A Virginia woman. --An incident like the following, furnished by a correspondent of the Staunton Spectator, is truly worthy of record: As the Augusta, Rockbridge and Rockingham troops marched down the valley to Harper's Ferry, Mrs. Heter, a widow lady residing near the village of Middletown, in Frederick county, but at considerable distance from the road, gave evidence of her kindness of heart and sympathy for our weary men. She had a table carried to the road-side, and with her own hands, assisted by her servants, carried out a quantity of milk, bread, pies and other comforts, and for two days fed from one to two hundred. At parting with them she said: "My only son, seventeen years of age, has gone in a company from our neighborhood. If, in the defence of your country, any of you should sicken or be wounded, and can get to my house, I will do all I can to minister to your comfort."
