A Panic in Richmond. The Richmond Enquirer, of the 29th August, says:— Considerable excitement was occasioned in the city on Thursday night, and was kept up during the day on Friday, by a report, brought by couriers and passengers from the White-house, that the enemy, 8,000 strong, was advancing upon the city. At an early hour General Elney, in command of this department, proceeded to make the best pos- sible disposition of the forces under his command for the defence of the metropolis. As usual, upon such occasions, the city was soon filled with rumours in regard to the reported advance and strength of the enemy—some estimating it as high as 10,000, consisting of infantry, artillery, and cavalry. At a late hour last night we were in- formed, by an officer just from Bottom's Bridge, that the force of the enemy consisted of 400 cavalry of the 11th Pennsylvania Regiment, Colonel Spears. The party came from Williamsburg as far as Bottom's Bridge, where they encountered and drove in our pickets, after a short skirmish, resulting in no casualties on either side, as far as could be ascertained. The Yankees then fled back to-New Kent Court-house, not forgetting to break into the store-house of a farmer on their route and steal all his bacon. Here they stopped the re- mainder of the night, and the following morning started on their return to Williamsburg. We are also informed that a party of our men gave the Yankees chase, and coming up with them a slight skirmish ensued, which resulted in the death of one of the invaders. One of our men is said to have been accidentally shot by a brother soldier. This we believe to be a correct statement. And thus ends the last On to Richmond.
