The Yankees at Fortress Monroe.

The Yankees say that the troops concentrating at Old Point are intended for Charleston. This is the Yankee mode of embodying the fact that they are intended for Richmond. At this season of the year troops will not be sent from the North to Charleston. Besides, if the troops concentrating at Charleston are a portion of Grant's forces, who came round by sea to Old Point, why did they not stop at Charleston on their way? We may expect them up the Peninsula, and will endeavor to give them a suitable welcome.
