When a man is reduced to poverty by a career of vice, folly and extravagance, he stands as a just object for the finger of scorn to point at.

It proves his honesty to bo like the pure metal seven times refined. General Harrison is now n poor man yet he has passed a lifetime in the service of his country protecting its territory, recovering its lost dominion, fighting ils battles, defending its character and supporting its institutions. During his eventful career, he has had, for a time, almost dictatorial power, he has had the control of vast sums of public money he has had countless opportunities of pos sessing himself of v...
