Noble liberality.

--It is understood that the gallant and brave Commander-in-Chief, who fell at Shiloh, with the shout of victory in his ears, and now sleeps in the heroes grave, hallowed by the tears and blessings of a nation, has not left behind him much of worldly gear. It is not probable that the open hand of the generous soldier reserved much of the soldier's pay for the future wants and comfort of a large family. It therefore behooves a generous people, for whose liberties he tolled and suffered, and at last yielded his life, to see that his family, bereft of their support, shall be provided for in a manner that will not shame their gratitude. We are happy to state that East Tenne. He has the honor of the first movement in this laudable object. Our fellow citizen, C. M. McGhee, , we learn, yesterday contributed, with a liberality which is equal to his patriotism, for the benefit of the family of Gen. A. Sidney Johnston--a noble example which we hope will be emulated by many others in the Southern Confederacy.-- Knoxville Register.
