English papers that the distinguished gentlemen who head the movement for expressing in a suitable form the admiration in that country for the memory of "Stone wall" Jackson, have nearly completed their plans. A statue in marble, of heroic size, 7 feet in height, by Foley, is to be presented to the native State of Jackson, Virginia, to be placed in the Capitol at Richmond. The statue will rest on a pedestal of granite designed by the same artist, and on one side it is proposed to inscribe that this is a testimony of England's admiration for a truly noble character on the other side Gen. Lee's order of the day, informing the army of its sad loss. It is estimated that the statue, without the pedestal, will cost £500 more. In all, £1,500. The sum is to be raised by subscriptions. The committee which has this matter in hand consists at present of the following names: Sir James Fergusson, M P, Mr. A Beresford Hope, Sir Edward Kerrison, M. P.; Mr. Gregory, M. P. Sir Coutts Lindsay, Lord Campbell, Mr. Lindsay, M. P, Mr. G E Seymour, Mr. J Spence, and Mr. G Peacocke, M P.
