We hare copies of the Richmond Dispatch of the 2d, and one or two other Secesh papers. From them we make the following summary of public news and other items, showing the state of things in those sections of Seceasia. Thus the Dispatch of the 3d inst. offers to pay liberally for any copies of Northern papers that sny one may furnish to their editorial room. This is a pregnant sign that the operations of the Secesh "underground railroad" has been much impeded of late. the Dispatch claims that at Soarey Creek sii hundred of Will's men had Utterly tollted fifteen hundred il Linoolnites!" This is the first beard of any ?uch Tictory, though said to hare occurred month* ago. It adds that McClellan's victory at Rich Mountain (wherein Garnett was killed) virtually forced Wise to evacuate the West It alse says that Floyd baa advanced a third time against the Union forces, but has half his oommand in hospital, hort du combat. The same journal characteriies the late Hatteras Union State Convention ss "a political farce." It charaetemes Parker H. French (now safe in Fort Warrfen) as an agent of Parson Brownlow?bosh It claims (on the authority of the Charleston (Mo ) Courier) that Jeff. Thompson has "captured the Platte Valley"?which u news here, indeed. It credits the army correspondent of the Knoxville Register with a declaration that the rebel works at Cumberland Oap amount to the strongest fortifications in Secessia. John J. Werth, "agent." advertises that so great is the scarcity of coke, (in Richmond.) that hereafter he csn only supply any one private family with a single load per month. A quartermaster advertises for five hundred army wagons for the use of the C. S. Army, and adds that he will purchase any number that abj one may have for sale. Mechanics of every description are?judging from the advertisements for them?as scarce as hen teeth in Riohmond. Cause why?they have nearly all been forced into the army as common soldiers. The surgeon in charge of the General Ho*= pital in Richmond advertises for nine good negro men and boys to hire as nurses! The brokers advertise any nnmber of Confederate and Virginia State bonds for sale, and offer heavy rates for gold and silver. The cashier of the Farmers Bank (at Richmond, gives notice that the payment of $24,543 01 which the bank holds a* the property of Capt. R II. Ramsey, has been "enjoined" by the district oourt of the C. S., as being liable to sequestration. None except those known to be actual residents on the line of the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad, are allowed to travel upon it without passes. The Richmond and Petersburg Railroad Company require "passes" from all who travel over their road. Gov. Letcher estimates (in his message) the number of Virginia secesh troops in the field at 70,000; says that Virginia has furnished 350 pieces of artillery, and expended six millions of dollars for war purposes since April 7, last. He insists that the war must not end until the authority of Virginia again extends to the Ohio, and also that the possession ef Maryland by Secesh, is necessary to secure to Virginia the counties of Accomac and Northampton. | We think we see them in possession of Maryland.J H m F Gordon, (of Albemarle, we take it,) has been elected Clerk of the Virginia House of Delegates On motion of James Barboar, of Calpeper, James L. Kemper, of Madison, was, on the 2d inst . elected sneaker of theWirginia House of Delegates Harris Burgiss, of King William, was also elected Sergeant-at-Arms, and Rabt W Burke, of Augusta, Doorkeeper. The Confederate State Court in Richmond have confiscated $15,000 in the hands of the t ankers Pureed, in that city, the property of >> shmead et alt, of Philadelphia, ordered it to be paid over to the C. S Receiver, and that tLe Purcell's lawyer, J. H. Gilmer, shall get o>< fee whatever out of it. , Oo the night of the 1st thej had auite a -oow storm in Riohmond. * the La Fourcbe (La.) Union (change the name) cemplains that three of our vessels lately sent Wu to Coilliou Island, the men on which made sad havoc with certain cattle of the Thibadouz family and Judge Barras. Private James A. Miller has been shot, near Winchester, in pursuance of a sentenoe of a court martial, for attemptiag the life of Capt. Henderson, of the Jefferson Cavalry. He was shot by a file of men from Capt H.'s comply The Dispatch pronounces the story that the original copy of the Seuth Carolina ordinance of secession was found at Beaufort when our forces entered it, and