The second advance of the enemy in North Carolina.
The second advance of the Yankees
in North Carolina
has resulted as the first did, in their repulse.
The skirmish took place below Kinston
, on Friday.
The enemy, it is said, lost several killed and wounded, but it is not known how many.
The enemy on Saturday--in what force it is not known — were at White Oak river
, on the Onslow
line, below Trenton
, and about 21 or 22 miles from Newbern
There are none known to be between Trenton
The entire force at Newbern
is thought to be thirteen or fourteen regiments, probably not more than 5,000 to 6,000 effective men. We hardly think that an advance with such a force is much to be treaded.
