What is said of the present Jackson, we suspect, is fully as just as what was said of his namesake, fully as just as what was said of Wellington, fully as just as what was said of Washington, and not one bit more so. No man can do what he has done unless he be a man of talent. If he has never before been esteemed such, his deeds establish his claim.
