Ho treated his mllitia with the utmost harshness, but they worshipped hlm and rendored such service for hlm as no othor general ever got out of them. Ile was the terror of his superlors in Washington, his only idea of discipline being the enforcement of his own wlll against thoso above hlm ns well as those under hlm; but ho had such a hold on tho people by reason of his strmgth of sharacter, his integrity, and his great deeds, that no one dared to call hlm to account for any of his acts. His flghting was always against Indians, exeept ln his one brief cam paign at Now Orleans; the theatre of thls campalgn was a six-milo plot, where there was no opportunlty for sinitegy or grand tactics, or the exor clse of any of tho qunllties of general shlp oxcopt one; he selected and fortlfiod a posltion about a thousand yards long, ono flanlc on tho river and tho othor on a swamp, and the onemy dushed hlmself to pieces against it. But his enemy was the best regular troops in Europe, who had defeated the plans of Napoleon in Spain. Jack son crushed them, and this one fact blots out all of his mistakes and leaves hlm unperlshable fame as a great sol dior. Scribner's Magazine.
