A correspondent of the Petersburg Express, writing from Suffolk, Va., says,--"It is painful to learn that
all along the coast of North Carolina there are persons who welcome the invaders and encourage them in their
wicked raids. Until we can put an end to such encouragement, we shall have trouble at every point where the
enemy can possibly gain a footing."
It is possible that here and there in North Carolina a traitor may be found, we are sorry to say; but
Virginians should not trouble themselves specially about that, since there are ten such in Virginia for
every one in North Carolina. The Peninsula, especially, so near to this Suffolk writer, has been full of
them, as all our troops know who have served there. Let not this Virginia pot call our kettle black.
