Newport News

--The following is all we find in the Norfolk Herald, of yesterday, relative to the evacuation of Newport News:

‘ As there seems to be some misapprehension as to the movements of the enemy at this place recently, we state, upon information not to be doubted, that two Boston steamers, one of them recognized as the S. P. Whitney, came in from sea on Sunday and proceeded up to Newport News. During the night the troops on shore were busy at work embarking on board the steamers, with their baggage, and early on Monday morning they got under way and steamed down the Capes, with their decks crowded with troops, and proceeded to sea.
