These soldiers have no fathers, mothers, and sisters at home to call upon; for they, too, are wanderers — A correspondent of the Enquirer states that most acceptable donations of clothing have already been sent to some of them, but still they are sadly in need of yarn socks and yarn gloves, overcoats, flannel shirts, &c. Some of them are now stationed on the wagon-courses, where the winds are piercing and the frosts are bleak.

The Elizabeth City companies are, the Wythe Rifles, Capt. W. R. Wills; Old Dominion Dragoons, Capt. W. R. Vaughan; Washington Artillery, Capt. C. L. Smith and Hampton Grays, Capt. B. F. Hudgins.
The York Rangers, Capt. Jeff. Sinclair, are also partially composed of Elizabeth City men. In the 115th Regiment of Virginia militia are good and true men, too, from the same county.
