i3T"v 111 THE GALENA IIP JAMES RIVER. Success of Her Bombardment of the Rebel Batteries at Day's Point. PANIC CAUSED BY HER APPEARANCE, Ac., Ac., &e> The rebela were thrown Into a terrible panic at Peters, burg, Virginia, by the appearance of the new iron-clad < an boat Galena np James river. [From the Petersburg Express, May 9.] STARTLING INTKLLIGEHCK. ? special messenger from Captain Tucker, of the Con federate steamer Patrick Henry, arrived iu this city yes terday afternoon with the important intelligence that on* of the enemy's iron clad gunboats had silenced our bat ($rie$ at Day's Point, on James river, and was (hen coming up the river. T? save time Captain Tucker had this messenger placed on the steamer Yorktown, that being the quicker vessel, with orders to proceed at once to City Point, and thenco -to this city, to notify our Provost Marshal of the fact and telegraph tbe circumstances to Richmond. From City Point the messenger came to this city in a buggy, and at -oooe performed his duties. lfco news soon spread abroad on the streets, and ere ntod a great deal of excitement. What steps have been -or will be takes to prevent the ascent of the James river, rto aay vital point, wo do not know, and would not toll if we knew. The matter wean a teriout aspect, but no one 4>ere wil falter in any duty that muy be assigned him. Rumors were rife, after the arrival of the Norfolk train, of the bombardment by tbe onemy of tbe Craney 'Island and Sewall's Point batteries, and our fortifications elsewhere below, but, they are doubtless all unfounded. Wo shall probably hear more of this aflbir to-day. In 'the meantime we advise all to keep cool and calm, and ipurtue their ordinary avocations as usual. (From the same paper.} Late in the afternoon a rumor that one of the enemy's iroo-oiad gunboats bad como up Jumes river, silenced the Confederate batteries at Bay's Poiht, and was then leisurely feeling her way still further up, put many timid souls in a flutter, and {provoked a vast deal of discussion as to bow long it would require for tho piratical craft to reach Petersburg. We have information to tbe effect that ?one of the enemy's gunboats did come up Jamos river yesterday as far as Burwcll's Pay, and reconnoitered a little; but that her commander has any idea of coming higher up the river at this time we do not believe. There is a rumor that the Yankees wero landing forces yesterday at Bur-well's Hay, orSntitbliold, and that their intention will doubtless be to march across the country? m distance of srane eighteen or twenty miles?and take possession of Suffolk. It is proper that we should state thu rumor lacks confirmation. NEWS FROM THE PENINSULA. Observance of the Sabbath in Gen. McClellan's Army. Bridges Across the Chick&hominy Burned by the Rebels.

There has been no movement of troops to-day, as <Jeaeral MoClellan was desirous of observing the day and giving his men an opportunity to rest. Tbe reports to-day brought in by scouting parties sent to the Chickahominy on the left, a distance of thirteen ?iilos, confirms the bur-'ng of both Jonee' and the ?? bridge across that river. The enemy was seen in ^considerable force on tbe opposite side. There Is nothing new from tbe road to Richmond, by way of Bottom Itridge oa tho right hand, or the stall coach mad leading from New Kent Court Hou*e. We learn from a contraband belonging to Geo. Lee, -who left Richmond yesterday, that the troops which re. eight or ten miles this side of the city. Ho met but treated by that rosd aro encamped at the tollgate, some few troops between bore ami that point. He was driving a four borso team, containing a trunk and some private properly belonging to Gen. Lee. The tionerai's wire bad jeft the White House, and is stepping with a physician a few miles iu advance. A strung picket of the enemy made Its appearance ?bout two miles from the White Huuso to-day. They were not interfered with, until, becoming too bold, a gunboat, which arrived about one o'clock, shelled them out. The noise must have been heard at Richmond, as 41 is only twenty miles off.

