From Newbern and Hatteras Inlet

NEW YORK, March 25. – The steamer George Peabody, from Newbern 22d, via Hatteras Sunday, has arrived here.  She left at the Inlet the Steamers New Brunswick and Louisiana with many of the wounded from the Burnside expedition.

The steamer Spaulding left on Sunday for Fortress Monroe with a part of the rebel prisoners.

The Peabody touched at Hampton Roads, where she saw a large fleet at anchor.

The expedition to Beaufort, North Carolina, had not been reported back, except the capture of the Nashville by our blockading fleet as she was leaving the place on the approach of our troops.

The Peabody returns immediately with stores.
