e of the process that was in store for him in after life. Through the did of gentlemen who took a deep interest in his welfare, he entered the Military Academy at West Point as a Cadet, about the year 1843, and graduated with high honors just at the beginning of the war with Mexico.-- During the whole of the term spent at West Point, he never failed upon an examination or received a "mark" of demerit. Young Jackson entered the service of the United States as brevet lieutenant under General Scott at Vera Cruz. In the memorable campaign from Vera Cruz to Mexico, he achieved honors of which a veteran officer might well have been proud In addition to his regular promotions during that campaign, Lieutenant Jackson was brevetted a major for distinguished services at the battle of Chapultepec. At the close of the war with Mexico, Major Jackson returned to his native State with his health very much impaired, in consequence of which he resigned his position in the army. He shortly

outhern cause, in seizing Staunton or attacking Johnston at Winchester, than any other Federal General has possessed, his column has completely illustrated the schoolboy story of one step forward and two back. The magnificent natural rampart of Cheat Mountain, which either side may make a Gibraltar, has fallen into our hands; the army of thirty-six thousand is growing "small by degrees and beautifully less, " whilst our own column is gradually and steadily advancing upon their retreating foot steps. Not a single General in the whole Federal army has come as near a grand success as McClellan, and not one who ever lived has let the bird of good fortune make such a wonderful escape. We see nothing, therefore, in McClellan's Western Virginia campaign to make us believe that he can show more military science, energy, and pertinacity at Washington than Mansfield, McDowell, and the large crowd of skillful and experienced army advisers by whom Gen. Scott has been counselled and assisted.
An unworthy Pretext. Gen. Scott's miserable subterfuges to escape the responsibility of Manassas are unworthy a great mind. He shows that he thinks more of preserving his own military reputation than of the truth and honor which are the brightest ornaments of a soldier's character. His mortification must be intense, but that is no apology for the undignified and unmanly shifts he resorts to for soothing his wounded pride. Hitherto, he has boasted that he never lost a battle; but he never was engaged in one before on a grand scale. It is clear that he cannot handle large bodies of men — an operation which requires a real General! The world has found him out at last, and so, crimson with rage and gobbling out great swelling words of vanity and falsehood, the demented old turkey cock disappears from the scene of public affairs.

Notwithstanding the anxiety of Sir Walter Scott to establish a family inheritance, his direct race have perished, and those of but slight relationship inherit his land and title. We believe that with the sons of Robert Burne, the family of the national poet of Scotland will expire. Lord Byron to only represented on the feni de le side. It would he easy to prolong this list to a great event. We have not omitted to look at the reason and circumstances which may be supposed to argue against the facts to which we allude;
