klyn she did steer Down through the Gulf of Mexico for every privateer. It was in the month of April, the fleet being all complete That was to capture New-Orleans, the rebels to defeat; From Pilotstown the fleet steamed up, resolved not to return Until the Louisiana fleet we'd sink, destroy, and burn. The rebels they were well prepared their city to defend; From bank to bank, between two forts, a chain they did extend; Fort Philip with its eighty guns, well counterscarped all round, While Jackson with one hundred more upon the left-hand frowned. With battering-rams, and fire-rafts, and all the gunboat fleet, The rebels they were well prepared the Union tars to meet; With sand and floating batteries, upon the river-side, Bold Duncan in Fort Jackson brave Farragut defied. On the twenty-fourth of April, before the break of day, The Hartford, being flag-ship, then a red light did display; The light was seen throughout the fleet, then up went cheer on cheer, The Union fleet got under w

and one at Plymouth Rock. The canting, witch-hanging, nasal-twanging, money-worshipping, curiosity-loving, meddling, fanatical, ism --breeding followers of Cromwell, spread over the greater part of the North and West. Jamestown stock chiefly peopled the South, and small sections of the North-west Territory, which, with Kentucky, belonged to Virginia. It was the descendants of the genuine Yankee which met us at Manassas and before Richmond and fled from the Valley of the Shenandoah before Jackson. It was in part the descendants of the Jamestown stock, crossed with the Yankee, which met us at Donelson and Shiloh, and who are our stoutest foes. Any one who will look into this bit of history will see that it is true. Extreme religious bigotry indulged for more than two centuries, and constant intermarriage have impoverished the Yankee blood, until the Yankee mind has become diseased and filled with innumerable isms. On the contrary, though the South has preserved its great Englis
ters the sacrament.--On the morning of a recent battle near Harper's Ferry, after a sermon by one of his chaplains, Stonewall Jackson, who, by the way, is an elder in the Presbyterian Church, administered the sacrament to the church members in his a the man who presided, overcame his scruples, and thus it has happened that the prospect of a fight and the eloquence of Jackson made a Baptist forget that baptism is the door into the church. In all Jackson's army an oath is rarely uttered. A rel with the strongest convictions of patriotism, his men are irresistible. In this incident we have an explanation of General Jackson's invincibility, and we are thus enabled to understand why his men are all heroes, and why they endure without a murure without a murmur the severest hardships to which any troops have been subjected during the war. When peace is restored it will be honor enough for any man to say: I belonged to the army of Stonewall Jackson. --Knoxville Register, September 30.
Partisan corps.--The following advertisement appeared in the Mississippian: Partisan Rangers. I have to-day received authority from the Secretary of War, at Richmond, to raise a corps of Partisan Rangers, to serve in the southern part of this State, for the war, where they are most urgently needed at this time, to check and intercept the marauding parties of our vandal enemies, who are every day committing robbery and murder upon Mississippi soil. They must be driven back. Bold, true, and earnest men, of any age, will be received in this corps; but no others are wanted, or will be retained. Each man will furnish his horse, saddle, bridle, double-barrel shot-gun or rifle, and clothing. Fifty dollars bounty and commutation paid to all who join this corps now. We will rendezvous at Jackson, Mississippi, on Tuesday, the tenth June next. Those wishing to join will find a list at Messrs. Allen, Ligon and Co.'s, Jackson. C. Mclaurin.

Interview with Stonewall Jackson. camp Parole, Annapolis, Md., January 6, 1863. dear sir: I will attempt, in accordance with your request, to give you an account of my interview with Stonewall Jackson, while a prisoner at his camp, and of Stonewall Jackson, while a prisoner at his camp, and of my sojourn at Libby Prison in Richmond. A few days after my capture, I was sent to Jackson's camp, at Nineveh, Warren County, Va. I reached there Tuesday, November eleventh, in company with four others. Gen. Jackson came out of his tent just as weGen. Jackson came out of his tent just as we were leaving for the guard-house, (an old church near by,) and desired us to wait a few minutes, as he would like to ask us a few questions. When were you taken? he inquired. November seventh, I replied. Have you any New-York papers with yf any of us had any green-backs we would like to exchange for confederate paper! We remained there two days, with the Jackson foot cavalry, a brigade of Irish soldiers. Those with whom I conversed, said they would give almost any thing to be bac
