Gladly did we receive the intelligence that the Convention had united Virginia with the Southern Confederacy, and had appointed President Jeff. Davis at the head of the Army and Navy of the State. Peace or war,--a whole peace,--no dodging,--no fooling,--or war to the knife, is all that will now satisfy our people. Our women, all of whom are as brave as soldiers, will be satisfied with nothing less. I will state that the captains of five of our companies were educated at military schools. Capt. Jones was educated at West Point; Dr. White, Capt. Wm. White, Jr., Capt. Preston, Capt. Carson, were educated at the Virginia Military Institute, at Lexington. The volunteers drill day and night. The ministers of the different churches have services every night or so for the volunteers in the barracks. The County Court has made an appropriation of $10,000 to aid in defence of the State.
