Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.things in Caroline county. Bowling Green, Caroline Co., Va., March 18, 1861. This county, as you know, is red hot for secession, and, of course, the people here are not much pleased with the doings of the Convention. Many declare their purpose of going South if Virginia cleaves to the North. A clergyman said a few day ago that he would most assuredly go, in that contingency. Last Monday was Court day, and a goodly number of the sovereigns turned out. " What do you think will be the result?" was the inquiry of many who hitherto have never concerned themselves about political matters. There have been several sales of servants in this county of late, and high prices were given. A negro between thirty and forty years of age sold for $950 last Monday. The new hotel here is nearly finished, and other improvements are being made.
