EDITED BY DUI F GREEN. ~ SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 1810. FOR PRESIDENT. WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON. FOR VICE-PRESIDENT. JOHN TYLER. The kindness in which our new paper has been re ceived, and the favorable notices of it by our politi cal friends, place us under many obligations to them. It is also a source of great pleasure that, so far, we have not seen a single unkind remark from any press, even in those to whom we are opposed. This is an act of liberality, and forbearance that, after our experi ence, and the part we have taken in the political dis cussions of the last sixteen years, deserves and re ceives our grateful acknowledgments. Those who know us personally, admit that we have, at least, the merit of sincerity, and these are times when much should be foregiven for the sake of an opinion.— Among those who have spoken favorably of us, is the Editor of the Somerset Herald; the tenor of whose article bespeaks a friendly purpose: but he does not fully comprehend the relation which we bear to the Whig party, and has given to the refusal of our late political friends to support the Editor as printer to Congress, a consequence which it does nut merit, and especially as an inference may he drawn from the article that we resolved to support General Harrison because, we had been thurst aside by them. The facts are, that as far back as the controversy between Gen. Jackson and South Carolina, the Edi tor of the Pilot assumed, for the states right party with whom he acted, the cognomen of WHIG, and and denounced the adherents of the administration as Tories-, and for this, immediately after the Proclama tion, one of the South Carolina Delegation, (who af terwards committed suicide,) in a fit of derangement, assaulted, and broke his arm. This was before the body of the present opposition, many of whom at that time sustained General Jackson,adopted Whig as their party names. It will thus be seen that so far from I standing out and refusing to become a Whig, we stand in the front rank. And again; the Editor says "that thus disgusted and illy used, on the nomination of Gen. Harrison," we announced our intention to support him. This is true, but it leaves an inference that we resolved to support liim because we were thus illy treated, where as the truth is, our preference for General Harrison is of long standing, and was avowed before his nom ination. The Globe in a scurrilous article, admits that in his address to his fellow soldiers, Gen. Harrison told them that if they would call to see liim, thev"would not find the string of the door latch pulled in." What a commentary on the hireling abuse of him is the life, the writings and speeches of the peo ple's candidate—who that has read the published speeches, or the writt en letters of Gen. Herrison has not been struck with the classic elegance, and for a ble descriptions; the original beauty of his composi tion. How forcibly this simple alfusion to his own humble home, carrying the mind of the war worn soldier back to his own fire-side, where the devoted wife; the affectionate mother or fond sister awaited his return. "Call when you will, fellow soldiers, the string of the door latch will never be pulled in." Could any words more feelingly or more fully express fellowship for his companions in arms, or generous hospitality? It is the eloquence of the heart, and the more eloquent, because the sentiment is illustrated by a life of benevolence. THE NEW YORK ELECTION. The Globe commences an article on the char ter el ection, in the City of New York, thus: "We never welcomed any event with more heart felt satisfaction." This is truly being thankful for small favors. Committee of Invitation will meet at North Bend THIS EVENING, (Saturday,) at half past 7 o'clock. We lay before our readers an extract from the re marks of the Hon. Wm. Cost Johnson, in the U. S. House of Representatives. We regret that our space will not enable us to quote more at large from this and other speeches. The following account of the preparations for the celebration of the battle of Fort Meigs, at Roches ter, N. Y. is from the Rochester Democrat of the 13th inst. ANNIVERSARY OF THE BATTLE OF FORT MEIGS. The Fanners of the county of Monroe in favor of commemorating the achievements of the patriotic General HARRISON, are requested to assemble in the city of Rochester on the sth of May next, at pre cisely 10 o'clock in the forenoon, with logs suitable for the erection of one of those primitive buildings, characteristic of the early settlement of the coun try, which the gallant Harrison so nobly and generously defended. Those who bring logs, arc re quested to have them 40 feet in length, and about one foot in diameter. The building will be raised the same day, and dedicated to the cause of Harri son and Reform. ALEX. KELSEY, J. W. GILBERT, M. F. REYNOLDS, JAMES MILLER, AMOS SAWYER, WM. R. MONTGOMERY, E. P. SMITH, Committe. MISSISSIPPI. —A law enacted by the Legislature of Mississippi at its last session, called the "Valuation and Debt Law," provides that when property has been levied on, in satisfaction of an execution, the debtor may claim an appraisement; whereupon three disinterested persons shall be chosen, one by the plaintiff, one by the debtor, and the third by the she riff, who shall appraise the property and make a cer tificate of their appraisement. The property is then to be offered for sale at auction, and if two thirds the appraised value is not offered, the sale is to be stopped, and the property to remain in the hands of the debtor, for one year, and then be offered again for sale to the highest bidder. THE TIPPECANOE TEXT BOOK.