[for the Richmond Dispatch.]Acknowledgment. Fairfax C. H., Sept. 24, 1861. Mr. Editor: Allow me to acknowledge through the columns of your paper the reception of a number of nice shirts from the hands of Mrs. Mary Carter, of Fincastle, Virginia, as a donation to the sick soldiers of our regiment. Mrs. Carter is an old lady of eighty years of age, and these shirts were made by her own hands. She is the daughter of Major James Gibbon, who led the forlorn hope, under Gen. Wayne, at the of Fincastle, Virginia, as a donation to the sick soldiers of our regiment. Mrs. Carter is an old lady of eighty years of age, and these shirts were made by her own hands. She is the daughter of Major James Gibbon, who led the forlorn hope, under Gen. Wayne, at the storming of Stony Point in our first revolution. This truly suggests the thought that the spirit of those old heroes yet lived to spur us on to great achievements. Edmund F. Bowyer, M. D., Ass't Surgeon 30th Reg't. Va. Vols.

No doubt each were the operations of incendiaries.
