Steamship city of Richmond.

--This is one of the vessels of the ‘"Union"’ Company's line, which has for some years been plying between Philadelphia and Richmond, to the mutual advantage of both sections, we doubt not. But old relations are now broken up; citizens of Philadelphia pursue Virginians through their streets and threaten to swing them up like felons, and Virginians must give blow for blow. The steamer above named reached her wharf in this city on Friday evening, and as she is now in the custody of Virginia troops, it will probably be a long time before she gets back to her late owners in Philadelphia. She lays near the Yorktown and Jamestown, the three making a very good list of prizes for the first week of open hostilities.
