Henry county. --In yesterday's Dispatch Henry county was put down as one of those wanting in patriotism in not having proffered to the State men, money, and arms for the second war for independence now progressing. Since the appearance of that paragraph we have been informed that Henry county is actively preparing herself for the war — that Capt. P. R. Reamey, of the "Guards," and Capt. Samuel J. Mullins, of the "Horse pasture Volunteers," together with Lieut. Harriston, are now in the city to purchase necessary equipments for their respective companies. Henry county will be found "all right." We are glad to know such to be the fact.

Shocking outrage. --A correspondent, writing from Henry county, Va. April 17th, says : One of the most fiendish outrages was lately committed, a few miles from this place, that has ever been perpetrated in this section of country. Col. Peter Penn had as an overseer Mr. David Stuart. One of the negroes ran away, and had been absent a few days.--Mr. Stuart's daughter, a young lady, was at the barn, near the house, when she was seized by this negro and choked down, when he committed a hellish outrage on her, and then beat her until he left her dead upon the ground. The negro was arrested the same day and made the above statement, and also carried the same night to jail. There is strong probability that he will be taken from jail and burnt, as the people are greatly excited about it.

Another Veteran gone. --Matthew Seay, one of the few remaining veterans of the Revolution, departed this life a few days since, at his residence in Henry county, at the advanced age of one hundred and four years. It is said that the old warrior was so much exercised over the present war and his inability to engage in a second struggle for Freedom, that a general prostration of his system was the result. Quietly and calmly he breathed his last, with a blessing upon the Southern forces in the field. He has gone to reap the reward of his labors. Peace to the manes of the patriotic dead.--Dan. Reg.
