Capture of Yorktown.

Gen. McClellan has done a glorious work in driving the rebels out of their stronghold at Yorktown. Their evacuation of the place seems to have been like a rout. They retreated in dismay and disorder. Where they will be able to make another stand in Virginia, we are unable to see. We do not believe they will attempt to. With the columns of Gen. Banks, Gen. Fremont, and Gen. McDowell pressing upon Richmond in front and McClellan's grand army upon their flank, they have nothing to hope for. Richmond will in a few days be in our possession and Virginia in a fortnight will be freed from rebel control. We shall not be surprised if McClellan yet gets to Richmond before Mcgruder does. Everything seems to be coming out right.
