Of tke career of Gen. Harrison I need not
speak the history of the West, is his history.
For forty years he has been identified with its i
terests. its perils and its hopes. Universally be
loved in the walks of peace, and distinguished by
. his ability in the councils of his country, he has

"During the late war, he was longer in active
. service than any other General officer , he was per
haps, ofiencr in action than any one ot them, and
never sustained a defeat."
James Madison, in a special message to Con
gress, Dec. 18, 1811, said,
While it is deeply lamented that so many valu
able lives have been lost iu the action which took
place on the' 7th ultimo, Congress will see with
satisfaction the dauntless spirit of fortitude victo
. riously displayed by overy description of troops cn
, gaped, of veil us the collected firmness ichich distin
guished their commander on an occasion requiring
the utmost exertions of valour and discipline.
James .Madison in his message to Congress,
Nor. 1812, said,
An ample force from the States of Kentucky
Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, is placed, with
the addition of a few regulars under the command
of Brigadier Gen. Harrison, possesses the entire
confidence of his fellow soldiers, among whom are
ntirens, some of them volunteers in the ranks, not
less distinguished by their political stations than by
their, personal merits.
In Mr. Madison's message of Dec. 1813, the
crrpliment wa extended, ns follows :
The success on Lake Erie having opened a pas
sage ou the territory ol tho enemy, the omcer coin
' minding the Northwestern arms, transferred the
war thither, and, rapidly pursuing the hostile
troops, fleeing with their savnge associate, forced
a general action, which quickly terminated in tlx
capture of the British, and dispersion of the savage
'this result is signally honorable to Major Gen

The following tribute of praise was paid to Gen
nil Harrison, in 1811, by eleven of the officers
who (ought under his banner at the battue ot lip'
pecan oe :
"Should our country again require our services to
oppose a civilized or a savage roe, we should marcii
under Gen. Harrison with the most perfect con
fidence of victory aud fame."

" I make free to declare that I have imagined
there were two military men in the West, and Gen.
Harrison is the first of the two."
Message of Synion Snyder, Governor of Pa.
Dec. 10, 1813.
" Already is the brow of the young warrior,
Croatian, encircled with laurels, and the blessings
of thousands of woman and children rescued from
the scalping knife of the ruthless savages of the
wilderness, and from the still more savage Trac
tor, rest on Harrison and his gallant army,"
In the Legislature of Indiana, on the 12th Nov
111 , 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 llier own name, and in behalf of
their constituents, most coroially reciprocate the
congratulations of your Excellency on the glorious
result of the late sanguinary conflict with the Shaw
nee I'rophet, and the tribes of Indians confederated
with him ; when we see displayed in behalf of our
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, fur a
moment, withhold our meed of applause."
The following resolve of both houses of the
Legislature of Kentucky, will have a similar
effect on the nerves of those who circulate the
slander respecting the " white horse," and the
fall of the gallant Col. Daviess:
legislature of Kentucky, Jan. 7, 1912.
Resolved, By the Senate and House of Repre
sentatives of the Stute of Kentucky, that in the late
campaign agaiHst the Indians upon the Wabash,
Gov. William Henry Harrison has behaved like a
hero, a patriot, aud a general ; and that for his cool,
ilc'iberate, skilful aud gallant conduct in the battle
of Tipecanoc, he well deserves the warmest thanks
of his country and his nation.
Gen. Anthony Wayne, in his Letter to the Sec
retary of War, giving hn official account of his
sanguinary Indian Buttle, in 17U2, said :
"My faithful and gallant Lieutenant Hurrison,
rendered the most essential service, by communica

houses of Congress, with but one dissenting voice,

assembled, That the thanks of Congress be, and
they are hereby, presnted to Major General Wil

and men under their command, for their gallantry
and good conduct in defeating the combined British
and Indian forces under Major General Proctor, on
the Thames, in Upper Canada, on the fifth day ol
October, one thousand eight hundred and thirteen,
capturing the British army, with their baggage,
camp eqipage, and artillery; and that the rresidenl

"1 desire no pluudits which arc bestowed upon
me at the expense of Gen. Harrison.
"I havo felt the wannest attachment fur him as
man, and my confidence in him as an able com
mander remains unshaken. I feel every assurance
that he will at all times do me ample justice; and
nothing could give me more pain than to see his en
emies seize upon this occasion to deal out their tin'
friendly feelings and acrimonious dislike; aud as
long as he continues, (as in my humble opinion he
has hitherto done,) to make the wiest n rrangeincnts
and the most judicious disposition, which the forces
under his command will justify, I shall not hesitate
to unite with the army in bestowing upon him thai
confidence trhich he so richly merits, and which has
on no occasion been withheld.

er, the lending orgun of the Coalition in the
South, who now brandishes his old "chapeless
sword with two broken points," and threatens
devastating war upon the conqvorer ef the Brit-
tish and Indian Uoolwonoi the West! the
Richmond Enquirer said:
"General Harrison's letter tolls as every thing
tliRt we wish to know about the officers, except him
self. He does justice to every one but Harrison
and the world must therefore do justice to the nan
who was too modest to be.jt.st to himself."
