Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.
Nominations in Buckingham.

Buckingham Co., Va., January 15, 1861.
Our County Court came off yesterday.--Early in the morning Col. Edmund W. Hubbard was announced as a county candidate for the State Convention, to be held on the 13th of February. It is understood that Col. Hubbard is for immediate action on the part of Virginia. Later in the day, Mr. Chas. L. Christian was also announced as a county candidate for the some Convention. It is understood that Mr. Christian is in favor of further below, still hoping (against all hope) that some concessions will be made on the side of the North. There is but (little doubt about public sentiment in our county on the subject. As far as I have been able to ascertain, there will be a large majority in favor of immediate State action, having given up all hope of any adjustment in the Union. Indeed, we no longer have a Union, and the people are rapidly taking their position in favor of resuming our original rights. We are in perilous times, and in the midst of a revolution. The people feel and fully appreciate it. May we act with the wisdom of a Christian people, doing and asking right and justice with calmness and forbearance. G.
