Whether they intend sending a portion of the fleet up the Neuss or not is for the future to develop. We are sure, however, if they intend an attack on Fort Macon that our river be in the programme. Well, it hath been written in history that Newbern is a pleasant place to be at, and that her people are a hospitable, kind, and warmhearted people, and if they should think enough of us to come to see us we will endeavor to give them as warm a reception as possible.
