Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.political — Diphtheria — Typhoid fever — Longevity — Religious revival — weather — surgical operation, &c. Harrisonburg, Va., Dec. 12. On Thursday next, (Court day,) we will have a meeting to define the position of Rockingham on the affairs of the country. What will be the action of the meeting I do not know, but I suppose strong Union resolutions will be adopted. I surmise that much, from the fact that several leaders propose resolutions for their adoption, already cut and dried, which resolutions or something of their shape will be published in the papers of the county this week, which will in some measure forestall public opinion. The press is a great power in this section, and so long as it is not perverted, and remains pure as now, it is of course to be considered a blessing. Diphtheria, the scourge of the present day, in this and surrounding counties, prevails with a malignant fury, which seems not to abate in the lea
real Professor, with whom I have traveled the world round--Europe, Asia, Africa, America, Australia and Oceanics — is at present in Alexandria, and no where else. He is to be at Mechanics' Hall. Richmond, next Monday. Yet I hear of pseudo Prof. Anderson's both South and West of me. Now, the schoolmen of the days of Abelaid contended that it is a property of angels to be in two places at one time. Angels may be — I don't know; but Prof. Anderson is no angel. He is the same gentleman who astonished Richmond eight years since, and who I pledge myself, means to astonish it again; but for eight years he has not been anywhere in the neighborhood, and he is an impostor who takes his name. My letter may be of service to caution the public, and may enable me to discover if I can copyright a wizard as I can a book, both being bound in cloth gilt-edged having many pages and dependent on printer's ink. E. P. Hingston Agent for Prof. Anderson. Powhatan Hotel, Richmond, Va., Dec. 12th.
Sailing of the Arabia. Boston, Dec. 12. --The Arabia sailed at 11 o'clock with sixty passengers for Liverpool and 12 for Halifax. She took no specie.
Obituary. Boston, Dec. 12. --Timothy C. Rendall, Ex Alderman, and a well known leather merchant of this city, died this morning.
Commercial. Richmond Markets, Dec. 12. There is nothing of consequence to note in reference to quotations of breadstuffs and groceries, which remain but slightly altered. The Exchanges are growing worse instead of better, and our quotations to day are higher than they have yet been. The pressure continues here, but not so disastrously as it appears in other places. The tide of commerce is checked almost to stopping, so dull in trade and every branch of industry. A paralysis of so peculiar a nature has never been witnessed in this country, and that it must continue and grow worse until the present national troubles are settled, is very clear. The plot is thickening, but the denouement of the drama cannot be foreseen. Such, however, is its progress, and so starting is the present combination of circumstances, that the nation is hired with anxiety and apprehension as to what will be the next scene presented to our view. All hope for at least a peaceful conclusion of o
