Tb* Richmond IJulUfim, opealctng of Stonewall Jackson, says Possibly prejudice may exist in their minds (those of loyal people) against Gen. Jackson—a prejudice growing out of the fact that he drew the sword in the late war against the United States." Well, yea, we should think it not un likely. We arc not inclined to think as well of Gen. Stonewall Jackson, for instance, aa of our dead McPlierson, or Mitchell, or Wadmrorth, or Rear* or Reno, or Reynolds, or Rice, or 8ill, or Mansfield, or Lyon. Any one of them is his superior iu troe manli ness of character. Indeed, we are so prejudiced" that we value more highly the memory of the lowest pri vate who died under tbe flag of tbe Union than we do that of a man who, ednrated at his country's expense, us ed the training he thus received in a Tain attempt to humiliate lite flag which he had sworn to honor and op hold, and to destroy the country to which ho had sworn to bear faithful allegiance. If men are to be honored ,|OIM of *J course Jackson will be highly esteem ed but if the use they hare made of their energy is to be inquired into, tben Jackson will get admiration, but not esteem.

Everything has teen offered for their acceptance, but they make no bid— they give 110 sign of hopeful life. The Government would be too happy to transfer into their keeping the civil power of the Southern States but they Bend out no representative men— Bobody but their old rnfeirs cume for ward in response to our call. What are they about Their day has dawn ed aud they seem to be asleep. From Virginia, for example, we sometimes hear that they get np a riot or kill a negro but where are their gatherings to consider the signs of the times, and to act imlependcutly, and if need le, in opposition to the ancient Lorda of the Lash A dreary silence reigns throughout tbe region the poor whites, broken only by the report of a musket afeot as a murdered freedinan falls. Everywhere wc hear that the ne groes are flocking to school tottling children, mothers with their babes at their breasts, workingmen after their day's toil is over, aged prtriarchs and white-headed grandames—all may be seen poring over their primers wherer erthe Teachers of the Freedmen's Aid Societies are stationed. They leuin with wonderful rapidiiy. This is the uniform report—from Louisana aud Virginia, from Tennessee and Carolinas. Their eagerneas to learn' h« t*cn described ilmort dfcJ ease. There is no checking it, no toa trolling it it is as ficroe as a fever at its flight." Meanwhile, neither tlie adnlt poor whites nor their children show any such propensities. Their stolid apathy not even the artillery of contending armies has dispelled. As they were in the bad old times, they are now in the holy era that has dawned on oar land. They are as lazy and listless, inert and abject as ever. Every ig norant class is a dangerous class and the history of the last generation and especially of tlie war, has shown how very daugt rous a people the poor whites sre. For, by their lack of in telligence, an oligarchy has ruled the South from time immemorial and wlten its time for rebellion came, they were driven, like sheep to tlie slaugh- ter» fight against every earthly in- terest of their claaa and nation. How profound the ignorance of tlie poor whites is, it required this war to expose it—and at the amazing immoralities that gathered around it. Everywhere adulterous miscegenation, incestuous marriages, indiscriminate and univer sal impurity were fnnd hand and hand with a stolid stupidity, a listless hope lessness, and a darkness of mind of which, happily, the North knows noth- not a resolution of which he could copy or spell out.

The constitution becomes enfeebled, and the child grows worse. The cause, perhaps, is never traced to over-crowded sleeping rooms, with out proper air but it is, nevertheless, the right one. An intelligent mother, having acquainted herself with tlie principles of ventilation, will not re tire to her own room for the night with out having provided a sufficiency of air for her own children in the same manner that she provides and regulates their night-covering or does any other requisite* for refreshing slumber. Sometimes, by judiciously lowering a window, and at other times by leaving a door wide open, this end tnay be at tained. In many houses the day and night nurseries communicate. When this is the case, the window of the farther room should be left open, and the door the* between the room likewise open.

George hastened on, too much exci ted to feel fatigue—too much agonized about Katie to notice that he had split his elegant French gaiters out at the sides. After three or four hours hard walk ing, lie began to think that something must be wrong. He ought to be ap pro iing tlie suburbs ot Margate.
