A gallant soldier. Among the "missing" from Gen. Jackson's army, so reported after the late battle at Greenbrier river, is George P, Morgan, Esq., of Marion county, formerly of this city. Mr. Morgan was one of the pickets who met the advancing foe, and, instead of retreating to camp, fought at their post gallantly for more than an hour. He is (or was, for we know not his fate,) as noble a specimen of a man as Virginia can boast of. He is a brother-in-law of Senator Neeson and of Samuel Woods, Esq., of the State Convention, and a brother of the late Col. Chas. S. Morgan, of Richmond, and of Hon. W. S. Morgan, of Washington city. Thus connected, and a gentleman of means and having a family growing up around him, his patriotism induced him to leave his mansion and fine farm, and all their comforts and luxuries, to share the fate of a private soldier. Such a man, living or dead, deserves more honors than the laureled chieftain. We hope that he is yet alive.
Gen. Jackson's official report. This document was received at the War Dement on Thursday. We made repeated applications yesterday for permission to copy it, and were assured that it would not be granted to any member of the press for a day or two to come. At a late hour last night we learned that it would appear in one of the Richmond journals this morning. We deem it necessary to make this statement, in order to expose the folly of those officials who seem to regard it their duty to withhold from the press generally such matters of interest as the public have a right to know.
