Devotion to our cause.

A Mississippian passed through Richmond lately, on the way home from Manassas, having in charge the dead body of a son. He remarked that he had two more sons in the army, and still another growing up to take the place of the one who had fallen. We did not learn the gentleman's name; but this instance of patriotic devotion to the cause of the South is worthy of remembrance.
