The North Carolina coast.

By an arrival at Norfolk on Thursday evening, everything is reported quiet at Roanoke Island. The Confederate fleet that went down to Hatteras on Monday last, failed to entice the Federals out from their batteries, though two days were occupied in the effort to get a fight. The Norfolk Day Book reports that the Federals are preparing to make an attack on Roanoke Island, and for that purpose are throwing large reinforcements into Hatteras, where General Mansfield is in command.
