Generous and Unselfish Patriotism

We learn that the same citizen of Richmond who has already, at different times, handed to the Secretary of the Treasury two thousand dollars in gold, with the condition that his name should not be made known has just delivered to the Secretary another thousand in gold, upon the same condition. We honor the motives and generous bearing of our townsman. He deserves the appreciation and gratitude of his countrymen for the noble example which he has set.
