inner title page.
K. As we must exclude not only the whole of
this manly letter, but many coiemporary statements
ami opinions ot M10 most eminent, brave and hon
orable men, who spoke and wrote respecting Gen
eral Harrison during the war, and after its conclu
sion, wc can only hope that the Whig presses
throughout the state will give such unbiassed testi
monials a vide circulation. Some of the presses
of the administration have refused them an inser
tioneven for pay ! We deem it not inappropriate,
in connexion with what follows to make good our
allusion to Mr. Van Buren s vote against IWadison
by referring the reader to the 20th ptige of his own
biotrranhv, written by his friend, (Professor Hol
land) in 18:16. Obliged to admit it, he nevertheless
tries tu palliate it, in the outset, and gloss it over
in the end, by the following remarks, which we
copy from page 1 M,
"Although Mr. Clinton's policy had assumed the
strongest anti-democratic character, yet the splen
dor of his abilities, his former public services, and
his personal weight of character drew temporarily
to his support, no inconsiderable portion of the for
mer democratic party."
This may servo for the political friends of tho
war of 1812 at this dav but the following, we ap-
nrehend. will be rcearded as rather better evidence
of republican principles and tear doctrines about the
time the. vorl; ti-as 111 iianu.
In the Legislature of Indiana, 011 the 12th Nov
IS11, the Spcokcr of the House of Representatives,
Gen. Win. Johnson, thus addressed General Har
"Sir The House of Representatives of the In
diana territory, in thcr own name, and 111 behalf of
their constituents, most connally reciprocate the
congratulations of your Excellency on the glorious
result of the lute sanguinary conflict with the Shaw
nee Prophet, and the tribes of Indians confederated
with him; when wc see displayed in behalf of oor
country, not only the consummate abilities of the
general, but the heroism of tiie man ; and when we
take into view the benefits which must result to
that country form those exertions, we cannot, for a
moment, withhold our meed of applause."

Resolved, By the Senate and House of Repre
sentatives of the State of Kentucky, that in the late
camnaiirn arraiust the Indians upon the Wabash,
Gov. William llenrv Harrison has behaved like a
hero, a natriot, and a general ; und that for his cool,
deliberate, skilful and gallant conduct in the battle
of Tipeconoe, he well deserves the warmest thanks
ol his country unci ins nauoii.
James Madison, in a special message to Con

While it is deeply lamented that so many valu

Air The Spy in Washington, who. usually, has
very accurate information of the intentions of the
administration, says that most if not all our for
eign missions are to be vacated, and that the va
cancies thus created are to be so many prizes to
stimulate the exertions of partisans iu the doubtful
States, half a dozen of whom in each State may be
taught to anticipate success in the ratio ot their
services. If Mr. Van Buren is defeated, (as de
feated he will be) that will not prevent his filling
the vacancies. The consequence of such a move
ment is, that when General Harrison comes into
power, he will find new ministers at all the Courts
in Europe and elsewhere, having received the accus
tomed outfits. If within one year after the election,
he should recall one of these ministers thn gentle
man recalled would receive over $'0,000 for a year's

Whig gain of 400 and the gain of a veritdble

LET TIIE SHOUT GO UP FOR VIRGINIA.
All is safe. After one of the hatdest fought
battles ever had on the soil of the Old Dominion
the Whigs have triumphed, not so much as at first
was expected, but enough to carry their measures
and yet small enough to stimulate tiiem to re
newed exertions. When we reflect upon the ex
tent of the pationage, money anil power of the
UniteJ States Government which was thrown into
this Slats and prostituted to the aid of a time
serving und corrupt administration, freemen have
a right to shout. It is evident that there is yet a
redeeming spirit in the people that wi.l rise above
the assumptions of a purse-proud a id self-suffi
cient aristocracy of omce-holuers.

which remains to bo heard lrom Greenbrier

We have already given to our readers sufficient
information, in regard to the Virginia elections,

