Reported Confederate triumph in North Carolina.

A report reached this city yesterday afternoon that our forces, after an obstinate fight on Tuesday succeeded in driving the enemy out of the town of Washington, N. C., and that we now hold the place. Washington is in Beaufort county, at the mouth of Tar river, and in the heart of one of the richest agricultural sections of the State of North Carolina. Large quantities of produce are said to be now in store in that region.

Of the particulars of the fight on Tuesday we were unable to learn anything; but the report is so well authenticated that we think there can be no doubt of its correctness.
