Yankees drowned.

--We have been informed, says the Lynchburg Virginia, that two cargoes of Yankees were drowned in the Shenandoah river last week. They were a portion of Banks' division. A batch of from eighty to one hundred were attempting to cross on a raft, when they were swept away by the tide, and all of them went down to feed the fish. Another lot of about thirty, as our information runs, attempted the same thing about five miles below the point where they made their first fatal experiment, and they shared the fall of their companions. We have not heard what their object was whether they were a marauding party or the advance of the army, designed to be thrown upon the opposite bank of the river with a view of cooperating in an effort to bridge the stream.
