Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.
flag raising — going South--war news, &c.

Appomattox Co., Va., April 16th, 1861.
Seldom have I ever known such intense excitement as has been occasioned in this county by the war news from Charleston. The effect has been to break down the barriers which have kept the people apart, and now there is a general and deep sympathy for the Southern Confederacy. I was at a flag-raising in this county a few days since, and felt proud to see the enthusiasm which seemed to pervade every heart.

It is still raining, and has been for about a week.

Owing to the fact that so little is being done in Lynchburg, our farmers speak of sending their produce to Richmond this year.
