--Mr. Jacob Wabb
, living near Ross's Mills, who is sixty-eight years old, and his wife is sixty-five years of age, together plant, hoe and pick out, with their own hands, (having not a single servant or assistant, neither have they a plow or a horse,) two bales of cotton per annum, gave at the meeting at Rosa's Mills, on last Monday, the whole of their crop for the support of the Southern Confederacy.
, Judge L. E. Houston
, remonstrated with him, and positively refused to take it, advising him to give only one-half, when he declared he would give the whole of it, stating that he was a soldier under Jackson
during the war 1812; that during that time he was three days without anything to eat, and he knew what it was to be a soldier, and further remarking, ‘"I will take my chances for something to eat, and will give everything I have to feed the soldiers."’--Aberdeen (Miss.) Conservative.
