THE HOMAGE OF JUSTICE.
Wehave compiled, from vaiious sources, the
fullowmg disinterested testimonials, which were
commanded from their several authors by the lof
ty patriotism, valor talents and success of Gen.
Harbison, long before he was named for the Pre.
sidency, and in times which ought to give them
weight sufficient to bear down all the petty calum.
nies and quibbling objections which party malig
nity may now presume to forge against the war
worn and time-honored patriot and soldier.
Tho authorities we present against the puny
attacks ol Loco-roco Federalism, and which we
shall stereotype as an impregnable barricade a
gainst all opposition, are no less than the Con
oressof the United States, the Legislatures
or Indiana, and of Kentucky, J auks Madi-

James Madison, in special message to Con.

While it is deeply lamented that so many va'n

An ample force from the States of Kentucky

the addition of a few regulars under the command
of Brigadier Gen. Harrison-, possesses the entire
confidence of his fellow soldiers, among whom are
citizens, some ot tliein volunteers in the ranks, not
less distinguished by their poliiicul stations than by
their, personal merits.
In Mr. Madison's message of Dec. 1813, tlie
compliment was extended, as follows :
The success on Lake Erie having opened a pas
sage on the territory of tho enemy, the officer com
manding the Northwestern arms, transferred the
war thither, and, rapidly pursuing the hostile
troops, fleeing with their savnga associate, forced
a general action, which quickly terminated in tin

there were two military men in the West, and Gen.
Harrison is the first of the two."
Messaeo of Symon Snyder, Governor of Pa.
Dec. 10, 1813.
" Already is the brow of the young warrior,
Croghan, encircled with laurels, and tho blessings
of thousands of womun and children rescued from
the scalping knife of the ruthless savages of the
wilderness, and from tho still more savage True
tor, rest on Harrison and his gallant army,"
In the Legislature of Indiana, on the 12th Nov.
1911, the Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Gen. Win. Johnson, thus addressed General Har
"Sir The House of Representatives of the In
diana territory, in ther own name, and in behalf of
their constituents, most coruially reciprocate the
congratulations of your Excellency on the glorious
result of the late sanguinary conflict with the Shaw
nee Prophet, and the tribes of Indiana confederated
with him ; when we see displayed in behalf of our
country, not only the consummate abilities of the
general, but the heroism of the man ; and when we
take into view the benefits which must result to
that countn firm those exertions, we cannot, for at
moment, withhold our meed of applause."
The following resolve of both houses of the

effect on the nerves of those who circulate the

L?"iM-u:-e of Kentucky, Jan. 7, 1312.
Resolved, By the Senate and House of Repre
sentatives of the State of Kentucky, that in the late
campaign against the Indians upon the Wabash,
Gov. William Henry Harri-on has behaved like a
hero, a patriot, and a general ; and that for his cool,
deliberate, skilful and gallant conduct in the battle
of Tipecanoc, he well deserves the wu rinest tiiiiiik-s
of his country and his nation.
Gen. An'hony Wayne, in his Lc'ter to tho Sec

sanguinary Indiuu Little, in 1702, said :

Col. Richard M. Johnson la Ccu. Harrison, July
I, 1913. says :
" We did not want to serve under entrants or frnt-
tors ; but under one Ihrrison who had proved him-
tell to be wise, prudent and brave."
Commodoro Perry to General Harrison, Au
gust 18, 1817, pays:
"lhe prompt charge made by you in the order
of battle on discovering the position of the enemy,
has always appeared to me to have evinced a At'ft
degree of military talent. I concur with the vener
able Shilby in his general approbation of your con
flict in that campaign."
Tho opinions of the Hon. Lanodon Cheves,
of the importance of the victoiy of the Thames
and the bravery of Gen. William Henky Har
rison: "7Vic victory of Ilirrison, was such as would hate
ecurcdloa Roman General in the best dnvs of the
Republic, the honors of a triumph! He put an end
to the War in the uppermost Ccnnda."
Sentiments ol the Hero ol lort Stephenson,
Col. Croghnn, now of the War Department:
"I de-ire no plaudits which are bestowed upon
me at the expense of Gen. Harrison.
"I havo felt the warmest attachment Tor him as
i man, and my confidence in him as an able com
minder remains unshaken. I feel every assurance
that he will at all times do meamp'.e justice; nnd
nothing could give me more pain than to see his en
emies seize upon this occasion to deal out their un
friendly feelings and acrimonious dislike; and as
long as he continues, (as in my hu.nule opinion he
has hitherto done,) to make the wi ost arrangements
and the most judicious disposition, which tho forces
under his command will lustily, I shall not hesitate
to unite with tho army in bestowing upon him tluit
cnnf.tknce uhich he so richlu merits, nnd which has
on no occasion been withheld."