forwarded to our Navy Department, a "tough story." It is alleged that "the Yankees attempted a landing on the night of the 25th ult. at the mouth of the Perdido river, near Pensacola, but were "most signally repulsed by our gallant troops there." News here A oerreepondent writing from Abingdon, (southwestern) Va., to the iiispatch, says that the burned bridges in East Tennessee will be repaired in a few weeks; that the Virginia 56th and 57th regiments were then in Abingdon on the way to join Gen. Humphrey Marshall in Russell county, Va. The regiment of Col Moore, raised just there, were to march with them on the next day. These troops, those at his camp, and those at Pound Gap, were to form a junction, and with them, obese Humphrey was soon to march into Eastern Kentucky to fire the Kentucky heart. He was to be in supporting distance of Zollicoffer, and was expected "greatly to stiffen" the Confed cause in that quarter. The roads in the mountainous region of Virginia had been impassable for some weeks. They render (in the writer's judgment) that county safe from invasion for the winter. Concerning Floyd's exploit* about Cotton Hill, the writer says: "Gen. Floyd went down to Cotton Hill, Fsyette county, on a plan concerted with Gen. Lee, to take the enemy in the rear, while Gen. Lee should occupy him in front, before Sewell. Shortly before setting out on his hasardous and adventurous expedition, a large portion of Gen Lee's force was ordered to Pocahontas oouaty, and Gen. Lee himself was soon after sent to South Carolina; leaving a very small force In front of the enemy at Meadow Bluff. When Gen. Floyd, therefore, reached Cotton HjU, instead of being able to effect anything in the enemy's rear, ae found that the enemy were entirely free, if they chose, to get in hu rear, and to employ their whole force to surround him. He held his position however, which was clearly untenable, for several weeks, and only withdraw when it became necessary, to prevent being surrounded by two columns of the enemy?under Gen Schenok and Gen B/nham?which were marching to a common point near Fayette Court House, ia his rear. This movement he eluded successfully, by reaching the point before the enemy, which he did with some hard fighting and a verv small loas of man. He accomplished it without any loes of baggage or property, other than what was necessary to be destroyed and left in order to make room ia the wagons for the siek?of course preferring to destroy property rather than leave his siek in the hands of the enemy. Some of his men wero badly off for shoe* in eonseqnonoe of several boxes of numbers li's, It's, and It's having bee* seat him from Riohmond, (negro shoes,) which, of course were too large for the feet of white " After baffling Sohenck and Bonham by reaohing Fayette Conrt Hoase before they formed tneir junction there, he saw very little of them at all. In fact it was impossible for them to follow hps in any foree ; and his subsequent movements after leaving Fayette Court House war* exclusively with reference to wip f / St at. - T VSft. XVIII. WASHINGTON. D. C. WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 11. 1861. N?. 2.748. t?r quarters He hu established his winter camp near Petertown, in Monroe county, about forty miles from the White Sulphur Springs, and about thirty from the Virginia and Tennessee railroad at Newbern, Pulaski county. His c*mp thus affords protection to both those points, aad is loeated in a country fruitful in supplies. It is not deemed possible for the etaetny to p&ss the mountains to either Newbern or the Springs, such is the horrible condition of the roaaa It would seem that the enemy are themselves convinced of this fact, as I see that seven or eight of tneir regiments are announced as ordered to Kentucky; where I am quite sure they will find the roads in as bad a condition as in Western Virginia." A Norfolk correspondent writes to the Dispatch that ob the 2d inst., in the engagement at Ions taw of that date, the Confea steamer Patrick Henry played the very d?1 with an United States gunboat and a frigate, disabling them, Ac., Ac., and that the ooncussion of the firing shook the windows in Norfolk, more than ten miles off. Not a shot from the Patrick Henry took effect, it will be remembered. In his message, Qov. Letcher pays that a large portion of the ammunition and all the heavy artillery sent to other secesh States for coast defence was captured in the navy yard at Norfolk. He argues to show the folly of an attempt on the