Suffering in Hanover.

--In our notice yesterday morning of the barbarities of the Yankees, we inadvertently stated that their outrages were perpetrated in Henrico. We should have said Hanover county. At the residence of one of the Justices of that county there are now twenty four women and children, entirely destitute the savages having destroyed the house of some, and the food and raiment of all of them. In their behalf we have received a contribution of $50, and will give proper direction to any others that may be made for their relief.

In the neighborhood of Haw's Shop, in the same county, many families have been stripped of every comfort of life, and unless immediate relief is given the women and children, many of them may perish for want of food. The Yankees swept the neighborhood of corn, bacon, and cattle of every description, besides ruining the growing crops. Until other arrangements are made, contributions may be left at the counting room of the Dispatch for these suffering people.
