From ibf Norfolk Utr&iJ.
Tlia newspapers inform me that in a recent de
bate in tlie House of Representatives, allusion
was made to my military conduct at Norfolk, du
ring the late war. After an absence of a month
1 returned to tips place two days ago, and avail
myself of the earliest moment to notiec that allu
sion.
The National Journal of the 17th January pro
fessing to report a debate on the preceding day,
arising out of Mr. Sloane’s resolutions, represents
Mr. Randolph to have said, “ But it was time to
“ dismiss this light mode of treating so grave a
“ question. It demands a graver tone. Here we
*•' are told of a bill from, tho Senate, relative to the
*• militia. Well. On the other hand we have a
*■' buse—an anathema—got up from another quar
“ ter, by one under whose authority the tnilitia
“ men were shot at JYorfulk like so many bul
‘ • locks."
Mr. Randolph is generally happy in his ex
pressions, and none could have been more felici
tous than those here imputed to him. The pen
cil of Tacitus could not have presented in morn
vivid colours, the frequent butcheries and reck
less indifference to human suffering with which
it was intended to pourtray my military adminis
tration.
The National Intelligencer of the 19th January,
ascribes ti Mr. Randolph more measured expres
sions on this subject. “ A bill from the Semite,
‘•Jaficcting the militia laws of the U. Ssates—well,
“ sir, a bill shall 1 call it, or an anathema, got up
by some of those under whose order certain mt
*■ Utiamcn lucre shot at jYorfolk, is thrown
*'in contemporaneously—not with the bill from
t: the Senate—no, sir—that is a different affair, but
'• with this motion.” The otionce is here reduc
ed to tho simple fact, that. ” militiamen were shot
** at Norfolk.”
Mr. Randolph seems to have been soonconvinc
e I that this charge, whether expressed in the
stronger or more mitigated phrase, was rash and
unfounded. For in tho National Journal it is re
presented that during the progress of debate, “Mr.
Randolph ro3e simply to admit that he was
“ wrong in a remark which he had made rcgpect
ing the militiamen at Norfolk. He had suppos
“ ed that his information was correct, but he had
“ found that he had fallen into an error.” The
National Intelligencer referring to the same inci
dent merely state?, “ Mr. W. yielded the tloor at
“ the request of Mr. R. who said a few words in
“ explanation,” without stating what these words
were. But in the paper of the 21st is published a
card of Mr. Randolph to tho Editors in these words;
All. llililWUI['U IU|I11M» IIIU TjUIIUId U1 tilt: il a
“ tional Intelligencer to state that the “ few words
“ said” by him. “ in explanation” when “ Mr.
“ Wright yielded the floor” were to this effect:
• That having been informed (by a ft iend) that
*• • he was under an error in regard to the shoot
4 Jug of militia men at Norfolk, last war, be
44 ‘ wished to withdraw what he had said upon that
■ subject. That, although he had derived his
‘ impression from a recent, and, as he had belicv
“ 4 ed, an authentic source, yet he did not wish,
” 4 under the circumstances of the case, lor the
<• 4 allegation to go out to the world—and lie was
41 4 desirous to retract it, before it should have e.x
44 4 cited notice or remark.”
It would seem, however, (if the printed debates
are to be relied on.) that this accusation was no
sooner recalled by Mr Randolph, than reiterated
by his colleague, Mr. Floyd, 'lire National Intel
ligencer reports this gentleman to have said, 44 At
*• the same time wo do sse a General of thy United
'• States, trying soldiers at Norfolk, and shoaling
“ them too. for desertion. I knout il to be a fact,
•4 for 1 was an eye witn- - \ A gentleman m ar me
says that those tfero not militia men. I believe
two of them were. 1 derive my information
from a source entitled to it least as much credit
'• as if it was dratin from hired and pensioned let
44 ter-wiiters in one of the Departments. Hut, sir,
44 if they were not militia mm, they were men, and
“ is not the life of man dear?” Hut lie also appears
to have been convinced, before tbo debate closed,
that be was under sum' n stake, for he is repre
sented to have made some r rplanations alter*
wards. Tlio reporter states “ he was under*
4 stood, in conclusion, to state, that of two men
4 who wero tried for desertion in Norfolk, one
4 was a militia man, and one not, and that it
4 was the soldier and not the militia man who«;n
4 shot.”
There is, it is to be hoped, some inaccuracy in
this report—The statements ascribed to .Mr. Floyd
do not harmonize very well with each other, and
still Ie«s with the actual fact*.
As my conduct his been deemed by others of
sufficient moment to bo tints introduced to the at
tention of Congress and flic nation, it is aim of
sufficient mofrupt to bo correctly understood. I
desire no other vindication than a simple statement
offre4-.
1 assert and defy all credible evidence to contra
dict me, that no militia man and only one enlist
ed soldier, suffered military execution, during my
whole command at Norfolk. If the fact be other
wise, the affirmative evidence to ay easily be pro
c red to refute rny statement. The archives of
tho War Department should contain the sentence*,
in a;d of thse, the orderly hocks of the Army, and
-V vo *n'i>d in f, Jtr. iv
-upply the proof as far as it is possible to prove a .
negative; that proof will b« found in the subjoined |
statements of the Slat! and other Oliiccrs of the i

