--We noticed yesterday that several of the enemy's gunboats had recently paid a visit to Murfreesboro', N. C.
, and that sundry outrages had been committed by them.
From the Raleigh
papers of the 27th we gather the following further particulars.
The State Journal
We have just learned with regret that the Yankees
a few days since found their way up the river to Murfreesboro
', in this State.
We learn that they committed depredations to a considerable extent.
The Wesleyan Institute
, an academy for young ladies, was entered, and the furniture entirely demolished, even to the pianos and the other school apparatus.
The public stores of course were destroyed.
But we think there were not provisions to much amount accumulated at that place.
We expect they were looking for the two steamers which were captured by Captain Elliott
Of course they did not find the boats, as they were then at Franklin
We have learned no further particulars of the incursion.
We learn from a reliable source that three gunboats came up to Murfreesboro', N. C.
, on Friday last, and landed a party who tore up things generally.
They stole 10,000 pounds of bacon belonging to our Commissary Department, gave away a part and destroyed the balance.
They went to the Methodist Female College in the village, broke up the furniture, and took the pianos belonging to the institution aboard and carried them off. The Yankees
prowled about town and had everything their own way. They were still there at last account on Saturday morning.
