Jackson ; is more prudent; however, always thinks before he acts, on any important subject; and, in his final decision, is not so apt to be influenced by partiality or prejudice. Gen. Jackson, in all places, and in all his associations, shows himself the firm, commanding, military man. Gen. Harrison, on the contrary, exeept in his tall and finely proportioned figure, has. but little of the military air; is modest and retiring in his manners; plain in dross; food of reading, the company of his friends, and all agricultural pursuits.
