Capt. O. J. Wise. The painful suspense of our community for some days as to the fate of this gallant young officer, was yesterday terminated by the sad intelligence of his death. The worthy leader of that band of heroes and of martyrs, the "Richmond Blues," has perished from the wounds he received while bravely defending his country, and all that is mortal of a valiant and immortal soldier will soon be consigned to its native dust. We have never met with a more chivalric and noble gentleman, and he was as modest and unassuming as he was fearless in spirit and brilliant in intellect. As editor of the Richmond Enquirer, he conducted that ancient and able journal with a vigor and dignity worthy its palmiest days. He made it at once a powerful and courteous vindicator of its political principles. and increased its time-honored reputation and influence. He was a gentleman of varied accomplishments, a fine scholar, an elegant linguist, and a chaste and pungent writer. In all man

n. Elizabeth City (only partially burned) and Edenton have fallen into the hands of the vandals. Plymouth, also, it is reported, is taken; and it is expected that they will proceed up the Roanoke towards Weldon, for the purpose, of course, of getting possession of the Seaboard and Roanoke Railroad. The Confederate steamer Arrow arrived this morning from Currutuck, having communicated with a steamer sent down to Roanoke Island under a flag of truce. She brought up the bodies of Captain O. J. Wise, Lieut. Wm. Selden and Capt. Coles. Capt. Wise was pierced by three balls, and Lieut. Selden was shot through the head. The Yankees who saw Captain Wise during the fierce and unequal contest, declare that he displayed a gallantry and valor, never surprised. Alas, that he has fallen in a contest not unequal. But, who has fallen more honorably, more nobly? Young Selden, too, died at his gun, while gallantly fighting the enemy that had gathered in so superior numbers upon our shores.
Resolutions of respect to the memory of Capt. O. Jennings Wise. --The following preamble and resolutions, offered by Colonel Geo. W. Munford, were adopted on Friday last at the meeting of the Honorary Members of the Richmond Light Infantry Blues and friends of that company, held at Bosher's Hall, corner of 9th and Main streellen our company, have met together to deplore our loss and to encourage and aid the survisors. With mournful hearts we lament the death of our late Captain O. Jennings Wise, who fell in front of battle a noble and gallant officer. He was elected Captain, a stranger to us except by reputation, upon the repre sentation of thorop. new buds and fresh leaves may spring and flourish in continual verdure. Resolved, That we will attend in a body at the care and escort the remains of Capt. Wise to the Capitol, where it is to be placed until the interment; that the honorary members who have heretofore been officers shall act as pall-besrers. Resolv

ered his services for this occasion. No other officer of rank was killed who held a rank above that of a lieutenant. General Wise's son commanded the rebels at the time of the attack by the Zouaves and others, and resisted the storming portion bravditionally. Colonel Hawkins found the battery at Shallowback Bay deserted, but took several prisoners. Captain O. Jennings Wise was attempting to make his escape in a boat, when he was shot in three places, and died next morning. The fonnecticut regiment, under the command of Gen. Foster, made a dashing bayonet charge upon the battery commanded by young. Wise, wading knee deep through mud and water, to get at the fort, and yelling like so many Indians. Mean while a detour was ma brought to bear against them. The Hawkins Zouaves leaped the front defences, bayonet in hand, as the rebels fled. Young Wise was not wounded here, as reported, but received his wound in endeavoring to escape from the island in a boat from Shallow

From Norfolk. --The enemy counted very strongly on creating a panic in this city by the capture of Roanoke Island, but if they get close enough here to see, they will witness quite a contrary effect. There is a strong determination here to welcome them "with bloody hands to hospitable graves." I heard from General Wise yesterday; he has entirely recovered from his late attack, and now stands ready to avenge the death of his noble son. He is the man for the times; would that we had more such. It is said that Colonel Wright is in possession of Elizabeth City. Many rumors are rife in the city this morning, but I refrain giving them, as they do not seem to be authentic.-- Cor. Petersburg Express.
