HO was it said, "The Union must nml shall bo pie nerved ?" Old Hickory, of course. Kvery schoolboy will tell you tlint. And now a num ber of patriotic southern women are saying in sub stance, "Tho Her mitage, tho home of Old Hickory, must uiul shall bo pro se rvwl." Tho general assembly of tho state of Ten nessee has assigned to tho enro or tho La dies' Hermitage association of Nashville tho house and tomb of General Jackson and twenty-live surrounding acres, to im prove and pieserve in lasting memory of tho hero of New Orleans. This property was purchased by tho state years ago from the adopted sou of Gcnernl Jackson, with the proviso that his wifo re main there (luring her life. Mrs. Jackion died there three years ago, when the state handed over tho historic mansion to the Hermitage association. Colonel Jackson, son of Old Hickory's adopted son. still lives there, and will doso until tho association cither buys the furni ture and relics from him or gives up its op tion of $17,500 on them. This option has two years moio to run, and the gentlewomen who arc Interested in tho conservation of this historic spot are working heart and hand to save the grand old placo and preserve it, not alono for the state of Tennessee, but, like Mount Ver non, for a Mecca for patriotic Americans. It was tho suggestion of Governor Hubert L. Taylor, of Tennessee, that the privileges of the association should bo extended to every citizen of America. "Andrew Jack son's illustrious name," said tho governor, "belongs not to one state, but to the entire nation, and all the people should havo equal privilege in becoming participants in this noble work, and whilo Tennessee, I believe, stands alone among the slates in having purchased and preserved for public use the manor of a distinguished son, she recog nizes the properly right of tho nation in his memory, and gladly surrenders to the keeping of the whole peoplo tho sacred duty and privilege of canug for and per petuating it." The indifference of the American public to tho demolition of historic houses is pro verbial. One by one these landmarks are swept away by the vandal progress. It is really amazing that there is not a round liouso or a grain elevator at Mouut Vernon and a row of apartment houses on the Alexander Hamilton estate. The "bravo old house" near Nashville, with its appurtenances and relics, should be of inestimable value to the country. It is the ambition of the iisMxiiation to make it a national museum, which shall invite pilgrims from north and south. The mansion is a superb specimen of Co lonial architecture-, witli its great pillars, broad porticos and hospitable rooms. Grand old trees shade it, and their boughs droop across the balconies where ouce tho gentle Hachel Jackson walked. Indeed, the lender melancholy of this fair woman's life .seems iudissolubly blended witli every nook and comer of the Hermit age, tho homo to which sho was devoted, and from which destiny decreed she should uot wander far. Tho story of Rachel Jackson's life is a romance She was a wonderfully beauti ful woman, with a lovely disposition and deep personal piety. In her youth sho con tracted an unfortunate marriage with a mau her iuferior in every respect, and from whom sho was divorced. The love of Gen eral Jackson for his sweet wife amounted to idolatry, and during his momentous career ho never escaped from tho influence of her personality, lie wore her miniature on Ills heart till his death, and no matter what his cares or pleasures, lie always communed with her portrait and her Bible at tho close oT each busy day. Mrs. Jackson cared very little for tho honors of this world and longed for noth ing ho much as the timo when her husband would finish with politics, for ho assured her that when that timo came and otdy then could he become a Christian. Here is a story illustrative of the great moral influence Mrs. Jackson hold over her hus band: Old Hickory was an adept in profanity. When occasion required ho could paralyze his listeners by the breadth aud variety of his swearing. It was during uu oxciting political campaign, and just after Mrs. Jackson had told a guest that she thought tho general was disposed to bo religious, and that but for tho coining presidential election slio believed would join tliochurch, when ho entered tho rooiu with an opposi tion newspaper iu his hand, like Saul breathing out threatcnings and slaughter, interspersed with delightfully picturesque oaths. He sworo until ho was nearly out of breath, when his gentle wifo approached him and looking him squarely in tho fnce said simply, "Mr. Jackson." Tho gteat general who bad conquered everything that had come his way was subdued at onco and ceased his profanity. Big Muddy I Big Muddy! Big Muddy EGAN! EGAN! EGAN! When Jackson was elected president his wife said to tliosu about her: "For Mr. Jackson's Rako I am glad; for my own I never wished it. I would rather be a door keeper in the house of my God than to dwell In that palace in Washington." Tliero is a popular story thai It was while making preparations for her departure from tho Hermitage that this gentle soul received the rude shock which caused her death. Shu was like a mother to every wi vant on the e'tate, anil wishing to leave all comfortable tor the winter, made a trip into Xoxhvlllc .0 pin chase supplies and rlothiug for those who were dependent on her. Weary from her shopping, she went into the parlor of a hot.ol to lest while she waited