The Thirtieth Virginia Regiment. Marcher' Point. July 28, 1861 To the Editors of the Dispatch:--Permit me, through the columns f your paper, to inform the numerous friends of Company "E," Thirtieth Regiment Virginia Volunteers, of our whereabouts, and to contradict the rumor of our entire demolition at the late battle at Stone Bridge. We regret that we did not arrive there in time to aid in securing that glorious victory for the Southern cause, or even to join in the chase after the hordes of Northern plunderers who had come to devastate our homes, trample upon our rights and liberties, to enslave our wives, our sisters and our mothers — in a word, to tear from the brow of virtue its wreath of glory, and to place there the stigma of shame and dishonor; but who, thank God, cowered before the splendid charges of Southern freemen, and who, panic stricken, fled in shameful disorder from soil too sacred for the invading tramp of such god-forsaken men We took up the line of m

A correspondent, who was attached to Latham's Battery in the battle of July 21st, desires to correct a statement which has been published, to the effect that the battle was commenced at Stone Bridge by Gen. Evans, with certain regiments, supported by two pieces of the Washington Artillery. The writer says: "In the first place there was no battle at the Stone Bridge, and in the second place none of the guns of the Washington Artilletion on that memorable day. One other paragraph we copy. "Having ascertained that Lieut. Dempsey, of Company G, New York Second Regiment, reported in the Baltimore Sun as killed, was in one of the hundred hospitals convenient to Manassas, Stone Bridge and Centreville, I went to see him, and found he had a dangerous wound in the head, caused by a bursting bomb. He told me he had a wife living in New York city, and I insert this for her benefit, trusting it may meet her eye; and will venture
