as advantageously situated, nor encompassed by as rich surroundings of country, as Beanfort. His object is supposed by some to be Norfolk. but if we are on believe the recent outgivings of Northern journals, his leading purpose is to make a demonstration against the Weldon and Wilmington railroad, with a view to cutting our great line of Southern communication. That thing seems for the present, to be the especial aim of the enemy in every quarter. His movements in Western Kentucky and Tennessee seem to have that single object for the present in view, and it has been repeatedly declared by Northern journals that Burnside's primary 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

Latest from the North.the Yankee victory in Tennessee.interesting Washington news.&c., &c., &c. A rebel picket detachment at a house near Germantown. Surrounding the house they took 12 prisoners, a capture effected, however, not without some show of resistance on the part of the enemy. Over's dozen shots were fired from the house at our men. Captain Wilson was hit by one shot in the right ear, the hall passing through and making argumently but not dangerous wound in the back of the neck. Sergeant Crumley was shot in the right leg, causing a painful but not serious flesh wound. These were the only shots of the enemy that took effect. While this firing was going on, a large company of mounted pickets, some of whom had escaped from the house, fled to a thicket near by, and opened fire upon our troops.--Major Curry, placing his revolver at the head of one of the captured prisoners, called out to the men in the thicket, if they fired another shot he would blow out the brains
The news from Tennessee. The reported raid of the enemy, by way of the Tennessee river, upon the town of Florence, is confirmed by dispatches received yesterday. We still cherish the hope that our forces in that quarter will thwart their design of getting possession of the railroad, and inflict summary chastisement upon the audacious invaders. We publish this morning the Federal accounts of the capture of Fort Henry, from which it will be seen that they are making the most of it.

Lynchburg, Va., Feb. 10. --The Lynchburg Virginian has received a private dispatch from Chattanooga, dated on the 9th inst., which states that the Federal gun-boats reached Florence about 4 o'clock P. M., yesterday. Troops were landed and the town occupied by them. They went up within a mile of Tuscumbia, Ala., last night. This morning they left and took to their gun-boats. A later dispatch to the Virginian from Chattanooga, dated to-day, says the reported fight at Bear Creek is untrue. The Lincolnites had again returned to Florence. No bridges had been burned on the railroad. Communication was entirely cut off between Chattanooga and Memphis. The Federals are landing at Eastport, Miss., 30 miles below Florence, on the Tennessee river. Memphis, Tenn., Feb. 10.--The Federal gunboats pass
