Thia is the anniversary of the defeat of Winchester on the river Raisin, in 1813. The horrible massacre which followed it, has rendered it forever memorable in the annals of this country. The surrender of the American army under General Hull at Detroit, on the 16th of the preceding August, had roused the pride of the Western country in a very extraordinary degree. Volunteers poured into the camp of Gen-Harrison, who had succeeded Hull, so rapidly, that at the end of the year 1812, he found himself at the bead of a powerful army. On the 18th of January, Gen. Winchester, who commanded the left wing, detached Colonels Lewis and Allen,both of Kentucky, toFrenchtown, for the purpose of protecting the i...