— We ear nestly invite the attention of our readers to the Pros pectus of "THE TIPPECANOE TEXT BOOK, AND LOG CABIN CABINET," published in another column. In the high and honorable character of the Compiler, and his admitted ability as a collector of facts and documents, the public have a guarantee that liis du ty will be faithfully and honestly performed, and we do not hesitate to say, that the pamphlet will be among the most valuable publications which have been issued from the press—and will, if properly dis tributed, contribute to secure the election of General Harrison, by placing an array of facts and argu ments in the hands of the people which will enable them to judge for themselves of his qualifications.— Every chapter will be eloquent in his praise, and with proper exertions, in a few weeks, a copy of this most valuable document may be placed in every LOG CABIN in the Union. RESOLUTION OF THE STATE CENTRIL COMMITTEE. At a meeting of the State Central Committee, held at North Bend, April 17, 1840, it was unanimously RESOLVED, That the pamphlet to be published by DUFF GREEN, and compiled by Win. Ogden Niles, late Editor of '-NILE'S REGISTER," from Hie materials contained in that work, and in other authentic re cords, to be entitled "THE TIPPECANOE TEXT BOOK, AND LOG CABIN CABINET," be earnestly recommend ed to the State Committees and Tippecanoe Associ ations of the Union, as a most valuable auxiliary in aiding the election of the People's candidate to the Presidency, by exliibitin g by OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS his great services in behalf of his country, in the cabinet and in the field, and his peculiar fitness for that high office:—and that they be earnestly invited to extend its circulation in everv quarter of the Union. N. F. 4VILLIAMS, Chairman. (Test) GEO. W. KREBS, Sec'y. ANOTHER SLANDER NAILED TO THE COUNTER. —The following letter from Judge Bur nett, to the k Hon. ffm. Southgate, is conclusive proof that Gen. Harrison has been at all times a con sistent Democrat. We call the attention of every De mocratic voter in the Union to the fact, that every slander propagated by the pensioned press, recoils on its authors; whilst the venerable patriot whom they assail, is like pure gold—unscathed by the fire of de traction. CINCINNATI, Feb. -27, 1540 Mr DEAR SIR: —I remark, in reply to your let ter of this morning, that during he tcontest between Mr. Jefferson and the elder Adams, Gen, Harrison and myself were residing in the Northwes tern Territory, and of course had not the privilege of voting. At that time, I was in habits of great inti macy with Gen. Harrison, although I was a Federal ist (honestly so) and he a republican of the Jefferson school. I suppor.ed Adams strongly, and he, with c411.1l warmth supported Air. Jefferson. During that controversy, from 1795 to 1800 inclusive, X conversed and argued with him times without number—he sus taining Air. Jefferson and Mr. Adams. You may as sure your friend, that there was not a more consis tent, deluded supporter of Air Jefferson, in the North Western Territory, then Gen. Harrison. For the truth of this declaration, I most willingly pledge my reputation. I state to you what I saw, and heard and know.— When the Alien and Sedition law passed, the Gene ral was not a member of Congress. He neither vo ted nor had an opprtunity of voting on that law. Your friend, J. BURNETT. Hon. WM. SOLTHGATE. We insert with much pleasure the following letter from Judge Bertien, not only because it is a conclusive answer to the charge of abolition ism, on which point it but confirms our own per. sonal knowledge of Gen. Harrison's opinions, but because it places before the public another distinguished name, among the many with whom we have acttd, who is now supporting the Old Hero. From the Charleston, S- C. Courier. Gen. Harrison and. Abolition. —We give place, with pleasure, to the following letter, from a dis tinguished Georgian, in answer to our recenteall on him, adding another to the already multiplied proofs of Gen. HARBISON'S soundness on the slave question. SAVANNAH, April 11, 1840. GENTLEMEN:— You call upon me, in your pa per of the Bth inst. to make public a letter, ad dressed to me by Gen. HRKRISON, on the subject of abolition. I have