"Violent Temper."

The Northern papers speak of the noble Jackson, who slew the ruffian Ellsworth, as a man of ‘"violent temper,"’ leaving it to be inferred that his mode of meeting the invader will prove an exceptional one. This is a delusion which can only be corrected by making a series of experiments upon the Confederate Flag. Mr. Jackson, as all who know him will testify, was one of the most amiable and exemplary of gentlemen, and his ‘"violent temper"’ the stern spirit of a freeman, which animates every soldier upon the Southern soil.
