--On Saturday of last week a party of Yankees went to Windsor, in Bertie county, N. C., in boats, while another party landed on the Roanoke river, about eight miles below, and marched on the town, where they made a junction with those that went up in boats. They burnt up some meat and destroyed some salt in Windsor, and captured and carried off the Rev. Cyrus Waiters, of the Episcopal Church, also Dr. Turner Wilson, and L. S. Webb, Cashier of the Bank, and some others. They attacked Capt. Bowers's camp, and routed the small force there, but Capt. B. being reinforced by a small cavalry force, after some sharp firing the Yankees retired.
