Ready for action. --The Jackson Guard, Capt. Hiram B. Dickinson, (or the majority of them,) being ready for action, will start in a few days to join the Wise Legion. The company is named after Mr. Jackson who was murdered in Alexandria while attempting to prevent the larceny of a portion of his property by the chief of the Ellsworth zouaver, on the entry of that band of assassins in Alexandria. The standard of Gen. Wise is now raised in the West, and, as a Southern contemporary says-- "We expect to hear soon of the best and most brilliant work that will be done during the war, should the enemy meet him, from the column under command of the fiery and impetuous Gov. Wise. He is the right sort of a man for the work before him — hard fighting and plenty of it. His tireless energy, his restless ardor, his impulsiveness, are the very qualities to make a great warrior, and just what are required now in Virginia. In war nothing can be done too quickly, after it is determined o
arms," the following account of what old-fashioned rifles can do, from an Englishman's description of the battle of New Orleans: It was a strange sight — that long range of cotton bales — a new material for breastworks --with the crowd of human beings behind, their heads only visible above the lines of defence. We could distinctly see their long rifles lying over the bales, and the battery of Gen. Coffee directly in front, with its great mouth gaping towards us, and the position of Gen. Jackson, with his staff around him.--But what attracted our attention most, was the figure of a tall man standing on the breast-works, dressed in linsey-woolsey, with buck-skin leggings, and a broad-brimmed felt hat, that fell around his face, almost concealing his features. He was standing in one of those picturesque and graceful attitudes peculiar to those natural man-dwellers in the forest. The body rested on the left leg, and swayed with a curved line upwards; the right arm was extended, th
, that a considerable force of Confederates were at Camp. Walker, that Gen. Price, with 1,000 Missourians, who were poorly armed, was within thirty miles, and Gov. Jackson, with 1,500 men, within eighty miles of that point. The Federal forces marching for the State line, in pursuit of Gov. Jackson, number 3,000, and are said to Gov. Jackson, number 3,000, and are said to be well armed.--It appears that the Federal troops are advancing on the State line at two points. The one from Springfield, Mo., towards Fayetteville, and the other toward Camp Walker, by way of Granby. The Missourians appear to give way and let these troops pass without resistance. The State is now completely overrun like Maryresistance. The State is now completely overrun like Maryland. Gov. Jackson is deposed by the military despots, and a new Governor set up in his place, by the name of Price, not ex-Governor Price, now Major Price. We think that if they attempt to invade Arkansas, they will find sharp resistance.-- Memphis Appeal, 7th inst.
th increasing numbers, to form a junction with the State troops, now more than six thousand strong at one point. Second. At Pocahontas, Arkansas, six thousand Arkansas troops were encamped, en route for Missouri, with all necessary equipments. Third. In Stoddard county. Missouri, 4,000 State troops are encamped for the war. Some ten or fifteen regiments of men are moving for Missouri from Tennessee, Mississippi and Louisiana, in addition to those already mentioned. Fourth. Governor Jackson will have in less than twenty days a well appointed army of nearly 50,000 men, before whom the invaders of our people will be driven like wild beasts from their lair. Added to this enumeration of military forces, three out of every five of the able bodied men of Missouri are ready, and only wanting one favorable moment to assume the character of the avengers of an insulted and polluted State. Let the Republican copy these statements into its lying sheet ! We do not hesitate to aff
A move in the right direction. --Governor Pettus, of Mississippi, has issued a proclamation, calling on the State and county officers to collect up all the arms, rifles and shot guns, new or old, in or out of order, and send them to Jackson, the capital of the State, where they may be repaired and hold in readiness for the use of the soldiers. He also notifies all citizens to arm themselves with double-barrel shot guns and hold themselves in readiness at an hour's notice. By these means the State will be in possession of a large quantity of good arms that might otherwise be useless. We hope the proper authorities will follow up the move of Governor Pettus.
General R. F. Butler. Since the death of Winthrop, the redoubtable General has taken as his aid and chief counsellor a negro named Jackson, who represents himself as an escaped convict from Yorktown. It will be amusing if the negro prove too smart for the Massachusetts lawyer, and lead him into another trap. Yorktown.
