Advices from Norfolk to Thursday last, say the Federal authorities are enrolling citizens between 18 and 45 for the operation of the draft.
A wounded member of the 3d Alabama regiment died in Norfolk a few days since, and the ladies of that city procured a sarcophagus for the body, and about 4,000 persons attended the funeral.
Gen. Vicle gave his permission for a public funeral.
