Patriotic contributions.

The voluntary contributions of clothing and money, from patriotic citizens of the South, for various regiments in the army, registered at the Passport Office from the 3d to the 12th of October, amount to the large sum of $192,185. This fact is a grand illustration of the zeal of the Southern population, in the most noble cause that ever enlisted their sympathies. They are, to this vast extent, individually paying the expenses of the war, and no call will be made upon them by the Government to which they will not cheerfully respond. The soldiers will be inspired with new ardor, thus remembered and encouraged by the friends they left at home.
