--Refugees from North Carolina, and even from Norfolk, have been arriving in this city for several days past in considerable numbers. On Sunday, some six or eight wagons, filled with negroes and their effects, belonging to citizens of Edenton, who have been compelled to flee for safety from that place, reached Blandford. We presume there must have been at least fifty negroes with these wagons. We have also seen and conversed with several refugees from Elizabeth City and other points on the coast of North Carolina.--Petersburg Express.
