--A letter to the Newbern Progress
, dated Goldsboro', N. C.
, Feb. 15th, says:
A company of Marylanders arrived here this morning, which will be assigned to some post in this State by Gen. Gatlin
The action of this company presents a strong appeal to our own twelve months men to re-enlist.
The company left Baltimore
on the 19th of May last, since which time it has been in service at various points in Virginia
, and was at the battle of Manassas
was taken their time of enlistment had just expired, and they had commenced on the sixty days furlough offered by the Government
before going into the service again; but, actuated by a noble patriotism, they threw up their furlough and at once volunteered to come to our assistance.
when will the day of thy deliverance dawn!
This company may possibly reach your place to-night.
