Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.military spirit Increasing — the crops, &c. Amsterdam, June 5, 1861. I am glad to inform you that the military spirit of this county is on the increase, and still another company is nearly completed in this neighborhood. A very intelligent gentleman from Georgia informs me that he had lately an interview with Gov. Brown, who informed him that in all, nearly 100,000 men in that State had offered their services. The crops continued promising. The wheat harvest, now nearly done, was abundant, and the grain of fine quality. I have just seen a splendid body of cavalry in Lynchburg, under the command of Colonel Radford. They are receiving constant accessions, and will prove a formidable foe to the invader. Philo.
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.an efficient Company — arrest of a Yankee. Orange Court-House, June 6, 1861. Capt. Browning's company of cavalry, the Orange Rangers, is now encamped here, ready to be mustered into service. It would be difficult to find a body of men of more physical power and endurance — of more will, determination and energy. They will take the field in a few days, and whatever men can do or suffer they will be found fully equal to. A suspicious character named Patrick Haley, was yesterday committed to our jail on failure to give bond and security for his good behavior, in the penalty of $500. He hails from Vermont. J.
Accidental Sheeting. --An accident occurred yesterday about 4 o'clock at the pistol gallery, corner of 14th and Main streets, by which Mr. James L. Smither, dry goods merchant of this city, was dangerously wounded by a ball discharged from a Colt's pistol in the bands of Mr. Jos. Brummel. Messrs. B. and S. were at the gallery trying their own pistols; S. was standing on one side, and B. having just discharged one barrel of his pistol, was in the act of replacing it in his pocket, when one of the barrels was by some means discharged, the ball striking S. in the abdomen, passing across and lodging in the muscular part. Dr. Burton, who was in attendance, probed the wound and gives the opinion that the ball did not enter the cavity of the stomach, which leaves considerable room to hope that S. will get over the wound. Sundry gentlemen were standing in a group with Mr. S. when the ball struck him.
