Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.public meeting in Rockingham — the Convention &c. Harrisonburg, Va., Jan, 21, 1861. To-day being Court day an unusually large crowd came to town, for the double purpose of attending to business, and to hear the different candidates for the Convention express their sentiments. The sentiment of the people seemed to be to exhaust every honorable means of compromise before ensuing extreme measures. There will be a large number of candidate to ta resolution, requesting the County Court to appropriate $2,000 for the purpose of arming the county. The meeting then adjourned, with three cheers for the Rockingham regiment and Southern rights. After the meeting, an opportunity was offered to the candidates for the Convention to address the people. There is other news, but we leave that for your excellent correspondent "Pen." I send this as a show of the political sentiment of the people of old Rockingham. Singles ticks.
