The Daily Dispatch: October 26, 1861., [Electronic resource], By the Governor of Virginia.--a Proclamation. (search)
ed out, just as those below were getting suffocated. Exciting intelligence. The Newbern (N. C.) Progress, of the 23d, contains the following: An extra train arrived here yesterday morning from Goldsboro', bearing a dispatch from Gen. Gatlin to Gen. Hill, Col. Singletary, and other officers in command in this section, which he had received from Gen. Huger, of Norfolk, to the effect that a large Federal fleet has left New York for an attack on this place and Fort Macon. The information seems to have reached General Huger through a channel not altogether reliable, but supported by circumstances which did not justify inattention to it, hence he communicated the information to Gen. Gatlin, and he urges upon the officers in command here to push forward the works with all possible speed. We think this is right, but at the same time would as soon think the attack would fall about Norfolk or somewhere on the Potomac. It may be a feint. Sugar — better times coming.
