FllOtf THE NASHVILLE WHIG. Information lias been received from Philadelphia, stating that the directoisof the United btates Bank have declined giving this State a Branch of that institu- tion, until the law of our legislature on this subject shall have been repealed. We regret to state, that a Fire on the moining of the 24th instant, at Murfrees borough, h s destroyed a considerable part ot this improving little town, latelv become the seat of government of this state. Pension Agent. We learn that Ste phen Cantrell, Esq. has received the ap pointmgnt of Pension Agent, for West Tennessee. Head-Quarter- Camp Btotrx-r- , Feb. 6, 1818. BRIGADE ORDERS. The command of the troops, at this camp, devolves on col. A. P. Ilayne. As the camp is to be immediately the troops will be in readiness to Marchat the shortest notice com- mandants of regiments, and officers at the heads of companies, will be prepar- ed accordingly. Colonel Hayne knows how to value the brave volunteers committed to his charge, by major-gener- al Jackson. He feels no common degree of pride in being associated with the veteran troops of West Tennessee ; for he has been an jeyc witness of their fortitude and valor in the field of battle. Our reputation and safety, as soldiers, require the introduction of due subordi- nation, and regular discipline and the establishment and maintenance of a pio-pe- r police. Without discipline, even with the best materials, nothing but dis- aster can rationally be anticipated ; it is therefore necessary on the first organiza- tion of the troops, to adopt and maintain k proper subordination ; in order that our men, when they meet the enemy, may be able to act inunison, and with that effi- cient confidence and vigor, which good discipline always inspires, For the ac- complishment of the contemplated ob- jects, the commanding officer relies, with confidence, on the cordial and sincere co- operation of all the officers. The field officers will take up their q .arters in camp ; and for the suture, must not leave it, without permission. The siring of guns in camp, for the su- ture, is forbidden. The commanding general is now look- ing for us and in order to meet his wishes, we must make a prompt and ex- peditious movement. A. P. HAYNE, Insp. Gen. U. S. A. Com'dg. TRIBUTE TO VALOR. The Rifle Company, commanded by Capt. BcALE,who so signally distinguisu-e- d themselves at the siege of New-Orlean- s, have lately presented Gen. Jack- son, with an elegant SWORD. Tht workmanship is of a superior kind, and reflects much honor on the mechanic arts of our country. It is however of a massy character, and intended rather so. ornament than use. The scabbard is of gold, with suitable emblems and devices. The following is Gen. Jai tvson's reply to the Rifle Corps, on its reception : FFB. 11. The following is Gen. Jackson's answer to the letter w ritten by Capt. Beale, accompanying theaword, winch had been voted to the gen eralby the New-Orlea- Rifle Company : A'ashville, Jan. 20. Dear Sin. I cannot adequately ex- dress my grateful feelings on the recep- tion of the elegant Sword, presented throngh you b) the New-Orlea- Volun- teer Company of Riflemen. The value of this affectionate tiibute, is peculiarly enhanced, as coming from those who pai -- ticipatedin the same scenes, and encoun- tered the same dangers, which it is in- tended to commemorate. On the me- morable 23d of December, when the troops of Britain first attempted to pol- lute the banks of the Mississippi, the members of the New-Orlea- Rifle Com- pany shone 'conspicuous ; and the sew Drav e worthies of that little Spartan band, who escaped the carnage of that night, maintained their gallant reputation throughout the subsequent and repeated conflicts that characterized the Orl ans campaign, it was to choice spirits like these, that Louisiana owes her second independence, and while she numbers such ambng her sons, she has naught toil sear from foreign aggression. ,With sentiments of respect, t. I remain your obedt. servt. " ANDRI "vV JACKSON. Major T Bealz, Ncw-Orlea- n fa FEB. 16. Extract of a letter from an officer of the U S", Army, to his friend in tins place, dated la Bay, Jan 14. . Our difficulties are iust commencing. the Indians are more hostile than ever and have assembled in larger numbers than heretofore, linintrthe whole distance of the river ; we shall have consequent- ly, t0 sight our way up to Fort Scott ; the last vessels that have ascended, lost seve- ral killed and wounded. A truard has this evening joined, commanded by capt. trimmings, and we shall move immedi- ately on up the river. He lest Fort Scott on the 10th instant. There has been no engagement since the last accounts you nave received ; he informs me that all communication by the land side with the tort is cut off, being completely sur- rounded with Indians, our only access to it is by the way of the river, and that very precarious. 1 he two last expresst-- s were cutoff, and their papers destroyed. The militia have not yet joined. What adds to the unpleasantness of our situation is, that they are short of provisions, and the two vessels we expected toMiave met, iiave not been heard of; there is some reason to sear that they have attempteil to pass up the river, and have been cut off. The Indian war is about to assume a. very different complexion from what was at first anticipated by our commanding general; it will prove to be very serious, and most probably will not be terminated for some time. We nave a numerous, foe, such as they are, to contend with, and perhaps they are Indians of a different description from any we have hitherto been engaged with ; this may be consi- dered as their last struggle, and no doubt they will be desperate ; they muster ac- cording to the best accounts, about 3000 warriors. M bile Gazette. A letter from an officer of the United States army, dated Mibile, February 2, states, " thatour troops on the Flint river are closely besieged by the Indians, and that the mouth of Appalachicola river is closely blockaded by Col. Woodbine of notorious memory, with two armed schooners, manned with 500 , " Our little force is nearly starved, and is the troops lrom Georgia do not quick- ly move to their relies, I sear the Indhns will give rather an ugly account of them.'' Sew ohleans, rsii. 18. General Carroll, of Tennessee, wild was second in command to general Jack-so- during the invasion of this state by the British in 1814 15, arrived in town with his family, on board the steam-boa- t Buffaloe, yesterday morning. The gen- eral had embarked for this place on board a barge, which in descending the? Ohio struck on a sawyer, and was in- stantly cut in two and sunk. The general, losing sight of his own danger in his anxiety to save his family, consisting of his wise, child, and sister, placed t ,em on a plank, and swimming himself, with great exertions brought them safe to land. Four-me- n, belonging to the barge, were drowned. Aster wandering some time along shore, general Carroll and his family ar- rived at a small cabin, and the day follow- ing were taken up by the steam-boa- t Buffaloe. NEW-TOn- FEB. 21. AVILLIAM COBBET1'. We gatner from the report of a com- mittee of the Pennsylvania Legislature " That in August, 1797, a warrant was iss ed by chief justice M'Kean, ti ap- prehend William Cobbett, on a char ,e for publishing sundry libels against the king of Spain, and his minister the cuo-vali- er de Yrujo. On this charge the sid Cobbett was bliged to enter into a recognizance before the chief justice, iiimsel! in the sum of $2000, and two sureties each in the sum of S1000, to be " of good benaviour towards the com- monwealth and all the liege people," un-'- ii the next court of oyer and terminor."" The indictment predicated on this war- rant, was returned ignoramus but it was contended ihat a breach of the recogni- zance had taken place before bringing the suit, by the publication of" libels on the late Governor Mifflin the board of nealth of the city of Philadelphia, on the 'nemory of Franklin and Rittenhouso together with other publications, agan.sfc the Spanish and French governments the people of Virginia, and other states of the United States." The-jur- y gave a verdict for the Com- monwealth but three years having and Mi. Cobbett having lest fie state, his sureties were eventually com- pelled to pay the amount of the recog- - n ztnee. The laws of Pennsylvania on the sub ject of iibels, admit tne truth to be given in evidence, and that the jury have a gnt to determine the law and the iv ts. The committee conclude by expressing their opinion that the proceedings in the courts have been erroneous, and submit a resolution for the reiiefof Mr. Cobbett. The Euri.jiean.

