[Special Correspondence of the Dispatch.]
Norfolk, June 20, 1861.
A number of boys, between the ages of 14 and 17, have organized a company called the Norfolk Young Guerillas
, for the protection of our city.
These young gentlemen have gone to work in a very commendable spirit, and elected their officers, as follows: Captain, H. Hall
; 1st Lieutenant, S. B. Jordan
; 2d Lieutenant
, R. Granberry
; 3d Lieutenant, A. Jordan
; Orderly Sergeant
, John Samuels
.--They drill nightly.
, one of the hands at work on the sloop-of-war Plymouth
, at the Navy-Yard
, was accidentally drowned yesterday.--He leaves a wife and several small children entirely destitute.
Wm. H. Parker
, Chas. B. Duffield
, and a number of other gentlemen, leave here to-day on their way out West
, to join Brig. Gen. H. A. Wise
's serfs at the Rip Raps
have been amusing themselves for several days by firing shell at our battery on Sewell's Point
; but with no effect.
They fall harmless.
The health of the troops in this section is remarkably good.
