The right way.

--We understand that the Rev. Dr. Poindexter, of this city, while on a recent visit to Yorktown, found a company without tents or baggage wagons, and that hastening off to the county from which they had come, he appealed to the citizens, and soon raised $1,000 in money and property for their outfit. Such efforts to secure the comfort of our soldiers are worthy of all praise, and we record them with the hope of ‘"stirring up the pure minds"’ of others by ‘"way of remembrance,"’ that they may go and as far as possible do likewise. By the way, the friend who furnished us with the above item suggested that the Confederate Government could not do better than to secure the services of such gentlemen to go among the people and induce them to subscribe to the Confederate loan. Millions of dollars would thus be placed at the disposal of the Government which would not otherwise be reached.
