New President. --J. Marsden Smith, Esq. has been elected President of the Farmers' Bank of Norfolk, vice Duncan Robertson, resigned.
From Norfolk. [Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Norfolk, Va., Aug. 22, 1861. The Spanish Consul at this place, Duncan Robertson, Esq., went down to the Roads under a flag of truce, yesterday morning, to understand something about the arrival of the frigate mentioned in yesterday's letter. The officer from the Fort who met the flag of once informed Mr. Robertson that she was a Dutch, and not a Spanish or French frigate, as before stated, and that she had left the Point and gonMr. Robertson that she was a Dutch, and not a Spanish or French frigate, as before stated, and that she had left the Point and gone seaward.

The only drawback that prevented their time from being more agreeable than it otherwise would have been, was the great dignity of understanding the English language, and of our understanding correctly their language. But this difficulty was obviated in a degree by several French gentlemen in our city, who, I am glad to see, showed them every attention. One of them gave me his photograph
