Fredericksburg Sufferers.

We learn that the following contributions have been received, from the country and other towns: Lynchburg Common Council, $2,600; citizens of Lynchburg, through Wm M. Blackford, Esq, $1,750; J. A. Campbell, of the War Department, from citizens of Mobile, $100; J. H. Sherrard, Cashier, Farmville, $10; from citizens of Bristol and Goodson through J. Q. Williams, $363; from Frederick Johnston, for self and others, of Salem, Va., $322, from Somerset and Enon Churches, through R. L. Coleman. $100; Charles Bruce, of Charlotte, 8400, John R. Bryan, $50, Mrs. J. M. M. Allan, Rosenwilk Culpeper county, $50; Miss Bettle R. Whitehead, Petersburg, $5; James D. Coleman, Caroline, $100. Philip B Jones, Orange, $150.

The committee have aided a number of refugees with money, and are to-day sending up a considerable quantity of flour, bacon, and other provisions to Hamilton's Crossing, to be distributed to he needy — who embrace the whole population of Fredericksburg. Such an example of suffering and constancy has seldom been known, and we appeal earnestly to all persons, not only in Richmond, but in every city, town and county in the South to send forward liberal contributions. They can be sent to R. R. Howison, Treasurer of Fredericksburg Relief Fund.
