From Norfolk.

--The enemy counted very strongly on creating a panic in this city by the capture of Roanoke Island, but if they get close enough here to see, they will witness quite a contrary effect. There is a strong determination here to welcome them ‘"with bloody hands to hospitable graves."’

I heard from General Wise yesterday; he has entirely recovered from his late attack, and now stands ready to avenge the death of his noble son. He is the man for the times; would that we had more such.

It is said that Colonel Wright is in possession of Elizabeth City. Many rumors are rife in the city this morning, but I refrain giving them, as they do not seem to be authentic.-- Cor. Petersburg Express.
