Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.a Patriot of Halifax, Va. South Boston, Va., May 22, 1861. I met yesterday with Mr. Childress, the overseer of Mr. George Richardson. He told me that he had joined Mr. W. Ballard Bruce's company of volunteers. He said he went to his employer, (a large farmer,) who has been confined to his bed of sickness for a long time, and told him what he had done; and Mr. R. told him "he was glad to hear it; to go and fight for his country; that his wages should continue the same for the balance of the year; that the same finding would be given his wife as if he were still attending his business in person, and if he lived to return, he could get his business again." Can such a people be subjugated? Never! never! May God restore the health of Mr. R, and allow him to live to see our armies victorious, the liberty of the South achieved, and to enjoy peace and happiness in this our now distracted country. E. B.