[From the Petersburg (Va.) Express, May 9.] THE WAR NEWS. The announcement yesterday morning. In several of tho Richmond papers, that a bloody engagement had taken place Wednesday, in Barhamsville, New Kont county, between McClellan and Johnston 'enforces, created the most intense excitement in our commuity. The fact that several of onr citizes were known to be in Long street's division, and had probably participated in the tight, greatly augmented tho aniloty manifested here. It was also stated by passenger* on the early train from Richmond, that a courier had readied that city at an early hour yesterday morning, who left Barhamsville just at the close of the light Wednesday. This courier represented that the light had been the moat frightful in carnage of the war, and that when night closed upon the bloody scene, we had two thousand men killed and wounded, while the Yankoo loss was estimated at 0,100. Anxious inquiries wrere made on every hand, and men hung about tho tolcgraph office, as though they expected every click of tho inatrumeuts to bring them furthor intelligence from the sanguinary field. Thus matters continued until three o'clock, when a despatch was received at this office and placed upon our bulletin board, which, upon being read, immediately causod every countenanco to change its doleful appearance for one tnore pleasing to contemplate. It camo from General Johnston, who dated at Barhamsvi[Ie, Wodncsday, eleven A. M., and stated that all was quiet in the army; that the enemy had appeared porfectly contented with bis ex ploits of Monday at Williamsburg, and had evinced no disposition whatever to renew the combat. [From the Richmond Examiner, May 8.] IIIOJ1I.V IMPORTANT FROM THE I'KNINSULA. There was quite a breoze of excitemont yesterday over a reported victory of no ordinary dimensions on the pe ninsula. We were Informed on Tuesday evening that the Adjutant General had resolved a despatch of an affair of cavalry that had occurred on Monday, and that it was '?even mora brilliant than Captain Wickham's affair:" but this despatch was understood to have been sent to President Davis, and a oopy could not bo obtained for the press. Yesterday this news was magnified into an im portant battle, with the most serious consequences, nine hundrod prisoners taken and a most magnificeut prize of artillery. The fact is that the aflkir is named by General John ston us a ' haudsonie'' ono.aud we doubt not that a con siderable triumph was achiovod by our arms, although very much below tho importance attributed to it by the wild and ignorant street rumors of yesterday, it appears from what can be learned that the affliir took placo at Williamsburg. The enemy attacked our rear guard in groat force, and were driven back to tho woods about a mile. The troops principally engaged on otrr side were ? those oominondeU by General* Long* treot and Stuart. The news was magnified at different periods of the day. First it was asserted thai the enemy had been completely repulsed, with the toes of several hundred prisoners. This rumor was traced to a soldlor who arrived this morning,from below, aud solemnly Affirmed that a letter from General tycLaw* to General Cobb was read In his bearing coinmuuicnting the above information. L.ter in the day the affair was magnified again; and It was asscvurutea that the Secretary of War had received an official despatch, stating thst the loss of the enemy was heavy, that we had takon nine hundred prisoners, that wo had captured ten or twelve pieces of artillery, and that we had loft on the bloody field five hundred in killed aud wounded. Now, the Secretary of War received no such official intelligence. What he did rocotvo wsa a despatch from General Magruder, which waa written at Westover, and reached h?ru by,jray of Petersburg, and that despatch stated that Genoral Magruder had heard that such were the results of the action. LA Tea VKOM THK rSXINSt.'LA?MONDAY'S U1TTLB. We obtained last night additional particulars of the aetlen on Monday. General Longslreot s division, about six thousand strong, was engaged with the enemy from sunrise to sunset. The action occurred about a mile below Williamsburg. The fighting in doscribed to have beon very severe, but the enemy was repulsed and driven back at every point. At one time, under the deception of a white flag, a con siderable portion of the enemy got within forty paoee of our Hues. Tho flag waa carried in front by a small party, while the main body were concealed in the woods and lying down In the bushel. A murdorous lire waa thus poured into oar ranks. Colonel August, of the Forty-fifth Virginia regiment, is reported to have been killed, but the report