Kemper's Artillery.

Among those who have left their State and homes to join the Southern army, and are entitled to a share of the contributions and comforts that are now being supplied by our liberal and kind-hearted Southern men, few save a greater claim than the men of Kemper's Artillery. They are composed chiefly of the roughs of Alexandria; poor men, of ruble means, but strong nerve. They were at Vienna when Gen. Schenck and his Ohio troops were stopped in their railroad excursion by the shots of Kemper's Artillery.--They were at the battles of Bull Run and Manassas. Kemper's Artillery claim to have shot the first gun on the 18th and the last on the 21st, and at least 300 Yankees are said to have fallen by the hands of the 84 men of this company alone. The kind ladies of Warrenton have prepared a suit of clothes each, for these brave men, but there are many other things required by them — woollen socks, blankets, and other comforts which we are sure will be thought of by those who have taken this matter in hand.
