From Brunswick.

--We hear verbally, says the Macon Telegraph, that strong efforts are now being put forth, under the personal supervision of Gen. Wayne, to make up for lost time and give the enemy a reception. He is expected confidently. Strong assurances have been received from Richmond that Brunswick is the destined point of assault, and the hostile fleet is looked for only too soon — say, in about a week. Meantime, the most judicious disposition possible is being made of the means of defence at hand. Gen. Wayne has, probably, no superior in the country as an engineer, artillerist, or a scientific soldier generally; and there are few men equal to him in executive tact and energy. He will do what can be done in the limited time and with the scanty means; and he is also assisted by two experienced civil engineers from this place.--They are all looking for lively times and hot work at Brunswick.
