    Wilmington, August 4--
    On Thursday morning, the volunteers from Duplin County consisting of 80 able bodied men, under 
    the command of Capt. Gusson, embarked from this place for Smithville. In compliment to their
    brothers in arms, Callender's volunteers paraded, and at the place of embarkation, saluted them 
    on their departure. A return was made by sailing-master Levy, and mutual cheerings succeeded.
