BUTLER is from O Neil's Gazette LEWIS C ASS, the candidate for the Pi es- idency, is a citizen of the young, enter- prising, prosperous and democratic state of Michigan. His history, as a part of that ofthe country itself, is familiar and endeared to every American. Born, in 1782, at Exter, New Hampshire, the son of a gallant and distinguished soldier of est evidence of his wide spread popularity may be found in the fact that without any exertion on the part of him or his friends, and spontaneously as it wen-, he received hi the Baltimore Convention of 1844, one hundred and twenty-three votes, and but for the compromise on Mr. Polk, would have received the nomination on that oc- casion. No one was more active or earnest in his efforts to secure the elec- tion of Mr. Polk, than was Gen Cass, and undoubtedly the warm support received by him in the western s aies, was greatly owing to those exertions. On thJ 4th of March, 1845 Gen. Cass took his scat in the U. S. Senate, as Sen- ator from. Michigan. His course and action since that time is well known to the American people. One of the leading spirits of that distinguished body, promi- nent as an advocate and supporter of all the great measures of the democratic par- the revolution, he emigrated at the age of of the independent treasury, the 17 to Marietta, in the then north western tariff of 184Gi tnc vigorous prosecution tariff of 184Gi tnc vigorous prosecution territory, which contained about of tllo Mexican in every instance her of legislature, and drafted ]lim lo democracy, which renders him so objections! to, arid so frequent an ob- DAN1KLDOBBS, Attorney and Counsellor at Law, and Matter in Chancery, Lake Mills, Jefferson county, Wis.

He urged the invasion tf Canada, comman- ded the advanced detac'hinent, and was the first man to land in the enemy's country. He drove the British troops from their position on the river Aux Canards, near Detroit, and here was shed the first blood ofthe war. He participa- ted in all the events of the war on that frontier, and was a determined opponent of ill's disgraceful surrender of Gen. Hull at Detroit. It occurred during a brief absence on his part. On Col.Cass return- ing, when ordered to deliver up his sword on that occasion, stung with mortification, he indignantly shivered it to pieces, and threw it to the earth, refusing to surren- der it to the enemy. He was a Brigadier General in the army with Gen. Harrison, bore a leading and distinguished part in the defeat of the British at the battle of the Thames, and was highly commeii Jed in the official reports c f Gen. Harri- son.

His grandfather was a native of Ireland, but emigrated to America about the middle of the last century, and settled in Penn- sylvania.

The patriotism ofthe sire and his children became so celebra- ted that Washington once gave, as a Butlers and their five sons." LaFayette was accustomed to say I wanted a thing well done, I ordered a Butler to do it." The subject of the biography was the second son of Percival Butler, the fourth in order of these five revolutionary broth- ers. William O. Butler had just finish- ed his collegiate course, and was prepar ing to study law, when the war of 1812 broke out! The surrender of Detroit aroused the patriotism of every Ameri can, especially of the sons of Kentucky; and a large force immediately volunteer- ed to march on to Canada and chastise the enemy.

No historian has as yet justice to tlie privation en- dured by these brave Kentuckians. Hut- by President Madison, Governor ofMich- ler was present at both the actions on the igan. The ability and faithfulness with Raisin, and on each occasion displayed which be performed this duty is signally evinced in the fact of his having been seven times nominated to the office by four successive Presidents, and seven times unanimously confirmed by the Sen- ate, without a single representation against him from the people over whom he presided His connection with the Indians was one of great peril and respon- sibility, and dining that time he formed twenty-one treaties with them, and ex- tinguished their title to nearly one hun- dred millions of acres, and this upon terms so just and satisfactory that no complaint was ever made by the Indians South, West ond North every lupon the subject. .iioiiuay, and Friday, at 7o clock, A.
