never sustained a defeat."
James Madison, in a special message to Con
gross, Dec. 18, 1S11, said,
While it is deeply lamented that so many valu
able lives have been lost in the action which took
place on tho 7th ultimo, Congress will see with
satisfaction the dauntless spirit of fortitude victo

guished their commander on an occasion requiring
the utmost exertions of valour and discipline.
James Madison in his mes-sago to Congress.
Nov. 1S12, said,
An ample force from the States of Kentucky

the addition of a few regular under the command
of Brigadier Gen. Harrison, possesses the entire
confidence of his fellow soldiers, among whom are
citizens, 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. 1S13, the
cmpliment was extended, as follows :
The success on Lake Erie having opened a pas.

war thither, and, rapidly pursuing tho hostile

" I make fre3 to declare that I have imagined
there were two military men in the West, and Gen.

Message of Symon Snyder, Governor of Pa.
Dec. 10, 1813.
" Already is the brow of the young warrior,
Croghan, encircled with laurels, and the blessings
of thousands of woman and children rescued from
the scalping knife of tho ruthless savages of the
wilderness, and from tho still more savago Froc
tur, rest on Harrison and his gallant army,"
In the Legislature of Indiana, on the 12th Nov
IMl, the Speuker of tho House of Representatives,
Gon. Wiu. 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 cordially rcciprocato me
congratulations of your Excellency on the glorious
result of the late sanguinary conflict with the Shaw
nee Prophet, 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 the 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
elfe ct on tho nerves of those who circulate tlie
slnnder respecting the "white horse," und the
fall of the gallant Col. Daviess:
Legislature f Kentucky, Jan. 7, 1312.
Resolved, By tho Senate and House of Fuprc
sentatives of the Slate of Kentucky, that in the late
campaign against the Indians upon the Wvbaah,
Gov. William Henry Hnrrison has behaved like a
hero, a patriot, and a general ; and that for his cool,
deliberate, skilful and gallant conduct in the battle
or J ipecanoo, he well deserves the wannest thank
of his country and his nation.
Gen. Anthony Wayne, in his Letter to tho Sec
retary of War, giving an cflicial account of his
sanguinary Indian Battle, in 171)2, said :

Col. Richard M. Johnson te Gen. Harrison, July
4, 1813, says :
" it e did not icant to serve under cowards or tra
tori ; but under one Harrison who had proved him
self to be wise, prudent and brave." .
Commodore rcrry to Ucncrnl Harrison, Au
gust 18, 1817, says;
" l lio prompt change maue ny you in mo orum
of battle on discovering the position of the enemy,
has always appeared to me to have evinced a lugn
degree of military talent. I concur with the vener
ablo Shelby in his goneral approbation of your con
duct in that campaign."
Tho opinions of tho Hon. Lanodon Ciieves,
of the importance of the victory of the Thames
and the bravery of Gen. William Henry Har
"7'Ae victor) of Harrison, leas such as would hare
eturti to a tinman General in the best days of the
Republic, the honors of a triumph! He put an end
to the War tn the uiertnust Canada.
Sentiments of the Hero of Fort Stephenson,
Col. Croehan, now ol tho War Department:
"I desire no plaudits which are bestowed upon
mo at the expense of Gen. Harrison.
"I have felt the warmest attachment for him as
a man, and my confidence in him as an able com
mander remains unshaken. 1 feel every assurance
that he will at all times do ine ample justice; and
nothing could give me more pain than to see his en
cmies seine upon this occasion to dual out their un
friendly feelings and acrimonious dislike; and as
long as he continues, (as in my humble opinion he
has hitherto done,) to make the wisest arrangements
and the most judicious disposition, which tho forces
under his command will justify, I shall not hesitate
to unite with the army in bestowing upon him that
confidence which he so richly merits, and which has
on no occasion been withheld."
Lastly we como to tho ncnt compliment ol

South, who now brandishes his old "chapeless
sword with two broken points," and threatens
devastating war upon the concjvorcr ef tho Brit.

Under this title the undersigned proposo to pub
lish, in the Town of Faris, Monroe County, Mis
souri, a IV eekly Journal, to be devoted, principally
to Political, Agricultural, Commercial, and Scien
tific information, but to embody the usual variety
which is found in a Family Newspaper.
In Folitics, tho paper will be thoroughly Whig.
The Editor in no respect doubts tha election of
General IIahiuson to tho Presidency, and as litllo
doubts that the course of his administration will be
such as to deserve the support of the Republican
party, of which he is a member. If so, it shall
have his. He will be pleased, also, to act with the
samo enlightened party in reference to measures of
State policy, and will do so, to tho extent of his
capacity, and tho acquiescence of his judgment.
As the name he has chosen was intended to in
dicate, his paper will "herald" alike the wrongs
and the virtues of the world around it regardless
of whom it may effect, in praise or in censure. A
Newspaper, on any other principle, is a misnomer
and a mockery.
The untiring zeal with which the Democratic
party in this State, carried on the war in our late
elections together with tho villany, industry, and
tho celerity with which they carried into execution
their plans, will remain as an alarming and an en
during monument of Democratic enterprise! Like
the fabled Dragon, which is said never to close his
lidlesseyes, the stirring and pilfering spirit of De
mocracy, slumbers (if at all) with unclosed eyes I
The base, contemptible, and false-hearted flattery,
with which these political hypocrites attempt to in
sinuate themselves into favor; and the skill with
which those ponderers and parasites these syco
phants und demagogues of Democracy, manage to
get upon tho blind sido of human nature, aud to
take an advantage ot its weakness and passions,
must all beiaianaKeu uetore tlie gazeot an honest,
an unsuspecting, but heretofore deluded people. In
one word, me tune nas again approached, when we
must all enter upon a great political contest. Like
that through which we have just passed in our
State, it will be a contest of principle against ;;otcer
a contest ct tlie people against the ojicc-hoklers. We
are none of those who indulge in gloomy anticipa
tion, we uo noi ucspair ot tlio Jttepuulic. Our
trust is strong, that the gallant ship, in which all
our hopes are embarked, will yet outride the storm
saved alike from the breakers and billows ofdis,
union, and the greedy whirlpool tho all engulph
ing malos'.rooms of executive power that un
broken, if not unharmed, she may pursue her pros
perous voyage tur down the stream ot time; an
thut the banner of our country, which now waves
over us so proudly, will still float in triumph borne
on the winds of heaven, fanned by the breath of
fame, every stripe bright and unsullied, every star
fixed in its sphere, ages after each of us shall have
ceased to gaze on its majestic folds forever.
We shall commence and continue the good fight,
till error, sick with contradiction, and crazed with
a superabundance of inconsistency, shall be seen
flying to falsehood as a remedy, and expiring from
the venom of its own fangs. We will continuo the
warfare, till the night of superstition shall pass
away the purplo morn of reason shall dawn the
tints of truth appear and the gloomy mists fade in
the distance, and sink below the horizon to rise no
more! Till the hallowed name of Liberlu, more
fragrant than the Spring gales of Arabia, more
balmy than Gilcad's air, thrills tho bosom where
despair once revelled, and whispers, "irood tidin-js
for all mankind." In a word, we trust, Ave shall
not relax our cltorts, till trophies of victory, in
smiles and peace, deck the brows of those who once
were saddeued with doubt and uncertainty, and
sunk with political sorrows, to the depths of a
To all those who value the liberty we yet enioy
