"SoTatj-Serenth Anniversary of American
Independence.
THE CELEBRATION IN THE METROPOLIS.
ftOti &C.J
We give below the few notices and progi^Bimes
-Of the public cejjfrbrationa of the Fourth of
Jn this city wlj?w are to take place to-day. We
ALbo give a list oVfhe orators at some of the cele
krations in various parts of the country. we
Hme and room for the selection we might greatly
extend this list of orators. We are inclined to think,
? however, that this great anniversary will be less
generally observed by public celebrations than
usual. But there is no danger that the day and its
historical remembrances will ever be regarded with
apathy by the American people. It was the opinion
of John Adams, as expressed in the well-known
letter which w? now republish, that the day " ought
to be solemnized from one end of the continent to
thc|othcr forever
JOHN ADAMS' LETTER.
. Philadelphia, July 5, 1776.
Yesterday the greatest question was decided
Which was ever debated in America? and greater
perhaps never was or will be decided among men
A resolution was passed, without one dissenting colo
ny, "That these United States are, and of right ought
-to be, free and independent States."
The day is passed. The 4th of July, 1776, will be
a memorable cpocha in the history of America. I
am apt to believe it will be celebrated by succeeding
generations as the great Adversary Festival. It
ought to be commemorated, as the day of deliverance,
by solemn acts of devotion to Almighty God. It
ought to be solemnized with pomp, snows, games,
Hoorte, guns, bell , boElirt% and illuminations, from
^<1 of the continent to the other, from this time
forwarii roi'Cver ! ^uU ^ think me transported
with enthusiasm ! but I W aot* 1 an? we!! awaro of
the toil, and blocl, and treasure, that it will coat to
maintain this declaration, and support and defend
these States: yet through ail the gloom I can see
the rays of light and glory. 1 can see that the end
Is worth more than all the means, and that posteri
ty will triumph, although you and I may rue, which
I hope we shall not. I am, Ac".
JOHN ADAMS.
It will be observed that Mr. Adams, in the above
letter speaks of the Declaration of Independence aa
affecting the whole continent of America, and it was
on hia motion, in the Continental Congress, that the
troops raised for the defence of the colonies against
Great Britain were sty'ed " the Continental Army."
The bills of credit issued by order of Congress, also,
It will be recollected, were called " Continental
Money," and the word "continental" was constantly 1
Applied in the revolutionary Congress to subjects of
national concern. The patriots of the Revolution, in
declaring independence, and fighting to sustain it,
believed that all the British colonies on this conti
nent, including theCanadas and Nova Scotia, would
nnite eventually in the measure to form a great and
Independent nation, and that the Spanish colonies
to the sooth and weBt of us, and north of the Isthmus
of Darien, would become part of the republic when
wanted, and thua all North Ameri:a would form a
great and independent continental confederacy.
This idea appears clearly in the writings, not only of
John Adams, but of Gouverneur Morris, Dr. Timothy
Dwight,and other men of the Revolution, and one of
the poets of the time expresses the same sentiment,
In an epilogue to Addison's Cato, adapted to the
American stage,
P?1 * up unea contrail yOiif p6w?*fi,
But the whole bouiidlesa Contioeo* i< ost*."
The subject of independence was debated for ^oma
time in Congress before unanimity could be secured
for its adoption by that body. One year before the
declaration, and even later, the idea of independence
?as disavowed by leading men, and it was not gen
erally popular among the people when first discussed.
The necessity for the measure was, however, early
foreseen by a few of the most knowing ones, among
whom was Dr. Timothy Dwight, of Connecticut, but
in his writings he snys he found few or none, in 1775,.
to countenance it. Iu Congress it was at length felt
that no diplomatic arrangements with foreign powers
could be made for assistance until independence was
declared , and thus a national existence commenced
by the United States. Independence of Great Britain
was first asserted at a meeting of the people iu Meck
lenburg, North Carolina, in May, 1775, more than
one year before the declaration by Congress, and
?oon after that time the question begun to be pub
licly discussed throughout the country. As we have
mentioned, the idea at first encountered strenuous
opposition, but in a short time was everywhere
making rapid progress. The Pennsylvania, New
Jersey, and Maryland Colonial Assemblies, instructed
their delegates in Congress to oppose independence,
In November, 1776, and January, 1770. But at this
time, the publication of the pamphlet called " Com
mon Sense," by Thomas Paine, which had a wide
circulation m rough the colonies, gave a powerful
impulse to the cause of independence. Paine wis a
recent emigrant from England, and editor of the
Pennsylvania Magazine. His celebrated pamphlet,
above referred to written at the suggestion of
Dr. Benjamin Ruth, then a young and ardent
patriot, of Philadelphia, argued in a plain and con
vincing fty!e the folly of any longer attempting to
keep up the connection with Great Britain, and the
absolute necessity of a (trial separation.
