THE HOMAGE OF JUSTICE.
We have compiled, from various sources, the
following disinterested testimonials, which were
commanded from their soveral authors by the lof
ty patriotism, valor tulenrs and success of Gen.
Harrison, long before hit. was named for the Pre
sidency, and in limes which ought to givo them
weight sufficient to bear down all the petty cnluni
nies and quibbling objections which party mulig
nity may now presume to forgeriguinst the war
worn and time honored patriot and soldier.
The authorities we present against the puny
attacks at Loco-roco rcderolisin, and which we
shall stereotype as an impregnable barricade a
gainst all opposition, are no less than the Con
gressof the United States, the Legislatures
Of I dia A, and of Kentucky, James Mad!

We begin with the testimony of Col. Richard
M. Johnson, now Vice President of tlie United
Col. Johnson said, (in Congress)
"Who is Gen. Harrison J The sun of ono of the
signers of the Declaration of Independence, who
spent the greater part of his large fortune in redeem
ing the pledge he 'then gave, of his 'fortune, life and
sacred honor,' to secure the liberties of his coun
try. 'Of t.e 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 in
terests, its perils and its hopes. Universally be
loved in the walks of pence, and distinguished by
his ability in the councils of his country, he has
been yet more illustriously distinguished in the

service than any other General officer , he was per
haps, oftener in action than any one of them, and
never sustained a deteut.
James Madison, in a special message to Con
gress, Dec. 18, 1811, said,
While it is deeply lamented that so mnny valu
able lives have been lost in the action which took
plnce on the 7th ultimo, Congress will see with
satisfaction the dauntless spirit of fortitude victo
riously displayed by every description of troops en
gaged, as well as the collected firmness which distin
guished their emnmamlrr on an occasion r quiring
line, utmost exertions of valour and discipline.
James Madison in his ntosagc to Congress.
Nov. 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
citir.ens, some of them volunteers in the ranks, not
I ess distinguished by their political stations titan by
their, personal merits.
In Mr. Madison's message of Dec. 1S13, the
crrpliment was extended, as follows:
The success on Lake Erie having opened a pas
sage on the territory of the enemy, the otlicer com
inamliiH' the Northwestern arms, transferred the
war thither, and, rapidly pursuiiig the hostile
troops, fleeing with their savago associate, forced
a cencral action, which quickly terminated in the
capture of the British, uud dispersion of the savage

Extract of a letter from Col. Davies, who was
killed at the battle of Tippecanoe, Aug. 24, 1811:
" I moke 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 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 the ruthless savages of the
wilderness, and from the still more savage Proc
tor, rest on Harrison and his gallunt army,"
In tho Legislature of Indiuna, on the 12th Nov
1811, 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 curuially 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 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, for 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 State of Kentucky, that in the late
campaign agumst the Indians upon the Wabash,
Gov. William Henry Harrison has behaved like a
hero, a patriot, and a general ; and that for his cool,
deliberate, skilful aud gallunt conduct in the battle
of Tipccanoe, he well deserves the wannest thanks
of' his country and his nation.
Gen. Anthony Wayne, in his Letter to the Sec
retary of War, giving an official account of his
sanguinary Indian Untile, in 17U2, said :
"My faithful and gallunt Lieutenant Harrison,
rendered the most essential service, by counnunieu-
ting my orders in every direction, and by his con
duct and bravery, exciting the troops to press for
The following resolution, which pusted Loth
houses of Congress, with but one dissenting voic,
is calculated to make the ''petticoat hew," Jiel
if such slanderers can fed any thing hut the lash.
"Resolved by the Senate uud House ot' Represen
tative of the United States of America in Conrcii-
assembled, That the thanks of Congress be, uiul
ttiey aro hereby, predated to Major General Wil
liam Henry Harrison, and Isaac Shelby, late Gout
nor of Kentucky, and, through tliem to the oliieer
.and men under their command, fur their gulluii'ry
and good conduct in defeating the combined British
and Indian forces under Major General 1'roclnr, on
ho Thames, in Upper Canada, on the lifth iluy of
October, one thousand eight hundred and thirteen,
capturing the British army, with their baggage,
camp eqipage, und artillery: aud that the President
of the United States be requested to cause two
gold medals to be struck, cuiblematicul of this tri
umph; and presented to General Hurrison and Isaac
Shtdby, late Governor of Kentucky.
Speaker of the House of Representatives.
President of the Senate, pro tempore.
April 4, 1818. Approved,
Go, Shelby lo Mr. Mudison, May 19, 1811, auys:
we feel ne hesitation to declare to yon that I believe
Gen. Harrison to he one of th' first military charac
ter! lever kiieie." J
Col. Richard M. Johnson to Gen. Harrison, July
1, 1813, says :
" IV did not tcant lo serve under awards or trai
tors ; but under vne Harrison u ho had proved him
self lo be vise, prudent and brave."
Commodore Perry to General Harrison, Au
gust 18, 1817, says:
"The prompt change made by yon in the order
of battle on discovering the position of the enemy,
has always appeared to me to have evinced a high
degree of military talent. I concur with the vener
able Shelby in his general approbation of your con
duct in that catnpiign."
The opinions of the lion. Lanodon Cm eves,
of the importance of the victory of tho Thames
and the bravery of Gen. William Henry Hah.
"The victory of Harrison, was such as would hare
e-ured to a Roman (Icneral in tlie best days of the
Republic, the honors of a triumph! He put an end
to the War m the uppermost Canada."
Sentiments of tho Hero of Fort Stephenson,
Col. Croghan, now of the War Department:
"I desire no plaudits which are bestowed upon
me 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. I feel every assurance
that he will at all times do me ample justice; and
nothing could give mo more pain than to see his en
emies seize upon this occasion to deal out their un
friendly feelings and acrimonious dislike; and as
oner Us he continues, (as in my humble opinion he
has hitherto done,) to make the wisest arrangements
aud the most judicious disposition, which the forces
under his command will justily, 1 shall not hesitate
to unite with the army in bes'owinir upon him thai
confidence which he so richly merits, and which has
on no occasion been withheld.
Lastly we come to the neat compliment of
Thomas Richie, Editor of the Richmond Enquir
er, the leading organ of the Coalition in the
South, who now brandishes his old "chapeloss
sword with two broken points," and threatens
devastating war upon ti e conqvorrr ef the Brit
ttsh and Indian Coalition of the West! The
Richmond Enquirer said :
"General Harrison's Iclttr til's cs every thing
that we wish to know about U13 cfieirS; eveept him
self. He does justice to every ono but ITutiVoh
and the world must therefore dc justice- to the man
who was too modest to be j i.&t to himself."

