The enemy's gunboats in the Chowan.

A gentleman who passed through Raleigh on Sunday last, who had been spending some days on the Chowan river and Albemarle Sound, in Bertie county. N. C., represents that an unusual number of gunboats were in the river and in the Sound near to its mouth. He further states that these gunboats had visited all the saw mills on the waters, and had carried off a large quantity of sawed lumber. This lumber, it is conjectured, is to be used in planking up the sides of their boats, so as to protect the men on them from the fire of our sharpshooters.
