The Peninsula raid. The excitement with reference to the enemy's raid on the Peninsula has subsided since the facts with reference to the affair have come to be understood. This raid had its origin, we are inclined to believe, in attempts which were made by the Yankees to intercept some parties from this city who had purchased a lot of hogs in Gloucester and King and Queen counties, and were bringing them to Richmond. They were informed upon by some traitor, who went into the enemy's camp, and three gunboats and a company of cavalry were sent up the Pamunxey after them, but they had succeeded in crossing with their hogs, and had them safely away from the river before the boats arrived. About the same time a body of the enemy's cavalry left Williamsburg and came up as far as New Kent, but returned without accomplishing anything.
