--Among the first who rushed to arms to repel the Yankees in their attempt to conquer Virginia, was a regiment of Kentuckians. They were at Harper's Ferry at the very beginning of the war, and now form a part of the army of the Potomac. They left their homes at the first report of the invasion of Virginia, and for nine months they have withstood, most courageously the trials of war, deprived of many things necessary to a soldier's welfare. Separated from their friends by insurmountable obstacles, they are dependent on their small pay for their comforts, and at the present price of things, eleven dollars a month cannot go far! A concert for their benefit will be given, next week, in the Second Baptist Church, corner of Main and 6th streets, by the same ladies and gentlemen, who, last month, delighted our people by two of the most charming concerts ever given in this city. We are told that their third concert will surpass in variety the two first ones. As there will be a great crowd, it has been suggested that persons who propose to aid this laudable project should procure their tickets in advance.
