Dr. Hunt or McGuire, modical direc? tor of General Stonewall Jackson's Corps delivered on interesting address at the Confederate Camp dinner, in New York. Dr. McGuire told many incidents of General Jackson on tho battlefield, the most interesting and dramatic of which were tho following: "At Malvern Hill, when a portion of our army wan beaten and to some ex? tent demoralized, Hill and E*ell and Karly came to tell him that tLey could make no resistance if McCellan attack? ed them in tbe morning, lt was diffi? cult to wake General Jackson, as ht was exhausted and very sound asleep I tried it niyself, and after many efforts partly succeeded. When he was mach to understand what was wau ted, hi taid : "McCellan and his army will bi t>one by daylight,' and went to sleej again. The generals thought him mac but thc prediction was true. "At Fredericksburg, after Burnside' repulse, he asked me how many lan dagos I had. I told him, and a?kei why he wanted to know. Ho said tba he wanted to have a pioie of whit cloth to tio on each man's arm so tha Ids soldiers might recogn:ze each oth er inja night attack; and le usked t be allowed to make an attack au drive his foe into tho swollen river c capture him. Subsequent events den onshated that he knew the stato i things withiu the hostile line and would havo accomplished h purpose. General Leo with he' his consent, for tho reason that i often restrained him in like cases?1 would not put at so great a risk a army which tho South could tot ri place. <T cannot give you any instance illustration of the mental action 1 which be reaches his conclusion or cl vised tho combination which defeat his enemy, for Jackson took no oouni nave with his 'familiar,' the Genius War, and his God. Ho did hold o and only one, council of war. March 18G2, at Winchester, Jacks had in his small army lo^s that 5,0 mon, General Banks who was advai ing upon Winchester from Harpe Ferry and Charleston, had 30,000 s difTs. General Jackson repeato oflercd General Banks batt'o but at ter declined, and on the night tho 11th of Marali went into camp f milts hom Winchester, General Ja son sent for his oflieers and propo to mako a night attack, but the r. was not approved by the council. sent for thc officers a second tinio sc time later, and again urged thom agieo to mako then the attack but t agnin disapproved of the atompt. late in tho afternoon, we withd from Wiuchoster and marched to K town I rode with tlio General as left tho place, and aa we reach high point overlooking the town both turnod to look at Wiuchoster, evacuated and now loft to the in of tho Federal soldiers. I think a man may sometimes yield to c whelming emotion, and that I wa; terly overcome by tho fact that 1 leiwing idl that I had dear on ti But my emotion was arested bj look at Jackson. His faco was f blazing with tho tiro that was bur in him and I folt awed before Presently ho cried out willi a mn that was almost savage, 'lbat il last council of war I will eYO'1 1 And it was?his iii st and latt, '11 after ho held council in tho t chamber of his own heart, and a Instantaneous decision, aoso'ute, reliance, every action, every word played. His voice disp'ayed it in tlo. lt was not the peal of tho t pet, but the sharp crack of tho r sudden, imperative, resolute. ?'Jackson was always expocte oAftronia.. n* ta? rtan* hold his lines, but was alw-ys most dangerously aggrc.-sive. I hear.1 him once sa\; "We KMMiimet fail to drive tlio enemy f'ora lit position. He always fai's to drive os." But he wa* never content wi h the def- n^Ivc, low ever succssful or however exbausinjr. Intlie terribly destructive battle of Shaipatmrg he was looking all that tiny for (ho chance to make tho eoun tc r si roko. "He was nlwais calm and self-con? trolled. He never lost bil ba'ance for one moment. Af, the first Mana sas, when ho reached tho field and found our men under Bee and Bartow falling back?when the confusion was great? est and Bee, m dispair, cried out 'Tbey uro driving us Lack!' there v.as not tho slightest einoti n appatent about him. His thin lips wei e com? pressed aud bis eyes were ablaze when ho curtly caid: "Then, sir, wewill give them the bayonet!" "In tho very severe cngugement at Chantilly, fought during a heavy thun? der stoim, when the voice of the artil? lery' of heaven could scarcely be distin? guished from that of the ec erny, an aide carno up with a message from A.

There was always dan. ger and blood when bu began his tersi sentence with 'Give my compliments. "Jackson knew the value of the South ern volunteer better and sooner (as " believe) than any oilier of our grea leadeis. On this subject I once hean him say. 'The patriot volunteer fight ing fer country and his right, make the mot t reliabe soldier onearih.' "The first time 1 was under fire, th attempt to diagnose my feelings di not discover to mo anything.

MOUNT VERNON. e i 1 L lt d jr n> to n. us 10 ia lc. tr re e-e Ve art ed io, Bl? ast R During the Civil War there waa only ono spot in all our now United States where soldiers cf both armies could meet on common ground as friends, not foemen, as brothers and gons of one father, the "Father of His Country." That spot waa Mount Vernon. A "truce of God" prevailed throughout the broad acres that contained the home and tomb of "Washington. "Whether hunted by theirj enemy or drawn hither by the same reverent in i-piration that attracts visitors to^lount "V ernon from every part of the riabit able globe, wearers of the blue and the gray were squally welcome. The only restriction placed upon their cornirg was the servants'request that they leave th<?ir arms at whatever point they en? tered the grounts, sometimes at the old porter's lodge, three-quarters of a mils away. At "Washington's tomb unarmod pick? ets of the South and North frequently met during lhe years of tbe "great con? flict." Sacred, however, aa thia home of peace is, it is to the women of the United St at as, and to them alone, that we owe the purchase and preservation of Washington's home, and only their loving care has made possible the past and present restoration ot this fine old type of the colonial mansion of a cen? tury and a half ago. The high privi? lege and happiness of visiting thia housa and grounds, with all their varied and i eligible memorials so intimately asso? ciated with the life and character of the immortal Washington, the Araericin people owe to the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association of the Union.

Wool from limestone is the latest, according to the Chicago Chronicle. C. C. Hall, chemist for the Union Stael Company, at Alexandria, Ind., han just applied for patents upon a proceaa whereby he is enabled to make the softest, whitest wool from the flintiest, roughest limestone. The remarkable character of the in? vention ia better appreciated when it is i-anl that a firm in Boston, one of the beat known wool weavers in the country, is making experiments in converting this wool into clothing. Water has no eft ec t upon this arti? ficial wool, and fire will not harm it Another point in its favor as a wool for winter clothing lies in the fact ttiat it is one of the best non-conductors known. It is impervious to heat and cold, and for that rea-on would make most de? sirable underclothing for Klondikers. It could not be worn in summer, aa it would retain all of the heat of the body, and this would be intolerable. But the greatest point in favor of wool made from rock lies in the claim that it will outwear the sheep product.
