n tendered to the Governor to-day, who are ready to march instantly upon any service our Governor may command. A special train leaves here to-night, to carry the above Proclamation to the distant counties of the West. We all waited anxiously at the telegraph office to-night, hoping to hear that the Ordinance of Secession had passed your Convention, but no such information came. If Virginia does not act promptly, we cannot wait for her; indeed, we are not waiting now, but seizing upon every thing belonging to the Federal Government in our State, and preparing for the conflict. Col. C. C. Tew, of the Hillsboro' Military Academy, has been sent by the Governor to take command of the troops in Fort Macon. We had an enthusiastic meeting here last night, when such men as Gov. Manly and John W. Syme, editor of the Register, urged the immediate secession of North Carolina from the Union. Both of these gentlemen have been up to a recent date strong Union men. Hiawatha.

[Special Dispatch to the Richmond Dispatch.]Warlike preparations in North Carolina--Libern! Subscriptions, &c. Weldon, N. C., April 19. --The passengers on the train from Wilmington, to-day, were surprised at almost every point on the road by the energetic preparations for war. At Enfield, two companies of troops were starting for Fort Macon, to garrison that point.--The North Carolinians have awoke with an energy that will be terrible to their enemies. I hear that a company of 23 free colored men have volunteered their services in throwing up sand batteries. John Long, a wealthy citizen, has subscribed $2,000 to procure arms for the troops, and a messenger left this afternoon for Richmond, commissioned to make the purchase. Secession flags dot the country along the route from Wilmington, and even the negroes waved the Confederate banner at the cars as they passed.
