AVe are up! Don'tyou hear the Whig thunder?
We come with a hearty huzza !
What foe ever heard, without terror,
The war cry of old Chippewa?
Chorus The war cry, &c.
From Queenstown, where nobly he battled,
Niag'ni, where gory he lay,
The people re-echo the thunder,
And cather for old Chippeiva.
Prom Mexico's snowy sierras,
Her vales where they bask in the day,
Comes the voice of his valor and virtue.
The glory of Old Chippewa.
North, South, East and West, it arises,
Xo faction that thunder can stay ;
It hails with the blessings of freemen,
Their champion and choice Chippewa.
His breast has been plowed by the British,
And forty campaigns make him gray ;
But we'll wreath his high brow with a laurel,
And glory in old Chippewa.
When Mexico's millions were offered,
From his country to win him astray ;
44 Tho1 poor, ril love, live, and die by her !"
So answered our old Chippewa.

Thus the feathers will fly from the Locos,
When they come across old Chippewa.

A fall save when riddled with bullets
Ne'er happens to old Chippewa.
With the high soul of honor to nerve him,
And good soup his stomach to stay,
Come Mexicans, British, or Locos
They're nothing to Old Chippewa.
The Locos selected a leader.
But their managing Masters said nat;
So they straw-stufFd the coat of a hero,
And set it 'gainst Old Chippewa. ,
Poor fellows! they're tired of their fetters,
And shrink from the trick with dismay;
All true-hearted Democrats spurn it
And rally round Old Chippewa.

But Scott likes the ore of the Keystone :
He used it at old Chippewa.

Their glad shouts will soon cleave the wilkin,

Camp Meeting Anecdote.
At a campmeeting, a number of ladies
continued standing on the benches not-
with standing frequent hints from the

rose and said:

No Use for Trowsers.
On the morning of the well-remembered
meteoric shower in 1833, Old Pey
ton Roberts, who
intended making -an
early start to his work, got up in the midst ,
of the display. On going to his door, he ;
saw with amazement, the sky lighted up
with the falling meteors, and he concluded
at once that the day of judgment had
come. He stood for a moment gazing in
speechless terror at the scene, and then ;
! ... . . I
with a yell ot horror sprung out ot the
door into the yard, right in the midst of ,
the falling stars, and here, in his efforts
to dodge them, he commenced a series of
ground and lofty tumbling, that would
have done honor to a tight rope dancer.
His wife being awakened in the meantime,
and seeing old Peyton jumping and slop
ping about the yard, called out to him
to know 'what in the name of sense he
was doin' out thai daucin' around without
; his clothes on.' But Peyton heard not
j the judgment, and the long and black ac-
i count he would have to settle made him
heedless of all terrestrial things, aud his
wife by this time becoming alarmed at
his strange behaviour, sprang out of bed,
and runniug to the door, shrieked out at
the top of her lungs

Passages in Gen. Scott's History
The libellers of Henry Clay have al
ready commenced libelling WINFELD
SCOTT. We present below ccrtainacs,
which will serve to show what is the man
whom Locofocos arc calumniating :
In 1834, when South Carolina was
threatening the dissolution of the I
nion, and Gen. Jackson was threatening
t to hang those of her citizens who would
not submit to the collection of duties at
Charleston, Gen. Scott was selected

amicably settled. His conduct on that
occasion, won, as many will remember,
the highest encomiums from all classes of
the American people. On his return, the
citizens oi Albany and the legislature ol
New York tendered him a public supper,
which was accepted. Gov. Marcy, then

the Presidency, presided. The following
are among the regular toasts on the oc-

(a Democrat,) and another at Holly

say, ought to be, and we doubt not will
be, satisfactory not only to all Whig3 but
to every man in the country.
