New type. --The Dispatch is renewing itself with a new suit of types; and a noticeable fact in regard to them is that they were manufactured in London. We believe they are the first English type brought to this city from London since 1826, when the late Mr. Ritchie, of the Enquirer, imported a font for his paper. Since then up to the war the Yankees supplied the South with types. We are gratified at being able to lead off with the English manufacture now, and will be yet more pleased, after the war, to dress our paper up in types made here in Richmond. Indeed, a foundry was in existence here when the war began, and our paper was then printed on Richmond-made type; but the founder was a Yankee, and went off through the lines under the promise to return and bring some articles much needed by publishers and the Government, but he never came back.
