Who will do likewise? --The ladies of Hanover, in the neighborhood of Salem Church, having heard of the exposed condition of Capt. B. W. Talley's company, (Hanover Grays,) a portion of Col. August's Regiment, on Monday morning commenced making tents, and by Wednesday had finished 12 tents 10 by 10 ft, said by a judge to be as good as any he had seen. These tents would have cost the State from $250 to $300. Girls from 14 to ladies of 60 years of age were busily engaged in this werthy enterprise. Such patriotism claims our highest admiration. Mr. Haw gave essential aid in labor and material. Camp stools were made by Messrs. Ellett, Cross & Curtis and sent along, which will add to the comfort of the company. The above articles have left our wharf for Williamsburg, at which place the Grays are now stationed, in charge of Messrs. Wm. E. and P. R. Norment. All honor to the ladies of Hanover for leading off in so laudable an enterprise.
