The Daily Dispatch: May 24, 1861., [Electronic resource], Clarksville, Mecklenburg co., May 21, 1861. (search)
Clarksville, Mecklenburg co., May 21, 1861. The County Court yesterday appropriated $35,000 for arming and equipping the volunteers. In this appropriation provision is made for the Cavalry, Capt. Goode, now at Ashland; for the Clarksville Blues, Capt. Finley, and Chambliss Grays, Capt. Baskervill, both of which have their rendezvous at Richmond; also for five additional companies. There are four now forming. Capt. Tucker Carrington is raising a company on this side of the Roanoke, Mr. T. T. Boswell one on Bluestone, Mr. Oliver one in the neighborhood of the city, and Col. William Townes, jr., one in the neighborhood of Boydton. All of them, I believe, have the legal number, and will organize at once. Mecklenburg is thoroughly aroused, and will furnish more than her quota of men and money. A servant of Thomas B. Wall, of this county, insisted so much on going with Capt. Finley's company, that his master consented for him to go. He was told that his clothes were

Lunenburg, Va., C. S. A. May 21, 1861. In justice to old Lunenburg, please give place to the following facts and explanations: There is evidently a great misapprehension in Richmond and elsewhere as to what we are doing. My risibles have been "irrepressibly" shaken at beholding the miserable affectation with which some express their profound mortification that, as they say, " Lunenburg has not responded," &c., &c. But an explanation of the cause of these incorrect reports may possibly be found in the fact that Lunenburg denounced our dilly daily Convention, and seceded from the North long before they did. We hear of four companies already organized, and one hundred men in companies formed in adjacent sister counties. If the authorities will furnish the arms, they are ready to march. True, we utter no frothy ejaculations of bravery; we are not afraid to bear the imputation of cowardice; but when the trying moment comes, we will, without invidious compar

Durrettsville, Richmond County, Va., May 21, 1861. The blockade in the mouth of Rappahannock River is kept up strictly, and innumerable and petty annoyances and alarms disturb the peace and quiet of the citizens of the Northern Neck. On Friday last a steam-tug made several landings along the river, and at one point secured a pilot with a determination to capture the Smith's Point light-boat, which was moored up Mill Creek. The purpose of the enemy was not discovered in time to prevent their going up and fastening on to the light-boat, but as soon as it was known, about twenty-five of the citizens, with arms, hastened to the shore, headed by Capt. Stakes, of Lancaster county, and attacked the tug, containing about 200 men; the fire was returned by the enemy, but without effect. Several of the robbers were seen to fall, and if the citizens had received notice in time, they would have prevented the recapture of the light boat. Shots were fired at them all along the Creek a
King William Co, May 21, 1861. Mr. George Taylor, of Horn Quarter, in this county, has again given evidence of his liberality and devotion to the Southern cause.--Capt. C. H. Boggs, of the King William Guerillas, applied to him for assistance in uniforming his command, when he unhesitatingly furnished all the money required to uniform the company. Guerilla.
Danville, May 21, 1861. The County Court has subscribed $50,000 to equip and support the families of soldiers who have and may volunteer. Dan.
