Affairs at Williamsburg.

A lady from Williamsburg succeeded in escaping and reaching this city a day or two since. She had received a letter informing her that her husband was dying in Richmond and with the letter in her hand visited the office of the ‘"Military Governor"’ of Williamsburg to obtain a pass to leave the Federal lines. The official refused, with some compliments to the lady to gross as to be insulting. A gentleman who escorted her to the office saved her further by leading her from the wretches presence. She then ran the blockade and arrived in the safety. She states that since the cavalry dash into Williamsburg the inhabitants of that city much more rigidly dealt with by the Federal. The poor people are suffering greatly and their condition will soon be to the extreme.
