From Norfolk.

[Special Correspondence of the Dispatch.]
Norfolk, June 20, 1861.
A number of boys, between the ages of 14 and 17, have organized a company called the Norfolk Young Guerillas, for the protection of our city. These young gentlemen have gone to work in a very commendable spirit, and elected their officers, as follows: Captain, H. Hall; 1st Lieutenant, S. B. Jordan; 2d Lieutenant, R. Granberry; 3d Lieutenant, A. Jordan; Orderly Sergeant, John Samuels.--They drill nightly.

David Williams, one of the hands at work on the sloop-of-war Plymouth, at the Navy-Yard, was accidentally drowned yesterday.--He leaves a wife and several small children entirely destitute.

Wm. H. Parker, Chas. B. Duffield, and a number of other gentlemen, leave here to-day on their way out West, to join Brig. Gen. H. A. Wise.

Lincoln's serfs at the Rip Raps have been amusing themselves for several days by firing shell at our battery on Sewell's Point; but with no effect. They fall harmless.

The health of the troops in this section is remarkably good. Macclesfield.
