Henrico county.

--The vote at the Court-House yesterday was comparatively small — but little more than a hundred persons having recorded their names up to 4 o'clock in the afternoon. All these were in favor of the amended Constitution and the proposed restriction of suffrage. The Board of Exemption met yesterday at the Court House, and quite a large number of persons submitted their claims for relief from militia duty. At the hour of adjournment it appeared that thirty-two were successful in their applications. The Board will meet again to-day at 11 o'clock. The polls will be re-opened this morning, and all citizens who desire to do so can record their votes for or against the amended Constitution.

The 33d regiment of militia is ordered to assemble on Monday next, at 10 o'clock, at the hall of Company "G," Church Hill, for the purpose of going into camp at the Fair Grounds Each man is ordered to provide himself with two blankets, and such arms as he may be able to procure. Nothing is said about tincups, canteens or kettles; though it is probable that there will be no objection if any soldier chooses to equip himself with those useful utensils.
