The Martyr Jackson. --We find the following notice of this heroic man, from the pen of a former townsman, Rev. George W. Carter, in the New Orleans Delta. It be seen by Dr. Carter's letter that it was not a sudden impulse that prompted Jackson to do what he did, but in furtherance of a deliberately-formed purpose. Says. fund, to be sent to Virginia for the relief of the widow and orphans of Mr. James W. Jackson, who lost his life in defence of his country's flag, after slaying Col. Ellsworth. I knew Mr. Jackson personally, and was a guest in his hotel only a few days since. In killing Ellsworth he only executed a purpose previously formedpted it, though he was backed by all the Black Republicans in Washington. Jackson was a generous, fearless man, and deserves a monument. His widow and four chit Mr. Moore, who was originally from the neighborhood of Alexandria and knew Mr. Jackson and his friends, is in all respects the person to undertake this matter.
