Ladies Relide Society.

--We are requested to publish the following:

The ladies of Pulaski county, Va., having formed an association for contributing to the relief of the sick and wounded of our hospitals, met for that purpose on Friday, the 18th of July, at New Dublin Church.

The Rev. Isaac N. Knaff opened the meeting with prayer, and after some preliminary remarks the following ladies were elected:

President--Mrs. John C. Dant.

Vice President--Mrs. And G. Matthews,

Treasurer--Mrs. Elizabeth Kent.

Secretary--Mrs. David McGavock.

A move was then made to appoint a committee whose duty will be to receive and forward such articles as may be contributed, and the following ladies chosen: Mrs. Jos. Cloyd, Miss. Eliza Matthews, Mrs John Trollinger, Mrs. Jas. Cloyd, Mrs. Geo. Katron.

This Society being a permanent one, (to continue during the war,) their operations will be much facilitated if the Surgeons of the different hospitals will correspond with the Secretary, Mrs. David McGavock, Dublin Post-Office, when necessary, and specify what articles are mostly needed, which will be forwarded as early as practicable.

The ladies of this Society will here tender their sincere thanks to Mr. E. H. Gill, for his generous offer to transport all contributions free of charge, on the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad.
