The situation of affairs on the south side of James river is unchanged. The Yankees still occupy their entrenchments, extending across the country from the James to the Appomattox river, in the neighborhood of Bermuda Hundreds, and nothing of importance has occurred since the battle of Monday last. Here they will doubtless be held in check until such time as they shall decide upon some other plan of operations against Richmond. Their boasted siege and occupation of Petersburg has not yet taken place, and, altogether, Beast Butler has thus far found the Southside quite as hard a road to travel as McClellan did the route by way of the Peninsula. The only difference is that the plans of the first named doughty General have been discomfited much more speedily than were those of the latter.

Although the public desire for news from the other side of James river is intense, it is a matter of much difficulty to obtain any definite accounts from that quarter, notwithstanding its proximity to the capital.--We know that the Yankees, under a pressure of adverse circumstances, have abandoned the line of the Petersburg Railroad, and that important route is now entirely in our possession. There was heavy skirmishing yesterday in the direction of Port Walthall, in which a few of our men were wounded. The Yankee gunboats meanwhile were engaged in shelling the woods. This may be the precursor of another general engagement, and the present lull in affairs may soon be broken by the roar of cannon and the crash of musketry.

Sheridan's Yankee cavalry force below Richmond have crossed the Chickahominy at Bottom's bridge, and it was rumored last evening that they were again advancing towards Richmond on some point on the Central Railroad. We could get no confirmation of this report.

From Northern Virginia.

Passengers by the Fredericksburg train last evening brought a report that a severe engagement took place yesterday morning on the right wing of Gen Lee's army, near Massaponax church, and that the enemy were twice handsomely repulsed by our forces under Ewell.

No official information was received at headquarters here last night, of the reported engagement, but it was generally credited. The scene of the fight is located at Stanard's Mill, about sixteen miles from Fredericksburg.

The victory in the Valley.

Later advices from the Valley of Virginia make the victory of General Breckinridge over Sigel even more complete than first accounts represented it. Gen. Breckinridge, in celerity of movement, has proved himself a worthy successor of Jackson. He marches rapidly over a wide extent of country, while the enemy in detail, drives him back, and entirely disconcerts his plans.

Gunboats in the Rappahannock.

Three of the enemy's gunboats appeared off Fort Lowry, in the Rappahannock river about six miles below Tappahannock, on Tuesday, and more were reported coming up the river.
