Affairs in Eastern North Carolina. A gentleman, who arrived here yesterday from North Carolina, informs us that a report was current there of a rebellion among the runaway negroes on Roanoke Island, that having become restless under the rule of self-constituted masters, they stole upon the Yankees while at dinner and put several of them to death; and that as soon as the soldiers were able to recover from the suddenness of the attack, they rallied and commenced an indiscriminate slaughter of the negroes, which resulted in their almost total extermination. There seems to be some ground for believing this report for we have information from a high military source that the negroes in the neighborhood of Roanoke Island are leaving by every opportunity and endeavoring to make their way to our lines. We also learn that heavy cannonading was heard at Goldsboro', N. C., on Monday afternoon, in the direction of Newbern. It commenced at 3 o'clock, and continued until 9 o'clock P. M.

Orders to report. We understand that orders have been issued for all paroled prisoners taken at Roanoke Island and elsewhere to report their names, so that they may be included in the exchange lately agreed on between the Confederate and Lincoln Governments.

Under sentence of death. --A soldier named Patrick McGowan, formerly belonging to Company E, 59th Virginia regiment, Captain Gustavus A. Wallace, is now confined in Castle Thunder under sentence of death, a court-martial having condemned him to be shot for desertion. It appears that McGowan was not taken prisoner at Roanoke Island, and that after that event, a majority of his comrades being necessarily compelled to take no part in the war on account of their parole, he entered another company as a substitute, and had been in several actions, that of the 30th of August, at Manassas, included, when he left his comrades and came to Richmond. Here he was apprehended, tried, and condemned.

Staunton, Va., Sept. 26th, 1862.
Arrival of prisoners. --The Central cars yesterday brought to this city nine officers and four hundred and twenty privates of the Yankee army, captured near Shepherdstown, Va., a few days since, when Burnside's division attempted to cross the Potomac at that point and were so mercilessly cut up by Stonewall Jackson's men. We could not learn the names of the officers, though they and the men were part of those who, with 20,000 others, under Burnside, participated in the attack on, and capture of, our forces at Roanoke Island. Included in this number were some of Hawkins's Zouaves. The above party will be sent home in a day or two--as soon as descriptive lists can be made out so as to identify them hereafter should they violate their parole.
