INTEGRITY OF HARRISON.
The Galena Gazette furnishes tlie
following instance of the incorrupti
ble, rigid honesty, of this " noblest
Roman of them all." How it con
trasts with the mercenary, peculating
spirit of Mr. Van Burenand his chief
friends, who avail themselves of eve
ry advantage their stations afford, to
enrich themselves from the public
treasury ! But read as follows :
" Gen. Harrisbn was once offered
twA-thirds of the town site of St. Lou
is for the simple signature of his name.
Had he complied, he would now have
been the richest man west of the Al
leganies. Acting on the principle that
a public officer should be even above
suspicion of impropriety, he at once
rejected the offer. To those, of the
present day, wlio only associate the
possession of office with the means of
acquiring wealth, this will appear un
accountable, if not highly improper.
With them the hardest and most com
plicated matter to be understood, ap
pears to be plain, straight forward hon
esty. But the great body of the peo
ple will comprehend it, and will ap
preciate the conduct of the man who
valued his character more than -lie did
This simple incident affords a good
insight into the character of Gen. Har
rison. It brings to mind at once the
era of the American Revolution, with
which he is so peculiarly connected.
Then was uttered the noble sentiment
upon which Gen. HARRISON has
ever acted, when Gen. REID told the
men who attempted to seduce him
from the Whig cause, " I am a poor
man very poor hut, poor as I am,
tlie King of Great Britain is not rich
eneugh to buy me:
k An Incident worthy of Record
A few days since, in a town in Illi-
noisa number of citizens of both po
litical parties assembled to hear a dis
cussion of political subjects. Among
those present was an old man whose
head was white with the snows of
seventy winters. He walked with a
long staff, and Iris hearing failed liim.
He was placed on the speaker's stand.
Here he sat patiently hearing the dif
ferent speakers. At length, a young
lawyer came on the stand and shortly
commenced a most yiolent tirade of
personal abuse of General Harrison.
The old man sat patiently listening to
all until the speaker pronounced Har
rison a coward. The utterance of
that word appeared like magic on the
old man. His eyes dimmed with age,
flashed with renovated fire ; seizing
his stick, and springing to his feet
with all the buoyance or the age or
tweniy, ho seized the speaker by the
oolkr, and in a clear, sin-ill voice that
thrilled through the crowd, exclaimed,
"you're a liar. I (said the old man)
served under Harrison, and "ou shall
not tell -that lie on my old commander
to my face." The effect may be im
agined, but not described. The whole
crowd of both parties, became so in
dignant at the speaker, that he had to
be smuggled away to protect ms per
son. St. Louis Republican.

OF THE , .
A iew Weekly Paper, to be published at Strouds
burg, Monroe County, Pa.and Milford,
Pike County, Pa., simultaneously.
,'Tho whole art of Government consists in tlie art
"of boing honest. Jefferson.
A Noble Reply. Among the ma
ny evidences of popular feeling, in
relation ttp Gen. Harrison, we observe
the presentation of the splendid living
American'Eagle, which was captured
on .theibaUle ground of Fort Meigs,
andaej by a delegation at the
mammetli Columbus Convention.
The reffly of the old hero was ex
tre(hr happy, and referring to the
cantive bird, he remarked, that " if
ever tlie time shall arrive, when the
benefits of government establislied by
THE JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN
in principle, will be all its title purports, the firm
and unwavering advocate of the principles and
doctrines of the democratic party, delineated by
the illustrious Jefferson : the light 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 untranimeled Press, conducted in a
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
tho enlightened citizens of Monroo and Pik to
aid him in this laudable enterprise. The time
has arrived when the Press should take a bold
and faarless stand against the evidently increas
ing moral and political degeneracy of the day,
and endeavor, by a fair, candid, and honorable
course, to remove those barriers whioh section
al prejudices, party spirit, and part animosity
have reared to mar the social relations of men
without accomplishing anv 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, awards
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 the greatest number."
