From Fredericksburg.

Our latest reports from Fredericksburg are of an interesting character, and indicate a Federal stampedes from that point. As early at Thursday a decided uneasiness was manifested among the invaders there, and preparations were in progress for a speedy exit. An unusual number of vessels of different descriptions have ascended the Rappahannock river, and other means of transportation were being used in the removal of the vast amount of stores that, it is understood, were accumulated at that place. It is not unlikely that the stores are being removed under the apprehension that our forces design an attack upon that point. From developments which reach us of the movements of the enemy in the Valley of Virginia, and along the fine of the Rappahannock, we are warranted in believing there is evident fear existing in the Federal capital that there is to be a change of policy in the future conduct of the war. Time must decide the ground for such apprehensions.
