[Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Cumberland Gap, Nov. 23, 1861. As the soldier bends his steps to the top of one of the lofty peaks of the Cumber land Ridge, overlooking the once proud and gallant State of Kentucky, he is both to believe that the home of Henry Clay is in chains, and writhing under the lash of thhospitable graves, should they attempt to force their passage through this Gap.

The "Haleysburg ladies' Aid Society." Williesburg, Charlotte co., Va., November 27, 1861. Editors Dispatch:--Through your paper, as a medium, I beg permission to state, that I was in attendance, a few days since, at a regular meeting of the "Haleysburg Ladies Aid Society," and can say, without fear of contradiction, that the kind mothers and fair damsels of "Old Lunenburg" are not wanting in patriotism; but, knowing their duty, go cheerfully and bravely on its performance.
