Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.more troops--Texas Rangers, &c. Charlotte Court-House, Va., June 23d, 1861. Our village is to-day honored with another body of Confederate troops, consisting or men from different States, mostly from Western Virginia. Ohio and Texas are also represented in their number. They style themselves the "Texas Rangers," and are on their way to join that noble band of patriots at or near Phillippi. They are fighting on their own hook. All they ask is for one glimpse of Old Abe, Scott, or Butler, or any of their picayune crowd. Many of these Rangers are praying Christians, who daily invoke the continuance of Heaven's richest blessings upon our Confederate companies, and they all seem to have such control over themselves as will disarm our invading enemies, and will "Lay the proud usurpers low; Liberty will be in every blow; We will be free." Luola.
n. The marching distance for either column would not be over one hundred or one hundred and fifty miles, and could easily be accomplished in a week's time. There are excellent wagon roads on the proposed routes, which at this season were in good order. It is the opinion of Gen. McClellan that this demonstration can be made, and the forty thousand troops brought in this way before Richmond by the 1st of July, in time to co-operate with the forces of General Patterson from the North and General Butler from the East. The plan has been submitted to General Scott, and if he approves of it, it will be carried into execution. The Washington correspondent of the same paper gives an idea of what old Fuss and Feathers thinks of these busy writers: General Scott was heard to say yesterday that he would have captured the rebels at Harper's Ferry, and all their munitions of war, had it not been for the newspaper press (in their anxiety to give early news) keeping the rebels fully po
d movements of these martial pretenders, we can no longer doubt that there is a humorous side even to war, and that it has its farce as well as its tragedy. Major Gen. Butler, who is a Massachusetts attorney, writes a long rigmarole to the War Department at Washington about his purposes and movements, and the dissonant brayings of have his force in position to either fight or run away," forgetting that their position for adopting the latter alternative was the best, with the exception of Gen. Butler's arrangement at Great Bethel, which has yet been taken during the war. We have no means of ascertaining the exact time which was made by Schenck's men at Vienna, so as to institute a comparison between the foot race on the Vienna course and at Great Bethel; but there need be no jealousy between the friends of Butler and Schenck. The first kept out of the way, and the last got out of the way, which is all that can be asked of the highest militia officer's genius in the ranks of our enemi
The Georgia deserters. --Captain Smith, of the Macon Volunteers, publishes the subjoined communication in the Norfolk Herald. It is stated in the Northern papers that on the arrival of these deserters at Fortress Monroe, their stories were so contradictory that Gen. Butler had them imprisoned as spies: Private Alouzo E. Kimball and George B. Hemstead, of the Macon (Ga.) Volunteers, deserted on yesterday and escaped by a small boat to the U. S. steamer Anacostia, the commander of which took them up. Kimball was a native of New Hampshire, and Hempsted a native of Connecticut. Kimball went off after having borrowed both money and clothes from members of my company. He also stole a pistol from one of the non-commissioned officers of the corps. He is both a rogue and a deserter. Hempsted, previous to his desertion, had always borne an unblemished reputation. He was doubtless influenced to desert by Kimball. Both of these men voluntarily enlisted to serve the Conf

city of Williamsburg, to partake of the hospitalities of one of her most modest and most gifted sons, Dr. John M. Galt. Hampton, now overrun by the mongrel mercenaries of Lincoln, under the control and direction of that cross-eyed scoundrel, Butler, is largely represented in this town by families from that once pleasant and thriving place. You meet them on the thoroughfares and in the churches in Williamsburg, and the citizens have thrown open their houses and tendered their hospitalities tallic coffin to receive the mouldering form of him who should have fallen in a better cause. When he saw how Southern men could feel and act, and must have contrasted their high-toned courtesy with the brutal and fiendish conduct of such men as Butler, it is said by those who were present that he bowed his head, overcome with emotion, and said in choking tones to Capt. Douthat, " I did not expect this." Will this simple incident find its way into a Northern paper? I doubt it. To-day we h
