terprer to the rPotatyatamiog was about to be
glis, Tecumseh interrupted' him in a rude and
insulting manner using the most vehement
language and the most violent gesticulation,
arid loudly declaring that all the Governor, had
said was false, and that he and the United
Slates had cheated and imposed upon the Indians.-
As he uttered this his warriors sprang
to their feet, aud began to brandish their toma
hawks and war-clubs their eyes all fiercely turn
ed upon the Governor. Harrison rose imme
diately and drew his sword. The friendl
chief Winnemack cocked a pistol with which
he. was arniod, and somo of the ofiiceis in at
tendance drew their weapons and stood on the
defensive. During this critical moment not a
word was spoken, until the guard came run
ning up and were about io fire on the Indians,
when-the Governor with singular coolness and
presence of mind, restrained them. He then
turned to Teeumsch and calmly but authoritive
ly told him that " he was a bad man that he
would hold no further talk with him and that
ho must now return to his camp, and take his
departure from the settlements without delay."
The council was immediately broken up,

The next morning, Tecumseh finding that

age, the Governor afterwards paid him a visit to
his own camp, with no other attendant than the

tstwsrtees and much attention ; his uniform

the respect of the rude warrior ; but he still

" Repeal of Bank Charters. We are
gratified to see that the House of Representa
tives of Pennsylvania have authorized the in
traduction of a bill to repeal the Charter of the
United Stales Bank. If they would pass the
bill, and then impeach the thieving democratic trai
tor Governor Porter, for malfeasance in office,
thev would cover themselves with gloru. We
believe Gov. Porter, next to Gov. Shannon, of
Ohio, otic of the most corrupt men of the present
corruptjigc. His whole conductjowards the
IT. S. Bank and the Girard Bank, indicate a
degree of prostitution unparalleled in the histo-
rv of official depravity.
" Had he beon the Democratic Governor of
Mississippi, aud have sent such a balance and
strike paper'to our legislature, lie would have
been burned in effigy, by our honest loco focos.
lie is a contemptible trimmer; and as dishonest as
Gov. Shannon, or our thieving locofocos. The
parly will, never prosper until all such traitors
arc cut oil' by the knees.
"We see it stated in the Natchez Courner,
that the thieving democrats talk of bringing us
before the legislature. We wish they would,
and-give us thcprivilogc of sending for persons
aud papers. We think the trial would show
that if they had supported banks and abandon

commodations. Wo would bring up the books
of every bank in tho State, to prove their cor
ruption. They dare not bring us up. We wish
The ' Old Dominion,'' of Ya., has also added
its little mite to the thunder directed against
Gov. Porter. Witness the following :
" Mortification and sorrow is stamped upon
the countenance of all our political friends at
the monstrous treachery of Governor Porter of
Pennsylvania, in relation to the piralical ban
ditti, the chartered swindlers of that State,
and their lying paper rag promises to pay.
His cup of political depravity has overflowed ;
his infamy is perfect and entire, wanting no
thing, at the moment of the greatest possible
importance to the welfare and permanent pros
perity of the democratic party, he has played
the Judas Iscariot; and sold his principles for
a handful of bank rags. Had the crisis requi
red nerve, moral courage, the exercise of un
common firmness, there might be a slight color
ing of palliation to justify the monstrous enor
mity : but nothing of this was required ; his
matcldess treason to the democracy, therefore
can only be accounted for on the score of his
native corruption. He perhaps did not sell his
democratic principles, as I remarked above ha
ving none to barter away ; he simply unmask
ed himself to the full gaze of an astonished
world. I know not how the fact may be, but I
will venture Jo wager my head against a brass
baubee, that Governor Porter has been a prac
tising lawyer, and is one of those pitiful petti
fo2iers who arc not unwilling to take a bribe

Politics in Florida. We arc glad to see encou
raging symptoms of a popular awakening in Flor-

becoming tired of the weakness, inefficiency and
extravagance of the present administration, and
desire a change. General Harrison is popular in
the territory ; and his friends are moving in his
behalf. The Star at Tallahassee, hitherto a neu

favor ol sound democratic principles, and supports
General Harrison for the Presidency. Casam E.