    Head-Quarter- Camp Btotrx-r- , Feb. 6, 1818.BRIGADE ORDERS.

    The command of the troops, at thiscamp, devolves on col. A. P. Ilayne.

    As the camp is to be immediatelythe troops will be in readiness

    to Marchat the shortest notice com-mandants of regiments, and officers atthe heads of companies, will be prepar-ed accordingly.

    Colonel Hayne knows how to valuethe brave volunteers committed to hischarge, by major-gener- al Jackson. Hefeels no common degree of pride in beingassociated with the veteran troops ofWest Tennessee ; for he has been anjeyc witness of their fortitude and valorin the field of battle.

    Our reputation and safety, as soldiers,require the introduction of due subordi-nation, and regular discipline and theestablishment and maintenance of a pio-pe- r

    police. Without discipline, evenwith the best materials, nothing but dis-aster can rationally be anticipated ; it istherefore necessary on the first organiza-tion of the troops, to adopt and maintaink proper subordination ; in order that ourmen, when they meet the enemy, may beable to act inunison, and with that effi-cient confidence and vigor, which gooddiscipline always inspires, For the ac-complishment of the contemplated ob-jects, the commanding officer relies, withconfidence, on the cordial and sincere co-operation of all the officers.

    The field officers will take up theirq .arters in camp ; and for the suture,must not leave it, without permission.

    The siring of guns in camp, for the su-ture, is forbidden.

