Juvenile Patriotism. --The Army Committee of the Young Men's Christian Association requests us to call the attention of the little girls of our Southern cities to the noble achievements of three patriotic misses of Richmond, in order to stimulate them to like action. Little Mary Gill, Rebecca Griffin, and Laura Robertson, conceived the idea of getting up a fair for the benefit of the sick and wounded soldiers. They put their heads and hands to work, got up the fair, collected the children together, and sold "baby clothes," &c., to the amount of about $40, and gave the proceeds to our hospitals. Hereafter if any of the little ones think they are too small or too young to do good, let them remember the beautiful example set them by these little girls, and strive to emulate their virtues.
