Johr.son said, (in Consrrcs';) "Who is den. Harrison ! The son of one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, who spent the greater part of his lurgc fortune in redeem inr the nledire lie 'then gave, of his 'fortune, life rind sacred honor,' to secure the liberties of his coun try. "Of the career of Gen. Harrison I need not peak tlio history of the West, is his history For forty years he bus been identified with its in forests, its Derils and its hopes. Universally be oved in the walks of ppace, and distinguished hy his ability in the councils of his country, he ha been yet more illustriously distinguished in the fifld. "During the late war, he was longer in active rvice than any other General officer , be was per haps, oftencr in action than any one of them, and never sustained a defeat." Ja.mes Maoison, ill a special message to Con t'ress, Dec. 18, 1811, said, While it is deeply lainenled that so many valu able lives have been lo.t in the action which took place on the 7ili ultimo, Congress will sec with satisfaction the dauntless spirit of fortitude victo riously displayed by every description of troops en Raged, as aril as the collected f.rnmess uhich distin guished their commander mi an occasion requiring lH' utmost txtrlirms of xa'our and discipline.

He put an end to the War in the uppermost Uannda." Sentiments of the Hero of Fort Stephenson, Col. Croghan, now of the War Department: "I desire no plaudits which are bestowed upon me at the expense of Gen. Harrison. "I have felt the wannest attachment for him as a man. and my confidence in him as an able com mander remains unshaken. I feel every assurance that he will at all times do me ample justice; and nothing could give me more pain than lu see his en emies seize upon tins occasion to ueal out their nn friendly feelings and acrimonious dislike; and as lonir as be continues, (as in my humble opinion he has ltitherto done,1 to make the wisest arrangements and the mast judicious disposition, which the forces under his command will justify, I shall not hesitate to unite with the army in bestowing upon him that confidence which he so richly merits, and which has on no occasion been withhold." Lastly we come to the ncnt compliment of 1 nomas Hiclue, h.mor ol the Kichmonil Lnquir er, the leading organ of the Coalition in the South, who now brandishes his old "chapelcss sword with two broken points, ' and threatens devastating war upon the conqvorcr ef the Brit, tish and Indian Coalition of the West! The Richmond Enquirer said: "General Harrison's letter toils OS every thing that we wish to know about tha officers, except him self.

Under this title the undersigned propose" to pub lish, in the Town uf Taris, Monroe County, Mis souri, a Weekly Journal, to ho doolcd, principally to Political, Agricultural, Commercial, and Scien tific information, but to embody the usual variety which is found in a Family Nf.wspaif.r. In Politics, the paper will he thoroughly Whig. The Editor in no respect doubts tho election of Uenkiiai. Harrison to the Presidency, and as little doubts lhat Hie course of his administration wiil be such as to deserve the support cf tho Sepnblicun party, of which he is a muiubcr. If so, it shall have his. He will be pleased, also, to act with the same enlightened party in reference to measures of State policy, ond will do so, to I ho extent of his capacity, and the acquiescence of his judgment. As the name ho has chosen was intended to in dicate, his paper will ?'imiA:.i" alike the wrongs and the virtues of the'itorld around it regurdless of whom it may effect, in praise or in censure. A Xewspaper, on any other principle, is a misnomer and a mockery. The untiring zeal with which the Democratic party in this State, carried on the war in our late elections together with the villany, industry, end the celerity with which they carried into execution their plans, will remain as an alarming and an en during monument of Democratic enterprise! Like the lamed Jjpigon, which is said never to close Ins lidlesseyes, the slirringand pilfering spirit of De mocracy, slumbers (if at oil) with unclosed ryes! Ihenase, contemptible, and tulse-henrted flattery, with which these political hypocrites attempt to in sinuate themselves into favor; and the skill with which these ponderers and parasites these syco phants and demagogues of Democracy, manage to get upon the blind side of human nature, and tu take an advantage of its weakness and passions, must all belaid naked before the gaze of an honest, an unsuspecting, but heretofore deluded people. In one word, the time has again approached, when we must all enter upon a great political contest. Like that through which we have just passed in our State, it will be a contest nf principle against power a contest of the people against the ojice-holders. We are nune.of those who indulge in gloomy onlicipa tion. We do not despair ot tho Republic. Our trust is strong, that the gallant ship, in which all our hopes are embarked, will yet outride the storm saved alike from the breakers and billows ofdis, union, and the greedy whirlpool the all engulph ing malestruoms of executive power that un broken, if nut unharmed, she may pursue her pros perous voyage far down the sir turn of time; on that the banner of our country, which now waves over us so proudly, will still float in triumph borne on the winds of heaven, fanned by the breath of fame, every stripe bright and unsullied, every star lixed in its sphere, ages alter each ot us shall have ceased to gaze on its majestic folds forever. We shall commence and continue the good fight, till error, sick with contradiction, and crazed with a superabundance of inconsistency, shall be seen flying to falsehood as a remedy, and expiring from rite venom of its own fangs. We will continue the warfure, till the night of superstition shall pass away the purple morn of reason shall dawn the lints ol truth appear and Ibe gloomy mists fade in the distance, and shik below the horizon to rise no more! Till the hallowed name of Liberty, more fragrant than the Spring gales of Arubia, more balmy than Uilead s air, thrills the bosom where despair once revelled, and whispers, "good tidings for ad mankind." In a word, we trust, we shall nut relax our efforts, till trophies of victory, in smiles and peace, deck the brows of those who once were saddened with doubt and uncertainty, and sunk with political sorrows, to the depths ol a iory s hell. To all those who value the liberty we yet enjoy the privileges bequeathed lu us by our heroic sires, let them immediately step forward and lend their aid to the "IIekald." OCrlf encouraged according to the expectation of his triends, the K-Jilor will shortly feel justified in ordering his materials and commencing Ins enter prise. He desires tu du so us speedily as possible, and, to this end, he respectfully requests gentlemen into whose hands his prospectus may fall, to exert themselves to fill them with names, as promptly as may be, and return him a list tu Paris. The sheet will be a large imperial one handsomely printed, and furnished at three dollars in advance, or four dollars at the end of the year. JOSEPH LANCASTER. Pa kis, September 5th, li40.
