Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.deep snow in the mountains. Independence, Grayson Co., Va.,December 31, 1860. The Christmas holidays have passed without anything occurring to break the monotony of our winter existence in the mountains. In spite of the crisis through which it seems that our country is passing, several new houses will soon be finished in our town, and six hundred dollars are to be expended for the improvement of our principal streets. This looks like enterprise. We have just had a great snow. It now lies eighteen inches deep on the frozen earth. The mountains at present a fine appearance. Orange.
Winter. --The first month of winter is more than half gone, and we are jogging on pretty rapidly towards Christmas; yet we have thus far but little real wintry weather, and the ice question is beginning to be seriously discussed. Whether the war continues or not, we want to be independent of the North in this respect, and as we shall probably have a hard freeze ere long, we hope every man who has the means of doing so, will pack away a supply of ice. It will "pay," depend upon it.
