STORMING OF TICOND EROGA
UNDER MAJOR-GENERAL SIR JAMES ABERCROMBIE, JULY 8, 1758
POSSESSED of the most brilliant and controlling intellect, and wielding the power of a mighty empire, the fame of William Pitt attended the glory of the British arms in India, and gave new hopes to the desperațe
doubtful contest for North America. To the colonist here, his was a fit character for emulation : it excited equally the admiration of the ploughman in the field, the student in his closet, and the ranging soldier, in his daring and romantic service. No hamlet was so remote, where the English tongue was heard, that the fame of the illustrious minister did not reach it; and almost incredible response was given, from our widely-extended and thinly-populated country, to the mons for the great campaign of 1758.
To carry out successfully the vast plans for that campaign became the ambition of the man who filled the entire measure of England's greatness. The colonist saw that the whole
of the crown, and all but the crown itself of the venerable old king, now near four-score, was surrendered without reserve to a man but yesterday an ensign. Encouraged by the example of his advance to power, and by his present matchless position in the great empire which was carrying her conquests gloriously in the East, the answer to this summons from New-England, New-York and New Jersey caused both the minister and court to exult in the hope of the entire conquest of another hemisphere. William Pitt, afterward Earl of Chatham, was the man of his day; his recognition and favor of personal merit and personal responsibility made a thousand heroes, gave life to republican principles, and, without design, greatly advanced the establishment of a mighty republic.
