--The Raleigh (N. C.) Standard, of July 20, says: ‘
"We have begged that the volunteers of North Carolina now being enrolled, and who are equipping and drilling, will not disband.
We are quite sure that the authorities will not disband them, for the reason that before the 20th of August it will be seen, if we do not mistake, that they will all be needed.
's forces must be checked in Virginia
They must never be allowed to invade North Carolina
; therefore North Carolina
must render Virginia
and President Davis
all the aid in her power." Nobody who saw the splendid regiment which marched in Richmond
yesterday could doubt that the Old North State was doing all she could.
It was the 4th Regiment of State Troops, 1,100 strong, under Col. Anderson
, splendidly armed and equipped, each individual in it looking every inch a hero.
They went into camp near Howard's Grove
With such soldiers, we are all safe.