In April, 1776, the North Carolina ProvincUlCon
venticn authorized t> cir delegates in Congress to
join with the other colonies in declaring indepen
dence. The Assemblies of Rhode Island and Con
necticut indicated t-imilar inclinations, while in May.
1776, the delegates from Virginia were Instructed by
the Convention of the Colony to propose in Congress a
declaratfon of independence. At the annual election
in Massachusetts, the f-arae month, instructions infa
Tor of independence were voted by the people. In
CongrcbB the subject was introduced, June 7, 1776,
by Richard Henry Leo, of Virginia, in obedience to
thq instructions of tlto Provincial Convention. De
bated the next dey hi Committee of the Whole, the
resolution in favor of independence was sustained by
Lee and Wythe, of Virginia, and by John Adams, of
Massachusetts. It was oppoted by Dickinson
and Wilson, of Pennsylvania, Richard R. Living
ston, of New York, and Edward Rutledgo, of
South Carolina, not as bad or improper in
itself, but as premature. Of this important
debate, which, like all the other proceedings of the
Continental Congress, took place with closed doors,
we por'*?ss only the merest outline. John Ad.\ms, in
1817, wrote thus to a fritmd: ? "Of all the speeches
made in Congress, from 1774 to 1777, inclusive of
both years, not one sentence remains except a few
periods of Dr. Witherspoon, of New Jersey, printed
in his works. I consider the true history of the
American Revolution und the establishment of our
present constitution as lost forever. And nothing
but misrepresentations or partial accounts of it ever
will be recovered."
Several members of the Continental Congress, be
tides those named, distinguished then and after
wards for good services to their country, opposed the
resolution in favor of independence. It passed by a
bare majority, seven States to six. To give time for
greater unanimity the subject was postponed till the
first of July; but mennwhile a committee was ap
pointed, consistin;. ni 'ihomas Jefl'erson, John
Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, and
Robert II. Livingston to prepare a formal declaration
of independence. Two other committee* were ap
pointed, one to draw up a plan of confederation, the
other to prepare a scheme ol' the terms proper for
foreign alliance?, Congress being firmly con,n?
that the success of their cause greatly dependea on
diplomatic arrangements. On the 28th of Jane tlK1
committee appointed to draft it reported to Congress
a declaration of independence, which was drawn up
by Jefferson. The subject being taken up in Com- 1
mittee of the Whole on the 1st of July, the delegates
from nine colonies voted for the declaration. New
York declined to vote, as no instructions were yet
received; Delaware was divided; Pennsylvania, three
for and fonr against it; that of South Carolina one
for and three against it. When the question came
np ior final action two of the Pennsylvania dele
gates who had voted in the negative absented
thpm^lves. Mr. Rodney, of Delaware, decided the
vote of St?te in the affirmative. The vote of
Seuth Carolina was given the same way.
New York still Reclined to vote. The declara
tion was ordered td be engrossed on parch
ment, and was subsequently signed tj aN the
delegates present, including several who wife
members at the time of its adoption. The Provincial
Congress of New York, on the 9th of July, at their
meeting at White Plains, gave their sanction to th
declaration, which thus became the unanimous act of
the thirteen United States. The New Y ork delegates
in Congress, except Robert R. Livingston, were
among the signers, after receiving authority from
their constituents.
The war of the Revolution, which, in the opinion of
Washington, might have been concluded in 1779 in
stead of 1783, had the best counsels been folio ived by
Congress and the States, it will be remembered, lasted
about eight years, from its commencement, in 1775 , to
the peace of 17S3 ; but a considerable part of the time
was characterized by inactivity on both sides. The
seat of war, commencing in the Eastern States, was
transferred to the Middle States, and concluded in
those of the South. Mr. Lossing, in his " Field Book
of the Revolution," has preserved the most valuable
relics and records of " the times that tried men's
souls."

[Ki<m the Sard u>l. \ Ri'jjii'er. .luuo 20.]
The last survivor of the battle of Hunker Hill,
James McDonald, aged one hundred and five years,
is now on a visit to Boston.
Few of our citizens are aware that a little over o-ne
year ago Jnme.t McDonald spent a few days in San
dusky, nor of the occasion of that visit.
Late oDe afternoon the writer was interrupted by
the entrance of an old gentleman, who, with con
siderable embarrassment, stated thnf he was an old
Revolutionary soldier; had been robbed of all hl?
funds, his pension papers and a part of his ??lotliing.
His forehead was deeply scarred; ho had lost an ev ?.
end his hands bore marks of former conflicts. He
was tall and well formed and straight as an arrow,
whirli, with Lis military step, betokened a life in the
camp. His Scotch ncceut, uigh cheek bones, florid
complexion ana whitened locks, bordering on the
1 red, told plainly bis descent. He gave his mm as
j *?ieB McDonald, aged one hundred and four yeara
and D,~oceeded to re"te 1118 8l0I7 with a candor and'
int^liiiron e ^at at once attracted attention.
