le of self-constituted masters, they stole upon the Yankees while at dinner and put several of them to death; and that as soon as the soldiers were able to recover from the suddenness of the attack, they rallied and commenced an indiscriminate slaughter of the negroes, which resulted in their almost total extermination. There seems to be some ground for believing this report for we have information from a high military source that the negroes in the neighborhood of Roanoke Island are leaving by every opportunity and endeavoring to make their way to our lines. We also learn that heavy cannonading was heard at Goldsboro', N. C., on Monday afternoon, in the direction of Newbern. It commenced at 3 o'clock, and continued until 9 o'clock P. M. Since there is no probability that the Yankees would fire such an extensive salute in honor of the anniversary of the battle of Manassas, the impression prevailed that the enemy was engaged in shelling some defenceless point in that vicinity.
