I roy In p. surd as tlicso contradictions arc, yet wo aro told, Mr. Van Ness labored hard in his speech at Williston to give tliein form and substance. " Ti what base uses do wo como at last 1" Gen. Harrison, wo admit, never thought much about retreating when he had onco taken hit position j and wo have not the least suspicion that the old follow has any idea of backing out now. .So wo advise his enemies to profit by tho lights of history, and prepare to follow Proctor. " If the torics aro to bo believed, (says a cotom porary) Gen. Harrison exhibited great want of generalship and military skill in all his battlea. According to their ideas of the manner in which troops should bo arrayed, he ought to have bcoii beaten at Tippecanoe, Tort Meigs and tho Thames. All this may be very trite ; for tho Bake of the argument wo will grant that he ought to have been beaten ; but how comes it, let ua inquire, that be was not beaten ! When tho little Corsican at the head of the French armiea rushed down like an avalanche from the Alp into the plain of Imbardy gained tliCi battle of Lodi and Marengo shut up old Warmer in Mantua and sent tho Arch Duke Charlci ilying across tho Tyrol tho veteran war coun cil at Vienna, declared that ho hail folight alto gether contrary to rule ; and that for the very best of reasons he ought to have been defeated; Now we arc by no means anxious to claim fof Harrison the military talents of a Napoloan ; but hero is, to say the least, a remarkable coin deuce, as the abnanack-makcrs have it. Whtiri Napoloan boat the Austrians in detail, and plan-' ted bis eagles on tho battlements of Vienna, tho French nation never asked him how ho did it; They wcro satisfied with the fact, and that wad glory enough for them. Just so witli the Amer ican nullum They loam from the history of their country that Harrison's victory "would have secured to a lloinan general the honors of a triumph in the best days of the republic," and they ask no more questions. Thoy have no idea of lowering the character of their own ofli ccr.J, and exalting that of the British, for tho sake of gratifying the malice of a puny and contemptible faction. "A STERN FACE." Amos Kendal, in his address to tho public says that " the administration set its face sternly against the plunderers of tho public money." This unblushing declaration, tho Albany Daily Advertiser meets and answers by a publication of the official documents in tho case of Harris. Wc were about to hunt up these documents for tho purpose of illustrating another case. But the article in question is so much to the point, wc copy it entire, and invite the reader's special attention. Wc doubt whether the history of the political world, taken from beginning to end, presents another case of govornuicntcorniption, so open, so palpable, eo Jhtgrnnl, so shameless, as this case of Wm. P. Harris. This man was appointed a receiver of public moneys in .Mis sissippi, and as his situation gave him the best possible means of speculating in public land.-', lie Immediately began to npply the funds in his hands to that object. Tlio government knew that ho was plundering the public money, and yet he was continued in office. Occasionally, to be sure, he was cautioned not to steal any more, una requested to pay over; but, forsooth, " bis friends were inlluential, all supporters of the administration" an "important election was pending," and the opposition would regard the dismissal of a public defaulter as a " victory ;" LOCO FOCO .MEETING AT WILLISTON. and for these reasons, ho was still allowed to 1 , , , , , nl.tndnr thn mtblie. mount- morn than a vnnr nftnr TllC loCO foCOS licld a CoUnty Convention at be was known to be a defaulter, and then allow- Williston on Wednesday.

A loco foco friend became the pur chaser, and of course the lands went back instantly into Harris' possession. The pretended sal was 'a mere luana-uvio of the administration to enable the dcfultcr to compromise his debt of SC0.0&0 for S300. Thus it will bo seen that after allowing Har ris to plunder the public treasury, and resign in full possession of all he spoils, his broad lands, purchased with the stolen money, after going through the farce of a public nln. ng-n! to bis benefit, and bo will now be enabled to revel like a prince in tho pnjoynicnt of his vast pos- essions !

And the Sentinel, if we recollect right, has never conde scended to inform its readers any thing about the popular vote iu that State. If there is loco foco majority m Virginia, wc should like to see the figures that make it out. But such not the fact. The stato is, beyond all doubt lost to tho administration, and tho late whi, majority of twcntyseien humlird, will be large increased in November. In reference to this point, the Richmond Whig, roferrring to north western Virginia, says : " We are justified by tho wholo current of information from this re gion, in assuring our whig friends throughout tho State, that it will givo an unprecedent Whig vote nt the fall election. Let the whi in every other section of the state do as well and tho Old Dominion goes for Harrison and re form by 10,000 majority." NO KKTIIKAT.

Hut wc arc reliovcd. The o.rceo. tion is found. The administration has been able to hire two or three individuals, through out tlio length and breadth of this land, to join the sinking cause of locofocoism. Among tliese, is a Mr Wicklifi'o of Kentucky, of whom the Louisville Journal gives the following ac count. WicklitTo, it is said is to have an ap pointment at Washington. pcsEr.Tr.it to Tin: knemv.