In Military a^ in Civil life, laws must exist to*

it is to apply these laws, cither in the l'oruiu or th" j

Fort Nei.so.y, llth Nov. 1813.
Sir: In obedience to your orders 1 submit the
following report—
IN illoughby Meggs, the deserter from the iiih 1
Regt. U. S. infantry, was enlisted on the 22d ol
March, 1813; lie was then 23 years of age. lie '
has been married six years, and has had by his j
wife three children, who have all died since. J
Brooke’s company, to which he belongs, marched j
from hence on the 11th of June. Meggs does not I
bear the character of a good soldier—he has been
frequently confined in the black hole and once (in
the month of May) he was tried by a garrison
Court Martial, charged with “theft and disobedi
ence of orders;” he was acquitted of the fact, but
found guilty of a “breach ol trust,” and sentenced
' to pay two dollars. On the second he was found
guilty, and sentenced to hard labor, ball and chain, i
ten days. 1 saw him this morning; he seems to be
very penitent: The anxiety he felt to see his i
wite and children, is assigned as the cause ot his
ci ime. He lias not made any attempt to escape.
The situation of his wif-, is distressing in the ex-!
treine. This poor woman, left by her husband in j
the most abject poverty, has had to struggle against I
want, nakedness and sickness—She lias buried all
her children, and has now the dreadful expectation !
to be Jell and east on the unfeeling world, the vvi- i
dow of a criminal, without being herself in tile
smallest degree the cause of her misfortunes.
Lemuel Jackson, ol the Rifle Regiment, enlist- l
ed on .b*: 9th of August, 1812 ; he was then twen- j
ty-three years ot age—-he is a bachelor—Ho was
never before under the sentence of a Court Mar- !
tial.
Joseph Poole, of the same Regiment and Com
pany . enlisted in the month ol August, 1812; he
w.ts then nineteen years of age; he is now a mi
nor. Hois a Bachelor—he was never before tin
der the sentence of a Court .Martial. I saw these
soldi i s this morning—they scoiu to be sincerely
peni’ -nt. They declare they were enticed to do
st rt. in astute of intoxication, by George Fox, ol
the same company, who had been reduced from a
sergeant to tin* ranks, and in revenge left the sef
vir> 'I he circumstance of the reduction ol Fox,
and of his desertion, is a fact. I he soldiers of this
garrison, who know these prisoners, speak well of
ilicir general conduct.

I was enlisted on the 29th of April, 1313—ho was
'hen twenty-one years of age. He is a bachelor
hu hoi deter tel three times, and was under the
sentence o/ a (,'cncral Court Martial, when last
he left the service—his character is notoriously i
had. I saw him this morning, but I could not dc-1
terinine whether be is penitent. It appeared to |

that they would be executed,

i he Greek nation fully sensible of your unwea

impressed with the deepest gratitude, and being

markable for his proles-ionrtl skill and for his vir

for two years and-a half, with cheerfulness, ability
and honor, and to the satisfaction of Government.
This excellent man, ardent to serve Greece in a

