Not Damaged.

--The late rise in the river did no damage to any of the bridges spanning James river at this place. The water at one time was nearly up to the flooring of Mayo's bridge, but to have motion quite up and taken off that structure an unwitting prisoner on its seething and boiling b m it would have had to accomplish a feat much greater than was perfected by similar means in 1847. But little timber was floated oil the bank between the Dock and river, and this is to be wondered at when we consider how thoroughly it was exposed to the action of the waves. We heard a rumor that the banks of the Canal had been washed away in several places, but cannot vouch for the accuracy of the report. A great deal of live stock, in the shape of rate, were drowned in the lower part of the city.
