Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.the crops in Florida--the "Fool Catchers." Quincy, Fla. May 23, 1861. Prospects for crops with us to this date are very promising. this section has planted a much larger crop of corn and small grain this year than usual, and we are likewise planting much more than the usual crop of sugar cane, sweet and Irish potatoes, ground peas, pumpkins, kirshaw, squashes, melons, cornfield peas, turnips, and nearly all the eatables in creation. The orange crop, as well as the lemon, lime, &c. where grown, are said to be promising; the peach prospect abundant; sufficient plums and strawberries now ripe to feed whole regiments; whortleberries will soon be of the red purple and black tinge. The forest promises an abundant mast crop — oak, beach, pine, &c.; and the woods abound in game, such as deer, bear, turkey, &c. Lincoln and his horde of "freedom shriekers" talk about subjugating or exterminating the white race of the South! They must be fool
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.affairs in Greenbrier. Dry Creek Hotel, May 23, 1861. To-day has been quite an exciting one here. The vote on the Ordinance of Secession drew the voters of the precinct of this place and the White Sulphur Springs, where the vote was taken. The friends of the Ordinance were irritated by the presence of some twenty or thirty men who were known to be opposed to it, and who, it was thought, would cast their votes against it. Their party was small indeed, but Greenbrier men thought there ought to be no Union men in a county depending so much on Southern generosity and affluence for prosperity. The excitement and interest of the day were enhanced by the arrival of the Greenbrier Cavalry, Capt. Moorman. A beautiful flag, made by Miss Mary Eagle, was presented to the Company on behalf of herself and the ladies of Dry Creek, by Dr. Lake, whose appropriate and stirring address was responded to in an eloquent and happy manner by the C
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.military spirit in Fayette — appropriation. Hawks'nest, Fayette Co., Va., May 24, 1861. Not having seen anything in your paper of what is transpiring in Fayette, I take the liberty to inform you how matters are progressing here. Fayette has raised three volunteer companies for the defence of Virginia against the common enemy, and we have two other companies that are more than half made up, and, I think that in a few days they will be completed. On last Monday our Court made an appropriation of $5,000, for fitting out the volunteers, and to aid their families during their absence.

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.the Government loan — movements of President Davis--the crops, &c. Montgomery, Ala., May 26th, 1861. I reached here a few days ago, and am gratified to find that the authorities are fully alive to the great crisis in our affairs and prepared to exhaust all the resources of the country in the maintenance of our cause.--Congress has authorized a war loan of $50,000,000, and empowered the President at his discretion to increase the army of volunteers to 150,000 men. The seat of Government is to be changed for the time being to Richmond, where the archives of the Government and the Secretaries of State will be duly installed by the 1st of June. President Davis will no doubt be in Virginia before you get this to take the command in the field of all the troops concentrated there for our defence. He will be worth fifty thousand men to our cause, and will soon teach Lincoln's myrmadons that our country is never to be subdued while t

Many Ladies. May 27, 1861.
