Shelby's firm ness and determination to pursue Proctor with such volunteers as might choose to ac company him, and leave Harrison at Maiden. lhe latter finding himself like to be left alone thought it the safer course to accompany the rmy. It is further alleged that Harrison to tally disregarded all economical considera tions, and that the expenses of his last cam paign have cost a sum extravagant beyond calculation. Claims for unprovided wagons, horses, men, provisions, &c. &c. are daily coming in to an enormous amount. But if it were otherwise, he is absent on a distant service. The President will not interfere in the business. He is known to be very friendly to Gen. Dearborn, and willing to give him almost any command, but be will do no more than express an intimation of his opinion, leaving the decision altogether to the War Department. I am of the opinion that the Secretary has deliberately made up his mind not to order Gen. Dearborn on that com mand. He thinks very favorably of Gen. zard, who unfortunately is now sick, and also of Gen. Brown; perhaps these gentlemen will be promoted to Major General, and as assigned pretty important commands. The conversation with the Secretary, which en abled meto give you this information, although not exactly confidential, partakes so much of its nature as to induce a behet that he supposed it would not be disclosed other than with pro per caution, in regard to the mama law i find many difficulties.

Washington in 1795, and arm and select corps at tne expense oi tne United States.

We this day pass a bill to encourage enlist ments, by offering a bounty of $124 in money, and 320 acres of land. It has been sent to the Senate for concurrence.

I made the proper sugges tion on the importance of a cordial co-operation in the movements of the army ou the New York frontier, with the views and wishes ot our intelligent friends in that state, and more especially with its executive. I intimated that I had reason to believe mat the assignment of General Dearborn to command of the Northern army would not be unacceptable to yourself, provided it would not interfere with the arrangements ot the war department, ana that I had much reason to believe that General Dearborn was thought well of both by the army and country, and would be more cheer fully received to command than any other .... . .

"I should not feel it my duty to inquire whether applicants for office were either Masons -or opponents of the Masonic institution. -. Whilst the fact of any such ap plicant being a Mason, would certainly not be regarded by me, as constituting a ground and foreign" influence.
