Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.from the Howitzer Camp. Camp Chimborazo, near Richmond, May 16, 1861. The Howitzer Battalion came here from Howard's Grove Wednesday morning, and have gone to soldiering in earnest. Our Camp is under strict military rule, no one permitted to leave except on special business. Our Commandants do everything for the comfort of the men that officers can possibly do. Drills are three times a day: from 5½ to 6½, 10½ to 11½. and 3½ to 5½; and dress parade at 6½, together with sentry and police duty we have little time to spare. We are favored with the visit of the fair ladies of Richmond every evening, a pleasure which we assure you is most highly appreciated by us "soldier boys." The detachment now on duty at West Point are expected to return in a few days. The men in camp are all well and hearty, and as jovial a set of fellows as ever banded together. St. Ju
