The first general meeting of the Tippe
canoe Club ot Howard county will be held
in the Court-House, in Fayette, on Mon
day the fourth day of May, for the purpose
of organizing for duty by the e'ection of
the necessary officers for the County and
the Township. It is hoped every member,
as well as every friend of the cause will
attend if they can.
By order of the Club,
President Pro tkm.
We hope that our friends will permit no ordinary
consideration to keep thera at home on Monday
next. On the effective and proper organization of
the Tippecanoe Club will more materially depend
the -esult of the Presidential election in Howard
than on any thing else that occurs to us. It is ne
cessary too that action should be token in reference
to the Harrison encamp:nent set ou foot by the
Clubs of Cooper and Boone a notice of which
will be found below. Wo are now as certain of
carrying Howard as we are of any event so dis
tant. Many of our friends, since the loco-foco
"dhow of hands" on monday last, assure us that
the disgust it occasioned among the more staid and
reflecting citizens who have heretofore acted wit!
that party is deep and abiding. We have ourselves
heard one of them declare, that "such contrivances
and proceedings as had been got up by the office
holders was a burlesque on the democracy to whicli
they laid claim and such must be the verdict of all
who did not "fall in the ranks" and "march between
the tellers" of the BANK, the LAND OFFICE
and the POST OFFICE.
But we close with renewing the exhortation to
our friends to come up on Monday. Ours is a peo
plo's meeting intended to promote the election of
.one of the people, and in no respect to interfere
with, control or influence the choice of the people
n relation to subordinate officers. The objects
are at distinct and different as is the true demo
cratic republicanism which we profess, from the
democratic aristocracy of the office holding junto
which are now known to have got up, managed
and controlled the ridiculous, degrading and insult
ing farce on Monday. Again we say. let all come,
Ho free while man will be excluded.

We have just received the following from
Boone ville. Our columns arc up, but we
take out to give place.
Upon the suggestion of the friends of Gen
Harrison, in the Counties of Boone, How
aid and Cooper, it has been determined to
call a joint meeting of the Tippecanoe
Clubs of those counties at Roclieport, on the
18th day of June next, to continue ou the
ground two days
The friends of General Harrison, through
out the State, in person or bv their Com
mittees, and, in an especial manner, the
the LAST WAR are respectfully and cord
tally invited to attend.
As it is proposed to co into a full, fai
and temperate discussion of the measures
of the Administration and the principles
and qualifications of the Candidates for the
Presidency, such of our opponents, as are
inclined to hear and participate in such an
investigation, are respectfully solicited to
be piesent.
It is recommended to the YOUNG MEN
of the State, friendly to the election ol
General Harrison, to organize in their re
spective counties and take measures to he