    The commanding general is now look-ing for us and in order to meet hiswishes, we must make a prompt and ex-peditious movement.

    have lately presented Gen. Jack-son, with an elegant SWORD. Thtworkmanship is of a superior kind, andreflects much honor on the mechanicarts of our country. It is however of amassy character, and intended rather so.ornament than use. The scabbard is ofgold, with suitable emblems and devices.The following is Gen. Jai tvson's reply tothe Rifle Corps, on its reception :

    FFB. 11.The following is Gen. Jackson's answer to the

    letter w ritten by Capt. Beale, accompanyingtheaword, winch had been voted to the generalby the New-Orlea- Rifle Company :

    A'ashville, Jan. 20.Dear Sin. I cannot adequately ex-

    dress my grateful feelings on the recep-tion of the elegant Sword, presentedthrongh you b) the New-Orlea- Volun-teer Company of Riflemen. The valueof this affectionate tiibute, is peculiarlyenhanced, as coming from those who pai --ticipatedin the same scenes, and encoun-tered the same dangers, which it is in-tended to commemorate. On the me-morable 23d of December, when thetroops of Britain first attempted to pol-lute the banks of the Mississippi, themembers of the New-Orlea- Rifle Com-pany shone 'conspicuous ; and the sewDrav e worthies of that little Spartan band,who escaped the carnage of that night,maintained their gallant reputationthroughout the subsequent and repeatedconflicts that characterized the Orl anscampaign, it was to choice spirits likethese, that Louisiana owes her secondindependence, and while she numberssuch ambng her sons, she has naught toilsear from foreign aggression.

    Our difficulties are iust commencing.the Indians are more hostile than everand have assembled in larger numbersthan heretofore, linintrthe whole distanceof the river ; we shall have consequent-ly, t0 sight our way up to Fort Scott ; thelast vessels that have ascended, lost seve-ral killed and wounded. A truard hasthis evening joined, commanded by capt.trimmings, and we shall move immedi-ately on up the river. He lest Fort Scotton the 10th instant. There has been noengagement since the last accounts younave received ; he informs me that allcommunication by the land side with thetort is cut off, being completely sur-rounded with Indians, our only access toit is by the way of the river, and that veryprecarious. 1 he two last expresst-- s werecutoff, and their papers destroyed. Themilitia have not yet joined. What addsto the unpleasantness of our situation is,that they are short of provisions, and thetwo vessels we expected toMiave met,iiave not been heard of; there is somereason to sear that they have attempteilto pass up the river, and have been cutoff.

    The Indian war is about to assume a.very different complexion from what wasat first anticipated by our commandinggeneral; it will prove to be very serious,and most probably will not be terminatedfor some time. We nave a numerous,foe, such as they are, to contend with, andperhaps they are Indians of a differentdescription from any we have hithertobeen engaged with ; this may be consi-dered as their last struggle, and no doubtthey will be desperate ; they muster ac-cording to the best accounts, about 3000warriors.

The gen-eral had embarked for this place onboard a barge, which in descending the?Ohio struck on a sawyer, and was in-stantly cut in two and sunk.

    NEW-TOn- FEB. 21.AVILLIAM COBBET1'.

    We gatner from the report of a com-mittee of the Pennsylvania Legislature" That in August, 1797, a warrant wasiss ed by chief justice M'Kean, ti ap-prehend William Cobbett, on a char ,efor publishing sundry libels against theking of Spain, and his minister the cuo-vali- er

    de Yrujo. On this charge thesid Cobbett was bliged to enter into arecognizance before the chief justice,iiimsel! in the sum of $2000, and twosureties each in the sum of S1000, to be" of good benaviour towards the com-monwealth and all the liege people," un-'- ii

    the next court of oyer and terminor.""The indictment predicated on this war-

    rant, was returned ignoramus but it wascontended ihat a breach of the recogni-zance had taken place before bringingthe suit, by the publication of" libels onthe late Governor Mifflin the board ofnealth of the city of Philadelphia, on the'nemory of Franklin and Rittenhousotogether with other publications, agan.sfcthe Spanish and French governmentsthe people of Virginia, and other statesof the United States."

    The-jur- y gave a verdict for the Com-monwealth but three years having

    and Mi. Cobbett having lest fiestate, his sureties were eventually com-pelled to pay the amount of the recog- -n ztnee.

    The laws of Pennsylvania on the subject of iibels, admit tne truth to be givenin evidence, and that the jury have a

    gnt to determine the law and the iv ts.The committee conclude by expressingtheir opinion that the proceedings in thecourts have been erroneous, and submita resolution for the reiiefof Mr. Cobbett.
