It proposed to have a force of cavalry and infantry, a thousand strong, collectively, and a section of artillery, go out from Newbern (then held by the National forces) and strike the railway between Wilmington and Goldsboroa with destructive energy, while two picked squadrons of cavalry and two thousand infantry, with a good battery, should land at Snead's ferry, at the mouth of New river, forty-one miles from Wilmington. This force should then march on that city, while another, composed of twenty-five hundred infantry, with ten pieces of artillery, should land at Masonboroa Inlet and push on toward Wilmington. It was believed that the menaces of these several bodies of troops would so distract and divide the Confederates that the capture of Wilmington would be an easy task. Circumstances prevented an attempt to execute General Graham's p

urday, two youths, one named Richard Dunlop, son of James Dunlop, the other Thomas Anderson, son of the late Frederick Anderson, instigated by a negro boy belonging to Dr. Coleman, fought a duel in play, the negro acting as second. By his direction, after stepping off ten paces, they turned and fired — young Anderson having a five-shooter and young Dunlop a pocket pistol. The latter fired first and missed, Anderson's pistol was then discharged, the ball entering his companion's stomach, just above the navel. A gentleman who came by the scene of combat conveyed young Dunlop home, where he now lies in a very dangerous condition, Dr. Snead having yesterday probed to the depth of over two inches, and found no traces of the ball.

During a very severe storm of wind and rain Friday night, his men were completely drenched with rain and their arms saturated. The nights and mornings are very cool up in these "diggins," and having to lay on the ground, with but a single blanket for covering, is not very pleasant. His company takes this occasion to return their sincere thanks to the City Council and citizens of Richmond, for the aid so kindly extended to them in preparing them for service, and will use every exertion to prove worthy of the confidences reposed in them. Should anything of importance transpire, you shall be informed of it. We miss the Dispatch very much, and can't get along without it. The mails are very irregular now, but no doubt it will be remedied after a while. Ned. The staff is as follows: Col. Wm. B. Tallaferro; Lieutenant Colonel, James R.
