Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 1. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Book notices. (search)
illustration is furnished of the stubborn fact that one cannot thoroughly know a country by a hasty trip through it. Life of Stonewall Jackson. By Miss Sarah Nicholas Randolph. The publishers (Lippincott & Co.) have sent us, through Woodhouse & Parham, Richmond, a copy of this new life of the great Confederate chieftain. Having read Miss Randolph's Domestic life of Jefferson--one of the most charming books we ever read — we were prepared for an entertaining biography of Jackson, and our expectations have been more than realized. It is really a delightfully told story of the deeds of our hero, and a vivid portrayal of his private character, a book which we would be glad to see widely circulated. And having said thus much in commendation of the book, it is no harm for us to add our regrets that Miss Randolph has followed others into several historic inaccuracies, and that she has allowed herself to be deceived into copying and endorsing the ridiculous story of General R

designate the means by which a State may be held within the Union when those powers are employed for her injury and the impairment of her equality as a member of that Union—an equality guaranteed by the whole tenor and spirit of the Constitution. That the power to coerce States under any circumstances was never intended to be invested in the general government, is conclusively settled by the action of the constitutional convention of 1787, when a scheme of government was introduced by Mr. Randolph, which, among other provisions, proposed to invest Congress with the power to call forth the force of the Union against any member of the Union failing to fulfill its duty under the articles thereof. George Mason, who may justly be termed the prophet statesman of his day, argued that punishment could not, in the nature of things, be executed on the States collectively. Listen to another great Virginian, upon whom was conferred the proud title of father of the Constitution, a union of t

but one that revolutionized the naval warfare of all nations and became the terror of the seas, was fashioned out of old hulks or picked up in foreign places; see how a world in arms was held at bay by a people and a soldiery whom he held together with an iron will and hurled like a flaming thunderbolt at their foes. The Cabinet of Jefferson Davis. In his Cabinet he gathered the foremost civilians of the land— Toombs, Hunter, Benjamin, Bragg, Watts, Davis, Memminger, Trenholm, Walker, Randolph, Seddon, Breckenridge, Mallory, Reagan. Good men and true were these, regardful of every duty. His Generals and his armies. To the leadership of his soldiers whom did he delegate? If some Messioner could throw upon the canvas Jefferson Davis in the midst of those chiefs whom he created, what grander knighthood could history assemble? Robert E. Lee, Albert Sidney Johnston, Joseph E. Johnston, G. T. Beauregard, Samuel Cooper, and Braxton Bragg were generals of the full rank. Sto
