On Sunday last a gunboat of the enemy ascended the Tar river to within one mile of Greenville, Pitt county, where it stopped and transferred some artillery to a flat-boat, which moved up to the town, and without opposition or resistance, the party on board, about eighty in number, took possession — They remained in the town some two hours, during which time they partially destroyed the bridge across Tar river, and retired, carrying off with them since of the citizens of the place. The town is now in possession of our forces, and all is quiet.
