Patriotism in Lynchburg.

The Lynchburg Republicans in forms us that there is not a man, woman, child or negro in that town, who is not right upon the great question of the day, and ready to do or die.--The ladies are working with true patriotism. Lynchburg will turn out at least six hundred men, at the first tocsin of war, as brave and as true as ever marched to the battle field.

We copied from the Republican, a day or two since, an offer made by Henry D. Flood, Esq., to be one of ten to give five hundred dollar for equipping the volunteers of Lynchburg. We now learn that the number was made up on Saturday. We give the names of the patriotic and liberal gentlemen: Henry D. Flood, Seth Woodruff, Geo. D. Davis, A. B. Rucker, Chiswell Danney, Samuel McCorkle, John T. Davis, Geo. M. Rucker, John Wm. Murrell, Jos. H. Wilson. All honor to them now and hereafter.

In addition to the above, we learn from the Republican that the Merchants' Bank Directory, at a meeting Saturday evening, agreed to contribute, in their individual capacity, the sum of four thousand dollars in aid of the volunteer companies. The Board of Directors of the Exchange Bank of Lynchburg, at a meeting Saturday, made a donation of 200 dollars to each one of the volunteer companies of that city, making 1,000 dollars in all.

Mr. L. H. Lyne, of Lynchburg, formerly of the U. S. Navy, having tendered his services to Gov. Letcher, left yesterday for Norfolk, in obedience to the following dispatch:

"Lt. Leonard H. Lyne--Services accepted.--Report to Capt. Forrest at Norfolk. Commission will be sent to you at Norfolk.

"George W. Munford,
"Secretary of the Commonwealth."

Dr. Thomas L. Walker, of Lynchburg, has offered to uniform and fully equip any and all persons who intend to join the companies now formed, or to be formed, in that city, for the defence of the State.

The Artillery Company of Lynchburg return their most sincere acknowledgments to "a lady, " for her donation of one hundred dollars to aid in equipping the company.
