A Yankee Outrage.

Raleigh, N. C., Dec. 1.
--A few nights ago a lot of Yankee soldiers, with blackened faces, visited the residence of a family named Newby, in Perquimans county, consisting of an aged couple and one son. They shot the son dead, abused and beat the old man, and so outraged the feelings of the old lady that she fainted. They then set to work to demolish the furniture, earthenware, glass, &c., and ended by carrying off a number of hogs, cattle, and nearly 100 negroes.
