consisted of
several thousand volunteers, cavalry
and infantry. The majority of the cav
alry had never been on the back of a
horse before that day; and as for the
infantry, the great majority of them
bad never nred a gun, or pistol even.
in their lives. Firearms were not as
plentiful in those days as now, and such
a thing as a percussion-cap or breech
loader was never thought of. The Brit
ish attacking force was a great deal
smaller than ours, but was disciplined.
President Madison and his Cabinet wit
nessed . the battle, having gone out
there on horseback that morning. One
of oar regiments had no ' guns.' The
others did not get to the battle-held
until - it was too late for them to be of
service." - " . : ir .
" How was that?" I ventured to ask.
" Well," continued Mr. Callan. the
man who was on duty in. the-, arsenal
did not know much about wan ting, and
he had some difficulty in getting out the
guns for the volunteers, many of whom
did not know how to fire -them after
they had received -Hhem;. 'and then,
again, he was a long time in getting
and counting out the flints for them.
He counted out rhe flinta several times.
before he issued them, so particular
was he that be would net make a mis
take. Ob the road out they met the
others coming in on a lively retreat."
- When did the British arrive in this
cityP" I inquired.- k - ' - J
They got here pretty soon after our
army did," said Mr. Callan, reaching
the city about four or five o'-clock in the
afternoon. The battle was fought about
noon, or a little before ' that hour. 1
remember very well their march into
the city. As they were coming along a
couple of squares east of the- capitol
some one fired at 'General Ross, who
was in command of the red coats, miss
ing him. but lulling his horse. The gun
was fired from the house of a gentle
man named S6w.lL General Ross or
dered that the house be burned, and in
a few minutes it was in ' flames. ' No
other private property was destroyed.
Soon after .that the British soldiers
burned the capitol, and then marching
to the treasury building, burned that.
Then they fired the President's house,
and after that marched to a place on
Maryland avenue, where they camped
for the night."
"The burning having been anticipa
ted, was any preparation made for it?"
" Yes. All of the important records
of the departments had been boxed up
and removed to hiding-places in Vir-
Sinia. They were hid so well that the
ritish never fqund them. I lived then
where my office is now, on F street,
near Fifteenth (about one ' hundred
yards from the Treasury Department),
and remember very well the appearance
of President' Madison's messenger as
he passe'd along New York avenue bear
ing a message from the President, who
was at Bladensburg, to Mrs. Madison,
telling her to leave the city as soon as
possible; the British have arrived.' It
was understood in advance where she
should go if she received such a mes
sage. She immediately left for a place
Virginia, where she remained, as did
the President and several members- of
his Cabinet, until the British left for
Baltimore, eight or ten days after. You
have read, .no doubt, of the death of
General Ross near Old Point, at Balti
more, on September 12,- following. As
he was riding along, two boys fired at
and killed him from a large tree in the
woods. . .The boys were riddled by bul
lets, a whole regiment returning their
fife. Mrs. Madison left the White
Hbeee in the charge of a messenger
named. aTohnSouissa, who died less than
ten years sgo. It was Mr. Souissa,
who was a Frenchman, who cut Gilbert
Stuart's portrait of Washington xmt of
its frame and hid it somewhere in the
woods, so that the British could not de
stroy it. I know this from Mr. Souissa
and several others who were employed
at the While House at the time."
"This matter was the subject of an
inquiry recently, was it not?"
