Benevolence in camp.

--Among the instances of sympathy for misfortune lately reported to us, we may mention that of the Ben McCulloch Rangers, who made up a purse of $60 for a sick comrade and sent him home; and another of $140 for James Burnes, a member of the Tiger Rifles, who had his arm shot off at the battle of Manassas. These men are not only willing to undergo hardships themselves, but freely share their pittance with those who are in want.
