Hon. Alex. H. Stephens.

--This gentleman, who was in Richmond last week, passed through Wilmington, N. C., on Saturday, on his way to Montgomery, Alabama. In obedience to enthusiastic calls from a large crowd congregated at the Wilmington depot, he said his mission to Virginia had been perfectly successful — the land of the Lees and the Henrys and the Madisons and the Jeffersons, was now in the Confederacy. Maryland, too, had shown the spirit of old days. The cause of Baltimore was the cause of all, and she must be sustained. Action — action — action was now the word. We were contending against a hostile rule — fighting to repel an invading foe. We must be equal to the occasion, and trusting in the goodness of our cause, and relying upon the God of Battles, we must conquer.
