Goldsboro' July 27.-- Gov. Vance. The following dispatch just received here, at half past 10 o'clock this morning, from Maj. Venable, at Rocky Mount:

Rocky Mount, July 27--Reliable news from Col. Martin, at Hamilton, represents that the Yankees are advancing from both Plymouth and Washington, their destination no doubt being Weldon via Fort Branch. Their force is said to be three thousand, from Plymouth, and four pieces artillery. The force from Washington not known.

The enemy certainly Advanced

Dr. Covey, Medical Director for North Carolina, has kindly placed at our disposal the following dispatch from Dr. Scott, the Surgeon in charge of the hospital stores at Tarboro'

Wilson, July 27
--Medical Director D. N. CoveyShall I remove the hospital stores, &c. The enemy are advancing in force from Plymouth and Washington.

From this and the dispatch to Gov. Vance there is but little room to doubt but the enemy are advancing in some force, and we have but little doubt but they will be met and driven back.
