Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.the true spirit. Amelia Co., Va., April 21, 1861. On Saturday, April the 20th, the students of the Amelia Academy, after a spirited address from the Principal, Wm. H. Harrison, with great joy flung proudly to the breeze, from the top of a staff 60 feet high, the flag of the Confederate States, organized themselves as a Home Guard, and made arrangements to elect officers and procure arms, Amelia is fully aroused. The ladies, God bless them ! show the spirit of 76. One of the first in the county, in fortune, family, and every grace and quality that can adorn her sex, said to me yesterday, with great feeling, that if she had ten sons she would gladly send them to the war. With such a spirit animating men, women and boys, and God and truth on our side, we may surely defy Lincoln and his myrmidons Wigwam.
