End of the last Raid into North Carolina.

The Yankee columns which marched into North Carolina have retired. The two which went over North Carolina soil went back to Newbern, and the party that marched into the State from Suffolk, composed of Speare's and Dodge's cavalry, reached Suffolk Sunday forenoon about 10 o'clock, and at 8 P. M. took up their line of march for Norfolk. A battery of eight pieces, known as Howard's Regular U. S. Artillery, which also accompanied the expedition, proceeded to Murfreesboro', whence it will be shipped to Newbern, N. C. The expedition was under the command of Colonel Spears, and the man freely acknowledged in Suffolk that the expedition was a complete failure.
