There were 135 suits commenced in our County Court, which will do for one day — There will be probably 500 executions issued from our County Court at the March term. It is now showing, hailing, raining, blowing, freezing, and cold; and the roads have no bottom.

1. The news of the surrender of Fort Sumter to the Confederate States was received here last Saturday evening per telegraph, from Richmond, at about 4 o'clock. It created great rejoicing among our people, who are since that time united in sentiment, all being in favor of Virginia making common cause with her Southern sister States. At a meeting Saturday night, speeches were delivered by Messrs. W. T. Sutherlin, B. M. Jones, Dr. Withers, and others. Monday night Major Withers and Vincent Witcher, Esq., spoke to the citizens of this place, and especially the young men, to come forward and join one or the other of our volunteer companies; a good many enlisted. Capt. Graves, of the Blues, made at the same time an appeal to the audience to subscribe money for procuring better arms for our volunteer companies. Several gentlemen responded to the tune of between $300 and $400. I understand the subscription was raised yesterday to about $2,000--two gentlemen giving about $500 each.