"Yes. Mr. Hayes sent for me a
couple of months ago. I went to the
White House to see him. He asked me
to tell him the entire story of the sav
ing of the Stuart portrait of Washing
ton, which is still there, and is the best
girtraitin existence. I did so. Mr.
ayes said be had been told that the
fortrait had been cut out of its frame
y a colored man, but I satisfied him it
was saved by Mr. Souissa. The Oldest
Inhabitants' Association recently inves
tigated the matter thoroughly, and
found beyond doubt that it was Souissa
who saved the picture. Edward Mo
Man us, who was door-keeper at the
White House for nearly thirty years,
told me several days ago that when the
picture was refrained. lust before Bu
chanan left the White House, he - saw
the jagged edges made ' by the knife,
just as Mr. Souissa had described them
to him. I satisfied Mr. Hayes on this
subject. There was a colored man em
ployed at the White House at the time
by the name of Jerry Smith. Just be
fore Mrs. .Madison left the Mansion,
after piling all of her clothing and such
like things as she could take into trunks,
she impressed upon Jerry the impor
tance of saving a line poll-parrot she
had. While Souissa was cutting the
nprtrait out of its frame. Jerry took the
poll-parrot down the street, looking for
some one who would promise him they
weuld take care of it to oblige Mrs.
Madison. He finally put it in McGraw's
restaurant, corner of Fifteenth and F
streets, where it was kept until Mrs.
Madison returned. Mr. W. W. Corcor
an told me some time ago that Souissa
rolled up the picture, and hid it in the
Union hotel in Georgetown. He did
not say this of his own knowledge, how
ever, and I am sure he is mistaken. - It
was hid somewhere else, but I don't
exactly remember where. Mr. Souissa
told me often, but at this moment I for
get the place."
" How were the red-coats treated
"At that time," said Mr. Callan,
the population of Washington did not
exceed 4,000 or 5,000. To-day it is
160,000. Everybody was of course
frightened. The soldiers commit-
tea no aepreaauons except go
ing into grog-shops and ordering
what they wanted to drink, which they
forgot to pay for. But that was ex
pected. On the day following the en
trance of the British Father Mathew
(who was then pastor of St. Patrick's
church) heard the confessions of a
number of British soldiers. . He did not
appear to be the least bit afraid of them,
and continued his regular services the
same as if everything was as quiet as
usual. Father Mathew was the first
native American who was ordained a
priest in this country. He was ordained
in Baltimore by Archbishop CarrolL
Many of the British soldiers attended
the services at his church, marching up
from their camp, about the spot where
the Botanical garden now is, in
t"When was the War Department
. On the morning after the 25th Gen
eral Ross led a detachment of his sol
diers up to the War Department. They
passed right along Pennsylvania ave
nue with a lot of other soldiers. I fol
lowed the other youngsters up and saw
them burn the building. As General
Ross was returning he stopped in front
of the Bank of the Metropolis (now
known as the National Metropolitan
bank, on Fifth street, opposite the
Treasury) The bank-was in charge of
a watchman, all of its other attaches
having run away the day before, as did
a great many others.' A short time be
fore the bank bad loaned $500,000 to
the Government, to be sent to General
Jackson at New Orleans. .They issued
a bank note, on which was printed de
pository of the United States. These
notes were paid out to the soldiers of
Jackson s army; and one of them had
got into General -Ross' hands. He
gave notice that he would . burn
the bank, ordering the watchman
to leave the building, and if
there was anyone else inside to tell
them to leave instantly. The watch
man answered there was no one inside.
Just at this time CapL James Hoban,
an architect, came along and explained
to General Ross that the bank was not
a 'depository-. of the Government in
any sense, and that it had used those
words on its notes because of its having
issued them; 'and, besides,' said Mr.
Hoban, 'if you burn this bank building,
General, you will destroy the property
of an old Irish widow which adjoins it.'
" She is a deuced poor widow if she
i owns -all of that property,' said Roes,
as he rode off without carrying his
original intention into effect. The bank
building was thus saved. There was no
' attempt to save any of the furniture or
other 'things in the publio buildings
burned. Mr. Armstrong, who was Sec
retary of War, had told every qne a
week before the British came exactly
what they would do, and no one was
surprised; indeed, they expected that
they would burn more than they did."
