A New Tract Society.--From the following advertisement it would appear that the rebels have organised a tract society of their own:

A noble work.--give it your aid.--The Evangelical Tract Society is doing a good work in supplying with religious reading the soldiers of our confederate army, in their various camps. The necessity for this is great. Many regiments have no chaplains. Thousands and thousands of our soldiers never heard a sermon. Deprived of this means of grace, and exposed to so many and so powerful demoralizing influences, what is to become of them, if divine truth in some form does not reach them? Shall no man care for their souls? Shall we leave them to perish, and not make earnest efforts for their salvation? And will not the blood of souls be upon us? Let us look our responsibilities in the face, and endeavor by Divine aid to fulfil them! Let this noble enterprise which proposes, as far as possible, to supply the lack of religious services in the camps by the employment of colporteurs, and by those little messengers of Gospel truth — tracts — be amply sustained.

If you are disposed to aid a great cause — the cause of patriotism and of religion, the cause of country and of Christ — please remit your contributions to

James E. Cuthbert, Treas. of the Evan. Tract Society, Petersburgh, Va.
