Under their joint curative influence the worst wounds or ulcers assume a more healthy character, and shortly begin to fill up or contract and soundly heal. EXTRACT OF MEAT.—So much having been written about cheap food for the people, it is scarcely necessary to draw attention to the invaluable extract of meat by Liehig's process, which, first introduced as a. medicinal agent, is now so extensively used in the kitchen. We cannot imagine housekeepers making soup or beef-tea by the old, tedious, and expensive method, while with this extract they can prepare soup equally nice and far more digestible in a moment. The genuine extract is manu- factured in enormous quantities from cattle of English breed, on the establishments of R. Tooth, Esq, of fcsyd- jjtiey, Australia, and is now sold at a reasonable price in jars with very convenient stoppers. The scientific men speak highly of Tooth's extract. Dr. Richter, of Dres- den, a man of no mean attainments, describes it as ex quisle;' at the same time, it is ell approved by Dr W. A, Miller, of King's College, before being issued for sale We should recommend a trial of it. Messrs Coleman and Co., of St. Marv-at-Hill, are the consignees, but it is sold in nearly every grocer's and chemist's shop in I town and country.— the Standard, Sept. 2.
A NOVEL NIGHT ATTACK. Mr Pollard, in an article on Stonewall Jackson, published in Putnam's Monthly for December, states that the General once recommended a night attack to be made by assailants stripped naked and armed with bowie knives, suggesting that the novelty and terror of such an apparition would paralyze the enemy." Southern papers have repudiated the statement as a slander upon the memory of their hero. "A Virginian," writing to the New York limes, maintains that Mr Pol- lard, though not fully warranted in making this statement, had some ground for it, and then pro- ceeds to say :— The occasion referred to was immediately after the battle of Fredericksburg. On the night of the Ilth of December, 1862, that town was occupied by the enemy. The 12th was spent in mtkiug preparations for the battle on the 13th, the rc- suit of which is too well known to be detailed here: suffice it to say, that by dark on that day the enemy's troops, to the number of 60,000, torn, bleeding, and thoroughly disorganized, were crowd- ed in town. While thus situated, the Confederate chiefs held a council of war. As has been fre- quently asserted, and never till lately contradicted, General Lee stated that he thought the enemy would make another attack, not believing that they had suffered so severely, and were so broken up as was afterwards ascertained. To this opinion General Jackson disagreed, and suggested that the artillery of the 1st and 2nd Corps, his and Long- streets, should be collected upon the hills directly in front of the town and heavy firc he opened upon it, and that the men of his corps be stripped to the waist to distinguish them from the enemy, and under cover of the artillery fire, force their way into the town and bayonet al! who were not simi- larly attired. His corps was on the right and Longstreets's on the left. The men of the latter corps were not to be stripped nor to participate in the attack, but were to protect the artillery and prevent the enemy from escaping up the river and crossing at the lords. It has been asserted by officers high in authority, that the suggestion above mentioned was made and adopted, and that Jack- son especially stipulated that his troops should not be allowed to fire, but should use the bayonet. It is a well-authenticated fact that an attack upon the town was contemplated by our chie', and in fur- th ranee of the plan the artillery was placed upon th heights in front of the breastworks behind which they bad fought during tbeday's battle, with n tructicn to await a signal and then to open fire, upon the town, and to continue the fire until fur- ther orders, or until the yells of our troops should show that they were in town—in a position to be endangered by our fire. The infantry of the First Corps were posteJ to defend the artillery (it was afterwards told by men of the Second Corps that they had received orders to strip to the waist), but the signal (or the bombardment was never given, ai d orders came to retire within the breastworks, as the proposed a;tack had been given up by Gen. Lee, who feared that the numerous inhabitants re- maining in the town would suffer alike with the enemy. No pen can describe the horrors and butchery that would have attended that night bom- bardment and attack, as suggested by the dead hero, who believed that war meant lighting, a:id fighting meant killing." The town, wTiich in its best days did not, perhaps, contain more than 8,000 inhabitants, was crowded with irtillei-l,, I wftor- gons, and about 60,000 men, besides be wounded and non-combatants. The enemy quietly re- crossed the river on the night of the 15th, leaving the Confederates to rejoice over another barren victory. An examination of the town, afttr their departure, showed that the men had been so nu- merous that the houses were not sufficient to contain them, and that they bad torn down the outhouses and railir.gs, and broken up the furni- ture in order to make beds in the streets and yards. The writer of this communication has a most pro- found respect for the memory of General Stonewall Jackson, yet he does not believe with others that the assertion made by Mr Pollard, that the illus- trious here desired to make a night attack upon the enemy with his troops stripped, is a slander upon his memory but he does believe that if there had been more stripping to the waist and night attacks, with fewer days of thanksgiving aud fasting and prayers, the South would have less barren victories to rejoice over and less to mourn for now. A FREE PARDON.—At the Worcester Michaelmas Quarter Sessions, Mark Vann was tried and con- victed on a charge of having violently assaulted two police officers in the execution of their duty, at a p!aee called Wychali Mill, in the parish of King's Norton. The prisoner was sentenced to eighteen months'imprisonment. A memorial was thereupon addressed to the Home Secretary by the ptnoner's friends, accompanied by the depositions of several persons, stating that they had met the prisoner near his own house, at Nechells Green, fully seven miles fro.ii Wychali Mill, at the very same time when the assault was committed. The memorial has been effectual in procuring the prisoner's re- lease, the Secretary of State having advised Her Majesty to grant the prisoner a free pardon. 1 IIE NEW LORD CHANCELLOR.—A correspondent of the Leeds Mercury states that Lord Hatlierley has lor many years laboured as a Sunday School teacher, in which capacity he was the colleague for twenty years of a man whom Leeds was proud to return as ts representative to Parfiament-the late lioberi Hall. Here "is a man with the make and materials of a Chancellor, who has been giving his personal services to working men, by instructino- hen. children and grandchildren Sunday after Sunday for the last thirty years, until his hair is whitened with age and hard drudging labour. In his attendance at the school his punctuality is so unerring, that upon neariit-j it he serves'as an invariable timepiece, both teacher and scholar knowing well that if they are able to reach the door with or before him they are perfectly safe. Should a medal ever be awarded for punctuality in voluntary service the 3,ord Chancellor could fairly claim ii, for be has never been known to be be- hind time. Just two words more to say that West- minster finds in the Lord Chai cellor a most liberal supporter of is schools and hospiials, and, amotlg its churches, more tnan one owe their existence to- his counsel and to his munificence. If nt anv time there should be projected an 'Early Rising "Asso- c;.it.on, the founders might almost reckon upin Lord Hatherley as president, for our venerable Abbey (which is close to his residence) witnesses his daily entrance at an hour when a third ot the metropolis is in a position of recuiabaucy."
