From North Carolina we learn that the Yankee troops are constantly leaving Wilmington for South Carolina... The enemy has assembled a powerful army at Vicksburg... We do not believe they could succeed... Another falsehood is very characteristic: it is that the Yankees on the second day carried every thing before them with the bayonet! The Yankees conquering with the bayonet!!! The Lord have mercy on us! So much for Yankee official veracity.
