Coming home.

--The feeling against persons of Southern birth in all sections of the North betrays the existence of the most diabolical and rancorous hate on the part of our Northern brethren (?) A patriotic utterance in favor of Southern rights is visited with insults and violence by organized bands of scoundrels who would not dare, save in the excitement of the present times, to look a decent white man in the face. The consequence is, that many Virginia gentlemen, heretofore doing business at the North, have been compelled to return. Two of our citizens, doing business in Philadelphia, viz: Capt. Chas. Richardson and Jno. Archer Collen, quit the "City of Brotherly Love" on the above occount, arriving here yesterday evening. The feeling against Virginians is very strong in that city.

We have been requested to state that though certain scoundrels in that city had evinced a willingness to perpetrate an indignity on Mr. Ro. Tyler, as reported in yesterday's Dispatch, they had not proceeded to the extremity of offering (as stated) a specific reward for his capture Mr. Tyler is now no doubt safe from the influence of abolition frenzy.