V Was any one shot by the British in
"Yes, one man; and only one, if I
remember correctly, and he was a
ciazy man. He had gone insane in
consequence of fright at their coming,
and on the day they arrived he- had
rigged himself out in a full suit of offi
cers clothing, a General's uniform, I
believe, with . all the regalia, straps,
epaulets and other traps. He marched
down to Their camp the next morning
in full uniform, and, taking a good
position, he cursed them clear out of
sight, and oh! how he did swear at them.
They stood it some time, but, the fellow
getting worse and worse, some of them
shot him. Ross said he was very sorry
about it when he learned that the man
was insane. They should have arrested
him, but certainly did not have any right
to shoot him. I saw his body as it was
being taken away with bis spurs on.
No red-coat ever went to Georgetown,
though they plundered Alexandria ubt
mercifully after they sailed from this
city on their way to Baltimore, where
they were whipped at North Point on
SepL 14. . They agreed they would not
lire on Alexandria if everything they
asked for was given them, .and then
proceeded to steal all the tobacco,
whisky and negroes they ceuld carry in
their ships." .
The Northeastern Passage.
' Prof. E. Ersler, a distinguished Dan
ish geographer, published recently in
the columns of .the Copenhagen Dag
bladet a most interesting article on the
attempts that have been made to force
the northeast passage. At this time,
when Pi of. Nordenskjold has succeeded
in accomplishing the task in which so
many daring navigators have failed,
this historical survey will be read with
more than ordinary interest. It may be
remarked, however, - that the writer
seems to have given no attention to the
share which several of the warriors of
Charles XiL, detained as prisoners of
war in Siberia, had in the geographical
discoveries in Arctic Europe and North
eastern Asia. Thus, for instance, be
fore Behring had fully settled that Asia
and America are divided by open wi -ter,
Henrich Busch, a Swedish corporal,
arid Ambjorn Molin, a Swedish Lieuten
ant, on their maritime excursions, had
proved the fact, and the memorable
map drawn by P. J. V. Strahlenberg
and J. A. Matern, which as early as
1715 was laid before Peter the Great,
shows that these cartographers were
convinced of the existence of a sound
between Asia and America.
Many centuries ago efforts were made
to find as short a route as possible to
India, a country which, with its singu
larly dazzling culture and wealth of
manifold precious objects, even in re
mote antiquity, presented itself to the
people of Europe in a fabulous radi
ance and magical lustre. After the
discovery of America by Columbus, it
was sought, among other things, to
reach India by two northerly routes
namely, through the northwest passage,
or the route north of America, and the
northeast passage, or the route north of
Asia. Many attempts have been made to
discover the northwest passage, among
them the four expeditions which King
Christian IV., of Denmark, fitted out,
the last of which was conducted by Capt.
Jens Munck, who spent the winter in
Hudson Sound, ana of . whose crew,
originally, of sixty-four persons, only
two besides the Captain returned.
About a lifetime back, the English final
ly succeeded in discovering the north
west passage, and the names of Frank
lin and McClure, among-others, are in
dissolubly connected with the achieve
ment. .The explorations of, the north
east passage also go far back in time.
The great navigator Sebastian Cabot
managed to interest Ike English King,
Edward VI., in this route, and English
merchants formed a company, which,
in 1553, fitted out three ships, bound to
navigate north of Asia to Japan and
China. , r r . r .
