General Thomas Hinds. Ilesohedy That the distinguished services of the deceased in the many important sta tions which he has held in iffe public coun cils of the State and tho Nation, and on "the tented field," entitle his memory to our most cherished regard. That in the for mer, his course was ever marked by a firm r nd unflinching adherence to what he deem- H-l cot rcct principles and public good; while on lhe luiler, his courage and conduct justly rendered him "the astonishment of one army, nnd the admiration of the other. We believe he rests in undisturbed repose in a soil be has so gallantly defended. , licsolced, That in private life his mteg rity, candor, kindness and generosity, were as conspicuous, as hs public career was successful and glorious: In all the private relations of life its kindly charities and daily duties his course was such as be came a hero sud a gentleman.

John II. Duncan, Secretary. SLANDERS NAILED TO THE FLOOR Cincinnati, Aug. 12, 1840. UTij Dear Colonel- I enclose your speech as published in tho Chilhcothe Advertiser The report of your speech so far as you speak of General Harrison, has surely mis conceived you, I not only so think but have o ''said. The inference may be fairly drawn that you are not only. in doubt as re ,..j,i u..f ,unt uj i,... little respect for him as a commanding General. My personal regard for you in- luces me alona to call your attention to the, subject, and lurnish you an opportunity of correcting what I conceive to be an errone ous and garbled report of what you did say in Chillicothe on theOrh inst. ' From the enclosed remarks of Col. C. S. Todd, you will at once discover that you take issue and evidently differ. If consis tent with your feelings furnish me with your views on the subject. They will be published or not, as you may desire. Tru ly your friend, T. D. CARNEAL. Col. R. M. Johnson, V. P. j Mansfield, Ohio. y Mansfield, Aug. IS, 1S40. My Dear Sir Your favor has been re ceived in which you observed, that by my reported speech an inference may be drawn that I am not only in doubt as regards the courage of Gen. Harrison, but that I had but little respect for him as a commanding General. I am happy lo have this opportu nity of informing you that duripg my ser- vico'wiiii Gen . Harrison, I had no cause to'" doubt his courage, but to consider him a brave man, nnd 1 have always expressed ' myself to that effect; nor have I ever disap proved or censured any of his measures as commanding General in the pursuit ot Proc- . tor, or in the Battle of the Thames, every thing I saw met my entire approbation, nmt I. have never spoken of it in any other terms. In speaking of the battle of the Thames, and the part acted by my regi ment, I did not intend to increase the merit of that regiment, or diminish the merit claim-, ed by others, much less did I intend to im ply that Gen. Harrison, or Gov. Shelby, or any other officer, attached to tho army avoided duty nnd danger. Each bad bis part to act, and I should feel mvself dera ded to suppose that they did not perform their duty fearless of danger, nor have I ever doubted that these gallant offices were precisely where duty c..l!cd them. I regret that in such a battle where our country was victorious, there should be a controversy about the merits duo to the actors in that battleI claioi nothing abovo the most humble soldier.who performed bis duty rm that occasion, nor shall any earthly' consideration ever induce me knowingly to do injustice to the commanding offcerrGov ernor Shelby, or any other officer in that army. I have thus confined myself io general remarks, not knowing in what par ticular fact injustice is supposed to have been done to General Harrison. I shoud be glad to know what particular issue is made us to the facts in the reported speech, respecting which 1 had do agency. I shall feel no difficulty to Mate tacts as far as my own personal knowledge extends, and what I understood from others, and not to cen sure or criminate, but to state the truth as 'ar as I kn w or believe the facts. I ex pect to be in-your city on Sunday the 23d, n rny way home, and I shall be happy to see you. RH. M. JOHNSON. Maj. Tiros. Caune.il.

Keep it before the People, That Martin Van Buren opposed the warf lol:, and did all be could d to defeat the election of the patriotic Madison, thus show ing to the world his love of Federal doc trines and his hatred of Democracy. KEEP IT BEFORE THE PEOPLE, That at the time when the fleets of En?Iand plundered our ships, and -impressed our ... . . . . eamcn, the thoughts ot Martin Van Buren were still in favor of peace; thus showing the inherent cowardh-e of his nature and want f sympathy with his suffering fellow- citizens. KEEP IT BEFORE THE PEOPLE, That Martin 'Van Buren, in the Convention. to amend the Constitution of New York, mado a speech in f.vor of a property qual Jication, and urged in justification of exclu ding Revolutionary soldiers from the right of suffrage, 4hat it made no difference how unjust it might appear, as to the old vete rans who would all be dead in the course of fifteen years. KEEP IT BEFORE THE PEOPLE, That Martin Van Buren was in theame Convention the strenlious supporter of giv ing to NEGROES the right ot voting, pro videdthey held a sufficient amount ol proy erty to entitle them to exercise the right of suffrage. KEEP IT BEFORE THE PEOPLE, That Martin Van Buren holds the aristo cratic doctru e that property alone, not taf ent, or usefulness to society , qualifies a man to have a voice in the choice of his rulers. KEEP IT BEFORE THE PEOPLE, ; That the whole of the twenty-seven foreign monarchies (rom whom Van Buren askf direction how he shall administer the affairs of the Republic, approve of his principles and would rejoice, should he succeed in re ducing me people of the only free nation on , , , . ,iUwimiim degraded subjects. KEEP IT BEFORE THE PEOPLE, That Van Buren has confessed, in his last annual message, that twenty two of the de spotic Kings and Emperors of Europe ap proved fully of the Sub-Treasury scheme, by which three-fourths of the people's earn ings will be transferred to the pockets of the office-holders. ' : KEEP IT BEFORE THE PEOPLE, That Martin Van Buren is at this moment, to all intents and purposes, a monarch, wanting only the power to prevent the peo ple' from expressing their disapprobation of lit & lrtininlmiQ flrtiono 1413 livj"livii uv' iiij KEEP IT BEFORE THE PEOPLE, That he is now exerting his energies to ob tain this power by creating a standing army of two ii jnpred TnousAND men, to be used for the purpose of putting down "combina tions," or, in other words, "contentions," of the people, thereby violating the Constitu tion,, which guarantees to all citizens lhe
