JUNE, 1935 55 posal you can succeed in carrying Kingston, you will accomplish much. Their militia are worse than ours, being, in fact, good for nothing." The Treaty of Ghent was ratified by Congress on Feb. 17, 1815, and, at last, the Americans abandoned all hope of hoisting the Stars and Stripes from the flagstaff on the Stone Frigate. fThe author is very grateful for the assistance given him by Hugh M. Flick, Esq., sometime Supervisor of Public Records in the State of New York and a staff member of the N. Y. Historical Society, and also to the staff of the Dominion Archives, Ottawaj GIFT TO THE CULLEGE The officers of Lord Strathcona's Horse CRoyal Canadiansj have most generously presented to the College a very handsome cup for annual competition at "Dummy Thrustingf' The cup is beautifully en- graved with the crests of the Regiment and of the College. We hope that in our next number we shall be able to print a picture of this new trophy. 'C FAITHFUL SERVICE i' cc HE undermentioned horses having been destroyed are struck off strength as from 27th February, 1935, R.M.C. Nos. 2, 24, 25 and 29", Underneath this bald statement which appeared in Part II Orders is a story of faithful service. How many ex-cadets remember these horses? No. 2, a Bay Mare, known as Deuce, No. 24, a Brown Mare, called Peggy, No. 25, also a Brown Mare, who rejoiced in the name of Maggie, No. 29, a Liver Chestnut Mare, named Collie. No. 24 was twenty-six years old and came to the Col- lege in 1915, from Depot Squadron of the Royal Canadian Dragoons. The other three were all twenty-five years old and were transferred to R.M.C., from the R.C.D., on re- organization of the Permanent Force in 1919, after previous service with that Regiment. The Authorities are kind to old horses who have given faithful service, and instead of ordering them to be sold to the highest bidder, who might or might not take care of them properly, they have them painlessly destroyed. These four horses gave faithful service to their coun- try for twenty years, were seldom sick or sorry, and now are gone. "May they have plenty of clear water and green grass in the Elysian fields." -W. E. G

5-1 R.M.C. REVIEW' ston offensive despite the adverse winds. But it was feared the British had meanwhile concentrated reinforcements in the town. In Europe, on Oct. 18, Napoleon was defeated at the Battle of Leipsig. Eager to gain a victory before the close of the season, Armstrong pushed towards Montreal. Wilkinson was to proceed along the St. Law- rence and unite with General Hampton who was at Plattsburg with about 5,000 men. The latter advanced over the Lake Champlain route. Two events wrecked the campaign. At Chrysler's Farm on the North Shore of the St. Lawrence 2,500 men from Wilkinson's army under Colonel Boyd were repulsed by a Canadian force commanded by Colonel Morrison. Soon after, 900 Canadians with Colonel de Salaberry succeeded in defeat- ing Hampton's entire expedition at Chateauguay. Armstrong withdrew the remainder of his men to Winter quarters at Plattsburg. The War Department of the United States paid scant attention to Kingston during 1814. Fruitless designs in the past had rendered the project less attractive. Moreover, Sir James Yeo had increased his strength and the Kingston garrison was rapidly becoming an important clearing point for all military operations in Upper Canada. An English commentator on the American conduct of the war analyses their record thus: "Vacillation over the capture of Kingston furnishes us with a specimen of that caution which contributed more than our few troops and weak batteries to the salvation of the Canadasf' On April 1, 1814, the final Wilkinson campaign began. With 3,500 men he attacked a British force of 1,800 occupying a strong position near Rouses Point, N.Y. The engagement took place at La Colle Mill and re- sulted in the complete defeat of the Americans. Subsequently Wilkinson was suspended. In Europe, at precisely the same time, Napoleon's spinning war-wheel lost its momentum and the allied armies entered Paris. Ten days later, April 11, the Emperor abdicated at Fontainbleau. Shifting our attention back to Canada, Jacob Brown is discovered preparing a great offensive along the Niagara frontier. His efforts were abruptly terminated on July 25 at Lundy's Lane where he received a seri- ous wound. Kingston was still regarded as the prize plum. Brown spent many a night figuring a way to destroy this the keystone of the British system. But the trouble was that Yeo "vapored" more effectively now than ever before. Chauncey's utter lack of enterprise drove Brown to exclaimz "His attitude would be very reasonable and proper provided the fleet of Lake Ontario was his personal property, but I have been induced to believe it belonged to the nation." Brown's viewpoint was revealed in the following dispatch to Chaun- cey: "All accounts agree that the enemy force at Kingston is very light. There is no doubt resting in my mind but we have between us sufficient means to conquer Upper Canada within two months. For God's sake let me see you l" Peace negotiations between Great Britain and the United States were opened at Ghent in August, 1814. Yet we learn that General Brown sent a message concerning Kingston to Major General Izard, the officer in command at Sackett's Harbor, on Sept. 11. It said: "If, with the aid of the fleet and the forces at your dis'
