Aitliouoh it was asserted by the writer that, these narratives were the records of facts, few, I presume, were will ing to belie. e that real Me could furnish matter of such mmantic interest.

Gen. Harrison once offered two-thirds of the town-tit of St. Louie, for the simple signature) of hi name. Had he complied, he would now have been the richest man west of the Alle gmes.

(Jalena Gazette pallrf Col, Richard M. Johnson to Gen.

Harrison, August 18, 1817, says : "The prompt change made by you in the order of battle on discovering the po sition of the enemy, has always appeared to me to have evinced a high degree of Military talent. 1 concur with the vene rable Shelby in his general apptobati'on of your conduct in that campaign. Extract of a letter from Col. Daviess. who was killed at the battle of Tippecanoe August 4, 1811 : ' I am free to declare that I have imagin ed I here were two milir&rv men in the West. and Gen: Harrison is the first of the two. J. H. DAVIESS." The Richmond Enquirer, now next to the Globe, high in the confidence of the administration, said : "Gen. Harrison s letter tells us every thing that we wish to know about the offi cers, except himself. He does justice to every one but Harrison and the world must therefore do justice to the man who was too modest to h just to nunselt." In the Legislature of Indiana, on the ltth Nov. 1811, tho Speaker of the House of Representatives, Gen Wm. Johnson, thus addressed C en. Harrison i . "Sirs The House of Representatives, of the Indiana Territory, in their own name and in behalf of their constituents, most cordially recipi orate the congratulations of your excellency on the glorious result of the late sanguinary conflict with the Shaw nee Prophet, ant! the tribe of Indiana, con federated with him when we see displayed in behalf of our country not only the con summate abilities of the General, but the heroism o' the gnan and when we take in to view the benefits which tnntt remit tn India. Asecdotb. The following spe cimen uf Indian wit related to me a few evenings since, is too good to be Inst. One ot the Indians who lurnierlv inhabi ted the shares of Rnbbins' pond in this country, being out upon a hunting excur sion, chanced to pass the house of Mr. W , who was engigcd in feeding a large flock of turkies near the house. Main the Indian, feeling very thirsty, went up to Mr. w. ano asi.en tor tome cmer, who tout him to go into the house and his wife wouid draw him a mug full. Sam, in going to the house, muttered to himself, but loud enough for Mr. W. to heir 'how I should like to have one shot at them.' Mr. W. who was fond of a joke, took the gun which Sam hail left at the door and drew the shot from it. " Well, Sam," said Mr. W. 'you should like to have a shot at my turkies, what will you give ma tor a shot?' Sam after some hesitation agreed tn give a dollar. Every thing being ready .Sam levelled his gun and tired: and as might be expected, the tu kies were more frightened than hurt. Sun stood mute with astonishment, and flinging ins gun across nis snouiuer, said ' Ham ne ver made such a shot as that before, and walked off. It was about two weeks from the time Sam made his unlucky shot that he agiin called on Mr. W. fur more cider; who thinking to get another loko upon him. sent him into Ihe house for the cider and again drew his shot from his gun which was left beside the door. On Sam's return ho was asked by Mr. W. what he would give for another shot at his turkies. A barrrain was made and Sam was te give another dollar for a shot provided Mr. W. would rail them together. Sam fired aud killed six besides wounding eight or ten more. If Sam's astonishment was great at his first unfortunate shot, Mr. W. was not less now when he beheld the havoc made, as he sup posed, with nothing but powder. It seoiua that Sam had mistrusted the reason of the first bad shot, although he had betrayed no signs of suspicion at tne time, and he load ed his gun with two charges of shot, know ing that one would be drawn out. ' There is a solemnity in the thought ofa recent death, which will associate itself with the very walls from whenco we are con scious that a soul has just taken its flight to eternity. To be n christian at all, in the scriptural sense, is a business of unwearied atlention and watchfulness, and labour; but to be a teacher, an oxanple, a sfleparel to a lock, rt- ouires tnioir fiirimnti lerer was saved by great exertion, when at me point ot perishing. The night of that day was to he nbserv ed, as is usual here, by a New Year's ball. Invitations hid been extended for many miles around, and a great gathering of the young, and gay, and though! less was ex pected. Extensive preparations had been made for an evening of merriment and glee, and merry hearts beat quickly in anticipa tiMiof the pleasures of the scene. Nuno was happier in the thought of coming joy than Miss , who took her seat in the sleigh, by the side of her partner fot the evening, ana set out for a ride of some twenty miles, to join th dan.;c. She was young and gay, and her charms of youth and beauty never were lovelier than when dressed for that New Year's ball. Of course tot thinly clad for the .-easnn, and cspetially for that dreadful day, she had not gone tar before she complained of being cold, very cold; but their anxiety to reach the end of their rids in time to be present at the open ing of the i ince, induced them to hurry on wards without stopping by the way. Not long alter thus complaining, she said that he felt perfectly comfortable, wne now quite warm, and that there was no necessi ty of delay on her account.

There is another who fancies that wearing silver mounted spectacles cures the rheu matismanother who thinks that a Russian beaver hat is an antitode against the gout another who imagines th it wearing glszed leather pantaloons is a preventative of sore eyes another, again, who believes that a low collared cout is more effectual than bear's greste in improving the growth ol hair but the most strings conceit of a!! is entertained by a gentleman down town, who wears brick-colored kid gloves for the preservation of his teeth. Of what whims, freaks and phantasies are inonV minds made up A". O. Pfayune. Oniaht or Sla.nduk I here is but one origin of Slander, and that is' in the tea- tattung and idle, silly and mischievous chit- chat, ot both men and women. We never heard ol a slander yet, that could not be traced back to some poor, loafing set of de vils, who hang srouud each other J'ke black snakes in Ihe sun, to tninglo their poison together; or else to some tea-ptrty, made up of scandal-dealing, characier-caiivassini old maids and old women. Miss Somebody drops a word without thought, -Miss -iouie-body else adds to it. and repeats it without thinking, and Mrs. Dont-know who, gene rally shapes the version to her own tongue without knowing it. How much miscnief grows out of a mere harmless word ? The tongue is an unruly member, and needs bri dling. As a specimen of the origin of slander wo copy the remarks of somebody, not a little versed in its history, Mother Jasper told me that she heard Great wood's wife say that John Hardston's aunt mentioned to her that Mrs. Lustv was present when the widow llsrkenion said that Bu rUII's cousin thought Ensign Doo- irit-i uciioveu mat oiu iuiss uxiey d that rtsm Trifle's belter half had Livi or Alt Editor Say what we wilf, th life ot'sn Editor conscious of a genu-iuy whose home is above the storm, is bat tissue ot thankess, hopeless, mfsernblet hours From d.y to d-V, he must em hi breid, by meeting in vulgar strife with the; world, and hearing in silent bitterness tlier scorn, the jest, the calumny, and the mock' ery of 'ere ttures beneath all name Like a camel, he must wend his weary way over" a' mental desert,' and toil for creatures, that goad him at every step with hearties ribaldry Public sentiment is a tread-milf and he is the convict that must keep it . in motion.' These thing are enonirk in, moke spirit bend like a reed, and we have often thought of them with unfathomable agony, that drove us well nigh to madness. Uut we can bare on while our brethren of finer sensibilities are fainting around us. Our pillow was never made of down tho winds of heaven visited our cheek rnmrhlv in childhood our sinows were turned to iron by toil, and cold and storm and w feel, that we can mingle in the conflict of man with man, and sustain ourselves with. out defeat or disgrace.- The end has sot yet come llartfird Review.
