Edenborough, with eight men of the signal Corps, boarded the Yankee schooner, Julia Baker, off the mouth of the Nansemond river, and, after bringing off her crew of five white men and three negroes, burnt her. She had stores on board valued at $6,000. The negroes el nged to Richard E. Riddick, of Suffolk, Francis Lowe, the captain of the schooner, was much distressed at the event, as a portion of the cargo was his own property.
