The taking of Newbern throws Beaufort and Morehead City, distance about 42' miles, into the enemy's possession. We fear, too, that the supplies for Fort Macon will be cut off. It is stated that the garrison have been provisioned for a six months sledge, but we think this doubtful. Beaufort is the capital of Carteret county, has a population of some 2,500, and contains, besides the county buildings, several seminaries of learning and two or three churches. Morehead City is a new settlement, but contains one or two very fine summer resorts.

abandoned. Friday morning the fighting was commenced at early dawn, and continued until half-past 10, when our forces; being almost completely surrounded by an army, outnumbering them at least three to one, splendidly armed, disciplined, equipped, and officered, were compelled to retreat. The retreat, we hear, was well conducted at first and in good order, but finally became a rout, the men throwing away their arms and everything else that could possibly impede their progress. Fort Thompson was the most formidable fortification on the river. It was four miles from Newbern, and mounted 18 heavy guns, two of them rifled 82-pounders. Fort Ellis, three miles from Newbern, mounted eight heavy guns. It was commanded by Capt. Edelin's Company B, First Maryland regiment. Finding that the other fortifications had fallen; Capt.

Their names are given as Prof. Iradella, James Wood, and Frank Heineman. Col. Campbell and Lieut. Col. Haywood, the latter of Raleigh, are known to have been killed. The loss in silled and wounded is believed to be small, but it is thought that a large number were taken prisoners. Col. Z. B. Vance's and Col.
