Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.enthusiastic demonstration in Smythe county. Marion, Smythe County, Va.,April 15th, 1861. Last Saturday was a gala day in our village. Our new military company, the "Smythe Blues," numbering 60, rank and file, paraded in the morning, and certainly exhibited a degree of proficiency in the drill which was remarkable, considering the short time which has transpired since the organization of the company. At 2 o'clock P. M., the members of the company, desiring to give a public manifestation of their way of thinking, unfurled to the breeze the flag of the Southern Confederacy on a pole ninety feet high, fired a salute of forty guns, and gave three cheers for Jeff. Davis and the Southern Confederacy. Loud calls were then made on Capt. A. G. Pendleton, Jr., of the Blues, for a speech, who responded gracefully, in his usual felicitous and eloquent manner.

lance Committees. --The Abingdon Virginian, of Friday last, has the following: We understand that the man Faris, whom the citizens of Marion, in the adjoining county of Smythe, tarred and feathered a month or two ago, for his Abolition sentiments, raised a Lincoln flag at his residence a few miles from Marion on Tuesday last. It was determined, we learn, to take down the flag on Wednesday, and hang Faris to the pole, if he could be caught. It will be remembered that a committee was appointed some weeks ago by the people of Marion, to convey him to Ohio. They performed the duty, and on parting with him gave him fifty cents each, but on returning home found that he had arrived back a day ahead of them. A brother of said Faris is a Magistrate of Smythe county. On Tuesday last, all the Magistrates being summoned as is customary at the April Court, they refused to sit with Faris, and he was compelled to leave the Bench. He entertains like sentiments with his brother.
A stay law. --The Justices of Smyth county were convened in extraordinary session last week, for the purpose of providing means of defence and equipping the troops. After getting through with this business, a cry was raised, "Pass a stay law!" The Magistrates thereupon unanimously enacted "that no more debts should be collected in Smyth before the first of January, 1862." So at least we are informed by a gentleman from the county.--Abingdon Dem.
