The contemplated attack on Wilmington.

The Raleigh (N. C.) Progress says:

‘ 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.
