Gen. Cabell. --A volunteer company recently organized in Danville, has been named the "Cabell Guards," as a testimonial of respect for Gen. B. W. S. Cabell, of Pittsylvania co., Va. In a letter acknowledging the compliment, he says: Never since the creation of the world did men go forth to battle in a cause which combined so many, and such high and holy, and sacred obligations, to nerve the arms and to animate the hearts of men to heroic deeds, as now address themselves to the soldiers of the Confederate States. "The Sons of Liberty," go forth to fight for then mothers, wives, daughters, for their native land, for all that is most endearing in the name of country, the sacred name of home! Animated by these considerations, let the motto of the "Cabell Guards" be:--Victory or death !.
Patriotism in Pittsylvania. --The ladies of the Straitstone section of our county have evinced a spirit of patriotism peculiar alone to the ladies. On the eve of the departure of Capt. S. T. Mustain's company, it was announced that funds were needed for the purpose of ministering to the wants and comforts of the company in the coming trials and privations that await the soldier in the field and camp. The sum requisite not being made up in current coin, many of the ladies present contributed of the jewels they wore on that occasion all that they considered ornamental, and with glowing cheek and patriotic devotion laid them eagerly upon the common altar Southern independence.--Danville Reg.
