We have before us a letter from Ensign Drake, of the United States Rifle Regiment, to his friend in this city, dated Sackett’s Harbor, 16th August, three days later than Com. Chauncey’s late dispatch. We had some though of condensing this epistle, but as that would mar the spirit of the gallant Ensign’s style, we think it best to give the material part of it verbatim.
Mr. Drake, then a Sergeant, after giving an account of the plan and preparations made to attack the British in the river St. Lawrence on the 22d June, proceeds to describe this spirited enterprise in the following words: --- “ I got within fourteen yards of the rerar of the enemy --- they were busy cooking; but we kept still until the Kingston morning gun was fired --- We then suddenly rushed out of our cover, giving the horrid Indian war-whoop with dreadful yells --- drove the enemy to their boats, crying for quarter, and imploring mercy, thinking we were a host of Indian Warriors. --- At this instant, our boats appeared in front, the guns all pointed, and the post-fire ready, when the enemy surrendered prisoners, of war, namely, two commissioned, six non-commissioned officers and sixty-nine privates, one gun-boat, the Spitfire, sixteen boats full of Irish pork and bread, the best I ever tasted --- I wish I could send some of it to you it is so sweet --- It really was kind in the Prince Regent to send it to us --=- worth 10,000 dollars among fifty men, and I three shares of it --- no bad morning’s work.
--- Now you have heard the Comedy, listen to the Tragedy --- In 30 minutes, we were off the Canadian shore, but two of our prisoners made their escape and went to Kingston --- we went up Cramberry(sic) Creek and made batteries of our barrels of pork and bread, and felled trees to secure our ?ear --- Sent an express to S. Harbor for some light horse, to take off the prisoners, as they were more numerous than us --- Went to rest, but not to sleep --- Sent a boat down the Creek --- “All’s well,” says the Centinel --- I hope so, says I --- I lay down under a tree, my rifle by my side --- Pop goes the alarm gun --- pop, pop, pop go the centinels --- Are you all ready, say the Captain ___ Conquer or die,” was the answer --- By this time the red coats were cutting away the timber that we laid across the Creek, at which place there were eight riflemen, who kept up a constant fire on the enemy --- every shot must have killed or wounded some of them; we hurry on ten yards distant on a high bank; their fire flying over our heads --- [the Ensign says something not very honorable about the militia, who came to assist them in eating pork, not to fight,] The enemy sent a flag of truce, requiring us to surrender to same the effusion of human blood --- We would not let him come up, as we had only 15 men in the pork battery --- Meanwhile the boats were making their escape, our rifles stinging them like hornets. The British had 250 officers and soldiers and sailors --- 50 men was our Spartan band. We got safe to the Harbor. We received the thanks of the General --- I was introduced to him in particular as a courageous, enterprising young soldier --- he presented me with an Ensign’s commission, and I bowed, blushed, and thanked him.”

GRAND WOLF DRIVE!
TO THE MEN OF TOMPKINS COUNTY.
The Chief of the “Tompkins County Hunting Tribe,” gives notice, that the GRAND ANNUAL HUNT, will take place about the Full Moon, in the month of December next. The ground designated for this year, is the town of Newfield. Great care has been taken to survey and mark out a section of country, embracing a circumference of about twenty-five miles, abounding with Deer; and much infested With wolves, Bears, Panthers, Foxes, and other enemies of the human race. Every precaution will be used, to fervent disappointment, and to guard against accidents.
Men of Tompkins County! This is a subject in which you will all take an interest. The flocks and herds of our frontier towns, are preyed upon by the wild beasts of the forest. The repose of the settler is disturbed by the midnight howl of the Wolf, and yell of the Panther – we have determined to perform in a day, what in the ordinary course of events, would be the work of years. You desire your share of fame – of sport – of plunder – then seize the present moment. If you do not, you will regret it; and say: “The Grand Hunt has taken place. The monsters of the wilderness have been routed from their lurking places; and I was not there.” Advance then to our aid! I cannot give you the precise day of the Hunt; but you shall have notice when to come. Come in companies, half companies, pairs or singly. I will organize you for the expedition. Rid to the ground, if the distance is far: and send back your horses, or keep them until you return. But, remember that every man, who accompanies us, places himself under my command; and must submit to the salutary discipline of our regulations.
Sportsmen of the neighboring counties, will receive the right hand of good fellowship