already replied to a similar request made by the Editor of the Daily Tele graph, a paper published in this city: but as I know not if that paper, (which has been recently established) is on your list of exchanges, and feel that the liberality of your conduct, towards a po litical opponent, gives you an undoubted claim to tire respect ard courtesy of his friends. I repeat the substance of that answer : The letter in question, was written in 1836, in , anticipation of a state of things, which did not, occur. It was, therefore, not made public, and I j fear has not been preserved. At least, after a j diligent search among mv papers, I have been | unable to find it Its contents, however, arc per- j l'ecrly within my recollection, and I do all that is I in my power to comply with your request, by I stating them, as I have done to the Editor of the Telegraph. The letter embraced three points : 1. Gen. HARRISON denied the right of Congress to abolish slavery in the slates, of in the District of Columbia. 2. He expressed the opinion that the Tariff compromise ought to remain undisturbed. 3. He repudiated the practice of making ap pointments to office, the reward of paxtizan ser vice. This was the purport of the letter. I did not ask Gen. HARRISON'S opinion, because I doubted it. Having been in intimate intercourse with him for several years, I knew that his views on these subjects were accordant with my own. I am very respectfully, gent, your obt. serv't., J. MACPHERSON BERRIEN. for the Pilot. THE FEATURES OF A PARTISAN. It being fair to observe, that the genteel arti cles in the Baltimore Republican, are usually those of its editor, while the grosser productions eminate from the pens of those who communi cate with its columns. We will in justice set a mark of distinction between them. The Editor of the Baltimore Republican s\xoxs.\&iiOi)Mive\>iie& on his head the sins of those who write for the Baltimore Republican. We will also give the dates of the errors we will correct: INTRIGUERS —There are in our city, a few designing and self-conceited individuals, profes sedly assuming to belong to the Democratic par ty, who to accomplish their sinister ends, are con tinnally engaged in plots and contrivances by which mischief is produced. — Ed. Ball- Rep. March 18ih, 1840. You should whip your friends into obedience with'a kinder hand, or else you will find them only "professedly assuming," as you complain "continually." Was General Harrison ever wounded whilst he had the command of the "Noith Western Army?"— Ball. Ii p. March 18. Indeed the fact, we believe,'is that he was gen erally, if not always, too far out of the reach of i d inger to run any risk of being wounded — Ed. Ball. Rep. March 18. Out of the reach of danger ! at Tippecanoe, where he leaped from his horse and got in the ranks and rallied his men. The mercy of Prov idence preserved him from wounds, as in the case of Washington, "always." Can any one be so ignorant, as to be led awa v bvthe vile misapprehensions of the Whigs? if there be such an one, he should go to the Hotten tots for enlightenment.'— Butt. Rep. March 18. If you had a spark of sincerity, you would not advise an ignorant man to go to the Hottentots for enlightenment! You have been doing these things so long with impunity, rhat it is time to expose you. I say, LET US RALLY ! Let us begin the work we have to perlbnn at an early dav, and see if we cannot give to the unprincipled fact'on, that is so constantly annoying, harrassing and distressing ihe community, the most complete de feat which they have ever yet experienced. I see plainly that we have a warm and animated con test to pass through.— Ball. Rep. March 18. Some part of what you say is true; but you un kindly mix wiili it what is not true. If ever a party was sincere about mending the distress of of the people, that party are the Whigs.— Truth is, neighbor, that your party "always" sinks the country when it rises—aDd your lan victory in New York, is the mere triumph of the defaulters in office. You struck at higher game than "the unprincipled faction," when you wrote the above for political effect. That is truth. The style in which they are at present boasting and blustering about their prospects of success in their effort to elect Gen. Harrison to the Presi dency, is quite equal to that of Ihe most despe rate player at brag that ever shuffled cards. — Ed. Bait. Rtp. March 18. Perhaps you shuffle too much; you don't brag a bit, of course, but only complain of our "style," which is but a matter of taste, unworthy of the "blustering" you make about it. Here we have confined our comment to the sentiments found in one single number of the Re publican. We design to show the reader the "style" in which that paper is conducted; how it it wins the affections of its patrons; how it poi sons the arrow which it shoots at its opponents; arid how it manages to gel along.

