Vice President Stephens did not go to Fortress Monroe, as rumored, but went down in the Confederate States steamer Torpedo as far as Newport News, off which the vessel lay until a Yankee truce boat came up, bringing Major Ludlow, the Federal Commissioner. What the result of the dispatches interchanged was, or what was their purport, nobody outside of official circles knows. The Vice President started back Monday morning and reached here yesterday evening, having stopped at Claremont Monday night.
