e within five miles of Fredericksburg when the train left Hamilton's Crossing, at half-past 2 P. M. Our scouts, who had been over the other side of the river, ascertained from citizens that the enemy went forward very reluctantly when ordered to advance. Information was also brought down by passengers on the same train that the enemy were making a general advance along the entire lines. We are disposed to believe, however, the movement is intended as a grand reconnaissance in force. From the Peninsula we have no material change to note. The enemy are busily engaged in repairing the wharf at West Point, and a few cavalry have made their appearance at that place. The forces which have been withdrawn from Charleston, and who are reported to have sailed South, may make their appearance in this direction. In evacuating Washington, North Carolina, the enemy destroyed the fortifications and everything of value there. The evacuation commenced on Thursday evening last.
