The contemplated attack on Wilmington.
The Raleigh (N. C.) Progress
There are various rumors from below but we can make but little out of them.
The impression gains ground that Wilmington
is to be attacked, and that we are to have an active campaign along the coast this winter.
We have seen gentlemen who left Kinston
on yesterday, and they say the impression is prevalent there that the enemy are landing a considerable force at Morehead city
and in Onslow county
It is also stated that there is a fleet off Wilmington
We know nothing of the truth of these statements and only give them as rumors.
We shall not be surprised, however, to hear at any time that Wilmington
has been attacked, or that the enemy are marching on Kinston
We hope that the authorities will be prepared for these movements.
