Young Jackson entered the service of the United States as brevet lieutenant under General Scve been proud In addition to his regular promotions during that campaign, Lieutenant Jackson was brevetted a major for distinguished services at the battle of Chapultepec.

Jackson held a conspicuous position, and in the great battle of Manassas he carped a
having missed his aim at the tyrant, thrust his right arm into the fire, Already one glorious name adorns our Confederate escutcheon, one nero in whom Virginia shall ever take an especial pride and complacency; who, unaided and alone, stood unterrified in the midst of a grim, ferocious and blood-thirsty enemy, and seeing the flag hauled down, the sacred emblem of fatherland, could not brook that spectacle, but shot down on the spot the insolent Lincolnites who dared to profane it. Shade of Jackson, an hail! Martyr in the holy cause of liberty. -- May the memory of your noble deed fire the heart of every Southern soldier, nerve his arm for the combat, impel him to fight beyond the mark of ethers and lurch all swords of the garland.

There are certain movements in actual operation or contemplated, that we do not deem it advisable to no ice now; but we feel assured that there will be sharp work there soon.-- Gen. McCulloch has had a severe task and has acted with his accustomed energy. In this he has been ably seconded by his officers, and especially by Quartermaster General Clarke. With volunteers, all eager to fight, but undrilled; with but it the specie and a vast outlay to make, McCulloch has had to work hard. He has overcome these obstacles, and when he once takes the field will keep the en
Trying the Temper of the troops --The Pensacola Observer, of the 1st inst, relater the following: At about half past 1 o'clock this morning, an alarm was given by a sentinel on duty, which was answered by every one until it went the whole rounds. In precisely sixteen minutes from the time of the alarm that noble and gallant corps of Artillery, the Mobile Continentals, were in front of Col. Jackson's quarters, some half or three-fourths of a mile from their encampment. Captain Cox, with his brave and daring Prattville Dragoons were there in much less time. Too much praise cannot be given these two companies for the promptness and eagerness with which they responded to the call. They knew not — tye, they anticipated that in a few moments they would be engaged with those whom they are so anxious to meet; for the rumor was that a great army was crossing the bay in all kinds of boats, &c. They were the first upon the field. Then came Georgia's noble sons from Camp Stephens,
