Whipped by women.

A correspondent informs us that in Lee County, Va., near the Tennessee line, a tory, who had slandered the widow of a deceased confederate soldier, was tied up by some half-a-dozen indignant women, and received twenty stripes. The women who administered this wholesome admonition were soldiers' wives and widows.--Richmond Despatch.
