Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.from Camp Montague. Camp Montague, June 7. This is not so important a place as to justify your corespondent in occupying a weekly place in your columns, nor in wasting as much of his time as will be necessary for such; but he does consider it to be of sufficient consequence to merit a notice of some noticeable facts connected with its movements. Major Ward, the Commandant of this post, arrived day before yesterday, and took charge of matters pertaining to his office yesterday. He is quite commanding in appearance, being in height something over six feet, and, should we be called into an engagement, his voice must sound clearly over the heads of his men, as well as above the roar of the cannon. An Episcopal minister, his presence brings with it a moral power that in such a cause will be invaluable. Would that all our efficient officers could add to their dignity the surpassing dignity and strength which surround the t n soldier.

Death of Charlotte Bronte's father. --The Rev. Patrick Bronte, the rather of the popular authoress, "Currer Bell," died at the parsonage in Haworth, on the 7th of June.--He was born in the year 1777, and was consequently 84 years old at the time of his death. He died comparatively alone, passing from earth as he had lived in it. A cold, gloomy, unsympathizing man, he had the reputation of being, and will be remembered as, the father of one of the rarest families that were ever born to man.

ose excellent article we copied on Monday, expresses most eloquently its horror of the character of the war of invasion of the South, and the diabolical sentiments of those who wage it. It quotes the language of the leading Black. Republican presses and inquires, "Was ever more hellish sentiments uttered? Where, in the annals of despotism or the records of its butcheries, shall we seek for a parallel to this?" On Tuesday we gave a very important article from the Paris "Pays," of the 7th June, in which that paper declared that insanity seemed to rule at Washington city. The Pays is a semi-official paper, and its views are considered in consonance always with those of the Emperor. It is exceedingly caustic upon the Lincoln Government. Referring to its truculent tone in its dispatch to Mr. Dayton, the bombast and effrontery of Cassius Clay and Adams, and the Lincoln ultimatum of war against any European power which will take part in this quarrel, the Pays quietly says, "unable
