That we have received the intelligence of the death of Gen. Felix K. Zollicoffer
with feelings of the profoundest sorrow, and lament his untimely end as an irreparable loss to the cause for which he heroically gave his life.
In private life, or in discharging public duties, we always found him an incorruptible patriot.
Cool and collected amidst troubles, he was unfaltering in the execution of his purposes.
No man, since Gen Andrew Jackson
, enjoyed so completely the confidence and undivided esteam of the people of Tennessee
That we mourn his death as a great public loss, which is only relieved by the recollection that he fell fighting bravely at the head of his column, against the invaders of his country.
