ning." Fond of society, he leased the Marshall House, in Alexandria, fitted it up with new furniture and table ware, and removed there the first of the present year. He is the same man who out down the Lincoln pole in Ocequan, in the adjoining county of Prince William, last summer. Jackson was asleep in the second story when Ellsworth entered his house (about day-break) and proceeded to the roof to take down his flag. The servant who aroused him, told him that the house was full of "Lincoln men," and that some of them had gone up after the flag, and begged him not to leave his room. He rose immediately, and slipping on his pants, seized his double-barrelled shot gun at the head of his bed, and had reached the first turn in the stairway leading to the third story, when he met Ellsworth coming down with the flag wrapped around him and followed by a number of Zouaves. Without uttering a word — it was enough that his flag had been taken down — Jackson shot him through the heart,
part of the garden before the Northern march must be turned into a desert; let him see that a wilderness is to be his only spoils, and he will soon tire of the murderous crusade for Southern money which he has begun. For no murder for money was ever committed which had about it more of the elements of murder, and was prompted by more cold-blooded greed of gold, and more reckless disregard of the life and property of others, than this most wicked and mercenary war. Suppose, then, that Lincoln succeeds in raising his four hundred millions of dollars and his four hundred thousand men; and suppose, also, that with these he succeeds in subjugating the South, how will the North reimburse itself for the expenses of the war?--It cannot fall back on trade; it cannot compel us to work our cotton fields for its benefit; it cannot prevent us from making the whole cotton country a desert, and sacrificing ourselves and all that we have for our country.--It cannot compel our negroes to labor
The City Council of Louisville, at the instance of Lincoln's agents, have passed an ordinance to prohibit the manufacture of powder in Louisville.
s. Mr. Washburn repeated his denial that Mr. May had either the authority or the consent of the Administration to visit Richmond. Mr. Calvert, of Maryland, said that Mr. May did go to Richmond under the authority of the Government. Mr. Lincoln had himself told him that Mr. May asked for a passport declaring it was his purpose to visit Virginia simply as a private citizen, and in that understanding Mr. Lincoln not only gave his consent, but induced Gen. Scott to furnish a special pasMr. Lincoln not only gave his consent, but induced Gen. Scott to furnish a special passport. Mr. Vallandigham moved to lay the resolution on the table. Mr. Kellogg, of Illinois, endorsed the views of Mr. Dawes in respect to the jurisdiction of this House, but as the friends of Mr. May boldly asserted that that gentleman had undertaken a political mission to Richmond with the consent and sanction of the Administration, and the friends of the latter denied the assertion, a different aspect was put upon the case. Under these circumstances an investigation into the subjec
the benefit of the sick at Yorktown. Yesterday two ladies could be seen, with their hoes in hand, weeding corn, as such work is very necessary at this time. One of them informed me that she weeded about 2,500 hills, and that her sister was "too much for her" at weeding corn! What will the husband say when he hears that his wife is weeding corn? What will Virginians say? and what will the entire South say? What prospect is there for "subjugation?" Is a man to be frightened by Abe Lincoln, when the ladies act thus? Call for millions of men; call for millions of dollars, and when there is no man to girt on his armor for warfare, woman will meet the hirelings of Yankeedom, and cause them to kneel and call for mercy. I have only written a few lines, that you may insert it in your paper, to give to our sisters in the South what Virginia ladies are doing. I am not a writer for newspapers. James City. P. S.--The above lady will continue to weed corn till the crop
A good Sign. --Mr. J. V. Durand, agent for the house of J. R. Jaffray & Co., of London, was in our city on yesterday. We learn from him that this well known British firm designs establishing an agency in New Orleans, for the importation of goods, wares and merchandize of every character, direct from Europe, with the view of supplying all orders from Southern merchants. Every movement of this kind — the natural sequence of Lincoln's blockade — will add to the growth of Southern cities in just such proportion as it detracts from the industrial prosperity of those in the North.--Memphis Appeal, 17t
