The regiment wasent and the two remaining rifle pieces of Pendleton's battery. The Yankees are now six miles this side of Romney, and abodt six or seven thousand strong. From Tybee and Green Islands. We take the following from the Savannah News, of the 12th inst.: The six Federal vessels at Tybee, reported yesterday, remained in the same position all day Tuesday and Wednesday. They seem to be doing nothing. Yesterday morning a squad of about forty, headed by an officer, visited Mr. King's pla
