Harrison the Battle of Tippecanoe he often can flied perh8pa,Inora extent Ivy than any other action fought in the Western country it the result was that All the charges made against the general were fully disproved and the More the subject was investigated the More Consi Cious shone the Merit of the commander. The legislature of Kentucky passed the following Resolution which is entitled Ioas much respect and perhaps h Little More than i he opinion of the est a Landerer in the ranks of Van sure ism Quot resolved hat in the Inte Cam of it sign Tigani it the indians on the Wabash governor William h. Harrison , in the opinion of this legislature behaved like h hero a Patriot and a general and that for hi9 Cool deliver a Etc skillful and Gallant conduct in the late Battle of Tippecanoe he Well a serves the warmest thanks of the in 1812 Small parties of indians by Tecumseh began to murder the inhibit ants upon the frontiers of in Liattia Illinois and Ohio. Gov nor Harrison with a promptness that did Liim immortal Honor pressed upon the War department the necessity of protecting the Frontier and asked permission to raise a corps of mounted men to pursue and chastise them. Tills kind of Force was a favorite one with him Long before col Onel Johnson Ever commanded a re to Anent of Tjie kind unhappily for the wet the then Secretary of War declined giving the required permission and the a pred Hions of attic Savages con Liiro a. This was the first of those of the War department we isl wet of will and Talent threw the a Milit iry operations of the West into disorder. It understood that general aim Strong has a work in press of n ten Quot ency to vindicate him Seurat the expense of the army. We Pentuic to assert that he will regret the hour he ventured upon so rash an Experiment since to his want of Irmi ies Geol graphical information and his a Cien by in All that makes a military Man May justly be attributed much of the Nett rings of tie of the. Western Coli try. Had general Arm trl Rong profited by the Able letter of a neral a Rivion written in March 1314, one half of the calamity with which i to their Frontier was Vii led might easily have been prevented. Those who Are car inuit know the character and a policy of t be Liidi Tea of that part of the country at thai Clay will timid themselves Tilly repaid their Trou if in pert King that very Clear and accurate durum edit. It has Ever been consider d an Able and Solis factory product Iii and one 111 much beyond any thing Ivor. Van Muren or general Jackson could prepare As i a to be conceived. Mihic Gen.

While this Force was being raised the Cri Tiow a i Lutton Fugen. Hull began to be known and the people of Kentucky were in Truiti a i amp tic in their Utterm Inalien to have a ineral Harrison in command of their militia. But some difficulty occurring by the rules and regulations of a he army Wirich prevented the a com it Lish Merit of their wishes a meeting of the Legi Lalure was held at which Henry Clay governor Shelby and h judge Tudd Wai present. At this meeting it was resolved although general Harrison waa not a citizen of Kentucky and therefore not entitled to take command of her militia still Bat he Bould receive n Brevet commission Ornu or Lenerel Mill then be a Lugiori ted in us command of the Copen the Field.

