Eastern North Carolina.

The latest information which reaches us from the coast of North Carolina dispels every doubt teat the enemy are concentrating in heavy force, with a view to strike a blow at the main line of railway on nearing Richmond with the for South. It is stated that their forces at Newborn and Moore head City, on the coast, number from 50,000 to 70,000 and that they are evidently preparing for a forward movement. It is also represented that a powerful fleet is now in rendezvous at Morehead City, with a view to an early naval attack upon Wilmington. It is believed that a simultaneous movement will be made upon Weldon or some other supposed accessible point on the great Southern railway. The North Carolina papers indicate a manifest uneasiness not only for Wilmington and the country east of Raleigh, but even for the safety of the capital itself.
