Gen. Jackson and Mr. Lincoln.The Washington "States," referring to Mr. Lincoln's recent fright says, "discretion is the better part of valor, and doubtless Mr. Lincoln showed a commendable precaution in taking the advice of his friends. It will be remembered, however, twenty-five years ago Gen. Jackson was warned of approaching danger, which did not prove entirely foundationless." True enough, but how did he meet it? By turning tail and running like a hound? No; but as he always did, more than half way. The language of his conduct whenever warned of Danger was that of Caesar, when warned to beware of the Ides of March. ‘ "Danger knows full well
That Caesar is more dangerous than he.
We were twin Hours, littered in one day,
And I the elder and more terrible."
