False Representation. --A few days since there was deposited to the care of the freight agent of the Danville Railroad, by Colonel Aiken, of South Carolina, a small box, which he desired should be guarded particularly till reaching its destination, as it contained articles of value. In a short while after a man dressed in uniform called and represented that he had been sent for it by Col. A., whereupon it was delivered up, and by him given to a hackman with directions to carry it to No. 7 battery, where he would be in waiting for it.

From Northern Virginia. Hanover Junction, May 22. --Grant commenced swinging his columns around on our right on Friday. Yesterday morning Grant's force occupied Milford Station and Bowling Green. Yesterday evening, about dark, Gen. Wilcox, in front of Spotsylvania Court House, threw forward a portion of his forces, entered the enemy's breastworks, and found them held by a line of skirmishers, Grant's whole army being rapidly in motion on our right flank. This necessitated counter movements on our side and the abandonment of the battle ground in front of Spotsylvania Court House. Grant seems to be manœuvering for a position nearer Richmond. The enemy are reported to have cut loose from Fredericksburg as a base, and to have established depots at Port Royal and Tappahannock. There was some little artillery firing near Chesterfield to-day, but the cause is unexplained. [Second Dispatch.] Hanover Junction, May 23. --The latest information represe
