Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.
from Camp Ashland.

Camp Ashland, Hanover county, May 30th, 1861.
The excitement is running very high in our cavalry camp — all are anxious to be sent away to meet the Baboon and his hordes. Tuesday evening two companies were transported with their horses and provisions, on the Central Railroad. This evening the Governor's Guard and the Chesterfield Troop will leave in the same way, and for the same destination.
