I no Mest had not ended when these almost Rwrnatural demonstrations begun bled multitude, a bolt of Heaven's thun der rent the flag and shivered the pole. Its echoes had hardly died away, when an express arrived informing the General of the death of a beloved son. lTro.n llin front nf ihp Pnrtipn nf tlio Capitol above the pillars which sustain tfT i 1 1 11 u, is a Bxaxuetoi Justice lormeny 1101a ing in her right hand a scroll, labelled "Constitution." Prior to the inaugur ation of General Harrison, the right arm of ihe statue broke, and with the scroll of the AJonstitution, fell to her feet, where it now lies. Over the chair of the President of the Senate, is a Spread Eagle which held in his beak a label inscribed with the words "77 Plurihux Umnn." This label. bearing the motto of our Union, about the same time fell from its position, and has never been replaced. About the same time, a picture of Pre sident TTarrisnn in an clef nnt frame, had been procured and hung up with great .1 t -l r care in me uongress LiiDrary. une eve ning, when all persons had retired ex cept two gentlemen therein employed, when them was nothing to nroduce a shake or a jar, it fell from its position, the frame was dashed in many pieces, and the picture left standing against the wall of the room. "While President Harrison was on his way to the City of Washington, the Bank of the United States, which for years had been the source of more mor al if not nhvsical disease, than Pandora's : : ' . , , box ol oln, stopped payment ior xne last time, sinking under the weigtu oi uie corruptions it had practiced in a battle with General Jackson to secure power to the Whig Party snd a new charter to itself. The Banks in Baltimore follow ed the example, almost at the moment of his arrival in that City. In the City of Washington, fire after firo hv ni'irht nnd bv dav. had kept the people in constant agitation; storms of unusual violence ravageu cuy anu cuuu- nrnrpprlnd. . deliberately and systemati cally, under the lead of Mr. Clay, to fal sify every promise they nau mauc anu reverse in their acts and professions they had uttered. They had promised to reduce the pub lic expenditures and pay off the Public Debt. Instead of doing so, they enlarged the expenditures, increased the Debt, crave away the land money, laid addi tional butherns on the people, and in a few months after their accession to pow er, had destroyed the credit of the go pfffirtuallv that not a dollar could be borrowed; its obligations were dishonored and protested, and multitudes of public creditors remained unpaid. They passed a Bankrupt Law so odi ous to the people that they were obliged to repeal it themselves, not however, un til nfterroiVwiw of debt hud been wiped out as with a sponge. AiitiP.ii.rh ihpv had rcDudiatcd a Bank in the contest, they passed a Bill estab lishing one, maintaining that it was the ino,!; Wliinr measure, and denounced Mr M'vlpr !is a renegade and a traitor, because he refused to falsify the profes sionsof his whole life by affixing his approval to the Act. Instead of the revival of confidence and the increase of wages predicted and promised as the immediate result of Whiff measures, whatever of confidence was left, disappeared, wages tell sua thp. pnnntrv was strewed with the ruins of broken banks, and never, since the adoption of the Constitution, was commerce so prostrate and labor so ill requited. . Crimes unprecedented in numuei anu unequalled in atrocity, filled every sec tion of our country wmw iiunwa, i. . tin"1 a hardened barbarity in their details, onfy to be exceeded in the bosoms of demons from the burning pit. President Tyler had been the willing associate and beneficiary of the profli- eale band who sought power oy me cuu- knocked the latter down and stamped upon his head and breast with such fe rocity as to deprive him of life: Yet the mortal injury of one of their principal men, did not stop the proceedings of the assembled crowd. , The Sabbath witnessed a military pa rade attended by Henri Clay, with ban A nml music T)lavinff march in" with shouts through the streets ot New Orleans, drowning with their noise the trumpet of the Gospel, and compel ling worshiping congregations to break up and disperse. , , Tm .M.tU.nihaUn witnessed the same Whiff leader arriving at Mobile amid the shouts ol a congregaieu inunnuuu, they suoposcd the day was mane ior mo worship of a man rather than 'thp ado ration of their Maker. The crush of the Clay Club House t:i,v,,i hv whioh one man lost n jviiuuwuui his life and many were maimed, did not strike the devotees of that profligate politician, as an evidence mat iiwvtn frowned on the rebuilders of the Coon Temples. But what considerate, what religious, what moral man, can look back on these extraordinary events, and reflect on the thevnresent, with- out being impressed with the belief, that there is some connection between the ,,0,1 tn npmriiC! nower m 1840, now asrain put in requisition, and the ja- tality which seems to pursue mo -um... istration it brought into existence. The falsehoods, follies, and debaucheries then adopted, seem to have demoralized na ture itself, hnd made their authors their Tim actors m those scenes have heenAappointed to punish friends that voted for Harrison, such ser vile tools of party, that they are oppo sing tho annexation of Texas. I sin cerely hope friends you will examine this Texas question well, and shake off the party shackles with which you are bound, and stand by the best interests of your own country. If you will only look around and see 'who opposes the annexation of Texas, you will find it is the old Federal party and abolitionists Iton'iRiana. I have always been of opinion that there was a party in our country that opposed all its best interests, and I find on exam nation, that that party is now allied with the whig party, I am therefore determin ed to leave'them, and I entreat you to go and do so likewise, and listen to the voice of a HARRISON MAN IN 1810.

August 13, 1844.5 To the Editor of the Jefl'ersonian: SinThrough the columns of your paper, I wish to address a few remarks o some of my old Republican Inends hat voted for General Harrison in 1810. ome questions of vital importance to mr country are to be settled m the ap proaching, contest, that was not then be fore the public, and others of vast im- . . . ortance to the South. The whig party avc changed their ground, and arc lead ing us on, imperceptibly by degrees, to fix a series of measures on our govern ment that will result in the subversion of our liberties. General Harrison declar p.l. ihnt a National Bank should never bo established, until wo had fairly tried by experiment, that the operations of frovernment could not be managed with- L .. . . , . .1 out it, and until that was cicariy anew taincd.he said ho considored itunconsti- and on the Tariff, he declared Z. We copy from the Globe Capt. Jack's certificate, dated 7th December, 1819, which nails to the counter, the base and false charge of Gov. Polk's grandfather being a tory, and which will stamp with infamy such of the vile whig journals as have been giving it publicity. Wc have never heard the charge irom an in dividual who had any regard for his standing in society, but from that class who arc always trying to bring others doivn to their own mean level. This fact appears in Captain Jack's certificate, to be found at page 858, vol. 2, of the Archives, and wc here tran scribe it: 'CAPT. JACK'S CERTIFICATE. .
