and representative to the legislature in Boston. It was said, in
a description of Monmouth, Me., that among its distinguished
individuals was John Chandler. " Gen. Chandler was the
poorest man in the settlement, and was an itinerant blacksmith.
His talents were of high order, and by perseverance and
industry he became wealthy. From poverty he rose to be a
major-general in the militia, and a brigadier-general in the war
of 1812." His commission as brigadier-general in the U. S.
service bears date July 8, 1812. He was in the General Court
of Mass., at Boston, in 1819, and the same year was a member
of the Convention which formed the constitution of Maine ;
and in 1820, was president of the Senate of Maine. He
represented Massachusetts in Congress from 1805 to 1808, and
w r as elected to the Senate of the U. S. in 1820, as one of the
first two senators from Maine after its separation from Massa-
chusetts. When a senator, a rhymer, anticipating the assem-
bling of the members in "Washington, D. C, devoted two lines
to him, as follows :

" John Chandler will be there.
Tough as steel and bold as Hector."

• He was specially appointed Ivy Gov. Sullivan, sheriff of the
County of Kennebec, over Gen. Lithgrow, to settle the disputes
and to quell the risinir rebellion in that district in 1807.

" Gen. Chandler," said Dr. Walbridge, of Charleston, S. C,
who was surgeon to the army and in the battle, " was senior
officer at the head of Lake Ontario, when taken prisoner with
Gen. Winder at Stony Creek. They had pitched their tents on
the brow of the hill, with their soldiers spread out below and
on each side. But in the night the British made a gallant sortie
to retrieve their loss of a few days before, and took prisoners
the two generals. A hard battle ensued. The Yankees main-
tained their groiind during the night. But as the command
fell upon Col. Wilson of the artillery, who had never had
sreneral command, the council of war decided to retreat to Four-
mile Creek and await the arrival of Lewis with reinforcements."

Gen. Chandler's own account of the affair at Stony Creek
was this : k ' About an hour before daylight, on the 6th of June,
1813, the alarm was given. I was instantly up, and the 25th,
which was near me, as well as the left wing which was under
Gen. Winder (owing to neglect of front pickets or other
causes, the British officers say they were not hailed until they
were within three hundred yards). I ordered Gen. Winder to
cover the artillery. At this moment I heard a new burst of
fire from the enemy's left, on our right ; and, not being able to
see anything which took place, I set out at full speed towards
the right, to prevent being out-tianked. I had proceeded but a



SIXTH AND SEVENTH GENERATIONS. 403

few yards when my horse fell under me — by which fall I
received serious injuries. Here was a time in which I have no
recollection of what passed. But I presume it was not long.
As soon as I recovered I recollected what my object was, and
made my way to the right, and gave Smith what directions I
thought proper to prevent his right from being turned. I was
returning towards the centre, and when near the artillery,
heard men who appeared to be in confusion ; it being the point
where I expected the 23d to be formed, I thought it was that
regiment. I approached them, and as soon as I was near
enough I saw a body of men who I thought to be the 23d in
rear of the artillery, broken. I hobbled in amongst them and
began to rally them, and directed them to form, but soon found
my mistake ; it was the British 49th, who had pushed forward
to^the head of our column, and gained the rear of the artillery.
I was immediately disarmed and conveyed down the column to
its rear. It was not yet day, and the extreme darkness of the
night, to which was added the smoke of the fire, put it out of
our power to see the enemy. This was all that saved their
columns from total destruction, of which some of their officers
were aware.'"

At a 4th of July dinner, Gen. Chandler gave a toast, " May
I be within the walls of Quebec." An old Scotchman present
then, said, "If you. arc, you will be there a prisoner of war."
And so he was.

His residence was near the Academy. His mills — " Chand-
ler's Mills " — were a mile north. In 1829 he was appointed
Collector of the port of Portland, by President Jackson, which
office he held until 1837, when he removed to Augusta, Me.,
and purchased the Joseph Chandler house, on Chandler Street.
, In 1822 he was one of the committee that selected Augusta
as the seat of government of Maine.

He died 25 Sept. 1842, in his 81st year, at Augusta, and his
remains repose on Burnt Hill, with those of his wife and others
of his family. •

About 1778, when he was sixteen years old, he ran away
from his mother's house in Monmouth, and sailed from Xew-
buryport in a privateer ; was taken prisoner, and was put on
board a prison-ship which went into a southern port. He told
the captain of it that he was going to run away, and not long-
after he did so, with three others. He begged his way back,
and in passing through New Jersey went into a house where he
found Maj. James Norris, of the army of the colonies, who
had married his sister, Mary Chandler. Maj. Norris supplied
him with shoes and with other things for his journey home.
When he reached Monmouth he found he had travelled, by the
circuitous route he had been obliged to take, about 1700 miles

long and hard years.
