--The Petersburg (Va.) Intelligencer
says that any remittances in aid of the family of Dr. D. M. Wright
, who died the death of a martyr at Norfolk
, may be mailed to that office, and will reach its proper destination.
Among all the afflictions brought upon families and individuals by this war, we have heard of no case which presents so many horrors as that of the family of the late Dr. David M. Wright
, lately murdered by the Yankees
Since his cruel murder by hanging, his widow has died of distress of mind, and one of his daughters, a most interesting young lady, has gone mad. The eldest son of Dr. Wright
having been killed at the battle of Gettysburg
, his family are now left in indigent circumstances and without a protector.
Under these circumstances, it has been determined to make an effort to raise in the Confederacy
, by subscription, a sum of money sufficient to bring the family of Dr.
W. out of the Yankee
lines and place them above want amongst those who can sympathize with them in their deep affliction.
