as also the leading quality of Hannibal, and whenever great results are attained, will be found, though not the sole, yet the dominating quality, whether in civilized or barbarian war. Energy was the prominent characteristic of our immortal Jackson, and furnishes the solution of his whole mysterious and magnificent career. In military genius and science he may not have been superior to other Generals, but in promptness, perseverance, rapidity, determination to secure success, he has had fAmerica or Europe. His was the "Action, action, action," of Demosthenes, which is not less the source of success in war than in oratory. These observations are by no means designed to underrate the value of scientific military educations. Jackson was a West Pointer, and one of the most industrious students of that celebrated institution. Now and then a great natural military man may be found, born a soldier, as some men are born mechanics, but such cases are exceptional. We should in g

silk flag, with a human skull and cross-bones, executed with the skill of a painter and an anatomist, which was fearfully eloquent of our derater resort. When the ladies of our country thus, like James Fitz James, defy and dare all and everything rather than submit, where is the man who will hesitate? This afternoon's train brought quite a crowd of notables to Morton, his Excellency Gov. J. J. Pettus, now restored to perfect health, among the number. The Governor will doubtless visit Jackson before his return. As Superintendent of the conscript bureau No. 2, Gen. Pillow is doing the State most efficient service, and the time will come when his services therein will be deemed by the whole country the salvation of the Confederate cause. Major General Lee, recently elevated to the dignity of the yellow sash, will soon enter upon his duties as chief cavalry commander of this whole department. He is the same Lee whose name frequently and honorably appears in the accounts of t
Defacing the old Pub. Func. --The editor of the Scranton (Penn.) Republican says: We saw a curious embellishment the other day — a five dollar bill on the Pottsville Bank, which contains in one corner a vignette of James Buchanan. Some person had bunged his eyes with led ink, drawn a gallows above his head, from which a rope was suspended that went round his neck, and then branded his forehead with the word "Judas." This is but one of hundreds. The bank has had to call in all its issue with that portrait on it, so unmistakable are the manifestations of popular indignation against the man who might, had he the will or the pluck, have nipped the rebellion in the bud, as Jackson did before him.
From Western Virginia. Goshen, Va., Aug. 27. --(Via Staunton, 27th.)--The Yankees have fallen back to attack Gen. Jones at Lewisburg, in the rear, while another detachment is about attacking him in front. Jackson, during the last four days lighting, behaved gallantly. After being flanked and surrounded several times, he heroically cut his way out. A detachment of Major Lucky's battalion went in the enemy's rear and destroyed part of his wagon train. Our loss thus far, all told, is from fifty to one hundred.

nnounced, there have been for several days anticipations of a raid upon this place. On Friday last a dispatch was received by the commandant of the post, from Col. Jackson, that there was a considerable force of the enemy in Highland county, between him and this place. Gen. Imboden, who was near Harrisonburg, was apprised of thi served his time in camp Chase. Instead of keeping on to Staunton, as was expected, the enemy crossed over to Huntersville, the county seat of Pocahontas, and Col. Jackson, who had been stationed there, after some skirmishing, fell back to the Warm Springs. On Monday morning this place was thrown into considerable excitement know that even men who have seemed slow before proved their true pluck on Monday. The war is evidently toning up our whole people. Yesterday news came that Jackson, after a skirmish, had fallen back, leaving the Warm Springs in the enemy's hands. It was thought they were making for Milboro. The Western train came down crow
