Poughkeepsie. In answer to his letter of 26th inst. he explains that his idea was that Clinton should ask Washington to let the troops remain on the frontiers until they were needed for the operations below, thus saving a stretoh of valuable country; fears the Whigs will try to make terms with the Tories; this will have a bad effect, especially in Tryon County; with regard to the city regiment he urges that examples should be made of those that neglect.
