Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.sad accident--one man killed and two seriously wounded. Lexington, Va., July 18, 1861. I write to give you a reliable account of a most unfortunate and distressing disaster which occurred in this town on last night, which resulted in the instant death of one of our most brightly esteemed and respected citizens, Col. Cameron, the probable death of a young man fifteen or sixteen years of age, son of Dr. McClung of this place, and the wounding of a Third Adjutant, Smith, a graduate of the V. M. Institute at the last session. The circumstances are briefly as follows: The stage from Staunton reached here about 11 o'clock, P. M., and quite a large crowd had collected in front of the "Lexington House," eager to hear the latest news from the seat of war. Among the passengers was a young man from Baltimore by the name of Sturman, who came up from Winchester with Colonel Wm. F. Wilson, for the purpose of recruiting a guerilla company in this and

I, John Letcher, Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, do by virtue of authority vested in the Executive, hereby prohibit the bills or notes of either of said Banks, except those of the Branch of the North-Western Bank at Jeffersonville in Tazewell County, from being received in payment of any money due to the State of Virginia. The collecting officers throughout the Commonwealth are required to take notice of this prohibition. Given under my hand as Governor, and under the seal of the Commonwealth, at Richmond, State of Virginia this 18th day of July, 1861, and in the eighty sixth year of the Commonwealth John Letcher. By order of the Governor: George W. Munford, jy 20--d&cw6t Sec'y of the Commonwealth.
[for the Richmond Dispatch.]Old Kentucky. Bristol, July 18, 1861. Mr. Dispatch:--I was to-day looking over the history of Kentucky, and read with feelings of great emotion the defence of Boonsborough by Daniel Boone and his brave followers, August, 1778. I must quote one page of it to refresh your memory also, and should the eye of any Kentuckian rest on this page, let him pause and remember that now a moment has arrived in his history as momentous as the one now alluded to: "It was on the 8th of August, that, with British and French flags flying,* the dusky army gathered around the little fortress of logs, defended by its inconsiderable garrison. Captain Duquesne, on behalf of his Majesty King George III, summoned Captain Boone to surrender.--It was as Daniel had acknowledged in his journal, a critical period for him and his friends. Should they yield, what mercy could they look for; should they refuse to yield, what hope of successful resistance; besides their cattle were
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.Affairs in King George. Port Conway, Va., July 18, 1861. Notwithstanding the call was anticipated, our militia was considerably "flurried" upon the appearance of Gov. Letcher's late proclamation. While there is no lack of proper zeal for the cause, nor want of nerve to meet the conflict in which they have been called upon to engage, yet there are many who find themselves surrounded by such circumstances as render it next to impossible for them to leave their homes. Great indeed will be the sacrifice in many individual cases, but all personal interests and considerations must now be made to yield to the higher service we owe to our country. The various militia companies of the county will rendezvous at our Court-House on Monday next, where they will remain to await further orders. At Mathias' Point all has been quiet for the past ten or twelve days. There have been some cases of sickness among the soldiers there, but none have a