He wflB^boi n ,n Scotland, in 1748, joined the British
army when ei'gbw^",^^" ?f ff.e' ^ ll? **?

n.ent of the outbreak V'**?? ?rlfaIn1?Sd
country. He camo over1 W Ju *1 J* ?

< he American forces. He wu. > ^ i
ker Hill, the taking of Burgoyne, at ?"nu?ton and
Trenton, lo6t an eye at the murderous 3U4
naw Cornwallis surrender his sword. He u. *? 8erv?d
in the war of 1812. He was acquainted with i?earI7
all the hero generals of the Revoiation, and with aJ
our distinguished public men down to the present
day. The occasion of hit* visit to S.tcdasky was as
follows:?
He and his wife had been previously living in
Kentucky, while their only surviving ilaughter lived
at Black Rock, in the btate of New York. His wife
having died a short time uefore, his daughter wrote
him, urgently requesting him to spend the remainder
of his day s with her. In compliance with her re
quest be left Kentucky, taking a boat to Cincin
nati. Some wretched scoundrel succeeded in ab
stracting all hiB money, his papers, anil a part of big
clothing, while on board the boat. At Cincinnati a
Uii d beortcd stranger supplied him with aQ overcoat
and paid his fare to Columbup, wUe'ts he expected
to meet a fellow sol/licj. Hut at Oolnmbus he
learned that bta companion had been carried to the
t0i2?b. He then applied to the conductor who gave
him a 'ree l'nKS 10 Cleveland and directed him to call
on the auul>or*ties for a'd* made his application,
and they requi^*d to ?ee his ften?!CI} Papers. He
told tliem that he heen, robbed of lliem, ^'ien
they offered him a tiJ*et to the almshouse. Indig
nant. the old soldier turned upon his heel with the
remark that he had " fought too many battles in the
Revolution to die in a poorhouse;" and going back
to the depot, he was passed free over the load to
Shelby, and from there on the Mansfield road to
Sandusky.
During his short stay here he related many inter
esting anecdotes of the Revolution. I asked him if
he knew " Mad Anthony ?" (the name given by the
soldiers to General Wayne ) 'il should think I
ought to," he replied, " for he knocked me down
once." I bad a splendid black horse ? one that I had
brought over from England. Many a night have I
slept on the ground, while he would take his stand
over me, end there remain all night as docile as a
kitten ; but when the smell of gunpowder reached
his nostrils it seemed to transform him into a perfect
fury. But time and service had not failed to leave
th<-ir impress upon bim ; and, although he had
grown in a measure useless, there wis an affection
existing between us that would not allow me to see
bim finer, and so I kept him fat and Bleek. After
dividing my portion with him one day, while I was
out on a scouting excursion, the butcher came to
Mad Anthony to inform him that they were entirely
out of meat, with no prospects of any through the
day. Wayne told him to kill and dress one of the
best conditioned hones iuthe camp.
"On my return, my messmate informed me that the
butcher nod killed and dressed ray horse. I snatched
my naked sword, and, after satisfying myself that
my favorite's blood had been shed, started for the
butcher's tent, determined to avenge his death. The
butcher saw me coming and fled to Wayne's teat,
where he took shelter. When I reached it Mad
Anthony stood at the door. He asked me what I
wanted, I told him the butcher. He ordered me to
put my sword no and return. I refused, and at
tempted to pass him, wheu he straightway knocked
me down, (lathering myself up, I returned to the
tent and wept."
After giving a vivid description of the battle of the
Cowpens, he described a hand to hand conflict with
a British officer. Af er several thrifts and porrys,
bis (McDonald's) sword broke in the middle. He
snatched the pistol from his holster, while the officer,
following up bis advantage, gave him a thrust In the
eye, but fortunately not deep enough to reach the
brain. Here the old veteran came to a halt in his
story. When asked how the conflict finally ended,
he replied " I do not like to say much about it, as
it w< uld seem like boasting, but 1 shot him." i
He ftt&uattf the success of the American forces
, at the taking of Bnrgoyne moieto Benedict Arnold
than to General Gates. "Arnold," said he. "
I m o a ticer. Mounted on **?
