Stonewall Jackson’s War Hfse as He
Was 20 Years Ago and Now.
From thr Utica Obseitr.
Mr. Frederick Webster, th< taxidermist,
has spent many months of lair on the work
of mounting “Old Sorrel,”as Jackson's
favorite steed was called firing his last
years. Although tho horscis reproduced
as true to life as it is possib to make him,
yet only the hide and the hofs are there.
Just one year ago Mr. Wbster was sum
moned to Richmond, Va., tperf orm the last
sad rites, which in his artfire the first, on
the horse. Old Sorrel brethed his last sur
ir>unded by the veterans if the home, who
had found a peculiar pasure in kindly
caring for him in his lnsdays. It was not
unnatural that those wt> had so tenderly
nursed him for the memfies that clustered
about him should have tmed aside to brush
awav the tears when thdittle horse died.
His epitaph is simple but between the
lines speaks volumes:
He achievtj fame.
He died Mara 17, 1886.
Aged 86 jlars.
The tough little bore would endure any
emount of nurd riding rithout signs of fag
ging; if however, his ider dismounted, he
would refresh himsel,' by promptly lying
down, without waitin' to have the trap
ping's removed. Although the saddle suf
fered from the contet with the earth his
owner would not allot him to be disturbed.
The horse was very fmd of apples, and the
General always remeabered him when that
delicacy could be lntl. Little Sorrel soon
became a thoroughly trained steed. If his
rider was deep in tie mysteries of some
plans he would suit lis gait to the humor;
he often heard the so;t accents of a muttered
prayer, and bore timself with a show of
solemnity until son? dashing courier on a
spirited ” horse or tie “song of a shell”
aroused him to txar himself like the war
horse that he was., The horse loved the
roar of battle and tie rush of a charge, and
chafed under a cloie rein and a dogged
Jackson did not know music, and once
showed his dullness tor it by asking ayoung
lady if she had ever heard a song called
“Dixie,” and when she had finished singing
it he seemed much pleased, but did not
recognize the air plaved every day by the
hands in the array, feat there was one kind
of music which he always recognized —it
was the yell with which his troops always
S-eeted him when he appeared before them.
e always acknowledged the compliment by
taking off his gray cap, and Little Sorrel,
catching the inspiration of the moment,
would break into a gallop and continue it
until the sound had ceased. The inmates of
the Soldiers’ Home say that up to the last
he retained his fondness for the sound of a
gun; that when the boys would fire rapidly
in the neighborhood, killing robins, the horse
would trot off in the direction and look over
the fence with great interest; turning with
the change of direction he would trot off in
search of tie sound. It is rather remark
able that hie horse was never wounded, al
though he lore Jackson through his cam
paigns of Rlmnev, McDowell, Port Repub
lic, Winchester, Cross Keys, Cold Harbor,
Second Marassas, Fredericksburg, and the
fatal field of Chancellorsville. During the
t Maryland cimpaign he rode a handsome
gray, presented to him by an admiring
Marylander and came near losing his life
by the horse falling on him. He had also a
very handseme sorrel presented to him by
the people oi Augusta, Ga.
It was at Chancellorsville, after a vigor
ous stroke, when Jackson by a prompt
movement had cut Hooker’s line in two,
capturing many prisoners and guns, that
Little Sorrel was to lose his most devoted
friend. It appeal's that Jackson rode out
with thive or four members of his staff to
reconnoitre; when they returned it was
dark. Tie troops that’ saw him pass down
the road had been relieved by others, who
were instructed to fire upon the approach of
anything Udioating the enemy; tne.se were
startled by the approach of horses’ hoofs in a
rapid cantet, and delivered one or two vol
The result of this assault was the unhors
ing of Jackson with a wound in the right
band, another in the upper part of the right
arm, and a third in the left arm. These
wounds were not necessarily fatal, but soon
after he took to his bed pneumonia devel
oped, with a fatal result. Little Sorrel was
stampeded when the coufusion that followed
the terrible accident was at its heigth; it
was feai-ed that the little horse had escaped
into the enemy’s lines. The next day some
of Stuart’s men found him and returned
him to headquarters.
