Liberality.--We copy the following from the Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle, in the hope that patriotic Virginians may be found willing to imitate the example: ‘ We have already noticed the formation of the "Blodget Volunteers." The company was organized on Wednesday night. Capt. Blodget started immediately for Milledgeville --saw Gov. Brown on Thursday--procured from him his commission as Captain, and an order for the arms of the company, and returned yesterday. An instance of energetic work which does great credit to Capt. Blodget, and indicates that he will not prove an unworthy son of the man who volunteered alone to swim the Willacoochee, in defiance of an ambush of hostile Seminole. Capt. Blodget and his company will be heard of with honor in this war. They will be ready to respond to their orders in about ten days. ’ In this connection, we cannot refrain from noticing the generous conduct of one of our citizens, who is not the man to blazon his good deeds to the world. Mr. Blodget had engaged to uniform and equip the company at his own expense, and was making preparations to raise the funds for the purpose. His design became known to Thos. S. Metcalf, Esq., who at once sent to Capt. Blodget the note which is subjoined. The donation in effect amounts to nearly two thousand dollars. We accidentally learned that Mr. Metcalf presented five hundred dollars a few days since to the families of those now absent at Pensacola. He, as well as many others of our citizens, make such donations in so quiet a way that they are only to be heard of accidentally, or we should have noticed the fact before this. Benjamin Conly, Esq., presented to the Blodget Volunteers the sum of one hundred dollars, and we understand, also, that Judge A. P. Robertson gave one thousand dollars towards the relief fund for the families of absent soldiers.
Thos. S. Metcalf.
