Snelling, Josiah 1782-1829 Military officer; born in Boston, Mass., in 1782; served in the war against Tecumseh; promoted captain in June, 1809, and won distinction at Tippecanoe; was conspicuous for gallantry during the second war with England, taking part in the battles of Lundy's Lane, Chippewa, and Fort Erie. He refused to raise a flag of truce at the fall of Detroit, and while a prisoner declined to take his hat off to Nelson's monument, despite the efforts of the British soldiers to force him to remove it. Finally, he was freed from embarrassment by the command of Gen. Isaac Brock, who ordered the British soldiers to respect the scruples of a brave man. He was promoted lieutenant-colonel in 1815 and colonel in 1819. He was the author of Remarks on Gen. William Hull's memoirs of the campaign of the Northwestern army, 1812. He died in Washington, D. C., Aug. 20, 1829.

Tippecanoe, battle of In the summer of 1811, the followers of Tecumseh and his brother showing signs of hostility, the governor of Indiana suggested to the government the propriety of establishing a military post high up the Wabash. The government proposed the seizure of Tecumseh and his brother as hostages for peace. A regiment under Col. John Boyd, stationed at Pittsburg, was ordered to repair to Vincennes to be placed under Harrison's command, and the latter was authorized, should the ott, and Warrick, the whole commanded by Lieut.-Col.

Everett, recently Governor of Massachusetts, and now in Europe, where he purposes passing two or more years. He will be in England before he returns here; if so, I hope he may see you. He is, perhaps, the most accomplished man of my country. Our politics are shabby enough. The Whigs, constituting the opposition, have nominated for the Presidency the person whose head adorns a corner of this sheet. He has in his favor his good conduct during the war of 1812, and an alleged victory at Tippecanoe; and the vulgar appeal is made, grounded on military success. This has made him a more acceptable candidate than Clay or Webster, who have been serving the State well for years. Harrison lives in the State of Ohio, cultivating his farm with his own hands; and, as what is called help in that part of the country is not easy to be procured, his wife and daughter cook and serve the dinner for the seven or eight people who daily challenge his hospitality.

came President of the United States he introduced gold spoons into the White House. This was considered a terrible piece of extravagance for a democratic country. His administration was characterized by his enemies as the most extravagant of the Presidents. In the next campaign, when he was a candidate for re-election, the gold spoons were used against him with telling vengeance. Everywhere the cry rang out in the North against Martin Van Buren's extravagance, and with this cry that of Tippecanoe and Tyler, too, with the result that Harrison was elected. But succeeding years have shown that Mr. Van Buren's administration was the most economical of all the Presidents, notwithstanding the gold spoons, as it was certainly one of the most brilliant. Then Mr. Semmes recalled personal experiences with all the Presidents of those succeeding days, and his reminiscences form a delightful history of themselves.

In the front was a large airy room with some finished goods in it, and an assortment of loafers. It was so convenient that when a Whig headquarters was wanted in 1840, for a presidential campaign, all eyes turned to Howe's front room and he let the Whigs have it. They fitted it up grandly. At least we boys thought so. Pictures of General Harrison, of Tippecanoe and Tyler too, log cabins and hard cider barrels galore hung on the walls, also others ridiculing Matty Van Buren and his Kinderhook cabbages, etc., etc. The secretary of the club was Charles Hall, chosen unanimously, and to be in charge of the place all the time until election.

The gigantic strength, the superior civilization, and the boundless resources of the free States are able to carry desolation from the Potomac to the Rio Grande. The whole North from Maine to California, although usually "slow to wrath," patient and forbearing, is at last fearlessly aroused. The descendants of the heroes of Bunker Hill, Saratoga, Brandywine, Tippecanoe, Chippewa, and Fort Meigs, are flying to arms.--Presently the Continent will resound under the stern and steady tramp of unprecedented myriads of the free laborers and mechanics of the North. Let them finish their enterprise. Let them plant the stars, stripes, and eagles of an indissoluble Republic on the steeples of Richmond, Charleston and New Orleans. Let the traitor States be starved out by blockade and given to the swords and bayonets of stalwart freemen. No matter at what cos

McClellan's "Small-Tull Movement." During the Presidential canvass between Harrison and Van Buren, a speaker was dilating with great fervor upon the exploits of the former at a grand barbecue somewhere in Indiana, especially his great victory at Tippecanoe, when a long legged, grizzly bearded chap of the Van-Buren stripe interrupted him in one of his most sublime flights by crying out. "Harrison made the small-tail movement on that occasion." Here was a poser. The orator could not imagine what the man in the crowd was at. He had never beard of the "small-tail" movement. No description of it was to be found in any book of tactics he had ever read. At the same time it would never do to confess ignorance. He therefore did the best he could "under the circumstances." He denied, vehemently and peremptorily, that Harrison had ever made the "small-tail" movement, and called upon his vilifier to prove the charge. Thus challenged, that individual ran his hand into his pocket, and p
