Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.
affairs in Lynchburg.

Lynchburg, Va, No.13
The trial of Geo. W. Hardwicke is progressing; the examination of witnesses closed yesterday and the argument will be commenced this morning.

The damages on the Va. and Tenn. Railroad by the late heavy rain storm, have been so far repaired as to admit of the cars passing over the road again. The double daily train will be put on to-day. The damage, though great, was not so heavy as reported.

The present alarming state of affairs in the country causes great concern with all in this section of country, and most of persons seem to be waiting in order to see what will be the future course of the revolutionary States.--With us many will be found who are for secession though I believe that a large majority are for waiting, and are not for precipitate action.

Great anxiety is felt as to the result of the election in Virginia.
