The county poor

--we allude particularly to those living on the city suburbs — are being sided from the city charity funds of Richmond, because they have no other source on which to rely. Many of the needy are soldiers families, and the County Court of Henrico ought to make provision for them. If the Courts had the power they ought to make the men who remain at home contribute liberally to the support of the families of those who take the field, and thus equalize the burthens of all. This might readily be done by special levy, and justice demands that it should be done.
