Assistance for wounded soldiers.

Rev. Dr. C. K. Marshall, of Miss., who is now in this city, has published an appeal in behalf of our maimed soldiers who have lost their limbs in defence of the Confederacy. He proposes that "an association" shall be organized in this city, composed of the distinguished and undistinguished of all the Confederate States, with a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Executive Committee, whose duty it shall be to raise funds for the manufacture or importation of artificial limbs, and present them to those who have been unfortunately deprived of their natural limbs; not as an act of charity, but conferred as an act of esteem and gratitude. Already $1,000 has been paid over to Dr. Marshall by one gentleman, and we doubt not the liberality and patriotism of the people will induce them to contribute cheerfully to an object so laudable.
