War News.

--The most important news received yesterday related to the evacuation of Newport News by the Federal troops. This is probably authentic. Our correspondence states that steamers were removing troops from that place on Sunday. Regarding the movements of our own army on the Peninsula, we have some information, which we do not deem it prudent to publish.

Gen. Wise's Brigade is at White Sulphur Springs, and comfortably quartered in that pleasant locality. Capt., O. Jennings Wise, of the Richmond Blues, arrived here yesterday, and reports the troops in good health.

Nothing of interest has transpired in the neighborhood of Alexandria.
