States of Illinois and Michigan. In perfor

was elected a Delegate to Congress from
Indiana Hardly had he returned; from his
duties in' the National Legislature, before
c;rcumstance8 were developed whih threat
ened another bloody incursion of Itbe Indi
ans. Tecumseh, and his brother, tile Proph
et, had commenced those intrigues by which
they expected to unite all the Northwestern
Xnbes of Indians against the Winces. They
went from village to village, makinz inflim
matory harrangues and appealing to every
passion of cruelly, rapine, and revenge.
Gen.-Harrison immediately, adop'ed meas
tires to place the Territory jn a situation for
defence. The intrigues of Tecumseli and
t)je Prophet, thongh .not although unavail
ing, did not meet with complete success un
til 131 1, when the approach of. ai war be
tween the. United Stales and Great Britain em
boldened the savages and mad & t hem more
anxious than ever, for the massacre of the
settlers. They assembled their wamors in
prophet Town. On tlie 28tli of October,
S 11, Gen. Harrison, with 900 militia
Under his command, commenced his march
and being compelled to pass through a
counlrv which afioided every facility for at
tack to the Indians, was forced to; exercise
the greatest precaution and vigilance, On
t'he' morning of the 17th of November, , the
irmy having encamped in the vicinity i of
prophet Town, was furiously attacked: by
Che Indians undtfrthe- commanJd of Tc
lumseh's brother. A more - dating and
bloody confitcU. considering the! numbers
engaged, is not recorded iu history. -Tbe
Coolness, skill, and intrepid valoiir dojby
d by Gen; Harrison, during the;engage'
Inent, were never surpassed. He was. ever
fou nil in the thickest .of the fightj entoura
it)g his men by his presence and braverv.
The route of the savages was complete, and
fibe beneficial effects of the victory v were
ielt throughout the Territories j The ! Le

reached them, passed unanimously ihejfol
