Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.Affairs in Lynchburg. Lynchburg, Lynchburg, Feb. 21, For several weeks past it has been generally known that some few cases of small-pox existed in this city, which was the cause of some slight anxiety, with most of our citizens. A few days ago some new cases came to light, which, together with exaggerated reports and ill-advised publications, has caused great alarm, and I may almost say consternation, throughout the city, producing great depression in trade. On Tuesday, the matter was taken up by the City Council, and the city districted and vaccine agents appointed for each district, who were instructed to visit and vaccinate every family in the city, which duty was performed yesterday. From reliable authority I learn that at present there are 12 cases of small-pox and varioloid in the city, nine of which are in the hospital and three at their dwellings under strict quarantine. Our citizens generally are becoming heartily sic

Congressional. Washington, Feb. 21. --Senate--Mr. Bragg presented his credentials, as successor of Senator Clingman, from the State of North Carolina for the next term. Mr. Hale's resolution for the discontinuance of the postal service in the seceded States was taken up. Mr. Hunter said if these States were within the Union the Government had no power to deprive them of the right, under the Constitution, of mail facilities. He disliked the word insurrection — it looked to coercion, and was the first step to war and all its horrors. If a reconstruction could not be made, the best step was to have a peaceable separation. If that was understood to-day, commerce and trade would resume its regular channels, and the country would again be prosperous. Mr. Doolittle said this was not a coercive measure, but was one of peace. Mr. Hunter was glad to learn that the Senator from Wisconsin did not vote for this bill as a coercive measure. He hoped no party would co
