Commander of the fort on Mud Island, Delaware, which he gallantly defended from the latter end of September to the 14th of November, but being wounded, was removed. The Augusta, British man of war, of 64 guns, and the Merlin frigate, were blown up by the fort then under his command; congress voted an elegant sword should be given to him, for his gallant defence of Delaware. For many years he has been a representative in congress of Baltimore, and for the last eight years in the senate of the United States. [Pp. 27-28.]
