[Special dispatch to the Richmond Dispatch.]
arrival of Senator Douglas and lady — enthusiastic reception — speeches, &c.

Lynchburg, Va., Nov. 29. --Senator Douglas and lady arrived here on, the Tennessee train to-night. He spoke from the balcony of the Norvell House to a crowd of near 2,000 persons. The subject discussed by him was the present state of affairs in the country.--He thought the election of Lincoln no cause for a dissolution of the Union. He was for fighting in the Union and under the Constitution; thought Southern Congressmen should resume their seats in Congress, otherwise the Republican party would be in the majority.--They (the Republicans) are now powerless.

Horace Maynard, of Tennessee, who accompanied Mr. Douglas, made a strong conservative speech, and endorsed all Senator Douglas had said.

Both speeches were applauded moderately. Their personal receptions were enthusiastic. They are en route to Washington.
