ts. Intellectually, morally, and physically, he was every inch a man. In that highest style of man, the Christian, he was a model of consistency and zeal, and his assiduous labors as a Sunday School teacher from the time he was at the University, until his death, bore witness at once to the earnestness and humility of his character. At the commencement of the present war, Mr. Morrison was appointed Captain in the Quartermaster's Department, at the request of Col. Ewell, President of William and Mary where he rendered very active services, and was afterwards appointed 2d Captain of Ordnance at the special request of General Magruder, which post he was filling with admirable ability, when he was struck down by disease in the prime of his noble and useful life.
