The Washington Volunteers.

Editors of the Dispatch:--I respectfully ask the use of your columns to make an appeal to the ladies of Richmond those ‘"ministering angels"’ in every good word and work, in behalf of Company "H," of the Seventh Virginia Regiment. Its members are all from Washington City, without relations or friends in the Confederate States to appeal to, in this, their time of need, for articles of clothing which are necessary, nay indispensable, to their health and comfort, at this inclement season, while subject to the exposures of camp life. Among the very first in the field, they were distinguished for their gallant bearing in the battles of the 18th and 21st of July last, and have ever since been anxious for the opportunity of measuring their steel with the foe, and of winning back the honors they left as exiles. Abandoning the endearments of relatives and friends to fight for the independence and rights of the South, and engaged in the defence of our lives and property, they have a right to expect a kindly remembrance; and I trust that this appeal in their behalf will receive a cheering response. Virginian.
