We hear to-day to-day to-day from Richmond. An omni bus with four horses, driven by a mulatto, and having two African gentlemen as inside passengers, came into Heintzelman's camp this afternoon, amid more laughter and cheering than 1 have heard in a year. A South Carolinian chartered it this morning of tbe keeper of the Columbia House, to remove wounded friends from the field of the Seven Pines. Jehu, of mulatto tint, drove the four bays right into our pickets. on Casey's old ground. The South Carolinian tumbled tumbled out of the 'bus, and ran like a lamplighter away from his grinning driver, and the dangerous consequences consequences of his impudent mistake. A musket ball topped his flight, and the bus and the three blacks were sent to head quarters. 1 lie driver, a very sharp fellow, says that the rebel wounded of yesterday yesterday are awfully numerous that every carriage in Richmond was impressed to carry them away that all the houses in the city contain more or Uss of them, and there was talk of turning the hotels into hospitals that the inhabitants are removing to Danville, and that the army was retreating from before us in large masses. Corresiiondence of the New York Tribune from the army near Richmond.
