John 9. Williams was the accomplished bri

company reached tho encampment at the
White House, where Commodore Porter had
friaced a few cannon on the Bluff to arrest,
f possible, the passage down the river of the
British frigates KuryTes and Sea Horse, with
their smaller craft laden with flour, after the
capture of Alexandria. Thcso cssels had
to pass down tho channel on tho Virginia
bide, within rifle-shot of tho imperfectly con
structed baltety; and in the brier engagement
which followed, on the 5th September, our
company had one man killed and six wound
ed Other casualties occurred in Com Por
ter's command. Capt. Gordon, in his report
to tho British Admiralty, acknowledged tho
loss or Injury of thirty-fit e men
But this is a digression. Tho week after
the capture of Washington and destruction
of tho President's House and other public
buildings, President Madison returned to the
city, and was quartered in the house of Dr.
Thornton, on 1 street, now occupied by Dr.
Thomas Miller. This fact I recollect per
fectly well, for I was on guard in front of
tho house one night for two hours, and the
next night for two hours at tho corner where
Dr. Stone's house now stands.
I not only recollect the Thornton building
on F street in 1814, but tho row of frame
houses nearly opposite, and the thrco brick
houses on tno corner of Thirteenth and Y
streets, ono of which was occupied by George
Kleibcr as a tavern, and another as a tanrn
by Gcorgo Miller.
I recollect tho frame Btore-houso of George

privileges of an "old inhabitant," but for his

when there were only two frame houses (bo
sides tho almshouse) north of tho site of the
Patent Office, one of which is jet standing
on Fourteenth street, near Vermont avenue
The first houses on Se enth street were those
of Mr. Leonard Harbaugh and Air. George
Sweeney. Next was tho National Intelli

ley built, on tho corner above, what is now
known as the Post Office Rostamant.
1 he first building on Seventh street north
of tho Patent Ofiico was erected by Mr
