Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.Nominations in Buckingham. Buckingham Co., Va., January 15, 1861. Our County Court came off yesterday.--Early in the morning Col. Edmund W. Hubbard was announced as a county candidate for the State Convention, to be held on the 13th of February. It is understood that Col. Hubbard is for immediate action on the part of Virginia. Later in the day, Mr. Chas. L. Christian was also announced as a county candidate for the some Convention. It is understood that Mr. Christian is in favor of further below, still hoping (against all hope) that some concessions will be made on the side of the North. There is but (little doubt about public sentiment in our county on the subject. As far as I have been able to ascertain, there will be a large majority in favor of immediate State action, having given up all hope of any adjustment in the Union. Indeed, we no longer have a Union, and the people are rapidly taking their position in favor of resumi

Snowballing in Paris. --Snowballing in the Tuileries was carried on to such an extent on Christmas day that it became necessary to send for troops to protect the public. A parcel of young scamps systematically assailed every well dressed person, particularly ladies who wore bonnets worth spoiling. One young man, supposed to be an Englishman, used his cane in self-defence, and a regular row was the consequence. Many bear-skin caps belonging to grenadier guards who came to restore order, were seen rolling about in the snow. The troops were unarmed and could do little, but ultimately a body of sergeants deville cleared the gardens and arrested several of the snowballers.

Paris, Wednesday.--In the Bank of France a deficit of nearly 2,000,000 francs is anticipated. The affairs of the Bank are discouraging. The American panic has affected France equally with England.

Commercial.[from the London Times' City Article.] Monday Evening, Jan. 7.--The Bank of England, this morning, shortly after the commencement of business, advanced their rate of discount from 6 per cent., at which it was fixed on the 31st ult., to 7 per cent., This is higher than any point attained since the panic of 1857. The step came unexpectedly, and a few minutes previously to its notification, money was obtainable in the discount market at a fraction below the Bank terms them current. The reasons assigned for it, however or, are sufficiently important. Not only did the Asia take out a further sum of £200,000, for New York on Saturday; but the Tetonia, from Southampton this morning, has carried £ 70,000, and it may, therefore, be inferred that the City of Washington.

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.the State of feeling in Arkansas--position of the South, &c. Osceola, Arkansas Jan. 13 Seeing in your columns no communication From our State, and thinking that anything from any place relative to the subject which is now rending asunder the Union of the States would not be unacceptable to you or your reader, I have end favored to give you a perfect account of the feeling in Arkansas upon the great questions of the day. The feeling in this county, (Miss.,) one of the most conservative in the State, If not now for immediate secession, is yet for determined resistance to the oppressions of the now dominant party of the North. While, probably, those in favor of co-operation have a majority in the county, there is a band to which every day brings new recruits who are in favor of immediate secession. We have no Submissionists amongst us; or, if we have, they are ashamed to show themselves in the light of the sun. This being the
a common by-way to all the people of the State, shall continue to be such." These repeated and emphatic prohibitions have estopped the passage of any title by the register for any such lands in the East since 1780, and in the West since 1802, which reunited migranted by the Colonial Government. The Auditor of Public Accounts alludes to the subject in his recent communication to the General Assembly, and we insert his concluding remarks, as they possess local interest. He says: "In 1675 Governor Berkeley granted William Byrd 7,351 acres of land on the north side of the James River, beginning at the mouth of Shockoe Creek, and running up said river; and in 1687 William Byrd obtained a grant of 956 acres on the north side of said river, beginning at the mouth of Shockoe Creek, and running down said river. --Neither grant appears to include either the banks or beds of the said James River or Shockoe Creek, nor the islands in James River opposite and near the city of Richmond.