THE LOO CABIN HERO.
We have received the first number of this spir
ited little sheet. It goes it "all holler" for Old
Tip, and next to the Stoekholder, we think it the
Uo:.t paper of the kind we have seen.
We must postpone, until ourncxl, .1 more
full account of the proceedings on the 6lh
at St. I-otiif. It wns indeed a ningniliccnt
and imposing sllair exceeding, by far, tho
uost sanguine hopes that had been enter
tained by our friends. It told well too, if
we are to infer any thing from the rabid and
indelicate hysterics into which it seems to
have thrown the conductors of the Argus.
The Whig prints of the city are taking no
other revenge of him than to publish his
paragraphs without comment except by
the thousands of all parties who were theie
and know their shameless falsity. This is
revengo enough. Appropos: A portion of
the parly who used to raise 'Hmjkort
poi.f.s," and parade with "Hickor bushss,"
on every election ground, in favor of Gen
eral Jackson ore now inveighing against
"i.og-cabin" raising, and other demonstra
tions in favor of General Harrison! This
s in keeping with their consistency in
other respects nnd only shows that when
they abandoned their principles they would
fain forget their practice. Kightor wrong,
wise or foolish good or b.id politn or im
polite many old Jackson men learnt how
lo do such things from 1 1'24 to 1820, in
honor of the Hero of Orleans, and are lead
ing an active baud at their repetition in
1 840, in honor of the Hero of the Thames.
There is, moreover, a solidness and a sub
stance respecting the log-cabin "pageant"
winch never attach to the Hiickorv
pole" or the "Lushes.' General Harrison
is the author (40 years ago) of that change
in the old land system, whereby kvkrt man
could have a "log cabin" of ms own and
an orchard and a "cider" press to boot.
Even opart, therefore, from the Treasury
slur upon him in the first instance, there is
a natural fitness in erecting cabins in honor
of the man who proposed and carried
through Congress the bill which placed the
ownership of one within the reach of the
poor as well as the rich.

The following remarks of the Louisville
Journal, concerning the " Advertiser," are
equally applicable to almost every Van Bu
ren taper, and to the party, generally:
Three or four years ago, when all prices
were unnaturally inflated, the Louisville
Advertiser exclaimed, "How absurd it is
for the Whigs to talk about the disastrous
effects of the policy of the administration,
when the farmer gets seven cents a pound
for his pork and $7 50 a barrel for his flour!
Now, when prices are greatly depressed,
the same Advertiser exclaims "How ab
surd it is for the Whigs to talk about the
bad ellects of the administration policy,
when the poor man can buy pork for four
cents a pound and flour for S.TiO per bar
rel!" h it any particular gratification to tho
readers of the Advertiser to be so misera
AN OLD SOLDIER AND PATRIOT.
A venerable old gentleman called on us few
days sinco for the purpose of paying his subscrip
tion to the Times. After the liquidation of the
claim, he remarked, "I am now nearly eighty years
of age. At an early period of my life, I should
ered my musket in defence of my country, against
the invasions of the BrittUh and Indians. I con
tinued in the army many years, and served under
Clark, Crittenden, Scott, Shelby, Wilkerson, and
others, and although I never fought under Harrison,
still I often heard my General's speak of him, and
they always spoke in tho highest terms of praise
of his conduct and bravery." "But" continued
the old patriot, "now that the battles have been
won, peace restored and we arc blessed with a Re
publican furm of government, we hear those wlm
established these blessings those who sacrificed
every comforl for country and braved the tomahawk
of the savage and the cannon of the Brittish, vili
fied, traduced and slandered in every possible way.
And who are these ungrateful slanderers 1 They
are the babes whom Harrison and others protected
against the scalping knife of the red man those
who know nothing of the hardshipsof war those
who know not how to appreciate liberty ! Ungrate
ful men ! !" After a short pause the old gentleman
continued, "Allhough I am now feeble in body and
can scarcely get about, still I have the same heart
I had when I first left old Kentucky, and I feel the.
same love of country as then, and am 1 wrong,
when I say, that the state of our country demands
the enlistment of such hearts nowJ True, we are
not harrassed by the Indians, but are we nut threat
ened with t monarchy are we not already op
pressed with tyrannical rulers 1 We are, Mr. C.
we are. Heaven protect us against such an event."
Thus spake an old revolutionary soldier, a pa
triot and a Republican.
