The War news.
Very little is known of the operations of our two armies now in the vicinity of Richmond
It is stated that the right flank of the enemy's army is being extended in the fraction, and is already near, Hanover Court-House.
On Saturday a body of their cavalry, supposed to number three hundred, advanced to the neighborhood of Old Church, to Hanover county
, about fifteen miles from the city, and succeeded in capturing some forty or fifty broken-down horses and mules.
No other loss was sustained.
On the river all is quiet, the enemy's gunboats hesitating to attack our batteries that so successfully resisted him on Thursday last.
Our telegraphic column conveys the intelligence of the capture of a portion of the Motley
's crew, and the killing of eight others.--This evinces a watchfulness upon the part of our pickets, and that the enemy is exceedingly cautious in his advance on Richmond
The news from the Southwest
is interesting, though it is probable that the spade policy is being pursued by the Federal
force in front of Corluth.
The reader is referred to the news under the telegraphic head for the most interesting information received up to 11 o'clock last night.