and from his known industry and ability, we shall

reply to Mr. Aibort Smith of Maine.
Mr. Morgan rose amidst loud cries of ques
tion and- said ; Mr. Chairman, this is the first
tipe that I ha estrespassed upon the indulgence
of this House, in the scramble which has been
curried on to obtain the floor ever since the com
mencement of the session, I have hitherto been
content to give expression to my opinions only
by a silent vote, believing that such a course
best advanced tho business of the House and
tho interests of my constituents.
Nothing was further from my intention than
to address, you at this time, and 1 cannot but
feel surprised that gentlemen who have consu
med day after day, and occupied so much of the
valuable time of tills House, should now for the
firsr,time, cry out "question, question,55 and
evince so much anxiety to bring this debate to
an immediate termination.
Mr. A. Smith. Does the gentleman allude
to me 1
Mr. Morgan. I will allude to that gentleman
Mr. Smith. I have not sung-out question to
Mr. Morgan. I will detain the committee,
Mr. Chairman, but a few minutes.
It was not my intention to have risen nor
should 1 have "done so, but for the remarks
which fell from the honorable gentleman from
'Maine, (Mr. Smith.) He has singled mo out,
or placed me among the number oi those whom,
in elegant and courtly phrase, he designates as
lhe "pie-bald, ring streaked and speckled par
ty." Such, is the chaste language which the
gentleman has applied to that parly to which I
have the honor to belong ; but I can assure the
honorable member that I cannot feci disgraced
or degraded by any remarks or epithets which
he may think proper to apply to me in such a
He has denonnced the Whigs as the Federal
party composed of the old and ultra federalists
of the cockade stamp. This is a novel and fe
licitous argumont in favor of lhe Treasury note
bill, yet most unfortunate in another respect,
for it has recalled a train of reminiscences which
must be any thing but agreeable to many of the
honorable members, his political asociates on
When I heard the remarks of the gentleman
I could not refrain from looking at my honora
ble and distinguished colleague from Kinder
hook, (Mr Vanderpoel,) who is recognized as
one of the leaders of the Administration part;
and I do indeed think that the gentleman from
Maine was rather personal in his remarks, con
sidering lhat my colleague, who had the honor
of being a member of the Federal party, sat so
near to him.
Inhought too, sir, of another gentleman, be
longing to the same party with the member from
Maine, who very modestly, retired from his seat
when he heard the Federalists arraigned : 1
mean my honorable colleague from Otsego, (Mr.
Prentiss, who, during the last war edited a fed
eral paper in Otsego, and in common with his
political associates, rejoiced fit every defeat of
the American arms, and believed it "unbecom
ing a moral and religious people to rejoice over
victories." If I had a file of his papers here, I
could furnish proof, page upon page, in sup
port of his federal attachment.
I was reminded also ot my colleague on mv
right, (Mr. Fine.) who was formerly, as he is
now, associated with the gentleman from Otse
go; nor could I overlook the gentleman from
North Carolina, (Mr. McKay,) or the gentle
man from Maryland, (Mr. Carroll.)
1 was forcibly reminded of other distinguish
ed gentlemen who are pillars, props and sup
porters of the self-styled Democratic party,
some of whom have now the honor of a seat in
the other end of the Capitol. 1 thought of him
who had too much manliness to disclaim his
political attachment, and boasted that he sailed
under the federal flag so long as it waved in N.
Jersey , (Senator Wall.) I thought of an hon
orable Senator from Now Hampshire (Mr. Hub
bard,) and of another, (Mr. Williams,) who
comes from the State so ably represented in
part by the honorable member from Portland.
T ronld not f:til to rnmnmber another distin-
2mshed Senator, a brilliant slar in the galaxy
j 0f Federalism, (.Mr. Buchanan) who gives the
, hest evidence Of his political principles in an
J attempt to reduce the wages of labor, and the
! value of property to the standard of a gold
' humbug; and who, in early life evinced the
( warmth of his political attachments by declaring
i lhat he thanked God that he had not a drop of
democratic blood in his veins, and if lie thought
he had, he would tap them and lot U out.
Mr. Ramsey. I say that is not correct.
Mr. Morgan. I say the gentleman knows
nothing about it. He will not deny that tho
Senator was a zealous Federalist; and as to
r the particular expression, it was made when
1 that gentleman and mvsclf were in our cradles.