After the death of Jackson the favorite of
the camp was sent to Mi's. Jackson, at her
home near Charlotte, N. C. A few years
ago, in response to an urgent request, she
sent him to the Virginia Military Institute, ■
where her husband was professor at the be
ginning of the war. The horse was sent to
the New Orleans Exposition to be exhibited
for the benefit of the Confederate Home and
the Jackson monumental fund. His life
was shortened by tho trip and a cold con
tracted while South. After his return he
was consigned to the care of the inmates of
the Home near Richmond, some of them
having kept step with him in the trying
times when their beloved leader was on his
back. The horse was an object of much in
terest to visitors to the Soldiers’ Home, and
great put of the veterans.
Oh! s. crel had passed through the “mani
kin ou . J"of taxidermv, and a fair pre
wntati >n of the original "has been secured.
His skeleton is also to tie articulated.
As the horse had been allowed to go un
sfvxi from the time he was carried from the
battlefield his hoofs had grown to an
enormous length. These were trimmed to
me proper size. The position given the
horse is an easy one, on an inclined plane
finished to represent a stone. With proper
care the horse will last for many years.

Faro Ed, of Texas, Pays Gotham a Visit
—A Duel to the Death.
From the Xew York Mail and Express.
A well dressed man walked into one of the
fashionable uptown hotels last Tuesday. He
ea rried in his hand a large valise, which he
refused to hand over to any of the waiting
hall boys. When he reached the desk he put
die valise between his legs and registered ns
toward Smith, of Coreda Springs, Tex.
Although the clerk had no idea who Mr.
r>mith was, his appearance commanded re
spect, and he was at once shown into a
handsome apartment overlooking Fifth
avenue. There was nothing about
* stranger's dress to tell
that he came from the Lone Star State. His
nan- was of the conventional length. Ho
wore n high silk hat. His clothes were of
fashionable make, and ho wore gloves; yet
e\ ery one turned to look at him. He was
wi l, apparently 45 years old, with a grizzled
i-ioustiujbo ana iron gray hair. There was
no color in his bronzed face. His light blue
' p \ however, were his most remarkable
eature. They were restless and piercing to
a singular degree. His fneo was one that
ouia not easily Vie forgotten. Yet its owner
remained at the hotel until yesterday

lo<iH l eur # ago. One day a tall, green
int, J’ ou f*'> evidently a tenderfoot, rode

hot ""i* 'J°toL Ho placed a hng of gold in the
in'tei. **nd at once became an object of
t° #ll the gamblers in town.
JBU *° tme he could not bo induced to
play cords. At last, bowevsr, he was de
coyed into Jim Mega'S aaklon. and when he
left the faro table InApirted with his
last cent. The ran day fee hotel clerk,
learning of his lua*es, usttqd him to pay his
bill. This he c<iutt not do. He was there
fore ordered to le#ve. While he was wan
dering through the street*, he saw the gam
bler who had '\ on his mouhv eating nn ex
pensive dinnerj anqt (Jrjuking wine in the
highest-priced lWumllu Denver. After
a moment’s In-sltarion, H went in and told
the gambler that be was hungry and penni
less, and asked for $1 out of the thousands
he had lost.
■ The gambler laughed at him. Smith, for
the tenderfoot was the now famous gambler,
looked the man in the face and said: “If I
can’t eat, I swear, sir, you shan’t.” Prompt
ly drawing a revolver he calmly shot the
gambler through the heart. There was no
organized ixiliee force in Denver then, but
Smith walked to the jail at once and gave
himself up. The shooting excited much in
terest, and Smith would have been released
immediately had the gamblers not deter
mined to hang him. One night Smith’s cell
door was opened. He was told that he
would find a horse waiting at the gate, and
he had better make his way out of Colorado
as fast as possible. When his escape was
made public the gamblers were furious, and
Bill Stevens, who had been the partner of
the murdered gambler, swore he would kill
Smith if he had to wait ten years.
