the Cadets who are retained at the Institute as a guard to the arms, &c., will be of essential service should they be called into the "tented field." An Artillery company was organized here to-day. Lieut. McCansland, one of the Assistant Professors at the Military Institute, was elected Captain, and Col. McLaughlin, J. B. Brockenbrough, Jr., and W. T. Poague, Lieutenants. Other companies are being formed: one at Natural Bridge; one in the Kerr's Creek region; one at Goshen Depot; one at Fairfield, and one at Brownsburg. The services of all these companies will be offered to our worthy Governor (of whom we are justly proud,) so soon as they can be uniformed and supplied with arms. The ladies of our town are working night and day on coats, pants, flannel shirts, and other articles necessary to the full equipment of these companies. Large and most liberal private subscriptions have been made by our citizens for providing all needed supplies. A "Home Guard," consisting of sixty of

Gone. --The Fifth Louisiana Regiment of volunteers, Col. Hunt, one thousand strong, left their camp at Fairfield yesterday, and started at 4 o'clock for Yorktown via railroad. Twenty cars sufficed to accommodate the men and their baggage.
Absent, but not forgotten. --The Mayor received yesterday a note from the Superintendent of city fortifications, near Fairfield, stating that one hundred and fifty of the free negroes sent thither to labor had deserted and failed to answer at roll-call. This conduct may necessitate the adoption of more stringent regulations in regard to them. One follow, Seaton Anderson by name, left the works two hours after being brought thither by Mr. Wicks, a policeman.
A call upon the ladies of Richmond. To the Editors of the Dispatch: --Will you have the kindness to permit me to say through the columns of your excellent paper, that the ladies of Richmond will confer a great favor on our sick by sending us a small quantity of refreshments suited to hospital use. Our present location — Grove Wharf — is not surrounded by those conveniences which contribute to wants of the sick. I am aware of the many demands made upon the ladies of Richmond, and take this opportunity to acknowledge the numerous acts of kindness to our sick while we were encamped at Fairfield. Any packages sent to this point call the care of Dr. Robert R. Rend, Captain Regiment Louisiana Volunteers. Rensar H. Read Chaplain of the 5th Reg't La. Vol. Grove Wharf, Aug, 15th, 1861
not show more perseverance man the rest of the party. Ninette beat him, also, last year, at mile heats. Saturday's race. Leisure belongs to Mr. Fondren, and will probably represent his stable in the race.--She is a fine large, four year-old, with some remarkably good points — her arm, for instance. She is by Red Eye, out of a Margrave. Our redders, however, have seen her pedigree and performances too often for them to need repetition. She ran close up in the two-mile match at Fairfield, in which Exchequer beat her in 3142--342½. If not this male, Mr. Fondren will probably enter Red Eagle, a superb looking bay, full brother to Leisure, and one, we understand, that has proved a remarkably fast horse. It his action corresponds to his appearance, it must be a treat to see him move. Buck-Eye is, we hear, quite a noted Virginia horse; but we do not know his pedigree or to whom he belongs. He is counted a good one, at any rate. Exchequer is full brother to Planet a
Runaway in the army. --My man George ran away the 1st day of February, and probably joined our army, as it passed Gordonsville from Manassas to Richmond. He was seen with an artillery company, having pack mules with it, passing from Fairfield into Richmond in May, and is doubtless passing as a free man, and may have changed to other kind of army service, or may be in the city, and most likely as cook or waiter. He is 23 to 25 years old, black, neat, round features, weighs about 160 pounds, 5 feet 8 to 10 inches high, likely, and has a hoarse, confused manner of speech, and has probably changed his name. I will give $100 for his delivery in jail, so that I get him again. S. W. Ficklin. jy 30--6t Charlottesville, Va.