To the \kw Yoke Greek Committee—
Quarantine (Jround, Feb. 5, 1 fjt.
Gentlemen—Amid tho various contradictory,
and exaggerated account* which are circulated i
about Greece, you may naturally expect some au- ,
tlientio information, from those whose residence '
in that interesting country, has enabled them to
know the truth. As far a* relate*to the distribut
ing of the contributions which Now York so libe- '
rally sent out, your immediate agents, Messrs.
Miller and Stuyvcsant, will doubtless- give you j
full and satisfactory information; allow me only lo
remark, that they have been the mean* not only
of relivvin innumerable ca*c9 of individual mise-*
ry, of feeding tho hungry, and clothing the naked
ami houseless, but they have produced. .» good 1
moral effect upon the people: they were spread
fir and w ide, not only to tho » in tho. large towns, i
and along the sea const, but penetrated into the j
inferior, and were partaken of by thousands of j
those wretches who have escaped massacre,and J
lied from their burning villages, to the caves of |
tiro mountains; those who did not partake, heard of
them, and were cheered in their misery Ly the
thought that their sufferings were known and
ceinmisscratcd, arid that Urey were considered
worthy of having the hand, charity stretched out
to them from acioss tho globe.
This wide speadmg feeling could not fail to do
good, and encourage the people to persist in theii
noble cause; nor was it unaccompanied by grati
tude toward* the donors; thousand* who had never
heard the#namc of America, learned lo pronounce
it for the first time with a blessing; and Greece
wil never forget the kindness done her in her hour
of bitter adversity.
The situation of Greece, Gentlemen, previous
to the destruction of the Turkish licet at riavari
no, was most alarming: the overwhelming superi
ority in number, in strength, and equipments, o!
the Turkish vessels, enabled them to pour in*up
plies and reinfo, cements from Egypt and Con*tan
tinople to the Moron, and Ibrahim Pacha w ith hi*
disciplined Arabs, was prepating to sweep aero *
it, and join the hordes of the indefatigable Cutayhi. j
the conqueror of Athens, before Uoiinth. An '
whs*' bad the fJr^eVs to'-npose?—nothing—-r -t tin
hadcw of resistance, vi hout money, or wn
nuuition, or provisions, how could tiie slightest ]
i)i ce be kepi together: I ho Polojionesus must!
“VO be« u again laid waste K. would have been use- i
c*-to both parlies; lor though the Greek* could i
lot have detended it, they would have retreated
o the fastnesses of the mountain*, and long kept]
ip from them a partisan warfare: hut the mass of;
tir-people must have taken refuge in the islands. ;
—Here wie the last hope of (lie Greeks, and here
it is probable they would have made good their
'tan *, and constituted a small, but free people. *
Hut the battle ol Navarino Ins changed ail, and if .
i- probable that the future fate of Greer? will he j
docid-J in the t abiucts of Europe: if left to con- ]
tinue the struggle single-handed with Turkey, she i
will probably come olf conqueror; her fleet will be]
able to resist the enemy’s, and if the supplies are cut
oil trout Egypt only three months, Ibrahim Pacha 1
must quit the Morca or starve, and In six, every
fortress in it must fall into the hands of the Greeks.
As for renewing the attempt to conquer it by a
force from Komelia across the isthmus of Corinth, it
.would he beyond the power ol the Sultan; it would
requiio a force of thirty thousand luen, whose line
ot communication would have U>l>c kept up through
a vast tract of country, intersected by rugged moun
tains and didicult defiles, most dangerous in the
hands ot mountain warrior-; such an expedition
would probably share the fate of Dvaina All’s in
16i.f. who only saved a miserable remnant of his
•iimy, which on entering the Morea consisted of 23,
000 men.
As lor Romelia it is lost irrecoverably for the
present; but Candia, Cyprus, Scio, anil Mytilcnc,
will be recovered—anti these, with the Morca,
will constitute an important nation, and should the
cry ot the people be heard, their government will
be a republican one.
rhe Creek fleet under Lord Cochrane, is daily
assuming a more respectable appearance, and will
soon be able to make head against any naval force
the I inks can send out.
Hut, though as 1 have stated, the resources of
Greece arc nearly exhausted, and government^ias
seldom a dollar at command—yet, the spirit of the
people is not crushed: and only a few days before
tho battle of Navarino, there was fitted out, peri
haps, the best regulated and most rational expe
dition that has sailed during the war—I mean that
fur the retaking of Scio; principally got up and
regulated by Garakis. This excellent patriot, and
shrewd statesman, on the first rumors of the in
tended interference of the European Sovereigns in
tavor ol Greece, satv that they must incluae all
those partixif it actually in arms; and in order to
have Scio included, resolved to attempt the rais
ing ot the standard of revolt there. His powerful
influence over tho Sciotes induced them to come
readily into tlie jilan, and they nil cordially se
conded him. Let us give (be poor Greeks their
due, and if too often we find them mercenary and
tricki-h, when we see examples of genuine and
generous patriotism, let it be known: not only did
Garakis labor day and night upon his plan, hut all
tho Sciotes, scattered through Greece, strained
every nerve, and contributed all they could; mer
chants wound up their concerns, gave their money
into the common stock, and shouldering a musket
prepared to start and risk their lives for the delive
ry ot tluir nalive island. An expedition consist
.iug ot 1500 irregular and 1000 disciplined men,
sailed under the command of Col. Fabvi.ir, with
every necessary equipment; all the expenses of
which were paid by the voluntary sacrifices
made by the Sciotes; and a few days before I left
Greece, we heard of their safe debarkment upon
the island, with every prospect of eflecting its con
quest.
,/11‘e Gandiotcs also, were getting up an expe
dition for the re-conquest of their island; and it
the Turkish fleet is prevented from going to suc
cour it, Cundia (almost equal to tho Morca in im
portance) must, in a few months, bo in the hands
of its rightful masters.
\ ou have doubtless heard of the brilliant affair
at Salona, vvhcio Hastings entirely destroyed se
ven 1 urkish vessels, and obtained ciiinplcte mas
tery o! the Gulf of Corinth.
Thus you will see, that though the originally
small resources ot Greece have been exhausted
by a seven years’ struggle with their powerful
enemy—though tho country has been wasted, die
crops destroyed, and the villages burned, and what
is worse, broils and civil wars almost continually
kept up by the guilty intrigues of her selfish and
avaricious Chiefs, still the spirit of the people, tho*
bruised, is not-broken; and let us hope that Hea
ven has in store blessings for a nation so long anil
severely tried.
I have the honor to he,
Gentlemen, your
Obedient serv’f,

