At New York, a matronly lady, accompanied by her son, a fine youth of about nineteen years, entered a gun store on Broadway, and purchased a full outfit for him. Selecting the best weapons and other articles for a soldier's use, that could be found in the store, she paid the bill, remarking, with evident emotion, “This, my son, is all that I can do. I have given you up to serve your country, and may God go with you! It is all a mother can do.” The incident attracted considerable attention, and tearful eyes followed this patriotic mother and her son, as they departed from the place.--N. Y. Times, April 29.
