Affairs below Richmond.

Although some persons were under the impression that they heard heavy firing down the river yesterday morning, we are quite safe in asserting that nothing has lately occurred to break the monotony of events in that direction. The portion of McClellan's army that was sent to the South side of the river continues to plunder the inhabitants without molestation, but we hear nothing further of an advance towards Richmond or Petersburg.--The ‘"seat of war"’ has been suddenly transferred to a distance from the capital, and meanwhile the Yankee gunboats seem to be in no hurry to test the strength of our batteries at Drury's Bluff.
