More liberality.

While the purse-proud millionaires of New York, who have fattened from the industry of the South, are made to shell out their wealth for the purpose of subjugating a country without whose aid they can not live, it is cheering to find instances on our side of similar liberality, prompted by true patriotism. The Danville Register has good authority for saying that Mr. James C. Bruce, of Halifax, who is known to be one of the wealthiest men of Virginia, has declared his readiness to put at the disposal of his native State his entire pecuniary means, and his intention, if it shall be necessary, to melt his plate, including his spoons, and to lay them on the altar of the blessed old Commonwealth.
