From Norfolk.[special correspondence of the Dispatch] Norfolk, Va., Aug. 21, 1861. The foreign ship alluded to in my last is the Spanish was steamer Petronella. She is now at another in Hampton Roads. Duncan Hobertson, Esq., the Spanish Consul, has gone down to the ship, and, of course, will bring the particulars raintive'o the visit of the welcome foreigner to the waters of the Chesapeake. She anchored in the Roads some time last year, when the officers came up to the city and were properly entertained by some of our citizens. The polite Spanish officers expressed themselves in strong terms of satisfaction with regard to the manner in which they were received. A large steamship passed out to Gen. yesterday. Several large ships are still anchored off Fort Monroe. A considerable number of coasting vessels passed in the Capes on Monday and yesterday, and came to anchor in the Roads, awaiting the change of the wind from east ward. The tall pole ejected last June
inventive minds from the purest of lightness as a desirable quality in the steam engine. Will some such mind do me the favor to investigate and teat the following hints ! The fuel to be charcoal, or the lightest procurable; the bottler tubular, copper tubes of a half inch diameter, capable of resisting an internal pressure of several hundred pounds, and forming a basket work around the fuel. Would a steam chamber be indispensable? What would be the objection to water from the boiler being thrown into the cylinder, as in Perkins' steam generator? As all our tubular steam-engines use their tubes only for conveying the flame, the machinist who shall attempt the engine I am calling for may not at first assent to the superiority of filling the tubes with water, and reserving the larger space for the fuel. Investigation will demonstrate that the change I suggest is indispensable for generating the greatest power with the least weight. Richmond, August 21, 1861. F. G. S.
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.North Carolinians Preparing for the field. Camp Clarme, Aug. 21, 1861 Camp Clarke, as you are perhaps aware, is the rendezvous of the Second Regiment of North Carolina Cavalry, under command of Colonel Spruill. This regiment is being equipped and completed for the service, and will, I think, be very effective in the Yankee-killing business — at any rate, in consideration of the valor and talent we have in our regiment, it may reasonably be expected that the future historian will dedicate to us a few pages of brilliant exploits. We certainly have plenty of the material of which good warriors are made, and when we get considerable training, our horses, equipage, &c., will be ready to meet the vandals, to assist our brethren in the field in driving them back off the soil of the Southern Confederacy, to their Northern hives, amidst the frost and snow of their own in hospitable skies. I said we have plenty of the material of