..... _ w - vuurmons glossy black
charger, whoa6 mane and tan" wCHM be seen glancing
through the smoke of the fight, he seemed to be
every where present, and the life of the battle. At
one rime a small party of British had wheeled a large
coin" mi up on a little eminence which commanded
the American forces. One murderous discharge nad
tcld but too well npon the American division, when
Arnold ga?e the word to charge. Leading ou his
men, and closely followed by McDonald, Arnold
reached the piece just as the match was being ap
plied. Springing his enormous charger completely
over tl.e gun lengthw ise, and striking off the hand
of tLe gunner at a blow, lie sprung from bis hoi>e,
and sdzing the gun with a giant crisp, wheeled it
around, and applying the match, sent its death
dealing volley into the ranks of the retreating
Britain"
The: e and many other anecdotes were related with
an intelligent* and power oi' description that, would
have done honor to the historian. The old rani, al
though talkative, was perfectly free from childish
ness; and I thought w hile I bid him farewell, as he
took the brat for Bufliilo, that I had enjoyed a treat
such as no author of hi-tory could give. I had seen
a living link connecting tl.e present with the past
one who had bceu perfectly familiar w ith all the
Scenes of the Revolution. Long may he livo and re
tain his strength and vivacity? tor after him, wo no'er
shall see his like again.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.
In perusing your paj erof to-day I notice that you
d uple my name with others as having bolted or
dedged the resolutions adopted by the House of As
sembly of this State, on Thursday evening laet, en
dorsing President Tierce's inaugural address. I pre
Bcme this charge is based upon the fnlso and per
verted u pre. citations gf your Albany correspondent,
or the artide contained in the Albany Argus of
Friday morning last.
I rcspectftilly, butdccidedly, pronounce the accusa
tion, to far as It relates to myself, utterly untrue, and
am conccloua it does equal injustice to others, in
every { articular. I lclt Albany on Wednesday even
ing, without any knowledge that the resolutions were
to te called Bp during my absence; nnd. when acted
up< n, wns actually two "hundred miles distant from
the capital. Had I been present, on that oeca
sion, 1 should hr.vo voted with the majority, al
though tlie peculiar phraseology c#f the resolu
tion."-, nnd the manner in which they were introduced
and enforced, show evidently that they originated in
bad taste nnd W( ree motives on the part < f the dlnp
) ointcd can- late for the Speakership. Every hones
democrat would unite in giving his sanction to the
Baltimore platform, or the principles shadowed forth
in the inaugural address: but the resolution* mi'rht
have 1 een eqrnlly complete without being luvidions,
or framed with the covert design to destroy and di
vide the democratic party.
In the political slang of Albany, every democrat
who refufes to voto on all occasions, with the smull
democratic element of the coalition, is denominated u
1 arnbrrner; but permit me, in conclusion, to sa\ that
1 ti ter belonged to the free soil party, or endorsed
tho candidates or principles of the iJuDalo plat
form. Yours respectfully,
Joprrn Rose, Third Assembly Di strict.

The Baltimore Fire Company.
In the programme given by us ye3tcrday of the
engagements of the above company, who arc now in
our city upon a visit, there are some inaccuraoiea
that require correction.
The following is a correct list of their engagements
for the present weei during their stay, as comma,
nicafed to ua by a member of the committee of Man
hattan Engine Company No. 8, who have beea in
trusted with the duty of entertaining their visiters : ?
This day, (Monday,) the Baltimore Columbian En
gine Company No. 9, escorted by Manhattan Engine
Company No. 8, will visit the Mayor, at 10 o'clock,
A. M., and be present at the review of the military in
the Park. Both companies will be without any ap
paratus, and be dressed in private citizens clothes,
with the exception that the Baltimore visiters will
wear their fatigue caps. On the afternoon of the
same day the two companies will try tU6 Baltimore
engine in West Broadway, near Riley's Hotel, where
there is a liberty pole. For this purpose it will be re
nuihite to get mude in the course of the day, if a
workman can be obtained, a metal connector to
join the hose of Manhattan engine to that of the
Baltimore engine. This latter, as noticed in yester
day's account of the torchlight procession, is a splen
did engine; it was built by Rodgera,of Baltimore,
and is ornamented with two tine paintings, on one side
a portrait of General Washington, with his hand upon
hi* charger, and on the other a portrait of a cavalier
oftl.etime cf Queen Elizabeth, evidently intended
for Lord Baltimore, who was the first Governor of
Maryland, and from whom the Monumental City
derives its name. For the evening, two iuvitatious
have been received, but it is not yet settled which
will be accepted, one from the Corporation, to wit
ness the fireworks in the City Hall Park. and unother
to go on a night excursion up the Hudson river.
On Tuesday morning they will go on au excursion
to Flushing, proceeding by the steamboat Island
City, which will leave the foot of Fulton street, on
the East river, at 9 A. M. In the evening they will
visit Niblo's or some other theatre.
On Wednesday they will pay a visit to High Bridge,
Band all's Island , Blackwell's Inland, and other places
of note on their way. Refreshments will be pro
vided at High Bridge, and likewise at Starr's Five
Mile House. In the evening they will go to the
Hippodrome. On Thursday they will go over to
Brooklyn and view the Navy Yard, Greenwood
Cemetery, Ac., and in the evening they will be en

On Friday morning the visiters will leave our
