On Tuesday of last week it was armoune. cd by telegraphto Gov. Clark, that tho Bam Bido expedition had entered Pamlico Sound 125 vossels with 23,000 men on board. This information was fttid to hare been com- i.vanu i x nufc who uau maao nil es cape from tho fleet. The object of th ene my, it was further stated, is to attack New- born, Washington and Roanoke Island; and tho island being captured, they will have full sweep at tho counties on Albemarle Bound And tho towns of Edenton and Ply. mouth. The design of the cemy is also said to be, to go np Chowaa river to the Blackwater and take tho Seaboard and Roa noke Railroad ; and that baring possessed themselves of that, they may take the bridge at Wcldon and cut off reinforcomenta while they weuld move down on Portsmouth and Norfolk. Up to this writing no further information has beea received, and no intelligence ofaa attack being made at any point, ha given rise to the opinion that there is proba bly some mistake about the vessels being in Pamlico" Sound, as reported, or that the point 6f attack is not on our coast, or that they were waiting for .noarrrvat cr-TOe-ranc when tho simultaneous attack was to be made, from the Potomac to tho Mississippi rirer. Before putting this paper to press, howev er, we shall doubtless hear something aore definite as to the situation and operations of the fleet, and it may be of an attack on some of our towns on the coast. We learn that large numbers of women and children have been sent off from Newborn, in view of an anticipated bombardment of that place, and we presume the same is the case in the oth er towns. This is a prudent and proper course to bo pursued, as their removal will leave the men nothing to look after baft the invading fee, and to welcome them with bloody hands to hospitable graves." We are glad to learn that our friends on the coast feci able to make a successful resistance to the landing of tho yankees; but should they sue. cccd in gaining a foothold, thair passage into the interior will bo most surely and success fully prevented. It is indeed a most perilous timo for Eas tern North Carolina. As a cotcmporary re marks, a severe blow may be looked for Which nothing but untiring vigilance, indomitable energy, adequate numbers, suitable arms, plenty of ammunition and feuless courage can repel. In the name of God aad our country, let North Carolina vindicate her ancient fame as a disciplo of liberty, pour out all her en ergy and strength, in defending her soil from the sword and the torch of thoso bestial in vadcrs. If we cannot conquer them by our numbers and courage, let every house and hamlet, crcry bale of cotton and crib of corn be burnod to ashes, as ,we retreat before them; and let nothing but desolation be tho trophy of their arms. Tho Northern papers which have come to hand at Norfolk during the last few days, clearly foreshadow that the point of attack fixed for tho Burnsido expedition is the North Carolina coast, Tho Previdenco (R I.) Journal of the 12th inst., thinks tho nature of the flotilla forbids it being carried round Capo Hatteraa, and therefore, if not destined for the Potomac, it li intended to enter Pamlico or Albemarle eounda, and attack Norfolk la the mr of Chowan river, or elfe posh forward to Wei- don and get possession ef the railroad at thai point, Otherwise it might proceed by Now. Wn to Ooldsbaro and Raleigh. Tho New York evening Poet, points to the Intended occupation of the railroad at Wei dcrt. Should the Yaukccs leave their ehfpa fifty mil, on the soil ol North Carolina, the will n$Vfcr gt back to them.

It is also said that the Confeder ate troops were in full retreat upon Knoxville Tenn. . . ' From Kentucky. The Fort Hen nr mv. respondent of the Union and A merirAn un der date of January 20th, says that three Federal gunboats came within three or four miles of the fort last Saturday and fired 22 shots from behind an island three miles below, all of which fell short more than a mile. The gunboats then retired. It has since been ascertained that they landed 2500 troops at a Ferry 22 miles below the fort. It is understood that between 8,000 and 10,000 Federals are marching from Mayfield, Kentucky, either upon Fort Henry or Paris, Tenn. General Van Dorn Dassed through Nh. tille on the 19th, it is believed, en route for uowiing ureen. Passengers who arrived at Nashville, on the 21st, report that the Federals to the num ber of 10,000 or 12,000 are at Murray. Cal- iuaj t,u., ivy., mues irom l'aris, Tenn. It is said that they are marching in the di rection ot the latter place, but nothing defi nite is known of their movements or inten tions. It is supposed that their object is to seize the railroad and burn the brirW to prevent communication between Colnmhnc and Bowling Green. A despatch from Memphis, dated tho 21st says the, latest intelligence f romParis is to the effect that a large Federal force at Murray Ky., is threatening Fort Henry and the Memphis and Ohio railroad, their object be ing to cut off communication between Mem phis and Bowling Green. There is some ex citement at Paris, 25 miles from Murray Several slaveholders have already come' to Memphis with their negroes. There is nothing new from Columbus. An attack was expected there every moment. Fkom Sataknah. The Savannah News of the 22d, learns from a gentleman just from Florida, thatXedar Keys were captured by the federals on Thursday. Heavy firing was heard in that direction the same day. The Norfolk Day Book of the 22d, says : ' intelligence has been conveyed to us that McClellan was preparing to cross the PoU mac; and when our informant left the point of observation, the necessary preparations were very nearly completed. The Yankees are represented asbeingabout to make one more great effort, upon which they rest their ability to subjugate the Sosth. That they may have nothing to upbraid them selves with in case of defeat, they have even gone so far as to ask the direction and bless ing of God. To this end Friday last wai ob served, in Washington City, as a day of fas ting and prayer. ' Wo learn that the seeming tardiness of Gen. McClellan in moving forward, has been explained by that officer to . the satisfaction Of the cabinet - In a receht private confer ence with them, he made a statement of the motives by which he was actuated, and de- cianng among other things, that up to that time he had not been thorntip4iU nt-tm.ra,. . - - " f X Jr w " UOT &n advance, but thnt nnw he on mA . . . - ' .

