departure of the "Clarkesville Blues," commanded by Captain G. W. Emtey, on the 16th instant, for Richmond.-- They went off in fine spirits, and, like the Roman Senator at the gat of Pompell, were willing for poster to find their skeletons and their armors where duty required them to stand. This company is composed of the elite of the Clarkesvile vicinity — men who have abandoned the genial pursuite of literature and professional life for the more arduous duties of the camp. The "Chambliss Grays," Captain Baskerville, a fine looking and gallant company, left the same morning for the same destination of the "Blues." The crops about here are exceedingly promising, a large proportion of the tobacco land has been planted in corn. Wheat looks remarkably well, and there are no apprehensions now that it will be materially injured. We may lately anticipate a bountiful supply of breadstuffs. Old Charlotte, the land of Henry and Randolph, is thoroughly awake. A company calle

Clarksville, Mecklenburg co., May 21, 1861. The County Court yesterday appropriated $35,000 for arming and equipping the volunteers. In this appropriation provision is made for the Cavalry, Capt. Goode, now at Ashland; for the Clarksville Blues, Capt. Finley, and Chambliss Grays, Capt. Baskervill, both of which have their rendezvous at Richmond; also for five additional companies. There are four now forming. Capt. Tucker Carrington is raising a company on this side of the Roanoke, Mr. T. T. Boswell one on Bluestone, Mr. Oliver one in the neighborhood of the city, and Col. William Townes, jr., one in the neighborhood of Boydton. All of them, I believe, have the legal number, and will organize at once. Mecklenburg is thoroughly aroused, and will furnish more than her quota of men and money. A servant of Thomas B. Wall, of this county, insisted so much on going with Capt. Finley's company, that his master consented for him to go. He was told that his clothes were
King William Co., May 20, 1861. King William votes about 600. Four hundred names are on her muster-roll. Of the latter, one company is in the field, under the command of W. R. Aylett. Another company (Cavalry) under B. B. Douglas, will soon be ready; and still another, of artillery, is organizing. The "Silver Grays," 65 in number, under the command of a popular veteran, H. Littlepage, have offered as a Home Guard. Their heads present a shining mark, but they march as sprightly as boys. When I first saw them drill, I supposed the company made up of widowers. I would respectfully suggest that our supply of medicine and food throughout the country be used judiciously and economically, so as to insure plenty. Let us raise corn, wheat, potatoes, hay and forage crops to the extent of our ability, to be prepared for a long war. Our duty as patriots require us to be active, and to remember that a country is more injured by neglect than by actual destruction of property.
