A steamer Advance, belonging to the State of North Carolina, has just made her third trip into Wilmington from 
Bermuda. There is not impropriety in mentioning the fact, as we learn she was chased and fired at by the blockaders, 
but got in safely. It is supposed that besides her usual cargo of clothes, blankets and shoes for the North Carolina 
soldiers, she has brought many thousand pairs of cotton and wool cards, to be sold to the people of the State at cost 
and charges. The sagacity of our Governor and Legislature in thus providing for both soldiers and people, at a probable 
saving of millions of dollars in the cost, is worthy of praise   -Fayetteville Observer
