we have some 90 or 100 desperadoes turned loose in our county. At this time why not send the convicts on York River to aid in putting up batteries? They would be under a strong guard, and of service to the State. I have just learned that one convict and one slave were brought in and lodged in jail last night. To morrow the Botetourt Dragoons, Capt. Pitzer, leave for Lynchburg. Already Botetourt has nobly done her duty, having now five companies in service. Our old correspondent "Dyke" (who has turned soldier) writes a gratifying account of the war spirit in New Kent county. He says: New Kent has responded nobly to the call for troops. Two companies have already been mustered into service, the New Kent Rifles, under command of Capt. James Richardson, and the Pamunkey Guards, (artillery,) commanded by Capt. Robert T. Ellett. The former will compare with any similar corps of the State, both as regards fine looking men, and their proficiency in the manual exercise.
