The remains of Gen Jackson.

--The remains of Lieut-Gen. Thos. J. Jackson were removed at an early hour yesterday morning from the Hall of Congress, in the Capitol, and carried to the Governor's mansion, whence they were taken at 7 o'clock to the depot of the Virginia Central Railroad, to be transported to the late home of deceased — Lexington, Rockbridge county, Va. They were to be carried from this city to Gordonsville, thence to Lynchburg, and from there would be taken direct to Lexington. The Public Guard acted as funeral escort from the Executive mansion to the cars. The widow and child of the deceased, her brother, the members of the General's staff, Governor Letcher, and a number of others, accompanied the remains to their last resting-place.
