Graven county sound on the question.

--This county already has six companies in the regular service and four more forming, three of which are nearly ready for their guns. Capt. Whitty's company went into barracks near this office yesterday, and we understand Capt. R. A. Russell, in the upper end of the county, will be ready for marching soon. This is the only spirit that can successfully resist invasion and subjugation. If the war lasts six months longer, Craven will have eleven or twelve hundred men under arms.--Newborn (N. C. ) Progress.
