We have Now Orleans dates to the 17th.
The political intelligence is cheering indeed
for the friends, of Harrison. The victory is
signal and complete.
This is indeed a brilliant triumph, especially
----- . i ' I
when wo remamber that atthe last Presiden
tial election Lousiana gave her electoral vote
:o Mr. Van Buren. " NO ONE HERE,"
avs a New Orleans letter of the -17th instant,
BER." But to the details.
White's (Whig) majority in the First Dis-
net is 2045.
Dawson's (Van Buren) in the second is thir
.en votes. Morgan received 1920. Dawson
In the the Third District, Moore's (Whig)
majoritv. 285 three parishes to hear from.
TheN.'O. Bulletin of the 17th, says: "A
letter was received in town)'esterday, we un
derstand, from the Parish Judge of Ouachita,
;nd Union. The correction of the error makes
very much in favor of the Whig candidate;
Mid his election is now considered certain.
The Legislature will consist of 35 or 36
Whigs to 31 or 32 Locos. Eight Whigs in the
Senate. Majority in joint ballot, from 4 to 6
sufficient to elect a Whig U. S Senator. It will
thus be seen our friends have swept the board.
We repeat, all hail louisiaxa!
From the Ohio Republican.
I&icliarci iTT. JoStisson.
The present Vice President R., M. John
son, is a man with whom we Have some ac
quaintance. Some of our Harrison editors
have said a few hard things about Col. Rich
ard JIT. Johnson, without knowing that they
were unintentionally slandering one of the bra
vest soldiers of the last war, and one of the rir
anest friends that ever Gen. Harrison had the
Jionor of possessing. We know them both in
xiniatlr, and we speak by authority when .we
sav there is nothing but the most kindly feelings
entertained in the breasts of these honorable
and distinguished men, toward each other.
Richard M. Johnson has been kicked to one
side, by his Van Buren friends, but that makes
no difference to us. We mean to tell a tale, the
incidents of which we can prove by one of the
.most high minded and respectable men of Cin
cinnati. Elam P. Langdon, is the man we -allude i
to, and although there are some hundred of
others upon whose testimony we might rely, we

one of fancy. !
On a certain occasion, not far from the dog
.days of 1835, it was rumored among some of
us Jackson men of Cincinnati, that Dick John
son, as every body familiarly called him, was
about to perpetrate a slump speech in Coving
ton, which, as we presume all our readers know,
lies exactly opposite to Cincinnati, in the State
of Kentucky, a State too well known in history
ajud tradition to require our feeble attempts to
eulogize. Well we crossed the river in the ferry
boat, went to the hall where Dick Johnson was to
hold forth", shook him cordially by the hand, and
then sat down, along with Elam P. Langdon
to hear his speech.
Stump- speeches in Kentucky- are not pre
cisely like those in Ohio. It is somewhat dif
ficult for a Kentucky stump orator, when he
-commences his speech to guess with much
exactness as to its duration or peroration. The
Kentuckians dislike to be humbugged, and the
very frequently ask a stump orator, even in the
very height and flow of his elequence, a ques
tion that throws him out of his own prescribed
track. Such was the case with our friend Col.
J jhnson.
He began a dissertation on matters and
things in general and Democracy in particular.
He was moving on as smoothly as a square rig
gea ung, with all tier canvass
when somebody in the crowd yelled out.
" Were -ou at the battle of the Thames ?"
" J was, and what of it V
" Are you the hero of that battle ?"
" Thai's a very singular question to be put
to me by any gentleman that has read the his
tory of the last war. My brother James and
mseif and the Colonel dashed a tear from
lus eye when he pronounced the name of his
departed brother my brother James and my
self raised a regiment of mounted riflemen
and joined General Harrison on the Maumee.
We ai- ked him for the poxt of danger, the
yerv moment it could he obtained, and lie told
If it in possible, and it would not conflict
. .-,1 .i ' , ' - r . i i
with the general operations of the troops, he
would grant it to us cheerfully. Vn were
shortly on the trail of Proctor. We caught
hfn on the Thames. Our mounted regiment;
as u matter of course, was in the advance, and
when we described theonemy, my brother awl
jfivself rode up to General Harrison and .re
minded him .of his promise."

duty is before vou.. One
half of your regiment will charge through the
British regulars, mid the other half will, simul
taneously commence an attaelon Tecumaeh's
Indians in the swamp," v .
So saidthe General Jamqs, and
a braver and a belter man never lived,-charged
through the British, with one half of the battal
lion, while I, with the other half, undertook to
rouse up the Indians in the swamp. They were
not hard to rouse up, for Tecumseh, a man
transcendency superior to Proctor, in point of
real bravery, as 'Hyperion to a Satyr had deter
mined to make that his best and most conclusive
baule ground. We met them and fought them
hen they learnt that Proctor's British reg
ulars had been demolished, by my brother James
they hegan to retire. At this moment by body
had been perforated by live bullets, and my
horse could only be kept on 'his legs by the
greatest exertions of my bridle hand. In en
deavoring to make him leap over a log in the
swamp, he fell and died, with two more balls
in his carcase than there were in my own. A
tali, good looking Indian approached me, with
his tomahawk ready for a throw. My horse
Jay in a position that did not permit me lo be
exactly dismounted. I pulled out a loaded pis
tol from my holsters and shot him.
They say it was Tecumseh I shot. I care not,
and I know not. I would have shot the best
Indian that ever breathed, under such circum
stances without inquiring his name or asking
the ages of his children.
When the Colonel reached this point there
was a deafening roar of applause. A simpleton
present, who did not know the true calibre of
the man he was about to interrogate, and who
wished to make himself popular among the en
emies of Harrisor, exclaimed in a. stentorian
" Where was Gcnerl Harrison then V
The Colonel gave a calm survey of the crowd
unlil he singled outthe'facc of thequurist. Look
ing him dead in the eye, as the Kentuckians
say, anu drawing nimseli to Ms utmost Height,
with his eye dilated, and a countenance that
plainly showed that there was no hypocrisy in
what he was about to say, he replied in -tones
as calm, but as portentious as the incipient rum
blings that precede a volcanic eruption
" He was in the very spot where the Common-'
der-in chief ought to have been. He was in the
spot where his duly called him. He was amidst
the whizzing of rijh bullets, overlooking the move
ments of our mounted men ready to charge over
the dead bodies of my brother and myself, had
wc proved unfortunate in the onset, in order to a
venge us. No one must attempt to tickle my fan
cy by intimating in my presence, thai General
Harrison is a coward!"
There was a pause and then there was a
silence, so profound, so indescribable that it was
painful. In that vast crowd, for the space of
one minute and that is a long dreary lapse of
! time, to men who are listening to a slump speech
the ticking of a watch might have bean heard
as horribly loud as it has grated on our ear in
the sombre chambre of the dving and the dead.

Public Opinion from whose decision there
appeal, has been so often and so loudly manifested
NIVJORSAL PILLS, that it is not surprising there
should be found in almost every city, town, and
village in the United Statos, persons so depraved
at heart, and so utterly devoid of the principal of
moral rectitude, as to manufacture a spurious arti
cle, and palm it off on the unsuspecting public as
the genuine medicine, from the result of which so
many happy results have been accrued to humani
ty. It is painful to think that an inestimable good
should be product of direct and immediate evil
but so it is.
