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

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.
