The Northern Programme for coast invasion.
--A correspondent of the Griffin
(Ala.) Confederate States,
of the 30th ult., says the following extract from a letter, just received from a lady near Brunswick
, gives some insight into their designs:
My sister-in-law writes, that she has seen a Southern gentleman, just from the North
, who says that they are getting up every craft they can to send South, and it is said 100,000 men are to man them.
Their object — the whole coast from North Carolina
There are maps selling in New York giving the plan of the seaboard, and ten miles inwards, with every plantation and the owner's name, the number of his negroes; the name of every inlet and creek, &c. Their object is to destroy the crops and to carry off the negroes.