CAYUGA AND SUSQUEHANNA CANAL.
At a numerous and respectable meeting of citizens from various parts of the counties of Tioga and Broome, assembled at Owego on the 3d of February, 1825, to take into consideration the subject of a Canal, connecting the water of Cayuga Lake and Susquehanna River – JAMES PUMPELLY in the Chair, JOHN r. Drake Secretary, the following resolutions were unanimously adopted;
RESOLVED, that as citizens of this State, we view with complete satisfaction the liberal and enlightened policy of our Governor, and legislature of late years, on the subject of Internal Improvements.
RESOLVED, That we highly approve of that part of his Excellency’s late Message which recommends the uniting of the waters of the Erie Canal and Susquehanna River; and also the appointment of Commissioners to survey and determine the most eligible route to effect that object.
RESOLVED, That in carrying into effect this plan, we are not influenced by any selfish interests and sectional advantages; that we look upon it but as a part of that grand system which has been recently developed, which carrying prosperity and happiness to the remotest parts of our country, must command the warmest support of every patriotic citizen. Feeling as we do, that general utility is reciprocally the interest of every individual, we shall most heartily concur in any determination which the legislature may be pleased to make.
RESOLVED, That from a full and impartial examination of the advantages of different routes, this meeting is fully of opinion that the connecting the head waters of the Cayuga Lake and the Susquehanna river at Owego, is the most eligible that can be adopted.
RESOLVED, That in effecting this communication, three different routes have been proposed, all demanding some consideration, viz: - One through Spencer, one through the valley of the Catetunk creek, and the other by West-Owego Creek. That as the commencement and termination of each of these is the same, the convenience of excavating and supplying the canal with weater, will determine our preference.
RESOLVED, That this meeting are fully convinced that the route by Catetunk Creek is the most eligible, for these reasons – that it is the most direct, and that it can command an abundant supply of water at all season of the year.

In the death of Mr. A. the town has suffered the loss of one of its most valuable citizens, --- the neighborhood in which he lived has parted with one beloved by all for his many virtues and kind and obliging disposition, one who was ever ready to do his utmost to promote the happiness of any fellow mortal; --- Brothers, Sisters and other more distant relations, mourn the absence of one in whom their affections centered and for whose welfare they felt an abiding interest, while an affectionate Wife of tender sensibilities, whose own happiness existed in a deservedly beloved husband, and two children of quite tender years, have been deprived of the company, counsels and conjugal and parental attentions of one whose loss can never cease to be keenly felt, until death shall re-unite the living and the departed.
As an esteemed and valuable fellow citizen Mr. Ayer will long be remembered. In all the relations of life he was a faithful friend and an honest man. The deep gloom which his death has cast over a community from whom many active business men have been removed by death within a year past, the great concourse of people at his funeral and the solemn feeling which pervades our whole population, tell plainly that an esteemed man has left us forever.
“The storm that wrecks the winter sky,
No more disturbs his calm repose,
The summer evening’s lastest sigh,
That shuts the rose?” --- Observer.
In this town Mrs. Drake, widow of the late Simeon Drake, aged 69.

At Milford, 4th inst. Hon. John Wallace, aged 56. Dr. Wallace occupied a prominent stand in this community. He represented his native town in the State Legislature, and was also a Senator and Counsellor for several years in succession. As a Magistrate, Physician, Civilion and Christian professor, he was a friend to the temporal and spiritual welfare of his fellow men --- and died in peace with hope of life eternal in the heavenly kingdom.

In Dunbarton, on Monday last, after a confinement to his room six months, John Page, esq., aged 70.
It was Mr. P’s fortune to possess through a long life, an abundance of this world’s goods, and yet, more the disposition to make all around him happy, so far as kind attentions and a liberal charity could confer happiness. His life was one filled up with good deeds, and his death was a peaceful as his life had been exemplary. Among the best farmers of the county, he stood first as an honest man, he had no superiors; he thought it better to be good than great. Having been an honor and a blessing to his native town for many years, for many years to come will his loss be severely felt by all who knew him intimately, or who shared his bounties.
“His end was peace.”
The unusual large concourse of the citizens of Dunbarton and the adjoining towns, on the funeral occasion, evinced the regard which the community at large cherished for his beloved companion, who, has been called to part with one of the best of husband’s.
“How calm is his close who fears no death;
Not rose close at eve so gently as he sink to rest.”

