Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.Montgomery county. Christiansburg, Va., May 29, 1861. Last evening our town had the pleasure of showing the hospitality of its good people to Capt. Eggleston's company from New River, White Sulphur, Giles county, 83 strong, and as good material as one would wish to look at for soldiers. They go to Lynchburg to-day Capt. Lybrock's company from the "State of Patrick," 88 strong, passes through our town. In both these companies Old Abe's hirelings will find some Mountain Sharp-shooters, who know how to use the rifle.