needa con flrmatton. The seventeenth Virginia regiment is Mid to have suffered very severely. Tho report of Um iInUi of Colouel Ward, or Florida, is contradicted. A complete victory waa achieved by ua on Monday, but it is impossible to obtain with any accuracy a state ment or its results in the amount of loss on either side, the number of prisoners taken, tic. A courier who reached here iaat night stated that be had passed three hundred and twenty-Are Yankee pris oners on their way to Richmond. LATWT FROM TH? rWCHISCIJk?A (JBXIRAL ACTIO* TKffTlR DAY?TtlK lMEMY'S OtTDBOATS I!f POUmOM. At a late hour last night despatches addressed to Gen. Lee reached here by the hands of a courier. A general action took place yesterday, the enemy, with the bulk or his strength, having engaged our lines at a place called Barhamsvllle, in New Kent county, about eighteen miles abevo Williamsburg, and thirty-three miles from this city. The courier left at twelve o'clock, at| which time the action had become general. The lighting commoncod in the morning with hoary skirmishing. The statement or the courier is that In ths morning's fight we had re pulsed the enemy rour times. At a later hour positive information was received that the enemy were landing Immense forces from their gun DOHtx and transports st Barrow's Mills. This demonstration of the enemy appears to imply a flank movument with their transports. We could obtain last night nothing definite of tho re sult of yesterday's action. Rumora were plentiful, of cours#?; but we spare our readers any repetition or them. Tho single ennner who reachcd here last nlxht had rid tin mm horse a distance of more than forty miles. A relay of couriers might have obtained news of tbo action ill a very lew hours. General Lee was not in his oillco to receive the deapatchos of the courier, who reached Richmond after dark, and they had to be sent to his resi dence, where he bad retired from the burdens of his oui ctaldoak. [From the Richmond Knqulror, May 8.] THK ?NOAOSMNT NEAR WILLI AM3BUKO. The cheering intelligence from the peninsula, on yes terday, had the effect of a pleasant surprise upon tlu c tnmuniiy. The details of tho fight are, as yet, meagre but the brilliancy of the victory is uono the loos certain.' Tho first deiputches wrro slightly exaggerated, bolng, no doubt, the llrst flying report* from the scene of comlict. A participant in the fight informs us that our lose, in killed and wounded, sums up two hundred and twenty the redoral loss, in killed and woundod, Is unknowu, the' number captured by our forces Is six hundred and twenty-three. The loderais had appeared, six thousand strong, along a skirt of woods, a short distance from a small rorti Ileal ion in our possession, below Williamsburg. At an early hour on Monday morning General long street despatched a howltser to the right and another to the lert of their position, and subjecting them to a cross fire, which did tsrrlbie execution, advanced on their front, and put them to rout, taking tho above number or prisoners and oleven (not twelve) pieces or artillery. The priaoners were immediately put on the march to Rich mond, and wore exported to arrive last night. Among the killed on our side In this engagement, we regret to loam, wero Colonel Ward, ot Florida, and M%)or Wm. H. Palmer, of the First rsRiment Virginia Volunteers;Captain A. J. Humphreys, Seventeenth Vir ginia regiment. Among the wounded were Colonel Car land, or Lynchburg; Colonel Kemper, of tho Seventh Vir ginia (Speaker orjhe House or lie legs ton); Ool. Curse, Seventeenth Virginia regiment,and otnors. Conllmtlng rumors were rife last night as to the real extent or our loss, and we presume that the atatement given above is correct. The ilfsht, we have since learned, was continued on yesterday, at Barhamsvllle, which is situated on the dividing line or New Kent and Jamrs City counties, thir teen miles from Williamsburg and seven miles from the Chickahowiny river. A courier arrived here last night, who left the vicinity of the scene of action ot noon on yesterday, and brings intelligence that the tight was being conducted In tbe most terrific manner. 0?r troop* wero acting mostgallnntly and had repulsed the enemy Tor tho third time. Both sides were largely reinforced. The mutual lose is betlnvod to be very large. The roiolt Is, of course, as yet undecided. The following additional are reported to us as among the sad casualties of the lato engagements:? In the roralry engagement on Sunday, Major W. II. Payne, Fourth Virginia regiment, It Is round, waa mor tally wounded? shot through the neck. In Monday's'flght, Colonel L. B. Williams, First Virgi nia regiment, mortally wounded.

