Yankees drowned. --We have been informed, says the Lynchburg Virginia, that two cargoes of Yankees were drowned in the Shenandoah river last week. They were a portion of Banks' division. A batch of from eighty to one hundred were attempting to cross on a raft, when they were swept away by the tide, and all of them went down to feed the fish. Another lot of about thirty, as our information runs, attempted the same thing about five miles below the point where they made their first fatal experiment, and they shared the fall of their companions. We have not heard what their object was whether they were a marauding party or the advance of the army, designed to be thrown upon the opposite bank of the river with a view of cooperating in an effort to bridge the stream.
The news. The Norfolk papers report a vigorous bombardment by the Yankee of our forces at Yorktown on Monday without results so far ascertained. The 16 Yankee prisoners brought to this city yesterday were captured on Saturday last by Confederate cavalry company, between it's Gap and the Shenandoah river, in Shingam county. A number of the Hessian were made to bite the dust, and the survivors were chased by our cavalry to the where several were drowned in attempting to recross. In latest intelligence from Gen. Jackson's army represented the prospects of a battle between himself and the minions of Banks and as imminent. A knowledge of the character and amount of the forces under leaves but little to apprehend when the conflict of arms shall take place. It is deemed certain that the enemy are in of Harrisonburg and their pickets and to within seventeen miles of Staunton.