A correspondent very justly commends the
manly and dignified conduct of Major Sebrse, the
Receiver of Publio monies on Monday last. He
stood aloof, from the commencement, takirg "no
part in the business," until toward the very last,
when the contest for Sheriff having narrowed
down to a point involving the interest and success
of Mr. Criglar, he so far yielded to the desire to
serve his old neighbor "Lewis" as to go in, with
out saying a word, and be counted amongst his
friends. The conduct of this officer, so eminently
in contrast with all the others, exemplifies the
ifference between a man who served with approba
tion and distinction under Harrison, and those who
either left the army with dirty hands themselves,
or were not there to witness his conduct. It is
fficultto tell which of these classes are the most
brave and potent in the grocery, or in a water mel-
lon patch. But we forbear, lest our humble com
mendation of the conduct of a political opponent
should cost him his office under this "reign of
One of these who "swam the river T." has been
frequently pointed out to us. He is "dead against
old Tip." The boys about the streets are in the
habit or repeating, whenever they see mm in
town, the couplet ot burns
"Ult would some mend the giftie gie us,
To see oursel as others see us," &c.
We tliiuk the vote for the candidates for
Sheriff, on Monday last, was about as fair
and as full a test of the reduced strength ol
the Loco-focos in Howard as could possibly
have been obtained. Four popular citizens,
representing every main division of the
countyjand having strong friends and 5tip'
porters in every corner of it, had been in
duced to agree, publicly, to submit their re
spective pretensions to a general meeting
of the pnrtv, to be holden months after
wards, thereby allowing the most ample
time for electioneering for the nomination
which they all regarded as equivalent to an
lection. We need not say that the various
gentlemen, and their prominent friends,
availed themselves of the time thus granted
to the utmost of their ability and address
We have met them all at several of the
recent Club meetings, and have heard tf
them at others bringing into requisition
the proper quantity of "whiskey'" and other
sound electioneering arguments. In short
Mr. Crigler, Mr. Rucker, Murphy and Cap
tain Edgar " left no stone unturned" which
might honorably be employed to procure a
nomination which, as before remarked
they (mistakingly) considered as equivalent
to an election. Knowing this, (and know
the Sheriff's nomination, who would ULTI
Van Buuen) the friends of the old Hero
awaited the annunciation of the aggregate
vote, on the last ballot between Mr. Crigler
and Mr. Rucker, as an index, as certain as
could bo well obtained, of the strength
which can now be commanded by the hold'
eis lor their candidate. II we correctly
heard the annunciation of that result, the
aggregate vole was olG. Turning to the
vote iu 1333, between Messrs. Allen and
Harrison for Congress, we find the nggrc
gate vote of the county to have been 150G
Of these, we know that dozens of Loco
l'ocos have since moved away their place
bring generally supplied by Whigs, or Dcm
ocrats who prefer General Harrison an
his measures io the re-election of Marti
Van Buren and a perpetuation of jus ruin
ous policy. We snow more than foht
ol those who have staid behind who are
nevertheless no longer Van Burenites
several of whom were in town on Monday
and not only refused ull bolicitations to act
in the meeting, but otherwise openly repu
diated the departure of Martin Van Bure
and his leading friends (particularly the
office holders) from the principles that had
brought the party into power.
On the whole we believe the friends of
old fashioned republicanism are clearly in
the majority in old Howard. Allowni
that there were even two hundred loco
focos who cmild mt be brought to tl
scratch even on the Sheriff's nomination
("election," as we said before) and that all
who did vote will ultimately vote for there
election of the present incumbent of the
Presidential chair, still this would leave the
opposition a majority of something like on
hundred votes.
We can, we must and we will give that
or a heavier majority, to any respectable
ticket who are right in state politics the
only thing for which the Whigs will con
tend, or for which any voter ought to con
tend, in an election for the state legisla
ture. Mr. Crigler having been from the begin
ning, the choice of a large majority of the
Whigs in this and other sections of the
county, and the whole party having pro
tested, from the first, against making that
election in any sense a political one, we feel
authorized to say that no opposition will be
started against him. There will hence be
no contest no excitement no intriguing
in reference to this officer and, so far as
the Whigs, and that portion of the late
democracy who are in favor of breaking
down the ridiculous and anti-republican
farce which was enacted bv the office hold
ers on Monday, are concerned, their votes
will be given for those candidates for the
Senate and and House of Representatives,
ho agree best with them, and are best
alculated to carry out the true interests of
the country and the State. They have
maintained this doctrine when in the iin-
ritv, and willjnot abandon it now that they
believe themselves in the majority.
Our readers will recollect, that next Friday is the
day fixed upou by the Loco-foco orators, of Frank
lin, to answer, or rather attempt to answer, Mr.
Leonard's speech at that place on the 22d ult. Mr.
Hickerson is to open the discussion, and is to con-
no his remarks to one hour, Mr. Lowry, if wo un-
lerstand the arranecment. is to follow Mr. It
giving a birds eye glance" of matters and things
n general ond is to confine his remarks to half an
our. Dr. Redman took care not to state the
length of his speech, but it is presumed it will be
somewhat protracted. We have heard it intimated
that those democratic orators would back out from
their 'pledge soma of the more calculating of the
arty, fearing the result. The Democrat is also
silent on the subject. It is said the " arrangement
was made in the heat of excitement," and there
fore the parties would not hold themselves respon
sible, &c. &.c. But this wont do ; thev must either
toe the mark" or honorably back out. The dis.
cussion is just what the Whigs want, and is what
the leaders uf the federal Locos, most fear.
We have learned a good anecdote respecting the
probable result of the approaching election for the
Presidency, which "came off" a few davs ago be,
ween a rabid loco on the one side and a clear
headed, cyphering Whig on the other. The loco
was predicting with great certainty the re-election
of Martin Vun Buren when, being a little pressed
by the H hig as to where he was to get the votes
from, lie took his pencil and commenced setting
down the states that he claimed for Van Buren
commencing at New Hampshire and ending at Mis.
souri. He had a troodly number of Slates struntr
" a
together by this process, but lo ! when the Whig
