• 1 25

The book before us is a well written and juliciously arranged biography of the ilustrious hero and patriot, whose services to his country and to mankind are second only to those of Washington. At this crisis in our history, it cannot fail to be received with favor by the communi:y. Gen. Jackson, in his life-time, was among the noblest of patriots, looking only to the welfare, honor, and glory of his beloved country. It was his privilege to preside over the destinies of the nation at a crisis not unlike the present; and it was his voice, sounding like a trumpet through the land, that awakened the patriotism or his countrymen and saved the Union. This book comes now like a voice from the grave of the mighty dead, warning his countrymen of peril, and invoking them to fraternity and union. In addition to the biographical sketch written by the auibor, the book also contains judicious selections from tho State Papers of Gen. Jackson, and the enlogies upon the illustrious soldier and statesman, delivered by Mr. Lancroft aml Dr. Bethune. I'rom this eulogy of Mr. Bancroft we make the following beautiful and eloquent extrach, which will not bo deemed in. appropriate at the present time.

The book has been gotten up in a style creditable to the American press.-Wash. inglon Union.

NOTICES OF THE PRESS. The work is characterized by good taste and judgment.
