iotism. We subjoin a letter written by a Virginia lady, acknowledging the reception of a testimonial from the First Regiment North Car- olina Volunteers. Mrs. Tunnell resided near Hampton, and the Federalists, in their attempt to surprise our little army at Bethel on the 10th of June, arrested her husband, with every one else whom they could, in order to prevent the news of their advance reaching the Confederate force. Mrs. Tunnell managed to elude them, and in the darkness of the night made her way through the woods, and performed an act of devoted patriotism which proved an incalculable benefit. Gen. Hill speaks of her as having saved our army fride, bequeath as an inheritance to my children. May it be to them an incentive to imitate your patriotism and your virtues. May a kind Providence ever "shelter your heads in the day of battle." May each of you be the recipients of the reward due to distinguished valor and merit." Yours, truly and sincerely. Hannah Tunnell.
