Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.
Old Hanover — the Dispatch — the crops.

Pisgah, Hanover, May 27th, 1861.
I have never troubled you in asking a space in your columns, but seeing so many farmers speaking and writing of their good crops, I cannot refrain this evening from writing and asking a publication in that good old Dispatch of Richmond.

Old Hanover is all right — her noble sons are falling into the line of battle every day, to fight for their liberties and rights. She has now in service three companies of volunteers, &c., one of cavalry. Capt. Wm. Wingfield is also forming another company.

The crops are looking as finely as I ever saw them in my life. The corn crops are late, but good, and the wheat crops will average a third more than it did last year. There will not be much fruit, but I presume enough to supply your markets. You can judge from this whether Lincoln will starve the South out in sixty days or not, as he predicted he would.
