From Suffolk --At Suffolk everything has been quiet since the late fight. The Yankee forces are again at their camping ground at Bernard's Mill, and their pickets are at Jericho Run. The negro forces engaged and scattered by Ransom, did not halt in their retreat until they reached Portsmouth, and have not returned. In their retreat they burned the mill of Rev. A. R. Bernard, which was the main dependence of its owner for the support of a large family. No Yankee soldier has ventured to show his face to Suffolk since the thrashing Runsom's forces gave the negro troops. All who saw the negro forces in their retreat from Suffolk, are now satisfied that they will never make fighting soldiers. The officers, who were all whites, far outran their negro comrades.
