Twenty-one pieces of artillery, twenty-five hundred prisoners, many stands of colors, tiro hundred and fifty wagons, attest y6ur success over the 13th and 19th army corps. Of the 9th iust. you took up the pur suit an i pressed it with vigor.

The Direct of the Toting Mrna Christian Association of 'tichmond, respect fully, but eirnestly, submit to the beoeruleut and the patriotio throughout the Confederate States, an appeal in behalf of the Soldiers' ramiliei in this city. Since the comtnencem'ont of the war, Richmond has been a refuge tor tboss who have been driv.en from th.'ir homes by our ruthless vnemies. ThoUja'di of helploJs women. aud child. en, uot from tbe devastated couuties of V rginia alone, but from nearly every State of the Confederacy, bavu sought an asylu 1 in our midst. Our citizens have b.-ea app aled to in aumb-rlcss instances to relieve the sick Ani wounded soldiers, to furnish shoes and clothing for eoldiern in the held and hospital, and to afford food aud shelter for their su'CTering families, and nobly have th?y, in the great majority of in stances, responded to every appeal. The rupplit-s of provision iu this city at this tiu.e are so reduced, and the diiliwu'.lics of ob taining others hy ordinary m-ans so numerous and great, that tbe unds contributed for the re lief o the poor can accomplish but little in pur chasing the necessaries ot'life. In a written report from tb Clothlrg Bureau, it appears that, tbjere are more than three thou sand females in this city who are seeking employ ment from the Government in Vain, and that those who obtain work are not fuily employed. The wages received lor their woik will not enable these poor women to procure a puliiciency of the plainest food for theiusdves and children. Wilh out assistance, then, from the city and. couutry generally, many instances of actual starvation rnujt1j.ive occurred. Our City Council has made most liberal appropriations for the purchase of supplies, both tor gratuitous disti ibution and for E&L at cost; but the agents employed .or the pur pose have not been able to procure- tho quantity of provision requited. Lnder thes-j circuiustaoijc3, we fetl .ot it ii our duty to apeul t'or.r feJluw-citiz-ns through out tba Confederate States, to forward, without dtdayv contributions .f money and suppliei'tO' the army Committee of this association. Since the coi;?uiciceiRt of lha war this Committee has labored zealou&lv and faithfully tor the t-inoorwl and spirituil w -Jf ira of our sold iers and th 'ir tauii lies, and thi success of our lui-iui caue. LjI those soldiers not be discouraged now, upon the eve of our severest, and, as we ti tut. our last and -mosU g-loi-ions campaign, for Want of the gener ou1 syujpjitby and support of their frlands at home. .. ..
