Virginians in the battle of Shiloh.

Editors of Dispatch:

To your list of ‘"sons of Virginia"’ and representatives of Alexandria engaged in the battle of Shiloh, you may add the name of Captain Heady Hampton, who commanded a company of Tennessee volunteers in that battle, and was wounded in the right arm by a Minis ball, which coursed nearly the length of the arm to the shoulder. He is a native of Fauquier, and resided for several years in Alexandria; and it will gratify his many friends to learn that, though he was not so fortunate as to escape unscathed, he survives with little, if any, doubt of speedy and entire recovery.

Richmond, May 2 Fauquier.