The first snip "was commanded by
Hugh WilloughWy, who was at the same
time Admiral of the squadron, and the
second by Richard Chancellor. Shortly
after their departure, however, the ves
sels - separated and Willoughby came
with his, own and the third vessel to the
river Arzina, on the Lapponian penin
sula, which divides the White Sea from
the Arctic Ocean.' Here during the win
ter he and all his men died. Chancel
lor, however, entered the Whits Sea,
and hearing that the adjoining land be
longed to the Czar, he went to Moscow,
where he was very amicably received,
and concluded a treaty of commerce
between England and Russia. From
this period an extensive barter trade
sprang up between the English and the
people inhabiting the country along the
White Sea, so that Willoughby's hap
less voyage formed a turning point, not
only in the maritime trade of England
and Russia, but also in the commerce
of the world. The English, in the
meantime, did not lose sight of. their
original aim. In the year 1556 Stephen
Burroughs wss dispatched northward,
and he arrived at Nova Zembla and dis
covered WaigaU Sound. . He sailed
through the sound into the Kara Sea,
then turned back in the full belief that
he had found the route to Japan and
China. In 1580, during the reign of
Elizabeth, Arthur Pett and Charles
Jackman set out for Waigats Sound to
follow in the wake of Burroughs, and
they even entered the Kara Sea, but
found it so full of ice that, after en
countering many dangers, they were
obliged to return, and the English
abandoned for the time all hopes of
penetrating any farther on this route.
The Dutch, rivals of the English in
the field of commerce, were not idle,
however, and they sent out in 1594 an
expedition of three ships with a view
to discover the northeast vassaee.
These vessels were commanded by Cor
nelius jNai)rwho was also the Admiral.)
Brand Yszbrandsy and Willem Bar-
rentsz, and they went as far as the Ob
River, but turned back in consequence
of the ice. In the following year a
squadron of seven vessels took their de
parture, under command of Cornelius
Nai, as Admiral, and Willem Barrentsz,
as one of the Captains, but this expedi
tion did not even go as far as the pre
vious one. In the year 1596 a third
Dutch exploring expedition set sail. It
consisted of three vessels, commanded
by Jacob Heemskerks, Willem Bar
rentsz going out as first officer. This
expedition, also, did not reach further
in an easterly direction than its pre
cursors, but it is extremely noteworthy
because the Dutch then discovered
Spitsbergen, which they fancied was
part of Greenland. The expedition
spent the winter in Nova Zembla, where
Barrentsz died in June, 1597. Being
unsuccessful with reference to' the
northeast passage, the Dutch lost all
relish for further operations in that
direction.- They settled, however, in
.Spitsbergen, and carried on an exten
sive whale-nsherv in its waters. In
stead of gold and precious stones from
China, Japan and the East Indias, they
thus got oil and other products of the
whale, but this paid splendidly, and the
Hollanders founded a town in Spits
bergen with most expensive warehouses
ana oil refineries, and this settlement
'received - the significant name of
"Smeerenburg," the Dutch word
" smeer " - signifying grease. . Again,
during the period 1607-1610. the En
glish fitted out three expeditions in
search -of the northeast passage, all
three under the command of Hudson,
the celebrated navigator, but they mis
carried, and the same fate was in store
for a couple of similar undertakings on
the part ol cngiand at a later date.
This much is as far as regards ex
peditions originating in western Eu
rope, with the route to India as an ob
ject. We now approach another range
of expeditions, . which in a great meas
ure have appeared in less grandiose di
mensions and the principal purpose of
which was to levy taxes for the Russian
Government and thus enriching its
treasury. Having thus got possession
of Siberia in the year 1587, it is. natural
that the Russians gradually endeavored
to get a firm footing in all parts of that
vast territory, ana witn sucn a view
their emissaries were dispatched In all
directions. These were generally com
mon individuals, not bent upon geo
graphical discoveries, though many of
them became real discoverers, to whom
science is greatly indebted. Little is
known, however, of most of their ex
plorations, and when any knowledge of
such has , been gleaned it has resulted
from some legal dispute or other which
made it necessary to ransack the Si
berian archives. Wrangel, the Russian
naval officer; in his travels, has given
some geographical information. Aa
early as 1648. Deschneff, a Cossack,
went with three others from the Arctic
Ocean, passing East Cape along the
eastern shore of Kamschatka, and in
this way the great discovery was made
that Asia and America were not con
tiguous, but separated by a sound.
