From Norfolk.[Special Cor. Of the Richmond Dispatch.] Norfolk, Sept. 9. I regret to announce the death of a member of the Metropolitan Guards, 3d Regiment, Alabama Volunteers. The name of the deceased soldier is Jones, and he was a resident of Montgomery. He died on Saturday, and yesterday afternoon the remains were conveyed to the depot of the Seaboard and Roanoke Railroad, to be carried home to his relatives and friends. When a death occurs among the troops encamped on the Norfolk side of the Elizabeth, and at any of the different stations along the coast below, and the remains are sent South, it is necessary, of course, for the corpse and cortege to pass through the city; and there are many sights far less solemn and impressive than the funeral procession of a soldier. The slow and measured tread of the military attendants; the dull, suppressed sound of the drum; the shrill "funeral notes" of the fife; the slowly-moving hearse, with the tireless young sleeper, comb

se of organizing a Soldiers' Aid Society. Mr. Wm. E. Blankinship was appointed Chairman pro tem., and Miss Kate Cox elected Secretary.

An American pamphlet on Secession in Paris.

Moriah Church, Amherst county, by the ladies of that vicinity for the purpose of forming a Soldiers' Aid Society. The meeting was opened and closed with prayer by Rev. B. W. Roberts. The Society was organized by appointing Mrs. Sallie Claiborne, President; Miss Jennie Waller. Vice President; Mrs. Callie Gibson, Treasurer, and Miss Sallie Wilsher, Secretary. There were also twelve Directresses appointed. The object of this society is not simply to supply the wants of the soldiers, so far as they can, this fall and winter, but to remain thus united as long as our soldiers are in the field. They have selected one company — the Amherst Rifle Greys — upon which their girls will first be bestowed, and if their resources shall not be consumed, then upon such other companies as the society shall select. If such societies are not already formed all over our Southern land, I hope they will