for the finally coach to entry her back to the Hermitage. Suddenly she heard her name spoken in an adjoining room, mid her character as sailed in terms of baso and cruel calumny, For some time sho snt there motionless, listening to th accusations against herself, which hail been circulated during tho cam paign and which hcrehivalric husband had carefully kept from her knowledge. Tho popular tradition adds that she was soon after seized with spasmodic disease of tho heart. Of this account tho historians only say that, it is not certainly proved, and Par ton adds that sho had known of tho slnn- ders against her long before the fatal soU- uro on Dee. IT, IJfcJS. Tho inscription upon the tomb tells you Hero lie tho reiimlunof Mrs. HttcholJacksou. wifo of President Jackson, who died the 1 of December, ISM. aged slxty-ono jcars. Hcriaco was fair, her person pleasing, her temper aud ible, her hcnrlkiml. Shodollghted In rellovlng tho wnntsof her fellow crcaturcs.uud cultivated that iliviuo pleasmo by tho most liberal and unpretending methods. To tho poor she was a benefactor; to tho rich an example; to tho wretched a comforter; to tho prosperous an or nament. Her piety went hand in hand with hur benuvoleuee, aud sho thanked her Creator for being permitted to do eood, A being so gcutloundso virtuous slander might wound, but could not dishonor; even Death, when ho boro her from the arms of her husband, could but tiansport her to tho bosom of her God. And if at midnight you could walk through the old mansion I doubt not you would sec another lovely ghost flitting through the great rooms beautiful ICtnlly Donelson, the niece of Rachel Jackson and mistress of the White House during her uncle's administration. Kinily Donelson strongly resembled Mary Queen or Scots and possessed much of the fascination of the White Hose of Scotland. The gown she wore at the first inauguration ball is one of the piecious relics. It is of amber satin, brocaded with violets and trimmed with pearls and lace. It was .1 present from the general, and even at that day was described at great length in every newspaper in the country. And it is this old mansion, so filled with historic and gentle associations, that tho Nashvillo ladies are working vigorously to save fiom the band of the spoiler. They are now making preparations 011 a grand scale for a Colonial ball or reception at the Ponce de Leon, St. Augustine, iu March, nt which many unique and interesting features will bo introduced. General and Mrs. Jackson, the cabinet and foreign ministers of his administration and their wives will be personated by prominent so ciety people of Nashville. The" lady who Is to personate .Mrs. Jackson will wear arti cles of dress which belonged to the gen eral's wife and also the jewels presented to her by the people of New Orleans. The ball will be opened with a minuet and closed with an old fashioned Virginia reel. Many of tho most valuable relics will be taken from the Hermhage to exhibit at this ball, and one of the attractions will bo the general's old body servant, an aged negro who never wearies talking of the glory of bis master. Jackson's sword, pre sented by tho citizens of New Orleans, will be carried by tho gentleman who person ates him.

There is a marvelous collection of suufTbocs, one of which belonged to Lafayette and was presented by himself. There is. a wilder ness of curios, medals, coins, pipes and swords. There is all the beautiful old mahogany, the rosewood, tho inothor-of-penrl, the gilt and the damask of those days. Theroaro pitchers, vases, lamps, andirons, gilt and si . vcreandelabrutns which would send n eon noisseur wild with delight, beautiful clocks and statuettes, silver servers and old mir rors, candlesticks, china and silver galore, Theteis a silver dish which belonged to Decatur, a letter from Jofl'erson, un ex quisite porcelain miniature of Mrs. Da Witt Clinton presented by herself and ac companied by a letter couched in the ro mantic language of that day, an armchair presented by Mrs. Chief Justice Taney, George Washington's office chair, a small panel from the floor of Napoleon's room at IOiigwcHxl, St. Helena, a piece of candle found in Cornwallis' tent at the surrender of Yorktown and sent to Jackson with the request that he light it upon every recur ring 8th of January, and a penholder made from a jiortion of the tree under which Washington first unsheathed his sword in defense of American liberty. The general's state coach and his car riage made of n poitiou of the old ship Constitution are also preserved. It Is im passible to give 1111 adequate idea of the extent and value of these relics, which but tor the energy of a few southern women would have ueen scattered to the four cor ners of the globe. And it is to pieserve them enshrined iu their fitting place that these women ask the assistance of all pa triot ic Americans. KlilTll Skssioxs TUTPKIl. The World is Better for It.

A startling easo of this inability of tho European tourist was related tho other night in a prominent club by a swell visitor from aci"oss tho herring pond. "Deucedly queer girls you havo in San Francisco," said tho loyal subject of Victoria. "How so?" "1 was out in Pnwk this morning, you know, and I saw two deucedly pretty and modest looking girls riding bicycles up a bill, you know, and thoy looked so jolly and innocent that I couldn't help remarking, 'Voiy hiiwrd work, ladies.' and what do you think was tho replv'f" "What?"
