The Peninsula.

Captain Webb, of the Teszer, came up with his vessel yesterday morning from Warwick river. He states that an a body of the enemy were attempting to cross that river, Wednesday evening he fired a few shell amongst them. While engaged in thus interrupting them, a shell exploded in the gun and bursted it. He was compelled to come up to replace it with another. He will return immediately this is accomplished

Captain Webb reports that there has been daily skirmishing between our forces and the enemy near Yorktown, and that on Wednesday there was more firing than previously, and there was much more appearance of an engagement than there had been. The movement to cross Warwick river was no doubt with the view of flanking our line of defence; but this stratagem had no doubt attracted the notice of our army.