The Tornado Causing Great Consternation in Binghamton – A Menagerie of Wild Animals Upset – Panic Among the Audience in the Large Tent.
BINGHAMTON, N. Y., JUNE 13, 1872
A terrific gale, accompanied by torrents of rain ahd hail, passed over this city between three and four o’clock yesterday afternoon. The menagerie and aquarium tens of John Robinson’s circus were blown down and the wagons tipped over while the tents were full of people. Several persons were injured but not very severely. The crowd of terribly frightened people in the drenching, pelting storm, and amid the upturned cages of roaring, shrieking animals presented a wild and almost appalling scene.
During the storm the lightning struck the spire of the Congregational Church, the Fourth ward school house, the smoke stack of Blanchard & Bartlett’s sash and door factory, the residence of Mr. Vincent Whitney, a slaughter house and several trees within the corporate limits. A number of frames of unfinished buildings and many trees were blown down.
Terrific Effect of the Storm at Port Jervis, N. Y.
PORT JERVIS, N. Y., June 13, 1872.
About six o’clock last night a very heavy rain storm passed over this place, accompanied by most terrific thunder and lightning. Although no unusual phenomena attended it here, from the peculiar color of the sky down the Delaware valley, in the direction of Milford, Pa., it was thought that something more than an ordinary thunder storm was raging there, and the reports from there to-day confirm these apprehensions. A little before six o’clock a whirlwind coming out of the southwest, and accompanied by an unprecedented fall of rain and hail, broke on the village of Milford, and, although lasting but a few minutes, was most destructive to property and growing crops. It swept toward the northwest, leveling trees, fences, building, &c., in its course. A barn belonging to Mr. Benjamin Drake was lifted from its foundations, carried some distance and entirely dashed to pieces. Two other large bars near were unroofed and huge trees torn out by the roots. The splendid dwelling of A. D. Brown was struck by the storm and the French roof lifted off and carried over a hundred yards away. John Gailard’s hotel, near the Court House, was badly damaged. Shade trees, in every street, were blown down. And the walks were obstructed by loose branches, boards, shingles and other debris.
An orchard of twenty-five fruit trees in the upper part of the village was destroyed.
Mrs. John Rosencranse was caught in the storm while returning from her father-n-law’s funeral, and her horse became unmanageable and ran away. Mrs. Rosencranse was thrown out and narrowly escaped being killed. She was picked up near her home by her husband, and was found to have broke her arm and received other injuries. As Mr. Rosencrause(sic) was taking her in he came near being killed by a tree which was blown down near him. The toronado passed over the farm of Simeon Caddeback, prostrating orchards, fences and grain, and through William Brodhead’s place, carrying trees two and three feet in diameter along like shavings. On the Delaware River the raftsmen had a perilous time. It was impossible to control the course of the rafts, the men having as much as they could do to keep themselves from being blown overboard by lying flat on the rafts. The consequence was that several were blown with great force against the shore and against moored rafts, breaking the fastenings of the latter in many cases, and sending them without a crew down the river, at the mercy of the wind and waves.
In the midst of the storm at Milford two large oak trees were struck by lightning, adding greatly to the terror of the scene. Along the Delaware, in Sussex county, N. J., opposite Milford, a great damage was also done. In four acres of fine orchard, on the farm of George Goddard, scarcely a tree is standing, and growing grain was greatly damaged by the hail. Immense trees were twisted off like pipe stems, and on the farm of Daniel Nearpass a barn and cowshed were blown down.
The territory covered by the storm was only about four hundred yards wide, but how far it had come or where it spent its fury is not yet known. Many thousand dollars will be required to make the damage done in this section.
Fearful Tornado at Stone Ridge, N. Y.
KINGSTON, N. Y., June 13, 1872
During the storm yesterday afternoon a school house at Pawlenville, in this county, was struck by lightning, and a little girl named Merritt was instantly killed. Several other children were stunned. The storm caused great damage throughout the county. IN this city the lightning struck in several places, but no serious damage was done.
Near Stone Ridge and High P???? a tornado accompanied by a terrific thunder and lightning, swept over a narrow strip of country, causing great destruction. Two barns, owned by Isaac Hosbrouck, were blown down and totally destroyed. Two men and a team of horses in one of the building destroyed narrowly escaped being crushed in the ruins. Much damage was done by the hail to the fruit triees and grapevine, and the general damage to building, fences and other property was very heavy.
Vegetation Damaged Along the Susquehanna Railroad.
ALBANY, N. Y., June 13, 1872.
The violent rain storm yesterday did a vast amount of damage to vegetation along the Albany and Susquehanna Railroad. It was accompanied by a strong wind, which unroofed many buildings, leveled fences, &c.
The Thunder Storm in Massachusetts.
BOSTON, June 13, 1872.
The thunder storm last evening was sadly destructive of live. A daughter of Hugh Graham was killed in Lexington. In Waltham two women – Mrs. Margaret Flaherty and Mrs. O’Brien – were killed.
Lewis F. Ball was killed in Acton. Several buildings were damaged and tress hivered.

