Worthy of notice. --A correspondent writes as follows from Amelia Court-House, Va.: "Pompey Scott, a slave of Adolphus Archer, of this county, to-day contributed twenty dollars to be expended for the comfort of the volunteers of this county. He is a very intelligent servant, and understands what he is giving his money for. I wonder what Abe and his myrmidons would think of this? He says he wants it known that he is ready to give his money to support the war."

he terrorism exercised over them, and the mean and unmanly suspicion to which they are subjected, have either left or are preparing to do so. One venerable Virginian, whose head is white with the frost of seventy years, is preparing to leave, which he has done at the sacrifice of over $7,000 in one species of property alone. He says that he is likely to reach Virginia a ruined man, with nothing left but honor, and an atmosphere of liberty. This venerable man is about the height of General Scott, and what is more, they were both at school together in William and Mary's College, Williamsburg. A Virginia Banking House has wound up at heavy sacriflees and left. Several merchants are also winding up and getting ready to leave. The Herald tries to persuade them that they can remain with impunity unmolested by a mob. But after the experience of Mr. Goodwin, and after a Virginian's house in Brooklyn was visited at night by a mob, while the husband was absent, and his wife, surro
poet immortalize our streams and our mountains? Homer made Scamander and Simois illustrious. Virgil made the Tiber classical, the four rivers of Paradise, and "Abanar and Pharphar, lucid streams" shine more beautifully in the pages of Milton, than they did in their proper person. Of late arirs "Auld Ayr" and the banks of bonny Doune, are familiar to our ears as strains of oft-repeated music, through the song of Burns. The rivers and lakes of Scootland murmur and flash through the pages of Scott. Byron makes us familiar with the Tagus and the Rhine, as with our own bed chambers.--But what bard is so strong in verse that he can make James River and Gillie's Creek, and Shockoe, and Westham, and Falling Creeks — all proper streams enough, and wanting nothing but immortal song to make them immortal — anything but vulgar? Suppose we take a hero, Smith, famous for killing Indians, as Achilles was famed for killing Trojans, and place him in a similar predicament with Achilles, when Simoi
?Ffice Adams Express Co., Richmond, Va., May 12, 1861 To the Editors of the Dispatch: Gentlemen:--In an article in your local column of Saturday, the following passage occurs: "Letters are sent from here to the North by way of the Adams Express. This may perhaps account for the appearance of a Richmond correspondence in the New York Herald and Washington Star;" and in one of the editorials it is suggested that Gen. Scott receives his information in regard to the position of affaire in Richmond and Montgomery through the same medium. As these remarks unanswered may be the means of casting suspicion where it is not deserved. I consider it due to the officers of this Company to say that every package offered to them by any person who is supposed to be unfriendly to the South is rejected; and during the brief period of the late interraption of the mails, aithough hundreds of letters were brought to this office to be sent to Northers cities, none were sent, unless the
