Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.military activity — a Vivandiere — further particulars of the late accident. Lynchburg, Va., June 6, 1861. Our city presented unusual activity yesterday. Two trains arrived early in the morning, bringing troops from the States of Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee, most of whom were armed and well equipped. A number of companies who have been on duty at Pensacola also arrived. At Chattanooga there are many more encamped, awaiting transportation. In the German Fusileers, from Mobile, I noticed a lady in bloomer costume, trimmed in same style as the rest of the soldiers. She is the wife of the Orderly Sergeant of the company, and wore a sword and pistol, and is said to be as well drilled as any man in the company, and handles the musket with perfect ease, and in addition to these accomplishments, so necessary for the soldier, she is a female physician, and in this capacity she will doubtless render efficient aid to the

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.the engagement at Pig Point. Norfolk, June 7 1861. The engagement on Wednesday at Pig Point, between the Harriet Lane and our battery, lasted about one hour, during which time there were about fifty-five shot fired between the parties. Four of our shot pierced the enemy's ship, but what damage was done we could not learn. She, however, soon found it was too hot a place for her, and turned her back upon our battery. Two of the shot from the steamer were well directed at us, as one struck the muzzle of one of our guns, breaking a piece out of it, and another passed through one of the tents; but there was "no body hurt." We looked for and hoped she would pay us another visit to-day, but she has not yet arrived. The Salem Flying Artillery are quartered on Craney Island, and are the happiest boys I have met with. I spent one night with them, partaking of their kind hospitality. They are anxious that Miss "Harriet Lane" should pay t

thirty-twos, and heavy place. Her crew consists of about 100 men and officers. She is destined for the blockade fleet. Two more of the New York volunteer regiments, the 3d, Col. Townsend, and the 4th, (First Scott Life Guard,) Col. Taylor, sailed on Monday for Fortress Monroe. The steam frigate Niagara arrived at the mouth of the Mississippi river on the 28th ult., and it was supposed was to assist in the blockade of the port of New Orleans. During the month of May three hundred and seventy-five men were enlisted for the naval service in New Bedford. It is stated that the Federal troops have raised the National flag over ex-President Tyler's summer residence, "Marguerite Villa." Hampton, Va. Instead of giving $35,000 to the Michigan troops, it turns out that General Cass has only loaned the State $3,000, for which he receives legal interest. It is understood that the Cabinet has decided on raising a new levy of 75,000 troops for three years service.

C. Mansoul, 1st Lieutenant. C. Lettellier, 2d Lieutenant. A. Gaillard, 3d Lieutenant. F. De Gournay, Captain Co. "E." S. Pierson, 1st Lieutenant. J. Kean, 2d Lieutenant. A. Robira, 3d Lieutenant. A. Copens, Captain Co. "F." O. Lauve, 1st Lieutenant. W. F. Foxter, 2d Lieutenant. A. Holfin, 3d Lieutenant. The volunteers were originally called for by its Lieut. Colonel, on the 17th of March last, and such was the alacrity with which the response was met, that on the 8th of April four hundred men started for Pensacola, where they were subsequently joined by two more companies, making the battalion complete. They have there been engaged in throwing up fortifications, and are said to have been the favorite soldiers of Gen. Bragg. If anybody wishes to see genuine French Zouaves, just as they looked in the Crimea, scrutinize these brave fellows. They are generally small, but wiry, muscular, active as cats, and brown as a side of sole leather. Twenty or thirty are

for the United States Government ships — about 30 in all. A small schooner belonging to Messrs. Wilson, of Norfolk, with a cargo of railroad iron. consigned to the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company, had been wrecked off the coast The Captain of the schooner called on Commodore Pendergast and asked permission to endeavor to save a portion of his cargo, but was ordered to return and await orders from him in the matter. [correspondence of the Associated Press] Fortress Monroe, May 3, 5 P. M -- Only some fifty men of the Naval Brigade returned to New York in the Coatzacoalcas to-day. The others will remain for one week as citizens, laboring for their rations, and not as a military organization. Colonel Bartlett, who is much better, goes to Washington to-night with several of his officers. This is the best General Butler can do for them. It is believed that the brigade was ordered back to New York, partly on account of a misunderstanding between the President a

French interests in South America. --The Paris Sickle, of the 9th of May, says: M. Laferriere, delegate of the Frenchmen who for fifteen years have been demanding indemnities from the Government of Uruguay, has sent us a report on the matter, which states that, though by the intervention of the Cabinets of Paris and London indemnities were promised both to the French and English sufferers, the Government of Montevideo has on different pretexts not paid them. Must France send a naval division to support demands of which the justice has been recognized?

The Machiavellian policy of Great Britain towards the United States.[from the New York Herald, June 2.] The details of the debate in the House of Lords, on the 16th ultimo as received by the America's mails, and published yesterday, gives us particulars, respecting the language used on that occasion, of the gravest importance, and of a far more aggressive nature towards the United States than had been previously reported by telegraph. Our correspondence by the America, published this morning, still further developed the offensive policy of the English Government. The Lord Chancellor, who is the authoritative exponent of the Palmerston Ministry in the Upper House, had not only repudiated the maritime code adopted by the Treaty of Paris, but had gone so far as to pronounce that the United States has no right to punish British privateers in Jefferson Davis' service as pirates! He added that the war of the Confederated States against the North was a just one, and their rights

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.crops in Roanoke. Bonsack's, Va., June 3. The prospect of an abundant wheat crop in Roanoke, so far as I have been, is most flattering. Corn and oats are backward. The grass crop is very abundant. We are plentifully supplied with everything except that little convenience called "money." The seasons are favorable, and all nature seems to smile cheerfully, except God's noblest workmanship, who seems to feel sensibly the sombre gloom that pervades the soul, owing to our unfortunate political troubles.

Affairs at Williamsport — the fight for the Ferry boat. A correspondent of the Baltimore American, writing from Williamsport, Md., June 3, gives the following details of the collision between the Virginians and Marylanders on Saturday and Sunday. The correspondence was doubtless written with an eye to giving an advantage to the Federal side: Camp Allen was broken up on Friday last, and gone, we don't know where. Two companies were left to guard Lemon's Ferry.--On Friday night the commander of the remaining companies evidently took fright, for he formed his soldiers at 12 o'clock at night, took his wife and child from their beds, and departed, as men do when in haste and fear, towards Martinsburg. On Saturday morning a company of cavalry, which were better adapted to running, and a company of riflemen, were sent in their place, with orders to sink the ferry boat. The cavalry left about nine o'clock, and the rifle company (Capt. Patrick's) proceeded to sink the boat.