Smith, and Capt. Jeremy Drake. A report was made by the Clerk Geo. Talbot, showing that two members, Benj. F. Drake, and Saml. Capen 2d, have died during the year. The afternoon was spent so far as the rain permitted in marching and the old time movements under the command of Capt. Drake,. Upon whom ages seems to make but little impression. The opinion prevailed that the occasion had been on of the most pleasant observed by the Association.

The witnesses introduced by the prosecution this morning were Mrs. Benj. Drake, Benny Drake, Benj. Drake, sr. and Mr. F. A. Nims. The prosecution then rested and Mr. R. E. Bunker and Miss Alice E. Hitchcock were sworn on the defense.
Then the court took recess until one o’clock. All of the above witnesses testified substantially to the same things as the previous trial.
The court met after recess and the following witnesses: Miss Ham, Dr. O. O. Williams, Miss Lizzie Cavanaugh.At this time, 3 o’clock, the defense is still offering evidence. The case will probably consume the rest of the day.

DRAKE. --- Almira J. Drake died at her home in Jasper, N. Y. March 12, 1890. She was born in Middlefield, Otsego county, N. Y., July 7, 1840, and was the daughter of the Rev. R. S. Lent. Shaw converted when 14 years old, and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church. She married Sidney Drake Jan. 22, 1862 and they settled in Jasper. Her husband and two sons remain to mourn their loss. Her sickness, a lung disease, was long and painful, but through it all she was cheerful and hopeful. Toward the last she was triumphant. She said to her friends, “The gate stands ajar for me. What would I do now without this hope?” A week before her death she called the members of her family to her room and charged them all to meet her in Heaven. She often spoke of meeting her mother, Maria Lent, who died only a short time before. Living only about three miles apart they had not seen each other for nearly a year. The funeral was held at the Methodist Episcopal church in Jasper, N. Y.

Mrs. Maria Lent.
Maria, wife of the Rev. R. S. Lent, died of old age at her home in Jasper, N. Y., Feb. 13, 1890. She was born in Montgomery county, N. Y., May 25, 1804. She was converted in early life under the labors of the Rev. John Arnold, and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, of which she remained a consistent member to the day of her death. Her last utterance to her pastor was “I conquer.” The funeral sermon was preached in the Jasper Methodist Episcopal Church, Sunday morning, Feb. 16. The early part of Sister Lent’s life was spent in Otsego county, N. Y. In 1859 the family moved to Jasper, N. Y., and located on a farm near the Eight Square School House. Sister Lent had five children, three of whom survive her. In early life she taught them to fear God and to work righteousness. She lived to see them all converted. Sister Lent was a great reader, next to her Bible she read the lives of eminent men, such as Wesley Fletcher, Whitfield etc. NORTHERN CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE. Such reading gave her a well furnished mind and a well-balanced character. For many years the infirmities of old age kept her from public worship but formerly she was a regular attendant upon the means of grace. Her house was a home for the itinerant preacher. Many a rousing prayer meeting was held under her roof. Her charity led her to put the best construction upon the words of her neighbors.

