Pl'T-IN-BAV. June 'JO. 1011
After trio battle of Lake Erie Commo
dore Perry took his prisoners to Buffalo
and his prizes to Erie, where his flagship,
the l/awrence, which had been so sadly
battered bv the British puns, sank in
thirty feet of water just inside the en
trance to the bay. Hastily refitting and
repairing the other ships, he mailed for
Port Clinton and there. 011 the LVth of
September. 1M3. began ferrying Oen Har
rison's army toward Canada.
The loads of troops were taken first to
Put-in-Bay. As fast as they discharged
their human cargoes the ships returned to
Port Clinton for more. When the entire
army of "."<?> men were encamped on
South Ba<-s island Perry began to move
them thirty-eight miles farther toward
Canada, to Middle Sister Island, and when
they were all encamped there the third leg
of the journey was completed in the same
way, ami they were all landed safely on
the Canadian shore September ?7. leav
ing his fleet for the lime being. Commo
dore Perry accompanied Oen. Harrison as
aid-de-camp and took part in the battle
of the Thames, where he displayed great
After tne defeat of Gen. Proctor and the
death of Tecumseh Perry conveyed Har
rison and his troops back to Port Clinton
and then sailed for Erie, where the little
fleet which had performed such important
service was laid up for the winter in
Presque Isle ba>. Ar the close of navi
gation Commodore Perry started for the
Atlantic coast, accompanied by his
brother. Midshipman Alexander Perry, and
the four gallant tars who rowed him
from the Lawrence to the Niagara during
the battle of Lake Erie. He was received
with enthusiasm everywhere, crowned
with every honor that could lie conceived,
presented with medals, testimonial swords
and other weapons, and finally reached
Newport, where he was appointed to com
mand the sloop Java, and went to Balti
more to assist in the defense of the Poto
mac and Chesapeake bay.
Served in Barbarv War.
Commodore Perry was actively encased
during the remainder of the war of 181?,
and in 1*1?? sailed. !n command of the
sloop Java, to serve under Commodore
Decatur in tlie Barbary war.
During his stay in the Mediterranean
a controversy occurred between Perry
and.John Heath, captain of marines, on his
ship. One evening two marines jumped
ini? the sea and swam ashore, deserting
tlie j-'iiip. Capt. Heath was summoned
instantly, but deliberately delated an
swering t iie call, and when questioned
responded in such an indifferent manner
that Perry placed him under arrest.
Heath wrote a letter to his superior
filled with contemptuous and insolent re
marks. whereupon Perry sent for him
and inquired the reasons for his course.
Heath replied with' a flood of profane
abuse, whereupon Perry knocked him
down. I^ater Perry offered an apology,
which Heath declined to accept. Both
were court-martiaied. Heath was found
guilty of disobedience of orders, disre
spectful language. insolent conduct
toward his superior officer, and Perry 1
was found guilty of striking a subaltern.
Three years later Heath visited Rhode
Island and challenged Perry to a duel.
Perry accepted the challenge, because,
as he explained in writing to Commodore
Decatur, his commanding officer, who
consented to act as his second, he felt
under obligations to make an atonement
for violating rule;-' of the service- He
was determined, however, not to return
Capt Heath's fire.
The duel occurred October 10. 1818. on
the Jersey shore of the Hudson river
near Hoboken. Perry received the fire of
Capt. Heath without returning it. Com
modore Decatur then stepped forward,
read Perry's letter and asked if Heath
was satisfied. Heath acquiesced and the
party returned to New York.
Died at Port of Spain.
In the summer of 1810 Commodore
Perry sailed from Norfolk in the ship of
war John Adams to congratulate Simon
Bolivar, who had established a republican
form of government at Angostura, Vene
zuela. on the Orinoco river. Having wit
nessed the signing of the constitution of
the republic, he departed down the ri\?-r
for the Island of Trinidad A few hours
after his arrival at Port of Spain, on the
evening of his birthday. August 1M?,
his brilliant career was suddenly closed,
at the age of thirty-four years, by an
attack of yellow fever. The British au
thorities paid every possible mark of re
spect to his remains, which were buried
in the cemetery of that cits Seven years
later the body was removed to Khode
Island, where a monument was erected in
his honor.
The Congress of the Inited States
voted him a gold medal and sword after
the battle of Lake Erie, but gave him no
? ?tiier reward: the state of Kliod.- Island
erected a substantia! granite monument
to his memory. It stands upon a grassy
mound 011 the west side of the Newport
t emett ry and his remains and those of
several of his descendants are buried
around it.
On the four sides of the pedestal are
the words:

Entered Navy at Fourteen.
When Oliver Mazard Perry was a b?y
of fourteen he entered the navy as a mid
shipman: w hen he twenty-two he was
a lieutenant in command of the schooner
Revenge, fourteen guns; when he was
| twenty-seven he fought the battle of I-ake
I Erie. Before this achievement and during
his boyhood lie saw much active service
i in the Mediterranean under Commodore
Decatur, and, after the close of the war
with Tripoli, cruised around in various
[ ships until the war of INl'J broke out,
when, at his own request, with a portion
of his officers and crew he was trans
ferred to the command of ("apt. Isaac
Chancey at Sacket's Harbor, Lake On
In the meantime, at the suggestion of
? 'apt. Dobbins, the Navy Department had
ordered the construction of a fleet of gun
boats at Erie to protect the lakes, and
Commodore Chauncey sent Perry down to j
inspect them, lie found them partly fin
ished and defended only by a few raw
volunteers under ("apt. Dobbins, who was
without arms or ammunition. Perry in
fused every one with his dynamic vigor
and. at his own request, was placed in ,
command of the little squadron which j
' was completed July P>, IM.'t, but lie was ?
compelled to wait two or three weeks for
guns and crews. At sunset the day be
fore the launching of the fleet at Erie
Perry left that place in an open four
oared boat to join Chauncey in an at
tack upon Fort George at the mouth of
Niagara. His sailors towed all night, ar
rived at Buffalo the next day, and par
ticipated in the tight Perry commanded
the marines
Commodore Perry wrote his famous dis
patch to Gen Harrison with a lead pen
cil on the back of a private letter, which
lie held on the crown of his navy cap
while he was writing:
"We have met the enemy and they
are ours: two ships, two ?rlgs. one
schooner and one sloop."
Eater he sent a brief and modest re
port to the Secretary of the Navy by
a courier on horseback via Pittsburg,
j There were no telegraph lines in those
I days.
When Perry was congratulated upon his
escape from the terrible carnage on his
flagship, the I,awrence, he said gravely:
"The prayers of my wife prevailed to
save me"
Mrs. Perry was Elizabeth Mason,
daughter of a Newport physician. They
were married in 1811.
Guns Used for Signaling.
The guns used by Perry's men and
those captured by htm from the British
remained in a warehouse at Erie until
1JCT?, when they were transferred to the
Havy yard at Brooklyn. When they
reached Buffalo the program for the
ceremonies at tTie inauguration of the
Erie canal was being arranged, and per
mission was obtained from the Nav v De
partment to use them for transmitting
signals. They were placed at certain in
tervals along the canal and Hudson
river and were fired one after the other in
succession to announce the opening of
the canal In that way It took only one
hour and twenty minutes to convey the
news from Buffalo to N>iv York city.
