Foster's raid in North Carolina, and the Abduction of negroes.

From all the information we have, the loss of private property in the late Yankee advance from Newborn to Goldsboro must have been very heavy. It is estimated by those who had an opportunity of observing that at least 2,000 negroes accompanied the Yankee forces on their return to Newbern, and many others who were preparing to go, did not succeed in getting off, in consequence of the baste of the enemy in their retreat. Many of the negroes had sends enough to positively refuse accompany them.
