Church at Roanokc.
Roanokc Va., July 29.- A handsome
memorial window of Gen. Thomas
("Stonewall") Jackson was unveiled in
the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church
(negro), to-day. The window was
erected by the pastor, the Rev. I,. 1..

coining wholly from the negroes. The
exercises were largely attended by both
races, the Confederate camps of Roa