which subsequently received the name
of Behring Straits. . This nomenclature
has been conferred on the sound in
memory of Vitus Behring, a native of
Denmark, who, with several other Dan
ish .mariners, had enlisted in the service
of Peter the Great. - In the year 1725,
a few years before the death o't!the Czar,
Behring, together with Martin Spangs
berg, another Dane, went overland
through Siberia in order to discover
whether Asia and America were con
nected or not. They first went along
the coast of Kamschatxa, ana were,
after four weeks' northward sailing.
convinced that there was no connection
by land between the two parts of the
world. . After an absence of five years
Behring and Spangsberg were again
back in St. Petersburg, where they re
ceived great honors. Three years later
they were again sent traveling. This
time Behring, among other things, was
to explore the whole of the north coast
of Siberia. While Spansberg set out
for Japan, Behring went to Kamschat
ka. ' During the year 1741 he sailed
around considerably in the bay of Kam
schatka, and finally arrived at a desert
island, where he died on the 8th of De
cember of that year, and the island,
which lies northeast of Kamschatka,
was called after . him. Almost sim
ultaneously with Bbhring's explorations-
other parties were coast
ing along the northern - shores
of Siberia, using in their expeditions
small and miserable river boats, built
in the interior of Siberia. In this way
about as much information was gained
as was needful to drrw up maps of the
whole northern range of the Siberian
shores, though., to be sure, in an im
perfect manner. Of individuals who
have proved themselves meritorious in
these explorations we may here men
tion the mate (Tjeljuskin) for one, as
it was he who discovered the most
northerly promontory of Asia 77dcg.
north latitude, and it received the name
of its discoverer. Also at a later period
a number of smaller expeditions were
undertaken in these regions, but all of
them were fitted out in such a manner
that Professor Nordenskjold in a geo
graphical periodical in the beginning
of last year justly remarked that " a
great portion of the ocean north of Si
beria had never been plowed by the
keel of a really seaworthy vessel."
Having by repeated voyages to Spits
bergen, .fully. explored that territory,
Professor Nordenskjold turned his
thoughts to regions situated north of
the coast of Asia. From the fact that
navigation of the Murman Sea i. c,
the oeean between the Lapponian
Peninsula and Noya Zembla considered
perilous, as far as a man's lifetime
back, though in our days it is visited by
hundreds of fishing craft, he concluded
that it was equally possible to push ex
plorations further toward the east. On
the other side of Nova Zembla, in- the
Kara Sea. He came to this conclusion
from conversations with some whale
men who had in 1869 navigated the
Kara Sea as far as the mouth of the
Ob River. Since 1870 said Waters have
also been visited by whalers in increas
ing numbers. In 1875-6 Nordenskjold
undertook his remarkable voyage
across this ocean to the mouth of the
river Yenisei, thus discovering that
there was nothing to prevent vessels
from Europe going to and from the
said river, and thereby securing to the
commerce of the world a new and un
til now unknown field in these northern
latitudes. - It is very natural that Nor
denskjold, after so successful a result,
should have been seised with the de
sire to proceed further, and with his
known energy he undertook pro primo
to stuay everything written concerning
discoveries in the icy northern regions;
pro secundo to interest King Oscar 1L,
me oweaisn (Government and the
Swedish Parliament, together with Dr.
Oscar Dickson, a merchant of Gothen
burg, and the wealthy Siberian capital

proceeding north of Asia and returning
through the Indian Ocean and the
Suez Canal. . - ; : -. ' .
Manufacture ef Glucose From Corn.
The extent to which the manufacture
of glucose sirup from corn has reached
would astonish the country if fully
known. We are not prepared to give
figures indicating the totality to which
this business has already reached. ' In
fact, the business is at present mainly
carried on under a kind of secrecy, the
profit being immense, and the article
produced being used, but not avowedly.
