The Second Regiment N. C. Volunteers.
--This splendid Regiment of citizen soldiery — worthy representatives of the chivalry of the Old North State--who have been for a week or two past encamped at Howard's Grove
, received marching orders yesterday morning, and in an hour thereafter were on their way to the Petersburg depot
, en route for the seat of active operations near Norfolk
We cannot too highly praise the appearance of the departing soldiers.
The Regiment is splendidly armed — the men stout, and used to fatigue, and full of a glorious spirit of determined resistance to the tyranny that would fain bring into subjection this fair land of ours.
They will worthily represent on the battle-field the Southerner
's idea of resistance.
The Regiment, all told, numbers about 1,300 men.--They are officered in a way to leave no room to doubt that they will not put in their best licks against the common enemy.
