The ninnncr in which tho character of this brave man has boon assailed from tho moment lie was announced by the people as an opposing candidate to Martin Van Buren, in a melancholy illustration of the bitterness of party spirit. No epithet has boon conceived too gro.-is to he em ployed against him. Ho has been charged by ignorant and reckless pnrtizms with the most loathsome crimes, w hich have not the least nhadow of truth, and denounced as an "arislo. crat," a "federalist" an "ignoramus" and a "coward." There has been a day when the man sufficiently fool hardy and unprincipled to utter such rr.-'icious libels-, would have received tho universal frown of an indignant nation ; and none would have been louder in the expression of that indignation than many of tho very men who now tcink at those who make those ungene rous and malicious attacks. Bearing their awn antidote with them as those cbulitiona of spleen manifestly do, in their own grossncfp, we have not thought it worth while to dignify llicin by a passing contradiction. But for the purpose of showing the utter recklcssncso of our Tory opponents, we have grouped together a few of the testimonials with which tho history of the country abounds, as to the character and services of Gen. Harrison. Tho following honorable testimony is from Robert Lytic, of Ohio, late member of Congress. The chief excellence of this extract consists in tho fact that it was uttered by a chement party politician toward an inllucntial opponent. Jt manifests a degree of liberality which, in these days, is worthy of all commendation. "It is true, that that gentleman (Gen. lluriison) nnd myself are nuw, as wo Itavc lor some time men op nosed to each other in somo of our views, perhaps u innst. :ia tu the nithlic men ond measures of tho i!nv: but wero wo as widely scperated n3 the pules.

Rather than roll the temples of that time-worn mid justly honored public servant of a single laurel, 1 lejula choose, in justice, anu grati tude to heap chaplcts on his bro:." Tho following ia an extract from a speech de livered March 12d, 1831, in the House of Rcpr. eentatives of tho United States, by Col. It M Johnson of Kentucky, on the Bill for the relief of J. C. Harrison, deceased. "Ono of the securities is Gen. W. II. Harrison and mIih is Hen. ? The son of one of tho shiners of the Declaration of Independence, who spent th? greater part of his largo ibrtuno in lcdccming tho plcuge lie turn gavo 01 ms luriunr, mu mm sacreu honor," to serine tho liberties of his country." "Of the career of (Jen. llarrinn, I need not speak tho history of tho west is 111s History, ior 101 ty vcirs he has been identified with its interests, its peril und i'a hopes, UnirersnWj bclurea 111 the wall.s ot peace, and dUtiitguislicd by his ability in the councils of his country, ho ha been yet morn illuslrioitply dis tinguished in the field." ' During tho late wnr bo was longer in active service than any other general officers hn was perhaps oflener in action tlinn any one of them, and never sustained n defeat." James Madison, in a special message to Con gross, Dec. 18, 1811, said : "While it is deeply lamented thnt so mnny vahiablo liven have been lost m the action which took place on tho7lli ultimo, Conrrrcss will sec with satisfaction the dauntless spirit of fortilu'do victoriously displayed by every description of troops niguccd, as well 119 the collected firmness which distinguished their comman der (Gen'. Harrison,) on on occasion requiring the ut most exertions of ralor and discipline. James Madison, in his mcssago to Congress, Nov. 1812, said, 'An nmple force from the states of Kentucky, Ohio, IV nneylvniuu, nnd Vilginia, is ilnced, with lliunddilipn ..r r.L. r...,n,u under the comniaiid of Brigadier (icncritl Harrison, wlio possesses thocntiroconfidcnco of his fellow soldiers, among whom ato citizens, somo or theni volunteers, in tun rnnivs, iiiiuuBnuiiMiiiaujoiiuu by their political stations thun by their merits.

The following tribute of pralso was paid to Cicnoral Harrison, in ltul,hy eleven of tho ofli cers who fought under his banner at tlie battle of Tippecanoe : " Should our country again require our rtrvlccs to oppose n rivmzra or n savage 103, wo bliuuld morel niider General Ilnrrimni with thu moat perfect confi dence of victory mid fumu."

