with the firmness and courage of Andrew, she possesses all the energy and independence of Stonewall Jackson. The officials hate her; the soldiers adore her. The former name her The Great Eastern, courage as a warrior-he was to them the model of a Christian soldier. Cal the influence of General Jackson over his men ever be fully estimated? And was not this in a great measure owing to the depthing I ever saw or read on religion. While the battle was raging and the bullets were flying, Jackson rode by, calm as if he were at home, but his head was raised toward heaven, and his lips were meturned, and after waiting an hour the General rose from his knees. A writer says: General Jackson never enters a battle without invoking God's blessing and protection. The dependence of tples have ever told with more wondrous power upon the hearts of men. Is it surprising that Stonewall Jackson is invincible, and that he can lead his army to certain victory, whenever God's blessing p
efence of their country's freedom, and have linked their memory with an event that will live forever in the hearts of a grateful people. This series of battles was illustrated by many instances of the noblest Christian heroism. The model hero, Jackson, was as terrible in the swamps as he had been in the mountains. Rev. E. W. Yarbrough, a chaplain in the army, gives an interesting notice of this great and honored warrior: Before leaving, Colonel Zachry proposed to show me Stonewall Jackson, if I would ride with him a short distance. We found him quartered under an apple tree, and at work of course. My first impressions of this Southern Boanerges will never be forgotten. His form is slender, not very erect, and of medium height. His lion heart is concealed under as pleasant a countenance as I ever saw. Had we met on the road before this war broke out, I would have taken him for a Methodist itinerant preacher on his way to an appointment pondering a most serious discou
st in these tremendous struggles. A pious officer wrote immediately after the close of the battles: Never before have I seen so clearly and powerfully intervened in our behalf the right arm of the Lord of hosts. The names of Lee, Hill, Jackson, Magruder, and others, have been rendered immortal by their gallantry and skill so strikingly evinced in this series of engagements; but while their names are in our hearts and their praises upon our tongues, let there go up from the Southern Come from men who venerate their officers, and would follow them to the death. Some of our ablest generals are men who have dropped the gown for the apparel of the soldier. Polk was a Bishop, Pendleton a clergyman, D. H. Hill a religious author, Jackson a dignitary of the Church, while scores of others, occupying subordinate positions, are equally well known for their devotion at the shrine of Christianity. All of these gentlemen have been eminently successful in whatever they have undertaken,
, and commenced his stealthy retreat down the Peninsula with a broken and dispirited army, than Jackson was moving with his veterans to watch the braggart, Pope. It was a memorable lay when his fo and happy, following their great leader. Having reached a convenient point for observation, Jackson soon divined the purposes of General Pope. This vain man, who had pompously announced to his ter of other gallant officers and men here gave their lives to the holy cause. This blow from Jackson was an earnest of what was soon to follow. Withdrawing from the vicinity of Cedar Mountain, hehe triumph of the wicked is short. In the midst of these outrages the appalling news came that Jackson was in their rear. The mighty host was thrown into confusion; and in vain it labored to checke Yankees two days dead on the battle-field, and buried them. They were horrible to behold. Gen. Jackson had been there before us. We pushed forward, passing through Orleans and Salem; at the latte
ortion of his force to hold the Maryland Heights, opposite Harper's Ferry, General Jackson was directed by General Lee to recross the Potomac at Williamsport, captur Martinsburg, and, by a rapid movement, completely surround Harper's Ferry. Jackson marched with his wonted celerity; Martinsburg fell with its garrison and storeed on the 13th of September. No sooner did McClellan hear of the movements of Jackson than he resolved to make a powerful effort to defeat his plans. Leaving Washi of cannon, 200 wagons, with a vast amount of stores and camp equipage. General Jackson announced this event in his laconic style: Yesterday God crowned our arms his whole army. On Monday our army took position in front of Sharpsburg, and Jackson, leaving Harper's Ferry, rejoined his chief in time to participate in the impet night, when it subsided into skirmishes along the lines. It was reopened by Jackson on Wednesday, and soon became general. Both armies fought desperately through
tskirts, leaving of the congregation, or restless change of position. I suppose, at the close of the services, we had some sixty or seventy men and officers come forward and publicly solicit an interest in our prayers, and there may have been as many more who, from the press, could not reach the stand. I have already conversed with quite a number, who seem to give pleasant evidence of return to God, and all things seem to be rapidly developing for the best. The officers, especially Generals Jackson and Early, have modified military rules for our accommodation. I have just learned that Gen. A. P. Hill's division enjoys as rich a dispensation of God's Spirit as Gen. Early's. Ask all the brethren and sisters to pray for us and the army at large. I would not be surprised to learn that the condition of things above described prevails extensively in portions of our soldiers at present out of our view. P. S.-I have opened this letter the second time to inform you of the wide spread
w ladies, young and old, looking oh with sad faces, many of them weeping. Could we have spoken to these sorrowing ones, we would have said, Be not alarmed, Stonewall Jackson is somewhere. Friday, October 31st.-In lines and off at 7 o'clock. Many are limping with blistered feet and swollen joints. The barefooted stood the me 13th, his arrangements for attack being completed about nine o'clock, the movement veiled by a fog, he advanced boldly in large force against our right wing. Gen. Jackson's corps occupied the right of our line, which rested on the railroad; Gen. Longstreet's the left, extending along the heights to the Rappahannock, above Frederm a heavy fire, which he sustained unflinchingly for about two hours. In the meantime the enemy was fiercely encountered by Gen. A. P. Hill's division, forming Gen. Jackson's right, and, after an obstinate combat, repulsed. During this attack, which was protracted and hotly contested, two of Gen. Hill's brigades were driven back
e for the bread of life, they would certainly hasten to break that bread to them, that they might not perish. I have never seen such a field for doing good, and extending the Redeemer's kingdom on earth, as the army of Northern Virginia presents this day. The fields are already white unto the harvest, but the laborers, who must gather this rich harvest into the Master's granary, where, oh, where are they? It is astonishing to know what destitution of chaplains prevails. In this corps-General Jackson's where an especial effort has been made to secure their services, not one-half of the regiments are supplied. Can you not, my dear sir, raise, in our behalf, the Macedonian cry, and urge zealous, laborious ministers of the gospel to come and help us? They will be received by the army everywhere with open, wide-stretched arms. Cannot Bishop Pierce devote a few months to missionary labors in the army of Northern Virginia this summer? Liberal souls at home will, doubtless, gladly devi
verhung this great victory was the death of Gen. Jackson. The sad story is here given as it was repr Leigh, and on the other Lieutenant Smith. Gen. Jackson struggled violently to rise, as though to e when he received the news of the wounding of Jackson were characteristic of that great and good mawas not without a loss of many valuable men. Jackson asked quickly: Have you heard of any one thate to inform Mrs. Jackson of his condition. Mrs. Jackson, knowing that he had often said he would wi.
