Gen. Harney is a native of Louisiana. We beg leave to disclaim the fellowship implied, but are sorry to have to transfer it to as gallant a State as Tennessee. Gen. Harney was born in Tennessee, long enough ago to have lost all interest in the land of his birth, and to extinguish all desire to claim him. His appointment to the army was from this State. Happily, he has been little known here, and that was never such as to induce respect. In his old age he has succeeded in making himself detested in the land of his birth, and the family who is twice dishonored by being associated with him on the army list.--N. O. Pic.
