From Norfolk.the Hampton affair — Lincoln's troops in possession — false Alarms, &c.[special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Norfolk, Va., May 29th, 1861. That a landing by the Federal forces has been made at Newport News, I think is beyond question From Sunday until yesterday, it is thought about three thousand were put ashore at this point, where they are engaged in erecting an effective battery. Five or six ships have been seen frequently in that direction, and it is surmised that this, after all, must have been the main object of their visit. On Sunday afternoon, I learn, they visited the house of a farmer in the neighborhood, and demanded of him all the negroes he had, saying that they were wanted to work, and that when they were done with them they would be returned; and, no doubt these negroes are made to work hard day and night for these villains, which may account for the rapid progress of their battery. Certainly this is an unwarrantable invasion of our soi

A Northern Secessionist --A Northern gentleman, whilom a resident in Cincinnati, came here a year and a half ago to hang bells. When Lincoln was elected, the bell-hanger was among the first to sound the tocsin of alarm. From him Memphians learned that except himself every Northerner was "a black-hearted scoundrel." His own father he stigmatized as the Abolition offspring of an animal classified as canine by Buffon and other writers on the animated creation. The end of the gentleman proves his last assertion true; for he trotted out of Memphis some weeks since, shook the dust off his tail, and smelt his way to Philadelphia, remarking as he went, that he would "rather blacken boots in the North than hang bells in the South." This violent change of sentiment is due to the fact that he owed some rent for his kennel, and various other little bills. While among us it wagged its tail, as its father did before it, in answer to the name of "Bill Kinnan." Memphis (Tenn.) Argus.
Arrested --We have just heard says the Raleigh (N. C.) Standard, of the 1st inst., that a man named Bushrod Vick, a native of Nash county in this State, who arrived here Tuesday professedly with dispatches from Gov. Letcher to Gov. Ellis, was put under arrest on Thursday on suspicion that he was one of Lincoln's spies. It is rumored that Gov. Ellis telegraphed Gov. Letcher, and ascertained that the dispatches were spurious.

The Herald on John Bull. The New York Herald is again in a great rage with John It insists that the Lincoln Administration shall bring him up to the mark at once. It says: "Mr. Lincoln should not permit, for an instant, the recognition of the Confederate States as "belligerents," in the sense in which the word was used by Lord John Russell in the House of Commons. The whole country will sustain him in requiring from Great Britain the explicit acknowledgment of our right to put doMr. Lincoln should not permit, for an instant, the recognition of the Confederate States as "belligerents," in the sense in which the word was used by Lord John Russell in the House of Commons. The whole country will sustain him in requiring from Great Britain the explicit acknowledgment of our right to put down rebellion in America, just as we should leave unquestioned her competency to put down insurrection in Wales or Ireland; and any infringement of the blockade that has been instituted of Southern ports by armed British vessels, should be at once regarded as a casus belli." We venture to say that if a single British gunboat, the Styx for example, should show its face with hostile intent in New York harbor, the whole population would evacuate the island, led on by the bold chieftain who pe

[for the Richmond Dispatch.]a call upon Lincoln. A thrill of rapturous admiration ran through my whole frame when it was announced that President Davis had arrived in Richmond and signified his intention to lead our armies himself to battle. O, men of the North, where is your chieftain? He who with such daring effrontery issued his proclamation of war — that bloody edict at which Heaven and earth stand aghast — in itself as illegal as barbarous, without the sanction of Congress, the
oleon basking in the quiet shades of Malmalson, while all France was empurpled with the gore of the brave and the true.
O, we reverence the man, conquered hero though he be, whose identity is lost when his country's honor is imperilled.
Can Abram Lincoln be so blind as not to know that there are around him reflective men and women who will detect his cowardice, if they have not already discovered his perfidy?
Mothers, will you longer allow him to urge on your almost idolized sons — the light<

Invasion of Ironton, Mo.--Lincoln's troops Sheet at and take citizens prisoners. The Memphis (Tenn.) Bulletin is permitted to publish the following extract of a letter to a gentleman in that place, dated Ironton, Mo., May 23. It is probable that the invasion of Ironton and the atrocities herein detailed gave rise to the reports about Jim Lane being between Pocahontas and Jacksonport, Mo.: Yesterday--Wednesday, the 22d--was a day never to be forgotten by us in Arcadia Valley. I pray that I may never see such another day of horror. Lincoln has guerilla soldiers, composed of the lowest class of Dutch, which he has turned loose on the border States, to make war on all the Secessionists — to take freemen as prisoners, and court-martial them for treason if they fail to take the oath of allegiance to the Federal Government. Early yesterday morning a gentleman came galloping up to our house, warning us to hide, that the Lincoln soldiers would be on us shortly. He said they