One establishment in New York, which
for years manufactured starch from
corn, pursued experiments for a long
time under German chemists, until at
last the glucose in sirup form and free
from poisonous substances was pro
duced. Since then this New York establishment-
has been engaged in a
constantly . increasing production and
trade. The figures we report may not
be exact in all particulars, but are ac
curate enough to give a general idea of
tne magnituae ot tne business, tne
profit. of the manufacture, and the ex
tent to which cane sugar is being dis
placed by the new commodity in sev
If we are not mistaken, the original
manufacturer of the glucose, now an
article of commerce, as a substitute for
sugar, was able to produce, say three
gallons of pure sirup from each bushel
of corn. This sirup is of good color,
and good saccharine power, and its
liquid consistency rendered it desirable
xor mixing with other sirups. As com
pared with imported sirups, or with
sirups made wholly from sugar, its cost
was insignificant, thus enabling the pro
ducer to sen it at from htty to seventy-
five per pent, profit, and at the same
time furnish a substitute for direct
sugar productions at one-half or less
than their cost. This glucose is sold
to the manufacturers for the following
1. It is sold, as was proven before
the Congressional Investigating Com-
iii it been, tu luiiueusB quauuuea to sugar
refiners. 2. It is sold to all manufacturers of
so-called sirups represented as made
lrom pure sugar. . 1 '
i S. It is sold in immense quantities to
manufacturers of candy and all other
forms of confectionery; instead of buy
ing sugar largely made from glucose.
they now buy the glucose itself and
make tneir wares direct lrom it.
It is-sold extensively to be mixed
with California honey, it assimilating
in color and in other respects with that
article, it is mixed in the proportion
of at least one gallon of glucose to one
of honey, and the combined product is
now not only sold to consumers as hon
ey, but is also exported to Europe,
where, on account of its cheapness as
well as flavor and other qualities, it is
nnding an increasing market. , -.
5. It is used in the East in the manu
facture of sweet wines and in all liquors
requiring sirups. . ,-. .
In naming these purposes to which
glucose is applied we do not mean to
say that it is confined to such uses; of
course it enters into all other produc
tions of which sugar is a constituent.' '
The extent to which corn is used for
the manufacture of glucose, which man
ufacture is only in its infancy, may be
judged when it is known that the con
sumption of corn for this purpose dur
ing 1878, by the one- establishment to
which we have referred, was 6,000.000
of bushels. . r or a time the trade was
confined to a few hands, but the patent
process has been sold to others, and at
least one large establishment is in' op
eration at Buffalo, another in St. Louis,
and a third in Chicago the latter hav
ing been put in operation quite recently.
There is another at' one of the river
towns in Iowa, and, possibly, there may
be one or two outside of New York City,
in the Eastern States.
This industry presents the rather
strange phenomenon of manufacturing
annually the equivalent of- .many milt
ions of pounds of sugar, involving the
employment of large capital, with ma
chinery, consuming millions of bushels
of corn, and yet the whole business is
carried on with as much secrecy as at
tends the illicit distillation of spirits.
No purchaser is willing to avow that he
purchases the article; both seller and
purchaser avoid publicity. The pur
chaser of glucose sells it to his custom
ers under different names at ten times
its original cost, and the consumers are
paying seven hundred per cent, profit
on all commodities of which sugar or
sugar sirup is supposed to be the es
It is due to truth to say that it is
claimed that the glucose or corn sub
stitute for sugar is free from any quali
ty which is in the slightest degree inju
rious to health; that it is" as pure as
starch made from corn; and that the
sole purpose of keeping its manufact
ure secret is to enable those having the
mystery and monopoly of its manufact
ure, as well as others who are using
this cheap substitute and selling it as
cane sugar, to reap the harvest of im
mense profits. If pure, wholesome su
gar, or a pure, wholesome equivalent
for sugar, ean be produced from corn,
then the world is entitled to all the
benefits of the discovery.' If sugar from
corn is possible, let its manufacture be
come general, and let the country have
its benefit, and not have the profit
wholly taken by the monopolists, who
are practicing an enormous fraud on
the public. Chicago Tribune.
