Affairs in Eastern North Carolina. A gentleman, who arrived here yesterday from North Carolina, informs us that a report was current there of a rebellion among the runaway negroes on Roanoke Island, that having become restless under the rule 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.
