It strikes us that if there is any
th'ng which we shcnld be able to
do for ourselves and which ws
should ak strangen to Lielp us to
do, it is to take care of oar old
veterans who may be in a condition
which requires assistance. The
Conititation started a fund the
other day for the purpose of build
ing a Homo near Atlauta, and it
has already reached Urge propor
tions. It us intended to raise at
least fifty thousand dollars and to
establish a IJome near that city,
with say, three thousand neres of
-land, where all the old soldiers of
Georgia may be cared for. This ia
the right thing to do, and Biimlar
work should be undertaken and
conducted by our own people in all
the States. Of coarse, we need not
hesitate to receive the williug con
tribution of any friends, at borne
or abroad, but we are able to con
duct these charities for ourselves,
without making a humiliating ap
peal to the North for help. We
have been for many years helping
to pav for the maintenance of Fed
eral Homes and have been paying
Federal pennons through the taxes
that we pay to the government.
We can surely make tbe necessary
contribution for our own veterans
in the shape of a self imposed tax.
We have already in Virginia one
well conducted Home, where a large
number of men are cared for in
comfortable way. We should pro
vide another, u necessary. If the
States are able to maintain these
institutions tbey should do so;
there is no ouestioo about this. If
