Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.raising a Secession flag — Political Affairs. Fincastle, Va., April 8, 1861. Some eight or ten days past we raised a secession pole and flag in our usually quiet town. Hundreds witnessed the raising, and, as it was ascending the beautiful pole, (81 feet height,) our excellent Brass Band gave us that soul-stirring air, "Dixie." Secession speeches were then made by some of our citizens, and the day passed off quietly. A great change — I judge from many that I have conversed with — has come over the minds of the people in this section, since things have taken the course they have. The people are beginning to arouse themselves, seeing the danger to which they are subject by waiting. They are getting impatient — the suspense the State Convention is causing cannot be longer submitted to, and it is denounced as the greatest "humbug" affair that ever assembled in your city, as a deliberative body, called together by the people to vindicate

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch. The Policy of the Administration is War--Convention of Southern Rights Men at Williamsburg — Secession Meeting, Secession Flag, Secession Speeches, Secession Ladies, and Secession Enthusiasm — Appointments to Office by Lincoln, &c., &c.

What does he think now? Probably the blockading of ports, collecting of revenue, and reinforcing Southern forts, in the opinion of the honorable gentleman, are peace measures?

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch. Court Day — Political Discussion — New Candidates--Post-Office--Southern Flag — Dispatch — Railroad News, &c. Wytheville, Va., April 8th, 1861. This being Court-day, our town presents a most animated appearance, notwithstanding it has been raining the last twenty-four hours, which prevents many of our citizens from attending. The Court was occupied most of the day with civil business, granting licenses, &c.--In the afternoon it was adjourned, in order to give the honorable Messrs. Martin and McMullan an opportunity of presenting their views on the political topics of the ay — both being Congressional aspirants for this District. Mr. Martin led off in a speech of an hour's length, in which he tried to explain the position he occupied, at present, as an Union man, which surprised his constituents here not a little, from the fact of his having signed a card, in connection with a majority of his colleagues, at Washing
