Designs of the enemy.

--It is the opinion in well-informed circles that the naval expedition now fitting out at the North is designed for the coast of Georgia, and that the enemy proposes to attempt the landing of a force of 25,000 men at the town of Brunswick, in that State. A large amount of property in Brunswick is owned by Northern men, and they are doubtless concerned for its safety; but a more important consideration with the Lincolnites is the establishment of a naval depot in that section, for which the locality is peculiarly favorable — much more so than Pensacola, which they have lost. To be forewarned is to be forearmed; and though the conjecture may be erroneous, it certainly has the appearance of plausibility. The enemy has announced his intention of sending out an expedition, as he did previous to the attack upon Hatteras; and every spot which seems to be in the least approachable by his fleet, should be carefully watched and guarded.--Of one thing we are assured: The Yankees cannot send out many sea expeditions of so formidable a character, without decimating their army on their frontier.
