The North Carolina junior reserves at Wilmington. --The surrender of a large number of the North Carolina junior reserves in the fight at Wilmington, with little, if any, resistance, which has excited remark, is thus explained by the Wilmington Journal. It appears that it was not the boys' fault: Of the juniors ordered to Fort Fisher, some were put into the bomb-proofs and some were ordered to another point. Of these latter, something like one hundred and fifty, under command of Major Reece, were surrendered to a captain and five men, who demanded the surrender, informing the Major that he was surrounded and that resistance was useless. Lieutenant Hamblin, as we learn, refused to surrender and walked off, and some twelve men with him. The enemy had no force to stop them. They had no force to compel a surrender. It was a transparent sell, which ought not to have deceived Major Reece or anybody else; but apparently it did. No one suspects treachery, that we know of.
