The War. The accounts which reach as from the various divisions of our army are very meagre, and for two days past the telegraph has preserved a singular reticence. We have had no mails from he Southwest for a week, and the public mind is in a state of suspense as to the exact situation of affairs in that region. It was reported on Saturday that the mortar fleet of the enemy had commenced a vigorous bombardment of our works below the city of New Orleans. At the time of writing this paragraph we have nothing later from Fort Macon, and we are unable to say whether the Yankees were disappointed or not in their anticipations of its speedy fall. Our latest advices from the Peninsula represent that the skirmishing continued, but we have no reason to believe that any general engagement has yet taken place.
