Suffolk after the fall of Roanoke Island, and by getting possession of Suffolk and the two railroads at this place, Norfolk might be attacked in the rear, and probably forced to surrender. The plan was to approach Suffolk from the direction of Edenton, Winton or some point on the Chowan, by a land force, while the gunboats at Old Point would attempt to ascend the Nansemond river, at the same time. But while Burnside was maturing his grand scheme, the iron-clad Virginia paid a visit to Hampton Roads, and demolished everything in her way. This made the proposed attempt to ascend the Nansemond with gunboats wholly impracticable, and changed the whole programme of Burnside. He immediately concentrated his fleet at Hatteras and determined to attack Newbern. Thus, it will be seen, that what saved us from conflict here plunged Newbern into ruin. As soon as it was certain that Burnside had gone toward Newbern, things became more quiet here, and have thus remained. What, however, ma

He may proceed up the Neuse and attempt the capture of Kinston and Goldsboro'; he may attack Wilmington, or he may suddenly return to Albemarle Sound, and, by a land march, attempt to reach Suffolk, where he may imagine we have become less vigilant. We are glad to see that no less vigilance is exercised by our military authorities now than when the enemy was expected every day. Col.
