A patriotic lady.--Mrs. Sanford, wife of Capt. Edward H. Sanford, of Boston, drove to the door of the Boston Volunteers' Headquarters, and sent her little son up to the officer's quarters with a handsome little box, decorated outside with red, white, and blue ribbons, and inside with a hundred dollars in gold. The gift was accompanied by a pretty note, of which we give the following extract: “Please accept, with a mother's offering, a mother's fervent prayers. Our hopes are all with you. God bless and keep our darling boys — old Massachusetts' sons, our hearts' dear treasures, the defenders of our flag. Again and again, God bless you!” The money will aid to maintain the large body of men now in the quarters, and the casket will follow the fortunes of the regiment, as a pleasant souvenir from a patriotic lady.

Captain Sanford, husband of the lady above alluded to, has tendered to Governor Andrew the use of the steamer Menemon Sanford, to transport troops or munitions from this city to any of the forts in our harbor. He has also offered the services of his steam tugboat, day or night, to tow vessels carrying troops or supplies to or from any of the forts.--Boston Saturday Express, April 27.
