Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.Old Louisa in the field. Louisa C. H., Va., April 19, 1861. Our little village was thrown into a great state of excitement on Wednesday last, by the reception of a dispatch commanding our volunteer company — the "Louisa Blues"--to prepare for an extra train that evening, to take them to Harper's Ferry. The dispatch took all by surprise, as we had no intimation of it before, but there was not a moment's hesitation or delay. Capt. Murray, and several members of his company, were just about to take the cars for Richmond to offer the services of the company to the Governor, when the summons came. A meeting was immediately called, scouts were sent to the country to inform the members of the company of it, and, although the notice was so short, and the men scattered over an area of 12 or 15 miles, they responded nobly to the call, and mustered in full force at the appointed hour. Rev. Mr. Waggoner, of the Methodist Church, made them
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.War spirit in Charlottesville. Charlottesville, Va., April 19, 1861. The war spirit is fully manifest by all persons here. Two companies in town, and two from the University, left here on Wednesday night for Harper's Ferry. There was a firm determination with them all to fight and conquer. While waiting for the train, the University soldiers stood for three hours in unbroken ranks, every one panting to meet the foe. Speeches were delivered to perhaps fifteen hundred persons assembled at the depot, by Col. R. R. Prentis, and Prof. Holmes, of the University, Hon. S. F. Leake, of Charlottesville, and Mr. Berry, of Alexandria. --When Mr. Leake said,"Fellow-citizens of the Confederate States of the South, " a shout went up such as never before was heard in this vicinity. Last night a Home Guard was formed in town, of sixty persons over 45 years of age--Col. Prentis elected Captain, A. P. Abell, Lieutenant. A fine military corps was

Dickinson, and Otery F., his wife, to the subscriber, I shall, at the request of-- & Hutcheson, the beneficiaries in said, deed, on Friday, the 19th of April, 1861, (if fair; if not, the first fair day thereafter, Sundays excepted,) proceed to sell at auction, for Cash, to the highest bidder, at Green Bay, in the upper end of Hanover, three miles from Beaver Dam Depot, on the Virginia Central Railroad, and half a mile from Green Bay Crossing, the following property, or so much thereof as may be necessary to pay the debt, $2.084.80, secured by said deed of trust, with interest thereon from the 24th October, 1860, and all costs of preparing and enforcing said deed of trust, selling the Negroes first.

hunder tones, from cannon's mouth, You fear nor heed no Northern foe. And, when the foeman's booming bomb Shall, whizzing, whirl athwart the sky-- (Tho' with each shot grim death may come)-- The Fayette —— shall it basely fly? No! no! not here the recreant one, Would thus disgrace Lafayette's name-- The hero-friend of Washington Shall ne'er by these be brought to shame; For in each breast there burns a fire Enkindled by Virginia's breath; And every son has learned from sire, "Give liberty, or give me death!" And should we fall upon the field, Oh, tell me not we die in vain: The one who falls with Freedom's shield Is not among the nameless slain; For poet — sons and daughters fair-- Of this, our own free Southern land, Will sing of us in plaintive air, And name us in the hero-band. So, then, to arms! sons of the South, And let the tyrant, Lincoln, know, In thunder tones, from cannon's mouth, You fear nor heed no Northern foe. Richmond, Va., April 19, 1861.