f 1 thought, too, Mr. Chairman, of another np-
tonous Jucobin of the party, whom fraud at
i tempted to force upon this House. I allude to
jhim who attempted lo U'ke a sea. on this lioor
in defiance of ah undoubted majority of seven
Hundred and iiityot the electors ol ins district
against him; and who, w.he n he arose lo ad
I dres this body, was politely requested to make,
ins speech m the Rotunda. L mean the distin
guisbed Jack Cade from Philadelphia, (Mr; In
gersoll,) who was not only a Federalist, but
who said that, had he lived in the days of the
Revolution, he would have been a Tory, and ho
is a Tory still.
i might allude to anotbor gentleman, conspic
uous for the manner in which ho exercised the
anp .whom.tlen oml' . amtm' rewarded- tty olo-
worejt; not sfunnlflj&antmo curtain ffoutlemen
-Trtoumcmbers whOsiiow hold sfcais on.-this floorf
frorii Ni'w Jersey, and who have been forced
upon us. I believe, in an illegal, unjust, and;
I could go with my . friend from Kinderhook
to the Empire Stale, mid point to him two gen
tlemen who recently represented my Senatorial
district in the State Legislature worthy and
honorablc'meu, but of the Essex school. I
could refer him lo another gentleman, recently
a member of-tliat Senate now, by permission
of the People in a'-state of political retiracy,
and who is, 1 thinly connected with my col
league from Kinderhook, ho, who in a fourth of
July oration, predicted that the sun of Federal
ism would yet rise to illumine tho blushes of
J1F- Vandarpod. Who was lhat ?
Jr. Morgan. If the Senator does not know
I will lell him. 1 mean the gentleman from
Greene county, Mr. Powers. Do you deny it I
Mr. randerpocl. No.
Mr. Morgan continued. All who have al
luded to were members- of the Federal parly,
and active supporters and advocates of Federal
measures. They are now democrats, dyed in
tho wool, and co-laborers with the member from
Maine in the Executive workshop.
I might, Mr. Chairman, swell the catalogue
until it embraced a large portion of the party to
which my honorable friend from Maine belongs;
but, sir, 1 have neither time nor physical strength
to proceed ; nor would this House, exhausted
as its members have been by protracted ses
sions, haj;c patience to listen to- further enu
moraliqrt. I will only add, that when the charge is made
against the party of which I have the honor to
be an humble member, that it is a Federal par
ty, and opposed to republican principles, come
from what source it may, it is a base slander
and falsehood. It is not the Federal party, nor
does it maintain L'ederal principles.
What is Federalism? Its most important
features are the increase of Federal patronage,
the enlargement of Executive power, the con
centration of every thing in the hands of the
President of the United States a strong, con
solidated Federal Government.
Where do you find most of these who acted
with the Federal part)" ? They are now in the
ranks of Loco Focoism, and foremost in the
fight. Who are in favor of these principles?
Who but the gentleman from Maine, and the
party with whom he acts, and which now pro
poses by the bill, which ought lo be, but unfor
tunately has not been, under discussion, to in
crease the power of the Executive? Who pro
poses the Sub-Treasury bill which the majori
ty in this House seem so reluctant to bring up
for debate ? Who is in favor of that measure
of abomination which is to increase and strength
en the influence of the President by a fearful
augmentation of his power and patronage?
The gentleman from Maine and his political
associates. Who has multipled tho number of
officers ? Who has increased the expenditures
of your government from thirteen to forty mil
lion of dollars ? Who has squandered your
surplus revenue? Who now calls upon this
House for five million of irredeemable Treasury
shinplasters to save your Government from
Bankruptcy)? Tho gentleman from Maine and
his economical democratic friends.

The above extract speaks volumes. When
was Mr. Kendall ever known to leave an Ad
ministration and retire to private life while there
is aitv prospect of its being sustained by the
people ? Why should he think that he would be
suspected of having left lhe Administration for
any of the reasons he wished to guard the whole
world' against believing. If none of those rea
sons existed in his own mind, what caused him
to think that others might entertain them ? Mr.
Kendall, however, does not exclude the other
that might also occur to others. He docs not
proclaim to the " whole world"' that he does not
abandon the fortunes of a sinking ship, because
he knows it is going down. Mr.K. is sagacious

drawn from those who arc willing to sacrifice a
