A patriotic family.
--Mr. Jos. K. Weisiger
, of this city, has six sons in the Southern Army
Their average height is six feet two inches. Capt. Coleman
's Company of Louisa Volunteers contains three sons of one gentleman of that county.
There has not been, since the present difficulties commenced, any disposition to ‘"hang fire"’ in meeting the issue by any portion of the loyal people of Virginia
and her sister States.
Even the women are ‘"enthused"’ to a degree we never witnessed before, and we verily believe that if Providence
were to ordain that all the men should be killed, our women would emulate those of Revolutionary fame by stepping into the ranks to drive out the scoundrels who now threaten our peace and quiet.
