nd Dispatch.affairs in Lynchburg. Lynchburg, Va., May 30.
We have just recovered from the exciting rumors prevalent during the early part of the present week, and affairs seem to be settling down as usual.
Military affairs have been quite active since my last, but prudence forbids that details should be given.
I would, however, note the fact that the Arkansas regiment, all armed and equipped, left their encampment here yesterday morning for a post of duty.
The Warren Rifles, Capt. Nat. Harris, one hundred and ten men, composed of Mississippi boatmen, arrived here yesterday.
They are nearly all Irish and decidedly the hardiest looking company of men I have ever seen.
They say they are men who can either work or fight, as occasion may require, and seem devotedly attached to their officers.
The Rome Light Guard, Capt. B. J. Magruder, from Georgia, arrived in the same train with them.
They attracted much attention, and are well armed with Mississippi Rifles, Bowie knives an
turning, either in organized military bodies, or as private individuals, to render their assistance to her in this hour of trial and peril.
Nor is this enthusiasm confined to Virginia.
Middle and West Tennessee are thoroughly aroused.
Governor Harris has, within two weeks time, and without a proclamation, received and accepted offers for active service, and as a reserve, 55,000 volunteers, and could, if desired, raise one hundred thousand in two weeks more; and better material for soldie100 volunteers.
Men of wealth have contributed liberally to the cause.
John Overton, a wealthy citizen, besides giving his bond, with other men of wealth, for arming and equipping the State, has likewise donated $50,000 to the volunteers.
Governor Harris, though for a time in advance of the public sentiment of the State, saw the impending danger before others perceived it, and urged action is now fully sustained by the people, and a better man for his position cannot be found.
