following REPORT,

Mr. Andrew Stewart, from the Committee on Inralid Pensions, to whom was

referred the petition and papers of George W. Whitten, asks leave to report:

That said Whitten enlisted in Captain Oliver Herrick's company, Colonel Henry McCobb's regiment, United States army, on 14th December, 1812. On the 3d of June following he was ordered on board the Growler, Captain Sidney Smith, and was in the engagement with the enemy's flotilla on the river Sorel, near Isle Aux Naux, received a wound from a musket ball in said engagement, and was taken prisoner. The ball entered the posterior part of the right thigh, and came out about an inch above the knee. The evidence of the surgeons is that he is threefourths disabled ; and the above facts being well substantiated, and being satisfied that the present disability is in consequence of the wound, your committee ask leave to introduce a bill.

CONGRESS,

OZIAS HART.
[To accompany bill H. R. No. 781.]

FEBRUARY 23, 1855.

Mr. A. STUART, from the Committee on Invalid Pensions, made the

following REPORT.

The Committee on Invalid Pensions, to whom were referred the petition and

papers of Ozias Hart, of Seneca county, Ohio, ask leave to report: That said Hart was captain of a company composed of persons over 45 years of age, and others not subject to military duty, and formed part of Colonel John McMahan's regiment of New York militia. That he entered the service about the 15th of December, 1813; was present at the battle of Black Rock, where he was wounded; and that he remained in the service until about the 1st of March, 1814, and was honorably discharged. Captain Hart is satisfactorily shown to be a man of good character, and he swears to the facts set forth above. He is also sustained by David Griggs and William Wilcox, who were privates in another company in the same regiment, and who have received bounty-land warrants for their services. Hart is also sustained in full by Hiram Hart, who was in a position to know Captain Hart's services. This testimony, although such as fully to satisfy your committee, is not such as is required at the Pension Office, and ihey therefore ask leave to report.