Under this title tho undersigned proposes to pub
lish, in the Town of Toris, Monroo County, Mis
souri, a Weekly Journal, to be devoted, principally
to Political, Agricultural, Commercial, and Hcien
life information, but to embody the usual variety
which is found in a Family JNewrpafek.
In Politics, the paper will bo thoroughly' Whig.
The Editor in no respect doubts thoelection of
Genbrai, Harrison to the Presidency, and as little
doubts that the course of his administration will be
such as to deserve the support of the Republican
party, of which ha is a member. If so, it shall
have his. Ho will be plcused, also, to act with the
same enlightened parly in reference to measures of
State policy, und will do so, to ihe 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 praiso or in censure. A
Newspaper, on any other principle, is a misnomer
and a mockery.
The -.mtiring eal with which tho Democratic
party in this State, carried on the war in our lute
elections together with the villanv, industry, and
the celerity with which thev carried into oxr'eniinn
their plans, will remain as an alarming and an en
during monument of Democratic enterprise! Like
uib luoicu .uragon, which is said never to close his
lidlesseyes, the stirring spd pilfering spirit of De
mocracy, slumbers (if at all; with unclosed eyes!
iiiouasu, tuiiieinjHiuie, ana laise-hearted flattery,
with which these political hypocrites attempt to in
sinuate themselves into favor; and the skill ith
which these ponderers and parasites these syco
pliauts and doio.fjauuPH 0f Democracy. i,innn t,,
gut upon the blind side of human nuture, and to
lake un advantage of its weakness aud passions,
must all bo luid nuked bufure the gaze of an honest,
an unsuspecting, but heretofore deluded people. In
ono word, the time has again approached, when we
must all enter upon a great political contest. Like
that through which we have iust passed in our
State, it will be a contest of principle against power
a contest of the people against ihe ojficc-holders. We
are none ot those who indulge in gloomy anticipa
tion. We do not despair ot tho Republic. Our
trust is strong, that the gallant ship, in which all
our hopes are embarked, will yet outride the storm
saved alike from iho breakers and billows of dis,
union, and the greedy whirlpool the all engulpb
ing malestrooms of executive power that un
broken, if not unharmed, she may pursue her pros
perous voyage fur down the stream of time; an
that the banner of our country, which now waves
over us so proudly, will still iloatiu triumph borne
011 the winds of heaven, fanned by the breath of
lame, every stripe bright and unsullied, every star
nxed 111 its sphere, ages utter each ot us shall have
ceased to gaze on its majestic folds forever.
We shall commence mid continue the good fight,
till error, sick with contradiction, and crozed with
a superabundance of inconsistency, shall be seen
Hying to falsehood as a remedy, and expiring from
tho venom of its own fangs. We will continue the
warfare, till the night of superstition shall pass
away the purplo morn of reason shall dawn the
tints ot truth appear and the gloomy mists fade in
the distance, cud sink below the horizon to rise no
more! Till the hallowed name of Liberty, more
fragrant than the Spring gales of Arabia, more
balmy than Gilead's air, thrills the bosom where
despair once revelled, and whispers, "good tidings
for all mankind." In a word, we trust, we shall
nut relax our efforts, till trophies of victory, in
smiles and peace, deck the brows of those who once
were saddened with doubt and uncertainty, and
sunk with political sorrows, to the depths of a
To all those who value the liberty wo yet enjoy
the privileges bequeathed to us by our heroic
sires, let them immediately step forward and lend
their aid to tlie ".herald."
OCf-If encouraged according to the expectation of
his friends, the Editor will shortly feel justified in
ordering his materials and commencing his enter
prise. He desires to do so us speedily as possible,
und, to this end, he respectfully requests gentlemen
into whose hands his prospectus may full, to exert
themselves to fill them with names, as prumptly as
may be, and return him a list to Paris.
Tho sheet will be a large imperial one
handsomely printed, and furnished at three dollars
in advunce, or four dollars at the end of tho year.
