The Yorktown then steamed rapidly along the beach from Newport News to Hampton, sent a boat to each of the vessels, which were apparently deserted by their crews, and steamed toward the three. A small tug-boat, loaded with troops, followed, whilst the Jamestown laid off about a mile distant. Nine o'clock.--The rebel tu. Half-past 4 o'clock P.
