male citizens remaining in the city, between the ages of 16 and 50, are requested to enroll themselves for active duty at home, in some military company.--Directions are given for obtaining a full list of all such persons. This is certainly a wise step; for all who enjoy the protection of the laws should lend their aid in promoting the public security. The election passed off to-day quietly. The vote was large considering the number of absent persons. Mon CŒur. Suffolk, May 23, 1861. One of the most painful results in the history of the present war occurred near this place this morning. As I telegraphed you, Capt. C. F. Fisher, of the Petersburg Cavalry, shot himself dead this morning with a pistol, while on the march with his company to this place. The removal of the company to some point accessible to Petersburg had been procured by the inferior officers, with the hope that Captain Fisher might be prevailed upon to return to his home in that city, it having

As your correspondent "Pen" is at the post of duty and honor, and you have had no news from this point for several days, I will give you, to the best of my ability, the news of the town. The Cavalry company have just left, having received orders on Tuesday. They are commanded by Capt. Tom Yancey, of this town, a very able and facetious lawyer and State's Attorney. Col. Gray addressed them in his usual flowery style. Capt. Yancey, in his address, speaking of his command, said "some are sick and have good excuse, but for the other men who are not present, we leave them in the care of the ladies of Rockingham, whom I feel assured will protect them and take care that they do not get hurt. Old Rockingham has done exceedingly well, sending over 800 men to the field. Two of the strongest "Union men" in the Convention were her representatives. Last Monday an affray took plac

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.election in Wythe — all for Secession — military matters — a tall Captain, &c. Wytheville, Va. May 23, 1861. W. H. Cooke is elected to the House by a large majority over Col. Graham, our late Representative. Everything passed off quietly, I am proud to say; at the two precincts heard from not a Union vote was given, and I pray this may be the case, not only in our county, but throughout the State. Seeing that we are determined to be free from the regime of Old Abe, our county has done well in this glorious struggle, and will do more. Already she has her "Grays" at Harper's Ferry, with some three or four more companies ready in a few days to do valiant service in the cause. Captain John Buchanan (no relation of the Ex-James; oh, no, the Captain is a gentleman and a patriot,) has a fine company; Captain Jackson Grayson, of Bland county, one of the best in the State; and last, though not least, one of the finest companies of young men<
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.the Louisa Grays. Green Springs, Louisa county. May 23d, 1861. The Louisa Grays, numbering 70 men, and commanded by Capt. Sargent, a graduate of the Military Institute, left here yesterday for their encampment in Richmond. They are brimful of courage and patriotism, understand well the justice of our cause, and will prove themselves, in camp and field, amidst privation and danger, Revolutionary soldiers. They were accompanied to the depot by all of their neighbors and friends, and many a prayer will be offered during their absence for their safety and speedy return. Each man received from one of the young ladies in our neighborhood (Miss S.) a Bible, which was delivered with an affecting address and benediction by the Rev. Charles Dickinson. With the love and fear of God in their hearts, they have nothing to fear from man. X.
