From Norfolk[special correspondence of the Dispatch.] Norfolk, April 27th, 1861, Yesterday afternoon the Petersburg Artillery, Capt Nichols, and the Norfolk Artillery, Capt. Vickery, were sent down to Craney Island, to protect the works now in progress of construction at that post, under the direction of Major R. Henry Glenn, of the Engineer Department. Craney Island is, in my humble opinion, the most important point for the defence of this city, and should therefore be garrisoned with not less than one thousand men, and from thirty to forty pieces of heavy ordnance. The present works will mount twenty two guns, and it is the general opinion of judges who have made careful examinations, that, so far, it is perfect. The length of the battery is about five hundred feet, and the height of the earth breastwork about five feet. I learn that it is the intention of the Engineer to place barrels, end up, on the top of the breastwork, which, together with the spaces between them, w

Our mountain boys are itching to get a pop at the Gothe and Vandals sent out, and to be sent out, by that old tyrant and usurper and fool that presides at the head of affairs at Washington — in plain English, old Abe Lincoln.

It was presented, for the ladies by Miss Lizzie Hardin of Kentucky, one of the teachers in Martha Washington College. It was received by Lieut. R. B. Edmonson. To-day the young ladies of Martha Washington College presented a handsome
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.affairs in Charles city. Charles City N. H., April 27, 1861. I have seen no report in the Richmond papers of military preparations in this county. It may be agreeable to you, and interesting to some of the readers of your paper, to hear something of what is being done in this locality. We have a company of Cavalry, about sixty strong, commanded by Capt. Robert Douthat, fully officered, fully uniformed, well equipped, and ready for any emergency. We have also a Rifle company, about seventy-five rank and file, with a full complement of officers, commanded by Capt. Geo M. Waddill. This company is also uniformed and armed with muskets. It is much to be regretted that these men cannot be supplied with the best rifles, as many of them are known to be very superior shots. These companies have been well drilled, and are anxious to meet the enemy; and when they do, my word for it, they will give a good account of themselves. Our
