From Lynchburg.
[Special correspondence of the Dispatch.

Lynchburg,Va., June 13.
To-day business generally will be suspended and the day observed in accordance with the recommendation of the Confederate Congress. In my letter of yesterday a change of schedule was noted. I have since learned that there is now some doubt in relation to the change taking place, as some of the Western roads have ‘"bolted,"’ and do not seem disposed to come into the arrangement. A few days will, however, suffice to enable me to give the schedule determined on.

The reported success of our forces in the neighborhood of Hampton is gratifying in the extreme to all of us, and while waiting for confirmation and particulars, our prayer is, God grant the truth of the report may be verified.

Our Southern neighbors still continue to pour in, and with others which reached here yesterday was the First Rifle Regiment of Alabama, well armed and equipped in every respect. They went into camp at this place. The stream of men pouring in is so continuous that it is a wonder to all where so many come from. In Mississippi the rush to arms is so great that men have to be drafted to stay at home.

Another Louisiana Regiment arrived this morning. O. K.