STORY OF THE WAR OF 1812
CORRESPONDENT FOLLOWS TRAIL OF IZARD’S ARMY.
THROUGH LEWIS COUNTY
Finding of Old Relics and Resultant Correspondence Throws Some New Light on Local Military Operations In the Second War With Great Britain.
?. K. Shaw, writing to the Louisville Journal and Republican says:
In your paper of Jan. 21, 1904, your correspondent, George Cordone, calls attention to some relics of a mysterious military conflict, found near Deerlick rock at Glenfield. A part of his theories were eliminated in a few days by another correspondent calling attention to the fact that they could not be relics left by St. Leger and his Indian allies, as they had come to Fort Stanwix and Oriskany via Oswego, Oswego river, Oneida lake and Wood’s creek, an were more than glad to get back to Canada, probably by the same route. The gun that he mentions marked James Williss was undoubtedly one used by Lieut. James Williss in the Revolution. James Williss served three enlistments in the war of the Revolution, one in the company of Captain Abraham Westfall, Lieut.-Colonel Albert Pawling. The gun found in Lewis county might be either of the ones used in either of these services. Mr. Willis did not throw away or abandon his guns nor was he suffered to carry them off on his discharge, the regulations required that they be turned over to the commanding officer of his company, and by the latter returned to the United States arsenal. James Willis performed a third service as a lieutenant in the company of Capt. Joseph Drake in regiment of Col. Joseph Drake when his arms were sword and pistol. I judge that this gun was reissued to some soldier of the war of 1812-1815, who marched with United States soldiers through Lewis county in the latter war. In his letter to you Mr. Cordone says, “Whether any of the armies of 1812 ever passed anywhere near Lewis county is not known.” At the time of the publication of his letter, I had knowledge of one camping ground, and but one, of General Izard’s army when he marched through Lewis county in the year 1814, with 4,000 of the regular army. In the year 1850 with my father I helped cut the grass on the triangular flats about three-fourths of a mile east of Clark’s Corners, on the left-hand side of the Number Three road, and between that road and the road through Halifax to Denmark. While we were resting one noon, my father remarked, “Here is where General Izard’s army was camped. Your grandfather Shaw came out with his three boys in the morning for us to see them in camp. They encamped on this lit, and each side of the road from here to Clarks’ Corners.” This was an ideal place for a night’s camp. Higher ground either side of a clear stream of wholesome water.
At the time that Mr. Cordone’s letter was published I did not know whether Izard was marching to or from the post at Sackets Harbor, nor the location of any other camp. At the reunion of the scholars who had attended school in the old red school house at South Rutland, in June, 190t5, following the Jefferson county centennial, Mrs. W. P. Payne related some incidents from her mother, and her grandfather, Deacon James Brown, who many years lived in the brick house midway between Copenhagen and South Rutland, which some years ago was destroyed by fire, showing the ARMY MARCHED THE Harbor road. From the condition of the roads in the now country I concluded a camp was on that branch of Sandy creek, near the Waldo farm or on the creek, or near the Eames home. And there must have been a camp at Lowville, as it is a full day’s march over new country roads from Lowville to Clark’s Corners. The rest of the march can now be reclaimed from tradition in the southern part of the county, in Dr. Hough’s History of Jefferson County he writes in regard to the march of Izard’s army; page 516: “General Izard arrived September 16, 1814, with 4,000 men, at Sackets Harbor from Lake Champlain, by the circuitous route of the Mohawk and Black River valleys, and on the 19th 3,000 men embarked, but a gale prevented their sailing until the 21st. On the next day they landed at the Genesee river, and reached Batavia on the 26th.” By an order of September 27, from the secretary of war, he was “directed to take command of the Niagara frontier.” Gen. Izard’s army was that part of the regular army stationed about Lake Champlain. Apparently their route to Lowville through Lewis county was the state road.
Dr. Hough in his history of Lewis county, page 302, says: “The route through the county became a thoroughfare of armies, and every resource of the valley was called into use to supply the troops passing through, or the garrisons on the frontier. The first body of regulars that passed was Forsyth’s rifle company.” And mentions in a note that Shadrack Snell of Martinsburg enlisted in it, was taken prisoner and died in Dartmore prison. In addition he says.
“Armies under Generals Dearborn Izard, Covington and Dodge, beside many small parties of regulars, marines, militia and sailors, trains of artillery and arms under escort, went through at various times.” He mentions in a note that “General Dodge’s brigade of about 1,000 men” (Mohawk valley militia, descendants of the heroes of Oriskany) “was quartered for a few days at the old Academy.” This make the Academy campus hallowed ground. The command that came in with Dearborn were regulars. Any one of these commands may have had a soldier to whom had been issued the old flintlock that James Willis had used and by some casualty have been left where it was found. There is no doubt it is a genuine Revolutionary relic, and some organization of the Sons or the Daughters of the Revolution should secure it for safe keeping. There must be some resident of the southern part of the country who have heard their fathers speak of the march of these armies and their camps. The study of this subject has reversed the opinion formed of the campaign about Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence. Tradition told of the attacks and of the militia running, some as far as Turin and Leyden. In both of the attacks on Sackets Harbor the English were repulsed, and they suffered such severe losses that they were unable to accomplish their design. The battle at the mouth of Sandy creek, was as complete for its numbers as was that of Jackson at New Orleans. The English commander at Sandy creek was so completely overwhelmed that he surrendered his whole force at the second volley. The American campaign against Fort York, now Toronto, was a grand success and the place and fort captured. It was a substantial foothold upon the north side of Lake Ontario, and gave them an opening to capture Kingston, and hold both sides of the St. Lawrence above the Thousand Islands. Every move of the United States in New York was successful but the ill-starred march from Sackets Harbor towards Montreal in November which came to grief at Chrysler’s Field the 11th of November. To appreciate how successful were all the movements in New York one needs only read the report of the English commanders and see their lists of casualties. A portion of a regiment of militia badly posted retired, but two companies held their ground and did not know that the balance had retired to the fort by the barrack, but the main body of troops held their ground until the English retired.
