"Small Tail" Movement. - Daring
the Harrison campaigh, an eloquent
orator, in the Western partof thq Statd
of Virginia, was holding forth to an im
mense crowd in favor of the hero .
Tippocanoe and Tyler too. Es
ly the speaker was expatiating a tz
General Harrison's cotirage, taot, and
suoobas, as a military commander.
While in the midst of his discourse,
a tall guant mau arose from the crowd,
and said in a voibb '*hich penetrated the
whole assembly :
"Mister-mistor, I want to ask you
Thp speaker paused, and beggeod4im
"We are told the man went on, "fol
low citizens, that Gonoral Harrison is it
mighty great general; but I say he is
one of the very meanest kind of genor
rals. We are told hero to night that
he defended himself bravely at Fort
Moigs ; but I tell you, on that occasion
lihe was guilty of the Small Tail More
mnd, and I challenge the orator hero
present) to deny it."
The orator declared his utter Igno
rtince of what tme manil miouant by the
''"Snall T'ail M ovemenit," and asked
himiu to explain himself.
"1 tell you," said the moan. "I've
got it here in black and white. Ilere
is Grilnshaws's History of time lTuitled
States"-- -holl up the bd~ok-"and I'll
read what it says. This is it: "At this
critical i4m nout General I tarrisdn exe
cuted IL novel movoment.' Does the
geIdnlomnan deny that 1'
"No, no go on."
'"Well, he executed a novel move
mont. Now, here's Johnson's Diction
ary"----taken the book out of his pocket;
and hohling it ulip-"and hero it says :
'NlVcl, a small tale.' And this was the
kind of movement General Ilarrison
was guilty of. Now, I'm no sgeor. and
don't knliw much about military tie
tacks, but this 1 do say : a mani who in
the face of anl enemy is guilty of Small
Tail Movements is not ilt to be IPresi
dent of the United Stateso, and ho ihaunt
have my vote."
I'he orator of the ewvning coul
make 1no head against mil argumment
like that, and gave it up in despair.