Smith next came into public notice two
years later in Austin, Tex. He had evi
dently made good use of his time, for when
he arrived there he had a large sum of
money with him. He took a prominent
part in several shooting affairs, and soon be
came recognized as a man of desperate cour
age, who never drew a pistol unless he
meant to shoot, and was wont to draw on
very small provocation. He formed a part
nership with Ben Thompson, who was shot
a few years ago in Jack Harris’ theatre, in
San Antonio, and together they opened a
faro bank. They made money fast
until one night two men were killed
in their place, and they were obliged
to close for awhile. They never en
tirely dissolved partnership, however, and
it lasted until Ben Thompson’s death. Seven
years after Smith left Denver he was obliged
to go to Houston, Tex., on business. While
walking across the plaza in front of the
market he came face to face with Bill Ste
vens. Though seven years had changed
them both, they recognized each other at
once, and, without speaking, they drew their
weapons. They were only twenty feet apart
when the duel began. Their pistols were
discharged almost simultaneously, but
neither man fell. Again and again
they fired, and at each shot ad
vanced. When they were so near
that they could almost touch each other,
both men fell. The crqwd which had gath
ered about the corners of the plaza thought
they were both dead, and were about to ad
vance, when they saw the duel was not over.
The pistols of both men were empty. After
several attempts, Stevens got on his hands
and knees, and was crawling toward Smith
with a long knife he had drawn from his belt
to give him a last blow, when Smith saw his
intention. He was unable to move, but as
Stevens raised his arm for the death blow, he
struch him on the head with the butt of his
pistol. They fell over each other and lav in
a heap for several minutes. Then Smith drew
a cartridge from his belt, and with his teeth
got it into his pistol. Just as Stevens was re
gaining his consciousness, Shiith shot him
through the head. Every shot had taken
effect. Smith had six bullets in his body.
He recovered, however, and was tried for
murder. The jury acquitted him on the
ground of self-defense. When Smith recov
ered sufficiently to travel he returned to
Austin. He was welcomed home as a hero.
The horses were taken from his carriage and
he was dragged in triumph by the people to
his home. For the past few years Smith is
not known to have killed anyone, but the
people in the Southwest have a great respect
for him, and, except by a stranger, he is al
ways treated with marked courtesy. He
now owns a ranch at Coreda Springs, and
is thought to be rich. What brought Smith
to New York could not be learned.
HOWELLS MAKES REPLY.
What the American Novelist Thinks of
His British Assailants.
W. D. Howells, in Harper's for June.
We do not really suppose that the, inhabi
tants of the British Islands are all satisfied
with their literary criticism; we suspect that
many of them must have their misgivings
when the Saturday Review, for example,
calls' names and makes faces because some
one has, for instauce, deplored the survival
of the English aristocracy in our time. They
must some of them feel that it is not a
wholly terrible spectacle; that however
right the Review may be its behavior
is a little ridiculous. But those
islanders are a little curious, and in some
things quite remote; they may still think
the tomtom a powerful argunient, and the
gourd-rattle the best means of carrying
conviction to the minds of men. They may
even admire the solemn portof the Academy
when it knits its classic front and tells an
American novelist that “he is, to say the
least, presumptious” in questioning the im
peccability of English fiction. What he
would be, if the Academy were to say the
most, one shrinks from guessing; but ap
parently the British aristocracy, which
reads tne British novel so little, and the
British novel, which derides the British
aristocracy so- much, are twin monuments
whose perfection no foreigner may doubt,
under paiu of British criticism’s high dis
pleasure. * * * * *
So far as we know, this is not now the
carriage of criticism toward authorship in
any country but England and her literary
colonies. Self-restraint, decency, even po
liteness, seem to characterize the behavior
of critics elsewhere. They may not like an
author’s work, but they do not for that
reason use him with ignominy or insult.
Some extreme friends of civilization have
insisted that a critic should not write of a
book what he would not say to the author
personally about it; but this is not possible,
it is at least premature, if not a little un
