From Camp Pickens.[special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Camp Pickens, June 14, 1861. Yesterday, appointed by his Excellency President Davis as a day of fasting and prayer, was respected, as far as possible, throughout the Camp as a time of supplication of the Divine favor, though towards the close of the day, when the Dispatch brought at the intelligence of our glorious victory at Bethel Church, the prim dia of Virginia go y t second war of independence, independence of injure aid gave way to thanksgiving for the mighty assistance vouchaafed us on the 10th of June last, by the Lord God of Sabbath — Surely, in the quaint language of the olden time, it was a "clowning mercy." and has satisfactorily settled one thing which our lenders should hereafter take into consideration when I effecting their plans, and that is, that the proportion of Yankee soldiers we may encounter, with an assurance of victory, is about four to one. Those of our men, who have not hitherto been full
Correspondence of the Richmond day. Mr. Jackson, Shenandoah Co., June 14, 1861 Yesterday will not soon be forgotten here. The day has produced impressions for good that will bear patriotic fruits. In the morning the Rev. A. R. Rude, and not S. P. Ruder, as you printed it not long ago, presented a handsome flag, the gift and work of Mrs. Virginia Farrar, to the Allen Infantry company with an appropriate address, to which Capt.

The writer is a daughter of a gentleman who, for more than twenty years, in a position requiring arduous duties, faithfully served a country which now rewards him by destroying his property and driving his children from their homes.

Dear Cousin: On my safe arrival home I fully intended to write you instanter, but was prevented by the appearance of those imps into our town, who just walked in and took as quiet possession as if they had been born and bred in it. Of all cut throats, low-lived rascals, I think these take the lead. I knew I was bad before, but never once did I imagine that hatred, malice and murder could take such complete dominion of me, as when I, day after day, witnessed the pollution of our Vi
From Winchester.[special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Winchester, Va., June 14th, 1861. Permit me to address you a short letter from this point, composed of a little news, small matters and things in general. There is a good deal of excitement here, owing to the fact that a large body of the Northern despot's hirelings have taken possession of Romney, about forty- two miles distant, and are expected to march on this place. However, this point will not be so easily taken as Romney, which in her patriotism and zeal for the Southern cause, had sent nearly all her men away to drive back the ruthless invader from the soil of the Old Dominion. Troops are coming in great numbers, and it is believed that they will welcome those minions of tyranny at the point of the bayonet, and greet them to bloody graves. Our company, the "Liberty Hall Volunteers," composed of the students of Washington College, Lexington, Va., numbering seventy, arrived here yesterday evening, together wit
