Northern Life Insurance companies. We understand that in reply to letters of Southern gentlemen who have insured in Northern societies, and have written to know whether, in the event of falling in defence of their homes against invasion, their insurance would be paid, the answer is, that when a soldier of the United States falls, who is insured, the amount will be paid; but in the case of a Southern soldier, the contract will not be deemed obligatory. Was ever such a cruel and heartless swindle known since the world was made? For years past, these societies have flooded the South with their circulars, sent their agents here, and induced thousands and tens of thousands of citizens in moderate circumstances to deposit with them the little surplus of their annual income, for the purpose of making some provision for their families after their death, and now, simply because they are true to the land to which they owe allegiance, they are to lose all which the labor of years has acc

a large "Home Guard." The Court also ordered 400 or 500 lances to be made, to be placed in every house in the county, for the women to fight with if we should be attacked. There is also a powder mill and a gun machinery now in operation at Huntersville.--The gun factory turns out the best Sharpe's rifles, which are to be used for the defence of the county. Mr. J. E. A. Gibbs is superintendent of the works. A great many of the citizens of Pocahontas are descendants of the Warwick and Lewis families, and these people have the same spirit as their ancestors had. All honor is due to our worthy and energetic fellow-citizen, Wm. Skeen, who has been very active in raising troops, and seeing them properly armed and fitted out. I think, beyond doubt, Pocahontas will be a unit for secession on the 23d of May. If Lincoln attempts to send forces from Ohio, armed men will spring up from every bush to keep them back, and every hill-side will glisten with bayonets.Pocahontas.

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.Cheering News from Western Virginia. Pocahontas Co., May 14, 1861. Some persons express doubts about Western Virginia being sound, but if those persons could only come to Pocahontas, they would no longer doubt the fidelity of this portion of the Old Dominion.

There are now three fine volunteer companies in the county, besides a large "Home Guard." The Court also ordered 400 or 500 lances to be made, to be placed in every house in the county, for the women to fight with if we should be attacked.
