From Pig's Point.
[Special correspondence of the Dispatch.]

Pig's Point, Camp Jackson, July 18, 1861.
The weather for the past few days has been exceedingly cool — resembling that of the Fall Rains, too, are of frequent occurrence, which come in good time for the crops. Everything of this kind looks quite promising, corn and potatoes particularly.

A general review was had the other day by Col Blanchard of the forces stationed in this vicinity. The Colonel speaks in the highest terms of the 4th Georgia Regiment.

We were favored with an eloquent speech a few evening's since, by the distinguished Joseph Lumpkin, of the Supreme Bench of Georgia. The Ex-Governor has several sons and sons-in-law in the Confederate Army.--Every impulse of this noble veteran's heart beats in unison with the cause of his country. I noticed when he threw back his aged locks from his brow, a calm, determined look was depicted in his countenance, which meant liberty or death

Capt. Fulsom, of the Twiggs' Volunteers, leaves our camps for a few days to recruit his health at the springs. He complains of rheumatism, which gives him some displeasure. The Captain is a young man, in the vigor of life, and from his experience in the Kansas war against John Brown, he will prove adequate to every emergency in the present war. I have said this much that his numerous friends everywhere may know the reason why he leaves our camps. Gorman.
