The Yankees advancing

The Yankees yesterday were at Tunstall's Station in considerable force, mostly cavalry. Their infantry was no doubt advancing in the fear ready to support them. Their force is variously estimated at from 10 to 25,000 men Opinions are much divided as to the object of this expedition. Some suppose the design is actually to attack the city; but to us, that seems preposterous. Others think with more appearance of probability, that it is intended merely to keep up an excitement and draw off men from Lee's army. It appears to us that we have force sufficient not only to defeat, but to capture the whole of their army, should it venture near enough.
