The Old North State

--Since the present war commenced North Carolina has not only done her part in men and arms, and been the peer of any of her sister States in every way, but she has taken good care to see that her sons who obeyed her call and went forth to battle in defence of her rights, had every assurance that they were not forgotten by the ‘"loved ones at home."’ Many munificent donations have been heretofore noted. In this regard she leads the van. Within a week past her citizens have sent $38,000 worth of clothing, &c., to the 4th, 6th, and 23d regiments, and $13,400 to other regiments not named. This is the way the ‘"old North State"’ fulfills her obligations to her brave sons.
