Patriotic response.

Although a seeming indifference has been manifested by the business men and large property holders of Richmond to the noble and patriotic proposition of Col. Blanton Dundan, of Kentucky, for the construction of a first class iron-clad gunboat, is seems that that proposition has attracted attention elsewhere. We append a note from a gentleman in Tennessee which speaks for itself, and which we recommend to those interested in preserving the city from the tread of the vandal hordes of Lincoln:


Athens, Thin., March 28, 1862.

To the Richmond Dispatch:
I second Col. Duncante motion for the new gunboat Richmond by subscribing $500. Let the work commence.

Yours, respectfully,

Milton P. Jarnagin.
