Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.spirit of old Caroline — fine hundred men will take the field. Ruther Glen, Caroline county, Va., April 18, 1861. We are taking matters quietly and coolly up here. We consider the taking of Fort Sumter but the prelude to a grander exhibition on the part of the Confederate States.--When the news arrived of the surrender, &c., a glad smile lighted up the features of every one--even of the most sanguine reconstructionist. As Gov. Wise remarked, or hoped, the "terrapin" begins to perform natural locomotions; and, if Virginia has not lost all her reputation, we may yet hope to see her occupying her once enviable position. She can, however, as facts clearly demonstrate, never appear as the "guide star" of any Union, or any State, and many of those who have professed undying devotion to her honor and interest, will bitterly curse the hour that saw them in a waiting mood. We intend to send at least five hundred men to meet the coho
old Ruffin, to that true and faithful heart. The four-score years old patriot, who took the foremost part. But be the glory given, as to Carolina due, The bravest of the brave, and truest of the true. Oh, favored land, that boasts a son, Davis, the second Washington. Know that Virginia, now by thee, Will battle for her liberty; Her sons, beneath thy flag unfurled, Will hurl defiance to the world, And, fighting hand in hand with thee, Will conquer, to be doubly free, Honor to glorious Wise, the fearless and the bold, Who dared to tell a nation the truth, that should be told; But unto Carolina be the glory evermore, For, she hath done a holder deed than o'er was done before. Aye, clothe her name with glory bright-- Around it throw a radiant light; For, oh! it is a glorious sight, This nation rising in the right, And Carolina well may claim The greatest, most unsullied name-- Brave, and magnanimous, and pure, Her fame will o'er remain, her power endure. Honor to them all
wning event of the secession movement — it unites the South. But how could it have been otherwise? The noble old mother never faltered yet in the performance of a duty; it is too late for her to do so now. Rich as she is in deeds that are writ upon the brightest pages of history, this last work of duty and patriotism surpasses them all. A lady of New Orleans thus amend the song of "Virginia and the Confederate Wagon": Hurrah! for Old Virginia, She's slow but very sure-- Her Wise men urged her on, and now She's knocking at the door Of the brave Secession wagon-- Then set it open wide, We've kept a cozy corner for Her dear old self inside. Chorus.--Room in the wagon! Room in the wagon! In the strong Confederate wagon, For our darling and our pride! The New Orleans Picayune of the 19th instant says: The reception, yesterday, by telegraph, of the glad tidings of Virginia's determination to join the Confederate States, produced in our city the most en