We learn from the New born Progress that Dr. K. H. Hooker and JA. Simpson, who have for sometime been engaged in the Plough manufacturing busi ness there, under the name and style of Simpson & Hooker, notwithstanding the Stringency of the times, and the startling news we hear of the near approach of the yankees, have recently completed a purchase of tensive machinery and fixtures, and entered.into arrangements for putting into op eration a foundiy, turning lathes, &c, in con nexion with their plough factory, of sufficient capacity to meet any demand that may be made upon them, in the way of manufacturing iron, bttn at to ouantitr and oualitr.

"Who grows old gracefully ? Who can dis- play a charm through the dim and sunken eye, the faded check, the thin grey hair, the shrinding, weakening frame, on which time strikes the hour more punctually than a clock ? Not the worldly-hearted, who grudge each year that cuts off a portion for enjoyment, and shortens the lease of life j who walk in thoughtlesness among seen things, and re gard not things unseen and eternal. Not the covetous, whose satisfied to-morrow nev er arrives, and who have always something more to gain ere the account may close. Not the fashionable beauty, who trctahles at decay, and blames the bad taste of modern styles that hint at unbecoming changes. Not the student, who has always schemes of discovery and attainments in view, fur which even patriarchal age were insufficient. On these, old age sits awkwardly, as if it were a burden suddenly alighted on their shoulders from some unknown region whither they had been accidentally betrayed. No ; it is noth ing earthly to patent an invexitioa that can remedy the trace of time, or supply a sub stitute for joys "that perish with the using." But it is the high privilege of Christianity f tn nrnlnipi fVio VirwiTrvilvr nntr.A l 1 i hoary head may become a crown of dory and to point to 'the path of the just,' which is as 'the shining light that shineth brighter and brighter unto the perfect day;' wherein old age glides serenely to the gates of the 'celestial city,' and 'to live is Christ,' while 'to die is gain.' If temperance, industry, benevolence, ben efit the health, and reap a present reward, how mucn more tne tranquihzmg influence of peace with God, holding the passioea io sub jection, tegulating the mental powcra, thread ing the charm of contentment over th placid face, and the smile of love around the lip where 'the law of kindness' dwells! Here is no melancholy caricature of life, aping what is gone, for the merry spots of more youthful folly ; but here is the grace that dignifies what is, and commands the respect even of those who know not whence it springs. lhe sani3 God who watered the seed ere the blade sprung to light, and whose care has cherished it to maturity, still gazes with infinite complaceny on the shock of corn fully ripe ; and while he permits it to linger on the stern, it is only that more witnesses of his goodness may gather around, ere he reaps it in triumph for the garner of heaven. He, whose life has been an epistle of Christ, tory of God, and he alone, grows old era'ce fully, and hails time as a friend, who just touches only to remind him that " the nio-h - . is iar spent," and " the day is near at hand." JSr Is there a father in all the land who would not have his children put away the rum glass and repudiate it forever? If the liquor traffic is suffered to exist in our midst as it has for ages, it will be an inevitable com sequence that many of those children, into whose young and guiltless faces the for! pa rent gazes with unmingled delight, will be drunkards many ef the little girls, whos sunny ringlets and brillant eyes lead us to think of sweet little angels lot down from heaven, will, in a few years, be tied te the living corpses of drunken husbands. There are parents now opposing the temperance re form, who, when their old heads ars silvered and their old hearts beating the last feeblp strokes of mortal . lifts, will look upon their children and cry out, " Would to Heaven I could have looked on their young faces with the calm seal of Heath stamped thereon, and seen their little hands clasped on their pulse less breasts, and kid them in the gresn vale with young flowers to bloom o'er their bed, before I had seen them como to this a thou sand times worse than death 1" More Ciubs.

B3BES3 Trading with tho Korth Again. Wo have been no little shoclcd, at secinc the question gravely discussed in sorao of the Southern papers, a3 to the policy of trading with the North agiin, when the bloody war they have waged against the South shall be brought to a close shocked, to see that some are groveling and base enough to argue in favor of the proposition. We had hope that this war would build a walr between the two sections so high that no yankee could ever scale it to come South, or any false hearted Southerner climb over to traffic with those who have proven themselves to be our most implacable, deadly enemies. If such a disposition is manifested so early, what may we see when the bitter strife is ended? The fact alluded to, convinces us of tho ne cessity of our having such a discriminating tariff law against northern manufacturers as will amount to a prohibition of them from Southern raarkets. We are in fwor of even more stringent measures than this, if the disposition totrado with our deadly enemies cannot be thwarted otherwise even to penalties and punish ments, against all such " domestic enemies ' as may linger in our midst. Let them be made to conform to the pure patriotic South ern sentiment in this matter, or else bo shipped to yankca land, where their north ern-trading desires may bo practiced to their fill. Wc arc also in favor of protecting South. ern manufactures, if the manufacturers will sell their products at fair and living rates. But if they continue, as they are now doing, to put their goods at higher prices thin for merly, when they cost them no more to manu facture them, simply becauso of an increased demand for them, they may reap a gol den harvest now, but they will find, after tho blockade has been raised, our merchants, as a consequence, will look to Europe for their goods ; the people finding the European made articles much cheaper, will entire,' neglect our own home manufactures,, and seek to purchase goods that have been imported. And when the current of trade has once been established in Europe, nothing will break it up, and our own manufactures will dwindle into insignificance. The proprietors of South ern manufactories will then see their felly in asking the present exorbitant price?. But were our manufacturers to ask a rea sonable price for their products a price at which the people would be satisfied, the peo ple would soon learn to use Southern made goods; the merchants would order but few others, and the permanency of our manufac 2AVJ2S-DS0PPIKG. p i . correct inst -yvwm oi good-breedinir or lets.
