Departure of Virginia Volunteers. --The 3rd Regiment of Virginia volunteers, consisting of the Young Guard, Capt. Charters, (right company;) Emmett Guard, Capt. Lloyd; Marion Rifles, Capt. Lybrock; Va. Life Guards, Capt. Walker; Ashland Grays, Capt. Tucker; Sidney Guard, Capt. Dance, and Company A, (Henrico Grays, formerly of the 33d Regiment,) Capt. Atkinson, left Richmond yesterday, to the number of 900 men, and took the steamer for the East. Col. Thos. P. August was in command. The Regiment made a very fine appearance. A great many of the friends of the soldiers, ladies and gentlemen, went down to the wharf to bid them adieu. Several of the companies in this Regiment were prepared for service by the exertions of Col. J. H. Richardson, who, though he has no command, is nevertheless every inch a soldier.
The Smith's Point Light-Ship again — Somebody hurt. The following interesting and authentic account of the engagement at Mills' Creek, Wycomico River, is furnished to us by Mr. Lucien Hall, of the Lancaster (Va.) Grays: It is untrue that any of our "rebels" were killed in the recent skirmish at the recapture of the Smith's Point light boat.

&c. Wytheville, Va. May 23, 1861. W. H. Cooke is elected to the House by a large majority over Col. Graham, our late Representative. Everything passed off quietly, I am proud to say; at the two precincts heard from not a Union vote was given, and I pray this may be the case, not only in our county, but throughout the State. Seeing that we are determined to be free from the regime of Old Abe, our county has done well in this glorious struggle, and will do more. Already she has her "Grays" at Harper's Ferry, with some three or four more companies ready in a few days to do valiant service in the cause. Captain John Buchanan (no relation of the Ex-James; oh, no, the Captain is a gentleman and a patriot,) has a fine company; Captain Jackson Grayson, of Bland county, one of the best in the State; and last, though not least, one of the finest companies of young men the State can produce was organized a few days since Their Captain is R. H. Gleaves, alias Lightning Rod. The said C
