Culpeper is fairly aroused, and almost every train bears away some of her gallant sons to join their companions in arms at Harper's Ferry. A cavalry company, the Little Fork Rangers, have been drilling here for some days past, getting ready to be called into active service. Another volunteer company has been formed, have elected officers, and are now only waiting the make-up of their uniforms previous to being mustered into active service. The Home Guard is ready at a moment's warning to protect the homes and firesides of those who have gone to the wars. The ladies, God bless them, are busy night and day making up clothes for the absent ones, and for those who are preparing to leave. ’
