Depredations of the Yankees.

The driver of the mail stage between this city and Tappahannock, started out from here on Friday morning, but returned on the same evening, bringing the report that the enemy had come up the Pamunkey in gunboats as far as Walkerton, in King and Queen, and Aylett's in King William. At Walkerton they burned the flouring mill, and one or two other buildings, and at Aylett's it is stated they destroyed a flouring mill, and eight or ten other houses. Besides, all the public stores at the two points were destroyed or carried off.--These acts of vandalism were committed on Friday morning.