proposed to carry out the number of voles which
they were respectively entitled lo give, and to add
all these together, there were seven still lacking
This is a true anecdote, and only shews the depth
of the self-delusion even of the leading locos
This one had never counted up the difference be
tween the little breeches pocket States which are
claimed as certain for Van, and tho two and forty
and thirty and one and twenty pounders which are
equally certain for the republican candidate of the
Glorious from New York City ! !
When we penned our article last week, we did
not anticipate (as our readers may have noticed)
that we should gain in the City of New York
the seat of the Custom House and its army of stl
pendaries, whose salaries are poured out like water
to bribe, corrupt and control the election. Bu
the popularity of the "old soldier" strike terror
even at the very door of tho ' money changers !
We have but little more space to spare than may
be suflicient to record the following account current
as we find it " posted" by that clear headed and
clean handed old Whig tho editor of tho New
York Commercial Advertiser. If any tiling could
add to the joy with which we record these prelim
nary triumphs of the people, it would be furnished
in the assurances we receive from every quarter,
that the name of General Harrison, like that of
General Jackson, is stronger than that of any of
his friends, This is so here it is so in Pennsvlva.
nia, as will be seen by a letter from one of its Con
gressional representatives in another column it
is so every where. His election is therefore no
longer matter of speculation.
Out-numbered, hut not defeated beaten and yet
victorious. These are contradictions of terms.
but they are nevertheless true. The Whigs went
into iui4 election without duo preparation, an
under every possible disadvantage. Then did not
expect to carry the city. Their principal object in
contesting the election at all was to preserve their
organization, and to hold their own was all they
expected to accomplish. And in this they have
succeeded, notwithstanding the prodigious efforts
of their opponents.
But the Whigs have dono more than to barely
hold theirown. The majoriiy of tho administration
party has been handsomely reduced since the last
autumn, notwithstanding the manufacture, bv the
.unniio vuuri, wiuiin uiu past ween, ot upward
two thousand voters, most of whom, beyond I
doubt, voted for Variun. The army of laborers
upon the Croton water works, swelled the agrarian
vote by many Hundreds, striking harder at the
polls by reason of their recent strike for higher
wages, and the continued refusal of large numbe;
of them to return to their work.
Again : tbe preliminary operation of the registry
law was so far in their favor as greatly to multiply
.1.- r..:i:.:.... i- j-..ui- .....rJ
ma lucimies li'r uuuuiu vuiing, WI1ICU luCUllies,
thero is every reason to believe, were not ne
glectcd. Nor is this all ; we are assured by the
morning papers, the Express in particular, that the
Fourth and Seventh wards wer taken from the
resident citizen of the wards, by th u United States
sailors of two ships of war, the Independence and
Fairfield, who have just been paid off, and Whom
their landlords have influenced lo vote the Loco
Foco ticket, once at least. The Fourth and Sev
enth both would have been Whig wards, but
their votes. The Hook District last night pr
sented one of the most extraordinary spectacles
ever oflered in our country. .1 lie honest Jack lurs,
after having been used through the day, were aban
doneu to their worst enemies at night.
A yet greater outrage was perpetrated in the
Sixth ward, whore, as we are informed, the Egypt
inn Tombs were explored, and the prisoners
brought forth, to vote the agrarian ticknt. And
yet, notwithstanding all these disadvantages, the
Whigs have handsomely reduced the majority of
the Tammany candidates, even in the last death
struggles of the unregistered illegal voters to
maintain their ascendancy. The result is a
proud one for the Whigs. It proves beyond
doubt, that the State will go for Harrison next
November by from twelve to twenty thousand ma
jority. And it also proves, that when tho regis
tration of voters is mude in the tall when men
who present themselves to the inspectors will be
compelled to show that they live somewhere, and do
not vote under an alias this city will be trium
phantly carried by the Whigs.
(Jr Our friends in New York seem nut to enter
tain a doubt of our success at the Presidential elec
tion. The American says: "We cannot say we
are altogether disappointed at the success of the
Loco Focos in holding their own in this city and
assuredly we are in no manner discouraged thereby.
We said yesterday, deliberately, what we now re
peat, that nothing less than the old Jackson majority
in this city, of some six thousand, could cast even
shade of doubt upon the result in the State next
November: and lo! instead of six thousand, the
Loco Foco majority is about fifteen hundred less,
by somo hundreds, than they obtained last fall.
With the aid of tho registration ef votes, which
before the fall election will be effected: and more
familiarity with the districts, we have the greatest
confidence that, in November, the city will be what
the State is, and will remain, Whig.
We have not room for the communication of our
correspondent respecting the party generally, and
udge Reynolds particularly, on the subject of "gra
dual abolition." The Democrat of Wednesday
contains a statement of Judge Napton, who was the
editor of that paper in 1(333, which, along with the
first paragraph of his editorial comments of that
ay we deem it but just to publish. Our friends
in Cooper will doubtless look out for the gentleman
whose name tho Judge his nut permission to pub
ish. It will bo seen that tho error of the correS'
pondent of the " Times" consisted alone in fu!lin
in with the "universal opinion" which ascribed the
authorship of "A Slaveholder" in 'oO, to the pre
sent "democratic" candidate fur Governor. It was
not Aim, but another " stern democrat" on the other
ide of the river, whose name Judge X. h-ts not per
mission to publish. Well : The doctrine so falsely
ascribed to Gen. Harrison, and for which he w as to
have been run down ns no democrat, is fixed, firmly
and adhesively, by the showing of Judge Napton
on a leading member of the democratic party o
1933 with whom Judge Reynolds may or may
not concur. 0rH; does not sau.Jj)
Our object is thus accomplished. I', is all right
in a stern democrat and "A Slaveholder," too, to
be in favor of setting the negroes free in '3j. ;
must not be turned out of "the party" for that. Oh
no ! he must be patted on the head kept in his
name withheld, and himself re-elected as a " stern
democrat" in 13-10. Meanwhile, tho vilest fabrica
tions are resorted to to excite a similar suspicion
against General Harrison, and the same parly and
the same press affect the extreme of horror at t!icir
own vile falsehoods ! Such is the Eoon's Lick
Democrat such are tho leaders of the "democracy."

