Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch. affairs in Old Louisa. Louisa C. H. May 24, 1861. I send you a line from this good old secession county. Our election passed off very quietly on yesterday, although there was polled in the county a much larger vote than usual, and the people are very deeply interested in the great question of the day. All of the precincts, except three small ones, have been officially heard from and unofficial returns have been received from them, so that the result in the county is pretty well ascertained. We had no vote in opposition to the Ordinance of Secession — A. R.

Nelson is probably elected to the House of Delegates, though the official returns from the three precinets yet to be heard from may alter the result. Mr. Nelson was the only candidate in the field, but many of the friends of Will
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.Gen. Scott and the Lincoln Administration. Richmond, Va. May 24, 1861. A distinguished gentleman whose name is known and respected in all sections of this country, and whose veracity has never been questioned, recently passed through this city, and while here he made known a very important fact. He said that early in the history of the Lincoln Administration General Scott addressed a letter to Abraham Lincoln, stating that he would never fight against Virginia and the South, and recommending a conciliatory policy. W. H. Seward replied, assuring the old General that Mr. Lincoln would coerce, even though it might lead to securing another Commander-in-Chief of the U. S. forces. General Scott finally yielded to Black Republican pressure, though the Administration doubt as to his being heart and soul with them, and hence are in favor of substituting a younger and more energetic man. I believe the above information is reliable, and therefo
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.the election in Montgomery. Christianssure, May 24, 1861. --Our election came off on yesterday in a very quiet manner, and old Montgomery, as usual, has proved true to her interest, and to the cause of the South. We have heard from all the precincts except one, and there has not been a single vote against the ratification of the Ordinance of Secession. We are of opinion that the entire vote in favor of ratification will be about 1,350. I understand that the vote in Floyd county was unanimous in favor of the Ordinance. Rice D. Montague was elected to the Legislature without opposition. M. D. R.

lexandria. It seems to be true that a body of Federal troops has advanced to Fairfax Court-House to take possession of the junction of the Orange and the Alexandria and the Manpas Gap Railroads, with the view of intercepting the advance of the Virginia troops towards Alexandria from Richmond and other points. Nearly 3,000 troops arrived here yesterday, comprising some from New York and the two Ohio Regiments. The Third Connecticut Regiment came in this morning. Washington,May 24, 1861.--Our city is in the greatest state of excitement. All the news depots are besieged by the excited populace. Orders have been issued by the War Department for the immediate recall of all the regular troops from New Mexico and Utah.--The troops can be readily spared from these posts. There are now two hundred and fifty thousand men under arms, in the pay of the United States. They will all be equipped by Saturday night. The steamship Pocahontas and the river steamer Mount