Hgt a the Cicinnati whig emigration. It is no wonder that Michigan should hold of her head and Flash her eyes and look Thunder at Uncle Sam or shake her impotent Little fist like braggart As she is under Ohio s nose when we consider How her ample territory is filling up with All sorts of human beings. It is calculated that to addition of fifty thousand will be made to her population during the present year. This addition will make her quite respectable in Point of number and she will soon have More tongues and words on the floor of Congress than some of the other states who Are old enough to be her grandmother. What a restless race of beings we belong to. We can never keep quiet but like Cornels must be playing hither and Yon through the regions of space. Indeed i would seem that the present generation of men mean to disprove he speculations which used in the old time to be indulged in in regard to the nature of Man. 7aen, it was said that this was a Strong tie which Botma human beings to their native places nolo it seems that there is it centrifugal Power at work throw ing men off irom the spots on which they Are born and giving them a motion which refiners them unsettled forever afterwards. Look at he Yan Kee. Iia tion for instance there the tide of population swells and annually overflows new England s boundaries like he Nile fertilizing whenever it goes their the spirit of emigration separates and Breaks up As Many families h3 the celebrated code of conscription of Napoleon did in France. A father has half a dozen sons and he anticipates the time when he shall see them Sui july fixed around him the Solace of his declining years. As soon is the eldest has attained his majority he gels a notion in his head that he tan belter his temporal condition by a removal of his Lerson to some of the gardens of the hesperides in the West. A Oft lie starts far a Over the Hills and faraway the old my mourns Hii its and reposes his Hopes on some of his Ophir sons who Are springing up to he moving mama a infected his family and one by one his boys go of from him and in his old age he finds his House deserted and scarce one of his blood left o shed a tear on his grave. That those who emigrate Westward better their Condit Iuit we think in the general is undeniable. 13ut to think of the Sev end lies and bleeding heart which the spirit of emigration occasions is enough la to make one regret that the tic which binds a Man to the place of his birth is not sufficiently Strong to keep him there forever. We dont wonder that europeans should he anxious to leave therr Early Homes where their Hopes of the honors and comfor s of life Are blasted by a discriminating Ranies for a land which smiles i h Promise far beyond the Blue wave. The desire to be comfor ahle of Ilse is sufficient to induce them to bid Adieu to their native land forever but we have frequent in been puzzled to account for the fad that men who Are settled where peace and plenty Wear continual smiles Are willing to forego the delights around them merely to satisfy a restless curiosity and Enterprise can never be know that avarice is Strong but it is singular that sensible men should be willing to sacrifice every other feel log of their natures to its insatiable cravings. From the. Livet Pooi courier. A Climax is fast approaching to the struggle Between despotic and constitutional principles on the continent of Europe the opposing Clouds Are daily gathering weight and Black Neis and whether hey Are eventual in to burst in Heausle collisions and Deletti Europe with War of to averted by hmm Happy event Jet concealed in the Boom or Lut Ritj u a problem upon which not Tonij be attention of statesmen Bot of u great portion of the pubic of thu other it Tea is at present deeply axed. An impetus has been Given to the settlement of his question by a recent Deci Llott of the French Bember of of Putibet. On Tbs moving of Hie and Dreis a which Leemes purpose to to Shan Allai Ion to Russia and Selend m. De Mommy proposed an upend meat hoping for a Quot Retto Tauoa of be balance of Europe and at the first pledge Quot the preservation of the ancient nationality of Poland at Conie crated by existing treaties the amendment was adopted by an overwhelming majority. That even will of Coune not produce any result upon the Constitution of the French Cabinet inasmuch As it involved no Defin Ite obligation As to present policy and the ministers them Sylvei did not think proper to vote against the amendment. Still it is pregnant with Means if. It shows that the scoundrel speech of the russian despot hat not struck unheeded upon the ear of France. It shows that As Russia fills up the cup of her iniquity she at the same time has the n s the deliverance of Poland. In All state affairs a certain Progress Bafs the Way to an honorable Retreat. Nicholas there is reasons to believe has gone too far to recede and were it not so his Blind bigotry and Over when ring ambition would still hurry him on. What then is to be done France is interested in checking russian influence in the Centre of Europe and she has another Bond of enmity in her sympathy with Poland which has manifested itself on his occasion not in the cold common places of an official document but in a spontaneous burst of indignant feeling. England is also interested in checking the encroachments of Russia in the cast and both Are but Points of de. Fence against one grand echeme of aggrandizement. Whether France will be prepared when the proper moment arrives to carry out her Resolution to its natural consequences a War for polish Independence and whether assuming this England will Dunsheath the sword in the same cause must depend upon us error considerations. But no such War will be Worth engaging if that does not contemplate in connexion with polish Independence a polish Heredi airy monarchy would Only As it has been already an Ope door for intestine feuds and foreign domination. A Consitt Dunal monarchy on a firm basis which must be that of hereditary succession would spread around it a moral atmosphere which would penetrate to the very Root and Centre of despotism and Dif use a gradual renovation Over the whole surface of society in that Quarter of Europe. Following Strikis g scene recurred the i an Lime lie lira end Ihu colonization in Are pleased to observe from the proceedings of the late annual meeting of the colonization society of this state held in he Hall of in the Capitol an excellent spirit pre Vailes on this subject.
