Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.from Yorktown. Yorktown, Va., May 27, 1861. Yorktown — the scene of great events in the olden time, has again become the theatre of soul-stirring action, and amid the rolling of the drum, the martial file and warlike bugle, a scene has been enacted in our midst which calls forth every better and holier feeling in the heart. The event I would refer to was the presentation of a most beautiful flag to the "Peyton Artillery," that gallant and patriotic band now here to yield their lives for the maintenance of their rights and the inviolate sanctity of their hearths. But not only in the action of presenting a flag lies the intense interest that this scene has excited. When we recollect that on the very ground on which our camp is placed, nay, on the very elevation, a stone was enacted upwards of three-quarters of a century since, which led to our glorious independence that is now threatened by the sordid spirits of the North, which h
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.from Roanoke. Salem, Va. May 27, 1861. The crops promise to yield the most abundantly of any year for a decade past. The wheat has the finest appearance I most ever saw. We have two volunteer companies in service. Another company will leave in a day or two for the seat of war.

Roanoke may well be proud to entrust her honor and liberty in their hands. One is an Artillery company, Capt Hupp, the other two are Rifle, Captains Dyerle and Rock. We have two companies of Home Guard, one of which the members are to be over fifty years old, or others who are muster free. The members of the other are between the age of twelve and eighteen. The two companies together number about one hundred and thirty. Mr
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.from Montgomery. Montgomery, May 27th, 1861. Recall to mind the last time you moved your household from one tenement to another, and you can form a tolerably correct idea of the condition of Montgomery this sultry day.--Perspiring clerks and employers are everywhere busy in packing up huge piles of books and papers, and it would not be surprising if some of them should swear just a little before the business of removal is completed; though all appear anxious to hasten to the good old city of Richmond and be nearer the scene of action. The War Department, including the Quartermaster General and Chief of Ordnance Bureaus, will require the greatest amount of labor in removal, but even there everything will be ready for a start in a few days. Several intelligent officers from Pensacola have just arrived, and report that our forces around Pickens are in excellent condition, and confident of their ability to reduce the Fort in a few ho
