--Gen. Beauregard has presented to Gen. Jackson a splendid silver mounted pistol, of a new pattern, made in Paris expressly for Jackson.
It is a revolver, navy size, constructed to threw balls as a caution throws grapeshot.
With this formidable weapon an officer hard pressed in action might destroy half a dozen enemies at a single discharge.
An appropriate inscription is engraved on the silver plating.
