Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.the voice of old Buckingham. New Store, 8th April, 1861. I have great pleasure in informing you that the secession feeling is gaining ground rapidly in this county, (Buckingham.) On the 1st April, a flag of three stripes and seven stars "and a hall" was raised in Curdsville. The half star was intended to represent Virginia. Last Saturday quite a large number of people collected at this village and drew up a similar one on a pole a hundred feet high, amidst loud and prolonged cheers. Old gray-headed men, Whigs and Democrats, took part in the proceedings. A few months since there were not more than half a dozen secessionists in the county. Now there are hardly more than that number for Union--in other words, for submitting to be ruled by the Republican party.
