Attack on Gloucester Point.

Information has reached this city that a detachment of our cavalry had attacked the Abolition forces congregated at Gloucester Point at day break Sunday morning. The firing was represented to have been very heavy from the commencement of then till near 8 o'clock, when it gradually slackened. The result was not known. The Yankees had some seven hundred runaway negroes at work on the Point, and this was an additional incentive to our men to capture it.
