--The recent call of Brig Gen
. upon the citizens of Augusta
, Rockbridge Beckingham, Shenandoah
, and other counties to supply his command with rations and forage, by each one sparing a little, was answered by the people of Rockingham
, where he was encamped, in the most patriotic manner.
Committees were appointed in different parts of the county to wait upon the citizens and what they could spare.
They did so, and taking the statement of parties as to what provisions and forage they had, determined what amount it was their duty to send to Gen. Imboden
's command, which was promptly done.
The result is that Gen. Imboden
's command has had an abundance of beef, bacon, flour, and forage, and the people have not suffered at all,
