War news.

We present our readers this morning with very little news of this character. We had yesterday morning a report of another raid on the Peninsula, which, however, dwindled considerably as the day wore away, and finally exploded on the arrival of the York River cars.

No additional news has been received from Plymouth, with the exception of the number of killed and wounded in Kemper's brigade and in the 38th Virginia battalion of artillery. The loss in the former was five killed and forty-five wounded; the latter four killed and twenty-seven wounded.--Quiet prevailed there on Saturday, when Adjutant Thomas Lewis, of the 38th battalion of Virginia artillery left in charge of Gen. Wessell and staff, together with other Yankee officers, captured at that post.

The following is a list of the casualties in the Richmond Fayette Artillery, Lt. Wm. J. Clopton commanding, in the attack on Plymouth, on the 19th inst.:

Killed.--Privates Gen. A. Benton, Jno Rourke.

Wounded.--Privates Edwin Cocke, severely in left wrist; Richard B. Dowden, slightly in left side; Wm. H. Robinson, slightly in abdomen; Wm. A. Allen, right leg shot off; James Barnes, right foot shot off; Thos. Lilias, severely in left cheek; Washington O. Martin, severely shocked by explosion of caisson.

Occasional cannonading was heard yesterday morning in the direction of Ely's ford.

A cavalry scouting expedition reports that not a Yankee is to be seen above Fredericksburg or around Falmouth. Grant has evidently been making feints, for the purpose of feeling our lines, or is endeavoring to divert attention by his manœuvres, but we opine that he will find his match when he comes to join the final issue with the redoubtable Lee.
