THE OLD SOLDIERS.
" I was dining with Gen. Harrison,
-in the spring of 1839," said a gentle
n an to us. a few days ago, " and
while in the midst of our repast a
loud knock was heard at the door.
My host arose from the table excused
liimself, and went to the door to see
who was desirous of' admittance. Af
ter a parley of some moments with a
person who spoke in a rough tone of
voice the general ushered in the room
a very old man, whose worn out and
tattered garments bespoke great dis
tresss and poverty.
"Mr. ."said Gen. Harrison this
is one of my nld soldiers, and I .have
invited him in to dine with us. He
was with me at the sortie at fort Meigs
and at the Thames. I remember Iris
bravery well, These are men whom
we must honor. Take that seat

name,) " ' c ontinued our friend, " sat :

burg, Monroe County, Pa., and Miljurd,
Pike County, Pa., simultaneously.
,'The whole art of Government consists in the art

THE JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN
in principle, will be all its title purports, the 'firm
and unwavering advocate oPthe principles and
doctrines of the democratic part)-, delineated by
the illustrious Jefferson : the right of the peo
ple to think, to speak, -and to act, independent
ly, on all subjects, holding themselves respon
sible to no power for the free exercise of this
right, but their God, their Country, and her
Laws, which they themselves have created.
A free and untranimelcd Press, conducted in ;
spirit worthy of our institutions, is a public bles
sing, a safeguard to the Constitution under which
we live, and-it should be cherished and support-
ed by every true republican. Such, then, it is
designed to make the paper now estab
lished, and as such, the publisher calls up
the enlightened citizens of Monroe and Pik to
aid him in this laudable enterprise. The time
has arrived when the Press should take a bold
down and soon gave "us cause to know
that a good dinner and him had beon
strangers for many a long day. Tne
- old fellow's feelings became enliven
Sied by the good things he had parta-
Iken of and a glass or two of whiskey
and. water, and for nearly two hours
did the general and he fight their
battles over again. Towards eve-
mng-the General took me aside, and
. asked me join with him in the charity
he was about to bestow. I cheerful
ly consented. The General went to
his bed-room and in a few minutes re
turned with a new black coat.
"George" said the hero, this is the
only Goat I have got excent the thread
bare on my back. Take it and while
it protects you from the inclement j
winds of our cold spring, remember j
J and faarless stand against the evidently increas
ing moral and political degeneracy ol the day,
and endeavor, by a fair, candid, and honorable
course, to remove those barriers whioh scctibn
'al prejudices, party spirit, and party animosity
have reared to mar the social relations of men
without accomplishing any paramount good.
THE JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN
will not seek to lead or follow any faction, or to
advocate and support the schemes of any par
ticular set of men. It will speak independent
ly on all State and National questions, award
ing to each that support which its merits may
demand, never hesitating, however, to condemn
such measures, as in the opinion of the editor is
justly warranted, holding as a first principle :
" The greatest good to thcgrcatest number."
Believing that the great principles of democ
racy are disregarded by the present Chief .Ma
gistrate of the Nation, Martin Van Bure.v,
the JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN, will
decidedly, but honorably oppose his re-election j
to the high and responsible station which he

JL HE Ladies' Companion, established in May,
1634 a popular and highly esteemed magazine of
General Literature and the Fine Ans; cmbci.isii
with gorgeous and costly engravings on steel, and
ble and popular Music, arranged lor tne xianj
Forte, and Guitar.
Sinco the publication of the number for, Novem
ber, the demand for the Ladies' Companion has
been unprecedented and beyond the mog.t.saisguiua "
anticipations. At the commencement of the vol
ume an additional number of copiesrvi'efe printed,
which was considered at the time, adequate to sa
tisfy all the orders which'rriight be received, an-.l
leave a considerable number on hand fur subse
quent calls. The publisher is more than gratified
in stating that the whole of an edition cf six thou
sand, fie hunored copies, was completely exhaus
ted before the issuing u'f the third number of the
volume; and, consequently, he was compelled to
reprint a second edition of two thousand copies,
making the circulation of the Ladies' Compauio a
eight thousand five hundred, at the termination of
the tenth volume. In consequence of this great
and unparalleled increase of new subscnbeis, he
has determined to commence the new volume for
the ensuing year with thirteen thousand : ho.ii.
that he will thus be enabled to supply all the de
mands for the Ladies' Companion, as weh as these
disappointed in commencing with the tenth vol
ume. The proprietor feels- grateful u.r that en
couragement which has been so lavishly bestow e-t
upon nis magazine, and at the same time he begs
to assure the readers of the Ladios" Cnpamoi.,
that it is determined resolution to meet it with .t
corresponding liberality to merit its continuance.
The work appears in beautiful new Upe, printed
on the finest paper ; smoothly pressed, ana neatij
stitched in a handsome cover.
The Ladies' Companion contains a larger quan
tity of reading than any other magazine issued in
in this country, and its subscription price is oniy
three dollars a year while the great combinatn.iL
of talent secured for the coming year will render
it unequalled by any other periodical.
Splendid Steel Engravings, prepared by Mr. A-
Dick, ornament the work one of which accompa
nies each number. These plates are entirely nc-wT
and are engiaved at a heavy expense by one of the
best arstists in America, expressly for the maga-
zine. l he designs are selected wan a view oi in
teresting the general reader, and enhancing the
value of the work, for its superior pictoral em'el-
ishments. It is with pride the proprietor announ
ces that the Ladies' Companion is the only maga
zine published, in which new and elegant sieal
plates appear regularly. I hose accompanying'
other monthly periodicals, are generally first worn
out in annuals.- In addition to the engravings
mentioned, a correct plate of the Quarterly Fash
ions for Ladiest will appear in the June, Septem
ber, December, and March numbers, independent
of the usual embellishment. It is the determina
tion of the proprietor, that these fashion plates
4 shall appear in a style hitherto unknown. It lite-
4 rary character will undergo no change, as it will
remain under the charge of the same Editors as
heretofore. Articles from the pens of the most
distinguished writers, will appear in the foithcon
ing numbers, among which may be enumerated the
following: Mrs. Holland, jEmma C. Embury,