TRLKORAM TO TBI PBTKHRBCRO KXI'RRRH. Richmond, May 8,1RW. An official letter from General Johnston, dated Bar liamsville, n o'clock A. Ifyesterday states that the enemy wore landing under oover of thoir gunboats near W*bI Point. No mention IB made of the imininency ol an engagement; but, on the contrary, the tenor of the letter Indicate* that lioueril Johnston di'l not exp?'Ct a conflict with tho enemy. He status that the repulse of the enemy at Williamsburg seems to have stopped their ad vance in that direction altogether. The prisoners taken on Monday were principally from Heintzelman's division and partly from Sumner's. Nothing U said of the extent of casualties on either aide. TUJt ADVANCK ON RICHMOND. [Corresjiondeiice of the Charleston Mercury.] Richmond, April 30, The evacuation of Yorktown may be looked for at an early day. In the first place, the Yankeo gunboats in York river are throwing ? ne hundred and twenty pound conical shell at our shore batteries from a distance of three and a half miles?far beyond the reach of auy cannon we have?three of oar best guns having burst during the last week. Another gun was received on Monday, from which results were expected. My in formant says thatsevun of these groat shells were flrud into the battery while ho was present. Five exploded, killing one man, a Georgia soldier, who was staudia.- in tho door of his tent,some distance in the rear of our bat teries. Of the two that did not oxplode, one buria l it self nine and the other twelve foot in the earth. In tho next place, the Yankees have been permitted to throw up breastworks a uiilo lung within twelve hundred yards of the village of Yorktown. Given tho gunboats and the intrenchments, with their long range ordnanro, and the evacuation of Yorktowu follows by necessity. The Enquirer or this morning confirms the conclusions drawn trom the statements made to in* last evening, by a gentleman just from the peninsula, and which have Just been narrated. Our soldiers have hard work ?'? the trenches, and many sick htve been moved to the rear. Th* artillery practice of the enmy is laid to be splenHd. Tho probabilities increase daily of <t decisive balle near the Chictcahominy Si vamp, some Urn or twelve miles from the city. The nearer the better for its. In that event, sovoral weeks will be consumed by the enemy's advance. Serenade to Mrs. General McClellan by the Seventh Regiment Band?Spirited Scene at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, 4e. At a late hour last evening a great number of people were gathered together outside the Fifth Avenuo Hotel on tho sidewalks and in Madison park, to witness the serenado by the Seventh regiment band, in honor of the

accomplished wife of our gallant young chioftaiu, Go;i. McClellan. The night was extremely mild and pleasant' and everything conspired to mike the affair pass off agreeably. The scene inside and outside tho hotel was therefor* quite enlivening. Most of the members of the National Guard were present, accompanied by ladies,aud the corridors of tho hotel were literally crammod with people, while tho balcony and windows wore oqually crowded. On tho carriage way just in front of the grand ontrauue a spicious platform for tho musicians wm fitted up with every convenience?cluiirs, music stands and gas light being furnished in abitnlanco. Ltko most affairs of tho kind, tho sercnaders woro not up to time. Ten, half-past, eleven, and h-iir-past oleven ar rived, but no musicians made their appeararce. To add to the dissatisfaction, it was reported thit in tho early part of the avonlng tho hand of the .Seventy-first regiment would serenade Mrs. McClellan on thoir return from Kast New York; but up to midnight no indication o: such an occur rence took place. How tho rumor spread we could hot ascertain, but great disappointment was occasioned by it, as many of those in attendance expected tho diubl > treat of two serenades in one evening. At length.aliout a quarter to twelve, the Sovealli regiment band cams up and took their places on the platform, while Colonel I .efforts repaired to the reception room of Mrs. Model Ian, to notify her that tho screnadurs ware in all -ndance. All oyes were instantly directed to the wind >ws where it was oxpected sho would show herself, but aftor a pro voking delay, instead of Mrs. McClellan, Colonel Liflerts appeared and waved his handkerchief as a signal for the music to begin. The band struck up (,Tho Hod, White and Blue'' with groat spirit, which was enthusiastically applauded