Affairs on the Peninsula.

While there is every reason to apprehend the early occurrence of important events on the Peninsula, there has been nothing to contain the exciting report of a great battle in of Yorktown. Indeed, we have very and reliable advices from that immediate vicinity, which represent that not a gun has been fired, though there is unusual activity and military preparations. Nothing was known of the skirmish near Newport News on Monday, in which a portion of Gen. Laws's command was engaged; but the lost having been officially communicated by Gen. Magruder, there can be no doubt that something occurred in that locality, which promised to the inference of a general battle in the Peninsula.
