Amelia Springs.

--We understand that the large and intelligent body of visitors to this retreat are making themselves as happy as the times and the season will permit them to be. A few evenings since a very agreeable entertainment was gotten up under the direction of Mrs. Semple, daughter of President Tyler, assisted by Dr. Spotswood, of the Navy. It consisted of recitations and vocal music. Some very excellent and patriotic poetry was recited by intelligent little girls. The following is a list of the principal exercises, which were received with much applause by the audience:

Willie McBlair--‘"Virginia! Late but Sure,"’ by Dr. Wm. Holcombe, of Mississippi, formerly of Virginia.

Laura Chilton--‘"Our Flag,"’ written by Robert Jaquelyn, of Alabama.

Minnie McBlair--‘"Farewell to Yankee Doodle."’ By a lady of Alexandria.

Emily Chilton--‘"Southerners hear, Your Country calls!"’ Sung to the tune of Dixie. Written by Albert G. Pike, of Arkansas.
