Yankee Destructiveness.

We have been informed by a gentleman from Fredericksburg that the cloth captured there by the Yankees on Sunday week, and which was estimated to be worth about $7,000, was destroyed by them a few miles from the town. The wagons in which they had the cloth stalled, and fearing that they would be pursued and the goods recaptured, they at once set to work to destroy them. Some of it they succeeded in cutting in pieces, but the great bulk of it was burned.
