THREATENED BET ALIA.TION.
The only incident ; of note from the new scene
of warlike operations yesterday was a visit from
Gen. Patvick, one of the abolition commanders,
with sealed despatches to the officer now com
manding our forces at Fredericksburg. The
purport of these &watches is supposed to be a
demand for the surrender of the city—a demand
which, of course, will, not be granted. The
result of the matter, whatever it may be, had
net transpired up to the time of , the departure
of the train for Bichniond at half t , two
o'clock. No, telegraphie conaninnication was
received from Fredericksburg during the day,:
after 9A. N., whatever. It, is prommed that
the :removal of the office is one among the
preparations for an attack; all of whickare now
said to have been consummated,
Since the above wee written, we have received
telegrapbleinformation from Fredericksbmg.
The perport of the despatches referred to •was,
as surmised, a peremptoky 'demand for the stir
reoder of the toini.• ' The demand was as per
emptorily refused by General Lee, who is in
command of our troops. TThe alternative offered
in the Yankee order was that the town would
be shelled at nine o'olock.this (Saturday) morn
ing. This fate the city prepared to meet.
The Fredericksburg /Ana of Friday evening

river was covered with vessels of all sixes and
kinds, mainly of the transport order. That

opinion entertained by many. Enough of the'

the proximity is intensely interesting.
;Although the enemy is undoubtedly 'in large
force in front of Frederickiburg, there are in
dications third the great battle is not to come
off in that vicinity. The most obvious of
these indications is that the enemy his not
already struck a blow at this point; before any
✓forcements could have possibly arrived.
T ere are only two suppositions 'on which this
i tion can be accounted for, either that the
raPid movements on our aide have dleconcerted
the plans of Burnside, or that his demonstra-
Ulm at Fredericksburg is really a feint.
We learn that on Tuesday and Wednesday
the Potomac river was covered with vessels of

TIM DEMON OR NORM( CAROLINA.
The recent incursion of the Yankees under
Gen. Foster into the interior of North Carolina,
seems to have found a clear road, and has made
it, painfully apparent that but little has been
done to defend this country. We learn that'
since this event such sense of insecurity has
pervaded the minds of the people of Eastern
North Carolina, that they are now taking mea
spree to remove their families and negroes to
It is much' to be regretted that the govern
ment did not take active steps to secure the
vast surplus of supplies , in North Carolina, now
so closely threatened by the enemy.
• The valley of the Roanoke is said to be equal
to any , corn growing country in the world.
Daring the past summer the government ob
tained as many as BMW hundred thousand
bushehi of coin from the plantations on the
immediate banks of the river, within a distance
of lees than forty miles ; and it is no exaggera
tion to say that more than that quantity, even
to the extent of one million - bushels of corn,
might be obtained therefrom the ensuing win

inroads of the enemy.

In their recent raid into the Eastern portions
of North Carolina the Yankees committed the
most cerrible atrocities ; and it is not to be

struck into their minds by recent events, and
with but little assurance of, protection in the

flying in dismay. The most fertile districts of
the South are passing from us, one by one, and
the government will have reason to regret the
blind and negligent policy of surrendering those
districts of the country to the enemy, which are

THE LATE offiusini 'LE THE EEBEL WiE. DEPARTMENT
, f In the Richmohd Whig of Wednesday ap
peared the following explanatory remarks
respecting the resignation of the late Secretary
of War :
'We see no impropriety in gratifying the nat
ural curiosity of the public so far as to state
that the immediate cause of his resignation as
Sacretar3r , of War,, was the performance of an
act by the President which implied a belief that
that he (Glen. B.) might he influenced by his
personal relations in the discharge of his official
duties. We think that all who know General
Randolph will conclude that he would be no
more swayed by such an _influence than the
most best and conscientious men are liable
'ln the same paper of Thursday we find the
following modification of the above remarks.
:Our attention. has been called to . the fact,
that the brief note in yesterday's Whig, ; 118 to
the cause of General Randolph's resipation,
may be misinterpreted by the inadvertent rea
der, and produce the Impression. that the mat
h* referred to was the appointment of his own
relatives to office by the Secretary. We did
not desire to be so understood, nor was there
the least ground for dfssatisfaction on that
sone. The inference to-be deduced' from the
occurrence to which we referred was. that, in
the President's opinion, the Secretary could
not consider fairly end impartially the' claims
of an applittant for office with whom his rela
tions were unfriendly. That was the explana

jUstifted in believing to be correctly, informed.
Bat we have reason to believe that the trus
cense of the resignatiOn was of amore general
character ; that the Secretary felt himself so
fettered and hampered in his office as to be
forced to the conclusion that he could to more
useful in some other service: He _therefore re
signed, and reported for duty in the field. This,
we believe, is the true version of the affair.

is the residence of secessionists of the most
malignant character. About a year ago they

the American colors should never float in that
Colonel Gray immediately issued an order
requiring the citizens of Prestonville to make a

pole in place of the rebel ensign, and have it

9th of November The inhabitants waited
upon the Colonel in a body ,entreating him to

was inexorable. They then besought him to
furnish them with a flag for the purpose. His
reply was terse and emphatic
"Never. Yon tore down the American flag,
and by the living God you shall replace it. If
yen do it voluntarily all will be well ; 'but if
not I will drive you into an enclosure together
and compel you to make the flag."
