Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatchthe battle at Bethel Church.additional particulars. Yorktown, Va., June 14th, 1861. In the various letters written from Yorktown giving an account of the late battle at Bethel Church. I see no mention of the battalion that was first on the field that occupied Bethel a week before the battle was in the heated the engagement, and received the thanks of Col. Magruder himself for its mootness — I refer to the Virginia battalion, under command of our gallant Major E. B. Montague, consisting of the Halifax Light Infantry under Capt. John Grammer; Chatham Grays, Capt Werth, and a part of the Old Dominion R tl s. Capt. Dickerson. Tuesday evening, June 5th. Capt.

Dickerson's company, one Hawitzer; Nottoway Cavalry, Capt. Jones; Charles City Cavalry, Cap

the two sections on an equality to this aspect by a display of magnanimity in the vote just given, the East has, by a large majority, consented to relinquish this exemption, and is ready to share with you all the burdens of Government and to meet all Virginia's liabilities. They come now to aid you, as you came in former days to aid them. The men of the Southern Confederate States glory in coming to your rescue. Let one heart, one mind, one energy, one power, nerve every patriot arm in a common cause. The heart that will not beat in unison with Virginia now, is a traitor's heart; the arm that will not strike home in her cause now, is palsied by a coward fear. The troops are posted at Huttonsville.--Come with your own good weapons and meet them as brothers.
