Miss Glenn has been occupying a posi

a vear or more. Some months since
being attacked with the disease from
which she is now suffering, she re
signed her position in the Mint and
came to Jackson on a visit; change
of climate and rest from the sedentary
life she had been leading made a mark

she returned to New Orleans and re

she was taken suddenly worse, and alter

Miss Glenn is a voting ladv of about

true womanliness of character and ear

honest desire to gain her own livelihood
by the labor of her own hands made her

one 1711 a. m Annual B rmon, by Rev.
FellX. Hill, New Orleans
James Smith. 4
Among the names of gentlemen par
ticipating in the proceedings of the
Southern Historical Society, at Nash
ville, last week, vre noticed! that of
"Hon. .lames Smith, of Glasgow, Scot
land." We have reason to believe that
this is our ante helium townsman, who
hopes to slip in upon his relatives and
old friends here without, notice. He had
left home for a six weeks recreati n, and
for perhaps his butt visit to Mississippi,
where he lived and labored in his early
manhood. Ho is on terms of great in
timacy with Ex-President Davis, and
doubtless expected to meet him in Nash
ville, and being disappointed thereat, we
presume Mr. Smith is now enjoying
himself at Beauvoir,
Should Mr. Smith visit Jackson, he
cannot escape some sort of a public
demonstration that will show the esteem
in which be is held here by the old citi
sens, and by a generation of young peo
pie who have heard of bis good deed'
and who have rejoiced at his success in
life. We do not know when Mr. Smith
came to Jackson, but for a score or more
of years prior to the war, bis namewaa
prominent in business, fraternity and
social circles. He was one of the charter
members of Jackson Fire Company, No
1, organized May 1st, 1S39, and of his as
suciates only a few survive Messrs. 0
H. Manship, John Sharp, II. B. Evans
James Black, and perhaps others.
Mr. Smith returned to Scotland in
1865. His younger brother, Robert A
Smith, (who was afterward the gallant
Colonel of the Tenth Mississippi regi
ment, and who was killed at Mum fords
villo), continued the business of stoves
hardware, etc., on the premises now oc
capied by Mr. Isydore Strauss. Mr
Smith sold this property after the war
and appropriated the proceeds to the
public schools of Jackson.
On the breaking out of the war, Mr
Smith invested largely in Confederate
bonds, and by his purse and jwn gave
material aid to the cause, tie sent a
six-pounder brass piece and twenty-live
Belgium ritles to Jackson. The beautiful
granite shaft that marks in our cemetery
the resting place of his gallant brother,
was shipped by him from Glasgow. At
the recent re-union of the Presbyterian
congregation in this city, be remembered
the "auld kirk" with a fifty-pound ster
ling draft. Mr. Smith ranks among the
millionaires of Glasgow, but ho is now,
as he was forty years ago, one of the
plainest and most unassuming of men.
Ile visited this country in 18.VS or 1859,
and was shipwrecked on tho Arctic, and
the basket in which he floated until
picked up by a passing stenmer, the
Cambria, occupies a place of honor in
his parlor. He is an uncle of Mrs. O. L.
Gaston, and one of her daughters bears
the name of the vessel that saved his
A Teacher s Tribnte.
Iter. Dr. Bottdebnsh being called on at the banal
MR. Uno. H. I'oitTKR, by the officiating minis
ter to make some remarks touching the life anil
hsraettt of the deceased, said: That owing to
tho intimate and Interesting association which had
isie:i between the Seer departed friend and him
self he occupied tiio place of a mourner rather than
that of one called upon to speak words ol coinlort
to others.
He said it was useless for him to speak of th
ihle traits of character of this young man to thorn,
among whom he hail been reared. His manner of
life from his early childhood up was well and favor
ably known to them all, and needed no comment
to augment bis virtues in their estimation, But
he said, ho was there to speak of what he had ol
served in the life of his young frleud and pupil as
it appeared to those who knew him at a distance
and had soon learned to regard him as a youth who
was in every every respect worthy of their ea
and confidence. If it he true that we do not know
uien until we kuow how they are accustomed to act
n iiiuows mat our estimate ol tlicir character is to
determined by their conduct at home and
abroad. If we know what their lives have been at
home, and then learn their conduct when removed
from Uiose restraints, and tender associations which
were calculated to keep them in the paths of recti
lude. wc have the. test of character.

and abroad, of a purely unselfish disposition and
ourse oi coiintict which snowisi mat lie was aeiu

loulit as to how he would art in any case wh
principle or a sense5 of right was involved. Ai
student he was diligent and faithful in tho di
Ohafge of his duties. As a member of It
College, his influence was always on the sdc
of good order and of truth and justice, and y

was highly esteemed by the citizens, honored
bis Instructors and beloved by his companions.
youth could have more fully met all the rciutri
mcnt.s of being a reliable and useful man. The
Doctor then spoke of seeing him for the last time
Nashville, where he hail secured for himself tin
same good name which had been so universally
awarded him in his own .Slate. Wherever ho was
known his name was tho synonym for whatever
was manly in iH-aring, chaste and prudent ill con
duct After speaking of bis fidelity to his young friends
and associates ut college and entreating them to Im
itate his example and to cherish his virtue.., he con
cluded with this appropriate exhortation of the
apostle's! " Finally, brethren, whatsoever things
arc true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever
things arc just, whatsover things arc pure, whatso
ever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good
report; if there be any virtue, and It there be any
praise, think of these things." For these things
may truly be said of him to whose memory you
have paid your last tribute of respect.
