Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.Affairs in Petersburg. Petersburg March 27, 1861. There seems to be a perfect dearth of news here at present. Nothing to disturb the quiet of private life, and nothing to excite the interest, or command the attention of the public mind. A casual glance into the Mayor's Court, for several days past, has discovered the Chief Magistrate of our 'burg complacently sitting in his "easy chair," awaiting, with commendable patience, the appearance of any case upon which his decision might be needed; but, with trifling exceptions, he has had nothing to occupy his time. Rev. Theodoric Pryor, to the great disappointment and sorrow of his large congregation and many friends, has been confined to his bed by severe illness, for several weeks.--He is, however, convalescent now, and will soon be able to resume his ministerial duties. The contract to furnish arms for the companies A and B, "Greys," has been awarded to R. A. Harrison, Esq

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.weather — Fruit — secession flag raised. Harrisonburg, Va., March 27, 1861. The winter secedes slowly — contesting every inch with young spring. Excepting high winds, the weather is really pleasant. The fruit has been preserved from frost, so far, by the severity of the past winter. Yet, if the present weather continues, the buds will soon shoot out. We anticipate a large yield of fruit the present season in the Valley. A few days since I examined the cherry buds, and find that the yield will be very fine, if not killed by future frosts. A secession flag, or, rather, the flag of the Confederate States of America, was raised last night upon the flag-staff of the Exchange Hotel, in this place. It waves to-day gaily in the stirring breeze, and attracts a great deal of attention. Some of the Submissionists seem to think it ought to come down; but I rather guess it won't.

Mr. Turner having by this time arrived, took the floor, and continued his speech in favor of an ad valorem tax on slaves.
