In July 1813, he was part of the Expedition of Governor Meigs for the relief of Fort Meigs, which had been besieged for a second time by General Henry Procter and Shawnee chief Tecumseh. On the evening of the second day's march, his regimental commander Colonel Ferguson convened a court martial for a member of the regiment, and appointed Bond as Judge Advocate, in his first appearance as a lawyer.
He returned to Chillicothe and was admitted to the bar. Between March 4, 1835, and March 3, 1841, Bond served in the United States House of Representatives – as an Anti-Jacksonian to the Twenty-fourth Congress, and as a Whig to the Twenty-fifth and Twenty-sixth Congresses. During his final term, he served as chairman of the Committee on Public Expenditures. He declined to be a candidate for renomination to the Twenty-seventh Congress, instead moving to Cincinnati and continuing the practice of his profession. He was appointed surveyor of the port of Cincinnati by President Fillmore, serving in that role between May 2, 1849, and September 28, 1853.
