From North Carolina.

--The Raleigh Conservative gives the following result of the Yankee Roanoke expedition:

‘ We saw an intelligent gentleman yesterday who left Fort Branch, on the Roanoke, on Monday last. He informs us that the engagement had with the Yankees on the occasion of their late advance was a very small affair, not a man being killed on either side and none seriously wounded. Colonel Hinton and five or six men were taken by the Yankees, while eight of the Federal were taken by our boys. Two of the Yankee gunboats were blown up in the river by torpedoes Colonel Whitford's arm was broken, but it was thought there was no danger of his losing it.
