CHARACTERISTIC GENEROSITY.—We stated yesterday, that in addition to the contributions of Mr. George Kunkel, and others of his troupe, for the relief of the Virginia sufferers by the yellow fever, a benefit would, as we were informed, be given at the Holiday Street Theatre for the same worthy object. We now learn, from the Baltimore papers, that during the progress of the public meeting in that city yesterday, a letter was received from Mr. John T. Ford, manager of that theatre, tendering on behalf of the lessees of the establishment (Messrs. Kunkel, Ford, and Floyd) the entire receipts of the performances next Monday night, for which occasion Mrs. And Mrs. Charles Howard have kindly volunteered their services. It is needless to say anything in praise of this noble offer—so characteristic of the worthy proprietors.