Believing that the great principles of democ
racy are disregarded by the present Chief Ma
gistrate of the .Nation, Martin Van Bdren,
the JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN, will
decidedly, but honorably oppose his re-election
to the high and responsible station which he
It will firmly oppose the " Independent Trea
sury" Scheme, and all other schemes having
for their object tbe concentration m the hands
of one man, and that man the President of the
Nation, all power over the public moneys, a
power, which, when combined with that vest
ed in him by the Constitution as Commander-in-Chief
of the American forces, Military and
Naval, together with an enormous official pa
tronage, would render him more powerful than
the Executive of the British Nation, and in
short make our Government, de facto an Elec
It will ever maintain that the welfare of our.
Country and the preservation of her Republican
Institutions should be the first and only senti
ments of our hearts in the choice of our public
servants; that honesty, fidelity, and capability,
are the only true tests of merit ; that all men
are created equal, and, therefore, should alike
enjoy the privileges conferred on them by tho
Constitution without being subject to proscrip
tion, or coerced by the influence of party.
The columns of the JEFFERSONIAN
REPUBLICAN will ever be open to the free
discussion of all political questions, believing
as we do, that there is no liberty where both
sides may not be heard, and where one portion
of freemen are denied the privilege of declar
ing their sentiments through the medium of the
Press, because they differ from the majority.
The JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN
will ever take a lively interest in the affairs of
Monroe and Pike, and of the Senatorial and
Congressional Districts with which they are
The Farmer, the Merchant, tho Mechanic,
and the Laborer, will each find a friend in the
columns of the JEFFERSONIAN REPUB
LICAN. Due care will be taken to furnish its
readers with the latest Foreign and Domestic
News, and such Miscellaneous reading as will
be both interesting and instructive. In chert it
is designed to make the paper worthy of an ex
tensive patronage, bMh from the strictly moral
tone which it will ever possess, and the efforts
of the editor to make it a good and useful

with gorgeous and costly engravings on steel, and
the Quarterly fashions; and also with h ushionu
ble and popular Music, arranged for the f iaiiu
Forte, and Guitar. -jt"'"
Since the publication of the number fer Novem
ber, the demand for the Ladies' Companionfias'
been unprecedented and beyond the most sanguine
anticipations. At the commencement of the vol
ume an additional number of copies uere printeu,
wmcn was considered at the time adequate. to sa
tisfy all the order which might .be .received, and
leave a considerable numbomhand for subse
quent calls. The publisher is more thangratiSed
iis stating that the whole of an edition ot six thou
sand, five hundred copies, was completely eih uis
ted before the issuing of the third number of the
volume; and, consequently, he was convened to
reprint a second ednion of two thousand copies,
making the circulation of the Ladic s' Companion
eight thousand five hundred, at the termination of
the tenth volume, in consequence of this great
and unparalleled increase of new subscribers, ho
has determined to commence the new volume fir
the ensuing year with thirteen thousand : hoping
that he will thus be enabled to supply all the dt -mands
for'the Ladies' Companion, as well asthoso
disappointed in commencing v.nh the tenth vol
ume. The proprietor feels grateful for that en
couragement which has been so lavishly bestowed ;
upon his magazine, and at the same time-he begs
to assure the readers of the Ladies' Companion,
that it is determined resolution to meet it with a.
corresponding liberality to merit its continuance.
The work appears in beautiful new type, printed
on the finest paper ; smoothly pressed, and neatly
stitched in a handsome cover.
The Ladies' Companion contains a larger quan
tity of reading than any other magazine issued m
in tins country, ana its suoscription price is oniy
three dollars a year, while the great combination
of talent secured for the coming year will renac r
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 nev r
and are engraved at a heavy expense ty one oi u j
best arstists in America, expressly for the mag -
zine. The designs are selected with a view ol in
teresting the general reader, and enhancing the
value of the work, for its superior pictoral embel
lishments. It is with pride the proprietor announ
ces that the Ladies' Companion is the only maga
zine published, in which new and elegant steel
plates appear regularly. Those accompanying
other monthly periodicals, are generally first wotil
out in annuals. In addition to the cngravii s
mentioned, a correct plate of the Quarterly Fash
ions for Ladies4 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-
i shall appear in a style hitherto unknown. Jt lite
rary character will undergo no change, as it will
remain under the charge ot the same JLditcrs aa
heretofore. Articles from the pens of tlie mod
distinguished writers, will appear in the forthcom
