to tie Earl of Longford, with an estate worth
30,u00¢ per anuum. The laurels which he
gained in France and ‘Spain, have withered

Tits office lie vesigned, and was
appointed a judge of one of the course of
Tennessee, which office he held until the
approach of the war to the southern states.
vt the rank of militia general, he can-
raenced his military career, against the In-

have been better adopted {or conducting a
~ war with this wily, fierce and untameable
race, than perhaps any person who ever
commanded against them. The rapidity
of his mniovements disconcerted all their
stratagemsy. and relying chiefly upon the
bayonet, the fury of his onset overwhelm
cd all opposition.
Early in Nov’r. last, when various move,
ments of the enemy indicated an attack on
Orledns; when from their extensive prepa-
rations, it is evident they intended a perma-
nent judgment at that important depot of
the western conatry, it. became necessary
‘or the government to provide an adequa‘e
force for its defence. Most fortunately for
that country, most happily for the safe
and glory of the U. Ssates, gen. Jackson
was selected to command this force. His
late memorable repulse of the brave and
determined enemy, has not perhaps an e-
qual in all history. i
In dwelling with found remet Hethnce,
as every American must, on $heharacter
of gen. Jackson, two circumstances are
particularly worthy of notice
the extrzordinary faculty
The first is
of uniting so
thoroughly in himself the confidence of e-
very class of people under his con mund—*
Americans, French and Spanish—bjack
and white-+regulars, volunteers, mititia
and privates—-and pouring into this heter-
ogencus mass the whole enthusiasm of his
OwWh heroic spirit
i The other cirdu mstance
is, his unaficcred modesty. By illiant as
have been his successes, he speaks of them
as of b reacts of duty; praises his officers
his men, nay, the enétmy—all byt himself,

General Jackson is about fiftyifive years
of age, although health aud a vigerous
constitution give him the appearance of
youth. In person he is tall and thin, with
features exprssive of his character, indica-
ting firmness, penetrating and decision. i
