Seven sons in service.

--We published yesterday a paragraph giving an account of four widows living in the South who had sent nineteen sons to fight for their country. This we thought doing very well, but there is a widow lady in our city, who we think has done better than any other we have yet noticed. She has already sent seven into service — some of them fighting now at Sewell's Point — some anxious for a chance at other points, and some ready to reinforce them. --All waiting for orders; and the old widow says she wishes she had as many more of the same sort — she would send them all. With such mothers and such sons to lend their aid, the Southern cause must necessarily be victorious.--Lynchburg Republican.
