Norfolk and the rivers.

We are glad to learn that the preparations for the defence of Norfolk are of the most complete character, and that our seaboard city, which bade defiance to the British in the late war, is now able to laugh to scorn the Yankee invaders. We learn, also, that the batteries on the York and the James are of a very formidable character, and can sink with case any fleet that would be foolhardy enough to attempt the passage of the river.
