From Buenos Ayres. --The latest intelligence from that place is up to the 14th of February. The news of the terrible massacre at San Juan, previously reported, is confirmed. The number of men butchered in cold blood after the capture of that place is given at six hundred. At Buenos Ayres the most terrible excitement prevailed in consequence, and revenge was the sentiment of all parties.

Dr. Cohoon, a wealthy citizen of Elizabeth City, is now at Suffolk, a refuges. He remained there until the enemy had possession of Elizab
