If llio establishment of a bank could on muds sub

provement as may he thouejit must likely to prove
beneficial And useful.
Fellow Citizens. ITavo tlio inducements nnd
promises of this unity, in relation ta n flank
been realized? How much good has liecn ac
complished by the establishment which is called
"the Dank of Missouri?" We might he tempted
to expose its opperntious, nnd to deinomTrate not
only us utter motility, considered us n Bank,
but the ubsolulu and wide spread injury it Ins oc
casioned to every general interest which looked
to it for n fulfillment of the promises nnd prodic.
lions of those who made it. But we forbear. The
pledges nnd the falsifications nre both before yon,
and it is for your decision whether the guilty mi.
thors of both shall escape upon the new nnd false
clamour which is now raised against the Whigs!
Saamo ! Eternal Shame ! !
Theatinie party uiul the sane lenders will tell
jrou that Col. Benton and iMr. Van Huron ore
for the graduation nnd preemption bills, and that
the re-election of Mr. Van Buren constitutes the
only hope of carrying theso obicr ts. All ih:s, too.
will b ) asserted in the face of thf. journals of
Congress whion shew that General Harrison was
the author nnd founder of our resent land sys
tem, more than 20 years before either Col. 13. or
the President had even n seat in Congress in the
toeth, too, of nil the votes of General Harrison
in favour nnd the votes of Mr. Van Buren against
these bills during the period they served toguilic
in the Senate, and the reiterated declaration of
Gen. H., during the present canvass,' that his
opinions of the justice and policy of the pre em p.
tion system are confirmed instead of changed.
You will be told that the Whigs are opposed to
the reduction of the duty on Salt, and that there
fore you must voto for Mr. Van Buren notwith
standing wo read from the Register of Debates
now before us that General Harrison introduced
the bill to repeal the duly in 182S, and opposed
the motion of Mr. Van Buren for its i -definite
postponement, in a masterly and unanswerable
speech i f several pages !
These devices, und scores besides th"m, will
doubtless be resorted to, in order to beguile- the
minds of the upright, but less informed portion
of tho people, Ironi the real issues involved in
this momentous controversy. We hence desire
to impress, again, in the conclusion of our re
and HIS puiiposrs and Mk. VAN BUREN
akd HIS. As n Statesman, you must be satis
fied, from the evidence before yon, that tho former
hasinore rigidly adhered to the republican creed,
in adversity as well as prosperity, than his com
petitor and in this respect he stands before us
at least the more reliable candidate of the two.
Asa Citizen, his life is unstained by dishonor,
unclouded by intrigue mid untarnished by wrong.
Asa Soldier, HISTORY has placed his name
and his deeds above the breath of that envenomed
detraction, which would sacrifice the 'veiy angels'
to compass the sordid designs of those who em
ploy it. If thos ( who yet seek to impose upon
the credulity of the people they have so long and
so fatally practised upon can make them believe
that William Henry Harrison was not "the
first Military character" of Ins ay, then indeed
shall we have renounced the histories which we
have read at school, and even our very "house,
hold woids" will be turned into lies at the bidding
of party! But we appeal to the middle utrcd and
the giey haired men of the coun ry ! Teil us
where this slniidered soldier was in the snows o!
18 12, when his competitor was in the L"j:sia!iire
of New York, voting against Midi son--"the
soul of tha war?" Stand forth, ye who r-!,aicd
his perils nnd privations in the wilderness morass
es of the North, nnd stood by him until he-fi ;w
the flag of your country and his, from the smoul
deiing ruins of the arsenals und the prison houses
of Maiden !
