x county. Va., County-Court, on Monday last, decided to appropriate, from the "Glebe Fund," the sum of $5,000, to be expended in putting the county in a state of defence. The sum is to be borrowed of the Trustees of the Poor, who hold the Bank stock of the Glebe Fund. It will be appropriated as follows: To the Essex Light Dragoons, $1,800; to the Essex Sharp Shooters, $500; the balance to the militia, and for the purchase of ammunition. It is thought that a large amount, sufficient to thoroughly equip 500 men, will be raised by private subscription. Contributions to secession. The Baton Rouge (La.) Advocate, of the 17th Inst., is requested by Col. J. L. Rice, of Illinois, to tender to Gov.

Gentlemen of Columbia, S. C., has sent Gov. Pickens $500 to be used for the State.

Excitement in Louisiana. --Says the Baton Rouge (La.) Gazette, of the 2d instant; "We are assured, on good authority, that a gang of runaway negroes, about fourteen in number, are depredating almost with impunity on the property of citizens living on the eastern side of the Comite river, in this parish. They have been frequently seen in squads; some of them armed with shot guns; and in one instance a gun was put to the head of a white man by one of four negroes who emerged from the bushes just as the former was in the act of securing one of their comrades. Two white men are with these negroes, both armed with double-barrelled guns, and doubtless are the instigators of their thieving and insolence.--An expedition is on foot to capture the whole party. If it succeeds, the white villains will get their reward. Of course, much excitement and apprehension exist in the neighborhood."
Affairs at St. Louis. The collisions at St. Louis between the Federal and State troops, render it important to know the condition of affairs there which led to the outbreak. It appears that the State troops were organized by authority of the Governor; were encamped about two miles from St. Louis, and a few days ago had received about one thousand muskets, and several pieces of artillery, from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Gen. Frost had the command. The Federal troops consisted of citizens who had volunteered their services to the Government, and were under the command of Capt. Lyons. For several days past there have been symptoms of trouble between the two opposing forces, and the collision was not unexpected. The St. Louis Democrat (Republican) of Friday morning, has the following in relation to the Federal troops: Yesterday we stated that two regiments, comprising some seventeen hundred men, enrolled as Home Guards, had been sworn into the service of the United States, and

Baton Rouge, La., Dec. 13.--The Senate has passed the Convention bill.

Senator Toombs received a dispatch to-day, saying that the forts in Georgia were seized by order of Gov. Brown. Private advices say that if any attempt be made to reinforce either the arsenal at Augusta, Ga., or to remove the arms, they will be at once seized. The South Carolina Commissioners considered the abrupt termination by the
