Passengers who arrived last night by the York River road report that the Yankees, up to Thursday night, were still engaged in plundering and burning in King and Queen county. The statements of the burning of the Court House is repeated. There is also a body of Yankees in King William. The fleet that went up the Mattaponi river consisted of three gunboats and seven trans ports. They landed the troops at Shepherd's Wharf, in King and Queen. The infantry support remained at Centreville, while the cavalry was sent out on its mission of destruction.
