The spirit of Virginia.

In Capt. Grant's company, from Washington county, which has lately proceeded to the Northwest, is a volunteer named Elisha Franklin, who is seventy-two years old! The old man was left by the cars at one of the stations, but pursued his course on foot to the stopping place of his company, ten miles beyond, which he walked in an hour and a half. Such is a specimen of the spirit of the Southern people. Such a people are invincible.
