Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.justice to Charlottesville — Hospitality of the inhabitants, &c. Came Jefferson, June 17, 1861. Your University correspondent, J. R. Dr, having made an incorrect statement in regard to the New Market Volunteers, from Nelson co, Va., calculated to injure the officers in command of this post, and the citizens of Charlottesville and the University, I deem it proper to state that the New Market Volunteers were, immediately upon arrival, quartered at the Delavan House, midway between Charlottesville and the University. where preparations were made to receive us; but having ascertained that we could obtain more commodious quarters, possessing greater advantages, at the University, was immediately set out for that place without walling to prepare dinner; we took a snack, however, which kept us from getting very hungry.

Mrs. Wm. H. Macfarland, Mrs. F. G. Ruffin, Miss. Catherine H. Myers, Mrs. F. E. Nelson. Mrs. H. B. Gwathmey, Mrs. Jno. Stewart Walker.
