Petersburg, Nov. 21.
--The flag of truce boat at City Point to-day brought over 100 paroled Confederate prisoners. New York, Washington, and Baltimore papers, of the 19th are received. All agree that the Grand Army has taken up the line of march for Fredericksburg. Hooker's Sumner's, and Franklin's corps all moved from Warrenton Sunday and Monday for Aquia Creek. The Tribune says that

‘ "Burnside originates the movement, and his heart is in it. It means business, rapid marching, and a change of base to a more direct defensible line. It means Richmond. Among division and corps commanders the belief prevails that under Burnside there will be no more fruitless drawn battles. When the clash of arms comes again it will bring a crowning victory or an overwhelming defeat. It will be a day big with the fate of the Republic." ’ The Philadelphia Inquirer says the Fredericksburg base is considered the best one for operations upon the heart of Virginia.

A dispatch from Nashville, 18th, says General Rosecrans and his command are within 12 miles of the city.

McClellan has gone to Philadelphia, where an immense reception waits him.

No change in gold at New York. Exchange on Tuesday 146½.
