most disagreeable position that men can possibly be placed in. To the men who took advantage of my absence to break up the old Sixty-ninth for the advancement of their own sordid interest, under the mask of patriotism, I shall have something to say on a more favorable occasion. Burnside's expedition. The following intelligence is culled from the Philadelphia Inquirer, of Jan. 22d: Rumors here seem to indicate that Gen. Burnside has abandoned the project of entering Pamlico Sound, and has gone up the Cape Fear River to take Wilmington, N. C. If this be true, it is quite probable that no demonstration will be made against Norfolk at present. An arrival from the expedition is now looked for with the greatest interest and anxiety. From Cairo, Ill., Jan. 19th, it is learned that the recent reconnaissance in force from Cairo was made in order to ascertain the strength and force of our position in Mississippi.

We learned in childhood to respect with a sort of affectionate regard Old Pamlico, whose outlines we have traced so often on the map; but the dear old sound has fallen into the hands of those whose reports are like the tales of idiots, "full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." The "reliable gentleman" has never before so much damaged his own reputation; and he has thrown a mythical cloud over everything from the sea shore of North Carolina. It will be many days before he can get the public ear, and long will that many-headed citizen remain incredulous about news from "Pamlico Sound."