part of the rebels to take Fortress Monroe. a|e asserts that Virginia has in the service at tnis time fifty-nine regiments of infantry, several now forming, eight of cavalry, and other independent companies, and also a regiment of artillery, with other single companies. On the 30th June, he says the number of Virginia troop in the field was 41,845 men of all arms. He inveighs loudly against the Western Virginians for declining to acquiesce In the Stated secession. He vehemently urges his followers to screw thei? courage up to renewed secession exertions. He intimates that the Virginia Military Institute (at Lexington) is now shut up, urges the production of gunpowder, and remarks, in effect, but for the State's railroad facilities the rebellion would have been a failure ere this. Change is astonishing high in Richmond? 20 Eer cent. Alexander Hill advertises that he as issued small notes (fractions of a dollar) to the amount of $15,000. to enable him to make change without paying 20 per cent, premium for specie to that end, and charging it to his customers. The Virginia State Convention has passed an ordinance taking away from the people the election of Attorneys for the Commonwealth, Clerks, Sergeants and Constables in towns and cities. Edward A. Pollard, who, whilom, flourished here, has published in Richmond " a new Southern book." The Richmond theater recently gave a benefit to the Hampton sufferers, by which $250 I were realized. A destructive fire occurred ia Georgetown, South Carolina, not long since, in which $10,000 worth of naval stores were destroyed. Many advertisers are bidding high, in the Dispatch, for substitutes to serve in the army. The " wants," in Richmond, seem to be pretty much after that fashion. Marshall Parks, of Norfolk, advertises four steamboats for sale?no business now exists for them there, evidently. THE DOLLAR STAR! INDUCEMENTS TO CLUBS! NOW IS THE TIME TO SUBSCRIBE! The Fullest and >l??t Reliable News from the Seat of Government! Reading Matter for the Fireside Circle! The present year la undoubtedly the most eventful In the political history of this country, and the record of occurrences transpiring at the Federal Metropolis is naturally ol striking and remarkable interest. The public desire to receive prompt, fnJl and reliable accounts of all that passes Mere is most Intense, and we have consequently made alterations and improvements in the weekly Issue of the Washington Star to meet this want most satisfactorily In compliance with the wish of the public the paper baa been changed from a quarto to the more convenient folio shape, and now appears a handsome sheet of thirty-two columns, filled with choice and carefully prepared Reading Matter, and bearing the name of the "Washington Dollar Weekly Star." As indicated by the title, we now furnish the paper at the unprecedented low price of ONE DOLLAR PER YEAR 11 Or barely more than the price of the paper upon which it Is printed. It is our determination to make the Weekly Star not only the largest and handsomest Dollar Newspaper in the United States, but that It shall absolutely be The Best Family Weeely Newspaper in the World!!! It contains the very fullest, freshest, and most important details of all that transpires at the Seat of Government; editorials on all the impor tant topics of the times; the news of the week; Interesting correspondence from all parts of the world; capital storlea; humorous and graphic sketches, and the pick of the floating miscellany of literature and gossip.

Capt Flagg is from Connecticut, and has had large experience in matters pertaining to this department. He envoys the reputation of being an excellent executive officer. Yesterday, a man named J. T. Monroe arrived here from Winchester From all I can gather, be was a private in the Confederate army, but having come nnder the ban of their arbitrary military code he fled, and foQnd refuge within the Union lines. The information he brings is not of high Importance. Gen. Jackson's force consisted of one brigade, (four regiments of about 7110 m-n each.) and was located live miles east of Winchester His men were principally residents of the county, were plentifully supplied and clothed, and were generally contented. Ashby's cavalry were flourishing about in the neighborhood of Msrtinsburg. and Pendleton's battery was understood to be on its wav from Bath to Winchester. There were many Union men in and around Winchester, but they were afraid to openly avow th el rsen tlm en ts. From the Seath.
