--Under the call of the Governor, who is Commander in Chief of the State forces, military companies are being formed in almost every neighborhood in this section of Virginia. East of Richmond the country people are organizing as cavalry for local defence; and West of it, on the Deep Ran road, on mounted corps will be organized and equipped in a very few days. These commands are designed for local purposes, and will do good service, but if the necessity arises, each and all of them will take the field as regulars.
