Eastern North Carolina.

The news from Eastern North-Carolina is pretty much the same that has been laid before our readers for the last two or three days and gives assurance that the enemy is preparing for an attack on Wellington, and perhaps Goldsboro'. The force at Newborn is variously estimated; some persons placing it as high as 75,000, and others as low as 35,000. There are two iron-clads in Beaufort harbor--one, the Passaic, looking badly, with two feet of water in her at last accounts. On Wednesday last there were about 10,000 Federal troops at Moorhead City, and more were expected.

A negro who went off with the Yankees when they made their raid on Riddleton has returned to that point from Newbern. He represents things in a most horrible condition for the negro at Newbern, and begs his master to take him to the mountains as he does not desire to fell into the hands of the Yankees again.
