the plantations — you who are paid for your labors; who risk not your lives amid disease; who retire to rest disrobed, because you expect not a dozen wakings during the night to traverse an hundred yards of open air space, perchance in rain, to visit a dying man in distant wards; you who have something better to eat than such as we have described, and who have a change of even such good food; to you it may at first blush seem strange that these noble women may want say a dish of oysters. In Richmond and the Peninsula oysters are no rarity, but it is a fact that these ladies at Culpeper have yet to see the first oyster upon their table. "But why don't they buy them?" you ask. We reply that in the first place they may not be quite so wealthy as Miss Burdette Coutts; in the second what few bivalves ever reach that town sell at about seven hundred percent. advance upon city prices, and in the third, what few they can get they give as a treat to some poor patient.

Such being the fact, will not each one who reads this bring or send to the clerk's desk of the Dispatch a sum which, in the aggregate, will enable him to send these good women a weekly treat of oysters? The writer is conscious of the certainty that said ladies will deprecate thi
