The news.

The Norfolk papers report a vigorous bombardment by the Yankee of our forces at Yorktown on Monday without results so far ascertained.

The 16 Yankee prisoners brought to this city yesterday were captured on Saturday last by Confederate cavalry company, between it's Gap and the Shenandoah river, in Shingam county. A number of the Hessian were made to bite the dust, and the survivors were chased by our cavalry to the where several were drowned in attempting to recross.

In latest intelligence from Gen. Jackson's army represented the prospects of a battle between himself and the minions of Banks and as imminent. A knowledge of the character and amount of the forces under leaves but little to apprehend when the conflict of arms shall take place. It is deemed certain that the enemy are in of Harrisonburg and their pickets and to within seventeen miles of Staunton.
