The profound "anxiety "—felt by Confederate correspondents of the English
papers—as to Sherman's fate has been relieved. He occupied Fayetteville (on Cape Fear River, and about sixty miles from Wilmington) on the 12th March, and is thus again in water communicAtion with the Government. On the same day Generhl Bragg evacuated Kingston, North Carolina, which was occupied-by General Schofield. It seems to be expected that the army of General Bragg and the army of General Hardee will unite under General Johnston or Lee, and try to defend Weldon and the line of the Roanoake River in North Carolina, and if defeated then will fall back upon the army in Virginia. On the 22nd March Sherman was moving on Goldsborough, and Lee said to be in command at Raleigh. General Sheridan, with his small force, after marching through Charlottesville, has done immense damage to the canal communication round Richmond, but is not in any force sufficient to fight. He has, however, pus'lltd back the Confederate troops as far as Lynchburg, and shown their exceeding weakness on that side of Richmond.
