their persdal lhbor, in gratuitous effort
for the removal of the thousands of tho
bodies of our noble dead from the spots
where they are lying, many of them
sarcely beneath the ground on the nu

iniles around that often assaulted gate
of the late Confederacy. It is estimated
that ltere are not fewer than 2,300 of
these preciou4 remains of departed lie
roes, of which more than 300 have al
rendy been identified as from :our State.
The Cemetery is laid out in oval

CIRCULAn.-The undersigned having
been appointed,a Committee by a public
meeting of the citizens of Winchester
(held in tirthera'live of le <lesign 'orgi
nated by Mrs. Phillips Willians and
Mrs. A. 11. Boyd,) to take eAsires to
collect the remains of the hohored dead
of the lat.e Confederate army which, re
pose in its vicinity, and to cause them to
be reinterted in suitable ground, t6 'be
provided and set Ppart for that purpose,
gladly accept the sacred trustcommitted
to't'em,and appeal to tho, e who gympa.
thize in the object for such' pectniary
aid as they may o disposed 'to render.
It is desired to efTect t'thihobject With
the least possible delay, so thaL. the
traisfILrence of the remains may be ac
complished before the heat of summer
shall interposv to hinder their removal ;
and this Committee has already institnt.
ed such iquiries as it is hoped anid be.
lieved will pit thetn in possession of all
the information which can he had 'to
enable them to proceed at olce to the
exeetion of the ptrpose contempfated
by the appoitmeilnt.
There is scir-:ely a Southern State
which will not be represented, more or
less largely, in this proposed city of the
heroic dead ; it is intended to assign 'to
(ach one of thent a separate and distinct
department in which the a,;hes of its
brave sons will repose side by side.
A record will also be preserved in an
enduring form of the names of the dent,
'as far as they can be ascertainol-the
State whence they came-the command
to which they were attached-and the
time, place and manner of thei- death ;
and where we have the infornmatio
mch grave will be provided with it
head board, on wich the name of its
ocCpant will be inscribed.
To carry out 'this design in a manner
corresponding rot only with a becom
ing sense of what is due to the memory
pf the dead, but to the sensiblities of
surviving relatives and friends, will in
volve a larger expend'imn of money
thin oir own people, in their present
impoverished conditio), could reasona.
b,Y be expected to supply. They, how
ever, have done and are now doing
what they can ; and we therefornfeel at,
liberty to s;k that. others, whoi may par

whbch have prompted this 'nhor of min.
gled gratitude and love, will nH in its
Accompljshments by such contribtiions

important that whatever may be (lone
in this way should be done speedily.
Any information which the friends or
relatives of deceased officers or soldi,-rs
may desire to obtain. as to 'the remains
of thoso who fell in battle, or who died
at Winchester or in its neighborhood,
and which may cdine to tihe knowledge
of the underSigned, will h promptly fir