by the listeners. The "Serenade from Don rasqualo" and the ''Sounds of Spring PeUca" wore next poriormed in a splendid man ner, and when the music of these piecs had pist ceased to Qow, Mrs. McClellan, ac ompauiod by her awthar, Mrs. Marry, appeared In person at the window, and was re. coivekl with a shout of wild joy that could be hiard for blocks around. Choer followed cheer, swelling louder and louder, until it almost soemod the roar would never cease, enthusiastic wore tho populace. An Amork-au flag was waved from tho window where the object of Ml the furoer stood, and this circumstance added to the en thusiastic clamor. When something like siliucc was again restored, Mr. Grafula, the accomplished leader of the tun I, gave the signal,and the baud followed with a succession of musical selection* from the opera, principally "Traviata" and other choice pieces, all of which won executed in th* most artistic manner. At a quarter past one o'clock this morning our reporter left, the serenm'e being still unfinished, and tho crowd of listeners swelled to thou sands and thousands. Th* affair passed off in ? most agreeable manner. 8RRBNADK TO MRS. flgNF.RAL VIILI. It was the intention last ovouing, aftor the sorenade to Mrs. General McClellan had been concluded, to have serenaded Mrs. General Vio!*, but owing to the latones* of the hour it was deferred until this evening, whon th* band of th* National Guard will perform some choioe ptucos in front of that lady's rosidouce. Excitement at the City Mall. THE PKMALK RELATIVES OF THK VOLUNTEERS DK MANItlNO REI.IKP?INTERVIEW WITH MAYOR OP DTK, ETC., ETC. Between ten and eleven o'clock yestorday morning an immense crowd of women?young, old, married, tingle, foreign and native?gal tiered in the vestibule of the City Hall for the purpose of consulting with Mayor Opdyko re garding the money appropriated by the Common Council fer the relief of the families of volunteers. The cause of the gathering was the exhaustion of the relief fund placed, at the disposal of the Comptroller. The unfortunate wo men were laboring under the intensest excitement, and clamored for assistance in the most noisy manner, al though repeatedly told that the money voted for their relief had boon all distributed. The poor creatures,some of whom had infants in their arms and noomivl to be really in want, would not listen to reason, and the more they were argued with the more boisterous and noisy they became. Some domandod an interview with the Mayor, and urged the rsst to march into his office for that purpose. Tho usual quiet and order of that ofllce were somewhat disturbed by the Babel of Jabbering, complaining, threatening and crying, to which the women in their excitement gave vent. Mayor Opdyke kindly came out to reason with his visit or*, and addressed thorn ip (tip most ourteotp and feeling manner, expUfning that thi Coinpirofle r'sftioils had run out, snd that further reliof was out of the question until a new appropriation should bo mato by the Common Ciuucil. lie regretted, he said, thoir suf ferings, but be|4 oqt no hope that the Corporation would ufce any nirthor steps to relieve them. The Mayor then retired, lesvlng his visitors quite as dissatisllod as befbre his appearance. The women were quite fierce in their threats, and s >me endeavored to break through tho door of ths Mayor's privato room, with the view, they xald, or getting "a civil answer." The police were obliged to interfere and eiect tho women from the room by the use of a little physical force. Up to one o'clock the oxcitoment continued, though several of tho women bad left after the interview with the Mayor. We under stand that this female demonstration was occasioned by sonic malicious party inserting tho annexed call ia some of yesterday morning's papers:? A mooting of the wires or toidters now at the war will be iielit on Monday, Mav 12, at the Rotunda, in the City llall Park, to n-celre their money aa usual. Tim genius of m'scbiet was anvmg the women, and prompted them to nay and do many things tliey would doubtless regret in thoir sober sensos. Some threatened to give the Mayor a kettle serenade last evening at his privato reeideno-, but no such demonstration took place. It is muted that Mr. Opdyko recently received a letter, signed by several officers of s Now York regiment, com plaining that no pay had been given them for six months. The Mayor has referred the matter to Governor Morgan, who will inquire into the matter without delay. THE MAILS FOR EUROPE. Closing tp tk?
