Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.
Military organization.

Pittsylvania C. H., Va., Jan. 7, 1861.
Everybody seems to think that the Union is dissolved, and war will be, if it has not already been, declared; consequently we are preparing for the worst. We organized a splendid cavalry corps here on Saturday last. The men are all young, strong, able-bodied fellows, who will do good service if their services are ever called for. C. E. Flournoy was elected Captain; J. D. Coles, 1st Lieutenant; C. E. Dabney, 2d Lieutenant In a few weeks we hope to be armed and fully equipped, if the next County Court makes the proper appropriation. Old Pittsylvania will never be wanting in the day of trial, when the rights of the South are endangered. *