The Whigs of Louisville are animated by the proper spirit, and are determined that the Whig majority in November, shall be larger than they have ever neretofore given. EXTRACTS FROM A SPEECH Of the Hon. WM. COST JOHNSON, of Maryland, delivered in Congress. Will not Ihe whole South unite with the North and West, and go en tllassc (;>- r General Harrjson, and rid the country of the impotent, vicious, and knavish men who now administer' the Government ? Who that did not vote for him before is not now impressed with the be del'of the misrule which has prostrated every interest in the country and paralyzed every branch of business ? For one, I must say that I did not vote for General Harrison at the last election. I could not vote lor Mr. \ an Biireu; I preferred either Mr. Clay or Mr. Webster. It is also true that i preletred the nomination, at the Hnrrisbiirg Convention, ol either Mr. Clay or Gen. Scott. It is most true that 1 rejo'ced that, neither was nominated, and that the Convention wisely se lected General Harrison. 1 bad hardly paused, ui other pursuits and with my prelerences, to examine carefully bis entire history and charac ter minutely. I have, however, carefully ex amined and contemplated both. His hie is a beautiful and instructive study, reulete with incidents and marked by wisdom in all its che quered and varied scenes. It should be la niilinr to every American parent, and be the companion of every schoolboy. We find bis birth-place in Virginia, just be fore the revolutionary war. Born of a mother who, like the daughter or tie Scipio, could point to her sun as her brightest and most val ued jew el; his father standing side by side with Washington and Henry, and the great and glorious men who gave lustre to that State in the proudest days of her history, and his name ecorded on the Declaration of Independence. Inheriting the noble enthusiasm of his parents and the times of his youth, he goes forth with a commission from Washington, to carve his own destiny in the ranks of danger. Though youthful, ripe in mind, collected and brave when danger threatened, kind and gentle in all his social relations, we see him reaping laurels with his sword on many a hard-fought battle field. The war ended, skilful io civil council prompt to act upon the most intricate question, and his judgment always controlling his deci sions Again, we see liirn, in the hour ol our coun try's perils, throwing aside his civil duties ant) iis honors and yet rising in public esteem, un lil he is commander in e.hiel of the North west ern army. Not executing, as formerly, peril ous despacbes front his General, but leading on to victory his gallant and devoted soldiers; showing, in all bis bard fought battles, a pru dent firmness and a daring courage, which in spired his men with confidence, whilst it spread dismay and terror to bis cmm es, and made him victorious in all his dreadful engagements The war ended, you find him again in civil stations, as prompt and as uselul as in the bat tle's front. As Governor, his conduct was limitless, and bis abilities appreciated. In Congress, we find him devising a system to divide the public lands in small lots, so that i every poor man could purchase a home and a larm. In the Senate, wise in council, able in debale—his opinions and advice esteemed by all. As a minister, next to his anxiety lor the ■rlory of his own country, his solicitude was engaged for the prosperity of the young re publics of South America. What man living lias been in so many staiions so variant in their duties; and what man living could have dis charged them with such consummate ability and judgment? Who has a mind so weli bal anced, with so many high trails of intellect so well developed? And this eminent man, i who has' added so much lustre to the lame of his country, is traduced ami slandered by every adventuring politician of the Van Buren party. Go on and denounce him, gentlemen, wiih your vilest epithets. You make his cause the cause of the people. A man who has the ci vic wreath entwined with the martial on his 1 brow, cannot he injured by denunciation. The unatnral hand is withered 'hat would pluck one sprig from the ciiaplet won bv the toil ol the soldier and the statesman. He is one of the people, identified in leeling and interest with them, and they with him. They are his defenders and his friends. The people have themselves brought him forward vvitnout his solicitation, and the people will support him; and he stands as deeply imbedded ill the affec tions of the American people as the Alleghany and the Andes do in their soil. Hurl your de nunciations against him like the fitlttl and wrathful cloud 3 against the mountain's brow; it will fertilize and keep in perennial freshness the evergreen on its summit- The people have called upon his name to be their candidate for the Presidency because you have abused their confidence, not. redeemed your pledges and you have filled the land with suffering, bankruptcy and dis'ress. You promised 'hem gold when you closed the doors of the banks, and you have afflicted them with poverty. You have made the hanks suspend, and now you tell the people that they must work for as low wag s as the people of Eu rope. You have told the manufacturer and the merchant that they have no right to trade on credit, and you have forced the workshops to he closed ami ihclac'ory hands to he dis missed. You promised the farmer better pri ces for his flour, his corn, and his |>ork, and he cannot sell either for the cost of producing. You have abused and deceived the people, and now von insult them if they complain.