From Western Virginia.

[Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.]
Lewisburg Feb. 26, 1862.
Gen. Henry Heth and staff arrived at this place a few days ago. He takes command of the forces of Kanawha. He was greeted with great applause by the troops, many of whom were in his old command, and all knew him by reputation. Great confidence is felt in this young and talented officer, and no one could have been sent who gives so universal satisfaction A Citizen.
