Statue to the memory of Jackson.

A nation's gratitude for distinguished services is about manifesting itself in the subscriptions which are coming in for the erection of a bronze statue to the memory of the heroic and lamented Jackson. We are informed by Col. S. Bassett French, who has consented to receive subscriptions for this purpose, that the ball has been liberally set in motion by the subscription of $1,000 from a gentleman of Petersburg. This is a subscription worthy of the gallant man whose memory the statue is designed to perpetuate, and we doubt not that others from all parts of the country will most gladly unite in this tribute to the departed Christian hero.