Fellow citizens We must needs refer tho story
of hit services in the field, from the period of hi
subalterncy under Wayne, until tl.e close of his
career as a victorious Geiierul-in-cliicf, to the vo
luminous histories of that day, when no political
motivo existed either to traduce him or the" other
gallant spirits who had devoted themselves ia their
country. To refute the slanders, in detail, whirli
are now propogated against him, would be to re
write that history, even an appendix to which is
more than we have room for here. It may tafiiee
to cover all these charges, that the Legislatures jf
Kentucky and Indiana, the officers who served under
him, including Shelby and Juhnson and Daviess and
Cast, his aids-de-camp (without regard to their poli
tical bias) and scores whose names wo have even
not room for, have approved him a brave soldier, an
able commander, a pure patriot und nil honorable
man. If we have room in the appendix, some ol
these testimonials will be therein embodied. Ai
this place, we can only ventur.) on the spare
sufficient to record the following joint resolution,
which passed belli houses of Congress with but a
dissenting voice, after years of i-quiry and inves
tigation had stamped the wisdom of his measures
the baseness of his slanderers! Wc copy from page
117 of the session acts of the lit sessir n of '.ho ifi'li
Congress, now before us on which is also recorded
a resolution of the same date presenting u sword
to Col. Johnson fur his gallantry and good conduct.

To conclude; It has bren our duty, fellow
citizonn--of one of us especially -to trace, with
the most ample references to colcmpornry doeii
merits and unduniablo authorities, ihe story 'of
this great man and puro patriot, and of tho times
in which lis acted.
From the dawn of the gloomy and soul-trying
era, wher his first subaltern onenmpment was
pitched nidsl tho savago allies of England, in
die wildernes, spot which now boasts itself the
"Queen City of the West," and the day, about
equidistant between that period and this, when
he flew the flag of his eountiy, at the head of a
gallant and victorious nimr, in tho uppermost
Canada; " Low sublime nnd icsplendant the
tiansition from gloom to glory!" The pen re
fuses its wonted ol'ice, and tiie mind of the patriot
must needs luxuiin'.e in iiiuiu ad.uiraiion, while
contemplating the grey hair.', nnd the declining
years, of a life thus virtuously, iisofully, nnd
nobly spent. For his country, we have seen him
forego 111 prospects of couip iralive e;i.c and pro
babio wealth, held out by a libeial education and
an honorable profession, backed by the advan
tages of his birth, conncx;ons anil friends.
" With no fortune hut his sword," unendowed
except by a chainless spirit and nu educated mind,
wo have seen him fi.'ht his way s .t'ce.-slhliy to
. - t CM. . 1 . . I i .
tliostue oi vvayne, uiio receive me iin iteil niul
ohl. ial to U" dictation ol that oaring and veteran
general, before lie had passed through the fust
jcarnf his leeal manhood.
Never contemplating the profession of arms
as n p. ruiaiicnt enipluymciif, we have seen him
lay down his commission when the biilliaut and
decisive victory of which ho thus proudly shared
the glory, had broken the savage hope of con
quest, awi.l him to submission, and restored ihe
country lo comparative pence, nnd its inh ibilanU
lo comparative security. We aave contemplated
htm next projecting n permanent lucoqioiation
with the leacelul and virtuous cultivators of the
soil they ha I reclaim tI. and, anon, called by Hie
distinction of Irs talents, and the puiity o' his
character,, ta the Matiot: of Secretary an I Vice
Governor of the vast territory which is now I
starred with stales and dot'.e ' with cities. A tear
elapses, his territoiy entcis the so nnd grade of
government, the legislature i.-. authorized lo elect
a delegate to Congress, and Harrison is chosen. If
he had rendered no other service duri g that pe
riod or afisrwards, than we have detailed on an
other page, the man whose report and speeches
carried lluough Congress that change in ihe sys
tern of difpcs'iig of the public domain which
brought its possession within the compass of all
alike, would have lived and have died, a great
National Benefaotoii, und the indigent nnd
middle interest husbandry o ihe "empire valley"
wo inhabit, would have owed a monument to the
memory of tho Republican Statesman who first
conceived the design of a home for tho poor as
well as the rich 1
But it was pot in tho design of Providence thai
the jusi and feeling should ihus pass aw y : His
errand wis unfinished it was, indeed, but ju-t
commencing, when thus concluding the work
which has so justly contiibiited to characterise
him a the ' Father of the Wist."
Who that has read the story of his delicate de
clension to accept the government of the North-
western territory, over the head of the venerable,
the accomplished, but ill-fated St. Clair, and has
afierwaids witnessed :ho manner in which he sub.
sequantly administered tho affairs of that larger
and "tore I'ifiicult portion which fell to him by
the appoint nent of JofTersa.i, lifter its ( ivision by
