vy Department. The Navy Department has recently made several important changes in the officers of the respective squadrons. Capt. Mervine retires as Flag-Officer in the Gulf, and Capt. McKean has been appointed in his place. Capt. Goldsborough has been appointed to succeed Capt. Stringham in the command of the Atlantic squadron, the latter having asked to be relieved. This squadron has been divided.-- Capt. Goldsborough commands the Northern division, on the coasts of Virginia and North Carolina, and Capt. DuPont appointed to the command of the Southern Atlantic squadron, embracing the coasts of South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia. Iron-Glad Ships. The Navy Department, after taking the proper preliminaries, has accepted propositions from Messrs. C. S. Bushnell & Co., of New Haven, Merrick & Sons, Philadeiphia, J. Ericsson, New York, for the construction of iron-clad vessels. A chance for the innocent in Fort Lafayette. The U. S. District Attorney of New York h
Positions of Wise and Floyd — rumors — telegraphic communication, etc. Lewisburg, Va., Sept. 23, 1861. Editors of the Dispatch: I send you the following items, which you can use as you see fit: Gen. Wise is fortified a little this side of the top of Sewell Mountain. His position is a very strong one, commanding all approaches. Gen. Floyd has entrenched himself at Meadow Bluff, 15½ miles West of Lewisburg, and some eight miles, I think, east of Gen. Wise. The North Carolina and Georgia regiments which were on their way to join him, but which had not arrived when he so gallantly three times repulsed a greatly superior force, have since then strengthened his force. A splendid Mississippi regiment passed through town this afternoon to join Gen. Floyd. It was one thousand strong. The men were fine in spirit. The regularity of its movement, and the close order of the men, and the absence of stragglers, indicate much more than ordinary discipline. Ge
, and we have seen it stated that his secret, if, indeed, there was any, died with him. Recently we have seen favorable mention made of some tea grown in North Carolina. The last notice we have seen is that in the Washington (N. C.) Dispatch, and is as follows: "Selby Spencer, Esq., of Lake Comfort, Hyde county, has pror 12 bushels. This experiment, it seems, demonstrates that green ten--the veritable China tea — can be successfully grown and matured in the latitude of North Carolina. This is, therefore, an invaluable discovery. Let it be tried in every part of the State. We suppose that seed can be procured of Mr. Spencer. We will sen latitude, and exposure prevailing in the region of Greenville, S. C., were best suited to the tea plant. If we are right, and the experiments in progress in North Carolina, Georgia, and Louisiana, prove as favorable as they promise, there is an extensive belt of country in the Confederate States adapted to the cultivation and pr
News and rumors. The news from the North Carolina coast, which will be found under the telegraphic head, indicetes that the Federals contemplate further operations in that direction. Five U. S. vessels were reported off New Inlet yesterday at 12 o'clock, and two off Western bar.--New Inlet is in the vicinity of Wilmington, and the presumption is that the Yankees have designs of an invasion of that section of the State. It is well to be prepared for any desperate move on the part of the enemy, and these naval expeditions should be closely watched. It was currently rumored last evening that two Federal steamers on the Potomac had been fired upon and badly damaged by our bateries. The utmost interest and anxiety is now felt by the people to learn the progress of events, but we caution them against giving heed to any mere rumors. Whilst there is no doubt that important movements are in contemplation on the Potomac and on the peninsula. we are assured that nothing has th
pounds, but that it will hereafter be a little higher — say, 60 cents. The works are situated eighteen miles N. E. of Abingdon, and one hundred miles from Statesville. At the price, it seems to us that the people in all that section of North Carolina can supply themselves much cheaper by wagoning from the salt works than by paying from five to seven dollars a sack for Liverpool salt in the lower part of North Carolina and Virginia. Indeed, we are not sure that it might not be brought theNorth Carolina and Virginia. Indeed, we are not sure that it might not be brought there at a profit. It is stated to be in any desired quantity. More About Salt.--We are gratified to announce that the day for salt monopolists and extortionists is over. The Norfolk Day Book says: We are happy to state that this article is being manufactured among us, and large supplies will soon be placed in the markets.--We have examined articles of this homemade salt, and find it exceeds in strength the articles heretofore used by us. We are always glad to record instances of
Mineral resources of the Confederacy. --Mr. N. A. Pratt, of Talmadge, Ga., writing to the Savannah Republican, devotes a part of his letter to the mineral resources of the Confederate States. We make the following extracts: "It may be of interest to your readers to know, that, having spent the last summer in a general geological reconnaissance of North Georgia, East Tennessee, and North Carolina, I have had a special eye to those mineral resources which could be made specially available against our Northern foes. Saltpetre, sulphur, and lead, have all claimed my attention. "The three States mentioned cannot supply lead enough for a single battle of this metal; however, we have, or can get, all we shall need. With regard to sulphur, it can be made in abundance from the pyrite, which exists in large quantities in various localities. The apparatus and process are extremely simple, but we will not soon be obliged to resort to our native supplies, as I believe there is
