From the Peninsula.

The report in relation to the landing of the enemy in large force at Yorktown was again repeated yesterday, and seemed to be confirmed by scouts who came in from that direction. But, on the other hand, a citizen who reached the city yesterday from the vicinity of Yorktown states that they were embarking. A few days will probably develop their movements. We learn from a reliable source that a barge load of Yankees, who crossed the river above Yorktown, were captured by our forces on the other side of the river.
