Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.prompt action in the Southwest--eloquentspeeches — patriotism of the women — organization of troops, &c., &c. Abingdon, Va., April 23, 1861. In a letter to you a few days since, I stated that the people of old Washington county were aroused — enraged against the powers that be at the Federal city. A salute was fired here when the news was received of the surrender of Fort Sumter, and also when the fact was made known that the Convention had passed an Ordinance of Secession. A worthy citizen, Mr. James Warren, was severely injured by an accidental going-off of the cannon on that day. Yesterday (Monday) was a great day in Abingdon. At least two thousand people had gathered in from all parts of the county — from the valleys and the mountains, from the creeks and the rivers. About 11 o'clock A. M., two regiments, besides the old citizens, and members of another regiment, under command of the Colonels, repaired to an open field fo

Dr. White remarked that he had been administering blue pills to the people here — now he wanted to give doses of blue pills of a different kind to Abe Lincoln and his Black Republican myrmidons. Col.

The Temperance Hall and the building for Martha Washington College have been converted into barracks. Five companies of volunteers have been raised in this county: the Washington Mounted Riflemen, under command of Capt. W. E. Jones; the Mountain Boys, under command of Capt. Wm.

t 11 o'clock A. M., two regiments, besides the old citizens, and members of another regiment, under command of the Colonels, repaired to an open field for the purpose of enlisting volunteers. A stirring and eloquent speech was delivered by Joseph T. Campbell, Esq. He told the people that he had been one of the men who had believed that the old Union could be reconstructed — that sufficient guarantees could be obtained from the North to satisfy the South. But in all this he had been mistaken; thed to the different flags which had been prepared. The people then returned to town. Notice was given that speeches would be delivered in the Court-House. A general rush was made to hear them. Messrs. Walter Preston, Jas. W. Humes, Joseph T. Campbell, Jonathan Richmond, Isaac B. Dunn, Col. E. S. Martin, Gov. McMullin, Dr. Jas. L. White and Wm.