To the a iw York Greek Committee.
The followin' humorous description of one of
the chauipiousof the administration in congress, is
by a Washington correspondent of the N. Y. En
quirer:
• . Washington, Jan. 28. 1828
Mr. \Y right, of Ohio, is a leader in partibus of
the administration. He is one of those men who
are gifted with a horrible fluency of well-condi
tioned phrases and ill-savoured common-places.—
He delights in retort, and wantons in repartee.—
Ho is ever on the watch to criminate or to recrimi
nate, to detect the fallacy of an irrelevant argu
ment, and to substitute in its stead some magnifi
cent truism oi his own. For these reasons, the rank
and file of the administration rate him high, and lis
ten with attention when he rises, eager to admire
his second-hand satire, or his weighty wit. He is,
indeed, a great man, for he is unembarrassed with
the slightest obstruction of modesty, never fearful
of tiling the house, because he is always sure of
pleasing himself; never rising above the pitch of
very mean understandings, and quite insensible to
the rebuke of higher ones; he is, therefore, alike
proof to the argumentative vehemence ofM’Duffie,
the biting sarcasm of Randolph, or the restless im
patience ol a whole wearied house. In one word,
Mr. Wright has a toughness of intellectual hide
unknown since the days ofsold Dennis, who, in his
own conceit, surpassed Addison in criticism, and
l’ope in poetry. This modern shadow ofPope’s he
ro is as Indefatigable in speaking as his precursor
was in writing; oh he goes, forever creaking and
croaking like an ungreased cart wheel. The house
began, at length, k> be really in awe of his intermi
nable clattering, and there had been a creeping
sensation of restive uneasiness, a kind of convulsh e
twitching of the finer nerves, whenever ho lately
rose, as painful as the tic douloureux, and almost
as hopeless. Rut‘•(he dread of all knaves and the
terror of quacks” was fated to doom, this son of
Lethe, for to die.
On Saturday last, upon Uie debate on the resolu
lion of .Mr. Chilton, to reform abuses and retrench
expenditure*, Mr. Wright was uncommonly ag
gressive and argumentative, loquacious and long
winded, daring and d(8cu*-ive, positive and ping-1
inatical, solemn and somnolent, tormenting and (.'- j
lious. He reasoned t i tarilf up; ho reasoned the !
Uuilf down ; he made a furious onset against Floyd 1
md Carson; he made a regular onslaught upon Mr.
Randolph; ho made an it regular apokgy for Mr.
John A. King ; Jie was pleased with himself; his
admirers were elated; the administration began to
look up; the majority t'^Jook sleepy. When a
inongst the subject* of the wanton revel* of hi* c
loqucnce, lie touched the kibes of our old friend
Uroi^e Krcmcr, by observing, as a concluding re
mark, that he always listened with attention to the
gentleman from Pennsylvania, if not in expecta
tion of information, at least, with a certainty of a
iHUsement, which the gentleman seldom failed to
aflord to him and to the Hou*e; whersat our friend
Krcmcr, in hi* bc*t manner of dramatic excel*
lence, springing up with brandished arm, ami a
visage beaming with the fresh conception* of a
vigorous joke, observed in reply, that " he was
" sorry he could not reciprocate the compliment
"ofthe gentleman from Ohio, who *o far from
" a Rinsing, (he regretted to say it.) never either
“ amused or instructed the house. That the
" gentleman never arose, without reminding him i
"of an old hen, of hi* acquaintance, that was al
" ways cackling, rackling, cackiinf', but never
" laid an egg.” Mr. Krcmcr then resumed his
seat, w hilst house and gallery broke out in one in
voluntary roar, an outrageou- and inextinguisable
peal of contagious laughter. Thu speaker, polite
as he always is,struggled in vain for gravity, hut
* a* fain to join the universal chorus. Even Eve- '
rrit was evi ently thrown from his propriety into i
a reluctant smile, while the president of the IJ. S.
hank, a hearty admirer - f genuine humour, hut as I
staunch an uihnimstrniion HiaStievti lived, made |
three step* forward instiuctlvely, and found liisj
hand unconsciously locked in Ihe grasp of honest j
Ueorge Kremer.