To the Editor of the Democrat:
An editorial article in the Boon's Lick Times of
the 13th inst., has been shown to me this mornig,
in which a communication published in the Democrat
of 1335, and signed 'A Slaveholder,' has been attri
buted to Judge Reynolds. Having been the Editor
of the Democrat at the time that communication ap
peared, 1 feel it my duty to state that Judge Key-
nolds was not the author. It was written by a gen
tleman who lives on the south side of the Missouri
river, and whose name I should nut hesitate to give,

room for the communication of our correspondent,
who, unlike ourselves, was an eye witness to much
of the scheming and manauvreiug whicli made up
and made out the ridiculous furce on Munday. He
asks us again to publish the receipts of Thomas
Jelferson and Andrew Jackson against the con
duct of the Prosident, Cashier and Directors of
the Bank, 111 league with the Register and Post
master on Monday. No movement could bo made
no gate way could be guarded and counted without
one of these. In short, it was they who originated
the meeting managed all the juft-caucuse which
were held for days bote re, and finally controlled its
action in ell respects which essentially concerned
them or theirs. Look at thenominees luok at the
nun most concerned and then answer whether the

words being made into To district, and there being
no registry now, there is no moans of ascertaining
a man's right to vote, and it is very possible fur n
mn to vote 20 or 30 times. This kind uf fraud i

their dresses and their names, and appear in dilh r
ent parts of the city. If challangcd, they get off by
a pretended mistake of the bounds of the district,
and many of them swear their votes right through.
The scenes of last spring are thus renewed. Our
election is likely to be another farce. In;!ccd, no
thing but a registry can approximate toward an
honest system of voting in such a populous and
oueencity as this. We speak all tongues. We
come from all lands. We live in all place. Il is
a political Babel, where people are but tenants to

result now, unless something turns up beyond
what can now be calculated upon. Uen. Harrison
