Of all the heroes who have laid
down their live in modern tioics,
in defense of what Uicy consider
ed right, the record of none is so
pure, so resplendent, and so love
ly as that of "Stonewall Jackson."
His virtues disarmed his enemies
of. hatred, and his bravery won
their admiration ; his military skill
and genius entranced thum ; while
among his friends and compan
ons in arms be was adored for
his kindness of heart, and his gen
tle, christian, and unaHsuming
manner. His strategy, was the
wonder and speculation of the
world ; his movements the terror
of his enemies; and his blows
were decisive and always crush
ing. He seemed to move in all
his great achievements as if under
the direct influence of inspiration.
Thero was no possible chance to
counteract his plans, for they were
such as no other mind could con
ceive, and were invariably those
which brought victory and suc
cess to crown his banner, lie
was adored at home, admired and
feared abroad. But one night, in
the gloom and stillness of dark
ness, the death angel called hiai
away from earth to take his abode
among the purest and brightest
of beings. Then it was that a
wail went up from tho bleeding
heart of the struggling and well
nigh crushed Confederacy. That
heart was already sorely lacerated
and torn at a knowledge of its
muuy other sorrows and misfor
tunes, and it was III prepared to
receive the sad tidings which an
nounced that tho loved had fought
his last battle, and was then sleep
ing his last sleep, aud that from
that timo forth the christian, sol

cypress, and none should keep
watch while he slept save the
twinkling stars. It la not at tll
surprising that ho should be es
teemed and ndmlrod at the North.
The truly great lovo and respect
the groat wherever found, aud
that "Stonewall'' Jackson was
great in every construction of tho
term is unquestioned. That he
was conscientious and acting sole
ly from a conviction of duty none
have ever dared gainsay. Ho
tony lit becausa his sense of duty
commanded him to do so ; he link
ed his fortunes with the South be
cause his great warm heart told
him 'twas there he owed his alle
giance. And nobly did he per
form his duty. Ho is swept away
from earth but never from memo
ry; an admiring people will point
to him through all ages ; and his
tory will bedeck her brightest
pago in commemoration of his
virtues aud his shining deeds.
Tho Federal Gatvcrntticiit has
expended its millions of public
money in testimony to tho memo
ry of the Union dead; monumen
tal marble shafts mark the last
homo of him whose face i-t turned
towards the roots of the daises
which bloom, blossom mid shed
ferfunic above the earth which en
velopes him. Naliouul cemete
ries are supported, eared for and
beautified all over tholand. The
liberal hand of the nation has
given freely for those who
gave their lives for the Union :
but upon t!l' Other liiiihl llie
soldier dcvul -f the Son'li are hid
away beneath tho eod over which
the wild briar locks its mani
fold anna. The nimble, to their
memory, Is alono In tho hearts or
their countrymen. At one time
it was treason for friends to gath
er about and shed-tears above the
graves of the dead Soutlff i n sol
diers. The ftoody corpse of Al
bert Sydney Johnson was insult
ed by Federal soldiery when it
was seeling a chance to bo hid
away in the" soil of that State
which he had so much loved in
life, and this atrocity was sustain
ed by tho sentiment at tho North.
But thank God that feeling is now
wearing away. Horace Greely,
abused, ridiculed and hated, has,
in his eccentric, yet kind hearted
and generous manner, done much
towards wearing awny these as
polities. We can never learn to
love such a man, but bis magnan
imity and kindness of heart has
done much towards winning the
admiration " of the Southern
Deople.' Mr. Greely' ' admired
General Jackson; ever wrote of
him as be deserved to he written !
of, the finished scholar, the pol
ished gentleman, the military ge
nius and the christian. We couple
the names of Horace Greely and
those of "Stonewall" Jackson on
this occasion from the following
cause :
An effort is being made to raise
a monument to the memory of
General Jackson, at the Virginia
jli'ilary Institute, in which college
General Jackson was a professor
for many years. It will require
about fifty thousand, dollars to
defray the necessary expenso. To
raise this some kind wetltliy gem
tlcinen in New York city, have
subscribed about ten thousand dol
lars. Tho name of Horace Greely is
on the list. This is the way in
which to reconstruct. This is the
only way to wipe out the bitter
recollections of the past. To the
North has been accorded victory;
to theSotith humiliation and defeat.
Where is the philanthropy of which
that land is so wont to prate ? Wo
have failed to see it in tho action
of Congress, but it is shown lu
the disinterested kindness of such
men as Horace Greeley, as shown
iu this act and many others which
might be enumerated. In Phlla
delphiathe sum of Ave thousand
dollars has been subscribed

Thebb is an outrageous crime
perpetrated dally in this city,
to which we desire to call the at
tention of tho police If they are
uot already fully aware of tho ex
tent of its practice. We refer to
the cxhorbitant charges mado by
hackmeu. The regular price al
lowed Is fifty ccuts for each pas
senger to any part of the city;
double price after night. All over
this is an extortion, and there is an
ordinance Which attaches a punish
ment for a charge greater than this
Yet strangers are daily, made to
payjdoublc,and vory often ton times
more than tho amount allowed.
Such extortion will bring discredit
upon the city and injure it to a very
great extent. Not a groat while since
we desired to fake passsage on the
early morning train ;by arraugomcnt
a backman came for us. For this
service he took eight dollars out of
a ten dollar bill given him to
change, and when remonstrated
with refused lo restore a part of it,
aud threatened to call the polico if
we annoyed him any longer. Ho
was a stranger and did not know
us. He i-upposid that wo wore
compelled to leave ou that train
not to return, and that therefore
ho would be safe ; but learning that
wo were a residcut of this city ho
finally concluded to restore a reas
onable sharo of tho money.
Strangers, however, arc fleeced in
this manner every day, and wc
demand that .the police causo it to
bo stopped. . -
