Noble conduct of citizens of Richmond.

The following is an extract of a letter from a member of the ‘"Garde de Lafayette,"’ dated Norfolk, Va., July 10, which we find published in the Mobile (Ala.) Tribune. We are glad to find that the efforts of our citizens to contribute to the comfort of our brave volunteers from our sister States, meets with so much approval:

‘"I dined with the sheriff of Richmond last Monday. His name is Henry K. Ellyson.--What is worthy of all praise by our people is, that he takes our sick to his own dwelling, and gives them every attention. His kind lady does everything in her power to promote the comfort of the sick soldier. The rooms that our sick occupy are furnished with elegance. He has had seven at one time to attend to in his house, and kind Dr. Albert Shead is giving his own services free."’
