FORT Dayton, New York. Sunday, September 8th, 1776.-Orders issued by Col. ELMER, September 6th, 1776 :

“ GARRISON ORDERS.

“ PAROLE-WASHINGTON. " Officer of the day, to-morrow, Capt. Seeber.

"The guard in garrison to consist of 1 Sergeant, 1 Corporal and 24 Privates. A Corporal and 6 Privates to mount guard at the Colonel's quarters. The officer of the guard to send a Corporal and 4 Privates round with the drums to beat the tattoo at 9 o'clock, will beat up as far as the Colonel's quarters and along the main street; the other way, as far as Col. Bellenger's. The officer of the guard will send a patrole round the main street, as far as any soldier's quarters, at 10 o'clock, who are to make pris. oners of all that they find out at that time. The patrole are to guard again between the hours of 3 and 4 for the same purpose. The officer of the day will go the guard rounds between the hours of 11 and 3 o'clock, and see that the guards are vigilant in their duty. The officer of the guard is to visit the sentries every four hours during the night, and to see that the sentinel next the guard house every half hour cries out, all's well-passing it round from sentinel to sentinel-confining those who are negligent in this part of their duty.

“The Colonel recommends to all under his command, as they regard their honor or safety, that they avoid all kind of plunder; but that public and private property be kept inviolable.

“The commanding officer of each company to make a true return of the state of the arms, accoutrements and ammunition be. longing to his company, that the commanding officer may know the state thereof this evening, in order to supply those who need as soon as possible.

"SAM'L ELMER, Col."

One of the Oneida Chiefs arrived here some time last night with information that there are 7000 Regulars and Indians now fortifying at Oswego, and making preparations to cross the Lakes; that when the Regulars arrived, they sent their Indians they then had, which were considerable, to the other Indians to come and join them, or else they would come up and destroy them root and branch-upon which the Cayugas, Onondagos and Senecas immediately fell in with them; the Oneidas and Tuscaroras still holding to their integrity and appear ready to assist us. No doubt a bloody battle must ensue if those blood-thirsty savages and George's men, who are worse than savages, cross the Lake. God grant we may have success!

The men were busily employed, notwithstanding it being a day of rest, in digging the trench round the fortification, under Capt. Walker.

Col. Elmer dispatched an express to Albany this afternoon, to in. form the General of the express he received from the Indians.

Monday, September 9th, 1776.-P. M.-Lieut. Patterson returned from Albany. Brings more authenticated reports concerning the battle fought on Long Island between the King's troops and those of the American States. Generals Sullivan and Sterling are certainly taken prisoners; and General Parsons stood a very narrow chance therefor. It is said about 600 of our men were killed and 1800 of the King's: if so, although they obtained the ground, we certainly got the best of the battle. Busy towards evening in preparing some of our men, in order to march with Mr. Patterson to-morrow for Fort Schuyler.

Had ball play for some time in the afternoon, at which the Col. onel was a jovial spectator. Visited the sick, &c., in the evening.

Tuesday, September 10th, 1776.-Got up at reveilee beat and gave out to our men cartridges for their march, who were fixed out, and set off about sunrise. These which follow, viz., Jona. Lummis, Corporal Richard Burch, Isaac Hazleton, Abr’m Hazle. ton, Jno. Burroughs and Samuel Potter, leaving the remainder bebind. After they were gone I went out and attended to the sick. Lieuts. Tuttle and Quimby and Serj. Wilkinson came up here to-day in a wagon, being unwell; and, after staying some short time, proceeded on to Fort Schuyler, leaving the company behind to follow after.

Wednesday, September 11th, 1776.--The former part of the day was spent in attending the sick, &c., and reading Le Drans's Chi. rurgical works.
