( f We present a brief sketch of the field of operations to which the effort* of the Burnside i Expedition are now directed. ROAKOKR IBLA5D. ThiiJ is about fifty miles up Pamlico Sound, J twelve milej long and three miles wide. Koa- ! noke Island is a position which if valuable to us. commanding as it does the Currituck Sound, which opens into the Albemarle. Cur- j rituck is about fifty miles Ions, ten miles wide, and is navigable for vessels drawing ten feet of water. Owing to the natural breakwater ' whieh protects a larjre portion of the coasts of North Carolina and Virginia, the water if as ' placid as a lake, and easily navigated. Albemarle Sound extends in a westerly direction *h )Ut aixtv miles: it ia from four to fif teen miles in width, and though in many parts quite shoal, is sufficiently deep to admit of the passage of vessels of ten feet of water. The Pasquotank river, which has its rise in the Dismal Swamp, flows into this sound. A canal, called the DismM Swamp Canal, connects this river with Diummond Lake in Dismal Swamp. This lake is about thirty miles in length, and from ten to twelve miles in breadth. When full the surface of the lake is twenty-one feet above tide water. The Jericho Canal connects the lake with Sufflk, which is situated on th? Xansemond river and on the Portsmouth and Hoanoke Riilroad. It is eighty miles southeast of Richmond, and twenty miles from Hampton Roads. Nan^smond river enters Hampton Roads, and is navigable for vessels of ten feetef water from Suffolk. W1LI?0!?, w. c., is one hu'idred and fifty rnitos from the mouth ef R anoke riv?*r, which, in ccnsequeuce of the obstruction of a fall, is the limit to steamboat navigation. y> eldon is a point of considerable strategy importance. Foor rai'roads meet there, viz : The Wilmington and Weldon, the Seaboard and Roanoke, the Gaston and Kaleigh. and the Petersburg road. The first of the roads ia one hondred and sixty-two miles in length, and rum southeasterly*to Wilmington, inttrs?ctin? Goldsborough, on the Nease rirer. The se?ond is eighty miles long, and runs to Portsmouth, Virginia The third is ninaty-seven miles long, and runs nortneasterly to the capital of North Carolina. The fourth is otherwise known as the " Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac, Richmond and Petersburg, and Petersburg railways." By this route Richmond is one hundred and eighty-six miles from Weldon; Petersburg, Virginia, is one hundred and sixty-four miles distant. Weldon seems peculiarly situated for an attack It is ea?y of access, and when gained can be as formidably intrenohed as ia Manassas. It is not farfrom Richmond, and, furthermore, the seizure of this point would seriously incommode the Rebels at Richmond an<? Ma- j aaav. NEWBBR.V, K. C. Newborn is on the Neuse river?pronounced as if spelled Nuss?which-, next to Cape Feer, is the largest navigable stream in North Carolina. It is navigable for steamboat* from its mouth, which is at the lower j>art of Pamlico Sound, in Waynesberough, X C , a distance of more than 100 miles. Goldsboroagh, near Waynesborouijh. on the river ia a point at which the railroads from Wilmington on the Cape Fear, and from Newbern on the Neuse risers converge. a AsnixoTos, n. c. Washington is in Beaufort county, on the left bank ot the Tar river, at the head of Pamlico river The latter is navigable to Washington for boats drawing eight feet of water. The river, which is a continuation of Pamlico river, is navigable for boats with less than eight feet of water to Tarboro. 1 BMZABKTH CITT. Elizabeth City, one of the towns destroyed ' by the Confederates, is the county seat of Pas- | quotank county, North Carolina, on the right bank of the Pasquotank river, about twenty miles from its mouth, and fifty miles south of Norfolk, Va. It was one of the most consider- * able towns in the noTtheast section of the State. J It contained two banks, three newspaper offices ' and several churches, and had a population of < about 2.^00- Small vessels ascended the river t<> the plaoe. and it communicates with Nor- , folk by means of the river and the Dismal < Swamp canal. Lumber, rosin and pitch were j the chief exports. 1 BDBNTOX. The village of Edenton, also reported as de- ? troyed. is the countv town of Chowan county. 1 and is situated at the head of Edenton bay, ' which ocens into Albemarle Sound, a little be low the month of Chowaa river, about 150 miles east from Raleigh, and about 75 miles southwest of Norfolk, Va. It was a beautiful town, containing many handsome residences, besides a c?art-bouse. bank, a newspaper office and several churches It was one of the principal towns of the seaboard. and carried on a considerable trade by the navigation of the sound. The population was about 2,000. It was oettled in 1716. Richmond Left ix Darkness ?Tf add to the chapter of horrors at Richmond, ao graph- l ically 1 escribed by the Examiner, that city is | oon to be left, it appears, in pitchy darkness after sunset. 6o writes a correspondent of the Memphis Appeal. A rare opportunity for the bands of "plugs," who are assaulting whit* < and black, gentle and vulgar, male and female, ? : tr i_ _ ?? wim equai impuuujr. umen u me condition of Richmond before it has been capitalised three quarters of a year, what would it become after a decade or a century ? The Confederate States have coal to make gaj; but the manufacture of tiles for covering retortshad never been naturalised within their limits. An experiment to make them ia about 1 to be tried somewhere in South Carolina; but the prospects are very gloomy. Candles might be resorted to, it they were to be had; but the same correspondent avers that there are not suflj ?icr<t to last a fortaight. The supply of oil hI*<> given out; for as last as made It is i reauired lor the lubrication of machinery. Tbii is a \ery disagreeable state of things, brought about by the Xr rth, of oourse, which 1 possessed a monopoly of tile-making while "the old accuried Inion" lasted. It would be greatly improved by the independence of the Confederate States, for then the supply of tiles might, under a system of free trade, come " *? a a ,i irom i.urure?inree icousnna mues iartoer away than before How to light up the Confederate capital will mod be an interesting question. Gas there will be note; oil springs have not been discovered in rebeldom; machinery has a prior lien on the hog; there is another use t? be made of alcohol, considering the advancing { rices of ardent spirits at the South. But North Carolina has still a plentiful supply of pitch, tar, resin, and other inflammables, illumination with which wonld be better than Egyptian darkness at the dead ef winter. It strikes of that an article on the inefficiency of the Lincoln blockade wonld come in very 1 well about theee days. i Nor Altogether at Faclt ?The 4th New i Hampshire regiment has just completed a Leavy i<)b of shovelling at Port Royal. A few days met. on inspection, Col. hippie discovered one of the sotaien' runs not in the best order.

The following resolutions were adopted : ^ ' That this meeting is of opinion that the rebel agents, Mason and Slidell, now on their c ray from America to England, are utterly un- j worthy the moral sympathies of the working :lasses of this country, inasmuch as they hold ( property in slaves, and are the svowed agents }f a tyranical faction now in rebellion against , the republic in America, and are the sworn tnemiea against the social and politioal rights i >f fViA wnvkinn alnaaaa r\f *11 +wi as J + ?uo Tfviaiu^ wi"mwui ui an uuuuuioo.