In tho first of these ho uses tho following language, which forms a rare and honorable exception to that cm ployed by most of tho opponents of General Harrison.

Ho has shown more talent in a single day of public service than Mr. Van Buren in his wliolo life, and yet tho spoil sockiu parasites of tho Magician, havo tho impudence to cay the General is not fit to be President.

True. I knew that in the twentv-two for eign despotic governments from which Mr. Van Buren drow his pattern for tho Sub-treasury, ho might like wise find examples for the Standing Army, and the Low-Wages scheme", but I did not suppose the fact that they were iuvoritc systems in moiiarehial govern ments no;i. would be sufficient to recommend their adoption hero. Consequently lhavo sought for somo other argument in their favor. I noticed in exami ning tlio speeches above referred to, that tho argument was addressed mainly to the manufacturers o( the North, and ficqucnt reference was had to the Tariff policy. This, tnlienmconncctionwilii the well Known fact that the administration goes with the South in its opposition to a Tnrillj I thought, furnisacd a solu tion of the design.

WHAT SHALL WE CAIN BY A CHANGE r If it bo asked what advantages wo expect from a change in tho administration, we reply, that wo confidently expect, first and foremost, the restoration of public confidence, the main spring and indispensable condition of success in all industrial enterprise, and tho consequent re suscitation of the pai red energies of a com mercial and busy people ; wc expect a revival of manufactures, increased activity in agricuU lure, and tho renewed cultivation of all the uso- ful arts ; wo expect retrenchment and economy in the uso of tho public funds ; wo expect a diminution of tho patronage of the executiro, and a reduction of tho number of pestilent offi. rials, who are now consuming tho land, and Hy ing in luxury on tho earnings of the people ; wc expect to sec the principle, that to the politi cal victor belong of right the spoils of office, dis carded and reprobated ; wc expect a system of collecting, keeping, and disbursing the publio revenue, whereby the purse shall be divorced from tho sword, and the national treasury shall be beyond the immediate control of the execu tive and its hirelings ; wc expect a distribution, or rather equitable appropriation for tlio benefit ofthc States, of the proceeds of the publio lands ; and in fine, we expect a return to the principles) upon which the government was administered while those who framed tho constitution woro alive to watch over it. lb. BE ON YOUR GUARD. Wo arc credibly informed that the locofocos tavc prepared a quantity of spurious whig bal lots, in which the name of Frederick Fletcher, is substituted for that of Tcaddcus R. Fletcher, for senator. These will be' sent into tho variou towns, and unless our friends aTc vigilant, the unwary will be imposed upon.- Tho locofocos know that they cannot, by fair means,- prevent the election of the whig senators, and that by a decisive majority. Hence tho resort to this dirty artifice. Let every freeman look tu it, and see that his ballot is right. Bo sure that tho names of JOSEPH MARSH and TIIADDEUS R. FLETCHER are upon it. LOOK OUT FOR ILLEGAL VOTING. The friends of Harrison cannot be too vigi lant to detect the tricks and games that tho leaders of the V. B. party will seek to play off upon them. Tlio great mass of the party would scorn all such things, but certain leaders office seekers and holders will not hesitate to do almost any thing to carry their points. In one town in Chittenden Co. a whig had the curi osity to look into the ballot-box year before last, before voting commenced, and discovered a hand ful of votes neatly deposited there for the loco foco candidate. In one town not a great dis tance from us, four young locos voted last year, who are not now 121 years old. We say to our friends look well to these matters know who aro not voters before election, and stop all illegal voting. We have no doubt that one thousand illegal votes were counted last year for the Van Buren party ; and there will be more this year, unless you put a stop to it. Look out fur this in evert town. Wo havo evidence that such de signs aro meditated in this rcmon. Caledonian, STATF. EXPENDITURES. PAUL DILLINGHAM Jii., O. W.
