[for the Richmond Dispatch.]the Patriotism and industry of an Old lady. Camp Lee, Nov. 16, 1861. Mrs. Lucy D. Barnes, of Charlotte county, Va., now 87 years old, has recently knit a lot of most excellent and comfortable socks and comforts, and sent them to the "Charlotte Defenders," of the 56th Regiment of Virginia Volunteers, and commanded by Captain Thos.

The whole insists of but ten pieces, and the rifle can manufactured for less
