the Port. The news of the recent battles on the Peninsula. We have received all sorts of rumors within the last few days, none of which are positively authentic. One hour we hear through secesh sources that McClellan has been all cut to pieces, himself and forty thousand soldiers, including two Major-Generals, (I would like to know who they can be,) an unlimited number of Brigadiers, and an immense quantity of stores and ordnance captured. Then Gen. Butler gets a note from Flag Officer Farragut, stating that Commodore Davis has received a telegram from General Grant, as follows; "Richmond is ours, with fifty thousand prisoners; so says rumor." These stories have worked the citizens here into a great state of excitement. Secesh believes that we have been defeated, and has consequently been on a tremendous "rampage" for several days. The desperate fortunes of the rebellion and the overwhelming forces and resources of our loyal States. [From the New York Herald.]
