Southern sympathy.

the Grecian, the Polish, and Hungarian exiles Richmond manifested a commendable sympathy and will it do less for the exile from Maryland, and Eastern and Western Virginia. There are many families, as we learn from the passport office, now in this who have been reduced from affluence to almost utter destination by the enemy. They cannot pay the extortionate prices charged for boarding, and our citizens should see that they have chatter and maintenance. For, under the Providence of God, we may be also to taste the same bitter-cup of adversity that become dependent upon others, South. Beef is only 12 cents per lb., and bread 5 cents per loaf; and to charge one of these exiles from $25 to $40 per month, for robbery, is not to the credit of Richmond-- to its best interest, either.
