The Yankees in Gloucester.

We learn from Acting Adjutant Pader, of the 5th Virginia cavalry, who was in Gloucester on Monday last, that on Tuesday the Yankees appeared in some force — artillery, cavalry, and infantry — at the Court House and at Claysor's tan-yard. About 300 in two separate made their way to Gloucester Point. The first lot went down on Tuesday, crossing at Aylett's, in King William, where they captured and paroled a soldier named Saunders. The second party crossed at Walkerton and destroyed a lot of commissary stores and wagons. They took along only horses and such negroes as expressed a desire to go with them — At Carlton's store in King and Queen, they captured Lieut. Wm. C. Nunn and private Clondis, of the King and Queen cavalry.--They carried Nunn off with them and paroled Clondis. Adjutant Puller and a comrade captured, when about one mile and a half from King William Court-House, two negroes belonging to John Pollard, who mistook them for Yankees, and told them they had delivered up their master's horses to the enemy. They were lodged in the county jail. The Yankees had sent them out as spies.

On Monday a regiment of Yankee cavalry mustered at Aylett's, and another at the Court-House. Both were under Col. Kilpatrick, commanding the brigade. The troops came down to Mantua on Friday, on the Mattaponi, to cross, but two of our pickets had removed the boat. Adjutant Puller has no doubt but that the cavalry who made their way to Gloucester Point are the same engaged in the recent raid about Richmond. He saw them once or twice, and the people said the Yankees had boasted of being in sight of Richmond. They were followed by negroes riding stolen horses.
