Wants of Virginia volunteers.

The proclamation of Gov. Letcher, appealing to the people of Virginia for aid to the volunteers in certain necessary articles of clothing, will, we are sure, receive a universal and cordial response. Other States have taken measures to provide for the comfort of their respective troops, and Virginia should not neglect her children. They have shown a courage and devotion, and suffered sacrifices in this war, only equalled by the heroism and magnanimity of their Southern brethren, and not surpassed in the vaunted pages of revolutionary history. That men like these should be left to endure the vigors of winter without shoes, or sufficient clothing. slaves at home are comfortably cold is Virginian will permit — The people in every county and corporation of the State should set to work immediately, in conformity with the Governor's recommendation, hold meetings, and appoint an agent to collect the contributions which will be made, and carry them to the soldiers of their respective neighborhoods.