— Von have hoarded up all 'he gold bv your of fice holders, and left the people not even good hank paper to do business upon. You have tried to destroy the capital of the country, and have reduced all wages. You have been ci ther too ignorant or too vicious not to know that wages must fall when money is scarce, and that wnrres can only be high when money is plenty. You have reduced, by your mea sures,the wages oflhe laborer and the mechan ic, whilst your salaries have been increased by the scarcity of money. You can pay your selves in gold and silver, whilst the mechanic, the farmer, and the merchant cannot dispose of their commodities, for even good bank pa per. The Jay of retribution is close at ban J; you have refused to listen Jo the complaints and suffering of the people; and they will do them selves justice at the ballot box. The people are moving in their majesty and their power; and will elect General Harrison by acclama tion. He is a farmer, as well as a soldier and a statesman; lie understands the interest of the farmers, and Iras a sympathy which you have not, for the laboring man and the mechanic, The people will call him from the plough, as the Romans did Cincinnatus of old, to quiet domestic confusion and disorder, and to put the Republic once more in a prosperous condi tion. Post up your books, then, I tell you fair ly, and square your accounts Itonesl'y, or burn up your departments as yon have done here tofore, or Ue will punish your army of default ers. The voice of the people is heard already like the moving of mighty waters. They have agitated the waters that healing may spring from them. You had as well try and stop the voice of the wind, as to siiffe the voice of the people, Your selfish office holders who have fattened upon the substance of the people, will try and oppose their will, but it will be useless. The people can and will "shake them off as easy us the lion does the dew drops from his mane." "The People will remember," in the patriot ic sentiment of General Harrison, "that to pre serve their liberties, ihev must do their ou>n voting and tluir own fighting" A gentleman who had the anecdote from the hps of the late Gen. Tipton himself, lias been so kind as to commit it to writing lor our use— Yeoman. ANECDOTE OF THE RATTLE OF TIP PECANOE. During the last Presidential contest, the mil itary claims of Gen. Harrison were freely can vassed, and some of his opponents did not scru pleto charge him with a want of courage. The late Gen. Tipton, of the United States Senate, who had served as an Ensign at the battle of Tippecanoe, was asked by a friend, "what think you, General, ot Harrison's courage?"— He replied, "I think him as brave a man as ever lived—no one could have behaved with more true courage than he did —while the en gagement was hottest, and when the bullets Hew thickest, he was to be seen speaking in liis ordinary tone, and giving command with the greatest precision. The company to which I belonged," said Gen. Tipton, "went into ac tion eighty strong, and only twenty survived— the firing upon us was most tremendous. Af ter the General had made his arrangements for repelling the attack of the Indians at other points, lie rode up to where I was, and made the following inquiries : "Where's your Cap lain?" He is dead, sir—"Where is the first or second Leiutenant?" They are both dead, was the reply. "Well, where is the Ensign ? " "He stands before you, General. "Well, my brave lellow"snid Harrison, "hold your ground liirjfive minutes longer, and all will be safe."— In fifteen minifies the enemy was repulsed oa all sides. Tipton gallantly led on his few re maing comrades to the charg", ami viciory perched upon the Am riean banner. As an evidence of Harrison's coolness in the midst of danger, Gen. Tipton staled that at the moment the conversation ended between him selfand General Harrison, and as the horse up on which was mounted his aid, the late Gen. Taylor, of Indiana, was in the act of turning, a rifle ball pierced him through the body and brought him to the g ound, catching his rider's legs under him. It was a favorite black horse of the General's, and he exclaimed. "Ah, is my gallant old black gone! Well, rise and mount again, for we have no time to mourn the loss of ahorse, when so many brave ones are exposed to a similar fate" -and having re mounted his aid, he dashed into the midst of 'he danger. In a few minutes the battle was over.
