All honor to Old Bedford.

--The noble response which old Bedford has made to the call for volunteers, is worthy of all praise, and richly entitles, her to a place in the front rank with those counties which have so liberally sent forth their sons for the defence of our beloved country. The services of three Bedford companies were the first that were tendered and accepted after the Governor's call; and since that time new organizations have been gotten up in every neighborhood, until now almost every able-bodied man in the county is a member of some volunteer company. Six companies from the noble old county are already in service, five more are ready to march at a moment's warning, and two more are being gotten up, which will be organized in a few days. Thirteen companies in all, it will thus be seen, old Bedford has sent and is ready to send to the war — a number equal if not greater than has been sent by any other county in the State. All honor to the noble old county.--Lynchburg Repub.
