And these were the high words he spoke "Are not these lips as free To bear their witness to the cause Of glorious liberty.- .

From the Goshen (Ia.) Demorat. THEi- LAST WHIG 8ONii. Solid arguments and good reasons not being -quite as plenty in furtherance of the claims of Harrison. the Whigs have adopted a new idea in the history of political warfare, and are now striving with such litngs as they may possess to sing the North Bend hero into the Presidency. Every whig print has a new whig song which may he sung, said or whistled; and in Detroit a book-ves, a whig s6ng book has beein publish. ed, filled with most delightful ballads all about Tipipecanoe. Lest they may run out of stock, wve propose to help theut a little,so here's the last Whig song. which though not remarkable for its poetry, is remarkable for its truth. Old North Bend was a jolly old soul, And a jolli old soul was he, He called forhis pipe, and he called for his bowl And he called fur his Committee of three! le called for his mug of apple juice, The best there was in the larden And told his committee "make no excuse, Every day it is growing ...

The Har rison papers asserted liat.this letter would put at rest all doubts in regard to General Harrison's principles and opinions of the principal topics of the day.
