imary purpose is a demonstration upon our railroad. It remains to be seen whether such be his real design, and with what success he will prosecute it. The experience of Sherman in a similar undertaking may possibly be his own. An assault upon Norfolk is the only object next after this railroad enterprise, commensurate in importance with the magnitude of the expedition. In such an undertaking, the enemy's vessels could be of little direct use. The water approaches to that city from North Carolina are too narrow, tortuous, and easily obstructed, to admit the use of vessels, and if the enemy attempts a land attack, the chances in our favor of repelling him are two or three to one. The reduction of Norfolk would be the work of months, and could only be effected by a large increase of Burnside's forces, an increase which the Yankee exchequer is not able to afford for an operation stretching through a protracted period. Nothing at all can save their Treasury, and nothing can keep th
The exciting occurrences at Roanoke Island, resulting in a reverse to our arms, was the theme of conversation yesterday in the city, to the exclusion of almost every other topic. The fact that some of our Richmond companies were engaged in the fight, occasioned an intense and painful anxiety, particularly among those which could not be well concealed. It is but a short period since the Wise Legion, after an arduous and toilsome campaign in Western Virginia, left here for the coast of North Carolina, and though now defeated in one of the most desperate conflicts of the war, it is at least consoling to know that the men fought with determined bravery, against overwhelming adds, and won for themselves the proud appellation of heroes, of which their present situation cannot deprive them. The Light Infantry Blues, (Company "A," of the Legion,) date their organization as far back as the year 1793, and number among their honorary members many of our oldest and most venerated citizens. T
nt, and was a member of the graduating class of 1836, which included also Joseph R. Anderson and Christopher Q. Tompkins, of Virginia; Montgomery C. Meigs, of Georgia; Peter V. Hagner, of the District of Columbia, O'Brien, of Pennsylvania; Allen, of Ohio, and others, all prominent in the existing war. Four of the same class have been killed in battle, namely; Shackleford, of Virginia, at Molino del Rey; Burke, of N. Y., at Churubusco; Daniels, of N. H., at Molino del Rey, and Haskins, of North Carolina, at Monterey. Gen. Tilghman was promoted a brevet Second Lieutenant in the First Regiment Dragoons, July 1, 1836, and made Second Lieutenant four days thereafter, but in September following resigned, as many of the officers of the army did about the same time, in order to follow the profession of civil engineering. He was division engineer on the Baltimore and Susquehanna Railroad, and assistant engineer in the survey of the Norfolk and Wilmington Canal, of the Eastern Shore Railroad,
resentatives was a signal defeat of this emancipation or no-war cabal. Proclamation of the Federal "Governor" of North Carolina. State of N. Carolina, Executive Depar't, Hatteras, Jan. 22, 1862. To the People of North Carolina: The iNorth Carolina: The invincible arms of the republic at length advance to the suppression of the great revolt against popular rights, and the national authority which has essayed to rob you of your American citizenship, and to enslave you to the will of relent less domestcome among you are not foes but friends, and their mission is one of mercy and relief. The war they wage is not upon North Carolina and her people, but upon the rebels and traitors who have invaded your territory, and who hold you in constrained andtecting ensign of the nation. Side by side with that glorious flag they have placed the re-erected standard of loyal North Carolina, and acting in concert with citizens of other sections of the State, they have proclaimed a Provisional Government fo
on the 1st of January, 1862, from which we make up the following brief summary: Number of applications for patents during the past year , 304; caveats, 110; patents issued, 57; United States patents and assignments thereof recorded, 112; amount of fees received, $9,000.90; amount of expenditures, $6,188.28; excess of receipts over expenditures, $2,812.62. The patents issued were distributed among the several States thus: To citizens of Virginia, 15; Georgia, 9; Alabama, 7; Louisiana, 6; North Carolina, 5; South Carolina, 4; Mississippi, 4; Tennessee, 3; Arkansas, 2; Florida, 1; Texas, 1. Eighteen of the patents that have been allowed cover improvements in fire-arms, or other destructive implements of war; and with the view of showing that some of them have striking merit, the Commissioner points to the fact that they have been adopted by the Government for use against the enemy, after trial, in preference to inventions of a similar character which, originating in foreign countries, ha
Corn, Whiskey, and distilleries. --The I redell Express, of Statesville, N. C., complains that in consequence of the large number of distilleries that have gone into operation in North Carolina, the price of corn and grain generally has advanced largely. The Express predicts that unless the distilleries are suppressed, corn will be $5 per bushel in midsummer.
