Nowlin lecher. Quigley Camp amp Sheldon. That Thomas Jefferson had appointed him governor of the territory of Indiana when that territory was first organized. The fact is and history will prove it that Indiana was organized As a territory during the session of Congress of 1799 and 1800, which was during the administration of John Adams of Black cockade memory and that or. Adams gave Gen. Harrison the appointment of governor in May 180p,. Gen. Harrison at the time of Recd Ying this appointment was a Delegate in Congress from the North Wester territory and during the session whenever Opportunity offered As far As is in his Power supported the admin is ration in All its Strong party measures and As John Adams at that period was not the Man to give an appointment even of this importance to a Democrat it follows of course that Ili Rison was As John Randolph said a supporter of the alien and sedition Law and a Friend and supporter of the Black cockade administration. In 1826, during the administration j. Q. Adams Gen. Harrison was a Ember of Congress from Ohio and Ted on All occasions with the friends ofor. Adams on the famous Panama question and others of like character and towards the close of or. Babbling worlds applause called Fame properly so speaking rot even doctor Franklin the master Genius of the age in which he lived. And if the whole Power of his Gigantic mind had been poured into the columns of his newspaper the result would have been he same he would have lived and died like other editors and his name been forgotten. Editors of newspapers write for effect and not for Fame. Their efforts Are directed to the passing events of the Day. As the arguments teem from their pens they Are caught up and wielded by Busy politicians from the giant whose influence controls the destinies of a nation Down to a Mere demagogue who Prates upon an election ground they answer the end for which they were designed and sink As John Quincy Adams would say into the great receptacle of things lost upon Earth or they write for the gratification and amusement of their patrons. Their readers laugh alike at their wit and their Folly Are interested for the time with the bursts of Genius or the display of learning which they occasionally put Forth Are edified with the deep and wide spreading knowledge of the affairs of the world which adorn their co at a time when the political opponents of or. Van Buren Are doing their utmost to Traduce and misrepresent his character and motives it May perhaps be permitted to a Friend to re a simple incident in his private illustrative of his character As a it was related to me a few months since and i give it As nearly As possible in the words of the narrator a when i first left my Home a said he a to push my Fortune in the world the legislative Assembly cannot with i was in moderate circumstances without Manifest injustice to one of the 1 out friends to Aid me and started for districts proceed to assign the judges Washington in Hope of procuring to the different districts As the clerk of said courts cannot be appointed in the absence of the judge thereof a therefore be it resolved by the legislative Assembly of the territory of Wisconsin that his excellency the governor be requested to inform judge Frazier that his presence is required in the territory previous to the termination of the present session of said Assembly or that he forthwith inform the governor that he has resigned that the vacancy May be filled. Resolved that our Delegate to Congress be instructed to use his Best endeavours to obtain the passage of a Law requiring the judges of the supreme court of this territory to reside in their respective districts As by the aforesaid act of Congress they Are not even obliged to remain within the limits of the territory. On motion of or.

The stage coach in which i was a passenger overturned within a few Miles of that City by which Accident my left Arm and two of my ribs were broken. The remaining passengers although uninjured seemed More anxious to extricate their baggage and get on to the City than to Render me any assistance. To this there was one exception. A gentleman who had been a fellow passenger but for a few Miles and to whom i was an entire stranger sympathised in my misfortune. Finding that i had no acquaintances in Washington before proceeding to his own lodgings he procured a comfortable room for me in a private boarding House and despatched a servant for a surgeon. Had i been a brother he could not have treated me with More kindness and before leaving he tendered me any pecuniary assistance i might need. That Man was Martin Van Buren then just elected vice president of the United states and for two tedious months during which i was confined to my room attentions were in remitted. Although harrass de and surrounded by difficulties an objects of constant attack upon the floor of the Senate scarcely a Day passed in which he did not find time to visit and encourage me. Immediately on my recovery i left Washington and have not seen or. Van Buren since but be he magician or not he will receive my vote for the Post office department.

The Monarch surprised at his presence of mind immediately granted the request. Rules for using the a the Tongue is called in the Bible an uni ily member. Our own experience accords perfectly with the statement Aud observations upon the tongues of others hate satisfied us of the evil. We think the pc towing rules if carefully followed will be found of great use in taming that thnh has not yet been perfectly tamed. 1. Never use your Tongue in speaking any thing but truth. The god of truth who made the Tongue did not intend it for any other use. It will not work Well in falsehood it will run into such inconsistencies to detect itself. To use this Organ for publishing falsehood is As incongruous As the use of the Eye for hearing or the ear for smelling. 2. Do not use your Tongue too much it is a kind of waste Gate to let off Tho thoughts As they collect and expand the mind but if the waste Gate is always open the water will soon run shallow. Many people use their tongues too much. Shut the Gate and let the streams of thought flow in till the mind is full and then you May let off with some effect. 3.

Never put your Tongue in motion is this fiction or is it fact look while your respondent has his in Moback to the Stream of history upon the ton. I he two streams meet and the vanquished gels of time and you will a action be so great that you will both behold its verification. You will see Ibe spatter yours ves.

Surplus English editor thus comments on the debates in our Congress relative to the a surplus a a National dilemma. While most of the nations of the old world Are overburdened with debts and some of them hard put to it to make both ends meet the americans seem sadly puzzled to know what to do with their surplus Revenue. The matter has been hotly discussed in Congress and various plans have been submitted for its appropriation Amon which Are the following a to make purchases in the various state stocks to expend it in Tho Purchase of lands to dispose of it in rail roads and steam carriages or to spend it in fortifications. One Hon. Senator or. King of Georgia thought the question so embarrassing and so pregnant with evil that he is reported to have uttered the following patriotic wish during the debate a a would to god a said he a fifty millions of the Public treasure would to thrown into the Crater of Vesuvius or sunk in the Ocean unless we could devise Means to get rid of it that would not fix a permanent and growing curse upon the country a what a miserable people to have fifty millions of surplus Revenue dollars though they be and still worse not to know what to do with it a curious has discovered a very remarkable fact that the left hand is More sensible of heat or cold than the right in most persons. Thus when the hands of a person lying in bed and of exactly the same temperature were plunged each in a separate vessel of hot water the left hand was believed by the person to be in the the Genius and Talent of the historian the poet and the philosopher but where is to be found a single memento of the achievements the Talent or the usefulness of an editor no where unless it be in the edict of Stone despot who muzzled the press to protect the Crown that bedecked his silly and ambitious head. Yet you will find Ever since the Art of printing has been known the press denominated the great lever of Public opinion. Yes the press is the great lever by which the political world is moved but without a conductor it would be As useless As the wild by Cephaus before he was tamed by Alexander and taught to Bear with Pride his exalted Burthen amid the Din of Battle and Over Crim soned Fields of blood and Slaughter.
