The enemy's movements.

Reports continue to reach us of the movements of the enemy in the vicinity of the Rapidan. It was stated yesterday that several regiments of infantry and a squadron of cavalry were on this side of the river; and that the waters had suddenly rises, rendering it impossible to recross by fording. It was thought probable that an attempt would be made to keep open communication with the main body of the Federal army by means of a bridge at a point some distance from the railroad station, but with what prospect of success we are unable to say.
